Time Bomb 04:31
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

I Do 04:15
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

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

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

Ghosts 05:13
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
