Track Name: Before The Fall
Last night, things got kind of crazy
I think you... well it's kind of hazy
My hands smell like cigarettes
And this bed kind of looks like sex
Oh, I know it didn't happen, but it could
It could be the reason why you said, goodbye, goodbye

Need I remind you that this wasn't my decision?
This is all your fault
Last time I checked, you didn't have a reason
To go and blame me after all
Can we go back
Before the fall

For two months, I let you linger
It's my turn to point the finger
Closed-lipped and open-armed
I saved face just to save my charm
And I learned to turn the other cheek
I turned until I realized you'd say goodbye, goodbye

Need I remind you that this wasn't my decision?
This is all your fault
Last time I checked you know you didn't have a reason
To go and blame me after all
Can we go back
Can we go back
Before the fall

A part of me, the heart of me, wants to start again
So can we try, make it right, what could have been
But then I know it would, but then I know it would happen again
So goodbye, goodbye

Need I remind you that this wasn't my decision?
This is all your fault
Last time I checked you know you didn't have a reason
To go and blame me after all
Can we go back
Can we go back
Before the fall
Track Name: Sabotage
I’d like to say I hate the way you keep me up at night,
But I love to hear you kiss behind my ear and greet the morning light
It’s just a game, I say, we’re kids playing with fire,
But it just burns and turns to shreds our friendliest desires

You know this is
Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
What we’re doing is
Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
That we're sabotaging us.

I’d like to say it wasn’t me who took it all too far, but I
Crossed my own defensive line when I gave my eager heart
And I’ve learned that fire turns to ash and colors fade to gray,
And conversations always end with one thing left to say
You know this is

Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
What we’re doing is
Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
That we're sabotaging us

There’s a thunder in my chest, nervous static in my veins
Give my heart and head a rest, out of control, I’m pulling back the reigns
Need a way to get back to me, get back to living easy,
To get away from, to get away from

Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
What we’re doing is
Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
That we're sabotaging us, sabotaging us

Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
What we’re doing is
Sabotage, sabotage, oh oh
Sabotage, sabotage, you know
That we're sabotaging us
Track Name: I Can't Have You
Three friends and Gentleman Jack kept me sane
Till you showed up hours late with a smirk across your face
So you think I got a little crazy with the words I tried to say
Well, I’ve got news for you, you’ve driven me this way
And I know I should be the one to decide, this will be the last time
But the truth is, I’ll just wait and keep the bottles dry
I’m just worn and way too tired to be something you want me to be
And I need to let my heart, lie with the rest of me

I can’t have you spoil my dreams,
I can’t have you waking my sleep, and I know
You’re only wasted time for me
I can’t have you causing my sins,
I can’t have you under my skin, when you don’t
Even have the nerve to be
But it’s true, what it all comes down to, is I can’t have you

So for now, I’ll just rest my head in a city that never sleeps
And instead of clinging to you, I’ll grip to my sheets
No, I’m not too proud to sleep alone, I’m just fearful of waking that way,
So I guess it’s time I found, somebody who will stay

I can’t have you spoil my dreams,
I can’t have you waking my sleep, and I know
You’re only wasted time for me
I can’t have you causing my sins,
I can’t have you under my skin, when you don’t
Even have the nerve to be
But it’s true, what it all comes down to, is I can’t have you

I’ve tossed and turned on this for weeks
What I know, my heart just won’t believe
I’m sick of feeling like I’ve got someone to please
Cause you’re not worth it, you’re not worth it

I can’t have you spoil my dreams,
I can’t have you waking my sleep, and I know
You’re only wasted time for me
I can’t have you causing my sins,
I can’t have you under my skin, when you don’t
Even have the nerve to be
But it’s true, what it all comes down to, is I can’t have you
Track Name: Song From 22
From beachside sunrises,
Plane-filled skies and coffee highs,
It’s unrealistic from the start
Cause I know what it’s like to be
In the shoes on your feet, and in time I hope you’ll see the other side

Where no one wins at the end of the day
And there’s stupid rules in a stupid game
It’s your turn to learn to answer to yourself,
But you should know,

21’s for making mistakes
For breaking hearts, 21's forgetting names
And I know you’re gonna do what you want to do
Just remember this song from 22

If someone told me a year ago
My choice would back to haunt me
I’d still do it the same
And here you are to deliver the news
That karma’s answering me
And I’m a victim of my ways

Cause no one wins at the end of the day
When there’s stupid rules in a stupid game
It’s your turn to learn to answer to yourself,
But you should know

21’s for making mistakes
For breaking hearts, 21's forgetting names
And I know you’re gonna do what you want to do
Just remember this song from 22

I’ll give it time, it’s sure to pass
I know this phase, it never lasts

Cause 21’s for making mistakes
For breaking hearts, 21's forgetting names
And I know you’re gonna do what you want to do
Cause 21’s for making mistakes
For breaking hearts, 21's forgetting names
And I know you’re gonna do what you want to do
Just remember this song
Track Name: Baby Steps
In a room full of people, I find him
And my butterflies collide
But exchanging half-drunk glances
Never leads to something right
But the boy with the stormy eyes walks my way to flirt
So I put on my two-faced smile and my heart on high alert

This isn’t the first time I’ve met a boy like you
I’ve seen this charade
I’m tired and I’m broken, this isn’t something new,
But I’m not afraid
I usually run before I know which way to go
And yes I've had my fun, oh but I'm tired of being alone
I think it’s probably best, that I take baby steps this time

The party is ending and we could
Go and fall asleep with the sky
But I’ve built up these walls and angry fences
To keep away these nights

This isn’t the first time I’ve met a boy like you
I’ve seen this charade
I’m tired and I’m broken, this isn’t something new,
But I’m not afraid
I usually run before I know which way to go
And yes I've had my fun, oh but I'm tired of being alone
I think it’s probably best, that I take baby steps this time

I’ve got to guard it with my life,
This heart I’ve given more than twice
And only time will tell
If I can trust this time

I usually run before I know which way to go
And yes I've had my fun, oh but I'm tired of being alone
I think it’s probably best, that I take baby steps this time
