Track Name: Marina del Rey
I wanna make it go away
I want you not to be afraid
and if the walls come crashing down
I’ll be the one who sticks around, dear

I can be the one who's strong
or I can be the one who follows along
and when the walls come crashing down
I’ll be the one who sticks around, dear

let me love you all the way
from New York City
to Marina del Rey
I wanna feel what it's like
to love you my entire life
ohh ohh

loving you is like a dance
you lift me up, swing me around with one glance
I will return your love in full
you be my push, I’ll be your pull, dear

ohh ohh
ohh ohh
and when the walls come crashing down
I’ll be the one who sticks around..

let me love you all the way
from New York City
to Marina del Rey
I wanna feel what it's like
to love you my entire life
ohh ohh
Track Name: I Wanna Be
I wanna be free wanna fly wanna fly wanna fly on my own
I wanna set fire to this life find a dream find a dream of my ownI
Wipe my eyes dry, it’s time to go
There’s more to this life,
That I know

If I leave on a whim on a whim in the middle of night
Just go with my gut let moon and the stars guide me
Will come like a shock like a shock like a shock to my heart
Or will it creep from behind from behind and slowly start to ignite

Don't wanna be tied to the truth or the lies that follow me home
they pile and pile on top of me I'm in a choke hold
if I stay, if I stay, if I stay then I'll never know
How to love how to love how to love
cause I'll never let go of the unknown

I don't wanna be afraid of falling cause I know
Cause I know we have to fall
and I don't wanna spend my days forever
with the thought, I never listened to my heart
I never had a fresh start

Maybe there's something that I gotta learn
that cannot be taught
or maybe I'm chasing a dream that's already been caught
keep tomorrow at bay, I wanna live now
I wanna believe in me somehow

I wanna be free wanna fly wanna fly wanna fly on my own
I wanna set fire to this life find a dream find a dream of my ownI
Wipe my eyes dry, it’s time to go
There’s more to this life,
That I know
Track Name: Thorough
I won't let you go
To ponder the peculiar
where darkness takes Its toll
And dreams are bare and something unfamiliar

if I could stop the rain
from pounding on your shoulders
ease your tired mind
of the empty promises
That robbed you blind

what time we have left
Is time that’s borrowed
We never had a say in our tomorrow
And no one's gonna stop you now
If you wanna go then take your bow
But be thorough

And I won't let you know
I've tasted such a poison
you have every right to go
But it’s the weak of heart that feel they have been chosen

Stop hiding in the shadows
There’s nothing there to mask the sorrow
You’ll never find the answers that you need
If you, please don’t go

Cause what time we have left
Is time that’s borrowed
We never had a say in our tomorrow
And no one's gonna stop you now
If you wanna go then take your bow
But be thorough
And no one's gonna stop you now
If you wanna go then take your bow
But be thorough
Track Name: Blue Bird
I knew something wasn’t right
Thought it was just another fight
Was it something that i said
For you to end up in someone else’s bed that night

I believed that you were kind
No one could ever change my mind
I tuned out the whispering
but it got loud enough to swallow up your alibi
and now

I heard you’ve been sad and blue bird
singing out of tune oh beggin’ for a redo, a redo
and I know if I let my guard down I'll be waiting around
for you to come on home, back to me

watch the tables as they turn
it took some dirty work for you to learn
if you always want what you can't have
you’ll never see what’s in front of you, you fool

Cause I heard you’ve been sad and blue bird
singing out of tune oh beggin’ for a redo, a redo
and I know if I let my guard down I'll be waiting around
for you to come on home, back to me

Back to me
you should have never
broke my heart
a foolish endeavor
how can i
make believe it’s all okay
you should have stayed

Cause I heard you’ve been sad and blue bird
singing out of tune oh beggin’ for a redo, a redo
and I know if I let my guard down I'll be waiting around
for you to come on home
back to me
Track Name: High Five
I can tell that you really don’t wanna be
I can tell that you really don’t wanna be
I can tell that you really don’t wanna be with me

I can tell by the way that you comb your hair
I can tell by the clothes that you choose to wear
I can tell that you really just don’t care

Chorus
so why, why, why
do we have to be so polite
if we don’t gotta to be
let’s just cut our ties
no need for goodbye
but we could high five

Now we can be who ever we wanna be
and we can do whatever we wanna do
and what I want to do never see you again

I never meant to be with you
it just sort of happened one night
then I could never get rid of you
consider this our last high five
Track Name: Next Best Thing
You make my knees go weak
and I can't get no sleep
waiting for the next best thing

One look at you
right there I knew
this was gonna sting
can we make it
or will we break it
waiting for the phone to ring

when we met
I made a bet
That chivalry is dead
Not only did you prove me wrong
You keep it up all day long

Waiting for the next best thing
Waiting for the phone to ring
And if we go our separate ways
Maybe we can still be friends

if we break
let’s not mistake
why it had to end
we’ll go on our separate ways
and maybe we can still be friends

You make my knees go weak
Now I can get some sleep
Knowing you're the next best thing
Track Name: I Do
I live like I'll never close my eyes
When I love it blazes like a fire
and when I have no strength in my bones
there’s a hero inside me that knows

I break a piece of us each day
if we stay afloat we’ll be okay
but we’re scattered all over this place
only standing here under your grace

Don't wanna be the reason
we never get to see how happy ends
you think I don't wanna fix it
but baby I do, I do


My heart is kind and unashamed
but I'm not as young as yesterday
so when you need me to explain
please forgive me when I lose my way

Can I get out of my way
and show you ill make it better
the battle can be won
if we can stick together
cause baby I do
I do
Track Name: Making it Up
Today is not like the rest, the stakes have been raised
Decisions put to the test, and my demons have all been claimed
Now I'm here to confess, my inner dismay
If it weren't for you then I never could say
I knew there was a wrong way

And I could have fallen and never have met you
and when you're heart is aching, I'm making it up to you

Forgive, forget and move on, there's more to be done
You've lit a fire in my heart and my story has yet to start
I'll go wherever you go, I'm taking a stance
our love will learn to be bold and be given a fighting chance

Cause I could have fallen and never have met you
and when you're heart is aching, I'm making it up to you

You know that I got it bad
You know that I got it bad
And if you don't know, you should know I got it bad
And if you don't know..
I got it bad, and I'm never ever gonna take it back

Cause I could have fallen and never have met you
and when you're heart is aching, I'm making it up to you
Track Name: The Blame
I wasn’t ready for you
but you crawled under my skin
our days turned into weeks
your truth was colored in
and it seems, you got me feeling like a girl that’s got a problem

I’m taking the blame
cause I don’t wanna change for anyone
who’s gonna look after me when we’re done
I’m taking the blame
cause you’re not gonna play me
look at the mess you’ve made
loving you used to be fun

you like to talk about me
like I’m not in the room
careful not to rock this boat
cause you think that I can’t handle the truth
and it’s clear, you got me feeling like a girl that’s got a problem

I’m taking the blame
cause I don’t wanna change for anyone
who’s gonna look after me when we’re done
I’m taking the blame
if you’re not gonna claim it
look at the mess you’ve made
loving you used to be fun

my one-way ticket out of here
my simple way to clear the air
the only road that leads far away from you

so I’m taking the blame
Ohh..mmm..

I’m taking the blame
cause I don’t wanna change for anyone
who’s gonna look after me when we’re done
I’m taking the blame
if you’re not gonna claim it
look at the mess you’ve made
loving you used to be fun
Track Name: Back Together
I am grateful for your love
and i know why you must protect me
I see through the tears and into the light

Always heading towards the storm
leaving not a trace behind me
another sleepless night is coming for you

I bound to break
I’ve made mistakes
I wanted to be better
and you pull me
back together

Shadows filling up my sky
Trying hard to keep my eyes dry
Changing winds don’t seem to blow here no more

Maybe I don’t have it in me
and you’re afraid to make the call
every chance we take we risk it all

I bound to break
I’ve made mistakes
I wanted to be better
and you pull me
back together

And you can’t take it when I break it
we always hit the wall
if it’s so easy why can’t I be
everything you want

I bound to break
I’ve made mistakes
I wanted to be better
and you pull me
back together
