Track Name: "You And Me" - Bess Rogers
You and me are floating on the sea
We are stranded in time
I will take your life vest
And you'll drown a happy man

Let go of your fear
‘Cause everything I've said
Has been a joke ‘til now
And I'm done fooling around

You and me are seeing eye to eye on current affairs
You try your best to pinpoint me down
But I'm already there

Let go of your mind
‘Cause everything I've said
Has been a joke ‘til now
And I'm done fooling around

You should have been a scientist
With all those little clues you've figured out
I should have been a driver
I should have driven faster
I should have really run you down
Run you down
Run you down

You and me are just a ticking bomb with no time to abuse
Couldn't we just take a vacation and defuse

Let go of your past
‘Cause everything I've said
Has been a joke ‘til now
And I'm done fooling around

‘Cause everything I've said
Has been a joke ‘til now
And I'm done fooling around
Track Name: "I Would Never" - Bess Rogers
Even in my sleep, the game was fixed
You wouldn't believe
And now that all this dust is in the air
It's harder to breathe

I would never call you that
I would never hurt you that bad
I would never, I would never, I would never even think of that

People on the street, they wear their rings with a sigh of relief
Never in our lives did we imagine things so obscene

I would never call you that
I would never hurt you that bad
I would never, I would never, I would never even think of that
(x2)
Track Name: "Modern Man" - Bess Rogers
Modern man
Modern man what have you done?
I know you're there
I know you’re waiting ‘til I’m gone
Cause I hear you breath
I think I saw you make your move
So lie down
We're gonna make this easy on you
Give a gal a little time to think
Give a gal a little bit to drink
Give a gal a little bit to sink her teeth

Be fair, we're only wasting time again
And it’s not so kind
If it doesn't strike you like a pain full fist
‘Cause I know you’re there
I know you’re waiting for the same damn thing
So lie down
We're going to make this easy on you
Give a gal a little time to think
Give a gal a little bit to drink
Give a gal a little bit to sink her teeth

La,da, da (repeated)

Nothing’s ever gonna change
Everyone you know is tired
Nothing’s ever gonna change
Everyone you know is tired
I'm so tired, I'm so tired giving out and putting in
I'm so tired, I'm so tired of the same thing, the same thing

I’m so tired

Lie down
We’re gonna make this easy on you
Lie down
We’re gonna make this easy on you

Give a gal a little time to think
Give a gal a little bit to drink
Give a gal a little time to think now
Give a gal a little bit to drink
Oh, give a gal a little bit to sink her teeth
Track Name: "Undone" - Bess Rogers [FREE DOWNLOAD]
Can it be, the book is on your side
You read it left to right,
It writes itself in your eyes...

49 million on your mark,
Ready and set to fight
Faster than you could run.
Well if I knew the kind of situation,
then I would be underground
And if I could change the world around me,
then I wouldn't be so down.
Baby can't you see I'm the kind of girl that could easily come undone?

Parking lot, you're parking in your spot,
writing your feelings down,
and checking them off with pride.
49 million on the couch
watching the walls collide,
watching their freedom die.

Well if I knew the kind of situation,
then I would be underground
And if I could change the world around me,
then I wouldn't be so down.
Baby can't you see I'm the kind of girl that could easily come undone?

Now what else can I do?

Now what else can I do?

Well if I knew the kind of situation,
then I would be underground
And if I could change the world around me,
then I wouldn't be so down.
Baby can't you see I'm the kind of girl that could easily come undone?

Now what else can I do?
Track Name: "Sunday" - Bess Rogers
Underneath the bricks,
Underneath the dirt,
Down below the roots,
My love grows within the earth.

Easy now, you stare down in,
From higher ground if you want it, you have to dig.

Underneath the skin
Settled in the bones,
You want to leave your mark,
But my heart beats for anyone…

Easy now, you stare down in,
From higher ground if you want it, you have to dig.
Track Name: "Only One" - Bess Rogers
Sing into my ear, are we really hearing any sounds the same?
What if all these words that I whisper softly only cause you pain?
Blurring the lines to see you’re the only one like me

Count from 1 to 10, but these heavy eyes are just about to burst
Open up my mouth but you nod your head before I say a word
And now the differences are buried in kisses
Bending my mind to believe you’re the only one like me

Oh, I can feel it now your gravity colliding into mine
Pieces of your skin in fingernails the layers peel with time

So when the light reflects, showing your image
I focus my eyes to see you’re the only one like me
Track Name: "Earthquake" - Bess Rogers
You wait enough and the end of the day will come round,
Feel the crunch under my feet of sacred ground
Well, I don't love you and you don't love me.

There's a knock on every door, and it's not ever gonna stop
So tell me why I don't want to go
Tell me why I don't want to go down with you.

There's an earthquake shaking below this clumsy floor,
There's a rumor spreading around that I want more,
Well, I don't love you and you don't love me
I've been telling all these lies my whole life,
It's never going to stop,
So tell me why I don't want to go
Tell me why I don't want to go down with you.

So tell me why I don't want to go
Tell me why I don't want to go down with you.

There's a knock on every door, and it's not ever gonna stop
And if you wait your goddamned time, you'll find every second counts.
So tell me why I don't want to go
Tell me why I don't want to go down with you
Track Name: "Waltz Me" - Bess Rogers
Talk all you want babe, you know I love to waste time,
Tone in your voice says, "happy just waiting in line"
Well apathy won't settle my mind;

Just take the good part for yourself,
And leave the worst out for love left over.

All these ideas are circulating in my mouth
Look straight at you and see that you're tuning me out
Well I can't help just hanging around.

Just take the good part for yourself,
And leave the worst out for love left over
Track Name: "Notice" - Bess Rogers
Keep the your coat on, keep one foot at the door
There's nothing left on the inside anymore
Well the walls are down, the window is broke
The doorway only opens out
You're out of luck, so say goodbye
I'm heading out tonight, you won't even notice I am gone
Out of the bright lights, you won't even know I'm gone
Track Name: "See Me? See You!" - Bess Rogers
I know you only are here for a little while
Back against the wall
Only showing me your profile
Still I can read your thoughts so clear

And now I see every answer and it's in my hands
And the meteors are swirlin’ inside my head
I won't let it go like everyone goes in the end

You want to run but you see me, see you
You want to go but you don't know where to
Take my hand you'll be safe here inside these arms

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do (3x)

‘Cause nothing changes
When you call my name it hurts
And every move that you make is lifting that curse
I only wanted a fair chance to be the one

You want to run
But you see me, see you
You want to go
But you don’t know where to
Take my hand you'll be safe here inside these arms

You want to run
But you see me, see you
You want to go
But you don't know where to
(4x)

Take my hand you'll be safe here inside these arms
