Track Name: Don't Know The First Thing
Don't know the first thing about love
Don't know the first thing about love
You don't know the first thing
Or the last, don't know the least, don't know enough

Don't say you know me cuz you don't
Don't say you know me cuz you don't
Don't act like you know me
When you left me like a stranger in the cold

After all of these years of being alone
You should've known by now
Hearts weren't made for a game, weren't made to be thrown
You should've known by now, yeah

Don't make a promise you can't keep
Don't make a promise you won't keep
Don't make me no promise
You might break 'em but you're never breakin' me
Don't say you're sorry cuz you're not
Don't say you're sorry cuz you're not
Don't tell me you're sorry
I'm just sorry you're a fool and I forgot

After all of these years of being alone
You should've known by now
Hearts weren't made for a game, weren't made to be thrown
You should've known by now, yeah
Track Name: No Love
You want a piece of my heart today
How 'bout a piece of my mind
Cuz I'm so sick of what you've been sayin'
Say it, say it to me all the time

Don't flatter yourself and think
I didn't know who you are
Maybe I kept hope, but my eyes weren't closed
I had you pegged from the start

Cuz I don't want no love that i can't keep
So just keep it far away
Don't wanna hear no words I can't believe
So believe me, this is true
We're through

And you'll be less than a memory
I'll leave your drama behind
And when you wake up in my wake you know you'll be wishin'
Wishin', wishin' that you were still mine

Cuz I don't want no love that i can't keep
So just keep it far away
Don't wanna hear no words I can't believe
So believe me, this is true
We're through
Track Name: She's Gone
Seemed like the best thing
The best thing you ever had
Cuz she was your best friend
At best times, your better half
Well take off your blindfold
And take a look at what it is
It's all just a big waste
Of your time and all your tears

Cuz you are still in love
You can't see what's going on with her now
She was gone before she ever left
She was gone

You can't stand to let go
To let go of all your past
But it's got a hold on you
And it's choking you to death
Cuz you're stuck inside it
You're living in your memory
And you won't escape it till you're willing to be free

Cuz you are still in love
You can't see what's going on with her now
She was gone before she ever left

And will you keep denying
Denying that she's gone to stay
You gotta quit lying to yourself that way
I know you can't imagine
Imagine life without her now
You don't have to imagine
Just take a look around

You love speculating
Love believing this will pass
Well quit speculating
Cuz she's never coming back

Cuz you are still in love
You can't see what's going on with her now
She was gone before she ever left
Cuz you are still in love
You can't see what's going on with her now
She was gone before she ever left
She was gone
She was gone
Track Name: Kiss/Told
Don't call me beautiful before you even learn my name
Don't promise me the world when all I want is space
Don't offer me two cents when all I want from you is change
This time it isn't me, it's you, and what you say

You should have kissed before you told
You gave me too much time to change my mind and
I would have never been so bold
To run away with your arms tight around me

Yeah you were building brick by brick, then talking to a wall
And I'm the kind that never cracks, I will not fall

You should have kissed before you told
You gave me too much time to change my mind and
I would have never been so bold
To run away with your arms tight around me

Well you are what you say, and I am what I sing
I'm the cold-hearted truth, and you're a sweet nothing to me
Track Name: Georgia
Breathe for me now cause I'm all out of air
From running around, chasing you there
I drove all the way to the Georgia state line
Thought you'd meet me halfway, thought you'd always be mine

Now my heart's down in Savannah
Somewhere way up 95
I don't know how it got there
Couldn't find it if I tried
My heart's down in Savannah
Somewhere way up 17
I don't know how it got there
There's no sense in wondering

Speak for me now, cause I'm all out of words
From calling for you, but I guess you misheard
Maybe letters get stopped at the Georgia state line
But you heard me sing, (and now) you can't deny

That my hearts down in Atlanta
Somewhere way up 24
I don't know how it got there
Why you left me wanting more
Now my heart's in Alabama
Somewhere way up 65
I don't know how it got there
Couldn't find it if I tried

Shelter me know, cause I don't have a home
But Georgia sounds nice, and I'm out on my own
If you can stay there, then maybe I'll hit the road
I don't need no promise, just a last mile hope

Now my heart's down in Savannah
Somewhere way up 95
I don't know how it got there
Couldn't find it if I tried
My heart's down in Savannah
Somewhere way up 17
I don't know how it got there
There's no sense in wondering

Now my heart's down in Kentucky
Somewhere up 231
I don't know how it got there
Only know I lost someone
Now my heart's in Carolina
Somewhere way up 40 east
I don't know how I got here
Left alone in Tennessee
Track Name: Bird Song
Flew too close to what I thought was mine
The wings of desire made me blind
But one aloft and one on shore
Have never equaled two before

Whatever wind pushed me to you
Pulled me back, away I blew
Filled my wings but did not lift
Changed my course, set me adrift

I will fly to a further sky
It's a secret to my bird's eye
And if you come into my sight
I'll tip my wing but won't alight

Whatever wind pushed me to you
Pulled me back, away I blew
Filled my wings but did not lift
Changed my course, set me adrift

You stole my heart like a jackdaw
But I will not weep or will or caw
I will not sing but you'll know my song
I'll be the bird that hums, life's not so long
