Track Name: remain
is this all that remains?
i didn't mean to intrude
you should know my worship
now you know i'm weak

this is all i can say
hands on my back, i'm sick inside
she's on the other side
the kisses, caresses and all i want is you to see

it's so much more to me
so much more, lying on your floor
and i'm right beside you
she's in your arms, she's so much more

well i don't believe in love
this is why i don't believe in you

left me in your shelter
always second rate, second place
even when you held on so tight
your hands still strayed
they stayed entwined
and why can't you just say no?

let it out to you and this is how you just take what's there
what can you do?
let me say it, then forget it
you'll just take what's left
didn't know i had this heart 'til it lay at your feet

oh you want to help? yeah, i can tell

cuz your arms are tight around her
lips are locked forever
and you're saying that you love me
you were saying that i'm so much more
then why do you sleep like children?
your arms are tight around her

i'll get high to believe in love
Track Name: porcelain blue
holding onto porcelain, looking into ice
and it's only moments 'til you're gone, days later saying 'no'
saying 'look at me,' i look into the fire
but your eyes are blue and cold
your fingers are on my shoulders and i still taste your lips on mine

i can be anything you need
give me something
after all i've done
and all i could do

one more night, set me free one more time
i want to wake up to the dawn in your arms
don't you want me anymore?
am i so different from all your other whores?

just want you to break my heart
don't tell me that we could be, but you can't, cuz you relate so differently
don't tell me that you love me like that
you know i need it so bad
like these feelings would only hurt me
but can't you see that i'm still wanting?

he asks, 'do you want me forever? i'm not your quick fix, i'm your long term solution. i can only fall for days and you're worth so much more.'

well if i'm worth so much more
why am i shut down and you are walking out that door?
Track Name: funkipede
now the secret's out- not everything
not the hours in bed, on couches, in parks
just feeling right
everyone wants one last time
and he kisses my cheek

i drink from the bottle to ignore the rush he gives
like the more subdued glow that i feel from you
'he'll never hurt you,' he says and i just nod
'he's not like you.'

i lean back, guitar in hand
balancing pick and whiskey in the other
everyone will break me in the end anyway
so i can sing of the pain next to him

he holds on one moment longer
but i can let go, i can leave without his love
whispering 'anytime,' but the words she said inside my head
i'll go home, sleeping single
maybe i'll dream of him, more likely of you
