Track Name: If I'd Never Seen Your Face
If I'd never seen your face
We'd never have begun this chase
Wouldn't be inside this lonely place
Ah...

If I'd never asked your name
We'd never have begun this game
Of pretending we don't feel the same
Ah...
If I'd never seen your face

And if you'd never slept with my best friend
I wouldn't want to see your face smashed in
I might have given you a wedding ring
Ahh!

If I'd never held your hand
Mighta had a different plan
We're scared of things that we don't understand
Ah...
If I'd never held your hand

And if you'd never shat upon my heart
I wouldn't want to see you torn apart
I wouldn't think about the very start and cry

I wouldn't wish you'd never looked my way
Or wish I'd never found the words to say
"Do you happen to have the time?"
Ahh...
Track Name: Who I'm Supposed To Be
"Who I'm Supposed To Be"
by Ryan Lerman

Maybe I'm a weighted statue
Holding out against the sea
Maybe I don't understand who
I'm supposed to be
Yet.

Maybe I'm a race car driver
Looking for a change of scene
Maybe I'll just keep on circling
Until I'm faced with me
Again.

I don't know who I'm supposed to be no more
With you

Maybe you're a roller coaster
Maybe I'm just trying to hold on
Funny how a loosened screw or two
Can throw the whole thing off
Track Name: Real Friends
"Real Friends"
by Ryan Lerman

I hope I'm always yours
Don't wanna be unrealistic
But I hope that I wake up next to you
As long as I keep waking up

I know that it's rough right now
And school has got you awfully busy
But I'm dizzy with the thought that some soon morning
You'll be waking up with someone new

So go on - go hang out with your new friends
While I sit at home and practice my guitar
But a day is gonna come when you find out who your real friends are

I wish you'd throw me a line
Or something that I might hold on to
Cause it's not fun to be the one who's wondering discretely
How long until she wizens up?

I don't know if I'm every going to like it
But I know there ain't no point in trying to fight it
When I see your name on my phone
Can't help but want you to come home
Believe me when I say I trust you
Track Name: Only Yours
A broken shovel in the yard
I guess it was not strong enough
For the weight of my regret

Broken down and dipped in tar
You know that I'd be only yours
You know that I'd be only yours, come on

Go ahead and bleed from my pen
Bleed me out
If it means you'll leave from my head

You know that I'd be only yours and you know that I could give you more than the sea has given to the shore
You know that I'd be only yours

A broken record in my heart
Is skipping on the greatest hits of what I coulda had

Everything I touch turns to dark
You know that I'd be only yours
You know that I'd be only yours, come on

I was never one to give up easy you know
No, especially not on you

You know that I'd be only yours and you know that I could give you more than the sea has given to the shore
You know that I'd be only yours
Track Name: I Already Know
"I Already Know"
by Ryan Lerman

I don't need a song to tell me who I am or a road to show me where to go
Long as you're beside me I already know

I don't need a line to know which side I'm on or a rose to know what's beautiful
Long as you're beside me I already know

And every time you show up at my place
I know it in my heart its right
And every time the moonlight kisses your face
I already know

I don't need the time to pass to know I'm lucky don't need you to ask me I'll tell you I need you
Long as you're beside me I already know

I'm not the kind to spend what I don't have or to see only what I want to see
Long as you're beside me I already know

All I want to do is fill you up and show you that I'll be around for a while
And I don't care what you've been through before I met you
Cause your mine now

I don't need a facebook status to know you're mine I don't need a trophy or a finish line
Long as you're beside me I already know
Track Name: George Krikes & Ryan Lerman - Clap Hands
Sane, sane, they're all insane, fireman's blind, the conductor is lame
A Cincinnati jacket and a sad-luck dame
Hanging out the window with a bottle full of rain
Clap hands, clap hands, clap hands, clap hands

Said roar, roar, the thunder and the roar
Son of a bitch is never coming back here no more
The moon in the window and a bird on the pole
We can always find a millionaire to shovel all the coal
Clap hands, clap hands, clap hands, clap hands

Said steam, steam, a hundred bad dreams
Going up to Harlem with a pistol in his jeans
A fifty-dollar bill inside a palladin's hat
And nobody's sure where Mr. Knickerbocker's at

Roar, roar, the thunder and the roar
Son of a bitch is never coming back here no more
Moon in the window and a bird on the pole
Can always find a millionaire to shovel all the coal
Clap hands, clap hands, clap hands, clap hands

I said steam, steam, a hundred bad dreams
Going up to Harlem with a pistol in his jeans
A fifty-dollar bill inside a palladin's hat
And nobody's sure where Mr. Knickerbocker's at

Shine, shine, a Roosevelt dime
All the way to Baltimore and running out of time
Salvation Army seemed to wind up in the hole
They all went to heaven in a little row boat
Clap hands, clap hands, clap hands, clap hands
Clap hands, clap hands, clap hands, clap hands
Clap hands, clap hands, clap hands, clap hands
