Track Name: Whisper
Look at me, am I diseased?
Look at my face, is it riddled with hate?
I know that we're different, could we ever be the same?
and if I did contrive that would you whisper my name

Would you whisper, would you whisper my name

Do we all end up in a paradise far away?
Or do we fall headfirst into darkness with no memory?

Would you whisper, would you whisper my name

Are we living, or is this a figment?
Will I accept it, or will I not know I existed?

Would you whisper, would you whisper my name
Track Name: Faking It
There she goes walking out the door
I said don't forget the thing that you forgot before
She said, how could I ever leave? Ever leave?

At least that's the dream I've been having
When I close my eyes, it's all I can see

I want, I want you oh so bad
Wish I could say that with all the confidence I have
But the problem is, I've been faking it

Without your hand
Without your kiss
I live for you moments like this
She said, I don't know what to believe, just don't leave

At least that's the dream I've been having
When I close my eyes, it's all I can see

I want, I want you oh so bad
Wish I could say that with all the confidence I have
But the problem is, I've been faking it

Should dreams mean anything?
Can we ever dream honestly?
Track Name: You Are All I Want
I could not lie this time for the thousandth line I've given you
And I still see your face when I close my eyes
I lose my strength thinking about all that I could have done for you

I'll tell the truth, you're all I'll ever want
That is you, now never forget
You're all I want
You're all I want and now I have my regret

For the thousandth time
For the thousandth lie
I'll never leave these thoughts alone
And now I'll tell myself I want somebody else but we both know I can't forget you

You're all I want

But I worked my mind, found some hidden rind of confidence
Told you I wanted you, you said you did too, but this will never end

You're all I want
And now I see the horizon beyond your face
Beyond your face
Track Name: You Don't
You hide your fears in the bottom of a bottle
And look to me like I'm some upstanding model
But I'm not the picture you've painted in your head
And we'd both agree these thoughts are better left unsaid

I try, I try try, I try try.
You don't, you don't don't, you don't don't

When I speak it seems you don't really listen
And all my words fall under your clause of self-omission
Because you're always right, you hear no one's position
You do what you want, and of your own volition

I try, I try try, I try try.
You don't, you don't don't, you don't don't

You were never there for me, but still I tried
Track Name: Timing
I know timing's everything
You won't wear my diamond ring

Woke up that morning with you by side
I could have stayed in that moment, but you asked me for a ride

I know timing's everything
You won't wear my diamond ring

You left your change in my car and I'm afraid to take it out
'Cause when I put it in my jar, I'll know there's nothing more to be upset about

When you feel something you've got to run
Why can't it be to me?

I know timing's everything
You won't wear my diamond ring
