Stop You 02:42
I wanna to put a stop to You feeling bad But if you wanna stay mad I'm not gonna stop you I know you wanna scream at Your dead beat dad But then you just Go buy some plaid instead and I'm not gonna stop you I know I make a good Landing pad But I must say this rage is Just a tad Too much for me I'm just trying to get happy myself I just wanna step out Shake some new hands Maybe I'll understand something more and I don't wanna leave without you (Instrumental) You make me wanna try to change the wiring of man But then you feel small and he's just a sad old fad Well, that's fine with me But does that make you happy yourself? I wanna put a stop to You feeling so bad most times But if you wanna stay mad I'm never gonna stop you

The Beast 03:42
The beast said he never thought he'd see me going But then again he must have had a way of knowing. That one more winter would turn into the next. Then he'd dangle the sun and my soul would need a rest. I always told myself That this never would be over How can I know myself Unless I tell the story over When I came here I was barely standing I learned the art of a smoother landing I met the people who comprise my heart And if I know them at all they would want me to start. And I always told myself That this never would be over How can I know myself Unless I ​tell the story over (inst). I always tell myself What I've always told myself and I've always told myself what I always tell myself I couldn't think of someone who could love me better You can take me from the ​city we can go wherever ​It would be such a disservice to myself to stay Just because I don't want to change so I push you away I always tell myself What I've always told myself and I've always told myself what I always tell myself And what I've always told myself Is that this never will be over And I told myself again the day I looked over my shoulder

Tired of Me 03:19
​Tired of Me I've been trying to change my ways gracefully Somedays I can own my shit or I make it your responsibility Are you tired of me yet I love you too but I forget what you just said​ ​I can count the reasons why I've got all my insecurities But when I push them all aside you're just the best thing I've got going No I'm not tired of you yet And I'm so sorry for all the times I get so stuck in my head Cause you know time (Takes so long sometimes) But not for long (I don't feel that young anymore) Are you still mine (Day night, uphill climb) And you say yeah and it just blows my mind.​ ​(Inst). So you and I let's just forge ahead And I'll try to keep comparisons to a minimum before we're both dead But are you tired of me yet You say you love me and then minutes later I forget So that's what I will try to do Try to be a bit kinder to myself for you

Good Ship 04:07
It's coming along We've both got our limitations I never asked you to be strong But you are guilty by association And if you feel I've asked too much of you Well then it's true But at least I know I did all I could do Now did I get this wrong You heard my name and it was an ego blow And you just want to belong Do you think you know her, no I don't think so I thought we had at last agreed this bullshit was the past But go on carry on any way you'd like to Cause it's not that you're gone It's the vacuum that's been created I am good, I am strong What we had is unrelated How's it coming along Are you taking time to see a new light Are you singing new songs I said that I'd try, not that I'd fight Time does its humble best The hardest part of coming west And I will come around anywhere that I want to Been so long I've been gone How's the past being recreated I know what's right I know what's wrong When my good ship comes it's cause I waited You don't want good, you don't want strong It's coming along We've both got our limitations

Tell me the reason that you go Look at yourself and it's into the throes Days that pass are the ground below Right up above, you find not so long ago
