Track Name: Paint the Town
I've met a million people, none half as pretty as you
Though some have held my gaze
It's not a simple reason, why I fell for you so soon
You left my mind in a daze

I thought I could be, what you wanted to see
And now there's nothing left at all
But a comforting song

Of how I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine
Floating away till the end of the day
When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away

Now that my heart is broken, it doesn't beat like it used to
Sometimes I'd felt it before
Though you don't even know it, it's been that way since I saw you
But now it skips all the more so

Now I cry a few tears
Maybe wait a few years
I thought you'd always be alone
But boy was I wrong

So I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine
Floating away till the end of the day
When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away

I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine
Floating away till the end of the day
When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away

I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine
Floating away till the end of the day
When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away

I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine
Floating away till the end of the day
When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away
Track Name: Sea of Green, Sky of Blue
You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again

Wasting your time, while you spend mine,
Flattering all of your flaws for your affection
Thinking of ways to give you all of my days
If for only the chance that you'll smile for me honestly
But you don't care what I got, ignore the complimenting whether or not it's true
You've heard it all before, I knew you wanted more
Than I could ever offer

Sea of green, sky of blue
How I wish I was with you
When all the world was oh so colorful
It's been so long since you were gone
That all the world has gone to grey
My love for you has
Gone away, gone away, gone away
Gone away, gone away, gone away

You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again

It hasn't happened just yet, but willing to bet
In a couple of years you'll be wishing you had listened
It's just a matter of time before they finally rhyme
There's only so many words I could use to show you what I mean
Now are you hearing me right?
You may be missing the picture despite the clues
You've seen it all before, I knew you wanted more
Than I could ever offer

Sea of green, sky of blue
How I wish I was with you
When all the world was oh so colorful
It's been so long since you were gone
That all the world has gone to grey
My love for you has gone away

Sea of green, sky of blue
How I wish I was with you
When all the world was oh so colorful
It's been so long since you were gone
That all the world has gone to grey
My love for you has
Gone away, gone away, gone away
Gone away, gone away, gone away

You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again
You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again
You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again
Track Name: All I Need
She thinks it's all a game if she's still playing, there's no one she can't beat
She'll gladly break the rules we're all obeying, but she's still all I need

She's about to come my way, can't think of what to talk about
I usually have a lot to say but now the words aren't coming out
It's the way she walks that always makes it hard to pass her by
And when she's gone I'm always wondering why

She thinks it's not a joke if she's not laughing, looks down on comedy
No need for fun and games if she's not fooling, but she's still all I need
The way she wears a frown is all it takes to bring me down and if she's not gonna stay then i'm not gonna stick around
It's the way she whines that always makes her hard to satisfy, she likes to tell me if she's feeling fine

Though she thinks it's all a play if she's still acting, this show's not fooling me
She portrays it well, but the role is still distracting yet she's still all I need

It's true that it's all just a game to her, and she doesn't play to lose but she just can't seem to learn all the rules

Everyday she speaks her mind and I'm the one that has to care
But she's too preoccupied to know when I'm not even there
It's the way she talks that always makes it hard to say goodbye, this conversation's running out of time

She thinks it's all a game if she's still playing, there's no one she can't beat
She'll gladly break the rules we're all obeying, but she's still all I need

She thinks it's not okay if she's not happy, it's all just me, me, me
But the day will come when I'll be gone and she'll be thinking that she's still all I need, need, need
Track Name: Shelley (Please Don't Lie)
Please don't lead him on, please don't lead him on

Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on
Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on

You say there's no where else you'd rather go but I know

The thing you're looking for, the thing you're looking for

Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on
Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on

Please don't lie to me, please don't lie

The thrills are gone, they start to yawn, the fools are saying no, and so
There's no one left show, there's no one left to show

Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on
Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on
Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on
Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on

Please don't lie to me, please don't lie

Please don't lie to me, please don't lie to me
Track Name: Tattoo On Her Shoulder
There's a tattoo on her shoulder, it's a heart, though she's had one from the start
Her hair is black but there are streaks of blonde, you can't tell which side she's really on
And there's something on her mind, it's plain to see that she's preoccupied
Though she'd like to leave it all behind, it was all a mistake

She's holding on, as she sings her song
She's holding on, day after day

She goes alone and drifts away, to places felt but never known
A shadow fills the spaces in between, a void is all she's ever seen
Though it's hard for us to tell, but she knows it well she almost fell off
The eggshells that she's walking on, they're starting to break

She's holding on, as she sings her song
She's holding on, day after day
She's holding on, as she sings her song
She's holding on, day after day after day after day

But as the light shines on her eye, you see the window's closed, the soul is gone
Now the night gives way to the coming dawn, she's starting to wake

She's holding on, as she sings her song
She's holding on, day after day
She's holding on, as she sings her song
She's holding on, day after day

She's holding on, she's holding on
She's holding on and on and on
She's holding on
