Track Name: Wrong Timing
Times are changing, rearranging, making my life how it should be
But the hard times are never over
Take this weight off of my shoulders!
I’m done with the fighting
The nervous nail-biting
Messing things up with the wrong timing
The clock is ticking, seconds blinking
When will my clock will run out?
Track Name: Green Line To Heath Street
What are you waiting for?
If you want peace, prepare for war
So save your words, they’re just not worth my time
Your pity stories make me sick
You’ve showed me that I should not think
My trust in you could ever be restored

Our friendship’s not important
You’ve proven that with your inaction
There’s something there that seems to hold you back
At least I’m not a failure
The words you say are insincere
So spit them out, I hope they make you choke

You caused this strain on my mind
There’s no way I’ll let you decide
I’ll throw you and your problems into the cold
There’s no reason to argue
The past is gone, there’s nothing you can do
So let it go, go look for someone new

Our friendship’s not important
You’ve proven that with your inaction
There’s something there that seems to hold you back
At least I’m not a failure
The words you say are insincere
So spit them out, I hope they make you choke

If you want peace, prepare for war!
Track Name: Time To Heal
I won’t soon forget you
And all those nights we spent pretending we were real
Hours spent just hanging onto feelings
Of a love that we just need some time to heal

I’ve dreamt of you so long
That every time I see your face
I miss the way you used
To put me in my place
And I could stare into your eyes
Until we fell asleep each night
Cause you’re the one that
Makes me feel alright

I could yell for hours
But you’re too far away to hear
I’ll never feel the same for someone
As I’ve felt for you
I think I’ve made that very clear

I’ve dreamt of you so long
That every time I see your face
I miss the way you used
To put me in my place
And I could stare into your eyes
Until I fell asleep each night
Cause you’re the one that
Makes me feel okay

And I could tell you that I’m sorry
But would I be wasting my time?
Track Name: Brighter Days
I’m tired of you putting the blame on me
Why don’t you look into the mirror?
You’ll see that you’re caught up in all the games that you play
Empty heartedness never looked prettier

I think the worst case is that you’ll end up
Back on top of him
I think I see brighter days
In my future
I think I just need to let go
Cause I’ve been holding on too tight
There’s not a word I could say
That would make things right

Shut your mouth, I can’t listen to the judgments you make
You make me feel sick and I’m sure that you’re fake
Maybe you should just grow up and move on
Forget everything we had back in our brighter days

I think the worst case is that you’ll end up
Back on top of him
I think I see brighter days
In my future
I think I just need to let go
Cause I’ve been holding on too tight
There’s not a word I could say
That would make things right
Track Name: Song About Giving Up
I’ve never written a song about giving up
But I think that this could be the first
I need a reason to move on with my life
I need a reason not to have to hurt
You see the problem is that I do this to myself
I bottle everything that makes me mad
But I can’t stop you from thinking that I’m bad news
And yeah, I think that makes me kinda sad

I should have been in bed three hours ago,
But hey that’s my fault
I’ve been awake for way too long
And honestly, that’s the reason that I’m sitting here
Refreshing every app on my phone
The pizza that I ordered at quarter of one
Is probably getting cold

And I know you hate me!
I can feel it in all my bones
But there’s something that reminds me of you
And that’s why I’m sitting here alone

They say the future is brighter than the past
So I’m convinced that there’s no use turning back

I never said that I’d be under control
But this is your fault
Burning eyes and wide awake
As I spend these nights alone without you
Wishing I had never have stayed
The future that you promised is fading away
And there’s nothing you can say

And I know you hate me!
I can feel it in all my bones
But there’s something that reminds me of you
And that’s why I’m sitting here alone

They say the future is brighter than the past
So I’m convinced that there’s no use turning back!
Track Name: Better Than This
It’s been six months since I promised you I’d stay
I figured I would leave this place when I was older anyway
But you just sped things up for me,
And I blame your lies and the person you became
I’m sorry that I let you treat me this way

I’ve been trying to pretend
That the two of us make sense
But it’s all in my head
And I think
That I could do better than this
So when you tell me it’s over
I’ll be happy to move on
I’ll leave this place cause I’m sick of these four walls
That you built when you thought we were stronger

I wear you like an anchor around my neck
You’re pulling me down, you’re sinking me like a ship
That’s your life, it’s all you have and you’re throwing it away
Right now I see straight through your lies
There’s nothing here for me

I’ve been trying to pretend
That the two of us make sense
But it’s all in my head
And I think
That I could do better than this
So when you tell me it’s over
I’ll be happy to move on
I’ll leave this place cause I’m sick of these four walls
That you built when you thought we were stronger

You said you needed some space
Said it wasn't the right time or the place
Hit me like a slap across the face
I guess we were running at a different pace

You said you needed some space
Said it wasn't the right time or the place
Hit me like a slap across the face
I guess we were running at a different pace
