Track Name: Where You Are
Where You Are

My best instinct was to burn all the pictures
I sold the car that we used to drive
But now I fear I'll finally discover
What it was I never wanted to find

As I bleed you out
I'm falling down
So hold me now
Well I'm calling all my friends
But they're not around
Well it's like we never met
And I wish I never found out

What you are
Well of any place I've seen
I just want to be
Where you are
But we both know what we did
We wear our problems on our skin

Yeah, I am flawed, but I'm always in motion
Does that mean that I'm best alone
And if I stay and I fake motivation
I've thrown away our happy home

So I bleed you out
I'm falling down
So hold me now
Well I'm calling all my friends
But they're not around
Well it's like we never met
And I wish I never found out

What you are
Well of any place I've seen
I just want to be
Where you are
But we both know what we did
We wear our problems on our skin

Well I, I took a plane out east
When I heard you speak my name
And I, I'll never stop
If you promise me the same

I'll bleed you out
I'm falling down
So hold me now
Well I'm calling all my friends
But they've moved on
Well it's like we never met
And I wish I never found out

What you are
Well of any place I've seen
I just want to be
Where you are
But we both know what we did
We wear our problems on our skin
Some will win and some will lose
Well I feel like I've lost again

So I bleed you out
Track Name: Grow
Grow

Well I was always running on my way
To collecting my chips
So I could have them all
When I met you, I gave up the chase
I built up that house, and watched the roof fall
When I let you in

And all the chances that I didn't take
They're all coming back around to haunt me now
But you took my hand, and made me stand up
Taller than I ever did baby
When I let you in

If I lost my faith, I'd believe in you
If I lost my eyes, I would see you
The walls I've built are coming down
I can feel again

And the warning signs that line my walls
You've given me reason after reason not to heed their words
They cause no worry to me
I believe it started on the day
When I let you in

If I lost my faith, I'd believe in you
If I lost my eyes, I would see you
The walls I've built are coming down
I can feel again

Now I let you in

If I lost my faith, I'd believe in you
If I lost my eyes, I would see you
The walls I've built are coming down
I can feel again
Track Name: The Radio
The Radio

Foolish lines and just a little resolve
Sleeping by the telephone
Two weeks was all it took to make you all of mine
So turn this up and let the feelings flow
Remember how it felt to feel it grow
I'll write the songs about how the feeling goes away

Woah...
Can you feel me on your radio?
I want to cut you like you let me down
You should've known
That you had my head and were holding on to my heart
You fall in love, and you throw it out

I drove you out to 31st & Park
Undressing you in the back of a car
I couldn't tell you today who was it led, and who followed
You said "I love you, but I love to lose"
"And me, well I ain't got no excuse"
The kind of hits you gave me baby don't leave no bruises

Woah...
Can you feel me on your radio?
I want to cut you like you let me down
You should've known
That you had my head and were holding on to my heart
You fall in love, and you throw it out

Like all of our nights you drank away
Saying I was the chance you wouldn't take
Lovin's more than bullet for your gun
Tell me girl, what're you running from?

Woah...
Can you feel me on your radio?
I want to cut you like you let me down, yeah
You should've known
That you had my head and were holding on to my heart
You fall in love, and you throw it out

Like all of our nights you drank away
Saying I was the chance you wouldn't take
Lovin's more than bullet for your gun
Tell me girl, what're you running from?
Track Name: In Too Deep
In Too Deep

She's got everything she wants
She plays guitars
And she dances like the movies

So tell me something I don't know
This could be over in a minute
Or the start of something more
Oh, here we go...
I met her when she crashed her car
She fell on my chair
Now she's knocking on my hotel door
Yeah, say no...

Oh but now you've gone and done it
You're so out of line
Instead of sleeping at night
I'm out killing time with you

She's got everything she wants
She plays guitars
And she dances like the movies
She's got enough to leave my head
A mess inside
When I saw her there
I couldn't help but stare
And watch the days turn into weeks
Oh God, by now I'm in too deep
I'm in too deep

She said to me "I've been here before
Well I know what it's like
To meet a man with a mouth
Just like yours
Well I know that you talk something smooth
Why don't you save it for later
And just shut up and move"
Oh yeah, I do...

Oh but now you've gone and done it
You're all out of line
God damn, it's four in the morning
And I'm headed home with you

She's got everything she wants
She plays guitars
And she dances like the movies
She's got enough to leave my head
A mess inside
When I saw her there
I couldn't help but stare
And watch the days turn into weeks
Oh God, by now I'm in too deep

Well she said
"Tell me something I don't know
Like the way your shirt looks
On the floor"
Tell me this is not all in my head

She's got everything she wants
She plays guitars
And she dances like the movies
She's got enough to leave my head
A mess inside
When I saw her there
I couldn't help but stare
And watch the days turn into weeks
Oh God, by now I'm in too deep
Track Name: The Spark
The Spark

Wait outside a San Francisco bar
With your heart of steel
Drive until the silence breaks us down
My hands on the wheel

Oh, now you're messing with the message
That I gave you
And the simple thought
Of my heart, and your heart
Intertwined

How're we going to live if we don't try?
Well I won't let you pass me by

You are the one that takes the chances
You are the spark that starts the fires
You are the one that keeps the late nights
And when I'm falling to pieces
You mend me

You've got enough behind your eyes
To see me for who I am
So why is such a lovely little thing like you
Running 'round with me again and again

Oh, getting even's such an easy thing to do, doll
When you know me through and through
And my heart, and your heart
Are intertwined

How're we going to live if we don't try?
Well I won't let you pass me by

You are the one that takes the chances
You are the spark that starts the fires
You are the one that keeps the late nights
And when I'm falling to pieces
You mend me

You are the one that takes the chances
You are the spark that starts the fires
You are the one that keeps the late nights
And when I'm falling to pieces
You mend me
Track Name: I'm Waiting
I'm Waiting

It's kind of hard to be lonely lately
I've been riding around with this girl in my head
Ever since she showed me last night's faces
I've been thinking of the places
I could take her in

Well I want you to love me, baby
And I want you to rattle my bones
And I want you to stay now, baby
Well surely you don't sleep alone

And I'm waiting
For the day when you are not just a stranger
I'll be the one to finally deal with your danger
I will have you, I will have my salvation
When I take you, little mama
And rub the chip on your shoulder out

Shoot me down before I fall to slowly
'Cause what I had with you, damn girl
It lit a fire
And as I'm stepping over last night's clothing
Oh my head, my head, is running wild

Well I want you to love me, baby
And I want you to rattle my bones
And I want you to stay now, baby
Well surely you don't sleep alone

And I'm waiting
For the day when you are not just a stranger
I'll be the one to finally deal with your danger
I will have you, I will have my salvation
When I take you, little mama
And rub the chip on your shoulder out

And I want you to love me, baby
And I want you to rattle my bones
And I want you to stay now, baby
'Cause I don't want to sleep alone

And I'm waiting
For the day when you are not just a stranger
I'll be the one to finally deal with your danger
I will have you, I will have my salvation
When I take you, little mama
And rub the chip on your shoulder out
Track Name: Hit Me Harder
Hit Me Harder

You think you're kind of sharp
In your four-inch heels
You drink like your daddy does
Well all of the talk over the cigarettes
You said you don't believe in love

But I think I kind of like you
Might take you home tonight, yeah
Maybe even settle down

So hit me harder, 'cause it feels good
And leave me with a lesson that I'll never learn
And if I embraced you, I must confess
Your words don't mean a thing when you're in that dress
So hit me harder, 'cause it's all I know
Just one more forced apology, and I'll go

You're the prettiest thing that I would never touch
And all of our talk that was
Turned into screaming, over bourbon and gin
Are the reasons to believe in us

But I think that I could take you
Maybe even change you
And make you settle down

So hit me harder, 'cause it feels good
And leave me with a lesson that I'll never learn
And if I embraced you, I must confess
Your words don't mean a thing when you're in that dress
So hit me harder, 'cause it's all I know
Just one more forced apology, and I'll go

And all of the chances that you told me to take
With your lips to mine in the club bathrooms
And all of the hearts that you love to break
Well you'll never change.

So hit me harder, 'cause it feels good
And leave me with a lesson that I'll never learn
And if I embraced you, I must confess
Your words don't mean a thing when you're in that dress
So hit me harder, 'cause it's all I know
Just one more forced apology, and I'll go
Track Name: Island
Island

Welcome home now, you've hardly changed
But it's been so long
Since I have seen that look on your face
How've you been?
Tell me, have you lived?
Did you get the things you wanted,
And the people you loved?
And do you remember what I said
When we were young?

That when you fall, together we will be
On an island, where you learned to see yourself
Way above it all
Just how I've seen you always

Whenever you feel like you're alone
And when you fall down
And you're the only one around
Call my name
And I will run to your place
And I will say your name aloud
And I will sing your songs
And I'm not one to promise anything
But believe me now

That when you fall, together we will be
On an island, where you learned to see yourself
Way above it all
Just how I've seen you always
Just how I've seen you there

Well I remember when I let you go
And how it felt to let you know
That I loved you
But it's time to grow

And when you fall, together we will be
On an island, where you learned to see yourself
Way above it all
Just how I've seen you always
Just how I've seen you there

And when you fall, together we will be
On an island
Way above it all, again
Just how I left you there
Track Name: I'll See You
I'll See You

Standing here, hearing my dream is over
Well they say we can't change where we're going
Tell me that I'm done, and I'll deny you
Run at me with your loaded guns
And I'll survive you

And on the edge, I push away
Across the open
Running straight ahead
And I'm depending on all I've known
And all I'm leaving
I'll see you in the end

Give me strength, when I'm down and I'm tired
Give me love, when I'm amidst all the liars
I will take just what I need when I'm moving
Pick your place
'Cause this town is for losers

And on the edge, I push away
Across the open
Running straight ahead
And I'm depending on all I've known
And all I'm leaving
I'll see you in the end

And on the edge, I push away
Across the open
Running straight ahead
And I'm depending on all I've known
And all I'm leaving
I'll see you in the end
