Track Name: Be Bad
I don't understand it, no it doesn't make sense
Why's he calling you, when he's got a girlfriend
Now some may say it's cheating, well whatever it is
I don't care what he says, you're better than this

Cause a guy like him is a dime a dozen, always wanting more, satisfied with nothing
Give him an inch and he'll take a mile,
But you will be the one to cry

Cause you just make the good boys wanna be bad
You bring out the worst side of the best guys
Oh you make them reach for, what they can't have
You just make the good boys wanna be bad

Now don't misunderstand me, I know how you feel
He's got you so confused, you think his love is real
Now tell me if he leaves her, and all your dreams come true
What makes you think he won't do the same thing to you

Cause a guy like him is a dime a dozen, always wanting more, satisfied with nothing
Give him an inch and he'll take a mile,
But you will be the one to cry

Cause you just make the good boys wanna be bad
You bring out the worst side of the best guys
Oh you make them reach for, what they can't have
You just make the good boys wanna be bad

And you can't say that I didn't warn you girl
Cause I've been there before and it always ends the same way
I know it's hard, but you've gotta see the truth
Cause when you play this game, you're gonna lose

Cause a guy like him is a dime a dozen, always wanting more, satisfied with nothing
Give him an inch and he'll take a mile,
But you will be the one to cry

Cause you just make the good boys wanna be bad
You bring out the worst side of the best guys
Oh you make them reach for, what they can't have
You just make the good boys wanna be bad
Track Name: Best Love
You had it made, then I came along
And put your defenses to the test
When you started to cave, you started to feel lost, Cause you knew that she still had your best

Cause the grass is always greener, and it's so much better to love from afar, the light is easier to bear when you shield your eyes

But I, I left my armour at the door, I couldn't move on without shedding my skin, I played your tug of war for so long, but you wouldn't let me in
Someday you'll realize you wasted so much time, when you could have had the best love
You could have had the best love

Always chasing a dream, that you wanted so bad to forget, but you kept on hanging on
And no matter how I tried, it seemed that I could never compare, and I was obsessed with what went wrong

Cause the grass is always greener, and it's so much better to love from afar, the light is easier to bear when you shield your eyes

But I, I left my armour at the door, I couldn't move on without shedding my skin, I played your tug of war for so long, but you wouldn't let me in
Someday you'll realize you wasted so much time, when you could have had the best love
You could have had the best love


Cause the grass is always greener, and it's so much better to love from afar, the light is easier to bear when you shield your eyes

But I, I left my armour at the door, I couldn't move on without shedding my skin, I played your tug of war for so long, but you wouldn't let me in
Someday you'll realize you wasted so much time, when you could have had the best love
You could have had the best love
Track Name: Break Me
Oh you had me from the start, with one look you cut right through my heart
I know you didn't realize, cause I'm good and I know how to hide

You say I'm so strong that I'm like steel, cause I've been fighting so long, but these wounds won't heal
I need you to take care, I need you to be kind, cause when it comes to you, you may be surprised

That I am fragile, and I am weak
If you wanted to you could break me
Cause I am fragile and I am weak
And if you wanted to you could break me

When you look me in the eye, you've got me frozen, it's like I'm paralyzed
I've always been so good with words
But you get me, you hit me where it hurts

You say I'm so strong that I'm like steel, cause I've been fighting so long, but these wounds won't heal
I need you to take care, I need you to be kind, cause when it comes to you, you may be surprised

That I am fragile, and I am weak
If you wanted to you could break me
Cause I am fragile and I am weak
And if you wanted to you could break me

Cause I am fragile and I am weak
And if you wanted to you could break me
Cause I am fragile and I am weak
And if you wanted to you could break me
Oh if you wanted to you could break me
Track Name: Change
Why do we keep going round in circles, it's driving me crazy
You scream at me calling me names then you turn around calling me baby

I know it's confusing and it's such a shame
We keep on losing it's more than a game
What are we doing and what can we say
We can't start over with so much at stake

And all I ever wanted was someone to tell me everything would be alright
I'm running out of reasons to stay and it kills me to have to say goodbye
I can't live in the past holding onto things that have all slipped away
Now I've gotta let go of what could have been
This time I need a change

Why do we do all these things to each other it's getting worse lately
And even with each passing day I can feel it, you're starting to hate me

I know it's confusing and it's such a shame
We keep on losing it's more than a game
What are we doing and what can we say
We can't start over with so much at stake

And all I ever wanted was someone to tell me everything would be alright
I'm running out of reasons to stay and it kills me to have to say goodbye
I can't live in the past holding onto things that have all slipped away
Now I've gotta let go of what could have been
This time I need a change

I'm done with all the lies, something's gotta give
And I'm not gonna cry, I'll get over it

Cause all I ever wanted was someone to tell me everything would be alright
I'm running out of reasons to stay and it kills me to have to say goodbye
I can't live in the past holding onto things that have all slipped away
Now I've gotta let go of what could have been
This time I need a change
Track Name: Off My Mind
I've gotta get you out of my system, I've gotta get you off of my mind
But how do I move on when no one compares
They only keep me occupied

I've gotta break these chains that bind me, I try to shake them off so desperately
But you pull them tighter, string me along
It's sad but I'm so gone

How do you do it, live with yourself
And all of these games you play
I should have seen through it right from the start
But I chose to give it all away

And now I'm sitting here broken hearted,
Won't you come and give me a break
Cause I've been waiting for so long
For someone to rescue me
And if you continue to pull my heart strings
I don't think that I could survive
So I've gotta get you out of my system
I've gotta get you, off of my mind

I've gotta find a new resolution,
I've gotta clear some space in my heart
Cause you drilled right through me, straight to the core
But I keep coming back for more

Oh, and how do you do it, live with yourself
And all of these games you play
I should have seen through it, right from the start
But I chose to give it all away

And now I'm, sitting here broken hearted
Won't you come and give me a break
Cause I've been waiting for so long
For someone to rescue me
And if you continue to pull my heart strings
I don't think that I could survive
So I've gotta get you out of my system
I've gotta get you off of my mind

So give me the key, unlock these chains you've wrapped me in
Cause they're weighing me down
Set me free, let me go
Cause I wanna forget that I ever knew your name
And I wanna erase all the memories,but mostly all the pain
Oh how you haunt me, let me go

Cause I've been sitting here broken hearted
Won't you come and give me a break
Cause I've been waiting for so long
For someone to rescue me
And if you continue to pull my heart strings
I don't think that I could survive
So I've gotta get you out of my system
I've gotta get you off of my mind
Track Name: Ours
I'm gonna clear away the dust that's settled, dry my eyes and pour a cup of coffee
And as I go through all our photographs I find the strength to put the past behind me

I walk through these empty rooms and wonder where we went wrong, once upon a time we had it all, but now it's long gone

I'm packing boxes of memories, and with each one I feel more free
I'll sift through the wreckage and I'll nurse my battle scars
As I close the door for the last time on the house that was ours

And I remember all the arguing our voices, they echo through the hallway
And I can see you on your hands and knees your begging, though you know it's already too late

I walk through these empty rooms and wonder where we went wrong, once upon a time we had it all, but now it's long gone

I'm packing boxes of memories, and with each one I feel more free
I'll sift through the wreckage and I'll nurse my battle scars
As I close the door for the last time on the house that was ours

One by one, I will pick up all the pieces, and time will heal this shattered heart and it will mend these broken dreams, and I'll be strong though on the inside I am crying, but so long to what we shared, I bet you thought I'd never leave, no

I'm packing boxes of memories, and with each one I feel more free
I'll sift through the wreckage and I'll nurse my battle scars
As I close the door for the last time on the house that was ours
I'll sift through the wreckage and I'll nurse my battle scars
As I close the door for the last time on the house that was ours
