Track Name: Catch
I went out a hunting
I got me a catch
He has no idea
I am gonna throw him back

Sometimes in this life
You gotta throw it all in for nothing
You might end up broken hearted baby
But didn't you learn something

He said he'd always love me
I gave him everything I had
He said he'd always love me
I gave him the clothes off my back

Sometimes in this life
You gotta throw it all in for nothing
You might end up broken hearted baby
But didn't you learn something

I went out a hunting
I got me a catch
He has no idea
I'm never gonna throw him back
Track Name: Change
The wind down the south is blowing a gale
It's winter in me, but outside seems great
And my sister won't talk, cause I stuffed up again
Apparently I'm lost on a jaded steam train
Sometimes she's right, but this time i'm frail
My candles burnt out, but I'm desperately trying to find flame
Which happened last night, when you spoke my name
You saw my eyes light up, like there was a change coming...

And Change, any kind of change will do
Cause I'm broke, and I've got a hole in my pocket

I think that my mother would somehow be proud
She can sing too, we just chose different paths
And my lover he shines without polishing the glass
He can't help me no more, it's my turn to ask

For Change, any kind of change will do
Cause I'm broke, and I got a hole in my pocket
Tears in my eye sockets
And I'm missing half my locket
My hearts taken a beating

And Change
Any kind of change will do
Cause I'm broke right now
And I've got a hole in my pocket
Tears in my eye sockets
And I'm missing half my locket
Track Name: Shattering
I’m not weak but im not getting better yet
They say it takes time, I got time to spare
You left a big fat hole in the middle of my chest
In the middle of my chest
In the middle of my chest
 
I’m not made of porcelain
I can take your words I can take your lies
I’m not shattering
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
 
They call the last drinks, I’m packing up my things
Ready to hit the road to a home that I just met
I could of broken down but I’m just a little bit messed
I’m Just a little bit messed
I’m Just a little bit messed
 
I’m not made of porcelain
I can take your words I can take your lies
I’m not shattering
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
 
I’m looking around a hole lot more these days
Trying to figure out which step I gotta take
I catch the whiskey train and im straight back off again
Yeah I’m straight back off again
No whiskey ain’t my friend

I’m not made of porcelain
I can take your words I can take your lies
I’m not shattering
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
For anyone that can’t look into my eyes
Track Name: Brain to Water
You turn my Brain to Water
But my heart to gold
You don't want my daughter
But she'd be beautiful
Oh theres nothing more to say
Put your big shoes on and walk away

You love flora and fauna
And travelling
And I love putting on make up
And entertaining

Oh theres nothing more to say
Put your apples on and walk away

And change
How I wish I could make you stay
I wanna throw up
Every time I think about you not by my side
and on the other side of the world

Oh theres nothing more to say
No one else will ever take your place
oh there's nothing more to say
Track Name: Manchester
It's important to think ahead
Flash flash goes the signs
Drugs and booze and bad situations
Will be the cause of the fire

We are singing like birds on the water
Skeletons with faith
The time is coming
It's nearly the end
You have a choice to make
Now make it

Don't be wasting sorry on me yet
You're not old enough to use it yet
When the sun sets over there
You'll be sleeping next to her
And I'll be at that lane
Sundered

I'm like a dolly
With cheeks so rosy
You could swear I came to life
Unlike Miss Polly you burn the kettle cause its black
but so have I been lately

We are singing like birds on the water
Waste of time I say
The time is coming its nearly the end
You have a choice to make
Now make it

Don't be wasting sorry on me yet
You're not old enough to use it yet
When the sun sets over there
You'll be sleeping next to her
And I'll be at that lane
Sundered
Like thunder
Torn from the mother
Apology accepted

Don't be late, don't be late, don't be late now
I got me, I got me, I got me an alibi
You owe me, you owe me, you owe me
apologise
You owe me, you owe me
You owe me, apologise
Apologise
Apologise
Apologise

Don't be wasting sorry on me yet
You're not old enough to use it yet
When the sun sets over there
You'll be sleeping next to her
And I'll be at that lane
Sundered
Track Name: Never
We're on the same shore
We get the same scores
It doesn't have to go the way it went before
We had the hard times
Don't you worry your mind
It's doesn't have to go the way it went before

And I advertise my love around you like a trailer
We sail the seas up and down all the time like we're sailors
But we hold the tricks of the trade now don't ya think baby
We don't have to go back to that way no never

We play the same tunes
we fight till we're through
it doesn't have to go the way it went before
You buy me strange plants
Then you make me dance
It doesn't have to go the way it went before

And I advertise my love around you like a trailer
We sail the seas up and down all the time like we're sailors
But we hold the tricks of the trade now don't ya think baby
We don't have to go back to that way no never

No Never

And I advertise my love around you like a trailer
We sail the seas up and down all the time like we're sailors
But we hold the tricks of the trade now don't ya think baby
We don't have to go back to that way no never
No never
Track Name: Trainwreck
Trainwreck broke my neck
Sat on the curb with a real fine girl
I'm a trainwreck
woah
If I keep running gonna have a lot of nothing at the end of this day
Trainwreck can I have you back have you ever seen a woman love a man like that
I'm a trainwreck, woah
If I keep running gonna be a lot of nothing at the end of this day
If I keep running gonna be a lot of nothing at the end of this day

I know I've got a lot to own up to
Got a lot of drinking under my belt
Home wrecked ready set
I found myself alone
Gonna fix all I have done
Train wreck

Mamma said, just be good, don't go shooting off your hood
I'm a train wreck woah
So off the rails cement my name in 6 feet
So off the rails cement my name in 6 feet
mmm

I know I've got a lot to own up to
Got a lot of thinking under my belt
Home wrecked ready set
I found myself alone
Gonna fix all I have done
Trainwreck
Trainwreck

Trainwreck woah
Trainwreck woah
Trainwreck woah
Woah

I know I've got a lot to own up to
Got a lot of mischief under my belt
Home wrecked ready set
I found myself alone
Gonna fix all I have done
Trainwreck
Trainwreck
Trainwreck
Trainwreck
Track Name: Look at our love
Look at it all
Coating the bitter on you
To make us feel anything but gratitude
Taking a boat road out to the river so deep
Drop it all in, can you forgive me?

Look at our love
Now How
We get so black
Now

Saved it all up, from the start of the century
Digging a hole
Throw in all my integrity
Cannot do anything that walks around right
So I do everything to walk at night

Look at our love
Now How
We get so black
Now

These questions I ask are everything to do with you, to do with me
Do not walk away, do not raise your voice do not hit the ceiling just tell me it cannot get worse
We cannot be running away
We cannot be running away
We cannot be running, cannot be running, cannot be running

Now How
Look at our love Now
How'd we get so black
Now

We cannot be running
We cannot be running
We cannot be running
Look at our love now
Track Name: Fighter
A ghost from the past keeps chasing me down the street
Begging for money begging for a place to sleep
There is nothing left here for you to take from me
I am a fighter itty bitter fighter
I'd like to meet ya
Though I was weaker now I am stronger
You're just a pencil on my paper

Remember that time you gave me your words to eat
I was so hungry dropping to my knees
I love you I'll leave her just trust me baby
I am a fighter itty bitty fighter fly on the wall
Thought I was weaker now I am stronger
You're just a minor on my keyboard

Woah

And though the years move on like a river
I still feel I need to deliver this ball
Throw it at you with all of my might
Forget the time and forget the battle
Forget the time and forget the battle
Forget the time and forget the battle
Forget the time and forget the battle

La di da da

Cause I am a fighter
Though I was weaker now I am stronger
You're just a pencil, you're just a minor, you were just a digit on my timer
Track Name: Keep it up
I went to the store and I bought you the milk
But I gave you the cow for free
I wasted a feel on a long guilt train
When I should of just waited a week
Now I keep spending my life is spinning
Continuously out of shape
Although its exciting I find it frightening
To be that way

I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up
I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up

I blame my mother for building me honest
But I'm glad she brought me up that way
Cause I love a salesman and I trust him well
Enough to buy a life for me

I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up
I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up

He's so beautiful like a wonderful second hand man thats in repair
Who gives a shit if I gave everything to make him feel like a man

I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up
I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up

I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep it up
I can keep it up I can keep it up I can keep this up

k k k keep it up, keep it up, keep it up
Track Name: Don't you let me down
I got faith
I got feeling
That I just don't think is worth the beating
Like our hearts are a breathing
Little bit by little bit I need you so

Theres this road, I've been walking
with the devil and my sin by my side
But you washed it away
When you said that you would walk with me the rest of my days
So don't you let me down
Don't you let me down

See my heart, young and restless
Always looking for a new way to run
There's a light in the window
And Oh Darlin how you're singing me home

Don't you let me down
Don't you let me down

I've got faith, I've got feeling
That i Just don't think is worth the beating
Like our hearts are a beating
Little bit by little bit I love you so

Don't you let me down
Don't you let me down
No Don't you let down
Don't you let me down
Track Name: People in Love
I used to wish for
I used to wish for so much more
All the limelight
All the opening doors
And that clean fine feeling I felt after your tours
I could pray myself to sleep and wake up feeling so much worse

Woah, Woah

And I can't understand why he let me on go
If it was love faith fame it was the best Id ever known
But the forces of nature would not let it be
Because people in love look like you and me

Destination so far north in the heat
Don't care where I'm heading just sit right next to me
And the crossfire on that ship out to sea
The waters so warm
I don't wanna drown again

Yeah Yeah Yeah

I don't wanna drown again yeah

And I can't understand why he let me on go
If it was love faith fame it was the best I'd ever known
But the forces of nature would not let it be
Because people in love look like you and me

Well you slammed that door
But I found more
And I can't understand why he let me on go
If it was love faith fame it was the best I'd ever know
But the forces of nature would not let it be
Because people in love look like you and me

And I can't understand
No I can't understand
But the forces of nature would not let it be
Because people in love look like you and me
