Alone Or Lying (EP) lyrics

1.  Adjust

You could adjust, you could adjust
You coulda just burnt the bridge I was crossing
With you

You could adjust, you could adjust
You coulda just burnt the bridge I was crossing
With you

I cried enough, I cried enough
Cried enough to fill up that river
Down there

I cried enough, I cried enough
Cried enough to fill up that river 
Down there

La-da-da-da-da-da…

I'm gonna cut, I'm gonna cut
I'm gonna cut off that hair
Mm-hmm

And I had no luck, I had no luck
I had no luck in lov…-ing you

I had no luck I had no luck
I have no luck in lov…-ing you

La-da-da-da-da-da...


2. Cold Girl

He's got something to say to me
And I've been waiting patiently
But I'm not one to stick around gladly

So tell me did you lose your wisdom teeth?
That or break your funny bone
'Cause I know right there's a reason that we're wrong

So I'll sing out, oh
How do you know, do you know
When you've only got right now
And how do you cry, do you cry
Over what you left to die
Well tell me how could it be
'Cause I thought that you left me

He may say I'm one cold girl
But I'm just being protectful
And thankfully I leave what I don't need

'Cause you see, oh anyone who's tried to warn me
Got too close and just burned me 
And I'll admit it really burns me up

So I'll sing out, oh
How do you know, do you know
When you've only got right now
And how do you cry, do you cry
Over what you left to die
Tell me how could it be
Tell me how could it be
Tell me how could it be
'Cause I thought that you left me


3. I Do

You've been gone too long, I've been thinking too much
You've been gone too long I've been thinking, too

See there is a point when I lose interest in it all
A familiar voice and I am hypocritical, oh no

Don't tell me I don't understand love, understand
Oh don't tell me I don't understand love, understand I do
I do

It's you against the world but you can't take too much
And you alone are against my word, too
I had this posture hidden so you just postulate
That it is a reflection of my inflated greatness, oh  no
Don't tell me I don't understand love, understand
Oh don't tell me I don't understand love, understand I do
I do

You can't be the only one to ever get it right
Don't bring me down to thinking I just only might
No I'll get it right

So don't tell me I 
Don't understand love
Understand I do, I do
I do


4. People Like That

You're a matchstick equipped with a bit of a sword to my words
So I will hesitate first before I go

I watched 1, 2, 5, 9 all add up to one
It's too late to run now from what I've done

Still I can't be sure you're showing me the door
Or that you've pulled back on the welcome mat
I wish there was a peephole to the soul of people like that
I wish there was a peephole to the soul of people like you

Took your message mixed it with a bit of uncertainty
This recipe comes to me so naturally

See, there's a point that I missed while I wished it was not the same
I read your actions with a list of other names

Still I can't be sure you're showing me the door
Or that you've pulled back on the welcome mat
I wish there was a peephole to the soul of people like that
I wish there was a peephole to the soul of people like you

It's such a sin to wanna see them
When time for them is meant for them to lose
I always seem to wanna win them
Over, but that's over now

I can't be sure you're showing me the door
Or that you've pulled back on the welcome mat
I wish there was a peephole to the soul of people like that
I wish there was a peephole to the soul of people like you


5. Got These Eyes

I got these eyes, I got these eyes they're seeing planes
I've got these ears, I've got these ears they're hearing trains
I've got this will, I've got this will to rearrange
I've got these wings, I've got these wings clipped for a change

And here I go, again I know it's all the same
History shows the present presents its own name
I can't escape, I'm not affected by mistakes
It's the mistake imagination makes
I live in gray, I live in gray, I live in gray

I've got these hands, I've got these hands that hold tightly
I've got these ribs, I've got these ribs that can't cage me
I've got this choice, I've got this choice to stay or go
I've got these hors, I've got these horns that hold a halo

And here I go, again I know it's all the same
History shows the present presents its own name
I can't escape, I'm not affected by mistakes
It's the mistake imagination makes
I live in gray, I live in gray, I live in gray


6. Late On Newbury

I wanna repeat this
I wanna find someone like you
Someone just like you

I know your secret
Saw the tracing on your face
I saw it on your face

It was late on Newbury street
The new place to bury my guilt
Felt your hand reach for me to start the story
By the record sale

You cannot love me
It's not in your vocabulary
Unfortunately

So, alone or lying
Well what is better for me now
What is better ever?

It was late on Newbury street
The new place to bury my guilt
Felt your hand reach for me to start the story
By the record sale

And after you now
Tell me how I can't move on
When I wanna move on
From the time that it was…

Late on Newbury Street
The new place to bury my guilt
Felt your hand reach for me to start the story
By the record sale
