Track Name: I lied to you
I lied to you, baby, but you gotta understand
If you'll hear me out I will tell you who I am
I'm not as strong as you think, but I've got a plan
If you wanna shut me up, just take me by the hand

I'm as kind and nice as an evening breeze
But when the storm blows in it still sweeps me off my feet
And maybe not much matters 'til it matters to me
But you're the only one who can put me at east

So come on, give me a reason
Come on, give me a sign
Come on, tell me you love me, tell me that you'll be mine

I'm a stubborn fool, you know it's true
When I'm back against a wall I don't know what to do
And you spin me around, you make me blue
But you're the only one that can pull me through

So come on, give me a reason
Come on, give me a sign
Come on, tell me you love me, tell me that you'll be mine

I lied to you, baby, but you gotta understand
It don't mean nothing, that's not what I am
I might let you down, but you know that I can
Make it up to you, yeah, again and again

So come on, give me a reason
Come on, give me a sign
Come on, tell me you love me, tell me that you'll . . .

Come on, give me a reason
Come on, give me a sign
Come on, tell me you love me, tell me that you'll be mine
Track Name: Got a Feeling
Got a feeling that you've been missing me
I don't know what you want me to be
I'm not the same as I was before

Two kids just playing at a game of love
Who knows what to do when things get rough
I back away, I cut and run

But if you will try, then I will try

Got a feeling that you've been missing me
And all of the things that I tried to be
Like confident, and free

Did you lose yourself, like me, somewhere
I've recovered a little bit here and there
it's still a life in disrepair

But if you will try, then I will try
To get it right, oh this time, all night
Let's get it right, oooh, let's get it right, all night

Got a feeling that we were meant to be
And it seems like everyone can see
Except maybe you and me

Maybe it was timing, maybe fate
Maybe we were just too young to wait
For love to grow and vindicate

But if you will try, then I will try
To get it right, oh this time, all night
Let's get it right, oooh, let's get it right, all night
Track Name: Good to be alone
Ain't it good to be alone
Nobody by your side
Ain't it good to have a friend you can talk to
Once in a while

Ain't it good to have a love
Even far away
You can talk about the good times, the bad times
The future is here to stay

Ain't it good to have a home
I can make ready for two
Clean out my dresser, make room on the shelves
And open my heart to you

Ain't it good to have someone
Looking out for me
Make it less about myself, getting through all alone
Like it used to be

Well sometimes life, it brings you down
When all that you need is someone to stick around
If you stay by my side, you know I'll stick with you
For good times and bad, oh say, we'll make it through

Ain't it good to have a hope
There's a better day
For two lonely souls on a long road to find each other someday

Ain't it good to know, even though you're sad
It's okay to want a good life, a calm life
The one you never had

Well sometimes life, it brings you down
When all that you need is someone to stick around
If you stay by my side, you know I'll stick with you
For good times and bad, oh say, we'll make it through
Track Name: Johnny tell me
Johnny tell me what's on your mind
Seasons changing right on time
Summer's fading, nights are cold
Will you stay now, or will you go

Johnny you've been here and gone
Do you wonder if we belong
You lift me up, then you bring me down
I'm getting tired of this merry-go-round

But I guess hearts in love just can't say goodbye
And the "meant to be" is gleaming in our eyes
But the "never will" is creeping up behind
Oh Johnny, won't you say what's on your mind

It's complicated, to say the least
If we both stay here, we must agree
That there's a reason, more than a rhyme
Johnny tell me that we've got time

But I guess hearts in love just can't say goodbye
And the "meant to be" is gleaming in our eyes
But the "never will" is creeping up behind
Oh Johnny, won't you say what's on your mind
Track Name: White Flag
One hundred horses couldn't drag us down
Another message from the underground
And if you follow, gonna bring this home
You never notice when you're on your own

But it's a cold world, whoever think we'd get this far
And it's a white flag, surrendering a broken heart

One hundred voices never made a sound
They're getting used to being kicked around
And everybody's gotta tow that line
You never notice when you're out of time

But it's a cold world, whoever think we'd get this far
And it's a white flag, surrendering a broken heart

Oh, fire in the hole
Pick up the pace, boy
'Cause running's the only thing you know

One hundred horses couldn't drag us down
A secret message from the underground

But it's a cold world, whoever think we'd get this far
And it's a white flag, surrendering a broken heart
Track Name: Calling you out
Did you write it in pencil, just to let it go
Erase all the loneliness, it was starting to overflow
It seeped in to the good times, it got under your skin
Filled up all the spaces you'd left
For the good times that might have been

I'm calling you out, calling you out
You gotta leave it on the page
I'm calling you out, calling you out
I've gotta reach you some way

When did I lose you, was it a slow decline
Starting out with the drugs and the whiskey
And ending with compromise

I'm calling you out, calling you out
You gotta leave it on the page
I'm calling you out, calling you out
I've gotta reach you some way

Did you write it in pencil, just to let it go
Write it down and then tear it up and then move on

I'm calling you out, calling you out
You gotta leave it on the page
I'm calling you out, calling you out
I've gotta reach you some way
Track Name: Lucky
Goddamnit, you're a hard man to know
But I'm not one to let it show
If I lead the way, would you follow

Yes I heard everything that you said
But I like sleeping in your bed
And I'm not gonna run away again

So come with me baby, come with me baby
Won't you try a little harder and we'll make it if we're lucky

I'll say it again if I'm not making it clear
You should know what you're into here
Sure enough in time I will break your heart

And that ain't something that can easily mend
Like a hangover from a bottle of gin
It's a losing bet, but you could take a chance on me

So come with me baby, come with me baby
Won't you try a little harder and we'll make it if we're lucky

This place just feeds on fear
Let's get the hell out of here
Every highway leads real far from this small town

And we've got to get away just to figure this out
I'm a complicated woman, you're a man with doubts
But I'm not gonna run away again

So come with me baby, come with me baby
Won't you try a little harder and we'll make it if we're lucky
