Track Name: Lorelai
All I wanted was an honest something.
All you gave me were the sweetest nothings.
Your animal eyes had left this lover blind to fall for a kiss and a beautiful lie.

You left a letter on my pillowcase.
Laced with the smell of a warm embrace. When I opened it I knew I'd never see your face again. You said...

I'll be chasing the horizon line.
I'm leaving this old life behind.
It's not you, it's me.
It's not me, it's us.
We were never enough

So don't try to turn me around.

Frantically, I pressed pen against the paper. In hopes that one day I'd write you away. But I could never erase the house on Nevada Drive where I fell for a kiss and a beautiful lie.

I washed your makeup off my pillowcase. Clean slate, I'm filling all the empty space. When I close my eyes I hope I never see your face again.
You said...

I'll be chasing the horizon line.
I'm leaving this old life behind.
It's not you, it's me.
It's not me, it's us.
We were never enough

So don't try to turn me around.
I'm heading towards solid ground.
I hope this letter finds you well.

Love, Lorelai

Take a breath.
Take a seat.
Take a chance on me.
I'll give you everything.
That's what you told me.
That's what you told me. (x2)

I'll be chasing the horizon line.
I'm leaving this old life behind.
It's not you, it's me.
It's not me, it's us.
We were never enough

So don't try to turn me around.
I'm heading towards solid ground.
I hope this letter finds you well,

Love, Lorelai

Take a breath, take a seat, take a chance on me.
I'll give you everything.
That's what you told me.
That's what you told me.
Track Name: Barstool Saint
I had a tongue that was razor sharp. Ready willing and able to tear you apart at the drop of a dime. It was only a matter of time before my words lost all their sting and I lost everything I loved. Knowing no matter what I do it would never be enough. It would never be enough to make you change your mind.

I'm a barstool saint with a troubled past. I'm a sinner without a future. Let's suture my open wounds tonight. I'm drowning in my regret. So I'll drink from this bottle til I forget or the words I'm sorry finally come out right.

I'm a shell of the man you knew. If you could see the hell that I've been through. It's a constant burn and it never really heals. I've got the scars they just don't show cuz they're buried deep inside my bones. I'll carry them til my eyes go grey and cold.

I'm a barstool saint with a troubled past. I'm a sinner without a future. Let's suture my open wounds tonight. I'm drowning in my regret. So I'll drink from this bottle til I forget or the words I'm sorry finally come out right.

Jameson and ginger, are better together than we ever could've been. So I'll sink a few more dollars, just a few more dollars and raise my glass in hopes this whiskey can save my life again.

I'm a barstool saint with a troubled past. I'm a sinner without a future. Let's suture my open wounds tonight. I'm drowning in my regret. So I'll drink from this bottle til I forget or the words I'm sorry finally come out right.

I'm a barstool saint with a troubled past. I'm a sinner without a future. Let's suture my open wounds tonight.
Track Name: If Only You Knew
Girl, I'm green with envy.
Jealous of the California sun.
Cuz it's kissing every inch of you.
While I sit alone and in the dark.

If only you knew.
If only you knew...

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two.

I could lie, but baby we both know better.
If I head out west, you know it's not for the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want this too.

If only you knew...

I hope that my persistence closes the distance a couple thousand miles.
I can picture your Mona Lisa smile.

I'd walk through the soles of my shoes, coast to coast to catch a glimpse of you during sunset on the Pacific Ocean edge.

If only you knew,
if only you knew...

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two.

I could lie, but baby we both know better.
If I head out west, you know it's not for the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want this too.

My thoughts are running circles through my mind.
You make it easy,
You opened my weary eyes.
I never saw this coming.
I never saw this coming.
I hope that I say something.

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two.

I could lie, but baby we both know better.
If I head out west, you know it's not for the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want this too.

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two. Oh, I'm living a lie and baby, it's oh so clever. When I head out west, it's for the sun and the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want me too, if only you knew.
Track Name: Lost
It's not the life we chose but it's the only life we know.
So let's make the most and take what we can get.

Racing hearts and lying tongues,
Lovers living on the run,
Praying that there finally comes a day that we can stop, settle oceanside, swim into the deep blue and never worry about who's chasing us.

The saltwater washes all our sins away. The sunlight blinds our eyes into thinking we're okay.
We're not okay.
We're lost in a dream we told ourselves was true.

We're lost in a dream.

Don't look now but I think we're being tailed. Eyes on the road,
Eyes on the prize.
Sirens wailing in a frenzy of flashing lights. We're not going down,
Not without a fight.

We're running low on gas, lower on time. We'll never get past the California line. Momma said if you love, you must sacrifice. But I promised there would come a time where we'd stop, settle oceanside, swim into the deep blue and never worry about who's chasing us.

The saltwater washes all our sins away. The sunlight blinds our eyes into thinking we're okay.
We're not okay.
We're lost in a dream we told ourselves was true.
We're lost in a dream.

I'm not a martyr but I found a cause worth dying for.

I won't stop.
I'll drive off the mountainside.
Sink into the deep blue and never worry about who's chasing us.

The saltwater washes all our sins away. The sunlight blinds our eyes into thinking we're okay.
We'll be okay.
We found the dream that we told ourselves was true.
We found our dream.

I'm not a martyr but I found a cause worth dying for.
Worth dying for.
