Track Name: If You Were Mine
If you were mine
I'd make you breakfast
Every Sunday morning
Then you and I would share
The paper as we sip our tea and coffee

Then we'd walk outside
And everyone would say
How lucky can two people be?
That's you and me, you and me
You and me
If you were mine

If you were mine
I'd sing you love songs
Every Friday night
Then you and I would hold
Each other as we fell asleep

Then we'd walk outside
And everyone would say
How lucky can two people be?
That's you and me, you and me
You and me
If you were mine

What are the chances
That you'd look my way
And see me in another light?

If you were mine
I'd give you everything you deserve
If you say yes
You'd make me such a lucky, lucky girl

If you were mine
If you were mine
If you were mine
Track Name: Something to Wear
Look at you, look at me
You've swept me off my feet
With the way you talk and the way you smile
It's so obvious I'm head over heels for you
I'm already yours
And I'm not the type to admit these things
But I'm running out of excuses

I know I'm not the best
I'm not eloquent
I'm not as experienced as I should be
And I don't have a lot
I can't buy you gifts
But I want you to be mine so I'll

I'll write you a melody to wear
On your heart
On your heart
It's not much, but baby
It's a start
It's a start

I apologize for not telling you
How I felt, how I felt, how I felt
It's not easy for me to be so open
Like you
Now I'm sure what I want, what I want is you

I know I'm not the best
I'm not eloquent
I'm not as experienced as I should be
And I don't have a lot
I can't buy you gifts
But I want you to be mine so I'll

I'll write you a melody to wear
On your heart
On your heart
It's not much, but baby
It's a start
It's a start

And I realized
You make me feel alive
And you see in me
Things that other people don't

And I want you to be mine

I'll write you a melody to wear
On your heart
On your heart
It's not much, but baby
It's a start
It's a start

I'll write you a melody to wear (something to wear)
On your heart (something to wear)
On your heart
It's not much, but baby (it's something to wear)
It's a start (it's something to wear)
It's a start
Track Name: Lately
Lately I've been thinking
'Bout how my life's been
Now I ask, Am I dreaming?
Honestly I never thought
That we'd make it this far
But here we are

I see it in your eyes
I see it in your eyes

And I'm driving home
We pass by your house
There's no stopping us now
With pink streaks in the sky
And leaves rustling by
The summer night

This is something that
I hadn't planned
But I will choose
To trust this feeling
You never know when a chance like this
Will come again, come again

I see it in your eyes
I see it in your eyes

I'm waking up next to you
The sun's coming through the window
And onto your skin
You're still sleeping
But you're still keeping
Your hand in mine, in mine

The time has come for us to part
But I'm afraid I've fallen
Don't worry, I will be all right
I can see it all now, all now

I can see it all now (the summer's come and gone)
I can see it all now (the summer's come and gone)
I can see it all now (the summer's gone)

And we're kissing goodbye
You wipe the tear from my cheek
You say we'll meet again
And I'm driving away
Things left unsaid
I know, I know
Track Name: Can't Keep Running
You say that you're not ready right now
But it's too late to turn back around
You're making up stuff in your mind
Don't be too afraid to walk the line

It's now or never
He'll walk away if you don't
Ask him to stay

Poor boy is wearing his heart on his sleeve
Wondering if you could ever possibly see
You can't keep running away like this
On a chance you can't miss

You say you've got better things to do
Try to make him give up on you
You can keep on acting nonchalant
And deny that he's the one you want

It's now or never
He'll walk away if you don't
Ask him to stay

Poor boy is wearing his heart on his sleeve
Wondering if you could ever possibly see
You can't keep running away like this
On a chance you can't miss

Now you finally see eye to eye with him
Say sorry for taking so long
Now you know you've got nothing to lose
As he takes your hand and says

Silly girl, I've been wearing my heart on my sleeve
Wondering if you could ever possibly see
You can't keep running away like this

Poor boy is wearing his heart on his sleeve
Wondering if you could ever possibly see
You can't keep running away like this
On a chance you can't miss
Track Name: Be All Right
Good morning, dear
The sun's barely risen
So don't worry about all the tough things
Just sleep a little longer

It's all right, it's all right
It'll be fine, it'll be fine

Tell me how long do you sit in the driveway
After you've come home?
How many times do you look into the mirror
To find someone you don't know?

I see the way you doubt yourself
When times get rough
You don't know what you're worth
Don't take all the blame for yourself
When it's not your fault
Just keep on singing
And you'll be all right
You'll be all right

Tell me, were you always this way?
What made you so guarded?
It doesn't have to be this way anymore
Now that you've got me

It's all right, it's all right
It'll be fine, it'll be fine

I see the way you doubt yourself
When times get rough
You don't know what you're worth
Don't take all the blame for yourself
When it's not your fault
Just keep on singing
And you'll be all right
You'll be all right

I've seen you grow into the person
You're trying so hard to be
So just have faith, you'll get through the day
And find you're stronger than before

I see the way you doubt yourself
When times get rough
You don't know what you're worth
Don't take all the blame for yourself
When it's not your fault
Just keep on singing
And you'll be all right
You'll be all right
