1. MY PAPER HEART

Please just don't play with me
My paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny won't do
Be with me please I beseech you
Simple things, that make you run away
Catch you if I can

Tears fall, down your face
The taste, is something new
Something that
I know moving on is,
Easiest when I am around you.

So bottle up old love,
And throw it out to sea,
Watch it away as you cry
A year has passed
The seasons go

Please just don't play with me
My paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny won't do
Be with me please I beseech you
Simple things, that make you run away
Catch you if I can

Waiting, day to day it goes through
My lips, are sealed for her
My tongue is,
Tied to, a dream of being with you
To settle for less, is not what I prefer

So bottle up old love,
And throw it out to sea,
Watch it away as you cry
A year has passed
The seasons go

Please just don't play with me
My paper heart will bleed
This wait for destiny won't do
Be with me please I beseech you
Simple things, that make you run away
Catch you if I can

Summer time, the nights are so long
The leaves fall down,
and so do I into the arms of a friend
Winter nights
My bedside is cold, for I am gone
And spring blossoms you to me

Summer time, the nights they are so long
The leaves fall down,
and so do I into the arms of a friend
Winter nights
My bedside is cold, for I am gone
And spring blossoms you to me


2. YOUR STAR

She screams when I'm away
She's been gone before.
I worried all the time, why worry anymore?
Now I go, away
Now I know, today

I picked out your star
Turned night to day
A simple whisper from your voice
And I fade away
You wish for love
You pushed me away
Your love for me was everything I need
The air I breathe

She, now she's all alone
Her eyes they drown in tears
Their love was meant to last
But she is blind with fear
Now I go, away
Now I know, today

I picked out your star
Turned night to day
A simple whisper from your voice
And I fade away
You wish for love
You pushed me away
Your love for me was everything I need
The air I breathe

Leave me be
Now I'm free
Love reflecting everything
You want space
I need you to help me see this through

There she goes, there she goes, there she goes

I picked out your star
Turned night to day
A simple whisper from your voice
And I fade away
You wish for love
You pushed me away
Your love for me was everything I need
The air I breathe

I picked out your star
Turned night to day
A simple whisper from your voice
And I fade away
You wish for love
You pushed me away
You're everything to me


3. SWING,SWING

Days swiftly come and go.
I'm dreaming of her
She's seeing other guys
Emotions they stir
The sun is gone.
The nights are long
And I am left while the tears fall.

Did you think that I would cry,
on the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
being alone?
I'll find someone new

[Chorus]
(Swing) Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again.

Wish cast into the sky
I'm moving on
Sweet beginnings do arise
She knows I was wrong
The notes are old,
They bend, they fold
and so do I to a new love.

Did you think that I would cry,
on the phone?
Do you know what it feels like,
being alone?
I'll find someone new

(Swing) Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again

Bury me
(you thought your problems were gone)
Carry me
(away. away, away...)

[Chorus fades till end]
(Swing) Swing, Swing from the tangles of
My heart is crushed by a former love
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again
Complimentary "Swing, Swing" R


4. TIMES STANDS STEEL

Him and her
Life is turned.
The day I knew you would leave
I can barely breathe
Can you hear me scream

[Chorus:]
You thrown in all directions
You epitome of perfection
She's lost her will (she's lost her will)
time is standing still

He walks, her, home
Now he walks alone
The days they turn into years
The eyes they drown in tears

Can you hear me scream

[Chorus]

The way we are the way we were
(It's just a shadow of what's wrong)
The time with you the time is stirred
(I love you for, so long)
The hearts they turn, they turn away
(she says to go please don't you cry)
Love lost was found, night turns to day

[Chorus x2]

Time is standing still


5. ONE MORE SAD SONG

One boy, one girl, two hearts, their world
Time goes by, secrets rise
One more, sad song, tears shed, she's gone
She'd take it back, if she only could

And all the perfect words they seem so wrong,
She's gone
You wish that you could learn to see,
The door is closed and you wish you could be

Alone with you, alone with me
What can I do, I cannot breathe
My heart is torn, for all to see
Alone with you, alone with me.

Best friend, worst thing, she's been, cheating
Friend deceives, she leaves
Last date. She cries, whispers, goodbye
She walks once more, out that door

And all the perfect words they seem so wrong,
She's gone
You wish that you could learn to see,
The door is closed and you wish you could be

Alone with you, alone with me
What can I do, I cannot breathe
My heart is torn, for all to see
Alone with you, alone with me.

Please stay, don't go away
The hardest thing is letting go of you
Please stay, don't go away
The hardest thing is letting go of you
what can I do?

Alone with you, alone with me, what can I do?
I cannot breathe, alone with, alone with,
alone with you, alone with me, what can I do?
I cannot breathe, my heart is torn for all to see,
alone with you, alone with


6. WHY WORRY

I worry, I wonder all the time why worry
It's killing me, forget about it

I whisper, remember what she did
Don't miss her
Set me free, she won't allow it

Angry and gone, and the list goes on and on
If it's love, I will differ, I'm being lost being with her

I can't move on, I can't take it
She, she says we won't ma-a-ake it now
I can't move on, I can't take it
She, she says we won't ma-a-ake it now

Be-lieving, the things I did were wrong
I'm leaving
It fades a-way, forget about it
She's binding, can't do a thing alone
Rewinding
Times before, can't live without it

Angry and gone, and the list goes on and on
If it's love, I will differ, I'm being lost being with her

I can't move on, I can't take it
She, she says we won't ma-a-ake it now
I can't move on, I can't take it
She, she says we won't ma-a-ake it now

I don't know
But you did but you did but yo-ou did
Please don't go
Now my feelings for you they're now lost
'cause we're through anymore
I'll write you , I'll call you
Now

I'm being lost being with her [x2]
I'm being lost
Forget about it

I can't move on, I can't take it
She, she says we won't ma-a-ake it now
I can't move on, I can't take it
She, she says we won't ma-a-ake it now
[Repeat to fade]


7. DON'T LEAVE ME

You're sweet just like the sun
But what happens when the sun doesn't stay?
The night reminds me when you went away (I don't care, I don't care)
Now my mind was pacing, heart is racing contemplating things that I lack
Even though you left me by myself, do I want you back?

Will you stay or will you walk?
will you let go?
Leave me all alone
I'm giving you one more chance
To make things last
Ring around the roses then she'll stay

Leave me once
Leave me twice
Kiss good-bye that will suffice
When you go away
Don't look back
Leave me once and i'll be fine
Leave me twice i'll make you mine
Just one more chance to make it once again

As the days go by, I am asking why did you leave
You left me alone and then you walked out on me (I don't care, I don't care)
Thinking of days, thinking of ways, thinking of things to you that I should say
I wanna be with you and that's the only way

Will you stay or will you walk?
will you let go?
Leave me all alone
I'm giving you one more chance
To make things last
Ring around the roses then she'll stay

Leave me once
Leave me twice
Kiss good-bye that will suffice
When you go away
Don't look back
Leave me once and i'll be fine
Leave me twice i'll make you mine
Just one more chance to make it once again

Don't say good-bye, just dry your eyes
A tear for everything that I did wrong
Don't say goodbye, just dry your eyes
Listen now just try and see me please don't leave me now.

Leave me once
Leave me twice
Kiss good-bye that will suffice
When you go away
Don't look back
Leave me once and i'll be fine
Leave me twice i'll make you mine
Just one more chance to make it once again


8. TOO FAR GONE

should warn you
Things you're feeling, aren't normal now.
Think you need me
It's not easy, let you go some how.

Now we're too far gone,
Hope is such a waste
Every breath you take you give
me the burdens bitter taste

You promise that you'd stay
You say you want to go
Your lips provide a shelter for the
things that i don't know

Please speak slowly
My heart is learning
Teach me heart-ache,
Stop this burning now.

Wishful thinking
Patience shrinking, bliss is far away
North is calling
Now I'm falling, at your feet please stay

Now we're too far gone,
Hope is such a waste
Every breath you take you give
me the burdens bitter taste

You promise that you'd stay
You say you want to go
Your lips provide a shelter for the
things that i don't know

Please speak slowly
My heart is learning
Teach me heart-ache,
Stop this burning now.
[x4]


9. DRIVE AWAY

She's gone away but still they stay together
People call me crazy, crazy
My thoughts progress, I think about forever
My mind tells me maybe, maybe

I wish I could drive away to the sunset
Back to the day that we first met
Only believe the things I wrote
I'll put it in a note, yeah
Cross my t's and dot my i's
Better say hello, don't you dare say goodbye
I'll write "sincerely yours" and sign my name
P.S. I love you, forever and today

Two weeks go by, seems like it's been the weather
The rain falls down - she's crying, crying
My thoughts progress, she thinks about forever
Their hearts are bound - lying, lying

I wish I could drive away to the sunset
Back to the day that we first met
Only believe the things I wrote
I'll put it in a note, yeah
Cross my t's and dot my i's
Better say hello, I'm gonna wave goodbye
I'll write "sincerely yours" and sign my name
P.S. I love you, forever and today

All the heartbreak all the pain
All the words you said in vain
And I'll never be the same

I wish I could drive away to the sunset
Back to the day that we first met
Only believe the things I wrote
I'll put it in a note, yeah
Cross my t's and dot my i's
Better say hello, I'm gonna wave goodbye
I'll write "sincerely yours" and sign my name
P.S. I love you, forever and today

Forever and today
Forever and today
P.S. I love you
Forever and today


10. HAPPY ENDINGS

Time does tell
That even if they say so
She'd be the one that would know
That I did do what I've done
And I wouldn't call it cheating
I'd just say I was leading her on
Why walk while I run a-way

You- you ask me what went wrong
Me- I'll write you this last song
Please- just tell me one way we can win
One- more thing before I go
Two- the one who loves me so
Three- don't make me count to three again

Happy endings
Just what did you do, If you're a dream then come true
Stop pretending
That what you mean isn't what you say
Hopeful dreaming,
Of times before the pain, wishing it was still the same
Loving, leaving
Round and round and round we go again

Walks a-lone, have often lead to thinking
My love for you is sinking to what seems an all time low
or high, the limits' never ending,
And don't you know I'm sending
There's no venture I won't go
For you

You- you ask me what went wrong
Me- I'll write you this last song
Please- just tell me one way we can win
One- more thing before I go
Two- the one who loves me so
Three- don't make me count to three again

Happy endings
Just what did you do, If you're a dream then come true
Stop pretending
That what you mean isn't what you say
Hopeful dreaming,
Of times before the pain, wishing it was still the same
Loving, leaving
Round and round and round we go again

She walks away, she talks away
She walks away
She walks away, she talks away
Away, away...

Happy endings
Just what did you do, If you're a dream then come true
Stop pretending
That what you mean isn't what you say
Hopeful dreaming,
Of times before the pain, wishing it was still the same
Loving, leaving
Round and round and round we go again

Happy endings
Just what did you do, If you're a dream then come true
Stop pretending
That what you mean isn't what you say
Hopeful dreaming,
Of times before the pain, wishing it was still the same
Loving, leaving


11. THE LAST SONG

This may be the last thing that I write for long
Can you hear me smiling when I sing this song, for you and only you

As I leave will you be someone to say good-bye
As I leave will you be someone to wipe your eye
My foot is out the door, and you can't stop me now

You wanted the best, it wasn't me, will you give it back
Now I'll take the lead, when there's no more room to make it grow
I'll see you again, you'll pretend you're naive, is this what you want
Is this what you need, how you end up let me know.

As I go, remember all the simple things you know,
My mind is just a crutch and I still hope, that you will miss me when
I'm gone
This is the last song

The hearts start breaking as the year is gone
The dream's beginning and the time rolls on
It seems so surreal, now I sing it.
Somehow I knew that it would be this way,
Somehow I knew that it would slowly fade.
Now I am gone, just try and stop me now.

You wanted the best, it wasn't me, will you give it back
Now I'll take the lead, when there's no more room to make it grow
I'll see you again, you'll pretend you're naive, is this what you want
Is this what you need, how you end up let me know.

As I go, remember all the simple things you know,
My mind is just a crutch and I still hope, that you will miss me when
I'm gone
This is the last song

And will you need me now, you'll find a way somehow
You want it too, I want it too.

As I go, remember all the simple things you know,
My mind is just a crutch and I still hope, that you will miss me when
I'm gone
This is the last song
[repeat 2x]
