Track Name: I Hate The Player And The Game
i just wanna give up and say it's not worth it
and the worst is, knowing you gave me these scars
i could try all my tricks and be poetic,
and then regret it, cos i'll never get to where you are
cos dreaming with a hole for a heart won't get you far

go now and leave me all alone
what are you waiting for?
you act like you don't know what you're doing
i know now cos i've seen it all before
your broken promises carry much more weight than you've proven

i guess i made up hints and stolen glances
subtle advances were somehow magnified
i spend too long in my mind looking for answers
but what are the chances that i'll even make it out alive
cos without you i can't quite get it right

go now and leave me all alone
what are you waiting for?
you act like you don't know what you're doing
i know now cos i've seen it all before
your broken promises carry much more weight than you've proven

grow up and show me some backbone
what are you waiting for?
it's not like i don't know what you're doing
i know when you walk right through that door
every doubt i've had and every little fear will be disproven
Track Name: Scottie
i can't feel
anything anymore
my lungs weighed down
to the ground, through the floor

a victim to the tide
i gotta let it ride

you've said your last goodbye
but i
i want one more
just for, just for me

your voice a song
i'll always sing along

it's dangerous to get so attached to you
it's dangerous to get so, get so attached

the water's rising
can't sink or swim
off the shoreline
this is the end

time to go
you're coming home

it's dangerous to get so attached to you
it's dangerous to get so, get so attached

i long to hear you
cutting through all the fire
i long to see you
never known such desire

be careful when it grows
traps you in its throes
gets under your skin
you've got to let me in

it's dangerous to get so attached to you
it's dangerous to get so, get so attached
Track Name: Pop Song in A (Apology)
and when i see you, i die a little inside
but i must admit it's a good good feeling
you make me smile, you make me want to cry
i don't want you here but you can't go leaving

so then i wait til i see you again
and then i wait just a little longer
deep down i know i'll never spit it out
absence makes the heart grow stronger

yeah this bears a striking resemblance to mistakes i've made in my past
and perhaps it won't last, i won't last
but something tells me i've gotta try
yeah something tells me it's worth a try

so come here, no go away
i want you but i can't take your face
so love me, no leave me dry
you make me high, i can't decide

so now you're gone, i must have missed my chance
and i can't tell if you don't miss me
i can't feel my heart, it's beating out of my chest
i can't admit i was misleading

oh i was stupid, i was selfish, i didn't care
but i couldn't tell you when i was there
i still want you, i still love you, i still need you
so come back, oh come back

yeah come here, no go away
i want you but i can't take your face
so love me, no leave me dry
you make me high, i can't decide

and if you decide to listen to me,
please believe me when i say i'm sorry.
