Track Name: Three Years
It's been three years since you built a home in the past
'Cause that's where you've been living lately
(And all I can do is watch us go through this, time and time again)
So take time to see the flaws in what we've done
(Baby after everything, you're stuck on such a little thing)
'Cause as of late, I really hate what we've become

Sing it out loud, but the words, they don't seem to fit
And I don't know where they go but this isn't it
And I've been staying up late thinking to myself
'Cause we've been digging this HOLE
And it's been taking its toll
All that I know
Is I don't wanna waste my life not wasting my time with you

It's been three years since I left you there in the past
But I've started to miss you like crazy
(Still all I can do is watch us go through this, time and time again)
So take time to see the flaws in what we've done
(Baby after everything, you're stuck on such a little thing)
Cause as of late, I really hate what we've become
Track Name: Sam and Dean
Let's not get sentimental, I'm just looking out for you
It can't be healthy wasting all your time in your room
(Seriously, do you ever get out?)
So put that black dress on, I'm sure you're quite the sight
Instead of watching Supernatural almost every night

Won't you come downstairs
Let me take you there
(Sam and Dean aren't going anywhere)

You need to learn to let go sometimes
You'd love yourself if you would be so kind
Don't need to worry about wrong or right, tonight
You're gonna have a good time

Let's not get temperamental
I know you're stressing out
Midterms and books piled high
Professors on about
how you have to study hard if you want an A
But I hear C's get degrees
With some time to play.

Don't wanna hear about the things
You say you gotta do
Let's stay out til you wonder what's come over you
I think it's safe to say

You need to learn to let go sometimes
You'd love yourself if you would be so kind
Don't need to worry about wrong or right, tonight
You're gonna have a good time
You need to learn to let go sometimes
Just take a breath, you know we'll be just fine
Don't need to worry about wrong or right, tonight
You're gonna have a good time
Track Name: Stage Dives & Pick Slides
I was the kid with the broken guitar
Guaranteed not to get too far but look at me now (I figured it out), I'm doing alright
I remember when I couldn't play, couldn't sing
Just a kid who was locked inside his room screaming "all the small things"
Looking back on the start we've come so far now

I just wanna scream, at the top of my lungs
Make this crowd jump, till their legs go numb
Make this feeling last forever, this feeling last forever
I know it seems like I might be living in the past, it's not that
I just wanna make this feeling last forever, this feeling last forever and never let go

I can hear the people calling "play one more"
Gotta keep from stalling out
I've never been on a roll like the one that I'm on right now
We'll play the same songs in a different city
Backstage and my head's still spinning
Plug me in, turn me up, the show.must.go on and on and on

I just wanna scream, at the top of my lungs
Make this crowd jump, till their legs go numb
Make this feeling last forever, this feeling last forever
I know it seems like I might be living in the past, it's not that
I just wanna make this feeling last forever, this feeling last forever and never let go
Track Name: Do You Even Hear Yourself? (Feat. Maggie Schneider)
We've been sinking for a while now
And there's a storm brewing overhead
With the waves and strikes of lightning, in the form of words you said
Now we're caught in the middle of nowhere
Just looking miles ahead at all the floods we caused

What little we had just sank below
Now we do our best to stay afloat

I spend most my nights wasting breath on you
And you spend all your days trying to hide the truth
And do you even hear yourself when you say
That we'll be fine
And on and on we go
We'll work it out another day
Let's take a moment of silence
And watch us fade away

In the winter, we were bitter
From the cold that was our love
We were burnt out
So you left town
But nothing was good enough
When your dreams just leave you broken
And life starts getting rough
Wishing for better days

We lost the spark that we came to know
But what hurts most is letting go

I spend most my nights wasting breath on you
And you spend all your days trying to hide the truth
And do you even hear yourself when you say
That we'll be fine
And on and on it goes
We'll work it out another day
Let's take a moment of silence
And watch us fade away

And nothing ever really is what it seems
And the hardest part about it is coming clean
You tell me that you really wanna work this out
It's just another reason to let me

Down, down, again
You only let me x4
Track Name: Worse For Wear
You say I set your heart on fire
And that the need is dire
I don't know what that means anymore
You take it all for granted
But look at where you landed
Do you think your words do any good anymore?

Say what you want and watch it all come down, all come down, all come down x2

I don't think you want it
I don't think it's there
Babe your heart's not in it
Whoa oh oh oh
I don't think you want it
I don't think it's there
Babe your heart's not in it
Your love is worse for wear

I say that I need some space
But what a waste
Cause you had such a pretty face
I can't wait any longer
Cause any longer
And I'd just be making a fool of myself

Say what you want and watch it all come down, all come down, all come down x2

I don't think you want it
I don't think it's there
Babe your heart's not in it
Whoa oh oh oh
I don't think you want it
I don't think it's there
Babe your heart's not in it
Your love is worse for wear

We're out of touch
You're out of line
And I don't think it'll work itself out this time
There's not much left
And nothing's right
Cause I lost you
And you lost your mind
So take a breath and then breathe me out
Take a hit but you're coming down
You say you need me
But I don't think that I need you now
You say you need me in your life
Laying next to you every night
But I'm moving on
I'm letting go
And I think you know
You'll be just fine

I don't think you want it
I don't think it's there
Babe your heart's not in it
Whoa oh oh oh
I don't think you want it
I don't think it's there
Babe your heart's not in it
Your love is worse for wear
Track Name: Always Been You
I toss and turn at night when I think of you
I try to drown you out but it's just no use
In trying to kill the voice that's in my head
You're gone but you still haunt me
That's when the memories come rushing in
The pain from all the words I never said
To you and now I live my life with only regret

Now I never really sleep because I'm out too late
And what's another drink when I lost count at eight?
Still trying to tell myself that it'll be okay
But if there's one thing I do
It's hope you knew
It's always been you

I keep the TV on when I lay in bed
To try and dim the noise that's always in my head
They say people never change
You'll always be that same

Girl who danced around with just my T-shirt on
Off-key, but doesn't matter, it's her favorite song
I'll see you somewhere after all of this gone
But if there's one thing I do
It's hope you knew
It's always been you

When I close my eyes
I see you
The ICU is crowded with people
And I'm begging you it's not your time

When I close my eyes
I see you
The ICU is crowded with people
And I'm begging you it's not your time to sleep
Tell me can you hear me?
Track Name: Atlanta
Let's face it, Atlanta, I'm gone tonight
But you'll always be the place that I call home
And I'd love to stay but taking chances and chasing dreams is all I'm good for

All I wanna do tonight is get up and go
When you're stuck for so long, in the one place you know
And all this sitting still is killing me, can you come and put me out of my misery, don't you know? We're not set in stone

So I'll grab the keys, close the door
and go

Let's face it, Atlanta, I'm gone tonight
But you'll always be the place that I call home
And I'd love to stay but taking chances and chasing dreams is all I'm good for

And all I wanna do tonight is get up and go
When the same street signs and skylines are all that I know
And all this sitting still is killing me can you come and put me out of my misery, don't you know?
We're not set in stone
Track Name: Just Another Stranger
You hover so close
And you know that I can't breathe
Taking me for granted
Thinking I won't leave
You should know
That things will be different
I'm gonna be different

This time around
(I'm letting you go)
This time around
(I'm better alone)
Without a doubt, this time around

Cause the fire's burning out
And the world is coming down
And the spark is all but gone
And we've been fighting for way too long
So I'm telling you now
I'm doing you a favor
From here on out
You're just another stranger to me
You're just another stranger to me

Take another shot
Take your "whole day" out on me
I'll be the man you make me out to be
Self obsessed, while lying through my teeth
So go ahead, say what you want
I've heard it all before
We've been through this before

Cause the fire's burning out
And the world is coming down
And the spark is all but gone
And we've been fighting for way too long
So I'm telling you now
I'm doing you a favor
From here on out
You're just another stranger to me
You're just another stranger to me

Just another stranger
You're just another stranger to me (x1000000)

Whoa whoa oh oh
(Until you get bored and turn off song)

(Never listen to TEA again)
Track Name: Awake
He's spent the last few years fighting a war inside his head
Cause the monsters there are darker than the ones under his bed
The pills, the broken glass of whiskey on the floor
Can't replace what wasn't there before

He'll cast a smile or two like "everything's okay"
But there's so much more he needs to say

But please don't call the doctors cause he hasn't had enough
Of the senseless voice inside his head
screaming "you should just give up"
Now he's looking up and walking out to face the demons of the day
Yeah the nightmares can't scare him if he's awake

It's getting hard to keep his head above the waves
And the lonely nights are turning into longer days
Cause the sticks and stones
will break his bones
and he can't find his way back home
He'll close his eyes and drift away

And I know it's hard to hide the scars on skin that's paper thin
They try to help but he won't let them in

But please don't call the doctors cause he hasn't had enough
Of the senseless voice inside his head screaming "you should just give up"
Now he's looking up and walking out to face the demons of the day
Yeah the nightmares can't scare him if he's awake

When the clouds are forming and the sky is storming and his hope is washed away, He's trapped alone in his world where it's always pouring rain x2
Track Name: Take Two
TAKE TWO

"Come inside," she calls out to the porch,
"Were you there all night?"
He opens the door and says
"I haven't slept, hardly slept at all."
All I can think of are the words we said
The tears and the screaming and the scars they left
We're so far from healing
And the night's still repeating in my head

Can we take two?
Try and break through
These walls of unforgiving
These lies that we've been living
Or watch us fade to grey

Speak your mind
Cause I know I never listen when I'm caught up in thinking I'm right
I won't slam the door
So don't roll your eyes
We're worth fighting for
Can we stop for once and breathe?
This is not the end if we don't want it to be
Give me one reason to stay
Track Name: Wish You Well
Wasting my night
Staying up, staring at the sky
Wondering if we'll be happy
In another life
Cause I get the feeling it won't be this one
(Won't be this one)

And they tell me move on, get a grip
But I'll take my time
Take a trip to the bar
It's karaoke night
Where I'll sing all the songs that we used to dance to

But I don't hate you
I don't blame you
For this

I understand that you can't stay
And I've said all that I can say
I hoped I could keep you here
Always smiling, always near
I understand you had to go
But I just wanted you to know
That I still love you and I miss you and I wish you well

And you know that I can't stay here
Wait here, forever for you,
I've got things to do
But maybe we can meet back up
In a few years
Just grab a few beers and talk

And I'll try to stop myself from falling
And i'll tell my friends to stop me from calling you up
To see how you're doing
I hope that you're doing okay
(Are you doing okay?)

And I don't hate you
I don't blame you for this

I understand that you can't stay
And I've said all that I can to say
I hoped I could keep you here
Always smiling always near
I understand you had to go
But I just wanted you to know
That I still love you and I miss you and I wish you well

So I guess this is the last song
So I guess this is the last song
So I guess this is the last song
About me and you (x3)

Even though I love you and I miss you, I still wish you well
