Track Name: Skip A Beat (Everything's Alright)
I'm stuck in place; I cannot seem to get my feet up off the ground.
I'm wide awake; my eyes are open but I cannot make a sound -
'cause I'm with you.

I lay you down, but I still don't know how to say
I need you now - more than anything.

So I'll take my time on you; I want to waste my time on you.
I want to take my time with you; I want to waste my time with you.

'Cause every time I'm with you, everything's alright.
And every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.

I lay in bed; the ceiling fan mimics the thoughts inside my head.
Is it bad that I keep repeating every word you said?

I wanna take my time on you; I want to waste my time on you.
I want to take my time with you; I want to waste my time with you.

'Cause every time I'm with you, everything's alright.
And every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.
And every time I'm with you I know I will be fine;
and every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.

And it's alright; everything's alright.
Everything's alright; everything's alright.

Every time I'm with you, everything's alright.
Every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.
And every time I'm with you, I know I will be fine.
Every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.

'Cause every time I'm with you, everything's alright.
And every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.
And every time I'm with you, I know I will be fine.
And every time I see you, my heart skips a beat.

And it's alright; everything's alright.
Everything's alright; everything's alright.
Track Name: Bottle Rocket Romance
I can't find the motivation; I'm wandering around the world.
You left me and I'm still waiting; I feel like a ghost on the dance floor.
Over - it's over, and I can't remember why I believed you cared.

If I say I miss you I'm lying; just a warning, oh, love.
It makes no difference if you listen or ignore me -
somehow I can't get enough.

You say I'm a walking disaster - that I'm in too deep for an S.O.S.
Over - it's over, and I can't remember why I believed you cared -
Why I tried my best.

If I say I miss you I'm lying; just a warning, oh, love.
It makes no difference if you listen or ignore me -
somehow I can't get enough

When will I realize this bottle rocket ride isn't really working out?
I've come too far to fake it - somehow I've got to take it.
I'm my own worst enemy.
Know your enemy.

If I say I miss you I'm lying; just a warning, oh, love.
It makes no difference if you listen or ignore me -
somehow I can't get enough.

If I say I miss you I'm lying; just a warning, oh, love.
It makes no difference if you listen or ignore me -
somehow I can't get enough.
Track Name: Sentimental
I don't think you've ever known who I am, but I will have you know
that I practice my 'hello's to the ceiling fan.

I think I've caught your eye once or twice, and I will have you know
that I think of you and I can't fall asleep at night -
do you think of me when you're up at night?
Do you think of, do you think of...

'Cause I'm so sentimental -
I keep track of all the little things, the little things.
And I'm still stuck on every word you say to me;
I'm slightly mental - sentimental.

It wouldn't make a difference now; even still I guess I'll have you know
when you're on my mind, I just can't seem to think at all.

I think I've caught your eye once or twice, and I will have you know
that I think of you and I can't fall asleep at night.
Do you think of me when you're up at night?
Do you think of, do you think of...

'Cause I'm so sentimental -
I keep track of all the little things, the little things.
And I'm still stuck on every word you say to me;
I'm slightly mental - sentimental

So far I've - so far I've slept alone.
But, oh, if you'd, oh, if you'd only known
how far I've fallen in love, 'cause I've fallen in love -
yes, I'm falling apart for you.
But you don't even know my name.
So how could you feel the same?

'Cause I'm so sentimental -
I keep track of all the little things, the little things.
And I'm still stuck on every word you say to me;
I'm slightly mental - sentimental;

And I'm so sentimental -
I keep track of all the little things, the little things.
And I'm still stuck on every word you say to me.
Track Name: Poison
I see your silver smile, and I'm left open.
Haven't seen you for a while, and I think it's showing.
I can't turn away, like I did back then -
I thought I turned the page, and now here I am.

Wouldn't say I'm in denial, 'cause I know I'm broken.
Everywhere that you go, I'll - I just keep hoping
you'll come back to me, with your silver smile.
Oh, it's so hard to breathe - don't have to wonder why.

My heart's racing, thoughts circle in my head.
I can't take this, but I don't wanna say goodbye -

You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.
You're a poison, but you bring me back to life.
My pulse is freaking out - my tongue is twisted and dry.
You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.

You've got a bitter aftertaste, and I think I like it.
You're a poison, and I can't wait; I'm so excited.
I can't turn away, like I did back then.
Oh, I thought I turned the page - now here I am.

My heart's racing, thoughts circle in my head.
I can't take this, but I don't wanna say goodbye -

You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.
You're a poison, but you bring me back to life.
My pulse is freaking out - my tongue is twisted and dry.
You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.

And I think when I'm gone, you'll be missing me, more than I do you.
Yeah when I'm gone, you'll be missing me, more than I do you.
Yeah when I'm gone, you'll be missing me, more than I do you.

I see your silver smile, and I'm left open.
Haven't seen you for a while, and I think it's showing.
I can't turn away, like I did back then.
Oh, I thought I turned the page, and now here I am.

My heart's racing, thoughts circle in my head.
I can't take this but I don't wanna say goodbye -

You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.
You're a poison, but you bring me back to life.
My pulse is freaking out - my tongue is twisted and dry.
You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why -

You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.
You're a poison, but you bring me back.
My pulse is freaking out - my tongue is twisted and dry.
You make me feel so good, and God, I don't know why.

And I think when I'm gone, you'll be missing me, more than I do you.
Yeah when I'm gone, you'll be missing me, more than I do you.
Yeah when I'm gone, you'll be missing me, more than I do you.
Track Name: This Is Love
Is this love? Is it over?
Or are we not tough enough to throw our hands back up?
Just to show them how much we've got?
'Cause we can show them that this is love.

I know I said things I didn't mean - words come out before I can think.
But I think we're gonna be okay; yeah, I think we're gonna be okay.
People said we're a perfect picture;
they could see us growing old together.
So I think we're gonna be okay; yeah, I think we're gonna be okay.

And I know this seems a little bit strange - yeah I know.

But is this love? Is it over?
Or are we not tough enough to throw our hands back up?
Just to show them how much we've got?
'Cause we can show them that this is love.

Oh, this is love, oh.

I wanna know, when I think back later, I won the game played by all the players.
I wanna know that we're gonna be okay; I wanna know that we're gonna be okay.
In the end, does the distance matter? Does anyone care who gets there faster?
I wanna know that we're gonna be, oh; I wanna know that we're gonna be, oh.
And I know this seems a little bit strange - yeah I know.

But is this love? Is it over?
Or are we not tough enough to throw our hands back up?
Just to show them how much we've got?
'Cause we can show them.

And at night I lie alone; dreams and hopes are all I know.
And then I close my eyes, I see your face,
and a smile breaks the - a smile breaks the pain.

Is this love? Is it over?
Or are we not tough enough to throw our hands back up?
Just to show them how much we've got?
'Cause we can show them that -

This is love - it's not over,
'cause what we've got makes us want to throw our hands back up.
Just to show them how much we've got -
'cause we can show them that this is love.

Oh, this is love, oh.
This is love.
A smile breaks the - a smile breaks the pain.
Track Name: Heavy
You're inside out; your heart is heavy, and broken now,
waiting for a sign.
Drift away; come again on a better day -
the past few have not been so kind.

So, you wonder - wonder where I've gone.

My world is upside down -
I've fallen out of place, but I'll still fight for you.
If I have to write it out, I'll write it out
to show you how much I need you now.

(Need you now)

I'm trying now; my thoughts are pounding, and won't slow down;
racing through my mind.
Weigh me down; hold me under, don't let me out.
I promise I'll make this right.

Still, you wonder - wonder where I've gone.

My world is upside down -
I've fallen out of place, but I'll still fight for you.
If I have to write it out, I'll write it out
to show you how much I need you now.

My world is upside down -
I've fallen out of place, but I'll still fight for you.
If I have to write it out, I'll write it out
to show you how much I need you now.

(My heart is heavy, heavy, heavy)

(Need you now)

My heart is heavy.
