Track Name: X's
Jaime please I cannot move this
All the days you wanted to leave
Stick around with me, I know I can be
Better for you when you're turning blue

I wanted to live for you
But you push me back and that ain't cool
So who's the fool? Me or you?

Sunlight into the dark night when you
Look right through me
Sugar now is the time to go
Gotta let you know

Brake lights off of the 405
Cause you know that I could drive
All the joy and ecstacy you wanted free

Jaime leave me with your movies
Every day I'm stuck in rewind
Brave the world with me
The sweet and the mean
Shadows collide when our hearts divide

Cause this rainy day won't go away
I feel this moment going insane
I pray for you most every day
But with you gone they start to fade
Track Name: Erasing Us
I know what I feel and I feel it all
My heart skips when I get the call
From you girl
In the middle of the rainfall

And you show up at my door step
Baby you're all soaking wet
Come on in, come on in
It ain't a sin, ain't a sin

Let me dry you off and soothe you
And let your soul move you
Come up to my room
You can show me to my doom

Then you say my name
Is it pleasure, is it pain
Is it worth it
Can I work it

Moving to the storm as we feel the love
It's like a high from another drug
Just ride it out
Till the morning now

I always take more than I can have
Cause I'm sick and I'm still sad
From waiting

For the moment that you have me
Tell me all the stories
All the days spent away
And your nights led astray

Lovers in the morning
Evil in the evening
Wash away the danger
With sweet erasure

I won't run away, I won't run away from you now
All i want is you, nothing left to lose now
Track Name: Dirty
You can't love him like me
Still aching to leave
I'm still over you

And you can't shake the disease
When you fall asleep
When I'm onto you

Give it up
It's not enough
Baby don't you know that you did me dirty
Gave it all
Was beautiful
Now you got me thinking that I'm acting crazy
You know that I take it
Baby you know
So serious/not so serious

So I made my mistake
And you fade away
What I tried to deny
Is the same today
Just a shot in the dark
To know how you are

What a love, what a daze
That i'm into you
You're the same old thing
That I've been through
Now you pull me apart
And it's never enough

Now do you wait for me honey
Do you dream of me now
That I'm so far gone

Gave it up
It's not enough
Baby now I know that I did you dirty
Gave it all
Was beautiful
Now I got you thinking that I'm acting crazy
I know I can take it
I know
So serious/not so serious

One time for the one time
Two times cause I'm still learning
Three times unlucky
We're four-on-the-floor and I'm still working
I try for another, I try
Track Name: House of Cards
There's too much
To your touch
And the love I can't afford

I'm tired
Of the liars
In a world that can't adore

Even when it's magic
Through the other tragic shit and all
We give it up so easily
We give up so you can breathe at all

There you go
Made of gold
Heavier than hearts untold

From the pain
So insane
Is it worth it?

This house of cards
Keeps falling
Just be strong for me
I long to be perfect

But the walls of flames
Keep burning
Keeping you
Out of view

You know love can be
One of two or three things you need to know
How to let me go or fight back for me
Turn a tragedy into heaven-sent
Mortal love is spent on you
Oh I warned you
Track Name: With You
You're better off without me
Far away and free
But I don't need to know
Don't let it show

I'm just moving through
This life towards you
Can we slow it down
Just think about our past

And I say to you, girl
We won't lose
Can I drop it all
Or fall enough?
Do you ask for love and such
A burden in the dusk
Oceans drove us apart

No more sorrow
No more pain
Just do away
With the fray

Only you should run far away
All the best parts were fading away
But I feel well, as you start to move
All I ever knew was how to love you
