Track Name: Say What You Want
Patience is a virtue
Lying always hurts you
Don’t you know by now you are a fool?

You don’t even know me
Don’t pretend you know me
You barely even know my name

You can send the dirty looks my way
But you know I’ll keep a damn straight face

Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want about me

Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
But you’ll never, never, never
Never hurt me

Even though you try
To bring me so far down
You’ll be surprised to see
That my feet are on the ground

And your negativity
Won’t get inside of me
Perhaps someday you’ll see
It was never worth it in the first place

(Chorus)

You scared me once before
But you won’t get into my head
You scared me once before,
But you won’t get into my head
Oh no, no

(Chorus)
Track Name: Self-Checkout Line
I get pissed off at those self-checkout lines
How they’re so confusing and they take up time
I get pissed off seeing three year olds on cell phones
How their parents don’t seem to notice that their kid is in this zone

A zone where no human interaction even occurs
And everyone’s a faceless, lifeless little blur
And it pains me to see it, yes it does
Pains me to see it and I don’t know how to beat it
And I just want to figure it out

I get pissed off at myself on Facebook
Think about why instead I’m not reading a book
I get pissed off when I hear those comments
Like what is she wearing and what is she doing with a guy like him

I don’t expect you to like everyone you meet at any given time
But, jealousy comes in all shapes and sizes
Why you gotta bring people down and criticize them
All I gotta say is that I’m sick and tired
Of hearing all the bullsh from all those damn liars

All I really want is for people to be real
I can surely tell when you’re trying to conceal
All the bitterness and the emptiness and the insecurity

I can tell that you’re insecure
‘Cause all you want is to just be sure
The attention is on you

Oh oh you know
You don’t gotta impress no one
Oh oh you know
You just gotta be your own

Oh oh you know
You don’t gotta impress no one
Even if that means
You are misunderstood

Misunderstood like a movie, except this is truly
Your life you’re living and you can’t waste time
I’m sure you wanna be more than just a mime
‘Cause the more you follow, the more you lose sight
Of who you are and what is right
We gotta fight the system and truly find
Who we are before the world goes blind

I can tell that you’re insecure
‘Cause all you want is to just be sure
I can tell that you’re insecure
‘Cause all you want is to just be sure
The attention is on you
Track Name: See All Those Girls
See all those girls
Yeah, yeah

Tryna be something they’re not
Tryna be in the spotlight like they’re so tight
With those boys

With their low cut shirts
And I know it don’t hurt to wear those

But would you take it easy sometimes?
You’re at it night after night
And it ain’t always bout gettin it in
No it ain’t always bout gettin it in

See all those girls
Yeah, yeah

Under the make-up that you cake on
I’m sure you’ve got a mind of your own
Under the trash talkin', lip smackin'
Push-up rack, originality lackin'
You got it all

Under the bed-hoppin', fake sobbin'
Bottle poppin', sweet talkin'
You got it all

See all those girls
Yeah, yeah

Wear what you wear ‘cause you wanna wear it
Don’t wear what they wear ‘cause or else they’ll stare you down
I don’t see no crown, and they won’t get me down, oh no

They ain’t got nothing on me
They’ve been the same way since age 13
My middle school days are over

See all those girls
Yeah, yeah
See all those girls
Yeah, yeah
Track Name: Boy, You Got Me
The way you do
Those things you do
Is what I always wanted from you

But your heart says I don’t know
But I know you know, yes I know you know
That there’s such thing as chemistry
And there it lies with you and me, so

Chorus:
What am I to do when I might be in love with you?
What am I to say when every single day I just wanna wake up next to you?
Boy, you got me so confused

Here we are, just us two
Ain’t that something?
And boy, I want you, oh yes I do

Chorus
Track Name: I Still Stand Tall
I need a man, not a boy
Not much commitment, but I’m no one’s toy
And I just wanna say that I
Don’t even know why you seemed to try in the first place
I just wanna say that I
Don’t even know why you seemed to try

Chorus:
‘Cause you up and gone left me in the dust
And I made myself believe it must have been your mind
And it’s a shame that it never came to anything at all
But I don’t regret it, I still stand tall

You know I said what I meant
And I was honest, but my time was spent
On thinking of you and me
And how things used to be
I was thinking of you and me
And how things used to be

Chorus

I don’t expect no return anymore
And I can’t force you to be concerned
With my life and what I’m doing now
And I just wanted you to know
That you didn’t ever have to go

Chorus
Track Name: What Did I Do To Lose You?
Since you left
I was afraid that I would not be loved
One day after another, I was just some other girl to you

Chorus:
I’ve found that I should not try
To win somebody’s heart
Who won’t give me the time of day
It’s just a waste of time

Please don’t go, I said to myself
Why’d you do those things you did
If you never meant anything you said?
You hurt me so, don’t you know, don’t you know?
I bet you knew but you didn’t do nothin'

Chorus

What did I do to lose you?

Chorus

What did I do to lose you?
