Track Name: Discerning
Today I'm going to keep a little something for me
Today I'm going to keep a little something for me
A healthy distance, resist the urge to say everything at once.

It's not personal, it's survival.

Cause love keeps leaving my body and I don't know where
How much love can leave my body til, oh, there's nothing there

Today I'm going to keep a little something for me
Today I'm going to keep a little something for me
Curb the habit, monitor the need for another's heat

It's not personal, it's survival.

Cause love keeps leaving my body and I don't know where
How much love can leave my body til, oh, there's nothing there

I've got to hide my heart away, til it learns
I've got to hide my heart away, til it discerns.
Track Name: 1:1
If you want me I am here
I am holding my ground

I am not 20 anymore

But if you call I'll answer
If only to say
I can do better

I build an immunity
Everytime you push me

Train myself not to jump
Keep the ratio one for one

Cause I am not 20 anymore

But if you call I'll answer
If only to say
I can do better

Or maybe I can't (I'm not 20 anymore)
This is as good as it gets (I'm not 20 anymore)

So if you call I'll answer
Track Name: I Want You
I don't want to be good
I don't care about what I value
I want you

I don't care about love
I don't care about the future
I want you

Hearts are breaking
Ships are sinking
But no matter what I tell my heart is true
I want you

I'd burn my house
Let the fire in my body out
I want you

I'd surrender joy
Let my whole world turn to blue
Til I have you

Hearts are breaking
Ships are sinking
But no matter what I tell my heart is true
I want you

I've clearly lost my mind
But I don't want it back
I want you

Track Name: A Grand Gesture
I might be old fashioned
But it's gotta be
It's nothing, if it's isn't
Something -

I might be old fashioned
But it's got to feel
It's nothing, if it isn't
Something grand

I am looking for A Grand Gesture to give you
I am looking for the right moves to win you over

I might be barking up the wrong tree
But it's feeling like your feeling
Me

And in our crystal ball there might not be
A future, but A Grand Gesture will ensure a memory

I am looking for A Grand Gesture to give you
I am looking for the right moves to win you over

It will make up for the trips we never take
It will make up for the words we don't say
It will make up for the trips we never take
It will make up for the promises that we break.
Track Name: Worst Of Me
So what if you see the Worst Of Me?
I'm not the robot I aspire to be
So what if you see the Worst Of Me?
I've lost you already -

It's not a weakness to think of you
How can I resist when I miss you
It's not a weakness to think of you
It's the action that follows, the calling when you say please don't

If I really loved you I'd set you free
My love is superseded by my need
So what if you see the Worst Of Me?
I've lost you already -

It's not a weakness to think of you
How can I resist when you're the best
It's not a weakness to think of you
It's the action that follows, the staying when you say please go

My friends tell me this emotion is human

It's not a weakness to think of you
How can I resist when I miss you
It's not a weakness to think of you
It's the action that follows, the holding on when you say let go

Baby meet the Worst Of Me.
Track Name: Crisis
Maybe I'm gonna be alright
Maybe I don't need to try so hard
And all those seconds, second guessing, is a waste of time

When all I have to do all I have to do is let love in

What's wrong with me? Nothing.

My heart just wants to want
Cause no keeps it going and charged
And all those choices, chasing crushes, is a way to hide

When all I have to do all I have to do is let love in

What's wrong with me? Nothing.

Sometimes it doesn't feel like how I want it to
So I invent a crisis and make my fears true
But when I stop fighting, I see what's in front of me

All I have to do all I have to do is let love in

What's wrong with me? Nothing.
