Track Name: Say Goodbye to My Good Name
It's so hard to make a stand
When I'm on the losing end
Of goodbye
Took a stroll on down the branch
To the place we first held hands
And said goodbye to my good name

Heard a tale about myself
Crazy nonsense people sell
Crazy games they play
Blowing smoke right in my face
Just to put me in my place
And say goodbye to my good name

I'm the rose you're the wine
We sing in syncopated time
A winging prayer
Rough our road
Weak our vine
We take a wreckin (reckon) every time
And say goodbye to my good name

Go on and break what you cannot mend
In another life we could have been
I ain't wed to my mistakes
Every day's a chance to change
Or say goodbye to my good name
Track Name: Please Tell Me
please tell me what's on your mind
what's that shadow over your heart
I thought you’d be here by my side forever
so please tell me why we've drifted apart

you can't hold a person to their words
a promise must be kept of free will
and even though your heart has grown colder
I loved you then and I love you still

you always told me that I was so special
a touch like no other you once said
so don’t tell me that life you pledged is over
or your undying love now is dead

don’t take the dreams we used to share
and cast them aside throw them away
for if dreams become only memories
I’ll lay awake and search for yesterday
