I met him, we met them, and all of a sudden we were singin' songs and lookin' at each other in a really small room. We're searching for bigger rooms.

Track Name: You Used To Be
I walked into the middle of your breakdown,
Drunk and stumbling through the dark.
Your mood is painted lightly on your frown.
Hearts are always blind and rarely see.

You used to be such a happy girl.
Would it kill you to ever take heed from my words?

Open up the window breathe the daylight,
You slowly put your hand to my chest.
You said I can’t waste anymore time.
My mother knows, my father knows the rest.

You used to be such a happy girl.
It’s hard to live in such a twisted world.

When you stay sad it’s not for too long.
Your friends are always there to sing you praise.
He takes off your shirt with the lights on.
Tonight he’ll fall asleep in my place.

You used to be such a happy girl.
I wish I’d left you crying at my door.

I lie awake and watch you burn.
Your head is none of my concern.
And thanks for the heart that’s breaking,
The sad boy appreciates it,
I wait for the day the tables turn…

I know it won’t be long until you’re gone,
And dancing with the men of certain fame.
Suicide is selfish so I’ll move on.
While you figure out that mess in your brain.

You used to be such a happy girl.
It’s hard to live in such a twisted world.

And I figure all’s well, that ends well…but we didn’t end so good.
Track Name: I Am Taking You Tonight
When there’s nothing left to do,
The only thing to do is self destruct,
Downtown, I’m stumblin’ around, tryin’ to catch your eyes.
They’re singing songs of faith.
But we can walk with fate down Allen Street and unfold, melodies rolled,
And we could let it be.

I’m gonna take you all the way,
Gonna take you all the way tonight.
I’m gonna take you all the way,
Gonna take you all the way tonight. Yeah tonight.

Please don’t leave with him tonight,
He wants you to wear his ring,
But I’ll unwind, I’ll cross the line, and I’ll make an awful scene.
Just give me a moment’s time,
And I’ll wrap this night up with an exit your way, your smile explodes.
Your secrets are always safe.

I’m gonna take you all the way,
Gonna take you all the way tonight.
I’m gonna take you all the way,
Gonna take you all the way tonight. Yeah tonight.

The patterns of your hair are falling.
In a way I’ve never seen.
I don’t know what happened to you.
Can you tell me what happened to me.

Could you tell me what drew you in?
What the hell is so great about him?
I don’t see. If he’s your head, then why’re you here with me?
We slide in and out of change,
But nobody ever really changes,
And you, you never change, and I’m sure you’ll vanish soon…

I’m gonna take you all the way,
Gonna take you all the way tonight.
I’m gonna take you all the way,
Gonna take you all the way tonight. Yeah tonight.
Track Name: Winnipeg, Manitoba
We're long overdue for fractured peace.
They stare straight through the empty glass.
While he pulls the revolver from the desk,
Hollow threats point the barrel at his head.

Hope hangs loose in a sister’s fear.
Dealt with unwelcome strain of 30 years.
You know she’s not really asking for much.
Cause it’s so sad when you hate the one you love.

They grow ‘em cold up there.

Paranoia takes the mind.
Surveillance serves as passing time.
No matter what prescriptions are filled.
Everything fades after nothing heals.

I’m caught in the arc of a blank stare,
Looking back at me from nowhere.
She says we’re all holding our breath.
Cause it’s so sad when you hate the one you love.

They grow ‘em cold up there.

There’s so much buried where it shouldn’t be.
Nothing ever reaches light.
You can’t blame the righteous for the cowardly,
While temptation breaks a family.

They grow ‘em cold up there.
