Verse: I count 7 days since last Saturday I’ve been keepin’ them like they’re my sobriety chips I count 7 days wish I could skip away it’d be better than waitin’, wonderin’, how I lost you Pre-Chorus you’re so bright I’m so blue you’re so tough and i’m still breakin’ for you Chorus my heart won’t quit though the Man has played His cards my head loses wit when I start to care at all I’m a weak old girl losing myself to you but I’ll still try my luck at the next round of fools Verse: I count 7 days Like they’ll just drift away If I can’t care for them Then what’s the point of holding onto you Pre-Chorus you’re so bright I’m so blue you’re so tough and i’m still breakin’ for you Chorus my heart won’t quit though the Man has played His cards my head loses wit when I start to care at all I’m a weak old girl losing myself to you but I’ll still try my luck at the next round of fools

Catch You 03:09
Verse You say you’re thinking of moving, well I’m thinking of moving too you’re an inch short of a fair warning and I know the market’s never been this good there’s a clear break for healing, it’s a blue sky for a ceiling if I could catch the rays, teach the sun how to behave Chorus maybe I could catch you Verse You say you’re thinking of quitting , well I’m thinking of quitting too It’s some hard times for a girl waiting and I’m growing older lyin’ next to you I’m a free bird in motion, you’re a prayin’ man with no devotion If I could rewrite the word, show your God I know my worth Chorus maybe I could catch you Bridge Think of me sweetly, I’m countin’ my dreams about you I’ll write one more song though they all turn out so wrong and about you ‘cuz I reaped all the benefits of loving mastered my defence to hide all my blushing caught up in the lies we always kept on telling, like anything was ever gonna happen I only know your body as a weapon taking no time to try and rip me open how to know? there’s no hope that I could catch you

Verse: Don’t be a stranger When you take me to bed Baby I’m here so we must’ve Known each other outside this den don’t play the man Who knows better We both know you’re just made of sand Fall through my hands Verse: Don’t be a victim When I ask for your help Baby I’ll need you and need to Know if you’re gonna be around I’m only a human you’re using I hope it’s ok if I tell All about my doubts Bridge: Down I go No man to hold me Try to maintain my pride Among your lies Sold on the art no mind for the heart Meet me round by your tools I’ll fit into the mould of something

Verse Do you think about those things we said we’d do? Back when my skirts were long, and stares felt shorter too I’ve grown an inch since then, or maybe five at short I hope you’re singing still, Ma always loved your sort Did you move out fast? Just like you spoke about I’m sure your hair grew long, but your jeans are still cut short I see your sister ‘round, she’s got a laugh like yours I hope you sing about, our summer, after course Chorus Well I’m a long long ways, away from home And I’m not sure if I still belong I’ll try to look back to what we both would say But I think I might just go back To Kempenfelt Bay Verse I’ve got a job downtown, not much to brag about. I spend my nights alone, oh just tryin’ to catch my thoughts I saw a man like you, stood tall with shoulders taut I like to wonder ‘bout, the girl whose heart you caught Chorus Well I’m a long long ways, away from home And I’m not sure if I still belong I’ll try to look back to what we both would say But I think I might just go back To Kempenfelt Bay Bridge the moon is dimming, and I’m tired of swimming Through my pools of linen, regrets of careful women I’ll just close my window, so the night seems thinner Through my room of feverless sighs Chorus Well I’m a long long ways, away from home And I’m not sure if I still belong I’ll try to look back to what we both would say But I think I might just go back To Kempenfelt Bay
