Track Name: All I Can Do
Take away the doubt in my mind
I rewrote the lines and everything's fine
My memory fails me, certainties fading
Have I lost my way?

Well I know I shouldn't think too much, but I feel I'm not enough to make you mine
I'm losing my mind just wasting time
When will I feel alright?

Well I know that everything's right, but I still lose sleep every night
I don't care if I lose my mind, I'm not leaving without you
I don't care if it's a waste of time, cause its all I can do
Track Name: What I Lost
You have no idea how much I choke on every lie you fucking spoke
Another day I'll wait and waste time hoping that the space will heal my mind like you say
"I'm OK" but it never seems that way
When your gone the absence stays too long

I always tell myself it's better if I take my time
My bones will heal someday, but first I'll need some peace of mind
To look back on what was, all the pain that you caused
Every time I move on it just feels I'm getting lost

You know it's true you'll find a better man
I lost another part of me
My heart was in your hands, but now it's gone
This all seems wrong
I'll spend another night and day searching for what I lost

There's only one thing I know in every crack of my bones
I couldn't find my own
I've been searching for home
Track Name: Better Off
Well I've been so afraid of losing you again that last time I left my feet stuck in the ground
What use am I now?

And I think about it everyday, all alone
And I know that I saw everything the wrong way

You know it's true, you're moving on
There's nothing I can do, you're better off
But it's cold in my bed and I can't get you out of my head
I wish that I was numb again
Changing pace, leaving space in all the walls I built in front of me
Well I know that you'd rather be gone

And I see the way you look in his eyes
Don't pretend, I can tell every time you lie
But I know that you will, and I'll say it once again
"When I'm gone and he's here, just remember who I am"

It's been a year and nothing's changed
It's been a year and I'm still the same
Track Name: Without You
I've always been hoping that I wouldn't change
My mind keeps on racing and everyday I lose my train of thought again
I trace my steps from where I've been

I've always been hoping that you would stay but now I just wish you were farther away from here.
I don't think I can take another day that I would waste by...

Losing sleep to search your mind, and empty was all I could find.
Another day I'll wait for you to realize I am better without you.

It seems the words out of your mouth were a lie
I know this because as time passes by I look back on the time we spent.
It never seemed too real I've just been...

The past is nothing what it seems
I turn around one day and see that I've been...
Track Name: Speechless
Sometimes it seems the days go by too fast
I get left behind, still in the past
Memories of you fade away
If only I could speak your name

I close my eyes and disappear
Erase my mind and lose all fear
Memories of you fade away
If only I could speak your name

I always tried my best and never wanted this
You always held me down and never were around
Track Name: Keep Myself Feat. Abbie Bosworth
I asked you please to stay
I told you I was on my way
And you say it's not the same
When everyday I hear you call his name when you're asleep
The dreams you have are yours to keep
And I've been so sick of lying
When everyday I'm trying keep myself together
I can't be this way forever

I've been finding a way to keep my feet off the ground and my head in the clouds
Did you ever you'd live to see tonight?
The past is done and I feel fine

You say that I had changed
The words I say just aren't the same
Did the love that you feel fade?
When everyday I see you staring deeper into space
Hoping that one day you'll find a new place and a new man
A different place where you can keep yourself together
You can't be this way forever

Can you keep yourself together?
Can I keep myself together?
Can we keep ourselves together?
We can't live this way forever
Track Name: Passing Days
I see you standing there watching me
And I realize I'm not who I want to be
But you pushed me away, and you asked me to stay
I couldn't make up my mind and wasted all my time

You said you'd always be here when I was down and alone
Now it seems the passing days are all I can call home
When memories linger on happy moments don't seem so long as they used to when our hearts were young

I lost my way again, slowly
And I realize I'm not who I want to be
But you pushed me away, and you asked me to stay
I couldn't make up my mind and wasted all my time

The thought of you makes all of my bones hurt
I won't ever see you again
I can't ever see you again
