Sister 04:58
What did you expect of this Oh my sister Oh my friend You have left me once again But I don’t blame you for it It’s your need for it all The fierceness of the cold Its the way that you could think that it was easy Not at all Try and hide your misery In a crowd of company But I see you falling apart Held together by a plastic card Say it’s me you won’t forgive Say you’ve nothing left to live for Say I stabbed you in the back Oh but you don’t believe it’s that Because you stabbed me in the heart And that was the hardest part And baby you know I ain’t ever giving up on this Because I need you and I want to be there for you when you need me too Just forget this and Just give it up Even though it’s not what we both want Because I know you and I’m here til the end You’re my sister, you’re my friend Because I need you and I want to be there for you when you need me too Just forget this and Just give it up Even though it’s not what we both want Because I know you and I’m here til the end You’re my sister, you’re my friend

And I swear It’s like a kink in a hose Shake it loose and there she goes There she goes See a penny pick it up Hope you’re ready to count your blessings No you’re never gonna find what you’re looking for ‘Cause it’ll never be as good as it was before I tell you And she falls back again Asking herself where you been And I swear she’s been thinking of you And wondering where the time flew Oh what can you do See a penny pick it up Hope you’re ready to count your blessings No you’re never gonna find what you’re looking for ‘Cause it’ll never be as good as it was before I tell you And she falls back again Asking herself where you been

I will hold my back against Every wall you’ll have come caving in If you’ll have me Wash my hair still all I smell is you When you feel it I can feel it too I feel it all the time Feel it all the time Feel it all the time Take it or leave it all lying here on the floor Watching me give you all you ever needed and more Take it or Leave it all Take it or Leave it all Don’t make it easy on me I can handle it Underneath the strawberry skies Your eyes could (cut) Me a little deeper Feel it all the time

Well I’m taking you for a ride again Well I’m taking you for a ride Well the difference is in a dime and you’ll be fine Just another brick in the load that I’ve been carting around just so That I could get back to a place I thought that I’d be content Did you know what I meant? When I told you that you didn’t really want what you told me that you really needed I give you one thing You flip it backwards Well that’s just your thing Maybe it’s your curse It’s gonna let you down Well I thought I had it figured out But I couldn’t have been more wrong about The way you would handle it You’ve been looking at it all wrong I know But I kept bringing you along because I’m more scared of you than you are of me And I let you win When you told me that I didn’t really want What I told you that I really needed I give you one thing You flip it backwards Well that’s just your thing Maybe it’s your curse It’s gonna let you down

Felt 04:27 video
Made such a mess of this Such a mess if this it might never come out But I left it there as if I wanted you to go ahead and take it Now I’m sitting here blaming you You just wanted some attention How was I supposed to feel for you How was I supposed to see you If I’m not there You know as I know I just wanted to ignore it Have you lying across my bed at night With covers pulled over my eyes You can’t tell me it wasn’t just a bit surprising How was I supposed to feel for you How was I supposed to see you If I’m not there You know as I do I’ll eventually forgive you Like I always do Like I always do How was I supposed to feel for you How was I supposed to see you If I’m not there

Scared 04:22
Sometimes I can’t say what I mean Sometimes you don’t mean anything by the way you’re looking at me Its in my head In my head In my head In my head Maybe I’m scared beyond me Maybe I’m scared Beyond me maybe I’m scared No not always not all the time It’s like we couldn’t even find the tips of our own tongues Its in my head In my head In my head In my head Maybe I’m scared beyond me Maybe I’m scared Beyond me maybe I’m scared Maybe I’m scared Maybe I’m scared Maybe I’m scared

I'm With You 03:35
You say you want to leave Lets get out of here You say you just can’t stand the way you’ve been feeling So tell me where you want to go and I’ll go too I’m with you Fitting our steps right into the other Taking just one then having another Unbeatable Nothing I’d give for this I pressed my body so close to yours The universe herself couldn’t have torn us apart Written in her stars Well isn’t this all so funny how Oh wouldn’t you just look at me now I’m swimming in a sea of all I thought I’d been terrified of You say you want to leave lets get out of here You say you just can’t stand the way you’ve been feeling So tell me where you want to go and I’ll go too I’m with you The warmth in your hand and the promise within it Finding its way down my back in a minute I’m nothing but a shell of myself Keeping up with something else I never knew

Haunting 04:33
I sometimes see you in my dreams I can’t help but think you’re haunting me I sometimes see you after dark and I make some snide remark I can’t help my broken heart The pit of my stomach Where it hurts the most I have no room to talk I just wish I hadn’t let you walk away Let you walk away Because I hate myself a little more every day Don’t read into it all I told myself I’d take the fall Oh but I could have warned you I sink a little deeper Sink a little deeper every day I sometimes see you in my dreams I can’t help but think you’re haunting me

Too Far Gone 03:00
Didn’t want to hear it No more than you wanted to say it We had our reasons Played it off like it was just one of those things We’d get by Oh but darling, it was too far gone Two young kids who had it good American dreaming Graduate and build a house and have some kids We’ll figure it out You never had your head on a pillow that wasn’t given to you by the hand who fed you If you could do it all over again I know we’d go back and know better than to Fire all at once Grab ‘em once you got ‘em like your daddy always told you so I think I’m better now At least I’m trying not to think about all that’s been done Oh but how
