Solo Act
(M. Palmer)

Verse 1:
I’m allergic to holding my lover’s hand
To letting him break through
He’s begging me to give him more than I can stand
Time to cut him loose, 'cause

Pre-Chorus:
I don’t wanna get
I don’t wanna get hurt, hurt
I can’t put in the
I can’t put in the work, work
Even if you love me
Like you say you do, do
Might take some getting
Might take some getting used to, to

Chorus:
Cuz I’ve always been a solo act
I’ve fallen in love but never made it last
I give up my heart and then I take it back
Now I’m feeling oh so low
Cuz I’m still solo tonight
X2




Verse 2:
These excuses never keep me warm at night
Just keep me off the brink
I have learned the only way to turn the tide
Is keep him at arm’s length, 'cause

Pre-Chorus

Bridge:
If you let me down easy
Boy, you’d still let me down
Tell me why try to fly
If I always hit the ground
Said if you let me down easy
Boy, you'd still let me down
Tell me why to fly
If I always hit the ground, somehow

Chorus

Get Lost
(M. Palmer)

Verse 1:
Whenever something’s too good to be true
It’s always a fantasy
That’s how I feel when I’m here holding you
So are you real or just a dream?

Pre-Chorus
Your touch still makes me shiver
I talk but my lips still quiver
These butterflies just won’t go
I try to be in the moment
Trust I’m the one that you’re wanting
I hate that I’ll never know
But I know

Chorus:
I still get lost in your eyes
Bit more than I realize
When I’m around you
I can’t breathe ‘til he kiss me
But I can’t tell if he
Gets lost in me too

 


Verse 2:
I’d gotten used to this still broken heart
For me love ends in pain
But what we built hasn’t fallen apart
So can I come in out the rain?

Pre-Chorus

Chorus


Bridge:
So baby do you wanna ride with me
So baby do you wanna hideaway
So baby can you make me scream your name
Cuz I get lost without you
x2

Chorus


Inevitably
(M. Palmer)

Verse 1:
You’re like a daydream I pray never ends
I’m enchanted by the view
Behind your brown eyes
Underneath your skin, there’s a soul I know is true

Pre-Chorus:
So let me count, me count the ways
That I want you and I can’t wait
To share my life with you every day
Cuz you’ll be mine inevitably
So tell me

Chorus:
This ain’t infatuation
Baby it’s the real thing
I could say without hesitation
You’re where I wanna be
I been dreaming of you
Still dreaming of me?
Bet we end up together Inevitably



Verse:
How is everyday better than the last
Since I've had you by my side
You're the best teammate
Anyone could ask for
I dreamed you into life

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
It's inevitable that you
Gonna be a part of me
You might not know it now
But one day you gonna see
You'll hear it in my voice
And the way that your hear beats
That we ain't got a choice
Inevitably

Chorus


The Boy Who Hates Everything
(M. Palmer, D. Scott)

Verse 1:
This where I start to see
Cracks in our foundation
All ain’t seems to be
It’s like the floor is shaking
Does he need this dark cloud that he’s made
Does he have to rain on my parade

Pre-Chorus:
'Cause no one is good enough
And nothing is quite to his liking
If I love it sure enough
It’s just not what he’d call exciting
Don’t know how to win this game I’ve never played
But aren’t you supposed to love me anyway?

Chorus:
Thought that I was the exception
Thought that I could be his cure
One thing he’d never question
But boy now I’m not so sure
If he finds comfort in his darkness
Then there’s nothing you can do
Cuz the boy who hates everything’s
Gonna wind up hating you



Verse 2:
He loves his image more than me
So damn condescending
But baby I’m too old to be
Acting or pretending
Like I’m someone else to fit his mold
His warm heart’s turning oh so cold

Pre-Chorus:
Guess I’m not good enough
Guess I’m not quite to his liking
If I love it sure enough
It’s just not what he’d call exciting
Don’t know how to win this game I’ve never played
But aren’t you supposed to love me anyway?

Chorus

Bridge:

It’s like I turned around
And he was someone else
Someone who never smiled
Someone who never felt
It's like I’m in a race
I never meant to run
And the look his face
Says “we're under the gun”


Break-Up
(M. Palmer, DFRNS)

Verse 1:
All you need is time
All you need is space
Boy that’s what you said
To me
It’s been far too long
You’re so far away
And I’m all alone
Again

Pre-Chorus:
I don’t know why I believed you
And all the lies you told
I watched our love turn see through
This shit is getting old
I act like I don’t need you
And you treat me so cold
Everyday

Chorus:
Cuz every time I wake up
I think about our break-up
And the way that you just left me behind
And every time I look up
My world is so damn shook up
Cuz you loved me then you’re leaving me blind
If light’s at the end of this tunnel
I can’t see it with these eyes
Cuz every time I wake up
I think about our break-up
And I feel like I’ve been losing my mind, my mind

Verse 2:
Like the minute hand
Moves much slower than
It did in the past
Tonight
We’re grasping at straws
Every time I call
Conversation running dry

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
And it feels like I’m falling
But I’m screaming your name
And you still hear me calling
But you turn me away
X2

Chorus


Whatever It Takes
(M. Palmer, DFRNS)

Verse 1:
Sticks and stones won’t break us tonight
You’re stronger than you know
You’re not alone cuz I’m on your side
I’ll be your hand to hold

Chorus:
As we run like the wind
We fight ‘til the end
Our love wasn’t meant to break
And these lights in our eyes
Tell me we’ll survive
We’ll do whatever it takes
Tonight

Verse 2:
They’ll cut you down and try to hurt you
They'll poison you with lies
But you shine bright like stars above do
So let’s reach for the sky

Chorus

Break:
They can’t outrun this love
Boy we’ll leave ‘em dust
Cuz we’re never giving up
They can’t outrun this love
Boy we’ll leave ‘em dust
Cuz we’re never giving up

Chorus


Give Me You
(M. Palmer, DFRNS)

Verse 1:
The things that you do
Make me feel a fool
When I’m up all night here by the phone
Just waiting on you
I think I know why
You leave me out to dry
Boy you want the power and you know
I’ll take it in stride

Pre-Chorus:
You telling me no but really mean yes
You say I should know but I must confess
That I’m so lost and at what cost
You wanna be hard, I wanna be soft
I wanna go in, you wanna go off
I can’t keep up, just give me love

Chorus:
Boy, just give me you
Why do we play these games
I’ll jump through your hoops
But they drive me insane
All I wanna do
Is kiss & love on you baby
You’re what I’m into
So just give me you

Verse 2:
I’m hearing you say
You want me to stay
And if that’s the truth I’ll stick with you
But you’ve gotta change
My heart’s on the line
So don’t waste my time
And always be true cuz if you do
You’ll always be mine

Pre-Chorus 2:
You telling me no but really mean yes
You say I should know but I must confess
I can’t keep up, just give me love

Chorus

Bridge:
Don’t make me miss your velvet kiss
Don’t make me miss your velvet kiss
Don’t make me miss your velvet kiss
Don’t make me miss your velvet kiss, tonight

Chorus


Teardrops
(M. Palmer)

Intro:
You don’t know how bad you got me baby, baby
You don’t know how bad I want you baby, baby
X2

Verse 1:
Taking up my time
Running through my mind
Why don’t you just come here
Take off all your clothes
Let me whisper those
Sweet nothings in your ear

Pre-Chorus:
I’ve been waiting far too long to make love to you
Can we make this fantasy come true
Cuz dude

Chorus:
He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He’s the song in the car I been singing don’t know why
He’s the song in the car I been singing don’t know why
He’s the song in the car I been singing don’t know why I do

Verse 2:
Boy let’s go too far
Feel the heat and our
Bodies dripping with sweat
Won’t you take it
I’ve gotta make this a
Night that you won’t forget

Pre-Chorus 2

Chorus

Bridge:
Let me tell you that I’m thinking about you
Dreaming bout you all night long
And I wanna be, I gotta be
Inside your arms
I wanna do what I’m not supposed to do
You got a man but all I want is you
Tonight, tonight
I’m gonna freak your body right
Won’t you meet me under the covers
Tonight you’re gonna be my lover

Chorus


Only Happy When It Rains
(M. Palmer, D. Scotty)

Verse 1:
Some people get all the luck
I want his kiss and I wanna fuck
But for my man, it’s just not enough
We gotta fight if we making love

Pre-Chorus:
But lately I been driving myself crazy
I wanna be his baby no matter how much this shit pains me
I can’t take him throwing things and punching walls
And cursing me
God damn I’m so ashamed

Chorus:
He’s only happy when it rains
He’s only happy when it’s complicated
When I’m on beat my dude is syncopated
He’s only happy when it rains
I think he gets off on the pain
He’s only happy when the room is spinning
And when I feel like the whole world is ending
He’s got a smile up on his face He’s only happy when it rains

Verse 2:
Am I fool or a masochist
When he hit me it felt like a kiss
So damn good but I’m so scared of it?
I’m locked in love and I can’t break this shit

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
I can’t sleep, I can’t lie
I can’t fuck, I can’t cry
Cuz  you broke me down now I’m numb inside
And I’m drowning in pain
I’m so goddamn ashamed
I can’t leave this house so forget my name
And I’m gon’ take these mirrors down
Tonight I am no longer proud
Of the face I see when the silence gets too loud

Chorus


Snow
(M. Palmer, DFRNS)

Verse 1:
You’ll see no tears fall from my eyes
Cuz you ain’t here but I’ve got my pride, my pride
Pushed love away most of the time
And I’m so sick of the losing game
Of playing the fool but who can I blame

Pre-Chorus:
This heart that would beat
And jump out its seat
Is now turning back to stone
If that’s what it means
To love somebody
Then I’d rather be alone

Chorus:
Cuz like the falling snow
Boy your love has left me cold
We were oh so beautiful
And it finally felt like home
But seasons change
We melt away like the snow

Verse 2:
Could feel the chill there on your breath
I loved you still the day you left, you left
Me on the ground, no words were said
But I could tell from your vacant stare
That I’d fall down from walking on air

Pre-Chorus:
This heart that would race
And jump out its place
Is now turning back to stone
Don’t think I could take
Another heartbreak
Boy I’d rather be alone

Chorus

Bridge:
You brushed me to the wayside
Stole the light out of my eyes
Can’t find the good in goodbye
Your touch used to make me melt
Now it’s the coldest that I’ve felt
This rain has turned to my hell
Just like the snow

Chorus


Free
(M. Palmer)

Verse 1:
I was so young and so afraid
When times got tough I walked away
Convinced we’d never be the same
You’d drink too much and want my kiss
I’d treat you like you don’t exist
Tell me who’s it benefit

Chorus:
I thought we’d fade to black
No turning back
Be better off without you
Our ending was so tragic
But the fact is, boy
I hate that we’re through
When you broke my trust
We turned to dust and tore in two
But what’s become of me
Guess breaking free means that I’m free to miss you

Verse 2:
You know your voice reverberates
Inside my head like yesterday
I feel for you but I’m still in pain
Cuz you were flawed by all accounts
But did I have to cut you out?
I guess it shouldn’t matter now

Chorus

Bridge:
It’s like walking through hallowed halls
(Remembering my life with you)
My teardrop stains upon the walls
(The words you said still ringing true)
Swore I was sleeping with the enemy
But now I see
The enemy still lives inside of me

Chorus
