Track Name: I Don't Want To Be Alone
I don’t know what to do should I leave or wait for you
If I go right now my fear of being lonely could come true
I don’t know if you know that you play me in slow-mo
I’m not sure if that’s a good thing but I think I like it though

And everyone tells me
That you got different means
I guess I’m just hoping for luck
For luck

[chorus]
I don’t wanna be alone I want you
You’re so unreliable and it’s cute
One look at your face
My feels misplaced
I just want
You

I forget all the things you can do to me that sting
Only light that I can see you in is one where angels sing
I don’t know if you try to avoid the places I
Like to go when you’re the only thing that’s racing through my mind

And everyone’s surprised
I’m quick to compromise
What’s wrong versus what’s right
Away
Away

[chorus]

What’s your number
I’m your number
One fan standing on the sideline
Wanna see you
Try to be you
Sit around and wait for you to waste my time
Time

I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be alone

[chorus 2x]
Track Name: Petting Zoo
I got time
My schedule’s clear
Nothing else
Could keep me here
Seize the moment that’s my moment I won’t share with anyone
Finally I think I’m fine with being who it is that I’ll become

[chorus]
‘Cuz nobody knows me like I do
But everyone is telling me what I’m ‘sposed to do
And nobody knows what goes on in my head
But everyone is acting like all my thoughts can be read so I’m through
Being the petting zoo

Packed my bags
Booked a flight
Don’t know where
I’ll sleep tonight
What’s the matter doesn’t matter I’m not scared of anything
I can take it I can make it bring on all the world can bring

[chorus]
Cuz nobody knows me like I do
But everyone is telling me what I’m ‘sposed to do
And nobody knows what goes on in my head
But everyone is acting like all my thoughts can be read so I’m through
I’m through
I’m through
Being the petting zoo
‘Cuz nobody knows me like I do
Nobody knows me like I do
Nobody knows me like I do
Nobody knows me like I do
Track Name: Speak Your Mind
Speak your mind I’m
Not the kind to judge
You are the one I love
I don’t need you here
I don’t get to hear your voice
I don’t think that I got
Much choice

[chorus]
But you look at me like I can’t survive
Without you
And you look at me like I’d rather die
Than have you leave me for another one believe me I am not the one you think you know
It’d be easy to pack and go

Bet that cigarette was placed
Perfect on your perfect face
Did you really lose your way or is this you avoiding fate
Bet you wish you’d had enough
Of this know you’re feeling rough
Heard you’re crying in your bed wanting to take back what you said

[chorus]

‘Cuz I don’t need you
You want me to
Play your games right
I win every time

I don’t need you
You want me to
Play your games right
I win every time

[chorus 2x]
Track Name: You Don't Know Me
You don’t give me what I need
You just like me on my knees
You can’t stand it when I speak
So I was quiet
But I ain’t weak no no

[chorus]
‘Cuz I might be a little late to this party
But once I’m awake you’ll be sorry
You don’t know me
You don’t know me
And I might not always get what goes down but
Trust me baby I’ll look around eventually
Baby you don’t know me

Hands by the grace of God
You are blessed but you know your heart is not
You got moves you got groove that you know ain’t cheap
What you got you get cuz it’s just too easy

[chorus]

[rap]
Is it what’s down my pants that keeps you coming
I make sure I’m ready to give you that something you like
So you think of me next time you’re thinking of someone to give some attention
I love you when I hate myself
You love you when you give me hell
Not hard to tell
I’m not no fool under no spell so please
Don’t let me remember how it bes
Cuz I got you babe you ain’t got me and I own this place and they all know me

Might be a little late you’ll be sorry
Might be a little late you don’t know me
Might be a little late you’ll be sorry
Might be a little late you don’t know me

[chorus]
Track Name: Find You
Music’s loud
What a crowd
They’re not the things that made me come out
That was you
Don’t know how

You like to hide
And that’s not right
You put to shame all the ones who tried
So come with me
We’ll make them cry

[chorus]
I want to find you
I want to find you
I want to find you
I want to find you, you, you

Truth or dare
But beware
I’ll steal a kiss if the game is far
I’d pick you
Anywhere

You got a heart
Got body parts
In the wrong places but it’s a start
I’ll put you together I’ll be glued to you forever

[chorus 3x]
