Track Name: Stoned
When I saw you look in her direction
Well I turned around and turned to stone
Cause you went lookin for perfection
And you ended up alone

You can't play with people's hearts
You can't play with people's hearts

When I saw her look right through me
With her target fixed on you
Well your look back at her drew me
To pack my bags for leavin you

You shouldn't of played with my heart
You shouldn't of played with my heart

Now we live in different places
With new loves & different lives
Yet my heart cannot erase us
Most days I sit and wonder why

You can't play with people's hearts
You can't play with people's hearts

You shouldn't of played with my heart
Please stop playin with my heart
Track Name: Let It Go
I have to let it go
Drain this hurt right out my soul
I need to let it flow to a place where troubles go

But when the night awakes my weary head
No one's there to tuck me back to bed

I have to let it go
Oh this pain can't take control
Oh I've let it show
And it clouds my shining soul
So if the night awakens me with fright
I'll take charge, take flight and sleep through those sleepless nights

Alright I've let it go
Now just seeds of love to sew
He's just a memory flowin wild right out this window
Hey if the night awakes my restless heart
I'll feel alright all alone in the dark

This I know you know I know
Oh just let it flow to a place where heartbreak goes
And if the night awakes your weary head
Call me up, I'll come and tuck you back to bed
Track Name: Leapin'
I can't let anybody get me down anymore
I'm tired of wearing this frown
Oh I can't let his words push me around anymore
This time I'll be standin' my ground

I may be leapin' from one love to another
Always leapin' from one love to another
Ohh leapin' from one love to another

Oh I'm so sick of losin' my temper
For things I don't even know why
Oh and all the games you keep playin with me
Is this the way love's supposed to be?

I may be leapin' from one love to another
Always leapin' from one love to another
Ohh leapin' from one love to another

Oh I'm sorry I can't take it anymore
All my bags are waitin' for me at the door
I hope in time you'll be able to see
That this just ain't the way love's supposed to be

I may be leapin' from one love to another
Always leapin' from one love to another
Ohh leapin' from one love to another
Track Name: For You
Oh I wasn't surprised when I finally looked in your eyes
But I just can't describe the way I feel inside
But I'll give it a try

Oh I feel brand new, it must be somethin' to do with you
Oh you are a beautiful person
Oh you are a precious person

Oh I can't just describe this joy I feel inside
Oh I feel hypnotized when you stand by my side

Oh you are a beautiful person
Oh you are a beautiful gift
Track Name: Lonesome Bed
So you didn't cheat, ya right. Well who were you thinkin' bout last night?
In my bed, in our bed, in your bed.
I couldn't sleep all night, thinkin' about who you were thinkin' about last night
In my head, oh my head just ain't right
All of these years, all that I've given to you
From the moment we met I thought you would always be true
Oh I still believe you love me with some of your heart
But you lied and you left me alone lost in this dark

So you didn't cheat ya right, well who were you dreamin bout last night
From my bed Oh my head just ain't right
I couldn't sleep all night thinkin' bout who you were thinkin about all night
Oh my head still ain't right

All of our dreams all of our possible plans
Why did you squish my heart in the palm of your hands
It can never be moulded back in the shape that it was before
So I'm afraid I must leave, goodbye, please close the door

So now you can't sleep tonight thinkin' about who I am sleepin with each night, From your bed, your lonesome bed, tonight
