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

Maps

I miss the taste of a sweeter life
I miss the conversation
I'm searching for a song tonight
I'm changing all of the stations

I like to think that we had it all
We drew a map to a better place
But on that road I took a fall
Oh baby why did you run away?

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest night

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
When all the roads you took came back to me

So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

I hear your voice in my sleep at night
Hard to resist temptation
'Cause something strange has come over me
And now I can't get over you
No, I just can't get over you

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest night

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
When all the roads you took came back to me

So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh

Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest time
Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest night

Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest time
Oh, I was there for you
Oh, in your darkest night

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
When all the roads you took came back to me

So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

It Was Always You

Woke up sweating from a dream
With a different kind of feeling
All day long my heart was beating
Searching for the meaning

Hazel eyes,
I was so color blind
We were just wasting time
uh uh yeah
For my whole life
We never crossed the line
Only friends in my mind
But now I realize,

It was always you
Can't believe I could not see it all this time, all this time
It was always you
Now I know why my heart wasn't satisfied, satisfied
It was always you, you
No more guessing who
Looking back now I know it was always you, always you

All my hidden desires
Finally came alive
No, I never told lies
To you so why would I
Start tonight

Hazel eyes,
I was so color blind
We were just wasting time
uh uh yeah
For my whole life
We never crossed the line
Only friends in my mind
But now I realize,

It was always you
Can't believe I could not see it all this time, all this time
It was always you
Now I know why my heart wasn't satisfied, satisfied
It was always you, you
No more guessing who
Looking back now I know it was always you, always you

(Aah, yeah, you, you, you, always you, you, you)
(Aah, yeah, you, you, you, always you, you, you)

Woke up sweating from a dream
With a different kind of feeling

It was always you
Even if I could not see it all this time, all this time
It was always you
Now I know why my heart wasn't satisfied, satisfied
It was always you, you
No more guessing who
Looking back now I know it was always you, always you

It was always you

Unkiss Me

If you respect me
Don't protect me
You can tell me,
I can handle it
Stop pretending 'cause we're going down

If you let go
Then just let go
It's disrespectful
How you've handled this
Never ending, kinda run around

I lied to my heart 'cause I thought you felt it
You can't light a fire, if the candle's melted
No, you don't have to love me if you don't wanna
Don't act like I mean nothing
But if you're gonna, well, then you better

Unkiss me,
Untouch me
Untake this heart
And I'm missing
Just one thing
A brand new start

Can't erase this,
Can't delete this,
I don't need this,
I can't handle it
I just feel it that you're over us

If I wait here,
If I see you
It won't matter,
What's the point of this?
We're in pieces because you're over us

I lied to my heart 'cause I thought you felt it
You can't light a fire, if the candle's melted
No, you don't have to love me if you don't wanna
Don't act like I mean nothing
But if you're gonna, well, then you better

Unkiss me,
Untouch me
Untake this heart
And I'm missing
Just one thing
A brand new start
So unkiss me
So unkiss me

So, baby, let go
Gotta let go
It's disrespectful
I can handle this
Never ending, kinda run around

Unkiss me,
Untouch me
Untake this heart
And I'm missing
Just one thing
A brand new start
So unkiss me
So unkiss me
Unkiss me

Sugar

I'm hurting, baby, I'm broken down
I need your loving, loving
I need it now
When I'm without you
I'm something weak
You got me begging, begging

Don't give all that shy sh-t
No make up on

Leaving California

You got in so late
It's Sunday morning
Said that you were leaving
Letting go of us
Where did we go wrong? Oh
And now you say you're leaving California
Gotta head back East and want to leave tonight
Pack your things and go
But if you run away,
I won't be alright

Even if the sun crashes into us
I won't let go, I won't let go
And I can be your light
Stay with me tonight
I won't let go, I won't let go
Yeah

Pick up all the pieces
Fight to hold on
Put them back together, do it all for love
Never let it go
Oh, yeah
Cause I don't need a reason
Just to hold ya
One more of your teasing
Lock you in the eyes
Baby please don't go
Oh, yeah
But if you run away,
I won't be alright

Even if the sun crashes into us
I won't let go, I won't let go
And I can be your light
Stay with me tonight
I won't let go, I won't let go
Yeah

Now you say you're leaving California

And all I want is to give it to you
And don't give up on the moment tonight
You'll regret it the rest of your life

Coming Back For You

Looking at the same sky that we used to lay under
Are you thinking about the love that I took from us

When you close your eyes
Do you see me, love?
Am I keeping you awake?
Would you scare to fly?
Are you giving up?
When you know, you know, you know

You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
Don't you worry, girl
You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
I'll be back for you
So you better wait up
Keeping the bed warm for me
All night puttin' your whisper on me
Giving that love and emotion that I know
Doesn't really matter what you do
I'll be back for you
Coming back for you

I know there are millions of miles in between our hearts
But I will come running for you I don't care how far

When you close your eyes
Do you see me, love?
Am I keeping you awake?
Would you scare to fly?
Are you giving up?
When you know, you know, you know

You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
Don't you worry, girl
You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
I'll be back for you
So you better wait up
Keeping the bed warm for me
All night puttin' your whisper on me
Giving that love and emotion that I know
Doesn't really matter what you do
I'll be back for you
Coming back for you

You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
Don't you worry, girl
I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry now, now
Don't you worry now

You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
Don't you worry, girl
You know that I'm coming back for you
Don't you worry, girl
I'll be back for you
So you better wait up
Keeping the bed warm for me
All night puttin' your whisper on me
Giving that love and emotion that I know
Doesn't really matter what you do
I'll be back for you
Coming back for you

Feelings

You and me and all that wine
Loosen my tie, lie down, let's fly
Every guy that passes by
(Look at her, look at her oh)
And you say that it's not right
But where does he think you are tonight?
Does he know your nasty side?
(Look at her, look at her oh)

If you want me take me home and let me use you
I know he doesn't satisfy you like I do
And does he know that there's nobody quite like you
So let me tell you all the things he never told you
(yeah!)

I got these feelings for you
And I can't help myself no more
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more
I, I, I

You and me let's go all night
Going so high, we f*ck the sky
Come with me now, f*ck that guy
(Look at her, look at her oh)
Now you flash that sexy smile
And tell me I've got to wait a while
And it makes me lose my mind
(Look at her, look at her oh)

If you want me take me home and let me use you
I know he doesn't satisfy you like I do
And does he know that there's nobody quite like you
So let me tell you all the things he never told you
(Yeah!)

I got these feelings for you
And I can't help myself no more
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more
I, I, I
(Can't help myself no more)
I, I, I

No, I can't wait much longer
It needs to happen now
'Cause I can't spend the rest of my life chasing you around
I want to get much closer
You need to tell me how
Baby, how, how
Babe, 'cause I

I got these feelings for you
And I can't help myself no more
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more

I got these feelings for you
(Got these feelings for ya, got these feelings for ya)
Can't fight these feelings for you
No, I can't help myself no more
I, I, I

Shoot Love

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

You gotta let it go
'Cause we're losing grip now
It's about to go down
Would you let me talk to you?
You gotta let me know
'Cause I'm on the edge now
Of a nervous breakdown
'Cause I can't get through to you

I got my head just spinning
Got my head up spinning
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot love
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot
When you get that feeling
When you get that feeling
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot love
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot

You never let me go
Got me chained to your touch
Like a slave for you love
I'm ashamed to say it's true
Afraid to let you go
'Cause without you I'm lost
And not matter the cost
I'm standing next to you

I got my head just spinning
Got my head up spinning
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot love
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot
When you get that feeling
When you get that feeling
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot love
Don't shoot love baby
Don't shoot

My back's against the wall tonight
So go ahead pull the trigger
Shoot the lights off
So go ahead pull the trigger
Shoot the lights off
I see the fear that's in your eyes
So go ahead pull the trigger
Shoot the lights off
Go ahead pull the trigger
Shoot

Sex And Candy

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Hanging 'round downtown by myself
And I had so much time to sit and think about myself
And then there she was like double cherry pie
Yeah, there she was like disco Super Fly

I smell sex and candy here
Who's that loungin' in my chair?
Who's that castin' devious stares in my direction?
Mama, this surely is a dream, yeah
See, mama, this surely is a dream, yeah

Hangin' 'round downtown by myself
And I've had too much caffeine and I was thinkin' 'bout myself
And then there she was in a platform double suede
There she was like disco lemonade

I smell sex and candy here
Who's that loungin' in my chair?
Who's that castin' devious stares in my direction?
Mama, this surely is a dream, yeah
See, mama, this surely is a dream, yeah

I smell sex and candy here
Who's that loungin' in my chair?
Who's that castin' devious stares in my direction?
Mama, this surely is a dream, yeah
See, mama, this surely is a dream, dig it
This surely is a dream, yeah
See, mama, this must be my dream

Lost Stars

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Please don't see
Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me
Reaching out for someone I can't see

Take my hand, let's see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I'll be damned, Cupid's demanding back his arrow
So let's get drunk on our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Who are we?
Just a speck of dust within the galaxy?
Woe is me
If we're not careful turns into reality

But don't you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page, maybe we'll find a brand new ending
Where we're dancing in our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
We're searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

and I thought I saw you out there crying
and I thought I heard you call my name
and I thought I heard you out there crying
But just the same

And God, give us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
Are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
