Track Name: get gone girl
if something aint right
pack yo bags and leave
if something feels wrong
pack yo bags and leave

make you turn your back
on all your dreams
if something aint right
pack yo bags and leave
Track Name: mr. early bird
all roads lead some where
why not come with me on mine
i got a pocket full of dimes
a closet full of dreams
pretty songs in my mind
ready to go...ready to go
all roads lead some where
why not come with me on mine
i got a fist full of pride
a big toe dip in hope
a past known for trying
that's why my future keep's going
i got heart known for bleeding baby
and a sleeve that calls it home
like a bird i'm know for rising early
ready to go
all roads lead some where
why not come with me on mine

Track Name: up and down
she wants to be with him
she thinks he's funny
no one out there understands
they just don't get it
they just don't get it
how he lifts her up when her spirits are down
they just don't get it
how he makes her feel when there's no one around
they just don't get it
how they communicate with out making one sound
they just don't get it
up and down
she won't ignore him
or treat him like he's stupid
to her he's not a nuisance
no
to her he's something...else
they just don't get it
how he lifts her up when her spirits are down
they just don't get it
how he makes her feel when there's no one around
they just don't get it
how they communicate with out making one sound
they just don't get it
up and down
cause all she ever needed
was someone
to make her feel needed
and loved
all she ever needed
was someone
to make her feel needed
and loved
he made her feel...still
they just don't get it
how he lifts her up when her spirits are down
they just don't get it
how he makes her feel when there's no one around
they just don't get it
how they communicate with out making one sound
they just don't get it
up and down
Track Name: i remember
i remember
our first kiss
our first holiday
the first time
we said hello
don't you know
i remember
i remember
our first date
the first time i made
you laugh
you called me crazy
ain't it funny
what we remember
cause with each passing day
it gets harder now
to remember yo face
why bother child
feels like your slipping away
like sand in an hour glass
i remember
that first tear
the first time to hear
those words
sir
she's gone forever
those are the things girl
i'll remember
so where ever you are now
just know
i will love you forever
where ever you go child
just know
i will always remember
it's breaking my heart
but i'll never stop
no i won't, no i won't
so where ever you are now
just know
i will love you forever
cause i remember
our last kiss
our last holiday
the last time
we said goodbye
Track Name: marianna's song
you kept me hanging all the years
with the words you chose
your true intentions are still blurry
how much you really loved me well
that'll i'll never know
some things are just better left unsaid
so before you go
you ought to know that
if i can part your company
then there's nothing in this world i can't achieve
and it seems like
once i realized this i could see
things are never quite as bad as they seem
and i think i'll be ok
i wasn't above begging
i wasn't above pleading
it was obvious
this hold you had on me wasn't healthy
still you had no problems
taking advantage
i must be seriously ill
cause the further you pushed me
the closer i felt
before you walk away
i need to say
if i can part your company
then there's nothing in this world i can't achieve
and it seems like
once i realized this i could see
things are never quite as bad as they seem
as it seems...
so before you leave
you best believe
if i can part your company
then there's nothing in this world i can't achieve
and it seems like
once i realized this i could see
things are never quite as bad as they seem
and i think i'll be ok

Track Name: please don't
two wrongs don't make a right
no rights that's simply wrong baby
if two lovers can't get it right
it's time to go
to many silly things involved
too many people whispering in your ear moma
too many things go unresolved these days
go
don't i make ya laugh, don't i feel ya needs
go
please don't
too many things left unsaid
too many memories swimming in yo head moma
too many demons left unfed these days
so many sacrifices made in vain
so many things you said i need to change moma
so many red flags still remain unearthed
go
don't i make ya laugh, don't i feel ya needs
go
please don't
two wrongs don't make a right
no rights that's simply wrong baby
if two lovers can't seem to get along these days
it's time to go
don't i make ya laugh, don't i feel ya needs
go
please don't

and the rest of your life is
distance memories of things you meant to do
something's got to change
today
before it's to late
something's got to change
because people every where are loosing there faith
somethings got to happen soon
can't you see girl
the worlds become such an ugly place
something's got to change
something's got to change
Track Name: things we mean to say
nothing feels the same
i think it's over
at least it's over
for me
if i never made you sad
would you be leaving
would you be leaving me
everything we said
all the silence
the emotions
we feed
a mouth full of regret
can make you wonder
really wonder
oh my love
that's the way it goes
oh my love
round and round
oh my love
that's the way it goes
oh my love
round and round
i can not change the past
i'm done trying
apologizing to you
it never seems to last
your never satisfied either way
oh my love
that's the way it goes
oh my love
round and round
oh my love
that's the way it goes
oh my love
round and round
our love
our love goes
round and round
round and round
our love goes....
round and round
