Track Name: Lady Boo
There is no better feeling than
you and I just hold hands,
and is it just my imagination
or is it better than when it began?

Days spent together,
it doesn’t feel like wasted time
any more than playing music
our love’s like keeping time

They wouldn’t think to look at us as the symbol of love, but the power is true.

I don’t know what those other guys are looking for,
but the search I leave to them
because she’s all I ever wanted.
What more could I expect.

And, oh, it’s not even a question,
I say to her “do you”
and she lets me be just who I am
that sweet Miss Lady Boo
Track Name: Right Back
Right back, we’re sliding right back to when our love was new,
Because you want me back and it drives me mad and I’m watching you
But it’ll be just like before, it won’t work out and the things you do still bother me

But if there’s one thing that I miss
It’s feeling you so close to me
and I find I can’t escape the memory
of you and I in ecstasy

Right back, we’re sliding right back to when our love was new,
Thought it was black and white, but my black and white found another hue
But it’ll be just like before, it won’t work out and we’ll both act irrationally
Because I want too much and you expect too much, you expect too much of me

Always held out my hope we’d stay together,
Until your friend told me you were cheating.
But I guess that just makes us even,
for what went down between your friend and me.

Right back, we’re sliding right back to when our love was new,
Because you miss my touch and I miss your touch, even though I don’t miss you.
And it’ll be just like before, it won’t work out and we’ll make each other angry
but you know it won’t stop, no it just won’t stop, it’ll never stop you and me
Track Name: Let It Ring
Another Saturday night alone, waiting for your call
It always seems like I’m the one waiting for an answer
When you hit me up you’re never really there
Because you only say the things you think I wanna hear

However much I want you, inverse reflection
Of how much I respect myself
I’ve had about enough and now I know for sure
that the feel of your touch won’t ever be the cure

I’m smart enough to know how you’ll behave.
No you’re not worth the time or the strength I gave.
I don’t have need of your company.
You won’t ever ever ever have control of me

Call me on the phone when it’s late at night saying you can’t bear to live alone
But the way you speak to me it’s like I could be almost anyone
I don’t appreciate the way you say you’ll change and then go and do the same damn thing
So the next time that I hit you up, don’t be surprised if I let it ring

It’s such a bad habit, waiting by the telephone
And what you’re doing with me
Do you even realize the way you make me feel?
Or am I just another heart that you can steal?

Call me on the phone when it’s late at night saying you can’t bear to live alone
But the way you speak to me it’s like I could be almost anyone
I don’t appreciate the way you say you’ll change and then go and do the same damn thing
So the next time that I hit you up, don’t be surprised if I let it ring

I can’t keep waiting for you
Even though you want me to
I can’t keep waiting for you
Even though you want me to

Call me on the phone when it’s late at night saying you can’t bear to live alone
But the way you speak to me it’s like I could be almost anyone
I don’t appreciate the way you say you’ll change and then go and do the same damn thing
So the next time that I hit you up, don’t be surprised if I let it ring
Track Name: Same Thing Again
Always seem to find myself in the same old place
Looking for some brand new person to fill that empty space
This time things will be much better, this time I’ll know what to do
I look for someone so different but they’re like you, just like you

Is it a coincidence? Have I maybe lost my mind?
You didn’t seem so embittered, didn’t seem unkind.
At first it seemed so promising, but it was not what I was thinking of
Thought I heard my heart speaking, but what I thought was love was not love

And when I feel this lonely, look at what comes my way
Judgement goes out the window, a laugh or smile is all it takes
You’re the imperfect copy of someone who did me bad
This time I’ll do much better. 2nd chance at what we had.

Really no use in fighting for the sake of you and me
Thought I should call this one early but I like to wait and see
Instead of a real person, you were a challenge I could overcome
Or maybe just an irritation, to keep me from feeling numb

I’m not the one with a problem
I’m just a victim
I’m not the one with a problem
I’m just a victim

Always seem to find myself in the same old place
Looking for some brand new person to fill that empty space
This time things will be much better, this time I will win
I thought it would be so different but it’s the same, same again
Track Name: We're Both Insecure
-We’re both insecure
Fearful, still, of love
Hope to find parts of ourselves inside this new someone

-Neither of us sure
of what we really want
Make no sudden moves it might cause both of us to run

Sick of isolation
Such a cursed chain
but I’d rather be under lock and key than to risk my heart again

-If you walk away
I won’t know for sure
If you saw the light in me cuz we’re both insecure


-We’re both insecure
You the same as me
Don’t come any closer I’m afraid of what you’ll see

-Both so full of hope
To hear loves sweet refrain
To open up to you would put an end to all these games

Fear of situations
Keeps on closing doors
Hope my desperation is easy to ignore

-If I walk away
I hope you’ll be assured
That this could be much easier when we’re not insecure


-We’re both insecure
Maybe that’s okay
I hope that I can see you on some other sunny day

-Feel your sweet allure
Hope you feel mine too
Might be something there if we stay honest, brave, and true

Lock eyes cross the table
It all came down to this
Hope that I can drop the act while I’m in your sweet kiss

-We’re both who we are
This I know for sure
Love can be so difficult when we’re both insecure
Track Name: I Couldn't See You
In another life, I had a heart that burned all night and day
It was searching for another who could teach it to be tamed
I believed only perfection could chase my loneliness away
but perfection isn’t real, it’s just a silly game we play

You would come to me and visit on a cold and windy day
And the warmth of joy and laughter chased those winter’s blues away
But summer came and turned my young and restless heart away
I couldn’t see you until today

You probably thought me heartless and unkind
The truth is I was foolish young and blind
I should have stood beside you but instead
I’m responsible for every tear you shed

Well it seems that you’ve moved on and built a life without my love
But on all these lonely nights I find it’s you I’m dreaming of
I regret the way I left you, and I’m so ashamed to say
I couldn’t see you until today.
Track Name: Won't Be Long
I get the feeling that you’re here all alone tonight
And the look on your face says you wish you’d stayed home tonight
Musta had lots of guys coming up to you
Saying that they’re wanting you, tryna press up on you, baby

I know that my approach is laughable, but you seem like you’re affable, just hope my game is passable.
I’ve been told that I’m a flirt, a little sweetness never hurt, no

Well now, I can’t say that we’re bound for life
But you and me together, ooh, it feels so right
We’ll probably get together, yeah, it won’t be long
Just give me ’till the end of this song

I could have sworn I saw you looking over at me and my friends, don’t try to pretend
You ought to be a little more careful, girl. You don’t know what kind of message you’re gonna send girl
Cuz I can tell that you’re mean and you’re wicked and I bet it makes men furious
But I like what you’re saying, I guess I'm curious.

Well now, I can’t say that we’re bound for life
But you and me together, ooh, it feels so right
We’ll probably get together, yeah, it won’t be long
Just give me ’till the end of this song

You might think that I’m not your type
But you can’t trust your vision in the dead of night
I trust my intuition, no, it can’t be wrong
I’m thinking that it won’t be long

I can’t be wrong, I can’t be wrong, hope that I hope that I’m holding you close by the end of this song
Track Name: How U Treat Me (2017)
Can’t remember the last time you treated me right
Had so much fun on the first time
But then you got up out of my sight
And when I said that I loved you
You probably didn’t even care
But that’s impossible for me cuz of the times we shared

How u treat me
How u treat me
How u treat me
Never did a single thing to hurt you

Hate to see you go off by yourself now, but you weren’t very nice
Used to like to spend your time around me, but then you’d be the first to start a fight
and if you crawled back on your knees, well, I don’t know what I’d do
I guess the way you treated me would be the way that I treat you

How u treat me
How u treat me
How u treat me
Never did a single thing to hurt you
How u treat me
How u treat me
How u treat me
Even if you leave, I wouldn’t desert you
