Track Name: Worship You
All of your skin
The clothes that you're in
Do not quite approach what I see in you

The waters at night
The morning's first light
Do not hold a candle to what I see in you, you, you

When you were made
A gift the world gave
To every pair of eyes that would look on you

And under your wings
You shelter everything
That's beautiful, and no one compares to you, you, you

So hold me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you
Hold me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you

Goddess of dreams
So unfair, it seems
That you should hold me once and then walk away

What's real and what's true
All this inside you
Please return and bless me for all my days, my days, my days

So need me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you
Need me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you
Track Name: Obsessed
I'm obsessed
What the fuck is wrong with me?
I'm a mess
And it doesn't even matter who she'd be
'Cause I'm out of my mind thinking about her
All the time living without her
Who am I to think that I could change her life?

I'm obsessed
Who the fuck have I become?
At best
She's an image I created of someone
And I'm losing it all pretending I know her
Hitting a wall and I can't let go
A waterfall, I'm drowning in her life

She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing, the best thing, the best thing

Oh, I've lost control of my life
My heart and soul, they did me wrong
They did me wrong, they did me wrong

I'm obsessed
Is this the fuck what I deserve?
Unless
She's avoiding me to rattle all my nerves
And unsettle my heart and stop my hands
It isn't smart to mess with a man
Who's been apart from love as long as I

I'm obsessed
And how the fuck can I go on?
I confess
I don't care if everything I want is wrong
'Cause I want her touch feeling my body
In her clutch with her legs around me
Not too much to ask for her and I

I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing, the best thing, the best thing

Oh, I've lost control of my life
My heart and soul, they did me wrong
They did me wrong, they did me wrong

When I'm alone her spirit comforts me
At times I feel her hands on me
Remember her voice that doesn't call me now
I have to conjure it up myself
Remember the time, the only time we met
I haven't forgotten anything
When I'm alone, embarrassed, hide my face
I have only myself to blame
When I'm alone, her spirit taunting me
I have only myself to blame
When I'm alone, ashamed to show my face
I have only myself to blame
Track Name: Confused
Conversation started days ago
Who knows, who knows
When we'll get a moment of our own?
Where'd you go? Where'd you go?

'Cause I wanna be your friend
But I think that it's the end
When you leave me hanging, words are dangling
I can't comprehend
Why you've even gone this long
When you're seeming so withdrawn
What am I to you? Can I break through?
How can I move on?

So confused
And used
As I occupy the space where nothing's taking place
'Cause boredom
Is your bedlam
Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life to pass the time?

Bubble-thought ellipses take a toll
Come and go, come and go
What could be as easy as hello?
Not so, not so

And I'm trying to be kind
But I'm waiting on a sign
That this is original, not digital
Or a figment of my mind
Now you're showing me your hand
And I think I understand
That I'm opportune this afternoon
I fit around your plans

So confused
And used
As I occupy the space where nothing's taking place
'Cause boredom
Is your bedlam
Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life, your life?

So confused
And used
I don't wanna be defined as a note squeezed in the lines
When boredom
Is your bedlam
Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life to pass the time?
Track Name: Why Won't You Talk?
Why won't you talk to me
Face on computer screen?
You're staring right back at me
But you never say a word

If I'm speaking honestly
I think you're making fun of me
Though you watch silently
Your voice is the loudest that I've heard

How did I end up like this?
Why are you the one I miss?

Why won't you talk to me
Face that I can't unsee?
I'm waiting impatiently
For a voice with a reply

Give back my self-esteem
Let me believe in me
You've taken my sanity
Without saying your goodbye

How did I end up like this?
Why are you the one I miss?

Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me anymore?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me anymore?

Why won't you talk to me
Face on computer screen?
You're making it hard for me
To see anyone but you

Will you let go of me?
Or is this eternity?
How could you start with me
With no plans to see this through?

How did I end up like this?
Why are you the one I miss?

Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me anymore?

Why won't you talk…
