Track Name: Never Tell
Don't worry baby, it'll be alright. Well no it won't but you can't stop the fight, 'cause you know it's on its way. You had a good day and you're feeling fine. Forgot the trouble left it all behind, but you know it's gonna stay.

Pick up the pistol and pack it in. The only way to stop rain from rolling in. There's no such thing as 'begin again'. You're gonna let them down.

Pick up the pistol and pack it in. Their love is strong but it can never win. You're life is done and you can't live again. You're gonna let them down.

The voices in your house are calling you, but they don't get there's nothing you can't do. They don't know that you can't stay, 'cause you know it's on its way.
Track Name: Shoot To Kill
If I fall in love again, it'll only be 'cause I let my guard down. And I'll never let my guard down, so I'll never fall in love again.

If I lose it all again, it'll only be because you're around. And you're never gonna be around, so I'll never lose it all again.

Yes I will. I'm a boson. I am prey to spooky action at a distance. Yes I will. And I hope you'll be the strange to my charm, the up to my down.

It's better to have never loved, than to carry all this wreckage around. And if I could shoot to kill it now, then I would shoot to kill it now.
Track Name: Little White Lies
I can't sit. I need it now but it doesn't fit. It's a double lie but I can't quit. As long as no one else konws it, I'll hold on.

It's the little white lies that kill. Don't start or you'll never stop.

I'm not through. I've only just started knowing you. I'll do whatever I have to do. A million stories that I can use to hold on.

It's the little white lies that kill. Don't start or you'll never stop.

She found a letter yesterday. I can't remember how to explain it away. It's all over.
Track Name: Love In Stockholm
Oh my god is this ever gonna stop? No, it's never gonna stop.

Love is a Stockholm Syndrome.
Track Name: Different Oceans
We're perfect for each other 'cause we break each other's hearts in the same way. And we're always trying to go back to the same day when we thought we knew that all was right. But it's alright that it's never gonna be alright. And we're ships in different oceans. I'm the day and you're the night.

The dream that put us together and the world that pushed us apart are the same pain. And we both wish we could get back on the same train that took us to when all was right. But it's alright that it's never gonna be alright. And we're ships in different oceans. I'm the shade and you're the light.

We gotta give it up. We gotta let it go. I think you know we're both strong enough to know that if it hasn't worked by now, it'll never work anyhow. But is that good enough?

No it's not good enough. I wanna fight 'til we get it right.
Track Name: When It Comes
I found it, and I wasn't even looking for it. Now I don't know what to do with it, so I'm asking you.

I had my idea of a complete life. It wasn't perfect but it was my life. But now there's you.

How did you get to take my perfect plan to live my life alone, to be the perfect man, and get that little thing inside me to need that little thing inside you?

I want that quiet life I had to come back, but I know that there's no going back. There's only you.
Track Name: Believe the Lie
Every night I am ready to die. I see the falling sky. It's there all the time. And what you and I know to be a life is slyly slipping by.

When the world has come undone, and there's nothing I can do, I will believe the lie, and stay with you.
