Track Name: Chasing Waves
Making my way
through the spaces in the crowd
My eyes; they scan the room looking to
identify a familiar smile til they find you

Don't look at me that way
You erase all the words I rehearsed to say
Now I'm tongue-tied, twisted
stumble on a mumble, I'm addicted to you
When all i really want to do is tell you

I could be your girl
chase the waves of the world with you
We'll take a plane to L.A.
I'll make you laugh all the way through
I don't need pretty things;
Tiff & Co diamond rings
Not even Pink Champagne
They don't mean anything
I could be your girl
I don't need much in return
I just want you, I just want you

I never knew it could be this tough
To find the words for love
And now I'm tongue-tied, twisted
stumble on a mumble I'm addicted to you
And all I really want to do is tell you

All of the superstars
With their fancy cars
I don't care what they've got
'Cause that's not who you are
Track Name: Falling In Love
I haven't slept since Saturday
And it's now Tuesday
I just don't know
I think I've lost control from the neck up

Can I ask you a question
Is this a connection?
'Cause, baby, you made me feel I'm spilling out
In all different directions
I know it's crazy to feel this way
But if you try you might just find you kinda like it
'Cause

I'm falling in love with you (yeah baby)
I'm falling in love with you

Every phone call, every message
Every time it might be you
I bite my lip as adrenalin runs through my veins
When I see your name and my heart is racing
Because
Track Name: One More Last Kiss
You say 'she's just a friend'
But I've heard those words before
Are we back there again?
'Cause I'm catching tears once more

You're not ready for me, well I'm not ready for you
What are we waiting for?
There's no decree, stop this analytical review
Of what you think I am, Yeah It's just...

One more last kiss, One last goodbye
how many hearts have to break before we get it right?
One more last kiss, One last goodbye
I'll try forgetting your face like the way you did mine
'Cause you keep breaking my heart

You haven't called in days
Well how long must I wait this time?
You say you need your space
Well that's our cue to stop and rewind

You're not ready for me, well I'm not ready for you
Don't want to wait no more
You've got this image in your head you'd rather believe instead
Than what's in front of you
There's no decree, stop this analytical review
Of what you think I am
It hurts too much, I've had enough
You don't deserve my love

One more last kiss, One last goodbye
how many hearts have to break before we get it right?
One more last kiss, One last goodbye
I'll try forgetting your face like you did mine

'Cause you keep breaking my heart
heart, yeah, yeah yeah.
When will I get it right?
Track Name: Temporary Love
I had it all worked out
Or so I thought, or so I thought.
You had it all worked out
Exactly how you thought, exactly how you thought.

I just want to know

Why do you follow me
When you know that I want to be your necessity?
You're only here
For the Temporary Love you drain out of me.

You'll say all, all you can
So I change all my plans
just to waste some time with you
And I, I'll fall once again
And Rearrange all my plans
just to waste some time with you

This Heart is not strong enough
to keep on giving to you
This Heart is not strong enough
to keep giving to you
But I will if you ask me to.
Track Name: I Don't Love You
He used to treat me so bad;
Kick me out, leave me crying and stranded
10 minutes you'd be there
To pick me up and drive me home
You'd call to make sure I'm okay in the morning
But since he's been gone
It seems you've moved on

every weekend moving on and on and on
like a Pawn; A King no more

I'm not in love with you
Just with the memory of who
You used to be before
But that ain't you anymore
I'm not in love with you
You're just a boy I once knew
Grown up into a man-whore
I don't love you anymore

Remember film marathons?
And phone calls that started at midnight
And went on until the first ray of sunlight
Now when did all of that change?
I'll tell you when, and don't you dare say his name
You shrugged me off
got too cool and moved on

every weekend moving on and on and on
like a Pawn; A King no more
You're my King no more

I don't love you, I don't love you
I don't love you, I don't love you
I don't love you, I don't love you
I don't love you, not you
Track Name: Sweet Revenge
Predictive life outcomes
At the age of 5
He's gonna be a football star
She'll find the cure for time

They look down at the young blonde girl
unaffected by her smile
They shake their heads
'She just won't cut it'

We try so hard to challenge our fate, yeah.
Success will be such sweet revenge, yeah.
We'll fight the odds that tell us
We can't be what we want to be
We try so hard to challenge our fate, yeah.

He's not in love with me
he only wants this body
He tells me: 'Who do you think you are?
There's no way you'll ever make it
Find something stable'

He breaks through my thin-skinned soul
unaffected by my guitar
He shakes his head: 'You just won't cut it, cut it'
Guess what? Those words mean nothing to me

Don't tell me I'm not the one
I'll prove your stupid sorry ass wrong
And when I do, When I do
I'll wave to you from the top
Track Name: A Day Too Long (Bonus Track)
I can't find the right way
to say all I'm feeling
And I can't find the right time
To let you know I don't want to let you go

I can't find the right words
To express all these thoughts in my head
And I can't find the right emotion
To show how much I love you so

I want to hold on forever to you
Don't want to hear that's a day too long for me to
I'll hold on forever to you
Don't want to hear that's a day too long

I know you can see right through my eyes
Right through the lies
And I, I can't deny it, I've tried to fight it
But I'm scared of what life would be like
without you by my side

I'll hold on forever you you
Don't want to hear that's a day too long for me to
I know I'll hold on forever to you
Don't want to hear that's a day too long

I don't believe in impossible anymore
I've got pictures of you tattooed on my brain
I don't believe in impossible anymore
I've got pictures of you
That's all I need
That's all I need
To believe that we'll meet again
