Track Name: The Last Deal
Promised you the heart
All wrong from the start
Broken, shattered, dead
Never should have said

Fix it back again
Mend what was broken
Did it come out clean?
Never should have seen

And that's the last deal I'll ever make
Won't give you anymore
Got nothing else that you can take

Never should have said
Listened or trusted
Never should have known
Now everything is gone

And that's the last deal I'll ever make
Won't give you anymore
Got nothing else that you can take
Track Name: As I Fall Apart
You only come around when I know you're not gonna come around
You only like me when I know I don't like you
You only tell the truth after I've untangled all your lies
You only try when there's nothing you can do

You only give it up after I've already given ground
You only round when I don't want to fight with you
You only take a chance after I've already seen defeat
You only risk it when I know we're gonna lose

As I fall apart
I think back to the start
There's no sense to any of this
And there's less and less that I miss

You only think it's funny when you know I don't want to play around
You only have the time when there's no time for you
You only say you're sorry when I've given up on apology
You only give me hope when I give up on you

As I fall apart
I think back to the start
There's no sense to any of this
And there's less and less that I miss

As I fall apart
I think back to the start
There's no sense to any of this
And there's less and less that I miss
Track Name: Baby Teeth
Maybe there's no one who knows why she kept me with her
At least there's no one to say, a secret no one will betray
And maybe there's no one who sees the girl who walks alone
Maybe it's better, she'd say, if they ignore me anyway

Maybe there's no one who knows just what happened to me
At least no one's made a claim
No one's coming just the same
And maybe no one sees me dream the night alone
Maybe I'll never escape, maybe I'll never get away

Sometimes when she laughed at me,
She'd rattle mother's baby teeth
Just a reminder, she'd say,
For why she bothered keeping me

If I'm quiet, it's add though they can't even see me
I seen to slip past everyone even in the bright of day
And maybe that's why she thinks I keep the night alone
Nothing can keep me from you, nothing will scare me away

Sometimes when she laughed at me,
She'd rattle mother's baby teeth
Just a reminder, she'd say,
For why she bothered keeping me
Track Name: Tamed
He can't remember when she tamed him
Doesn't even know her name
She's never even reached to touch him
But he knows the girl's to blame

And he knows she’ll never feel the same

So he gets closer, just to scare her
Just so he can see her fear
Just so he can know it's nothing
Just to know she wouldn't care

But in her eyes, that's not what he sees there

She talks to him like he's a person
Just an ordinary man
She wants someone to want to save her
She wonders who might understand

And just like that, he’s at her command
Track Name: Captivated by the Night
I am one captivated by the night
I am one captivated by the night
I take passing refuge, but in vain,
to once again be tortured by the light

Hidden from the interloper’s reign
Hidden from the interloper’s reign
I must make in shadows my retreat
and await the moon-rise once again

It could be out of loyalty or spite, but
I am one captivated by the night
Couldn't tell you if it's wrong or right, but
I am one captivated by the night

He rules from a tyrant’s golden seat
He rules from a tyrant’s golden seat
I would sling my arrows toward the sky
If ever it could bring on his defeat

But when the moon has risen proud and high
Yes, when the moon has risen proud and high
To claim her rightful throne above the night
that bitter king won’t rule this diamond sky

It could be out of loyalty or spite, but
I am one captivated by the night
Couldn't tell you if it's wrong or right, but
I am one captivated by the night
Track Name: Little Miss Pout
She’s got a nice dog
Her boyfriend’s okay, too
She could turn this whole place
Into a zoo

And all it takes to fell her
Is a single word from you

She’s got holes in her face
She’s covered with tattoos
She is always preceded
By her attitude

And all it takes to fell her
Is a single word from you

And all it takes to fell her
Is a single word from you
Track Name: You Can Trust Me
You taught me what it is to want
And you taught me what it is to long
And you taught me what it is to go without
And you taught me what it is to walk away
Well I’m back, babe, and I promise I will stay

I know you think that it’s a bad idea
And I know you think that this will never work
And I know you don’t even want to take the chance
And I know you think that there’s no reason to even try
But there’s a reason, babe, and I’m gonna show you why

Baby, turn around
And I’ll keep you safe and sound
Come on stay
You can trust me

Baby, turn around
And I’ll keep you safe and sound
Come on stay
You can trust me

You know I never meant to do you wrong
And you know I never meant to do you harm
And you know that I never wanted you to regret
And you know that you’ve got every reason to blame
But I’ve change, babe, this time I’m not the same

Baby, turn around
And I’ll keep you safe and sound
Come on stay
You can trust me

Baby, turn around
And I’ll keep you safe and sound
Come on stay
You can trust me
Track Name: Pieces
What was it he said
The last time I saw him
What was it he said
Right before she took him away
Why can't I recall
What he used to tell me
Why can't I recall
All the things that he used to say

Will I ever see you again
Will I ever get to hear you say my name

And how did he look
The last time I saw him
And how did he look
Right before she took me away
Why can't I recall
What he used to look like
Why can't I recall
His face when he would look my way

Will I ever see you again
Will I ever get to hear you say my name
Will I ever see you again
Or will it never, will it never be the same

And what do we do
Now that we're in pieces
So what do we do
Now that we can never escape
Track Name: Just a Little Silence
Please don't cry little baby
Please don't cry no more
Please don't cry little one
I'll fix you up better than before

You know how hard I'm working
And you know I'm almost through
You know how hard I'm working
And every bit of it's for you

I'll give you the sweetest tongue that ever did sing
I'll give you the sweetest heart that ever did beat
I'll give you the sweetest eyes anyone has ever seen
Just give me a little silence my darling
Just give me a little silence my darling

You know it's hard to work here
Between all your cries
You know it's hard to focus
Singing silly lullabies

When all you do is whimper
All you do is complain
I'm trying to do my best here
While all you do is cry in pain

I'll give you the sweetest tongue that ever did sing
I'll give you the sweetest heart that ever did beat
I'll give you the sweetest eyes anyone has ever seen
Just give me a little silence my darling
Just give me a little silence my darling
Track Name: No Sooner Did It Begin
I walked along the moonlit trails
In silence I'd remain
I thought I was all by myself
When I heard him howl my name
I was scared, I couldn't run
But I could understand
The curse he suffered under
That could change him from a man

So he wasn't my hero
So he was no prince
But he was not the animal
You made him to be
And he was no villain
But that makes no difference
For in the end I was the one
To bite the hand that feeds

You said he couldn't know better
You said he did no good
You said if I were older, then
I might have understood
Always spitting venom
Always fighting tooth and claw
You said I'd be the death of you
You always knew it all

So he wasn't my hero
So he was no prince
But he was not the animal
You made him to be
And he was no villain
But that makes no difference
For in the end I was the one
To bite the hand that feeds

I knew he'd cause me heartache
The moment this began
No matter how I loved him,
Couldn't save him in the end
