Track Name: Feelings About Feelings
I wanna run away from all these memories
I gotta get away from everything that is chasing me
Because I never seem to face the things that are probably the reason why
I spend my time alone
I'm not imagining that we're separating
It's not a mystery, the secrets that you thought you'd keep
But you really knew that you weren't into me
But I was into you, I'm still into you

So tell me something I don't know, I'm getting tired of this shit
I pray to God every night, but sometimes I forget

I'm losing faith in you and I'm losing faith in us
These years gone by have brought out familiar feelings of mine and I hope
You'll acknowledge my progress, but it's not good enough for me
I know it's sad, I don't know when, I hope I'll grow up eventually

I guess it's better off this way, you probably won't miss me
It's not like everything was meant to be something
More than me, guess I'll never see self pity's not the way
That's for another day, I'm not doing this today

So tell me something I don't know, I'm getting tired of this shit
I pray to God every night, but sometimes I forget

I'm losing faith in you and I'm losing faith in us
These years gone by have brought out familiar feelings of mine and I hope
You'll acknowledge my progress, but it's not good enough for me
I know it's sad, I don't know when, I hope I'll grow up eventually

I tried
I tried to make you mine, but it didn't work
Now I'm trying to draw the line
You make it hard
We were sitting by the campfire, looking at the stars
You asked me what was wrong
I wanna hold you in my arms

I'm losing faith in you and I'm losing faith in us
These years gone by have brought out familiar feelings of mine and I hope
You'll acknowledge my progress, but it's not good enough for me
I know it's sad, I don't know when, I hope I'll grow up eventually
Track Name: Hindsight
Well, yes I'm feeling overjoyed that I'm sleeping by myself
The empty space you left behind has left me room to clear my mind
I'm finding notes you wrote me months ago, your sentimental style
Contrasts with everything I stand for, and I'm not sorry
I'm not asking for forgiveness for sins that I did not commit
Yeah sure, condemn me to a lonely life if that's what you wanna call
This changing state of interaction that now exists between you and me
I never loved you, I never loved you, I never loved you

Talk whatever shit you want to, your words aren't much to me anymore
Well I see what I'm told to see, and I never told a lie that I didn't believe

Let's go!

I am not charming, I am not clever enough to make myself feel better
But that wasn't what I meant, I don't know if I miss you
I'll never say if I did, I paid for my mistakes and now
I'm trying to learn from them
I still dream about you sometimes, I still bring you up in conversation

I asked myself if I was over you
But I guess I was hoping that you knew, I guess I was hoping that you knew
I asked myself who I was lying to
But I guess I was hoping that you knew, I guess I've got a lot of growing up to do
Track Name: Kickin' Rocks
I've been alone for too long, I've been alone for too long
I've been alone for too long, but then I met you, yeah

We can't get any simpler, it's easier when you're around at night
And I need some talking to
I can always count on you to let me know that everything's alright
I'm just a year behind you

Oh!

Now it's graduation, and I've still got another year without you
I can't handle you six hours north in the Adirondacks
You said I'll visit you, I'll call you every morning
It's been days and I'm starting to worry, are you alright?
I'm not alright
Track Name: Perspectives
I've adapted to this feeling of feeling numb
I can feel it falling off and lie and say that you still bother me
False approaches and accusations lead to terrible situations
You're one I'll probably fall asleep with
I hear you're lonely, like I'm lonely

Woo!

We'll walk home on parallel roads
I'm headed for disaster, and you're headed for gold
We're parallel souls, I like the feeling when you said

Be anything you want, oh, it was everything I need
Your voice still resonating
Take a step outside the lines, let me step into your mind
Oh yeah, oh, I'm still waiting
I hear you're lonely, like I'm lonely
Oh yeah, God, I'm lonely, like you're lonely

Woo!

We'll walk home on parallel roads
I'm headed for disaster, and you're headed for gold
We're parallel souls, I like the feeling
Track Name: Long Conversations
Masquerading under veils of overconfidence
My thought express themselves as words, they don't make sense
Knock a jar of pennies over, pick them up one by one
It's too late now, it's too late now all my friends are gone
I can see their faces, I can see what I have done
They've given me all I need, but I need more, I need, I need
Changing, changing
I'm only here to stay the night, I'm feeling alone

Turn those feelings into vibrations
Resonate me
I can't remember how it should be, how it should be
I need somebody

Don't lie to me, I know, I know
I'm leaving for a reason, and I'm not good with words
But the meaning's still there, it's still there
Don't lie to me, I know, I know
I'm not feeling like I remember feeling
I remember feeling, I need somebody

Don't lie to me, I know, I know
I'm leaving for a reason, and I'm not good with words
But the meaning's still there, it's still there
Don't lie to me, I know, I know
I'm not feeling like I remember feeling
I remember feeling, I need somebody
Track Name: You'd Know Better Than I Would (Six Four)
Let me ask you, was it wrong of me to think I should be happy?
Why can't you be happy when things go right?
When they go right for me, for you they all go wrong
Now, you've got something else to cry about, and I've got someone else on my mind
This is your last night with me, so come on, baby
Why don't you complain?
I thought I could hold you in my arms forever
But forever's gone too soon, what else can you do?
Pull me down under you, and I'll suffer
This is your last time with me
So come on, baby, why don't you complain?
You're running out of time to learn that if you keep acting like this
And you keep treating me, keep treating me like

You know everything, and I don't know
I know nothing, then maybe we won't work out

Who's gonna stop me? I guess I'm better off alone
You'd know better than I would
Who's gonna tell me no? 'Cause I know, I know
I can't keep doing shit like that
You don't know that I don't know better and I don't think that we can make it through this
I'm counting on you to let me down like you used to
You know it ain't that hard

I sent you this riff on my iPhone, and you said you loved it
And I said I loved, but I couldn't, oh, I wanted to

You're running out of time to learn that if you keep acting like this
And you keep treating me, keep treating me like
You know everything, and I don't know
I know nothing, maybe we won't work out

Who's gonna stop me? I guess I'm better off alone
You'd know better than I would
Who's gonna tell me no? 'Cause I know, I know
I can't keep doing shit like that
You don't know that I don't know better and I don't think that we can make it through this
I'm counting on you to let me down like you used to
Like you used to
Track Name: Good Luck (The Closer)
So call me, I won't pick up 'cause I know that I'm selfish
and you've had enough but I won't let you tell me off tonight
So go find someone else who's got their shit together
And you can tell them you left me, that you can do better than this
Maybe I'm not the right one, but there's nobody, nobody left

So go pack up your things, skip out on town
You know where to find me if you ever come around
But I doubt you'll ever be less than satisfied with him
He'll tell you want you want to hear, like I did
