Track Name: Forget The Past
I’ll say it once, as a matter of fact, I’ll say it once again
You make me feel like I’m dead and gone, and this cycle never ends
I’m caught in a landslide, you’re a natural disaster
Everyone always said we would live happily ever after

So forget the past, new memories are built to last
We’ll have the time of our lives as we look to the sky
So forget the past, don’t let your life move too fast
This flame will never die with our poor attempts to fly

Night after lonely night, I lay in this bed
And think of all the ways to say that these feelings aren’t dead
But I know it’s not alright to go on with this hoax
You’re a faceless joke, nothing more than a ghost
That tells me to be a better man, always giving my hand
Go back to where it all began so to not fuck up again
There’ll never be a second chance, one last endless yearning glance,
And no more time for you and me to have this last dance

So forget the past, new memories are built to last
We’ll have the time of our lives as we look to the sky
So forget the past, don’t let your life move too fast
This flame will never die with our poor attempts to fly

So forget the past, new memories are built to last
We’ll have the time of our lives as we look to the sky
So forget the past, don’t let your life move too fast
This flame will never die with our poor attempts to fly

So forget the past, new memories are built to last
We’ll have the time of our lives as we look to the sky
So forget the past, don’t let your life move too fast
This flame will never die with our poor attempts to fly
Track Name: Who You Used To Be
Late night drive with so much on my mind
I didn’t ever think this would burn out like it did last time
But you won’t change, you’re stuck in all your stupid ways
You’ll run away but your problems still stay

This is what has come between us
You nor I could have foreseen this
This mess you made will fade away
To a hollow shell of who you used to be

You’ve left yourself stranded, wallowing in self-pity
You’ve managed to burn every bridge left in this god damn city
You play the victim in this life you have created
And when you come crawling back we won’t pick up the pieces

This is what has come between us
You nor I could have foreseen this
This mess you made will fade away
To a hollow shell of who you used to be
To a hollow shell of who you used to be
Who you used to be

Is this what it comes to
Your true colors bleed through
There’s nothing left to do but show I'm through with you
Is this what it comes to
Your true colors bleed through
There’s nothing left to do but show I'm through with you

Through with you

This is what has come between us
You nor I could have foreseen this
This mess you made will fade away
To a hollow shell of who you used to be
To a hollow shell of who you used to be
Who you used to be

But you won’t change, you’re stuck in all your stupid ways
You’ll run away but your problems still find a way to stay
You play the victim in this life you have created
And when you come crawling back we won’t pick up the pieces
Track Name: If You Ain't First, You're Last
This is it and the time has come again
It's come to the point when we’re more than just close friends
This ain’t fair and to think you wanna be shared
But that’s not how this kind of thing works out in the end (Works out in the end)

So I’ll take this shot and hope I’m not out of ammo
To prepare for when we got caught

In this endless game we play, its tough to take first place
When the odds are against every word you say but I know it's okay
You told me you love me never, but I think I know you better
In the end, your mind just changes like the weather

Changes like the weather

From the top on a topic we know we can’t drop
We should have known that these feelings just wouldn’t stop
It comes to this, it was more than just that one kiss
When you take the time to make the climb, I know we’ll be just fine (Be just fine)

So I’ll take this shot and hope I’m not out of ammo
To prepare for when we got caught

In this endless game we play, its tough to take first place
When the odds are against every word you say but I know it's okay
You told me you love me never, but I think I know you better
In the end, your mind just changes like the weather
What it all comes down to, is this matter of me and you
There’s only one thing left to do, but choose and you know it’s true
You told me you love me never, but I think I know you better
In the end, your mind just changes like the weather

In this endless game we play, its tough to take first place
When the odds are against every word you say but I know it's okay
You told me you love me never, but I think I know you better
In the end, your mind just changes like the weather

Yeah
Track Name: Tiny Bandages
Will anyone ever know how it feels when this world doesn't feel real
And these tiny bandages cover the wounds that don’t ever seem to heal

So here it goes, I’m coming clean this time and I hope it shows
It’s been awhile and I can’t believe how fast time seems to go
Let’s take a dive, down to where our insecurities go to hide
These feelings show that all of us in the end are afraid to die

The floor falls out from under me as I toss under thin cold sheets
Just look around and you’ll see how the outlook on life is way too bleak
Everyday is a new day and there’ll be color in a world painted gray
Just close your eyes and focus on all these words that I have to say

There's nothing wrong, something new is always bound to come along
There’ll never be more a reason for me to walk straight out the door
I won’t ask anymore cuz I know the true reason for this war
It won’t take long but feelings of doubt will hopefully soon be gone

The floor falls out from under me as I toss under thin cold sheets
Just look around and you’ll see how the outlook on life is way too bleak
Everyday is a new day and there’ll be color in a world painted gray
Just close your eyes and focus on all these words that I have to say

Will anyone ever know how it feels when this world doesn't feel real
And these tiny bandages cover the wounds that don’t ever seem to heal
Is this the start to something new or a shadow of what I’ve always known
The sun begins to shine through the clouds proving what everyone says is true

Will anyone ever know how it feels when this world doesn't feel real
And these tiny bandages cover the wounds that don’t ever seem to heal
Is this the start to something new or a shadow of what I’ve always known
The sun begins to shine through the clouds proving what everyone says is true
Track Name: Woodlawn
You were always the first to reach out your hand
You will always be my biggest fans
Even when you’re off in some distant land

The time has come to sing about all of you and what you’ve done

I remember the days spent out in Woodlawn
Where I knew that nothing could go wrong
You taught me lessons that will last lifelong

You showed me how to truly care
A feeling that my parents shared
The strength of love that will never be compared

The time has come to sing about all of you and what you’ve done

The day you left this world for another kind
Caused me so much pain that I could never describe
The effect you had on the man I’ve come to be
I’ll see you soon but we’ll have to wait and see

I recall all the summers spent your yard
There's one thing to know you’re not too far
These four roses etched down my arm

The time has come to sing about all of you and what you’ve done

The day you left this world for another kind
Caused me so much pain that I could never describe
The effect you had on the man I’ve come to be
I’ll see you soon but we'll have to wait and see
Track Name: Lost & Found
Where do I begin, do I go back to when we were just dumb kids, who didn't know what love is
Or to the second time when I wouldn't let things be just fine
Looking back at it now, shouldn't we have learned how or
Our feelings in the lost and found and I don't like how that sounds

Look at what's become, what's become of our memories
Anybody else, anybody feels empty
You're the only one, you're the only one for me
It shouldn't be too hard, shouldn't be too hard to see

Where this will end, I don't think we'll ever be just friends with the past in our heads
A cycle we always find ourselves in before we get to begin
Round and round and round we go, this song to show you're just a ghost
So don't forget to see my side, when I am not the one who hides

Look at what's become, what's become of our memories
Anybody else, anybody feels empty
You're the only one, you're the only one for me
It shouldn't be too hard, shouldn't be too hard to see

Look at what's become, what's become of our memories
Anybody else, anybody feels empty
You're the only one, you're the only one for me
It shouldn't be too hard, shouldn't be too hard to see

The time is now
Put aside your doubts
And don't let me down

Don't ask why
Just take the dive
And always know you’re mine

For the taking, look at all the life we’re wasting that’s letting these feelings fade
We’re frail and breaking, both violently shaking in the cold, and now I know I should’ve stayed

Look at what's become, what's become of our memories
Anybody else, anybody feels empty
You're the only one, you're the only one for me
It shouldn't be too hard, shouldn't be too hard to see now

You're mine for the taking, look at all the life we’re wasting that’s letting these feelings fade
We’re frail and breaking, both violently shaking in the cold, and now I know I should’ve stayed
