Track Name: The One
There are things that I should tell you
But I won't
I'll keep them all here in my heart

'Cause that's the one place that I know you'll
Never go
I'll never let you get that far

I want my whole world inside these four walls
i want to hold you, to hell with it all
But I should have told before I let you fall
I'm not the one
I'm not the one

Some people say that I should love you
But I don't
I just adore your every cell

These past few days I'm thinking of you
and me alone,
But we both know that won't end well

I want my whole life in the clip of a gun
I want to feel you, and steal you, and run
But all that's really after all that I've done
You're not the one
And I'm not the one

Yeah, I know that I could have you
But I won't
'Cause I'll be always wanting more

Even now, just looking at you
It's hard to go
Because I know I could be yours

But I have places and people to be
Someone to love and someone to love me
But just for now, boy, it's sure fun to dream
That you're the one
That you're the one

The only one for me.
Track Name: From Here
I'm not fool enough to stay
I know I don't belong here
But I'm not smart enough to stay away
I'm not too good at shifting gears

And I've got no delusions, I know what I am
I know that I'm not your man
But I've got no solutions

So I'm going to love you from here
No agenda, no hope for redemption
I'm going to love you from here
Don't know how to do anything else
Except loving you, and hating myself

I'm not strong enough to walk away from
How I wish you'd feel, how this could work out
But I'm not dumb enough to talk
I know this can't be real
I know you love him, now

And I've got no illusions, I know I've got to go
Find myself out here on my own
But I've found no conclusions

So I'm just going to love you from here
No agenda, no hope for redemption
I'm just going to love you from here
Don't know how to do anything else
Except loving you, and hating myself

I hated myself for so long
Wishing I could be what you want
And I hated the world because
We don't belong
But if we had a chance, that chance is gone
You're moving on

And I am glad to see you smile
Though I wish I was the one lighting up your face
I'll be okay, in a while
My heart just isn't done
You're not so easily replaced

So I'm just going to love you from here
No agenda, no hope for redemption
I'm just loving you from here
Don't know how to do anything else
Except loving you, except loving you

I'm going to love you.... from here
Don't know how to do anything else
Except loving you

I can't help myself.
Track Name: The Casualties of War
Send out the papers
It's time to tell the world
it's time to let it known
The battlefront is all but done
The boys are coming home

It's time to celebrate
It's time to cut the cake
It's time I rubbed it in their face

They said that I was better off alone
Than building all my hopes upon an empty home
And I was better of cold
Than spending every night warm, wrapped inside your empty clothes

But the war is never won
The battle's never done
And my soldier has got to be free
There's no other way I'd have him be
Just hope someday that freedom will lead him
To fight for me
Fight for me

Bring out the good glasses
Let's pour the wine
Not waste our precious time
Try to forget that when you get back gone
You'll probably die

And I will weep for you
But in the meantime, you
Can lay your body down on mine

You said that I was better off alone
But I'd rather be lonely than all on my own
And I was better of cold
Than trying to ignite the fire inside your empty bones

But the war is never won
The battle's never done
And my soldier has got to be free
There's no other way I'd have him be
Just hope someday that freedom will lead him
To fight for me
To fight for me

Let the trumpets sound
We're going down, we're going down
Lay your armor down
We're going down, we're going down

Eternally I'm yours
But we're going down, we're going down
I am a casualty of war
And we're going down, we're going down

Oh, tell me what you're fighting for
When we're going down, we're going down
I am a casualty of war
And we're going down, we're going down
Track Name: Old With You
Take my hand in the morning
I want to fall asleep by your side
Take my mind, take my body
I have no use for them after tonight

'Cause I'd grow old with you
Lay my body down cold with you
I'll sell my soul just to hold you close
But I don't have a soul to lose

Take my words in this moment
Let them bloom, let them grow, and hold you when I'm gone
Take my music
Take it, hold it, own it
Never let it leave the corners of this song

'Cause I'd grow old with you
Lay my body down cold with you
I'd sell my soul just to hold you close
Yes, I'd grow old with you
I wish I could grow old with you

But I'll always love you
