Track Name: Hum
If effort was money I wouldn't even have a dime
And you'd be sitting on stacks 25 miles high
I don't wanna like you
I know you're no good for me
But there's something about how you carry yourself that appeals to me

I know you're no good for me

After I met you, the sound of the rain
Was the only noise in existence that could possibly keep me sane
I don't wanna like you
I know you're no good for me
But ever since I kissed your mouth, my plants have never looked so green

I know you're no good for me

They constantly tell you to, "keep your eyes on the prize"
But your smile was so bright, it burned a hole right through mine
I don't wanna like you
I know you're no good for me
But our memories keep me warmer than the brightest star you can see

I know you're no good for me
Track Name: Would Have Been Nice
Right from the start
I knew you were up to no good
The taste you left on my tongue
Was bitter and misunderstood

Oh I hated the player
And did I hate the game
I hated the way the lights
Made you illuminate

Shivering from you and the cold
Either way you didn't lend me your coat

I crossed my heart as you crossed the line
What's the point if I'm just wasting your time
Open arms don't mean a thing
Trust no one who makes the caged bird sing

Second chances are at fault to blame
Cause I loved the way your lips curve when you say my name

A stranger in passing is what I wish you are
Your hand on my heart sounds like the rain on my car

Shivering from you and the cold
Either way you didn't lend me your coat

I crossed my heart as you crossed the line
What's the point if I'm just wasting your time
Open arms don't mean a thing
Trust no one who makes the caged bird sing
Track Name: Red Light
Red light and you tell me to go
First fight and I hit the road
Tired minds with no effort to show
Warning signs but I keep my eyes closed

Funny feelings are never what they seem
Gravity is increasing between you and me
Things no longer what they used to be
Coming together just to burst at the seams

Your bright eyes make me go blind
Nervous smiles make the most of my time
Mixed signals and I should change my mind
But I'm in your head and you're in mine

All these feelings and I don't know what to do
Swear you're the one for me and I am for you
Confused since the beginning could use a clue
But moving on seems easy, guess that's what I'll do

Shades of yellow and I feel just fine
We know distance doesn't mean goodbye
My skin covered in warm sunshine
And I can leave knowing we gave it a try
Track Name: Time to Go
Never do the leaving guess that means that I'm the one being left
Hard to see the road when you're the only thought that's clouding my head

Guess that they were right
When they talked about driving blind
Only problem is that you're still on my mind

Sick of all the waiting just to find that things stay the same
Looking for a place where the only constant is change

Throwing darts at a map
Looks like I'm never coming back
My only problem now is that I still know where you're at

Now that I am leaving guess that means that you're the one being left
Swallowing the words that were always left unsaid

Relieved of the whole load
I'd like to think I'm in control
The only problem now is that I don't know where to go
Track Name: I Am Alive
I am the light
That kisses the nape of your neck

I will not hide (behind the blinds)
While you rest

I want to feel alive
Make me feel alive

I am the dust
That lands on your cheek

I have your trust and confidence
To hold the secrets that you keep

Make me feel alive
I want to feel alive

Make me feel alive
I want to feel alive

One last time
