Track Name: Don't Give Up The Night
There she found me sitting in a parking lot
With a 40 in my palm
Drinking like I'm trying to forget
Or maybe remember how to hold my head high
Or maybe remember how to hold my head high
Little blonde feel low in a short dress Makeup from her lashes
Cutting down her face like a knife
We're both thinking the same damn thing
We're both thinking the same damn thing

Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Don't give up the night, give up tonight

Cuz you know better... Cuz you know better...

She was young, he was reckless
God bless it, made a mess when he left her
Feeling helpless she was ready to die
He told her that she was never gonna find love
He told her that she was never gonna find love
I've been selling my soul cheap for a fix
Shaking, trying to make sense of everything
Believe me, I try
We're both thinking the same damn thing
We're all thinking the same damn thing

Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Don't give up the night, give up tonight

Cuz you know better... Cuz you know better...

This is some mess we're in
We wanna to prove them wrong
Just to break even
Chin up, kid, go live the dream
Chin up, kid, go live the dream

Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Don't give up the night, give up tonight
Cuz you know better...
Track Name: Burned
Make me out to be
Make me out to be
A monster and a freak
A mess at best at l guess
That's love
Love, love
Find yourself in these
All these lies we lead In present company
Be what you want be
That's love
When will we learn?
When will we learn?

This is how we dance around the fire
Don't get too close
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
Careful now you're walking on a wire
Don't get to close
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
You're gonna get, gonna get burned

Old world social scene
Don't bite your thumb at me I play romance to please
Ravage me, savagely
Love...
Will this tragedy become a masterpiece
A pallet of lust and greed
Sounds like a recipe for love
When will we learn?

This is how we dance around the fire
Don't get too close
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
Careful now you're walking on a wire
Don't get to close
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
You're gonna get, gonna get burned

This is how we dance around the fire
Don't get too close
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
Careful now you're walking on a wire
Don't get to close
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
You're gonna get, gonna get burned
Track Name: The Other Man
I've been keeping it together
But it's wearing thin, wearing thin
This mess we're in, mess we're in
Short on patiences, there's no virtue
When you’re with him, you're with him
Just can't pretend, can't pretend

I've been putting up with it far too long
Wanna shout your name and I can't it's wrong
Temptations at your front door
And I'll knock, knock, knock, knock

Leave the other man, cuz I don't wanna be
Don't wanna be the other man
I don't wanna be, don't wanna be
The other man, the other man

This deceptions in our blood now
And it only you, and only you
Know what to do, what to do
This is vagrance
Without shame, don’t lie
You’re a criminal, criminal I’m a criminal, criminal
I've been putting up with this shit too long
Wanna drop your name and I can't it's wrong

Knock, knock, knock!

Leave the other man, cuz I don't wanna be
Don't wanna be the other man
I don't wanna be, don't wanna be
The other man, the other man

Can’t help myself, I’m a selfish one
Can’t fool myself, I’m the only one
I need you all to myself
So...

Leave the other man, cuz I don't wanna be
Don't wanna be the other man
I don't wanna be, don't wanna be
The other man, the other man

Leave the other man, cuz I don't wanna be
Don't wanna be the other man
I don't wanna be, don't wanna be
The other man, the other man

(be the other man) I don’t wanna
(be the other man) Can’t only
(be the other man) I’m always gonna (be the other man)
Track Name: This City
I am just another who's waiting
I'm just a crack in the pavement
Lights disguise a heartache like make up
They drive the dream that will make us
Or break us

Keep holding on, and on, and on
I'll crack before I cave
When I close my eyes I shine so bright
But these stars are far away
Keep holding on, and on, and on
I'll crack before I cave, I swear
I swear...

This city is so unfair
The streets are lit up
The hope is still there
I just need a little love, I swear
I deserve a little love, I swear

I keep my conscious in paper
I live my life like an anchor

I'll crumble it when I'm done with it
And throw it away
Cuz once I hit rock bottom
That's exactly where I'll stay
I'll crumble it when I'm done with it
And throw it away, I swear
I swear...

This city is so unfair
The streets are lit up
The hope is still there
I just need a little love, I swear
I deserve a little love, I swear

Turn off these blinding lights
Turn off these blinding lights
Turn off these blinding lights
Turn off these blinding lights

Turn off these blinding lights
Turn off these blinding lights
Turn off the lights, turn off the lights...

This city is so unfair
The streets are lit up
The hope is still there
I just need a little love, I swear
I deserve a little love, I swear
Track Name: The Weekend (Bad Habits)
You don't want this
So, don't call me out
I'm bad news
And everybody knows it, but no one ever says a single word

Hands racing
To catch up with your pulse
We get so close
It's gone before you know it like a shiver down the center of your spine

Bad, bad, bad habits

I'll confess in the weekend
Confess on the weekend
I may be a mess
But confess in the weekend
All these bad habits
Never stop, stop, stop bad habits

There's no shame here
But I'm not too proud
So reckless
And everybody knows it, but no one ever says a single word
It's all wrong
But it hurts so good
Yeah, it hurts so good, good, good, good
Bad, bad, bad habits
I'll confess in the weekend Confess on the weekend
I may be a mess
But confess in the weekend All these bad habits
Never stop, stop, stop bad habits

Oh, how our young blood boils in the heat of the night I'm a big, bad, cold­blooded thriller, let it ride
Chase me down like liquor, let it linger on your lips Go to church, born sinner, I ain't even gonna lie
Don't be shy just surrender to that hunger in your eyes
Feeling vicious on the dance floor, come on let it out, out, out, out, out Come on, let it out
I'll confess in the weekend Confess on the weekend
I may be a mess
But confess in the weekend All these bad habits
Never stop, stop, stop bad habits
Track Name: Turn You On
These sharp words have two sides, two sides
To cut my skin while severing new ties, new ties
Tell me, is that the way you like it?
Tell me, is that your game?
Tell me, is that the way you like it?
Tell me, is that your game?
Tell me...

Does this turn you on, love?
Does this turn you on, love?
To see me suffer, to suffer, to suffer (don't stop)
I need your body, your body, your body
So bad...

I've held those hands, damn baby, they're so cold, you're so cold
But we do this for the chill, trust me, I’ve been told, been told
Tell me, is that the way you like it?
Tell me, is that your game?
Tell me, is that the way you like it?
Tell me, is that your game?
Tell me...

Does this turn you on, love?
Does this turn you on, love?
To see me suffer, to suffer, to suffer (don't stop)
I need your body, your body, your body
So bad...

It’s quite likely I’m the one you need
You just might be more fucked up than me
Hold on tightly, leave some room to breathe
Either way you’ll squeeze the life from me

Does this turn you on, love?
Does this turn you on, love?
To see me suffer, to suffer, to suffer (don't stop)
I need your body, your body, your body
So bad...
Track Name: Reflections
Shoo girl, don't bother me
I’ve got the recipe
For disaster tried and truly faltering
Caked under fingernails that bleed backs
When we’re far too frail
Truth, I need jesus more than you could ever know
Yeah, need jesus more than you could ever know
Caked under fingernails that bleed backs
When we’re far too frail

Maybe girls don’t like when their boys don’t talk
But we sure won’t mind

I lost my reflection
I need some reflection
Some time to reflect on
Keeping it together, I feel like I am falling apart

Stone; I am shallow got a thing for
Pretty bones; quite hollow with a case of
Porous skin, don't lie when you can't hide the demons
That are wrapped inside
Maybe girls don't like when their boys don't talk
But we sure won’t mind

I lost my reflection
I need some reflection
Some time to reflect on
Keeping it together, I feel like I am falling apart

I've been doing it alone
I've been doing this for too long
For too long
And my heart aches
Breaks like glass from the mirror
Stuck in the soles of our feet
Our souls and our feet
Our souls and our feet

I lost my reflection
I need some reflection
Some time to reflect on
Keeping it together, I feel like I am falling apart
Track Name: Bring Your Love To Me
Lord knows this vicious tongue
Don't make the best impression
But I got it and you need and I won't be taking that back
Your stare could stop my heart
Shame was our only child
If I have to drink to keep it alive
I'll consume the whole damn night
Cuz you got it and I need it and I won't be taking that back

Bring your love to me, bring your love to me
We're not dead yet, this souls a bit lonely
Put me down softly, bring your love to me

Show me your precious skin
I'll form a new religion
We don't make love you and I
This worship this so damn divine
Cuz you got it and I need it and I won't be taking it back

Bring your love to me, bring your love to me
We're not dead yet, this souls a bit lonely
Put me down softly, bring your love to me

I'll be your man on the cross
Just keep warm in the midnight hours
I'll write your name on the walls
You bring the passion I will lay down my life

Bring your love to me, bring your love to me
We're not dead yet, this souls a bit lonely
Put me down softly, bring your love to me
Track Name: Lowlife
Keep keep up with thIs endeavor
I'll sin first, make you feel better
Stringing me along, I know what's going on
Got caught near the back of a bottle
You fell hard now swear you're a martyr
I'm seeing through it all, it's on the bathroom wall

Let's pretend you're not
The one I'll find under my sheets despite
I know you'll be under my sheets tonight
Now it's all my fault, now it's all my fault

If it wasn't for the lowlife's like us
You wouldn't have anyone to blame
Let's hear for the lowlife's like us
Let's hear it for the lowlife's like us

Love love
This role that were playing
I call it sex, you call it dating
Your shifting the blame, we're sharing the shame
Maybe that's what makes me the monster
So unsure, but such a big talker
When you split your lips

If it wasn't for the lowlife's like us
You wouldn't have anyone to blame
Let's hear for the lowlife's like us
Let's hear it for the lowlife's like us

Even if you're not
The one I'll find under my sheets tonight
You're always under someone's sheets in school spite
To put me to shame

If it wasn't for the lowlife's like us
You wouldn't have anyone to blame
Let's hear for the lowlife's like us
Let's hear it for the lowlife's like us
Track Name: Pray Tell
Keep it together we're preparing for the fallout
Under the weather, over­zealous, and it's all down
Hill from here, pills and heels
Do hinder grace, protect your knees when all the shit drops
Respect the trends, and buy new friends
While you're still on top
Above the curve, you'll never learn

Go ahead get, girl
Get, get down with yourself

Pray tell, did you ever find that life you were searching?
While you’re a hot mess drown in a cold sweat out on the ballroom floor

You shivered so hard that you made the windows shake
I said, you shivered so hard that you made the windows shake

Hold down the beat you're gonna need some time to reflect
On everything that led to this, no need hold back
Don't push repeat, keep it unique
There has to be someway to put this all in context
Perhaps a melody that fell apart and left you so flat
You missed the note that mattered most

Go ahead get, girl
Get, get down with yourself

Pray tell, did you ever find that life you were searching?
While you’re a hot mess drown in a cold sweat out on the ballroom floor
Go ahead get, girl, get down with yourself
Go ahead get, girl, get down with yourself
Pray tell, did you ever find that life you were searching?
While you’re a hot mess drown in a cold sweat out on the ballroom floor
