Track Name: Better Now
Better Better Better now

We were so young
you and I so young
It's not impossible to believe

I was young and so obscene
You were the first grade beauty queen

oh my darling
we will be
better now

You took your love
away from me
and all I can do is weep.

As we walk our lives alone
they burn the pages of Gideon

oh my darling
we will be
better now

when your young and alone it's hard
when the light was gone
we held on

oh my darling
we will be
better now
Track Name: Holding On
So long so long
I've lost my way out here
So you've become
the one thing that I fear

I've been waiting for this moment so long
That every breath I'm holding exhales
where nobody can tell me I'm wrong
I'm holding on and I'll never fail

The morning Sun
it hits me when I rise
When you're gone
it's really no surprise

I've been waiting for this moment so long
That every breath I'm holding exhales
where nobody can tell me I'm wrong
I'm holding on and I'll never fail

So long so long
I've lost my way out here

Holding on
Holding on
Track Name: She Belongs To Me
Sunny days are ours forever
Look ahead it's just getting better
no I aint got no more distractions
looking forward not looking backward

I love everything about you
but I don't know where we are
and I don't know where to start

I've suffered for too long
and I'm over pretending nothing is wrong
Cause I know where she belongs

with me

I've surrendered everything
in my heart
cause this isn't ending
I know where she belongs

with me

Half of my life is a struggle
but I'm learning to let go
the other half I'm in trouble
so please come home

I know where she belongs
She belongs with me

I love everything about you
Track Name: Wine, Wine
A sub modern girl age 25
Tanqueray lipstick and cashmere eyes
she teases all the neighborhood boys
with her salt water curls
brown sugar baby is what they sing about her

oh I remember the time
when the wine was much sweeter and it lasted for days

Practiced in the politics of personality
you've got a jealous persuasion
drinking the cocktail of misery

you're the neighborhood aristricat
tripping the life fantastic
you must be a sucker for it

oh don't you run and hide
no one wants to settle down before their time

Suddenly you find yourself trying to hold on to some kind of life
without being absurd or losing it

I'm tired of being wrong all the time
so sugar
pour the wine

don't let anyone even try to hold you
to past parades with circumstantial overtones of younger years
and crocodile tears
don't get old just get over it

oh I remember the time
when the wine was much sweeter and it lasted for days

Suddenly you find yourself trying to hold to some kind of life

Suddenly you find yourself trying to hold on to your second wife

but don't lose your head

I'm tired of being wrong all the time
so sugar

pour the wine

pour the wine
Track Name: Do It Again
Sneak around while your friends are there
Sneak around behind their backs

You love the risk but you'd never dare
Do you still wish you could take it back

We don't care if you're coming home
You can stay there with your pretty friends

We just want our money back
from all the love we gave you

You bitch about your broken heart
attaching details to her final words

it's never something you think about
even when you don't speak for days

But she aint ever coming home
at least you could let her go

if not for the time you gave
do it to get sober

I wish you'd listen to me more lightly
We'd have a little less in common
a little more than we do

I know you hate it when I get frightened
I just get a little nervous about the things that you do
to pull me through

Oh don't you tell me that
I'm not something to laugh about
but girl if you could just see me now
we'd open everything

It's a question of doing wrong
when your'e finding out where you belong
but it's only when you finally go home
it becomes a question of who you are

she said she'd die for anyone
but she only lives for herself
No baby it's not what you've done

so do it again

I wish you'd listen to me more lightly
We'd have a little less in common
a little more than we do

I know you hate it when I get frightened
I just get a little nervous about the things that you do
to pull me through

Oh don't you tell me that
I'm not something to laugh about
but girl if you could just see me now
we'd open everything

and do it again
