Track Name: Maybe, Baby
Yes I have heard the news
But you're not the only one who has the blues
I think that it's been going around

And I told you it would go that way
But I never could make you stay
If I could I know I'd be holding you now

But you chose him
And he took you for a ride
It didn't last
But I know you thought it might
It's been a couple hundred days now
And a couple thousand miles
But maybe, baby
In another life

Well I guess I could hold you now
If you ever make it back to town
But somehow I think the feeling won't be there

And I told you I would stay the same
If you ever came back someday
But those were just some lies that we shared

(CHORUS)

Well everytime I fall in love something in me dies
Cause I can never seem to hold on
But now I find myself rolling in with the tide
Seems like it's been a lifetime
Since I've looked into your eyes

(CHORUS)

But maybe, baby...
Track Name: I Can Talk to You
It's funny how people know to stay away from me
And it's funny how people can be so cruel
It's funny how people love to run away from me
And it's funny how you stick around

I've got a million things to say and I know that it don't seem that way
Cause when I talk I stutter and I mumble too
Yes I mess up every word I try to say
It's funny how I can talk to you

It's funny how no matter how hard I try to try
I always fall flat on my face
But no matter how big the scars and bruises on my cheek
A kiss from you just makes them go away

I've got a million things to say and I know that it don't seem that way
Cause when I talk I stutter and I mumble too
Yes I mess up every word I try to say
It's funny how I can talk to you
It's funny how I can talk to you

I've got a million things to say and I know that it don't seem that way
Cause when I talk I stutter and I mumble too
Yes I mess up every word I try to say
It's funny how I can talk to you
It's funny how I can talk to you
It's funny how I can talk to you
Track Name: Roll Water Roll
I haven't heard a single word you've said
I am drowning in an ocean inside of my head
Waves are throwing me against the rocks
I hear you calling but I can't pick up

So roll water roll
Give me your best show
Roll water roll
I'll learn to swim before I let you take control

So many worries always on my mind
You're my escape but I can't escape this time
Waves are throwing me against the rocks
Your hand is reaching but you can't pull me up

So roll water roll
Give me your best show
Roll water roll
I'll learn to swim before I let you take control

This time I'm on my own
This time I'm on my own
So roll water roll
I'll learn to swim before I let you take control
Track Name: Line in a Song
Well, I know that you're hurting
Things are going wrong
I can hear it in the words you sing
And your voice, your voice, your voice so soft

But these days, they will not swallow you
Like you'd like to believe
They will linger for a moment
And then be gone, gone with the breeze

Oh, I know that someday
All of this pain
Will be just a line in a song
That you never sing

Well, sometimes people leave you
Yeah, sometimes people stray
And right now it seems that everyone
Just goes, just goes away

But these days, they do not define you
No they're not who you are
They will linger for a moment
But will soon be just a faded scar

Oh, I know that someday
All of this pain
Will be just a line in a song
That you never sing

Just a line
Just a memory
Just a line
Just a memory

Oh, I know that someday
All of this pain
Will be just a line in a song
That you never sing
Track Name: People Like Me
When the nighttime rolls around
People meet their lovers
Under covers warm

And I'm alone at the end of the night
Thinking about somebody I used to know
I don't wanna go home

So where do people like me go?
Where do people like me go?

I don't care for these empty streets
But I don't want an empty bed
Thoughts rattling in my head

I feel like a stranger now
I want more but I don't know how
And I don't wanna go home

So where do people like me go?
Where do people like me go?

And these empty bars
They don't ease my mind
It's so hard to find
A heart that beats in time
With mine

So where do people like me go?
Where do people like me go?

When the nighttime rolls around
People meet their lovers
Under covers warm
