Track Name: Sinner
if I knew you I’d make you the best thing I can with my hands
if I knew you I’d write you a song with fewer words
and if I was alone, if I was free, I’d give you the time that I have

but I’ll leave it and leave it and leave it
and I’ll see you around sometime
will you know that there’s something on my side?
I need you to know but I can’t say

I’ve settled with someone above me and god damn I’m trying to be good
the love that I thought I would never deserve
cause I’m too difficult
he knows I have problems and I can’t sit still without
crashing and burning
and crying and turning our world upside down
cause I’m scared, I’m so scared

so I’m sitting here thinking about you
and I feel like a sinner
cause I love what I have but I want it all
in my greed and my childishness
and he’ll stick by me but I’ll hurt him
and I’ll hold both my hands to his chest
and I won’t let you know, I’ll be safe and go home
and I won’t lose a thing and I’ll sleep without dreams
he will cry in the night, we’ll let time make it right
and we’ll go on,
we’ll go on
Track Name: I With Mine
maybe it's nothing
or maybe I'll be dealing with this
til I am 50
and there's nothing left

I've never lost it
the question's always gonna be how high can I fall from this time?
we're in separate circles
well I think of you all the time

do I lie to myself like you lied to me?
we always required some suspension of disbelief
I thought I'd healed, thought I'd left you
you with you sicknesses and I
I with mine

I know it's over
I know that you don't think of me
til I am unsure
and you rear your head in dreams
is nothing as it seems?
Track Name: No Brakes
I’d like to be myself again
even if it means going through with you
and if the old wounds open up
maybe I could get just a little more blood

maybe I should be a little more careful what I wish for
maybe I should be a little less careless with my thoughts

I’d like to be myself again
every empty promise will rest as it should
and I’ll fall back and feel the way
everybody always said I would

once in a lifetime
a girl is supposed to feel blessed
maybe I’ve had mine, and all that has been will change

I’d like to be myself again
even if it means pulling up stakes
I’d like to be myself again
even if it means having no brakes
