Track Name: Drawing Conclusions
I've got a new life but I'm not sure that it's mine

Somewhere up above I'm drawing conclusions
And I don't know how you'll feel
Because I'm not the golden girl I was

(I kiss just like him
You kiss just like her)

(I am the one
Do you think that I can be the one to see through?)

I'll make it all right, and I'll make sure I'll make your night
Give what you have got because I'm already that far gone

Somewhere up above I'm drawing conclusions
And I don't know how you'll feel
Because I'm not the golden girl I was

(I kiss just like him
You kiss just like her)

(I am the one
Do you think that I can? Well I do.)

Scatter your love
Keep thinking that it will be enough
Gather it up
The little pieces will add up

Somewhere up above I'm drawing conclusions
And I don't know how you'll feel
Because I'm not the golden girl I was

(I kiss just like him
You kiss just like her)

(I am the one
Do you think that I can? I do, I do I do)
Track Name: Victory
What do you do and what's your name?
I knew I'm gonna let go
In Baton Rouge and picture frames history unfolds

With all the summers we swear we're gonna move
and get away from here
Run out of fuel and stay
It's too hard to go

Places we belong to don't belong to you

What do you think of all the things?
All the things you don't know?
Count the months and the weeks
til the moment when I say it's time to go

With all the summers we swear we're gonna move
and get away from here
Run out of fuel and stay
It's too hard to go

Victory or death

Places we belong to don't belong to you
Track Name: I Want You
I can't help but see the inconsistencies
And I certainly don't want to repeat
But something happens when you're gone, you say to me

So return. Return to me.
The wedding band that's on my hand that you've given me

I want you
I want you more than anything
Only one who can make me forget everything
I want you
I want you more than anything
Sounding through the static that is deafening

Let it go by, falling aside

Hold your breath and see if it will go away
Count to ten and back on every heartbeat
Your eyes betray you when you're gone and as you leave

So return. Return to me.
The wedding band that's on my hand that you've given me

I want you
I want you more than anything
Only one who can make me forget everything
I want you
I want you more than anything
Sounding through the static that is deafening

Let it go by, falling aside

Don't go, baby
Track Name: Oh, River
Tie a rope around us both
when the water throws us back and forth
Or drag the plans out from below
Heads down running out to meet the storm
Oh, no!

Hey, don't you wanna go?
Do you wanna go?

All the finer things we know
All the finer things we'll leave alone
If we choose to go that road
will we ever find our way back home?
Oh, no!

Hey, don't you wanna go?
Do you wanna go?

Go!

Although I intend to even if I don't get you
I won't let you down
Track Name: Maricopa County
We went down to Maricopa
We went down to where you're from

Do you know the words to say
Do you know the things we never should say
Oh, I'm sleeping in your bed
All these thoughts they're racing through my head

Welcome back to Maricopa
Welcome back to where you're from

You know the words to say
Do you know the things we never should say
Oh, I'm sleeping in your bed
All these thoughts they're racing through my head
Track Name: Sentiment
Through the murkiness I'll see the light
Confident that you were never right
All the time you took from me
All the time I know I'll never see

You declared once before
I might be so in love with you
I feel lost
No thanks to you
Take a breath
Heaven sent
I've had enough of your sentiment
I feel lost

Superseding what I knew was right
Laying down and letting out the light
So much time you took from me
So much time I know I'll never see

And I thought once before
that you might say something new
I feel lost
Not because of you
Hell bent on heaven sent
I've had enough of your sentiment
I feel lost
Track Name: San Ve San
Picture your life out on your own
Well I don't wanna see
You could see how far you've grown
and possibilities
How do you know?
I'll have to trust you
I'll have to trust you

The things that are dark and all the things that sparkle
in your beautiful heart will always give me a start
'cause it's yours
I'll do this forever if you can
And if there's something that you'd rather
then I'll bend

When the levers push us up and down
They will not control us
When the earth is pushing up the ground
It will comfort and console us
Thoroughly resisting when we're bound
'Cause we're so damn clever
But we still hear that awful sound that says we cannot sever

These ideas just won't go away
Why would they ever stop?
They would if you'd choose to make a change
I shudder at the thought
How do you know?
I'll have to trust you
I'll have to trust you

The things that are dark and all the things that sparkle
in your beautiful heart will always give me a start
'cause it's yours

When the levers push us up and down
They will not control us
When the earth is pushing up the ground
It will comfort and console us
Thoroughly resisting when we're bound
'Cause we're so damn clever
But we still hear that awful sound that says we cannot sever
