Track Name: 1234/Made
well my guy took me for a ride
and we went all over the country side
and on the way he held my hand
and i am so glad that he's my man

well he's not the kind of guy i'd take home to meet my mom and dad
and i'm not saying that he's good but i'm also not saying that he's bad
he just drives me mad
he just drive me mad

'cause i'm 1234 i'm in love
1234 i'm in love
678910 i wanna fall in love all over again

well he's the kind of guy who don't say much
but he's got that way of looking at you, he's got that really sensitive touch
i am so glad that he is mine
i wanna be with him till the end of time

'cause i'm 1234 i'm in love
1234 i'm in love
678910 i wanna fall in love all over again

//////////////////

i am nothing more
than a blood stain on linoleum floors
and i am nothing less
than a broken neck sparrow in a black dress

do you see me now?
do you see me now
that i'm made

i am nothing more
than a barefoot farmer's daughter in a grocery store
and i am nothing less
than a dope nosed scoundrel sent to clean up your mess

do you see me now?
do you see me now
that i'm made

somewhere beneath the sun
is where i found you, you son of a gun
but it takes so long
yeah it takes so long
to pass you buy

i am nothing more
than a four letter word carved on your door
and i am nothing less
than your prized possession in a wedding dress

do you see me now?
do you see me now
that i'm made

////////////////////////////

'cause i'm 1234 i'm in love
1234 i'm in love

Track Name: Kings Road Tunnel
the king's road tunnel is an awfully mean tunnel if you don't know where to step
i've got my two legs tied to the railroad tracks and i'm waiting for my death

i thought that i loved him, i thought that i trusted him, i even gave him my word
but he tossed me off to the river banks all for another girl

oh train conductor, won't you give me a sign, won't you come and do your best
i got my two legs tied to the railroad tracks and i'm waiting for my death

he said that he loved me, he said that he'd marry me, he even gave me his ring
but with the two step glide of the cheater's stride my broken heart it stings

i wanted to hurt him, i wanted to kill him, i wanted to see him dead
but i knew that'd i'd miss him and i probably wanna kiss him, so i'm taking my own life instead

oh train conductor, won't you give me a sign, won't you come and do your best
i got my two legs tied to the railroad tracks and i'm waiting for my death
Track Name: Stay
Darling, do you want me
even though i'm still learning growing
will you take me to the places you go, when you wander late at night

darling, do you love me
even though i'm so far away
distance doesn't listen to whatever the heart beat's saying now

so i take a trip back home to
pick up the pieces lying ''round on the floor
and i'm stupid if not sober to see the note nailed to my door
and if you want to, you don't have to, stay
if you want to, i won't force you to stay

darling, it was so good
when you promised to take things nice and slow
but you didn't
the earth moves faster, than i will ever know

so i'm by myself again
my beds grown cold and there's a busy signal on the phone
and i'm stupid if not useless
to try to control any destiny but my own
and if you want to, you don't have to stay
if you want to, i won't force you to stay

so i'm hoping, that my praying
will finally work out for me
but i'm not placing, any bets yet
until it's you i see
but if you want to, you don't have to stay
but i hope you, well i want you to stay
Track Name: Give Up
i don't want to spoil the party
i just wanna be close to your body now
'cause you feel so safe

and i don't wanna waste my whole life
just to make sure that i got it right
when i'm usually wrong

so i wait my turn and i stumble
and i fall so hard i can't get up
and if this is giving in
yeah if this is giving in
yeah if this is giving in
then i wanna give up

i don't wanna waste my time
chasing after someone who will never be mine
no matter how i try

i don't wanna risk independence
just because love never made sense
at least not to me

so i wait my turn and i stumble
and i fall so hard i can't get up
and if this is giving in
yeah if this is giving in
yeah if this is giving in
then i wanna give up

so i wait my turn and i stumble
and i fall so hard i can't get up
and if this is giving in
yeah if this is giving in
yeah if this is giving in
then i wanna give up

and if this is what it takes
to live without heartbreak
of years of mistakes
then i wanna give up
Track Name: Compass
the coast is feeling lonely tonight
where the tidal waves crash below city lights
and i'm reading your letters again
marked in black ink and scribbled in shorthand

all the words that i say
are always in your memory singing your praise
and i hope maybe someday
you will see me you will see me you will see me
again

but thy will will be fixed
thy will will be twisted
while one remains straight
while the other extends
then to come back together
become one again
my compass will lead you home

kindness isn't easily taught
and a beacon of light is something i'm not
but i hold you in this regard
a love so ethereal brighter than the stars

and lover don't you cry
cause you know that someday we will be joined in the skies
and i hope may you'll say
you will see me you will see me you will see me
again

but thy will will be fixed
thy will will be twisted
while one remains straight
while the other extends
then to come back together
become one again
my compass will lead you home

and never shall we touch
for the thought of another within me's too much
and never shall we say
love is fading, love is fading, love is fading
away

but thy will will be fixed
thy will will be twisted
while one remains straight
while the other extends
then to come back together
become one again
my compass will lead you home
Track Name: From the Crowd
Something I never say, because it passes me by in the most peculiar of ways
Everyday there’s a brand new chance that I’m too scared to take

First step’s the hardest but the second foot follows and I’m feeling so steady on unstable ground
But! It’s my choice to make my voice heard so you can finally pick me from the crowd

I’m the kind of girl who’s too shy to speak her views of the world
Tongue tied in a constant state of panic is the life I lead so carefully so not to over step the boundaries
But! It’s my choice to make my voice heard so you can finally pick me from the crowd

All I need is some air to breath and some coffee to make me feel alright
But! It’s my choice to make my voice heard so you can finally pick me from the crowd

First step’s the hardest but the second foot follows and I’m feeling so steady on unstable ground
But! It’s my choice to make my voice heard so you can finally pick me from the crowd
Track Name: Bored of Love
I never said I was your girlfriend. I just kept on playing along
And I never said that I loved you even though you swore I was wrong
And if you leave, you know, that I won’t be following you
Cause I’m all I can handle right now

And I’ve tried love once or twice before
And it’s always left me face down on the floor
And I’m not gonna do it anymore
No I’m not gonna do it anymore

Cause I’m bored of love
Cause I’m bored of love
Bored of love

I never meant to get so deep
I never meant to fall asleep
With you under my sheets
No I never meant to fall asleep

And I’ve been in love once or twice before
And it’s always left me running for the door
And I don’t want to do it anymore
No I don’t wanna do it anymore

Cause I’m bored of love
Cause I’m bored of love
Bored of love

And I’m sick and tired of going on dinner dates
And I’m sick and tired of having to wait
Of anticipation and hopes beginning to fade
Of a life that is surely a mistake

Cause I’m bored of love
Cause I’m bored of love
Bored of love
