Track Name: When We Get There
The minutes pass
and it's hours before I sleep,
'cause I'm still contemplating
when it's over, where we'll be.

And I can't speak
when I'd rather give up now
and make this last forever.
There's just got to be somehow.

When Autumn's drawing near,
and my vision's got less clear,
will you be worth the wait?
That's a chance I'd like to take.
We're going nowhere fast,
but we're growing up at last.
Will the end be worth the scare?
Well, we'll see when we get there.

I can't deny
these feelings anymore.
I'll tell you that I need you,
and I'll tell you I want more.

The timing sucks,
just like it always has,
but someone tell me,
why's it gotta turn out bad?

When Autumn's drawing near,
and my vision's got less clear,
will you be worth the wait?
That's a chance I'd like to take.
We're going nowhere fast,
but we're growing up at last.
Will the end be worth the scare?
Well, we'll see when we get there.
Track Name: I Had To Do It
If I had another choice, I'd make it in a second
If I had a second chance, I'd take it from the start
If my heavy heart were strong enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

It's selfish and I'm sorry but you know I had to do it
And I'll miss you every second but you know it's for the best
If my weary heart were well enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me 'round

You know I never meant to go and throw away a future
I guess I can't expect to ever hear from you again
If my broken heart were brave enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

I don't want to love you anymore
I don't want to love you anymore

I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me
I'm doing better now
I know you'll be ok without me 'round

If I had another choice, I'd make it in a second
If I had a second chance, I'd take it from the start
If my heavy heart were strong enough
I'd stay and let you keep it
But to know you is to love you
And I don't want to love you anymore

I don't want to love you anymore
I don't want to love you anymore
Track Name: Stay Right Now
I've got a knack for moving forward, a history of not
A permanent solution that I've found but haven't got
A face against my fingertips, a feeling I have learned
'Cause a lifetime full of liars taught me
I don't ever get what I deserve

So I'm staring to the silence and wearing just a smile
I'll take what you will give me, be it inches, be it miles
'Cause I'm here for the duration, the frustration, and the trial
I'm not leaving in the morning
Even though I know you're leaving in a while

It's okay
And I'm fine
There's no way
And no time
So just stay
For right now
Right now

The days are passing slowly, and I'm still on my own
But with this unfamiliar feeling, suddenly I'm not alone
And I'm missing all that emptiness that got me through my teens
If you don't mind me being honest
I just don't know what that means

And for the first time in my life, I can't sing what's on my tongue
'Cause it's scary when I say it, or when you say it, or when I hear it
Sung by all those people who have felt what I can't hide
No solution to this problem
So just listen to me now and don't decide

It's okay
And I'm fine
There's no way
And no time
So just stay
For right now
Right now
Track Name: Oh Yeah See
I'm sinking deeper to the bottom of my mattress
Waiting for a sign from you, or something
I can't believe that I even had to ask this
What are you waiting for?

I believed in you more than you believed in you and me
We were meant to fall apart
Oh, yeah, see, I saw it from the start
So why do you still break my heart?

I had a dream that you still liked to lay next to me now and then, and we never stopped talking
I can't believe that you ruined such a good thing
What were you hoping for?

I believed in you more than you believed in you and me
We were meant to fall apart
Oh, yeah, see, I saw it from the start
So why do you still break my heart?

Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart

Yeah
I believed in you more than you believed in you and me
We were meant to fall apart
Oh, yeah, see, I saw it from the start
So why do you still break my heart?

Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Be Here
Every time I think I'm feeling better,
I feel better off alone.
I'm better off alone.

Every time I go out thinking,
"this could be the night",
I change my tone.
I'm better off at home.

I'm better off alone.
I'm better off at home.

'Cause I don't want to be here.
I don't want to see you
have the time of your life,
the time of your life.
And I just want to let go,
but you had me from the get go.
Have the time of your life,
the time of your life without me.

Every time I feel like giving up
you always seem to change my mind.
It happens every time.

And every time I think we're going forward
we start going in rewind.
It happens every time.

It happens every time.
And so I'll change my mind.

I don't want to be here.
I don't want to see you
have the time of your life,
the time of your life.
And I just want to let go,
but you had me from the get go.
Have the time of your life,
the time of your life without me.

Without me.
Without me.
The time of your life without me.
Track Name: Here Comes Morning
Here comes morning, will you remember what we had?
Will you look at me the same way as before?

Here comes nothing short of feeling like I failed
Took a chance, I don't take chances anymore

How am I supposed to pass this off like you have done so easily?
How am I supposed to figure out what you're about anyway?

I am falling faster every second that I'm here with you
Can't walk away
I am running faster than and farther than I ever could
Still can't get away

Next time, if there is a next time anyway
Maybe I won't fall for what you'll say

Here comes next time, I question every move you make
My heart's pounding and I wonder why I stay

How am I supposed to pass it off like you have done so easily?
How am I supposed to figure out what you're about anyway?

I am falling faster every second that I'm here with you
Can't walk away
I am running faster than and farther than I ever could
Still can't get away

I am falling
I am falling
I am falling
I am falling

I am falling faster every second that I'm here with you
Can't walk away
I am running faster than and farther than I ever could
Still can't get away
Track Name: Boston (ft. Chris Mansfield of Fences)
I don't care where you're coming from, I'm never going back
You could beg and you could plead but I wouldn't recommend that
The day has come to say my piece, but calm and quiet I will keep
Your secret's mine, and I won't be the one
To try and raise the dead
So rest your worried head
Remember what I said
You chose to do the things you did back then
And this is just the end
My stranger, not my friend
No you are not my friend
I know, I know about the girls before
I know, I know what happened on my floor
So stay in Boston, babe, don't hold your breath
I already forgot we ever met
Track Name: The Disappearing Act
Many many weeks
And I'm still sleeping on my own
Waking to the whispers of the night
And I'm finding out the secrets
That I wish I'd never known
Keep me at a distance, I'm alright

But I'm lying to keep me afloat
And I'm trying to keep my eyes closed
Soon the dark will be gone
And the right won't feel wrong
But I'm dying to know where you go, oh

Many many times
I've wrestled thoughts of giving up
Swear I'd give it all to you tonight
But I've been told by many
Not to trust the one you love
Keep them at a distance. Yes, thats right

But I'm lying to keep me afloat
And I'm trying to keep my eyes closed
Soon the dark will be gone
And the right wont feel wrong
But I'm dying to know where you go, oh

So I'm lying to keep me afloat
And I'm trying to keep my eyes closed
Soon the dark will be gone
And the right wont feel wrong
But I'm dying to know where you go

Where you go, where you go
Track Name: Here's The Plan
I want to walk in the cold
with your arm on my shoulder,
stay here forever,
and never get older.
Laugh at eachother
for things that we've said
in the past and the present.
And what lies ahead.

I want to wake up beside you,
stay half asleep,
get lost in the covers, and
forever be
in a fine state of mind
with our bodies intwined,
and the passage of time
won't matter anymore.
Anymore.

So here is a song
that I wrote on a good day.
I hate to make you sad
with all the bad ones
that I play.
You know, even though
that I sometimes get angry,
I'm really just crazy.
So tell me that maybe

I want to wake up beside you,
stay half asleep,
get lost in the covers, and
forever be
in a fine state of mind
with our bodies intwined,
and the passage of time
won't matter anymore.
Anymore.

I could make you pancakes in the morning.
I promise you that this time I'll have eggs.
Please forgive me thinking you're adorable.
Maybe we should spend the day in bed.

I want to wake up beside you,
stay half asleep,
get lost in the covers, and
forever be
in a fine state of mind
with our bodies intwined,
and the passage of time
won't matter anymore.
Anymore.
Track Name: December
December skies remind me
of all the things I put behind me.
Can't fight back all those memories anymore.

But I'll face the facts, stay calm, relax.
Take a breath and let this feeling pass.

Tonight is the night
everything feels like it's okay again.
Tonight is the night
we'll put back the past and face this as friends.
Everyone's happy
just be talking,
forgetting what we fought about.
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

I'm writing this note
to let you know I'm still around.
I'm tired of avoiding what happened
and hating you for it.

I want to do better.
I want to feel better.
I want it to be the way it was.

Tonight is the night
everything feels like it's okay again.
Tonight is the night
we'll put back the past and face this as friends.
Everyone's happy
just be talking,
forgetting what we fought about.
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

The way it was
before we were.
Before I loved your every word.
Before I looked into your eyes.
And back before I realized
that everything I'd ever need
was standing right in front of me,
and somehow I just let that moment pass.

Tonight is the night
everything feels like it's okay again.
Tonight is the night
everything feels like it's okay again.

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Tonight is the night
everything feels like it's okay again.
Tonight is the night
we'll put back the past and face this as friends.
Everyone's happy
just be talking,
forgetting what we fought about.
Track Name: What I Need
I've got plans to make, but planning might be risky
I've got time to waste if you will waste it with me
And I know I dont know you well
But this could be good I can tell
So won't you keep me company please?

Lately I've been spending my time under the covers
wishing you were hiding with me, wash away the world
'Cause nothing that I've ever felt compares to what is happening now
Maybe I am crazy, but I'd like to be your girl
So strange to finally feel like what I need is there

And I'm no longer scared
And all my inhibitions vanish into the night air
And you and me will be what we will be
But only time will tell so I guess we'll see

Twenty years is long to wait I've battled broken hearts,
I'm great at being really independent, but its not as fun as
Sharing songs and sharing thoughts
And making out in parking lots
And being so inspired by the things that we could do
So keep me by your side, I'll stick with you, I swear

Cause I'm no longer scared
And all my inhibitions vanish into the night air
And you and me will be what we will be
But only time will tell so I guess we'll see

And all the problems we have to endure
I've been through all kinds of problems before
And these are nothing at all I assure you
The good outweighs the bad, times a million yeah!

I don't care, 'cause I'm no longer scared
And all my inhibitions vanish into the night air
And you and me will be what we will be
But only time will tell so I guess we'll see

Only time can tell so I guess we'll see
