Track Name: Before We Go
Listen…..Take it all back if you want to….cause it won’t hurt me anymore. Go ahead and slam that door. I head for the bedroom. Hit the floor.

I’m so stupid. Shut my mouth. Never speak a word to you again. But I know that’s not the plan.
People say I’m just crazy. But I just say I’m crazy about you. Look into my eyes and see it’s true.

One more kiss before you go. Cause it’s so hard, when I’m alone.
Please take my hand, were almost home. Hold on tight. Before we go.

Don’t give a damn a whatcha think about me. Half of the time, you think I’m wrong and you’re right and you think that it’s fine? You find it funny? Well I find it kinda sad. It’s the truth. Cause all I think about is you.


Always giving up, never really gave a damn. Well games done, checkmate, now a new plan. I put my pawns back in line and try this one more time. Ya see, everything could be ok in the end….Farewell my friends.

Your thoughts just seem to slip away. Your lies tell me, that your eyes betray. But I can’t seem to just walk away. Now that time has mended everything for you……So come on baby, does it make you feel better to know you made it through?

But it’s like I’m going back on everything, and thinking I can’t ever make a difference. Wishing and wanting but I’m always keeping secrets. So I sit back and think of the time when I knew it was true. Drop dead…..always thinking of you.
But as the lights turn off and I can see so clear, hell all I wanted was to shed all this fear. So I grab a gun made for two, always thinking of you…but now I’m left screaming…

One more kiss before you go. Baby I know that it’s hard, but please don’t leave me alone. And know that this pain it can take a toll, hold on tight…..before we go.


Don’t give a damn a whatcha think about me. Half of the time, you think I’m wrong and you’re right and you think that it’s fine? You find it funny? Well I find it kinda sad. It’s the truth. Cause all I think about is you.

Don’t give a damn what you thought about me. Half of the time…you thought I’m wrong and you’re right and you thought that its fine? You found it funny? Well I found it kinda sad…It’s the truth. Cause all I thought about was you.

Track Name: Better Off This Way
I spent most of my days, watching you catch those rays. You sat by the beach side, as the sun it hit your face. I can still remember how she looked at me that day. I loved her with all my heart, and how much I miss those days.

And no, no, no, I’m not the same. But that’s okay, because I’m better off this way. And despite what I may think or say, I know I’m better off this way.

I spend most of my days, wiping these tears away. You spend most of your time, thinking it’s better this way. But was it so hard to put my feelings into play? Well I guess all those lies you told, they came straight from your heart that day.

And no, no, no, I’m not the same. But that’s okay, because I’m better off this way. And despite what I may think or say, I know I’m better off this way.

So long ago, Oh no, no I dreamed of these days with you. And if I had them all back, I’d trade em all away, cause I’m not the same, but that’s okay. Because I’m better off this way. And despite what I may think or say…I know I’m better off this way. Oh I’m not the same but that’s okay…..I know I’m better off this way.

Track Name: Lower Your Tone
She starts with stop baby. Just lower your tone. Do you want me to leave right now? Leave you alone? Well, I don’t know. And it struck me as strange, where did our love go? If you ever gave a damn, baby I would understand, add the pieces to the puzzle, devise another plan, and we would grow. How we could grow, how we could grow, grow, grow….

But it’s ok with me, just take your time. Cause it won’t be long, I won’t be far behind. The wind’s on my back, and I feel, I feel so alone. It won’t be long, until I find…my way back home.

She said lower your tone. Do you want me to leave right now? Leave this alone…..

And after all of the words we shared, how could lovers end this way? Was it so hard to change your ways? Well you choose to stay the same. So I sit back and I think of times, and the places we would hide, all the joy that was inside, burning through both of our eyes. But I don’t give a damn a whatcha think about it honey. Your two timing, always backstabbing, lying to my face....Do you mean what you say as you back all those words while you sit there and prove to me you're fake?

But it’s ok with me, baby take your time. Cause it won’t be long, I won’t be far behind. The wind’s on my back, and I feel, I feel so alone. It won’t be long, until I find…my way back home.

I think it’s funny, though it’s kinda strange, I’m thinking of better days but never the change. You know I want it and she had it but were both to blame, for all that happened those days. So we could go back thinking that were clever, and thinking things were right but they were never all better. And now I know because I’ve got just myself to blame, and no I wasn’t the same. But now I change, and I’d like to think, that things could be, so easily, turned back to what I want…and what they used to be. But now I know that it can’t change, and now I know that she stay the same…I felt it as she flew so high, I keep drying my eyes as she soared to the sky…god damn she was so high…

Well she made her choices, and she took her stand. And after all of the things that we had...It didn’t mean a damn. She took her wings, and she soared so far from home. She won’t be back cause she’s lost……all alone.

So just lower your tone……Do you want them to leave right now?

Track Name: Time To Move On
How could she act like that? Well it’s not the first time.
But she meant so much for so long...But I know that it’s over now.

Why did these things have to end this way?
Well who knew that she could be so cold but hey, I know I’m better off this way, cause it’s not my first time…

Then I drop to my knees, I’m begging you baby oh please…I know that you’re strong, and I’m pleading baby hold on. Oh’ no, no All the tension I cause, I’m blinded by things I can't see. “I’m so scared to stay strong…it’s time to move on”

So, I’ll be missin and always wishin that she didn’t stand her ground.
It’s so simple, so, so simple. But baby she ain’t here now.

And all those things that you said to me, they didn’t mean a damn thing. O’ no, no, no, no.
Love was the game that we played, it’s so sad you lied that day. oh, no, no, no, no. And I see so clearly now. Just like a new born child. And I think it’s kind of sad that she’d stay, in that state of denial.

But then I drop to my knees, and I’m begging you baby oh please…I know that you’re strong, I’m pleading please baby hold on. Oh’ no, no All the pain that I cause, I’m blinded by things I can’t see.
You say you’re scared to stay strong? It’s time to move on.

It’s so simple, so so simple. But baby, she ain’t here now. So I’ll be missin and always wishing that, she didn’t stand her ground. Ya see...Time makes fools of us all, and I am living proof. I won’t get mad, though I’m always sad that our love no it wasn’t true.
I'll go ahead and go breakdown.

Go and breakdown....

And let it all hang out......

It’s so simple, so simple. But baby, she ain’t here now.

I’ll be missin and always wishing that, she didn’t stand her ground.

And it all comes back to you....

Track Name: The Jig Is Up (I Don't Think So)
Time just passes, the minutes fade away, days just blend, nothing feels the same.

Haunted by these thoughts of you, I feel strangled and twisted from the pain you put me through.

X’s and O’s……Well I don’t think so.
All those lies that you told…..I don’t think so.

All I do is just sit and think of all of those times that we spent together….no…

Sit alone, left for dead, I find away to lift my head again.

X’s and O’s……Well I don’t think so.
All those lies that you told…..I don’t think so.

I hang my head low, no where to go…now looking back at all that I know.
And how I wish I could find the answers inside…I’m always searching but I know it’s a lie.
But how I wish it were true, these feelings for you. The jig is up go on and call me a fool.
And I know that it’s all over now, I hung my head as she stood her ground.

X’s and O’s……Well I don’t think so.
No, No, No, No I don’t think so.
No, No, No, No I don’t think so.
No, No, No, No I didn’t think so.
