Track Name: Get You Right
I tried for you to see me,
But you confused me with the air.
You'll never see it,
But You'll always feel it there.

I tried for you to see me,
I stood right in your sight.
I tell myself you miss me,
But how could you miss me every time?

Oh, I tried. But i just couldn't get you right

I tried for you to love me.
I tried to find your heart.
But you kept it from me
and you kept us far apart.

I though that if i waited long enough,
I'd be what you needed
But what you'll see is,
What you need isn't always gonna need you back

Oh, I tried. But i just couldn't get you right

I've been hit hard with dismay
and I've barely the will to say
That somehow I'll find a way to get you right.
Somehow I'll find a way to get you right.
Track Name: You Can't Get Unfamous
Misery
Could you release or loosen up your grip on me?
It's strangling and stealing all the air I need to keep up pursuit

Honestly
Nothing in the world has meant this much to me
If this is wrong I'll never believe in anything again

I'm waiting for a sign from you
Any little sign would do
Blink an eye or mouth a word
So i know my heart's been heard

Was it worth it
To chase a dream so hard to catch you lose your breath?
And with it comes a broken heart you just can't fix
It just wont seem to mend

Oh I lost my mind
Obsessing over all the things I couldn't find
Now I'm out of time

I'm waiting for a sign from you
Any little sign would do
Blink an eye or mouth a word
Just so I know I've been heard
I can't go on living this life
Knowing just how hard I've tried
Without the girl to show for it
My heart may never quit

This love is like fame
There's no going back
'Cause you can't get unfamous
Oh, but you can get infamous

I'm waiting for a sign from you
Any little sign would do
Blink an eye or mouth a word
Just so I know I've been heard
I was desperate so I prayed to God
But caught sleeping on the job
I have no girl to show for this
But my heart may never quit
Track Name: Eyelashless
I painted it too vividly
I made it too real
Now I can't live without
What I can't have

I confused my reality
With the pictures in my head
I got carried away and there's just no coming back
When your heart knows what it wants
Or who...

But how could this not be right
When it feels like
I gave all I had to give?

I was wrapped up in a fantasy
I was tied up in a dream
Though I awoke my heart slept on

I wont settle for just anyone
I'll never say "this will have to do"
I can't change how I feel
But I can try and change your mind
For now this pain will have to do

But how could this not be right
When it feels like
I gave all i had?

If I sang it loud,
If I scream and shout,
Would you hand me your heart and let me tie it down?
Just to know it's mine
Just to put my mind at ease
Ill never sleep if I don't know your heart is mine to keep

It's just hard for me when I believed for so long
One too many things
And one too many times I wished
I'm eyelashless

I'm losing faith in destiny
I'm giving up on fate
I say it like I know but If I think I see a sign
I know I'll come running every time

But how could this not be right
When it feels like
I gave all I had?

If I sang it loud
If I scream and shout
Would you hand me your heart and let me tie it down?
Just to know it's mine
Just to put my mind at ease
I have to know your heart won't go and leave mine all alone
Track Name: Svengali
I told myself I'd never find my way back here
I fooled myself so well
Thought you might just come around
I slept through winter just to wake
To a colder march than I could take
I calmed this aching heart
But just enough to put me back to sleep

I'm kinda sorry about what I've done
A little sorry for myself
But get this straight
About this chase
I'm tired from it
But not tired of it

So I'm waiting
'Cause time is set there's nothing I can do
Waiting
But nothing ever turns inside of you
Your heart won't speak to me
And I refuse to look, refuse to see
Any signs that say our hearts aren't meant to be

I'm looking for the will I've lost
I'm searching for my life
It's so clear without you here I can't go on
So take a breath, recompose
Dress your wounds and find some hope
'Cause if you can't
You'll forever be...

Waiting
Cause time is set there's nothing I can do
Waiting
But nothing ever turns inside of you
Your heart won't speak to me
And I refuse to look, refuse to see
Any signs that say our hearts aren't meant to be

Do you build me just to break me?
Did you meet me just to haunt me?
Would you see me just to see me
And then stay here just to please me?
And I pray that something I could say
Might change your mind, my dear
I'd kill to see the yellow of your walls
And purple of your floor
I'd gladly drive on aimlessly
For now and forever more
If you'd unmix your signals


I'm waiting
Cause time is set there's nothing I can do
Waiting
But nothing ever turns inside of you
Your heart won't speak to me
And I refuse to look, refuse to see
Any signs that say our hearts aren't meant to be
Track Name: Trick Candle
I'll love you forever
I'll wait for you always
As long as I'm living
In my heart you can be
But I'll never get over
The feeling that arose
In my heart when you said
You're not in love with me

You're always batting lashes
But these eyes, they suffer from a case
Of chronic misreception
I'm always hoping the light
Might find the time to drape itself on me
In a more revealing fashion

What's it take
When will you love me?
What's there left to do?

I'll love you forever
I'll wait for you always
As long as I'm living
In my heart you can be
But I'll never get over
The feeling that arose
In my heart when you said
You're not in love with me

I thought I saw you laughing
But I was wrong my ears play tricks on me
Then laugh at what they've done
I swore I felt you near me
But when I looked you'd vanished perfectly
And just like that you'd gone

What's it take
When will you love me?
What's there left to do?

I tried to blow you out
You flickered and you waved
But still your flaming heart
Burned for someone else
Discouraged and dismayed
I'll forever wait
But time may never tell

I'll love you forever
Ill wait for you always
As long as I'm living
In my heart you can be
But I'll never get over
The feeling that arose
In my heart when you said
You're not in love with me

Your heart never spoke to your head the way
That mine insists to from day to day
It kills to know what you wanna say
"Boy what you're looking for you'll never get
My heart's not yours to protect
I'm sorry
I'm sorry"
