Track Name: Bad Thing
I was looking through pictures the other day
I came across one I couldn't throw away

Deep in my neck, your face buried low
I looked at the camera, your body as my pillow
You were loving me
and I loved the photo

I'm a bad thing

I've done it before and I'll do it again
Tell me why I grow so tired of men

It all feels good 'til it don't feel right
It flips a switch in the middle of the night
and there it all is
in black and white

I'm a bad thing

I'm a bad thing
but I don't mean to be
Bad things filling up my mind
and take right over me

They tell me that it's over,
I won't make it through the spring
and I can't keep a good thing good;
Makes me feel like I'm a bad thing

I'm a bad thing

Makes me feel like I'm a bad thing
Track Name: Do You?
You were older when I met you
from what I could gauge
and many moons have come and gone
and I'm still not that age

Blue and bright, my eyes
were right there for the taking
Affixed on you, I knew
the mistakes we were making

Do you think about me?
I don't think you do
You don't think about me
like I think about you

I dreamt of you last night
You were breathing my air
You couldn't keep your hands off me
It's like you were there

Your sandpaper chin
was turning mine red
but I can't remember how you touched me
or what you said

Do you think about me?
I don't think you do
You don't think about me
like I think about you

Entertain me, baby
Tell me, boy
You think about me sometimes
and it brings you joy
Don't you miss me?
Or have I misread
the cadence of your sighs
as we lied in bed?

Do you?
I don't think you do
You don't think about me
like I think about you

Do you think about me?
I don't think you do
You don't think about me
like I think about you
Track Name: A Taste of Sweetness
A taste of sweetness
let me get one more
A taste of sweetness
when my heart is sore

A taste of sweetness
and I know it ain't right
'cause a taste of sweetness
keeps me up at night

My eyes get greener
as I grow older
They used to be more blue

And I feel more alone
the more time I,
more time I spend with you

A taste of sweetness
let me get one more
A taste of sweetness
when my heart is sore

A taste of sweetness
and I know it ain't right
'cause a taste of sweetness
keeps me up at night

I need someone to say,
"Why do you do that,
what you always do?
What's the matter with you?

Why do you make your-
self a fool,
and a fool
of others, too?"

Because...

A taste of sweetness
is a sweet release
A taste of sweetness
is my moment of peace

Because there ain't no sweetness
between you and me no more
Mine is not the face that
you used to so adore

And tastes of sweetness
are so few and far between
that a taste of sweetness
got me chasin' that dream

One more time

A taste of sweetness
let me get one more
'cause a taste of sweetness
is an open door
