Track Name: Do You Wanna Hurt Me
What I gotta do to get your attention?
Used to look at me like I was all that caught your eye
Now I don’t even think I know your intentions
One look at love was enough to go and leave me blind

But you keep running around
You’re running around
You’re running around
Run us in the ground
Keep running around
We’re crumbling down

I keep trying but you keep sighing
Do you wanna hurt, do you wanna hurt me?
Swore you’re fallin’ but you’re not callin’
Do you wanna hurt, do you wanna hurt me?
‘Cause I ain’t down with this runaround
And I’ll be leaving before I’m bleeding
You don’t wanna hurt, you don’t wanna hurt me

Never been too good with the let down
I try so hard just to let it go
But your love was a fire fated to burn out
So I’ll curse the darkness while I walk it alone

But you keep running around
You’re running around
You’re running around
Run me in the ground
Keep running around
We’re crumbling down

CHORUS

‘Cause when I kiss you, I only miss you
Leave me with a bitter taste
So if you don’t know, I’m letting you go
Won’t let my love go to waste
Will I make it someday, if there’s nowhere else to go?
Will I find it some way, or will I just be alone?

I keep trying but you keep sighing
Do you wanna hurt, do you wanna hurt me?
Swore you’re fallin’ but you’re not callin’
Do you wanna hurt, do you wanna hurt me?
‘Cause I ain’t down with this runaround
And I’ll be leaving before I’m bleeding
Track Name: All Along
Slender, you render me useless
Tongue-tied and in your eyes a mess
Correspondence so contagious
I’ve read it over not to forget

Thought I saw between your lines
Written me a dozen times
I wanted you like the winter
Craves a ray of sun to splinter
All the ice that has frozen under my feet on the ground that I’ve walked alone
Thinking you would be there when I got home

But she was in your bedroom all along
Your sheets bearing her perfume all along
It’s so hard to be around you
And to know that I must go without you
When she is in your bedroom all along

Saw in you the answer
To loneliness that grew like cancer
But should have kept to my old doubts
‘Cause you burned me, turned me inside out
And like the last cigarette that I stamped out in Seville
Wish I could give you up
And I tell myself that I will

But then I breathe you in and I am wrong
I feel you on my skin and I am wrong
It’s so hard to be around you
And to know that I must go without you
When she is in your bedroom all along

Turn away from all the things we could have laughed about
It’s nothing new, but disappointment I could do without
And all the lines half-hearted woven got me to believe
All this nothing would give way to something here for me
But all this time, I was waiting for you
All this time, you had to put me on for
All this time, the worst have no intentions
All this time, it’s not alright

‘Cause she was in your bedroom all along
Your sheets bearing her perfume all along
It’s so hard recalling how to
Calm the burning in my bones without you
When she is in your bedroom all along
Track Name: Better for You
In the blur of highway exit signs, I’m your laugh while you drive
But as I grip the wheel and strain my own eyes, you lay asleep by my side
Well my arms are weak, and my bones have grown sore from holding you with no support
We’ve been down this road too many times before, I’m not laughing anymore.

You said you wanted me the most
But empty words are only ghosts
Of love you could have given if you’d tried
But you could not be bothered to
Return the love I gave to you
I’m never more alone than by your side

I’ll always be better to you than you are to me
I’ll always be better for you than you are for me
I’ll always be better to you than you are to me
I’ll always be better for you

I can take the brush between my fingertips and paint red on my lips
Or I could waste away to the bones in my hips, you’d never notice
I was the one who called you when the world was unfair, nobody else cared
Now I watch the plans we made vanish into the air like they were never even there

And though your love was like the tide
So often on the shallow side
The light from mine could never pull you in
You took my heart so selfishly
And left me waiting endlessly
For love to grow on land that lay barren
Well now the seeds are settlin’

That I’ll always be better to you than you are to me
I’ll always be better for you than you are for me
I’ll always be better to you than you are to me
I’ll always be better for you

In the blur of highway exit signs,
I’m your laugh while you drive
Track Name: Hold On
So this is how it goes
We both know
There is some semblance of attraction
But I can’t let it show
‘Cause only I know
That you’ll burn up in this reaction

You’d best keep your distance
Let this be good riddance
We both know I tried
But now you’d better run and hide
For my persistence and
All my resistance will
Like knives, cut you up inside

Hold on, hold on and you will see
Hold on, hold on, hold on,
You’re better off with me gone

Sometimes I feel ashamed
Of the games
I play to make our heart beat faster
And I’m the one to blame
‘Cause even though I feel the same,
I am capable of only disaster

Please yield to my warnings,
You’ll wake up in the morning
Only to find
I’m no longer by your side
It’s not that you’ve wronged me or
That I’ve been longing for
Something aside
It’s just that I can never be alright

Hold on, hold on and you will see
Hold on, hold on, hold on,
You’re better off with me gone

And what hurts me the most is that you’ll move on
And find someone to make you happier than I could
And I’ll still be alone, ‘cause I have never known
How to make love last when we know it should

Hold on, hold on and you will see
Hold on, hold on, hold on,
You’re better off with me gone
