Track Name: You Made Your Own Bed
Fever's just another word for love, she sighs
Biting into an apple and hits the ground, like Snow White.

Shaken by the sound she hears at night, findin'
Her knees, her hands, her heart, her sense of sight, is weakened.

Chorus: And you said: you made your own bed
and you said....
And you said: you made your own bed
and you said....

You forgot to tell her that you cared, instead
Of shaming the adult you thought was there, unaccepted.

You've crushed her soul, her every little dream, you're tryin'
To convince them that you didn't say those things, you're lyin'


Bridge: And forging feeling somehow all the things
That are broken, go unseen....

Track Name: Nice To Meet You
Started as a speck of light
Curled up in warmth so tight.
I couldn't love you more, if I tried.

You cam and the three of us cried.
I won't let go, I will hold tight.
You know I've been waiting for you my whole life.

And of course it's you
I knew all along
You came and I knew
That you were the one.

And I can't wait
To get to know you.
It's so nice to meet you.

Dancing with you late at night.
To show you that everything's alright.
Keeping you safe in my arms, you'll do fine.


And down to the bone, to the core
I am whole, I am yours.

Track Name: Cannot Explain
Couldn't help myself and found that
I was drawing in the sand.
Picturing the day when you
Held me in the palm of your hand.

I watched you as you left that day
And tears came to sweep me away.
You been to my heart and back
And now I'm addicted and want you to stay.

But I can't forget
The day you came
And I can't forget
The way you said my name

And I can't forget
But I cannot explain.

The sun is beating harder now
And it's warming my right up inside
And the moon is playing games at night
And telling me that I'm way too shy.


No I cannot explain
The way you said my name
No I cannot explain
The way you said my name

But maybe it's the way,
Your voice, it rang
And maybe it's the way
You did not hesitate.
