Track Name: Untitled
People come and go, they’re all the same it seems
I’ve got too many holes where lovers used to be
Can’t be good for me, but I don’t like to be alone really

Storm headed south, missed me by a couple miles
I was almost in the mouth of trouble, I was excited
I wanna be afraid of something again

Either stick around until things fall apart, or you get the hell out of there early
And wonder what could’ve been, I’m not saying I have a preference

The worst thing you could do is leave, when I tell you, “just go”
We both know I don’t wanna you to leave me alone
The worst thing you could do is leave, when I tell you, “just go”
Don’t listen to me, don’t listen to me no

It’s not your job to apologize for things that hurt me, though I half expect you to know what will
I thought getting older would make me strong

And I’m tired, is it showing?
I wanna change my temperament and change my mind,
but it’s hard to do when I’m set on something

And is that all, will you be going?
I need a sense of urgency that I hope you’ve got,
For you to call me back even when I tell you not to

The worst thing you could do is leave, when I tell you, “just go”
We both know I don’t wanna you to leave me alone
The worst thing you could do is leave, when I tell you, “just go”
Don’t listen to me, don’t listen to me no
Don’t listen to me, don’t listen to me
Track Name: Candy
If ever you feel cold
I hope you’ll come on over
I hope you’ll think of me
Find comfort in the small things

If ever you feel ordinary
I hope you’ll think of what we’ve done
I hope you’ll think of my heart and yours
And think of all the big stuff

You’re sweet like candy
I knew it since you arrived
You make for lighter landings
I prepare for hard falls but am met with light every time

You feel to me like fiction
It never is quite real to me
You match my best depiction
Of dreams I hoped one day I might see

I waited through the winter
I hoped I’d catch some sign of spring
You came into my purview
Disrupted everything

You’re sweet like candy
I knew it since you arrived
You make for lighter landings
I prepare for hard falls but am met with light every time

If we don’t match up every time
If you leave me in the dark or outside
If some days your heart is not as full as mine
I will trust the beaten path to morning light
And hope to meet you there in some time
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Lose
Covered in things
I should’ve thought of
That I didn’t think of
That I should have thought of

So what if it’s all
My decisions
Or my indecision
Oh I just can’t pick one

You give me so much to be afraid of
You give me so much to be afraid of
There is so damn much that I’m afraid of
You give me so much to be afraid of

But I don’t wanna lose
Yeah I just wanna win
No I don’t wanna lose
I just wanna win the war

Swallowed my pride
Packed up my things and went home early
Not wrong to go home early
Except that it steals your pride

I was a child once
I still am one I know it
But I just turned twenty
And I feel time slipping by

You give me so much to be afraid of
You give me so much to be afraid of
There is so damn much that I’m afraid of
You give me so much to be afraid of

But I don’t wanna lose
Yeah I just wanna win
No I don’t wanna lose, no
I just wanna win the war

I just wanna win
So I’ll know what I’ve been fighting for
Track Name: Je Rêverai à Toi
Je ne pense pas
Je ne suis pas certain
Je ne sais pas, je ne suis pas sûr

Que quand tu pars
Je resterai dans ton coeur
Oh tell me I will stay

Quand tu vas
J'espère que nous resterons toujour en contact
Je penserai toujour à toi
Je rêverai toujour à toi
Track Name: Talk About It
Change my mind
It’s easy to do
But change my ways
Only works when I have to

All the times when I do the opposite
All the times when I do what I shouldn’t

Talk about it til I’m blue in the face
Do nothing about it
Go outside, take a walk
Call my friends on the phone

I stay quiet when I have too much to say
Try not to count on it but I condemn the ones that make my same mistakes

Do what I ask of you
Do what I tell you to
Do what I ask of you
Do what I tell you to

When I tell you to…
