Susan Osborn I originally bought this album solely because my son designed the album cover. But, after giving it a listen, I'm sold! Love the whole album and look forward to #2! Favorite track: Fickle Heart.

Track Name: Can't Say
Well I can't say how and I can't say why
I can't just say goodbye
I look at you and I'm tongue tied
But I can't say how, I can't say why.

Can't say where and I can't say when
I can't say I'll see you again
But you're everywhere I've every been
And I can't say where, I can't say when.

Chorus:
'Cause all we had is all but gone, and words don't make it right
All we are is all but wrong, and all the wrong words rhyme.

Can't say how and I can't say why
I've said it a thousand times,
You're all the reasons I live and die,
But I can't say how, I can't say why.

(Chorus)

I can't say when, can't say who
But I can say he'll be nothing like you.
And he'll love me the way that I loved you
But I can't say when, I can't say who.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Poison in My Veins
You find your way into my blood.
You are the one that's one too much, and never enough.
You'll be my morning after headache.
You'll be my help-me-forget this heartbreak.
Just like poison in my veins.

Chorus:
You're poison in my veins,
I trust the words I shouldn't say.
Like alcohol, running to my brain,
You're just poison in my veins.

You are the kiss I should forget,
My one night gone too far, my favorite accident.
I prayed the morning wouldn't break,
'cause what more can my pride take?
When there's poison in my veins.

(Chorus)

You make me dizzy.
You make me somebody that I don't even know.
You keep me spinning,
But I drink you in still, I bring you in still,
I keep you in and you keep me warm.
But I will ache with you when it's dawn again.
'Cause I will wake and you'll be gone again.
Just like poison,
Poison in my veins.

You're poison in my veins,
You're that bittersweet taste on my lips,
I can't get you out of my brain.
You're poison in my veins and I can't stay away
From poison in my veins,
Poison in my veins.
Track Name: Give a Damn Danny
You say jump and I'm fifteen feet up.
You say come and you know that I'll run.
But I say please, you say you've heard enough.
So it seems I never get to say much.

But this isn't what I thought love was supposed to be.

Chorus:
You don't give a damn, Danny, but you take a damn lot from me.
You don't give a damn, Danny, but you're wearing my heart on your sleeve.
And I keep giving and you keep taking everything that you can.
But you take a damn lot for a man that don't give a damn.

You only call 'cause you know I'm gonna be there.
You want it all, but you know that ain't fair.
And I keep saying don't you ever come back around,
But you turn on the charm when my guard is down.

So you get what you want, I barely live on what I need.

(Chorus)

And I give, and I give, and I give, and you take, and I give, and you take, and I give.
And I give, and I give, and I give, and you take, and I give, and you take, and I give, and I give, and I give.

And you don't give a damn, Danny, but you take a damn lot from me.
You don't give a damn, Danny, but you take what you please.
Still I keep giving and you keep taking everything that you can.
But you take a damn lot for a man that don't give a damn.
Oh, I just give a damn lot, and Danny don't give a damn.
Track Name: The Devil and Me
They told me that my life is headed for the devil,
So I asked them, "what's a life if you're living like you're dead?"
They started praying, they were saying, "well we hope you'll be forgiven."
And even though I listened, I never heard a word they said.

Chorus:
Guess I was born to be a sinner, I was born to be free.
I was born to dance on two left feet.

So I kept on walking, I started talking with the devil,
And I asked them "what's a life if you live it like you're dead."
He took my soul and he washed it in a whiskey river.
I took his hand, we stood back, and watched the banks turn red.

Chorus:
'Cause I was born to be a sinner, I was born to be free.
I was born to dance on two left feet.
And raised up to be the rebel, I was made with a little bit of fire, you see.
I guess it's always been the devil and me.

If I hear those angels singing my song, well I'll shiver
'Cause I know they won't be coming here for anybody else.
But I won't pray, I've made my grave and I'll sleep in it.
If there's a heaven, Lord, I'm headed straight for hell.

Chorus:
'Cause I was born to be a sinner, I was born to be free.
I was born to dance on two left feet.
Raised up to be the rebel, I was blind but now I see
I guess it's always been, the devil and me.
Track Name: Won't Talk
I'm gonna kick myself awake when this buzz wears off,
And lay here in the shame of your arms,
And I'll keep my eyes low, if you keep your eyes low.

I won't talk if you won't talk, we can walk away in the morning.
I won't call if you won't call, we both know it's nothing more than
I'm just drunk and you're just drunk, we wake up with guilt in our bones
These shameful souls
I won't talk if you won't.

She's gonna wonder where you've been, but you won't tell her
My friends will all just turn their heads, 'cause they know better
And I'll keep my eyes low, if you keep your mouth closed.

I won't talk if you won't talk, no one wants to know what we've done
I won't call if you won't call, we both know another night comes when
I'll be drunk, you'll be drunk, we'll end up down this same road
No one needs to know
So I won't talk if you won't.

'Cause this isn't love we're making, only taking,
I'm just hating everything this is, everything we've been.
I know that I am weak, I can't believe how bad I need
To feel the way I felt underneath your spell
When I'm lonesome
You're lonesome

Then I won't talk and you won't talk and we'll just walk away
I won't call, 'cause you don't call, there's nothing left to say
But when I'm drunk and when you're drunk and all we want is something to hold, take me home
Then I won't talk if you won't.
No I won't talk if you won't.
I won't talk if you won't.
Track Name: In the Dark
Ooooh
Ooooh

There are monsters underneath my bed,
Keep me up all night and scared to death,
'Cause I hear them scream
In my dreams.

Ooooh

There are skeletons living in my head
Locked in closets that were never opened
'Til you held me
How you held me

Chorus:
Oooh, I've done it this time, lost my mind
And you're haunting my heart, just like a demon in the dark.

There's a ghost inside my bones talking like you
Whispering secrets of the things you do when you are all alone.
You are all I know.

(Chorus)

I hear those voices in my head
Down the hallways, always footsteps
You're in my head, it's all in my head.

Ooooh

(Chorus)

Oooh I've done it this time
Lost my mind
So have my heart,
'Cause you're the demon in the dark.
Track Name: Fickle Heart
My heart, my heart, my fickle heart
Longs for sun and lays in the dark,
Aims for love and misses the mark,
My heart, my heart, my fickle heart.

My feet, my feet, my tired feet
Have carried my fast and far in retreat
But now I'm kicking myself to sleep
With my feet, my feet, my tired feet.

My mind, my mind, my restless mind
Is caught on the bridges I've left in flames behind
Every step overthought and analyzed
'Til I lose my mind.

In the cold sweats underneath the sheets,
I was trembling with dreams I hate to dream
You stayed awake, clutching my face, trying to save my teeth.
Now I grind them to dust.

My bones, my bones, my aching bones
Are broken and bruised from your sticks and stones
But your words put the knife in my soul
Leaving just bones, aching bones.

And my fickle heart doesn't have a home
To rest these bones, aching bones.
Now I'm just bones, bones.
