Track Name: Wounded Healer
There's no use being headstrong with a heart so weak
but you insist on walking through your injuries

Let me walk
Let me...

Oh let me come inside
where I can rid you of your strife

With no one else in sight
I can keep you through the night, child

And should this cost my life
what a pretty way to die

If home is where the heart is, it's in disrepair
So take my broken hands, and I'll give what I can spare

Let me work

Until your fear subsides
I would not leave your side, no

Until your tears have dried
I would not close my eyes

And should this cost my life
what a pretty way to die
Track Name: Nobody's Watching
Two wrongs don't make it right,
and two half truths are still a lie,
but you keep your head held high
like you've kept your pride

See, but nobody told you to talk!
you just decided to play the part
and I am sorry that you feel distraught,
but it was all your fault

But nobody's watching you now
so shed all your worries and doubts
'cause nobody's watching you now

Terrified of the light
you covertly plan your outdoor life
but with every secret you hide,
there's a part that dies

See, but nobody told you to walk!
you just started moving without the heart
and I am sorry you decided to start,
but it was on your mark.

But nobody's watching you now
so shed all your worries and doubts
'cause nobody's watching you now
Track Name: Strong Enough
Well I opened my heart under the stars down by Barton Springs
Yeah I caught your eye sitting outside underneath the tree
Well you pursed your lips, you worked them hips to sit down next to me
Yeah you touched my leg and filled my head with a hollywood movie scene

Still I figured I would let you know

That I am strong enough to pick you up
and to sweep you off your feet
And if you want you could come back home
with me...

Well holy roller, I can't control you make me so week at the knees
Let's just go for a drive down Riverside. See what's in store for me
Yeah 'cause judging by your eyes, it looks like we should try our hands at hide and seek
'Cause from head to toe, your body shows your the kind who plays for keeps

Still I figured I would let you know

That I am strong enough to pick you up
and to sweep you off your feet
And if you want you could come back home
with me...

Yeah, I am strong enough to pick you up
and to sweep you off your feet
And if you want you could come back home
with me...
Track Name: How 'Bout It
If you're a flower on the wall
You're certainly the finest rose of them all
And if your pedals start to whither and fall,
You just give me a call.

Or just put on your summer dress
Let the sunshine take care of the rest
Or just lay your head on my chest, girl
I don't mind

How 'bout we paint this town some shade of red
How 'bout we come back and explore my bed?
How 'bout we lose our minds, get out of our heads?
How 'bout we ditch regrets for the lives we've led?

Yeah, how 'bout it?

It don't matter if it starts to rain
You'll still be pretty, just wet and plain
And we can let all of our clothes stain
Like we're both insane.

Or just make a dash to my car
You tell me how to drive, tell me how far
See as long as we ain't apart, girl
I don't mind.

How 'bout we paint this town some shade of red?
How 'bout we come back and explore my bed?
How 'bout we lose our minds, get out of our heads?
How 'bout we ditch regrets for the lives we've led?

How 'bout we take heart in being glad?
How 'bout we love so hard it drives us mad?
How 'bout we ditch being sorry and sad?
How 'bout I just tell you that I want you bad?

How 'bout we slow this down?
How 'bout we do something to fix that frown?
How 'bout we ditch this god forsaken town?
We can go home to drink and let the sorrows drown

How 'bout we kiss like the world would end?
How 'bout I get real, don't play pretend?
How 'bout I shut up, and I just press send?
I will tell you that I want to be more than friends.

Yeah, how 'bout it?
Track Name: Take Me By Surprise
She took me by surprise
See she was smart and did not strike until she saw
Until she saw the whites of my eyes,
I swear to God
If I had known she'd be the type to turn me on
Then I'd step off that firing line

But that Texas summer rain feels so nervous and warm
But it makes her body shine like a beacon meant to warn
The clouds they sweat with anticipation of the oncoming war
Between who we want to be, and what we already are

She took me by surprise...

It took me by surprise
How the days and weeks went by like flashes of light
So warm and bright they left me blind,
And when the smoke came to rest
The truth it hit like cannon fire straight through my chest
And I woke up in the coldest sweat

You see, she slipped into my heart. I'm still dodging all these mines
But I would not mind these dreams if I'd just wake up feeling right

But I am tired of all these nights where I can't sleep, and lord I've tried
I guess I'll waste my worried time trying to get back in her sights

She took my surprise...

Take me by surprise...
