Track Name: First Love
Oh my my, what’ve you got to say.
I’ve heard you cry in a million ways
It’s times like these where you are so fake,
Making up reasons just to bring out hate.

I know I can’t brag, I’ve been here before.
Loving you is beating a dead horse.
But wherever you are, I hope you’ll stay strong
You’ve taken my time, for far too long.

Why do we always seem to be, giving up on first love.
You never want to hear them speak, but you always call once a month.
I don’t want to be your friend, I don’t want this to end.
You’re screaming oh my my, oh my my, how did we fall apart?

It’s a pretty big world to be out there on your own,
You write me all the time but it still don’t feel like home.
Yeah, I’m done burning bridges, now tear them all down.
Don’t worry darling I’ll come around,
I’ve lied to the face of many men, broken the hearts of many friends.
Don’t say. . .
Don’t say I don’t want you.

Why do we always seem to be, giving up on first love.
You never want to hear them speak, but you always call once a month.
I don’t want to be your friend, I don’t want this to end.
You’re screaming oh my my, oh my my, how did we fall apart?


Oh my my, oh my. X4
Say you want me tonight, baby I could lose my life.
If I were to be caught, this could be the end of it all.
I know I’ve told some lies, I’ve cut off all of my ties.
Track Name: Let You Down
I don’t need to say bye, any more than I want to.
I don’t need to think twice, any more than I have to.

My skeletons they all come out, stomp out the demons, and nail them all down
Every word left unsaid, lays with the monsters under my bed.
With the monsters under my bed.

I don’t want to let you down, come on, come on, baby won’t you turn around.
Show me what you fear, what you hear about me, I’m not the kind of man I want to be.
Save yourself from all the stories that I made, can’t be the one, can’t be the one, to blame.
So maybe, baby please stay.
Baby please stay.

I should cut my ties and live my life, should I know where I’ll be here in ten years
Disappointment clouds my mind, I’ve lived with that for more than only three years.

My skeletons they all come out, stomp out the demons, and nail them all down
Every word left unsaid, lays with the monsters under my bed.
With the monsters under my bed.

I don’t want to let you down, come on, come on, baby won’t you turn around.
Show me what you fear, what you hear about me, I’m not the kind of man I want to be.
Save yourself from all the stories that I made, can’t be the one, can’t be the one, to blame.
So maybe, baby please stay.

A heavy heart will never take me far, if I wear it on my sleeve
Like a ball and a chain, it cripples me, it cripples me.

How it cripples me. X4
Track Name: See How Far
Tear me down, just to build me up, not much longer now, we’ll be stronger now.
You know I can’t stand, to see you like this, I’ll put in time if you make me a list.
My stories get a little bit older by the minute, can you see the pages turn, and can you feel the chapters’ burn as I lose my cool.
These days, start to feel the same, I should pull it all together, and stop calling out your name.

Time and time again, we will let this end,
just to see how far.
Just to see how far,
how far we can go.

My apologies and these promises can’t keep you here for long,
I’ve been in your shoes before, wanted to walk out that door, and shed my old skin.

These days, start to feel the same, I should pull it all together, and stop calling out your name.

Time and time again, we will let this end,
just to see how far.
Just to see how far,
how far we can go.

My luck has run out on me, you weren’t supposed to see this side of me tonight.
The darkest of times has come, it’s wearing me thin, and it goes so deep.
How am I so far, loving you like I should.
Loving you like I should x2

Time and time again, we will let this end,
just to see how far.
Just to see how far,
how far we can go.
Track Name: Why Am I
Come on I’ll take you home, leave here with me so you’re not alone.
Dodging cars, and switching lanes, praying no one ever takes this away.

Well I’m holding on to a secret, and losing sleep to keep it.
so my heart, stays intact.
But if your time is being wasted, and I’m becoming hated.
Then leave me, and don’t look back.

Why am I so uncomfortable, in being myself.
Why am I scared of losing you, and nothing else.
I’ve got one last chance to be honest,
and a lot more problems I can promise,
I used to fear being alone.

My only worry’s me and myself, what am I supposed to do
I don’t want anybody but you, I just want my time spent with you.
I don’t mind if, if I stay with you.

If I stay with you. . .

Why am I so uncomfortable, in being myself.
Why am I scared of losing you, and nothing else.
I’ve got one last chance to be honest,
and a lot more problems I can promise,
I used to fear being alone.

Why am I so uncomfortable, in being myself.
Why am I scared of losing you, and nothing else.
I’ve got one last chance to be honest,
and a lot more problems I can promise,
I used to fear being alone.

Being alone. . .
Track Name: Hold On Me
If every moment is a test then I've been failing all my life.

Now I've got to cheat for answers just to make it home tonight.

Well I should have known I should have been better to you.

Now I've got to make it some way in, don't you worry too.



Who are you, to judge me like that, now.

Who are you, to leave me locked out, now.



If my heart, and my mind, are what you crave.

And these hands are working for you babe.

Worry about more than just a change of wind.

Won't say what I'm thinking about, I'll be alright now.

Someone’s got a hold on me.

Someone's got a hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on me.

Someone's got a hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on me.

Someone's got a hold, got a hold, got a hold, got a hold on me.

Someone's got a hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on me.



If every night you want to see someone different.

Then baby what's the point, in being friendly.

If you love them leave them, if you need them then fight them.

Your trust is coming undone, these walls are arising.

Hold on to me, hold on to me, hold on to me.



Who are you, to judge me like that, now.

Who are you, to leave me locked out, now.



If my heart, and my mind, are what you crave.

And these hands are working for you babe.

Worry about more than just a change of wind.

Won't say what I'm thinking about, I'll be alright now.

Someone's got a hold on me.

Hold, hold, hold on me.

Hold, hold, hold on me

Hold, hold, hold on me
