Track Name: Secrets Are No Fun
People say that secrets are no fun

Not unless you share them with everyone

But then they wouldn’t quite be secrets anymore

I think I’d rather meet you secretly at the back door


Now that we have mastered our escape

Let’s go for a walk and stay out way too late

Then we’ll tell our stories of our recent past

And the early morning hours will go by so fast

It’s okay, the secret’s safe with me

It’s alright, we’ve kept it quiet easily
Cause I know we’re both in similar positions

And we’re not in shape to make any decisions

And yeah what will our friends say? Probably secrets secrets are no fun
And we will nod our heads and say “unless you are involved in one”

Some may say that this could be a sin

But something bout the secrecy just draws me in
Even with my hesitance I have to say

I’m amused and entertained, I think this game is fun to play

Here’s the catch, I have a secret too

Secretly I think I’m falling hard for you

But I’ll just stick with melodies and call you friend

But you’re exactly what I thought I’d never find again

Track Name: Drive
Let me take the wheel and let me travel down this road
Oh I could steer forever though I don’t know where it goes
Thinking back I never really thought you’d disappear
Oh I drive these streets alone now but I still pretend you’re here

It’s been quite a while but it still feels like yesterday

When you said that we’d be fine because you weren’t that far away
Thinking back I think I always knew you’d disappear

Oh I drive these streets alone now but I still pretend you’re here

And all night I’ll drive, yea 
All night I’ll drive, drive
Cause you, You you are everywhere, you are everywhere

You you are everywhere, you are everywhere

Tell me, how’s it going, well I hope you’re doing fine

and I guess I have to ask because you are no longer mine

Thinking back can you say you’re glad you disappeared?
Cause I drive these streets alone now but I still pretend you’re here

Thinking back I never really thought you’d disappear

Oh I drive these streets alone now but I still pretend you’re here

Track Name: Raspberry Tea
The clock is ticking, time will be out soon

You’ll be older, I’ll mean nothing to you
You’ll move on to better things and I’ll be stuck here waiting for
someone to make me feel the way you do
How’d it feel when he asked me out to dinner?
I could tell you didn’t like the way he walked me home that night

But you just turned around and now I’m sitting all alone

Sipping my raspberry tea
How quiet of me

I keep falling even when I know

soon it will be time for you to go

This is best for us right now, the timing is all wrong
but maybe
 someday we can meet and try again

It’s not easy when we’re both not sober

I could see it in your eyes, you wanted me with you that night

But you just turned around and now I’m sitting all alone

Sipping my raspberry tea

How quiet of me

You’ll move on to better things

Will there be someone to make me feel the way you do?

But you just turned around and now I’m sitting all alone

Sipping my raspberry tea
How quiet of me

Track Name: I Should've Said Hello
I remember when I first heard the song that taped my heart together
You were there, and I was young and lonely

I remember when I first saw you play that night on your guitar
I should’ve said hello, but I was shy and lonely

Oh, where would we be?
If you hadn’t seen me at that party down the street

I should’ve said hello so long ago


Now you play your songs to me on mornings when I’m too asleep

to move or say a word, please know that I am listening
I can tell you all my fears and know you’re there to dry my tears
But I don’t like to cry, I like that you are listening

Oh, where would we be?
I counted to three and held my breath and took the leap

I should’ve said hello so long ago

Here I am I’m sitting here just looking at you thinking something

I have thought a million times before
Just before I spit it out I hear those words right from your mouth

and suddenly, I can not speak

I’ve forgotten all my doubts, the ones I used to write about

You are here, and I’m so glad you’re mine

I was always very sure that song had taped my heart together

But you filled in the cracks, I’m lucky that you’re mine

Oh, where would we be?
Come drink some tea and hold my hand and talk to me
I should have said hello so long ago

Track Name: The List
I bet you never thought I’d leave you in the
middle of the night while you were sleeping soundly
Well I never thought I’d feel the need to send that message
and be gone in the morning
Cause after all I’m just another girl for you to call

I hate to break the news darlin you’re not that guy at all

No you’re not the guy to have a list 
to go through on the weekends
And you’re not the guy to do things like this

I know your words are true
Something doesn’t add up

How can you say those honest things

And then pick yourself up

And leave me here to sing, oh, oh, oh

I guess the rumor’s true that no one can be
 perfect,
even somebody like you

I guess I always knew you had your list of suitors

Why would I stand out to you?
I know you say it’s not me it’s just not the time right now

so I’ll just find another guy while you go get around

I know you’re hurting but don’t lose yourself along the way

You’re the type who shouldn’t want a new girl every day
It’s slightly out of character for you and I know why

It’s such a shallow excuse for a not so shallow guy
Track Name: Twisted Sheets
Somewhere in those twisted sheets I lost my self control
It got stuck inside the cotton and the space between your toes
It crawled across your chest and disappeared into the wall
But I was still, I did not run, my muscles proved too small

Closer, closer, closer, I feel myself let go
Everything is breaking, I wonder if you know
I’m falling through the wrinkles, my heart glued to the seams
I won’t get any closer, I won’t get any closer

Here we are again, our limbs are tangled at our sides
But our hands are always lonely, fingers never intertwined
I’ll keep your note and neatly fold it back into my drawer
Remember what you said when you don’t want me anymore

Somewhere in those twisted sheets I lost my self control
It got stuck inside the cotton and the space between your toes
I saw it dangling from your sleeve, I tried to reach but then
You were gone again, my heart in hand
Track Name: Over and Over
I hear you love the rain

Well good news, I love it too
Let’s love the rain together

On your couch like old times
I’ll fill you with my stories

Of the year we’ve spent apart

And then you’ll fill me with yours

I’ll believe you when you say you’ve missed me

Wait, what am I saying?
You have single handedly destroyed me
I’ve lied to myself over and over

You’d think I would learn

You are absolutely no good for me

But I keep coming back over and over

I’ve shut the door behind you

And I’ve tried to stay away

I’ve worked to keep my distance

I’ve been fine, until now

This town is far too small

So I guess we’ll meet again

But only once will I see you

Or maybe twice, or maybe more

I’ll always forgive 
but I’m finding it quite hard to forget

I want you here
 but you don’t deserve my friendship quite yet

I’m trying my best
 but my mind is weaker than my heart

I’ll keep coming back over and over



Track Name: Tonguetied
I’ve been thinking in my sleep

Waking up with words floating around me

Before I write ‘em down I take a look around
and see you next to me, sleeping quietly
I get lost and suddenly

My words have disappeared, I miss them dearly

Isn’t it a shame, I’ve lost my thoughts again
and now I’m stumbling, words are crumbling

Oh, these days go by so slowly

Everytime you go I hope I’ll write something to keep while you’re away

I promise that I’ve tried, I find myself tonguetied 

No matter what I do, my words are kept with you
