Track Name: Near and Far
Never turned out right
But every thing’s okay
Staying up all night
Waiting for the day
That she finds you, again.

Life moves so slowly
You hardly even notice
How lonely you are
You’re near and you’re far
You’re coming up behind

Gaining up on you
The one you left behind
Try to shake it loose
She’s always on your mind

Gaining up on you
This love could be so fine
Try but only lose
You’re running out of time

Nowhere feels like home
Without a little space
Staying all alone
Waiting for the day
That he finds you, again.

Life moves so slowly
You hardly even notice
How lonely you are
You’re near and you’re far
You’re coming up behind

Gaining up on you
The one you left behind
Try to shake it loose
She’s always on your mind

Gaining up on you
This love could be so fine
Try but only lose
You’re running out of time
Track Name: Everything and Nothing
Full of yourself
You’re not fooling anyone else
‘Cause I’ve known you better
When you changed like the weather

Kissing my face
Putting me back in that place
When I knew you better
When you changed like the weather

Breaking this off
To do what you want
Is the best thing
For us

Can’t go this way
Say you want me
Pray you need me
Give me everything and nothing
Track Name: Young Days
Soon, so soon
Soon I’ll be leaving as a whisper on the wind
Soon, so soon
The trees will have fallen
Uncovering what they hid

I’ll call you half awake to see if you’re okay
Now I’m lost, all the same
There’s no need to say
It’s not like our young days
When I was lost
Trippin' down memory lane

Give, just give
Until the day comes
When the river has dried up
Still, better still
We’ll run from our loved ones
And turn our heads against the young

I’ll call you half awake to see if you’re okay
Now I’m lost, all the same
There’s no need to say
It’s not like our young days
When I was lost
Trippin' down memory lane
Track Name: Another Dream
Cheap beer and plastic cups
No chance of waking up
Three cheers for a long day
Never so surprised to hear you say

I’m falling and I’ll keep falling

No chance of making up
Skin is thicker when not giving a fuck
The sky is empty and I am grey
I’m forgetting how to enjoy the way

I’m falling and I’ll keep falling

It’s the second time you’ve cried
And I realized you didn’t want to leave
I’ve been mean but you’re the only one
Who can really help me
I’ve hurt my pretty baby

Falling and I’ll keep falling
Track Name: Here We Go
Here we go
I’m a tragedy
Setting off alarms
Whispering low
Like the morning she woke up in my arms

I know that she’s got big plans for me
And I can see them in her eyes
I know that she’s got just what I need
And I can be there if I try

I never wanted to say
I shouldn’t have fallen for you
You’re telling me to go your way
I couldn’t help falling for you

Patiently
The morning glow
Waits around awhile
Push and pull your cares about
Lay them in a pile

I know that she’s got big plans for me
And I can see them when she smiles
I know that she’s got just what I need
And I can be there in awhile

I never wanted to say
I shouldn’t have fallen for you
You’re telling me to go your way
I couldn’t help falling for you
Track Name: Out of Place
Miles away in a room
No one can see you
‘Till you’re gone
Far gone, out of place

Promise to visit me
Be it soon
On a rainy afternoon
’Til I’m gone
Far gone, out of place

No idea where I’m going or where I want to be
Just want to feel the weight off of me
No idea where I’m going or where I want to be
I just want to feel the weight off of me
And I know I will

The wrinkle in your brow
Feels antiquated now
After we left my room
Track Name: Biding Time
You were right
And I’ve been dying to tell you
It just might happen to be soon

I’m out of mind
And I keep trying to reach you
Well it just might happen to be true

We can’t so you don’t mind
Better off biding time
We can’t so you don’t mind
Better off biding time

I’m in your sights
But I keep shying from you
Well it just might happen to be true

You were right
And I’ve been dying to tell you
Well it just might happen to be soon

We can’t so you don’t mind
Better off biding time
We can’t so you don’t mind
Better off biding time
