Track Name: Oxygen
Where did the air go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
Got lost in the glow
Of an ember, and I remember when
I brought the matches, you cut the trees
But when the smoke came up we forgot somehow we had to make room to breathe

This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
Oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen we need oxygen

Your twigs and tinder aren’t enough spark the cinders
This flame is suffocating fast, it won’t last
Between the sheets we had the friction and the heat
But we let the fumes engulf us in a breathless, airless room

This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
Oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen we need oxygen

You strike a match, and let it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that you need air to breathe
Let’s strike a match and watch it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that we need air to breathe, to breathe
We’ll strike a match and let it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that we need air to breathe
I’ll strike a match and let it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that we need air to breathe

This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
Oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen
Oxygen, oxygen, can we fix what we broke again? oxygen, oxygen, we need oxygen
Track Name: Black & White
Touch me, baby don’t touch me
Don’t trace your fingers down my neck
Hold me, baby don’t hold me
Gravity won’t pass this test

I could say that I’m okay; I could swear that I’m all right
But this ain’t black and white
I can see through all your lies; you only love me at night
But this ain’t black and white
No this ain’t black and white

Kiss me, baby don’t kiss me
‘Cause your lips stain mine like a black tattoo
And miss me, please don’t miss me
‘Cause I’m afraid I’ll miss you too

I could say that I’m okay; I could swear that I’m all right
But this ain’t black and white
I can see through all your lies; you only love me at night
But this ain’t black and white
No this ain’t black and white

This ain’t wrong or right, not black or white; we’re in the gray
So I can’t let you go, can’t take the pain, ask you to stay
If you’d only hurt me, I’d tell you to leave
But since you always loved me, I’m still begging please

I could say that I’m okay; I could swear that I’m all right
But this ain’t black and white
I can see through all your lies; you only love me at night
But this ain’t black and white
So touch me, baby don’t touch me
Hold me, baby don’t hold me
Kiss me, baby don’t kiss me
And miss me, please don’t miss me
I could say that I’m okay; I could swear that I’m all right
But this ain’t black and white
I can see through all your lies; you only love me at night
But this ain’t black and white
It’s never just black and white
Track Name: Irresistible
I woke up on the living room couch with my
Phone in my hand and you in my head
8 AM - how’d I sleep in again?
I should make a pot of coffee, but I’ll go back to bed
This whole room smells like sweat and regret
But I know tomorrow night we’ll just do it again ‘cause

Like dark chocolate after midnight
I know that you’ll keep me up all night
Like gossip spreading in a high school
‘Round and around and around we go
Like a gambler in Vegas
You’re the token I can’t resist
You’re my bad habit, but I gotta have it
Oh you’re irresistible

Tried to quit you before when I packed up a
Suitcase of memories and walked out the door but you’re
Woven tight in the quilt of my mind ‘cause
You’re the prettiest color that I ever did find
I’m addicted to the sound of your name
But I know by the morning I’ll be half insane ‘cause

Like dark chocolate after midnight
I know that you’ll keep me up all night
Like gossip spreading in a high school
‘Round and around and around we go
Like a gambler in Vegas
You’re the token I can’t resist
You’re my bad habit, but I gotta have it
Oh you’re irresistible

Biting my lip or telling white lies
Don’t give me half as big a rush as when I look in your eyes ‘cause

Like dark chocolate after midnight
I know that you’ll keep me up all night
Like gossip spreading in a high school
‘Round and around and around we go
Like a gambler in Vegas
You’re the token I can’t resist
You’re my bad habit, but I gotta have it
Oh you’re irresistible
Track Name: Other Girl
Baby look me in the eyes
Can you say you never lied?
‘Cause I can taste her on your lips
And it makes me wish we never kissed
Someone’s lighting up your phone
Hey, I’m not stupid, boy I know we’re not alone
Someone’s lighting up your eyes tonight

Hold me in your arms
Before you leave and take my warmth
Say your heart is mine
Baby fool me one more time
Tell me once again how I’m your whole wide world
Before you go and tell your other girl

I could act like I don’t know
And we could turn this whole charade into a full blown show
But I can feel her in our bed
And I know that’s not my lipstick, boy, it’s not my shade of red
Now the battle’s in your hands
‘Cause what once was holy ground became a wasteland
But I don’t want to have to fight this war

Hold me in your arms
Before you leave and take my warmth
Say your heart is mine
Baby fool me one more time
Tell me once again how I’m your whole wide world
Before you go and tell your other girl

Put your lips on mine, make it our final kiss goodbye

Hold me in your arms
Before you leave and take my warmth
Say your heart is mine
Baby fool me one last time
Tell me once again how I’m your whole wide world
Before you go and tell your other girl
I’m tired of always being the other girl
Track Name: Do You Think About Me
Hey boy, I’ve got a million little questions for you
What’s your middle name? Yeah, tell me, what’s your story?
What’s your momma like? Is your sister nice?
What’s your favorite coffee order in the morning?
Could you tell me all your thoughts on global warming?
Whose hand did you hold last? Well, I would never ask, but I want to

I’ve got a few things on my mind, but mostly you
I spend my whole day wondering if you’re dreaming about me too
When I lay down at night to try to catch some sleep
The biggest question on my mind….
Is do you think about me?

In your opinion, what’s the greatest record?
Kissing in the rain, hey baby, would you ever?
Do any movies make you cry? How do I make you mine?

I’ve got a few things on my mind, but mostly you
I spend my whole day wondering if you’re dreaming about me too
When I lay down at night to try to catch some sleep
The biggest question on my mind….
Is do you think about me...

When you’re driving home on the highway?
Don’t you know I wish you’d come my way?
Swear I could get drunk on the sound of you saying my name, ‘cause

I’ve got a few things on my mind, but mostly you
I spend my whole day wondering if you’re dreaming about me too

I’ve got a few things on my mind, but mostly you
I spend my whole day wondering if you’re dreaming about me too
When I lay down at night to try to catch some sleep
The biggest question on my mind….
Is do you think about me? Do you think about me? Do you think about me?
Track Name: Your Side of the Bed
I wish you’d call, it’s been awhile since you left home
I know that you’ve got things to see, places to roam
But I remember when you toasted you and me
And we dared to dream of all that we could be

Your side of the bed still whispers to me late at night
This imprint lying next to me can’t ever hold me tight
These sheets are wrapped around me, I pull memories from their thread
But everyday I wake up cold on your side of the bed
Everyday I wake up cold on your side of the bed

Still hear you humming down the hallway to our room
And in the dark sometimes I see your silhouette
Reach out to touch you and it all just fades to black
I know it’s wrong, but, god, I miss the time we had

Your side of the bed still whispers to me late at night
This imprint lying next to me can’t ever hold me tight
These sheets are wrapped around me, I pull memories from their thread
But everyday I wake up cold on your side of the bed
Everyday I wake up cold on your side of the bed

Guess every morning I’ll get up and I’ll get dressed
Go through the motions, pretend I’m not a mess
But when the evening comes I know I’ll think of you
God, what I wouldn’t give to have you in this room

Your side of the bed still whispers to me late at night
This imprint lying next to me can’t ever hold me tight
These sheets are wrapped around me, I pull memories from their thread
But everyday I wake up cold on your side of the bed
I playback when you left me, regret the words unsaid
And spend my days and nights avoiding your side of the bed
I waste my days and nights just wishing you were in this bed
Track Name: I Want You Back
Tell me have I been fair to you?
Looking back I only wanted to be near to you my dear
I reached out a hand to you
Tried to take a stand for you
But you always disappeared, well

I lost my mind, lost my way
I lost you like the others who I begged so long to stay
And you only remind me of the fact
That everything I lose I won’t get back
I want you back, I want you back

Remember when we walked the beach
Counting shells and watching waves crash on the shore, when I was yours
Now whenever I get sad
I take out the shells and relive memories
Well there’s no remedy for this ‘cause

I lost my mind, lost my way
I lost you like the others who I begged so long to stay
And you only remind me of the fact
That everything I lose I won’t get back
I want you back, I want you back

Do you remember the way our laughter rang in perfect harmony?
Do you remember the day you promised me that you would never leave?
Guess our forever had to end

I lost my mind, lost my way
I lost you like the others who I begged so long to stay
And you only remind me of the fact
That everything I lose I won’t get back
I want you back, I want you back
I want you back, I want you back
Track Name: Framed, Faded, Forgotten
It’s funny how photographs only capture the best
A pretty smile, a perfect dress, but now my heart’s a mess
I guess that’s why people sometimes burn their memories
But I just can’t strike the match on this one of you and me

We’re framed pretty like a picture hanging on a wall
But we’re faded like a tan line in the fall
And worst of all, forgotten
You were looking at me, I was looking at you
In that Polaroid we ignored the view
But now it’s all forgotten
Framed, faded, and forgotten

What was I thinking digging up this photo book?
Last year I locked it up and swore I’d never look
But then your birthday came and I thought it might be sweet
To sneak a peek of what we had before you had to cheat

We’re framed pretty like a picture hanging on a wall
But we’re faded like a tan line in the fall
And worst of all, forgotten
In that Polaroid we ignored the view
But now it’s all forgotten
Framed, faded, and forgotten

Damn these memories of love
I wish that I could rip them up

We’re framed pretty like a picture hanging on a wall
But we’re faded like a tan line in the fall
And worst of all, forgotten, forgotten
You were looking at me, I was looking at you
In that Polaroid we ignored the view
But now it’s all forgotten
Framed, faded, and forgotten
Track Name: Without You
I had green eyes that twinkled like stars
A smile like a firework shines in the dark
Dare devil, in love with the world
But you came along, now I don’t know that girl
You changed the rules of the game
Now there’s no way to settle the score
You changed the sound of my name
And I don’t know myself anymore

‘Cause I’m harder since I’ve loved you
A little rougher around the edges too
I’ve learned to keep my guard up, don’t trust so easy now
I lost who I was and now I’ve gotta find her somehow
I don’t know what I want, I don’t know what to do
But I know that I’ve got to get back to me without you

For too long I gave you my all
I trusted you, so I let myself fall
But you stumbled, let me hit the ground
And I was so blind, I let you hold me down
You changed the rules of the game
Now there’s no way to settle the score
You changed the sound of my name
And I don’t know myself anymore

‘Cause I’m harder since I’ve loved you
A little rougher around the edges too
I’ve learned to keep my guard up, don’t trust so easy now
I lost who I was and now I’ve gotta find her somehow
I don’t know what I want, I don’t know what to do
But I know that I’ve got to get back to me without you ooooooo

I need somebody who knows me to hold me, wrap me up tight, take away all the lonely
I need a map to get back to the girl that I was

‘Cause I’m harder since I’ve loved you
A little rougher around the edges too
I’ve learned to keep my guard up, don’t trust so easy now
I lost who I was and now I’ve gotta find her somehow
I don’t know what I want, I don’t know what to do
But I know that I’ve got to get back to me without you

I had green eyes that twinkled like stars
A smile like a firework shines in the dark
Track Name: Ours
Sometimes this world can look like one big hopeless place
With darkness filling every room we can’t find love or grace
And I can try but I know I can’t stop the wars
But I feel safe, I see the light with my eyes locked to yours, so

Darling swear to me that I’m the one you’ll never leave
And we can write it in the stars
I can promise you that I will be forever true
Your arms are wrapped around my heart
Could heal the world with love like ours
Ours

Some people spend their whole lives searching for a sign
They waste the nights, they waste the days, they’re wasting precious time, well
There’re a lot of things that I may never understand
But I don’t need the answers ‘cause my hand is in your hand

Darling swear to me that I’m the one you’ll never leave
And we can write it in the stars
I can promise you that I will be forever true
Your arms are wrapped around my heart
Could heal the world with love like ours
Ours

So if you ever feel alone, remember I am by your side
And if you want to change the world, just know your smile changes mine

Darling swear to me that I’m the one you’ll never leave
And we can write it in the stars
I can promise you that I will be forever true
Your arms are wrapped around my heart
Could heal the world with love like ours
Ours
