Track Name: Happiness
Happiness is what I had
But I saw it crash inside of a photograph
And I don’t mind, wasting time
As long as you keep me here by your side
My only regret, one last defense
Oh and I confess I’ve been a fool I guess
Happiness is what I had
But I saw it crash inside of a photograph

The only thing I ever need
Is you here lying next to me
The only thing I ever knew
Is that I was supposed to be with you
I’ll whisper than I’ll hold you close
Oh dear I will love you ‘til the day I’m old
The only thing I ever need is you
‘Cause you’re my happiness

Happiness is what I had
But I saw it crash inside of an hourglass
No I don’t mind, wasting time
As long as you keep me here by your side

The only thing I ever need
Is you here lying next to me
The only thing I ever knew
Is that I was supposed to be with you
I’ll whisper than I’ll hold you close
Oh dear I will love you ‘til the day I’m old
The only thing I ever need is you
‘Cause you’re my happiness

Oh love hold on...

The only thing I ever need
Is you here lying next to me
The only thing I ever knew
Is that I was supposed to be with you
I’ll whisper than I’ll hold you close
Oh dear I will love you ‘til the day I’m old
The only thing I ever need is you
‘Cause you’re my happiness…
Track Name: You Wear Me Out
This is for the breakdown,
Every time you threw my heart around.
Oh yeah you chew me up and spit me out.
Honey this is for the breakdown.

The way you come and go as you please
Leave me down here beggin on my knees. 414.02.03
Can’t figure out what you’ve got up your sleeve.
But it seems you’ve got it in for me.

You wear me out
You wear me out
You wear me out
Yeah you wear me out

There was a time when I thought I knew
What it really meant to be a fool
But it turns out I didn’t have a clue
‘Cause I lost myself when I found you.

You wear me out
You wear me out
You wear me out
Yeah you wear me out

I didn’t run ‘cause I didn’t see you coming
You never know until it’s too late
I should have seen that for me you were gunning
I was so blind…

You wear me out
Yeah you wear me out

You wear me out
You wear me out
You wear me out
Yeah you wear me out

This is for the breakdown,
Every time you threw my heart around
Oh and you chew me up and spit me out
So honey this is for the breakdown
This is for the breakdown
This is for the breakdown.
Track Name: Echoes
There’s trouble tonight,
‘Cause you’ve been on my mind.
And I’m paralyzed, by the thought of you still here.

It’s been a long long time,
But I can’t seem to hide,
From this fear inside,
That you’ve gone and disappeared.

I’ve been gettin’ high to sleep now,
‘Cause no matter what I do,
My worried mind, can’t escape, the echoes of you.

It’s so hard to fight,
This heartbreak compromise,
But we can’t rewind, so I guess I’ll just stay still.

I’ve been gettin’ high to sleep now,
‘Cause no matter what I do,
My worried mind, can’t escape, the echoes of you.

I’ve been gettin’ high to sleep now,
‘Cause no matter what I do,
My worried mind, can’t escape, the echoes of you.
Track Name: Tinman
I can’t remember, where I got lost
Turned around and my heart was gone.
Picked up the pieces and carried on,
Life is short and the road is long.

Nobody knows where we go for sure,
Had a drink and then had me one more.
‘Cause time is a sickness that we can not cure,
So what the hell are we waiting for?

I know I’ve got a lot to give,
I can’t give up, I can’t give in.
No I won’t let go, no I won’t let go.

I’ve got a fire, but it’s way to cold,
I’ve got a fear, inside of my soul,
Heavy heart and a head full of stones,
Too damn young to feel this old.
Too damn young to feel… this old.

No way to see how it will all unfold,
Win or lose that’s just the way that it goes
‘But your life is the best story that you’ve ever told,
And your story’s not over ‘til your book is closed.

I know I’ve got a lot to give,
I can’t give up, I can’t give in.
No I won’t let go, no I won’t let go.

I’ve got a fire, but it’s way to cold,
I’ve got a fear, inside of my soul,
Heavy heart and a head full of stones,
Too damn young to feel this old.
Too damn young to feel… this old.

I know I’ve got a lot to give, I can’t give up, I can’t give in.
I’m weightless and I feel as if, I’m a tiger in a lions den,
The way we were, they way you’d taste, I loved it when you’d kiss my face.
Still I won’t let go, no I won’t let go.

I’ve got a fire, but it’s way to cold,
I’ve got a fear, inside of my soul,
Heavy heart and a head full of stones,
Too damn young to feel this old.
Too damn young to feel… this old.
Track Name: Myth
Over and over,
We do it again
Drink ‘til we’re sober,
Then try to forget.

Another day older,
From a clock that won’t quit.
A piece of the puzzle,
That just doesn’t fit.

Wait it out, pretend that your dreaming.
Slow down, smile like you mean it.

What if our hearts just get lost in the end?
What if tomorrow, never begins?
Are we waiting on something, that might not exist.
What if happiness is just a myth?

Over and over,
We do it again.
Hold on to something
That we never had.

Another year colder,
And forced to admit.
That we are just soldiers
Of the war in our head.

Wait it out, pretend that your dreaming.
Slow down, smile like you mean it.

What if our hearts just get lost in the end?
What if tomorrow, never begins?
Are we waiting on something, that might not exist.
What if happiness is just a myth?

Give me a sign,
Tell me your mine.

What if our hearts just get lost in the end?
What if tomorrow, never begins?
Are we waiting on something, that might not exist?
What if happiness is just a myth?
Track Name: Lost
It’s hard to begin
Can’t find the words to explain’
Why we came to an end
And why it feels this way
We didn’t give up
There was nobody to blame
The directions of our hearts
Were just never the same…

Nothing was wrong
We just moved on
No fear in our hearts
And love on the tip of our tongues
We just got lost

It’s hard to begin
Can’t find the right words to say
How we came to an end
And why we drifted away
There was no darkness
No nobody to blame
The compass of our hearts
Just led us astray

Nothing was wrong
We just moved on
No fear in our hearts
And love on the tip of our tongues
We just got lost

And I will always remember
How you would say
That this love was forever and always
I will never surrender no I’ll wait
Cause for worse or for better we’re better together
Never say never someday
There’ll be no stormy whether just bright days
And for now or forever I’ll wait
‘Cause for worse or for better we’re better together

No nothing was wrong
We didn’t give up
No fear in our hearts
We just got lost
No we didn’t give up
Love was on the tip of our tongues
No nothing was wrong

We just got lost
We just got lost...
Track Name: Away From You
I used to believe you,
And all the lies that you were sayin’.
So diffused, I let you, leave my soul depreciated.
You turned the screws, and we came loose,
Now my heart is cold and vacant.
Broke and bruised, so misused,
Overwhelmed and underrated.

I need to get myself away from here.
I need to get myself away from you.

You like to pretend you,
Think that love is complicated.
So confused, I let you,
Leave me discombobulated.
We came unglued, and you withdrew,
Now my heart is worn and faded,
Black and blue, so abused,
Overlooked and underestimated.

I need to get myself away from here.
I need to get myself away from you.

Away from you.
Away from you.

You’re bad news and I refuse,
To let you leave me torn and jaded.
So the next few, lines for you,
Are overdue and understated.

I need to get myself away from here.
I need to get myself away from you.

Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Track Name: What If?
Well I’ve been waiting up all night,
We’ve got chemistry you can’t deny.
You’re a part of every word I write,
I don’t care I need you by my side.

Why do maybe’s mean so much?
We’re in too deep and out of touch,
And I love her but I hate us…

It could be me and you before the worst.
Ba da ba da ba da
I wish we could go back in reverse.
Ba da ba da ba da
Honey free me from this curse.
Ba da ba da ba da
What if I had met you first?
Ba da ba da ba da

I’m so damn tired but I can’t sleep,
‘Cause I need you lying next to me.
You’re a part of every song I sing,
Not just all I want, you’re all I need.

Why do maybe’s mean so much?
We’re in too deep and out of touch,
And I love her but I hate us…

It could be me and you before the worst.
Ba da ba da ba da
I wish we could go back in reverse.
Ba da ba da ba da
Honey free me from this curse.
Ba da ba da ba da
What if I had met you first?
Ba da ba da ba da

What if I, could’ve changed your mind
What if I, had gone left instead of right,
What if I, could go back in time,
What if you… what if you were mine.

It could be me and you before the worst.
I wish we could go back in reverse.
Honey free me from this curse.
What if I had met you first?

It could be me and you before the worst.
Ba da ba da ba da
I wish we could go back in reverse.
Ba da ba da ba da
Honey free me from this curse.
Ba da ba da ba da
What if I had met you first?
Ba da ba da ba da
Track Name: Damn
I've been walking in my shoes, 

Now I'm so damn tired. 

A bit alone a bit confused, 

From this love expired. 

Oh an ordinary you, 

Has got me tired. 

Up all night, I guess.

From the corner of my eye, 

I thought I saw you smiling. 

Was confused and compromised, 

'Cause I saw you crying. 

Oh you're everything I want, 

Guess I'll keep on trying...

Up all night, I guess.

Oh I'll be waiting up all night, 

Slow and steady wins the firefight...

If you can't see me now, I'm dying.

I'll be fine. I'll be fine…

I'll be fine. I'll be fine…

So I'm thinking in my head, 

That you're so damn lovely, 

All the words I never said, 

Never made you love me. 

Oh you're everything I want, 

But never could be... 

Up all night, I guess.

So I'll be waiting up all night, 

Slow and steady wins the firefight...

If you can't see me now, I'm dying.

I'll be fine. I'll be fine... 

I'll be fine. I'll be fine…
Track Name: Still
I hold on to the memory,

Of a love that’s come and gone.

Scared that you might forget me,

And wondering if you’ve moved on.

So used to falling so slowly,

But for you I fell so hard.

Dreaming of all that we could be,

I can’t let you go even though you are gone.

Still I want you to know

That I’ll love you forever, 

Or the day I grow cold.

Still I remember those words,

Could never forget the hurt,

But I love you still.

I know that I made you tired,

And regret that we didn’t try... 

But now that we’ve lost the fire,

At least I can say that you used to be mine.

Still I want you to know

That I’ll love you forever, 

Or the day I grow cold.

Still I remember those words,

Could never forget the hurt,

But I love you still...

And I never want to forget,

The way you looked at me.

But I just can’t lay our love to rest,

Even though we could never be.

And I never want to forget...

Still I want you to know

That I’ll love you forever,

Or the day I grow cold.

Still I remember those words... 

Could never forget the hurt,

But I love you still...

Oh I love you still.
Track Name: Take It All Away
I’ve done everything
And held on just hoping
That you could see this through until the end.

But lately the words you’ve said
Keep twisting over my head
And your stare seems so different.

If you go, take it all away
I won’t be down here on my knees
Begging you to stay

I won’t be waiting
And wishing on
Things I’ll never change
So if you go
Take it all away.

I tried to forget
The way you looked when we first met
And how it felt when we were at our best
But since then all I can
Is broken hearted apathy
You could be the end of me

If you go, take it all away
I won’t be down here on my knees
Begging you to stay

I won’t be waiting
And wishing on
Things I’ll never change
So if you go
Take it all away.

Didn’t I try to make it work?
Didn’t you think it’s worth the hurt?
Maybe I underestimated the warning signs.
Oh didn’t I give you all I had?
Didn’t you say please take it back?
Maybe I over-complicated
Those three words… and what we were.

If you go, take it all away
I won’t be down here on my knees
Begging you to stay

I won’t be waiting
And wishing on
Things I’ll never change
So if you go
Take it all away.
Track Name: Wait and See
Sometimes life 'aint the way that you planned, 

But it's never too late to start over again. 

No it's never too late to start again. 

And it's hard not to feel like you're falling apart, 

And you can't see the light, 

'Cause you're lost in the dark. 

But every fire starts with just one spark.

Find a penny and pick it up, 

Live your life in a paper cup. 

You've got to hold the moments, 

And never let them fade. 

Find someone and fall in love, 

Give them all that you have got. 

That's all you need... 

Just wait and see.

Sometimes tomorrow might feel like the end, 

But it's never too late to start over again. 

No it's never too late to change it all. 

And it's hard not to wonder about what's up above, 

When we look at the stars, do they look back at us? 

Or are we too far gone?

Find a penny and pick it up, 

Live your life in a paper cup. 

You've got to hold the moments, 

And never let them fade. 

Find someone and fall in love, 

Give them all that you have got. 

That's all you need... 

Just wait and see.

Oh I'm gonna love you, always. 

And I'm gonna hold you, always. 

Yeah I'm gonna love you, always. 

And I'm gonna kiss you…

Find a penny and pick it up, 

Live your life in a paper cup. 

You've got to hold the moments, 

And never let them fade. 

Find someone and fall in love, 

Give them all that you have got. 

That's all you need... 

Just wait and see.

Don’t you worry about a thing…
No don’t you worry about a thing.
Track Name: Sometimes
I don’t even think
That you could understand
The way it feels without you
You slipped right through my hands
Now I’m alone and dreaming
And sinking in the sand
And it hurts sometimes

And I still feel your heartbeat
Like you’re lying in my bed
Like I never said the words
That I wish I’d never said
I’m alone in darkness,
And trapped inside my head
And it hurts sometimes

‘Cause sometimes we win
Sometimes we lose
Sometimes we are broken
Battered and bruised
Sometimes we hate
The life that we choose
Sometimes we win
Sometimes we lost

The patterns on these walls
I can see them all too well
‘Cause I’ve been staring at the ceiling
For so long that I can’t tell
I’m alone and drowning
I’m wondering where we fell
And it hurts sometimes

‘Cause sometimes we win
Sometimes we lose
Sometimes we are broken
Battered and bruised
Sometimes it’s fate
And sometimes we choose
Sometimes we win
Sometimes we lose

I still feel your heartbeat
Like you’re lying in my bed...
