Track Name: The Worrier
Don't think, don't fret
Don't you worry just yet
About any trouble we may find
If your fear is I'll go, honey you should just know
I won't be changing my mind

'Cause I told you I'd never leave your side
Even if you are turning, I'll be right behind
Just bidin' my time, for you to come back to me
Oh I'll be such a fool, but I'll do it patiently
So you can't help but see, I'm nothing but sweet
And I've got all the love you need

There's no predicting the end
The future means nothing, and it's just pretend
So dream of today, because the sooner you see
The only constant is change, that is except for me
'Cause I'll stay the same, unless you need me to change
In that case I'll find a way

Well I don't get much done these days
The fear inside my head, it keeps me in a haze
Saying you will come to pass, 'cause this is just the start
And I've been so reckless with a delicate heart
But I'll live with the risk, if it's living like this
And it's you I'd have to miss
Track Name: Spread Thin
Spread Thin how long can I go?
This mask is a trap, I know
And a steady steep deep is trap, multiplyin'
Should be ready to keep my back, when you're cryin'

Sanity is gone, but I don't miss it
'Cause somethin's always wrong, when you're lucid
I know ignorance is bliss, when you're dyin
If I told you I don't care, I was lyin'

'Cause I worry for you, I worry for me too
Yeah I worry for you, I worry for me too
But don't cry my dear, what good comes from that?
If all love makes you sad, then I've come to drive you mad

Then I start to see the light
I realize it'll all subside
And you'll go on with your life, so will I
If at first it don't feel right, give it time

'Cause I worry for you, I worry for me too
Yeah I worry for you, I worry for me too
I worry.
Track Name: Saturday Too
How could I forget you dear?
You're all I want, I hope that's clear
I think about you, all through the day
And all through the night, more of the same

I want you
You want me too
Just come over here, to forget all your fears
When we're alone my dear

I've been known to have a selfish kind of love
(a selfish lover)
Any other lover's love's not enough
(can't love another)
My demands they are rigorous but few
(I just need you)
I just need to have every single part of you

I need you
I know it's true
So come over here, and forget all your fears
When we're alone my dear

Friday night, and Saturday Too
While everyone's out, I only want you

I want you
You want me too
Track Name: Speak to You Sweet
I want to Speak to You Sweet
And take you where I please
And I want to talk to you kind
To ease your worried mind

Speak in metaphor
heartwrench on the two and four beat
I want to Speak to You Sweet

And the things you want to hear
I really do feel dear
And I ain't afraid of going away
But I know that I may fade away

But it's okay
We're all going to fade someday away

I want you to wear my love
And be who you're thinking of
But just like a crown, my love's going to weigh you down
I know that you'll be found, around

But love gets in the way
Everybody knows
Yeah love is just a nuisance
I told me so
That's why I had to ask you to go
That's why you had to ask me to go
Track Name: Concrete Lovers
A letter to my love is sent
Another written shelter from my bed
Hold onto my words my dear
I promise even lies are all sincere

At times it's hard to realize
How time puts on a thin disguise to clear
To forget any past regret
To forfeit any lovers letter sent

'Cause I want you so bad it's hard
To accept you anywhere but on my arm
It'll all work out, of that I have no doubts
I'm sure

Why does any person change
How do even Concrete Lovers Fade?
To crumbled pieces on the ground
Heavy yet so scattered, broken down

Oh what it takes just to sustain
A piece of mind and steady frame of time
As long as my heart is right
My mind will follow suit and sturdy sign

'Cause I want you so bad, It's hard
To accept you anywhere but on my arm
But it'll all work out, of that I have no doubt
I'm sure

Oh I want you so bad, It's hard
To accept you anywhere but on my arm
But it'll all work out, honey I have no doubts
I'm sure
Track Name: Float Alone
Well I know that I'm leaving
It doesn't mean I'm gone
And although I'll be moving honey
It doesn't mean that I'll be moving on

You'll always have a special place in my heart
But love has a funny way of falling apart
I'll be back again, of this I'm sure
My heart won't allow me to be so far apart

And upon my return
Don't seem so strange
Because I stayed the same
And it feels like everybody changed

You'll always have a special place in my heart
But in the end it's true, you can never really restart
But I'll be back again, of this I'm sure
My heart won't allow me to be so far apart

Well we all must
Float Alone just
No one knows just where we go
Track Name: The Widow
I think I am ready to say my goodbyes
To wish all you well, and finally close my eyes
Truth be known, and truth be told
I always knew I wouldn't grow old

It's gonna be hard in the great beyond
Luckily I knew my time wasn't long
The waiting is harder than the being gone
But how could I know, I could be wrong

So take away my sweet heartbeat
Take any wanderin' left in my feet
Take all my breath, but leave me my soul
Remember me as the heart that you know

From light years away I'll say don't you cry
Friends all around say it wasn't my time
I'll say don't you miss me, but I'll want you to
'Cause we both know I'd do it for you

And as far as you findin' a new man to love
Honey I knew my dead love ain't enough
As long as he loves you and treats you kind
Half as much as when I was alive
Then don't you worry about a thing
Or saying "I love you" to a man that ain't me
