Track Name: Take Me As I Am
Have a little love in your heart,
Have a little love in your soul,
And take me as I am.

Have a little trust with your heart,
Have a little trust with your soul,
Take me as i am.

What do you see when you close your eyes?
Is it the past that worries you?
What do you see when I take off my disguise?
Is it something just a little too true?

Are you afraid that we're gonna change?
Well trust me baby you're not easy to replace.

Find a little love in your heart,
Find a little love in your soul,
And take me as I am.

Have a little fun with your heart,
Have a little fun with your soul,
And take me as i am.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm,
Not the perfect person I could be,
Sitting next to you is how i should spend my time,
We can take it slow never move too quickly.

Are you afraid that I'm a bit too strange?
Well aren't we all now, baby?
Are you afraid that I'll never change?
Well trust me baby I'm not easy to replace.
Track Name: Keep Fishin'
Baby one day I'll catch you,
And you'll never break through my line,
Baby one day I'll find you,
All I need is for you to send me a sign.

Because until then I'll just keep fishing.

Baby where are you hiding?
On the hook I've got your favorite bait,
Baby no one's around us,
How much longer will you make me wait?

Because until then I'll just keep fishing.

Baby don't you worry,
One I catch you I'll never let you go,
Baby there's room for two,
Once you're here we'll row home, don't 'cha know?

But until then, I'll just keep fishing.
I'll just keep fishing.
Track Name: Take It From Here
Tell me what you want, tell me what you need,
Tell me what sets you free.
So I can take it away, I can take it away...

Tell me what you want, tell me what you need,
It doesn't matter how bad you want it,
I'll take it from here.

You never thought you'd see me again,
I know where to find you.
Every time you get back on your feet,
That's where you will find me.

So give me what you want, give me what you need,
Give me what sets you free.
So I can give it away, I can give it all away...

Give me what you want, give me what you need,
It doesn't matter who gets what,
You don't deserve.

You tried to tell your friends back home that,
I don't come around no more.
So you get to fight me all by yourself,
That's not a challenge at all.

I'll take what you want, I'll take what you need,
I'll take what sets you free.
I will take it away, I will take it all away.

I'll take what you want, I'll take what you need,
It doesn't matter how bad you want it,
I'll take it from here.
Track Name: Little More
I was trying to think of what you wanted the most,
And every time I give it...
You take a little more from me.

I don't know why I expected more from you she said,
What with all you've done...
I don't know why this comes as a complete surprise,
But I should have known by now.

But I was just trying to think of what you wanted the most,
And every time I do it...
You take a little more from me.

I don't why I stayed all this long,
Was it because I'm scared?
Was it because by getting up and leaving,
It made me alone too.

So now I'm trying, to think of what I want to do,
And I do know one thing,
You can't take anymore from me,
You can't take anymore from me,
You won't take anymore from me.
Track Name: Black Beatle
Black beatle who are you?
Black beatle tell me the truth.

Are you here to tell me how to lead this poor life?
Or just here to watch all this pain and my strife?

Black Beatle

Have you been watching me walk in circles all day?
Why won't you intervene and change my ways?

Black Beatle

I want you to come around any time that you'd like,
But there's just one problem - i don't like bugs in my room.
Track Name: Fight Me
Well every time I tell you I wanna see a show,
You fight me, fight me, fight me,
You don't wanna go.

Well listen, babe, I'm not looking to put on a show,
But you fight me, fight me, fight me,
Now I'm ready to go.

I don't know if this is what you wished,
But baby, it doesn't have to be like this.

Let's talk it out, let's take a step back,
And yet you fight me, fight me, fight me,
And you knock me off track.

Slow it down, what is this all about?
And then you fight me, fight me, fight me,
Why do you have to shout?

I don't know if this is what you wished,
But baby it doesn't have to be like this...
But it does have to end.

So listen babe, I'll tell you one more time,
Don't 'cha fight me, fight me, fight me,
Now you've crossed my line.

Well this is it, this is all she wrote,
And yet you fight me, fight me, fight me,
For some money to float.

I don't have to put up with this anymore.

The time has come, it's time to pack up your things,
And yet you fight me, fight me, fight me,
For a diamond ring.

I'm happy that it's finally come today,
You fight me, fight me, fight me,
Why would I want to stay?

Why would I want to stay?
Track Name: On The Radio (Radio Edit)
I won't write a piece of shhhh - so I'll never be on the radio,
I won't write a piece of shhhh - so I'll never be on the radio.
It takes me longer than five minutes to write a pop song,
I won't write a piece of shhhh - so I'll never be on the radio.

I have something to say, I have something to do,
I'd like to think my songs could do more.

I won't write a piece of shhhh - so I'll never be on the radio,
I won't write a piece of shhhh - so I'll never be on the radio.
It takes me more than three chords to write a pop song,
I won't write a piece of shhhh - so I'll never be on the radio.

You can't buy me off, doesn't matter how much,
Well lemme see that paper - I guess I was wrong.

I just wrote a piece of shhhh - now I'm gonna be on the radio,
I just wrote a piece of shhhh - so I'm gonna be on the radio.
This is the greatest song I ever wrote - well maybe not,
I just wrote a piece of shhhh - now I'm gonna be on the radio.

I'm gonna be on the radio...
Track Name: Her Name
I'm in love with a girl, but she doesn't know it yet,
I'd like to know her name - it doesn't matter my mind is set.

I wonder what turns her on what gets her heart beating fast,
I wonder where she lives and all the things she's done in her past.

I'd like to know her name,
I wanna know her name...

The dress matches her eyes there's a sunflower in her hair,
It comes as no surprise, I don't like coffee I'm just here to stare...

Well I decide to say hi and at that moment my legs go numb,
She's leaving this is my chance and all I manage is to say something dumb...

I'd like to know your name,
I wanna know your name.

Her name is Nancy, she's running late.
She's gotta go now, I'll see you next week.
Track Name: Could Never
I could never fix your car when you have a flat,
I could never repair your roof - imagine that,
And however, you know there is one thing I will do,
And that's love you.

I could never fix your favorite with sauerkraut,
But I could always go get your favorite to take out,
And my darlin' you know there is one thing I will do,
And that's love you.

I could never understand what it is you see in me,
Or how you always accept what I'm trying to be,
And how you promise you'll always be true,
To the one that loves you.
Track Name: Fairytales
Well every time that I - I go looking for myself,
Well it's always the same place,
And you - you are always right there,
I can not escape you,
And I - I don't ever know what you want from me,
But I know, you're not gonna get it.

I don't believe in fairy tales,
'Cause that is certainly not how it's gonna end,
I don't believe in fairy tales,
'Cause this one we're in just turned into a nightmare.
Once I loved you and I couldn't let go,
Now I can't seem to get ya to go away.

Won't you please look down at my shoes,
I tied them all by myself this morning,
I even buttoned my own shirt,
It was a struggle but I made it ok,
I promise that I'm a big boy now,
And I can do it myself somehow,
So won't you please go away?

Why won't you go away from me?
I only need a minute,
Don't you have better things to do?
Track Name: Don't Say A Word
Don't say a word 'cause I don't want this moment to end,
Don't say a word 'cause I want you to stay.

I realize I'm not the only one who wants to see you,
But every time I look at you, you're looking at me, smiling back...

There's a million things I'd like to tell you, if you had the time,
But deep down both you and I agree you already know...

Finally I broke down and I told you what I've been trying to tell you,
I love ya, I miss you, then you faded away...
Track Name: Alone Anymore
You don't want to be alone anymore,
Ever since he walked out that door,
You don't want to be alone.
Well every time I pick up my phone,
I have to leave a message at the tone,
But you don't want to be alone.

Why's it always have to be about you?
Why ya always have to be secure?
And even Jesus knows you're freaking out,
It won't be that way no more...

Why can't you do it yourself?
Why's someone have to fight for you?
We've all got some growing up to do,
You'll never be happy like this...

Sometimes it feels like, everything's a waste,
And I've been there before,
Sometimes it feels like, like the sky is falling,
And I've been there before...

You don't wanna be alone anymore,
Ever since he walked out that door,
Well you don't have to be alone...
