Track Name: Good Things
They say good things come to those who wait
Well I've been waiting here for eternity
See those good things never came my way
Oh and they left me alone while I waited so patiently

Everything will work itself out
In due time I know that's always true
But right now I am filled with all this doubt
Oh and was there a love between me and you

Oh no you can't let me go like that
Oh this had to mean something
And oh damn you just let me go like that
Singing this didn't mean a thing
This didn't mean a thing to you yeah

You say good things come to those who wait
Maybe in your own reality
Because in mine you were running for the gate
You left me alone before I entered a plea

Oh no you can't let me go like that
Oh this had to mean something
And oh damn you just let me go like that
Singing this didn't mean a thing
This didn't mean a thing to you yeah

I tried for so long, I tried to me strong
I tried for so long, I tried, I tried to me strong

Oh no you can't let me go like that
Oh well this had to mean something
And oh damn you just let me go like that
Screaming this didn't mean a thing
This didn't mean a thing to you yeah
It didn't mean a thing to you

So where are my good, good, good, good things
Track Name: Serenity
Spaces that I fill
My mind with desire
Hopeful that will
Is stronger than fire
They flame is my name
For who I'm supposed to be
So justify the blame
Just for some serenity
Serenity

I struggle to confine
One place at one time
And I know just what is mine
Well I refuse to see the lines
If shame is the game
For who I'm supposed to be
Identify the claim
Just for some serenity
Serenity
Track Name: Bad People
Go on and use me
Until you can't get enough
'Cause I've got plenty
Ooo of that lovin' stuff
Hell I've been up and down
I'm always waiting' around
For someone
And that someone is you

Well I've been had, had, had, had
Lord I've been abused
And I've been sad, sad, sad, sad
Lord I've got the blues
And I have never met someone
As messed up as you
You better get gone
Oh get gone with it yeah

Oh you are searchin'
For your lost soul
Yeah you are lookin'
For someone to control
Quit lookin' at me
With those dark eyes
You're comin' after me
That beauty is your disguise
And now I see who you are
No I'm not your fool
You better get gone
Ah get gone with it
Yeah yeah yeah
Get gone with it now baby
Track Name: My So Called Friends
My so-called friends well they don't know me
They only come around to talk shit and waste all my good energy
Lately these days I've been noticing who's surrounds;
People that don't care for me and never knew what I was about

Everyone has there place in my life this I know
Some of them are lessons that have helped me grow
Some things I will go through again, and again, and again
So I guess I'll find out who are my so-called friends

My so-called friends I don't think they understand
They're always telling me they'll be here whenever I need a helping hand
But whenever I call them they are nowhere to be found
Well I guess when their tree falls, they'll be the only one to hit the cold ground

Everyone has there place in my life this I know
Some of them are lessons that have helped me grow
Some things I will go through again, and again, and again
But I guess I'll find out by the end

All I ever wanted was a buddy
That could be my friend and remain
No I never wanna use somebody
I just expected the same
All I ever really wanted was a buddy
That knew more than my first name
But I guess I'm finding out
Who are my so-called
My so-called friend

My so-called friends well they lost out on me
You know they should've known better than to take for granted this company
Sadly I knew this would happen all along
All I can say is thank you for helping me to write this song

Everyone has there place in my life this I know
Some of them are lessons that have helped me grow
Some people I'll go through again, and again, and again
But I guess found who are my so called friends
Track Name: Crash
(Verse 1)
Oh darling
it must be rough
Giving all yourself
But never enough
To get what you need
To the places you dream
One day, one day
You'll be free

(Verse 2)
Oh darling
It must be hard
Selling your soul
Just to be a star
But it's killing me
Just to watch you bleed
One day, one day
You'll be free

(Chorus)
Crash, crash on me
And I'll show, show you
What you can be
When you're crying, cry on me
One day, one day, one day
I'm gonna set you free

(Verse 3)
Oh darling
You'd give anything
Just to be on the radio
Or a TV screen
The American Idol
The American dream
One day, one day
You'll be free

(Chorus)

(Verse 4)
Wait
There's another way
If you just hold on
For the brighter days
So get off your knees
Stop begging please
Cause today is your day
That you'll be free yeah

(Chorus)
Track Name: Heartbeat
At the slight of hand I lose my faith
The sun can no longer show me the way
Do I believe in the words of someone else
Or do I believe in… why don't I think for myself

Yes, won't you think about it
Yes, you better think about it

In a big black book with golden edges
You never gave you took, you'll go down a legend
Can you believe, can you conceive
This catastrophe and the world is bleeding

You know I'm waiting on a heartbeat
A heartbeat, a heartbeat, a heartbeat
Whoa I was waiting for me

Well and it took me low, further than I'd like to go
I lost myself and everything I've known
Well I couldn't dream that this could be me
Somebody shake me so I can wake up, wake up

You know I'm waiting on a heartbeat
A heartbeat, a heartbeat, a heartbeat
Oh I was waiting for me
You know I'm waiting on a heartbeat
A heartbeat, a heartbeat, a heartbeat
Whoa I was waiting for me
Well I was waiting for me
I'm always waiting for me

Is reality a duality
Is the world really black and white
Or are the lessons I choose how I win of lose
Learn on my own the difference between wrong and right

You know I'm waiting on a heartbeat
A heartbeat, a heartbeat, a heartbeat
Oh I was waiting for me
You know I'm waiting on a heartbeat
A heartbeat, a heartbeat, a heartbeat
Whoa I was waiting for me
Well I was waiting for me
I'm always waiting for me
I gotta let it be
Track Name: A Day of Rest
I see that my hands, my hands are tied
And I know it was me, me who has lied
The truth holds water that I cannot bear
Take me out, out of my head
Make me lay down, down in this bed

I fear what I, I cannot feel
By now love seems like it’s not so real
But my heart does not, not seem to care
What is here and what is there
What I can have and what is unfair
I will define just what is despair
By the end of this, the end of this…
Track Name: Walls
You will never admit that you want me
You will never admit that you care
You will never convince yourself you need me
You will never admit that you’re scared

Oh ‘cause I’ve got your, your confession
Whispered in my ear
And I’ve got your deception
Narrowed down to fear

So hold on to your walls as long as you can
‘Cause I'm breakin’ them down with this fiery in hand
So hold on to your love as strong as you can
‘Cause I’m coming for you next
You better be, you better be careful where you stand

You will admit that you’re crazy
You will never admit that you wasted time
You will never convince yourself completely
You will never admit that you never tried

‘Cause I’ve captured the deepest essence of you
And I’m holding your heart and there is
Nothing you can do
Oh there is nothing you can do

So hold on to your walls as long as you can
‘Cause I'm breakin’ them down with this fiery in hand
So hold on to your love as strong as you can
‘Cause I’m coming for you next
You better be, you better be
‘Cause I’m coming you next
You better be, you better be careful where you stand

Oh ‘cause I’ve got your, your confession
Whispered in my ear
And I’ve got your deception
Narrowed down to fear

So hold on to your walls as long as you can
‘Cause I'm breakin’ them down with this fiery in hand
So hold on to your love as strong as you can
‘Cause I’m coming for you next
You better be, you better be
‘Cause I’m coming you next
You better be, you better be careful where you stand
Track Name: Colors
She dreams in colors
Of places far away
She sees in silver
A shinier tint of gray
You see, It's easier to dream
Of those brighter days
Oh and it's so much lesser of an extreme
So she stays in a haze

He keeps it so strong
So no one else will see
Oh just what is wrong
It's all a mystery
So if you tell them not to look
Oh and they never will, never will, never will
I can read you just like a book
And I know just how you feel
I know how you feel

So you don't wanna be saved
And I can see why
'Cause depending on others
Is depending on lies

Oh and we, we all need
Someone in our lives
And I could be that someone
If you'd realize
If you'd realize
