Track Name: The Man is Optional
Met this man like all the rest
Those first few weeks--well, they're the best
He's been on his best behaviour
acting like he's some kind of saviour
Head up high, eyes are roaming
Does he think of me only when he's phoning?
Tandem love's got training wheels
But from where I sit, here's how it feels:

It's just me and my man
And the man is optional

At the show on my own
Gotta save me a seat for my phone
On my bike for a ride
He gets jealous when I play outside
He's at home all alone
Texting, typing, lying--I don't know!
Tandem love's got training wheels
But from where I sit, here's how it feels:

It's just me and my man
And the man is optional

(rap)
He's at rest / I'm in motion / Bad potion / Start a commotion

Love can be good for yourself
But it ain't good if you're foolin' yourself

It's just me and my man
And the man is optional

Now it's not like it's the same in every situation
And it's not like I'm against any male/female relations
But I'm not looking for that man who loves me for just one night
And until I find that man who knows how to treat me right

It's just me and my man
And the man is optional
And the man is...
not for me.
Track Name: Massive Stride
Looking back when she was just a young and lonely child:
Impressionable, had curiosity for miles
Someone told her that the dream she had would never be
And now she's growing up, turning into me

Tried to tell her because of the colour of her hair
She would never get to Broadway if she went there
Tried to shield her underneath the veil of love
But sometimes you gotta learn even when it's tough

Keep your stride
Keep that fire alive
Keep your stride
Wipe that mud from your eyes
Keep your stride
Forget your pride
Keep your stride
Keep your stride massive

The way she says the letter S may seem a bit strange to you
Or the features of her face don't match what you're used to
Maybe you've been blinded by what you see on TV
on the quest for pleasure instead of beauty

People try to fit you in their cookie cutter squares
Then they get confused when you refuse to live in there
If you come to know the person you've been called to be
Show them with your love
It'll set you free
Track Name: Beauty is a Wound
O Lord
It's gonna be another one of those nights again
when I'm wide awake and blue

And I don't know if You can help me
But if You can, tell me what to do.

Beauty is a wound
And she cut him too soon.
I'm spending my time wasting love on you.
She pretends to care, but she's not really there.
Her heart is in the other room.

She may be crying
And he may be dying to ask her what he should do
I'm sure you're sleeping
But I'm still awake and weeping all my love out for you

Bet she didn't know a heartache could hurt so bad
Bet she didn't know her smile could make him so sad
She's oblivious and he's meticulously mad
Who said love's supposed to make you glad?

Are you there?
Do you care?
Are you really there?
Do you care?
Track Name: He Loves Me
I don't know why he talks to me when all I do is lie and cry and sigh and cheat
Maybe all I need is to cry on his shoulder
And baby, I know there are times when I couldn't be colder, but

He loves me.
He loves me.
He loves me even when I fall.
He loves me even though my heart is small.

Sometimes at night I call him on my special telephone
Usually it's when all the other boys are not at home.
He listens to every word; every excuse he's sure to have heard
And this is not the way that I prefer, but

He loves me.
He loves me.
He loves me even when I fall.
He loves me even though my heart is small.

He gets quiet and I sense his hurt
I get cold and he gives me his shirt
But time's getting tough
Love's getting rough
Flame's getting smothered
And baby, I know I just couldn't love another

The way he loves me
He loves me
I said, the way he loves me even when I fall
He loves me even though my heart is small.

Even though my heart is small I wanna give it all to him.
