Track Name: Competition
Competition
never was my strong point,
so just listen
to what I've got to say.
Cause I know and you know that
You and me could be something better,
but there's gotta be a better way.

I'm not looking to break up any weddings,
I'm just betting that the two of you won't stay.
'Cause I know and you know that
you and me just look good together,
but there's gotta be a better way.

I know we're just in the beginning,
but it's been feeling like the end.
I never had much luck at winning,
but I can't stand to lose again.

(Woooo)
You've got me now,
(Woooo)
you've got me now.

Hesitation's
been leading this to failure.
Should I be waiting
for you to make the play?
'Cause I know and you know that
it just comes down to now or never,
but there's got to be a better way.

This is it now,
I'm waiting for your answer,
but I'm not sure
exactly what you'll say.
But I know and you know that
I could be the one to stick with you forever,
through all our bad or better days.

And I've been staring at the ceiling
with this song stuck in my mind.
I've gotta know just what you're feeling,
'cause we're running out of time.

(Woooo)
You've got me now, you've got me now.
(Woooo)
You've got me now, you've got me now.

(Woooo) You've got me, you've got me,
didn't take you to long and you've got me!
(Woooo) You've got me, you've got me,
what more do you want,'cause you've got ME!
(Woooo) You've got me, you've got me,
didn't take you to long but you've got me!
(Woooo) You've got me, you've got me,
what more do you want, 'cause you've got ME!
Track Name: I'm Ready
Hey, you feelin' something?
I say I'm all for jumping
off this cliff. Yeah, this is it,
or could be, anyway.

Hey, don't act suprised.
I say let's take the dive
off this cliff. Yeah, this is it,
or could be, anyway.

I'm ready if you're ready.
Well, I'm ready, are you ready?
'Cause my heart is breaking
while you're taking your time.
No telling where we're going,
but I'm going if you're going.
Just tell me, baby,
am I wasting my time?

So, you're far away and
I make it through the day, but
head on my pillow
and I'm missing you to death.

Dreams can't get me close
to you and neither can the coast.
These beaches are no remedy
for missing you to death.

I'm ready if you're ready.
Well, I'm ready, are you ready?
'Cause my heart is breaking
while you're taking your time.
No telling where we're going,
but I'm going if you're going.
Just tell me, baby,
am I wasting my time?

And if you go
then let me know,
'cause I'll be right behind you. Now
is not the time to change your mind.
Are you in or are you out?

Say yes.

I'm ready if you're ready.
Well, I'm ready, are you ready?
'Cause my heart is breaking
while you're taking your time.
No telling where we're going,
but I'm going if you're going,
and I'm fine with waiting
while you're taking your time.
Track Name: Number Six
This is to you.
How you always wanted to know what I was thinking.
To my phone bill,
and all those late night conversations.
To the number six,
because I had you on speed dial.
To my backyard
where we talked of broken hearts
and love that never was.

I remember
all those times you told me
that this would last forever.
I remember
all those times you told me
that this would never end.

This is to the radio.
How singing along made everything okay,
and our plans to run away.
And that time we felt complete because the
stars were out.
And how every song we heard
described exactly how we felt.

I remember
all those times you told me
that this would last forever.
I remember
all those times you told me
that this would never end.

This is to you
and all those nights I spent alone.
All those days I spent waiting to see you.
All those times you said you'd call.
This is to you.
And all those nights I spent alone.
All those days I spent waiting to see you. A
ll those times you said you'd call.

You never called
Track Name: I Don't Want To Be Here
Every time I think I'm feeling better,
I feel better off alone.
I'm better off alone.

Every time I go out thinking,
"this could be the night",
I change my tone.
I'm better off at home.

I'm better off alone.
I'm better off at home.

'Cause I don't want to be here.
I don't want to see you
have the time of your life,
the time of your life.
And I just want to let go,
but you had me from the get go.
Have the time of your life,
the time of your life without me.

Every time I feel like giving up
you always seem to change my mind.
It happens every time.

And every time I think we're going forward
we start going in rewind.
It happens every time.

It happens every time.
And so I'll change my mind.

I don't want to be here.
I don't want to see you
have the time of your life,
the time of your life.
And I just want to let go,
but you had me from the get go.
Have the time of your life,
the time of your life without me.

Without me.
Without me.
The time of your life without me.
Track Name: Love & War
I always say I'm tired of fighting,
tired of writing about you.
I always promise that I'll know next time,
but I still waste my time on you.

So now you've proven that all my doubts were
just my instinct kicking in.
And all I've lost was time and effort,
but that sure ain't worth putting in.

And I can't handle
one more letdown,
one more breakdown,
one more fight.
I'm moving on towards
moving on and
you can't handle
that I'm still right.

I've done my part, so now it's your turn.
When will you learn it's just a game?
They say all is fair in love and war,
but when you play they seem the same.

So this is what it's all come down to?
I never thought it'd end like this.
It's just too bad I can't compete with
your temporary happiness.

And I can't handle
one more letdown,
one more breakdown,
one more fight.
I'm moving on towards
moving on and
you can't handle
that I'm still right.

I can't handle
one more letdown,
one more breakdown,
one more fight.
I'm moving on towards
moving on and
you can't handle
that I'm still right.

That I'm still right.
That I'm still right.
That I'm still right.
Yeah, I'm still right.
Track Name: Perfectly Alright
The truth, anything but,
would be pleasant right about now.
And this sharp pain in my gut
ain't so pleasant right about now.

Don't tell me what I still refuse to believe.
I'm perfectly alright in being naive.
I'm perfectly alright in being naive.
Don't tell me what I still refuse to accept.
I'll take this with arguments lodged in my chest.
I'm trying as hard as I can.
Yeah, I'm doing my best.

Your touch sends chills down my spine.
Not the good kind, not the good kind.
And these thoughts that race through my mind
aren't the good kind, not the good kind.

Don't tell me what I still refuse to believe.
I'm perfectly alright in being naive.
I'm perfectly alright in being naive.
Don't tell me what I still refuse to accept.
I'll take this with arguments lodged in my chest.
I'm trying as hard as I can.
Yeah, I'm doing my best.

I'll hang up this phone,
I don't want to hear your voice.
I'll hang up this phone,
I don't want to hear your voice anymore.
Hear your voice anymore.

Don't tell me what I still refuse to believe.
I'm perfectly alright in being naive.
I'm perfectly alright in being naive.
Don't tell me what I still refuse to accept.
I'll take this with arguments lodged in my chest.
I'm trying as hard as I can.
Yeah, I'm doing my best.

I'm doing my best.
I'm doing my best.
I'm doing my best.
Track Name: Analogy
Here's my analogy:
I'm to you as you're to me.
So I just can't understand why this is for the best.

The possibilities?
You'd have to take the chance to see, but
I'm not convincing so I'm failing one more test.

But I'll boldly go
to another lonely low,
and I'll try to keep my distance.
I'll try not to let it show
that I'm still all in
even though I said I'd fold.
Prayin' time will take its toll on me,
on me.

I can't begin to see
the future or my destiny,
but that's how life's supposed to be.
You only do or die.

I know that there are risks to take.
I know that there are hearts to break.
But weight the odds now, what's at stake?
You don't know 'till you try.

But I'll boldly go
to another lonely low,
and I'll try to keep my distance.
I'll try not to let it show
that I'm still all in
even though I said I'd fold.
Prayin' time will take its toll on me,
on me.

Yeah I'll boldly go
to another lonely low,
and I'll try to keep my distance.
I'll try not to let it show
that I'm still all in
even though I said I'd fold.
Prayin' time will take its toll on me,
on me.
Track Name: Song of Hope
You're lying to yourself if you say you don't like the games,
'cause I noticed all the smiles that you've been sneaking.
And I'm analyzing simple things. I guess I'm just afraid,
but my friends all say I'm really over-thinking.

'Cause everything I know
has gone out the window,
and I'll re-learn how to cope,
through one more song of hope.

If this is how it's gonna go, I tell you what, I'll let you know
when I get back, 'cause as for now I'm leaving.
Another day, another night, another chance to make this right.
I can't believe you've got me still believing.

'Cause everything I know
has gone out the window,
and I'll re-learn how to cope,
with one more song of hope.

And you know how I feel
'cause it's all on my sleeve,
but I'm not gonna beg.
If you leave, then you leave.
But it's killing me
silently,
sitting here.
Swear that it's over.
It's over.

It's over.
It's over!
It's over!
It's over!
It's over!
It's over!
It's over!
It's over!
