Track Name: Bottle It Up
Life goes faster
I'd rather be brave than what you're after babe
It moves through chapters
With no way to know what's on the next page

Bottle it up the way we feel right now
Whenever I get lonely gonna drink a little down
Bottle it up the way you're holding me
If ever I get lonely gonna pour myself a drink

All your patience
Winds down that road to frustration
And all we've dreamt of
Will crash and burn should it turn into love

Bottle it up the way we feel right now
Whenever I get lonely gonna drink a little down
Bottle it up the way you're holding me
If ever I get lonely gonna pour myself a drink

I cross my heart
I don't need a man's hands to open the jar
Where I've captured and kept safe
The things that I'm willing to share with you babe

Bottle it up the way we feel right now
Whenever I get lonely gonna drink a little down
Bottle it up the way you're holding me
If ever I get lonely gonna pour myself a drink
Track Name: City Lights
Last thing I remember
Before things all went black
The promise of tomorrow
Vanished like the past

I can't feel my fingers
Breath swirls up like smoke
Clouds draw back like curtains
I'm ready to let go

Yeah and I can see the city lights shining
I can hear the cars drive by
I wonder where they're going to

Traffic flows like water
Rivers, white and red
Some roads stretch forever
Some come to an end

Yeah and I can see the city lights shining
I can hear the cars drive by
I wonder where they're going to

Control can be an illusion
Ropes me to my edge
Free to feel my heartbeat
Cold feet press the ledge

Yeah and I can see the city lights shining
I can hear the cars drive by
I wonder where they're going to
Track Name: Don't Say That You Love Me
I been on the outside looking in
I was always waiting, for life to begin

And I feel alright now
Ain't nothing gonna bring me down
And I feel alright, yeah
Whenever you're around

There's a sense of danger
So, I hesitate
Keep my heart protected
And keep myself safe

And I feel alright now
Ain't nothing gonna bring me down
And I feel alright, yeah
Whenever you're around

Don't say that you love me
'Cause I heard those words before
Don't say that you love me
Only makes me want you more

And I feel alright now
Ain't nothing gonna bring me down
And I feel alright, yeah
Whenever you're around

But don't say that you love me
Say that you love me
Don't say that you love me
Say that you love me

A swirl of confusion
I'm in a daze
Hoping that this time
Ain't just another phase

And I feel alright now
Ain't nothing gonna bring me down
And I feel alright, yeah
Whenever you're around

Don't say that you love me
'Cause I heard those words before
Don't say that you love me
Only makes me want you more

And I feel alright now
Ain't nothing gonna bring me down
And I feel alright, yeah
Whenever you're around

Don't say that you love me
Say that you love me
Track Name: Multiple Choice
Your skin is dappled in dark leaves
Shadows cast by the moon behind the trees
Windows cracked, lets in a cool breeze
Wondering what the hell's come over me

Should I follow my dreams or follow my heart
How you've torn them both apart

Moonlight, makin’ its way in
It's not what's bright that's keepin’ me awake
I close the curtains, shut the blinds
But they're busted and the fabrics thin
Nothin' lasts forever
It don't matter how well it's made

Should I follow my dreams or follow my heart
How you've torn them both apart
Should I follow my dreams or follow my heart
And I'm hopin' that you won't be woken when my engine starts

Oh, why
Won’t somebody please tell me why
I feel this way
All I know how to say is
I'm sorry, it’s over
I don't wanna talk about it
I'll be alright
It hurts when I'm sober
I don't wanna talk about it
I'll be just fine
But never has it ever been this hard to say goodbye

Should I follow my dreams or follow my heart
How you've torn them both apart
Should I follow my dreams
Or follow my heart
Track Name: Now Or Never
My heart is black and blue
Hurt yourself, I feel it too
Vacant eyes, do you see me cry
Well I guess it was worth a try

You've been at the bar too long
Look around, your friends are gone
Come home, I've been waiting for you
Wondering why it all fell through

Yeah, you ask me to wait
So I wait, feels like forever
It's got to be now or never

I don't wanna wait for somethin' real
Like a thief with nothin' to steal
Fool’s gold fills an empty chest
Broken love and bitterness

Yeah, you ask me to wait
So I wait, feels like forever
It's got to be now or never
Track Name: Tonight
I've been here before
And boys like you
Make me wanna spend my nights alone
I already know the end
I never wanted you to walk me home
I don't know what drove you in the state of my mind
I think you should go
You wasted so much of my time

Tonight
I don't want you
Tonight

Dark red, fragrant roses
Would make anybody blush
A warm embrace, a handsome face
Could give any lonely heart a rush
I'm confused

But that don't take away my right to refuse
If you let me choose
I wouldn't do something that I don't want to

Tonight
I don't want you
Tonight
I don't need you
Track Name: Dust
From a hole in the curtains streams a blade of morning light
I lie here restless with him dreaming by my side
The dust is dancing as it sparkles and shines
I got that same thing on my mind

She was right, what she said, what she told me I'd become
That I'd be just like her, I'd be nothing but knocked up by twenty-one
I bear his child, and so therefore I must stay
But I wish that I too could float away

He'll wake up in an hour or so
I'll pack his sack lunch and then off to work he'll go
And maybe he'll kiss me before he says goodbye
And I will wait to hear the sound of his engine before I cry

Yeah, maybe he'll kiss me before he says goodbye
And I will wait to hear the sound of his old Ford before I cry
The dust is dancing still so weightless, so free
Everything I know I'll never be
Track Name: Long Way Home
Nine times out of ten I'll take my own cab home
Thank him for the drinks and spend the night alone
But when I feel as high as my soul does low
The angel on my shoulder dares to show

I take the long way home
I take the long way home
After all you put me through

Love is just a liar by another name
Lust is just a fire I've been tryin' to tame
I fuel it if I must but keep the heat contained
It's the winds inside my heart that fan my flame

I take the long way home
I take the long way home
After all you put me through
Yeah, I take the long way home
I take the long way home
Where I haven't gone is where you led me to

Out here on this dark road
I'm not even sure
If I wanna make it to my door
Lately it don't keep the peace
That I need to sleep anymore

Nine times out of ten I'll write my number wrong
If I wasn't lonesome, how would I stay strong
When depression's dark as the night is long
A pair of arms becomes where I belong

I take the long way home
I take the long way home
After all you put me through
Yeah, I take the long way home
I take the long way home
After all you put me through
And I take the long way home
I take the long way home
What I haven't done is what you made me do

Nine times out of ten I take my own cab home
Thank him for the drinks and spend the night alone
Track Name: Loneliness
It happened fast
The reflection of our past
I'm the stars, and you're the lake
And my light bounced back
And all of our tomorrows
Fell behind
And true love is just a treasure
Too hard to find

How come loneliness is something we don't talk about
Broken promises, hardly ever spoke aloud

I picture you now
With your head in your hands
Trying to breathe
Trying to be a better man
As she folds herself
To the edge of the bed
You wanna scream
But say goodnight instead

How come loneliness is something we don't talk about
Broken promises, hardly ever spoke aloud
I can't do this anymore
Is my heart worth fighting for?

When I was younger, days were brighter
Oh how fresh paint fades
Now I'm a little bit older
And a little less brave

How come loneliness is something we don't talk about
Broken promises, hardly ever spoke aloud
I can't do this anymore
Is my heart worth fighting for?
How come loneliness is something we don't talk about
It’s something I don't talk about

Something we don’t talk about

How come loneliness is something we don't talk about
Broken promises, hardly ever spoke aloud
I can't do this anymore
Is my heart worth fighting for?
How come loneliness is something we don't talk about
Broken promises, hardly ever spoke aloud
I can't do this anymore
Is my heart worth fighting for?
Track Name: Wilderness
I would lie awake in bed
Pull the sheets over my head
It's alright
I'd cover up my ears and close my eyes

I hope you find your way out of this mess
And you surrender your pride
Have no fear in your wilderness
Through the darkness to the other side

I can't handle all my stress
To you, this I must confess
It's alright
Never know what I'll come home to find
Maybe another memory to leave behind

I hope you find your way out of this mess
And you surrender your pride
Have no fear in your wilderness
Through the darkness to the other side
It’s alright

I am much too tired to cry
Or sit around and watch you die
And it’s alright
Break of dawn brings morning light
Do you even remember the night?

I hope you find your way out of this mess
And you surrender your pride
Have no fear in your wilderness
Through the darkness to the other side
It’s alright
Track Name: Shiver
I thought I was tough enough
So I took my turn
In the warmth of the sunshine
I got burned

Baby do you want me back
Cause I be coming home so fast
You won't even know that I ever left

You told me no water could
Wash you clean of your sins
You said you were faithless
So then why'd you jump in

Baby do you want me back
Cause I be coming home so fast
You won't even know that I ever left

Shoulda seen those buzzards flying
Maybe then I'd know our love was dying
Loving you was like the river
I couldn't help but shiver

So baby do you want me back
Cause I be coming home so fast
You won't even know that I ever left

Shoulda seen those buzzards flying
Maybe then I'd know our love was dying
Loving you was like the river
I couldn't help but shiver

Both you and the weather babe
I know I can't change
But even the weather will warn me with thunder
Before it rains

Baby do you want me back
Cause I be coming home so fast
You won't even know that I ever left

Shoulda seen those buzzards flying
Maybe then I'd know our love was dying
Loving you was like the river
I couldn't help but shiver
Track Name: Secret
I always thought
I would ride off in the sunset
Too afraid to leave
And even more the chance of my regret

I stayed too long
Shoulda left my motor running
Had to break down
To break out of the shell I was becoming

And all, all the walls inside me fell down
I don't want my bones to be buried in this town

I tried to scream in a dream
But I was speechless
I woke up in a cold sweat
Dreamt that somebody told my secret

I looked inside
And I saw that I was empty
I vowed then to cash in
Any chips that stacked against me

And all, all the walls inside me fell down
I don't want my bones to be buried in this town

And all, all the walls inside me fell down
I don't want my bones to be buried in this town
