Track Name: Modern Handshakes
I know what you’re doing, I can see through that glare
With your finger twirling around in that hair
You’ve got my stomach turning and I don’t think it’s fair
How you are controlling me with that stare

And I’d run, if I could
But you’re a fox, so I’m the prey

You take me back to your place and you slam the door
There’s a look on your face, that I have never seen before
This devil knows exactly what she’s got in store
Without even thinking, our clothes have hit the floor

And I’d run, I know I should
But you’re a rock and my scissors will do no good

We should be taking it slow
Then who knows what we’d be
Not so sure what will be sown
Let’s not regret what we reap

The next time that we meet, it won’t be so sweet
We’ve done things that we would dare not speak
From the moment you slammed the door
And our clothes hit the floor
We both both knew there would be no more of me and you

We could have taken it slow
Then who knows where we’d be
Mostly lies have been sown
No surprise what’s been reaped
We planted shame and it grows
From our souls like a weed
Thought we could get one for free
Instead it made us feel cheap
Track Name: Finale
Three days ago
I thought I'd found love
Someone to fit my life like a glove
But the doubt must have come
“How could he be the one?”
“Surely enough is enough”
“Best to cut losses and run”
And I could blame naivety
On my trust that technology
Could bridge the gap for me
That 2000 miles and 9 years create
And I’m sorry but this just wasn’t our fate

But how does something that never existed cease to be?
Oh why does everything seem so fleeting?
I wish something was permanent, I want someone to believe

Sharpen your teeth
For tonight we feast
Cause you can butter me up
All you want
But if I think
You'll slice me and serve me
Toss what remains
I promise you, dear, I won't taste as sweat

But how does something that never existed cease to be?
Oh why does everything seem so fleeting?
I wish something was permanent besides feeling empty
I want someone to believe
I want someone to believe
Or maybe just something to believe
Track Name: Dream Girl
Whoever you are
Don't wait too long to come and find me
I wish upon the stars and write all these songs
Just so you'll come find me
No matter how far, I hope to increase the odds
That you'll come searching for me

In my mind is the canvas on which my thoughts paint your
Picture as I imagine you to be
You are the definition of beauty as defined by me
The most amazing dream that I ever could dream

Start packing your bags
Collect all of your maps
You've got so far to go
Across the mountains and the seas
From wherever you are to where I'll be

In my mind is the canvas on which my thoughts paint your
Picture as I imagine you to be
You are the definition of beauty as defined by me
The most amazing dream that I ever could dream

Will you find me? Will you look at all?
Cause I’ve been waiting one too many Falls
This isn’t how the movies told me it would be
The screenwriters looking for someone to tease
Or maybe they’re just as hopeless as me
Better off trapped in their fantasies, writing better dreams

In my mind is the canvas on which my thoughts paint your
Picture as I imagine you to be
You are the definition of beauty as defined by me
The most amazing dream that I ever could dream
Oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-ooh-ooooh
This must be a dream
Track Name: Hopeful Romantic
Whatcha doing over there?
Come sit down by my side
Whatcha doing over there?
I want to have you in my life
Whatcha doing with your hair?
Oh darling, what you’re doing isn’t fair
Please make your way on over here
There’s not a thing you need to fear

You’re looking at me with those eyes,
Those really big eyes that I really like
While I'm turning mine on your lips,
Those soft lips I really want to kiss
And I hope you won’t pass me by
Cause you’re something I don’t want to miss
And if it happens another time
It’s my own ass I’m gonna kick

So are you gonna come to me?
Or do I need to go to you?
I’ll see what it is I need to see
I’ll do what you say I need to do
So I'll stand right up and make my way
Stand right up and make my way to you
And when I open up my mouth, I’ll say
"I don’t know you but you’re beautiful”
"I don’t know you but you’re beautiful”
“And if you came with me, that’d be wonderful"
“So come with me, my beautiful”
Track Name: Panty Dropper
Show me those pearly whites
And let me inside
You'll have to let down your guard
Before I let down mine

Because I've been burned before
And I don't want to feel that pain anymore
So I'll keep you at arms length
And have only myself to blame

Show me those baby blue eyes
There's no more beautiful sight
But they reflect all of my fears
Back into mine

Because I've been burned before
And I don't want to feel that pain anymore
So I'll keep you at arms length
And have only myself to blame

Can I satisfy you
With everything that I do
And for all eternity too?
Because if I can

Then show me those pearly whites
And let me inside

Where I won't be burned again
In the arms a more permanent friend
I'll always keep you within arm's length
And have only myself to blame

When I'm lonely
I’ll have only myself to blame
When I'm lonely
I’ll have only myself
Track Name: Choke
She was born for the lions
So I made my bed for her to lie in
And I can't wait to press my finger to her nose 
Remove all of her clothes 
And hold her close
Put a curl to her toes
She’ll grow weak in passion’s throes
While she feels safe as I choke
With my hand around her throat
As I whisper “all I’ll ever know”

Is that I love her
There’s no other

She lives so, so far away
So here I’ll stay, I’ll pray, I’ll wait for the day
When my love and I meet
And share the space between my sheets
And I’ll kiss the phrase
Inked on her rib cage
Just so she knows that
While it’s something that I hate
I still hope she’ll never change

Because I love her
There’s no other
Track Name: With You
Red hair, white skin, blue eyes
She lights me up like fireworks
On the Fourth of July

I'll be thanking St. Peter
When she unbuttons her blouse 
Cause it's like the gates of heaven
Are being opened to me now
Being opened for me now

When she says my name
It's such a sweet surprise
It brightens up my day
Like a diamond in the sky

I payed the price with all those lonely nights
But when you come home with me,
I still feel like a thief

Unbroken hearts don't bleed,
Don't sting, don’t sing, just beat
So let’s hum along and piece it back together
Together with me

I feel like I’m lost
And you’re all that I’ve got
On these are uncharted seas
You are all that I need
Please crash into me
And capsize, I could die
In those ocean blue eyes
I could drown, be pulled down
But I’d be alright
Ounce for ounce, pound for pound
But I won’t say goodbye
I’ve got no doubt you’ll pull me out
And I’ll be fine
Baby, if you breathe me back to life
I need more time
With you
