Track Name: Skipping Hearts
miss you now and I need your touch
I don’t think that you like me that much
sittin’ waitin’ by the telephone
sittin’ waitin’ and I’m all alone

all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
tonight

If I gave you just a bit more time
do you think you could make up your mind
sittin’ waitin’ by the telephone
sittin’ waitin’ and I’m all alone

all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
tonight

something in the way you love me won't let me be
the way you run around I wish you'd set me free
stop playing this con, you keep me hangin' on
chasing you just brings me down

If I gave you just a bit more time
do you think you could make up your mind
sittin’ waitin’ by the telephone
I'm sittin’ waitin’ and I’m all alone

all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
tonight

all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
all I wanted was to be with you
your skipping hearts
your skipping hearts
your skipping hearts like stones
your skipping hearts
your skipping hearts
your skipping hearts like stones

like stones
skipping hearts like stones
skipping hearts like stones
skipping hearts like stones
Track Name: The New Standard
she smiles like sunshine
I wonder if she can read my mind
with eyes like the ocean
no diamond could ever out shine
then she came along and she kissed me
and I swear I never felt this way
when she ran away she said “miss me”
all I wanted was for her to stay

she’s worthy of applause
she’s comprised my defenses
I surrender to her awe
she’s a natural and a she’s a passion
then she came along and she kissed me
and I swear I never felt this way
when she ran away she said “miss me”
all I wanted was to hear her to say

I’ll never give up on you
I’ll never give up on you
I’ll never let go, cause I need you so, oh
I’ll never give up on you

time with her is mythical
she always knows just what to say
with a laugh like an angels trumpets
you know she blows my cares away
then she came along and she kissed me
and I swear I never felt this way
when she ran away she said “miss me”
all I wanted was to hear her to say

I’ll never give up on you
I’ll never give up on you
never let go, cause I need you so, oh
I’ll never give up on you (not on you, baby)

(go!)

I’ll never give up on you
I’ll never give up on you
never let go, cause I need you so, oh
I’ll never give up on you
on you, on you, on you
on you
I’ll never give up on you
Track Name: Sneaking Cigarettes
her sloppy kisses leave a bruise
she's aroused and i'm confused
taking risks the dangerous kind
stain the sheets, close the blinds
every choice, every chance we take
every time the branch bends to break
of all the mask i've come to own
it fits just right, it feels like home

she's sneaking cigarettes & wishing on stars
late night cheep, beer, stolen cars
with a prayer on her hand and a poem on her lips
a life wasted, worth more then this
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
...waiting there for me

i can still smell you on my clothes
what dreams are left only heaven knows
your making promises i can't keep
telling secrets while you sleep
a heart that hurts a heart like mine
i'm always yours, your hard to find
an angels face i wouldn't know
she fell from grace so long ago

she's sneaking cigarettes & wishing on stars
late night cheep, beer, stolen cars
with a prayer on her hand and a poem on her lips
a life wasted, worth more then this
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long


she's a pretty catastrophe
burns bright for all to see
with a voice like a memory
and she's never coming home

she's starting fires with her eyes
a kind of love to agonize
she wore truth like a disguise
and she's never coming home

post script and epitaph
listen now i can hear her laugh
singing songs on her behalf
the girl we'll never know

she's sneaking cigarettes & wishing on stars
late night cheep, beer, stolen cars
with a prayer on her hand and a poem on her lips
a life wasted, worth more then this
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea

she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide is she waiting there for me
Track Name: 'flow'
I’m addicted to the sound of your voice
As if I had a choice
You started singing, started singing your siren song
And I knew, I knew, I knew it wouldn’t be long

I wanna touch you, wanna touch you in your favorite spot
I better close the door cause the fires so hot, hot
fires so hot, hot
fires so hot, hot
come on baby, baby don’t stop now
come on baby, baby don’t stop now
come on baby, baby don’t stop now
come on baby

I’m addicted to the sound of your voice (your voice)
As if I had a choice (I had a choice)
I wanna touch you, wanna touch you in your favorite spot (just right now)
I better close the door cause your thighs look red hot

don’t forget just what I said
she’s got a hole up in her head
so when she dreams it comes out wrong
and when she talks it’s like a song
if she asked I’d gather stars
I’d give them to her in a jar
give them to her in a jar
Track Name: Damage
She fell in love with the damage and now it’s all that she wants
She fell in love with the damage and now it’s all that she wants
She likes the feel of a car crash she likes it when the blood starts to rush
She fell in love with the damage and now it’s all that she wants

All she wants
All she wants
All she wants
All she wants
Damage
Track Name: Harding's Tale
John Harding was a pour workin man killed a girl from the town around here
He’s sittin in his cell and prayin just as well that he never saw her eyes again
that he never saw her eyes again
When he’s laying down at night he get’s an awful fright he remembers oh how she screamed
when he pushed her in the well it should of ended well but she’s hauntin’ up all his dreams (OH LORD YEAH)
she’s hauntin’ up all his dreams

when her dress was found they new that she had drowned, a commotion for a hangin that night
they caught him red hand n’ put him on the stand sayin “forgive for what I’ve done” (OH LORD YEAH)
“forgive for what I’ve done”

I’m a hard workin’ man I’ve done the best I can but it never seemed to turn out right
n’ baby what you got you know it ain’t a lot but I know that I can make you mine

All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes

All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
All I ever wanted all I ever needed all of it’s in your eyes
