Leaving You 03:02
Lately it seems that the distance between You and me is getting far I don't mind, I'm just starting to find That I need to be where you are Goodnight, here comes the daylight And I'm so tired of leaving you Someday, whenever my heart breaks  I won't be able to leave you Someday soon There are two river shores between my hand and yours And it feels like an ocean sometimes  And I'll use any excuse to make my way back to you  And do I make your blue eyes shine like you do, mine? You can tell I don't want to leave when we have to part But I think that you should know that I hold you in my heart 
I'll Get By 03:24
I was born on these muddy banks But I say no thanks, oh no no no I was made for streets of gold That where I’m going, I’m going home I was made for streets of gold How you sleeping where the wild things are? Baby, you living a lie If you can’t go where I need to go Then bye, bye, baby, bye Well, you try to swim up stream But that river, she’s a killer Dry your eyes for heaven’s sake Fall on your face, no you’re not alone And everyone’s trying to make it home Who you being? Where you been? Don’t forget to tell now, all your friends No matter what happens, you’ll get by Now sing it high, I’ll get by, I’ll get by, I’ll get by Now one more time, I’ll get by, I’ll get by, I’ll get by
You take your parents’ advice, don’t repeat yourself twice When you sing songs you mix up the words You always look cute in a new pair of shoes And I love when you whistle at birds Well, I fear this is the only time That I’ll ever have your hand in mine ‘Cos tomorrow you’ll be gone but for now, you’re on my arm And I’ll love you for the rest of today Well, you’re awkwardly sweet, with a kiss on the cheek The future is bringing me down The miscellaneous things that tug at the strings Of my heart that is breaking right now I’ll make you happy, baby You’ll never think to leave me
Goodbye 03:12
Everybody's talking 'bout you coming back in town I don't care, you never wanted me around  And everyone's aware of how you let your walls fall down  You beautiful thing, what makes you think I'd want you now? So goodbye  To all those pretty words you say You making eyes my way You trying to make my day Everyone is certain you and I were meant to be  I don't know, I think I might disagree  I was only 18 when you brought me to my knees  You said you loved me then left me lonely in that street  So goodbye  To the way you swing your hips The way you pout your lips  You blowing me that kiss
Stop once, blink twice  C'mon and settle down and try to play nice  Three times, I'll be true  Four times, I'm gonna turn away from you  Well, the leaves on the trees is barking like a dog in the wind it's a sin to  tell me that I made it once again all my friends is  Teething out the one side of their mouth then they shout all these lies out the other side When I was bleeding all I was needing  Was just a little company while I healed  But you threw it away for all the pleasures of day And the night showed our fight Was just you feeling how you feel  I'm tired, you're tired  I think the devil made us numb to this fire  Well, let's agree to disagree  I can't believe that you would turn away from me  What I mean when I scream is How much that I want this all to work I'm a jerk just tell me that the answer is a yes I confess That I have a little issue with the trust it's a must to find the time to draw the final line
Hey darling c,mon, c’mon c’mon I’ll take you on, I will take you out Tell me what went wrong, we were doing alright I lost the words, and now you’re gone I want you, I need you I need you to, see everything new ‘Cause baby these gray skies turn blue Only if you want them to We drove into town and I watched you slowly drown I was the only one you wanted around It’s not bad to never know, but it won’t make it easier baby I saw the one you love implode It was a sorry sight The wishing well was just a show And I know that everything will be alright
Say I love you and I’ll believe you That you won’t stray anymore Lord knows I miss you and I’m going to kiss you As soon as you walk through that door All good mothers, they forgive Men of Wisdom, they forgive And our God above, he forgives I am none of these, but I can forgive Well, the wind blows through my windows And takes all your love form my hands But do not worry, I know you’re sorry And you’ll do everything that you can
In Hell 02:29
Why do you talk so lowly Whenever your eyes I find? Why do you walk so slowly From nobody’s house but mine? Do you love me, do you love me? Why don’t I know if you love me? Do you love me? Oh, I can’t tell And the wondering feels like I’m in hell What’s in your pretty head, dear? Are you hanging on words that I’ve said? What do you dream in your bed here? Are we side by side when we’re dead?
Cold Gold 03:05
I’m on drugs, it’s the thought of your love It’s the thought of your love that downs me up You know, you know, you know, you know It’s the thought of your love that makes things rough Why you gotta make me sigh? Don’t even try to cry You’re cold gold, baby, and you know it Where’d you go baby? You disappear up close You disappear up close, so where’d you go? Say something pretty and I’d like you more It’s the thought of your love that got you out that door When you go, you’re going away And when you’re gone, I want you to stay
The Gift 02:15
We were together for years Burned in the laughter and tears We loved each other, but then it was over And you said you left me a gift Where is it? Where’s my gift? You only told me one thing And you didn’t tie any strings Take what you left me, it won’t bereft me It’s all wrapped up in the gift I have looked all over here Give me a hint, just a glint The moments you’re stealing from all of my feelings I just want to know what it is It’s the gift The gift, the gift, the gift you give, the gift
Seven hours left to go Make a pillow of your coat And the feeling of familiar roads will let you know you're home And maybe in this time you find an answer Or maybe you don't
