"Off The Map" as written by and Derek Grant Michael Andriano....
I needed more wine,you needed more sleep.
We just fought, two hours and seven minutes.
Honestly, I'm surprised we made it.

I retired to my chair, I grabbed my new guitar.
But I can't make a sound, you could hear poisonous dreams dropping all around.
Like rain, but I can ride the storm out.
Because I'm like the junkie for your smart mouth.

See I'm so far off the map the sun is shining,
While it's raining and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore someday.
So are you coming with me?
Anchors away.

I loosen my lips and the truth slips out.
Every ride on a fork tongue,
This twine of trust is unspun.
I can start to believe that's what you need from me.
So far from what I want for you but I'll lock it down and we'll make do.
You're right, there's only one real option,
And I'm here now so help me keep my voice down.

See I'm so far off the map the sun is shining,
While it's raining and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore someday.
So are you coming with me?
Anchors away.

Yeah I'm so far off the map the sun is shining,
While it's raining and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore someday.
So are you coming with me?
Anchors away.

    General CommentWell, this song I think it is pretty obvious.. how a good relationship can last through the hard times.
    It's probably my favorite song off of This Addiction, especially the opening lines.

    General CommentI actually think that this song is talking about how he may be in denial because he wants to think everything is just great, but really the relationship is coming to an imminent end. That may be because I'm in this position. But I know the feelings of it, and the song is speaking to me. LOVE IT, and I'd love anyway.
