Track Name: Not Taking Credit
Not Taking Credit

You say you don't bring up your little acts of charity
The modest role you play has got to be a parody
You do so much when no one's looking like you do not care
But you are sure to leave your fingerprints everywhere

And you want credit for not taking credit
You want credit for not taking credit for the things you do
Those caring things you do

You like to keep it to yourself is what you always claim
But then you always seem to accidentally sign your name
Your favorite saying is give credit where credit's due
That's why it is so hard when nobody credits you

And you want credit for not taking credit
You want credit for not taking credit for the things you do
Those loving things you do

You never do it from the goodness of your heart
Turn insincerity into an art
You never do it from the goodness of your heart
You're only filling up your karmic shopping cart

Your secret credit rating is the highest score around
But you have turned into the single biggest bore around

And you want credit for not taking credit
You want credit for not taking credit for the things you do
Those loving things you do
Track Name: Didn't Know I Was Saying Goodbye
Didn't Know I Was Saying Goodbye

Little did I know when I was gazing at you
That it would prove to be my very last view
Little did I know when you were caught in my gaze
That after that there would be no more displays
Now my lows are staying low, my highs no longer high
You would've seen me shake, you would've seen me cry
I didn't know I was saying goodbye

The note we ended on just dogs could hear
Could be that's why it wasn't perfectly clear
Never has a sign been so poorly misread
Following your lead has left me badly misled
What is the ugly truth I'm wishing was a lie
I'll never understand, I shouldn't even try
I didn't know I was saying goodbye

I know why I still ask why
I didn't know I was saying goodbye
I know why I still ask why
I didn't know I was saying goodbye

Oh you never know, you'll never know
You'll never know the last time
Now you'll never show
And missing you will be my brand new past time

I know why I still ask why
I didn't know I was saying goodbye
