Track Name: Smooth Talker
You took a little piece of me"
And you put it out of reach"
Stretched my arms so far I thought I wouldn’t see my hands again" Return with empty palms hope for Karma to tie the severed ends


Smooth Talker"
Why you always have to go and lie to me?

Smooth Talker"
Now you’re just a stranger walking away from me.

Smooth Talker"
Why you always have to go and lie to me?

Smooth Talker"
Now you’re just a stranger walking away from me"
"
And I can’t see your"
"
Face the day, hope for mercy to sway"
My battling mind"
But all it has to say is that "
Life can be unkind"
And it’s a heavy head that will bring me to my knees"
And it’s a heavy heart that will always be hard to please"
And I don’t wanna plead"
"
Smooth Talker"
Why you always have to go and lie to me?"
Smooth Talker"
Now you’re just a stranger walking away from me."
Smooth Talker"
Why you always have to go and lie to me?

Smooth Talker"
Now you’re just a stranger walking away from me"
"
And I can’t see your face..."
Track Name: Better of Me
Simple"
It always starts out simple"
Happy"
The way things should be. "
But it’s fickle."
Nothings ever that simple."
Watch how quickly."
Things get tricky"
"
I, I try to be good most times"
But my green eye is wandering"
And I wish I, was better at playing nice"
"
It’s true I do make you jump through the hoops but I’m just saying" "
I love you, I love you"
Isn’t that what it comes down to?"
That I love you?"
"
History"
Will always get the better of me"
My curiosity"
Well it hasn’t killed me so far"
You say to me"
That shit means nothing"
But it’s something to hide"
Something to find"
And I file it away"
In the back of my mind"
"
And I, I try to be good most times"
But my green eye is wandering"
And I wish I was better at playing nice"
It’s true I do make you jump through the hoops but I’m just saying" "
I love you, I love you"
Isn’t that what it comes down to?"
That I love you?

I love you"
Isn’t that what it comes down to?"
That I love you?"
"
I’m only really writing this to simply try and piss him off"
And he will only listen to it simply just to write it off"
And I could place the blame and tell him that I think his dick is soft " But him and I both know that’s no good way to go about getting off" And this is how the beginning of the end always starts"
When I can’t keep from thinking you look better in the dark"
So baby just come quickly I can’t keep my legs apart

"
Long enough for you to make me say..."
"
Track Name: Honey, Who Knew
Honey, say that you’ll stay
We can waste another day

As soon as our eyes meet
One taste of your lips and I admit defeat
It’s so easy, sweetly
Fill me, I’m empty needing
Your touch, it’s enough
To fill my cup, up completely
So honey, say that you’ll stay
You’re just too good
To turn away.


Who knew it’d be you
I’ve give in to
Oh honey, who knew it’d be you

I’d give in to, I’d give in to


Honey, please be kind

Don’t give me your tough love
 Just surrender to your fight

I think you’re in denial

And you know as well as I do

That I will make it worth your while
 


Who knew it’d be you
I’ve give in to, I’d give in
Oh honey, who knew
It’d be you, It’d be you
That I’d give in to.
Track Name: Lessons
What I have seen, what I have done, what I have wanted
Has always been hard
And I have pushed, I have blamed
Thrown myself in to the flames
But it never got me far

Oh well, I never really wanted it anyway
No I never really wanted it anyway

Lessons that I’ve learned
Lessons that I’ve learned

I was silent and complacent, it was my own failure

That never stepped from my sight

But I have gripped it, I have claimed it

I have wrestled to turn to face it
Listening to the echoes of my mind
 

“How could you ever have all of this anyway?”

“How could you ever get all of this anyway?”


Lessons that I’ve learned

Lessons that I’ve learned

Lessons that I’ve learned

Lessons that I’ve learned

Lessons that I’ve learned

Lessons that I’ve learned
