Track Name: I Need To Breathe
one drink I tell you my story
you think I've never been lonely
you're scheming so unaware that
I need to breathe

I'm thinking wining and dining
you jump straight to multiplying
I'm lost in your underwear and
I need to breathe

need to breathe
need to breathe...

footsteps are my only warning
red socks are all I'm adorning
your children are starting to stare and
I need to breathe

outside it's raining and pouring
no ride I'm running 'til morning
at home I fall down the stairs 'cause
I need to breathe

need to breathe
need to breathe...

I told her the plan was camping
out all weekend being manly
I know she'll be caught unawares oh
I need to breathe

I open the door to our bedroom
there's a young man obviously nude
I've caught her having an affair
I need to breathe

need to breathe
need to breathe...
Track Name: All This Time
We hit the club
It's only just past 9 o'clock
one new message
and it says:

“Oh baby
where are you?
I miss you
please give me a call when you can”
(xoxo)

Pretty loud in here
figure I'll call in a minute
when we get out of here
one new message:

“Where are you?
Why haven't you called?
I bet you're with that other girl
Whatsa-name?”

After all this time
you think I'm in love with another girl
think it through my love
you should be sure
I love you more than the other girls
any other gir-ir-ir-ir-irl

The night races by
seconds, hours, countless minutes
and I'm mindful of the time
for I've got one new message:

“You thought when we talked that I'd be reassured
but where are you baby I need so much more
not her stealin' you”

After all this time
you think I'm in love with another girl
think it through my love
you should be sure
I love you more than the other girls
any other gir-ir-ir-ir-irl

It's past late when I get home
and she is sleeping
she's all alone
I wonder
can I prevent her
from waking up now
she's in a slumber?
I see her eyes open slightly, though
she can't see my shadow
or my reflection
go back to sleep dear
go back to sleep

Try sleepin' in
but my heart's just not in it
got an argument to win
there's one new message:

“Your heavy breathing woke me I went for a walk
I know you're gonna leave me for that dirty whore
so now I'm leaving you”

After all this time
you think I'm in love with another girl
think it through my love
you should be sure
I love you more than the other girls
any other gir-ir-ir-ir-irl
Track Name: Goodbye
waking up in a strange new world
venture out but it's still so early
haven't eaten food for days
stumble 'round and I'm in a haze

I look into the sky
look into the sky

you'll see me out across the ocean
fading in the evening light
I still look in your direction
wishing I had said goodbye
I ask myself why did I not tell you more?
Now I'm in hell since I walked out your door
it's over

figured out that I had to go
hope you know that I feel so lonely
saw your face it would end in tears
even now I still count the years

I look into the sky
look into the sky

you'll see me out across the ocean
fading in the evening light
I still look in your direction
wishing I had said goodbye
I ask myself why did I not tell you more?
Now I'm in hell since I walked out your door
it's over

you'll see me out across the ocean
fading in the evening light
I still look in your direction
wishing I had said goodbye
I ask myself why did I not tell you more?
Now I'm in hell since I walked out your door
it's over
Track Name: Eleanor
Eleanor
though time fades my mind
I will forever more
remember

oh Eleanor
I only called
because I needed more
we were together
remember
remember forever
forever-er-er-er-er-er

Eleanor
be cruel to be kind
I cannot leave through that door
a fine waste of time
this will just leave me raw
forever
we were together
remember forever
forever-er-er-er-er-er

(So) Eleanor
I was so blind
you left me there on the floor
don't you remember?

Now Eleanor
I wish I could rewind
you hurt me straight to the core
but now it's forever
and ever
remember forever
forever-er-er-er-er-er-er-er-er-er.....
