Track Name: "What We Want" - Bess Rogers
Maybe all this time we've been held down
By the heavy weight of our own thoughts
Maybe all this time we've searched around
It's been so long, it’s been so long that we forgot

What we want, what we want, what we want, what we want we have already got

You can store your innocence away
Study who you are and who you're not
But you don't know how to feel today
It's been so long, it's been so long that you forgot

What you want, what you want, what you want, what you want you have already got

No, you won't find it if you're looking
Too busy with your endless searching
Oh, no
No, you won't find it if you're looking
Oh, no
Too busy with your endless searching

‘Cause what we want, what we want, what we want, what we want
What we want, what we want, what we want, what we want we have already got

What we want we have already got

What we want we have already got
Track Name: "Come Home" - Bess Rogers
I don't have the words, if they even exist
I don't have a clue how to fix this
The only thing I know is you're the one I need
So I can't figure out why you've got to leave

Cause every time the day turns into night
Oh the same thing keeps running through my mind

Darling please come home, please come home, please come home to me
Darling, darling, please come home, please come home, please come home to me

You say that you're alright, then you turn your back
Well, darlin', can the truth be that bad?
Maybe this is not a perfect life
But it never will be without a good fight

Cause every time the day turns into night
Oh the same thing keeps running through my mind

Darling, please come home, please come home, please come home to me
Darling, darling, please come home, please come home, please come home to me

Oh, oh, oh (repeated)

Darling, please come home, please come home, please come home to me
Darling, darling, please come home, please come home, please come home to me
Track Name: "Good Enough" - Bess Rogers [FREE DOWNLOAD]
Finally I break myself in two
Into something that you can hold
Every step is work to push and pull
All of myself into the mold

Now what will I become, when you're done will I become
When you're done, will I become good enough for your love? Good enough for your love?

Right on the edge I stop and hold my breath
Swallow it down below
Only I know what lingers inside, secrets I hide for you
So you don't go

Now what will I become, when you're done will I become
When you're done, will I become good enough for your love? Good enough for your love?

Good enough for your love?
Good enough for your love?

Good enough for you only, I never will be
The more that I try now, the harder it seems
You love me only when I'm what you need
The more that I try now, I see I never will be

Good enough for your love
Track Name: "Favorite Day" - Bess Rogers
Do you remember that day in 2008 when you said you loved me?
And you kissed me on the mouth and told me all about
the bike accident from your childhood

I remember, oh I remember with a clarity I know will never fade
I remember, oh I remember
‘Cause that was my favorite day

Then you went to my show, you didn't even know
That I was in a punk band
And all of my friends, they took you by the hand
And they threatened your life

I remember, oh I remember every single note that I played
I remember, oh I remember cause that was my favorite day

You told me you were damaged
I said I'd be your bandage

I remember, oh I remember with a clarity I know will never fade
I remember, oh I remember
‘Cause that was my favorite day

Yes that was my favorite day
Track Name: "All In Good Fun" - Bess Rogers
Well I should have seen it coming
From miles and miles away
You never meant to keep me
You never planned to stay

Your eyes were focused only
On the conquest and the chase
Well I've played this game before
But I lost it anyway

And you've won, yeah you've won
But look at what you've done

It's all in good fun you say
Only a game we play
But when you lose it hurts

Your smile in the morning
Well I just can't shake it off
You made it seem so real
Like you were in love

But you were only pretending
Only planning your trick ending
Where you take my heart and your run off

And you're gone, yeah you're gone
But look at what you've done

It's all in good fun you say
It’s only a game we play
But when you lose it hurts

I never knew (I never knew) it could hurt this bad (so bad)
I never knew (I never knew) you could be this cruel
But I was wrong I guess

‘Cause you've won
Yeah you've won
But look at what you've done

It's all in good fun you say
It’s only a game we play

It's all in good fun you say
It’s only a game we play

But when you lose it hurts
