Track Name: Adieu
I write this song to let you know I'm doing well
I hope you're okay too for I put through hell
It wasn't easy letting go after all these years
But I'm done with drying all my tears

Today I'm a better man than I have ever been
For that I thank you, it was you who made me change
And I forgive you for the things you know weren't right
And I forgive myself for hating my own life
Cause love is kind
But I was blind
And now I see a brighter day

I'd like to think our love was a trial
Our hands were the errors and it took us quite a while
But I've moved on
And so have you
Goodbyes are hard but now adieu

Cause love is kind
But I was blind
And now I see a brighter day
Track Name: Bed-Ridden
I see you from across the floor
And I wonder
What's on that beautiful mind?
Is something pacing back and forth?
Are you exploring your own world?
And if I joined, would you mind?
I can't explain my delight
When your eyes drift by
What's on that beautiful mind?

I want to read the books you do
I want to see what you feel
When you listen to your favorite song
I want to know what you hate to do
I want to hear your troubles
And have our hearts beat along

But I'm the type of guy to just stay wondering
Your beautiful mind will stay on mine
Our discoveries will stay hidden
Cause I keep my heart bed-ridden

You'll be on my list of impossible possibilities
Always a maybe that'll never be
I love the pain when I don't get what I find
So I'll loathe happily thinking your beautiful mind

I want to read the books you do
But I won't
I want to see what you feel
But I never will
I want to know what you hate to do
But I won't
I want to hear your troubles
And have our hearts beat along
But they never wil
Track Name: Coffeehouse Girl
I love the smell of this coffeehouse
It warms me up when I'm feeling down
A cup of love for here, don't you know
There's no place that I'd rather go
I don't believe in love at first sight
A faithless thought that you made me fight
But now my heart can follow your grace
'Cause only God could make your lovely face
Your lovely face

I wish I could shed my shyness
Just the way you show me kindness
So easily my dear I want you so near
How do I show my heart's intentions
To give you love with no expectation
I know I'm not the smoothest around
But my love for you's bigger than this town
Bigger than this town

I swear I'll shed my shyness
And give my heart the way you give kindness
So please don't stay in my dreams
You lift me up more than caffeine
I love the smell of this coffeehouse
You warm me up when I'm feeling down
Track Name: I Don't
I hate the way you sneak into my mind
My day is perfect and so it my night
Then my dreams turn on and there you are
What gives you the right to stay in my heart

I love you, I don't
I hate you, I don't
I miss you, I don't

Why am I stronger now but more fragile
I broke half my heart but now it's more tangible
I smile more but cry endlessly
I'm more sociable but I've been so lonely

I'm better, I'm not
I'm torn up, I'm not
I'm shaking, I'm not

I think it might've always been you
But I know that it's just not true
My heart hates my mind for knowing what's right
While I'm stuck in the middle of this God-forsaken fight

It's over, I know
Stop thinking, I know
They're just dreams, I know

But that's the issue, I don't know
And that scares me
I'm so scared, I'm not
