Track Name: Sunny Day
So here we go again, I've been up all night
Wondering if my next move is right
But I'm overthinking
If what you said to me doesn't really mean anything
'Cause what if I lose track of time
My only hope is just to get by
I can't keep up and with respect
I'm not good enough for it

So don't wait up for me
I'm learning how to just be me
And I know I'm jaded
But I just need time to get where you want me to be
I'm so sick of waiting, and I know it's frustrating
But if you want the best of me
You're gonna have to wait and see

And before it gets to cold out
I need to open up my heart
It's been a while since I've felt anything
So I can't take one more moment displaced
I just need time, to remember my place

So don't wait up for me
I'm learning how to just be me
And I know I'm jaded
But I just need time to get where you want me to be
I'm so sick of waiting, and I know it's frustrating
But if you want the best of me
You're gonna have to wait and see

Should I forget the past and take my chances
Jump in and out and hope for the best 'cause
You're everything
(You're everything to me)
Just wait up a second, I'll be there soon
My head's been lost in the dark of the moon
But it's a sunny day today thanks to you

So don't wait up for me
I'm learning how to just be me
And I know I'm jaded
But I just need time to get where you want me to be
So don't wait up for me
I'm learning how to just be me
And I know I'm jaded
But I just need time to get where you want me to be
I'm so sick of waiting, and I know it's frustrating
But if you want the best of me
You're gonna have to wait and see
I'm so sick of waiting, and I know it's frustrating
But if you want the best of me
You're gonna have to wait and see
Track Name: Breathe
Stop hanging off of me
I need some room to breathe
Need some room to breathe
And this heart inside of me
It needs some room to breathe
Needs some room to breathe

What hope you gave to me before
Can't take away this feeling
I'm grieving, I'm lost and and I'm leaving
But that won't change today and I can't expect not to be afraid
But I'll do my best to just make sense of what the world has made me
But it gets hard and it only gets harder
As time moves on and time moves faster
So keeping up with expectations is wearing me thin
It's wearing me thin

Stop hanging off of me
I need some room to breathe
Need some room to breathe
(To find myself and where I should be)
And this heart inside of me
It needs some room to breathe
Needs some room to breathe
(To get out of this place please)

Stop hanging off of me
I need some room to breathe
Need some room to breathe
(To find myself and where I should be)
And this heart inside of me
It needs some room to breathe
Needs some room to breathe
(To get out of this place please)

Say something, say anything if you really mean it
This broken ship won't make it far
'Cause it was like looking in a mirror
To see a broken man holding his lifeless heart in his hand
(A lifeless heart in his hands)
To see a broken man holding his lifeless heart in his hands

Stop hanging off of me
I need some room to breathe
Need some room to breathe
(To find myself and where I should be)
And this heart inside of me
It needs some room to breathe
Needs some room to breathe
(To get out of this place please)
Track Name: Lifted
So much for sticking around when I needed you
And this dark blue place that I fell into
Can't take away the madness
It can't help in any way
It can't help in any way

You left me standing there all dressed in black
With that crisp white shirt you pulled off the rack
So what did you think I'd say, that I'd forgive you anyway
(well you know what, I'm just not that good of a person)

It's taking some time without you by my side
But that's okay 'cause I know I'm better off without you
So get on up and get on out
Just watch the door on your way out
And I can promise you that
I won't see you around

And I'm getting used to this cursed apathy
'Cause from the bare exterior I know that I seem fine
You can't tell if the pain is fading
Or slowly growing lately
And I don't know if I'm getting better
I've never been so afraid
But the one thing know for certain
Is that you were my biggest mistake

It's taking some time without you by my side
But that's okay 'cause I know I'm better off without you
So get on up and get on out
Just watch the door on your way out
And I can promise you that
I won't see you around

That day you pulled me aside
And said that things weren't going to be the same anymore
I'd given you everything that I had
And then to see not even a week later in another person's arms
And yet you still wanted a part of my life?
I'm so glad you're gone

You fooled me once and I regret everything I didn't say
But fool me twice and I swear that I'll land back on both of my feet

It's taking some time without you by my side
But that's okay 'cause I know I'm...
(You know what, I'm fucking done. I'm fucking done)

It's taking some time without you by my side
But that's okay 'cause I know I'm better off without you
So get on up and get on out
Just watch the door on your way out
And I can promise you that
I won't see you around
It's taking some time without you by my side
But that's okay 'cause I know I'm better off without you
So get on up and get on out
Just watch the door on your way out
And I can promise you that
I won't see you around
Track Name: Sick Sad World
So we stayed up talking way to long until fire inside us died
This moment I've been waiting for so long, I just want to do this right
'Cause when it shows how much it cost, you'll rip the band-aid off
And I know won't hurt but it's too late to cut your loss
(To cut your loss)

So I'll take some time to get this right
I'm just waiting up now 'til it gets light
It's been a long long time since I've felt alright
And here's to leaving the past behind

But for whatever reason I can't pull the words from my head
(Can't pull the words from my head)
And I'm overcompensating for lost time and all this regret
'Cause I had my heart inside a box, you're the only one with a key
But for whatever reason, I guess that we're just meant to be

So I'll take some time to get this right
I'm just waiting up now 'til it gets light
It's been a long long time since I've felt alright
And here's to leaving the past behind

I been waiting for something more like this
Feeling life to the likes of our first kiss
I want it all, I want you here with me
'Cause I know we're just meant to be

So I'll take some time to get this right
I'm just waiting up now 'til it gets light
It's been a long long time since I've felt alright
And here's to leaving the past behind
So I'll take some time to get this right
I'm just waiting up now 'til it gets light
It's been a long long time since I've felt alright
And here's to leaving the past behind
Track Name: Happy
So let me just set the record straight
'Cause I know full well that I'm the one to blame
But don't go around like you're right and I'm wrong
'Cause I've had up to here and I'm all done
I'm all done, I'm gone

I know said I'm happy but I think I lied
'Cause without you I've felt more alive
Than I ever have in ages
So I'm tearing out your pages
I'm tearing out these pages

'Cause trust is never easy
But you can bet it's necessary
To go on about how much you want
Without giving even half of what you got
I can't take it, I can't take it
So go ahead and break it off
'Cause that's all that you have got

Don't push me now 'cause I'll push right back
And for everything you know I have it's you I lack
And I know I've spent some time
In a one-up state of mind
But I'll tell it to you straight
I can't bear the thought of your name next to mine

I know said I'm happy but I think I lied
'Cause without you I've felt more alive
Than I ever have in ages
So I'm tearing out your pages
I'm tearing out these pages

I know said I'm happy but I think I lied
'Cause without you I've felt more alive
Than I ever have in ages
So I'm tearing out your pages
I'm tearing out these pages

'Cause trust is never easy
But you can bet it's necessary
To go on about how much you want
Without giving even half of what you got
I can't take it, I can't take it
So go ahead and break it off
'Cause that's all that you have got
