Track Name: Secrets
Never has he had to choose
Between faith and fun
Never had something to lose
Never had just one

He’s never had something like this
And if he got the chance
Would he keep it just one girl one kiss
Or would he give into another tramp

Secrets he tried to keep
Secrets that got him knee deep
And the girl that he destroyed
Won’t stop till he pays
He won’t get away with no secrets

Never has she had to choose
To let go or to love
Never had something so good
But it’s still not enough

She knows he’s not telling the truth
Still she stays, still she stays
She knows she’s been loving a lie
He won’t change, he’ll never change

Secrets he tried to keep
Secrets that got him knee deep
And the girl that he destroyed
Won’t stop till he pays
He won’t get away with no secrets

He’d lie, he’d cheat
She admits defeat
He just won’t stop
So she untied the knot
He lost the one
She’s better alone
She’s better alone

Secrets he tried to keep
Secrets that got him knee deep
And the girl that he destroyed
Won’t stop till he pays
He won’t get away with no
Secrets he tried to keep
Secrets that got him knee deep
And the girl that he destroyed
Won’t stop till he pays
He won’t get away with no
Secrets he tried to keep
Secrets that got him knee deep
And the girl that he destroyed
Won’t stop till he pays
He won’t get away with no secrets
Track Name: Charmer
So I hear you're a charmer
I hear you get all the girls
I hear you've got a killer smile
And quite a way with words

So I hear you're a charmer
irresistible
I hear you're handsome as hell
and the ruin of us all

tonight, tonight
you say I'm the only one
and that you want to give me all your love
Am I a fool to let myself fall
but baby without you I'm no better off

Ch-ch-charm away
tonight, tonight I am not afraid
and maybe I'll regret it someday
tonight, tonight I am not afraid

So I hear you're a charmer
I hear you're full of lies
and you'd totally be done
if it weren't for your eyes

So I hear you're a charmer
you get everything you want
and with no conscience
why would you ever stop

tonight, tonight
you say I'm the only one
and that you want to give me all your love
Am I a fool to let myself fall
but baby without you I'm no better off

Ch-ch-charm away
tonight, tonight I am not afraid
and maybe I'll regret it someday
tonight, tonight I am not afraid
Track Name: Kiss On The Mouth
I wish I never met you
So I’d never fall in love
So that I never hurt
So that I’d never fall apart
So that I’d never become
Such a mess
So that I’d never feel so alone
In this bed

So it goes

It started with a kiss on the mouth
For my heart to race
That familiar chase
You drive me crazy
A kiss on the mouth
Your hands on my waist
Your tongue and your taste
You drive me crazy
A kiss on the mouth

So it goes

I don’t think we were ever really
Meant to get to get this far
To ever get so deep or anywhere
But here we are
Don’t take it personal
The problem isn’t you, it’s me
The problem is the choices
I’ve made a habit of making

So it goes

I’ve put so much of my heart into you
Hoping that something would change
Now I couldn’t leave you if I wanted to
And I only have myself to blame…
Cause you’re so full of shit
You’re a hypocrite
An attention whore
And you’ll always want more

So it goes, you drive me crazy
A kiss on the mouth.
Track Name: Alright
Hello hollow heart
Beating me back
Beating me down
Beating me black

Awake, always alone
Drifting from my home
Drifting from my friends
Drifting from my body

Can anybody tell me it’s gonna be alright
That this isn’t all just a waste of time
‘Cause I can’t take one more day or one more night
Say it, say it, say it one more time

Hello hollow heart
Beating me back
Beating me down
Beating me black

My memories might
Just break my neck

Can anybody tell me it’s gonna be alright
That this isn’t all just a waste of time
‘Cause I can’t take one more day or one more night
Say it, say it, say it one more time

Can anybody tell me it’s gonna be alright
Can you say it, say it, say it one more time
‘Cause I can’t fake one more day or one more night
So say it, say it, say it one more time

Can anybody tell me it’s gonna be alright
That this isn’t all just a waste of time
‘Cause I can’t fake one more day or one more night
Say it, say it, say it one more time
Track Name: The Fall
Made some mistakes, built them up from the ground
Haven’t even started making my way down
It was just one more, it was supposed to be fun
I can’t promise I won’t do again what I’ve done
And I’m afraid
What have I become

I make myself sick
And I’m sinking quick
I make myself sick
I make myself sick
I’ve become the poison
That started it all
This is the fall
This is the fall

Every moment, every kiss
It wasn’t love but I couldn’t resist
Now my body will do whatever it wants
When it comes time to sleep I feel the weight of the dark
And I’m afraid
What have I become

I make myself sick
And I’m sinking quick
I make myself sick
I make myself sick
I’ve become the poison
That started it all
This is the fall
This is the fall

I make myself sick
And I’m sinking quick
I make myself sick
I make myself sick
I’ve become the poison
That started it all
This is the fall
This is the fall
Track Name: Liar, Liar
You’ve got lies so sharp they cut my tongue
And I thank God that I’m still young
As much as I want you to be the one
I’m afraid our days are done

Out the door and down the road
What you think and what I know
Trust isn’t something that comes and goes
I’m on my way, you’re on your own

All the times I couldn’t breathe
Everything you didn’t see
Now you’re down on your knees
Just in time to watch me leave

I’m gone, I’m free You don’t got a hold on me
I’m gone, I’m free You let me down now let me be
I’m gone, I’m free Liar lying through his teeth
I’m gone, I’m free ‘Cause this time I’m not gonna believe

Took me so long to get away
I don’t believe a thing you say
Nothing you could do to make me stay
I’m in tomorrow, you’re in yesterday

All those worthless tears I cried
Gave you 1 and 2 but not 3 times
You don’t get to only just start to try
You say hello, I say goodbye

To all those times I couldn’t breathe
Everything you didn’t see
Now you’re down on your knees
Just in time to watch me leave

I’m gone, I’m free You don’t got a hold on me
I’m gone, I’m free You let me down now let me be
I’m gone, I’m free Liar lying through his teeth
I’m gone, I’m free ‘Cause this time I’m not gonna believe

Were you just too good to be tied down
Is that why you went and got around
Yeah you spit lies with every breath
I won’t forgive and I won’t forget

I’m gone, I’m free You don’t got a hold on me
I’m gone, I’m free You let me down now let me be
I’m gone, I’m free Liar lying through his teeth
I’m gone, I’m free ‘Cause this time I’m not gonna believe
Track Name: Choke
With your words you make it so
That it seems my lips have a mind of their own
I’m in love with the idea of you and me
It’s so close I can taste it and I want it so bad baby

You make it hard to speak, the things that you say
Get my heart racing and take my breath away
Makes my mind go blank and all I feel is desire
My knees go weak, heart skips a beat and I am on fire

Let’s drink some wine and find a way to pass the time
I want to feel your innocence dripping from your skin
And soaking into mine

You have no idea
How badly I want your love
To see it, feel it, taste it, oh
How it makes me lust

Yeah you choke out my desire
Like a snake around my throat
Then leave me stranded and if that’s not enough
I can’t seem to let go

Let’s drink some wine and find a way to pass the time
I want to feel your innocence dripping from your skin
And soaking into mine

Let’s drink some wine and find a way to pass the time
I want to feel your innocence dripping from your skin
And soaking into mine
Soaking into mine
Track Name: One
The night is gone, I haven’t slept
You’re safe in bed and I bet
You didn’t dream about me

I wish I was the one
That got to sing you to sleep
I wish I was the one
That got to sing you to sleep
I wish I was the one

All the thoughts in my head
Make it so hard to forget
You’re not thinking of me

The doctor said I should take my pills
I lied and I said “I will”
But the pain is all I have

I wish I was the one
That got to sing you to sleep
I wish I was the one
That got to sing you to sleep
I wish I was the one

It’s all in my head
It’s all in my head
It’s all in my head
It’s all in my head

There’s a song in my head
But the melody is dead
And you’re not singing for me

The doctor said I should take my pills
I lied and I said “I will”
But the pain is all I have

I wish I was the one
Track Name: The Fall II
Darling, don't play me just any old song
Darling, sing me the melody you've been dreaming of
Darling, the one you're always humming along to

Darling, don't sing me just any old words
Darling, you know I'll cling to every verse
Darling, I'll sing the harmony while you strum the chords

And it might sting afterwards
but it's worth it to have heard
than not to at all

This is the only love song I'll ever write
It's for you, and it's for that night
I swear I fell for you right away
This is me wearing my heart on my sleeve
It's for you to take or for you to leave
What I would give to hear you say
You love me too

Darling, don't hold me like it's any embrace
Darling, you know how it makes my heart race
Darling, you know the way that I hold you

And it might sting after all
but it's worth it to fall
than not to at all

Everyone that I've fell for before
Has broken me down and broken me more
I'm sorry if I'm damaged goods
But my love is strong and my heart is warm
And I've never felt anything like this before
I'm all yours if you want

This is the only love song I'll ever write
It's for you, and it's for that night
I swear I fell for you right away
This is me wearing my heart on my sleeve
It's for you to take or for you to leave
What I would give to hear you say
You love me too
