Mama Said 04:09
Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight And I don't feel like being good tonight No, I don't feel like being good Everyone on the street is sleeping Everyone else is trying to dream I don't know if there's a reason Things aren't always what they seem Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight And I don't feel like being good tonight No, I don't feel like being good Everyone's moving in the daylight When the world's awake and bright I'd rather take in all this moonlight No matter if it's wrong or right You think you know what's good for me I know me better than you You can shut your eyes to all you see But for me, it's just a little too soon... Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight Mama said nothing good ever happens after midnight And I don't feel like being good tonight No, I don't feel like being good I don't feel like being good

Ready 04:27
There's a light on the in the kitchen, there's a half empty glass of red There's a letter that I wrote you that I know I'm never gonna send I've come to terms with how we left things I'm okay with living with these ghosts I'm looking forward to another chance to love again and just let go I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now There's a new season turning, there's a hillside dusted white There's a lifetime of winters that kept me from burning bright See, I was sleeping when you found me. Eyes closed, unprepared When you awoke in my a fire like a love I never knew I had I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now It's been a long time coming, been a long road driving down Looks like I'm finally getting somewhere, I can finally see the edge of town I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready now

There's a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed When I'm sleeping he goes right to my head, right to my head There's a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed I'm hanging on to every word that he says, every word that he says He won't let me go, he's kinda like a song that I know And the music is everywhere No matter how hard I try There's still a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed There's smoke in my hair, smoke in my hair She's fit to burn, but I don't think she cares, I don't think she cares There's smoke in my hair, smoke in my hair She swirls around me and it's just not fair, no it's just not fair She won't let me go, she's kinda like a song that I know And the music is everywhere No matter how hard I try There's still smoke in my hair, there's still smoke in my hair He won't let me go, he's kinda like a song that I know And the music is everywhere No matter how hard I try There's still a ghost in my bed, a ghost in my bed

Lately I've been circling 'round the idea of giving up What's the point of hanging on if what I've got's not enough Eyes on the floor I let go sigh after sigh And I don't know which way is right, no I don't know which way is right Is this six ton weight just in my head Or is the elephant in the room, unsaid This conversation seems to have only side And I don't know if we're gonna be alright, no I don't know if we're gonna be alright Despite all the times I let the night into my head You haven't figured out how to love me when I'm sad But to be fair neither have I And I don't know how hard to fight, no I don't know how hard to fight

Now it comes down to this, your back’s against the wall Why would you take such a risk, aren’t you afraid you might fall? Don’t be so hard on yourself, it’s not so easily done I’ll keep you here with me, I’ll keep you under my thumb Let me go I won’t stay here with you I need something else, something true Like poison, I’ll draw you from the wound you’re a curse I must lift, I have been such a fool And you say we’re the same, but… You don’t even know my mind You never took the time I’m better off without you anyway What we had was just a dream A hoax, a made-up scheme It wasn’t you and me anyway And if it was.. Black and white, I could pick a side And it would be easy, and I would be alright When I don’t know which way to go I’m gonna lean, I’m gonna lean Toward the devil that I know The devil I know has always kept me The devil I know, he won’t let me, he won’t let me go And now I’ve had enough I think I’ll call this bluff, and I will take what’s left and start again And I won’t be afraid of this life I won’t close my eyes this time And I won’t make the same mistakes and if it was… Black and white, I could pick a side And it would be easy, and I would be alright When I don’t know which way to go I’m gonna lean, I’m gonna lean I’m gonna lean, I’m gonna lean Toward the devil that I know

Thundercloud 03:41
Thundercloud Oh how I've missed you The winter has been so long Thundercloud Oh how I want you You spark and you light up my dark Thundercloud Oh how I need you I like having you around Won't you stay Won't you stay Thundercloud

No Good 03:55
I'm no good at silly games I'm showing my hand again You can see it on my face If you catch my eyes they're gonna tell you the truth And odds are I'll fall for you and we're guaranteed to lose Let's face it Let's face it Baby, I'm no good I'm no good at being good It's like I don't even try sometimes Although I probably could No I can't be contained, I can't just do as I'm told And you can try to ignore it 'til there's nowhere left to go Let's face it Let's face it Baby, I'm no good I'm no good, I'm no good, I'm no good, I'm no good, oh For you For you
8.
A house in the valley Where summer never ends You, standing beside me Our love and the mountains to tend This is what my heart wants, my heart This is what my heart wants, my heart The air blue with night A shadow falls on the day Twilight seems to feel right When there’s music aching to play This is what my heart wants, my heart This is what my heart wants, my heart Drive on through the hillside You’ve been on my mind There’s still a lot that I don’t know Oh, but I know This is what my heart wants, my heart This is what my heart wants, my heart You are all that my heart wants, my heart You are all that my heart wants, my heart

Bluebird 03:38
I don't know nobody that can love me like you do I don't know nobody baby that can love me like you do Love me like you do, love me like you do, love me like you I don't want nobody like the way that I want you I don't want nobody baby like the way that I want you The way that I want you, the way that I want you, the way that I When the bluebird sings this is how it goes Don't you go on and lie to me baby 'cuz I already know You ain't got nobody that knows you like I do You ain't got nobody baby that knows you like I do Knows you like I do, knows you like I do, nobody knows you Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do Love me, ba-ba-ba-baby love me like you do
10.
I can't make you want this like I want this, like I need this, no There's gotta be a better way to navigate your selfishness 'Cuz I gotta get through this, oh What I'm doing is not working What I'm doing now is no working out I've been too careless with my wishing, now I'm wishing we could start again, oh There's gotta be a better way to get everything I'm dreaming of Just a little bit of what I want, oh What I'm doing is not working What I'm doing now is no working out Sooner or later, one of us has gotta give in and I swear to god It's not gonna be me So take it or leave it, love me or leave me, oh What I'm doing is not working What I'm doing now is no working out

Sink or Swim 05:13
Running fast, beating hard, heading past the last safe place we've known No light to guide, the night so dark, nowhere to rest, nowhere to call our home It comes down to sink or swim, sink or swim, sink or swim, love Unprepared, what lies ahead, just holding on to what we have for tonight Sometimes it's better to let go but I can't justify defeat in this fight We're gonna sink or swim, sink or swim, sink or swim, love And when it all comes down Pray we will not be found Will we weather this hand in hand And start again Somewhere along the way Decisions must be made Sink or swim, sink or swim, sink or swim, love And when it all comes down Pray we will not be found We will weather this hand in hand And start again

Don’t know what’s worse Being so down I could cry or not having anybody on my side Don’t know what’s worse Missing you now that you’re gone or the grief from what I said when you were around Any day now, I’m gonna make up my mind...ohhhh Don't know what's worse Sticking around-- eyes on the door or never knowing just what it is I'm waiting for Don’t know what’s worse Giving up on us or fighting this war that we both know we’ve lost Because what doesn’t kill me still hurts a lot....ohhhhh Look in the mirror, your regret is all you know But it’s just the fear in you...don’t look back now, just let go Don’t know what’s worse Don’t believe I’ll ever know...But I’m not holding on, I’m letting go Don’t know what’s worse But these days are growing short... And I won’t sit around, wonderin’ what it was all for And if you will forgive me, then I’ll forgive you...ohhhh

Why doesn't anyone stick around? Am I so easy to leave? Did you stop loving me? I'd like to know What else can I do tonight than wonder why you had to go Was there a better way to love you? How could I know? I'll be the last one standing when the storm comes through When it looks like I can't care anymore than I already do Why doesn't anyone stick around? Am I so easy to leave? Did you stop loving me? I'd like to know I'll be the last one standing when the storm comes through When it looks like I can't care anymore than I already do Why doesn't anyone stick around? Am I so easy to leave? Did you stop loving me? I'd like to know Am I so easy to leave? Did you stop loving me? I'd like to know
