Track Name: No Flowers
Hey, you
Do you remember me?
I know it's been a long time
I know it's hard to see
That this face is the same as your face
But now I'm grown and pretty, I'm not a girl you can leave
I haven't heard your voice
But now I'm facing my fears
I thought of you on holidays
But never wished you were here

I fell in love a hundred times
and hearts broke, as well as mine
But then I found the love of my life
And he is waiting for me

I didn't bring you any flowers and I don't say any prayers
I just wanted to let you know that even though you weren't there
Oh, I graduated college
I learned to play the guitar
And I became a teacher
I learned to use my heart

And mom, she taught me all I need
About life and my precious breath
She taught me how to forgive
Tried telling me to forget
Oh, I didn't bring you any flowers
And I don't say any prayers
I didn't come here to say goodbye
It's just that you've lost all these year
and now, you're here.
Track Name: Think of Me
Think of me
Think of me when you go
I watched you shake your head
"That's crazy," you said
But it's only a matter of time

Speak of me
Speak well of me
It's all I ask
Don't want to be your past
Ain't it funny how I play with my mind?

Oh, and it seems to me the more enthralled that I am
the more I begin to miss you
Oh, and it's plain to me, someday you'll finally see
I'm just a lot scars from all that I've been through
But then what will you do?

I hope you stay with me
Stay there with me in my dream
You know, I'm not what I seem
Sometimes, I can be mean

But, you and me we're going to disagree
and I'll probably cry
and you'll probably go outside
Leading me to over-think everything

And it's no wonder how I work myself up to this mess
With you in front of me, being everything and more
Oh, and I don't ask "why", when I realize I terrified
'Cause losing you would leave me heart bloody on the floor
And that's never happened to me before

So be with me
Forgive me
No, I don't mean to interrogate you
It's just I'm past due for some tragedy
And with you methods of love it should be easy to see

That it's just hard for me
It's just hard to believe
That with my flaws and everything
You love me for me
Track Name: Heaven
The sunshine spills through you bedroom blinds
I can feel you there tangled in my hair
And I do my best to go back to sleep
The only thing that I want to hear is your heart beating
You'll never know
You'll never know

And I hear the clock ticking and I know time is passing and I'm
getting upset, and I know I'm irrational
But, you'll never know
No, you'll never know

Heaven
If heaven did exist
I know
I know it would be just like this
Track Name: Wait Here
Oh, how I'd kill to keep that smile on your face
You mean the world to me
Oh, how I know that you say you're in love
Well, then what am I afraid of?

How do I manage to break everything
When I love with all of my being?
I smell on your breath the foretaste of death
and it's frightening the shit out of me

How can you lie there?
How can you dream
When I'm fighting myself while you're fast asleep?

Is it true I'm a fool if I wait here for you
Will you ever come for me?

You're always saying that you're incomplete
But I could never compete
I can't fix your sadness
Can't fix anything
and I'd give all I have, but nothing's free

I wanted to die here
But you won't comply
I'll return to the darkness
Live out a miserable life

'Cause you're not quite ready to fathom with me
The "forever and always" I can never unsee

You're all that I've needed
I'm sorry I'm not shy
I could never be so lucky, but I had to try

Is it true I'm a fool if I wait here for you?
Will you ever come for me?
