Track Name: It's About Time
We’re boxing we’re fighting I’m screwed
You’re a champ and I am prone to lose
it's only round one and I am down, down
I’ll stand tall I’m not on my own
You may be gone but we are not alone
the bell has rung and this one is done
Who cares who won?

But we can both go on
Our teams change but we’re still strong

It seems like round two thought we were done
Can’t we end this now? enough is enough
I’ve put my gloves down, lets just talk this out, out
Words are a start look in my eyes
I’m done with these games tell me what’s inside
don’t you remember how things used to be
can we find that again?

But we can both go on
Our teams change but we’re still strong
We’ll fight on the same side
I’m here for you even if you’re not mine

It’s a lonely battle, that’s fought without a cause
it’s an endless struggle that we’ve been on
but you can stay by my side (stay by my side)
don’t you know that it’s time
Track Name: A Way to Get By
Bitter cold days
you’re walking on some ice though you know it can break
But you’re there with a dream
that one day you can free your darkest thoughts

Heads up don’t take a step back
in front of you, lies a perfect path
let it be, just to see, you and me are free
with truth and work you can be great
the ground can hold, you’ll know that it’s your fate
its the time, no rewinds, keep your days at bay

Spring is here
many things can still break (can break, can break)
though the ice has cleared
and you’re still weighed down
by all things unknown (unknown, unknown), oh are you worried now?

Come back down
Don’t get caught in the clouds

Come back down (Come to me it’ll be okay)
Don’t get caught in the clouds (I’m here for you, don’t you know that i’ll stay?)
Hope to find (hope for us and we will find)
A way to get by (a way to get by for you and I)


Come to me it’ll be okay
I’m here for you don’t you know that I’ll stay?
Hope for us and we will find
A way to get by for you and I
Track Name: Something To Believe In
In finding direction, you live in reverie
Clarity and peace of mind is something you can't see.
It's something you achieve by knowing who you wanna be
Love yourself for who you are and never skip a beat

And if you ever feel let down,
Know that I'm always around

The anxiety that lived in me was tearing up my head
And thankfully I finally see the past is merely where I've been
And everything I hated, while now it's all so faded,
Remain remnants of a tortured time that I've thrown by the wayside

Second chances don't come often, but they're
How you know you're blessed
With everything falling to pieces you know that you can hold the rest
In the palm of your hand
Enjoy the cards you've been dealt, and ignore the tempting deck
'Cause it's all for a reason, it's something to believe in

Right now you feel lonely like the world is at your feet
And everything is broken like a glass menagerie
But know that love is at the door
I know it's just what you've been waiting for

But now I've found peace of mind.
Track Name: Mind Games
I see you shake your fingers when I know you’ve lost count
of all the past times you know it didn’t work out
You dropped the gavel on this conscious state
Let’s start over, Let’s start over right now

You say you were wasted, only thing wasted was my time
I’m so tired of chasing something I know can’t be mine
Now I know that I’m just fine
I’ll find my own way in time, my own way in time

These days and nights shift the paradigm
of what’s reality for me
the two of us are on different pages
Few and far between

You’re toxic, playing games with the best
but the difference is you lack all respect

Well baby now I’ve figured out your game (I figured out your game)
and I’ll make sure you don’t forget my name
Track Name: Streetlights
Bring it back to the start, before we fell apart
Evaluate life as my own work of art
In response to my questions I'd get vicious remarks
that left a lingering taste in my mouth and a stain on my heart
From the tip of my tongue to the base of my spine,
every fiber of me lives in every line

The autumn air bites worse than your words ever could
stuck between the lines of if I can and if I should
Rain falls on the window, fogging up my drive home
streetlights pass as I fail to grasp
your fading distant echo

I'm thinking clearly, lucid in my head
It's my mission to show you my world isn't dead
Apologies are for the weak but I've never felt so strong
and am I sorry? for just wasting my time
I can't believe that I lasted so long
that I let you control, so much of my mind

A breath so cold it makes me quiver
A heart like ice, it makes me shiver
Track Name: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor Swift Cover)
I remember when we broke up the first time
Saying, "This is it, I've had enough," 'cause like
We hadn't seen each other in a month
When you said you needed space. (What?)
Then you come around again and say
"Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change, trust me."
Remember how that lasted for a day?
I say, "I hate you," we break up, you call me, "I love you."

Ooh, we called it off again last night
Ooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you

We are never ever ever getting back together,
No We are never ever ever getting back together,
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we are never ever ever getting back together

I'm really gonna miss you picking fights
And me falling for it screaming that I'm right
And you would hide away and find your peace of mind
With some indie record that's much cooler than mine

I used to think that we were forever ever
And I used to say, "Never say never..."

You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me, yeah
We are never ever ever ever getting back together
Track Name: Something To Believe In (Acoustic)
In finding direction, you live in reverie
Clarity and peace of mind is something you can't see.
It's something you achieve by knowing who you wanna be
Love yourself for who you are and never skip a beat

And if you ever feel let down,
Know that I'm always around

The anxiety that lived in me was tearing up my head
And thankfully I finally see the past is merely where I've been
And everything I hated, while now it's all so faded,
Remain remnants of a tortured time that I've thrown by the wayside

Second chances don't come often, but they're
How you know you're blessed
With everything falling to pieces you know that you can hold the rest
In the palm of your hand
Enjoy the cards you've been dealt, and ignore the tempting deck
'Cause it's all for a reason, it's something to believe in

Right now you feel lonely like the world is at your feet
And everything is broken like a glass menagerie
But know that love is at the door
I know it's just what you've been waiting for

But now I've found peace of mind.
