Track Name: Death by a Broken Heart
I try to tell myself that it’s really not that bad, as I’m sitting on a stone, waiting for something to hatch. Will we ever build a home? Cause that’s where my heart will dwell. Will you ever love me back? Baby, only time will tell. Only time will tell. I try to tell myself that it’s really not that bad, as I’m sitting on a stone, waiting for something to hatch. Will we ever build a home? Cause that’s where my heart will dwell. Will you ever love me back? Baby, only time will tell! You gave yourself a timeline to fall in love with me. The problem is, it’s almost midnight, and I’m not ready to end this story. I get depressed when I start to reminisce, and I can’t help but think about, all our inside jokes to myself. I can’t live without you! I don’t wanna live without you anymore! The doctors will never discover, the doctors won’t know where to start. But deep down she’ll know in the pit of her stomach, it was death by a broken heart. The doctors will never discover, no, the doctors won’t know where to start. But deep down she’ll know in the pit of her stomach, it was death by a broken heart! The doctors will never discover, the doctors won’t know where to start. But deep down she’ll know in the pit of her stomach, it was death by a broken heart. The doctors will never discover, no, the doctors won’t know where to start. But deep down she’ll know in the pit of her stomach, it was death by a broken heart!
Track Name: Silly Things
I can’t let you go! I know I said I’d take it slow, and I’m sorry. I’m just trying not to choke, on this stomach in my throat, and this limbo air, it just doesn’t compare, to when my head is in the clouds. I’m never going to come down. I know I dream of silly things, but that’s just who I wanna be, won’t give up so easily. I know you’re not the best for me, doesn’t change that I want you to be, we’ll make it eventually. Am I not good enough? Or was it just too much? And this waiting game is so irritating. And a major flaw, that I’m well aware of, since I was young, I run on instant, gratification. Waiting to find the one. Born with the gift of love. Cursed cause it’s never enough. So put up your dukes cause I’m fighting to get to you. I know it’s not easy to break down your wall. It was never my intention to fall. And maybe I deserve a girl who’s crazy like me. But I could search the end of the earth, and never find a girl who can bring me to my knees. You bring me to my knees! I know I dream of silly things, but that’s just who I wanna be, won’t give up so easily. I know you’re not the best for me, doesn’t change that I want you to be, we’ll make it eventually. I know I dream of silly things!
Track Name: My Last Key
Forgive me for the next three minutes or so. I’m trying hard to write down what I wrote on the road. When I left your apartment. Last February 11th (last February 11th) I know it’s inevitable, I’m gonna lose her in the end. Until then I’ll run myself through the ringer. For another failed attempt. I know that I tend to smother. I can’t help the fact that I love her. If only I could get her to see. She brings out the best in me. She brings out the best in me! If I have to let you go for you to know. Then damn it, baby I will, find the will. To make my beating heart stand still. But if I let you go, then we’ll never know. The true potential of two hearts made of stone. I never wanted somethin so bad! I won’t let it slip through my hands. Maybe you were meant to be, my last key! I never wanted somethin so bad! I won’t let it slip through my hands. Maybe you were meant to be, my last key! Can I say your name? Can I say your name? Can I say your name? Can I say your name? Can I say your name? Can I say your name? Can I say your name? Can I say your name? They say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Sometimes I don’t know why, why I even bother. They say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Sometimes I don’t know why, why I even bother. I never wanted somethin so bad! I won’t let it slip through my hands. Maybe you were meant to be, my last key! I never wanted somethin so bad! I won’t let it slip through my hands. Maybe you were meant to be, my last key!
Track Name: A Long Time Coming
The stars never seemed so close. I can almost reach them on the tips of my toes. Heart shaped symbols, broken down the seam. You’ll never know how much this means to me. Somebody pinch me, I must be dreamin. Somebody tell me there’s gotta be a reason for this. A reason to be where I am, and who I’m with. (Let’s go!) Take my hand, follow me. It’s the second star to the right, and straight on til morning. Close your eyes, you will see. Your dreams suddenly turned reality. Somebody pinch me, I must be dreamin. Somebody tell me there’s gotta be a reason for this. A reason to be where I am, and who I’m with. I still get butterflies, I still get butterflies, every time. I still get butterflies, I still get butterflies, every time. I still get butterflies, I still get butterflies, every time. Somebody pinch me, I must be dreamin. Somebody tell me there’s gotta be a reason for this. A reason to be where I am, and who I’m with. Somebody pinch me, I must be dreamin. Somebody tell me there’s gotta be a reason for this. A reason to be where I am, and who I’m with.
Track Name: You're So 7 Years Ago
Maybe lately I’ve been turning a one eighty. You’ve got me hangin upside down again. The truth is it’s useless to consider getting through this, without tearing from the scars I’ve tried so hard to mend. I thought that you learned from your mistakes. Turns out they were never really yours to make. Someone please tell me, the difference between, infatuation and love. Or is it just another drug? And I’ve been up all night listening to Jesse. It makes me feel alright. Like there’s a light. At the end of the tunnel! You must be a masochist. For torturing yourself over again. You must be a masochist. For torturing yourself over again. I’m afraid I’ll have to admit. The knife in my back wasn’t an accident. Someone please tell me, the difference between, infatuation and love. Or is it just another drug? And I’ve been up all night listening to Jesse. It makes me feel alright. Like there’s a light. At the end of the tunnel! I know you don’t think that you’re worthy of love. You use me, but I swear that I’ll never give up. I know you don’t think that you’re worthy of love. You use me, but I swear that I’ll never give up on you. Thought I told you like, “my tommy gun” once said, “I am heaven sent”! I hope you don’t forget! I hate to love you. And you love to hate me, so, It’s not like it even matters. You’re so seven years ago! And I hate to love you. And you love to hate me, so, It’s not like it even matters. You’re so seven years ago.
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
Bending to break. Forgiving all of my mistakes. Finding truth I never thought I’d face. It’s hard standing in place. While I shake at the waist. I’m letting sleeping dogs lie. While we wave goodbye for one last time. For one last time. Can I borrow you for a little while? Or will you stay with me? As I beg for your smile. They say nothing good can last forever. I just want a chance to make it better. So don’t give up on me just quite yet. Promise you will see, this through the end! All I wanna do is make you happy. All I wanna do is watch you smile. Wish I could stop the world from spinning. We could put life on hold for a while. (they say nothing good can last forever, I just want a chance to make it better, they say nothing good can last forever, I just want a chance to make it better) All I wanna do is make you happy. All I wanna do is watch you smile. Wish I could stop the world from spinning. We could put life on hold for a while. We could put life on hold for a while.
Track Name: The Same Charade
Life is a sick game, and if everything happens for a reason. Then why does everything replay? Over and over again the same charade. And my insecurities, are keepin me from believin’. But if your heart is worth the wait, I’ll try my hardest to receive it. And I’ll warn you once again. Just like I did in the beginning. I refuse to lay my love dormant. I apologize for admitting. I know that patience is a virtue, but with your innocence at stake, please know I never meant to hurt you. But my sanity is in jeopardy I’m not willing to recreate the same charade. The same charade. I’m walking a fine line between sickness and health. Please try to ignore these spewing words from my mouth. I’m trapped inside my head, I’m trying hard to make it out. Am I running from these demons or just running from myself. I’m walking a fine line between sickness and health. Please try to ignore these spewing words from my mouth. I’m trapped inside my head, I’m trying hard to make it out. Am I running from these demons or just running from myself. I know that patience is a virtue, but with your innocence at stake, please know I never meant to hurt you. But my sanity is in jeopardy I’m not willing to recreate the same charade. The same charade. If I was portrayed as the ending of days, would I save the parade or sabotage the escape? If I was portrayed as the ending of days, would I save the parade or sabotage the escape? Sabotage the escape.
Track Name: To Whom It May Concern
I’ll take what you gave me. I’ll turn it into something greater. Something to save me. Save me from this god forsaken world. I know that I was never meant to live this 9 to 5. Give me a sign. Swear to me we’ll make it out alive. Is it wrong for me to think, that the truth is out of reach? Is it wrong for me to think, that the truth is out of reach? I know how to play the game of life, I never said I liked it. I learned how to win without a fight, hate to say I’m good at it. Cards dealt, a hand with deuces wild, do I fold or do I try? We never know quite when to show, pray to god for aces high. Are you weak? Or are you only starving for attention? Wandering a life of masquerades and false intentions. I see everything I need to make believe. I see everything I need to make believe. I’ll take what you gave me. I’ll turn it into something greater. Something to save me. Save me from this god forsaken world. I know that I was never meant to live this 9 to 5. Give me a sign. Swear to me we’ll make it out alive.
Track Name: Fortune Teller
Don’t cut me down to size just yet. We won’t see eye to eye, I’ve accepted that fact. Don’t sew up this wound quite yet. I still think there’s time to get what I want back. Cause I’ll take you, to the back of my mind. And I’ll make you, give back what was mine. Maybe then you will see, the true love inside of me (maybe then you will see, the true love inside of me) If I could go back in time, would I even change a thing? The mistakes I’ve made along the way, made me into the man I never thought I’d want to be. Build a bridge just to burn it down, will you save me when I start to drown? I’m in over my head once again, but I’m fine without you now. Who are you kidding? We all knew from the beginning, the people you think that you loved all along, were just an excuse to write down in a song. If I could go back in time, would I even change a thing? The mistakes I’ve made along the way, made me into the man I never thought I’d want to be. What if I told you that I already knew, every little thing that I’d eventually go through. It’s hard telling the future, when, you know what’s on the other side. It’s hard building a future when, you’re staring into loveless eyes. It’s hard telling the future, when, you know what’s on the other side. It’s hard building a future, with, your fortune teller lies.
Track Name: Don't Flatter Yourself
It would be nice if I could see you tonight, and tell you everything that I hate to your face. Might be a mistake, but when it’s all said and done, I’ll be able to fill up this empty space. And I’ve wished upon a star, too many times before. And I’ve tried so fucking hard to make a lover from a whore. Mirror mirror on the wall, your beauty staring back, don’t mean nothing at all. Heartless and hopeless, forever you’ll need, to feed your thirst without subtlety. Don’t get me wrong, I am over this. Just want to reiterate in case you missed. I never said that you were wrong, for giving up on love. I just thought all along, that you were the one. Mirror mirror on the wall, your beauty staring back, don’t mean nothing at all. Heartless and hopeless, forever you’ll need, to feed your thirst without subtlety. When I was only seven, I would dream of hell or heaven, thinking anywhere but here, is where I wanna be. So don’t flatter yourself, I’ve been battling depression, well before you ripped my heart out. When I was only seven, I would dream of hell or heaven, thinking anywhere but here, is where I wanna be. So don’t flatter yourself, I’ve been battling depression, well before you ripped my heart out. When I was only seven, I would dream of hell or heaven, thinking anywhere but here, is where I wanna be. So don’t flatter yourself, I’ve been battling depression, well before you ripped my heart out. Well before you ripped my heart out!
