Track Name: February 11 (Acoustic)
I went outside and I saw your face today.
It was the first time and I said,
"I think I can do this again, yeah, I think I can do this."

There's snow on the ground and I slipped on the advice that I gave myself.
There's snow on the ground and I slipped on the black ice.

Should I risk giving part of me to you?

I spent two years in a hole it seems,
and I'm finally crawling out.
I promised myself I would never look back,
or at anyone else...

Until I was ready. Until I felt better.
Am I ready? Am I better?

Should I risk giving part of me to you?
Track Name: How About You (Acoustic)
Next to the fireplace, that's not even mine, you weren't even mine.
And when you called me babe for the first time,
you were drunk and your body was lying.

I'm familiar with this routine.
It's the epitome of me.
Falling for someone so emotionally unavailable.

So how about you break my heart again?
I really miss the sensation.
How about you break my heart again?
How about you ask if we can just be friends?

You say you're not creative but you painted every thought that I had.
What am I supposed to do with this do I put it in a frame?
You painted me something too abstract!
I need a list of things you think I lack.

Because I'm familiar with this routine.
It's the epitome of me.
Falling for someone so recklessly.

I can't handle it.

So how about you break my heart again?
I really miss the sensation.
How about you break my heart again?
How about you ask if we can just be friends?

One day she'll leave, and you still won't want me, and I'll let you tell me that you do.
Track Name: Different (Acoustic)
This is different for me and you don't know I'm practicing
for every time you catch my eye,
when you smile, when you sing.

I've been keeping my distance. You're keeping yours too.
But how far is close enough when I've still found you in my room
most nights this week? Nobody even knows we speak, but I know.

This is what I need right now.

And you said, "I don't really think that I see this going anywhere."
I understand how you are feeling.
I'm aware that you only broke up with her three months ago.
And all I'm getting out of you is let's move slow.
But I feel it in my gut and I think you know.

This is what I need right now.

I know it's temporary.
I know it's not forever.
You feel safe for me.
I know it's not forever and when it ends I'll say, "I'm sorry."

But this is what I need right now.

So let me clarify what I said before
I know where this is going and I don't want more
but i'm glad we're on the same page
and I know the feeling's contagious
and we're feeling like teenagers
so I pressed a button for my heart to disengage...

Because this is what I need right now, and you are the only one I want to be with right now.

Because this is different for me and you don't know I'm practicing
for every time you catch my eye,
when you smile, when you sing.

I've been keeping my distance. You're keeping yours too.
But how far is close enough when I've still found you in my room
most nights this week? Nobody even knows we speak, but I know.
