Track Name: Take It Slow
Every night I dream about loving you here and now, here and now
But I'm sure that it is worth all of my days on earth waiting it out

You're not a ghost who's desperate to escape
You're just a boy who knows it's worth the wait

Calm your heart and hold your tongue
This love is soft and slowly won
Don't choke it out or let it go
Just bate your breath and take it slow,
Take it slow

Maybe someday in the spring, we will find the time has finally come
But if a lifetime it must be, it's just a moment in my mind, just one

I am a fever that's aching to consume
But I will not break, I'll wait and burn with you

Calm your heart and hold your tongue
This love is soft and slowly won
Don't choke it out or let it go
Just bate your breath and take it slow,
Take it slow
Track Name: Falling Out
Once upon a time, I swore I'd find a way to make it right
And bear all of these burdens by myself
I prayed for God to end it all and save me from this firing wall
But I hung all of my hopes upon the shelf

But you, you were so beautiful to open up the door
And put me out of my misery and end the silent war
You gave me nothing but trouble and
That's God's honest truth
It's been a joy falling out of love with you

You left me alone to chase a lovely dream
And taste the finest liquors in the south
You saw the setting sun in Sarasota and the pleasures of the road are like a sweet taste of wine in your mouth

But you, you are not satisfied with good, better, or best
Until you're good and wasted, baby, I know you can't rest
And now that the lights are on, you find an empty room
Seems it ain't hard falling out of love with you

And I loved you with all of my heart and I tried to be faithful, I tried to be true
And I thought the solution elusive until I saw that the problem was you

And now all this time has passed and you haven't got a clue
It's been a joy falling out of love with you
It's been a joy falling out of love with you.
Track Name: Kindness Is Killing Me
You could come to my house
You could call me on the phone
But instead, all I get is a little crumb of bread
When you're feeling sad and 'lone

Wouldn't it be nice to treat you cold as ice?
But is that the way for a good woman to be?
And it takes all I have to behave and hold it back:
When I talk to you, I feel like kindness is killing me

You could find something good to say
Or better yet just walk away
But instead you play my mind and try to keep me on the line
But I'd be a fool to stay

Wouldn't it be nice to treat you cold as ice?
But is that the way for a good woman to be?
And it takes all I have to behave and hold it back:
When I talk to you, I feel like kindness is killing me

Oh, I'm trying to speak blessing
But it's downright depressing the way you throw it back in my face
May the Lord bless and keep
You far out of my reach
I wanna love you but I'm running out of steam

Wouldn't it be nice to treat you cold as ice?
But is that the way for a good woman to be?
And it takes all I have to behave and hold it back:
When I talk to you, I feel like kindness is killing me
Track Name: Tattoo
Well I heard your sob story, and for crying out loud
You couldn't cry out any louder to a less interested crowd
I'm sorry your star performance didn't merit more applause
But when you flaunt the pain it's hard to see past the scars

I'm asking, why do you paint yourself so sad?
Why do you tell the ones you love they wasted all the life you had?
Why don't you step away from the mirror
And wipe away all the tears you wear like a tattoo
You wear like a tattoo

Well you're so under my skin your blood must be running through my veins
And I don't mean to make a scene or be such a source of pain
But I can't tell if it's you or the sky when the rain falls down at night
You've got a way of flooding down your baggage whenever the time seems right

I'm asking, why do you paint yourself so sad?
Why do you tell the ones you love they wasted all the life you had?
Why don't you step away from the mirror
And wipe away all the tears you wear like a tattoo
You wear like a tattoo

Come on, tell me, can you hear?
Am I making myself clear?
Cuz I need for you to know:
All your crazy tears and fears and fire and brimstone gotta go

Well I heard your opinion and I couldn't be more sure
What's done is done, I've had my fun, and I did not stain my soul
You can say what you want to me but my only guarantee is
You and me, we've got our tattoos

I'm asking, why do you paint yourself so sad?
Why do you tell the ones you love they wasted all the life you had?
Why don't you step away from the mirror
And wipe away all the tears you wear like a tattoo
You wear like a tattoo
