Track Name: Play With Fire
And I would play with fire
My hearts made of desires
And it does not show fear now
And I want you to know that I would never let you go
Not even for the mountains of Colorado

Well I can get burned and i'm not scared to learn
And I am getting this all out right now
And I hope that you feel that I can have some worth to you even when i'm gone

And I don't see the point in giving time to anyone that doesn't have my undivided attention

And I would play with fire
My hearts made of desires
And it does not show fear now
And I want you to know that I would never let you go
Not even for the mountains of Colorado
Track Name: Highclass
So Mary won't you tell me please just what you see in me
Why are you keeping me around?
I'm not saying that i'm hating all the plans you're making but you still got me around
So go on girl call and ask me - You know i'd be so happy just to follow you down

But baby i'm not going today
But that day, it's not far away
That i'll be getting in my car
And driving up to the sky
And I know that she'll be there
And in her beauty I don't dare
Deep green eyes and long brown hair
I said she's so damn beautiful

I know you can't be interested
I'm not the best dressed but you're still not looking down
Back at home yeah I am thinking would she do the same for me and i'm coming down

I must admit i'm quite in love I can't get enough of your beautiful voice
On the phone when you're alone and you're all my own gotta get out of the past

But baby i'm not going today
But that day is not far away
That i'll be getting in my car
And driving up to the sky
And I know that she'll be there
And in her beauty I don't dare
Deep green eyes and long brown hair
I said she's so damn beautiful

But all these things in the world that I could have
Or be just the man she makes me
She's high-class, i'm mediocre at best
She stole my heart - I call it theivery

But baby i'm not coming today
But that day is not far away
That i'll be getting in my car
And driving up to the sky
And I know that she'll be there
And in her beauty I don't dare
Deep green eyes and long brown hair
I said she's so damn beautiful
Track Name: New Love
Location don't matter - wherever we are
Well you break me down - It's not hard
And I pick up my brain - get it out of the past
Cause I need to live my life to the best
Was I good to my friends? Was I good to her?
Well I tried for what it's worth

Because you stole it and I can't give it to anyone else
Because you took it a long time ago
And now here I am stuck
And I can't seem to find new love because I know that you will

Do you think i'd do all of these things for anybody?
And you've always had all of my love and my heart girl, is only you

Because you stole it and I can't give it to anyone else
Because you took it a long time ago
And now here I am stuck
And I can't seem to find new love but I know that you will
Track Name: All The Same
I'm writing you a tune even though i'm sure you don't really want me to
I'm giving my all for you - the only thing I have left to do
I hope there is something of interest in me
I know there's not much going on this spring

Cause I'm getting reeled in by that sight of you
And trust i'll be the person who will help you anyway
If you're needing it come my way
Cause honey that's what I wanna do

I don't care the color of your hair let it change
But still i'm captivated all the same
So smile make me smile
Bring the sun and not the rain
I know you're not my girl but all the same

I'm getting reeled in by that sight of you
And trust i'll be the person who will help you anyway
If you're needing it come my way
Cause honey that's what I wanna do
I say i'll do it for you
Track Name: Burn
Does it change who you are?
Well I don't think it does
How did you ever get this far without a heart at all?
Does it mean i'm not what it seems when I speak up for my heart and my feelings?
Did it ever really matter?

It's a choice to move on
You've gotta give a little bit more for what you want
And I don't even know what it is that made me go

When we leave will anyone be singing out those songs that we bleed?
I know it was never enough

It's a choice to move on
You've gotta give a little bit more for what you want
And I don't even know what it is that made me go
Track Name: Lock That Door
Nadia won't you tell me what I wanna hear?
Getting in your car and you're driving over here for awhile
Yeah just a little while
Beverly I make it hard to say whats on your mind
It's a possibility that i'm just not your type
So i'm slowing down my steps
Cleverly life's not so bad there's no need for stress
This fast paced worlds got you looking for the best
But either way I might be right about this

So slow it down life moves too fast for you to try and move it faster
You can't stop this big world from turning you might as well learn to groove

Becca what's the problem? Why can't we get along?
Sit out on my back porch soaking in the sun
And living the happy life
I know that there is something wrong with me
But it's not the way I look or the company that I keep
But either way I might be right about this
But either way I can move on

So slow it down life moves too fast for you to try and move it faster
You can't stop this big world from turning you might as well learn to groove

Mary don't you see the pattern of things?
Life its a changing and that's something I can see
But I don't know if you're seeing it too
Track Name: NM Is For Lovers
It's a long drive home tonight
And it's already dark in the country side
The world is spinning way too fast
Putting my eyes to the test
My souls be tarnished - burned up in flames
Honey i'll never be the same

But i'm not going back to New Mexico
Not anytime soon
No I can not find the time and she's killing me every night
And I can't go back, no
Can't go back to Taos

Can't be the best time to leave
Rolling on midnight thirty
But I need Jenny Lewis for that 4 hour drive
Gotta make it home alive
The day has come and I know what i've done
Oh, Lord what is the truth

But i'm not going back to New Mexico
Not anytime soon
No I can not find the time and she's killing me every night
And I can't go back, no
Can't go back to Taos
Track Name: True Love
I got a problem with saying things I don't mean - and they're mean
Gotta help me solve it oh girl won't you please?
I'm missing an important part of me

And as we grow old and look back at the stories we told about getting up and getting out there
And I know that i'm still young but there's one thing that can't be undone
and it's love, true love

I have a problem with saying things that I mean - and they're mean
I'll save the money if that's what you need
Everyone wants just a little security
Darling, so do we

And as we grow old and look back at the stories we've told about getting up and getting out there
And I know that i'm still young but there's one thing that can't be undone
and it's love, true love
Track Name: Soma
I woke up too early this morning to get out of bed
I shook myself awake just to get out of my own head
And peaks of orange are rising over missionary ridge
Through the trees to my windows giving me my wish

But that snow it is falling (it's falling down) and it's starting to look like a good morning to me
What's the problem? I know that i've got a couple places I should be

I woke up too late this morning to get right in my head
Unprepared days they're passing like a fog, a ripple of the wind

But that snow it is falling (it's falling down) and it's starting to look like a good morning to me
What's the problem? I know that i've got a couple places I should be

But that snow it is falling and it's starting to look like a good morning to us
What's the problem? I know that i've got a couple places I should be
Track Name: Long Road Home
I'm like a fish out of water
I'm fighting to fill my lungs
Most days honey we're ok
But it's never enough
I remember the fire
It burned brighter than before
High in the sky - I paint it with my eyes
There's nothing to write about

It's a long road home - full of trouble
It's a long road home getting back to you
It's a long road home but i'll make it worth my while
Don't wait up

I'm like a shark out of water - taking anything I can catch
Now i'm skipping rocks across this river
But there's nothing to write about

It's a long road home - full of trouble
It's a long road home getting back to you
It's a long road home but i'll make it worth my while
Don't wait up
