Track Name: You Know It, And I Know It, Too
Maybe Im just crying out
For help from you
Maybe Im just running out
Of gas for it too
Maybe Im just figuring our
Why Im feeling blue
Maybe Im just wondering
If you feel it too

Im crying
You know it, and I know it, too
Im crying
you know it, and I know it, too

Wont you tell me a secret
Tell me a lie
Tell me your dark side
And baby come cry on my shoulder
Tell me a secret
Tell me a lie
Tell me your dark side
And come cry on my shoulder
Track Name: You Say You're Leaving
I don't feel like going anywhere
But I just might take you

You say you're leaving
tomorrow you say
you're going, going, gone

I don't feel like going anywhere
I don't feel like going anywhere... anywhere...
Track Name: $1.99
I bought my love at the 7/11
Just a dollar ninety nine
I didnt care she was going nowhere
the point was she was only mine
I guess I coulda stopped to window shop
and look for a better buy
But I think I woulda felt a little more secure
eating and Eskimo Pie

But for a dollar ninety nine
I thought that I couldn't go wrong
Cuz love aint a bargain without a guarantee
I need a love thats open all night long

My love looked to me out of the corner of her eye
she was drinking her slurpee happily
I said to the salesman I'll have me one of those
and he handed that girl to me

A dollar ninety nine was all she cost
and I got a free drink with the deal
now maybe if she would call me up again
the holes in my pocket would heal
