    Save Yourself

    Tangled feet, cotton sheets, to hell with sleep/I'm dyin' to wake you up/Me 'n you, you 'n me/Baby we can't get close enough

    Just takes my lips on your skin/You start to smile, I breathe you in

    (Chorus)
    Oh stay in my eyes
    You're killin' me good
    Baby you've ruined me for anyone else
    Whisper me slow, kiss me too deep
    It's too late for me
    Save yourself

    Get up slow, it's hard to go/ We both know that world's right outside/Coffee strong, shower's on/C'mon baby the water's fine

    You draw some hearts on the glass/Reach for a towel, I pull you back

    (Chorus)
    Oh stay in my eyes
    You're killin' me good
    Baby you've ruined me for anyone else
    Whisper me slow, kiss me too deep
    It's too late for me
    Save yourself

    I'm done, I'm gone, I'm history/Look what your love's gone and done to me

    (Chorus)
    Oh stay in my eyes
    You're killin' me good
    Baby you've ruined me for anyone else
    Whisper me slow, kiss me too deep
    It's too late for me
    Save yourself

    Trainwreck

    Tangled feet, cotton sheets, to hell with sleep/I'm dyin' to wake you up/Me 'n you, you 'n me/Baby we can't get close enough

    Just takes my lips on your skin/You start to smile, I breathe you in

    (Chorus)
    Oh stay in my eyes
    You're killin' me good
    Baby you've ruined me for anyone else
    Whisper me slow, kiss me too deep
    It's too late for me
    Save yourself

    Get up slow, it's hard to go/ We both know that world's right outside/Coffee strong, shower's on/C'mon baby the water's fine

    You draw some hearts on the glass/Reach for a towel, I pull you back

    (Chorus)
    Oh stay in my eyes
    You're killin' me good
    Baby you've ruined me for anyone else
    Whisper me slow, kiss me too deep
    It's too late for me
    Save yourself

    I'm done, I'm gone, I'm history/Look what your love's gone and done to me

    (Chorus)
    Oh stay in my eyes
    You're killin' me good
    Baby you've ruined me for anyone else
    Whisper me slow, kiss me too deep
    It's too late for me
    Save yourself

    Good For Me

    Never would have struck this match/Never would have started back/This cigarette would be my last/If I knew what was good for me

    Never would have bought this drink/Never would have gone beyond the brink/I'd have told 'em to throw the damned thing down the sink/If I knew what was good for me

    But I learn things the hard way/Time and time again

    Never would have said hello/Never would have danced so slow/I'd have settled my tab and headed home/If I knew what was good for me

    But I learn things the hard way/Time and time and time and time again and time and time again

    No, I never would have said that first hello/Never would have gave my heart and soul/Lord know I'd learn to let you go/If I knew what was good for me

    Teach Me to Forgive

    I don't wanna live like this
    A victim of this pain
    All because you used me 
    To play your heartless games

    I just can't go on 
    Hiding from the truth
    You still have the power 
    And I don't know what to do

    I'm tired, so tired of being sad
    I want my life back

    God, if you're listening
    Teach me to forgive
    I'm down on my knees
    'Cause this ain't no way to live
    God, if you're listening
    Teach me to forgive

    It's hard to have faith
    But I'm ready to believe
    Release me from my fears
    Set me free

    I'm tired, so tired of being sad
    I want my life back

    God, if you're listening
    Teach me to forgive
    I'm down on my knees
    'Cause this ain't no way to live
    God, if you're listening
    Teach me to forgive

    Amen

    Up Here

    I know who shot Kennedy/
    Stonehenge ain't no mystery to me/And the Mona Lisa herself/Told me why she smiled

    You won't believe all the things that I see

    As I walk on the stars, sleep in the clouds/I hear you at night, when you cry out loud/
    Here, there's no pain, there's no fear/
    But I can see my house from up here

    I saw our Amy's class play/
    Hard to believe she's already eight/And you wished I could be there/But how would you know that I was

    'Cause I left this world so suddenly/With so many people depending on me/I only wish that there'd been more time for goodbye/I couldn't speak but I tried

    Now I walk on the stars, sleep in the clouds/I hear you at night, when you cry out loud/Here, there's no pain, there's no fear/But I can see my house from up here

    If a streetlamp burns out as you pass underneath/Or you swear someone's there so you turn round to see/Or the radio's on and they keep playin' our song/And you fall back through time's open door/
    That's me tryin' to touch you once more

    Now I walk on the stars, sleep in the clouds/Move on with your life, go make me proud/Here, I'm away but I'm always near/'Cause I can see my house...from up here
