Track Name: Never Sing The Same Song Twice
Never sing the same song twice
Never bet on the dice
For it all falls down in the end

Never swim when you can fly
Never dance with a lie
For it all falls down in the end

Never spit on the wise
Never laugh when she cries
For it all falls down in the end

I never told her why
She never looks me in the eyes
And it all falls down in the end
Track Name: Blame
All this love and all this pain
Can’t write a song and it’s you to blame
Every word your face and chord your taste
And these goddam rhymes are a fall from grace

But here it goes
There it goes

See the more I love the more I lose
The I dream I dream of you
And I suppose I wear my heart on my sleeve
I suppose it time for you to leave

And here she goes
There she goes

All this love and all this pain
Can’t write a song and it’s you to blame
Track Name: Deception
Stars in the sky I'm alone again
Like a bird flying high on the weary wind
Song in the air singing come my way

Blind to the beast below the waves
Blind to the devil as she slowly bathes
Song in the air singing come my way

Oh the deception nothings ever as it seems

Stars in the sky I'm alone again
Like a bird flying high on the weary wind
Song in the air singing come my way
Song in the air gonna ease my pain

Blind to the beast below the waves
Blind to the devil as she slowly bathes
Song in the air singing come my way
Song in the air gonna ease my pain

Oh the deception nothings ever as it seems
Track Name: It Takes Its Time
Someday we’ll be fine
On highways with heaven on our minds
On birthdays sorrow comes in rhymes
And there’s no way to hold it inside

Oh today you would be five
Like a flash before our eyes
Oh but time here does not fly

It drags on
It drags on and takes its time

Oh love please don’t go oh we hope you know
We dared to dream and we dare to believe
Someday we’ll be fine
On highways with heaven on our minds
It takes its time
It takes its time
Track Name: Now Or Never
She is my fire in the rain
And she warms my soul
It’s now or never

Swear I’ll you mine If you take me whole
All of me
It’s now or never

You will always be
The better part of me
One in heart and body
One love story
Track Name: So What
So what
Nothing to do but
Forfeit and lose
With nothing to prove

Believe me
This won't be easy
It's all just the same
I’m tired of these games

So I’ll be on my way
And live another day
Broke my heart in so many ways
You wish I'd stay I wish it were safe

‘Cause you'll be coming back sober
Calling me lover
Saying you've changed

But Baby your love is a liar
Your words they will wither
And quickly fade

And all them demons and bottles
All them old fossils
Will escape

Feel the fear come crashing
Raging and thrashing
Like a tidal wave
Track Name: Black Tar
Yeah come on black tar
Work your magic in my vines
Yeah come on black star
Shine your light ease my pain

And May your path be true
And forgive me please for I know not what I
But I do it all for you
They sell my soul
You know I'm dead right throw
Oh at least I have you

Yeah come on black tar
Kill the memories in my brain
Yeah come on black star
You’re no good to me until you ease my pain

Oh black tar baby don't you be shy
Come on and wrap you arms around me tight
And tell that oh everything is fine
Come on and whisper in my ear well only sweat lies

And May your path be true
And forgive me please for I know not what I do
But I do it all for you
You know they they sell my soul
Oh I'm dead right through
I'm dead right through
I'm dead right through

Oh at least I have you
Oh at least I have you
Oh at least I have you
Track Name: Say It Ain't So
Say it ain’t so
Please don’t go
Stay here with me
And finish this bottle of wine

‘Cause we both know
Time won’t slow
So don’t wast this love
On a cheap cold goodbye

Oh save
Save it for someone who cares
Save it for some other ears
‘Cause I’ve heard it before

Save
Save it for someone else
Some other book on your shelf
‘Cause I’m tired of your lies
Your lies
Track Name: It's Funny She Said
It‘s funny he said
funny how lost you can feel when your love is dead
dead to the world cause of all the things you loved instead

It‘s funny she said
funny how lost you can feel when your love is dead
dead to the world cause of all the things that were left unsaid

What now what am I supposed to do now
Is the light still burning or is it fading out
Track Name: A Fall Is A Fall
Sing it out but keep it sweet
Let it rise and let it be
Take your first steps
Trust your instincts
And fall in love

It is strong when you’re weak
Like solid ground beneath your feet
Take your first steps
Trust your instincts
And fall in love

Don’t hold on honey but let go
Risk the pain of losing all this tomorrow
A fall is a fall but we ain’t crashing solo
We have to wait and see
Track Name: Time Of Your Life
Some may say it's wasted
But you're not wasted
This is the time of your life
To live and learn
Or crash and burn

The time of your life
To live and learn
Or crash and burn
The time of your life

You only do what you know
Try to play it cool and take it slow
Try to be tough but you we can the knees
Try to go numb when your heart wants to beat

You fall in love and now you know
Another breakdown here we go
Watch them lies coming in fast
Taking names saying nothing will last
Track Name: (bonus) Though I'm Gone
Don’t you forget about me
Remember us
Don’t you forget about me
Remember my touch

Don’t you forget about me
Remember us
Don’t you forget about me
Remember my love

Though I’m gone
Its alright to be happy
So be happy

Though I’m gone
Its alright to remember
September
