Track Name: Naturally
You and I are breaking up
After all of the great things we’ve done.
You and I are giving up
After all of the sweet things we felt

And I don’t want to spend these years heartbroken,
I don’t want to feel hurt any more

I know you don’t love me, so why don’t you leave?
Things will get better naturally
I said I know you don’t love me, go get up and leave
Things will get better naturally

It’s past the point that we can do anything
To save what’s been, what’s been missing lately
And how can I ever get through to you
When I’ve given you everything? I’ve done all that I can do

It’s so hard to go home without you
When you’re holding me in your arms

You say you still need me and I may as well stay
Man, you’re going to hurt me either way
I know you don’t love me, I know when you leave
Things will get better naturally,
Naturally,

Baby don’t keep me around just to slow it down
Baby let me get this out, you can do without me now
I don’t understand why you don’t want me back, so you’ve got to let go
Cause I’m going, it’s late, it’s cold, and I know

I know you don’t love me, don’t play pretend
Don’t try to tell me this isn’t the end
I know you don’t love me, I know when you leave
Things will get better naturally

Things will get better naturally
Oh, things will get better naturally
Track Name: Jones
Jones knows everything about me,
I swear her eyes can read my mind
She doesn’t tell, but I can tell she knows me
And she has the key to something that I could use

And I, I don’t know myself all that well
So I worry for myself and
What she thinks of me would mean quite an awful lot to me
Tell me who I am cause right now I’m just confused

Some people think badly about me
I wish she would tell me what she sees
Would you tell me that it’s so,

Would you tell me that it’s so and I am not the one you want
Would you tell me that it’s over and I promise I will stop,
I’ll let go of this now

Been so caught up in criticizing myself,
Measuring against everyone else that now I’m
Immersed in doubt and standing frozen at center stage,
Looking out for someone to validate my hope

Some people think badly about me
But if that will deny me this one thing
Would you tell me that it’s so,

Would you tell me that it’s so and I am not the one you want
Would you tell me that it’s over and I promise I will stop,
I’ll give up on this now

Do I set my sights just a little too high when I look at you?
Is this a mirror on the wall that I’m talking to?
If Jones has said to me,
You’re getting older now, it’s time to forget that dream

I set my sights just a little too high when I look at you
And it’s a mirror the wall that I’m talking to
If Jones has said to me,
You’re getting older now, it’s time to forget that dream,
Forget that dream
Forget that dream
Track Name: People In Love
The people in love line the streets like poetry
and it’s clear to me that they’re
under a drug, without a care, not a worry
Mm, I’m always the one out of place, got that single girl pace,
my constant hurry
The people in love live in a different reality

Mm, where everything is easy, everything is peachy for them,
Rosy red and gold
No one gonna hurt you, no one gonna leave you when you need them
But I’m not one of them

No I don’t fit in with those people in love!
The only kind with the time to enjoy a sunny afternoon,
Showing it off so well without even trying to
Mm, and inviting me out to parties with dates, weekend vacations
and evenings out to sea
The people in love are trying their hardest to get to me

Yeah they say everything is easy, everything is peachy for them,
Rosy red and gold
No one gonna hurt you, no one gonna leave you when you need them
But I don’t believe them

The people in love be showin’ it off
The people in love be showin’ it better than you
If you were in love, I would expect you to take me out on a sunny afternoon
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe you would

The people in love line the streets like poetry
The people in love are trying their hardest to get to me
But I’m not one of them
Track Name: Naturally (Second Version)
You and I are breaking up
After all of the great things we’ve done.
You and I are giving up
After all of the sweet things we felt

And I don’t want to spend these years heartbroken,
I don’t want to feel hurt any more

I know you don’t love me, so why don’t you leave?
Things will get better naturally
I said I know you don’t love me, go get up and leave
Things will get better naturally

It’s past the point that we can do anything
To save what’s been, what’s been missing lately
And how can I ever get through to you
When I’ve given you everything? I’ve done all that I can do

It’s so hard to go home without you
When you’re holding me in your arms

You say you still need me and I may as well stay
Man, you’re going to hurt me either way
I know you don’t love me, I know when you leave
Things will get better naturally,
Naturally,

Baby don’t keep me around just to slow it down
Baby let me get this out, you can do without me now
I don’t understand why you don’t want me back, so you’ve got to let go
Cause I’m going, it’s late, it’s cold, and I know

I know you don’t love me, don’t play pretend
Don’t try to tell me this isn’t the end
I know you don’t love me, I know when you leave
Things will get better naturally

Things will get better naturally
Oh, things will get better naturally
