Track Name: Take Everything
This is a message to my heart:
I'm sorry that you fell apart
I'm sorry that I let you down
I'm sorry I wasn't around to catch you when you fell

This is a message to a girl:
I hate that you can rule my world
It seems that with a single glance
You leave it all to chance and fall over you

Don't lead me down this road again just to take your final bow
I can hear my heart beat for you and it's getting oh, so loud
Take what you need
Just take everything that I have, it's all yours 'cause I happen to miss you more than anything
And take what you please
I'm right here whenever you need me
All I have, it's all yours, 'cause I happen to miss you more than anything that you could take from me

Your love is like a tattoo in the middle of my chest
It always seems to get the best of me
And I find it hard to breathe
When she's around suddenly I am her clown
Till the world stops, bass drops we can always make a scene
'Cause babe, we're living the dream

Don't lead me down this road again just to take your final bow
I can hear my heart beat for you and it's getting oh, so loud
Take what you need
Just take everything that I have, it's all yours 'cause I happen to miss you more than anything
And take what you please
I'm right here whenever you need me
All I have, it's all yours, 'cause I happen to miss you more than anything that you could take from me
Track Name: A Girl Like Her
The bell's about to ring at 8:37
Another three minutes and you're in heaven
You know that she'll take your breath away
She walks on by without saying a word
She stares right through you, does she even know your name?
Does she even know my name?
You wish for a kiss, you just can't resist
And suddenly she's all that you need
And for a split second, you think you might get it
But she'll never be with me

Because loving her is like trying to count the snowflakes on the ground
Loving her is like wishing on a shooting star
You can't win, you're never gonna make it
Every second you take is another you fall because you'll,
You'll never find the words
No, you'll never find the words, not with a girl like her

You finally gather up the courage to ask that girl to dance
Oh, to dance
Her favorite song is flying through the speakers
You walk straight to the middle of the dance floor and
Wrap your arms around her
What could be better, yeah, what could be better than this?
You wish for a kiss, you just can't resist
I bet that's changed her mind
And for a split second, you think you might get it
But it's just a waste of time

Because loving her is like listening to your favorite song over and over again
Loving her is like watching the sun rise
You can't win, you're never gonna make it
Every second you take is another you fall because you'll,
You'll never find the words
No, you'll never find the words, not with a girl like her

You stare into those brown eyes
And know what's coming up next
She leans in slowly
And you've gotta catch your breath

You wish for a kiss, you just can't resist
She seems to have you in mind
And for a split second, you think you might get it
But you're running out of time

Because loving her is like drowning in the ocean
Loving her is just watching her walk away
You can't win, you're never gonna make it
Every second you take is another you fall because you'll,
You'll never find the words
No, you'll never find the words, not with a girl like her
Track Name: Stay Perfect (My Song for Briona)
I said I'd write a ballad to the world
No more songs about a girl
I said I'd leave tomorrow if she'd leave with me
But she won't and we both know what they don't see

Stay perfect just for me,
I'll stay right here just waiting for you
I'll wait for the day when you come back home but until then I'm all alone
So stay perfect just for me and I'll stay right here just waiting for you

I said I'd write a love song to the world
No more details about that girl
I said I'd say "I'm sorry" if she were around to hear,
But she's not and I'm caught all alone on my own once again..

Stay perfect
Just stay perfect
I know the wait will be worth it
So please stay perfect
Track Name: Wish I Could Hate You
You’ve given up on me, I won’t give up on you.
I’m homesick and heartbroken, and don’t know what to do.
You’re always breaking and stealing hearts
All I can see is you and me, and honestly it’s driving me crazy.
You broke in and stole my heart.

I miss your touch, I miss your taste, I miss the time we used to waste.
I miss that look, I miss those eyes, I miss those days, I miss those nights,
I miss them too, I just wish that I could hate you.

See I’m homesick and heartbroken, all I can do is try to pretend
that you don’t mean anything to me.
I tried for so long, I’m sorry if I’m not that strong,
I’ve written you so many god damned songs, but it’s time for an end,
It’s time time to pretend.

I miss your touch, I miss your taste, I miss the time we used to waste.
I miss that look, I miss those eyes, I miss those days, I miss those nights,
I miss them too, I just wish that I could hate you.

She’s given up, I can’t let go,
She’s all I want, and she knows that without her by my side..
I’m lost with every move she makes.
Those lips make me make mistakes,
but i don’t want to be here anymore.

I miss your touch, I miss your taste, I miss the time we used to waste.
I miss that look, I miss those eyes, I miss those days, I miss those nights,
I miss them too.. I miss your voice, I miss that laugh,
I miss the good times and the bad,
I miss the way you used to say “I love you.”
But I just wish I could hate you.
Track Name: Stephani's Daughter
This one girl,
She had it all figured out
She had everything to tear up this town
She wanted nothing to do with me, but that couldnt keep me away
I saw her in the middle of the street,
And i wondered how to sweep her off her feet
And surprise indeed when I found out that all I needed was her
All I needed was my..

Christi, Christi, don't you know that you're the only thing that keeps me going
Christi, Christi, don't you know that without you I got nothing but..
Christi, Christi, don't you know that you're the only thing I've ever wanted and more
Christi, Christi, don't you know that you are the one I adore.. my one and only.

She noticed the way I looked at her
And I wanted to tell her every word that was on my mind twenty four hours of the time,
But I couldnt bear to say
See I can try to right my wrongs, and I can even try to write this song,
But without her everything seems so useless
Its all useless without my..

Christi, Christi, don't you know that you're the only thing that keeps me going
Christi, Christi, don't you know that without you I got nothing but..
Christi, Christi, don't you know that you're the only thing I've ever wanted and more
Christi, Christi, don't you know that you are the one I adore.. my one and only.

She stole my heart
I gotta catch my breath,
Because I ran all night, just to get it back from her,
And I saw her standing there,
She was stunning and I was breathless..

Christi, Christi, don't you know that you're the only thing that keeps me going
Christi, Christi, don't you know that without you I got nothing but..
Christi, Christi, don't you know that you're the only thing I've ever wanted and more
Christi, Christi, don't you know that you are the one I adore.. my one and only.
Track Name: Ready to be Won
Don't stop, don't stop for a second
Keep it, keep it coming now
I try oh so hard to please you
But you'll never come through

Keep it down for a while pretty young thing
Every second of your time is a story
I need to tell you all the things I want to say
I need to let you know that you belong with me

So don't stop, don't stop for a second
Keep it, keep it coming now
I try oh so hard to please you
But you'll never come through
Come on, come on, you know you want me
I feel it inside of my bones
We need to make this happen fast
Because I'm ready to be won

Well yesterday I broke it, my promise made to you
I swore I'd save you from your heart
And yesterday, I lost it, my note to give to you
It said I loved you from the start
So I'll keep on hoping and keep on wishing for more
I still remember the day that my heart tore
I took a piece but you took one too
Now I see love when I look at you

Now I see love when I look at you
Yes, I see love when I look at you
I see love, and I wish you saw it too
I see love, and I see it in you
