Should've Gone to Bed

length: 3:19
I only miss you at midnight
But when that lonely clock strikes
That's when I wish you were here
The angel knows it's not right
But the devil's in my heart tonight
Whispering things in my ear

So I down my cup
And then I hit you up
Saying stupid stuff

Oh, I should've just gone to bed
I should've never called you
I should've listened to my head
When it said leave it alone
No, a few drinks in
Here I go missing you again
God only knows what I said
I should've just gone to bed

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I should've just gone to bed

All day long I'm over you
Never really think of you
I keep you out of my head
But some nights when I'm striking out
You're all I can think about
Just gotta have you again

So I down my cup
And then I hit you up
Saying way too much

Oh, I should've just gone to bed
I should've never called you
I should've listened to my head
When it said leave it alone
No, a few drinks in
Here I go missing you again
God only knows what I said
I should've just gone to bed

I should've turned the lights out
I should've called it a night
You should've never picked up my phone call
If you're not sleeping here tonight

I should've just gone to bed
I should've never called you
I should've listened to my head
When it said leave it

I should've just gone to bed
I should've never called you
I should've listened to my head
When it said leave it alone
No, a few drinks in
Here I go missing you again
God only knows what I said
I should've just gone to bed

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I should've just gone to bed

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I should've gone to bed

The Giving Tree

length: 3:02
All the leaves on the giving tree have fallen
No shade to crawl in underneath
I got scars from a pocket knife
Where you carved your heart into me

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

I lie in the dead of night and I wonder
Whose covers you're between
And it's sad laying in his bed
You feel hollow, so you crawl home back to me

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

Well, I see a trail that starts
A line of broken hearts behind you
That lead you back to me
The once sad and lonely fool
With nothing left but roots to show, oh

If all you wanted was love
Why would you use me up
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

Helium

length: 3:19
Here I am waiting, taking every chance I'm given
Feeling more and more alive with every note I'm singing

I do all I do until I can't go on
I put all I do into the sun

So when the day comes that I don't wake up
I'll float away, full of love, like helium
From heaven I won't worry
'Cause I left behind one hell of a story
Float away, full of love, like helium
From heaven I won't worry
'Cause I left behind one hell of a story

When I walk I walk until my shoes are torn and tattered
For my love I'll fight until my body's bruised and battered
That's all that matters

I do all I do until I can't go on
I put all I do into the sun

So when the day comes that I don't wake up
I'll float away, full of love, like helium
From heaven I won't worry
'Cause I left behind one hell of a story
Float away, full of love, like helium
From heaven I won't worry
'Cause I left behind one hell of a story

Open your eyes and soak it up
This life ain't long enough
So love all that you can
I'm rising up, I'm rising up

So when the day comes that I don't wake up
I'll float away, full of love, like helium
From heaven I won't worry
'Cause I left behind one hell of a story
Float away, full of love, like helium
From heaven I won't worry
'Cause I left behind one hell of a story
I left behind one hell of a story

Haven't Told Her

length: 3:58
She hit me like a blinding light and I was born
And gravity won't keep my feet down anymore
If you've seen her then you'd understand

An angel in my, the way she moves
She could make your heart beat faster than you knew
She's got a smile that can shake you, vibe that can break you
Eyes that can bring the heat
But there's just one thing that I haven't told her

I know I love her but I'm tongue tied
I wanna wait until the moment's right
I don't wanna lose her
(There's just one thing that I haven't told her)

Well, I've been holding back so much I'm in reverse
And buying her that drugstore diamond made it worse
Like the silver on her skin stood for something; a promise

I don't wanna burn out quick if she's the one
Like the fire in between a bullet and the gun
Because she's brighter than Vegas, hotter than Hades
Cool enough to make you freeze
But there's just one thing that I haven't told her

I know I love her but I'm tongue tied
I wanna wait until the moment's right
I don't wanna lose her
(But there's just one thing that I haven't told her)
She's got me higher than a satellite
She makes everything all right
I don't wanna lose her
But there's just one thing that I haven't told her

Do you know what you do to me?
I've been captured, waiting for the rapture
Am I just a fool to believe this is it, this is it?

So tell me that you feel the same
Can we say what we wanna say?
'Cause there's just one thing that I haven't told her

I know I love her but I'm tongue tied
I wanna wait until the moment's right
I don't wanna lose her
(But there's just one thing that I haven't told her)
She's got me higher than a satellite
She makes everything all right
But I don't wanna lose her
(But there's just one thing that I haven't told her)

She hit me like a blinding light and I was born
