I can't break out from this mental state, I'm always half awake I watch the clock tick tock my chances away, try and tell myself to go seize the day, but I'm too comfortable Complacency is a killer you see, I need necessity Take me away, take me far from this place, from the shivers and shakes It's all I can do to compare me to you To feel listless and lonely I don't have a clue I'll push myself but I'm going in circles I'll try to change but it just isn't working I'll just try to stay a little less than ok Cos it's the only way I'll stay sane Anxiety gets the better of me and I'll struggle to breathe I can't just wait, need a total escape, get me out of this place It's all I can do to compare me to you To feel listless and lonely I don't have a clue I'll push myself but I'm going in circles I'll try to change but it just isn't working I'll just try to stay a little less than ok Cos it's the only way I'll stay sane With all this time I spend inside No wonder I feel like I'm losing my mind I'll push myself but I'm going in circles I'll try to change but it just isn't working I'll just try to stay a little less than ok Cos it's the only way I'll stay sane We'll be ok, I know we will We'll be ok, I know we will We'll be ok, I know we will We'll be ok, I know we will We'll be ok, I know we will

Duvet Day 00:41
I'm not coming in today, I don't care what you say Not a chance You'll take this duvet from me when you pry it from my cold dead hands Get fucked I just want to stay in bed today

Smile 03:22
It can be hard to tell, to differentiate between The sort of feelings that you get can range from mild to the extreme But i know i can't mistake it or begin to fake it If love hurts I'll take it and crawl back for more The look she gave me I can't replicate it I can't forget it I know it's tough but this has to be love I know I can't escape it I've put oceans between us The distance just leaves me wanting more But I can look into your eyes and I just smile I just smile Sat in a card shop basement thinking you can't be replaced Who else would put up with this shit, let alone actually enjoy it? It never gets easy to leave please believe me But I know you need me, and you know I feel the same way The look she gave me I can't replicate it I can't forget it I know it's tough but this has to be love I know I can't escape it I've put oceans between us The distance just leaves me wanting more But I can look into your eyes and I just smile I just smile I know these days and nights we spend apart feel like they last forever and we'll never share the same sunset But i've got patience to spare, so know i'll always wanna hang around for you Because we can do anything, we can go anywhere

Just let it go Give it time and don't rewind And then you'll know We're a thousand miles apart, but close to home My eyes are focused on the road Inside my head I feel i'm barely holding on I'll catch up I don't know what time it is All these little differences are what keep us separate But we'll work our way through it My eyes are focused on the road Inside my head I feel i'm barely holding on I haven't slept tonight I'm rushing back to make things right Just stay awake, I'll be home soon If there's nothing wrong then talk to me I'm so far from home, but I can see that you're struggling So breathe in, breathe out If you need to then shout I'm falling apart, but I know you can start to help me to pick up the pieces to put me together again I'm helpless lost and selfish But i'll give it up if we make it through this I'm helpless lost and selfish So talk to me If there's nothing wrong then talk to me I'm so far from home, but I can see that you're struggling So breathe in, breathe out If you need to then shout I'm falling apart, but I know you can start to help me to pick up the pieces to put me together again

I quit, I'm losing grip I don't see how you don't see that this is the end for you and me We're both so broken that we can't help put each other together I can't catch you if I'm jumping as well So i'll go first, what could be worse? Don't ask why i'm leaving or try to reverse I'll go first Don't act like this wasn't rehearsed Time and tide won't wait for you And I don't think that I will either We've grown apart, and we weren't that close from the start I can't say I'll miss you That's it, i'm done with this How can you expect to move forward when you're smiling and walking away I won't beg you to stay To be honest i'm breathing a sigh of relief and i'm counting the days So i'll go first, what could be worse? Don't ask why i'm leaving or try to reverse I'll go first Don't act like this wasn't rehearsed Time and tide won't wait for you And I don't think that I will either We've grown apart, and we weren't that close from the start I can't say I'll miss you So i'll go first Don't act so surprised and don't act so hurt So i'll go first I know that you would have done worse Time and tide won't wait for you And I don't think that I will either We've grown apart, and we weren't that close from the start I can't say I'll miss you

Shortcuts 03:13
Late nights and long drives home, Carrying on all alone People and places change but I just seem to stay the same And I know it's hard for you to relate to what I've been through But just know i'm happy and i'm doing what i wanna do I can't change no matter what you do I'm just set in my ways but I'm not judging you I've always been this way Naive enough to say that I think I'm gonna be ok When you're taking shortcuts you're just missing out on everything I'll take the long way round, be lost and never found You'll get there faster but I'm built to last Keeping cool while you're burning out Spent half my life it seems, chasing after all my dreams You'd think I'd have caught them by now but they keep outrunning me I can't fake this, it's make or break If I knew what I know now i'd do it again I can't change no matter what you do I'm just set in my ways but I'm not judging you When you're taking shortcuts you're just missing out on everything I'll take the long way round, be lost and never found You'll get there faster but I'm built to last Keeping cool while you're burning out And I know there's nothing that i'd rather do I'd travel days just to waste time with you And when my body breaks down and my money runs out At least I'll have something to sing about You're taking shortcuts When you're taking shortcuts you're just missing out on everything I'll take the long way round, be lost and never found You'll get there faster but I'm built to last Keeping cool while you're burning out You're taking shortcuts We're keeping cool while you're burning out We're keeping cool while you're burning, but you'll never learn

Looks like i'm moving on again Another year marks another another end I thought my plans were solid but even steel can bend I don't know know where I can go Things always work out in the end But i'm burning bridges that I could mend And building new ones in their wake They're already starting to shake I don't know where I can go I guess i'll pack my things up and go Another house I couldn't call home Just like a VHS i'll tape over, but the memories still show I don't want to leave I want to plant my roots But there's so much to see Conflict is all that drives me Guess I'll pack my things up and go I guess i'll pack my things up and go Another house I couldn't call home Just like a VHS i'll tape over, but the memories still show How can I get better when I want to settle but i've seen what the world has to offer?

It's hard to shake the feeling I should be somewhere else, doing something new, do you feel it too? Haunted by past decisions, ever present cynicisms I could be miles from here or i could be dead Either way i'm stuck It's just my luck I've been waiting for so damn long, trying to figure out where I went wrong Hindsights a curse but you're making it worse We are where we are and we've still got so far left to go Let's make bad decisions, defy traditions, embrace collisions And see where it gets us Let's make bad decisions, defy traditions, embrace collisions And see where it gets us I'm so tired, feeling uninspired I'm just trying to be someone that you admire And every single thing I regret helps me to forget i'm still here And i'm doing OK I've been waiting for so damn long, trying to figure out where I went wrong Hindsights a curse but you're making it worse We are where we are and we've still got so far left to go So time ticks by, you can't spend your entire life locked inside So time ticks by It won't wait for you I've been waiting for so damn long, trying to figure out where I went wrong Hindsights a curse but you're making it worse We are where we are and we've still got so far left to go So far, so good, so long

So say hello to selfishness because I'm putting myself first Turns out what i thought was for the best turned out to be the worst Life is always about compromise but does it have to be Why can't I do just what I need to do to make myself happy Because life is short, and though that's cliché When we put our lives on hold our dreams can fade So let's put the past behind us, concentrate on what it is To be young and have ambition And focus everything on this We won't be satisifed to only say that we have tried Life has it's ups and down but we'll keep our feet firmly on the ground And i know that one day we'll look back and we'll see The hard times, the low points, they all led you to me So let's not fall down at every obstacle Because it's all just part of all that makes us strong And i know that one day we'll look back and we'll see The hard times, the low points, they all led you to me So let's not fall down at every obstacle Because it's all just part of all that makes us strong So here we are, we've come this far We won't be satisifed to only say that we have tried Life has it's ups and down but we'll keep our feet firmly on the ground We won't be satisifed to only say that we have tried

Not today old friend I'm trying to pretend that everything's just fine, and I'm not just wasting my time But I can't have this conversation for the fifteen hundredth time If I don't meet your expectations maybe they're set up too high Because i'm great, and you're such a state I'm done being miserable, I can't sit around and wait Because I've been there, I've given that blank stare I've told the world I'm doing fine when I'm as good as dead behind the eyes It's alright to not be alright I'm waking up tomorrow I'm not giving up now, i'll take all my sorrows to bed with me I'm not sure what'll make me happy But i'll figure it out Live out loud through the cloud of self doubt Try and shout when there's something to shout about Try and weather the storm it'll pass Light a match and just hope that it lasts Because i've been there, i've given that blank stare And I refuse to build a wall around myself so watch it fall And if you ever need my help you know i'm here with outstretched arms, a helping hand, an open door, a front room floor I'm waking up tomorrow I'm not giving up now, i'll take all my sorrows to bed with me I'm not sure what'll make me happy But i'll figure it out I think we'll be OK I'm waking up tomorrow I'm not giving up now, i'll take all my sorrows to bed with me I'm not sure what'll make me happy But i'll figure it out I think we'll be OK But i'm getting there
