Track Name: Fornia
Fornia (Heads to the Wall)

If it had teeth, it would have bitten me
It was staring daggers back at me
You can't lose the world, so lose yourself
Finding yourself will only put you further in yourself

It's true, what they say about you
You're gonna leave this town
And you won't come back

If you don't stick, then we won't stick
If you don't make it work, then what will?
You got a wolf by the ears, got a bull by the horns
Not safe holding on, not safe to let go

It's true, the things they said about you
You came from a ghost town
And you got kicked out
I know, I've got a one track mind
Oh, with the shape I'm in
Man, I gotta bounce back

We'll give up, we'll let it slip
'Cause we all know we can get a new grip
Track Name: Love Finds You
Love Finds You (Olive Branch)

It might be a blessing, it may be a curse
It could get better before it gets worse
You might find nothing, you might get it all
It could be easy, it might get hard

You can't find love
Because love finds you

You might get nowhere, you might get far
You may find all the things that you hoped for
You might get over it, it might never leave
You could rejoice with it, or you could grieve

You won't find love
You can't find love
Because love finds you

It might be a blessing, it may be a curse
It could get better before it gets worse
You might find nothing, you might get it all
It could be easy, it might get hard

You can't find love
Because love finds you
Track Name: What We Make of It
What We Make of It (The Power of Suggestion)

It's not a lot to say you want more
It's no big deal if it's the biggest one you got
You only have to be scared to do it

It's not enough when you don't care
It's no excuse to give up the try
You only have to be scared to do it

On front street with a back-handed compliment
If the shoe don't fit, I can just force it
It's what we make, but I can't make this the world that I want
When all I want is you

It's not a lot to say you want more
It's no big deal if it's the biggest one you got
You only have to be scared to do it
Track Name: I Just Need Your Heart
I Just Need Your Heart (She's the One)

Slow down
I can't calm down, I can't slow down
You put me on

Weighed down
I'll cut my problems out, they weigh me down
I don't need it all

I just need your heart
Your heart and that's all

So long
Like lightning hit my brain, and I'm gone
A world apart

Hold on
I feel you in my bones, and I know that you know
I don't need it all

I just need your heart
Your heart and that's all

My love
My love, I just need your heart
I just need your heart
Track Name: The God Damn Regret
The God Damn Regret (By the Throat)

I need someone, just anyone, that I can blame this on
I know I shouldn't feel this way at all, but I just want out
I'm older than you

You are the only one, yes, the only one that I think about
I wait for miracles or somebody to do this for me
I'm older than you

I'm gonna get real mad, so you don't have to be
I'm gonna get real sad, so you don't have to be
I'm gonna get real scared, so you don't have to be

You can't put the past behind you
It's not what you did, but what you didn't do
You're all the same

I can tell you honestly I act differently when I'm not around you
I hope you find what you are looking for, yes, I sincerely do
I'm older than you

I'm gonna get real mad, so you don't have to be
I'm gonna get real sad, so you don't have to be
I'm gonna get real scared, so you don't have to be
Track Name: Nobody Wants a Stray Cat
Nobody Wants a Stray Cat (Down the Rungs)

An old dog, new tricks
I've got poison spit
Now that I see what you're like
I know not what to be

I've got you pegged
Those things you said
Ever since you came into my life
I know what I should do

I'll take it all and act like it's fine

I'm sure you get like this
The sick help the sick
And all the desperate ones
They save the other ones

I don't want a stray cat
I'll break it off and chew what's left
It's about hunger when you're young
And loss when you're old

I'll make it all and act like it ain't mine
Track Name: It's the Pits
It's the Pits (This is Why We Can't Have Nice Things)

Starting off on the wrong foot, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
All this attitude towards me, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
Unreciprocated love, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all

What you had in store for me, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
Giving me the run around, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
Haunted by my own past, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
Polite polite all the time, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all

I'll break my back to hold you up
I gave up my sense, I found a new rule of thumb

All the shame and all the guilt, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
Always being the accused, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
The rug pulled out from under me, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
An aching deep inside my guts, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all

To never share one honest word, it wasn't what I had planned
No, not at all
