Track Name: Constellations
You painted a picture for me without a frame. Lost all the inspiration you never had anyways. Swimming in the ocean we take off our clothes. Boys who love boys in the summer. It's a beautiful day.
Counting constellations far from home. I want everything to do with you staring up at the heavens. Soon the fun is gone. Its another boring day. Missing all the friends that you never had anyways.
The sun holds above my head and ruins my clothes. How could something so invasive be so beautiful. Pink skies spill in your eyes and this feels like home. Should I ever let you know what it meant to me.
I don't really want you to go.
Track Name: No Hard Feelings
You left the place you called your home. Headed west then up the coast. You shut down and fake it and you never thought I'd make it. You're holding on.
I'm never coming over anymore. I never want to see you.
Give what you get, but it's never enough. Blame the world for your bad luck. And still you shut down and hate it and you never thought I'd make it. You're holding out for something you'll never have.
I'm never coming over anymore I never want to see you.
You can love someone but they don't have to love you back. You can love anyone but they don't have to love you back.
You reach your point when you're yelling at me and I already know that I don't want to be with you at all. I just want to go back home. I just want to be alone.
Track Name: So Predictable
Tell me what your thinking of.
Truth was never really there.
Why should she feel interested.
Something with no connection.
Fall through the worst part.
Kiss until there's nothing left.
I hope you find the love you need to live.
And it's everything I could never give.
It won't be mine.
You know best what's right for you.
So predictable but I can't help it.
Why should she feel interested.
Something with no connection.
Fall through the worst part.
Kiss until there's nothing left.
Tell me what you're thinking of.
So predictable but I can't help it.
Track Name: Feel Alone
You're the same as everyone. The pain you feel is nothing special. So come off it. Stuff your sorrows in a sack. Take a second and figure this out. Now I know you hate to be so ordinary. It's just what I think. It doesn't make a difference.
This is no way to live. The world will move on with or without you.
A lots changed since you fell out of love. You're losing friends and you hate yourself. You left home and you wish you were back to the time and place when you weren't always so sad.
You're not the only one who feels so alone. You're so concerned with all the people you don't see. But now it doesn't seem to me that you feel anything at all. It's just what I think it doesn't make a difference.
This is no way to live. The world can sleep fine at night without you.
A lots changed since you fell out of love. You're losing friends and you hate yourself. You left home and you wish you were back to the time and place when you weren't always so sad.
Slowly falling apart and you're crying in arms. Everybody hurts just like you do. Why does waking up have to be so hard. Why does it have to be so hard for you.
This is not where you thought you'd be.
This is not who you thought you'd be by now.
Track Name: Love Fades

Track Name: The Light is Out
Falling with the rain.
Caught in comfort.
Hard to see what's really going on.
Not happy like before.
Don't listen to the heart.
Standing in the backyard of the house.
Going through the motions.
Pretending to care.
It's hard to see what's really going on.
Don't feel the same.
Don't feel it anymore.
There's nothing really out there to pursue.
Can't accept this.
Don't listen to the heart.
Seeing things for what they really are.
Going through the motions.
Pretending to care.
It's hard to see what's really going on.
Release of breath in a whisper.
This distance is just too far.
The light is out between where we both are.
Track Name: Heartrending
Left it on the bottom shelf for you.
We both know you wanted it more.
Let me know when you're going to leave.
I'll be sleeping in the back room.
Move away for the summer.
And I broke all of my fingers.
Everything's alright.
Everything is wonderful.
What's it like this time of year for you.
Are you happy with the move.
Let me know how you're holding up.
I've been living in your old room.
Move away for the summer.
And I broke all of your fingers.
Everything's alright.
I don't think you really loved her.
Move away for the summer.
And I miss all of your fingers.
Everything's alright.
Everything is wonderful.
Track Name: Northwest
Sink in the deep end. Forced to wait.
Cannot recognize this mistake.
Ignore the friction. Talking confused.
Telling secrets. Crushing the truth.
Just Listen for the train to come. Set arrival 11:31.
And if you figure this out just let me know.
No wants to live their life alone.
Broken direction. Spoken neglect.
Double overhand knot around your neck.
Sick of the coffee. Waiting for you.
This is obvious. Timing confused.
Just Listen for the train to come. Arrival set 11:31.
And if you figure this out just Let me know.
No wants to live their life alone.
Am i picking up an attitude.
Slowly facing this to you.
Fake all the problems that you need.
To find a life in anything.
Let me live inside these lungs.
Only breathing in your blood.
But you said it you can't take it back.
As you miss the life you never had.
Just listen for the train to come. Arrival set 11:31.
And if you figure this out just let me know.
i don't want to live my life alone.
Track Name: Over the Phone
Drove her home in your car.
She had too much to drink.
Coordinate the losses in everything.
Could we please talk about it over the phone.
Killing ourselves just to avoid being alone.
It's overwhelming when you tell me you're leaving him.
Have you had enough, I think you've had enough of everything.
Glasses off, a foreign display.
Reading your eyes.
In the confused, parted the ways.
Kissed her goodbye.
Just can't forget the taste of what you said.
"What's the point of living when you're already dead."
It's overwhelming when you tell me you're leaving him.
Have you had enough, I think you've had enough of everything.
Have you found what's missing.
I'm headed home.
Let's just talk about it over the phone.
Track Name: Let You Down
Swallow your tongue. I've had enough.
Keeping honesty from me, well it's easy.
To shake the strength from all your bones.
It's all you care to know.
Losing all the friends that you thought you had is that what your feeling.
This always seems so insincere.
Can't say I ever really cared.
With no intentions of leaving now.
So you walk out, you go home.
So used to feeling miserable.
I just love to let you down.
Talking closely. It's over now.
Blaming me for everything.
I live to bring you down.
I just wasn't made for love.
Never wanted to help you out.
It must be wonderful to find a life in someone else.
This always seems so insincere.
Can't say I ever really cared.
With no intentions of leaving now.
So You walk out, you go home.
So used to feeling miserable.
I just love to let you down.
