Lyrics

"The First Girl"

Well I know I’m not the first girl
To tell you all her secrets through song
It probably won’t be the last time
I complicate what’s already wrong

And I know you’ve got my number
Cause you’ve called me out so many times
And I know you see right through me
I don’t have to tell you what’s on my mind
I know you know

I’m a sucker for a good story
But I always make a mess of my own
And I wish I could rewrite the ending
So nobody ends up all alone

I don’t want to pull you under
Just to keep my own self afloat
And I know you hear the thunder
We should probably stay in the boat
I know you know

I know you know
I know you know

You know I give myself away
I always sing what I can’t say
I never have a reason for my rhyme
You know that I am lying when you ask me and I say I’m doing fine

If I apologize for being honest
Will you forgive me when I’m telling a lie
I’m so bad at awkward conversations
Doesn’t mean I’m not willing to try

And I know your first reaction
Was to pack your bags and head for the door
And deny me the satisfaction
Of seeing you begging for more
I know you know
I know you know
You know
You know
You know

Well I know I’m not the first girl
To tell you all her secrets through song

"X My <3"

Cross my heart and hope to die
I’ll never tell a lie
I’ll stay right by your side
Until the end of time

It’s like you always knew
Just what to say and do
Forever it is true
You and me and me and you

Ahhhhhh

Wish upon a falling star
You know I’ll never go too far
I’ll stay right where you are
And baby you can drive my car

Ahhhhhh

I wrote this song so you would see
Just how much you mean to me
Forever it will be
Me and you and you and me
Me and you and you and me
Me and you and you and me

Me and you you and me
Me and you you and me

"(I Should Probably Write a) Happy Song"

I should probably write a happy song
Everyone would want to sing along
We could move the chairs to dance
And I’d get a second chance
If I could only write a happy song

I should probably give up drinking wine
Cause it makes us argue all the time
And I start to think we’re through
And I don’t know what to do
But I should probably give up drinking wine

Well it’s been years but I can change
Or I’m not afraid of trying
Cause all these tears in my name
Just make me feel like dying

I should probably not stay out so late
Go to bed early and I’d feel great
But I’d start to get so bored
And I’d head right for the door
But I should probably not stay out so late

I should probably learn to play guitar
Join a rock band and become a star
But I know I’d do it wrong
Trying to write a happy song
But I should probably learn to play guitar

Well it’s been years but I can change
Or I’m not afraid of trying
Cause all these tears in my name
Just make me feel like dying
You probably think I’m lying

Badabadabadabababah

Well I finally wrote a happy song
But there was no one there to sing along
Could have asked you to the dance
If I only had the chance
But I was busy writing happy songs

Could have asked you to the dance
We could have kissed like we’re from France
But I was busy writing happy songs

"Waiting"

I wish I could say what’s on my mind
But words just seem to fail me every time
Or I get too scared and walk away
Waiting for another chance to say

Thought I saw you trying to park your car
Watched you from the corner of the bar
Thought I might buy you a glass of wine
But I waited for another chance to shine

Ahhhhhhhhh

Finally got the courage to let you know
Waited there for hours after the show
But you disappeared and now you’re gone
And I’m waiting for the day you hear this song
Yeah I’m waiting for the day you hear this song
I’ll wait patiently, it won’t be long

Ahhhhhhhhhh
