Track Name: Over It
"Over It"

It's fine it's cool
It's no big deal
Just think you should know how I feel
And you're a fool
'Cause Let's be real
It takes time for wounds to heal

And if I'm being honest
I wouldn't say I'm great
I hope you give me second thoughts
You make me die and that's okay

I can't hide away
The mess I started
And I'll drive away
A little more broken hearted

I'll start to fall apart
Until I’m departed
And now I'll keep my heart
A little more closely guarded

I'll get over it
I'll get over it
I'll get over you
And I'll be moving on real soon

This time it's cool
I understand
'Cause these things never go to plan
You don't give me a second thought
I'll carry on I hope I can

And of course it started raining
And I start to decay
And of course I'm here complaining
'Cause now I'm dying every day

I can't hide away
This mess I started
And I'll drive away
A little more broken hearted

I'll start to fall apart
Until I'm departed
And now I'll keep my heart
A little more closely guarded

I'll get over it
I'll get over it
I'll get over you
And I'll be moving on real soon

I'll get over it
I'll get over it
I'll get over you
And I'll be moving on real soon

Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Get over it

And I'll be moving on real soon

Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Get over it
Track Name: Easy
"Easy"

Sometimes
It feels like God Designed
My whole life
to keep me awake at night
And frustrate
Kinda like the split second in time
where its on the tip of your mind
But you forget what you’re gonna say

Its like I spend
Every hour
And all day
Trying to stay awake
But I ain’t
And trying not to wake up late
Some days I swear i think the city wants to punch me in the face

And even though I’m finally free
Im all alone and now it’s just me
It’s been a long time since I could just breathe
Just take it easy on me

Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Just take it easy on me

Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me

Yeah yeah
I’m looking for somewhere I can be
Where the temperature is less than a hundred and three
I could use a couple less degrees
Cuz I been burning up in the heat

I might be dying
Cuz the city is on fire
Deaths cousin has abandoned me
I lack what I require
Circumstances dire
I been living to the wire
And I’m tired
If I say I’m chill
Then I’m a liar

And even though I’m finally free
Im all alone and now it’s just me
It’s been a long time since I been asleep
Just take it easy on me

Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Take it easy on me
Track Name: Honestly
"Honestly"

Growing pains and
Sweatshirt stains
Hanging off of your bed frame
Are we in this together?

Honestly
Be honest with me
Honestly

And I miss you at night
When it's quiet
Try to fight what's not right
But despite I'm scared to be in the dark alone with no light
We'd beat ourselves up when we forgot to say goodnight
But now when we forget it doesn't stay on our minds
Watching TV, vanilla tea, and coffee,
I'd get excited when you'd text me
But now texts and tea are just routine

Honestly
Be honest with me
Honestly

Remember when I made you hot chocolate
And I got mad cause you didn't want it
Track Name: It's a Dangerous Business (Going out Your Door)
"It's a Dangerous Business (Going out Your Door)"

Keep the fire
while I’m inside
I’ll not be a minute
We’ve lost the light
But it’s still bright
We’ll put it out when we are finished

And O
I know
I couldn’t leave you alone
I hope
You know
I’m always comin home

The air is sweeter here
I found love and hate
And longing here my dear
The birds sing winter's song
And come the flames of fall
And the time that we loved wasting
Is not wasted at all

And though I’m poor
What’s mine is yours
I’ve got no change
But we always find a way
In your backyard
With our guitars
There’s always room for more
Well we could stop the car
Just to stare up at the stars
We never get too lost 'cause we never get too far

And O
I know
I couldn’t leave you alone
I hope
You know
I’m always comin home

The air is sweeter here
I found love and hate
And longing here my dear
The birds sing winter's song
And come the flames of fall
And the time that we loved wasting
Is not wasted at all

Something that I was taught
But not so much I’ve found
Was If you listen punk rock
You’re supposed to hate you’re town
And I never wonder how
The friendships that I found
Will all still be around
Though we leave The Shire for now

And the air is just a little more clear
In the trees and lakes and fields
And mountains here
The streams sing summer's melody
And come the days of spring
When we’ve wasted all our time
We haven’t wasted anything

The air is sweeter here
I found love and hate
And longing here my dear
The birds sing winter's song
And come the flames of fall
And the time that we loved wasting
Is not wasted at all


And though I left an empty room
I’ll be home before too soon
Strap on your skateboard shoes
We’ve got so much time to lose
Track Name: Broken Ones & Cynics
"Broken Ones & Cynics"

Said the boy
I don't need anyone else
I can take on the world
All by myself
I'll work and I'll fight
You'll never put out my light
I'll never
Put my dreams on the shelf

They said
The world is all filled
With sold out critics
And broken ones and cynics
But you can be anyone you want

But the boy knew
That they didn't t mean it
I've already seen it
That's not what they really want

Grow up and get a job
Don’t be such a lazy slob
You've got responsibility
Don't move off to the city

You should
Be realistic
I don't think you should risk it
You should
Always have a backup plan
When you're old you'll understand

He said
I don't need anyone else
I can take on the world
All by myself
And I'll work and I'll fight
You'll never put out my light
I'll never put my dreams on the shelf

Lays awake all night
But he's dreaming
And he's in the spotlight
And everyones screaming

And the people who told him
You can't do it were wrong
And five years along
the world knows his songs

He said
I don't need no job
Say goodbye to dad and mom
Damn responsibility
I'm moving to the city
If I’m being realistic
I know I have to risk it
Never have a backup plan
The rest of you can't understand

I don't need anyone else
I can take on the world
All by myself
And I'll work and I'll fight
You'll never put out the light
I'll never put my dreams on the shelf

He thinks he knows everything
'Cause he's got a plan
And some songs to sing
And he thinks he don't need no one
'Cause he's different
Just like everyone

Well The world was all filled
With the ruthless critics
And broken ones and cynics
Who never got what they wanted

One more boy
Who settled up and settled down
His dreams keep him awake
And they haunt him
It's all for the best
When you're just like the rest
You'll find you have nothing to fear
Threw his capo away
'Cause he forgot how to play
He hasn't touched his guitar for years
Track Name: Anyway
"Anyway"

My eyes are shut
Ben's arm around my neck
All I hear
Is the silence in the space between breaths

Collective sigh
Eyes shut tight
And yesterday's
So far away

I know you don't believe in god
But anyway
I pray
He won't take you away
And I know you don't believe in heaven
Anyway
I pray

I'm staring at the floor
Cedars head against my own
I won't pretend to know how scared you are
Don't face this alone

Collective sigh
Eyes shut tight
And yesterday's
So far away

I know you don't believe in god
But anyway
I pray
He won't take you away
And I know you don't believe in heaven
Anyway
I pray

We're right here to take your hand
You'll make it through I know you can
Until then I'll be right here
Thinking of you

I know you don't believe in god
But anyway
I pray
He won't take you away
And I know you don't believe in heaven
Anyway
I pray
Track Name: Hoodie
"Hoodie"

You never liked taking my clothes
I said “it’s cold”
She said I've got my own"

I wanna rush
back to you
It’s just us
We’re on YouTube
you can pick the videos
I’m too tired to choose
And my phone is gonna die soon
won’t go to sleep until it do
Ill stay awake
For you

I’ll stay up with you
I'll stay up with you

I never liked playin your card games
Or callin your dad by his first name
Lean on me while you fade away
We could live on the couch today
We never seem to stay awake anyway

I wanna rush
Back to her
Open up my arms and I’ll let you fall back in again I’ll keep you safe and warm
And I'm gonna have to go soon
Don’t fall asleep until I do
I’ll stay awake
For you

I’ll stay up with you
I'll stay up with you

I’ll stay up with you

I never like when you leave
I’m not sure how to be
At least you have my hoodie
Even if you don’t have me
Track Name: The Salt Air & the Tide
"The Salt Air & the Tide"

And the rain falls soft upon the fields
Ere I go outside
And you forgot what isn't real, you breathe the salt air
That comes in with the tide

Will I find her
Beyond the sea
Eastern shores are calling me
Across the ocean
Gray ships will lead me somewhere green

Follow olden roads back home
Follow over hills and under trees and broken stones
Follow olden souls back home
Though I've never been there it's somewhere that I know

And may the wind be always at my back
Ere I find my way
And until we raise the parting glass
We’ll let worries fade away

And I won't rest
Till I stand on giants steps
And watch the wind beget
The sails of passing ships
And fishers nets

Upon the sea
Western shores are calling me
Across the ocean
Gray ships will lead me somewhere green

Follow olden roads back home
Follow over seas and on the breeze of rocky coasts
Follow olden souls back home
Though I've never been there
It’s somewhere that I know

And when my story’s at its end
And I wait to see my friends again
When the salt air and the tide
Bring me to the end of life
I finally lay down and
Stick my sword into the sand
And take her hand

Follow olden roads back home
Follow over hills and under trees and stepping stones
Follow olden souls back home
Though I've never been there it's somewhere that I know
Track Name: Whistle Down
"Whistle Down"

I can't figure it out
What you are to me
Or where we'll go
I realize I don't know

Blame it on my neurons, firing too slow
cause I'm a fool compared to you
And you're so beautiful

I can't figure it out
I can't figure you out
I can't figure me out
But I can feel it comin' out

Stare at you across the room
Like I'm on earth and you're the moon
I wanna stay with you the whole night through
I'm used to you but you're something new

I can't figure it out
I can't figure you out
I can't figure me out
But I feel it comin' out

I'll tell you
What I think about
The way you are and the way you move and the way you laugh and the way you lose
Me
Track Name: Fallout
"Fallout"

Could you leave me alone for a minute?
I’m wondering why, I didn’t get to finish
I’m trying to find, another way to spin it
My heart is stuck up in it
And I’m still tryna fix it
It was whole but now it isn’t

I never thought
I could fall out with you
And I don’t like it
But you hurt me too

I never thought
I could write a happy song
And I don’t like it
But I guess I wasn’t wrong

Break my heart apart
You leave me in the dark when I haven’t got a spark
And I haven’t got a
I can play the part
And pretend it isn’t hard
Where am I supposed to start?

I’m not the one
Who isn’t there when you fall down
You shot the gun
It isn’t fair I was called out
I’m on the run
But I’m not scared she’s all around
Everyone
Is here but they don’t feel the fallout

If I could stop checking my phone for a moment
I’m trying to see (be), I said I’m always hoping
I’m trying to breath but, my chest feels like it’s open
My thoughts just keep on roaming
I’m trying to control em
I’m pathetic and I know it

I never thought
I could fall for you
And I don’t like it
What am I supposed to do?

I never thought
I could write a happy song
And I don’t like it
But I guess I wasn’t wrong

Break my heart apart
Leave me in the dark when I haven’t got a spark
And I haven’t got a
I can play my part
And pretend it isn’t hard
Where am I supposed to start?

I’m not the one
Who isn’t there when you fall down
You shot the gun
It isn’t fair I was called out
If anyone
Could take my hand and pull me out
Everyone
Is here but they don’t feel the fallout

I’m not the one
I lost this one
I’m not the one
I lost this one
The way he dreamed
The way she'd listen
The way she'd sleep
The way you are
I’m not worth it leave me scarred
I’m not worth it leave me scarred
You look perfect in the dark
You look perfect in the dark
