Track Name: Away From Me
I wish I'd been more unaware
I could see the guilt on his lips
Telling me what had become of this
And I know there was something to say
What's the use of holding it back
When there's nothing left to be asked
We had a deal to mend
Through away all the time for a moment that's mine
I'm not sorry
He'll love me when he changes his mind
Now there's nothing left in my heart,
No feelings I can impart
Cause I've been torn apart and blue
Go back to what you do
Stay away from me, stay away from me
Torn apart and blue, go back to what you do
Stay away from me, stay away from me
No, don't say it's okay
I can see it's all in my face,
This feeling's not going away
And I know there's some comfort in words
Try to give me a place in your arms
But I can't feel what everyone wants
Track Name: Winter
I fell in deep
But you were striding on the shallows of the sea
Oh my sentiment
It's just a part of me that wants to pretend
I know who you are
There's no use with you when everything's not right
So what's the surprise?
You'll just hit me with words, then you'll sell me to the night
You'll just
Take what you want and then you'll let me go
Take what you want and then you'll let me go
Take what you want and then you'll let me go
Cause that's what I deserve
I know I couldn't win
But I was trying for understanding
So goodbye again
You killed me once and now you're burying what's been
Track Name: This Old Pain
There was once a place with no hope or mercy
On the infamous side of town
Where the poets dreamed and the sirens whispered
And the sun stayed in after dawn
You had left without a right or reason
What you couldn't say wouldn't do
Troubled minds and all the troubled pieces
That go on and on back to you

And I wonder where was I before
And I feel I can't take anymore
Ooh all of this old pain
Why does it all feel the same?
Oooh all of this old pain
I couldn't know us better now

Come with me I'd like to be your compass
Lead you through the night, escape the day
Meet me there with that old time fever
Not a care to give or take away
Track Name: Ways
You chose the words but I knew you would stay here
You leave, you go but still you'll always wait there
A troubled soul and more than words could hold you
I'm sorry if this time I'm not the one to be free
Could you say that it was all enough
I broke, I left and I told everyone
Was it happenstance now that it's done
You won't return each time until I'm gone
For what it's worth, I'm so afraid
For what it's worth, I could stay but I know
There is no way, There is no way
All lovers say they'd walk a thousand miles
But I can really say that I did try it
But you're so far away, I'm tired
And I don't see no other way so why?
For what it's worth, I'm so afraid
For what it's worth, I could stay but I know
There is no way
Any heart and every word could hold you
But I still know that most of all you'd want to
Be free
Track Name: Why Don't You Tell Me Why?
I gave you all but not for nothing
And in your eyes there was still something
What I wanted was now over for a while and no one tried
You're gonna hurt now for a long time
And all the guilty thoughts won't be mine
You're gonna carry on your shoulders
All your life what was mine
And so, why don't you tell me why
So why don't you tell me why,
So why don't you tell me why?
