Track Name: North Carolina
You've broken my heart,
for the last time this summer.
I heard you're movin' far,
to North Carolina.
You'll give up your home,
and you'll move to the Mountains.

The rain falls again.
I'm on my 15th line now.
I've been waiting so long,
to lay right beside ya.
We'll give up our homes,
and we'll move to the mountains.
We'll give up our hearts,
and we'll march into love.

I knew you when you loved me true.
You held your arms out and said,
"Please come to me."
I knew you when you loved me true.
I knew you when you loved me.
Track Name: Cover, Girl
Let's forget each others names,
and forgive ourselves for our mistakes.
I broke into your place.
You had a picture up with someone else's face.

I never can have anything.
I never have control of it.
We never got the timing right.
But lying in your bed:
One of the better things I've had.

We join a brand new crowd.
You ignore me but I am still around.
I saw you with another guy.
You were kissing him,
I looked down at the floor.

I never can anything.
I never have control of it.
But when we got the timing right, baby.
You lying in my bed.
One of the better things I've had there.

Do you still want me?
I'm looking for cover.
I'm looking for cover, girl.
Do you still love me?
I'm looking for cover.
I'm keeping my covers warm.
Do you still want me?
I'm looking for cover.
I'm looking for cover, girl.
Do you still love me?
I'm looking for cover.
I'm looking for cover, girl...
Track Name: In Life/In Love
In Life: I'll find another one.
But to fall in love.
Maybe once is enough.
In Love: I'll find another one.
But to fall in love.
Maybe once is enough.

Don't your problems
feel like they're blinding you like a child.
Now, open your eyes.
Let in this feeling.
Let it steer you into a smile.
Now, look who you are.
Track Name: What Might Have Been
9 o'clock and I'm waiting for you to call.
Don't be long cuz I don't sleep much.
When you're gone I twist and turn all the way.

But the new life comes and takes you away,
and I don't wanna say it, but I'm dyin' to say,
"What might have been."
Oh, what might have been.

There must be some place I can run
to finally get away from the thought,
"What might have been."

Another day and I'm waiting for you to call.
You got the thought that I don't think much.
But when you're gone I twist and turned all the way (all the way.)
Cuz the new life comes and takes you away,
and I don't wanna say it, but I'm dyin' to say,
"What might have been."
Oh, what might have been.

There must be some place I can run
to finally get away from the thought,
"What might have been

So hold on, hold on, hold onto her.
Hold onto her.

(Another day and I'm waiting for you to call)
Track Name: Christine
Christine,
I'm hoping you miss me.
I'm hoping you don't cry
when you think of me now.
And, Christine,
I'm hoping you'd kiss me.
I'm hoping I don't cry
when I think of my woes.

Go on.
Go on, give nothing.
Nothing at all.
And though I'm a tough one,
tough ones still fall.

You know you want it, girl.
You know I want it all.
You say you're moving on,
but I want to get over it too.
You say, "Sing it loud,"
But I'll sing it way too loud.
I wish you would call...
but I'm not around.
You'll get what I give to you...
