Track Name: Bigger On the Inside
How can I explain when you don't
even look me in the eye?

Something's building up inside of me.
Track Name: The Girl Can't Help It
Say you've forgot
but i know you've not.
Say it's you and me.
No, no i can't agree,

'cause when we're alone
I trace the seams you've sewn.
Kisses hide the stitches
but I pried and found the pictures.
Should i go
if you're still basking in the afterglow?

We could have been a pair.
Can't share a heart that's not there.
Lost, it's not even on her:
the cost of that fateful summer.

And I tried to fill her britches.
Does it show?
'Cause you're still basking in the afterglow.

My heart is strong and I can take it,
but there ain't no cure for your summertime blues.
Track Name: What Can I Do
If nothing has been spoken,
it means that it's not real.
It's not a path I've chosen--
not to feel the way you feel.

What I've done and where I've been
are not to blame.
Never wanted to win.
It's just survival: that's my aim. 'Cause

What can I do, if I can't tell you?

It's a quiet, creeping darkness
I've kept at bay.
Crushed by the weight of having
nothing else to say, 'cause

I can't bear to drag you down, but i do.
Track Name: It's Not You, It's Me
No, it's nothing. Of course, I'm fine.
It's not important. We can talk about it some other time.
Yes, I promise it's no big deal.
You don't have to consider the way that i feel.

You should know that I think I'm lucky.
I'll say it over and over, so let's forget this.
I said "I'm sorry"! Can't you just let it go?

You can't fix me, 'cause I'm not broken.
I was born with my heart not open.
I should be happy. Don't think I don't know.
I just can't explain it. It's just the way it goes.
