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, 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: 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: Impossible Catch
There's nothing like chasing after the impossible catch
the thrill of the run, the hope of a prize glimmers in my eyes
But of course I never, never ever want to win
All the fun ends when the goal is achieved, but I'm never appeased

Evasive maneuvers
love's not the only loser
dodge and sidestep to the right
excuse me pardon me please sir
Duck, weave, drop, roll, and repeat
won't be swept right off my feet
with evasive maneuvers
love's not the only loser

Why even bother? I'm an impossible catch
you can shine your lure and throw out your line and bide your time
But I won't be caught, no I won't be caught
I'll tug at your string and pull at your line, but never satisfy

Evasive maneuvers
love's not the only loser
dodge and sidestep to the right
excuse me pardon me please sir
Duck, weave, drop, roll, and repeat
won't be swept right off my feet
with evasive maneuvers
love's not the only loser

The hopeless chase a safer run, my heart a prize that can't be won
The hopeless chase a safer run, my heart a prize that can't be won
The hopeless chase a safer run, my heart a prize that can't be won
The hopeless chase a safer run, my heart a prize that can't be won

Evasive maneuvers
love's not the only loser
dodge and sidestep to the right
excuse me pardon me please sir
Duck, weave, drop, roll, and repeat
won't be swept right off my feet
with evasive maneuvers
love's not the only loser
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
Track Name: You Fly
You are sleeping seven time zones away
I am wide awake
Daydreaming seven years down the road
when we share a home

You fly with my heart, you fly with my heart

I hope you are dreaming of me
relief from reality
only five days 'til time's on our side
your hand in mine

You fly with my heart, you fly with my heart

I know you're airborne traveling the world 'round
but when you land I'll be the softest ground
cuz when I fell for you, you caught me good
better than I thought a man ever could

You fly with my heart, you fly with my heart
