Track Name: Rooftop
Rooftop

We spent most days on the rooftop
Smoking cigarettes, singing love songs
In the parked car up all night long
Sat in stairwells as out hearts broke in two


Most days we spent together ‘cause
We realized they go so fast
Sometimes I get to wondering if
These perfect days will last


Skipping classes just to hang out
Sat in grasses of the places we knew
Concerts called us, spent all our bucks
Concrete gargoyles looking over the roof


Most days we spent together ‘cause
We realized they go so fast
Sometimes I get to wondering if
These perfect days will last

We spent most days on the rooftop
Track Name: Two Feet On The Ground
Two Feet On The Ground

Well I sold the last of my things
I’m packing up tonight I’m heading for the hills
It’s only me, these clothes and this car
Some ragged dollar bills and my old guitar


I’ve stood all I can stand
My mission for tonight, to find a better man
He’s not a thing like you, oh no
With different eyes, a brighter smile and better clothes
Well you can see I’m moving on
So did you think that you had won?
I’m letting go, I’m sound
Landing two feet on the ground


Well other guys, they’ve come and gone
But in my heart you were the only one
Feelings I thought you returned
You told me you would rather be with her

Of all the people in the world
Of all the lies, of all the girls


I’ve stood all I can stand
My mission for tonight, to find a better man
He’s not a thing like you, oh no
With different eyes, a brighter smile and better clothes
Well you can see I’m moving on
So did you think that you had won?
I’m letting go, I’m sound
Landing two feet on the ground


My home my love where have you gone?
You picked your war and boy, you won
There might not be anyone better
But I can not wait on you forever


I’ve stood all I can stand
My mission for tonight, to find a better man
He’s not a thing like you, oh no
With different eyes, a brighter smile and better clothes
Well you can see I’m moving on
So did you think that you had won?
No, no I’m letting go, I’m sound
Landing two feet on the ground

I’m letting go, I’m sound
Landing two feet on the ground
Track Name: Wreck

I have got to stop thinking that maybe if I was different I’d have you
(I have got to stop thinking that maybe if I was different I’d have you)
‘Cause I am through with you
(But I’m not over you)

Patience, how I need it when I’m waiting for you, pining for you
But baby you don’t love me
And maybe that’s no tragedy at all


‘Cause I don’t need you darling
I’ve been so afraid of wanting you
But I’m free from longing after you
(I’m longing after you and)
I’ve been a wreck I have been such a fool
But I am through with you
(But I’m not over you)


Keep it to yourself my dear
(I have something to say)
I tell you, I don’t wanna hear it
Your romance doesn’t woo me
(To have you)
Remember when you threw me out
(I have to)
I can’t believe you’re coming back for more
(I’m coming back for more)


I don’t need you darling
I’ve been so afraid of wanting you
But I’m free from longing after you
(I’m longing after you and)
I’ve been a wreck I have been such a fool
But I am through with you
(But I’m not over you, no)

I was thinking about love today
(Thinkin’ about it)
wondering am I ever gonna be ok with
(Love, love, love, love)
The never ever ending give and take

‘Cause I don’t need you darling
(I need you baby)
I’ve been so afraid of wanting you
(You know I’ve been wanting you)
But I’m free from longing after you
(I’m longing after you and)
I’ve been a wreck I have been such a fool
But I am through with you
(But I’m not over you)

I have got to stop thinking that maybe If I was different
Track Name: Not The One
Not The One

I’ve been thinking about you babe, since last night
Trying to think of a way to make you love me
Alright, I know that’s crazy
Let’s face it, kid, you’re not The One for me

See the face in the sunrise this morning
I was thinking about it babe when you said I was boring
I let it phase me
Lets face it kid, there’s nothing left to see


You’re just a temptation my heart wants to chase, You don’t mean a thing
My heart skips a beat when I see your face, but you’re not what I need


I’ve been laughing all day long, just wondering
What you thought about me when my nervous words were stumbling
I played your fool, but
Lets face it kid, I’m not The One for you


You’re just a temptation my heart wants to chase, You don’t mean a thing
My heart skips a beat when I see your face, but you’re not what I need


You know that I like you, that isn’t the thing
Just doesn’t feel right
We don’t go together despite what I feel or how hard I try


You’re just a temptation my heart wants to chase, You don’t mean a thing
My heart skips a beat when I see your face, but you’re not what I need
You’re just a temptation my heart wants to chase, You don’t mean a thing
My heart skips a beat when I see your face, but you’re not what I need
Track Name: Paper Heart
Paper Heart

I can’t find the words to reconnect with your heart
We’re always growing and I guess we grew apart
You’re not the same, I guess it’s meant to be that way

We promised that we’d find our love again one day
You let go willingly, I’ve got myself to blame
I’m not the same, I guess it’s meant to be that way


Did I expect that you would come back for me
Did I think that somehow we were meant to be
No, not at all, not at all , not at all
We were just in love at seventeen


These tears I cry are real but they are not for you
I’ve learned that every heart that loves will break in two
It’s the same, Every love has felt this pain


You’re a theif, you robbed my while I closed my eyes
I can’t escape the wreckage of my heart’s first fire
I’m burning still, burning still, burning still
Reckless love was bound to fail


I’m not trying to shift the blame, I know I’ve caused my share of pain
But tonight the broken one is me
My human heart is torn, I’ll replace it with a paper one
So I won’t hurt anymore

Yes we’ve changed, we’re not the same
We can’t expect to be that way
