Track Name: Dear Diary
Dear Diary, you know that I can’t sit still
oh Long enough to ever get this entry filled

What if I was sick of myself?
Would you nurse me back to health?
‘Cause I’ve got a case of “fumbling along” and “what am I doing here”?
I know you’ve seen it too, so tell me what should I do?
It’s about time for something new

Dear Diary, I think my brain needs to vacate
I’m thinking somewhere warm, to maybe find someone to relate

What if I was sick of myself?
Would you nurse me back to health?
‘Cause I’ve got a case of “fumbling along” and “what am I doing here”?
I know you’ve seen it too, so tell me what should I do?
It’s about time for something new

You know I was thinking of him, such a sweet sweet thought
Like wanting dessert and then thinking that you better not
He’s the kind that is so hard to find, giving me such peace of mind
Yeah the very best kind

Dear Diary, disregard my last entry
Turns out my cure was that I needed something sweet

‘Cause I was just sick of myself
And you nursed me back to health
‘Cause I had a case of “fumbling along” and “what am I doing here”?
I knew you’d seen it too, you told me what I should do
And now it’s on to something new
Track Name: New Canvas
Did he hold you really close?
Did he whisper sweet nothings in your ear?
But as my own mother said, you can’t only love what you know
since then I’ve been out and finding more

When I say, it’s okay
I really mean it
I say
If I was right from the start
and If life is an art
It’s time for a new canvas

We used to always have this saying
that you reap what you sow, but only more
When the tide has finally turned, look at what the waves will dig up
where footprints used to stand not long ago

When I say, it’s okay
I really mean it
I say
If I was right from the start
and If life is an art
It’s time for a new canvas

Its so hard to let go
When it is all that you know
but we’re only alive when we paint from the inside

That’s why I say, it’s okay
and I really mean it
I say… I really mean I really mean it
When I say, it’s okay
I really mean it
I say
I was right from the start
and your life is an art
and now right from the start
your life is an art
Track Name: Close to You
Once you get yourself set right up in heaven
won’t you let me in on the fun
Cause every time that you are mentioned
I can’t help it, I’m on the run

Now I’m feeling really close
ya I’m feeling really close to you… to you… to you

Once you get yourself set right up in heaven
won’t you let me know what its like
cause lately I’ve been getting defensive
when its mentioned only that you might

Now I’m feeling really close
ya I’m feeling really close to you
And oh now your near
And I can’t help but hear you go away go away
Oh and my feelings hurt
Got my pinky’s in the dirt
Saw you go away go away
Saw you go away go away
Na na na na na na na na

Feeling really close
Feeling really close to you

And oh now your near
And I can’t help but hear you go away go away
Oh and my feelings hurt
Got my pinky’s in the dirt
Saw you go away go away
go away go away
Na na na na na na na na
Track Name: The Story
These folds of skin around my eyes only crinkle when I cry
Somehow you bring me back down to size, even though the words you feed me are always lies

Tell me something tell me something,
What if I don’t like the taste
tell me something was all this time a waste

When a book comes to the end
you don’t sit back and pretend you’ve never read it before
You still remember the story
like how you used to adore me, watch me walk right out that door

Ive always loved tragedy, until I saw it happen to me
See the dust on my shoes, its been a long time since I last saw the sun shine

Tell me something tell me something,
What if I don’t like this tale
tell me how to set this sail

When a book comes to the end
you don’t sit back and pretend you’ve never read it before
You still remember the story
like how you used to adore me, watch me walk right out that door

Let me go
Tell me something that’s not fair
Tell me something that’s not fair
Tell me something that’s not fair

This book has come to the end
so don’t sit back and pretend you’ve never read it before
You’ll always remember the story
like how you used to adore me, now watch me walk right out that door
Track Name: Keeping Score
The weight of the world has been sitting on
the top of my shoulders since about 21
that was the last time I saw your pretty face
And now your standing right here in this place

Where were you?
I wanna know
Where have you been
been keeping score
where were you?
And how have you been?
I want you to know,
I‛ve been keeping score
Where were you, cause I‛ve been keeping score … score

Its been a long time wouldn’t you agree
I‛m not used to having someone compete with me
But rules are rules and I don’t want to play that game
I‛m not that girl anymore, but you haven’t seemed to change
You play and play your games, she’s playing and playing

But where were you?
I wanna know
Where have you been
been keeping score
And where were you?
how have you been?
I want you to know,
I‛ve been keeping score

Winning is everything
It’s a high school feeling
Winning is everything
Do you get what I mean

I’ll admit it was nice to catch up again
I really wondered where you went every now and then
But I‛m not into burdens anymore
That’s part of the game when you are keeping score

So where are you? I just want to thank you
For carrying the weight cause I can’t bear to
Now where are you? Where did you go?
I want you to know I‛m not keeping score
I want you to know I‛m not keeping score
I want you to know that I‛m not keeping score…. Anymore
Track Name: Without Me
I’ve seen enough, enough of your face
to know it all and not be amazed
This empire I am building, the boss of it is me
it only goes as far as I can see

He wants to be solitary, and see what is left
when there are no promises that have to be kept
He just wants to be alone and try to be here without me

Without me, without me
without me, without me

And I have drowned here long enough
to know where, where the waters rough
And instead of a lifeboat, you’re swimming next to me
There is no bottom as far as I can see

He wants to be solitary, and see what is left
when there are no promises that have to be kept
He just wants to be alone and try to be here without me
So be solitary and see what is there
when there are no promises left anywhere
You’ll just want to be alone and always be here without me

Without me, without me
without me, without me

One day you’ll find inside its all alright
when you lose the courage and do it anyways
And then you find inside its all alright
to pick up the pieces and throw them all away
And be …without me
