Track Name: Where Did Your Love Go
Cleaning the closet, emptying the drawers
Packing boxes, sweeping up the floors
Seems like yesterday we moved in here together
And now I'm moving out alone

Where did your love for me go
If you find it will you please let me know
I won't say it was a waste of time
But I'm not waiting for you to find it
So when you do will you let me know

She said we can't live like this
And the truth is what it is
It's not about what we were
Or what we were supposed
It's only about what we are now

Where did your love for me go
If you find it will you please let me know
I won't say it was a waste of time
But I'm not waiting for you to find it
So when you do will you let me know

When I call she doesn't take the phone
I just want to know how you're doing
I hoped that one day we'd look back and say we were wrong
But I don't think that day will ever come

Where did your love for me go
If you find it will you please let me know
I won't say it was a waste of time
But I'm not waiting for you to find it
So when you do will you let me know
Track Name: Taking the Long Way Home
Unlike the days of wisdom when we're fighting to be someone
Our lives have taken steps in directions that we don't know
And all the paths we've dreaded among the crowded dreams
We walk the final mile taking the long way home

The long way home
Taking the long way home
We walk the final mile taking the long way home

My life's afforded privileges that only I can understand
And it cost me almost everything to get to where I am
But looking back will only keep me from moving on
Nobody goes the same way taking the long way home

The long way home
Taking the long way home
Nobody goes the same way taking the long way home
Track Name: You, Me and the Silence
Every now and then things get out of hand
And we say things that make us feel pain
But it's hard because we don't want to stop
Fighting to get the last word

I don't want any trouble tonight
Though it's hard to deny it
All I want is you, me and the silence

Sometimes I think we do it for the sport
Just to relieve the pressure
But no punching bag could handle the blows
That we dish out to each other

I don't want any trouble tonight
Though it's hard to deny it
All I want is you, me and the silence

Tomorrow is another day and what we feel now won't matter
So close your eyes and sleep it off
In the morning you'll feel better

I don't want any trouble tonight
Though it's hard to deny it
All I want is you, me and the silence
Track Name: Came Here Tonight
I came here tonight, to tell you that I’m
Not coming around anymore
But while I’m here, I might as well just stay
I tried to quit you before, but I can’t let you go
Your grip is strong and for too long you held me tight
So I came here tonight, to tell you that I’m
Not hanging around

You came to my door, what for
You ain’t supposed to come around here anymore
But while you’re here, you might as well come in
You quit on me once, now you’re back
And there’s nothing left to say
So turn around and go back to where you came
Cause you’re out here tonight, to tell me you’re not
Hanging around

I came here tonight, to tell you that I’m
Not coming around anymore
But while I’m here, I might as well just stay
I tried to quit you before, but I can’t let you go
Your grip is strong and for too long you held me tight
So I came here tonight, to tell you that I’m
To tell you that I’m
Not hanging around
Track Name: It's Not Easy
If you come back we could reconcile the differences
If you come back we could try to make it work
If you come back we could start at the beginning
If you come back I'd give you everything

But it's not easy being me
It's not easy now you know
It's not easy being me
It's not easy why'd you go

If you come back I'll take you to the country
If you come back I'll buy that new dress
If you come back I would take you home
If you come back I would lay you down

But it's not easy being me
It's not easy now you know
It's not easy being me
It's not easy

I'm not making any promises
I'm not saying you should
Life's too short to be angry
And too long to be apart

If you come back I will be the man
If you come back I'll find that new job
If you come back we'll have the family we wanted
If you come back we'll be happy

But it's not easy being me
It's not easy now you know
It's not easy being me
It's not easy
Track Name: Tell Me
Love you should be mine
That man you're with will only waste your time
You say you love him but he makes you blue
I would never act that way with you

Woman be with me
The one you want is only make believe
You say there is love in his eyes
But with this man the sun will never rise

Friends is what we are
And what we have has gotten us this far
The grass is only greener in your mind
What's real is here right before your eyes

So please tell me
My heart is ready for your honesty
You will never have to say again
Just once is all and it will be the end

The end of me
Track Name: When She
When she's sad I wanna cry
When she's alone I wanna die
When she's hurt I wanna bleed
She's the one
The one I need

When she's mad I wanna scream
When she's tired I wanna sleep
When she's hungry I wanna eat
She's the one
The one for me

When she's happy I wanna smile
When she dances I wanna try
When she sways I wanna swing
She's my love
My everything

When she wakes up I wanna be there
When she puts on her makeup I wanna see her
When she calls I'll always answer
Because she's mine
Track Name: Stone to Gold
You left me like a stone
Cold and buried in the ground
I didn't know
How to get out of this hole

Maybe with a little more time
Take this stone and turn it into gold

It ended so fast
I didn't know what to do
Threw me down to the bottom of the river
Leaving me to drown

Maybe with a little more time
Take this stone and turn it into gold

Deep down you didn't want to do it
I don't know what makes you this way
But it hurts so much I can't take anymore
All I can do is wait

Maybe with a little more time
Take this stone and turn it into gold
Track Name: Never Could Have
I wanted a love but I got a lie
I can't hold on now it's too much
Mad at a liar and my head is on fire
I can't hold on now it's too hot

I want you
I need you
I know I only want something
I know I never could have

It never lasts now I'm breaking glass
You just can't run away and disappear
Being alone now that isn't wrong
But everyone needs something once in a while

I want you
I need you
I know I that I can't

I want you
I need you
I know I only want something
I know I never could have
Track Name: Let You Go
I know he hates it when I call
But he'll have to get used to it for now
I might call you on your birthday
I might call to say hello
I hope he treats you like I did
I hope you can fly

I've had time to think about you
I wanted to let you know
I'm moving on without you
It's time to let you go
