Rain 03:25
Dawn breaks the day My life is set to replay The fog’s so thick That I can see my pain A scarlet home For a worn out soul Take me away Or don’t take me at all You’ve got me feeling like the past won’t fade away Cause it’s a memory that strangles me I’m calling your name just to feel okay Cause you’re the one that buried me I’m losing myself in this crowded room As the floor breathes beneath you It pulls you in closer It’s right where I need you It was the past that bound my wrists As I sank softly in my sleep And woke to find myself Beneath the surface where I keep All my secrets locked away And my heart, my heart pounds And tries to convince me to stay, “How the fuck do you throw that away?” “You asked for heartbreak and down came the rain.” I’m losing myself in this crowded room As the floor breathes beneath you It pulls you in closer It’s right where I need you

There’s a light that flickered aimlessly But never fell inside a spectrum catered loosely To the misery you’d find And somewhere in between loving me And wanting me to leave You turned into the person that you never thought you’d be Did you ever make it home Cause you never let me know If you're out there in the cold Or you’re happy on your own The years have been a blur A lifetime spent in gray So rock me to sleep And let me fade away You pulled me from the waters Where I took myself to drown You pulled me from the waters Where I took myself to drown I’ll brave the cold for hours Till my world comes to a halt And now I'm seeing clearly This could never be your fault Did you ever make it home Cause you never let me know If you're out there in the cold Or you’re happy on your own The years have been a blur A lifetime spent in gray So rock me to sleep And let me fade away You put me six feet deep And buried me in agony And I swear I saw you smile Everytime that dirt hit my chest And after all of this I’ll still wish you the best I’ll always wish you the best Did you ever make it home Cause you never let me know Maybe you're out there in the cold Or you’re happy on your own own And the words you said in time Now a hazy lullaby So rock me to sleep And leave me to die

Alone 03:25
If you want me to I’ll leave you alone And you can tell me it was all my fault I’ll keep telling you that I was wrong Cause I love you You’re all that I always needed When I look back on your sadness it nearly kills me I was lost and I needed your help You were always there for me But I was blind and I could not see But I can see it clearly now Cause I loved you You’re all that I always needed When I look back on your sadness I can’t believe it So just hold me in your arms tonight You know that I need it I’ll just you in my arms tonight And won’t let you go I won’t let you go

Half Smile 03:13
You chased a love across the country For the sake of saving face And though I miss you dearly I tread your wake in the same place From the moment I arrived My world began to change This love became my home And I’ve never been the same I know you’re hurting I feel you burning You threw your heart away For a place that’s not the same You’re hiding everything But you’re not the one to blame And even though it’s not ideal for you Or the option you’d prefer The story writes itself When you go back to her You set the spark to flame The embers knew my name When they make their way to me You’ll be far too blind to see Through the windows in my room I watched your flowers bloom And I burned beneath your sun I burned beneath your sun You threw your heart away For a place that’s not the same You’re hiding everything But you’re not the one to blame And even though it’s not ideal for you Or the option you’d prefer The story writes itself When you go back to her

Treehouse 04:36
I saw us in the treehouse That your father built when you were young You know it’s hard to see Cause tomorrow came to take me away And that day I lost a part of me That I’m never getting back We were just kids then But I shattered and let it win I found sadness and let it in If it takes too long To come back home Then I might as well leave this alone If it’s too much to ask Just hold me back We’ll be alright We’ll be just fine I keep the memories saved With pictures in their frames I can’t, I can’t complain I can’t, I can’t complain Two state lines away Still nothing has changed Nothing, nothing has changed Nothing, nothing will change Do you remember That song we tried to write when we were young And oh, my god I can’t even remember what we wrote about But it, it was ours We made it together I’ll hold onto that I’ll hold on forever Forever I keep the memories saved With pictures in their frames I can’t, I can’t complain I can’t, I can’t complain Two state lines away Still nothing has changed Nothing, nothing has changed Nothing, nothing will change
