Track Name: Susannah
Susannah Susannah
won't you please take me home?
with you on my mind, can't keep my eyes on the road
unlock the door
take off your winter coat
leave your boots on the rug
leave your footprints on the floor

Your hands went through me like I was a ghost
I felt every fingertip brush against my soul
I was lonely and desperate
my heart was up for sale
if that makes me a sinner then lord, send me straight to hell
send me straight down to hell

I kissed her and ran my fingers through her hair
she blessed me with a smile
and a look that says she cares
her body laid before me, but her eyes are where I stare
was it love that I was feeling, or was it lust?
I didn't care
was it lust? I didn't care

Is that your real name Susannah?
maybe it's best if I don't know
I don't want to know what you'll think of me tomorrow
so when you leave, don't let me know
when you leave, don't let me know

I woke up beside where she laid herself to rest
the outline of her body and her scent were still so fresh
a note left on the table signed with lips of crimson red
said "the next time you are lonely, let me take you home again"
Track Name: Cold Hard Truth
I've got coffee on the counter
I've got morning breath
burned my tongue
spilled the coffee again
guess the stain on the counter is here to stay
just like your memory
it won't wash away

that diamond ring is still under my bed
was gonna give it to you
til' you found another man
guess I'll have to save it for another day
but my heart won't let me love that way again

I've tried my hand at loving again
but your love is like a bullet tearing through my chest
I named the children that we never had
you can say I'm insane
but I'm only a man

I'm only a man with a desperate song
playing with my hands and staring at the walls
when I hold another it's the cold hard truth
I'm pretending that she's you
when I hold another it's the cold hard truth
I'm pretending that she is you
Track Name: I've Known Love
I've known the kind of love
that stabs you in the back
that runs away and takes away
any give a damn you had
I've known the kind of love
that makes you too sick to eat
leaves you tired and week
and leaves you lyin' on the ground

I've known love for what it is
I've known love for what it ain't
it's turned a saint into a sinner
turned a sinner into a saint
I've known love as a blessing
I've known love as a curse
and I can't decide which one is worse

I've known the kind of love
that can kill your motivation
all from one big question
have I made the right choice?
I've known the kind of love
that takes all of your wisdom
your logic and conviction
until there's nothing left at all

I've known love for what it is
I've known love for what it ain't
it's turned a saint into a sinner
turned a sinner into a saint
I've known love as an ocean
and as a single drop of rain
sometimes I feel like they're the same

I've known the kind of love
that leaves you wanting more
but you don't know what for
you don't know the reason why
I've known that kind of love
that takes all of your wisdom
your logic and conviction
until there's nothing left at all

I've known love for what it is
I've known love for what it ain't
it's turned a saint into a sinner
turned a sinner into a saint
I've known love as a blessing
I've known love as a curse
I can't decide which one is worse

I've known love
I've known love
it holds my hand
it lets me go
it throws me down
it picks me up
it's what I need
it's what I don't
I've known love
Oh, I've known love
Track Name: Learning How to Break a Heart
Darling you do not know me
the way you did before
I ain't nearly as desperate
for your love anymore
and I won't dare make a promise
a promise I cannot keep
for I know it is reckless
it makes a fool out of me

I will not say I love you
unless I know it for a fact
I broke so many hearts
without them breaking mine back
I can say that I'm sorry
but I know just how it feels
to give it all to someone
then watch them disappear

I've done my share of lyin'
had my share of being lied to
that's just the nature of us all
I held on for so long
when I should've torn it apart
we all must learn how to break a heart

Darling you do not love me
the same way that you did
so why don't you admit it?
before it's too late
I know you think you found something
but I ain't all I look to be
just under the surface
are all the things I don't want you to see

You've done your share of lyin'
you've had your share of being lied to
that's just the nature of us all
you held on for so long
when you should've torn it apart
we all must learn how to break a heart


I've done my share of lyin'
had my share of being lied to
that's just the nature of us all
I held on for so long
when I should've torn it apart
we all must learn how to break a heart
Track Name: Stop and Smell the Roses
I stopped to smell the roses
but the roses all were dead
the morning came
the sun never shined
the darkness stayed instead

I tried to love a woman
she let me into her bed
she let me fall in love with her
she up and ran away

Didn't expect her to love me
just some honesty and I would've learned
I fell for those eyes so many damn times
never thought they would've lied
I never thought that they would've lied

I was a fool looking for someone to hold
I was lonely
I was desperate
I was cold
but little did I know
she held someone just as close
the very night before

Didn't expect her to love me
just some honesty and I would've learned
I fell for those eyes so many damn times
never thought they would've lied
I never thought that they would've lied

I stopped to smell the roses
but the roses all were dead
I know one day the sun will shine
the roses will grow back again
