Track Name: Don't Blame Love
Don't Blame Love

I gave you my heart and you gave me yours
All through the start my soul just soars
I never knew how my heart beat before
But, now I'm hooked and I want more and more
Suddenly my pain disappears
Suddenly I have no fears
Then I come home and to my disgrace
I find another man took my place

Note on the table, ring on the ground
It said she didn't want to be found
She got herself another fool
There's only one thing I know to be true

Love makes you blind, love makes you numb
Only from behind can you see toward the front
But, don't blame love
It's only doing what it does
No, no don't blame love
It's only doing what it does

Too many nights lost over this crime
She took my money she wasted my time
I gave that woman all I had
But, there is one thing that she couldn't grab
Suddenly my pain disappears
Suddenly I have no fears
I have a soul where she has a hole
I'll never know how to be so cold

Note on the table, ring on the ground
It said she doesn't want to be found
She got herself another fool
It's the same one that's been in her shoes

Love makes you blind, love makes you numb
Only from behind can you see toward the front
But, don't blame love it's only doing what it does
No, no don't blame love it's only doing what it does
Track Name: All The Wrong Things
All the Wrong Things

People, people what the Hell is going on?
How long, how long can we all hold strong?
Why, oh why does it seem doing right
Only leads to losing the fight?

Families stranded, left out in the cold
Our leaders wage war against their ghosts
Children wandering, left to misdirection
No wonder no one knows what the future holds

All the wrong things change
All the wrong thing stay the same
Too many wrong things said
Not enough time to explain
More money, more power, more war
Is there really nothing else worth fighting for?

People, people what the Hell is going on?
How long, how long can we all hold strong?
Why, oh why does it seem doing right
Only leads to losing the fight?

When will, when will we clear the smoke from our eyes
We all can't be wrong, we all can't be right
Meanwhile, meanwhile some hang on for their lives
Meanwhile others only hang on to their lies

All the wrong things change
All the wrong things stay the same
Too many wrong things said
Not enough time to explain
More money, more power, more war
Is there really nothing else worth fighting for
Track Name: Didn't You Think
Didn't You Think

I never even knew there was a problem
You still held me in your arms
Let me look into your eyes
The pieces of my heart
Lord, help me find them
Since you ran with all your charms
Leaving only all your lies

Didn't you think that you could still make me cry?
When you left before I
Thought it was time to say goodbye
Didn't you think that I was still in love with you?
When you left before we
Had a chance to work it through

I sit and wonder where it all went wrong
Spending too much time away
Holding secrets of my heart
My heart can't find the strength to say so long
Now what difference does it make
Cause it's all been torn apart

Didn't you think that you still make me cry?
When you left before I
Thought it was time to say goodbye
Didn't you think that I was still in love with you?
When you left before we
Had a chance to work it through

I wonder if you feel the loss?
Tell me, baby, was it worth the cost?
Are there still words that you want to say?
Or is that the price only for me to pay?

Didn't you think that you could still make me cry?
When you left before I
Thought it was time to say goodbye
Didn't you think that I was still in love with you?
When you left before we
Had a chance to work it through
Track Name: Innocent
Innocent

I know I hurt you sometimes
I know sometimes I make you cry
But, let me tell you for what it's worth
I hate it each and every time
And, I hate that I can't take it back
But, I swear I will try to make it right

I won't pretend to be innocent
And I won't pretend I don't want you again

I need your mercy tonight
You know your love is my delight
And, let me tell you for what it's worth
I love it each and every time
And, I love it when it's you and me in ecstasy
But, not when passion gets the best of me

I won't pretend to be innocent
And I won't pretend I don't want you again

I'm on my knees, but I'm not begging
I'm asking please, but I'm not expecting
I know I've done wrong
And it needs correcting
And I just can't go on
Without you forgiving me

I won't pretend to be innocent
And I won't pretend I don't want you again
Track Name: Side By Side
Side By Side

World goes crazy everybody starts taking sides
Some run to the left some run to the right
Scamming, scheming everybody wants to pull ahead
Lying, cheating doesn't matter who gets left behind
No one knows or cares so who's got what to say
Let the tv tell you what to think anyway
Soapbox preaching, teaching it don't matter when
We won't stand up, lift up, hang on side by side

We won't, we won't
We won't stand up, we won't
We won't lift up, we won't
We won't hang on
Side by side

Don't watch the news 'cause it's all in the history books
Everybody keeps biting on a rusty hook
Pick a side black or white, I got a bridge to sell
Waiting for a savior put your money in my wishing well
Same old story, same old game, same old flim-flam
Let's you down, leaves you lost, stuck in the same jam
Soapbox preaching, teaching it don't matter when
We won't stand up, lift up, hang on side by side

We won't, we won't
We won't stand up, we won't
We won't lift up, we won't
We won't hang on
Side by side
Track Name: Unkind
Unkind

I must've made a wrong turn into heaven
When I saw you standing there
I couldn't believe my eyes
I couldn't believe my heart
When it came undone
What's going on here I never believed
I'd be ok with being so vulnerable
Have I lost my nerve? Have I lost my mind?
Maybe I lost all the things
That make me so unkind

What happened to my loneliness?
What happened to my emptiness?
What happened to my bitterness?
What happened to the nothing
That I never had to risk?
What have you done to me?
Baby, can't you see the power of your charity

I must've made a wrong turn into heaven
When I saw you standing there
I didn't know where I was going
And I, surely didn't care
All those roads looked the same to me
Until I found one double-lane
Have I lost my nerve? Have I lost my mind?
Maybe I lost all the things
That make me so unkind

What happened to my loneliness?
What happened to my emptiness?
What happened to my bitterness?
What happened to the nothing
That I never had to risk?
What have you done to me?
Baby, can't you see the power of your charity
Track Name: Crawl
Crawl

Take my blessings take my licks
Let them make me strong
Keep my head up through the kicks
'Cause it won't be long
Don't know how, don't know when
Just like I've never known before
The best advice I've ever heard was
Get up off the fuckin' floor

Sometimes you gotta crawl
But you better run fast while you can
Quickly dreams turn to regrets
When you wonder what could've been
Sometimes you gotta crawl
But you better run fast while you can
Don't look back with bitter tears
Just to see fear took it from your hands

Take me out with a fist in the air
Before a tail between my legs
I may never get anywhere
But I'll be smiling in the end
Don't know how, don't know when
Just like I've never known before
The best advice I've ever heard was
Get up off the fuckin' floor

Sometimes you gotta crawl
But you better run fast while you can
Quickly dreams turn to regrets
If you wonder what could've been
Sometimes you gotta crawl
But you better run fast while you can
Don't look back with bitter tears
Just to see fear took it from your hands
Track Name: So You Say
So You Say

So you say you want me to hold you
Take away your fears and console you
So you say you want me to kiss you
So deeply like I'll always be with you
So you say you want me to love you
So you say, so you say

Pardon me for my hesitation
I've been too many times forsaken
How much of what you say is true?
How much of what you say is what you do?

How much of what you say
Is what you do?
How much of what you say
Is what you do?

So you say you want me to touch you
All over your body inside your soul
So you say you'll be my woman
From now and until the end of time
So you say you just wanna love me
So you say, so you say

Pardon me for my hesitation
I've been too many times forsaken
How much of what you say is true?
How much of what you say is what you do?

How much of what you say
Is what you do?
How much of what you say
Is what you do?
Track Name: Tie Me Down
Tie Me Down

I've been hung up, let down
Strung out and put down
Tried to be a better man
But I'd never gain no ground
Try to make my heart a rock
But the aching wouldn't stop
Tried to hide my cries and smiles
And then here you come..

Here you come, here you come
Your smile shining like the sun
Feels like the rain is gone
And I've gotta let you know

You can never, ever tie me down
You can only set me, set me free
No, no you can never tie me down
'Cause it's your love that is saving me

So many have tried before
Steal my joy, steal my soul
Put my heart into a jar
Make me something I'll never know
You took me as a friend
You took me as I am
All through the thick and thin
Your love never ends

Here you come, here you come
Your smile shining like the sun
Feels like the rain is gone
And I've gotta let you know

You can never, ever tie me down
You can only set me, set me free
No, no you can never tie me down
'Cause it's your love that is saving me
