Track Name: Secrets
I’ve got your secrets playing out of my radio now
I’ve got your secrets playing out of my old stereo now
I’ve got your secrets coming out of my mouth right now
Baby, it’s a cruel, cruel world when your secret’s in town

She’s got those lips like sugar, baby I don’t blame you somehow
She’s got those eyes like summer, baby I don’t wonder somehow
She’s got those lips like sugar but someone should’ve told you by now
That baby, it’s a cruel, cruel world when your secret’s in town

You’re not just lying to me honey, you are lying to yourself
You’re really lying to me honey, and you are lying to yourself
You keep trying to tell me that she don’t mean nothing to you now
But baby it’s a cruel, cruel world when your secret’s in town

Stop, wait a minute
Couldn’t give me your time
Stop, wait, I was caught up on the end of your line
Stop, wait a minute
Couldn’t give me your time
Stop, wait, I was caught up on the end of your line
Stop, wait a minute
Couldn’t give me your time
Stop, wait, I was caught up on the end of your line
Stop, wait a minute
Couldn’t give me your time
Stop, wait a minute
Girls aren’t getting in line

I’ve got your secrets playing out of my radio now
I’ve got your secrets playing out of my old stereo now
I’ve got your secrets coming out of my mouth right now
Baby, it’s a cruel, cruel world when your secret’s in town
Baby, it’s a cruel, cruel world when your secret’s in town
Baby, it’s a cruel, cruel world when your secret’s in town
Track Name: More
I’ve got a whole lot more of me that you don’t know
But it feels like you know more than I have ever told before
I opened up the gates I wasn’t sure would let you in
Cause I sealed them shut so long ago, I wasn’t sure you’d win

But now we’re in so deep
I think that I forget to breathe
The ground’s under my feet
But I don’t know where it is
It scares the life out of me
That I will let you go too soon
Cause I’ve still got so much, so much
So much more to give

There’s still a whole lot more of me that you don’t know
But if we made it this far already, I guess we don’t have far to go
I fought it all my life but I am ready now to start
I’ll give you my heart, but I need to believe
That you’re not gonna break it apart

Cause now we’re in so deep
I think that I forget to breathe
The ground’s under my feet
But I don’t know where it is
It scares the life out of me
That I will let you go too soon
Cause I’ve still got so much, so much
So much more to give

Cause I’ve still got so much, so much
So much more to give

So much more to give
So much more
More

Now we’re in so deep
I think that I forget to breathe
The ground’s under my feet
But I don’t know where it is
Scares the life out of me
That I will let you go too soon
Cause I’ve still got so much, so much
So much more

And we’re in so deep
I think that I forget to breathe
The ground’s under my feet
Don’t know where it is
Scares the life out of me
That I will let you go too soon
Cause I’ve still got so much, so much
So much more to give

So much more to give
So much more to give
Track Name: Sitting Here
It’s a long story
I don’t want to bore you with the details
But now feels like the right time to talk
It’s a long story
Somehow gets longer, the longer I wait
To let it all out, and let it all go

And someday I’ll sit here
And tell you how it feels like a mess
When you’re out of my mess
And someday I’ll sit here
And talk about the times
When my heart wouldn’t stop yelling your name
But today I’ll sit here
And watch the walls around me just fall down to the ground
And don’t for a minute think I’m gonna walk away

It’s a long story
And I won’t, I won’t bore you with the details
Cause now it’s all long gone
And I don’t want to keep going back
Cause now it’s a new story
Even though sometimes I don’t how to move past
But I hold the pen
And it’s my turn to write

And someday I’ll sit here
And tell you how it feels like a mess
When you’re out of my mess
And someday I’ll sit here
And talk about the times
When my heart wouldn’t stop yelling your name
But today I’ll sit here
And watch the walls around me just fall down to the ground
But don’t for a minute think I’m, I’m gonna walk away

And someday I’ll sit here
And tell you how it feels like a mess
When you’re out of my mess
Someday I’ll sit here
And talk about the times
When my heart, it wouldn’t stop yelling your name
But today I’ll sit here
And watch the walls around me just fall down to the ground
But don’t for a minute think I’m gonna walk away

Don’t for a minute think I’m
Think I’m gonna walk away
I’m not gonna walk away
Someday, I’ll be sitting here
Track Name: Stay
You’re getting down on yourself
You wanna know where we stand
You say you’re getting lonely
And you’re holding out for something else
Well I don’t know what to tell you
I don’t know if it’s forever
But I’m not saying that it’s never
It’s just our private adventure

Go on, stay
If you think we’ve got it alright
If you wanna hang under the moonlight, darling
You’ve got me right where you want me to be
Nobody wants to be alone here
We can keep each other company
You’ve got me right where you want me to be

You’ve got that cute little smile
That I keep wanting to see
I am feeling like I wanna stay
And darling, I won’t say you need to leave
But you wanna know the next step?
Well honey, I would say it’s right here
Just exactly where we are right now
I’ll be here in the morning

Go on, stay
If you think we’ve got it alright
If you wanna hang under the moonlight, darling
You’ve got me right where you want me to be
Nobody wants to be alone here
We can keep each other company
You’ve got me right where you want me to be

Take another step towards me now
You can hold your breath, or turn around
I don’t know if we will fly, or fall

Go on, stay
If you think we’ve got it alright
If you wanna hang under the moonlight, darling
You’ve got me right where you want me to be
Nobody wants to be alone here
We can keep each other company
You’ve got me right where you want me to be
Track Name: The Start
Standing at a road
Split in two
No one told me what to do
Moving slow
Standing still
Feeling like a fool
But with nowhere left to go
Have to stand and face the song
Cause every word that’s already been written
I am meant to sing along

And one step back
Doesn’t really take me far
But maybe if I change my point of view
I’ll be fine to face the truth
Maybe a little bit further away
Is where I’ll stop blaming my poor old heart
I’ll call this the start

Holding on to hope
Split in two
No one’s even got a clue
Far away
Back in time
I had only one thing to fear
But with nowhere, with nowhere left to go
I have to stand and face the song
Cause every word that I have already written
I’m trying to sing along

And one step, one step back
Doesn’t really take me far
But maybe if I change my point of view
I’ll be fine to face the truth
Maybe a little bit further away
Is where I’ll stop blaming my poor old heart
I’ll call this the start
I’ll call this the start
I’ll call this the start
