Track Name: Wash Your Mouth Out
Settled all my fights from the past
Everything I knew wouldn’t last
Settled all my strife with a knife and a gun
A murderer is what I’ve become

Somebody better wash my mouth out
Somebody better wash it out

Knew a girl I thought was a friend
(I thought I knew ya but that ain’t true nah)
Everything she’s done, oh she’d defend
(You think you weren’t heard, I’ve got the last word)
She talked all this shit just to try and bring me down, HEY!
But all she’s left with is a dirty mouth
(I thought I knew ya but that ain’t true nah)

Somebody better wash her mouth out
Oh somebody better wash it out

He lured her in with charm
Made her keep her mouth shut
Pulled out all the stops
Such a little show- off
Thinking I don’t know
Play me for a fool
Blinding all your friends
But the only fool is you
The fool is you

Somebody better wash his mouth out
Somebody better wash it out
Somebody better wash his mouth out
Somebody better wash it out
(You think you weren’t heard I’ve got the last word)
Somebody better, somebody better
Somebody better wash his mouth out
Somebody better wash it out
Track Name: The Underdog
I’ve always run with the underdog
I never pose as a threat
You never thought there would come a day
That you would always regret

You’re like a bump in the night
Your bark is worse than your bite
Can try with all of your might but you’re not quite there
I more resemble a shark
My bite is worse than my bark
Ready set go on your mark so you best beware

You think you can say whatever you want to
Whenever you want to and get away
You think you can say whatever you want to
Whenever you want to and get away

I’ve always been unpredictable
Sometimes I wear a disguise
But don’t go write your acceptance speech no
I’ve got my eye on the prize

You’re like a bump in the night
Your bark is worse than your bite
Can try with all of your might but you’re not quite there
I more resemble a shark
My bite is worse than my bark
Ready set go on your mark so you best beware

You think you can say whatever you want to
Whenever you want to and get away
You think you can say whatever you want to
Whenever you want to and get away

Run your mouth a million miles go ahead
No one hears you when you whine no way
Track Name: Ribbons and Bows
I want a house with lots of acres
I want a place with lovely neighbors
I want a car that doesn't do the world harm
Yeah, I want a life that's long and crazy
I want a love that won't say maybe
I want friends who always come to my defense
Hear me now, hear me loud

If you're not sure I'm what you want
then get outta my sight
if you're not sure I'm what you like
Then don't hold me so tight
cuz I know what I want, and I know what I like
and it could be you

There's no use in me being harsh and vulgar
Cuz you've already wasted one night on her
and I don't got them time to worry about what's all behind
Hear me now, Hear me loud

If you're gunna give me away
You better wrap me up with a bow
Cuz I don't wanna stand in your way
Of you putting on your show
Track Name: I Want The Radio Up
Woke up on your floor in Brooklyn
Opened up my eyes and took in
Light flooding through the curtains
Oh my head is hurting
Stumbled out to streets of concrete
Thought if I was quick I could be
Out of sight and out of mind
Gotta leave the night behind

I want the radio up I want the world turned down
I want my glass half full I want it all worked out
When my heart is breaking, and my mind is racing
I want the radio up I want the world turned down

I could hide alone at my place
Disappear into the subway
But that won’t get me nothing
That I’m really wanting
My heart can get a bit lazy
Lines can get a bit hazy
You try to call me baby
But it’s black or white not maybe

There I said it nobody wants to be the one to blame
Just forget it, I’ll put my best foot forward and I’m on the run again
Track Name: Where We Started
Tell me you need it
Tell me you mean it
Tell me you want my heart make me believe it
Just open your blue eyes
Let me look inside
So I can see everything that you think you can still hide

Take all of my heart and hold it
the only way to love is to show it
Hold me so that I can know just where we both started from
Boy you know we're far from perfect
Every little fight is worth it
We can take the bad and turn it where we both started from

Back when we first met
How could I forget
I could've jumped right in but it wasn't time yet
So we took it real slow
Letting the love grow
and when that day did come I knew I had found home

And people think we're meant for each other
but it doesn't matter we already know
and we don't need the confirmation just to love one another or say it's forever
We already know and it's enough for us cause when you know you know
Track Name: Sugar And Spice
Come on sugar and kiss me
You’ve been gone all day did you miss me
Let me pour you a stiff drink and you can put up your feet
Oh baby I know you work hard
To pay for things that I found on your credit card
That new dress at the boutique
But it wasn’t for me

You told me a lie
We’re just wasted time

How’s this for a pretty little good girl
Good girl well I’m not good anymore
Take this from a pretty little good girl
Good girl well I’m not good anymore
Your sugar your sugar and spice
She ain’t always ain’t always nice
Take this from a pretty little good girl
Good girl well I’m not good anymore

I’ve got my own little secret
I take all your cash and I keep it
Tucked away in a suitcase
And now I’m leaving I’m leaving I’m leaving yeah!

You told me a lie
We’re just wasted time

You thought you could get away
With all of the things you say
To cover up all you’ve done
But I’ve only just begun
Cause I got it out for you
And baby it’s over due
So don’t bother kissing up
I’ve already had enough
Track Name: Spin
Like my heartbeat should be racing
When the pace is moving too slow
Like two shoes tied at the laces
When there’re places that I need to go

Don’t you know that I’ve been waiting
Don’t you know that I’ve been patient too
Like a train stuck at a station waiting and eager to move

Oh boy you spin me around
I can’t keep my feet on the ground
Oh boy you’re hurting my heart
I don’t know where to stop I don’t know where to start

Like when we danced in the kitchen
And we were itching to go to your room
Like when we first started kissing
And we were thinking it started too soon

Don’t you know that I’ve been simple
Don’t you know that it’s true what I’ve said
Like when we slept in the middle squished together with four in the bed

Oh boy you spin me around, I can’t
I can’t keep my feet on the ground
Oh boy, you know you’re hurting my heart
I don’t know where to stop I don’t know where to start

Like two shoes tied at the laces
You’re wearing on my patience
Like a train stuck at a station
Oh boy you’re hurting my heart
Track Name: The Summer Song
When the frost has taken it's toll upon us
and you wanna get back to feeling August
When it's hard to keep from chasing tails
and you're feeling the need for open sails
I've got an idea here let be free to disappear
Sun will lead us down the road beach breeze through an open window
I've got an idea here, halfway through the hottest year
Let's be careless let's be sweet soaking up the summer heat

Hey hey hey
leave your shoes cause we don't need them
going only on our feelings
we don't need a reason we're not answering to anyone
hey hey hey
don't you know you've got me shaking
my heart is open for the taking
believe me when I'm saying, we're not answering to anyone

When it's fear that makes you hold on tighter
and you wanna get back to feeling lighter, yeah
I've got an idea here, we're out on the ocean pier
Wait until the sun goes down, then we're gunna paint the town

Hey hey hey
leave your shoes cause we don't need them
going only on our feelings
we don't need a reason we're not answering to anyone
hey hey hey
don't you know you've got me shaking
my heart is open for the taking
believe me when I'm saying, we're not answering to anyone
Track Name: The World Is Flat
The World is round when I am on the ground
Then I'll be flying to another town
If the world was flat could you imagine that
Then it'd be easy for me to get back oh
I keep on packing my bags I'm already off to another place
And I keep convincing myself I can fit you inside of my suitcase

Oh I don't want to be alone no
I don't wanna, I don't wanna go
Oh I don't want to be alone no
I don't wanna, I don't wanna go

When there are miles that separate our smiles and I'm not near you for a little while
If you are tall I wouldn't have to call cuz I could see you over the trees and cities oh

I keep on packing my bags I'm already off to another place
And I keep convincing myself I can fit you inside of my suitcase

Oh I don't want to be alone no
I don't wanna, I don't wanna go
Oh I don't want to be alone no
I don't wanna, I don't wanna go

But this is the way that it's gotta be
You don't want it to show you don't want me to go and you don't want me to leave
But when I'm away you're all that I see
And when we're apart loves grows in our hearts more than we can believe
Track Name: You Will Or You Won't
You're gunna make me as hard as a rock
When I was as soft as a flower
You're gunna make me put my walls up
It's hard not to do once I'm doubted

But you gotta say if you will or you won't
you gotta say you will or you won't you gotta
Say if you will or you won't cuz
Darlin I'm holdin' my breath

You gotta show me how to keep it inside
So I don't get burned
and you're gunna teach me how to not love so hard
a lesson I thought I had learned

But you gotta say if you will or you won't
you gotta say you will or you won't you gotta
Say if you will or you won't cuz
Darlin I'm holdin' my breath

I'm tired of hearing all boys excuses and
all of their uses of all of my friends and
girls you pick yourselves up
and you pick up the pieces and
you promise yourselves you won't do that again
