"Destiny and IHOP"

Some three thousand, six hundred and fifty days
You have remained in a corner of my mind
Day one found me an akward teenager
And you, a mystery man lighting up his Camel
And when you offered me a cigarette
I lit you up, took you in-and let you fill my spaces
I won't forget the freedom of being sixteen
Flying down backstreets in your turqouise truck
I can only hope that day three thousand six hundred and fifty one
Will offer us the same freedom we knew when we met

"Too Late"

You feed me all the best lines
If I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times
It won't happen again, and I love you
Did you love me when I hit the ground
Will you love me when I'm not around
I do love you, but it won't happen again
I'll think of you when I'm letting him inside
Hope you'll find someone to keep you warm at night
Or maybe you're better off on your own
Because even when I was with you, I'd never been more alone
Know that I've cried my last tears for you
If you see me out, please walk on by
You've hurt me for the last time

"I Missed Christmas?!"

Only one day sober
But still
I feel alive today
I can't say it is a good feeling
But still
It is mine to feel
And I will
I'll wake tomorrow
Face the sun
With only two days sober
But still

"Sticks and Stones"

What do you want from me?
It's never enough to get better
You just wait for the sickness
Did you know it is you that is making me sick?
You and your snide little remarks
You think I am not in my right mind
But your words hurt never the less
I would rather you hit me in the face one good time
Then keep on putting me down
I am already as low as I've ever been
What do you want from me?

"Happy Christmas"

If I had all the money in the world
I'd still write you a line
'Cause all the money in the world
Could never quite describe
A daughter's love for her mother
And a mother like mine
Would rather have a line from her girl
Than all the money in the world
And so Happy Christmas Mom
I want you to know
That my love for you is endless
If I had a thousand wishes
I'd give them all to you

I hope you'll think of me in the morning
When you are rinsing the sin from your dirty mouth
I hope you'll feel the burn of loss
Swishing around in the mouth, that I will never kiss again
I hope you know you have spit me out for the last time

"7 Days"

It worries me that I don't have words for you
That we are forcing something that isn't there
But in the meantime, go ahead baby-pull my hair
Tell me you love me, after all this time (ha)
I guess I could write about your eyes
But I can't find the lines to describe
What is missing for you in mine
Maybe someday I'll make you weak
Afterall it has only been a week
But you say we have accomplished more in our time
Than some people have in their entire lives
I guess this is passion at it's best
We love to hate eachother
You say nobody bothers you like I do
And I take that as a compliment
A gift that was well meant
