Track Name: Enough To Me
Enough To Me

Buy high end things
All the time
Drop weight
Half your size
Should be the aim
Unrealistic is all the rage

When you spend money on
Useless things money can buy
When you come down from the high

And the weight of the world
Is heavy on your shoulders
I will lift it off
Fall onto me
When hurting and it’s tough
Know you’re incredibly loved
Above and beyond enough
You’re enough to me

Open up a magazine
See what beauty really means
Every single flaw, fixed
Own the latest things
And if you don’t
You won’t feel whole
Don’t, you won’t feel beautiful
Oh, let go and you will see
You’re all you need

When the weight of the world
Is heavy on your shoulders
I will lift it off
Fall onto me
When hurting and it’s tough
Know you’re incredibly loved
Above and beyond enough
You’re enough to me

Let me take the blindfold off your eyes
Control off your mind
Tangled web they weaved
Makes us lose reality sometimes
Sometimes…
Sometimes…
Sometimes…

When the weight of the world
Is heavy on your shoulders
I will lift it off
Fall onto me
When hurting and it’s tough
Know you’re incredibly loved
Above and beyond enough
You’re enough to me

You're enough, you're enough, you're enough to me
Track Name: Leather Shoes
Oh, oo woah oo oh, oh, oo woah oo oh, oh oh

Save it for somebody else
I don’t want to hear it
Put it on a shelf
I don’t care how many girls
Fell for all of those opening words
I don’t care how much money you make
I don’t care how much a polar bear weighs
Stop trying to break the ice

Round and round and around you go
With all that talk and nothing to show

You and those leather shoes
And that cocky attitude
The lines that you say
Won’t make it easy for ya
They drive me crazy
But not in a good way
And I think you try
But the clothes you wear
Don’t matter the brand or style
Won’t get you closer to takin’ off mine

Oh, oo woah oo oh, oh, oo woah oo oh, oh oh

Save it for someone who cares
I admire the effort but bring it elsewhere
Because I’m not entertained
By the conversation you’re trying to make
Who the hell are you trying to fool?
Don’t you know you’re coming off like a tool?

Maybe you’ll figure out soon
Your ego doesn’t need to fill the whole room

You and those leather shoes
And that cocky attitude
The lines that you say
Won’t make it easy for ya
They drive me crazy
But not in a good way
And I think you try
But the clothes you wear
Don’t matter the brand or style
Won’t get you closer to takin’ off mine

Boy, if you don’t slow it down
Give it a rest, catch your breath
I bet…no one will be interested

In you or those leather shoes
And that cocky attitude
The lines that you say
Won’t make it easy for ya
All that talkin’
Tell me there’s an off button
And I think you try
But the clothes you wear
Don’t matter the brand or style
Won’t get you closer to takin’ off mine

Oh, oo woah oo oh, oh, oo woah oo oh, oh oh
Everybody c'mon
Oh, oo woah oo oh, oh, oo woah oo oh, oh oh
You and those leather shoes
Track Name: Memory
Memory

How about I get out of your way?
Think you’d like it if I beat you to the punch
Stood up and walked away
So you wouldn’t have much to clean up
I’ll be dust underneath your rug
Dirt underneath your shoes
You never will notice me
But I refuse to lose myself
If I ever lose you

So no more waiting
No more not feeling whole
When I leave you
You won’t exist anymore
No more racking my brain
For ways to try to make you stay
I’m better off
I will try everyday
To fade you away from my memory

How about I fade into the back?
You won’t see me camouflaged in white and black
I bet you’d like it if all of my colors disappeared
Into the atmosphere
But I refuse to lose my light
Just because you don’t want to see it shine

So no more waiting
No more not feeling whole
When I leave you
You won’t exist anymore
No more racking my brain
For ways to try to make you stay
I’m better off
I will try everyday
To fade you away from my memory

No more questions you answered them through your actions
No more half assed love
Making me feel like I’m not enough
Now that you’re out of my way not taking up any space
I see the different page we were on
I am on to better things
You will always stay this small

So no more waiting
No more not feeling whole
When I leave you
You won’t exist anymore
No more racking my brain
For ways to try to make you stay
I’m better off
I will try everyday
To fade you away from my memory
Track Name: Don't Say It
Don't Say It

Get off your high horse
Why the fuck are you up there anyway
Don’t understand how one person can have so much
Negative energy
If you don’t have something nice to say
Then don’t say it
Didn’t they teach you that in high school or 1st grade even
No one wants to hear it

Don’t say it, don’t say it
Cause no one gives a shit
Don’t say it, don’t say it
About your nasty opinion
Don’t say it, don’t say it
Did I even ask in the first place
Don’t say it, don’t say it
I’m pretty sure I didn’t
So don’t say it

The thing about being a bitch
Is it never leaves your system
You can try to cover it up
But good luck with trying to change that situation
When true colors show, true colors stay
True colors glow
And they never go away

Don’t say it, don’t say it
Cause no one gives a shit
Don’t say it, don’t say it
About your nasty opinion
Don’t say it, don’t say it
Did I even ask in the first place
Don’t say it, don’t say it
I’m pretty sure I didn’t
So don’t say it

You may be high and mighty
You may have a lot of money
You may think you own the world
But you’re not and you don’t
So let me help you back down to Earth

Cause you’ve been walking around
With a stick up your ass and it must be uncomfortable
Nose up in the air
So high next to your horse in its stable
So the next time you say
Something out loud
Make sure you shut your fucking mouth

Don’t say it, don’t say it
Cause no one gives a shit
Don’t say it, don’t say it
About your nasty opinion
Don’t say it, don’t say it
Did I even ask in the first place
Don’t say it, don’t say it
I’m pretty sure I didn’t
So don’t say it
Track Name: Take It Easy
Take It Easy

Take it easy
Babe believe me
I’ve been there before
Mind goes back and forth
Can’t break up the noise
Like tug of war

But when you look around
And there’s no one there
And you realize
It’s all in your head

Baby, don’t you even worry
I know days get heavy
Little things can bring you way down
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll say
Worries are for nothing
So I’m gonna drop em’
I’m gonna stop em’
I’m gonna take it easy

Take it easy
Learn to breathe babe
Deeply in and out
Bright sides come after dark
Good times after hard
That sun will come back around

And when you feel
Heavy like a stone
And you lost your way
To the end of the rainbow

Baby, don’t you even worry
I know days get heavy
Little things can bring you way down
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll say
Worries are for nothing
So I’m gonna drop em’
I’m gonna stop em’
I’m gonna take it easy

Way up in the sky
Where worries should live
Lies the moon, and sun, and stars
To show how bright we could live (2x)

Baby, don’t you even worry
I know days get heavy
Little things can bring you way down
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll say
Worries are for nothing
So I’m gonna drop em’
I’m gonna stop em’
I’m gonna take it easy
Track Name: Take It Easy (Acoustic)
Take It Easy

1, 2, 3, 4...

Take it easy
Babe believe me
I’ve been there before
Mind goes back and forth
Can’t break up the noise
Like tug of war

But when you look around
And there’s no one there
And you realize
It’s all in your head

Baby, don’t you even worry
I know days get heavy
Little things can bring you way down
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll say
Worries are for nothing
So I’m gonna drop em’
I’m gonna stop em’
I’m gonna take it easy

Take it easy
Learn to breathe babe
Deeply in and out
Bright sides come after dark
Good times after hard
That sun will come back around

And when you feel
Heavy like stones
And you lost your way
To the end of the rainbow

Baby, don’t you even worry
I know days get heavy
Little things can bring you way down
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll say
Worries are for nothing
So I’m gonna drop em’
I’m gonna stop em’
I’m gonna take it easy

Way up in the sky
Where worries should live
The sun, the moon, and all the stars
Show how bright we could live (2x)

Baby, don’t you even worry
I know days get heavy
Little things can bring you way down
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll say
Worries are for nothing
So I’m gonna drop em’
I’m gonna stop em’
I’m gonna take it easy
