Track Name: Backpacks & Train Tracks
We're getting out of here
I fell in love with this place
It's not over yet
We're minutes apart but miles away
We were running on empty
The best part of a week has took it's toll on me

Looking back on the last few days
The bruises will go and the scars will fade
I'l hold these moments close to my heart
And hope I learn from my mistakes

2009 took me back to 2010
And the best I've ever had
Was the best I've heard since way back then
I'm feeling better now
I miss the ringing in my ears
You've got the chords
But you can't play anymore

Looking back on the last few days
The bruises will go and the scars will fade
I'l hold these moments close to my heart
And hope I learn from my mistakes

If we planned this out we'd be home by now
We're minutes apart but miles away
Gotta get on the road move on to somewhere new
We're minutes apart but miles away
Track Name: Living For The Weekend
I grow my hair so long to feel like i belong
And drink from dusk 'till dawn until the last songs sung
They say we're stuck between and that it's help we need
They say we're young and stupid a catastrophe

Back in the early days
Looking for trouble we got it
Never at home to stay
Living for the weekend

Kick start my lungs and heart because they just won't start
I've gotta check I'm alive before I fall apart
I wonder streets unheard often misunderstood
Well it's Friday night and we could rule the world

Back in the early days
Looking for trouble we got it
Never at home to stay
Living for the weekend
Track Name: Reverse
You think of yourself as a realist
But you just crave the feeling that belief gives
To the people around you
you hope that they'd think
You're strong enough to overcome anything

But you keep on watching your back
'Cause you can't let go of the past
Tried to cover up the cracks with a smile
And it worked for a while
But it could never last

Sometimes the honest mistake is the one that hurts most
And sometimes you try but you never come close
Track Name: Better Men Have Tried & Failed
This is the last song
That I'll write for love 'cause you've heard it all before
It's time to sing it out
Sing it loud to settle all these scores
Well my mind makes an enemy out of everyone who's close to me
It's not the first time i've nearly lost it all

Whoa
Whoa oh
I'm never gonna let you go
Whoa
Whoa oh
I'm never gonna let you go again

I wish that I could settle for happiness
But the truth is that sometimes I just crave a little mess
And the drama that rides upon my back it never rests
Picking apart my best intentions
until everyone gives up on me

Whoa
Whoa oh
I'm never gonna let you go
Whoa
Whoa oh
I'm never gonna let you go again
Track Name: Lullaby
Well the fireworks burnt out
And we've made no progress
I think I'll finally give in
To hopelessness
I gave it my best shot
It just wasn't good enough
I guess I'll never make you proud

Now this is for
My own satisfaction
So I can sleep
Without any distractions

And I wrote myself a lullaby
To remind myself it'll all work out fine
You've just gotta give it time

If I could trade places with anyone at all
I'd trade with an architect and I'd build myself a wall
To keep you out 'cause when you're around
I only end up hating myself
For letting you down
I guess I'll never make you proud

Now this is for
My own satisfaction
So I can sleep
Without any distractions

And I wrote myself a lullaby
To remind myself it'll all work out fine
You've just gotta give it time


(But i'm still singing)
And I wrote myself a lullaby
To remind myself it'll all work out fine
You've just gotta give it time
Track Name: Growing Pains
I spent my worst nights with best friends
Lived for the weekend
Now everything I built it all breaks down
As each night gets longer
Each day gets harder
Now everything i built it all breaks down
And everyone I love has pushed me out

I spent another monday morning on an hour long drive
Through growing up and tough times
Then arrived at real life
See I really need a backup
In case the songs I write fall short
And don't mean anything to anyone at all

We used to talk about the future with high hopes
But now we're working dead end jobs and we're always broke

I thought by now we'd have it all figured out
And maybe I'd make a name for myself

I hit 20 like a brick wall
And didn't care at all
'Cause everyday I get older
I seem to get more cynical

We used to talk about the future with high hopes
But now we're working dead end jobs and we're always broke

I thought by now we'd have it all figured out
And maybe I'd make a name for myself

'This is all just growing pains' she says
And it takes a while to connect
With the world that exists beyond your bed
My youth is all I have left
