Track Name: Reflections
Never gonna get what I got comin'
never gonna get what I deserve
'cause I move out of the way when I'm the target,
move out of the way for someone else

I've given all I can, it's not enough
given all I can, but no I haven't
'cause when all is said and done I've had my chance
all is said and done I've let it go

I've seen a lot of things that no one hasn't
seen a lot of things with both eyes closed
but if you haven't been around to see it with me,
there ain't nothin' much that I can do
no there ain't nothin' much that I can do

When I saw the light,
you said that nothin' was wrong
I wanted, I wanted it to be the end
But now, I just got my reflection again

I said too many words that I don't mean
said too many words that you heard wrong
but if you ever come around to just forgive me,
maybe we can start to make things right

I'm livin' in a world that don't even see me,
livin' in a world that don't slow down
so if there's something on your mind, I got a minute
ain't nobody else I'd rather see
I said there ain't nobody else I'd rather see

And you, I gave you all of my trust
I cursed, I kicked, I screamed,
I fought everything in my heart
if only, if only you would be my friend
instead, it's just my damn reflection again
Track Name: If You Wanna Stay
Spittin' black and spun around
don't even know which way is up anymore
Do I need familiar arms,
or the heat of a makeshift love
I hear a softly beating heart
for me

Given' up and givin' out
Such a low as this I never have felt
With a sorry little sigh,
I got somewhere we can go for now
make it quick and don't be shy
with me

Sometimes,
I think about the mess I've made
and it's so much easier
to just walk away
But it finds me every time
and I can't help cryin' out for you
had another glass of wine
instead

I'll be fine
I said we'd be forever
that depends on if you wanna stay
I'll admit I made a mistake

and I'll be alright
if you decide you're tired of
givin' me another chance to try
I'm runnin' out of ways to say goodbye

And if you wanna be free,
I got no hold on you
'cause I see the hurt in your eyes,
and I know it ain't nothin' new

but if you ever get the chance,
to take a look around the room
and find you're alone
I'll be here if you wanna dance
again

I'll be fine
I said we'd be forever
that depends on if you wanna stay
I'll admit I made a mistake

and I'll be alright
if you decide you're tired of
givin' me another chance to try
I'm runnin' out of ways to say goodbye

I'll be fine
I said we'd be forever
that depends on if you wanna stay
I'll admit I made a mistake

and I'll be alright
if you decide you're tired of
givin' me another chance to try
I'm runnin' out of ways to say goodbye
Track Name: Stubborn Girl
I've fallen in love with a stubborn girl
the love we have is always in a whirl
but no matter how hard you try,
you can't make me leave her side
'cause I've fallen in love with a stubborn girl

One of these days she's gonna be my wife,
so I can see her for the rest of my life
but until that fateful day,
I'm gonna charm her heart away,
'cause one of these days that girl's gonna be my wife

When she walks,
I don't know how to move
I'm all tied up (oh)
And when she talks,
I've forgotten how to speak
I've lost my voice (oh)
She turns her eyes and I've completely lost my mind

This girl's gonna force me off the rails,
'cause she's convinced she loves someone else
But I'll do anything I can
because I'm a stubborn man,
and I've fallen in love with a stubborn girl
yes I did,
'cause I've fallen in love with a stubborn girl
yes I did,
'cause I've fallen in love with a stubborn girl
Track Name: Wheels
The sun was catching your eye,
felt like I was starting to fall
it was a bullet from a gun

I caught myself in a lie,
used to say I'd never just fall,
but you made it too hard to run

And the wheels
start turning,
with hearts
burning into one
(burning into one)

We lived time after time,
with hearts and minds made up
and my tapes were all in your car

I filled the summer with dreams,
you wrestled with your thoughts
and they never were all too far

As the wheels
keep turning,
and we
we do it just for fun

But when the light hits the trees for the hundredth time
will this be the love we had, or a fallacy
we've polished
to a shine

We ride under the sun,
make plans we'll never keep
so you can think of me when I'm gone

Just tell me I'm the one
I know you need to be free,
just don't keep me waiting long

If those wheels
keep turning
they might
just bring you back to me
(bring you back to me)
