Track Name: Pathetic, Sad & Inadequate
I can't forget you.
Although I try, I try, I try,
I'd do anything to lose this longing for you.

I can't get over you.
I just cry. I cry. I cry
'cause I don't think that I'll do any better than you.

Pathetic and sad --
I'm a grown man
Devastated by love again.

Inadequate --
That's what I am,
Ruining all I start in the end.

I know it's time to say
Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye.
But I can't face the loneliness I'll have without you
Track Name: Let Me Just Love You
Don't shut me out.
Don't hang up the phone.
Do you really want to spend another night being alone?

I know it feels too soon.
I know you want your space,
But don't let what we have just go to waste.

I know that you've been toyed with,
And you'd just as soon avoid the matters of the heart.
But don't you think it's time now to finally let your guard down
And let me just love you?

Can't hide from the truth.
You know that this is right.
So let go of this need to keep holding on tight.

I'm right here.
And I'm not going anywhere.
This heartache that you feel is something we can both repair.

I know that you've been toyed with,
And you'd just as soon avoid the matters of the heart.
But don't you think it's time now to finally let your guard down
And let me just love you?

I know that you've been toyed with,
And you'd just as soon avoid the matters of the heart.
But don't you think it's time now to finally let your guard down
And let me just love you?
Track Name: Troubled Girl
I should have stayed away,
Stayed away from you
'cause you are a troubled girl.
A troubled girl, that's you.

Sister says you're bad for me.
Mama says so, too.
They say that my misery
Is all because of you.

I should have stayed away,
Stayed away from you
'cause you are a troubled girl.
A troubled girl, that's you.

At first, it was exciting,
But now it's terrifying.
I know I can't help.
I can only save myself.

At first, it was exciting,
But now it's terrifying.
I know I can't help.
I can only save myself.

When all my friends said you were "damaged goods,"
I thought they were cruel.
But clearly, they were protecting me
From the likes of you.

I should have stayed away,
Stayed away from you
'cause you are a troubled girl.
A troubled girl, that's you.
A troubled girl, that's you.
A troubled girl, that's you.
Track Name: The Greatest Lie Ever Told
Yes I said them:
Those three words you wanted to hear.
'cause I thought it'd make you happy,
And even though it did,
Now I must admit

That the greatest lie ever told was the one I told you.
The greatest lie ever told was the one that I told you.

When you knew I didn't mean it,
You saw right through me.
You said you had enough.
Now that you have vanished,
I realize my lie
Was the truth this whole time.

The greatest lie ever told ended up being true.
The greatest lie ever told ended up being true.

The greatest lie ever told was the one that I told you.
The greatest lie ever told was the one that I told you.
The greatest lie ever told was the one that I told you.
The greatest lie ever told ended up being true.
Track Name: The Lesson
In all the books, whose pages I have turned,
For all the lessons that I have learned.
The thing that I have been missing
Is this most important lesson.

And there's no shortcut.
There's no quick fix.
There's no mistaking, 'cause you can't fake it.
I have to learn how to forget you, so that my heart can stop breaking.
I have to learn how to forget you, so that my heart can stop breaking.

I've put this off for long enough.
Nothing to gain from more delaying.
I have to spend some time each and every day
Putting memories of you away.

And there's no shortcut.
There's no quick fix.
There's no mistaking, 'cause you can't fake it.
I have to learn how to forget you, so that my heart can stop breaking.
I have to learn how to forget you, so that my heart can stop breaking.
I have to learn how to forget you, so that my heart can stop breaking.
Track Name: I Actually Feel Pretty Good Today
I actually feel pretty good today,
And there is nothing you can say
To ruin this new attitude.

Even though you just let me go
Less than one day ago
Now I see.

That I'm free again to go on with my life.
Now I can do what I really want to do.

I don't think you could understand
How I am fine with your change of plans.

It's time to go and have some fun.
Skip work and soak up the sun.
Spend all day outside.

Or maybe I'll see a movie.
Something you'd never want to see:
Soul Plane.

'cause I'm free again to go on with my life.
Now I can do what I really want to do.

I am me again and I have taken back my life.
Now I will do what I really want to do.

I actually feel pretty good today.
Track Name: Shoulder the Pain
Pull yourself together.
You're letting yourself go.
Is this the way it has to be?
All suffering and sorrow.

I know that you've been hurting,
So what? She had to go.
Now is the time to get her off your mind.
It's time to take control.

All art is, is just stealing.
All love is, is just dealing.
And heartbreak's always waiting 'round the corner.

So what are you to do?
So what are you to do?
Just shoulder the pain.
Just shoulder the pain.

Don't lose yourself in things that you'll regret.
Don't dwell in yesterday.
Free advice is worth the price you pay.
So listen when I say.

All art is, is just stealing.
All love is, is just dealing.
And heartbreak's always waiting 'round the corner.

So what are you to do?
So what are you to do?
Just shoulder the pain.
Just shoulder the pain.

Just shoulder the pain.
Just shoulder the pain.
Track Name: Nobody Cries Drinking Tequila
I know a thing about being sad.
I've filled albums with nothing but that.
But take my advice for what it's worth.
Don't ruin your life over this girl.

Come on, man.
Keep it together.
You probably don't care about whether
You embarrass yourself, but what about me?
Somebody's got to look out for our dignity.

I know. I know. I totally hear ya.
You're broken up over Sheila.
So why would you order a frozen margarita?
Nobody cries drinking tequila.

What about whiskey? A scotch? Or a beer?
Now those are drinks that pair well with tears.
But a twisty straw and a little umbrella
Don't work at all.
I just have to tell ya.

I don't care that you say that you hate it
When I say it makes you emasculated.
It's not right. I tell you it's wrong.
Just listen to the words of this song.

I know. I know. I totally hear ya.
You're broken up over Sheila.
So why would you order a frozen margarita?
Nobody cries drinking tequila.

I know. I know. I totally hear ya.
You're broken up over Sheila.
So why would you order a frozen margarita?
Nobody cries drinking tequila.
Track Name: Once More
I still love you, and I always will.
Would you reconsider another try?

You've loved me before.
You can once more.

You were the first that I ever loved.
I don't think I ever. No I never stopped.

You've loved me before.
You can once more.

You've loved me before.
You can once more.

Now that it's out there, what do you say?

You've loved me before.
You've loved me before.
You've loved me before.
You can once more.
Track Name: The Party
I honestly don't remember forgetting about tonight.
All I can really say is that it just slipped my mind.
But let me try. Let me try to make things right.
Let's head over to the party.

I love you more than anything else in the world.
But do I love all your friends? Well, I'm not so sure.
Honestly, I'm begging you please. Don't get so angry with me.
I promise I'll have fun at the party.

Will Jenny and Tony bring their macaroni salad?
I promise I'll tell Linda that she looks thinner.
I'll say it with a smile.

Will Peggy and Ben bring deviled eggs again, like they always?
Won't even bring up Larry when I talk to Mary,
Or Sarah when I talk to Frank.

I can have fun with just about anyone, you know I can.
But I never have any fun with your cousin, Stan.
When he talks to me, it's inappropriate and obscene.
Will Stan be there tonight at the party?

I confess while you were getting dressed I did nothing.
Do we have some time to buy some wine?
Or pick up a dessert?

You've told me time and time again, and I know you are tired
Of telling me there's only one thing that you require:
Is for me to not make a scene being sarcastic and mean.
I'll behave myself at the party.

I can't wait to go to the party.

When can we come home from the party?
Track Name: You & Me
I don't need anything else.
I'm just happy here with you,
Warm under the sun.
This is so much fun.

You just tell me what you'd like.
I'll do everything I can
To make your dreams come true.
That's what I'll do for you.

Now that we've found each other and fallen in love,
We can stop worrying and do all the things we want.
Now that the search is over, let's start enjoying our lives,
And focus our energy on you and me.

We. We've got it all figured out.
The secret to this happiness
Is appreciating
All those little things.

Now that we've found each other and fallen in love,
We can stop worrying and do all the things we want.
Now that the search is over, let's start enjoying our lives,
And focus our energy on you and me.

Now that we've found each other and fallen in love,
We can stop worrying and do all the things we want.
Now that the search is over, let's start enjoying our lives,
And focus our energy on you and me.
Track Name: Next In Line
I just met my replacement.
He seems like a good guy.
Hopefully he will meet all your criteria.

He's not too tall and slightly liberal
With no crooked teeth.
If you want me to be honest,
he seems a lot like me.

But I wonder if he's going to give you all you want.
Or is the time for your try the guy next in line.

No one exists who can satisfy your list.
But you insist. You insist.

But I wonder if he's going to give you all you want.
Or is the time for your try the guy next in line.

Certainly we had our happy times
Traveling the world.
Surfing Santa Barbara.
Alhambra in Granada.

I thought we were doing just fine.
Weren't we having a good time?
But you had your plans and I didn't understand
That I didn't reach your goal line.

But I wonder how I didn't give you all you want.
It was just the time for your try the guy next in line.

But I wonder how I didn't give you all you want.
It was just the time for your try the guy next in line.

It was just the time for your try the guy next in line.
