Don't Care 02:27
I don't care If the sun doesn't shine I don't care If it rains all the time I don't care If you leave me behind I don't care If you'll never be mine I don't care If the wind doesn't blow I don't care If the river doesn't flow I don't care How far you go I don't care If you never come home I don't care Who's climbing the walls I don't care If the government falls I don't care Whose name you call I don't care About you at all

Don't Go Yet 02:24
I took too long to make up my mind You never think you'll run out of time I had a dream I was running ahead But I couldn't even get out of bed Don't go yet We've hardly even met I'll forget But not just yet It's hanging over both of our heads You only love me at the end of a text I'll be happy with the things that I've got Forget about the things that I've lost But don't go yet We've hardly even met I'll forget But not just yet

I knew a girl when I was young She lived across the street When I was bored for a little fun I’d put drawing pins on her seat We were all in love with her She was kind and she was sweet But she always seemed to see the worst in me I met a girl in my college years Filled with hope and filled with grace When I’d had too many beers I’d curse her to her face I was so in love with her She was all I’d ever need But she always seemed to see the worst in me I met a girl and I married her Settled on settling down I was too weak to carry her But I could always put her down I was so in love with her But love can be so mean And she always seemed to see the worst in me People always telling me Don't lead a lonely life When I’m dead you can bury me Next to someone else’s wife When I’m at the pearly gates Heading for eternity I hope they don’t see the worst in me

So I'm turning back again I always come right in the end Tickets burned and bags unpacked Goodbyes never seem to last I will stick around Til the heavens hit the ground And the devil's looking down On me Old lovers carried in your head Letters underneath your bed I don't know what's wrong with me I keep saying things that I don't mean I will stick around Til the heavens hit the ground And the devil's looking down On me The empty days and sleepless nights You must be doing something right I don't know what I should be This is all still new to me Self-respect's not much to lose Falling in love is my excuse But what if when you try your best You're no better than all the rest I will stick around Til the heavens hit the ground And the devil's looking down On me

I went and watched the sun go down The only road that leaves this town It's nothing but a motorway Hard shoulders all the way But I will get it right someday And even when you call my name Trying to get the world to change All my days are rearranged Underneath they're all the same But I will get it right someday Another lesson I can't learn Trying to get the world to turn I thought I heard somebody say It's good to go the wrong way Well I will get it right someday

Same Mistake 03:12
I stole your wings So I could fly And told you stories Of clear blue sky I left you sleeping So I could wake And I went and made The same mistake There is no end That I can see All my friends Got bored of me There's no point giving What I can't take I'll just go make The same mistake The words that hide Behind these words Are hard to find and They can't be heard I only realise What's at stake After I've made The same mistake If I could change If I could try I'd keep no secrets And tell no lies I'd find those pieces That I can't break And I'd never make The same mistake
7.
I go at red lights Stop on green Cut out the women In the magazines Set em up And I knock em down And I can turn a smile upside down If there's a party I don't wanna go I don't like people I don't know Late at night I get scared I turn around and there's nobody there Took out a loan And I paid my debts My only currency Is cigarettes Who was I When I was young Don't tell me: it's on the tip of my tongue Stayed up all night Saying the morning prayer Acted angry But I didn't care I can only do What I did before And blame it all on the luck of the draw I'm not your problem anymore Blame it all on the luck of the draw
8.
I will not change This is our story These are our names The ones we're calling I'm still that same boy that you loved The one you thought the whole world of I did not change And I'm not the one to blame You did not go You just got scattered This is your home It doesn't matter You're still that same girl that I loved The one I thought the whole world of You did not change And you're not the one to blame Say love is blind I won't believe it When I close my eyes I'm sure I see it We've got the same hearts as before We're still the people we once were We did not change And we're not the ones to blame

I went and got four beers from the village store If you were here I'd've got four more Went for a walk with an old guitar Over the fields and through the farm I sat by the river where no children play Down where the banks all fall away There's nothing better that I can do Than sit right here, just waiting on you Throw my body in the river Put a stranger in my clothes Cos I will love you forever I suppose I think I'll have another week off work Go tell the doctor my back still hurts I can see better when I'm laying low I'm gonna go where the water goes Throw my body in the river Put a stranger in my clothes Cos I will love you forever I suppose

Another Page 02:46
When you start to show your age It's time to turn another page Cos you've still got something left Still trying to try your best And I know you're gonna change But I will always know your name Even when you're far away And I know we both got things wrong It won't matter when we're gone So for whatever it is worth I hope you get what you deserve And no matter how you change I will always know your name Even when you're far away All the places you will go All the things I'll never know Other people I will meet But I will still be incomplete And no matter how we change We will always know our names Even when we're far away

Sober Life 02:51
I'll paint a picture And you can write a song We'll make a list of all the ways we went wrong And if you catch me lying Just know this is true All I ever wanted was you I looked for the right words All I could ever find Were different ways of saying goodbye And I remember thinking As I walked away I only ever wanted to stay But I think I did something wrong I think I left you for far too long So if you find me sleeping Shake me awake I've had as much dreaming as one man take Always indecisive But I've changed my mind I'm leaving all the right things behind And I think I've done something right I think I've conquered the sober life So I'll paint a picture And you can write a song We'll make a list of all the ways we went wrong And if you catch me lying Just know this is true All I ever wanted was you

Sat by the riverside, skimming stones I'd never felt so alone Thinking of the people I used to know But it's a long way home I'll write a letter to those young pretenders Tell em the grass is still green I'll write a letter to those young pretenders Will they write a letter to me? Sat by the riverside, kicking leaves Wipe that heart off your sleeve You can take the high road, you know where it leads It goes far away from me Go write a letter to those young pretenders Tell em the sky is still blue Go write a letter to those young pretenders Will they write a letter to you? Sat by the riverside, passing time I never saw it go by Look at all the people we left behind Without even saying goodbye We'll write a letter to those young pretenders You know they look so in love We'll write a letter to those young pretenders Will they write a letter to us?
