Track Name: Lines of a Love Song
Sometime I fly
To you in my dreams

I still taste the disgrace-ful
Words I didn’t mean

And All the pretty girls don’t mean the world
Like you once did

Sick of making maps, double checking that
They lead to where we once lived


All my mistakes, all the occasions
They are over now
And you walked on, smiling I thought
That I had a chance some how


No one is you
But We already knew that
No late night trips for two
But We already knew that
Between the coffee cups and pictures of falling in love
I know that you moved on
And maybe you miss me, or maybe you don’t
In the lines of a love song


Drown out through the spout
Flood of well meaning

You look back, and hate that
I was there, where you’d been

Late calls, I put all
My words into your ear

But your machine, just screams
That you have already gone


All my mistakes, all the occasions
They are over now
And you walked on, smiling I thought
That I had a chance some how


No one is you
But We already knew that
No late night trips for two
But We already knew that
Between the coffee cups and pictures of falling in love
I know that you moved on
And maybe you miss me, or maybe you don’t
In the lines of a love song


I don’t need to hear youre better
It only breaks my heart
And I have tried to just move on
Its harder than I thought
So go, I will, I promise still
That my heart is still yours
And stay away, is what you say
But I know I cant anymore

No one is you
But We already knew that
No late night trips for two
But We already knew that
Between the coffee cups and pictures of falling in love
I know that you moved on
And maybe you miss me, or maybe you don’t
In the lines of a love song
Track Name: Sinking
Where are you now?
She Screamed on the telephone line
Well I was too stupid
To know this was your goodbye

And don’t say I don’t love you
Cause you know I always did
My heart hangs on your bed post
With the dreams we made as kids


Baby I’m confused and I just want to be happy again
And kissing you goodbye for the last time is the hardest thing I ever did

I wish you could see that
I’m just losing myself
Taking on water and I’m
Sinking, I need some help
And everybody said that I’m wrong including all your friends
But I’m just a mixed up man trying to win you back again


No more phone surgeries
I don’t have my scrubs on anymore
And my room feels empty without
Your t-shirts hanging on my floor

And I bet you’re happy
Even though I still hate myself
The hardest part of love
Is thinking of somebody else


Baby I’m confused and I just want to be happy again
And kissing you goodbye for the last time is the hardest thing I ever did

I wish you could see that
I’m just losing myself
Taking on water and I’m
Sinking, I need some help
And everybody said that I’m wrong including all your friends
But I’m just a mixed up man trying to win you back again

Portland, Maine won't stay the same without you here
I'm dying to love you don't you see it so clear?
Maybe you'd find out a way, Maybe someday like today
I'll get you back if only you could see
And I miss you so and I want you to know that
I will always love you
Track Name: Someday
Don’t pretend you don’t see me
I’ve been watch your eyes, slip around gracefully

Your southern tendencies
Sometimes they get lost with me

Between the Mason Dixon Line
I’ve seen it all before, but you want me here this time

You don’t have to say a word
You say that you don’t care but we know that’s absurd

You know that you
And I know that you
Still think about me
Still Think about me

You know I got
We know that I got
A thing for Southern Girls
Wrapped up in Sundress and Pearls

And I won’t
No You know I won’t
Give up on you
Even if you’re daddy tells me to

Cause this is
Well this is
My Chance to say
I’m gonna make you mine someday

Well you’ve got a boyfriend now
Do you think that he knows, well I don’t care somehow

You’re embarrassed I can see
But that’s not because, I’m chasing you lately

Go ahead and run away
we both know you’ll be coming back some day

Don’t you even understand?
I’m the only one, that can ever be your man

You know that you
And I know that you
Still think about me
Still Think about me

You know I got
We know that I got
A thing for Southern Girls
Wrapped up in Sundress and Pearls

And I won’t
No You know I won’t
Give up on you
Even if you’re daddy tells me to

Cause this is
Well this is
My Chance to say
I’m gonna make you mine someday
