Stop

length: 3:49

You just walk in, I make you smile
It's cool but
You don't even know me
You take an inch, I run a mile
Can't win you're
Always right behind me
And we know that you could go and find some other
Take or leave it or just don't even bother
Caught in a craze, it's just a phase
Or will this be around forever
Don't you know it's going too fast (ooh, to fast)
Racing so heard you know it won't last (ooh, won't last)
Don't you know why can't you see
Slow it down, read the sign
So you know just where you're going
Stop right now thank you very much
I need somebody with a human touch
Hey you always on the run
Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
Do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do always be together
Ba da ba ba
Ba da ba ba
Ba da ba stay that way forever
And we know that you can go and find some other
Take or leave it cos we've always got each other
You know who you are and yes, you're gonna breakdown
You've crossed the line so you're gonna have to turnaround
Don't you know it's going too fast (ooh, to fast)
Racing so heard you know it won't last (ooh, won't last)
Don't you know why can't you see
Slow it down, read the sign
So you know just where you're going
Stop right now thank you very much
I need somebody with a human touch
Hey you always on the run
Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
Gotta keep it down honey, lay your back on the line
Cos I don't care about the money, don't be wasting my time
You need less speed, get off my case
You gotta slow it down baby, just get out of my face
Stop right now thank you very much
I need somebody with a human touch
Hey you always on the run
Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
Stop right now thank you very much
I need somebody with a human touch
Hey you always on the run
Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
Stop right now thank you very much
(Stop right now)
I need somebody with a human touch
(We wanna thank, we wanna thank you)
Hey you always on the run
(Stop right now)
Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
(Thank you very much, thank you very much)

Please Don’t Do This

You call me in the middle of the night
Saying that you just got home
You're lucky I'm even still awake
Awake enough to answer the phone
But I knew it would be you'cause I was hoping that you'd call
Hoping you'd say that you were sorry
But you don't apologize at all
And it's not ok and it's not alright
What have you been doing with those guys all night?

If they're really just friends
Why wouldn't you choose me over them?
Please don't do this again
I try to give you the space you need
But you end up walking all over me
Please don't do this to me
Oh no, please don't do this to me

You call me in the middle of the night
So drunk you're ready to pass out
Tellin' me you had a great time
Except for that hour you blacked out
Now you're surprised that I'm pissed
You think I'm acting all tough
Well I think you're acting like a *****
And I swear this time I've had enough

Why do you have to push me so hard?
You're pushing me away
I ask, please don't do this to me
But you're doing it anyway

And it's not OK and it's not alright
You can't fool me, so don't even try
And it's not OK and it's not alright
What have you been doing with those guys all night?

What If

length: 2:52
What if nobody likes me
What if I don't succeed
What if I give it all that I got and I still don't got what they need
What if I don't get anywhere at all
Would I consider myself a failure
Would I be that small

What if she doesn't like me
What if I'm not her type
What if all the girls that ever like me are not the kind of girls that I like
What if I meet the right one and screw it up
Would I consider myself a failure
Would I give up

[Chorus]
I'm gonna keep shining denied just makes me want it more
I'll keep shining each time push harder than before
I can't live my life always worried about what if
Cause what if I die tomorrow then I never even lived

What if they don't like me
What if they think I'm a joke
What if they act nice to my face
But they hate me and I don't even know
What if they end up stabbing me in the back
Would I consider myself a failure or would I fight back

[Chorus]

What if nobody likes me
What if I don't succeed
What if I give it all that I got and it's not good enough till I bleed
What if I don't get anywhere at all
Would I consider myself a failure
Would I be that small

No!

[Chorus: x2]

Fireworks

length: 3:26
Well I don't mind waiting 'til you're comfortable with me
But what's it gonna take to prove that I'm for real?
'Cause you know how I feel about you
You know I can't live without you
I just want to stay and make it real

'Cause I know, you know
it can't get much better
Fireworks flyin' whenever we're together
I know, you know, that I know you love me

Well I've made up my mind that I want you to be the one
The one I want to be with when I'm ninety-two

I just want to feel you tonight
making sure the moment's just right
I could die just staring in your eyes
I just want to feel your heartbeat
hold you even closer to me
Fall asleep with you right by my side
We'll see fireworks tonight

I've waited all my life to make this perfect every way
And sharing it with you would make it even more than that
We'll see fireworks tonight

Leavin’

length: 3:45
You're doin' it again, you know
Sometimes I don't even know who you are
And I don't think you know how bad it hurts
'Cause you don't have to see the scars

If you knew how bad you made me feel
You'd never do a thing like this again
But if it's just a game you're playing
I don't think I'll make it to the end

I don't think I'd last that long
Baby, I'm not that strong
So if you care about me you've gotta stop acting this way

Or I'm leavin' today
I'll say goodbye to my favorite face
Don't want to go, but I just can't stay
And be treated, I won't be treated this way

At times I think I love you
And at times I know I've finally found the one
But it's times like this that make me feel
The game of love has only just begun

You know I'd never leave
But making threats to you could be the only way
I love everything about you
But when I'm in doubt then something's gotta change

Shine

length: 5:19
You know it tears me up inside
To see the feelings that you hide
Hide inside that empty bottle
I wish you saw how great you were
I wish you saw what life was worth
You wouldn't have to hide your problems
And I don't care what you might think
I think you've had too much to drink
Can't even talk when you're this way

Run away, run away
But that won't make it any better
Run away, run away
And make tomorrow harder to live than today

There's so much out there you could miss
There's so much life out there to live
If you would just believe in yourself
You know you're better than all of this
You know you've got so much to give
But you're so afraid to give of yourself

There's a bright light shining inside you
It shines out through your eyes
Don't drown it away, don't be afraid, don't hide
Let it shine

You say you're looking for happiness
But when it comes, you run away from it
You tell yourself you don't deserve it
There's not much more that I can do now the rest is up to you
Until you love yourself, you'll never change
You'll keep on running
Until you deal with today

Your Fault

length: 3:48
You had your chance
There's no reason to cry about it now
You changed your plans
Hope that's still more important to you now
No, I don't wanna talk

You better know that this is all your fault
I hope you know that this is all your fault

You can't look back
All that **** doesn't matter anymore
You're way off track

Why do you think about it
Why do you sing about it
Why do you care at all
Man, I don't know what I can say
It's like she can't appreciate me
And it makes me feel so Goddamn small
I try to tell you but I've got no voice
And you won't listen so I have no choice
It's time for you to move on without me
Just don't forget that this is all your fault
All your fault

You can't come back
Things could never be the same as before
Can't have me anymore
You say I'm going nowhere
And that's what makes me keep dreamin'
You wish I would just shut up
And that's what makes me keep screamin'
You tell me to watch my step
Instead I'm falling out of love
I thought you were all that I had
But without you I've got it all

Why do you think about it
Why do you sing about it
Why do you care at all
Man, I don't know what else to say
It's like she can't appreciate the things
She knows will make her feel so tall

Happy Someday

length: 3:20
It's just another old Sunday
a few more hours 'til it's Monday
The weekend's almost over
I feel myself gettin' older
It's becoming more and more apparent
I'm turning out like my parents
I hate going to bed early
But I gotta go work for a man who doesn't know my name
Makes me wear a uniform so everybody looks the same
But I can't be late
I've got those credit card bills I gotta pay

Hey hey hey, I'm gonna be happy someday
Then finally it's Friday
I'm thinkin' life's goin' my way
But there's nothing to do
Guess I'll hang out with my friends
And I know/we'll end up at a show
Where they'll drink away the dreams they gave up long ago
But I can't complain, 'cause I've been right there doin' the same

Someday I'll be happy
will someone tell me when will that be?
Somewhere I lost track of what's right
and now I'm stuck on the sidelines
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
not gonna take it any longer
It's time to take back control of my life

Someday I'll have everything
I'll get paid money just to sing
A new car, and a big house
a few kids running around
I'm gonna marry my girlfriend
and fall in love all over again
Someday I'll have it all

A Lonely September

length: 4:27
I'm sitting here all by myself
Just trying to think of something to do
Trying to think of something anything
Just to keep me from thinking of you
But you know its not working out
Cause your all that's on my mind
One thought of you is all it takes
To leave the rest of the world behind
Oh

I didn't mean for this to go as far as it did
And I didn't mean to get so close
And share what we did
And I didn't mean to fall in love
But I did
And you didn't mean to love me back
But I know you did

I'm sitting here trying to convince myself
That your not the one for me
But the more I think
The less I believe and then the more
I want you here with me
You know the holidays are coming up
I don't want to spend them alone
Memories of x-mas time with you
Just kill me if I'm on my own
Oh

And I didn't mean for this to go as far as it did
And I didn't mean to get so close
And share what we did
And I didn't mean to fall in love
But I did
And you didn't mean to love me back

I know its not the smartest thing to do
We just can't seem to get it right
But what I wouldn't give to have
One more chance tonight
One more chance tonight

I'm sitting her trying to entertain
Myself with this old gutair
But with all my inspiration gone
Its not getting me very far
I look around my room and everything I see
Reminds me of you
Oh please baby won't you take my hand
We got nothing left to prove

I didn't mean for this to go as far as it did
And I didn't mean to get so close
And share what we did
And I didn't mean to fall in love but I did
And you didn't mean to love me back
But I know you did

And I didn't mean to meet you then
When we were just kids
And I didn't mean to give you chills
The way that I kiss
And I didn't mean to fall in love
But I did
And you didn't mean to love me back
But I know you did

Don't say you didn't love me back
Cause you know you did
No you didn't mean to love me back
But you did

Can’t Turn Away

length: 4:30
I can't run, can't turn away now

It's all the same, nothing ever changes
The long days, the ten cent raises
A few bucks in my pocket's gotta go a long way
22, got my whole life ahead of me
But still, lettin' life get the best of me
Gotta stop, and just leave it up to destiny now
I don't know how much more of this I can handle
But I know that good things come to those who wait

I can't run, can't turn away now

Four years, I've been out of high school
Forget college, thinking I was so cool
But no regrets, gotta do what you gotta do
My heart, it's in love with the rock 'n' roll
And playing music is all that I really know
You know love, it's the only thing you can't control

Can't stop believing/no matter how long it takes
It might kill me to keep on dreaming
But I'd rather die than throw it away
I don't know how much more of this I can handle
But I know that good things come to those who wait
And better things will come to those who don't give up
So mine should be coming any day

I can't run, can't turn away now

Penny (Perfect for You)

length: 3:19
What's your car doing outside his house?
It's 3 o'clock in the morning
When you left me you promised there was no one else
At least that was your story
Well ok, I know I'm not perfect
But what makes him so ****ing cool?
He's just another little punk like the rest of them
The kid's just another tool

I guess he's perfect for you
Why are you two alone at his house?
You told me people would be over
Then you lie right to my face
You try to tell me you didn't drive over
Well ok, I know that you're lyin'
I saw your car with my very own eyes
Why would you lie about something so stupid?
Unless you've got something to hide
I think you do

I guess he's perfect for you
Don't try to explain, don't try to deny it
I don't want to hear anymore of your lyin'
I can see the way you talk to him
And that's enough to make me hate the kid
So when you find out that he's a ****, don't come crawling back

Why are you always over at his house?
What the hell do you do there?
You're tellin' me that you don't mess around
And I'm telling you that I really don't care
Well ok, go have your fun
Go out with Penny if it's what you gotta do
But if you tell him that you love him
Make sure he knows that you told me that too
Yeah, you told me that too

I guess he's perfect for you
Thought I was perfect for you
I guess he's perfect for you

Radios in Heaven

length: 5:23
Your time has already come and I don't know why
The last thing that I had heard
You were doin' just fine
It seems like just yesterday
I was laughing with you
Playing games at Grandma's house
Well you taught me well, didn't you?
I hope I'm just like you

Do they have radios in heaven?
I hope they do
'Cause they're playing my song on the radio
And I'm singing it to you

You left before I had a chance to say goodbye
But that's the way life usually is
It just passes you by
But you can't hold on to regrets and you can't look back
So I'll just be thankful for the times that I had with you
I hope I'm just like you

Do they have radios in heaven?
I hope they do
'Cause they're playing my song on the radio
And I'm singing it to you
If they don't have radios in heaven
Here's what I'll do
I can bring my guitar when my time is up and I'll play it for you

Tell me can you hear me now
If not, then I can try to sing real loud
What's it like up on the other side of the clouds?
I hope I'm just like you
I hope I turn out to be as good as you
