Time Alone 05:31
You think I can save you I don't want to I've seen how my sisters do Rescue every man I'm saving myself first I've been through enough hurt I know what my love is worth I have a plan I have a plan When you're hurting you call my name I wish I could do the same This ain't no easy game I take care of me I'm not trying to run away I need time to think and pray If you're gonna stay I got to stay free Why do you think I gotta save your life To prove my heart Why do you wonder Why I wanna spend Some time apart Why do you press me To solve your problems I got my own I like you But I need some time Some time alone Some time alone Why do you think I gotta save your life To prove my heart Why do you wonder Why I wanna spend Some time apart Why do you press me To solve your problems When I got my own I like you But I need some time Some time alone Some time alone Time alone Alone Alone Alone Why do you think I gotta save your life To prove my heart Why do you wonder Why I wanna spend Some time apart Why do you press me To solve your problems I got my own I like you But I need some time Some time alone Some time alone Why do you think I gotta save your life To prove my heart Why do you wonder Why I wanna spend Some time apart Why do you press me To solve your problems I got my own I like you But I need some time Some time alone Some time Some time alone Some time alone

Let You Know 03:31
I told you when I met you We got someplace to be We've been trying to get there ever since Tryna get our lovin' free I think about you every morning Talk sweet to you every night You know if you was next to me I'd love you good, I'd treat you right But I say Do what you got to do Do what you gotta do I'll let you know if I can't stay But I'll stay in love with you You know that I've been broken I think the devil knows my name I fought to hold on to my shattered heart I hope that nothing, nothing stays the same I gotta ask a few more questions I won't tell any lies You say you want me to be happy I believe you, I see it in your eyes When you say Do what you got to do Do what you gotta do I'll let you know if I can't stay But I'll stay in love with you I tell myself we'll be together I'm always searching for a sign But that's the thing about this long-hearted love The future never comes on time I keep on dreaming 'bout forever While we living for today One thing I learn from every journey Is I don't get scared when I don't know the way You gotta Do what you got to do Do what you gotta do I'll let you know if I can't stay But I'll stay in love I'll stay in love Do what you got to do Do what you gotta do I'll let you know if I can't stay But I'll stay In love with you

See You 06:23
You Want to do Things you knew Before you came my way We Trying to be Something free Do you know how to stay Did you find the sweetness You were searching for Did you find the chaos That you came here for It's more than your mind It's more than your heart I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I see you I see you I see you Tell me that you want me Do you want me Tell me that you need me Do you want to need me Tell me that we'll stay free Don't you want to stay free Promise me we'll stay free Do you see me It's more than your mind It's more than your heart I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I wish that you could see What I see When I see you I see you I see you I see you You I see you You I see you

Water 01:32
Take me to the water Take me somewhere I belong And I know now that I was wrong And I think I been gone too long But I'm back now to make it right I'm coming home to you tonight Home to you tonight Take me to the ocean Take me somewhere I'll feel small Take me to the river Somewhere I can leave it all Take me to the water Take me somewhere I belong And I know now that I was wrong And I think I been gone too long But I'm back now to make it right I'm coming home to you tonight Home to you tonight

Long-Hearted 06:25
You were not strange Didn't ask me to change Only rearrange To love you Instead, I fell apart First crumbs, and then my heart You were too steady for that life I knew I still don't believe That you will not leave But you have convinced me to live in a world where you stay I never believed In enough I never believed In another day Now maybe I understand Why, why I am this way Ooh, I'm so unnatural to myself Just a projection of your love Caught in the strangeness of loving you And each day I feel something new Oh, the certainty of this ache The uncertainty of its source Oh, my ignorance I don't know, I don't know, I don't know I don't know its natural course Who am I? Who am I? To bear a love This long, long, long long-hearted love long-hearted love Ooh, I'm so unnatural to myself Just a projection of your love Caught in the strangeness of loving you And each day I feel something new Oh, the certainty of this ache The uncertainty of its source Oh, my ignorance I don't know, I don't know I don't know its natural course Who am I? Who am I? To bear a love This long, long, long long-hearted love long-hearted love Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?

Drink 03:32
What did you want? What did you ask me for? What did you want? What did you want? What did you take me for? What did you want? Don't wanna say your name Don't wanna play your game You know we're not the same What did you think? Don't wanna think about you Don't wanna sink without you You know I drink about you You know I drink I got whiskey I got wine Beer and bourbon Turpentine Pour me somethin' Somethin' new I still want you Wait Long Work Week Stay Strong Day Keep Take Time Make War Give Live More More I want more Don't wanna say your name Don't wanna play your game You know we're not the same What did you think? Don't wanna think about you Don't wanna sink without you I drink about you I drink I got whiskey I got wine Beer and bourbon Turpentine Pour me somethin' Somethin' new I still want you He Left She Gone They Say Night Dawn Hope Green Thirst Real Lie Cry Feel Feel Don't wanna say your name Don't wanna play your game We're not the same What did you think? Don't wanna think about you Don't wanna sink without you I drink about you You know I drink Whiskey Wine Beer and bourbon Turpentine Pour me somethin' Somethin' new I still want you What did you want? What did you ask me for? What did you want? What did you want? What did you take me for? What did you want?

Empath 04:18
I know what you're hungry for I watched you open every door Come and dance with me, We are the same You know my name You'll never feel ashamed They tell us what is real They tell us what is right They tell us how to feel They tell us how to fight Take my hand I know the way I know where you want to be I know why you want to stay I got that recipe Missing in your life right now One recipe You can't seem to find One recipe, Without it, you just don't know how One recipe Can't get it out your mind The mixed hunger Of turning back The journey so bittersweet Trying to get everything back One medicine One prayer One leaf from when you were there One recipe One tea That one potion from when you were free I know what you're hurting for Ask for healing, prepare for war Forever promised, coming soon I love you salt in every wound You know all the careful games we play Teach me how to leave, Teach me how to stay Up all night My eyes rubbed raw I love you snow I love you thaw
