Track Name: Shouldn't Be Thinking About You
it's been 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 days since we first met
and I've spent 1 2 3 4 5 6 long nights trying to forget
the way that you made me laugh and how alive I felt
the fact that I couldn't admit that I'm with someone else

I've got a life I'm trying to start
I've got a love who's got a good heart
I've got a plan, it's worked this far
I've got a million reasons why I shouldn't be thinking about you
I shouldn't be thinking about you

tried to convince myself it's okay to let this happen, I can handle it
I wouldn't cross that line, you and I would just be friends, completely innocent
but that was all a lie cause now I'm here with you
and I'm scared to death to admit the truth

I've got a life I'm trying to start
I've got a love who's got a good heart
I've got a plan, it's worked this far
I've got a million reasons why I shouldn't be thinking about you
I shouldn't be thinking about you

but what if I wake up fifteen years from now
to look back on my life and ask myself how I could have passed you by

I've got a life I'm trying to start
I've got a love who's got a good heart
I've got a plan, it's worked this far
I've got a million reasons why I shouldn't be thinking about you
I shouldn't be thinking about you
Track Name: Fighting Daylight
if love was strung on a wire up in the stars
one foot in front of the other on a tight rope course
I would balance forever to be with you, be with you

I would write you a million love songs
every verse for you, every word
I would hold you if ever you're cold
you can stay here with me when you fall asleep

I'll be fighting daylight, fighting daylight
I'll hold up the moon
I'll be fighting daylight, fighting daylight
till your dreams come true, I'll fight daylight for you

if love was lost out at sea in a raging storm
sinking into the deep, a thousand miles from shore
I would sail through the night, through the wind and rain
whatever it takes

I would hold you if ever you're cold
you can stay here with me when you fall asleep

I'll be fighting daylight, fighting daylight
I'll hold up the moon
I'll be fighting daylight, fighting daylight
till your dreams come true, I'll fight daylight for you

words can't say enough what I would do for love
everything and more

I'll be fighting daylight, fighting daylight
I'll hold up the moon
I'll be fighting daylight, fighting daylight
till your dreams come true, I'll fight daylight for you
Track Name: Diving In
you walked in out of the storm you were living in
and found shelter in my arms
we both agreed this was a temporary thing
you were just waiting for the clouds to part
but something happened on the road to nowhere
I broke all the rules

I fell for you, it hit me like a roll of thunder
rain came down, water rose out of nowhere
wait a second, let me catch my breath
I can't out run this flood so I'm diving in

I can't sleep, the heat of you breathing next to me
makes my mind race in the dark
all I want is to wake you, to make you understand
what you're doing to me

I fell for you, it hit me like a roll of thunder
rain came down, water rose out of nowhere
wait a second, let me catch my breath
I can't out run this flood so I'm diving in

can I tell you the whole truth
cause I want you to know
I love you, I need you, I need you
I don't want to let you go
please don't go

I fell for you, it hit me like a roll of thunder
rain came down, water rose out of nowhere
wait a second, let me catch my breath
I can't out run this flood so I'm diving in
Track Name: Fading Photograph
you're fading so fast
I can tell that this won't last much longer
the quiet gets stronger
each time I reach for you
you pull away a little bit more
I'm losing sight of you
you've already got one foot out the door

just like a shifting shadow, a fading photograph
there you go
just like a shifting shadow, a fading photograph
all the colors I used to know fade to white and black

I'm not sure when the switch got flipped
when the lights went out
when you became just a silhouette
of the person I fell in love with
but now I'm stumbling in the dark
a million miles from where we started
feels like we're worlds apart
is there a map for the broken hearted

cause now you're like a shifting shadow, a fading photograph
there you go, there you go
just like a shifting shadow, a fading photograph
all the colors I used to know fade to white and black

you were violet, red and green
gold and silver
with the bluest eyes I've ever seen
you were everything to me

but now you're just a shifting shadow, a fading photograph
there you go, there you go
just like a shifting shadow, a fading photograph
all the colors I used to know fade to white and black
Track Name: With You
what if this doesn't work out
what if this all falls apart right before my eyes
I'd be lying to say I'm not scared
I'd be lying to say I don't have my doubts
for once in my life, I want to speak up
I know what I want

I want to dive in
I want to run fast
I want to love deep
I want to laugh
with you

what if the dreams I'm dreaming
turn out to be too big for reality
I'd be lying to say I'm not scared
I'd be lying to say I don't have my doubts
for once in my life, I'm gonna speak up
I know what I want

I want to dive in
I want to run fast
I want to love deep
I want to laugh
with you

and if this doesn't work out
and if this all falls apart
at least, I'll know I tried

I want to dive in
I want to run fast
I want to love deep
I want to laugh
with you
