Track Name: Stay
Oh, I believe you
When you say what to do
It's kind of a secret of mine
and I try to obey
When you teach me to play
These games that are stuck in my mind

And i'm hoping that you ask me to stay
and i'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'll get down on my knees if you need me to beg
oh i'm hoping that you ask me to stay

I play the fool
cause it's easy to do
it's always a pleasure of mine
and when you push me away
it's a dismal display
of these games that you play with my mind


And i'm hoping that you ask me to stay
and i'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'll get down on my knees if you need me to beg
oh i'm hoping that you ask me to stay

So Hold me close till we see the light
and we'll stumble up to the roof
from there we'll kiss the night good bye
while we sober up to the truth
That you and i are intertwined
for better or for worse
oh this could be a blessing
or just another bloody curse
what do you
choose

And i'm hoping that you ask me to stay
and i'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'll get down on my knees if you need me to beg
oh i'm hoping that you ask me to stay

I'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'm hoping that you ask me to stay
Track Name: There With You
Passing drinks
and passing time
shoot a smile
show that i'm fine
but still this heart is blue
with all that we've been through

I know that this looks like fun to you
with all the things that i have to do
but i'd rather
be there
with you

Shifting scenes
and shifty minds
rubbing shoulders
and brushing thighs
but i promise that i'll be true
I could never do that to you

I know that this looks like fun to you
with all the things that you hear i do
but i'd rather
be there
with you

Will you tell me
how far can this go
will you tell me
if it's the end
of the road

Passing Drink
And Passing Time
Rubbing shoulder
and brushing thighs
but i promise that i'll be true
I could never do that to you
I know that this looks like fun to you
with all the things that you hear i do
But i'd rather
be there
with you

will you tell me
how far can this go
will you tell me
if it's the end
of the road

passing drinks
and passing time
rubbing shoulders
and brushing thighs
I know that this looks like fun to you
with all the things that you hear i do
I know that this should frighten you
with everything that we have to lose
but i'd rather
be there
with you

but i'd rather
be there
with you

but i'd rather
be there
with you
Track Name: Walls
These walls are not my prison
when i lock the door by choice
but these walls are not a sanctuary
when all i hear is my own voice
I go through the door as a free man can
but in your walls i can't be who i am

This life is not my prison
when i can't ignore the truth
that this life aint no paradise
when it bears all it's fruit to you
i go through this life
as best as i can
but you can't get much
without a helping hand

And so you say to me
with such a delicate stare
focus on getting what you want
and then maybe i will care
but what if that thing i want
is to give you what you need
how much should i want you
if you need me to beg and plead
oh i won't live on my knees
so find someone else to tease

this body is not my prison
when the wasteland is all around
bu this body is not a play ground
open to the whole town
i go through the motions
as anyone would
i try to move forward
but it's doing no good


And so you say to me
with such a delicate stare
focus on getting what you want
and then maybe i will care
but what if that thing i want
is to give you what you need
how much should i want you
if you need me to beg and plead
oh i won't live on my knees
so find someone else to tease

Oh i am not a prisoner
but you make me feel that way
and if i weren't such a fool
I'd have no reason to stay
I go to escape and be my own man
but i can't get away without you pulling me in

I go to escape and be my own man
but i can't get away without you pulling me in
Track Name: Seventeen
When i was seventeen i was so self assured, to
call me naive would be too kind
The things i said and did
must have seemed so cruel, but
i wasn't in my right mind
oh tel me have i really changed

when i was seventeen there was hope in my eyes, so
what dimmed the light
for all the pain i felt i'd do it all again, but
there's no turning time
oh, this empty glossy stare

always there is some one there to say to you
you are lucky you have got your health
the last thing that i want to hear
is i'll live long in this hell
oh well

when i was seventeen i had yet to know this shame, but
i still indulge in pride
for all the teachers there to push your ego down boy,
it's still your job to try
and i feel so unprepared

when i was seventeen there was hope in my eyes, so
what dimmed the light
for all the pain i felt i'd do it all again, but
there's no turning time
oh, this empty glossy stare

always there is someone there to say to you
you are lucky you have got your health
the last thing that i want to hear
is i'll live long in this hell
oh well

WHEN I WAS SEVENTEEN
I HAD KNOWN NO FEAR
NO LONGER SEVENTEEN
GET IN LINE OR CLEAR
Track Name: Secret
I see you sitting all alone
suffering all that they have done
i know how hard it for you to bear
and you've seen the thorns that i will always wear
so take my hand and the sun will shine on you
the warmth you feel is the pain you have to lose

so don't you run-run-run, run so far far away
don't you run-run-run, run so far far from me

I see you crying in the dark
all alone, save but one thought
the world you made is breaking around you
there was no other life for you to choose
so take my hand and maybe you'll be free
do you think you can teach blind men to see

so don't you run-run-run, run so far far away
don't you run-run-run, run so far far from me
