Track Name: Break Me Down
You tell me love is nothing without loss
But seems to me it’s worth the cost
To pull myself up off the floor
Just so I can fall once more
I’ve been warned the pain is rough
But I’ve been standing long enough
So spare your words and save your breath
My lips await the kiss of death

Break me down (I wanna feel it)
Turn me inside out (I wanna heal again)
Break me down (I wanna feel it)
I’m ready, I’m ready to fall

Feel this beating in my chest?
Let it skip before it rests
So I’ll know I’m capable of
This goddamn feeling you call love
Is this a blessing in disguise?
I won’t know heartache or good-byes
But you know I just wish I could
Let your love hurt me so good

[CHORUS]

And you know what I’m waiting for, so just
Smash my window, break down my door
And I’ll keep singing more and more
Won’t you be the one to

Break me down
Turn me inside out
Just break me down
I’m ready, I’m ready (Hey!)

{CHORUS]
Track Name: Away With Words
I’m four drafts in waiting for the words to come, but still they never do
When I think of you
‘Cause I can’t speak the way I feel it
I'm so damn inarticulate

I wish I had a way with words

You move over to the edge of your seat
And stare back at me
Thoughts slip through my mind like sand in a sieve
There is nothing I wouldn’t give

If I could have a way with words

So much to say and no way to say it
I slip underneath the silence and I’m gone (I'm gone)
But I know you can see me, wish you could hear me out
You’ll never know the words I wish I’d shout (I’d scream them out)
No, you’ll never know you’re all I think about

"I’ll die at the hands of any word you speak,"
That is the first thing you said to me
‘Cause you said you noticed that my eyes showed it
And there is no need to justify love
‘Cause words will never be good enough, so don’t even try
To match what I feel for you inside

‘Cause you just take away my words
Yeah, I wish I had a way with words
So let’s just do away with words
Track Name: River Run Dry
We used to drive around
When the sun went down
We used to drive around
You would pick me up
You used to set me off
Like a rocket
You used to set me off
But now you just let me down

Why, you let this river run dry
You see the pain in only your own eyes
And I’m the one that you compromised
Whoa

Where did we go wrong?
We used to sing every song
At the top of our lungs
Till we couldn’t talk
And how could you forget
Everything I ever said?
How could you forget me?

[CHORUS]

I’m charming, so charming
Life’s so hard for the pretty little darling
Well everyone else is fucked up too
But no one makes excuses like you
I’m clever, so clever
Just blame the world for every failed endeavor
When there’s nothing left to burn won’t you
Realize that it’s your turn?

When will you, when will you, when will you light this fire?

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Oh Oh Ocean
Place yourself beside me
Closer to you I’ll be
That’s the way you pulled me in
Break me, leave me wanting more
Until you slammed the door
On all we could have been

And I'll never know
How our song would go
Instead I’m singing oh oh

Ocean, I need the ocean
To help me see
I’m so alone, I’m so alone, oh oh
Ocean, please calm me, ocean,
I need the sea
To swallow up this air that I breathe

Love, I’ve never felt so lost
You got your signals crossed
And left me tangled in this mess
Distance from you brings me down
Now once again I drown
In this familiar loneliness

And I’ll never show
I scream to let go
My ears are ringing oh oh

[CHORUS]

So won’t you wash over me?

So while you try to find another
I will wish I never bothered
To be true and let you into
The world I’d closed off
Let you take your clothes off
And as we lay under the covers
I asked if you had loved another
And though you shook your head to say no
Knew you did long ago
Now I can’t let you go

How much longer till I come around?
One more moment till I break on down
Any second I’ll be giving out
So wash over me, break over me now
How much longer till I come around?
One more moment till I break on down
Any second I’ll be giving out on you

Ocean, ocean
I need the sea
To swallow me up, now sing it with me

[CHORUS]
