give it up for those who have the guts to hurt who they love when they really have to those who have the guts to love themselves above all the rest when they really must there isn’t much i wouldn’t do for you but don’t ask me to stick around forever there isn’t much i wouldn’t do for you so don’t ask me to stick around forever large amounts of fun and songs but you still go hungry you can still go hungry

to disappear 02:23
intentions are hanging in the air so are the feelings but words can’t seem to find their way out of your mouth we sit in silence and this is leading us nowhere there’s no way to go from here and although i’m trying hard you still want to disappear it’s always seemed like a waste of time to talk and now we seem to have forgotten how it’s done as we stare at everything but each other so very quietly and this is leading us nowhere there’s no way to go from here and although i’m trying hard you still want to disappear

i won't be your ashtray i won't be your mom i don't want to i'm not going to i don't want to i don't want to i'm not going to choke to choke i won't forget your birthday i won't drink your beer i won't smoke inside i won't throw away your pillow i don't want to i'm not going to i don't want to i'm not going to go to go to go to go

on lust 03:09
you come over with your winning smile you speak in words i know i don’t even try to fight it your hands look good when you’re walking your hands look good when you’re dancing your hands are good for touching i know what they say about you and i know a thing or two about lust we’re both so far away from home it’s all but echoes in my head the beat, the lights, the people there i don’t even try to focus i let go because i can i let go because i want to i let go because it’s you i know what they say about you and i know a thing or two about lust we’re both so far away from home
5.
without it 04:22
we have had some lovely times though we fight the weirdest fights you went out to clear your head said you didn't understand that i might just be looking for some answers that maybe i'm just trying to find some hope why did i never feel like i couldn't live without you i why did i never feel like you're a part of me and it's hard if you have ever been in love to live everyday to go through your life without it when you left i was so sad thinking about what you said maybe you're not coming back and that might not be that bad ’cause maybe i have had enough of this maybe i'm ready for something else i want to feel like i couldn't live without it i want to feel like it's a part of me and it's hard if you have ever been in love to live everyday to go through your life without it
6.
if she can't 03:28
it's a story of misuse she has nothing left to loose she can't love you so she's better off unloved she can't touch you so she's better off untouched she can't have you so it's best that she's alone if she can't have you you seeing you she falls apart seeing you it breaks her heart there's no way she'll ever love like she loved then just no way she'll ever feel like that again she's accepted that she'll never have no one if she can't have you you
7.
my my my my 01:49
my my my my my my what a beautiful day and i’m here my my my what a beautiful day and you’re here
8.
when to stop 03:21
i can’t speak like i always do the words come out all funny and i’m not sure what it is about you but i almost call you honey and i feel like telling you all the things you make me want to do hope i know when to stop i went home alone that night and i do not regret it i’m still not sure what i will do the next time i am close to you will i feel like telling you all the things you make me want to do? will i know when to stop?
9.
don’t want to scare you but it has begun few hours left before the morning sun it’s about to come there’s nothing wrong with wanting to go on no one’s going to blame you if you choose to run it’s about to come
10.
dream of you 01:51
i can’t only be in love with you during my lonely hours i can’t go without thinking of you for days on end and then tremble when i talk to you wonder what you think of me be sure that i’m in lust with you and dream of you dream of you
11.
so the dance 03:43
The rain began to fall And so the dance began I feel it in my bones This isn’t meant to last I feel it in my blood This isn’t going to end I feel it in my bones This will be over soon I feel it in my bones This isn’t going to end
