Track Name: I'm Not in Love
Tongue Tied
but I can't hold it inside
burning through my eyes
I won't say goodbye
I'll wait for the rain so you'll never see
The tears I cried so secretly

Dead weight
my knees are starting to shake
these lungs will suffocate
going blue in the face
I'll run through the rain so you'll never see
the heartache catching up to me

I'm not in love
No I'm not in love
I'm not in love
Anymore

First glance
I know there isn't a chance
you put me in a trance
but I know we just can't
I'll wait for the rain so you'll never see
The tears I cried so secretly

It's unfair
my hearts in need of repair
but you're so unaware
of my constant despair
I'll run through the rain so you'll never see
the heartache catching up to me

I'll never be the one to make you smile

Tongue Tied
but I can't hold it inside
burning through my eyes
I won't say goodbye
I'll run through the rain so you'll never see
the heartache catching up to me
Track Name: Matches
Oh my love release me from your spell
You captivate me more than I could ever tell
when your hand rests on my knee
my thoughts are left unsaid
so I beg you please my love,
quit messing with my head

Oh my love you've tied me up in knots
untangle me from my silly little thoughts
when you set your sights on me
I might as well be dead
cause my heart ceases to beat
when you're messing with my head

All my friends they say you're bad for me
but I can never learn
I keep playing with my matches
even when you leave me burned

I knew my love you'd leave me in the end
I'm cracked and broken back
farther than I bend
all I do is waste my life
living in pretend
so my heart ceases to beat
but I can't admit defeat
so I beg you please my love,
quit messing with my head.
Track Name: Cross My Heart
Bet you're gonna stay out tonight
drinking whisky 'till you feel alright
Forget who I am, erase me if you can

Caught you talking to her again
acting like she's your girlfriend
Cross my heart and hope to die
one of these days I'll make you mine

will. you. will. you. will. you. will. you.
will. you. will. you. be mine?

You left me burnt
but I don't mind
I'm only hurt if you're satisfied
She don't know you, quite the way I do

Blur the lines on love and lust
tracing our names in the dust
Cross my heart and hope to die
one of these day's I'll make you mine


will. you. will. you. will. you. will. you.
will. you. will. you. be mine?
tonight

you. will. you. will. you. will. you.
will. you. will. you. be mine?
Track Name: Modern Girl
Patti Smith
and reruns of Urban Myths
She's often wrong but says she's right
I wonder where she goes at night
neon hair
cuz her step-mom doesn't care

ooh ooh
My modern girl

Magazines
protecting her while she sleeps
we're just friends but I want more
I'll meet you by the record store
She likes to swear
I'd follow her anywhere

ooh ooh
My modern girl

She carves her name
into my window pane
knuckles white behind the wheel
I'll never tell her how I feel
Cursive lines
spell out another guy
but you're my modern girl
you're my modern girl
Track Name: Hidden Beach
Let's you and I
spend the 4th of July
planning our lives by the shore

Blankets spread out
waterbottles with wine
we don't need anything more

red shorts. black tees. late day plans.
landlocked worries, buried beneath the sand

Shallow girls laugh
wading into the deep
nervously follow along

Hollow boys dance
to the radio beat
pretending that there's nothing wrong

red shorts. black tees. late day plans.
will you catch me? drifting away from land
Track Name: Always
Your cigarette
lit the feelings I've been trying to smother
and you stole my breath
before I had a chance to recover

So if it's true
I'm not for you
Could my scars heal up someday?
These hearts were made
for this to fade
but what if it's always?

I should have known
that we would never end up together
Leave me alone
so I can try to find someone better

You still said no
but I can't let go
I'll live my life ashamed
Until the day
I'm not afraid
that I'll love you always

No one ever knows my heartache
No one ever feels my world shake
No one ever dries the tears I'm afraid to cry

So call out my name
and you know that I'll come running after
I'll play your sick games though you
treat me like I don't even matter

I hope you choke
on the false hopes
you fed me all the same
but I'll stay near
to make it clear
I'm here from you always
