Track Name: Don't Let Me Go
If you believe that you're the only one whose ever been kicked into the dirt before
I'll tell you this, it wouldn't mean nothing to compare our greatest hits

Now I'm coming around
and you got me. You're calling me out again

If you believe in second chances
Don't you go and walk out the door
If you do, we may live to regret this
If we don't try then we will never know
Don't let me go

Other boys have been mean with little regard
It's almost like they don't have hearts of their own
We all have things we rather not share
They start to isolate you when you pretend that they're not there

Now I'm coming around
and you got me. You're calling me out again

I am sure to fall to pieces, to go to pieces if you go
Only you can release me, can release me tonight

Honey it's time to let down your hair
I ain't going to hurt you none, I'm going to treat you fair
Now is not the time to move in fear
Anything worth doing or knowing comes by putting yourself in the wind
Track Name: Hourglass
You blow me kisses
I wait for them
I’m bound to your floor
With open mouth

You tell me secrets
I listen close
But what’s true and what’s myth
There’s no way to ever know

I am rising
And here I am
My eyes are upward
And waiting for spring

You’ve got your version
And you’ll get your way
While you decide
I lie in patient wait

Love tell me something
Do you see
Any room for us
In your hourglass

Now I am rising
And here I stand
My eyes are upward
And waiting for spring

I am ready
Just give me the word
Send up a signal
We’ll cut clean and run
We’ll cut clean and run

You blow me kisses
I wait for them
I’m bound to your floor
With open mouth

Love tell me something
Do you see
Any room for us
In your hourglass
Track Name: One I Want
If I had a chance, I’d have given you up long ago
But you’ve stuck in my ribs, with your vice of a grip and won’t let go

You make your mark with ease
It looks just like it was care-free

I don’t know what is worse
I find when you’re around I can’t breathe
But when you go away, all rational thought takes a back seat

I can’t seem to get my mind clear
If If find some reprieve, I could jostle you free, and won’t need to admit

You’re the one I want
Just why I don’t understand
When you’re in control
You keep me on my toes
There’s so much I’m learning

You’re the one I want
It’s like I never had a choice
If I had a say, I’d have wished you away
As it is, I’m at your door

I guess that’s why I’m here
Because nobody else has even come close to making me feel

You’re the one I want
That confidence is just fear
Though I give and you take
You’re just as liable to break
And I know that you’re just as scared

You’re the one that I want
I’m beginning to understand
That as hard as we plan, it makes no difference
When love demands

You’re the one I want
And you can have the same
With you I see hope in not needing to know
And not needing to play it safe
