Track Name: Tossing & Turning
I'm tossing, I'm turning
I'm begging you, I'm yearning
I spend my nights awake,
There ain't no give and take,
My fire still burns.

I guess I'm just confused,
Oh, about me and you,
'Cause I look into your eyes,
And girl I realize
That you feel it too.

Fuck all these concerns.
They just block your eyes.
Caution isn't something that we need to exercise.
Even if it hurts,
I don't really mind.
It's worth it even if it leads to my demise,
Leads to my demise.

AHH AHHH AHH

Yes, it's been over a year
And I know what you fear,
But cut in half I'm twice the man than anyone you'll find.
I'm tired of this shame,
Just wanna say your name.
My other one, she knows about you, and she doesn't mind.

Fuck all my concerns.
We all can see this through.
If it helps, oh, just a little,
I hate myself too.
Please don't walk away,
Do something today.
Take a chance, take the gamble,
We all can see this through,
We all can see this through.

AHH AHHH AHH

I'm tossing, I'm turning
I'm begging you, I'm yearning
I spend my nights awake,
There ain't no give and take,
My fire still burns.
Track Name: The Sun Sets
The sun still sets at the end of a perfect day
And there's always a frown after a perfect smile.
Even the best bottles, they still dry out
And heaven gets old after awhile.
After awhile...

How long will this happiness last?
I hope I'm wrong, but it disappears fast.
So walk out that door,
It happened before.
Love equals pain, that's what's in store.

They say time heals all wounds,
But right now, it cuts deep too.
It makes, it makes everything old,
Like me & you.
Me & you...

How long did our happiness last?
I wish I was wrong, but it disappeared fast.
You walked out that door,
Oh, just like before.
Love equals pain, that's what's in store.

That's what time brings.
The sun sets on all things.
Perfection needs an ending to be.
To be...

Track Name: Never Been
I've never been much of a risk taker.
Sometimes I wish that I'd had.
And now there's more stacked up behind me
Than possibilities that lie ahead.
It's so hard now to look back and not be flooded with regret.
The truths I never told,
The things I'll never really know,
Outnumber all the things I did.

I've never been much of a storyteller.
What's the point? They always end the same.
However hard they try, the characters all die.
All they do is rearrange their names.
We're all players in this fairy tale penned by that sadistic man above.
Well, he ran me into you,
There was nothin' you or I could do.
Now we've been cursed with this love.

Oh, I've read all the stories,
And I've heard every sad song.
Yes, I know and I understand,
But that don't make this any less hard.
I said that don't make this any less hard.

I've never been too good at patience.
It's hard sometimes to let things just unfold.
I always end up crushing everything I love,
And nothing gets a chance to grow old.
Now I've gone and smothered you.
How can I redeem myself, my love?
Just give me one more chance, one more kiss, one more dance.
You're my family, you're my blood.
Just gimme one more chance, one more kiss, one more dance,
'Cause you're my family, you're my blood.
'Cause you're my family, you're my blood.
Track Name: My Song
Packed my bags, tonight's the night.
I'm leaving here, for good this time.
Better to leave too soon,
Than overstay and crowd the room.
Soon I'll be a memory,
I guess that's all we're meant to leave.

And so, I take a step and can't turn back.
Turn around, I'm gone.
I leave you absolutely nothing in my wake.
Nothing but my song.

I'm sorry to break the news,
But when it's time, nobody gets to choose.
Please don't cry, oh, you'll be fine.
You let me down, but it's alright.
When life gets dark, please don't fear.
There's part of me that's always here.

I take a step and can't turn back.
Turn around, I'm gone.
I leave you absolutely nothing in my wake.
I swear there's nothing that I have you'd wanna take.
And though, you might get so mad you'd wanna break,
At least you'll have my song.

LA LA LA LA
