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

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

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

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

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

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

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
