If you're gonna tell me that I'm wrong then tell me sweetly Sitting on the sidelines screaming out your guidelines Don't tell me that you're done unless you let me down easy Up against the window screaming what I don't know What I don't know Oh boy here we go If you've got something to say then won't you head to the stage Sitting pointing rocking criticizing mocking You want it done your way then by all means baby rage Wanna be a rockstar then get yourself a guitar *Chorus* If you're gonna strike me low just do it sweetly Won't let me get too high gotta stop to criticize I got somewhere to go and your words won't keep me grounded baby Sky high swing low Just kick back and watch me go Oh boy here we go Got one foot out the door and another's here on the ground Lift me up and chew me down spit me up and ring me round Got one ear to the wall and the other's filled with pretty sounds Back it up and show me how pour me up another round *Chorus* *Bridge*

I cried a river over a carton of spilled milk this morning Sunny skies in the forecast when at long last you realize Those skies might keep pouring Caught myself short of breath by the time it was afternoon Around a quarter after noon And I started to guess that the worst would be over soon Pack up this open road Close it inside my fist Drop off this heavy load Cause life's too short of this Tie down these big ol' dreams Anchor them's what I mean Cause if we're coming clean The best part is in between Killed two birds with one stone but I swear it was an accident Days turn into weeks into years And it feels too cliche to wonder Where all that time went Rode a sliver of hope Though I seldom discuss What I found chasing dust Guess I'm still learning to trust Pack up this open road Close it inside my fist Drop off this heavy load Cause life's too short of this Tie down these big ol' dreams Anchor them's what I mean Cause if we're coming clean The best part is in between

A heartbeat and a bass line Is what I'm looking for Gotta secret gotta keep it Whispers at the door Ooo Who's at the door What you knocking so hard for What you knocking so hard for 1,2,3,4 Till I knock down this door Can't rush, cant rush the magic Gotta let, gotta let it happen Put one foot in front of the next till you aint got no space left Ooo Dead ends, get you to go to where You aint been after you've been nowhere Stare down your demons and unlock the door Bad dreams don't live in these woods no more In this forest full of trees Take a seat at the finish line The day before the race Contradictions superstitions Shoved up in your face Ooo Can I get some room? Didn't you say you were leaving soon 1, 2, 3 leaving soon 3, 6am noon Till I walk out this room Can't rush, cant rush the magic Gotta let, gotta let it happen Put one foot in front of the next till you ain't got no space left Ooo Dead ends, get you to go to where You ain't been after you've been nowhere Stare down your demons and unlock the door Bad dreams don't live in these woods no more In this forest full of trees There's no place like nowhere It's a good place to be Sometimes being nowhere Is exactly what you need Can't rush, cant rush the magic Gotta let, gotta let it happen Put one foot in front of the next till you ain't got no space left Ooo Dead ends, get you to go to where You ain't been after you've been nowhere Stare down your demons and unlock the door Bad dreams don't live in these woods no more In this forest full of trees Forest full of trees.

I love you with my whole heart even the broken pieces Thought I lost it giving it away turns out it's finders keepers And I just want to love you Baby and I'm just thinking of you I love having all of you tangled up with all of me in the morning In the morning And baby turbulence is nothing but a breeze when I'm with you You taught me how to love Just, just, just love You taught me how to love and now I just love loving You I love you with my whole heart even the darkest corners You chipped away the concrete with every passing morning And I just want to love you Baby and I'm just thinking of you I love having all of you tangled up with all of me in the morning In the morning And baby turbulence is nothing but a breeze when I'm with you You taught me how to love Just, just, just love You taught me how to love and now I just love loving You I trust you with my whole heart even when I feel uncertain Baby I'm immature and insecure and terrified of hurting That's why I'm just going to love you And baby I'm just thinking of you From the bottom of my whole heart I've got nothing but love Baby you can have my whole heart For you it's just, just, love I love having all of you tangled up with all of me in the morning In the morning And baby turbulence is nothing but a breeze when I'm with you You taught me how to love Just, just, just love You taught me how to love and now I just love loving You You taught me how to love And now I just love loving you Just, just loving you From the bottom of my whole heart
