Track Name: I Know
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
Track Name: Was I The Only One
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
Track Name: I'm Not Your Man
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
Track Name: I Never Said
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
Track Name: Jealous
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
Track Name: Covered In Blood
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?
Track Name: I Don't Want You To Leave
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
Track Name: I See, I Hear
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
Track Name: Lay Me Down
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
Track Name: Control Freak
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
Track Name: Once A Lover
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
Track Name: Salty Times
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
