Track Name: Pieces on the Ground
I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
I'd tell you the truth, but I don't think that you'd believe me
I'm seeing you in my dreams
and I'm falling apart at the seams
To tell you the truth, it kinda hurts, but I like it

And I don't want to stop
walking down the road I'm on, no
I don't want to stop
and I don't want to see my heart in pieces...

In pieces on the ground, in pieces on the ground
In pieces on the ground, in pieces on the ground

I'm taking a chance on you
with everything I've been through
I think I'm in love, but I don't even really know you
Maybe you'll feel the same
Maybe you'll laugh in my face
Maybe you'll shake your head, you won't believe it

But I don't want to stop
walking down the road I'm on, no
I don't want to stop
and I don't want to see my heart in pieces...

In pieces on the ground, in pieces on the ground
In pieces on the ground, in pieces on the ground
Track Name: Can't Back Down
I know the reason that you're feeling this way
and I know everything that you've gone through
I know you're feeling like it won't go away
that the pain's here to stay, there's no hiding

I'd like to tell you you're wrong, but I can't
I'd like to say that it's easy, but it's not
There's only one thing that heals and that's time
and it takes forever to come and go

But you can't back down
you're caught in the middle and you
don't know how to get through all this sorrow
but you can't back down
there's always a tomorrow and it hurts less than today
No you can't back down
you're caught in the middle and you
don't know how to get through all this sorrow
but you can't back down
there's always a tomorrow and it's just one day away
You can never back down

The pain you're feeling will be less tomorrow
but it might be hard to notice
Just like the waves washing out the beach
it's a slow and steady process

You'd like your steps to be big, but they won't
You'd like to speed it along, but you can't
There's only one thing that heals and that's time
and it takes forever to come and go

But you can't back down
you're caught in the middle and you
don't know how to get through all this sorrow
but you can't back down
there's always a tomorrow and it hurts less than today
No you can't back down
you're caught in the middle and you
don't know how to get through all this sorrow
but you can't back down
there's always a tomorrow and it's just one day away
You can never back down
Track Name: For What It's Worth
I think I know you well enough
But now I wish that I was someone else
I hate to break it to you
But the talk that you heard is true
You said you wouldn't believe
But I saw it with my own two eyes
You can't go on like this
'Cause you know that it kills me to see you cry

It's a shame for what it's worth
You keep on crying but you're dragging it out
It's the truth and now you know
You shouldn't have any doubt

You'd like to think I'm lying
Because you've still got a lot to lose
I think you're not trying
To see relationships open to you
I'm not the only one
Who'd want to be with you night and day
But I'm impatient, girl,
And you know that it kills me to see you this way

It's a shame for what it's worth
You keep on crying but you're dragging it out
It's the truth and now you know
You shouldn't have any doubt

What has he done for you lately?
What has he done for you now,
You can't recall as single word he said
or a thing that he's done
to let you know he loves you
You're gonna run out of patience
You're gonna run out of time
You know he's lying every time that he leaves you
Waiting up for hours
'til you cry yourself to sleep

It's a shame for what it's worth
You keep on crying but you're dragging it out
It's the truth and now you know
You shouldn't have any doubt

It's a shame for what it's worth
You keep on crying but you're dragging it out
It's the truth and now you know
You shouldn't have any doubt

You shouldn't have any doubt
Track Name: The Answer
I only think about you 20 times a day or more,
You might say I can't believe the way that my luck has finally turned out
It's hard to believe that it's true
I always thought it might happen someday
The love that I feel for you is beyond a reasonable doubt

So if you ask me if I love you
The answer would be yes
And if you asked me if I need you
My darling I'd say yes
But if you asked if I'd spend the rest of my life
with nobody else but you
The answer, oh my darling
Would my love last forever?
The answer to that question would be yes

No doubt at all in my mind
No worries, it all feels totally new
I can't believe the things that I feel when I'm with you
It's just a matter of time
These feelings I have are incredibly strong
I've seen the future and it's easy to see where we both belong

So if you ask me if I love you
The answer would be yes
And if you asked me if I need you
My darling I'd say yes
But if you asked if I'd spend the rest of my life
with nobody else but you
The answer, oh my darling
Would my love last forever?
The answer to that question would be yes

And I know that if I asked you if you love me
The answer would be yes
And if I ask you if you need me
My darling you'd say yes
Someday I'm going to ask if you'll spend the rest of your life
With nobody else but me
The answer oh my darling...
Would you be mine forever?
I hope that when I ask you, you'll say yes
I hope that when I ask you, you'll say yes
Track Name: My Love For You
We brought you here with no regret or indecision
without hesitation, you were a miracle to me
And I know it's a big world and sometimes it's overwhelming
You haven't seen the half, half of what I've seen

And even though the walls might fall around you
And sometimes you're afraid that you might fail
And darkness clouds your sky though it's broad daylight
There's always a solution
'Cause there's always love around you

And I promise I will always be the one that you can count on
I'll never turn away, I'll never say goodbye
And I promise I will always be the one you can depend on
One thing I know for sure, there's nothing that could change my love for you

I know it must seem strange when you're so little
Everything around you towering above you
And I know one day you'll grow up and I fear that you won't need me
But just in case you do, I'll be there for you

And even though the walls might fall around you
And sometimes you're afraid that you might fail
And darkness clouds your sky though it's broad daylight
There's always a solution
'Cause there's always love around you

And I promise I will always be the one that you can count on
I'll never turn away, I'll never say goodbye
And I promise I will always be the one you can depend on
One thing I know for sure, there's nothing that could change my love for you
Track Name: Gonna Fall
I've seen a change in you, a different point of view
and an attitude that's long overdue
You're so meticulous, down to your new white dress
And I wonder who you're out to impress

It was long ago, but don't think that I don't know
that you still feel anger inside
So you locked up your heart and it's ripping you apart
and you're running out of places to hide

You're gonna fall
You're gonna take a fall, now
Though you thought you were above ever falling in love
Now you see you're not so safe at all,
You're gonna fall
You're gonna take a fall, now
I hope you learn to forget and I'd be willing to bet
It's a decision that you'll never regret,
You're gonna fall

So you've been hurt before, and I know that you swore
that you wouldn't open up any more
But now the impression you give isn't remotely negative,
though you still seem a little indecisive

It was long ago, but don't think that I don't know
that you still feel anger inside
So you locked up your heart and it's ripping you apart
and you're running out of places to hide

You're gonna fall
You're gonna take a fall, now
Though you thought you were above ever falling in love
Now you see you're not so safe at all,
You're gonna fall
You're gonna take a fall, now
I hope you learn to forget and I'd be willing to bet
It's a decision that you'll never regret,
You're gonna fall

You're gonna fall
You're gonna take a fall, now
Though you thought you were above ever falling in love
Now you see you're not so safe at all,
You're gonna fall
You're gonna take a fall, now
I hope you learn to forget and I'd be willing to bet
It's a decision that you'll never regret,
You're gonna fall
Track Name: The First Time
I heard that we were through
I heard it from your friends
I asked you if it's true
and you say it depends...
You say I put you down
and I don't give you space
I won't talk behind your back
I'll say it to your face

You want me to go away
I'll leave, well that's OK
I guess you don't care what you're losing
I'll take my heart away
I'll take my love away
I guess I don't care what I'm leaving
And it's the first time that we've agreed on anything
It's the first time we've agreed on anything

I guess I should have known
that we would never last
But there's no point in feeling
depressed about the past
There's only here and now
there is no yesterday
So don't ask me how I feel
You might not like what I'd say

You want me to go away
I'll leave, well that's OK
I guess you don't care what you're losing
I'll take my heart away
I'll take my love away
I guess I don't care what I'm leaving
And it's the first time that we've agreed on anything
It's the first time we've agreed on anything
It's the first time we've agreed on anything
It's the first time we've agreed on anything
Track Name: Heart Says To
I've been sitting here for hours
(and I've been talking to myself)
and every time I look at the phone
I will it to ring, but it just don't work
I've been trying to think of reasons
trying to convince myself to call you on the phone
dial in your number and tell you just how I feel
so you'd really know

If it's all the same to you
No matter what you do
My feelings for you, love, are true
I love you 'cause my heart says to
And that should be enough
It shouldn't be too tough
For you to feel the same way too
And love me 'cause your heart says to

It's a no-win situation
Sitting here hoping that you'd call
You know I'd like to do the right thing...
I wish I knew what the right thing was
Now I'm filled with hesitation
Where there should be no doubt at all
I really need to talk to you, but I'm not too sure if you're feeling
the same way too

If it's all the same to you
No matter what you do
My feelings for you, love, are true
I love you 'cause my heart says to
And that should be enough
It shouldn't be too tough
For you to feel the same way too
And love me 'cause your heart says to

If it's all the same to you
No matter what you do
My feelings for you, love, are true
I love you 'cause my heart says to
And that should be enough
It shouldn't be too tough
For you to feel the same way too
And love me 'cause your heart says to
Track Name: I'll Know
Somethings wrong in my world
Something's different but I don't know what it is
Got to figure it out
Take some time out and assess this situation

'Cause i take it all for granted
when i'm staring at your picture
the love i see in your eyes won't change

And nothing else matters to me
darling nothing else matters to me

So kiss me and i'll know
you're still in love with me
I'll take you in my arms
and you make me believe
I could never face
another lonely night
Kiss me and i'll know
that everything's alright

It's the look that you show
makes me wonder if i've been wrong all this time
Gotta figure it out
I need to know if there's a reason for this feeling

And I'm starting to believe that,
when we're lying in the bedroom,
the love i see in your eyes has changed

And nothing else matters to me
Darling nothing else matters to me

So kiss me and i'll know
you're still in love with me
I'll take you in my arms
and you make me believe
I could never face
another lonely night
Kiss me and i'll know
that everything's alright
Track Name: Gotta Have Love
Seems like lately, all that I do
Is spend my time, thinking about you
It wasn't luck that got us this far
Oh, but I know how lucky we are
So many candles just don't last
They burn so hot, but they burn so fast

Cause they don't have love
Something they need to share
They'll reach inside themselves and hope
that they might find it there
You gotta have love
Something you need to share
You reach inside yourself and find
that it always will be there
You gotta have love

Seems like lately, all that I do
Is spend my time, waiting
Waiting for endless days to be through
Waiting to spend some time with you
The rest of my life will come and go
But one thing is certain, one thing I know

I'll always have love
Something I know we share
We'll reach inside ourselves and find
that it always will be there
You gotta have love
Something you need to share
You reach inside yourself and find
that it always will be there
You gotta have love

The rest of my life will come and go
But one thing is certain, one thing I know

I'll always have love
Something I know we share
We'll reach inside ourselves and find
that it always will be there
You gotta have love
Something I know we share
We'll reach inside ourselves and know
that it always will be there
You gotta have love
Track Name: Still In Love
Every day brings subtle changes
Every day I'm closer than before
I believe that I can make it alone
But every night it's a different story
Waiting up 'til 2 or 3, you know...
Every time the phone rings, it's never you

So if you really want to know
I still think about you when it's late at night
If you really want to know
I still think about you when I go to sleep
If you really want to know
I still dream about you and I wake up crying
If you really want to know
I'm still in love with you

I remember lying with you
Just the feeling, knowing you were there
I would give my soul to hold you again
But I know it'll never happen
Though I think I'm planning on the worst
I believe you're never gonna come home

So if you really want to know
I still think about you when it's late at night
If you really want to know
I still think about you when I go to sleep
If you really want to know
I still dream about you and I wake up crying
If you really want to know
I'm still in love with you
Track Name: You Changed My Mind
The first time that we met
Seems like so long ago
It didn't take me long
I know I can't be wrong

Oh I'd convinced myself that I'd love no one else
'Cause I just didn't feel like trying no more
I'd given up then
I'd given up then but you changed my mind again

I know you don't believe
But time could change your mind
Eventually you'll see
Maybe feel the same as me

Oh I'd convinced myself that I'd love no one else
'Cause I just didn't feel like trying no more
I'd given up then
I'd given up then but you changed my mind again

And if you need to think this through, you know it's alright
I've got time to spare
And if you have some doubts about the way I feel, well,
Darling I don't care
'Cause I could wait a thousand years until your fears have
finally disappeared
And I won't change my mind because real love is so hard to find
And I know what I'm feeling

Oh I'd convinced myself that I'd love no one else
'Cause I just didn't feel like trying no more
I'd given up then
I'd given up then but you changed my mind again
