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

Matches 02:24
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.

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?

Modern Girl 02:58
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

Hidden Beach 04:01
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

Always 02:50
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
