Track Name: You
I was young, we were strong, you raised me up
You were there for me
You made a home, a single mom
Though times were rough I had everything
We were the best of friends
Never went a day without you
By my side, you were the queen of my world
And I never say these words, but it's true 

That it was you that pulled me through
And I would trade it all just to be back home
And it was you, only you
Now that your gone I feel so alone

I grew up, things got rough, pushed you away
Spreading my wings
You were tough, I was out breaking the rules
We had our beefs
Thought I knew everything
Thought that I could live without you
Well I should take that as a lesson learned
Cause in the end that wish came true

And it was you that pulled me through
And I would trade it all if you came back home
And it was you, only you
Now that your gone I feel so alone
Track Name: Giving Up
I really wonder how
Our love became a tug of war
(Head is spinning around)
'Cause things are far worst now
Than they ever were before
(I can do so much better)
Just one thing I ask of you baby
Play it cool not complicated
(you're tearing me up)
You're fine as hell but you're so dangerous
Playing sweet & calculated
Oh, I just want you to know that
I'm giving it up on love
I've tried but the pain is so deep it cuts
I failed at the puzzle, I'm breaking up
Frankly I think I've had enough
Track Name: Cold
Winter came and you left me freezing
And I'm sitting in the dark still waiting on the phone to ring
I should move on but I'm still feeling weak
I'm so numb, can't feel the earth beneath my feet
Yeah, Isn't it funny how love can go frigid
You were gone so fast I was blowing in the wind
After all this time never thought I'd see the end 
You're making me think I'll never love again
Please return my calls, I can't make sense of it all

You have my heart wrapped up in chains
I'm feeling less than I am worth
And as the distance grows
My god I want you more than you deserve
never thought I'd feel this pain
You were the center of my earth
I kinda feel you don't deserve it 
So cold

This bed is so cold, your side is still left untouched
I'm dreaming of you, reality hurts too much
now didn't I hear you're seeing someone new
tell me why I ever put my trust in you
No apology, do you ever think of me?

Is he sleeping by your side as I wander late at night
That's so unfair to me, don't you change our destiny
I really never saw the curve
What a cold way to burn
I've been hurt, and I've been pushed off to the side
See now, I've gotta get better, I shouldn't want you in my life
Track Name: 2012
Now this city is a cancer 
But the force won't let me leave this crowded slum
All the people stand around
Can't seem to get beyond the doom about to come
All wages go to trading
But we're left with minus gaining
What a loser
Can't save any money
All of we just start to worry, retribution

That's why I'm singing ohhhh
This world is a slum
And any hope that I had ever wished for is already gone

I took the Boeing overlooking the atlantic just for fun
I was looking for a better life
But all I seem to see is credit crunch
You spending all my money
Getting richer, babies dying
Are you clueless?
One decade overturning, same routine
Now are we learning wealth pollution
Track Name: Against The World
These days it's hard to find someone to love
once you find them you don't want to give up
And now I know that we're both alone in this
it's just me and you against the world
And there's me and there's you
It's just me and you against the world

And, what am I supposed to do
the alarms are going off in my head
and It's dangerous, yes It's complicated
We're the only ones who get it
the only ones that want this
the only ones who believe in love

It's just the two of us getting into love
It take two of us to change the world
I've got you you've got me
It's just me and you
Against the world

Oh you got me so crazy in longing
and I know it's wrong but so right
and I'm holding you, I have been dreaming
and I can't let you go now, you're mine

Now what am I supposed to do
the alarms are going off in my head
Track Name: I Just Called (Interlude)
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
Track Name: Sad Love Song
When I met you I was on cloud nine
Brighter songs were in my head when you were mine
All that changed the day you said goodbye
The pain of losing you is bad I wanna cry

Cause my life had never been that good
Now I'm begging like I know I should
Please hear my heart

What can I do to right this wrong
I need you baby see I'm not that strong
I'm begging you let's carry on
Don't leave me singing this sad love song
Now baby I know I was wrong
You got me singing this sad love song

Why did I ever push your love away
I took the bait and I regret it every day
See, I'm a selfish man and I was weak
This dog has got to change his ways now hear my plea

See I wish I never fucked it up
Now you're leaving and I'm all torn up
Please hear my heart

I don't understand me
Yes I've got a problem
Sexting all the time
Coming home three in the morning
I'm bawling, baby give me one last warning
I'll bring you all the riches you can call me Victor Newman
I swear I always mess it up like an idiot
I'm serious I'm done with all these hoes that in dealing with
Singing like I'm dying
Take a player out of misery
You hearing me?
I'll sign it in a card, sealed, delivered
That's truth

Cause my life has never been that good
Now I'm begging like I know I should
Please hear my heart
Track Name: Tha High
See I, I've got a good chemical rush
And the high is making me feel like I'm loved 
'cause I'm hooked on this and I want it to come inside
And I don't care the form or mental effect
It's my therapy don't you want to get in on this
Well I bet you want it and I'm taking you on this ride
So I say take a quick trip, say you're coming my way
I'm playing with a devil don't keep me waiting 
Ready for a thrill and I'm getting anxious
Grab the wheel baby don't make an exit

Baby, I'm taking a ride on life
It's crazy but it feels so good inside
I'm speeding and I'm taking a risk tonight
I need a hit, I'm feeling weaker without it

See I, I thought we were friends
Why am I wearing so thin
I can't stand the skin that I'm in
And your love, it feels like a sin
Why did I make a commitment to this
Why did I give in?

Hey doctor doctor, help me 
oh I think I've been fooled 
Cause everything I though was real
Turned out to be a muse
My head is spinning
Hit the breaks now, what can I do 
I'm shook cause the urge is making me nauseous 
I ain't stuck with the flu
I'm blue in the face, my heart is running a race
My hands are trembling
I don't know what to do
But I am crying cause I want it
I've got nothing to lose
Don't wanna seal this wound
Got me singing the blues
Track Name: FTW
City lights
Telephone lines
Record machine
A taste for green, I'm poor
Late nights
Early sunrise is taking its toll
The price for wanting more
I've gotta be on the winning end
Call in sick today
Won't let this get away
It's the last round, I've got my feet on the ground

You can take this as a warning
There's no room for losing
and I won't back down for anyone
I'm not going under
I am making a play for the win

Some say it's part of the game
The harder it gets, the more you lose your soul
But I say it's better that way
You gotta be tough to prove you want it more
Taking it to the edge
Push this thing ahead
Get my daily bread
Say what you will, I'm going in for the kill

You can take this as a warning
There's no room for losing
and I won't back down for anyone
I'm not going under
I am making a play for the win

BTW
It's part of the game
The harder it gets, the more you lose your soul
But I say It's better that way
You gotta be tough to prove you want it more
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Be Alone
It's 4 in the morning
Can't sleep, I wake up to silence
Feeling really cold here beside me
I just want you to be here
And this is the first night
How can I make it to next week?
I'm strong but inside I feel so weak
I'm stressed, losing weight, I'm uneasy 
I'll be home here waiting with a bouquet
It's to the point that 

I don't wanna be alone
Your around the world out working
But the money means nothing to me
I just want you here with me (where you should be)
I just want you to be (where you should be)
I just want you here with me (where you should be)
I just want you to be

I should be patient
The best man that you ever dreamed of 
But here I am acting so anxious
I'm sending letters to you
Skype is 5 hours behind, I'm just so in love
I should just get on a plane 
Show up to your place with a ring
I'm a mess and I need to stop dreaming
Oh baby, say the word and I'm running to you ASAP

If you happen to call me
And I don't pick up the phone
You better call back 20 minutes later
By then I better be back home
Cause it's been 2 weeks, 7 hours, 13 minutes
Since the day you went away
And I'm still waiting, my heart is beating for you
I need you right hear today my baby
