Track Name: you know that you could
You know that you could- oh look a flower, how about i crush it and curse the ground that it grew upon. ive just felt this way every since the day i heard these words fly right out your mouth. "i do not love you i do not love you, i am a stranger to myself." so come and use me baby, because you know that you could. Ill love you more than i should. You got to have me, you got to have me and i guess you used me untill you got bored. i had to beg you to get the truth out, but now these words hurt me like a knife. "i do not love you i do not love you, i am a stranger to myself" so come and use me baby because you know that you could. ill love you more than you should. youll see where once a heart was there is nothing anymore. its gone, and there is no cure. Love is all i ever wanted in my life, its gone and you took it away from me. You love you lose guess thats just the way that it goes. but let my story be told.
Track Name: save yourself
save yourself- i had this dream the other day where i would smile and you would say that you were happy where you were. I had this theory all my life, the truth wont come out late at night, what happens in dreams, stays in them. Whats the story, howd i get so boring. Is it all my fault? is it all my fault. I had this dream the other day where i would smile and you would say you wanted nothing more than this. I had this theory all my life the truth wont come out late at night what happens in dreams, stays in them. Whats the story, howd i get so boring. Is it all my fault? your going to wake up one day soon and know you were wrong. So save yourself the trouble.
Track Name: lying, here
lying, here- lying here awake, staring out my window. im not happy, im not sad, because i am barely here. Im going through this alone. somewhere your awake, staring out your window. your not happy, your not sad because you are barely there.
Track Name: not there
not there- you need some time to figure out what your about. id say its just your way of pushing me out. so how about a few more years to just make up your mind. how about a lifetime to see why your going blind. i wonder if youll ever see what will become of me. i wonder how it feels to be lonely all your life, and cry yourself to sleep every night. Im not quite sure what it is your looking for, but so you know, i wont be there. i wonder if youll ever see what will become of me. i wonder how it feels to be lonely all your life and cry yourself to sleep every night. I hope i never know, and i wish you never did.
Track Name: evenings
evenings-now i remember, how the night felt. in each others arms, fading away for the night. all i could give you was all that i had, and these nights that was enough. running my fingers over your shoulders. evenings like these should last. my heart cant escape the past. leaving my life in peace, is what you could offer me. now i remember how your breath felt, on my neck. sending the shivers all through my body. all i could give you was all that you took, with a smile with all your heart. id lay awake at night watching you sleep. evenings like these should last.
Track Name: you should be with me
i wish youd be there-in the midst of the chatter, i need to get some air. my heart is scattered. i step out in the night sky, to try and clear my head. every laugh is a small lie without you to share it. these sunny summer days, the smile on your face feels so lost to me. These starry summer nights where nothings feeling right, you should be with me. i keep looking by the door, there is still a chance, that youll run through it once more. like a scene in the pictures am i a fool to hope, that you still remember, because i cant forget. these sunny summer days the smile on your face feels so lost to me. these starry summer nights where nothings feeling right, you should be with me. Oh i know that circumstances might have left you home. if it turns out that our romance is doomed and im alone.....
feelings never change
the sentiments the same
you should be with me. standing in the street, and staring at the concrete, you should be with me.
Track Name: memory loss
memory loss- riding along over oceans through storms and the thought just occurs to me. years will go by, thoughts of you will just die in the depths of my memory. please stay here right in my heart. keeping the letters makes my memory better but little things will disappear. laughs we had, eyelashes, uniforms and glasses that id rarely see you wear. please stay here right in my heart. please stay here right in my heart.
Track Name: nothings gonna last
nothings gonna last- bedside light help me make it through this night. no sleep is in my itinerary. ive lost my love. selfishness. thats the reason for this mess. the thoughts not lost, but knowing its a hopeless cause, when your afraid. nothing in the world is gonna make this better. nothing in the world is bringing us together. nothing in the world is gonna make this better. nothing in the world is bringing us together. nothings gonna last, and your just gonna wind up like me alone.
Track Name: eat something
eat something- ive seen your face, and its thinning out. ive seen your wrists and they're full of scars. i dont know what you need to hear, knowing you hold nothing dear. while you are wasting away, people care that you've lost your way. i guess you starve yourself because there is nothing inside you to fill?! i guess you cut yourself because its easy to destroy if its your will?! its only getting worse. its like your heart is cursed. you're not just killing you. you're killing me too. i guess you starve yourself because there is nothing inside you to fill
Track Name: seashell
seashell- i kept a seashell to recall, my memory of this beautiful night, where you and i just cant get it right. walking along the rocks and trying to maybe catch your eyes meet mine. but with your friends your occupied, so im just along for the ride. so i write your name out in the sand daydream of ways that i can make you smile. there you are lookin more beautiful than anyone ive ever seen. there you are just steps away from me, but theres miles in between our hearts. a cigarette retells my heart that our best moments not far gone. Ive never felt this way before, ill never feel this way again. i dont know whats left i can do, i keep getting caught staring at you. there you are, looking more beautiful than anyone ive every seen. there you are let me just once remember, the taste of your lips. there you are just steps away from me, but theres miles in between our hearts.
Track Name: we never met before
weve never met before- im not home you and you alone know where i am. im nowhere close my soul is like a ghost removed from me. im only found by the loving sounds from out of your mouth. i know the cost im gonna stay lost its a lonely world. im going on and knowing that your going on like we never met before. how am i to go to sleep when i know you dont think of me no more. it hurts my heart knowing were apart but that wont change. while i die slow you will always go like your not changed. i hate this mess i hate how ive regressed to a sad cynic. its not my way but every single day its getting so..... im going on and knowing that your going on like we never met before. how am i to go to sleep when i know you dont think of me no more. im going on, and knowing that.
