Track Name: Never Been Kissed
Baby, I’m working downtown, in its million shades of gray
Where people roll their eyes at love, or else they run away
Like it’s a hand grenade without a pin, or just one more thing to stop believing in
Baby I’m working downtown, but oh, I want to leave
I want to take the car, swing by the bar, and take you home with me
And even though our friends might talk like any day, we’ll turn and walk
I believe that what we’ve got is real

They can call me crazy, another hopeless fool
But they’ve never been kissed, they’ve never been kissed by you
And they’ve never been kissed if they’ve never been kissed by you

Baby, your touch is magic; I haven’t felt the ground in days
You swept me off my old cold feet and off my feet I’ve stayed
Some people walk around prepared to never try or cry or care
But you know when we met, I dared to fall

They can call me crazy, another hopeless fool
But they’ve never been kissed, they’ve never been kissed by you
They can call me crazy, believing love is true
But they’ve never been kissed, they’ve never been kissed by you
And they’ve never been kissed if they’ve never been kissed by you

And everyone that says that this’ll never last is just plain wrong
‘Cause even though we fell so fast our love is strong
And when your lips touch mine, I know I’m right where I belong

Chorus
Track Name: Amsterdam
I’m too weak to hurt without it showing
I’m too sad to feel the rain come down
I’m too young to see my friends start going
I’m too high to find my way around
It’s too bright to be the starlight shining
It’s too neon not to be a sham
It’s too red to be the silver lining
But it’s beautiful in Amsterdam
Yeah it’s beautiful in Amsterdam

Well I may bruise and burn
But I will have my turn
To live and lose and learn who I am
In Amsterdam

She’s too bold to buy that I’m not listening
I’m too cold to hold back from the glass
She’s too cheap to have what I've been missing
But she will distract me if I ask
Yeah she will distract me if I ask

Chorus

I don’t need the 50 states
I just need one warm embrace
No I don’t need the 50 states
I just need a little space

La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
Chorus
Track Name: On&On&On
I messed up again, didn't know when to stop, drop
I did you wrong
Blind until the end, can't seem to tell what's real and what's pretend
Until it's gone
Now I'm bruised and battered, torn and tattered
I traded all that mattered for a song
And there's no going back, it's clear, but maybe, if you ever hear it
The hurt will fade, we'll go our separate ways,
And life goes on & on & on

On & on & on

I know I let you down, never been a good man to hand a heart to
For long
I hope you know I feel it now, can't even close my eyes, or I'll see
All that I've done wrong
Well I tried, I swear I tried,
But in the end I guess I've never been that strong
And I don't have the perfect words, but if it's the meaning that you've heard
Maybe the hurt will fade, we'll go our separate ways,
And life goes on & on & on

And to this day, I regret I was the one to say goodbye
And my heart breaks all over new when I recall you asking why

I messed up again, didn't know when to stop, drop
I did you wrong
Blind until the end, can't seem to tell what's real and what's pretend
Until it's gone
Now I'm bruised and battered, torn and tattered
I traded all that mattered for a song
And there's no going back, it's clear, but maybe, if you ever hear it
The hurt will fade, we'll go our separate ways,
And life goes on & on & on

On & on & on
On & on & on
On & on & on
