Track Name: Wondering Why
Your part died out, but I stuck around.
Took a chance and asked, "Can I kiss you?"
Hill start, went the wrong way, cars stuck, called AAA
and we stayed awake, laying around until a quarter of four.

I've been wondering why,
I've been wondering how come
I couldn't figure you out
I couldn't figure you out now

It was a hazy night, one that goes too fast
Until you left without a word,
I went looking all over town
Went to your house, third time around you were finally home
Wouldn't tell me why you'd gone
You just looked back blankly at me

And know you're deep inside yourself
Hiding before to get away
Always asking what they want, never getting what you need before
Now we're tethered
Catching our breath now, only too slow
Running alone on this field in our bare feet
Climbed the roof and we broke in
Is this mic on? Watch that scoreboard glow
Making a scene so now we better run

I can tell that you've got a charm that could work on me
I can tell that you've got a charm that could work on me
When you smile disapprovingly at me leaving this dream team

I was telling you not to go home
I was telling you, the night before the lights when out in this house
Love isn't easily fooled
Track Name: Cheese Rock (You're so..damn)
I catch a glimpse of you, you know that you could have the room.
You catch me in a stare. I don't avoid your eyes, just smile instead.
Now the move is mine, I strike a pose that's sure to catch your eye.
Now that my attention is yours, your interest is sure to change it's course.

I know you're gone the minute I'm interested
In seeing through what you have solicited
But don't think that it bothers me a bit
Don't think it bothers me a bit

So I tried to impress,
Slid down the rail next to the stairs.
I had never looked so good,
seamlessly landed into a slide that chilled the room.

I know you're gone the minute I'm interested
An ego boost is simply attributed
But don't think that it bothers me a bit
Don't think it bothers me a bit

Right now I'm looking cause I know you want me to,
Saying step back but I know you feel it too.
You're feeling this right now, you're feeling right now, you're feeling this right now.
Crash course on how I will be to you: Charmed words, sweet touch, designed just for you.
You look so damn (woo!) You look so damn (woo!)
Leaving now you got your ego, don't think it bothers me so.
Can't stop looking at you girl, can't stop looking at you girl
Track Name: Night at the End of Your Bed
Who would have thought we'd change love?
You got me, you got me, raking up dead leaves.
I had my eyes set, on a distant view.
Chasing the hours through.
Who would have thought the pain love,
Could shape a cold, bitter mold of a man?

I'm lying in your bed, you think everything is right.
Tears leave my eyes, my stomach clenched like
Fists ready for a fight.

Tell me who you are.
Tell me what you need.
There's a liar in our bed,
She's lying next to me.

I reconsider the notion,
Of a world with little consequence.
The echos from my screams,
Envelop me
And I was not allowed to forget.
I found my tongue tied, to a twisted string around your finger and you're Whispering...

Tell me who you are.
Tell me what you need.
There's a liar in our bed,
She's lying next to me.
Track Name: Alexithymia
Rise this amber glow,
Brightened eyes, I'm invincible.
You live inside your heart, it's an awfully big place to live.

Words all too dull, to give meaning to this vehemence.
A sense of only life, insurmountable to reason why.
Track Name: Cyclothymia
Free from this iron clad, the mounted walls, the bitter taste.
Upon this floor where I lay, the only this that separates
A painted picture from my actuality.
And I forget this place, a bitter curl around your waist, my arm stretched.
And now I've left alone, when you needed me the most.
My thoughts and fears conspire as one when I wash away this reddened rung. A stain left on my desk, a wine glass represents, well, not a thing.

I've got this aching in my back.
Free from the chains of my past
I am breaking out of this cage, I am free.
I am everything that you could hope to be.

Breath a shallow breath, from timid lungs.
I can guess which way the cycle swung,
I wish I had left when the patterns reemerged and
Recollect their winners prize, of liars debts and seeking eyes
Behind aged door cracks, reminds me,oh I forget,
No i forced myself, but I'll face it soon enough.

I've got this aching in my back.
Free from the chains of my past
I am breaking out of this cage, I am free.
From this hold over me, and hollow dead bodies.
But I've got it now, and I'm not letting go.
I've found my peace and a chance to be whole.
So light the fire, let it burn, let it be forgotten,
Let it be apart of something you will never be.

And every time I held your face in my hands
I knew what you could be.
You had only to remember it was you who gave me peace.
