Track Name: Tip Of My Tongue
Tip Of My Tongue

There’s no point in settling the score
‘Cause you knock me down and I beg for more
Like an addict, struggling to break free
You tighten your grip on me
And I am six months clean, trying to stay that way
If you’d just let me

Oh, what are you running from
Oh, what are you running to
Hide and seek yourself away from me
I’ll be blind to this empty shell of you

You tread the fine line
Omitted truths, your sweet little lies
You have preyed upon my sympathies,
Manipulated reality
Tell me, what is your motivation
Can you rationalize what you have done

Oh, what are you running from
Oh, what are you running to
Hide and seek yourself away from me
I’ll be blind to this empty shell of you

What I would like to say to you is on the tip of my tongue
Words for her form on the tip of my tongue
But I will never say to you what is on the tip of my tongue

Oh, what are you running from
Oh, what are you running to
Hide and seek yourself away from me
I’ll be blind to this empty shell of you
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting

It’s the empty right side of the bed
And the pictures that I can’t bear to take down
It’s the song that I can’t get out of my head
I am waiting for you to come around

It’s your mail that comes to where you don’t call home
And the two car garage with just the one
It’s the way my heart pounds at the phone
I am waiting on a hope that doesn’t come

These days are haunted by these ghosts
An aching phantom pain
I don’t know what to do with these holes
I am waiting for you to fade
I am waiting for you to fade
I am praying for you to fade

It is how you expect me to be okay
The re-written history that I don’t know
It’s the dent on my finger where my ring laid
I am waiting to be alone

These days are haunted by these ghosts
An aching phantom pain
I don’t know what to do with these holes
I am waiting for you to fade
I am waiting for you to fade
I am praying for you to fade

Did you get what you wanted
(Maybe I don’t want to know)
Did it go like you thought it would
(Maybe I don’t want to know)

These days are haunted by these ghosts
An aching phantom pain
I don’t know what to do with these holes
I am waiting for you to fade
I am waiting for you to fade
I am praying for you to fade
Track Name: Save You
Save You

I’ve been thinking of your prophecy
All those years back
I’m overwhelmed by your hypocrisy
What do you do to fill the gaps

Who’s gonna save you now
Who’s gonna praise you now
Who’s gonna save you now

I never needed you to stand with me
I’m doing fine here by myself
Still could’ve been nice to have the company
Guess you were busy someplace else

Who’s gonna save you now
Who’s gonna praise you now
Who’s gonna save you

You’re so busy with your rules
You can’t ever see beyond
You hear the beep beep beep of the alarm
But then you miss the waking of the dawn

If one day you find that life has led you
Down an unexpected path
Maybe you’ll learn a different kind of lesson
About what love could bring you back

Who’s gonna save you now
Who’s gonna praise you now
Who’s gonna save you now
Who’s gonna save you now
Track Name: The Last Time
The Last Time

This is the last song that I will write about you
This is the last tear that I will cry for you
This is the last time that I will worry for you
No more sleep will I lose over losing you

Seasons change and I remain
Steady as a rock
What have I got
This is goodbye
The final lie

This is the last breath that I will catch missing you
This is the last beat my heart will sound for you
These are the last words that I will heed from you
No more will I feel what I have felt for you

Seasons change and I remain
Steady as a rock
What have I got
This is goodbye
The final lie

‘Cause I am not worthless, you are not worth this
No matter what you say about me
I am not worthless, you are not worth this
You’re not worth what I have done to myself
‘Cause I am not worthless, you are not worth this
You are not my problem anymore

Seasons change, I move away
Free of the weight
I couldn’t take
This is goodbye
The final lie
Track Name: I Still Believe
I Still Believe

I can feel that a change is coming
The tiniest shift in the way the wind’s blowing
March in Detroit when the ground is still frozen
And I can smell spring in the warmth of the sun
I think I’m ready to finally say goodbye
Maybe I’m a fool to believe
But I still believe in love

‘Cause I need to believe in a love
That never leaves
Yes, I need to believe in a love
That never leaves

I am living in the past and the future
No such thing as present tense
Time’s as fluid as the ocean
Current pushing me with each breath
Breathe in and the moment is gone
Breathe out as you beg for another one
Maybe I’m a fool to believe
But I still believe in love

‘Cause I need to believe in a love
That never leaves
Yes, I need to believe in a love
That never leaves

And I know it takes more than hard-earned faith
To move me onward to a better place
How much more would you ask me to take
What of mercy
And what about grace

‘Cause I need to believe in a love
That never leaves
(What of mercy, what about grace)
Yes, I need to believe in a love
That never leaves
(I’m begging for mercy, I’m begging for grace)
