Track Name: Throwing Stones
So you came back and I froze
My eyes were so wide while we spoke
You were near and far to see the world and I was stuck here throwing stones
I was so scared of what would be by the time you came back to finally see me
Hoping I'll amount to something
Could I do better on my own?

My voice doesn't shake like it used to
I'll say what I mean; I don't need you
I like when you're gone and I'm free to pick and choose
No redo

With both arms around you I breath you in
I just needed to clear my head
Power and love you treat the same
You're not worth the risk to start again

Started fresh with someone new
In the back of my head you grew
Until you said you're done, I had my fun and I'll never think of you

With both arms around you I breath you in
I just needed to clear my head
Power and love you treat the same
You're not worth the risk to start again
Track Name: Second Guess
Dropped what you once called yours
New smiles make it so easy
Until the past finds its voice and makes it known that it's not leaving
And I got this heavy conscience, and I know just how to stop it
Stiff drinks and my own profit
It felt so good at first but it doesn't last

And she said "I don't want you to feel this way"
Yeah I guess that the future it more like yesterday
Never seemed to possess
Weighing down on my chest
So I spin and pretend like I'm changing

I'll pause and look for a way out
It's too late to take back/rewrite now

And she said "I don't want you to feel this way"
Yeah I guess that the future it more like yesterday
Never seemed to possess
Weighing down on my chest
So I spin and pretend like I'm changing

The water sits so clear 'til you jump in
Then you see all the mud as your boots sink
The man underneath says 'we all sin, just learn from this now while you still can'
Track Name: Convenient Friend
Was I just a crutch for you to lean?
A placeholder while you found stable ground beneath your feet?
Was I just a convenient friend?
Do I have you figured out now?
Was I a fool to think that maybe you needed me again ?

People whisper in my ear saying things that I don't need to hear
Now I'm caught up in a feeling so familiar, so familiar
(2x)

When I grow old will you still look at me?
'cause I'm blinded now and I know you're right
And I keep saying sorry 'cause you stuck around
And then I won't leave and I'll waste your life

People whisper in my ear saying things that I don't need to hear
Now I'm caught up in a feeling so familiar, so familiar
(2x)
Track Name: Ceiling
I knew all along
Knew right where this would end up
First inside your bed
Staring at you as you lay there
Ignoring the sunrise
My neck so red from your love-bites
It's innocent and fun
But I can't trust what you're saying

I know it's over
You made it so clear in your silence
I know it's over
I just hope you learn your lesson

Lock eyes with the ceiling
It's much more appealing than you right now
You can't keep your story straight
You say wait it out but why delay?

I know it's over
You made it so clear in your silence
I know it's over
I just hope you learn your lesson

Here at home now I call a friend
To weigh my options and clear my head
I think of how I left you seated at your desk
(I hope we can do this again, were the last words that I said)
Half finished makeup, tears on your dress
(I hope we can do this again were my last words)
I write each thought out it adds up the same
Still I tear out these pages and start again

I know it's over
You made it so clear in your silence
I know it's over
I just hope you learn your lesson

I just hope you learn your lesson (4x)
You know what I needed to see, and that I can't let this be
You still haven't called and I'm sorry to say, that it's over
Track Name: Fix Everything
You said you can't commit to this
I'm never there and you're feeling it, I wish that you'd stop crying
You said 'please come here, I'm so alone'
When you know I'm out you have to call
You beg for sex when I'm gone too long
And you pray that it will fix what's wrong

Dry your eyes, my dear
Stop expecting exactly what you wanna hear
I can't fix everything that's wrong

If not seeing me is your biggest problem, I think that you'll survive
I'll play the saddest song in the world as you lay alone for six more nights

Dry your eyes, my dear
Stop expecting exactly what you wanna hear
I can't fix everything that's wrong
Track Name: So Long
So long to the things we left forgotten, when you
walked out and I got stuck with all the baggage somehow
Our talks only help me while I'm spinning
Whatever will be will be

I hoped that you would meet me in December, so we
could talk and you might love me one more hour, I wrote
ya down another lovely letter
Hope you weep the whole drive home

I watch the time pass by, I still pull your hairs from my clothes
The memories're in the rear view and they're dying 'cause it's cold

Four months until we ask ourselves this question, will we
Move on or start mending broken fences, I think
That we, we both learned our lesson
Not to late to make new plans

I watch the time pass by, I still pull your hairs from my clothes
The memories're in the rear view and they're dying 'cause it's cold

So long to the things we left forgotten, when you
walked out and I got stuck with all the baggage somehow
Our talks only help me while I'm spinning
Whatever will be will be
Track Name: Almonds
I'm always looking for things to distract me
I can't keep this act up, I'm looking for something
Something to relax me 'cause I can't sleep
You want me, but as someone I can't be

Even now that months have passed
You would think that I'm finally back to normal
But I can't seem to find my feet
And this change is still hard for me
To come to terms with the fact that you moved on again
I'd like to feel anything for anyone again

'Out of sight and out of mind' is what you said
But you still got a permanent place inside my head
And now you see me as a lesson learned
If that's all that it was then what the hell was the point of it?

I'm always looking for things to distract me
I can't keep this act up, I'm looking for something
Something to relax me 'cause I can't sleep
You want me, but as someone I can't be

And I still make believe that you get me
Guess it's probably 'cause I'm still spinnin'
Always had a way of making me dizzy
Play it over and over in my head
(I keep wishing things were different)
Still come over tonight if you let me
Guess it's probably 'cause I'm still spinnin'
(I keep wishing)

I'm always looking for things to distract me
I can't keep this act up, I'm looking for something
Something to relax me 'cause I can't sleep
You want me, but as someone I can't be
Track Name: Cross Out My Name
it wasn't what you said it was watching the words fall out of your mouth to the floor
we both knew where this was going
so you kissed me and make your way to the door

And that's where I'll stay
'til I can think this through
and in the morning I'll dry out

You were right, this is forced, unexciting
I couldn't take control when I normally do
I still don't know my problem
Was I not ready or was I just not into you?

So that's where I'll stay
Alone to think this through
Until I finally dry out

Don't get me wrong, I'm not losing sleep
But you still cross my mind, I still see your face
in every bar or crowded place
Let's go back to being strangers and you cross out my name
(cross out my name)

Is this all that you wanted?
When I showed up tonight was your heart still jumpin'?
I'm too far gone to speak, but I hear just fine
I agree this is alright

Don't get me wrong, I'm not losing sleep
But you still cross my mind, I still see your face
in every bar or crowded place
Let's go back to being strangers and you cross out my name
(cross out my name)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not losing sleep
But you still cross my mind, I still see your face
in every bar or crowded place
Let's go back to being strangers and you cross out my name
(cross out my name)
