Track Name: Now That She's Gone
I love a girl
she won't talk to me no more
she let me in
I couldn't give her any more

so every day I wake up standing
I walk around and try to smile
I got a new pair of running shoes
I'm clocking in another mile
I eat right
I do my yoga
I spend time with my friends
but I just wanna see her

I love a girl
she won't talk to me no more
she let me in
I couldn't give her any more

the story's not quite as simple
as I try to make it out to be
it was no fair to want from her
what she can't count on from me
and in the end I understand
why I won't get to make her smile
but I still want to see her

yeah I'm alive
and I survive
now that she's gone
yeah I get by
well I try
now that she's gone
still try to rock it on the weekend
now that she's gone
my heart is broke but it's gonna mend
now that she's gone

I love a girl
she won't talk to me no more
I let her in
she couldn't give me any more

the last time I sat beside her
I tried to show her how I feel
I wrote some words on a paper napkin
I tried to keep it true and real
she shook her head
she won't say nothin'
but I saw her crack a little smile
someday I hope to see her

yeah I'm alive
and I survive
now that she's gone
yeah I get by
well I try
now that she's gone
still try to rock it on the weekend
now that she's gone
my heart is broke but it's gonna mend
now that she's gone
Track Name: In Heaven
you pass the miles by my side
sixty left 'til that lone parking lot
our meeting spot

lightning flashes the sky
the dashboard guages softly light your face
as on we race

it's seven years to the month
when summer sun saw you become his bride
I quietly cried

and now so faded and sad
each year has stolen different parts of you
yet you hold true

I think you know I love you
still my best friend
when will I see you again?

he doesn't love you enough
he won't support your dreams in anything
yet you wear his ring

I've not been lucky in love
each time I find a jewel can't see it through
'cuz I dream of you

I think you know I love you
still my best friend
when will I see you again?

one hour
and then you're gone
you'll drive your car back home
and leave us both alone

in heaven
would you be mine
for a few days' time?
would that be out of line?

years ago when we met
I should have offered up my hand to dance
when we had the chance

and if I told you now
that for you I'd even love his kids
'cuz they're yours and his

I think you know I love you
still my best friend
when will I see you again?

one hour
and then you're gone
you'll drive your car back home
and leave us both alone

in heaven
would you be mine
for a few days' time?
would that be out of line?
Track Name: Savage Love
I miss lusting after you
maybe more than I miss you
was I just an ego boost?
a thrill to seek
to get you through the week?

as I'm reading Savage Love
you're all that I can think of
I've lost all hope of more than this
'cuz Savage Love is all there is

I know monogomy is hard
but so was fucking in your car
you really weren't so discreet
a condom wrapper on your seat
made him finally notice you

as I'm reading Savage Love
you're all that I can think of
I've lost all hope of more than this
'cuz Savage Love is all there is

as I'm writing to Savage Love
you're all that I can think of
I've lost all hope of more than this
'cuz Savage Love is all there is
