Track Name: Willow Tree
We should be building up
You should be crossing your fingers
You should be puckering your lips
I know you're not ready for this
But can we turn the page?
Shouldn't we get into the shade?
Aren't you sick of the sun
Piercing your eyes?

In the shade of the willow tree
The willow tree

Can't believe I fell asleep
Can't believe you woke me up
I was dreaming at your feet
You kicked and said "Well, that's enough"
I'm ready for the night
I'm ready for everything you've got
Aren't you sick of the sun
Piercing your eyes?

In the shade of the willow tree
The willow tree
Track Name: I Just Want To Belong To You
Well, I came in guns a'blazin'
Didn't matter what was in my way
I want everything that I can't touch, I can't see
I just want one more day

It's a dead zone you're walking in, baby
You come in but you don't come back
I've been wandering, wandering, weakened for years
You should get used to that

I just want to belong to you
Felt your spine, you're mine, and it's finally coming through
I just want to belong to you
Felt your lips on my ear and you're telling me it's true

There ain't a damn thing in this safe
That I killed so many for
That I robbed so many for
That I changed so many for

I just want to belong to you
Felt your spine, you're mine, and it's finally coming through
I just want to belong to you
Felt your lips on my ear and you're telling me it's true
Track Name: The World Outside
I can't see through the curtains in your room
I can't see through the curtains in your room

What's so great about the world outside?
What's so great about the world outside?

Many boys have had my problem
It's so easy to break a heart
I'm not your best example
I'm not even the important part

What's so great about the world outside?
What's so great about the world outside?

Quick and dirty
Cheap and flirty
I've been lost on your body before
Like your eyes are now lost on me

You can't see through the curtains in my room
You can't see through the curtains in my room

Quick and dirty
Cheap and flirty
I've been lost on your body before
Like your eyes are now lost on me
