Track Name: The Last Song
Looking at pictures, lying in my bed, nobody but me
Floating on memories, drifting in a sea of self-pity
Your look in the picture tells me not to worry, says "I'm yours baby"
Yeah right, I'm eating my own lies, cause I know the your brown eyes no longer see me

I can't believe that I'm still thinking about you
And I'm fighting my emotions, I know they're still true
And I can't even get it to tell you I miss you

Oh, who knows how long I'll wait for you?
Cause I've been waiting for you now for oh so long
Who knows how long till I get over you?
Let me go, you don't even notice how I'm in your control

Where did you go to, why did you leave me? Guess I'll never know
Yeah right, I know why, but I'd rather lie and pretend the reason is still unknown
Why don't you do me a favor and next time you see me
Let's not talk about all of our new things or flings
I don't want to know about the new you
Just you from the past, and what we had

I can't believe that I'm still writing about you
And I'm fighting my emotions, I know they're still true
And I can't even get it to tell you I miss you

Oh, who knows how long I'll wait for you?
Cause I've been waiting for you for oh so long
Who knows how long till I get over you?
Let me go, you don't even notice that I'm in your control
Oh, you're killing me slowly, got me feeling like shit, I'm straight missing you

I hope you like this song
Cause it's the last one I'll ever write for you
Never hurt again, never gonna be my friend, I tell you baby girl this is the end
It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you
Yes it's the last song for you
Track Name: Morning Light
I've seen that look before tonight
Underneath those tearstained diamonds in your eyes
It tells me that you're all right
Such a harmful little line

I know you're scared I won't like what you're saying
And I'll just head for the door, no delaying

If I said that I love you
What makes you think that I'll stop soon
So just speak your mind
I'm by your side
You'll see I'm right, by the time that you and I can see the morning light

Now I'm man with his good foot stuck in Neverland
No steady job or a home with a yard, and damn the ten year plan
But I think you kind of like the whole world wrapped up on our own shoestring
We can trade in if you prefer a good ol' fashion ring

You've got to let me know what you think about this
If you want me to go and change something about it

If you said that you love me
Well I'd hold nothing higher above me
So just speak your mind
I'm by your side
You'll be alright, by the time that you and I can see the morning light

So catch your breath and take your time
Common let's stay in and get it all out tonight
Cause nothing hurts or cuts you up inside
Like saying you're just fine

If you won't open your lips then I'll kiss them
And wait as long as it takes to listen

If I said that I love you
What makes you think that I'll stop soon
So just speak your mind
I'm by your side
You'll see I'm right, by the time that you and I can see the morning light
Track Name: Take Me Home, Country Roads
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River -
Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Growin' like a breeze

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered 'round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice
In the mornin' hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And as I get to drivin' I get the feelin'
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads
Take me home, now country roads
Take me home, now country roads
