Track Name: Where This Began (Beautiful Mess)
You made it so easy for me to leave
Giving me nothing but a comfortable wreck
First came the wind and then the change in the leaves
Then came the winter and I couldn't look back

But how did these tears get so heavy
that they would just fall to the ground?
Leaving more puddles for me to jump over
While drenched in these treasures I found

But so help me I can't escape
this beautiful mess that I've made
I'm just caught in a transitional phase
It's alright I'm far, far away
From where this began

See the streets I used to tread over
Dead on a screen, of no use to me
In the end I didn't know it was over
Thought it was just a break from that lonely scene

But how does the time go so quickly?
It was just yesterday I was young
Young enough to live without meaning
When all I was given was enough

But so help me I can't escape
this beautiful mess that I've made
I'm just caught in a transitional phase
It's alright I'm far, far away
From where this began

Because after all we are
just footprints in sand

But how do I move on
When I've found perfection in glass?
And I'm finding no matter how hard I try
I simply cannot live in the past

But so help me I can't escape
this beautiful mess that I've made
I'm just caught in a transitional phase
It's alright I'm far, far away
From where this began
Track Name: Slow Burn
It's a slow burn inside my heart
I'm floating free, anchored to the start
Oh it's a long night but I don't think
It's quite as over as I hoped it to be
But here I am

Holding on
You were never in my dreams 'til you were gone
All the energy that's spent in moving on it's still a
Slow burn and the flame keeps me awake until the dawn

I would change if it would mean
That all I've lost would come right back to me
Maybe in a new way, but suddenly
All I want don't seem so out of reach
But here I am

Holding on
You were never in my dreams 'til you were gone
All the energy that's spent in moving on it's still a
Slow burn and the flame keeps me awake until

I can't sleep
Without you next to me
Oh I believe, yes I believe that we've got
Years to make it right

It's a slow burn inside my heart
I'm floating free, anchored to the start
Oh it's a long night but I don't think
It's quite as over as I hoped it to be
But here I am

Holding on
You were never in my dreams 'til you were gone
All the energy that's spent in moving on it's still a
Slow burn and the flame keeps me awake until the dawn
Track Name: Break The News
Oh it seems you knew me well
Long before I even knew it myself
Now you've gone away but don't stray too far
'Cause I've got this funny feeling way down in my heart
That you were wrong to leave
You were wrong to leave

Oh, I don't want to break the news
That my heart's no longer yours to lose
Don't hesitate it won't be long before
You're not the one on my mind anymore

Falling sand, the passing of time
Rising hope since the end of the line
You're losing your chance to find out what we could have
If you made up your mind
And if you were wrong to leave
Oh, if you were wrong to leave

Oh, I don't want to break the news
My heart's no longer yours to lose
Don't hesitate it won't be long before
You're not the one on my mind anymore

Oh I am breaking down
Tired of the run-around
I'll be sleeping in my car
Long before I come back to you


Oh, I don't want to break the news
That my heart's no longer yours to lose
Don't hesitate it won't be long before
You're not the one on my mind anymore

Oh, I don't want to break the news
That my heart's no longer yours to lose
Don't hesitate it won't be long before
You're not the one on my mind anymore
Track Name: Can't Take Your Word
Homesick for a home that no longer exists
Here the sun is out at midnight but by the morning light I will be
wide awake again
Oh, I had a dream we both went floating over the sea
I caught you as you fell, made a wish in the wishing well but I
still don't know what it means
Can't be left alone with these ideas
They just turn into all my childish fears

That you'll just walk away again
I always thought I'd know better
But I can't take your word

The novelty fades, all caught up in the blades
We put our name before hoping to ignore that that's all we may ever be
A name etched in stone, words that chill to the bone
I'm staring at the ceiling, holding to the feeling that this may be the end that we know
Can't be left alone with these ideas
They just turn into all my childish fears

That you'll just walk away again
I always thought I'd know better
But I can' take your word

Oh no, I've fallen
So far from where I've been
Oh we could make this water under the the bridge of the next town over
As soon as I know

That you won't walk away again
I always thought I'd know better
Always thought I'd know better
Always thought I'd know better

But you'll just walk away again
I always thought I'd know better
But you'll just walk away again
I always thought I'd know better
Always thought I'd know better
Always thought I'd know better
But I can't take your word
Track Name: City Lights
Let's sleep in and blame the traffic when we're late to work
I know that this has never been my home
but I'm sure gonna miss that record
Hanging on the wall
I won't take it when I go

Times are tough but I tell you the view couldn't get any better
I keep thinking back to those summer days we would
Sit and listen to that record hanging on the wall
I do miss it after all

But of all the things that I have ever missed
I shoulda known, I shoulda known
You'd be on that list
Of things I could never keep
I remember every time these city lights sing me to sleep

Let's make time out of construction paper, Popsicle sticks, and glue
Hang it on the wall and only take it down on those days
We're feeling blue
'Cause it's only time that's keeping me away from you

But of all the things that I have ever missed
I shoulda known, I shoulda known
You'd be on that list
Of things I could never keep
I remember every time these city lights sing me

But please just let me get through this winter
It's been harder than I thought
Just to keep my feet dry
And I was getting so damn tired of watching
everyone else's airplanes going by

But of all the things that I have ever missed
I shoulda known, I shoulda known
You'd be on that list
Of things I could never keep
I remember every time these city lights sing me

But of all the things that I have ever missed
I shoulda known, I shoulda known
You'd be on that list
Of things I could never keep
I remember every time these city lights sing me to sleep
