Track Name: Here's to Hoping
It's kind of funny how different things are today
after only two years to think that it seems like yesterday
I was waking up to you

I fear that I'm starting to forget
I'm letting go of everything I regret
So sorry to say
It's getting better today

I hope when you close your eyes
as you fall asleep at night
all your heavy eyes can see
are silhouettes of me

She's gone mad again
this isn't the first time I've been woken from a
dream I had
of pretty little flowers and the finer
things in life
I know I can make reality
can I learn to let her go?
and the pain she brings
so here's to hoping

I hope when you close your eyes
as you fall asleep at night
all your heavy eyes can see
are silhouettes of me
I hope when you close your eyes
as you fall asleep at night
all your heavy eyes can see
are silhouettes of me

I've got many addictions
but by far the worst one is you
I've got many addictions
but by far the worst one is you
I've got many addictions
but by far the worst one is you
I've got many addictions
but by far the worst one is you

I hope when you close your eyes
as you fall asleep at night
all your heavy eyes can see
are silhouettes of me
I hope when you close your eyes
as you fall asleep at night
all your heavy eyes can see
are silhouettes of me
Track Name: CarryMeAgainSomeday
I never said that you were wrong
for giving up on love
I just thought all along
that you were the one
I never said that you were wrong
for letting go of us

I'm forced to run
away from what she thought I'd done
I welcome the sun
to remind me of another day lost

her words were falling on deaf ears
not sure if I'm even seeing clear

Lost in translation a foreign film
Perception is flawed when time stands still

Relapse to my head
play back the reel of
the things that were said (the things that were said)
finding courage through a heart that's ruined
and turning my life around instead

Gypsy eyes mesmerize me
if love is blind then I don't wanna see
I don't want to see

Picture perfect irrationality
can't feel the surface we've dug too deep
Claustrophobic no air to breath
sinking slowly we're lost at sea

I'm trying hard to hear the words you'd say
I'm trying hard but they seem further away

Relapse to my head
play back the reel of
the things that were said (the things that were said)
finding courage through a heart that's ruined
and turning my life around instead
Relapse to my head
play back the reel of
the things that were said (the things that were said)
finding courage through a heart that's ruined
and turning my life around instead

Bring her back to me
I can't fall asleep without you
do you remember when we said "I do"?

Memories like portraits
Hang from a sewn up sleeve
Try balancing karma
when the earth falls apart at the seams
Memories like portraits
Hang from a sewn up sleeve
Try balancing karma
when the earth falls apart at the seams

when the earth falls apart at the seams
Track Name: Spring Fling (feat. Josh from Scarlett Avenue)
Well I guess I can't complain about
this roller-coaster heartache
isn't that what it takes to write a song anyway

So I guess I should be thanking you
instead of analyzing your skewed cues
and dwelling on what you said yesterday

I'm feeling much better today
without your absence getting in the way
forgive me for forgetting you
forget me while I'm giving you away

So dream on dreamer
what are you searching to find?
when love is lost
you'll be doomed to walk this dying world alive
So dream on dreamer
what are you searching to find?
love's not enough
to help your moony head find peace of mind

So please promise me
that you'll think about when we met last Spring
when you taught me how to love again
that's why it's hard to see the end of us
and what we could have been

I wish I didn't wan't you anymore
Will it take over a year just like before

So dream on dreamer
what are you searching to find?
when love is lost
you'll be doomed to walk this dying world alive
So dream on dreamer
what are you searching to find?
love's not enough
to help your moony head find peace of mind

I guess you're just not worth my time
so go get yours and I'll get mine
I guess you're just not worth my time
so go get yours
so go get yours
so go get yours

I've been searching for a life that's worth it
you're fading slowly while my light shines perfect
don't look back to me for reassurance
reoccurring memories prove worthless

I've been searching for a life that's worth it (dream on dreamer)

So dream on dreamer
what are you searching to find?
when love is lost

to help your moony head find peace of mind
Track Name: Pillow Talk
Starving myself again
searching for any excuse to look better than him
keep trying to tell myself it's what's inside that counts
you think I'd figure that out

and I just got over getting over you
you pulled me back in
when I got your phone call
at 4 am, at 4 am, at 4 am

I'll stop thinking of you when the nightmares fade away

I saved every text message
as pathetic as that is
I can't let go of the memory
of the first time you told me that
you see yourself making
progress with me
progress with me

I hope you sleep soundly tonight
and if you think of me well that's alright
I'm running out of patience
you broke my heart I hope this breaks your concentration

My guts are spilled upon the floor
you've given me this feeling too many times before
you're effortlessly bringing me to my knees
in attempt to create perfect irony

distance makes the heart grow fonder
but I can't take this any longer
distance makes the heart grow fonder
but I can't take this any longer

distance makes the heart grow fonder
I can't take this any longer
distance makes the heart grow fonder
I can't take this any longer
and I miss you
and I hope you miss me too

I hope you sleep soundly tonight
and if you think of me well that's alright
It's in everything I do
another deja vu night spent thinking of you
(thinking of you)
I'll spend every night thinking of
Track Name: I Didn't Quit (It was a Forfeit)
Look at the bright side
your heart is dead but your body's still alive
look at the bright side
your chest's stained red but love can still survive

and I know and I know
this healing process is far too fucking slow
it's taken me two years
to finally wipe away the tears

so get up so get up
run away as far as you can
we'll split the distance
between heaven, hell, the ocean, and sand

Feverish in my head
to think that I was better off dead
Still following footsteps left
I think it's time to my mind to rest
Feverish in my head
to think that I was better off dead
Still following footsteps left
I think it's time to my mind to rest

Call me a quitter all you want
I forfeit this game that you force me to play

I can't hear her name I've had enough
It's too much for this brittle heart to bear

I pledge allegiance to myself
that I know I can swear
that I know I can swear

Feverish in my head
to think that I was better off dead
Still following footsteps left
I think it's time to my mind to rest
Feverish in my head
to think that I was better off dead
Still following footsteps left
I think it's time to my mind to rest

I don't think I'm over-thinking
I've lost sight and I'm glad it's sinking in
this time I'll pick up the pieces
this time I won't let her in

I won't let her in
