Oh! What? Huh? Yeah! I got a blind date with a lady Never met her, might be crazy Put a shirt on, can't look lazy And I'm ready to go Got no money in my pocket Even less in my wallet But with my credit card and confidence I'm positive I got this I had some beers I'm feeling awesome as shit I'm like a maverick in a target rich environment Then I see you And while I'm not exactly prone to try and get the girls alone You are in my danger zone 'Cause you don't know how beautiful you are And I don't know what to do I got you You're right within my sights Trapped in the headlights I'm coming at you like a fucking laser beam (I got you) You're making me second guess the way that I dressed I just didn't think I'd fall in love (I got you) You're looking so fine that it's a crime I'll do my time and I won't be complaining (I got you) You're unsuspecting, I won't be letting you be forgetting My skills so smooth But now I gotta make the first move I gotta make the first move The night is ending Better stop pretending She asks me upstairs I know she's ready to play But my knees are weak, palms are sweaty Balls are dropping like confetti Taking too long to get ready And she's turning away I swear I'm usually smooth But something ruined my groove I know I got nothing to prove But girl you got no flaws I swoop in for the kiss But I misjudge and I miss It wasn't meant to be like this Oh shit balls Going home alone It ain't so bad, but I'm sad that it's not with her Going home alone I get less love than Kevin McCallister I got you You're right within my sights Trapped in the headlights I'm coming at you like a mother fucking laser beam (I got you) You're making me second guess the way that I dressed I just didn't think I'd fall in love (I got you) You're looking so fine that it's a crime I'll do my time and I won't be complaining (I got you) You're unsuspecting, I won't be letting you be forgetting My skills so smooth But now I gotta make the first move I got you You're right within my sights Trapped in the headlights I'm coming at you like a fucking laser beam (I got you) You're making me second guess the way that I dressed I just didn't think I'd fall in love (I got you) You're looking so fine that it's a crime I'll do my time and I won't be complaining (I got you) You're unsuspecting, I won't be letting you be forgetting My skills so smooth But now I gotta make the first move

London 04:07
They say that home is where you make it And I think I would agree Where you can spill drinks on the carpet And yell at the TV But sometimes home is somewhere different Than where you're wanting it to be Sometimes its an anchor And it's pulling back on me To feel the ocean wind blowing From the harbor to my face Get a milkshake from Sweet Mother's Or another happy place Maybe I'm looking for the answer Maybe I already know Maybe I'm just running But I still have to go Oh, I still have to go But I'm lucky to have friends In so many different places I'm lucky to have seen All that I have seen And I'm lucky for my heart To be torn apart by seas And I'm lucky to have called London home I'm lucky to have called London home I'm lucky to have called London home I watch the lights along the river When I'm walking home at night No matter what I'm feeling It makes it alright I'm trying hard to deliver What I was put here to do But sometimes I'm a child And I'm lost just like you Oh, I'm lost just like you But I'm lucky to have friends In so many different places I'm lucky to have seen All that I have seen And I'm lucky for my heart To be torn apart by seas And I'm lucky to have called London home I'm lucky to have called London home I'm lucky to have called London home But I'm lucky to have friends In so many different places I'm lucky to have seen All that I have seen And I'm lucky for my heart To be torn apart by seas And I'm lucky to have called London home I'm lucky to have called London home I'm lucky to have called London home

Sometimes I get a little crazy With all these things running through my mind Sometimes it gets a little hazy Thinking 'bout the ones that I left behind But life is too sweet To pass by someone as sweet as you And life is too perfect So I guess I better follow through I could be the one for you You could be the one for me I think that I'm the one for you And I think that you're the one for me Sometimes I get a little nervous 'Cause you're as cool as the midnight sea But those eyes let me know that it's all worth it 'Cause you're so beautiful to me You shine bright Like a diamond in the rough And it feels so right 'Cause I like shiny things I could be the one for you You could be the one for me I think that I'm the one for you And I think that you're the one for me I could be the one for you You could be the one for me I think that I'm the one for you And I think that you're the one for me I like things that you like So we should hold hands if it feels right You like things that I like So we should hold hands I like things that you like So we should hold hands if it feels right You like things that I like So we should hold hands I could be the one for you You could be the one for me I think that I'm the one for you And I think that you're the one for me I could be the one for you You could be the one for me I think that I'm the one for you And I think that you're the one for me

My Princess 03:56
Fear is all it takes To stop the light coming in Seeing it all end Before the first step begins You can't change fate You can't change time But you can try to change your mind If you could see what I can see Then you would fall at your own feet My Princess, my love The world can't tell you enough That you are strong And you belong right here My Princess, my love Even if it came from above You wouldn't know how much you light up this world You don't know how much you light up the world I don't always have The words to say But I'll keep on trying anyway So if I stutter or fuck it up Or if I'm gone, or too drunk I wrote this song To maybe help you along My Princess, my love The world can't tell you enough That you are strong And you belong right here My Princess, my love Even if it came from above You wouldn't know how much you light up this world You don't know how much you light up the world But I'll try anyway By loving you each day And singing what I can To help you understand That your heart is so beautiful Your heart is so beautiful Your heart is so beautiful Your heart My Princess, my love The world can't tell you enough That you are strong And you belong right here My Princess, my love Even if it came from above You wouldn't know how much you light up this world You don't know how much you light up the world

My little lady Why you standing there so far away? I guess it's okay If you wanna be alone But baby You got the look that took my breath away So while it's okay You should try being alone with me The night is young And I'm beginning to think that me and you Could make it through Rounds one to three If you'll let me be good to you Let me be good to you Never before have I seen anyone so beautiful And I know just what I wanna do Never before have I seen anyone so beautiful And I wanna do boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, just can't get enough) Boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, I just can't) Boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, just can't get enough) Boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough) I wanna go dancing Try to keep the groove But oh my heart just beats too fast Plus the shots we had slowed time To make this moment last I wanna hold your hand And wrap my arms around you 'Til the morning light Keep holding you so tight Until the day turns night Because it just feels right Never before have I seen anyone so beautiful And I know just what I wanna do Never before have I seen anyone so beautiful And I wanna do boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, just can't get enough) Boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, I just can't) Boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, just can't get enough) Boy/girl stuff with you (Just can't get enough, I just can't)

Knowing Love 04:44
I felt you From across the world And all I knew was love In my heart I saw a girl And all I knew was love So pure and giving A dream across the sea So pure and giving Enough to bring this man To his knees Our souls can dance To play this game But who we are Won't stay the same And it's hard for me to say But I know it's true That I'll be a better man For knowing you Yes, I'll be a better man For knowing you Our hands can touch Held by fate And all that's left is love Through the fear Through the pain All that's left is love So strong and giving Holding space for truth to grow We're here and living Breathing in Letting go And our souls can dance To play this game But who we are Won't stay the same And it's hard for me to say But I know it's true That I'll be a better man For knowing you Yes, I'll be a better man For knowing you Knowing you Knowing love Knowing love And our souls can dance To play this game But who we are Won't stay the same And it's hard for me to say But I know it's true That I'll be a better man For knowing you Yes, I'll be a better man Oh, I'll be a better man Oh, I'll be a better man

When did we become so jaded? And how do we live our lives Through dreams and smiles so faded? Too afraid to look inside When did it become okay To never say you're not? And why do we look away From all the good we've got? I believe that we don't need to hurt as much as we do And if you breathe If you give more than you take We'll make it through And all is well tonight I know it in my soul That we are made of light And we're already home We're already home Well it's hard to believe The things I've seen So I try to hold on and breathe I am doing my best to succeed I believe that love will see us through I believe that love will see us through Can we open our minds To the truth? Can you see that you are me And I am you? If we live through our hearts Feel it move I believe that love will see us through I believe that love will see us through And all is well tonight I know it in my soul That we are made of light And we're already home We're already home We're already home And all is well tonight I know it in my soul That we are made of light And we're already home We're already home We are made of light

Die Fighting 05:53
I'm staring down a line On the mirror But I can't tell who I can see Two bottles of wine Don't make it clearer Because he looks a bit like me I used to think That I was stronger To take this life on my own But then the nights Got longer Now I'm calling out for home When the lights are off And the distractions are gone I know I'll feel it all tonight But I know it'll all be alright 'Cause when I die I'm gonna die fighting 'Cause I don't wanna leave this world behind Oh, I know It's worth all the trying 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine Sometimes it's dark In the morning I lie awake and cry Sometimes the days get brighter But sometimes that's a lie When the lights are off And the distractions are gone I know I'll feel it all tonight But I know it'll all be alright 'Cause when I die I'm gonna die fighting 'Cause I don't wanna leave this world behind Oh, I know It's worth all the trying 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine That love is mine When I die I'm gonna die fighting 'Cause I don't wanna leave this world behind Oh, I know It's worth all the trying 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine 'Cause there is a love And that love is mine

When the stars in your eyes Tell you where you need to go And the sun seems to shine Ahead of time, only after you grow When the space you occupy Is filled with why's and TV shows Even stars can be lies Just hidden by what you think you know So come back to me Just come back to me Come back to me Come back to me Breathing hard, disregard for everything And all you're seeing Searching far, lost in scars Trusting everything but being Playing games, calling names, chasing fame Where are you now? Spending time, losing time We'll get there somehow If you come back to me So just come back to me Come back to me Come back to me Come back to me Come back to me Drifting in and out of sleep Never too deep, never again And in that sleep you follow sheep All the way down Instead of counting them So stay awake and take each day As if it's made for you somehow You'll find your way if you stay Right here and now So just come back to me Just come back to me Come back to me Come back to me
