Track Name: Candy-Coated Dream
I woke up with this song stuck in my head
But it had not been written, so I stayed in bed
Sang this melody and strummed along
Took what's in my heart and put it into a song
It's simple and sweet, like the love she gives to me
I want to keep that girl right next to me
I told myself this time, don't jump the gun
It takes a lot of time to truly know someone
And I'm better off alone, that's the way it seems
If love is just a product, it's cruel chemistry
But she's awfully sweet, and that's all I'll ever need
I want to keep that girl right next to me
When we're apart, I'm feeling oh so sick
But when she lays her head on my chest
My heart starts racing, I'm a lunatic
When we're together, I am at my absolute best
She's awfully sweet, and makes me feel complete
I want to keep that girl right next to me
Yeah she's awfully sweet, she's my candy-coated dream
I want to keep that girl right next to me
Track Name: Trust Yourself
At some point in your life you will feel
That your hand is forced
Like fear takes a grip, never letting you slip
As it leads you to paths of remorse
I watched you walk down that road
Out of reach from my touch
The concept of falling in love
At the time would prove to be too much
You followed the signs that were pointing to
That marker that said "The Good Life"
But don't you ever say
I let you go without a fight
You made a chaser out of me
But I can't keep up this running around
My legs are so weak
You probably shouldn't tell me, but I've been dying to know
Why you can't trust yourself with me alone
At some point in your life you will feel
The candle is well worth the game
But you knew my fire would make you combust
So you found a much tamer flame
"Maybe he's not what I need
But he might be enough,"
You said pseudo-confidently
You were lying to yourself
But now you're alone in your house
In that foreign state
My memory is haunting you as
My record plays
I know there's a chance our romance might not last
But even one lovely evening might not be so bad
So honey you probably shouldn't tell me, but I've been dying to know
Why can't you trust yourself with me alone?
