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

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

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

Innocent 05:53
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

Side By Side 04:15
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

Unkind 05:23
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

Crawl 03:32
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

So You Say 03:39
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?

Tie Me Down 04:03
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
