Track Name: Arrows
Stop right there
It's been awhile,
Since I've walked on my own
Love is a dare,
And I'd be lyin, if I said I was brave enough
To have another go

Some may say that if you
Step out the way, you're only
Shooting yourself from behind
But I've seen it all and I know
Cupid, you're my downfall

Some say arrows
Point you where you oughtta go, and
Some say the sharper the better
But baby I don't know 'cause,
I've been hit, I've been hurt
I've been kissed, I've been burned
By arrows

Share of the lion
Bit off more than you could chew
When you said you loved me
And 365 days and I'm finally
Realizing I'm too good for you
Too goody two shoes

But if I tried to outrun
The feelings I had felt
I'd never learn the hard way from you
I hope that you're happy
Now you'll never have me
But I was yours to lose

Some say arrows
Point you where you oughtta go, and
Some say the sharper the better
But baby I don't know 'cause,
I've been hit, I've been hurt
I've been kissed, I've been burned
By arrows
Track Name: Love Me
Oh, so this is how
How we take it slow
One step at a time

And oh, so this is how
How we get to know
The rhythm of the lines
In our minds

Ooo, crawling to the tip of my tongue
Ooo, swallowing words I've never really sung

Love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do
So love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do

Cause if you say that you love me, oh
I'm gonna answer you
So love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do

Something in the way
In the way we change, every day
Growing in the light

Makes me wanna fall
Fall and break it all, learn to crawl
With you by my side
In my mind

Ooo, standing on the peaks of my teeth
Ooo, looking out across the words I'm scared to speak

Love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do
So love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do

Cause if you say that you love me, oh
I'm gonna answer you
So love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do

Oh cause I've been tryin' to keep my thoughts low
But you know, that I can hardly keep 'em locked so

Love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do
So love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do
Cause if you say that you love me, oh I'm gonna answer you
So love me, love me, ooo
Tell me that you do
Track Name: Patience
Silence
Why can’t you find me
‘Cause I want you badly
With me, under the sheets

And patience,
where are you hiding
‘Cause I want you
Biting my tongue
And singing me off to sleep

Maybe I’ve lost all my senses though
Maybe they’re under my bed back home
Lately my mind’s just ahead of the ground I hold

Push back ‘n take your time
Or it’ll take you, and you won’t like
Waking up one night, it’s over ‘n you’re beggin’
Pretty please, won't you lower your speed
Ya still got growin’ up to do

Moments,
Rising and falling
Someone is calling
But conversation’s brief

And figures,
Shift in the sunlight
But never look quite right to me,
They’re just empty, it seems that I’ve

Lost all my senses though
Maybe they wandered off long ago
Lately I’m here and I’m there, and they tell me so

Push back ‘n take your time
Or it’ll take you, and you won’t like
Waking up one night, it’s over ‘n you’re beggin’
Pretty please, won't you lower your speed
Ya still got growin’ up to do

Ever so slowly
We will let go
To yesterday’s hurtings
Tomorrow’s unknowns

And they say, that it’s fast
When you’re up there, lookin’ back
It’s the spring in the breeze
And the lilacs on the trees, all too sweet to last

Push back ‘n take your time
Or it’ll take you, and you won’t like
Waking up one night, it’s over ‘n you’re beggin’
Pretty please, wontcha lower your speed
And try to breathe

Push back ‘n take your time
Or it’ll take you, and you won’t like
Waking up one night, it’s over ‘n you’re beggin’
Pretty please, won't you lower your speed
And try to breathe
You know you still got growin’ up to do

Patience,
Why can’t you find me
I want you badly
Singing me off to sleep
Track Name: Megaphone
You threw away my phone
Number, yeah you said you needed to go home
Keep it under, but I know you
I know you’re scared to be alone

You packed it up and took a plane
Out west, you listened to the music we would play
Undressed, but boy I know you
Your heart is like megaphone
(and echoes)

Ooo, I’m talkin’ to you (and echoes)
Ooo, no no no (and echoes)
Ooo, I'm talkin' to you (and echoes)
Ooo, no I won't let you go

I hear you ride a motor car
Round, round, you got an engine and you let her roar
Round town, but boy I know you
You’re revving for an open door

So when you wanna talk, talk it out
I’m here, because I loved you then, I love you now
Don’t fear, ya know I know you
Are stronger than you’re given credit for
(So baby)

Ooo, I’m talkin’ to you (and echoes)
Ooo, no no no (no I won't let you go)
Ooo, I'm talkin' to you (and echoes)
Ooo, no I won't let you go (no I won't let you go)

See me
I want to show you (ah-oo)
Believe me
I want to get to know you (oo)

See me
I want to show you (ah-oo)
Believe me
I want to get to know you (oo)

Ooo
I’m talkin’ to you
And echoes ooo

Ooo, I’m talkin’ to you (and echoes)
Ooo, no no no (No I won't let you go
Ooo, I'm talkin' to you (and echoes)
Ooo, no I won't let you go (No I won't let you go)

No I won't let you go
No I won't let you go
No I won't let you go
Track Name: Last Forever
Hold, steady as a stone in need
Oh, something’s comin’ over me
Hush, quiet as the song recedes
More teeth marks on my tongue

If you could read my mind
Peeking over my shoulder
Would you say it was done
When the story was over

Never paraded my heart around
Opened up and laid it down
No don’t go, and leave me in a mess
Goes to show, I need you I confess
Hold my hand, and tell me this will last forever

Maybe I should turn and run
Mom, says you’re just another one
Poor me, wishin’ we could only be
Seen on a cinema screen

If you could read my mind
Peeking over my shoulder
Would you say it was done
When the story was over

Never paraded my heart around
Opened up and laid it down
No don’t go and leave me in a mess
Goes to show I need you I confess
Hold my hand, and tell me this will last forever

Would you turn the page
Of my paper cage
Could you stand and walk away
from every line I ever wrote to you
but never spoke to you

If you could read my mind
Peeking over my shoulder
Would you say it was done
When the story was over

Never paraded my heart around
Opened up and laid it down
No don’t go and leave me in a mess
Goes to show I need you I confess
Hold my hand, and tell me this will last forever
Track Name: Baby (I Know)
I know that you’ve got a reason to be
how you are in everything you do
I know that you’ve been a-itching to hurt
someone else the way-she-hurt-you

But dont'cha know it’s getting old
Keeping me on hold
‘Til you need someone
You know I keep you on the ground
Never let you down

Baby, I know I know I know
That she hurt you bad
I know I know I know that
That you’re feelin’ jet lag on your heart
Sleep it off, it won’t be too long

Baby, I know I know I know
You’re feelin’ miles away
I wanna let you know that you’re better off
Lettin’ her fly away, in an aer-o-plane

I know that you’ve been sittin’
by the telephone awaiting her call (but she won't call you back)
‘n it’s a sad sight baby
to see you sit and stare at the wall (ooo)

But dont'cha know I feel it too
As the one you choose
When you need someone
I keep you on the ground
Never let you down

Baby, I know I know I know
That she hurt you bad
I know I know I know that
That you’re feelin’ jet lag on your heart
Sleep it off, it won’t be too long

Baby, I know I know I know
You’re feelin’ miles away
I wanna let you know that you’re better off
Lettin’ her fly away, in an aer-o-plane

Come back!
Dont’cha leave me standing on the tarmac, baby
Come back, to me…

Come back!
Don’cha run away down the tarmac, baby
Come back, to me..
