Track Name: Sidelines
Sidelines

I hate letting people in
I can't begin to make these amends
'Cause I'm a constant disappointment

I've burnt bridges
I'll build walls up around my heart
This is a bright new start for me
(So you say this is not what I wanted
And in time you'll find exactly what you needed
And I'm here to tell you girl that I'm waiting on the sidelines)

I can't believe that I can't make these amends

Like a kid builds towns out of sand
I build my walls out of glass
Everyone can see through my best
So I'll keep burning bridges again

I can't believe that I can't make these amends

I've burnt bridges
I'll build walls up around my heart
This is a bright new start for me

(So you say this is not what I wanted
And in time you'll find exactly what you needed
And I'm here to tell you girl that I'm waiting on the sidelines)

I can't believe that I can't make these amends
Track Name: Crossroads
Crossroads

I meant every word I said
As you left me at a crossroad
With nothing more than notebooks and dried up pens
To express and confess
My views on this life and the sights I've seen

Worn out souls in the gravel
From wasted youth that had to gamble
All they were destined for
And I once heard time kills slowly
So I guess I'm headed out to Reno
Roll of the dice is all I need

Before you tie yourself in knots
(I hope you know I meant every word I said)
Take a rope that's long enough to guide you home
Before your tongue gets tied in knots
(I hope you know I meant every word I said)
Exploit your youth with a rope that's long enough
To guide you home

At my expense
I'm wasting breath
Telling you the lies you wanna hear
To your demise
I am the prize
I meant every word I said

Before you tie yourself in knots
(I hope you know I meant every word I said)
Take a rope that's long enough to guide you home
Before your tongue gets tied in knots
(I hope you know I meant every word I said)
Exploit your youth with a rope that's long enough
To guide you home

Woah, woah I hope you know I meant every word I said

I meant every word I said
As you left me at a crossroad
Track Name: Missing You
Missing You

Before the letdown I'd like to know
What it takes to see inside of you
(Inside of you)
I hate this side of you
Before the letdown I'd like to know
What it takes to see inside of you
I hate this side of you

We've made mistakes but that's okay
Well I've never liked perfection in any way
I've missed chances, swallowed my pride
I guess I'd like to know, how you feel inside

I'm so far away
So far away from home

Before the letdown I'd like to know
What it takes to see inside of you
(Inside of you)
I hate this side of you
Before the letdown I'd like to know
What it takes to see inside of you
I hate this side of you

We made mistakes and that's okay
I've let you down in so many ways
I wish I could make all this right
And leave your room without a fight

What would your day even feel like
Without a hint of blue
It's been a week since I've been gone and I've been missing you
What would your day even feel like
Without a hint of blue
It's been a week since I've been gone and I've been missing you

Before the letdown I'd like to know
What it takes to see inside of you
I hate this side of you
Before the letdown I'd like to know
What it takes to see inside of you
(Inside of you)
I hate this side of you
Track Name: Detour
Detour

I'm just a detour, the one that you avoided again
I know my sadness will never be yours to mend
Still I hate this damn street for the memories it holds
But I'm stuck here waiting
in these worn down clothes

I'll be your detour
(I will keep you as a memory)
You're just another line by my pen
All road signs pointing
To my dead end

I knew these sidewalks would never hold much comfort
And now I'm left to wonder why
Your arms didn't either
Life was never meant to be just right
Things were probably the worse for us tonight
(I will keep you as a memory)
Life was never meant to be just right
But things were probably...
(It's the only thing you should be)

I'm just a detour, the one that you avoided again
I know my sadness will never be yours to mend
Still I hate this damn street for the memories it holds
But I'm stuck here waiting
in these worn down clothes

I'll be your detour
(I will keep you as a memory)
You're just another line by my pen
All road signs pointing
To my dead end

I'll keep you as a memory
And that's the only thing you should be
You know that time can't help us now
And I'll be waiting on you somehow

I miss the times in Thousand Oaks
And I can never thank you enough, for what you did for me
How you helped me see so clearly
Still I just can't believe that I'm just a detour…

...the one that you avoided again
I know my sadness will never be yours to mend
Still I hate this damn street for the memories it holds
But I'm stuck here waiting
In these worn down clothes

I'll be your detour
You're just another line by my pen
All road signs pointing
To my dead end
Track Name: Made My Bed
Made My Bed

I made my bed up on the sidewalk
I see you laying in bed
Right where I left you
And I'm about to do things
You know that I have to

My fists are shaking and my palms have start to sweat
My tongue is tied 'cause I don't wanna feel regret
My fists are black and blue
I'm getting over you
My fists are black and blue
I'm getting over you now

So when the night closes in
Will the sky turn dark blue
You see me looking up from the sidewalk
I'm still thinking of you
So when the night closes in
Will the sky turn dark blue
You see me looking up from the sidewalk
I'm still thinking of you

My fists are black and blue
I'm getting over you now
(My fists are black and blue!)
My fists are shaking and my palms have start to sweat
My tongue is tied 'cause I don't wanna feel regret
My fists are black and blue
I'm getting over you

Walked into my bedroom for the last time
I made my bed with you inside
And that is right where I left you

So when the night closes in
Will the sky turn dark blue
You see me looking up from the sidewalk
I'm still thinking of you
So when the night closes in
Will the sky turn dark blue
You see me looking up from the sidewalk
I'm still thinking of you
I'm thinking of you
Track Name: Fall
Fall

I put my heart on a hook and line
For the last time I gave up my life
I gave myself to a broken town
Where the kids cared and never let me fall down
All I ever had, were these dark songs
And you came along, like the clouds cared only for you

Baby, baby tell me why I'm the first to fall
If it weren't for this town
I'd never met you at all
Its the kids who brought us here
And the life that I've made clear
In this foggy and broken town

I cast my heart in a pond of lies
For the first time, it was swallowed alive
I have this town to fall back on
And they stand by my side
They're the crutch for my life
All I ever had, were these dark songs
And you came along, like the clouds cared only for you

Baby, baby tell me why I'm the first to fall
If it weren't for this town
I'd never met you at all
Its the kids who brought us here
And the life that I've made clear
In this foggy and broken town

In this foggy town
I had no one
Now I have you

Its the kids who brought us here
And the life that I've made clear
In this foggy and broken town
Track Name: Lost Things
Lost Things

Can you begin to stage this act of lies
When all my trust is compromised
I'm getting over being sober
For the first time this week
I made up lies, to tell myself
So I can feel like someone else
I've been to hell and back
Hiding sorrow in some whiskey
And a beat up van
That breaks down on every highway
Can't stand a world that keeps on taking
Never giving, only receiving
I'm always giving, never receiving anything

I've lost the things I used to love
It took a while to feel the loss
I miss the life we had at fifteen
I hate the way I feel inside
Most of the time
I just want to be happy with my life

Can you begin to stage this act of lies
When all my trust is compromised
I'm getting over being sober
It's been 6 years and I still feel the loss
At age fifteen you can't have much
We lost our innocence lets not dispute that
You answered questions that I never should have had
I lost my rights to the place I call home
And can I finally stand on my own?

(Instrument break)

I've lost the things I used to love
It took a while to feel the loss
I miss the life we had at fifteen
I hate the way I feel inside
Most of the time
I just want to be happy with my life
I've lost the things I used to love
It took a while to feel the loss
I miss the life we had at fifteen
I hate the way I feel inside
Most of the time
I just want to be happy with my life
Track Name: Alone
Alone

I'll sit in my garage
Cold and alone
With you on the phone
I listen to the patter of the rain
Just to occupy my mind for this moment
I need you here

I'm taken back by you
It's something I never thought you could do
Am I heels over head
For a girl that can barely stand to hear my name
Please just tell me you will stay

I'll sit in my garage
Cold and alone
With you on the phone
I listen to the patter of the rain
Just to occupy my mind for this moment
I need you here

I'm taken back by you
It's something I never thought you could do
Am I heels over head
For a girl that can barely stand to hear my name
(I need you here, I need you here)
Please just tell me you will stay

Just leave a note
To say you'll be alone
For some time

I'm taken back by you
It's something I never thought you could do
Am I heels over head
For a girl that can barely stand to hear my name

Please just tell me you will stay
Track Name: Wilder
Wilder

Do you really want to keep the same routine
Can you believe that I've been doing this since eighteen
It's led me nowhere
This roads led nowhere

I've tread so lightly
On this road I've come to know
And I'm finding, there's not a single way out
My dad once told me, that I should keep my head on straight
I'm sorry that I didn't listen to you then
But I'm listening to you now

Do you really want to keep the same routine
Can you believe that I've been doing this since eighteen
It's led me nowhere
This roads led nowhere

Four odd years later
I've come to know
Nothing more than myself
But at times, it's hard to find
Even a glimpse
So just hold on, hold on
For your dearest life

I've tread so lightly
On this road I've come to know
And I'm finding, there's not a single way out
I miss the old days where I used to be okay
And sense made me and I made none
But that was days ago

Do you really want to keep the same routine
Can you believe that I've been doing this since eighteen
It's led me nowhere
This roads led nowhere

Goodbye old friend, I'm giving in
Track Name: Tunnels
Tunnels

I've come to terms with exactly how I feel
Just like you, I like my solitude
And it's gonna be a sleepless night
If we get over, we'll get older
We'll survive another year
If we get over, we'll get older

I've made my mind into something that I fear
I'm filled with frustration at the thought of being well
I'm driving people away, while making the same routine mistakes
I'm looking for a light at the end of the tunnel

I've come to terms with exactly how I feel
Just like you, I like my solitude
And it's gonna be a sleepless night
If we get over, we'll get older
We'll survive another year
If we get over, we'll get older

And was I this far gone a year ago
To know my downfall, was always coming
I'm better off sleeping alone
And was I this far gone a year ago
To know my downfall, was always coming
I'm better off sleeping alone
I just wanna be normal

I've come to terms with exactly how I feel
Just like you, I like my solitude
And it's gonna be a sleepless night
If we get over, we'll get older
We'll survive another year
If we get over, we'll get older

I feel out of place in my own skin
I put up walls to keep your thoughts from digging in
Your thoughts are digging in
Am I striving to be, someone that I'm not?

I've come to terms with exactly how I feel
Just like you, I like my solitude
And it's gonna be a sleepless night
If we get over, we'll get older
We'll survive another year
If we get over, we'll get older

And was I this far gone a year ago to know my downfall
(If we get over, we'll get older)
Was always coming
I'm better off sleeping alone
(If we get over, we'll get older)

I just wanna be normal
