Shut In 02:49
Don’t go outside. Avoid your whole life. You are finally alone at night but you’re so lonesome. You feel done. You’ve been feeling a little dumb. All used up, worn out and weary. That is how we live and it is the only way I learn. Giving up, getting burned and still living to tell the tale. So what if I’m lonely. So what if I toss and turn all night. There will be no returning. So I’ve got to let these moments pass me by. I stay inside. Bury my nose in a book. Cook up a storm. Settle in and watch the tube. I’m not broken hearted. Just a little tired is all. This isn’t starting over, no, it is not giving up. It is only letting go.

Oh Dear 01:38
I didn’t really think that our love would fade, then why was I so afraid that you were already leaving? It ain’t ever been easy to believe that I'm worth all the extra work. Sometimes I am a jerk. Need to think out loud, can't stop running my mouth, even though I ain’t found the words. So what? I ain’t so bad. I'm trying harder than I ever have.
