Track Name: Time Bomb
You lay down your library book
give me that second to last look
I smile cause you have got a way
You wanta make your mark
I think I saw a spark
was just a needle in the hay

hey hey

I got a new song
It's called time bomb
and now it won't be long
cause it's a time bomb
and when our paths crossed
I could tell that you were lost
I didn't know that bomb
was ready to go off

When my workday's through
you're in my living room
your boots are hanging off the couch
but when I see you at the show
you act like you don't know
you've watched TV with me
you've watched TV with me

I got a new song
It's called time bomb
and now it won't be long
cause it's a time bomb
and when our paths crossed
I could tell that you were lost
I didn't know that bomb
was ready to go off

You check my fake ID
oh won't you look at me
it looks like you can read
my name my name my name
and when you walk on by
what did you say I sigh
I'm sorry it's loud in here
I'm sorry it's loud in here

I got a new song
It's called time bomb
and now it won't be long
cause it's a time bomb
and when our paths crossed
I could tell that you were lost
I didn't know that bomb
was ready to go off

Can I take you to a quieter place?

There are places
we can go
there are edges
we can fly off road
but if you stay here
I can drive
because your love
it keeps me alive

time bomb
and now it won't be long
time bomb
and now it won't be
Track Name: I Do
When all the stories have been told, you make me hot, they make me
cold. So, take your shot and then let's
Roll. I've got twenty five minutes in the meter.
If you won't let me finish, at least make me
A believer

I've got five on tonight as our favorite dance,
One foot in front of the other, and
Steam on the windows, the sun goes down
I do. I do.

I swear I meant to do all that I did to you. Take your chance, or I'll go where the wind blows the answer now. I do I do

Wait don't turn out the light I may come to bed in five. I gave all I had to the day, and this last loose ending is fate. Set your bag down next to the door; I don't have a goal you're nothing but scorrrrrrre.

I thought that fifteen minutes was the maximum flirtation. It seems like you are in it for the rest of our vacation. I'm clearing out my calendar, appointments out the window. Kinda like a talent or a joint, one hit and then go. I pass it to you like a ball, it's sporty when you got me. Nothing like it, 42's the answer, boy, I'm bossy. I'm saucy. You watch me. Haha you watch me

You watch me watch you I do, and I'm so with you, 42. It's early but I get the sense it's already tomorrow when. The time's the world it's ours a star I saw it, too, I wished on you. I bet you mighta guessed it, and when I aim I never miss, aquainted with the best. It's familiar as breathing. It's normal as air. I want you. Keep dreaming, and I'll take, the dare

I'm saucy. You watch me. Hahah, you watch me

I've got five on tonight as our favorite dance,
One foot in front of the other, and
Steam on the windows, the sun goes down
I do. I do.

I swear I meant to do all that I did to you. Take your chance, or I'll go where the wind blows the answer now. I do I do

When all the stories have been told, you make me hot, they make me
cold. So, take your shot and then let's
Roll. I've got twenty five minutes in the meter
Track Name: Bones Like Bricks
Before you start to worry
Let me tell you my side of the story
Last night I didn't see no bed
Don't you listen to what they said
Cause you're older now girl
You don't wear those tears so well
You're like lightning in a bottle baby
When it comes you can never tell

I don't need no ammunition
or guns to make you stay
Cause when I exhale
I blow you away

Looking through the mirrored glass
Tell me what you see in the past
This life ain't for the weak
This life ain't for the weak
but these bones are like bricks
these joints are like mortar
my head is thick
these bones are like bricks

I don't need no ammunition
or guns to make you stay
Cause when I exhale
I blow you away

Don't betray it
I won't say it
Hey, lets not take sides
I invite it
I won't try it
It could be the biggest lie

Beyond the circus act
Behind the clowns
I got a big idea
You top it now
Upside down

Before you start to worry
Let me tell you three sides of a story
First one I just don't know
Second one it may be so
Third one it's just a tease
it's the one where you see my leave

But these bones are like bricks

These bones are like bricks

I don't need no ammunition
or guns to make you stay
Cause when I exhale
I blow you away
Track Name: Last Thing (I Want You To Say)
Already over the line and then push it just a little more
Because it's Saturday night and you've never felt like this before
I don't what we're doing but I know that it can't be good
You got your one track mind on the move just like I knew you would

But you know that I want to hear you sing
you just gotta tell me one more thing

And it's the last thing I want you to say
it's the last thing I want you to say
And I don't listen well anyway
and it's the last thing, but I don't listen

And when you're tired, you can take my bed
and if you need to drive my car then I will walk instead
you need some money, well I got a job
and I would give ya give ya all that you want if it would get you to stop

But you know that I want to hear you sing
you just gotta tell me bout one more thing

And it's the last thing I want you to say
it's the last thing I want you to say
And I don't listen well anyway
and it's the last thing, but I don't listen


you just gotta tell me bout one more thing

And it's the last thing I want you to say
it's the last thing I want you to say
And I don't listen well anyway
and it's the last thing, but I don't listen
Track Name: Ghosts
I remember when we met
the Montagues the Capulets
I am here so take the bet
I can't replace it
Messages through atmosphere
there's all this pink and blue and clear
and I'm afraid the ghosts are here
and they can't help me now

So come in pass out shadows of doubt
these are my walls
and you walk through them
laughing no arms
sounding alarms
calling and falling from the tree out in the yard

It's alright you see them at night without the faces
they reveal their light if you are looking in the right places
but will you let them in

I remember when we met
the Montagues the Capulets
I am here so take the bet
I can't replace it
Messages through atmosphere
there's all this pink and blue and clear
and I'm afraid the ghosts are here
and they can't help me now

It's alright you see them at night without the faces
they reveal their light if you are looking in the right places
too dark to see so who scared who
do you know me do I know you
and will you let me in

The ghosts are here so be more clear
they're watching while you disappear
the ghosts are here but they're not clear
they vanish and they reappear

I remember when we met
the Montagues the Capulets
I am here so take the bet
I can't replace it
Messages through atmosphere
there's all this pink and blue and clear
and I'm afraid the ghosts are here
and they can't help me now
