Track Name: Half as Bad
Too much
You can feel it, when you exhale,
The air is much too thick.

New touch
You can hear it, when the words fail,
And they plummet from your lips.

Keep those hungry eyes.
All we had is more than what you want.
Feed my fragile side.
Half as bad is more than good enough.
Track Name: Pretty Wreck
I met her late last fall,
It was a party at a friend of a friend of a friend's house.
It started casual, nothing deep,
just a little bit of small talk.
But then a few drinks in,
the mood in the room started shifting,
The way she talked about the world, I knew she was different.

I said, "I know your type with the laugh and the smile,
But there's so much pain behind those pretty eyes.
If I show you the mess that I am inside, would you stay awhile?"

She said
"Take me home,
I wanna be alone together,
Hold somebody close.
You don't have to say you love me if you don't."
Well, I know you've got issues,
and you know I'm messed up too.
But tonight, let's set a fire and let it burn too bright,
and be such a pretty wreck.

I never thought she'd stay.
Thought I'd wake up alone, while she slipped out the back door.
And she would run away,
when she found out I was damaged goods.

She said, "I know your type, too afraid to let go.
So you play it safe, and you go it alone.
If I told you that I feel the same way though,
Would you stay awhile?"

I said,
"Take me home,
I wanna be alone together,
Hold somebody close.
You don't have to say you love me if you don't."
Well, I know you've got issues,
and you know I'm messed up too.
But tonight, let's set a fire and let it burn too bright,
and be such a pretty wreck.

And now the fires getting cold,
And we don't talk much, if at all.
And as we're driving down this road,
the weight becomes too much to hold.
She breaks down and it falls out...

She says,
"Take me home,
we shouldn't feel alone together.
What have we become?
You shouldn't have to say you love me if you don't..."

Take me home,
and tell me that you'll stay forever,
and you still need my touch.
You can leave if you want, but I hope that you won't.
Track Name: Crash into Me
I am a lost child.
I’ve wandered for years now.
Accustomed to being alone.

You are a lighthouse.
A beacon of just how
I dreamt it would feel to come home.

This world is so much colder than I remember,
But when you said my name, it’s like you shook my earth.
And when you say you’ll stay, it sounds like sacred words.
So won’t you break me down.

And crash into me.
Just crash into me
Break me with your touch please
Shatter me, then fix me.
Tell me that you won’t leave,
even when it get’s deep.
Crash into me,
and break me.

I have a short fuse,
and so much left to lose
I’ve never been down this road.

Your arms are refuge.
I surrender to you.
You taught me to care for someone.

This world is so much different than I thought it was.
I was so unfamiliar with returning love.
Just be patient with me, you have all my trust.
Won’t you break me down.

You have my heart.
You have my soul.
You have it all, it all, it all.

And I know in my soul that you would never lie,
because you’re not the type
to throw my trust aside.
And I know in my soul that you would never lie,
because you’re not the type.
Please tell me that I’m right.

Tell me you wouldn’t.
Oh, tell me you wouldn’t.
Cause I don’t want to believe this.
Track Name: Selling Secrets
Too cool, calm, and collected.
Black dress and she's leaving you breathless.
Too many secrets to count.

She speaks like a natural disaster.
A "sweeter touch", she says it's all that she's after.
The fever sets in, she sits under your skin,
Just begging to take you down.

All this time you were selling me lines,
Well, did you ever mean a word?
All this time kissing with your eyes wide,
Well, your lips just made me hurt.
Bleed, cut me deep, you're the poison in my dreams
All this time you were selling me lines,
Well, shame on me, cause I bought it every time.

Too cool, smooth, and attractive.
Won't quit til the drama gets drastic.
Too many secrets to sell.

She speaks like a call to action.
Real money but the smile is plastic.
The games in check, she'll be stacking the deck,
Begging to take you down.

She's been counting cards all night, she's going all in.

Cause you're too cool,
and it's hard to lose when you make the rules.
You're sick, sad, selfish, amazing.
Attention fools: take a number and a spot in line.
If it's happened once, then it's bound to happen twice.
Just fold the hand that you're playing, she's cashing in.
Track Name: Right Next to You
I think I like your attitude.
How you just do what you wanna do.
They way you wear your favorite shoes,
even with the holes all through 'em.

Maybe this is too soon,
Maybe you just got me confused.
Maybe it's the things you do,
But every time I look at you...

I don't know what it is,
But I'm thinking that I wanna fall asleep with you.
I don't know what it is,
But I'm thinking that maybe I'm in love with you.
I think it's how you don't care if people stare,
I'm not going anywhere.
I'm down to stick around,
you know that it doesn't matter what it is,
I just wanna be right next to you.

I think I like your humor too.
Quick wit, and sarcastic when I'm talking to you.
You don't give a damn what we do.
Drive around and raise hell, me and you under the blue moon.

Maybe this is too soon,
But I can't keep from falling all over you.
Maybe it's the things you do.
But every time I look at you...

Maybe it's your attitude,
Maybe it's your humor too.
Well, I don't know what it is that you do,
but I know that I'm in love with you.
Track Name: Symmetry (Coming Home)
She said,
"Tell me what you want,
kiss me with a cause,
let your lips start talking.
Undress me with every word."

I said,
"Should we take it there?
Let you know I care?
If my lips start talking,
they'll tell you I want this."
I want this, I want this,
Oh, more than you know.

Just hold my heart and call it home.
Touch my soul, I'm only yours.
Good god, you're all I need.
Come rest your head on me.
Don't ever leave me alone,
and kiss me like coming home.

Take aim let the arrow go,
Shoot me lovely looks,
keep the whispers coming.
We move in symmetry.

Fast-paced, let the limits go.
Just what you want,
It's you and me darling,
We don't have to prove anything.
Track Name: The Morning
It's been three years to the day
since I watched it all burn down.
Things have been alright.
I guess, things have seemed just fine.
But I don't feel okay.

I've got alot going.
I should be happy.

None of this will matter in the morning.
None of this will wash the pain away.
It won't save my soul, when I decide it's time to go.
None of this will matter in the morning.

It's been two years come this May.
Since I watched them walk away.
I lost all my friends in an all out war.
They took their bows, and they locked their doors.
And I don't feel okay.

They say, "You've got alot going.
You should be happy."

It's been hell these past few days.
I just want to fade away.
But when my sister tells me, "Please hold on."
Cause without me she just can't go on.
I know I need to be okay.

I've got alot going,
I deserve to be happy.

I thought none of this would matter in the morning.
I thought none of this would wash the pain away.
But when I opened up the blinds
and took a step into the light.
I woke up to a bright and brand new morning.

All the days and the nights I felt so alone.
In my bed, in the dark, where I made my home.
All the fights, and the fire, and the bedroom floor.
I can't let this pull me down anymore.

Because none of those things matter in the morning.
No, none of those things matter in the morning.
