Track Name: Parachute
Here I am, there you are
Thank God I finally see you
I don't know what I was waiting for all this time, all this time
I never was quit to learn
Always took the long way around
But this is good so I'm not going there this time, not this time
So baby, hold on tight

Fly away with me
Hit the ground running 'til we can't find our feet
I know you're scared, 'cause I am too
But that's what happens when you jump with no parachute

What goes up must come down
All good things, oh yeah, they all come to an end
But when we hit the ground, I hope we're old and grey, old and grey
Baby, take my hand, and everything will be ok

Fly away with me
Hit the ground running 'til we can't find our feet
I know you're scared, 'cause I am too
But that's what happens when you jump with no parachute
With no parachute

Fly away with me
Hit the ground running, hit the ground running
Hit the ground
Hit the ground running
Oh hit the ground running
Baby take this leap with me
Let's see together what this love could bring
I know you're scared, 'cause I am too
But that's what happens when you jump
But that's what happens when you jump
But that's what happens when you jump
With no parachute
With no parachute
Track Name: Just Words
Say what you will
Like venom from your lips
Hope it makes you feel better
Shout it loud
So everyone can hear you
Do you feel stronger?

So hide behind them
Like they're something more (than)

Just words, the words are all you have
Just words, but your words make me laugh
So go ahead, spill 'em out in front of me
They aren't who I am

You're just a boy
In the shell of a man
But you think you're amazing
You couldn't be less amazing

Even if you tried
Cause all you've got to your name (is)

Just words, the words are all you have
Just words, but your words make me laugh
So go ahead, spill 'em out in front of me
They aren't who I am

So just when you think you've hurt me
You will come to see
That all you'll ever be
Is just words
You're just words
Oooh
You're just words
Just words
So go ahead, spill 'em out in front of me
Go ahead, spill 'em out in front of me
They aren't who I am
All you'll ever be
Is just words
Just words
Track Name: Take Me Away
Suns coming up, same room same sky
Come on darling, open up your eyes
You with me, it's just so right
But the day to day, in this old place is weighing on my mind
So why don't we just go?

Baby, what do ya say?
Let's go where you're the only one who knows my name
And I swear we'll get home someday
But for now, take me away
Take me away

I'll pack you drive, and that's all we'll plan
Here's a dart baby, throw it at the map
Just for fun, we will stop at each state line
Sneak down the road, take a picture posin' by the welcome sign
Yeah why don't we just go?

Baby, what do ya say?
Let's go where you're the only one who knows my name
And I swear we'll get home someday
But for now, take me away
Take me away

Let's take a chance and start a brand new day
With just a scenery change

Baby, what do ya say?
Let's go where you're the only one who knows my name
And I swear we'll get home someday
But for now, ooooh
Baby, what do ya say?
Let's go where you're the only one who knows my name
And I swear we'll get home someday
But for now, take me away
Take me away

Baby, what do ya say
Wuh-oh, wuh-oh
Baby let's go, let's go where you're the only one who knows my name
Wuh-oh, wuh-oh
Let's go away
Take, take me away
Track Name: Pointless
With every touch, I'm falling fast
What is it you do to me that makes me lose my breath?
I'm spinning 'round, no end in sight
And all that I can feel is your skin against mine
But I need more
And I, I want more from you

Cause you could have everything I am
If you just let me in and help me understand
So I'll hold back 'til it's pointless
Because even when I say no, I mean yes

Tender hands, but a calloused heart
I can't get enough of you, but is it supposed to be this hard?
I'm afraid of letting go
Even if it's best that I take this road alone
I need more
And I, I want more from you
Don't you want it to?

Cause you could have everything I am
If you just let me in and help me understand
So I'll hold back 'til it's pointless
Because even when I say no, I mean yes

Cause you could have everything I am
If you just let me in and help me understand
So I'll hold back 'til it's pointless
Because even when I say no

Cause you could have everything I am
If you just let me in and help me understand
So I'll hold back 'til it's pointless
Because even when I say no, I mean yes
I mean yes
I mean yes
Track Name: This Love
This love snuck up on me
Grabbed me from behind, held me tight, and never let go
Warmth and security constantly surround me
And this love

This love, it saved this girl inside
Was headed to a place where time and faith were almost gone
But now my heart believes that all along, out there waiting
Was this love

This love, it called me here
And in this love, there is no fear
I've never had a dream so beautiful
As this love

This love, it's kinda funny
Cause even when I'm down it turns me around, it sure knows how
It's never a dark, dim day, when I can see the face
Of this love

This love, it called me here
And in this love, there is no fear
I've never had a dream so beautiful

So beautiful

And now it all makes perfect sense
This life I've lived is no accident
Cause everything has led me here
To you
This love
This love

This love, it called me here
And in this love, there is no fear
I've never had a dream so beautiful
Oh this love, it called me here
And in this love, there is no fear
I've never had a dream so beautiful
As this love
This love
