Track Name: Love is a Dirty Word
“Love is a dirty word,” she breathes
while painting the air with a cigarette. And he just smiles.
“Go home or stay here. It’s up to you.“
So he undoes his shirt and he kicks off his shoes.

A lie of omission is still a lie.
But it's one he can live with for one more night.
Fire and brimstone.
Heat in the night.
Feels so right.

Oh, but what would you do if that choice was yours?
And Love, whoa love, is a dirty word.

Love is a game for fools.
You can tie your heart on a leash if you want.
I might take it for a walk, maybe two.
But don’t you ask me to pick up yo’ shit.

The truth is locked up tight.
I hope we can keep it for one more night.
Pride is the fuel.
And lust is the spark.
And it burns in the dark.

It's all fun and games 'til someone gets hurt.
The truth is love is a dirty word.

I worked so hard to please you.
And I tried so hard to leave you.
Baby I still need you and I feel the pain.

Oh, you’re too crazy.
My mind is just so hazy.
And I cry like a baby when I hear your name.

Oh love love love. Oh love love love. Oh love love love. Oh love. Oh love love love. Oh love love love. Oh love love love. Oh love is a dirty word.
Track Name: The Set
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Lane Splitter
Hey, lane splitter, where did you get those moves?
Everybody seems to know you’ve got the fastest ride in school.
All the guys go crazy for your long blonde hair.
When you blow by the girls they all stop and stare.

Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.
Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.

Lane splitter, split it again.
Lane splitter, split it again.
Lane splitter, split it again.
Lane splitter, split it again.

Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.
Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.

Hey, lane splitter, what's it take to get a ride? (What’s it take to get a ride? What’s it take to get a ride?)
‘Cause there ain't much to do here on a Saturday night.
Your daddy said “be home by quarter past ten.”
Well, I guess your daddy better think again.

Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.
Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.

Lane splitter, split it again.
Lane splitter, split it again.
Lane splitter, split it again.
Lane splitter, split it again.

Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.
Hey, lane splitter, go ahead and split it again.
Split it again.
Split it again.
Track Name: Side by Side
I know I’m always running out or running late.
And sometimes I forget to call when I miss a date.
But I’m not, no I’m not, I swear on my life that I’m trying not
to let you down. Oh no, not today.

Drinking doesn’t take away the pain the way that you do.
Cryin’s all I want to do when I can’t be with you.
You’re the one, you’re the one, oh baby you’re the only one for me
and I want to see this through.

Could you spare your forever?
Tie your heart to mine.
We will meet life together.
Hand in hand. Side by side.

If time is money I think it’s better spent
paying off the mortgage or paying off the rent.
‘Cause in love, yes in love, every time that I’ve been in love I leave
when the bills come due.

This world has many joys that bring me happiness
and a man to hug and kiss me was never on my list.
But you’re right, yes you’re right, oh I know that you must be right for me
'cause I feel so rich with you.

Could you spare your forever?
Tie your heart to mine.
We will meet life together.
Hand in hand. Side by side.
