Track Name: Oh Me
Oh my, the heave of your sigh
Sometimes I think it's a beautiful thing
Oh my, the flash of your eye
Sometimes I think it's a terrible thing
Oh me, Oh Oh me, Oh me

Oh fright- the city's alight
And all I want to do is get to you
OK, the city's ablaze
And all I care about is talking to you

Baby butterfly- gotta stay alive
Gotta fortify- baby butterfly

Oh my, needle in my eye
For every small rejection that escapes your mouth
OK, live another day
For every small elation that you emanate
Oh me, Oh Oh me, Oh me
Oh me, Oh Oh me, Oh me

Baby butterfly- gotta stay alive
Gotta fortify- baby butterfly

I would lay down my bones for you not to be alone
I would lay down my time to lay down by your side
Oh my girl, sleep all day- would you have your life another way?
Oh my girl, sleep all the time- oh me, oh my
Track Name: I'm Only Going Back
I'm only going back to a place I used to be
I'm only going there one more time then I leave
I'm only lingering to touch it on it's pale cheek
don't mind me

Ok whose to say when you're weak
When you're brave? oooh
Ah Ah in your mind
what's gonna make you feel alright?

I just want to know my mind can leave
I just want to know myself from me
It's OK to to waste my time
to find out

OK, who's to say when you're weak and when you're brave?

I just want to know my mind can leave
I just want to know myself from me
It's OK to to waste my time
to find out
