Track Name: The Letter
Sweat, and blood, and ink I've spent
But I saved my tears
I won't spring a leak for them
Sharply dressed and ill at ease
Like a sucker keen to please
The man, the boss, the teacher

I have tried to fall in love
It did nothing more than leave me messed up
Some wild, bitter baby
Now I'm crying for whoever

Contentment would have made
All things pass and change
I wish you could
Have lived your life

All the things you would have seen
Oh the man you should have been
I would stand beside you
Now the hours and seconds crawl
Make me question it all again
Why my boy, my son, my light?

You'd have found someone to love
Someone sweet and kind, a lot like you
She'd be your everything
And it would have saved you

Contentment would have made
All things pass and change
I wish you could
Have lived your life
Track Name: Dead End Lover
Hey, Pollyanna do you like champagne?
Do you like the sensation of cheap cocaine?
Then come home with me, I’m holding everything here in my hands
Have you seen me? Do you know my face?
I’m your dead end lover in this run down place
So come lie with me, it’s meant to be

I’m in love again
And boom
You’re in love again

And it feels like the first time
Always feels like the first time
Dead end lover
I’m your dead end lover

Jane, can I keep you? Can I make you mine?
You’re my muse, you’re my sun, you’re my waste of time
So don’t leave me, it’s hard to be living alone
Are you lonely? Are you lost like me?
Do you fear for the future, for what might be?
Then don’t question it, don’t wait

I’m in love again
And boom
You’re in love again

And it feels like the first time
Always feels like the first time
Don’t it feel like the first time?
Dead end lover
I’m your dead end lover
Track Name: When You Gonna Come Back?
When you gonna come back, come back to me?
I’m getting tired but I can hardly sleep
Another drink or two will make me think of you and that is all I do
When you gonna notice all the things I do?
Give me the chance to prove myself to you
I’m going to stay up late, I’m going to contemplate what
else could I do?

When you gonna come back, come back to me?
I’m everything you need but you’ve got me on my knees
When you gonna come back, come back to me again?

Do you have to be so cruel?
I’ve fallen deep and I’m in love with you
I wish for wedding bells
And us to set our sails across an ocean blue
Do you have to be so cold?
I’m offering you my body and my soul
There’s nothing else you’ll need, you get it all from me
Together we’ll grow old

When you gonna come back, come back to me?
I’m everything you need but you’ve got me on my knees
When you gonna come back, come back to me again?
Track Name: The Rules For Lovers
Hello, goodbye
So long, goodnight
The sound, the size
Of truth, of lies
A kick, a word
Unsaid, unheard

Who decides the rules for lovers like you and I?
We choose each other and we find no other lover

With, without
We trust, we doubt
To find, to lose
We hurt, we bruise
The hand, the heart
An end, a start

Who decides the rules for lovers like you and I?
We choose each other and we find no other lover

A sky, a night
The black, the white
A push, a pull
The prince, the fool
The harsh, the kind
A day, a life

Who decides the rules for lovers like you and I?
We choose each other and we find no other lover
