Track Name: autumn
nothing like an autumn afternoon
to sit around and think of you
nothing like a song that brings me back
to when we first met and all the days passed
i haven't felt the same about anyone
since i looked into your eyes
i haven't felt the same about anything
since you took me by surprise

but it's been two long years of trying to forget
two long years of living with regret
it's been too many months since the last time we spoke
too many times i tried but I chocked
too many songs that i've written for you
too many times i wished it came true
too many chances i could've held your hand
too many thoughts i'll never understand
about you, about you
i write these for you, for you

it's not like the sun doesn't shine
i just still wish you were mine
and i've been trying to move along
you were right but you were oh so wrong
and it was around this season
that i fell head over heels
and it was for this reason
that i forgot how to feel

but it's been two long years that i'll never get back
two long years that i'll never have
too many people that'll never fill your shoes
too many conversations i'm trying not to lose
too many words that i've written and thrown out
too much silence that was always so loud
too many times you've been in my dreams
too many memories I wish I could repeat
i loved you, i loved you
i write these for you, i love you
Track Name: shadows
i see the shadows, of us from yesterday
you took a trip to, somewhere new, but your heart gave way
and we, try our best so, we can turn out alright
meet me outside oh, underneath the streetlights
we’re moving forward, but this town has grown too small
we try to shrink oh, we’re scared of being tall

oh yeah, take me back
oh ohh, i don’t know
back to yesterday, correct my mistakes
i don’t care, take me, take me there
yeah yeah

i know it’s a little, too late to apologize
people keep leaving, to start their new lives
i’m afraid, of what comes next
i’m so scared; will I live with regret?
you say i’m troubled, and i agree
i tend, to spend time with, myself and misery
misery
Track Name: take me away
connect all the dots on my skin
over the bones that make me human
draw lines to turn me into a constellation
turn me back to stardust what i've been

take me away, take me to the start
find me a love that doesn't hurt this hard
take me, push me, shove me, and break me
make the cracks that'll end up breaking my heart

run your fingers over the lines
that i make when i'm sad but i didn't this time
happiness seems to come and go but never stays
and i'll kiss the thought of you goodbye as i start to fade

take me away, take me to the start
find me a love that doesn't hurt this hard
take me, push me, shove me, and break me
make the cracks that'll end up breaking my heart

take me away, take me to the start
take me away, you'll break my heart
take me away, take me to the start
take me away, you'll break my heart
Track Name: matches
you never said you loved me, no that’s too cliche
you never said to leave but that i couldn’t stay
you always said the rain would wash away
the mistakes that we made but i still see the
red ink markings and the criss cross scratches
you never sewed me up you only taped on the patches
and i look at you from across the mattress
you’ve started up a fire and used up all the matches

we’re fighting with our words and i say it doesn’t hurt
but it feels a lot like daggers
i’m falling into bed, well at least that i’m not dead
none of this even matters

cuz you used up all of our matches
and we’re burning down to ashes

hanging on your words like the edge of a cliff
and i might just let go cause i’ve been known to quit
the snow is falling like leaves in autumn
and it feels a little early for all of this dying
i’m cold throughout my body and i’m frozen to the core
i hold up a glass but you just look at the floor
and i look at you from across the table
you have a pen and paper and you’re writing i’m not stable

we’re fighting with our eyes, and we act like we’re surprised
that they feel a lot like daggers
i’m falling out of love, well at least that i’m enough
none of this even matters

cuz you used up all of our matches
and we’re burning down to ashes
to ashes
to ashes
cuz you used up all of our matches
and we’re burning down to ashes
to ashes
to ashes
Track Name: faith
i lost my faith
that i hid away
tied around your soul
promised you wouldn’t let go

and it’s gone
floated away
and it’s gone
i wish you would have stayed

threw my hope to the sea
what good is it to believe?
disappear into the waves
slept through another day

and it’s gone
floated away
and it’s gone
i wish you would have stayed

gone, gone, gone
floated away
gone, gone, gone
i wish you would have stayed

gone, gone, gone
floated away
gone, gone, gone
i wish you would have stayed
Track Name: growing old
you take cough drops, but you don't cough
you say well they must be working

sunlight in your eyes, you're bad at goodbyes
you say well i ought to be leaving

you leave every time
but you don't get off my mind

we haven't seen each other in months
the last time i said i hoped we'd lose touch

it's been so long i can hardly remember
i fell in love in september
we're losing this october
i'm growing up but you're growing older

you drink til you're drunk, and our ship it has sunk
you say well at least we weren't on it

moonlight in your head, you promised no cigarettes
and i believe your lies are honest

you lie every time
but your words are on my mind

we haven't talked in days
i wanted you to be the one i could save

it's been so long i can hardly remember
i fell in love in september
we're losing this october
i'm growing up but you're growing older
Track Name: hello
first glance romance i wasn't in your plans but i came
late night you're uptight you're not always right but you're sane
shy grins bible sins you say i'm not what i've been but i'll be
months passed last laughs the freckles on your back you can't see

what if we both hadn't left and i said those words that were on my breath
and you smiled a little longer and i tried a little harder like i should
what if you worked up your courage and i sat across from you like i did
and you didn't get off and i didn't look away like i would

sunlight in my eyes you took me by surprise you're what i want
loose change in may you remembered my name and what i'm not
before through doors i always end up wanting more than a hello
you left instead don't know what I expect digging up empty holes

what if we both hadn't left and i said those words that were on my breath
and you smiled a little longer and i tried a little harder like i should
what if you worked up your courage and i sat across from you like i did
and you didn't get off and i didn't look away like i would
Track Name: one year later
i miss the way we were never together
and those words were never meant for me
this is the last time i'll talk about falling
and the last time i'll play make believe

i miss the way we were never together
and those looks were never meant for me
this is the last time i'll talk about autumn
and the last time i'll pretend to leave

you're not golden
i'm not broken
you're just the closest
that i have ever been

you're not golden
i'm not broken
you're just the closest
that i have ever been

i miss the way we were never together
and your love was never meant for me
this is the last time i'll write you a song
about something that we both don't need
