Track Name: just.feel.love
Don't be another one, that got away, that got afraid...
Don't be the lazy one, taking anyone, that's been a stray...
Don't be the angry one, throwing tantrums, when things don't go your way...
Don't sit in silence, waiting for something, sweet to say...

just.feel.love

Don't think the ugly things, that could your brain, everyday...
Don't reach across this quiet table, stay in your place...
Don't rush the obvious, crowding the couch, oh just give her space...
But don't think it's pointless, remembering past mistakes...

just.feel.love
Track Name: prove.you.wrong
You had to know, what you wanted with the wrong person
I guess it's hard to know...
I swear I feel your pain, it isn't fair
how these men will run their hands right through your hair
And call you sweet things, wanting only
the secret loving between your legs
But don't be afraid, oh, there are others
who know how to love before they take...

and I am here, to prove.you.wrong

On the night we met, you were desperate
I was lonely, God, we were drunk...
So we went alone, stumblin' laughin'
"Just go to the end, and then take a right"
It sounded awful, but we know what happened....
Mostly talkin', and trying to sleep
I didn't take it for granted, your attention
Though you swear you were ready to give up trust

Oh, but I am here, to prove.you.wrong
Track Name: Protected
Wait, this isn't perfect, but it's a start...
I always run, head first, fall apart...
Collisions feel like battlefields I never win...
But I can still feel your cold hands...

Oh, how will I know when the time is right?
And, is this all just a hopeless fight?
Well, your eyes burn through my head
But your heart is so well protected

Like a dog that hasn't been outside....
My joy takes over my pride...
My breath is still chalked by cigarettes...
Don't take away a final kiss...

Oh, if that's what this is well then...

How should I know when the time is right?
And is this all just a hopeless fight?
Well, your eyes burn through my head
But your heart is so well protected
Track Name: The Streets of Benson
Three months, drunk and alone...
Three months, I've had you to hold...
and the old apartment is vacant and burned down...
But your backyard offers comfort now...

Oh, we settled the fight...
and time, we'll take...
I will write, and you will paint...

The streets of Benson are getting quiet now...
and the boys in the bar respect what we have found...
Oh, and how can you trust me more than I can myself?
It makes it easy to love you and sing this warm sound...

Oh, we settled the fight...
and time, we'll take...
I will write, and you will paint...

You're so cool, I don't know what to do...
Can I tie you to a tree so you can't ever leave?
Track Name: She Said It
And I told her about my medications...
and I told her about the drugs of my past...
And I told her about distant relations....
And I told her how my love never lasts....

But we went out anyway...
And I wore my best shirt...
And even though I had kissed her already...
I kept my distance to her...

But I want the world to know...
She said it, she said it, she did...
She finally said it...

And I told her about all my old songs...
And I told her about my traveling soul...
And I told her about everything I shouldn't have....
But I told her about the depth of my love...

And we both forgave the mistakes that we've made...
As I laid on my bed, asked quite sincerely...
I put that blue necklace on, right around her neck...
and I leaned in close...

And I said it, oh, I can't believe I said it...
And last night, she finally said it...
And never thought that she was gonna say it...
And I told myself after the last time, I'd never say it again....

But I said it...
and last night...
She finally said it...
Track Name: How Can I Ever Thank You?
I know I've been imperfect...
These days, I've changed, still conflicted...
Show me a sign, tell me it's fine, to disappoint you...
I'll leave fear and start to amaze you...

It takes time to fix it...
Open heart, keep fillin' it...
With new ways to love you...
Though I'm strugglin'...
Last March left me blinded...
Somehow, you held on...
Oh, how can I ever thank you?

I've paid my debts, still scratchin'...
Pennies, left for me, let's go get wasted...
Flippin' through your old magazines...
The needle drops, side B, it's the new Dopamines...

It takes time to fix it...
Open heart, keep fillin' it...
With new ways to love you...
Though I'm strugglin'...
Last March left me blinded...
Somehow, you held on...
Oh, how can I ever thank you?
Track Name: a Rose, a Dream and a Song
There's a rose in my head, and in my heart...
And I'm taking my time, removing all the thorns...
It's stem is green, and bleeding down the streets...
and it's petals are blue, for everything I feel for you...

And we seem to relate to all the things that held us back...
and though we seem to ignore all the things that we have lacked...

There's a song in my throat, beggin' to be sang...
and it's melody is sorry for everything...
Though the fault wasn't mine, I feel it, just the same...
Empathy has led me back to trying...

And though we seem to relate to all the things that held us back...
and though we seem to ignore all the things that we have lacked...

When we're together, everything fades so we can start over...

There's a dream in my soul, and it won't go...
Away without a bullet, it's my hope to hold...
That I'll live my life fully, without givin' in, it's only...
A question of who wants to come along...
Track Name: A Minor Key
Start up the grill, moving the needle...
Watch as you garden, nothin' illegal...
This is world peace right at our feet...

Keepin' in mind, the rules I must keep...
Doesn't seem to matter to us, I think....
You waited to long to find me...
I'm better now, but it was a hard path to beat...

How did this happen? I forget...
I took a chance, I don't regret...
Everything happens for a reason, I guess...

Seein' how this worked out, I'll respect...
You, if you leave, though I'd be a wreck...
Just please don't turn off, the record yet...
The best part is coming next...

I'm gonna love you until you let go...
I wanna help you go where you wanna go...
The time we spend will be memories...
When we finally get where we've wanted to be...
Don't be afraid of the things you don't know...
Don't shed a tear, I will never let it go...
When you are hungry, scared or angry...
I'll be the one who sees you through the day...
This is a promise like never before...
Fuck what's been done, I just love where we are...
Despite what some others may think that we'lll be...
This dream, this life, our love.... will always sing...

In a minor key
Track Name: Since I'm With You
It was fine when I first came over....
Went to dinner, and then shortly there after...
I held your hand, despite reservations...
and we began one of a thousand conversations...

And since I'm with you, I'm not insecure as much...
Since I'm with you, I'm not in such a rush...
Since I'm with you, I finally feel I'm good enough...
Since I'm with you, my heart's feeling the crush of your love...

It wasn't long before I loved you...
It wasn't hard to let my love surround you...
And it was strange how I came to know you....
But it was easy to open myself up to you...

And since I'm with you, I'm not insecure as much...
Since I'm with you, I'm not in such a rush...
Since I'm with you, I finally feel I'm good enough...
Since I'm with you, my heart's feeling the crush of your love...

Of your love....

And since I'm with you, I'm not insecure as much...
Since I'm with you, I'm not in such a rush...
Since I'm with you, I finally feel I'm good enough...
Since I'm with you, my heart's feeling the crush of your love...
Track Name: Amanda Rose
Every time I'm with you, I fall a little harder....
The way you rest, your weary head, on my shoulder....
I feel like I might turn out to be a little smarter...
Like all my faults can stay behind, and I can be stronger...

Your eyes, they slay me...
Your smile entrances me...
Your body is a mystery I can't wait to solve...

When we met, I was scared, I wouldn't be worth the bother...
Of dinner dates, movies and drinks, or even getting closer...
I see it now, the way you grab my waist and pull me nearer...
It's your smile, it's your grace, sometimes I can't recover...

Your eyes, they slay me...
Your smile entrances me...
Your body is a mystery I can't wait to solve...

Do you know how it feels to be so connected?
In so many ways, every day, coincidences matter...
They show us sign, like this may not be what we expected....
But I won't try to understand, just happy that we're together....
