Back To You 03:29
I thought oh my my, I'm looking at a dream First time I looked at you One hand in your pocket, ripped blue jeans Taking in the room and I thought oh my god, if he comes over I might just him a chance Nice to meet you, where you been Do you want to dance? Now I want to feel the way that we did that night (that night) Alone in a room full of strangers with stars in their eyes But I got caught up in the concrete jungle Following the yellow moon Want to get back, want to get back, get back to you We rode the Queen car east, we walked along the beach You held me close to you, But then the storm clouds came, thunder and rain I lost my way to you Now I want to feel the way that we did that night (that night) Alone in your arms while the stars shone like sparks in the sky But I got caught up in the concrete jungle Following the yellow moon Want to get back, want to get back, get back to you I want to see you in the morning When the sun comes streaming through Want to get back, want to get back, get back to you when I find you I'll will hold you hold you all night long hold you tighter hold you closer than anyone I won't let go I won't let go I got caught up in the concrete jungle Following the yellow moon Want to get back, want to get back, get back to you I want to see you in the morning When the sun comes streaming through Want to get back, want to get back, get back to you I've been looking for love in all the wrong faces Opening my heart in all the wrong places Want to get back, want to get back, get back to you I got caught up in the concrete jungle Following the yellow moon ooo ooo Want to get back to you Want to get back to you Want to get back to you

Every time our eyes meet Across a crowded room It's almost more than I can take Every time you're near me I feel it in the air And the pounding of my heart gives me away Kiss me, if you want to be loved, do you want to be loved? Do you want to be loved? Cuz this feels, like we're falling in love, are we falling in love? Do you wanna be loved? Like a sudden earthquake She broke your heart in two And you don't need another goodbye Baby take a deep breath Let go and let me in Cuz I'm not here to waste precious time Kiss me, if you want to be loved, do you want to be loved? Do you want to be loved? Cuz this feels, like we're falling in love, are we falling in love? Do you wanna be loved? we ride the subway, and read the signs your leg pressed against mine you are where my gaze always lands I am in your hands Kiss me, if you want to be loved, do you want to be loved? Do you want to be loved? Cuz this feels, like we're falling in love, are we falling in love? Do you wanna be loved? Every time our eyes meet Across a crowded room Its almost more than I can take

Remember when I took off down the drive It was a cold and wet December night You threw your glass at the floor I flew out the front door It was a hella hellava fight I'm damaged goods you're damaged to0 So I do me and you do you We got the kind of love that doesn't give up I'm damaged goods but that don't mean I don't need love Remember when you slept out on the porch You came home so late I bolted the door These days I think life's too short Just a wave crash on the shore Isn't it time we made love not war? I'm damaged goods you're damaged too So I do me and you do you We got the kind of love that doesn't give up I'm damaged goods every time you leave you break a piece of me I'm down on my knees don't give up on me please I'm damaged goods you're damaged too So I do me and you do you We got the kind of love that doesn't give up I'm damaged goods but that don't mean I don't need your love

Tailspin 04:01
she shuts you down, she likes control she speaks to you like you're a child removes you like the ring on her hand and now I can't shake it off I want to save you you're going down in a tailspin you don't know where she ends and you begin your going down but I will be there to pick up the pieces and lift you up in the air she tears you down rips you apart then builds you up like she's got a heart I listen when you come to speak your truth and wonder why she don't love you like I do you're going down in a tailspin you don't know where she ends and you begin your going down but I will be there to pick up the pieces and lift you up in the air my love my love my love I will fix you my love my love my love be your parachute you're going down.... you don't know where she ends and you begin your going down but I will be there to pick up the pieces and lift you up in the air

We Got This 04:02
If you don't care Why are you still here? If I'm not the one for you Why hold me like you do? If it's time Time to move along Why do we talk and talk Until our voices are gone? Baby let me say one more thing Let me try to ease your mind Cuz you mean the world to me And love is not a waste of time Baby we got this We got this We got so much love it hurts We got this I knew it from the first Baby we got this If you're waiting for me To turn and set you free Your gonna wait a long long time Cuz I want you by my side Baby put your suitcases down Reach over and draw the shade Cuz I wanna remind you now Of all the love we've made Baby we've got this We've got this We've got so much love it hurts Baby we've got this You knew it from the first Baby we got this Step away from the door And hold me tight I don't want to fight anymore Baby we got this We got this We got so much love it hurts Baby we got this We knew it from the first Baby we got this

Tightrope 02:43
They're dancing on the table party games on their phones I'm feeling kinda anxious walking in alone Shoes piled by the front door jackets on the bed and you surrounded by a group of girls hanging on what you've said And I've never felt more drawn in More dazzled by the view And I keep getting higher As I make my way to you I feel like I'm walking on a tightrope carrying all of these high hopes I promised you I'd show up well guess what? here I am I'd tell you I can't stay late but time melts in your hands And you crown my words with laughter Kiss me on the cheek I wonder will you catch me if I get knocked off my feet I feel like I'm walking on a tightrope carrying all of these high hopes I feel like I'm walking on a tightrope carrying all of these high hopes It's a very thin line you know it's true a very thin line I walk for you I feel like I'm.... carrying all of these.... I feel like I'm walking a fine line between Just for now and all mine I feel like I'm walking on a tightrope carrying all of these high hopes I feel like I'm walking a fine line between Just for now and all mine
