Track Name: Born Yesterday
I was born just yesterday
My mother rose from her bedside to take me away
I felt the daylight
Through the hospital doors for the very first time

I took my first steps yesterday
Through the garden with my father where we used to play
So soft and sweet
Nothing ever felt better than the flowers underneath my feet

I wasn't ready at all

I fell in love just yesterday
In the glow of her tail lights fading away
Will she know my name?
And do you think that there's a way she'll ever feel the same?

I broke my own heart yesterday
Through my red eyes, searching for a reason to stay
I won't forget her face
And though the time isn't right, you know the world is not a perfect place

I wasn't ready at all

Now it's so damn cold and I hate it
It never used to be like this every year
Now we're growing old and I hate it
It never used to be like this every year

I wasn't ready at all
Track Name: Sincerely
I'll never keep you close to me
When you're not stretched across the globe
You feel you're sinking like a stone
This isn't where you want to be
You left me sitting on a train
Heading to the city that you hate

But one day I'll meet your children in the town that you grew up in
And they'll look just like their mother, yes they will

I sincerely hope you'll say you're sorry soon
I sincerely hope you'll say you're sorry soon

When you've got nothing left to see
I'll ask you if you're on your own
Or if you're ever coming home
This isn't where you want to be
Living every day the same
Or making plans to take my name

But one day I'll meet your children near the house that you grew up in
And they'll look just like their mother, yes they will
Well, they'll look just like their mother, yes they will

I sincerely hope you'll say you're sorry soon
I sincerely hope you'll say you're sorry soon
Well I hope and pray every night and day you'll figure out what's best for you
I sincerely hope you'll say you're sorry soon

Footsteps follow me down
When I met you by the plane, I begged you not to go
We could've been the talk of this town
Telling stories about all the famous friends we know


Footsteps follow me down
When I met you by the plane, I begged you not to go
We could've been the talk of this town
About how we got out and how we're never coming home

I hope you'll say you're sorry soon
Track Name: Good News
Someday I'll make you proud
I swear I'll show you all the strength I've found
Just forget all those flaws you saw
We'll keep our voices down
So you won't have to say my name out loud
Please tell me, do you need me at all?

They still call you kid and you hate it but you don't want to admit
You're coming back to face the facts that all your dreams just won't come true
And all your memories fade too soon

Can I be your good news?

They still bring you down; familiar faces you erased when you left this town
They're growing old and staying bored but don't you worry you're still young
And you owe nothing to anyone

Someday I'll make you proud
I swear I'll show you all the strength I've found
Just forget all those flaws you saw
We'll keep our voices down
So you won't have to say my name out loud
Please tell me, do you need me at all?

If I was your shadow, would you ever leave me in the dark?
Come trace the lines across my back to see where the arrow left its mark

Someday I'll make you proud
I swear I'll show you all the strength I've found
Just forget all those flaws you saw
We'll keep our voices down
So you won't have to say my name out loud
Please tell me, do you need me at all?
Track Name: We Dance For Rain
I watch every move you make
Since the morning I saw you shake
I heard your steps across the floor
I knew the reasons you were leaving for
I knew that nothing was right
I felt you shiver that night
You say you're scared of growing old
You're not the only one who's cold

I'm not afraid of the dark anymore 'cause I know we've been that way from the start

When the storm is at your door
And you can't fight it anymore
There's no one left to blame
We dance for rain
We dance for rain

I felt it creeping up close
When you left I found a new ghost
It followed me and stole my breath
It comes alive in love and death
I felt the temperature rise
I saw the smoke cloud up my eyes
I built this house up from the ground
So you can watch me burn it down

I'm not afraid of hell anymore 'cause I know we've played that part so well

When the storm is at your door
And you can't fight it anymore
There's no one left to blame
We dance for rain
We dance for rain

Like a thousand times before
When the lightning shrieks and the thunder roars
I still hear your name
We dance for rain
We dance for rain

I can still hear the church bells, they've been ringing every day for years
But it's been too long and you're too far gone, the sound will never reach your ears

When the storm is at your door
And you can't fight it anymore
There's no one left to blame
We dance for rain
We dance for rain

Like a thousand times before
When the lightning shrieks and the thunder roars
I still hear your name
We dance for rain
We dance for rain
Track Name: Summer Never Starts
Summer never starts until I pull my body out of bed and shake the dust out of my sleepy head
I took it all to heart; every single lesson that you gave for why you gave up and why this was for the best

This time last year, you were wishing we had something more
And you were slipping slowly out the door
Wasting all our precious seconds to find the better life that you were hoping for

And I won't think about you anymore
No, I won't think about you anymore

Summer never starts until I spend these next three nights still dreaming 'bout what it was like to finally be enough
I took my world apart and put it back together using pieces that I found when I was young and full of love

This time next year, you'll be sleeping in with someone new
And you'll be telling secrets in your room
Wasting all your precious seconds on the exact same moments we were in before

And I won't think about you anymore
No, I won't think about you anymore

And I won't think about you anymore
No, I won't think about you anymore
Track Name: Your New Place
Wish you could see me now
Crossing through the better side of town
When I passed by your new place tonight

I was searching for a shred of hope
But I knew I couldn't get too close
'Cause I saw from the lights, you were home

We used to wake up early
Two cups of coffee and the paper in front of us
Do you remember it well or were we wasting time?
Your dog at my feet and my hands on your knees
We're out on the front porch, fighting the summer heat
Were we really in love or were we wasting time?

Wish all your words were true
How I'd always be there to
See the look cross your face
When you moved into your new place

It was a daydream dressed in blue
And it is big enough for two
Tell me who's coming home to you

We used to stay up late
To talk about the future that we had in front of us
Do you remember it well or were we wasting time?
We'd take a year and we'd disappear
So we could see everything that we couldn't here
Were we really in love or were we wasting time?

So now I fall asleep on your side of the bed
Just to keep it warm, just to keep it safe again

We used to drive to the point
So we could see the whole damn world in front of us
Do you remember it well or were we wasting time?
The music played from the tape that you made
But you just cried when I told you 'I love you, babe'
Were we really in love or were we wasting time?

Were we really in love or were we wasting time?
