Track Name: I Am
If life is a lit cigarette and love's a liquor bottle, it only takes one drop to slow the flame

I woke up today with a smile on my face like a kid on Christmas morning
It's half past 8, not a minute too late, yeah the city streets are calling
I ditched my bed, my car, my rent - quit my job for good
I've checked out of the real world to live where dreams are understood

Just give me one reason why a dream you have ever has to die

Well I am what I am what I am

I went out to think with a friend for a drink from a day of feeling ugly
She said "send who you are right through this here guitar and sing me someone pretty. You know kids like us - we don't give a fuck, but it don't mean we ain't giving. When push comes to shove, we roll in the mud. It ain't life honey, unless you're living"

Well I am what I am what I am

In every photograph, the smiles and laughs, they seem to fade
It just gets harder when you're looking for those better days
The hearts you've held, the roads you've paved, they're calling out your name
So push your heart to the sky again and again, till it can't get much better
Track Name: My Very Own Road
My mind's cocked and loaded
A pistol of words unspoken
Just to think myself too deep sinks me slowly
My life is an open book of "should have-could have" moments
Gotta give my stars a reach while they're glowing

Give me a reason, give me a reason for staying here
(Oh no, no don't let me go)
Give me a reason, or give me a reason to leave

When everything's broken
And all you've got leaves you choking
But what's bursting at the seams is something golden

I need something I can depend on
Cause all I've got is something to run from

Give me a reason, give me a reason for staying here
(Oh no, no don't let me go)
Give me a reason, or give me a reason to leave
(I've been walking alone on my very own road)
You are my reason, you are my reason for staying here
(Oh no, no don't let me go)
You are my reason so don't give me a reason to leave

We can be heroes anywhere but here
Track Name: Live Again
Oh hell no, stop and listen
You've got some nerve to turn it 'round that way
Honey I know all we've given
But we gave up and I can't give again

This is goodbye, I promise I'll write
If this is love then this is where it ends
Baby don't cry, you're gonna be fine
But listen love, we gotta live again

Oh stop, no intermission
You can't let go until you walk away
The curtain's closed, it's the last time
You'll dig your nails into my spine
Okay, alright, I've never felt better

This is goodbye, I promise I'll write
If this is love well this is where it ends
Baby don't cry, you're gonna be fine
But listen love, we gotta live again

When all you feel feels like disaster
There is no name, no face, that can stop you from what you're after

Baby don't cry, yeah you'll be fine
But this ain't love, so this is where it ends

This is goodbye, I promise I'll write
But listen love, we gotta live

From my head down to my toes
I wish our highs outweighed our lows
But this ain't love so honey I give in
Baby don't cry, you're gonna be fine
But listen love, we gotta live again
Track Name: Battle Scars
Head to my waist
Chest to my heart
Loving you girl leaves battle scars
Another day, another start
But loving you girl leaves battle scars

Well it's been a little while since I struck a smile
Pretty as you are you know I know you well
A million miles, I stopped, dropped my motto to be
Lonely, stranded in an empty well

You've got me wild but not quite my style
To be captivated with a hollow shell
Mind over matter would just say "forget her and leave"
But my mind don't matter, so oh well

Turn me around
Cut me open, bruised and broken, baby
I'm going down
Like a soldier, every mark has erased me

Head to my waist
Chest to my heart
Loving you girl leaves battle scars
Another day, another start
But loving you girl leaves battle scars
Track Name: The Edge
the colors fade
a silent wave distorts me
my head falls face into this panic room i call my body
what better taste
than bitter lace to bound me
I'm at my knees to try and drown myself in peace before i

i reach the edge
it's got me too far down
i've reached the edge
so pull the poison out

the boundaries quake
my armor shakes around me
just one break, a breath, a day to cleanse these impurities
is there no way
to live life free of worry
you feel so faceless when the face you feel
can't face reality

i've reached the edge
it's got me too far down
I've reached the edge
just pull the poison out
I've reached the edge
it can't be longer now
i've reached the edge
so watch me as i drown

when life's a weight
too much to break or bury
when everyday is just the same thin line, the same old story
tare down the shades
tare down the walls around me
just serenade me with the sweetest sounds of tranquil harmony
Track Name: New Time Comin'
time and time again i'm counting seconds
'till the minutes have passed every hour we have laughed to let go
cause every line is the same, yeah we've heard it all before
every chord has been pinched 'till it's life hits the floor
yeah we just need a sign or a song, something more
so tell me who's gonna save us

yeah, it's a new time comin'
yeah, it's a new time comin'
hang with me dear and let me salvage the years we've been waiting
just to fall in love again

excuse me if i seem passive aggressive
i'm just passing the time to aggressively forget the past
yeah we can't all be saved if we don't open doors
thinking outside the box has been locked behind bars
we won't know where to turn if we don't know who we are
so tell me who's gonna save us

yeah, it's a new time comin'
yeah, it's a new time comin'
hang with me dear and let me salvage the years we've been waiting
just to fall in love again
yeah, it's a new time comin'
yeah, it's a new time comin'
lay with me here and let me rewind the years we've been waiting
just to fall in love again
