Track Name: Won't Be With You
Fallin’ fast down a country road, in the middle of the night,
and you’re way too stoned to be doing this, but I won’t be with you
You and your pack of bitchin’ wolves, stare snarling at me,
as they back into a hundred-foot hole, but they don’t scare me

Oh no, I won’t
Oh no, I won’t
Oh no, I won’t be with you babe

Are you scared of waking up? Maybe terrified by this thing that you’ve become? I wish that I was sorry
But it’s hard to be; to watch your star burn out and fall so bitterly
But I won’t be with you, no

Oh no, I won’t
Oh no, I won’t
Oh no, I won’t be with you babe

I had such high hopes for you,
but you must have misheard me
You went and lost your mind from all the things you do,
you don’t know how much that hurt me

Oh no, I won’t
Oh no, I won’t
Oh no, I won’t be with you babe
Track Name: Little Town
Every winters getting worse
This one’s no better than our first
I don’t remember how your voice sounds

You said that you were gonna leave this place
And I believe that you will someday
Lights are growing dark, on this little town

Oh, this little town
Oh, this little town
Oh, never made it out
Oh, of this little town

Drops of sadness fall from your eyes
Roll down the window as I’m driving by
I could look in the mirror, but there’s nothing behind

Oh, this little town
Oh, this little town
Oh, never made it out
Oh, of this little town

You never knew me, you never did
We walked these streets when we were kids
You never knew me, you never did
We knew these streets when we were kids
(I felt that thunder on your lips)

Oh, this little town
Oh, this little town
Oh, never made it out
Oh, of this little town
Track Name: Dutchie
Dutchie forever, what have you seen?
Lovely forever, have you seen me?
Seen me in your dreams, in your head when we’re apart
Lovely Dutchie lady, maybe now we can start?

Diva darling, I hope that you know
I’ve been thinking bout us lately, for a year or so
Since fate turn round and smiled, Côte d'Azur for a couple miles
In that church on Easter day, babe by then I was praying

Dutchie forever, your feathers of gold
Lovely forever, forever I’d hold
Hold you and your spirit close, what I’ve always needed most
Was just Dutchie forever, forever you know

In these moments of memory, some I try to preserve
Like the moment you met me, which I’ve never deserved
But I’ve learned to love the lows, every night I’ve done alone
Every thought I’d soon replace, with that smile on your face

Dutchie forever, your feathers of gold
Lovely forever, forever I’d hold
Hold you and your spirit close, what I’ve always needed most
Was just Dutchie forever, forever you know
Track Name: Fool's Game
Dreaming in a place that doesn’t sleep
I only wish your company to keep
But am i wrong to think of you?
Though I cover up my mind, I know I’m on yours too

I cut my age in half and there we stood
Like nothing else could ever be so good
Everything you see is yours to take
So do this for yourself and learn to love mistakes

Lay your flowers bare on my skin
Just let me in, and I’ll let you in
Look at me and then it begins

Every time you turn away from me
I know its your defensibility
So why are we still standing in the storm?
Would you tell me if I’m worth the fighting for

Winter mornings walking in the dark
A lonely search to find some missing part
And with each and every drop of blood I drew
From each and every heart, I stained my dress for you

So lay your flowers bare on my skin,
Just let me in, and I’ll let you in
Look at me and then it begins

So now the only way I go is through
Just like fighting lovers seem to do
The wild in our hearts cannot be tamed
Love likes to be its own and not a fool’s game
Love likes to be its own and not a fool’s game
Love likes to be its own and not a fool’s game
