Bad Enough 03:31
The straight girl with the crooked smile convict heart, ain't been out for awhile mixed up love with good sex wrote her very first suicide text Buys a lot of paint for that little house there's other things she knows she can do without she feels fat at a hundred pounds jumps at crashing sounds So how much longer can you and i continue to debate this tell me is it bad, bad enough now She always seems to whisper when she's on the phone it's easier to talk to her if you know for sure she's alone she talks about flexibility says that maybe she won't break bends over backwards to make a stand it's not a chance that she can take So how much longer can you and i continue to debate this Tell me is it bad bad enough now Tabloid reporters, firemen and tornado chasers are gathering around, around your house So how much longer can you and i continue to debate this tell me is it bad... is it bad enough now

There's too much on my mind to get it all into words my rambling about hopeless dreams you've already heard there's a thousand chapters and verses but none of it makes sense all trying to prove my gratitude.. and the way things should've been before the burden, before the dream before you gave me a voice to sing before 'I love you' became obscene before the reckoning It's a waste of time i'm certain our investment in these dreams none of it returns a profit and cold is all it brings but you can't take it with you and you won't seem to give it away so when you go I guess they'll go too all of the beautiful things you say before the burden, before the dream before you gave me a voice to sing before 'I love you' became obscene before the reckoning before the reckoning, before I go before we till under all we grow before the sun is consumed by snow I need to know I'm not alone that I didn't waste my words I didn't miss my mark I didn't lose my way into your heart before I go, I need to know before the reckoning There's too much on my mind get it all into words my rambling about hopeless dreams you've already heard there's a thousand chapters and verses but none of it makes sense all trying to prove my gratitude..to you jf

The Urge 03:52
I've been resisting the urge barely existing, choking to death on every word hidin' behind my confidence I wait until the time is right and I almost let the cat out of the bag tonight I almost messed up and told you what I wanna do ....is It's not my place to say and really there's nothin' I can do Should be on my way instead of fallin' apart in front of you You remember when I told you that you looked nice.... what I wanted to say was DAMN you're beautiful...in the moonlight and I almost messed up and told you what I wanna do is hold you, kiss you touch your face and tell you how I missed you and I wish you wanted this too but before it slips out you cover my mouth and when the silence it becomes awkward and your eyes meet mine you make your escape from me every time but what you don't know is that long after you're gone those eyes haunt me..... like a sad song and I can't believe I almost told you what I wanna do what I want from you is to hold you.. jf

Simpleton 04:13
I've been trying to avoid this hiding in shadows and sneaking around I've been running away I knew that one day it would hunt me down hunt me down I'm more clever, I wish You tell me secrets, we sit and reminisce And I seal the whole thing with a kiss and clever me, all I came up with was this I love you cause ours is a simple song I love you cause it's easy for me to sing along I love you and no, there's nothing wrong with me, see I love..., I love you is just such a simple song In the silence of the dawn I wake up and put my old, my old clothes on A stretch and a yawn And I burst out into laughter at all the secrets we have known and how my love for you has grown and I knew it all along I love you cause ours is a simple song I love you cause it's easy for me to sing along I love you and no, there's nothing wrong with me, see I love..., I love you it's just such a simple song jf

I was the one who went away but it feels like you left me no answer , no call a lot like you're not there at all Nobody's Fault The only advice I can give you don't make promises at all people do what people want to life takes you where it ought to bottom line it's Nobody's Fault Water might choose to become teardrops, snowflakes, an ocean whatever it does, whichever one it's just wet for awhile, then it's gone it's Nobody's Fault It's nobody's fault the dog barks at you nobody knows what he's going through nobody's fault that the moon went down or that gravity ties you to the ground nobody's fault you cut yourself, your eyes add salt we all fall down a lot it's Nobody's Fault There's a lot of folks die a lot of folks born whole lot of changing a whole lot of forms a lot of time we invest on regret with no return on what we've spent it's Nobody's Fault jf

So Many Ways 02:24
Well I've been around for a few days I've seen a thing or two Don't feel old in so many ways Just some old ways that I am accustomed to And I've been trying to act my age Like you, I'm dying too but I don't feel old in So many ways... All things considered I'm not, I'm not doing so bad, These might be the best days we have, We have ever had, And most of my friends they say, They feel the same, Every now and then...and then again, well, Every mind it has a tendency to change, And I've been trying to act my age Like you I'm dying too but I don't feel old in So many ways... Well I've been around for a few days, I've seen a thing or two, Don't feel old in so many ways, Just some old ways that I am accustomed to, And I've been trying to act my age Like you I'm dying to but I don't feel old in So...so...so many ways jf

This Time 03:58
Everything that happens to us Happens for a reason At least that's what we tell ourselves these Dry, dry seasons But something must have changed Cause it seems different this time I can't find the reason hiding Inside the rhyme this time... And you would surely tell me that you You are the answer I didn't catch the question and I don't Know what was the matter... And if I lied to myself that was Surely for my sake I make no decisions for you Make no mistake this time...this time... if it's just fate then I can tell myself it'll be alright this time if it's just fate then we can tell ourselves it'll be alright this time There's one or two, maybe three ways Ways that I could go Lie to you, I could hide from myself or just Just own up and show But I can't be the one, the one to lift To lift you up I don't have the strength these days to Fill my cup this time...this time and if it's just fate then I can tell myself it'll be alright this time this time this time... jf

Jack And Jill (free) 03:18
Jack and Jill, make plans they will find a small place outside the city But save for now pray for better bide their time and just talk about the weather and Jack says "let's get on with the living" "come on let's get on with our lives" and Jill replies "how bout we get through tomorrow" "in fact I'd like to get through tonight" The optimist and the doubter they make the perfect match the matador and the bully out on the front lawn playing 'catch me if you can' and Jack says "let's get on with the living" "come on let's get on with our lives" and Jill replies "how bout we get through tomorrow" "in fact let's try ... "how bout you and i... "why don't just try to get through tonight" jf

I came to this place on my way somewhere somewhere brighter ...I just never got there But I made a few friends and a lover I found out some lost dreams,they... can be rediscovered I think I'll hang my hat here I think I'll stay for awhile I like to see your smile I think I'll hang my hat here When I was younger I dreamed so much larger It felt like greater It must have to be farther But I found out lately Some of the greatest dreams They are right here Right here beside me I think I'll hang my hat here I think I'll stay for awhile I like to see your smile I, think I'll hang my hat here I think I'll stick around I got nothing better to do If I could stay with you I think I'll hang my hat here Right here Here's to you Here's to our friends Here's to wherever This old road it may end Here's to the memories That we have and we are making Here's to the love That's out there for the taking and I I think I'll hang my hat here I think I'll stay for awhile I like to see your smile I I think I'll hang my hat here I think I'll stick around I got nothing better to do If I could stay with you I think I'll hang my hat here jf

Believe 04:40
It's alright to fight alright to run away it's alright to say something if you you've got something to say It's alright to be quiet I just don't know how it's alright and it just stands to reason I'd have something to say now I don't believe in goodbye's I don't I don't believe in regret I don't believe that anyone needs anymore than they get I can't believe it, my daughter She's already smarter than me I only have one thing left to give her I'll give her what I...I believe It's alright to be alone but love is your fate it's alright if it takes you your whole lifetime that's not too long to wait It's alright if you act like you did back when you were a child it's alright to be scared as long as you still smile I don't believe in goodbye's I don't I don't believe in regret I don't believe that anyone needs anymore than they get I can't believe it, my daughter She's already smarter than me I only have one thing left to give her I'll give her what I...I believe I believe our teachers...they are everyone we meet they're all poets and prophets we pass out on the streets I can't believe it my daughter she's already smarter than me and I only have one thing left to give her I'll give her what I I believe jf
