Track Name: Charades
When the sun is down
And our tabs are up
It’s the only time
To be honest enough
It’s a pity to know
Unless our boots do break
Oh I’ll stick to the valley
If you stick to the lake

Charades are what we play
A guessing game, prone to mistake
It’s make believe; it’s not the real thing
Maybe the real thing feels the same

Your face is red
While my heart is blue
It’s an old cliche
Found in a country tune
It’s a shame, it’s shame
That it’s too late
I’ll stick to the valley
If you stick to the lake

Unless I can woo you
And prove I am true to you
Maybe things will reverse with a little bit of time
But I don’t wanna lie to you

When the lights go down
And the show is done
We go back to the start
We go back to square one
We already know that we made a mistake
Oh I’ll stick to the valley
If you stick to the lake
Track Name: Good Mood
I woke up today in a good mood
I can't say that it will last
I'm not even sure if that is true
Things change fast

I woke up today with a bug in my ear
He told be to go back home
The last thing I plan to do this year
Is to do what I am told

How rad!
But how long will this good mood last?

I woke up today in a good mood
I feel like I got some luck
There's no way to know if that is true
Is luck enough?

I woke up today with a thorn in my side
But it wont keep me down
And I could sleep til the end of time
But I'd feel like a clown
Track Name: Come Clean
tell me why
i'm no good for you
don't you lie
or try to hide the truth
i know there's things
you don't wanna say
i can see
it written on your face

come clean with me
it's the only way
to get me off your case

i can see
that you're losing your nerve
stuttering
every other word
you were wrong
but you don't want the blame
you took too long
and now it is too late

come clean with me
it's the only way
to get me off your case

Just speak to me
It's the only way
To get me off your case

At the end of day
I'll lay my head
when my mood is dead
and you're out of my way
