Track Name: Never Have to Guess
This week has been something else / You’re not acting yourself / I don’t know what to say / Keep saying I’m the cause of all of this / The truth is we don’t know who is really to blame / Could it be… you’re sad to be at school / And I’m happier than I can say I’ve been in quite a while? / It’s hard to empathize / Sometimes I find that I cannot relate to what you have to say / Times like these when I have doubts / Like to remind myself out loud of all that’s passed between us / Hope your reminder is the same and that you’re happier today / When you call… I hope I’m here so we can talk this out, and you can get some rest / I’d like to think we know each other well enough to never have to guess
Track Name: Walk Away
Can’t live this life without you, don’t leave me on my own / You’ll have your doubts about me, and spend your time alone / He’s making a fool of you, why can’t you understand? / He just can’t stand the thought of you with another man / You’ve got something I want, I can’t just walk away / You’ve got something I need, and what else can I say? / I’ve told you how I feel, that’s all that I can do / I’ve told you what I want; the rest is up to you / I’ve spent the whole time thinking about what could have been / You’re scared to take the chance, so I just remain your friend / You’ve got something I want, I can’t just walk away / You’ve got something I need, and what else can I say? / I’ve told you how I feel, that’s all that I can do / I’ve told you what I want; the rest is up to you / You’ve got something I want, I can’t just walk away / You’ve got something I need, and what else can I say? / I’ve told you how I feel, that’s all that I can do / I’ve told you what I want; the rest is up to you
Track Name: How to Live
It kills me when you get in touch with me again, so later on you can disappear / Don’t play around ’cause I’ve got someone else I’ve found / I’ve got a life of my own / I’ve got someone who’s shown me / How to live and how to give / I’ve learned these lessons without you / It’s easier to forget you when I’m with her / She makes me feel like I used to feel / She takes the time to find out just what’s on my mind / So now I’m letting you know, I’ve found someone who’s shown me / How to live and how to give I’ve learned these lessons without you / You don’t care, you’re never there, you haven’t been for quite some time now / How to live and how to give / I’ve learned these lessons without you / You have all you want, so you disappear / Have all you want, and you’ve made it clear / Now all I want is to show you / You have nothing / You have all you want, so you disappear / Have all you want, and you’ve made it clear / Now all I want is to show you / You have nothing / You have nothing…
Track Name: Everywhere
I want you everywhere that I go / I would leave everyone that I know / To find a place where we could just grow / I love it everything that you do / There is something I’d like to show you / It’s a great place that we could go to / In my mind… / I’ve figured out / In my mind… / There’s life there’s love and then there is trust / You could have all of them if you just / Stop trying to live your life without us / Just trust in you and I’ll trust in me / Just wait and soon enough you will see / That you are where you were meant to be / In my mind… 
I’ve figured out / In my mind… / There is no doubt / I want you everywhere that I go / I would leave everyone that I know / To find a place where we could just grow
Track Name: When You're Away
I’d like to know if you believe / That there is anything wrong with simply taking a reprieve / Some ask for more, some for less / Does anything I’m saying even kind of make sense? / And you said what a shame / It’s not so easy to change / Look to me, I don’t know what to say / And it’s harder when you’re away / Remember when you found out I don’t like to yell I just get kind of quiet? / Never been easy for me to explain to you what has been happening / And you said what a shame / It’s not so easy to change / Look to me I don’t know what to say / And it’s harder when you’re away / It’s harder when you’re away / It’s harder when you’re away
Track Name: Still Alright
You give nothing, but I’m still alright / Things are better when you’re out of sight / I wish we had just one more night / I never thought it’d be this way / There’s nothing left to do or say / So now I’m telling you today / Do you think that I can be a friend? / This is not the way that this should end / But one of us has got to bend / I will be alright / Are you still alright? / Will we be alright? / Alright…
Track Name: Daydreams
Half awake, daydreams that I have / Startled, up, the feeling just before a nap / You were there, I can’t remember, now it’s gone / I’d like to keep my eyes shut a little longer just to see you in them / Come back home from Seattle, and we’ll do everything we had planned / Don’t you know that nothing about you is insignificant? / The smell of rain on the rooftops in our town just makes me miss you more / Just like the way when our summer ends you’ll go back to the east coast shore.
Track Name: Over It
I’m thinking of you, making it through, doing the things that I must do / Taking the time to stop and think of where I’m going to / I’m falling in line, doing just fine, till I see you my day will shine / Hard to believe I tried to see you, tried to call you mine / I’m over it now, I just needed some time / Keep holding it in / You’ll never win / So many things never begin / Pretty content is all you are and all you’ve ever been / I’m over it now, have fun with other men / I’m thinking of you, making it through, doing the things that I must do / Taking the time to stop and think of where I’m going to / I’m falling in line, doing just fine / Till I see you my day will shine / Hard to believe I tried to see you / Tried to call you mine / I’m over it now, I just needed some time
Track Name: Days
Days are getting cooler, fall is in the air / Changing of the weather, another summer gone again / Time moves slower when you’re bored / And at the same time you don’t know where days have gone… / Feeling like forever, staring at the sky / It doesn’t seem to matter, what I choose and why / Somewhere between work and school / You find the time where you don’t know what you will do / Time moves slower when you’re bored / And at the same time you don’t know where days have gone…
Track Name: Things I Should Say
I still love you, do you love me too? / I think about all the things I should say / If I’m not careful, I’ll scare you away / It’s a game that we play / Can’t wait till the day when I can tell you, and that’s when you’ll say / I love you / I still love you, do you love me too?
Track Name: Goodbye Song
Here’s my goodbye song / Last one about you / So take this song, and run where you want to / Here’s my goodbye song / Last one about you / Take care, and good luck in everything you do / But I’m afraid I’m through / Through with love
Track Name: Still the Same
I try to stay far away from the things that just cause me pain / I should have guessed that you would not do the same / You change your name, but you’re still the same / Think they’re all to blame for how you can’t get ahead / With the things they put you through / I don’t know how you find the time to keep playing with all of their minds
Track Name: Stay
I wish that you could just stay longer / Maybe some night it will come true / When I’m with you, I feel much stronger / I feel so good when I’m with you / And I think that you like me too / I wish that you could just stay over / Maybe some night it will come true / I wish that we could just get closer / I feel so good when I’m with you / And I think that you like me too / And I think that you like me too
