I'm Sorry 03:02
I’m sorry for not saying “I’m sorry” before And I’m sorry that you need an “I’m sorry” for the times I supplied you with a broken heart I’m sorry that I’m saying “I’m sorry” for the one I missed And now I’m sorry for saying I’m sorry right now for the “sorry” that you needed before You yell and scream with all your might Trying to show your hurt and spite And we both know this won’t end tonight But it may if I say you’re right So… I’m sorry for not saying “I’m sorry” before And I’m sorry that you need an “I’m sorry” for the times I supplied you with a broken heart I’m sorry that I’m saying “I’m sorry” for the one I missed And now I’m sorry for saying I’m sorry right now for the “sorry” that you needed before You don’t believe my heart is true When I move on to something new I gotta go back, see your point view And if I don’t we may be through So... I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry for not saying “I’m sorry” before And I’m sorry that you need an “I’m sorry” for the times I supplied you with a broken heart I’m sorry that I’m saying I’m sorry for the one I missed And now I’m sorry for saying “I’m sorry” right now for the “sorry” that you needed before Yeah I’m sorry for saying “I’m sorry” right now when you needed an “I’m sorry” before

There’s a pain on the opposite side of my heart Everytime that I play I can feel it start It moves through my chest and it slides to my gut Oh, the ache and the sadness It tears me apart Whoa why can’t you see what you mean to me? Oh, how can that be when you’re all that I need? And why won’t my love or my touch set you free? Oh, why can’t you see what you mean to me? I can’t move, I can’t breathe when you’re angry at me My body will shut down and force me to grieve I can’t hide, I can’t smile, I just sit down and cry Oh the fear and the madness It breaks my heart Whoa why can’t you see what you mean to me? Oh, how can that be when you’re all that I need? And why won’t my love or my touch set you free? Oh, why can’t you see what you mean to me? You should know by now That I’m sticking around And that I’m scared too But I’d rather be scared with you Than scared alone So why can’t you see what you mean to me? Oh, how can that be when you’re all that I need? And why won’t my love or my touch set you free? Oh, why can’t you see what you mean to me? Whhhoooaa And why won’t my love or my touch set you free? Oh, Why can’t you see what you mean to me?

Learn To Fly 04:21
I want to keep the grass between my toes and Let my feet sink in ground I hear how crazy that must sound. I don't know, don't ask me why but gravity has never felt this right. I'm not ready to learn how to fly You claim I'm brave enough You say I'm feeling tired You could be right but who's to know who it's right for? Let this songbird stay on land to feed my strength and take a stand Taste the freedom in what I can do and the freedom to choose not to I want to keep the grass between my toes and Let my feet sink in ground I hear how crazy that must sound. I don't know, don't ask me why but gravity has never felt this right. I'm not ready to learn how to fly Shut up, I've heard enough I know I let you down You seem to know just what to do so do it yourself And let this songbird stay on land to feed my strength and take a stand Taste the freedom in what I can do and the freedom to choose not to I want to keep the grass between my toes and Let my feet sink in ground I hear how crazy that must sound. I don't know, don't ask me why but gravity has never felt this right. I'm not ready to learn how to fly Winter has been too cold It's worn me out, it's made me old Feathers were left behind Along with pieces of my pride Will I ever find a home? Or is a home your flesh and bones? I don't know I still don't know So, I want to keep the Grass between my toes and Let my feet sink in ground I hear how crazy that must sound. I don't know, don't ask me why but gravity has never felt this right. I'm not ready to learn how to Fly, Oh I don't know, don't ask me why but gravity has never felt this right. I'm not ready to learn how to….FLY

Don't 04:20
I don’t wanna call to hear what I did was wrong I don’t wanna call to laugh and play along I don’t wanna get myself worked up Be fooled by a love that self-destructs I don’t wanna call and hear what I did was wrong All that I am All that you see Is something I’ve done It’s all I have It’s all I need You wanna take some But there’s not enough No, you don’t know what’s best and you put my patience to the test So I hide my cards between my breasts, inside the shirt, underneath my vest Until I catch my breath I don’t wanna call to hear what I did was wrong I don’t wanna call to laugh and play along I don’t wanna get myself worked up Be fooled by a love that self-destructs I don’t wanna call and hear what I did was wrong You wanna yell You wanna scream Teach me a lesson Toughen me up And make me bleed Until I learn one But I can’t do enough I don’t need to see your face to know it’s looking at me with disgrace So the blood freezes in my veins, my heart begins to run a race Until you’ve made your case I don’t wanna call to hear what I did was wrong I don’t wanna call to laugh and play along I don’t wanna get myself worked up To be fooled by a love that self-destructs I don’t wanna call and hear what I did was wrong I don’t wanna call and hear what I did was wrong Cause I’m not wrong Yeah, you’re wrong Yeah, you’re wrong

I’m alone in this room Every light is turned on Leaves are flying past the window so they can dance on the lawn I keep jotting down notes Of all the things that I should do And replaying my mistakes that I wish weren’t true Cause I’ve been a slave to my Daddy Then a slave to my man Now I’m a slave for myself so I can try to understand What’s right, what’s wrong And what it means to be strong I’ll do it all in one day while doing nothing at all My guitar’s on the floor I’ve got the vacuum pulled out I’ve got bills to pay but I’m sitting on the couch And reliving old decisions that are littered with doubt Cause I’ve been a slave to my Daddy Then a slave to my man Now I’m a slave for myself so I can try to understand What’s right, what’s wrong And what it means to be strong I’ll do it all in one day while doing nothing at all I’ll do it all in one day while doing nothing…. Nothing At All To-do lists get longer and my mind still wanders You can’t escape your own past But it’s a test to get stronger, an opportunity to ponder But how long will it last? All I know is... I’ve been a slave to my Daddy Then a slave to my man Now I’m a slave for myself so I can try to understand… SOMEONE TELL ME What’s right, what’s wrong What it really means to be strong I’ll do it all in one day while doing nothing at all I’ll do it all in one day while doing nothing at all I GOTTA do it all in one day while doing nothing... Nothing At All

Tomorrow 03:48
The sun is rising It's not surprising but you're not ready for the moon to go away Your face is swollen Your mind's still rolling over the pros and cons of fighting for one more day Relax and feel your breath Dry your tears and rest your head Close your eyes go back to bed, we'll try again Tomorrow It's the season all your reasons, demons, and feelings dance on bones and through your veins So I'll bring you coffee Whisper softly all off the reasons why you're going to be okay. Relax and feel your breath Dry your tears and rest your head Close your eyes go back to bed, we'll try again Tomorrow It's not more than you can take One day all this pain will break But for now, feel your breath Dry your tears and rest your head Close your eyes go back to bed, we'll try again Tomorrow Close your eyes go back to bed, we'll try again Tomorrow Close your eyes go back to bed, we'll try again Tomorrow

Past 03:43
There's a monster on my back He's large and he's tricky to drag He holds on by gripping my neck With hands and arms demanding respect I gently asked him his name He said "I am your Past..." Fear through tears ran down my face Past laughed and reveled in my pain His breath sent cold chills down my spine As he began to tell guilt-ridden rhymes I tried to plan my escape He said "I plan to stay..." If I can build up the strength Then maybe this won't feel the same I'll workout and chisel my core I’ll eat well, ignore the remorse I swear I'll will you away He said, "That will not work..." What can I do? What can I change? Whether it's inside my head or it's furniture to rearrange this RAGE There's a monster on my back There's a monster on my back There's a monster on my back There's a monster on my back…..

Have you ever broken a man? 'Cause I have I took his whole world and ripped it right in half I can still see his face, his mind lost in space He began to sway, his eyes formed a glaze.... I should take off these rings, they're too hard to see They remind me of the honor I decieved I know I gotta look back, dissect that But I'm so scared to do that 'Cause what if I destroyed all we had? When I thought that whiskey and wine Mixed with biding my time Would drown my soul to safety I thought that starting to cheat Mixed with fighting to leave was the only way to save me But now I'm stuck holding my breath Wondering what comes next... When you've been fighting for 92 days With a spotlight on all your flaws Mmmm What comes next When you hope, beg, and pray that he stays But you'll feel guilty if he does This was never the plan, I swear... I thought that whiskey and wine Mixed with biding my time Would drown my soul to safety I thought that starting to cheat Mixed with fighting to leave was the only way to save me But now I'm stuck holding my breath Wondering what comes next...
