Track Name: Mary (Acoustic)
Hello, we meet again
Seems you've got people talking
Not for reasons that you wanted tonight
Instead of standing tall
You'd rather stand divided
You're doing wrong instead of doing some right

For all the things I love
I won't lie
There's things you do, they make me so sad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad

How did this get so hard?
I thought you'd learned your lesson
I tried to blame it on the folly of youth
But now you're at it again
The same old expectations
You've got some growing up to do

For all the things I love
I won't lie
There's things you do, they make me so sad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad

I'm tired of the arguments
I want a conversation
I want some brand new bright ideas
I want the best intentions
Did you hear the people speak?
Not just those that scream the loudest
I mean the others all just trying to live
I'm all for taking stands
So stand with those who need it
Stop asking more of those with nothing to give

For all the things I love
I won't lie
There's things you do, they make me so sad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad
I wanna love you Mary but you make me so mad
Track Name: Perfect Fit (Acoustic)
If this was too easy
Word's wouldn't have meaning
It's so much harder than most admit
You see I had this space
Just under my ribcage
And I think that you're the perfect fit
Yeah I think that you're the perfect fit

When I figure out
The way these lines should go
Then I'll write them down
Just in case you didn't know
That you are my best friend
That I could tell you anything
So now I'll tell you everything

Yeah I need a new spin
A new phrase for these feelings
Cause those words have been wasted, watered down
So I'll try it simply
Without all the Poetry
My life is better with you around
Yeah my life is better with you around
