You are free to make your choices as poor as they may be, It’s your life you’re living, it don’t belong to me, so If you want to stay with him ain’t nothing I will do Unlike that little boy you got I know that I don’t own you I may have been a casualty, it don’t matter in the end Just as long as it was worth it for you to lose a friend Well I can’t make you love me and I don’t need you to It’s true, I get lonely, but I really have got better things to do.

It’s clear that you Can’t see you’re worth ‘Cause you Keep wavering back and forth The dead can’t always Be preserved Accept the love that you deserve Baby I could love you right- Love you, love you A-All all night it’s true I could do better by you I could do better by you I could do better by you I could do better by you Well I seen the ways he treats you- I guess it ain’t that bad But baby I could give you the greatest lovin’ you’ve ever had ‘Cause somethin’ magic happens Every time you touch my hand Take it from a woman and give that man the can Cause I could do better by you I could do better by you I could do so much better by you You call me up, bring me by You’re working up my appetite You’re not alone inside your room I can smell your perfume You call me up, bring me by You’re working up my appetite You’re not alone inside your room I can smell your perfume Where will you stay tonight Who’s arms will you choose Say you will, or say you might Always an excuse Where will you stay tonight, Who’s arms will you choose You’re working up my appetite Got nothing left to loose Where will you stay tonight, Who’s arms will you choose You’re working up my appetite Got nothing left to loose Cause I could do Better by you

Hello. I know We haven’t spoken in years But today I just came to say You look so lovely in white But tonight I won’t even dream That you might be coming back to me Congratulations On a beautiful wedding Let’s hear three cheers For the art of forgetting. Let’s share a toast- Here’s to all our ghosts. Here’s to your new life Your beautiful wife And the art of forgetting. I slept in the airport. Was the least I could do. I said, “It was worth it”. That I would do anything for you. We ruled Pensacola For two short days Who knew I’d never see you again After we parted ways. Congratulations For moving on For finally finding Where you belong. Let’s raise a glass- Here’s to our past. Here’s to us- And what we’ve become Through the art of forgetting.

Yeah, it’s been a while Maybe even long enough to say I hope that you find happiness I hope that you find love I hope that you love her Just enough to treat her right I hope you feel at peace enough To finally realize All is fair in love and war Doesn’t mean you need to fight You can’t find what you’re looking for If you won’t turn on the light You can’t solve any problems without swallowing your pride Just promise me you’ll Let her see you cry Where do you go Where do you go when you’ve become The habits you once hated The demons you run from Know that I’m not proud But I still need to admit I’ve done what I once criticized I’ve been a hypocrite But just because I sympathize Does not mean I condone I’m working every day To make my choices all my own If you can’t be faithful You’re better off alone You’re old enough by now You should know

I’m sticking out my neck here; But I’ll do it for you dear. I just want to know I’m worth You telling me the words. I’ll sacrifice addictions, I’ll compromise convictions. I just want to know I’m worth What you said I deserved Oo-oh- It’s okay, But things can’t stay this way. Oo-oh, it’s okay, But something’s got to change So tell me, can you stand To do this on your own? Do you really have What it takes to be alone? Oo-oh- It’s okay, But things can’t stay this way. Oo-oh, it’s okay, But something’s got to change Are you scared To be alone.

I’ve been working so hard Just to keep my head above the water, and- I’ll be damned- To let you make this any Harder. When I feel alone That’s just because I am. ‘Cause now that I am grown I don’t need you here to hold my hand. Why stress about your money When you could stress about your time. These grains of sand are falling In the glass that is your life. You’ll use them all up fighting Just battling your mind. The parts of you still killing off The parts that haven’t died That haven’t died Fear can start a fire You can let it burn Does it even matter If you never learn? In a world built for convenience It will never be enough. That’s how this generation Has gotten so fucked up.

Three hundred miles With you on my mind In three feet of snow This cold is all I know I would go anywhere For the people that I care about If I already have to drive Then what’s a few more miles? Six hundred miles But you make it worth my while You say I’m insane But I kind of like the rain I would brave any storm If you would just stay to keep the blankets warm You don’t have to leave My love is delivery La Niña, La Niña Can’t keep ya from me La Niña, La Niña, I need ya company La Niña, La Niña Can’t keep ya from me La Niña, La Niña

The space I occupy’s a mess and so’s the space inside my head I sift through crumpled papers, I dust off old ideas. I smile, I make myself new friends everywhere I go But they can’t cure the loneliness that’s swelling in my throat. This is what I asked for, my solitude, my space. The tides are rising every night, it comes and goes in waves. Ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay, ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay-oooh. I stand alone, atop my roof, harvesting my crops. I grow and sew my vegetables inside a tiny box. If only I could harvest love, plant it in my yard- I’d have a hand to grab onto when times were getting hard. This is what I asked for, my solitude, my space. The tides are rising every night, it comes and goes in wavs. Ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay, ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay-oooh. I’m living on the coast now, so I really can’t complain- But I can’t hep but wonder if you’re whispering my name. I guess it doesn’t matter- in the end, it’s all the same. I’ve got a lot to do now and, I think that love can wait. Ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay, ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay ooh-ay, ooh-ay-ay-oooh. Ay-oooh.
