Track Name: Chance Happening
I had absolutely no way of predicting the blunt commotion that was you
And all of my plans went up in smoke, and I thought you were joking
But you never once withdrew.
Had a flawless reputation, so you can imagine my surprise
That out of everyone you picked me...the flustered little shifty-eyed
girl who was so unrefined

But I think you should know by now that the jig is up
And I think if you knew somehow that would be enough 'cause

This was a chance happening
Who would've thought it'd be happening to me
And how it feels so fine
I think about you all the time
And this is a new awakening
I'm gonna follow wherever you take me and
Take my chance on this chance happening

I'm so thankful you can't see through the phone when we talk at night
'Cause with my nervous, sweaty palms and my blushing face
Believe me I'm a sight for sore eyes
And had it not been for your sweet, southern charm and your way with words
Who knows how far we'd have come along
Since i've never been one of those go get 'em kind of girls

But I think you should know by now that I'm into you
And me playing naive and coy, well boy it just won't do 'cause

This was a chance happening
Who would've thought it'd be happening to me
And how it feels so fine
I think about you all the time
And this is a new awakening
I'm gonna follow wherever you take me and
Take my chance on this chance happening

And I will hold on so tight
And I won't lose sight of you
Because you've really got something
Oh yes I think we've really got something
No, no I know we've really got something and


This was a chance happening
Who would've thought it'd be happening to me
And how it feels so fine
I think about you all the time
And this is a new awakening
I'm gonna follow wherever you take me and
Take my chance on this chance happening

Take my chance on this, chance...chance happening.
Track Name: Fake (Shake It Up)
I'm through with making excuses
If I'm gonna do this, then I wanna own
No simple justification
No room for complacency
I gotta go, oh

Don't owe an explanation
For the look on my face
Give me the satisfaction
And let me show you something I can't...

Fake
I'm taking all I can take
I'm breaking out of the people pleasing
For no good reason
Grab the moment and shake, shake it up.

This is a bold intervention
I've never liked tension
But it's gotta stay, hey
I'm over asking permission
No pansy ass-kissing
I'm breaking the situation

So done with that performance
I'm not a smile glued in place
But give me the satisfaction
And let me show you something I can't...

Fake
I'm taking all I can take
I'm breaking out of the people pleasing
For no good reason
Grab the moment and shake, shake it up.

You think you're so authentic
Until you see that you're so...

Fake
I'm taking all I can take
I'm breaking out of the people pleasing
For no good reason
Grab the moment and shake
No more fake
I'm taking all I can take
I'm breaking out of the people pleasing
For no good reason
Grab the moment and shake, shake it up.

Shake it up,
Fake, shake it up.
Shake it up.

I'm through with making excuses.
Track Name: Green
Gripping at the wheel
My feeble hands are trembling
So much I am sorry for
So much I can't take back
Had my time to heal
And Lord knows I'd give anything
To salvage what we once were
Cover up the cracks

There's no easy way to let somebody down
And if only I could toughen up right now

But all I feel is green and all I am is mean
I've had hours to find the perfect words
And still I've got nothing
Pulling into town
My heart is sinking now
Why can't Cleveland be just a few more miles away?
I had many plans in mind for today
And this ain't one of them.

That's not how I intended to handle things at all
A drive-by makeshift ending
I truly am appalled
But I swear I'm sincere
There's a heart beneath my armor
Though frankly I fear
That doesn't change a thing

Cause there's no easy way to let somebody down
And if only I'd grow thicker skin somehow

But all I feel is green and all I am is mean
I've had hours to find the perfect words
And still I've got nothing
Pulling into town
My heart is sinking now
Why can't Cleveland be just a few more miles away?
I had many plans in mind for today
And this ain't one of them.

I'm passing each familiar face
And I fill with panic with every breath I draw but
I'm thankful for each red light that I catch
'Cause it keeps me further off
Gives me time to stall...

Cause there's no easy way to let somebody down
And if only I could muster up some courage right now

But all I feel is green and all I am is mean
I've had hours to find the perfect words
And still I've got nothing
Pulling into town
My heart is breaking now
Why can't Cleveland be just a few more miles away?
I had many plans in mind for today
And this ain't one of them.

No, this ain't one of them.
There's no easy way to let somebody down.
Track Name: In Love With Believing
Congratulations, you have twisted all you've taken
And it suits you well, did it all yourself
And you've made your contribution
To my tendency for losing
Yet another year, how did I end up here?
And every time you let me down
I swear to not let you around
Cause then you'd prove why you're the best
At bringing out the worst in me

What would it take
What could I pay
To erase all the places you live in my brain
Leave it to you to deceive me all over again
I've fallen in love with believing.

Another chapter, we begin a new disaster
And it's all in vain, believing you're gonna change
You lure me in effortlessly, present yourself so well it seems
But it's all a scam, I don't know who I am

And every time you let me down
I tell myself you'll come around
I'm too ensnared to bail on us
How long till I can say enough?

What would it take
What could I pay
To erase all the places you live in my brain
Leave it to you to deceive me all over again
I've fallen in love with believing.

I know that I should let you go
It's just my thing I cling to hope
It doesn't help that you know me
There are moments you show me exactly what I want to see

So, what would it take
What could I pay
To erase all the places you live in my brain
Leave it to you to deceive me all over again
Since I've fallen in love...

So what would it take
What could I pay
To erase all the places you live in my brain
Leave it to you to deceive me all over again
I've fallen in love with believing.
I've fallen in love with believing.
Track Name: Blink
Little lady with your pocketful of problems
Come spend the day with me
In my colossal city that dwarfs the tallest of tall.
And your furrowed brow suggests you're troubled now
But I urge you to let it go, let it go
Don't get wrapped up in your head, oh, oh

Take a look at my skyline
And know that in due time you'll be better
With the world and its wonders
You've no time for blunders like this
Blink and you might miss
Blink and you might miss

Little lady what's the use in sitting idly by
And looking through the glass
Forsaking time and letting opportunity slip right past.
Why not cast off that frown that reads you're troubled now
I urge you to let it go, let it go
Don't get wrapped up in your head, oh, oh

Take a look at my skyline
And know that in due time you'll be better
With the world and its wonders
You've no time for blunders like this
Blink and you might miss
Blink and you might miss

There's something tangible and palpable
Right within your reach
Just put things in perspective
And find that there's no need
To dwell on things you can't control
There will come a time to pay your toll
But for now I say just let it go, let it go

And take a look at my skyline
And know that in due time you'll be better
With the world and its wonders
You've no time for blunders like this
Take a look at my skyline
And know that in due time you'll be better
With the world and its wonders
You've no time for blunders like this
Blink and you might miss
Blink and you might miss
Blink and you might miss
Blink and you might miss
