Track Name: Coloring Book
I don't care what you're in,
as long as you're in my arms.
And I don't care what you brought,
as long as you brought it for me.
I don't care what you're in,
as long as you're in my arms, as long as it's in my arms.

I brought over a package
And it was: a gift - a book and a song
But it turned out easier
not seeing you, along
Cuz your front gate now it was open
and your porch light now it was on
Footsteps in the rain
And I know, I know that they aint mine.
And I know....

That's why I brought you
A Coloring Book
So you can practice crossing the line
Track Name: Maybe I Won't Run
I may not get easily frightened,
but still I get scared.
I may not have myself a steady job,
but I still ain't got no time.

No time, I ain't got no time.

Maybe I won't run
Maybe I won't run
Maybe I won't run
Track Name: Bring On Your Memory
When I saw your picture
It made me cry
Cuz It brought back the memories of the day you said good bye

Ive got no memory and no alibi
And you're telling me about some other guy

So bring on your memory
Track Name: In Spite Of Myself
I said I wouldn't do it,
then I done it

In spite I said I wouldn't call
And now I m picking up the phone

In spite of myself you're still in my dreams and you're putting me down
In spite of myself oh no....

In spite of myself
I honestly care
In spite of myself
I'm breathing the air
That you blew me along time ago
But you threw me a long time ago
In spite of myself

Why do your friends they all hate me so?
Is it cuz you do?
Why do your friends they all hate me so?
Is it cuz you do?

In spite of myself....
