Track Name: back to friends
E B A B
back to friends
relationships end
but we'll begin again
back to friends
we amend
the things we said then

A B
don't worry about the future
we're still alright
we talked it out together
never had a fight

E B A B
back to friends
excitement fades
turns out it wasn't love
back to friends
the words we said
were some sort of

A B
return to the start
we wipe the slate
you never infected my heart
and it's too late

for anything but

E B A B
back to friends
we'll be fine
it's not that different
back to friends
we redefine
our mutual intent

A B
don't look back
i won't regret
we stop keeping track
of how different

E B A B
we are…
oooo

back to friends
it's for the best
it was too hard
back to friends
no protest
we let down guards

back to friends
you and me
just the way it was
back to friends
we agree
it's better as it was

back to friends
no pain to mend
it's much simpler as
friends
Track Name: words
G G6 C G
you slip into my mind
and i am left behind
as my thoughts leave me

it is so unfair
how you are always there
how do you do it?

D7
you're stuck inside my brain

G G6 C G
sometimes i try to lie
but i do not know why
what's the point?

i'm all messed up inside
and i can never hide
all my shortcomings

D7
but you don't seem to mind

C D7 G G6
if i mess up, just know that i'm sorry in advance
C D7 G C
and if i'm wrong, i hope that you can understand

D7
i'm not the best with words

G G6 C G
the places where we wait
are always a mistake
why are we waiting?

i want to see you now
but i do not know how
or what to say

D7
i promised, anyway…

C D7 G G6
if i mess up, just know that i'm sorry in advance
C D7 G C
and if i'm wrong, i hope that you can understand

D7
i'm not the best with words

i'm not the best with words...
Track Name: friends again
C G Fadd9 C

right now
things are looking down
they're a little out of control
to say the least

friendships
end in uncertainty
but i am certain we
will be friends again

by the time you're singing this song with me
i just know that we'll have to be
friends again
friends again
by the time we both realize we've messed up
i just know that we'll both fess up
and be friends again

C Em Fadd9 C
la la la (etc.)

C G Fadd9 C

you tell
me about all these
things that i've been doing
but didn't know

you don't
let me talk it out with you
you just tell me
and then you go

but by the time you're singing this song with me
i just know that we'll have to be
friends again
friends again
by the time we both realize we've messed up
i just know that we'll both fess up
and be friends again

cuz there are sunny days ahead
and i can see them floating down on golden threads
and if we stop looking behind we will get out of this bind
and once we are not blind we'll be friends again

C Em Fadd9 C
la la la (etc.)

C G Fadd9 C

and by the time you're singing this song with me
i just know that we'll have to be
friends again
friends again
by the time we both realize we've messed up
i just know that we'll both fess up
and be friends again
Track Name: one stone
---C F
if you're starting to doubt
going without
G
i'm sorry, i'm sorry
C F
if you're having second thoughts
and you're wondering how
G
to woo me, just don't

Cm G
cuz you you broke my heart once
Bb F
and now my heart has slowly been mended

C F G
so if you're aiming at me
shoot your gun up that tree
maybe you'll catch another bird
but if it's me that you want
just leave the hunt
cuz this is one catch you'll never kill again

Cm Cm G Bb F
one stone and one bird flies free

C F G
so you're looking for me
don't go barking up trees
cuz i have soared away
i am flying south
so baby just shut your mouth
cuz your words will not reach me here

Cm G Bb F G
i hear the north pole
is worth a stroll
if you need to cool down

C F G
but if you're looking for me
well honey
stop

Cm G Bb F
one stone… and this bird flies free

Bbm Ebm Fm

your heart is beating
i can see it
i have never felt quite so betrayed

your love is bleeding
i can hear it
saying "darling, come to bed"

i don't need it
don't want to see it
knew you were gone the moment that you spoke

but i don't hear it
i just hear the
words we said so long ago…

i think we're haunted
i can hear the echoes of the past
thought i could forgive you
but it's funny how long this pain can last

i think we're haunted
and i would give anything to forget
and give you what you've wanted
so i can stop living in regret
