Track Name: This Is For You, Chad
I can only speculate what goes on behind closed doors
Daddy’s little girl shedding tears on her pillow
Constantly wanting not to live anymore
Asking me to take her away

I don’t know what to do when she jumps in my arms
I know it’s hard to hold her still, though
When all she wants to do is drive away real far
I know I’m her escape

So don’t you cry
I’ll wipe away those tears
I’m always here to comfort you
Don’t you ever fear
I know it’s hard to go through what you go through
You’ll always have my shoulder as long as I have you

Wake up to the sound of a ringing phone
Look at the clock and it reads 3 a.m.
Pick up the phone she’s on the other line
Weeping yet again

So don’t you cry
I’ll wipe away those tears
I’m always here to comfort you
Don’t you ever fear
I know it’s hard to go through what you go through
You’ll always have my shoulder as long as I have you

You ran away from all the pain
The pain of life at home
You ran away from even me
I had to let you go

So don’t you cry
I’ll wipe away those tears
I’m always here to comfort you
Don’t you ever fear
I know it’s hard to go through what you go through
You’ll always have my shoulder as long as I have you

I have you
I have you
I have you
I had you
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
I wish that your perfection is in connection with me
Know that your selection, my resurrection, my everything
Shied by my priorities; longing conformity
Sentenced by me

Constricting policies
Time is closing in on me
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking

Wish distance was different
Time can’t be overcome
It’s reality

Tide held down by circumstance
Resisting any chance I see
Dousing immaturity of longing purity
Indeed

Constricting policies
Time is closing in on me
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking

Wait, watch, willingly
Constricting policies
Time is closing in on me

Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking
Wishful thinking
Track Name: You
You said that things would never change
You said that they’d always be that way
You said that we’d never be apart
You said that from the start

You lied
You lied to me
You lied and now I clearly see what you’ve done to me

You said things that I believed
You made one big fool of me
You will see what I have seen
You will know
You will know

We enjoyed good times we had
It seemed like it would always last
But you found someone better; you left me
You never cared about anything

You lied
You lied to me
You lied and now I clearly see what you’ve done to me

You said things that I believed
You made one big fool of me
You will see what I have seen
You will know
You will know

You lied
You lied

It’s over now
It’ll happen again
You’re gone for now
But you’ll be back in the end

You’ll say things that you’ll believe
You’ll look like the fool to me
You will see what I have seen
You will know
You will know
Track Name: Sleep Tonight
I picked you up at 8
Your parents let you stay out late
I can’t forget this night

I looked into your eyes
They caught me surprise
Please don’t forget me

I shared the popcorn with you
Holding hands through previews
I could feel your heart beat

Driving out to Denny’s
Spending my last pennies
You’re worth more, so much more

I don’t want to say goodbye
I don’t want to say goodbye to tonight

Dropping you off at your doorstep
Near brings me tears
Near brings regret
So long, goodbye
Have a safe flight
Please sleep tonight
Please always write

I don’t want to say goodbye
I don’t want to say goodbye to tonight
I don’t want to say goodbye
I don’t want to say goodbye to tonight
Track Name: University Parkway
Hindsight lies right
White light fades into night
That night, that night, that night

Proving me wrong
Proving me, your words are proving me wrong
Proving me, sorrow sings wonderful songs
Proving me, afraid of the truth all along
Proving me wrong

How could I not go?
How could I not know?

Two years wasted
Who cares what might have been?
Everyone’s sobbing me
Now I see, now I see

You Proving me wrong
Proving me, your words are proving me wrong
Proving me, sorrow sings wonderful songs
Proving me, afraid of the truth all along
Proving me wrong

How could I not go?
How could I not know?

Far away, far away, far away, far away
How could I not go (far away)
How could I not know (far away)
How could I not go (far away)
How could I not know (far away)
Track Name: Papa Don't Preach (Don't Preach)
Yeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhh!
Track Name: Dana Point
He pointed fingers, she blamed herself
A heated shouting match said all he felt
She stormed out crying, he said goodbye
Got in her car and she began to drive

It’s too late for anything
You left go everything
Stuck there wondering what she felt

The shards are caved in, the road crimson and cold
He sat there thinking of all that he told
She lay there lifeless, last feeling all alone
Ten miles away he sat at home

It’s too late for anything
You left go everything
Stuck there wondering what she felt
His conscience wavering
His words were angering
She exits Avery one last time

It’s too late for anything
You left go everything
Stuck there wondering what she felt
His conscience wavering
His words were angering
She exits Avery one last time

It’s too late for anything
You left go everything
Stuck there wondering what she felt
His conscience wavering
His words were angering
She exits Avery one last time
Track Name: Eighth Grade
Here I am, alone
Without a clue in my heart
With all the pain you’ve gone through
Just tell me where can I start

To change your life and make it better for you?
To make you laugh and put a smile on your face?
Just tell me what can I do to heal the pain you’ve gone through?

Get rid of all the pain you feel and
Get rid of all the memories you felt with him
You felt with him

Just at what he’s done to you
Why do you wanna feel this way?
Just take my hand and come with me
And I will show you the way

With him
You felt with him
Yeah, you felt
Ah, you felt
You felt with him
Track Name: Why Did You Break Up With Me, Lindsay Parker?
Dreams have gone awry
You know that I
Could never find
Please tell me why

We fell apart
You broke my heart
Where did it start?
Why did you/we part?

It helps to think that you’re as lonely as me
It helps to believe that you’re not the one for me

Lindsay, please tell me the reason that we cannot be
Tell me why it was that you broke up with me
How could you walk out my door so easily?
Thought we’d last so long and now you’re gone, I see

Please tell me the reason that we cannot be
Tell me why it was that you broke up with me
How could you walk out my door so easily?
Thought we’d last so long and now you’re gone

Now what can I do?
It’s sad, but true
I’ll start anew
‘cause I’ve lost you

You’ve ruined me
Maybe I’ll see
Why this could be
Imperfectly

It helps to think that you’re as lonely as me
It helps to believe that you’re not the one for me

Lindsay, please tell me the reason that we cannot be
Tell me why it was that you broke up with me
How could you walk out my door so easily?
Thought we’d last so long and now you’re gone, I see

Please tell me the reason that we cannot be
Tell me why it was that you broke up with me
How could you walk out my door so easily?
Thought we’d last so long and now you’re gone

Lindsay, please tell me the reason that we cannot be
Tell me why it was that you broke up with me
How could you walk out my door so easily?
Thought we’d last so long and now you’re gone, I see

Please tell me the reason that we cannot be
Tell me why it was that you broke up with me
How could you walk out my door so easily?
Thought we’d last so long and now you’re gone
Track Name: Lilac
I miss the tender sound of silence when I held you in my arms
The scent of us so beautiful, like a lilac in the fall
The shadow of two that was once won by a deceiver in disguise
It seems to near in the distance to these naked eyes

Inconsistencies
Lies I’ve told
Warm breath on my neck
Memories I hold
Oh, so close to me
Trust betrayed
Everything once had, twice frayed

Reminders in every breath beheld of a pain once caused
The bliss was so spectacular, so foolish and so far
Wronged you were by immature, desertion was so wise
Perfection lost on constants, lies lies lies

Longing legacies
Layered loss
Battered and blaming me
Truth ‘tis tossed
Once so close to me
Trust betrayed
Everything I had, I frayed

The blame is one me
Track Name: The Flesh It Burns
I lost the day
Can’t grasp the pain
Innocence in vain
The light begins to wane

The stars are dead tonight
Dispelled and contrite
The dust has filled the night air
It’s tragedy in despair

So hard to stay
You lead the way
The path is hard to follow
The sights are shrouded in sorrow

Hardened by my wrongs
Falling faster, falling farther
Faith is lost into
Shattered dreams where lives are broken
Broken in two

Crowded hallways are always the wrong way
Take the long way, instead
If anything, regret

Shades of evermore
Lost in nevermore
Slow brake for nothing
The road is closed ahead
Awaking in nothingness
Longing indifference

Hardened by my wrongs
Falling faster, falling farther
Faith is lost into
Shattered dreams where lives are broken
Broken in two

Nothing is right
You knew more than before
Lost insight
Of my mind, time gone by
Faith is fading
Don’t look away
Fond souls dying in mine
Track Name: Roschelle
Take me tonight
Take me this time
Take me away
You make everything fine

We’ll touch the sky tonight
Maybe this time
You’ll take me away
You make everything alright

I can’t see inside of me
I can’t breath, I’m suffocating

I can’t believe in spite of everything
Everything we see is suddenly changing

Show me tonight
Show me this time
Take me away
I was wrong and you were right

You’ll leave me tonight
Leave me for the last time
You’ll go away
My heart has lost the fight

I can’t see in spite of me
I can’t breath, I’m suffocating

I can’t believe in spite of everything
Everything we see is suddenly changing

I fell tonight
Saw you for the last time
You drove away
Now I’m waiting for brakelights
Waiting for brakelights
Waiting for brakelights
Waiting for brakelights
Waiting for brakelights

Waiting for you to return to me
Waiting for you tonight
Waiting for you to turn around
Waiting for you forever

Now I’m sitting here alone alone
Wondering where you went, wondering where I went wrong
I can’t see inside of me
I cannot breathe
I’m suffocating
Waiting for you to turn around
Waiting for you tonight
Waiting for you to return to me
Waiting for you forever
Track Name: It's Okay to Cry Sometimes (Bonus Track)
You were the one that said you cared
You were the one that left me there
Now I can see what’s in your eyes
Now I can see all those lies
Now you’re gone, so why do I try?

You can’t see what’s in my eyes
You can’t read what’s on my mind
Leaving you was so hard
Reasons locked within my heart
You deserve more from me

From me
From me
From me

You the world was made for us
You said there’s no one else you trust
All those times I was there,
How can you say that I don’t care?
Now you’re gone, what’s left to share?

Standing face to face
Collision course ahead we chase
Putting hearts upon that line
Separate lives will take some time
Wish the best for us from now
Until the end, goodbye
Goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
