Track Name: Cowards In Love
you live in a world where the boy always gets the girl
except the one who lights his sky
cause the girl is too full of beware, she's too scared to share.
Avoiding a void a few others left behind.

I live in headspace where peanut butter rhymes with grace.
I wish you'd place your hands on my thigh.
Tho I try to wise and at times cut you down to size.
Your laughing eyes make me so damn high.
But you're a coward in love.

I know you're scared of me, too.
The things that I do can make you quiet and shy.
So we're at a standstill, chasing windmills to keep from looking each other in the eye.
Because we're cowards in love.

Somebody give me a shove!

I know you're scared of me, too.
The things that I do can make you tongue-tied.
We'll go for easy kill, drinking our fill until we teach each other to fly.
But I'm already too high on your laughing eyes.
Babe, you're such a prize but still you're just a coward in love and I'm a coward in love.
What a pair.
Track Name: Waste Of Time
You catch a butterfly in my hair
Lift it high into the air
Then you say "Just like me, he needs to be free."
But, baby that's so unfair

You call me up to say hello
And I wait to hear the words "I love you so"
Cause I know it's for real
But sometimes I feel
The only word you know is "No".

And they say: It's just a waste of time.
And they say: It's nothing but a waste of time.
But I know I can't throw it away, can't throw it away.

Now I'm sleepwalking on the moon
And you fly up to me in a space cocoon
And you say "Okay, you get your way."
But then I wake up too soon, at noon.

And they say: It's just a waste of time.
And they say: It's nothing but a waste of time.
But I know I can't throw it away, can't throw it away.

And I see the beauty of what could be
In another time, in another universe
I don't know what's worse than being near yet far from a love like ours.
And I say, it isn't okay. But for now, it's the price I'm willing to pay.

It must be in the way you bark
You're not the kinda boy to catch my spark and then let it go so let's let it grow and light up this oh-so-dark

And they'll say: It's not a waste of time.
And they'll say: It's never been a waste of time.
Cause I know I can't throw it away, can't throw it away.
Track Name: No More Words
I see the curtain billow by the bleeding past
That never seemed to last too long
You wonder what I'm doing all in your easy chair
You don't know where I am

No more words
No more parades
That never meant that anything was fine anyway
No more words, please
but you'd rather listen to my lies than to the reasons why we're not in love.

I know you're thinking behind those glasses, dear
Waiting for your next move to disappear.
You wonder what's the message tattooed on your skull in front of everyone and God.

No more words
No more excuses
For every little thing you never did to save my life
No more words, please
But you'd rather listen to my lies than to the reasons why we're not in love.

No more words
No more reminders of a better time when you were mine and everything was fine
No more words, please
but you'd rather listen to my lies than to the reasons why, I tell you why everything you never did was everything i needed but you never wanna look it in the eye to save your life cause it wasn't love.
It wasn't love.
Track Name: Love's Been A Shadow (Spanish Song)
You say a prayer to me across the void of our bed
The darkness speaks to me through all the lies in my head
Above the roaring sea of the all the things I'd read
You wonder if I hear you at all.

A moonsong plays tonight darkly whispering my fears
And drowning out your sight in clouds of unwanted tears.
My kaleidoscope sight blinds me to the years when I felt so lost without you.

And I don't know why
And I don't know how
I'm still in love with you even now
But when love's been a shadow my whole life through
Is it really so surprising I never talk with you.

I feel you search for me through the book of my life.
I know you care for me, you want me as your wife
But what you'll never see is that your love is a knife
And I've already tasted that pain.

And I don't know why
And I don't know how
I'm still in love with you even now
But when love's been a shadow my whole life through
Is it really so surprising I never talk with you.

You say a prayer to me and then you turn off the light and reach your hand to me and through the walls of the night I felt you touching me and I knew that this might, this might not be a shadow after all.
Track Name: War Games
I heard the news today while I played my guitar.
We lit the fuse today.
Pandora's box, making me think too hard.

I don't wanna play these war games anymore.
Please make them stop and put the board away.
Then pass the wine and say we're going to be okay.

If you love me, just make me laugh until I cry.
I'll be fine in the morning, but baby baby please just hold me now.

I don't wanna play these war games anymore.
Please make them stop and put the board away.
Then pass the wine and say we're going to be okay.
