Ready To Go
When the day starts to fade and you feel alone
Paint your face and then wait by the telephone
When you hear that sound, it's just your weakness
Waiting to be found among the sleepless


As you wait you'll debate just saying 'no'
Have a drink 'til you think you're ready to go

Into a grey town to paint it bright red
Until you lay down upon the right bed


Though you say you're afraid of the typical
You parade in the shade of the physical
Maybe they won't know, if you can hide it
That you sell your soul because you like it


And when you're done having fun & feeling low,
Say 'goodnight', hit the lights, you're ready to go
To an empty room, to feel the night end
But, baby, it's too soon for you to try again


After this decision that we make
I'll be yours and you'll be my mistake
After this decision that we make
I'll be yours and you'll be my excuse for every other lie
We tell ourselves so we can have our way



What Comes Around
When I pictured our last goodbye
You were kicking and screaming
But this morning I realize
I was desperately dreaming


Because, baby, you have to go
And there’s no time for grieving
Yeah, baby, you have to go
But I’m the one leaving


Shame on me for these tears I cry
Over something expected
Shame on me for believing
My heart was ever protected


Because, baby, I have to go
Because I’m bringing you down
Yeah, baby, I should have known

This is what comes around
This is what comes around


Swing your fist, I won’t resist
I’ll end up on the floor
Do your worst, you’re not the first
No, I’ve been where you stand before


Shame on me for believing
I couldn’t feel so rejected


Because, baby, I have to go

‘Cuz I’m bringing you down

Yeah, baby, I should have known

This is what comes around

This is what comes around

 

Swing your fist, I won’t resist

I’ll end up on the floor

Do your worst, you’re not the first

No, I’ve been where you stand before

 

You will be the agent

Of all that goes around

And I will be aware as I go

That there’s a curse for swinging first

But you’ve got to do it to know
 

This One's For Me
Well, I’ve had a lot to drink and now it’s getting kind of late

So, before you listen further let’s just get this one thing straight

I’ve written many songs because, well, that’s just what I do

But this one is for me and it was never meant for you

 

So, you can turn the volume down or simply walk away

‘Cuz you’re not gonna like the sound of what I have to say

I’ll give you one more moment out of mercy and respect

But this is how I function, baby, what did you expect?

 

So, go… Carry on

And just know…

That this is all a part of moving on

Now that love has gone

 

And I don’t have the right to look a liar in the face

One who kept an open book in such an open place

And I don’t want to tell you how I came to know you lied

So you can keep pretending that you have nothing to hide

 

Like who you might’ve touched or how it all began

Or why you never hesitated making other plans

Oh, I don’t want you spending every night alone in tears

But maybe do some mourning for the death of seven years?

 

So, go… Carry on

And just know…

That this is all a part of moving on

Now that love has gone

 

And now, if you’re still listening, you must be feeling strong

Perhaps you’re thinking to yourself, “He’s gotten something wrong”

Or maybe what I saw and what I felt were never real

Or maybe you’re denying it so you don’t have to deal

 

Well, if this hurts your heart or if you’re feeling harmed

Then go back to the start and remember you were warned

You didn’t have to listen, oh, you could’ve walked away

And that’s what I keep telling myself every single day

 

So, go… Carry on

And just know…

That this is just a part of moving on

 

This is just a part of moving on

Get Up
Better find out what you haven't learned yet

That you can't expect to lie down

And hope that we forget

 

Oh, but I know... it's a feeling I get

That it's time for you wise up and rise up

It's alright, it's supposed to ache

With every step you take

 

Get up now, don't be afraid

You feel it now, but the feeling's going to fade

It's out there for you to find

You better run, now you're running out of time

 

Better find out what you haven't heard yet

That you can't expect to lie down

And hope that we forget

 

Oh, but I know... it's a feeling I get

That it's time for you to wise up and rise up

It's alright, it's supposed to ache

With every breath you take



Get up now, don't be afraid

You feel it now, but the feeling's going to fade

It's out there for you to find

You better run, now you're running out of time

 

Smoke Without A Spark
Spoken is the thought

Of a thoughtful mind

Broken is the heart

Left with something to find
 

Lonely is the heart

Lonely and resigned
Smoke without a spark
Suffocated and blind

Shaken is the fate
Of the one denied
Taken is the bait
After all has been tried

Maybe it was fate
That you and I collide
For just a little taste
Pacified

Well, my heart misses your hungry kisses
And the shiver you deliver with a simple smile
Your expression is my possession
Even if it’s only for a little while

Hopeful is the heart
Taken by surprise
Shown a little spark
Opened up in those eyes

Searching in the dark
Once upon a time
Smoke without a spark
Left behind

Well, my heart misses your hungry kisses
And the shiver you deliver with a simple smile
Your expression is my possession
Even if it’s only for a little while

Oooh, when it rains it pours on you…
 

Don't Turn Around
On that road open to anything
Heart in hand, hunger in mind
There you were dreaming of better days
There you are desperate for time

Don’t turn around
There’s nothing you could change at all

And your ghost, always a breath away
Keeping pace, shivers your spine
Straight ahead, don’t let him see your face
Mourn the dead but leave them behind

Don’t turn around
There’s nothing you could change at all
Stay in the now
There’s nothing you could change

This gets better, I know it gets better

Feels like going nowhere
Toeing the straight line
You don’t have to go there
God knows you’ll be fine

Don’t turn around
There’s nothing you could change at all
Stay in the now
Oh, there’s nothing you could change

Keep those feet on that crooked and narrow
Check your step just don’t let yourself stumble
Keep those feet on that crooked and narrow
Catch your breath just don’t let yourself…
