Track Name: It's Only Going To Get Worse
You're right to think I'm pretty queer
I got drunk and then I got weird
Pushed you away, tugged on your sleeve
Begged you to stay and then told you to leave

And it's only going to get worse
I will be your curse
It's only going to get worse
These things don't move in reverse

You're right to think I'm turning sour
I'm more of a tart with every hour
The fruit you picked is ripe no more
A bite reveals a rotten core

And it's only going to get worse
I will be your curse
It's only going to get worse
These things don't move in reverse

I don't care if you run away
Over land or sea
As long as you run away
From me

You're right to think that I'm a cad
I once was tender but I've gone bad
Too long alone with my bitter thoughts
Some hearts heal but mine, it rots

And it's only going to get worse
I will be your curse
It's only going to get worse
These things don't move in reverse
Track Name: Sex Is Always Better With Somebody New (Acoustic)
Sex is always better with somebody new
Someone who's never demolished you

But there's something to be said for a broken-in bed
And I don't want it all to myself tonight
I don't want it all to myself tonight

Sex is always better with someone you hardly know
Someone who works at some place you never go

Yeah, there's something to be said for a welcoming bed
And I don't want it all to myself tonight
I don't want it all to myself tonight

And I don't want to lie
Not anymore
Deep down inside
I know I'm a whore
And I don't want to hear
About commitment and trust
My heart and my love
Are ashes and dust
And if I can't learn to trust
I still know how to lust

Sex is always better when they don't belong to you
With your best friend's ex, every kiss is taboo

But there's something to be said for a well-worn bed
And I don't want it all to myself tonight
I don't want it all to myself tonight...
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Hurt Nobody
I'd love to love you
But I'm not very healthy
Like a cough that gets worse
No doctor or nurse
Could help you breath easy
While you're with me

I'd love to love you
But I won't make you happy
Like a sink that's been stained
When the water's been drained
I leave a mark
On the hearts that I love

I don't want to hurt no one
It just seems to happen
Again and again
And again and again
And again and again and again and again and again

I'd love to love you
But I can't let that happen
After three months
I'll be back on the hunt
It's the chase not the kill
That gives me the thrill

I'd love to love you
But you're better off with Michael
He's pretentious but sweet
And I'm so incomplete
Though I thought I might die
When my hand brushed your thigh

I don't want to hurt no one
It just seems to happen
Again and again
And again and again
And again and again and again and again and again
Track Name: Friends Who Cuddle
I thought you should know
I'm a cup full of woe
I'm a scar, I'm a wound
A broken guitar, out of tune
I'm poison, I'm a trap
I'm not the carefree chap
I let people think I am
It's a ruse, it's a sham

But tonight let's share a bed
I need a bosom to rest my head
I'm tired, I am sick
I'm a lantern burnt out of wick
And to look you'd never tell
Like an egg under its shell
I've secretly gone rotten
Probably best forgotten
Definitely best forgotten

But tonight let's share a bed
I need a bosom to rest my head
And to avoid future muddles
Let's just be friends who cuddle
Or why label us at all?
Then I won't have to make the call
When it's no longer fun
And tell you that we're done

Because I'm just too weak to do
The right thing and tell you that we're through
I am just too weak to do
The right thing and tell you that we're through
Track Name: The Ballad of William
I only know his first name
It's Bill, and what's worse
I have no idea what he looks like
I found his number in her purse

If I were a dictator
I'd have my secret police
Round up all the Williams
And crucify them along the streets
Track Name: Leaves a Scar
If we could make love
Instead of just having sex
Then I would only be able to think
Of his hands on your breasts

This is why my kisses feel
Like I could tear you apart
Like I'm trying to tear you apart

I sent you away in the morning
When the light was still dim
Because when you touched me
I could feel you touching him

This is why I look at you
Like I could tear you apart
Like my eyes could tear you apart

I would never be one to deny
The bond between you and I
But kisses don't make it all okay
And sorry doesn't burn the past away

I know I shouldn't have hid
Like some genie in his lamp
Turned away, in the night
My cheeks moist, my pillow damp

I didn't want to admit I felt
Like I could tear you apart
Like I wanted to tear you apart

And even if I tried to tell you how I hurt
Words couldn't wash away the dirt
Sorry only goes so far
And picking at it only leaves a scar
Sorry only goes so far
And picking at it only leaves a scar
Track Name: Lost Valentine
My lost Valentine
Where are you tonight?
Where have you gone away?
Hey, where have you gone away?

Does your love for me still linger?
Do you wear his ring upon your finger?
Or do you cry yourself to sleep
With no one to hear you weep?

Oh, lost Valentine
Just call and tell me you're all right
Why did I send you away?
Hey, how could I send you away?

Tonight are you sweating in his arms?
Are you alone on a bus back to your mama's farm?
Does he treat like he should?
Valentine, are you gone for good?
Oh, Valentine, are you gone for good?
Valentine, are you gone for good?
