Track Name: Better Days
Better Days

Verse 1
I’m not the only one - I’m not the only one saying
I’m not the only one saying you stepped out of line
I’m not the bitter man
I’m not the bitter man you left behind.

Chorus:
Is there a reason you’ve changed your mind?
Are your decisions meant to lead the blind?
Or are you just searching to find your way to live for yesterday?

Verse 2:
You’re not the only one,
You’re not the only one with memories.
You’re not the only one,
You’re not the only one with pain.

Chorus

Bridge:
Turn away let her take her fall
She’s gotta learn she can lose it all

Chorus

Tag:
Or are you just searching to find your way to live your life for better days, not yesterday.
Track Name: Fighting For Control
Fighting For Control

Verse 1:
All that I wanted to be was on my own two feet
Until you knocked me down and taught me how to bleed

Pre-chorus:
You’re holding on to what you’ve seen
But baby time’s been good to me
You’re holding on to what you think you saw..

Chorus:
But baby there’s more and I need your hope
You can’t be sure of what you don’t know
I can be all you need - trust in me
Trust in me to fix a love that’s old

Verse 2:
Fighting for control over what we never could own
I know that you think I’ll be holding you back
But since you’ve gone baby I’ve grown

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Bridge:
And when you’re on your own
Tell me that you ain’t ever missing me at all
And when you’re on your own
Tell me you’re happy… tell me you’re whole…

Chorus
Track Name: Stay
Stay

Verse 1:
Well it’s all laughter and fun
For the first few months
When the charm is still turned on
You’re thinking she’s the one

Pre-Chorus:
And then the waves - the bastard waves of time
They bring the grave to our love as they sweep by so..

Chorus:
Stay baby stay
Don’t let the sweetness of the sirens calls carry you away
Cus I won’t let them just take you back from me
Hear me baby as I’m falling at your feet baby stay

Verse 2:
No fights since we met
No it’s all been laughter and cheer
But when ugly rears its head
Will you still be here?

Chorus
Track Name: I'll Never Say
I’ll Never Say

Verse 1:
You can say we’re in love
Just cus you say it don’t make it true
I never said that I loved you

What’s that you’re whispering of?
I guess that you just went ahead and assumed
Well babe assuming can hurt you

Chorus:
Take it from someone who’s been there before
Take it from someone who’s been on the lines of war
And I won’t say it no not even if it’s true
I’ll never say that I loved you

Verse 2:
The one who keeps his mouth shut
Wise as an owl and never shows his cuts
And no one knows that he’s hurting, no…

If you take the first shot
Chances are it’s not long before you’re downed
You know that everything comes around

Chorus

Verse 3:
I guess we all have our turn
What good is life if you never ever learn?
I’ll tell you baby I’m learning

Chorus
Track Name: Remarkable Plans
Remarkable Plans

Verse 1:
Only takes a moment to get it right
Only takes a second to fail
But if you play like a fool
Suffer the rules to make it right

Only takes a minute to see it through
That’s when it matters the most
Stay true to the girl
Give her the world and she’ll hold on to you

Chorus:
Even through the sound of the wind and the sirens
Caught my eye with a wink and a smile and
I fell without a doubt
Till you opened up your mouth

I bet it all on a whim and a weakness
Going out on a limb and it’s leafless
Baby don’t you cut me down

Verse 2:
Maybe there’s a reason to tell the truth
Maybe there’s a reason to hide
But your remarkable plans lay dead in the sand
Like they were made for you

Baby there’s no way we can get it right
Without breaking some rules

Chorus

Bridge:
Through the sound of sirens
With a wink and just a smile and
You opened up your mouth

Down Verse:
Only takes a moment to get it right
Only takes a second to fail..

Chorus:
Even through the sound of the wind and the sirens
Caught my eye with a wink and a smile and
I fell without a doubt
Till you opened up your mouth

I bet it all on a whim and a weakness
Going out on a limb and I need this
Baby don’t you cut me down

Tag:
Baby don’t you cut me, baby don’t you cut me
Baby don’t you cut me down.
Track Name: Losing Ground
Losing Ground

Verse 1:
I’ve been on my own too long
I’m tired of myself
I’ve been on my own two feet
It’s about time that I fell

You’ve noticed I’m a man of my word
You’ve seen the reaction
So now I plan to be a man of my heart
And put my head out of action

Pre-Chorus:
I’d readily make another mistake if it means
You’re there when I need

Chorus:
Someone to be around (but every time)
I feel I’m losing ground (well never you mind)
How long it takes me
Maybe love will provide

Verse 2:
I need a lover who will settle the score
Not try to write me a new one
And though I make her feel like never before
It’s my heart or my tongue would you choose one

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Bridge:
Take me away to another place unknown
Where I’m breathing again, I’m wondering when
Someone will take me and love will provide

I’d readily make another mistake…

Chorus
Track Name: Second Best
Second Best

Verse 1:
I don’t want your promise - all I want is you
I don’t need your reasons - reasons don’t ring true

I don’t wanna be pushed to the side
Second guessing my obsession

Chorus:
And I’ll be forever holding your hand
The one you can stand on through stormy weather
I’ll stay through the rain and hope that you’ll come back again.

Verse 2:
I don’t want no trouble - I don’t want no pain
I just want to feel that I can make someone happy again

I don’t wanna be pushed to the side
Second best is still a blessing

Chorus:
And I’ll be forever holding your hand
The one you can stand on through stormy weather
I’ll stay through the rain and hope that you’ll come back to me again
I hope that you’ll come back again
Track Name: Fooled Me
Fooled Me

Verse 1:
Did I fall for all your games?
Or are you really just that innocent?
Am I just another name?
Baby tell me do you feel anything?

Chorus:
You wear that halo on your head
And you fooled me baby
And when you gave me your bed
Well you fooled me baby
And when your face was painted red
You took me by surprise and you fooled me baby

Verse 2:
They should paint it on your door
An “X” for all the ones that came before
They took your lies they took your lies as truth, as gospel oh.
Is there anything real; is there anything real about you?

Chorus

Bridge:
Can you tell me what are you trying to prove by baiting my pride, I’m hung out to dry…
Don’t you know that when you hide it there’s nothing to lose
Is losing my love not on the line?

Down Chorus

Chorus
You wear that halo on your head
And you fooled me baby
And when you gave me your bed
Well you fooled me baby
And when your face was painted red
You took me by surprise and you laid before my eyes
And you fooled me baby
Track Name: Le Cafe De Flore
Le Café De Flore

Verse 1:
I’m thinking about my masterpiece
All these trophies on the wall
I’m thinking about how young I am
I’ll see the day where they fall

Chorus:
Tell me you’re watching me
Tell me you see me from wherever you are
You faded so far away
Tell me you’re watching me
Tell me you see me from the great halls
With the white light at the door

Verse 2:
And never has anyone asked me why
I feel I deserve to sit and write
And not find my way breeding pain
Washing dishes in the back room well I’d say…
That you said it’s alright

Chorus:
Tell me you’re watching me
Tell me you see me from wherever you are
You faded so far away
Tell me you’re watching me
Tell me you see me from the great halls
With the white light at the door
From a distance I don’t see you anymore…
Track Name: Lost Without You
Lost Without You

Verse:
Hold on, don’t go blowing out the fire
Hold on for just a little while

Don’t rid me from the books just yet
Won’t you let me find my head
Won’t you at least let me breathe before you leave

Chorus:
Don’t let me go
Don’t leave me out here on my own
Don’t think that I’ll find my way home
I’m lost without you, I’m lost without you.. you…


Verse 2:
So come out with all your lies
And I won’t be at all surprised

Just to think I held your hand
Just to think I let you call me your man
