Track Name: Over You
I don't know why I feel this good
About the situation.
When you walked out you took away
A part of me I needed somehow.

But now I'm back up on my feet again
And I don't need you anymore.

You made me cry when you left me,
Just like you wanted me to.
And even then I thought that our,
Our time together ended too soon.

But now I'm back up on my feet again
And I don't need you anymore.

Don't know why you lied. Don't know how you tried.
Don't know what you think about the mess you left me.

Even though it hurt I know I've felt worse
Even though I thought that it would last forever.

But now that you've gone I can carry on
Living my life as I wanted to before you.

So now I feel fine 'cause I know I'm over you.

So now you're gone,
But I don't mind,
You're probably breaking someone elses heart.
And I don't need you anymore.

Don't know why you lied. Don't know how you tried.
Don't know what you think about the mess you left me.

Even though it hurt I know I've felt worse
Even though I thought that it would last forever.

But now that you've gone I can carry on
Living my life as I wanted to before you.

So now I feel fine 'cause I know I'm over you.
Track Name: Everything Changes
Yesterday I was sitting round on the ground
Listening to the sounds all around me.

Yesterday I was listening to the birds, listening to the bees,
Branches swaying in the summer breeze.

The sun in the sky, the moon there at night;
Everything changes.

The smile on her face, the frown in it's place;
Everything changes.

Now today the sun is here, summer's getting near.
It's that time of year, let's go outside.

And today lets go to the park, wait 'til it gets dark.
Shooting stars like sparks cross the night sky.

The sun in the sky, the moon there at night;
Everything changes.

The smile on her face, the frown in it's place;
Everything changes.

And today, sun is gone, seasons moving on
Never seems to stay for long.

And today the rain is pouring down my window pane
But i know it's gonna go again.

The sun in the sky, the moon there at night;
Everything changes.

The smile on her face, the frown in it's place;
Everything changes.
Track Name: A Little Too Little Too Late
You called me up the other day,
You thought that we'd be ok.
I guess you'll have to wait
For a better day, I say:

Problems that we had the last time,
Did you think they'd be fine?
Some were yours and some were mine,
But you crossed a line. I don't know why.

When you broke my heart, you broke my trust,
In other people, but I'm not fussed.
You say you're sorry but its just a little too little too late.
It's a little too little too late.

So now iv found somebody new
I think i could love like I loved you.
You know your sorry is overdue
And it won't make our love new

When you broke my heart, you broke my trust,
In other people, but I'm not fussed.
You say you're sorry but its just a little too little too late.
It's a little too little too late.

So you want to know why I hide behind
This wall in my mind?
Well I guess I'm scared that I might find
Another one who's unkind.

'Cos the greatest curse of a broken heart
Is that in time it will start
To heal again and set you up
To get knocked down, bad luck.

'Cos when she broke my heart she broke my trust
In other people, and I just
Don't wanna get hurt but I guess,
It's a little too little too late. it's a little too little too late.
It's a little too little, too late.
Track Name: I Am Yours
I, I am yours.
And you, you are mine.

And I will always be there.
I will always be there for you.

We, we are one.
We, we are one.

And I will always be there.
I will always be there.

Though we are apart,
You will always be with me,
In my heart.
Track Name: I Can't Swim
Uninspired after 3:00am,
My bed it looms both gift and curse;
If I can sleep it will help me mend,
But lying in the dark I miss you worse.

We used to be so close, us two,
I used to see you all the time.
I always thought id catch you if you fell,
But you leapt and let your fingers slip through mine.

And you are floating away from the shore.
And you are floating in a boat with no oars.
And I can't swim, I cant swim.
No I can't swim out to save you anymore.

I never understood what you did back then,
I always thought that you were a fool.
but now I find myself on the other side,
I think i feel the same as you.

You were like a ray of sunlight
Coming through on a cloudy day;
A glimpse into a world not my own,
But even the brightest sun passes on a cloudy day.

And you are floating away from the shore.
And you are floating in a boat with no oars.
And I can't swim, I cant swim.
No I can't swim out to save you anymore.
