Track Name: No Troubles
I'm secretly at war with your heart
I'm gonna show you why I care
Because maybe one day you'll understand
Why I'm telling you these things

Because we know, as we grow
That our feelings they may change
And if there's one thing that I've learned
About the rules to this game
Is we don't have to play
But I have to say
You look so beautiful to me
Let's say we take a walk
Maybe head back to my place

We've got to learn to
Forget about our troubles babe
Because the only thing that matters
Is what's inside your heart

I'm secretly at war with your heart
But I'm determined not to lose
I'm pulling out all of the stops now on you baby
I'll be the one that you finally choose

Because we know, as we grow
That our feelings they may change
And if there's one thing that I've learned
About the rules to this game
Is we don't have to play
But I have to say
You look so beautiful to me
Let's say we take a walk
Maybe head back to my place

We've got to learn to
Forget about our troubles babe
Because the only thing that matters
Is what's inside your heart

We've got to learn to
Forget about our troubles babe
Because the only thing that matters
Is what's inside your heart
Track Name: Wrong Road
I shattered the stars in your eyes to find solace
You couldn't believe what I said
I counted the moments until you were silent
And then I just nodded my head

We pretended our minds were lost
And drifted to a better place
Closed our eyes on the bed as one
And never addressed our mistakes

Awoken by silence to find you were gone
I tore through the house right away
Left a note on the door, you were sorry
Because I thought you would stay

I see headlights pull up the street
It's a car that I recognize
You came back to make ammends
But I burst at the seams

You took the wrong road
Don't leave your lover alone
Peel back the disguise
Let me see the real you inside
Track Name: Catch on Fire
I see the new day sunrise
And everything is alright
The darkness clears away
And gives birth to another day
And through it all I'm trying
To keep my spirit flying
I want to speak what's true
And that's why
I will watch you

Catch on fire
To the rhythms of the water
I'll watch you catch on fire
To the rhythms of the water

Empty streets are calling me
Likely people pass my eyes
I ain't got the mind to leave
So I leave my mind behind
So I can watch you

Catch on fire
To the rhythms of the water
I'll watch you catch on fire
To the rhythms of the water
Track Name: Answers
Save us from the answers we don't know

When the sky won't open I'll cry my tears
Who knows where my lonely ends
Tell myself it'll be alright
Break down my last defense

Save us from the answers we don't know

Call out to the gods up on high
Pray for my saving grace
Look upon the horizons for answers
Stare into the face of death

Save us from the answers we don't know
Track Name: Longshot Redemption
Will I run to you
Will I call out your name
And will you hunger too
And leave your guidance with no shame
And what am I to do
When you try to place the blame on me
This is my question to you
This is my question to you

Who will save me
When the wind won't push up my sail
The struggle always finds you
No matter who you are
Like a ship without a captain
You can drift so far
So take a little time to remember
How important you are

Some people want
To drink from the cup that's always full
Can't you be satisfied
With what you have been given
You gave yourself up
To your selfish desires
This is my question to you
This is my question to you

Who will save me
When the wind won't push up my sail
The struggle always finds you
No matter who you are
Like a ship without a captain
You can drift so far
So take a little time to remember
How important you are

Who will save me
When the wind won't push up my sail
The struggle always finds you
No matter who you are
Like a ship without a captain
You can drift so far
So take a little time to remember

How important you are
How important you are
How important you are
How important you are
Track Name: Marble Swing
When I called you baby
I begged you just to see your face
I hadn't saw you lately
I needed just a little taste

Because you know that I've wondered
How things got to be this way
Because you stole all my thunder
And then you just threw it away

When you walked through the door
Oh, my mouth just dropped to the floor
Tell me what am I facing
I need to even up the score

Because you know that I've wondered
How things got to be this way
Because you stole all my thunder
And then you just threw it away
Track Name: Mirrors
Can you see the mirrors inside my head
They seem to reflect to me that I'm dead
The path that I walk
Unknown how it found me
For I wish these mirrors
Would just let me be
Can you see the mirrors inside my head
They seem to reflect to me that I'm dead
The path that I walk
Unknown how it found me
For I wish these mirrors
Would just let me be

I wait and wait for the time to come
When no longer will I have to run
I struggle and fight for the life I've built
And forget all about the blood that I've spilt

Can you see the mirrors inside my head
They seem to reflect to me that I'm dead
The path that I walk
Unknown how it found me
For I wish these mirrors
Would just let me be
Can you see the mirrors inside my head
They seem to reflect to me that I'm dead
The path that I walk
Unknown how it found me
For I wish these mirrors
Would just let me be

I wait and wait for the time to come
When no longer will I have to run
I struggle and fight for the life I've built
And forget all about the blood that I've spilt

I wait and wait for the time to come
When no longer will I have to run
I struggle and fight for the life I've built
And forget all about the blood that I've spilt
Track Name: On The Bright Side
On the bright side
Where I know you love me
Things are never gonna be the same
The same old trials test you
You can't win or get out of the game

I can't wait any longer
To tell you how I feel
Maybe, someday, we'll be together
But I can't wait that long

Oooh, baby I'm on my knees
Oooh, maybe I'll see you there
I'm, begging you darling please
Can you save me from myself?

On the bright side
Where I know you love me
Things are never gonna be the same
The same old trials test you
You can't win or get out of the game

Oooh, baby I'm on my knees
Oooh, maybe I'll see you there
I'm, begging you darling please
Can you save me from myself?
Track Name: Big Town Rock
Oh aye aye aye
Can't escape from my mind
Oh aye aye aye
Won't let myself be defined
Whoa oh oh, whoa oh

It's so hard to find
A place in this world
Will it be this way forever
The places you go
And the people you know
Will either make you or forsake you
Track Name: The Best For Last
We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last
We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last

You come home
The lights go out
I'm having trouble with my heart for you honey
It gets cold
You'll freeze your bones
You'll make it hotter with your smile now

Who will write the words that we'll play tonight
Make you shake you move
Make you dance
If we play this song
Then you'll feel alright
I don't care either way

We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last
We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last

The night's slow
Let's hit the town
I gotta do what will set my soul on fire
So breathe in
The air is thick
I'll admit you've got me going

Who will write the words that we'll play tonight
Make you shake you move
Make you dance
If we play this song
Then you'll feel alright
I don't care either way

We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last
We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last

We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
Save the best for last
We'll save the best for last
We can make it if we try
The best for last
