Track Name: Caught Up In A Feeling
CAUGHT UP IN A FEELING

I'm so intoxicated
My head is spinning around
Is this what everybody's talking about, girl?
I never wanna come down

'Cause my heart's been rearranged
And everything has changed

I'm floating up in the sky
I'm so high
Caught up in a feeling
I'm under your spell
Can't you tell
You've got me believing in forever
Caught up in a feeling tonight

Hold me up I'm so dizzy
Got X's over my eyes
I never thought that it could happen to me, girl
What a lovely surprise

And I finally crossed the line
I've gotta make you mine

Start the engine on my heart
And I'm headed for the stars
Track Name: Ready For Something Good
READY FOR SOMETHING GOOD

Dark storm clouds in my head
Gotta fight to get outta bed
Wanna pull the covers up and hide
So tired of the misery
Life is getting the best of me
But today is gonna be the day

I'm ready for something good
I know it's bound to happen
I'm ready for something good
I can tell it won't be long
I'm ready for something good
And I'll be the last one laughing
'Cause a better day
A better day is waiting for me

Pick myself up off the floor
Cup o' coffee and I'm out the door
I guess I'll take it one day at a time
Fake a smile and stand up straight
Try my best not to show up late
'Cause today things could go my way

Soon I will be flying so high
Things will come so easily
I'll kiss all of my troubles bye-bye
'Cause that's the way it's meant to be
Right?
Track Name: A Girl That I Like
A GIRL THAT I LIKE

There's a girl that I like
And she's coming by at 12
Until then I'll be counting down the time
And we kissed a few times
I'm not sure what it means
But ever since she's always on my mind

And any minute she'll be comin' down that hall
It seems so innocent but it's really not at all

There's a girl that I like
I'm not sure how to tell her but I'm doin' it tonight
There's a girl that I like
I don't know what we're headed for but she's the girl that I like

And the second that she leaves
My stomach's all in knots
I walk in circles cursing at the wall
If I stare at my phone for another hour or two
Maybe somehow I can make her call

And all my friends say that I just ain't bein' me
I'm such an awful mess and everyone can see

I thought I'd felt like this before but I
I've never felt like this before and I
I wanna feel like this forevermore
She's the girl that I like

Is she the one that I will love 'til I grow old?
Or just one more disaster waiting to unfold?
Track Name: Don't F**k It Up
DON'T FUCK IT UP

We got the kind of love that people write songs about
And in the morning when I wake up I'm so happy that it freaks me out

And I've never felt this way
We're perfect in every single way

Don't fuck it up
Don't fuck it up
We got a good thing going
Baby don't fuck it up

Your kiss is on my list and I don't ever wanna cross it off
And once you get me g-g-going girl you make it impossible to stop, yeah

And I know you feel it too
It doesn't have to be too good to be true

(Baby baby don't let me down)
(Listen to me I ain't kidding around)

This is awesome and you know it
So baby try not to blow it
'Cause this'll only happen once or twice

(I'm sorry if it sounds a little profane)
(No other words really say it the same)
Track Name: Biography
BIOGRAPHY

Pretend I don't exist
Deny we ever kissed
Pass me off as a big mistake
But I'm the best one that you'll ever make

Take back all your friends
Tie up your loose ends
Tell the world that you feel alright
But I know it keeps you up at night

You can write me out of your biography
But you can't take me out of your memory
Your fact is fiction and we both know
I'm the best part of your story
I'm the best part of your story

Play your childish game
Refuse to speak my name
Hold your pride like a loaded gun
But you're not foolin' anyone

A dream you can't escape
The tale's right on the tape
You had my love, you just watched it die
And you always had an alibi

Pretend I don't exist
Pretend you wanted this

We're the best part of your story

No one will ever love you
The way I used to love you
No one will ever love you
No one will ever love you
Track Name: Whoever's Around
WHOEVER'S AROUND

You don't love me, you just love whoever's around, baby
Don't think I don't see you lovin' everybody in town, baby
The look in your eye is deceiving
'cause as soon as I am leaving
You find a new me, you just love whoever's around, baby

Well the first time we met, I thought we had a special attraction
It didn't take long to get, I was just another distraction, yeah
The beautiful lies you're tellin'
And they're buying what you're sellin'
But soon they're gonna see, you just love whoever's around, baby

(Whoever's around)
Someone to listen
(Whoever's around)
To pay attention
And tell you that you're pretty
Make you smile when you feel down
Whoever's around, baby

And it's an endless war you're fighting
'Cause sleeping alone is frightening
And you'll never be free, you just love whoever's around, baby

When you're lookin' for whoever
I won't be around, baby
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Go Home If You're Not There
I DON'T WANNA GO HOME IF YOU'RE NOT THERE

I drive these streets for hours
Destination: I don't care
You've left your trail of memories everywhere
There's no way I'm going back now
So tired of feeling bad
In a house full of cruel reminders of what we had

Don't wanna fall asleep in the bed where we made love
Don't wanna wake up all alone again
How can I carry on?
You're all I'm dreamin' of
I don't wanna go home
I don't wanna go home if you're not there

Your dress hangs in the closet
And your makeup's on the shelf
Being there alone without you is a living hell
So I'll drive these streets for hours
Watch the sunset turn to black
I won't turn these wheels around 'til you're comin' back

Don't wanna spend the night in the room where we broke up
Don't wanna wake up all alone again
How can I carry on?
You're all I'm dreamin' of
I don't wanna go home
I don't wanna go home if you're not there

The ghost of you is haunting me
And your voice is in my head
Time won't make it fade away
Track Name: Tryin' To Be Good
TRYIN' TO BE GOOD

No, I can't go with you down to the bar
To have a drink or two
No, I can't go with you down to the bar
I've got work to do
But if you ask me again tomorrow night
There's a pretty good chance I would
But tonight, I'm tryin' to be good

No I can't come over to lie in your bed
You know I got a wife
No I can't come over to lie in your bed
It just wouldn't be right
But if you ask me again tomorrow night
There's a pretty good chance I would
But tonight, I'm tryin' to be good

Why do I always do the wrong thing?
Why does it have to feel so right?
Maybe I'll find a new direction
If I can just make it through tonight

No I can't try one of those little pills
I'm sure they're really great
No I can't try one of those little pills
It's gonna have to wait
But if you ask me again tomorrow night
There's a really good chance I would
But tonight
Tonight
Tonight, I'm tryin' to be good
Track Name: Beth
BETH

Beth I hear you callin'
But I can't come home right now
Me and the boys are playin'
And we just can't find the sound
Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them callin'
Oh Beth what can I do?
Beth what can I do?

You say you feel so empty
That our house just ain't a home
I'm always somewhere else
And you're always there alone
Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them callin'
Oh Beth what can I do?
Beth what can I do?

Beth I know you're lonely
And I hope you'll be alright
'Cause me and the boys'll be playin'
All night
Track Name: If You Don't Love Me, You Gotta Let Me Go (feat. Kelly Jones)
IF YOU DON'T LOVE ME YOU GOTTA LET ME GO

I'm packing all my t-shirts up in boxes
I got my guitar, you can have the rest
I'm leavin' but this isn't what I wanted

Don't start cryin'
It's too late for a show
You knew just what I needed all along
If you don't love me, you gotta let me go
My best just wasn't good enough, I'm gone

I heard you found a new heart to hold on to
I guess you had no problem movin' on
I had no idea how desperately I'd want you

I offered you my blue skies
All you gave me back was wind and rain
We always got the verse right
But we kept getting stuck on the refrain

I'm tryin' to live my life and just be happy
And you still know just how to ruin my day
You don't want anybody else to have me

Your best just wasn't good enough
Track Name: When It's Quiet
WHEN IT'S QUIET

When it's quiet
I can finally think
All of my cares float away
When it's quiet

When it's quiet
Life is so nice to live
There's not enough hours in the day
When it's quiet
When it's quiet

But there's not a peaceful moment in this town
Noisy people follow me around
And I'm getting scared I'm gonna lose my mind
Unless there's somewhere quiet I can find

When it's quiet
Music plays in my head
My own private symphony
