Storyline Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Wild Card

I didn't see it coming
The kiss was so unpredictable
And maybe it's the mystery
In you that I'm addicted to it
It's overrated knowing somebody so well
It takes away the fire

It's funny when you tell me you don't think you're all that interesting
I beg to differ, with you I'm out here on the edge of my seat
And every minute guessing, holding my breath you're fueling that fire

And baby you're my wild card
My perfect little twist of fate
You're my first spark,
Shot in the dark
Favorite part of everything
And baby you're a sweet surprise
Lucky like a shooting star
You're a strong, free,
Just what I need,
Wild card

I'm an unsuspecting dreamer
Just marching through my every day
You don't follow any leaders
You make your mark, and make a change
You could see that I was living, oh
But baby now I'm living the life, yeah
You can blame it on the gravity
The reason that I'm falling
But the truth is I would jump
And girl you're everything I've wanted
It's a revelation,
Yeah, kind of elevation
Learning to fly

And baby you're my wild card
My perfect little twist of fate
You're my first spark
Shot in the dark
Favorite part of everything
And baby you're a sweet surprise
Lucky like a shooting star
You're a strong, free,
Just what I need,
Wild card

You're my wild card
Got me happy like a holiday
Out of the blue been waiting on you praying for you everyday

And baby you're a sweet surprise
Looking like a superstar
You're a strong, free,
Just what I need,
Wild card

Oh baby, all I need, all I need
You're my wild card, baby,
You're my wild card
You're my wild card, baby,
You're my wild card

Storyline

Everybody, they think they know us,
They think they've got us figured out,
Waste their words just trying to tell us,
How the typical, predictable, young love turns out

But little do they know girl, we've got a fast car
A James Dean spirit and a Norma Jean heart.
This blank sheet of paper has been waiting forever,
So baby just tell me where you wanna start

You and I can fall as hard as we want
Make the story all our own and blow Shakespeare's mind,
It's ours to write, it's our love and it's our life
And right or wrong, we'll write our own storyline

We can pack for Paris, plan for Tennessee,
Oceans, mountains, hey I don't care as long as you're with me
Running like crazy, kissing in public
Who cares what the world thinks?
Girl they don't know nothing about us

You and I can fall as hard as we want
Make the story all our own and blow Shakespeare's mind,
It's ours to write, it's our love and it's our life
And right or wrong, we'll write our own storyline

Let's make the story of our lives whatever we wanna make it,
There's rules about the way this works I think it's time that we break them,
From the moment that I met you there's just one thing I've been praying
If this boy gets you girl, girl would you take my name?

'cause you and I can fall as hard as we want
Make the story all our own and blow Shakespeare's mind,
It's ours to write, it's our love and it's our life
And right or wrong, we'll write our own storyline

I said right or wrong, we'll write our own storyline

It's all in our storyline,
It's part of our storyline,
It's all in our, all in our storyline

Still Fallin

You would think for all the days I've known you
I would have you memorized by now
Every question answered,
Every single page turned
But you keep me on the edge somehow

And every day with you is still a mystery
The sweetest story is falling from your lips
I hold on to every word,
Like it's the first one that I've heard
It's the only time I've ever felt like this this

After all this time, you'd think I'd be used to the pull of your gravity
But after flying so high for so long, who would think
I'm still learning, still burning, still falling

I still reach for your hand because I need it
Your kiss is still the spark that lights a fire
Yeah, you're still laughing with me,
Baby, and we're still making memories,
I'm still a fool for you, there's a million reasons why

After every late night street light drive
Every love you miss you kiss good night
Girl, your name is still my favorite
Always will be and I'm still wanting, still all in still falling

Still falling,
Still chasing, still nervous, still reeling, still dreaming about this

After every sunrise holding you,
After all the crazy we've been through
Every day every minute girl it's something new,
I'm still learning, still burning, still wanting, still all-in, still falling.

Still falling.

Tattoo

I could spray-paint "I love you" on that bridge or in the sky
And I could swear when you say it to me, there's a good chance I could fly
And I might, it seems like, yeah,
If it's gonna be any night, it might as well be tonight

There's this thing that you do, you don't know that it does something to me, yeah
It's in the way that you sway, that you talk, that you touch, that you kiss, that you breathe
That I need, you look at me, girl
You're shaking things up like you wouldn't believe,
Crashing my comfort zone, setting me free
It's a "who would've thought?", "you'd never dream..." kind of thing

Your name, your name sounds so good next to mine, just saying
And I think, I think I'm gonna put it in all my rhymes, baby
Cause with you, I'm gonna do quite a few things that I never thought I would do
Your name, your name, your name
Would be a good tattoo, yeah

Would be a good tattoo

Ink it in on my skin, sign me up, make it last against the time
Cause this is more than a picture that fades of a first date Friday night
It's unerasable, unmistakable, hey, everybody wants to know
Now I think I know, I'll wear it on my sleeve, I gotta let it show
Making a promise that I never wanna let you go

Your name, your name sounds so good next to mine, just saying
And I think, I think I'm gonna put it in all my rhymes, baby
Cause with you, I'm gonna do quite a few things that I never thought I would do
Your name, your name, your name
Would be a good tattoo, yeah

All my life, all I got is this one heart to give
And all my life, all this time, I've been searching for this
Oh and it looks like I found it
Yeah, I finally found it
Girl, it's you-oo-oo-oo

Your name, your name sounds so good next to mine
And I think, I think I'm gonna put it in all my rhymes, yeah
Cause with you, I'm gonna do quite a few things that I never thought I would do
Your name, your name, your name
Would be a good tattoo, yeah

Would be a good tattoo

Only you, baby
Only you, now
Only you, now

Invisible

Crowded hallways are the loneliest places
For outcasts and rebels
Or anyone who just dares to be different
And you've been trying for so long
To find out where your place is
But in their narrow minds
There's no room for anyone who dares to do something different
Oh, but listen for a minute

Trust the one
Who's been where you are wishing all it was
Was sticks and stones
Those words cut deep but they don't mean you're all alone
And you're not invisible
Hear me out,
There's so much more to life than what you're feeling now
Someday you'll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible
Oh, invisible

So your confidence is quiet
To them quiet looks like weakness
But you don't have to fight it
'Cause you're strong enough to win without a war
Every heart has a rhythm
Let yours beat out so loudly
That everyone can hear it
Yeah, I promise you don't need to hide it anymore
Oh, and never be afraid of doing something different
Dare to be something more

Trust the one
Who's been where you are wishing all it was
Was sticks and stones
Yeah, the words cut deep but they don't mean you're all alone
And you're not invisible
Hear me out,
There's so much more of this life than what you're feeling now
And someday you'll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible

These labels that they give you
just 'cause they don't understand
If you look past this moment
You'll see you've got a friend
Waving a flag for who you are
And all you're gonna do
Yeah, so here's to you
And here's to anyone who's ever felt invisible

Yeah, and you're not invisible
Hear me out,
There's so much more to life than what you're feeling now
And someday you'll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible
It'll be invisible

Interlude

You Think You Know Somebody

Open your heart, open your mind, let somebody in
Take a walk through you past, good and the bad, decide you can do this again
It's supposed to feel different, supposed to feel safe, safe like going home
But just like sand it slips through your hands before you know it your faith is gone

Every late night call, every morning kiss, all the "I can't live without you"s
And you say goodbye like this. don't you understand, do you even care
If you love me like you said you did well you'd still be standing here
You think you know somebody

It's all just a blur, the nights are the worst, this bed still smells like you
Wake up from the dreams, catch my breath, it takes everything I've got to move
Yeah it could've been a long walk talk to fix this,
The seas were getting rough but i thought we were worth this (worth a try, worth a fight, show you what I know, yeah)

Every late night call, every morning kiss, all the "I can't live without you"s
And you say goodbye like this. don't you understand, do you even care
If you love me like you said you did well you'd still be standing here
You think you know somebody

Tell me where did you go when the lights came up, I don't even know you anymore
Holding a knife I could see things better, yeah you've done this before

You think you know, yeah, you think you know somebody, think you know, you think you know, you think you know, think you know

Every late night call, every morning kiss, all the "I can't live without you"s
And you say goodbye like this. don't you understand, do you even care
If you love me like you said you did well you'd still be standing here
You think you know somebody

You think you know somebody, you think you know, you think you know,
You think you know somebody, yeah, you think you know, you think you know, you think you know somebody,
You never know, you never know

Flashlight

I get lost sometimes, like everybody else,
Lose tracking my lifelines, lose track of myself
And there's all kinds of reasons to be scared and run away
It's a good time for sad times like heaven couldn't be
Farther from the places, that heaven always finds me,
If nobody cares, tell me how is it I keep getting saved this way

[Chorus:]
It's a sunrise from a lonely night
Like a smile in a strangers eyes
It's the moments that save my life,
nobody knows about like flashlights
there's just enough hope when it shines,
to go one scared step at a time
When the world's too dark I find, your flashlight, yeah

I'm glad nobody's counting, I'm glad you don't keep score
My prayers are all the same, it's the ones I prayed before
Thank you, but forgive me, my rough around the edges heart is yours
And the moments where you swear I'm just screaming at the sky,
It's the strangest conversation or a friend just stopping by
and it's funny when I realize all the places that your miracles can hide

[Chorus]

Like a sunrise from a lonely night
Like a smile in a strangers eyes
It's the moments that save my life, nobody knows about
Like flashlights
and there's just enough hope when it shines, to go one scared step at a time
When the world's too dark I find, your flashlight

Oh, who am I?
Dust and water,
Touched by the Divine

Tell me who, who am I?
you keep shining on me, shining on me, yeah
shining on me

It's the moments that save my life nobody knows about
It's like a flashlight
(there's just enough hope when it shines)
And its just enough hope when it shines,
(to go one scared step at a time) to go one step at a time
(when the world's to dark I find your flashlight)
When the world's too dark I find your flashlight

It's a sunrise from a lonely night
It's a smile in a strangers eyes
It's the moments that save my life nobody knows about
Like flashlights
It's just enough hope when it shines, to go one scared step at a time
When the world's too dark I find, your flashlight

(Like a sunrise from a lonely night
like a smile in a strangers eyes) who am I
(its the moments that save my life nobody know about
like flashlights) oh yeah
(its just enough to hope when it shines,
to go one scared step at a time
when the world too dark I find)
you keep shining your light, you keep shining your light, eh eh

I'm just finding your flashlight

When Did You Stop Loving Me

When did you stop loving me
You let me down so perfectly
and you walked away so easily
baby, tell me, when did you stop loving me

Tell me, when did you give up on us
did I love too much or not enough
and is there someone else you're thinking of
and when did you give up on us

What do I do
with the mess you made of me
with all that I lose
I think you owe me one thing
Ya know, I don't need you're reasons
or your sympathy
girl, just tell me, when did you stop loving me

Tell me, when did you start drifting away
and have you loved me less
with every single day
If you were over me, girl, tell me,
why did you stay
When did you start drifting away

What do I do
with the mess you made of me
with all that I lose
I think you owe me one thing
Ya know, I don't need you're reasons
or your sympathy
girl, just tell me, when did you stop loving me

I just wanna know
When did you stop loving me

Is this really how you want it to end
with the like of love
and the lost of a friend
Now I'm scared of loving anybody else again
is this how you want it to end

When did you stop loving me?

Baby, tell me, when did you give up on me
did you give up on me
when did you give up
when did you give up

oh, tell me, when did you stop
when did you stop
when did you stop loving me, yeah

When did you give up?

Like I Was Saying (Jam)

Baby by tell me when did you give up on me, give up on me
When did you go, when did you go
Oh tell me when did you stop, when did you stop,
When did you stop loving me yeah
When did you give up

Secret Love

We get so close but we never touch,
Gotta wear this mask for just long enough
To get away from all the eyes that stare us down.
Like two criminals with the dream to steal,
Not a trace to be found of the way we feel.
With our hearts on line, we give in and we get away.

Secret love, all the things we do,
For secret love, baby me and you,
Got a secret love.
Stayin' under cover and out of sight,
If nobody knows, then we're doin' it right.
Secret love.
Got a secret love.

When you're living a life that you gotta deny,
When you feel how we feel, but you gotta keep lying,
It's only gonna mess you up inside.
When you walk by each other in a crowded room,
And nobody sees how I'm looking at you,
But we'll meet in a minute at the rendezvous.
Only you know what I mean.

Secret love, all the things we do,
For secret love, baby me and you,
Got a secret love.
Stayin' under cover and out of sight,
If nobody knows, then we're doin' it right.
Secret love.
Got a secret love.

We're in love but nobody knows.
We're in love but nobody knows.
We're in love but nobody knows it yet.
Are we in love if nobody knows?
Are we in love if nobody knows?
Are we in love if nobody knows it yet?
I guess it's a secret.

oh yeah

Secret love, all the things we do,
For secret love, baby me and you,
Got a secret love.
Under cover and out of sight,
If nobody knows, then we're doin' it right.
Got a secret love.
We got a secret love.
Secret love.

Are we in love if nobody knows?
We in love if nobody knows,
Are we in love nobody knows?
Well I guess it's a secret.

Nothing Like Starting Over

Hit me last night like a ton of bricks,
if this is really it, this is starting over
There's no should've, could've, would've said this,
done that, no turning back, no more I wonders
No harm done, no hard feelings,
maybe some other time but gives me some peace of mind
If that was the end of the ride, I'm getting back in line

Cause I'm telling you
there's nothing like starting over,
there's nothing like shedding a heartache,
writing a new page to say what you wanna say
There's nothing like a heart wide open,
that bittersweet comfort of knowing you
can let go and take the weight off your shoulders
There's nothing like starting over,
there's nothing like starting over

Love's got a way of letting you know
when the time to hold on or time to let go, tells you so
It's the cold in the kiss, of looking away,
the say what you mean, well do you mean what you say?
I don't really know
It's time to reset, rethink, reposition,
there's nothing wrong with me, it's just a condition
It's the science of love, fly when we fall, through it all,
we turn with the tide, cause we're free on the other side

There's nothing like starting over,
there's nothing like shedding a heartache,
writing a new page to say what you wanna say
There's nothing like a heart wide open,
that bittersweet comfort of knowing you
can let go and take the weight off your shoulders
There's nothing like starting over,
there's nothing like starting over, starting over

yeah

One is a lonely number,
it kind of makes you wonder
how starting back at zero can feel so nice,
but it feels just right

Cause there just ain't nothing like,
there's nothing like starting over,
there's nothing like shedding a heartache,
writing a new page to say what you wanna say
There's nothing like a heart wide open,
that bittersweet comfort of knowing you
can let go and take the weight off your shoulders
Nothing like starting over, yeah yeah yeah,
no there's nothing like,
no there's nothing like starting over, no, no, no, no, no
Starting over

If It's Just Me

If it's just me,
I think we need to talk about some things
If it's just me,
Then tell me what you want, say anything
If it's just me,
I'll hang up now and call you back when I've had time to think

If it's just me,
Crying alone in the middle of the night
Then it's just me,
And my tendency to overanalyze
And if it's just me,
Holding on to someone letting go,
Then I will let go of you

I'll take the blame, take the shame, walk away, no questions asked
Leave the best of me with you and you can leave me in your past
No battle cry, no battle scars
We're only down one broken heart
I guess you're free, if it's just me

If it's just me

If it's just me,
One shadow on the wall on a coffee cup
Then it's just me,
And a picture hanging I can't let go of
And if it was just me,
Why didn't I know you needed me to keep my big mouth shut?
Yeah, cause when it come down to it, you know

I'll take the blame, take the shame, walk away, no questions asked
Leave the best of me with you and you can leave me in your past
No battle cry, no battle scars
We're only down one broken heart
I guess you're free, if it's just me

Yeah, yeah

I've got no problem holding on
I've got no problem being wrong
But if you're gone, then after all
Well, it's just me

I'll take a walk, clear my thoughts, move along, no questions asked
Take whatever's left of me and leave you in my past

No more crying, no more scars,
I'd love to stay, but I got to say
I'd rather be free, if its-if it's just me, oh

If it's just me, it's just me
If it's just me
Then it's just me, yeah

Love Too Much

Tell me where did we go wrong
If it's all good intentions
Why are we scared of living
Yeah the weight of the world
Its hold enough to hold already
Why does it gotta be so heavy
Baby it's the little things
Maybe we can change the world
One heart at a time

You can't say you love too much
You can't say you care enough
There's no such thing as reaching to far
We've all got a heart
And you can't say love too much
You can't say love too much

As simple as I word you say
You never know the lives you can change
Never know the souls you can save
And I bet it happens everyday
Cause everybody's got a story, a past, or a song of glory
Just take a look around
Somebody needs you now
You're somebody's hero somehow

You can't say you love too much
You can't say you care enough
There's no such thing as reaching to far
We've all got a heart
No you can't say love too much
And no you can't say love too much

No
I can't sleep tonight
Its burning in my mind
If I could change the world one heart at a time
Oh I would start with mine

Yeah
(can't say, can't say)
Oh you can't say

You can't say you love too much
You can't say you care enough
There's no such thing as reaching to far
We've all got a heart
No you can't say love too much
(can't say can't say)
No you can't say love too much
(can't say can't say)
