Track Name: Where Have You Been
i've been thinking for hours and i
haven't come up with a single solution for this
i've been digging up my past regrets and trying hard to convince myself
that i did my best
but i don't feel any better yet
i pushed my own needs aside for months on end,
and just allowed all the poison to fill my head and now
i gotta deal
with the consequences

all of the time i spent reciting lines
i had you all convinced that i was doing just fine
at least i thought i did
so i buried myself, thought that no one could tell
so i stayed underground, till my pride finally pulled me out
and said "where have you been?"
Track Name: Soon Enough
speaking of the big picture
i want you to be in it

cuz i can tell by your smile
that you’ll stay for a while
i don’t want you to leave
can you stay here with me?

and it feels so natural having you by my side
and i always feel more comfortable with your hand in mine
when you’re not around i feel so left out
you never seem to leave my thoughts

cuz i can tell by your smile
that you’ll stay for a while
i don’t want you to leave
can you stay here with me?

and i know
that you gotta go
yea, i know

soon enough we won’t have to be so far apart
...
soon enough we won't be so far.
Track Name: Clever Girl
lately, i've been thinking myself to death
and all i want is answers
lately, i've been worrying too much
and all i need is comfort
lately, you've been extra good
at drowning out the bad
lately, i've been realizing
just what a clever girl you are

what a clever girl you are
you read it in the stars
when my head is in the clouds
you always bring me right back down

babygirl you're in my world
and i feel, i feel like the universe
is coming down, come closer now
i want to hear your sweet heart beat
all in due time,
we'll be just fine

what a clever girl you are
you read it in the stars
when my head is in the clouds
you always bring me right back down
Track Name: Over The Phone
miles and miles of thruway roads
crumpled up dollars for the tolls
to make a seven hour drive
cuz this girl’s been keeping me alive
i swear i’ve memorized these roads
the familiarity calms my woes
but we’ve got weeks and weeks to go
so i just wanna let you know

i really don’t mind
being in the car all night
i hate being alone
and i can only talk for so long
over the phone

you said to keep pressing on
but all the time, it adds up
and i can almost smell your hair
i’d give anything just to be there

i really don’t mind
being in the car all night
i hate being alone
and i can only talk for so long
over the phone
Track Name: Alive
tell me every detail, i want to know
why you’re here, because i’m not used to this
i’m sorry if i’m acting strange, it’s been so long since
i have felt this safe.

open up my eyes
what have i been missing?
all this time i’ve spent looking down.
open up my eyes
i want to see what you see
i only ever wanted to feel alive.

i’ve forgotten what it feels like
to be myself.
always running, trying to catch up to
a train that will never leave.
i know that you said you’re not going anywhere
but i can’t stop this constant need to be aware
so please could you just

open up my eyes
what have i been missing?
all this time i’ve spent looking down.
open up my eyes
i want to see what you see
i only ever wanted to feel alive.
Track Name: Wishing Well
i never had the chance to know you,
but you've given me so much
memories and photographs remain,
stories of the lives you've touched
how can i ever know?
how can i be sure
that you'd be proud of me?

we never spoke much, but i know just what you meant
the love that you left behind is enough to make up for it
i can only pray that you'd think i'm a good man
if you were still here, you could say.

(you could say)

i wish that you could tell me what you think of what i'm doing
i wish that you could tell me stories about your life
i wish i could see that grin that was always on your face
and i wish i could have known you well
i wish that you could tell me what you think of what i'm doing
i wish that you could tell me stories about your life
i wish that you could see this grin that is always on my face
and i wish i could have known you well
Track Name: Oxygen
it always comes down to how we react
open fire, broken hearts attack
stoke the flames with our oxygen,
the smoke will pass soon so we can breath again

if we don't make it out alive,
be proud that you put up a fight
but if our hearts collide,
the end will justify the sleepless nights

we tried to climb out of this hole we dug for ourselves,
but the walls were much too steep.
so we lay here at the bottom,
no water left to wash our hands or feet.

if we don't make it out alive,
be proud that you put up a fight
but if our hearts collide,
the end will justify the sleepless nights
Track Name: Haunting
hey there
i haven’t seen you in a few years
how’re you doing, how’s the family?
do they even remember me?

and did you forget
all of the things that you said?
they still play through my fickle head
every single day.

no matter how hard
i ever try not to think about
the guilt that always seemed to come about
it always comes back

now i’m better off
but your words still seem to linger on
my friends all say that i should see someone
but all i want is to stop seeing you

it's haunting my brain
the guilt and the shame
it all feels the same
i thought i got away
Track Name: Keep Breathing
close your eyes and count ten
just try to focus on breathing
tell yourself that you’re ok
even if you don’t believe it
we’re all cheering you on
we know what’s on the line
just keep your feet on the ground
and keep your head in the clouds

two weeks is not as long as you think
just keep breathing deep, just keep breathing
two weeks will go by like a breeze
just try sleeping now, just try sleeping
Track Name: Save Face
if you’ve got all the answers
i’d love for you to share
but i’m not counting on you,
i think that’s only fair
i felt the weight on my shoulders
and now it’s like a phantom pain
i cut it off for my own good
but you think I’m the one to blame

and i guess that’s fine
you do what you have to do to sleep at night
and i guess that’s alright
you save face while it eats me up inside

i really can’t tell if i’m more angry or upset
i can’t see past this seething and regret
to think that i wasted so much of my life
buying into guilt that all turned out to be a lie

but i guess that’s fine
you do what you have to do to sleep at night
but i guess that’s alright
you save face while it eats me up inside
Track Name: Bones
poured out into the glass
the liquid fills the hole that was left
by things you could not grasp,
you’re hanging on to each breath like it’s your last

you’d trade your soul
for one night spent not alone
but who could blame you
when you thought it was the right thing to do

you hung on with trembling hands
trekking towards that ghost infested land
where you know your heart once found rest
but now the bones of your confidence are all that’s left

you’re searching for a place
where you feel safe
but you’re not alone
and we’re all begging you to just put down the phone
