Track Listing:

I guess you could say I'm one of those girls
That's always been with one of those guys
You know the type
Like right now, he sleeps while I write

But it's better than crying
I'm worn out from trying
From loving a man who always makes it clear
I'm not welcome here
Just when he's hungry or frisky
or needs something cleaned
And you know what I mean

But not tonight
'Cause come the morning light, oh
I'm gonna love myself more than anyone else
Believe in me, even if someone can't see
The stronger woman in me

I'm going to be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, never, no,
'Cause there's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman in me

Light bulbs buzz,
I get up
And head to my drawer
I wish there was more
I could say
Another fairytale fades to gray
I've lived on hope
Just like a child
Walking that mile
Faking that smile
All the while
Wishing my heart had wings

Well from now on I'm going to be
The kind of woman I'd want my daughter to be, oh

I'm gonna love myself more than anyone else
Believe in me, even if someone can't see
A stronger woman in me
I'm gonna be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
I won't lose myself again, never, no
'Cause there's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman

This is me, packing up my bags
And this is me, headed for the door
And this is me, the best you ever had
I'm going to love myself
More than anyone else
Believe in me even if someone cannot see
There's a stronger woman in me
I'm going to be my own best friend
Stay with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, never, no
'Cause there's a stronger woman
A stronger woman
There's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman in me,
Yeah...




We've being doing this word dance
together for some time I know.
We’ve treating love like a battlefield
and taking it slow.

Will you blink?
What do you think.
The union we propose
Is dangerous I know.

'Cause love is a game until it's played
And if it's lost, it can't ever be saved.
We have heaven to gain and hell to lose
And the difference is up to me and you.
So if you will, I will stop saying I won't
And start saying I do. I do.

Life can take a long time
If you make the wrong choice.
But time sure seems to fly by
When I hear your voice.

The stakes are high,
How we will find
The courage to believe?
We will succeed.

'Cause love is a game until it's played
And if it's lost, it can't ever be saved.
We have heaven to gain and hell to lose
And the difference is up to me and you.
So if you will, I will stop saying I won't
And start saying I do.

Well our hearts are locked inside an iron box.
We're both too afraid to reveal our most tender parts, oh.

'Cause love is a game until it's played
And if it's lost, it can't ever be saved.
We have heaven to win and hell to lose
And the difference is up to me and you.

So if you will, I will stop saying I won't.
Stop saying I can't.
Is that what you said?
Cause if you did, I do. I do.

If you want me to.
I do.
If you want me to.
If you want me to.
If you want me to.
If you want me to.
I will try, I will try, I will try.
I do.




I'm sitting here lately
Thinking about us maybe
Taking a break was a good thing

'Cause we were just children
Following a feeling
Not knowing love could wither away

But looking back it passed so softly
But common strangers we could not see
Just tired of fighting tired of hanging on

But now that you're gone I can see
That love is a garden if you let it go
It fades away before you know
And love is a garden it needs help to grow
Ours is starving but there's still hope
Come on, baby, and I'll feed ya on kisses
Come on, baby, let's make up for what we've been missing
Come on, baby, baby, come home

Living with each other
Soon we discovered just how tryin' it could be
You'd stay out all night and you'd say I was uptight
And soon we were only fighting

But looking back from this side now
It's hard to imagine wonder how
I thought it was you who was always wrong
But I can see
That love is a garden if you let it go
It fades away before you know
And love is a garden it needs help to grow
Ours is starving but there's still hope
Come on, baby, and I'll feed ya on kisses
Come on, baby, let's make up for what we've been missing
Come on, baby, baby, come home

Well, tough job, broke car, mean boss,
And our moms all squeeze like weeds they get in the way
Now you're gone and I'm here,
I'm missing you dear,
We took a break what a mistake
What we needed to do was just make some room for me and you.
Cause I can see

That love is a garden if you let it go
It fades away before you know
And love is a garden it needs help to grow
Ours is starving but there's still hope
Come on, baby, and I'll feed ya on kisses
Come on, baby, let's make up for what we've been missing
Come on, baby, baby, come home

Let's throw away our old cell phones
Let's just stay in bed
Let's just stay home
Come on baby, baby come home

I'm sitting here lately
Thinking about us maybe
taking a break was a bad thing




Rosey and Mick

Mick came home late last night
He drank enough beer to take the edge off a knife
And she opened the door, looking older than before

He said, "Rosey, you're too good a girl"
She let him in, he lifted up her dress
Like an apology began to kiss her breast
And he felt much relieved as the ceiling fan tapped out a broken melody

And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said,
Making up was always your favorite part
Well, I ain't young no more
And I'm sorry will not mend a broken heart."

He came home threw his things on the floor
She worked up the courage to say what she never had before
But the words got lost inside
He got that look in his eye as the sun went shining on

And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said,
Making up was always your favorite part
Well, I ain't young no more
And I'm sorry will not mend a broken heart."

Well the judge knew well Mick was a violent man
She got a few headlines, she got a slap on the hand
And there ain't no villains and there ain't no heroes
People on both sides of the tracks trying to add up a whole bunch of zeros
And time marches on until it's all gone

And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said,
Making up was always your favorite part
Well, I ain't young no more
And I'm sorry will not mend a broken, a broken heart."




I haven't been out lately
There's too much going on
My friends say I'll go crazy
If I don't get out and have some fun
So I put on my best dress
I confess, felt good I gotta say
I stepped into the dance hall
What I saw took my breath away

Anyone but you
Anyone but you
I was hoping I would run into
Anyone but you

Through the smoke and neon
I saw you look my way
Here come those same old feelings
I thought had gone away
But I know that I am strong
And as the night draws on
Should you ask to take me home
I'm sure that I'll say no to…

Anyone but you
Anyone but you
I was hoping I would run into
Anyone but you

I'd like to fall into your arms
With all your charms
But we both know how that would end
It would end with me crying
And you leaving again

Anyone but you
Anyone but you
I was hoping I would run into
Was hoping I would run into
Anyone but you




This feeling in my heart
Can't start to describe what you mean to me
Sweet mystery
When I'm lying in my bed
the thoughts that fill my head
Well, they're ecstasy
Baby can't you see

I think I will,
I think I might let go
Let myself fall
It does not really matter
If we speak at all
'Cause in the darkness
I swear, I hear the language of your heart
And it says, "Thump Thump,
Let's jump,
Let's fall in love"

Well this house is not home
If I'm left alone
Without you in my bed
I roll around like a marble instead
And you're holding me tight
All through the night,
I miss you by my side
No, it's not right

So, I think I will
I think I might let go
'Cause it does not really matter
If we speak at all
'Cause in the darkness
I swear, I hear the language of your heart
And it says, "Thump Thump
Let's jump
Let's fall in love"

Melodies appear
Everytime your near
The scent of your skin
Moves me, oh, sin
Your skin, well it does me in
So get yourself over here

Because it does not matter
If we speak at all
'Cause in the darkness
I swear, I hear
The language of your heart
And it says, "Thump Thump"
And it says, "Thump Thump"
And it says, it says "Thump Thump"
It says "Let's jump,
Let's fall in love"




I watch you while you're sleeping
Messy hair, chest bare
Moonlight on your skin
I wanna breathe you in
In the silence words come easy
I can tell you now just how simple it's been
To let you in
Don't move this mood is a painting
We'll never find the same thing

Love do not make a sound
Melt into me now
Two become one

Love is so close to hurting
With a shake we could wake
From our own dreaming
We must make a vow
'Cause I have waited a lifetime
Now is the right time

Love do not make a sound
Melt into me now
Two become one

Like a bird owns it's wings
Like song belongs to melody
You belong to me
I fold your arms around me
Let you flesh, your breath, your love surround me
Oh you feel like home

Love do not make a sound
Melt into me now
Two become one
Oh let's make time stand still
Let this moment last until
Two become one

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oohhhh
Become one [x2]




Call me soon as your plane gets in
I'll tell you where to take the cab
Can't talk now in the middle of this crowd
But baby, I miss you so bad

I got a bottle of wine
Some stolen time
Key to a room where you can be all mine

Till it feels like cheating
Till it feels that good
Nobody's leaving
So let's get it understood
Oh you could be a stranger
It's been that long
There's something 'bout the danger of feeling like we're doing
something wrong

Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating

Don't say a word when you walk in
We ain't got time for that
Kiss me hard like we're about to sin
And there ain't no going back

For a while we'll be free, just you and me
Making promises life won't let us keep

Till it feels like cheating
Till it feels that good
Nobody's leaving
So let's get it understood
Oh you could be a stranger
It's been that long
There's something 'bout the danger of feeling like we're doing
something wrong

Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating

Keeping the spark going is an everyday fight
So I sent the kids to your mama
And baby, we got all night

Till it feels like cheating
Till it feels that good
Nobody's leaving
So let's get it understood
You could be a stranger
It's been that long
There's something 'bout the danger of feeling like we're doing
something wrong

Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating
Oh yeah, baby
Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating




[Jewel]
I walk around the room
It's funny how these silly things remind me of you
And I have this hole in my chest
But I guess you know me good enough that you know the rest

[Jewel & Joe Firstman]
If it makes it all right,
I'll spend the night with you dear
Only reappear
Cause everything remind me of you
And That's just gonna take a little getting used to
That's just gonna take a little getting used to

[Joe Firstman]
And when I had to ask you why,
I'd remind you of what you said to me
And how you said it to me that night.
And if you had to ask me when,
I'd remind you of how you kissed me
When I held you back then

[Jewel & Joe Firstman]
But if it makes it all right,
I'll spend the night with you dear
Only reappear
Cause everything reminds me of you
And that's just gonna take a little getting used to
That's just gonna take a little getting used to

[Jewel]
Love is built kiss by kiss
Just like a house, brick by brick,
So it has to be undone

[Joe Firstman]
And you got your sad eyes to hide behind
And you got your lies and Lord knows that I've got all mine

[Jewel & Joe Firstman]
If it makes it all right,
I'll spend the night with you dear
We should never disappear
Cause everything reminds me of you
And that's just gonna take a little getting used to
Cause everything reminds me of you
And that's just gonna take a little getting used to
That's just gonna take a little getting used to




Oh the night draws on and on
Now that you're gone
Now that you're far away
My thoughts seem to stray

I sit alone and stare
Even though you're not there
Even though you're not mine
Forever I'll pine

You may call me foolish
Oh I try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No, I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

Sit alone all day
Hours pass that way
Wishing you were here
Holding me dear

You may call me foolish
Oh try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

At night when I'm home
I listen for the phone

Waiting for it to ring
At night in my bed
Thoughts go wonderin'
If you feel the same

You may call me foolish
Oh try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No, I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

Oh the night draws on and on
Now that you're gone
Now that you're far away
My thoughts seem to stray

I sit alone and stare
Even though you're not there
Even though you're not mine
Forever I'll pine

You may call me foolish
Oh I try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No, I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

Sit alone all day
Hours pass that way
Wishing you were here
Holding me dear

You may call me foolish
Oh try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

At night when I'm home
I listen for the phone

Waiting for it to ring
At night in my bed
Thoughts go wonderin'
If you feel the same

You may call me foolish
Oh try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No, I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

Oh the night draws on and on
Now that you're gone
Now that you're far away
My thoughts seem to stray

I sit alone and stare
Even though you're not there
Even though you're not mine
Forever I'll pine

You may call me foolish
Oh I try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No, I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

Sit alone all day
Hours pass that way
Wishing you were here
Holding me dear

You may call me foolish
Oh try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you

At night when I'm home
I listen for the phone

Waiting for it to ring
At night in my bed
Thoughts go wonderin'
If you feel the same

You may call me foolish
Oh try and you know it'll be true
But I don't wanna be loved
By anybody but you
No, I don't want to be loved
By anybody but you




The doorway frames you
a picture perfect silhouette,
blue sky of regret
enough to hang you
Your legs seem to tremble
At least I imagine that they do
Then again, it's probably easy for you

But please, don't open your mouth, my dear
I can read all the signs
I can take it from here
There's no need to explain,
It's perfectly clear

Yellow wallpaper peels makes
a strange halo around your head
It's funny how I notice
These stupid things instead
You say something awkward
But I wish that you wouldn't
A whole life of You wish you could's
but just couldn'ts

But please, don't open your mouth, my dear
I can read all the signs
I can take it from here
There's no need to explain,
It's perfectly clear

So I try not to think to much
it only just makes me mad,
Spent half my life loving you
Think of all the love that I could've had

Five years worth of kisses
Are packed in your bags
This tiny moment fits
All the big things we ever had
And I can't quite pinpoint
When it left or what for
Love always steps lightly
Away from the door

Please, don't open your mouth, my dear
I can read all the signs,
I can take it from here
There's no need to explain,
No, there's no need to explain,
It's perfectly clear
