Never Learn

Chorus: Why am I in love with a girl Who treated me oh so badly? Why am I in love with a girl Who made me feel so sadly?
I can't get over you Don't know what I should do You leave me feeling down Then you come back around (chorus)
I thought I was over you But I still don't have a clue Why you came back this way And you called me up today (chorus)
I guess I'll never learn I don't wanna learn Guess I never learned I don't wanna learn (chorus)
I don't know why Don't know why Why?

Begin To Start

Say to me don't be hanging on If you won't go on Do I want to? Pray(?) to say Pray(?) to know Fight for me Won't let it go
Life confuses me-- can't find my way Out of here I think I'd rather stay (rather stay) I think I'd rather stay
Where do I begin to start? Begin to let you in to my heart? (?) when I look at you Cause I know (?) I know I feel it too
Life confuses me-- can't find my way Out of here I think I'd rather stay (rather stay) I think I'd rather stay (instrumental interlude)
When do I begin to start? Begin to let you in to my heart? They say to me don't be hanging on If you won't go on Do I want to?
Life confuses me-- can't find my way Out of here I think I'd rather stay (rather stay) I think I'd rather stay (2x)

GSF

Didn't have to be so mean to me I guess now I see how it's gonna be I'm joining GSF I've made up my mind Forget this thing called love It's a waste of time Waste of time
Girls ain't no good anymore Anyway Not for one second if I understood Why they do what they do Why they say what they say
Always happens to my friends It always happens to me It's taken me 19 years to finally see She said can't we just be friends It's just not working out Another broken heart That I can do without Do without
Girls ain't no good anymore Anyway Not for one second if I understood Why they do what they do Why they say what they say

Rock And Roll Girl

I don't know what to do Don't know what to say It hurts me to look up when she looks at me that way Oh, can't she see what she's doing to me
I thought that she was mine I guess I was wrong Seems she changed her mind Looks like she's moved along Oh, can't she see what she's doing to me
When I understood what she was trying to say I finally figured out that I was in her way Now I'm okay She wasn't too down with the rockin' routine She wasn't too down with the pain it brings Oh yeah She sprouted wings and flew away
I don't know what to do Don't know what to say It hurts me to look up when she looks at me that way Oh, can't she see what she's doing to me
When I understood what she was trying to say I finally figured out that I was in her way Now I'm okay She wasn't too down with the rockin' routine She wasn't too down with the pain it brings Oh yeah She sprouted wings and flew away

Let It Happen

I want someone to love A girl that when I think of Will put a smile on my face (smile upon my face) I wanna hold her hand I want her to understand There's got to be a better place than this world
Chorus: This is the best time of our lives Should I be thinking about that now She turns my world around And I let it happen everytime
I (?) little things (?) always seems to bring All the pain back in my mind (pain back in my mind) Which way to go Answers to questions I don't know (?) things that we can find Than this world (chorus)
(instrumental interlude)
(back to beginning)

So Kill Me

Losing my mind You've lost yours long ago (lost yours long ago) Wasting your time You want me to know (you want me to know)
But when you feel like killing me Just go ahead and I'll be there for you When you feel like killing me Just go ahead and I'll be there for you
Go ahead and try and understand me I'll try and understand you (try and understand you) It's hard not to be demanding Cause it is all so new (it is all so new)
So when you feel like killing me Just go ahead and I'll be there for you When you feel like killing me Just go ahead and I'll be there for you (instrumental)
So when you feel like killing me Just go ahead and I'll be there for you When you feel like killing me Just go ahead and I'll be there for you

Want Ad

Need a kind of girl that knows A girl that likes to wear my clothes Someone who always buys me Coke A girl that laughs at all my jokes
Chorus: That's the girl that I wanna see Fall in love with me That's the girl that I long to know Oh, how I love her so
I need a girl who writes me songs And talks to Jesus all day long And the way she does her hair No one else can compare (chorus)
Probably meet her at a show And when I look at her I'll know That she is the one for me
(?) The one for me The one for me She's the only one The one for me The one for me She's the only one The one for me The one for me She's the only one The one for me The one for me She's the only one for me

Circumstance

Are you happy with your life? You make just enough to scrape by You pay the rent Your took a spin Where'd the last weekend go? You wasted all your (?) You don't remember where it went home now
(?) How can this be happening?
You might have the temporary superficial happiness That you buy with money you don't have Do you tell yourself it's just the first time? Maybe the last time Where(?) did your circumstance?
(?) How can this be happening?
Life is not a job or a career Living is not smoking and drinking beer (?) and not to take (?) it's yours, it's yours to (?)
(?) How can this be?
