Track Name: Had You Known Me Better
I've been thinking about architecture
and the way we would look together.
I could build us a house, we could make it a home.
If you let me in, you'll never go out alone.

It's been getting better since we've been apart.
Your salt in my wound has only seasoned my heart.
Girl, you looked so sweet in that summer dress--
I'm so bitter I just have to confess:

Had you known me better, you would love me.

It's been getting better since my feelings were told:
Your smile lights lives like sunlight but my skyline's turning gold.
Girl, you looked so sweet in that summer dress--
I'm so bitter I just have to confess:

Had you known me better, you would love me.

It's been getting better.
The ocean rises to meet the sky.
There's plenty more fish in the sea for me,
but you're like Loch Ness: one of a kind.
Girl, we're getting older.
It's better to live while we're alive.
Won't you walk on the water with me
and turn these sour grapes into wine?

Had you known me better, you would love me.
Track Name: One
I keep a secret from you every day.
No one can know the things I want to say.
I want to tell you about this feeling that is killing me.
I try to hide it, but you shine the brightest light on me.

I'll be your one.

I see you keeping other boys at bay.
They try to chase you, but you get away.
But you're done running; it's no fun when you play games with fools.
They're just kids; don't fall for it because I'm falling for you.

I'll be your one.

I keep a secret from you every day.
No one can know the things I want to say.

I'll be your one.
Track Name: Too Far Gone
You've got some heart stuck in your teeth.
I'm a lamb to the kill in a world full of sheep.
The call from the top told me I'm weak,
so I pull on my wool and inherit the meek.

I'm too far gone to ever turn back.
Your love is gasoline, and I'm looking for a match.
You wanted the truth, and I never held back.
And if you want some more all you gotta do is ask.

You've got some nerve pinching my cheek.
I'm a landfill for gold in the land of the cheap.
I climbed to the top and jumped from the peak,
singing, "Hello, goodbye, you're welcome, it was nothing!"

I'm too far gone to ever turn back.
Your love is gasoline, and I'm looking for a match.
You wanted the truth, and I never held back.
And if you want some more all you gotta do is ask.

All you gotta do is ask.
