Track Name: F.I.A.D.O.
Baby, Oh baby,
I really want to tell you that
I feel a little reckless in all the worse ways

I'm sorry, I know that
I've been a little crazy
But its been a little difficult by myself I know

[I know you're frustrated
And don't know how to tell you
But I need a little time to myself

It's getting backbreaking
I push back my emotions
To put it all aside to make things right again]

When everything that comes together falls apart
It could be worse
It could be raining

And now I'm finding myself
Through all this mess
(Sit back, relax, take it from the start again)
(I know that I haven't been the best of friends)

I'm trying my hardest
to be your everything
(But it's hard when I'm breaking)

It gets a little heavy
When all I want
Is to find out who I am
But things are falling apart again

You won't even give
Me a second chance
I'm trying real hard
To be a better man

And I can't be what you want me to be
When I don't even know who I am
I think I'm going crazy baby
I hope you understand
(We're going back to the start again)

When everything that comes together falls apart
It could be worse
It could be raining

And now I'm finding myself
Through all this mess
(Sit back, relax, take it from the start again)
(I know that I haven't been the best of friends)

I'm trying my hardest
to be your everything
(But it's hard when I'm breaking)

(But it's hard when I'm breaking)
[We're going back to the start again]

And now I'm finding myself
Through all this mess
(Sit back, relax, take it from the start again)
(I know that I haven't been the best of friends)

I'm trying my hardest
to be your everything
(But it's hard when I'm breaking)

And now I'm finding myself
Through all this mess
(Let's take this back to the start)

But now I'm trying to be you're everything
(But it's hard when I'm breaking)
Track Name: Who The Fuck Is Wendy?
Well she's got me
Tongue tied
And knots in my stomach
When she started moving closer to me
I think I'm going crazy

Grey eyes
Like every fret I'm strumming'
And I can't get you out of my mind
She's got me humming like

Woah oh oh x3
That grey eyed girl puts knots in my stomach
And we're just looking for love
We're all just looking for, love

I'll pull the ground on up to you
When your heads in the clouds
I'll be your only anchor
When there's no one else around

And I keep telling myself
Not to fall back down
But it's something else this time
When you're around you've got me going crazy
And I just want to make you mine

I've got my hands on your hips
And your name on my lips
And the one thing I just can't figure out
Is how every little thing
Just seems so perfect to me
When we could just fall out

You've got that hurricane smile
And pale white stare
And you started moving closer to me
I've got my heart beating faster
And well rehearsed words
But your making it harder to breathe

You've got me like woah oh oh x3
That grey eyed girl puts knots in my stomach
And we're just looking for love
We're all just looking for, love

I'll pull the ground on up to you
When your heads in the clouds
I'll be your only anchor
When there's no one else around

And I keep telling myself
Not to fall back down
But it's something else this time
When you're around you've got me going crazy
And I just want to make you mine

We're all just looking for
Just looking for
Just looking for
Love
x2

You've got me wrapped around your finger
You've got me out of my mind
Your words just cut right through me
All day all the time

We're all just looking for
Just looking for
Just looking for
Love
x2

I'll pull the ground on up to you
When your heads in the clouds
I'll be your only anchor
When there's no one else around

And I keep telling myself
Not to fall back down
But it's something else this time
When you're around you've got me going crazy
And I just want to make you mine
Track Name: Hang In There, Ladybug
Fuck the single life
It's driving me crazy,
And all I have to say is
What if just maybe,
We could walk around
Like we both own this town.

Well I've been showing you off
To all my friends,
We both laughed and talked
But then you ended it,
The same old song and dance
You're so renown.

And I'm just asking,
Why you said that.
I'm wondering,
Why you said that to me.
To me

[Chorus]

I'm trying just to get it right
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are over,
How could I just start this over?

I'm trying just to get it right
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are through,
And how could I just waste my time on you?


Fuck this single shit
I'm taking things from the top,
New girl, same hair,
But we just talk.
I stop myself from you.

Well, call me crazy,
Have you looked at me lately?
I think I'm best alone.
You think you can change me,
I hate to say, but you wont.

And I'm just asking,
Why you said that
I'm wondering,
Why you said that to me,
To me.

[Chorus]

I'm trying just to get it right
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are over,
How could I just start this over?

I'm trying just to get it right
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are through,
And how could I just waste my time on you?

Say what you want
But you're never gonna change me
Take all you want
But you're never gonna catch me now
Right now

Say what you want
But you're never gonna change me
Take all you want
But you're never gonna catch me now
Right now

I'm trying just to get it right
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are over,
How could I just start this over?

I'm trying just to get it right
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are through,
And how could I just waste my time on you?

[Chorus]

(Say what you want but you're never gonna change me)
I'm trying just to get it right
(Take all you want but you're never gonna catch me now)
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are over,
How could I just start this over?

(Say what you want but you're never gonna change me)
I'm trying just to get it right
(Take all you want but you're never gonna catch me now)
Trying just to get it right now
You and me are through,
And how could I just waste my time on you?
Track Name: 20,000 Miles
I was never one for words
But you my dear have got the best of me
I never knew that something like this could be

I gave up I was defeated but now it's clear to see,
The man that I was alway meant to be,

And I hope I can say this right,
That you, are the one I want tonight

We found love in all the wrong places
Put our hearts where they were never meant to be
But now I've found, new hope, new love, new changes,
On the man I thought I could never be,
When you're with me.

And twenty thousand miles couldn't keep us apart,
I've got these words in my head, and a hole in my heart and I,
Gave up my hope.

Now I've found you, when I'm around you, I can't keep to myself,
You're everything I've wanted and you just know how to help
To fix, this broken heart.

And please let me say this right,
You are all that I need tonight,

We found love in all the wrong places
Put our hearts where they were never meant to be
But now I've found, new hope, new love, new changes,
On the man I thought I could never be,
When you're with me.

I know that it's cliche but I don't give a damn
We'll be judged on who we are because they won't understand
What it's like to be this happy

I know that you're away but I will wait forever
Just to sing you my songs and to be together
At last and hear your laugh

We found love in all the wrong places
Put our hearts where they were never meant to be
But now I've found, new hope, new love, new changes,
On the man I thought I could never be,
When you're with me,

We found love in all the wrong places
Put our hearts where they were never meant to be
But now I've found, new hope, new love, new changes,
On the man I thought I could never be,
When you're with me.
Track Name: Cracked Ribs and Heavy Hearts
And I've been drinking for days
To forget everything you've said to me
You're like a warm deep cut in my skin
And I can't shake out all these memories

I'm lost and forgotten
You're voice has been haunting me
So please let me get some sleep
I'll talk to you when I am me again

You said you'd take my hand
And lead me to understand
How we should be together in the end

And I remember the stupid fights
We'd talk for hours every night
And everything felt right when you were there beside me

So here's to everything I've lost
Every hour I've lost you
Please wake me up when this can end
I should have never called you

And I've been drinking for days
To forget everything you've said to me
You're like a warm deep cut in my skin
And I can't shake out all these memories

I'm lost and forgotten
You're voice has been haunting me
So please let me get some sleep
I'll talk to you when I am me again

And all these lines inside my head
They keep me up when I'm in bed
I try to sing myself to sleep
But it's not the same when you're with me

I just can't find some peace of mind
Every minutes a waste of time
And if I don't act now
It just might pass me by

So here's to everything I've lost
Every hour I've lost you
Please wake me up when this can end
I should have never called you
Yeah I know

And I've been drinking for days
To forget everything you've said to me
You're like a warm deep cut in my skin
And I can't shake out all these memories

I'm lost and forgotten
You're voice has been haunting me
So please let me get some sleep
I'll talk to you when I am me again

And I've smoked all of these cigarettes
To try to reason with myself
How I fucked this up again

How could I throw all of this away
Its what I wanted but now I need you to stay

Just keep breathing
Headphones in
Reality out
Keep calm, carry on

And I've been drinking for days girl now please tell me this
If you give up on us now there'd be so much to miss
So please come back,
And I will give you all I can
So one day you and me will fall hand in hand
Track Name: Karma
With that look in your eyes,
I feel like I just died,
My hope sinks through the floor,

And I know you despise,
When I call every night,
But I just need some more.

So tell me darling
(Do you even want this?)
Tell me darling
(Do you even want me now?)
'Cause I can't tell

Well maybe this is karma
Maybe this is heartbreak
And I don't know just how much more
That I can take

Well maybe this is karma
I think I heard your heart break
Like a stain on your carpet
You can't get out
And I know that we won't be the same

I went out on the town
With my best friends
Tried to drink away the night

There you were at the bar
With your boyfriend
I bet I can win this fight

So take your best shot
(Hold him steady)
Take your best shot
(are you ready now?)
'Cause I can't tell

Well maybe this is karma
Maybe this is heartbreak
And I don't know just how much more
That I can take

Well maybe this is karma
I think I heard your heart break
Like a stain on your carpet
You can't get out
And I know that we won't be the same

(I don't need you)
I've got my friends
(I don't need this)
Well I've had enough of you now

(I don't need you)
I've got my friends
(I don't need this)
And I've had enough of you now

Well maybe this is karma
Maybe this is heartbreak

Well maybe this is karma
Maybe this is heartbreak
And I don't know just how much more
That I can take

Maybe this is karma
I think I heard your heart break
Like a stain on your carpet
You can't get out
And I know that we won't be
Like a stain on your carpet
You can't get out
And I know that we won't ever be the same
Track Name: Just Listen
I'm not settling
I'm not settling

Wake up sweetheart
The pages of our lives
Won't write themselves

We're too far
Away from everything
Away from ourselves

The journeys that we have
Play like movie screens
We wash away
From them

Can we just make this last
I've got twenty bucks somewhere
And I'm about to let you in

Just listen up
Yeah just listen

Take me far from here
I'm freaking out in the worst ways
I just want you here
All that I ask of you is that you stay

These words and melodies
Will never be the same when you're away
And all I want is
When they're singing your song tonight
Just listen

I'm not settling
I'm not settling x2

Remember all our times alone
Staying up til five
Talking on the phone

I've got a grand proposition for you
And I hope you take it
(Yeah just take it)

So dance your heart out
Your words from your mouth
Keep telling me to stay
But even if they didn't I probably would've anyway

Just listen up
Yeah just listen

Take me far from here
I'm freaking out in the worst ways
I just want you here
All that I ask of you is that you stay

These words and melodies
Will never be the same when you're away
And all I want is
When they're singing your song tonight
Just listen

I've got twenty dollars
And you've got your heart on my sleeve
Take it from me

I've got these problems
But it's alright when you're with me
Yeah take it from me

I've got twenty dollars
And a blanket in the back
I 'll run away with you
And we're never coming back
Well I've got twenty dollars
And tonight you're coming with me

Take me far from here
I'm freaking out in the worst ways
I just want you here
All that I ask of you is that you stay

These words and melodies
Will never be the same when you're away
And all I want is
When they're singing your song tonight
Just listen

I'm not settling
I'm not settling
Just listen

I'm not settling
I'm not settling
Yeah just listen
