Track Name: Swing
I was waiting on a call
Waiting for an answer worth waiting for
Thought I was was better off alone
and I didn't have the hands to move no stone

But oh my heart it will not stray

If I could be anything, I'd be your darling
lying here always
If I could do anything, I'd be swinging my hand in your hand again

Love is a funny old thing
Taught me it could take before it showed me it could bring
And I used to feel so sad, used to break at every bend
But I guess you gotta break before you ever can mend

But oh, my hear it will not stray

If I could be anything, I'd be your darling
lying here always
If I could do anything, I'd be swinging my hand I your hand again

Mmm, it's you I adore
and I don't know why I ever cried before
Oh but I know that I don't have to cry no more

If I could be anything, I'd be your darling
lying here always
If I could do anything, I'd be swinging my hand I your hand again
do do do do do do
Track Name: Rebecca
Don't say you're angry
Don't say you've had enough
I have missed you lately
Have you missed me back

I didn't mean to let you down, I was wrong
but I know you're happy now, away from home
This pain will pass Rebecca, no trouble will last forever
if you let it go let it go

let it go

Well I saw you leaving,
said some things I shouldn't have said
Tried to make you love me
But you left instead

You know we're not better off, believing that
It's all of the others fault, oh don't be mad
Don't tell a lie rebecca, no love will be gone forever
you can't let it go let it go

do do do do do do do do do do do do do
let it go

sometimes I laugh
sometimes I cry
but mostly I just
I just wonder why

Wonder why I never did the things I should
If I had the chance again, I swear I would
Oh don't you cry Rebecca, no crying will make it better
so let it go, come on home

do do do do do do do do do do do do do
let it go
Track Name: Gun
I was driving in the night time real slow
thinkin bout you sleeping on his pillow
uh oh this gun is loaded
uh oh this gun is loaded

Shouldn't have been unkind, should't have been cruel
You shoulda been the lover that I wanted you to

4am your car rolled in you woke me
You were shooting and all that I was thinking
Is uh oh this gun is loaded
uh oh this gun is loaded
uh oh this gun is loaded
uh oh this gun is loaded

I shouldn't have been unkind, shouldn't have been cruel
I shoulda been the lover that you wanted me to

On the floor you left them bleeding
put me in the front seat screaming
red and blue they've come for you
one shot left and lost your reason
this gun is loaded
this gun is loaded
uh oh this gun is loaded
this gun is loaded

uh oh this gun is loaded x 6

Shouldn't have been unkind, shouldn't have been cruel
shoulda been the lover that I wanted you to
Track Name: Remedy
It's so cold but I can still feel your warm hold
I can here you whispering close like you were just here
oh you were just here a moment ago

And so as another day comes it goes and
let the days carry you away away
oh we were okay a moment ago

so come on little darling don't be sad
you know we gave it all we had
even if it hurst right now there's nothing left to lose
come on little darling don't be scared
Please find the better part of me you could be my remedy

Oo I shoulda known much better oo I shoulda taken heed
ooh I won't say you never meanr that much to me
It just hurts to say good bye time and time again

Well I held you just to prove that you were mine
I held you just to prove that I could find somebody to love
but baby my heart is quiet now

so come on little darling don't be sad
you know we gave it all we had
even if it hurst right now there's nothing left to lose
come on little darling don't be scared
Please find the better part of me you could be my remedy

Oo I shoulda known much better oo I shoulda taken heed
ooh I won't say you never meanr that much to me
It just hurts to say good bye time and time again

(x3) so come on little darling don't be sad
you know we gave it all we had
even if it hurst right now there's nothing left to lose

Come on little darling don't be scared
please find the better part of you
you could be your remedy too

Oo I shoulda known much better oo I shoulda taken heed
ooh I won't say you never meanr that much to me
It just hurts to say good bye time and time again
Track Name: No One
I know you're not asking for forever
you just want a hand to hold for a while
but it's alright cos i'm not looking for another
i'm just waiting for my luck to turn around

And it hurts when I'm along but empty's all i've ever known
so the pain inside my heart can keep me comfort
You and I are just the same we are playing the same game
where nobody wins and no one ever loses
Don't you think it's time to stop, no I won't ever stop for no one
for no one no

My doubt took the place where my hope used to be
and settled down quite comfortably to stay
but it's alright cos I see diamonds through these tears
and i'm okay with all these fears somedays
but only somedays

And it hurts when I'm along but empty's all i've ever known
so the pain inside my heart can keep me comfort
You and I are just the same we are playing the same game
where nobody wins and no one ever loses
Don't you think it's time to give it up, no I won't give it up
but maybe you should give it up, no I won't give it up
But why can't you give it up, cos I can't give it up for no one
for no one no

I'm not, i'm not mad i'm just loney
i'm not hurt I just thought you'd stick around
Guess I, thought that love would remember me
and pick me up from where it put me down

I guess it's hard if you're alone and empty's all you've ever known
and the pain inside your heart can't keep you comfort
You and I are still the same we are playing the same game
Where nobody wins but someone always loses
Don't you think it's time to settle down
no I can't settle down for no one
but who have I become, who have I become
Track Name: Little Love
Little love why're you breaking my heart
words are just words when you say them enough
little love oh wherever you are
do you think of me still lying there in your arms

Oh buy why'd you have to comfort me
If I was just rain on your wing

You coulda been somebody else's lover
Held on to her just like there was no other
If it comes falling down just like it's always done
it hurts but I know I'll be here

Whatever was oh I know it still is
Says my broken heart tied to these broken things
Whatever was guess it wasn't enough
Cos you gave it all up for some temporary love

Oh you held me so close just to push me so far
You're just ht evil you were singing about

You coulda been somebody else's lover
(you coulda been somebody else)
Held on to her just like there was no other
(held on to her just like you do)
If it comes falling down just like it's always done
(when it comes falling down)
If hurts but I know I'll be here

ooooooooooo

Little love am I breaking your heart
I just wanna know that you feel something back
Little love oh wherever you are
wherever you're going and wherever i'm going
oh whatever the trouble and whatever the cost
well you'd give it all up for just one second shot
at a love come and gone but it was me that you lost
oh a love come and gone and now all that you've got
is little love
little love
little love
Track Name: King
When I was king I had diamonds in my crown
but they're all fallen out now
Pull me from thos grave I have made
I'm more than afraid now
Cos I have died 1 thousand times with every death more lonely than the last

To tell the truth you make me awful mad
taking all I had
sometimes I can forget that i'm forgot
and all my friends are gone
but all my words get tangled up in reasons that were never even mine

Sometimes I can feel you right beside me
But mostly I'm alone
And if you stay well say you'll be here always
or leave me on my own

Maybe I'm in love with my sadness
happy in this mess
Think I might just take another lift
to feel like i'm adrift
but I see the water ripple as I keep sinking down down down

Sometimes I can feel you right beside me
But mostly I'm alone
And if you stay well say you'll be here always
or leave me on my own
mmmm

There you found me crying in your garden
I didn't here you coming
Tried to speak to tell you I was sorry
And I would give up all these things and love you like a wing oh
I would give up all these things and love you like a wing on the wind
Track Name: Meddling
I've been thinking bout burning this house down
All these troubles just burn them to the ground
Reason reason left me long ago
Left me here with maybes and I don't knows

I know there is something wrong

Maybe I did, but baby I don't anymore
Maybe I would, but baby I can't anymore
Cos love it has been meddling with my heart too long

I can hear you talking about me still
Even if I had words I'd not speak at all

I know there is something wrong

Cos maybe I did, but baby I don't anymore
And maybe I would but baby I can't anymore
Cos love it has been meddling and keeping me up at night
I know I did something wrong and don't think I can set it right
I know you coulda helped me been better than what i've been
Oh love it won't stop meddling oh meddling with me
