I Know 03:15
I want to go down to a land and sing this song the best I can And tell all the girls that I’m sad, just so I could be the man I know I know you’re the sun, the sea I know It turns out I’m the one who’s bad, I mess around and then you're mad You kick the earth and throw the trash, teach me nothing, get the cash I know I know you’re the sun, the sea I know I changed my life with just one wish, you changed my life with just one kiss I have a set of different eyes and I’m not in a disguise You know That I know you’re the one for me I know A million people, here we are, I love you, but I’m so far That’s okay because I’m a mess, but I’m not here to impress You know And I know you’re the one for me I know To all those people who don’t mess around You’ll never guess what I found I went down to a land and I sang this song the best I can I told all the girls that I was sad, now they think that I’m the man But I know I know you’re the one for me I know

Saying your name is like stepping on broken glass The way that you said mine always gave me a good laugh Now it's 5:20 and I got a rock in my shoe Because the things that I said, they were affecting you You said my smile Was brighter than the sun But I just have one question Was I the only one? I don’t think I was You loved the way that I looked at you Until the big day came and we cried out for June Now my streets are empty, do I walk? Do I dare? People will start giving me, start giving me weird stares You said my smile Was brighter than the sun But I just have one question Was I the only one? I don’t think I was So I put my black loafers on and I head to the bar The waitress thought I was cool until my tongue talked of war Now the sun is going down and I close my eyes I never thought one day that I was gonna die You said my smile Was brighter than the sun But I just have one question Was I the only one? I don’t think I was

Life on the outside doesn’t make sense anymore Gives me no reason to complain So when you need a hand don’t come back to me Because I’m not your man I’m not your man I’m not your man I’m not your man I’m not your man Oh I see the times I would make you laugh With the things that I would do And when you left my heart, my soul was screaming too Because I’m not your man I’m not your man I’m not your man I’m not your man I’m not your man Another year passed Your man was being bad You really need my hand So I came to you With a hand full of flowers and some kind words too Please be with me You make my life so complete You’re everything that I need I want to be your man Now I’m your man
4.
I Never Said 04:07
Winning you is almost as good as a rich man’s boots People lie saying they ain’t sad whenever they lose Screaming at the top of our lungs cause we have nothing to do Throwing punches at the people cause they don’t believe in you I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m sorry I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m sorry I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m, I said I’m sorry Every time I go somewhere, I go out the back door Then I’m counting my mistakes, ‘bout 3 or 4 All this pressure on me, it is too much Sorry this is so depressing, but that is just my luck I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m sorry I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m sorry I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m, I said I’m sorry Now I’m going to Heaven without no ring But before I die and my hair turns white let me say One more thing I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m sorry I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m sorry I never said I didn’t love ya, I said I’m, I said I’m sorry

Jealous 02:25
Well she packed up her bags and she headed for the wind Until I yelled her name and we fell in love again I’m not gunna say I was selfish I’m not gunna say I was jealous I keep going back to the place where we first met I know we don’t love each other, but I’m not ready yet For me to be alone I’m not ready cause you’ll be gone I found a place where I could sleep last night It didn’t hit my standards, but I guess it was nice Woo oh oh I guess it's just another story to tell Woo oh oh I guess it's just another reason for me to yell Woo woo woo, woo woo oh, yea I say woo woo woo Well she packed up her bags and she headed for the wind Until I yelled her name and she fell in love again I’m not gunna say I was selfish I’m not gunna say I was jealous I’m not gunna say I was selfish I’m not gunna say I was jealous

I’m covered in blood I’m waiting for that light to turn green I parked my car and I crawled for the next foot or three Your name in lights, each bulb is dying oh so slowly I can see you running through my fingertips I came home at midnight and you were gone, tell me where you’ve been Were you wandering downtown trying to meet and trying to find another man? Or were you all alone just talking on the telephone because you’re done with me? Is that your case baby? I know my demons like the back of my hand Once you turn sad, I know you’ll understand Please don’t talk, don’t talk to me at all Because if you do, I’ll be running from the law I came home at midnight and you were gone, tell me where you’ve been Were you wandering downtown trying to meet and trying to find another man? Or were you all alone just talking on the telephone because you’re done with me? Is that your case baby?
7.
I don’t want you to leave I need you here, right beside me I will be all alone if you go I’ll be standing in an empty home So line up, the world is going to Hell as we speak And as we speak, you are listening to me I know you’ll forget about me I’m down on my knees and I’m begging you please Don’t leave me alone Don’t leave me alone Don’t leave me alone In the rain I know, I done some bad things I swear to you I’ll pay off that fee I know, I done some bad things I swear to you I’ll pay off that fee I don’t want you to leave I need you here, right beside me I will be all alone if you go I’ll be standing in an empty home
8.
You can take your mask off, I’m not a crowd I know you’re not sad, so don’t you frown But I might be wrong You can talk to me baby, what’s got you down? Talking to people like you is where the blues can be found and I say I see, I hear for you I got my own problems I ain’t got nothing more to do I realized something after all that we’ve done You don’t just treat my heart like it’s another one And for that I thank you, I thank you My, my love for you will never be gone, gone, gone and I say I see, I hear for you I got my own problems I ain’t got nothing more to do I see, I hear for you I got my own problems baby I ain’t got nothing more to do
9.
Lay Me Down 03:12
I did what I could Until I couldn’t anymore When I fell flat I fell flat on the floor You gave what you had Until you couldn’t anymore I think that’s the reason most people are poor So lay me down Don’t let me free Because when all went to Hell You depended on me And I failed These walls were blank We had nothing to do I found an old needle And I gave us tattoos I got your name You got mine So that ring on your finger ain’t the only thing on you for life So lay me down Don’t let me free Because when all went to Hell You depended on me And I failed So lay me down Don’t let me free Because when all went to Hell You depended on me And I failed
10.
There’s a hole in my wall, sometimes I wonder how big it will be There’s a hole in my heart, they say it's supposed to help with instinct I wanna be happy, but the methods I use are against me I am nice, but when it hits I’m a control freak I’m a sad little control freak I’m a sad little control freak I’m a sad little control freak Then we sing our song The towers are high and I am very scared of heights Now I am lying, I am just as high as my frights What am I saying, people will think I’m crazy What am I thinking, people already think I’m crazy I’m a sad little control freak I’m a sad little control freak I’m a sad little control freak Then we sing our song I’m a sad little control freak I’m a sad little control freak I’m a sad little control freak Then we sing our song, our song We sing our song

Once A Lover 04:12
I sat back as the fire burnt the tracks and I kept my distance But once it was over I followed you home, I broke down that fence I’m not leaving, so go lock your door And tell me that you love me more and more Keep telling all these people who you’re writing those songs for Seems like I don’t hear that shit anymore I’ve been around and the things I found are all on your wishlist But I couldn’t catch them, I couldn’t bring them home Now you can’t get your rest What are you doing all of this for? Just tell me that you love me more and more Keep telling all these people who you’re writing those songs for Seems like I don’t hear that shit anymore I’m not leaving so go lock your door And tell me that you love me more and more Keep telling all these people who you’re writing those songs for I don’t get to hear that shit anymore
12.
Salty Times 05:13
The distance keeps us apart I don’t think we got on a good start You don’t know if you love me My heart is getting kinda heavy Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times As my guitar, it starts to ring The old man in the corner, he starts to sing He can’t reach most the notes But he knows how to roll a mean smoke Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times I could smell trouble from a mile away And it wasn’t stopping anytime soon I was born into a river of filth But I swear Lord, I had no clue Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times As I grow, I start to learn The more I talk, the more it burns The more it burns The more it burns The more it burns Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times Oh the salty times
