Track Name: Intro/Doing This
talkin to you like you want me to
and doin everything for you to approve
sometimes I think I have to justify myself
I compromise and tell these lies for you
and it seems to work on you, now I've lost myself in you
and I'm wonderin' why I'm feelin' all alone again

and I can't keep track of all these starlights and sunsets
the days keep turnin' me around
the company I keep is always passionate and brief
baby I just can't keep doin' this

hangin' around like you give a damn
I wanna walk away but I don't think I can
sometimes I think I want to be abused
and baby I think I can take it from you
and I give so much to you, and I love ya so but you
ya just turn your back and I'm standin' all alone again

and I can't keep track of all these starlights and sunsets
the days keep turnin' me around
the company I keep is always passionate and brief
baby I just can't keep doin' this

lyin' on the sheets your proposition's kinda weak
but you keep whispering in my ear
and when will I come to understand
the love I desire is not only found in your hand

and I can't keep track of all these starlights and sunsets
the days keep turnin' me around
the company I keep is always passionate and brief
baby I just can't keep doin' this
Track Name: Stay
what do you want from me? there's something you grab in me
when your hand brings beauty with its warm gentle weight
feasting on your kiss like I haven't eaten in days
I wonder if you'll stay, I wonder if you'll stay

I look for reasons to make you leave and to sabotage the lovin' part of me
but there's nothing I can do when you touch me so tenderly

lyin' here I find my solace with you, I wish I'd found it on my own
so hard to grab ahold a loving hand, so stubborn set in my ways
you linger on beyond a passing phase yet I doubt your true intentions
I wonder if you'll stay, I wonder if you'll stay

I look for reasons to make you leave and to sabotage the lovin' part of me
but there's nothing I can do when you touch me so tenderly

a stranger read me once like I was a book, told me I didn't trust men
I can never seem to turn the page, I live the same old story again and again
again and again, again and again

when I say I have to leave, it really means hold me tight
cuz baby I could stay, I could stay all night
but testing you I will push you away, just to see what you will do
I wonder if you'll stay, I wonder if you'll stay
Track Name: Far Away
it's amazing what just a few words can do to my soul, you will never know
the endless rippling from the drop that caused my cup to overflow
and it's so hard to admit to myself what you do to me
but I'm spilling there's no stopping this change in me

far away, I never thought that you could still reach me here
far away, you're still with me every single day

it's unending the things you want to touch but you cannot hold
you will never know the gentle aching brought by the mention of your name
and it's so hard to admit to myself what you do to me
and I'm singing just to feel your name pass through my lips

far away I never thought that you could still reach me here
far away you're still with me every single day

so tell me is it really greener where you are?
and if I stood there would I really feel the same?

far away I never thought that you could still reach me here
far away you're still with me every single day
Track Name: Waiting Patiently
this is a song of labor
let's hurry this along
oh sweetest, sweetest baby,
you're doing nothing wrong but

the gravity of this situation
is inevitable
no need to hide
you're surely lovable

no need to rush, just take your time, don't shake a leg oh baby
it's fine
waiting waiting patiently patiently for you
so don't you worry don't you hurry baby, really it's
just fine
waiting waiting patiently patiently for you

the world outside is lovely
i want you to know
so many arms to hold you
1, 2, 3, go!

what's the holdup, darlin'?
waiting on you to show your face
no need to hide
you're gonna love this place

no need to rush, just take your time, don't shake a leg oh baby
it's fine
waiting waiting patiently patiently for you
so don't you worry don't you hurry baby, really it's
just fine
waiting waiting patiently patiently for you

la ti da ti da ti, waiting on you
la ti da ti da ti, waiting on you
what's the holdup, darlin'?
waiting on you to show your face
la ti da ti da ti, waiting on you

no need to rush, just take your time, don't shake a leg oh baby
it's fine
waiting waiting patiently patiently for you
so don't you worry don't you hurry baby, really it's
just fine
waiting waiting patiently patiently for you
Track Name: More Than I
I know you won't be tied down to me
so let me miss you, let me kiss you goodbye

but no one will love you more than I did
no one will know you more than I do
no one will help you more than I tried to

I can no longer keep your misery company,
though it loves me
so sit and think of me, have a drink or two, or seven,
for me or because of me

cuz no one will love you more than I did
no one will know you more than I do
no one will help you more than I tried to

well, I can't change you, rearrange you
it should come as no surprise
but I had to try just one more time
this is the last reprise

but no one will love you more than I did
no one will know you more than I do
no one will help you more than I tried to

so let me miss you, let me kiss you goodbye
Track Name: One Day
you will be so much better tomorrow
so much better tomorrow better come
forget the person you are right now
you are right now a lazy bum
but one day, one day, maybe you won't be

kickin' your feet up, messin' the place up and generally being a pain
...or maybe not

if you could just get moving, what would you do?
what would you do if it all just came to you?
you'd be the ideal sort of type
the sort of type that would only do, do, do
one day, one day, maybe you won't be

kickin' your feet up, messin' the place up and generally being a pain,
maybe you won't be behind, your affairs all in line, with no one and nothing to blame
...or maybe not

if you could just be left alone
left alone you'd do scores of fancy things:
pay bills, plan dates, peel grapes, tempt fate
go on a shopping spree
mope less, meet kings, mail stuff, make things
anything that you dream
but one day, one day, maybe you won't be

kickin' your feet up, messin' the place up and generally being a pain,
maybe you won't be behind, your affairs all in line, with no one and nothing to blame
maybe you'll never say should have, you'll never say could have, and never hang your head in shame
...or maybe not
Track Name: Clear to us Now
sitting next to me, you felt you had nothing to offer
honestly, you were always enough
and you never felt insecure
but you never felt right with anybody else

where is the common ground between us, we'd always ask ourselves.
we never let anyone get close to us,
and thought so much but would never tell.
where is the common ground between us? oh it's so clear to us now.

sitting next to you, i knew that you wanted to say more
so I babbled on, hoping to fill the silence
and I always felt confident
but I always felt unsure of everybody else

where is the common ground between us, we'd always ask ourselves.
we never let anyone get close to us,
and thought so much but would never tell.
where is the common ground between us? oh it's so clear to us now.

i never had the courage to say what i wanted
you wouldn't break what we had
and now the distance only makes us long for what
we will never have

where is the common ground between us, we'd always ask ourselves.
we never let anyone get close to us,
and thought so much but would never tell.
where is the common ground between us? oh it's so clear to us now.
Track Name: My Own Discretion
Can you respect and understand that I am just a work in progress?
Can you tolerate the fact that I often contradict myself?
Can you find your fleeting patience when I've seemed to misplace mine?
Can you still love me when I don't even like myself?

Cuz I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need your affection
I tally up the score when I label every imperfection
looking for a red or green I find only flashing yellow
stop and go at my own discretion

Can you stand to be corrected, can you understand my backwards thoughts?
Can you please repeat yourself again? I didn't hear the first three times
Can you tolerate my awful jokes and smile when I start laughing?
Can you fill in the blanks of my stare, can you read my mind?

Cuz I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need your affection
I tally up the score when I label every imperfection
looking for a red or green I find only flashing yellow
stop and go at my own discretion

Won't someone tell me what to do?
Cuz I don't want to gamble, but I don't want to risk losing you
Won't something give me a sign?
Just to let me know everything will be just fine?
It will be just fine

Cuz I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need your affection
I tally up the score when I label every imperfection
looking for a red or green I find only flashing yellow
stop and go at my own discretion
Track Name: Hungry Siren
I'm a hungry siren
in an empty sea
singing so sweetly
but no one comes to me

how much longer shall I call?
how much longer shall I wait?
my voice is my hunger
my voice is my bait

I am a hungry siren
in an empty sea
singing so sweetly
but no one comes to me

how much longer shall I call?
how much longer shall I wait?
my voice is my hunger
my voice is my bait

I'm singing for my supper
I'm singing for my supper...
Track Name: One More Heart to Break
fascination blooms in the heart of you
the bliss in ignorance ruined when you learn the truth

you've been warned, my heart not even close to warm
you would be a mistake, one more heart to break

your arms are chains, your hands are shackles
back off, I'm not doing this again
don't say my name, it fills your mouth up
get out of my face I'm losing my head
trust me, you're better off walking away now
cuz I will rip your heart out, no doubt, one more heart to break

i would lay you down to fill this emptiness
oh, the aching would only continue, so would this restlessness

you would be warm, my heart has been warned
you would be a mistake, one more heart to break

your arms are chains, your hands are shackles
back off, I'm not doing this again
don't say my name, it fills your mouth up
get out of my face I'm losing my head
trust me, you're better off walking away now
cuz I will rip your heart out, no doubt, one more heart to break

you would be warm, my heart has been warned
you would be a mistake, one more heart to break

your arms are chains, your hands are shackles
back off, I'm not doing this again
don't say my name, it fills your mouth up
get out of my face I'm losing my head
trust me, you're better off walking away now
cuz I will rip your heart out, no doubt, one more heart to break
Track Name: Consipracy
could i just narrow it down to a fine line
refine the chaos so it's neat and tidy
words unwind me please...

when i ravel it up, it's so hard to tell
if i've tangled or if i've undone it
lost or won it

push it here, pull it there
fix a bit and i'll break all of the rest of it
tie it up, pin it down
but all the ends are the loosest ones around

it's a planetary conspiracy
they're lining up, ganging up on me
it's a planetary conspiracy
they're lining up, ganging up on me

everything moves along fine, till i count on it
rely on it, and it shifts and moves,
gets me out of my groove

just one time, wouldn't it be nice
if it turned out the way you expected
not broke and defected?

put this here, move that there
make some room watch everything else fall through
wrap it up, close the deal
and watch as it loses its appeal

it's a planetary conspiracy
they're lining up, ganging up on me
it's a planetary conspiracy
they're lining up, ganging up on me

i don't mind some unpredictability
but the chaos theory has proved itself to me

it's a planetary conspiracy
they're lining up, ganging up on me
it's a planetary conspiracy
they're lining up, ganging up on me
Track Name: A Long Monday
I was carried off in the arms of my thoughts
Oh how sweet my dreams can be
How dare I let myself imagine what it would be like with him
and I'm cursing myself now that the phone makes no sound, no sound

no la-dee-da, no dee-da-dee, no ring
no la-dee-da, no dee-da-dee, no ring

Reasoning is out the window, sanity in tow
I'm wanting more of your time, wondering if you want mine
Maybe you're also agonizing like me, overanalyzing
waiting for the ring that will make your heart sing, make your heart sing

like ba-da-bum, ba-ba-da-da-dum, ba-da-da-da-da-da-dum
like ba-da-bum, ba-ba-da-da-dum, ba-da-da-da-da-da-dum

Well my heart goes faster as my mind goes chasing after
saying, "Pace yourself!
Time will tell, it will make it hell for you!
Don't get your hopes up so soon."

I'm hoping for the best, you seem different from the rest
It's so easy to be a fool when it's all so new
Don't prove me wrong, don't wait too long
This game is such a tease, with no relief, no relief

like ah, oh, ooo
ah, oh, ooo
