Track Name: Way With Words
You’ve got a way with words, my darling.
You’ve got a way with words and me.
You’ve got a way with words, my darling.
No one competes with your vocabulary.
When the sun rises, you greet me good morning
And you tell me bout all your crazy dreams.
And as it sets, you tell me about your day at the office.
And not one single detail bores me.

But in the silence, in the quiet, your eyes turn a shade of mean.
And your lips keeps talking to someone, but your eyes are talking to me.

You don’t have to say a word, baby, cause I know that you’ve been down
You don’t have to say a word, my darling cause for now I’ll be around
Born to ignite and light on fire conversation
You impress every new soul you meet
Raised to recite your monologues with perfect dictation –
You’re so quick … to think on your feet.

But after your curtain call, no rehearsal tomorrow –
Can we just breathe while we sway to the beat?
My disco ball spinning, tiny mirrors reflecting our feelings -
On a room full of just you and me?

You don’t have to say a word, baby, cause I know that you’ve been down
You don’t have to say a word, my darling, cause for now I’ll be around
This bed was made for two, this bed was made for you
So slide in silently…
Track Name: Boy Loves Me So Much
Boy loves me so much he turned off his phone
Boy loves me so much he left me alone
Boy loves me so much he got overwhelmed
Boy loves me so much, he couldn’t be found

Boy loves me so much (Sha la la la la la, look at me)
He loves me so much! (Sha la la la, happy as can be)
Boy loves me so much (Sha la la la la la, finally free)
He loves me so much (Now that I got a boy in love with me!)

Boy loves me so much, he promised his soul
Boy loves me so much, I’m not letting go
Boy loves me so much, he just disappeared
Boy loves me so much, I dried all my tears

Boy loves me so much (Sha la la la la la, on my knees!)
Boy loves me so much (Stop making this so very hard for me!)
Boy loves me so much (I want my baby in bed with me)
Boy loves me so much (His whereabouts are a mystery)

Sha la la la la la, on my knees
Stop making this so very hard for me
I want my baby here in bed with me
His whereabouts are a mystery

Boy loves me so much, it just isn’t fair
Boy loves me so much that he’s unaware.
Track Name: You Did a Number on Me
You did a number on me, you did a number on me
I gotta be seen to be believed, cause you did a number on me.
Mama’s Sunday School is praying for me; she hasn't heard from me in weeks.

Friends try to take me out for a drink, but my dark room's become sanctuary;
Cause you used to be here too, I used to be with you.
And no matter how dark the room, my heart would shine for two.

You’re right, I’ll be fine.
In my next life, I’ll be fine.
But for this time, I’m just slowing dying
Til my time finally comes,
Cause you were my number one.

You did a number on me, you did a number on me
I wear your pajamas in the street, put out your cigarettes in my sheets
This feels like my end. Please God, let this be the end.

You’re always right, I’ll be fine
In my next life, maybe I’ll be fine.
But for this time, I’ll be slowing dying
Til my time finally comes
Cause you are my only one.
