Track Name: Lies Leave The Scars
I've been driving and thinking all night long
Trying to figure out just what went wrong
Even now the things you say don't fly
The truth may sting, but deeper cuts the lie
I just can't get over how little you must think of me
Did you think I wouldn't see?

Did you have to leave me wondering?
Did you think I couldn't tell?
And I found out what I need to know
To break me from this spell
I've been turning it over in my mind
As I'm driving in my car
Oh, and I know the truth can hurt
But your lies leave the scars
Your lies leave the scars

I could read betrayal in your eyes
Like daggers that cut me down to size
What kind of fool am I going to be?
Hold on to my last shred of dignity

I'm wounded now much more than I can bear
I'm bleeding in your stare

Did you have to leave me wondering?
Did you think I couldn't tell?
And I found out what I need to know
To break me from this spell
I've been turning it over in my mind
As I'm driving in my car
Oh, and I know the truth can hurt
But your lies leave the scars
Your lies leave the scars

Over and over and over again
Over and over and over again
Over again, all in my head

Did you have to leave me wondering?
Did you think I couldn't tell?
And I found out what I need to know
To break me from this spell
I've been turning it over in my mind
As I'm driving in my car
Oh, and I know the truth can hurt
But your lies leave the scars
Your lies leave the scars

Over again, all in my head
Over again, all in my head
Over again, all in my head
Track Name: Just Another Night
It was just another night, like any other night
Nothing special going on
Lights are glowing colors
Daytime rituals are gone

Oh, so ordinary
Completely black and white
Business as usual, it was just another night

It was just another day, like any other day
Indistinguishable
Going through the motions
Oh, so very dull

Blindly observing
Living the parts we play
Except for just one thing it was just another day

It was just another night when I met you
And I totally fell for you
It was just so ordinary, then you made my dreams come true
I know it’s fading in the light
Except for just one thing, it was just another night

It was just another night, like all the rest before
Until I saw you standing there
You completely took my breath away
And I was captured by your stare

I asked you for your story
You said you’re writing it on site
The world shifted right there
And it was just another night

It was just another night when I met you
And I totally fell for you
It was just so ordinary, then you made my dreams come true
It was just another night when I saw you
And you fell into my arms
Going through the motions ‘till I was captured by your charms
I know it’s fading in the light
Until I saw you there, it was just another night

It’s the beginning of my story
And it started out so trite
It was the best day of my life
And it was just another night

It was just another night when I met you
And I totally fell for you
It was just so ordinary, then you made my dreams come true
It was just another night when I saw you
And you fell into my arms
It was just so ordinary ‘till I was captured by your charms
I know it’s fading in the light
Until I saw you there, it was just another night
Track Name: Unoriginal
Britney hair, Rihanna dress
Kardashian pose when the camera’s set
The picture is all too clear
When you’re out with your friends I’m not sure
What character you’re going for
But I’ve seen it time and time again

You make it known you’re in a room with your Paris Hilton way
In your mind everyone should see you as:
All American, original; a superstar is made
But it’s not that way

You’re like a song I’ve heard a hundred times
A movie we’ve all memorized
Trying to pass off as new, that’s you!
You’re like a story passed down into lore
We’ve heard it so many times before
You think you’re one of a kind, but you’re unoriginal
You’re unoriginal, baby

You think you’re Bella from Twilight
And your charm will cause a jealous fight
But does anybody really care?
Isn’t it fresh when you do that more?
But I saw it last week on the Jersey Shore
The reruns are getting old

Your paparazzi crew is nowhere to be found
Could it be that your claim to fame is that
You’re trying to be like someone else and you never really got it down?
You look like a clown

You’re like a song I’ve heard a hundred times
A movie we’ve all memorized
Trying to pass off as new, that’s you!
You’re like a story passed down into lore
We’ve heard it so many times before
You think you’re one of a kind, but you’re unoriginal
You’re unoriginal, baby

If you would only be yourself, you’d be original
And people would like you for you
And you wouldn’t be so dull

You’re like a song I’ve heard a hundred times
A movie we’ve all memorized
Trying to pass off as new, that’s you!
You’re like a story passed down into lore
We’ve heard it so many times before
You think you’re one of a kind, but you’re unoriginal
You’re unoriginal, baby

You’re unoriginal, baby! You’re unoriginal, baby!
Why can’t you just be you?
You’re unoriginal, baby! You’re unoriginal, baby!
Why can’t you just be you?
Track Name: Embrace The Rain
Have you felt like you're never gonna let it go?
Have you wondered about the things you'll never know?
Have you thought about screaming at the rain?
Because everything's wrong and it causes too much pain

There's nothing I could ever do to change what has to be
So I open up my arms and look to the clouds to set it free

And I can feel it falling down
All around, all around

Embrace the rain
Feel it come down upon you
It's something that you just can't change
Laugh when you don't want to
And embrace the rain
Embrace the rain

I remember when I couldn't take another storm
And my spirit was feeling weak and worn
And I realized I had to let it all go away
And feel the joy in the midst of the rain

And I laughed out loud even though I wanted to cry
I let the rain replace all the tears from my eyes

And I can feel it falling down
All around, all around

Embrace the rain
Feel it come down upon you
It's something that you just can't change
Laugh when you don't want to
And embrace the rain
Embrace the rain

If I can't stop the rain I'll accept it as it is
Let it wash away my hopelessness

Embrace the rain
Feel it come down upon you
It's something that you just can't change
Laugh when you don't want to

And embrace the rain
Feel it come down upon you
It's something that you just can't change
And laugh when you don't want to
And embrace the rain
And embrace the rain
And embrace the rain
Embrace the rain
Track Name: I Forgot You
Here I am again. It’s never gonna end
All I can tell is that I just can’t win
It seems so dry, one last goodbye
Makes me wonder why I even try

Desperate times, a lonely season
Then I tried to find a reason

How do I move along this open highway?
Where do I go when nothing rings true?
Who can I trust when things just won’t go my way?
Then I remembered
I forgot you
I forgot you

How could it slip my mind? It happens all the time
One step closer and two steps behind
I can’t recall the place. I’m left without a trace
Here on my own to finish this race

Shadows fall, fogs my memory
But I start to see more clearly

How do I move along this open highway?
Where do I go when nothing rings true?
Who can I trust when things just won’t go my way?
Then I remembered
I forgot you
I forgot you

From behind my deepest thoughts
You were with me all the while
With my recollection tied in knots
I’ll never again forget your smile
I won’t forget you

How do I move along this open highway?
Where do I go when nothing rings true?
Who can I trust when things just won’t go my way?
Then I remembered, then I remembered

How do I move along this open highway?
Where do I go when nothing rings true?
Who can I trust when things just won’t go my way?
Then I remembered
I forgot you
I forgot you
I forgot you
I forgot you
Track Name: The Good Part
The same old stuff, the same old place, another hill, another race
A head start to the dull part

Day is dragging, the morning’s long, a hundred years to the closing gong
Here we are at the slow part

I need a good time and a juicy thrill and hang onto the way I feel
I’ve had enough of the bad parts
So I’ve skipped ahead to that sweet spot where I’m soaking up the good I’ve got
It’s time to go where the fun starts
I want to get to the good part
I want to get to the good part

Stuck inside most of the day, knowing there should be a better way
There’s something wrong with the long parts

Out on a date and I go for the kiss, but a peck on the cheek is all I get
Can’t I roll over the lame parts?

I need a good time and a juicy thrill, hang onto the way I feel
I’ve had enough of the bad parts
So I’ve skipped ahead to that sweet spot where I’m soaking up the good I’ve got
It’s time to go where the fun starts
I want to get to the good part
I want to get to the good part

Why is so much of life just going through the motions?
I’ve placed a ban on boredom and I’m changing all my fortunes
I’m tired of doing all the things that I don’t want to do
I’m dialing up excitement. I’m getting in the mood

I need a good time and a juicy thrill, hang onto the way I feel
I’ve had enough of the bad parts
So I’ve skipped ahead to that sweet spot where I’m soaking up the good I’ve got
It’s time to go where the fun starts
I want to get to the good part
I want to get to the good part

Hey, let’s get to the good part!
I want to get to the good part
I want to get to the good part
Track Name: Living The Dream
I always knew I'd find the key to eternal happiness
Living in a constant state of unending bliss
But I have just one regret

Giving up on you
And everything fell through
But I imagine us there now
Standing on the top and never looking down

You and me, we're living the dream
The way that we want
We’re not holding back
And I still believe
You and me, we're living the dream

I could never hold onto anything for longer than I need
Horizon always showed me a new place to run
But I never stopped to think

I'd be lost without your touch
And I'm missing you so much
The one I’ve been leaning on
And we could go flying past the mountains and beyond

You and me, we're living the dream
The way that we want
Not holding back
And I still believe
You and me, we're living the dream
Whoa, oh, we’re living the dream, whoa, oh

And the years have rumbled past
It's not often good things last
But I feel you in my soul
Grabbing with both hands and watch our bodies rock and roll

You and me, we're living the dream
The way that we want
We’re not holding back
And I still believe
You and me, we're living the dream
We’re living the dream
We’re living the dream
You and me, we’re living the dream
Track Name: I Loved You All Wrong
You sat there so still, looking at me
I think I lost my cool and I could hardly think
But your eyes were like a fire, burning me in two
When I reached for your hand it seemed like the right thing to do

But it wasn't the way it should have been done
I got lost in you, you felt like the one

I wanted to stay, but instead I should've gone
I should've let you go, but I held you all night long
I should've took it slow, but I couldn't help but fall
I should've done it right, but I loved you all wrong
I loved you all wrong

Some people say it's good to take things slow
And when the moment is right, both of us will know
But they've never met you, never looked in your eyes
I held you close to me and I loved you all night

If it was a mistake, I'd do it again
To feel you so close and never let it end

I wanted to stay, but instead I should've gone
I should've let you go, but I held you all night long
I should've took it slow, but I couldn't help but fall
I should've done it right, but I loved you all wrong
I loved you all wrong

Hey, we've only got one chance to get it right
Make or break, I want to take you through the night
And I can feel you hold on so tight

I wanted to stay, but instead I should've gone
I should've let you go, but I held you all night long
I should've took it slow, but I couldn't help but fall
I should've done it right, whoa, oh

I wanted to stay, but instead I should've gone
I should've let you go, but I held you all night long
I should've took it slow, but I couldn't help but fall
I should've done it right, whoa, oh but I loved you all wrong
I loved you all wrong
I loved you all wrong, I loved you all wrong
I loved you all wrong
I loved you, I loved you, I loved you all wrong
I loved you all wrong
Track Name: Take A Chance On Me
I'm not your usual type
I've heard it all before
You've planned out your whole life
And you're looking for something more
Another year goes by and there you are in the same place
Could it be there's something you need to face?

You see me on the surface
And you've made up your mind
But so much more is there beneath
If you just take the time
You always seem to see what won't work out the way it should
But have you ever stopped to think that it could?

Take a chance on me
Oh, take a chance on me
I may not be what you wanted, but I am what you need
Take a chance on me
Oh, baby, take a chance on me
I won't let you down. I'll make you believe, in me

You know you drive me wild
It's something I can't explain
I feel just like a child
When I whisper out your name
I'll move heaven and earth to see the glimmer of your smile
Put your chips on me, I'm worth your while

Take a chance on me
Oh, take a chance on me
I may not be what you wanted, but I am what you need
Take a chance on me
Oh, baby, take a chance on me
I won't let you down. I'll make you believe, in me

There's something that's missing and it hasn't gone away
I'm a risk your heart is telling you to take
Don't wait

Take a chance on me
Oh, take a chance on me
I may not be what you wanted, but you know that I am what you need
Take a chance on me
Oh, baby, take a chance on me
I won't let you down. I'll make you believe, in me

Oh, take a chance on me
I won’t let you down. I’ll make you believe in me
Track Name: Ghost In The Attic
I just can't bring myself to go upstairs
Worn out dreams and broken chairs
But there's more than that and useless junk that's waiting there

When I ascend the steps and reach out for
The handle of that lonely door
What awaits me there strikes to my core just like before

Like a spirit from the past
The thought of you won't pass

There's a ghost in the attic and it just won't go
You keep on haunting my heart and my soul
Feelings appear they come and go from everywhere
There's a ghost in the attic and it's scaring me
I can't let go after everything
I'm frozen here and I can't go anywhere

This haunted house has no escape
The times I held you, I held a wraith
Your specter passes through the walls and to my face

My time with you is in the great beyond
But my heart still feels like it can't go on
The undead pain resurrects before the dawn

Your image won't go away
Your memory's here to stay

There's a ghost in the attic and it just won't go
You keep on haunting my heart and my soul
Feelings appear they come and go from everywhere
There's a ghost in the attic and it's scaring me
I can't let go after everything
I'm frozen here and I can't go anywhere

Your image won't go away
Your memory's here to stay

There's a ghost in the attic and it just won't go
You keep on haunting my heart and my soul
Feelings appear they come and go from everywhere
There's a ghost in the attic and it's scaring me
I can't let go after everything
I'm frozen here and I can't go anywhere
Track Name: When It's Gone Too Far
Take the wheel, have a spill
There’s nothing but time to kill
Hold me down, spin around
Together in a lost and found

Push the edge a little farther
Jump head first into the water

I want to know when it all starts to crumble
I want to see it all fall apart
I want to feel the walls start to rumble
And when there’s nothing left to save I want to know
When it’s gone too far
When it’s gone too far

Caught my eye, have to try
Don’t even ask me why
In my sight for tonight
Only one way to make it right

Squeeze on in a little tighter
Feel your body getting lighter

I want to know when it all starts to crumble
I want to see it all fall apart
I want to feel the walls start to rumble
And when there’s nothing left to save I want to know
When it’s gone too far
When it’s gone too far

Push the edge a little farther
Jump head first into the water

I want to know when it all starts to crumble
I want to see it all fall apart
I want to feel the walls start to rumble
And when there’s nothing left to save I want to know

I want to know when it all starts to crumble
I want to see it all fall apart
I want to feel the walls start to rumble
And when there’s nothing left to save I want to know
When it’s gone too far
When it’s gone too far
When it’s gone too far
Track Name: Superficial People
Alone and confused
I can't remember all the things I left unused
I can only expect them to be much more than bruised

With nowhere to go
Unfamiliar faces always know
And they seem so cold; if they're friendly I don't know

Can you help me get out of this place?
It helps so much to see a friendly face

I'm lost in a sea, oh, of superficial people and I can see
You're a light in the night. Will you rescue me?
I'm trapped in a maze, oh, of empty stares
And will you help me find my way?
Oh, I don't want to get caught up in yesterday
Superficial people, superficial people

It's always the same
Oh, they really don't care when they ask me, what's my name?
And they're looking around for a better poker game

A question or two
And the answers make them slightly more amused
Oh, and off they go to another rendezvous

You're the only one that's here to stay
Help me get away

I'm lost in a sea, oh, of superficial people and I can see
You're a light in the night. Will you rescue me?
I'm trapped in a maze, oh, of empty stares
And will you help me find my way?
Oh, I don't want to get caught up in yesterday

I'm lost in a sea, oh, of superficial people and I can see
You're a light in the night. Will you rescue me?
I'm trapped in a maze, oh, of empty stares
And will you help me find my way?
Oh, I don't want to get caught up in yesterday
Track Name: The Best Is Yet To Come
So now you’re wondering what’s coming next
I hear it in your voice and I read it in your text
Are you afraid of things stalling out?
Things have been good too long and it raises all those doubts

I know you can’t see around the corner
But that only means we’re into the unknown
And if we start to veer into the shoulder
There’s something better waiting down the road

It’s like playing with fire and never getting burned
It’s like unchained desire that never could be earned
Baby we’re nowhere from being done
If you think it’s good right now well then just wait
The best is yet to come
The best is yet to come

We had a good run and that’s for sure!
It doesn’t mean bad times are at the door
You and me are like fuel and a flame
When we’re together we are lighting up this place

It’s okay to wonder about the future
But the forecast has nothing to do with gloom
If you’re still uncertain that light isn’t getting brighter
Let’s take another trip up to my room

It’s like playing with fire and never getting burned
It’s like unchained desire that never could be earned
Baby we’re nowhere from being done
If you think it’s good right now well then just wait
The best is yet to come
The best is yet to come

Nothing says we have to follow
A book of rules that tells us what to do
Even though some people think it’s shallow
Every time I see you in that dress I come unglued

It’s like playing with fire and never getting burned
It’s like unchained desire that never could be earned
Baby we’re nowhere from being done
If you think it’s good right now well then just wait
The best is yet, the best is yet
The best is yet to come

It’s like playing with fire and never getting burned
It’s like unchained desire that never could be earned
Baby we’re nowhere from being done
If you think it’s good right now well then just wait
The best is yet to come
The best is yet to come
The best is yet to come
The best is yet to come
