Track Name: Alibi
I heard all about it but I did not hear from you
Bad news travels faster doesn’t matter if it’s true
If you need an alibi I’d give it a shot
You’ve been there before for me for you I have not

Something came between us somewhere a line was drawn
I can’t put my finger on the moment it was gone
I was in a hurry then to get on with my life
You said not to worry just sit back and do your time

I asked how you’d found me and you said that it was fate
You wanted to know what really happened on that date
I confessed I thought that you had gone over the line
Then I heard you laughing and your laugh was just like mine
Track Name: Extreme
You took a look into my past
For some sign that things just might not last
Your sister said that we were through
But I want to hear from you
You went digging for some dirt
And what you found was bound to hurt

I felt that we were really going strong
But that feeling didn’t last so long
And your best friend said that you tend
To get bent out of shape so easily
I could explain it all to you
If you’d just give me a chance to

So you’re loaded up and ready to go
I’m no longer someone you want to get to know
If you’ve got questions
Then I’ve got answers
Things are rarely really what they seem
Don’t be extreme
