Track Name: New Beginnings
This is just a new beginning where everything I’ve been has left me I took the time to write this down, why don’t you just hear me out

This is just the way I’m feeling when everything I’ve learned has changed me I took the time to write this down, why don’t you just hear me out
Track Name: 49 Stow
Have you ever just packed everything you own and left somewhere You’ve known for so long and traded it in for the unknown
Three hours away from home where you’re a stranger in a strange place And not used to such a slow pace, so this is why

I’ve seen the seasons change in this city for far too long That its time to find where I belong

Find where I belong

This apartment on Stow Ave, two dead end jobs and this band Now make up who I am and who I’ve always tried to be
It might not seem that perfect, but it all serves one purpose
To ensure I do what I love cause this life fits like a glove

I’ve seen the seasons change in this city for far too long
That its time to find where I belong
As the seasons change from winter to spring, I know my life will begin to change as I write this down on a new page

Through all the ups and downs, I still love this town I’ll keep my head held high, this song will tell you why
Through all the good and bad, we’ll drink to the times we’ve had So keep your glasses raised, all dogs will have their day

Through all the ups and downs, I still love this town I’ll keep my head held high, this song will tell you why
Through all the good and bad, we’ll drink to the times we’ve had So keep your glasses raised, all dogs will have their day
Track Name: Myrtle Ave
Let’s Go

Stuck in this worn out basement with a window without a view
I wouldn’t trade the world for anything when I’m with all of you
Playing these songs about the past few months of my short life You always had a vision of changing the world but just lost sight

So this is me with my heart out on my sleeve for all of you to see Not in it for the fortune or the fame, but the feeling it starts inside Our hearts will never skip a beat or ever admit a true defeat
One day we might see eye to eye but if not I’ll say goodbye

Twenty-two with no direction or anything better to do
When we look back on what we’ve done, we know we’ve paid our dues Driving down this highway without a permanent destination
Wouldn’t have it any other way, there is no question

So this is me with my heart out on my sleeve for all of you to see Not in it for the fortune or the fame, but the feeling it starts inside Our hearts will never skip a beat or ever admit a true defeat
One day we might see eye to eye but if not I’ll say goodbye

I’d rather put a bullet to my head than know my dreams were dead All washed up on shore leaving me wanting more
I’d rather put a bullet to my head than know my dreams were dead All washed up on shore leaving me wanting more

So this is me with my heart out on my sleeve for all of you to see Not in it for the fortune or the fame, but the feeling it starts inside Our hearts will never skip a beat or ever admit a true defeat
One day we might see eye to eye but if not I’ll say goodbye

Our hearts will never skip a beat or ever admit a true defeat One day we might see eye to eye but if not I’ll say goodbye
Track Name: Worth My Time
So here we go
To the change in tide in my life with you by my side
Since day one you’ve been there for me through everything
And now, we spend our days together watching TV on our couch at Stow The street outside our house after all finally feels like a home

This is me taking yet another chance with my life So please don’t let me down this time

From the day we said hello to the day we say goodbye
I wanted to let you know that you were always worth my time And if and when we’re ever to go both our separate ways
I know no matter what I’ll find my way back to you someday I’ll find my way back to you someday

It’s hard to keep my head up when video games
And How I Met Your Mother are the only things keeping me sane But you make it so easy to put a smile back on my face
You do it so casually and with nothing short of grace

This is me taking yet another chance with my life I hope you won’t let me down this time

From the day we said hello to the day we say goodbye
I wanted to let you know that you were always worth my time
And if and when we’re ever to go both our separate ways
I know no matter what I’ll find my way back to you someday
I’ll find my way back to you someday, I’ll find my way back to you someday

From the day that we said hello to the day we say goodbye
I wanted to let you know that you were always worth my time
Track Name: Three Years
You said to me ever so softly once you’re afraid that I might lose touch But I just wanted to let you know that I will never give up

So this is how the story goes, the side that nobody knows
Given up so much these past few years (And it never seems enough)
Broken bonds of friendship and of love just fall to the wayside of an always smoking gun

(An always smoking gun)

And this is me spilling my guts on this paper for everyone to see
What living like this does, what living like this does to me
And this is me screaming my lungs out through this mic for everyone to hear What living like this leads me to fear

I miss the good ole days when nothing seemed to matter and life was but a maze That wound in and out
And looking past the pleasantry of truth, were these three years a waste of my youth I’ll never truly know

Three years of my life spent away from my home
Three years of my life I wasted all for you

Three years of my life spent away from home
Three years of my life I wasted all for you

Three years of my life spent away from my friends and family
Three years of my life wasted all for nothing
