02. Antidote (What Do You Want)

Music and lyrics by D.Johnston & D.Liang

Verse 1

Baby I’m fed up tonight
I’m gonna tell you about it
I’ve been thinkin’ for some time
I wanna figure it out and
Baby I don’t think we’re right
And now I’m starting to doubt if
You really want to be with me
Gotta make it real clear to keep your lady

Verse 2

Seems like every day we fight
But we’re stayin’ together
You always seem to change your mind
Givin’ me pain and pleasure
Do you want me at your side?
‘Cause I could find another
Man who could treat me better
Never leave and make it last forever

Chorus

Hey, we couldn’t make it if we tried
Hey, we shouldn’t fake this…it isn’t right
Hey, I think you’ve had enough of me
It’s not so bad. Try to be happy for us
What do you want from me?

Verse 3

Baby I don’t ask for much
I’m not that demanding
At times with you it’s tough
Am I misunderstanding?
I thought we were in love
Never thought of ending
Something that I thought would last
But we can’t even if we change it fast

Chorus

Bridge

I could spend all my
Life just tryin’ to find
A “one size fits all” antidote
But I’d be flying blind
Won’t spend all my life
‘Cause I’m exhausted

Hey, what do you want from me?
Hey, what do you want from me?
Hey, I think you’ve had enough of me
It’s not so bad. Try to be happy for us
What do you want from me?

03. You're Too Pretty

Music and lyrics by D.Johnston & D.Liang

Verse 1

All it really took was a look from across the room
I caught your eye and I knew I was doomed
To fall deeply for the idea of you and me
Together could I ever make this dream come true?

Imagine my sweet surprise
When you said you felt likewise

Chorus

And I thought “You’re so pretty”
But too pretty for someone like me
I just want this feeling to go away
You’re too pretty for a girl like me

Verse 2

If they ask I would sing all your praises
Tell them all about your charms and grace
And how you’d always say that you’d take me so many places
Will they only see a perfect face?

Now I’m spending all my time on your outside
But with every pretty face there’s only downside

Chorus

Bridge

I suppose that I was hoping to prove them all wrong
That I can get past your surface
To the innermost secrets
But I keep getting stuck because
You’re so pretty

Chorus

Outro

All it really took was a look from across the room I caught your eye
To fall deeply for the idea of you and me together

04. Sugar Daddy

Music and lyrics by D.Johnston & D.Liang

Verse 1

You said “I
Will give you everything you ask for
There isn’t anything I want more
Than you for mine”

I said “No,
It’s not a diamond ring I ask for
It’s every other thing I want more
On your dime”

Chorus 1

Be my sugar daddy
No strings attached
If you’ll be my sugar daddy
You know… I’m okay with that

Verse 2

I
I think our little conversation
What could have been a complication
Went rather well

See I
Don’t want you to misunderstand me
We can’t take this too seriously
And that’s just fine

Chorus 2

Be my sugar daddy
We’re just having fun
You can be my sugar daddy
You know, until the next one

Bridge

Some are sad, think I’m naïve
‘Cause I wear my heart on my sleeve
But I know it’s not love just fun
It’ll be over before it’s begun so

Chorus

05. Strangers on a Train

Music and lyrics by D. Johnston & D. Liang

Bridge

If I can’t get you off of my one track mind
Then I’ll just throw this switch and make you mine

Verse

Sped up
Sped up (slow down)
Sped up
Sped up (slow down)

Chorus

Do you not realize?
We’re on the same one either way
I sit and watch you there
‘Cause we are strangers on a train

Verse

06. Trite

Music and lyrics by D. Johnston & D. Liang

Verse 1

Here we are
Eleven at night
Time to make decisions

Are we in?
Or out for the night?
Why haven’t you decided?

Pre-Chorus

I’m waiting
Patiently
Wishful thinking? (made a wish)
Will I ever learn? (you could feel what I feel now)

Chorus

You say you love me but it feels so trite
You say a lot of things that sound so ordinary
Every word leaves me uninspired
I liked you better when our love was unpredictable

Verse

Used to be
You did it all
I was never so delighted

To my dismay,
It became so routine
Once you won me over

Pre-Chorus

I’m still waiting
Impatiently
Same old, same old (same old same old)
“C’est ma vie” I guess (my life, this is my life)

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

07. Come Undone

Music and lyrics by D. Johnston & D. Liang

Verse 1

Your eyes are closed and I don’t wanna wake you
I won’t whisper in your ear
All the places that I wanna take you
When you’re finally here

These days alone have made me stronger
All these hours apart more brave… but
The truth is I am my own weakness
I am here for you to save

Chorus

I can’t sleep without you
I’m coming undone
When I sleep without you
I’m tossing and turning all night

Verse 2

With my eyes open I lie thinking
As the dawn outside draws nigh
I know it’s wrong but I can’t help it
Wishing time would pass me by
So you’d be at my side

Chorus

Bridge

It’s the nightmares
I’m afraid of
Please help me know

That no matter
How far I am
Your soul won’t let mine go

Chorus
