Track Name: Those Years
Stay in my life
Stay by my side
This is the time for me

And all those years you’ve passed me by
You have not felt sorry
You decide to say goodbye for me

Let’s go outside
Let’s close our eyes
Stay up all night for me
Track Name: Reason to Cry
Having only myself to blame / Hard to describe when i can never seem to concentrate / And the things you said last night / Have all but passed me by / Feeling rather lonesome / Is never good for you but makes me feel important / And i don’t need to wonder why it keeps you up at night / Then i just take a deep breath, and from the corners of my mind i think about when we met / Then i sometimes recognize that i’ve got no reason to cry / And it might take some convincing / at this point your acquaintances have all but written me off / and you’re finding they were right all along
Track Name: Losing My Love
Say you’ll always be with me, and I’ll be fine / You’ll always have me there in your mind / Take a picture of us two / It’s not for me / It’s so that I can be there with you / Losing my love, I’m losing my love, losing my love, losing my love
Track Name: You Can Tell
You haven’t been around for a couple days / and I won’t pretend to understand why I’m feeling this way / A combination of no obligations, a relief / and a sinking thought like I’ve got something just out of reach / You must wonder what’s going through my mind besides the alphabet, counting to six and prehistoric times / Sitting on the couch because I want to be alone, barely able to express myself aloud when you’re at home / Adjusting to having to think about more than myself / is not so simple for me, and I know you can tell / I never once considered that I might rather be alone / Tell me you didn’t tell your mom we’re not getting along
Track Name: All I
Here’s all i need to know for now, and will it make a difference anyhow / I ask what i don’t want to know / ’cause once it’s there, I’ll never let it go / So tell me all you know / And don’t leave a thing out / I never want to be the one / Who dwells until it’s too hard to have fun / So tell me when it’s weird for you / I’ll try to tell you what I’m going through / You know just what to do to make me crazy
Track Name: I Will Sing
Can’t believe this day / Want it to be over now / Thinking of a way to get out / Sneaky but i know you can’t trust a girl who doesn’t let it show who she is, does she know, do I care if she goes / I will sing, and I will dance / I’ll make the most of this circumstance / Won’t interfere with your plans / You will see you lie to me, and I won’t be around one more day / I’ll always go my own way
Track Name: My Pain
You’re causing all my pain / We’ll never be the same / But still I try every time / Set myself up / To be denied / I see you’re back with him / I just can’t watch again / I have to try to be strong / Now that I know / It was him all along
Track Name: Wake Up
You’re going on when nobody cares / You think you’re smart, yet you get nowhere / Wake up, look around / No friends can be found / You’re using drugs, you use your girlfriend / One day she’ll learn, and it all will end / Wake up, look around / No friends can be found
