Track Name: Just Like You
Every scar tells a story, defects that prove the past
The same way the heal and disappear
we cannot let this hurt last.
Apologies strum my hearts strings,
"Forgive me I love you son."
Your lips say you're sorry but, your hands say you've just begun.

I am just like you, I wanna be happy too.
And though you have no clue, I'm gonna be just like you.
I'll learn to talk with my hands, no, more like demand
and they'll see it my way, and learn how I did from you.
The cycle continues.

Well half of me feels so empty, just knows that it's all my fault.
The rest of me doesn't know what i've done, so young but still so wrong

I am just like you, I wanna be happy too.
And though you have no clue, I'm gonna be just like you.
I'll learn to talk with my hands, no, more like demand
and they'll see it my way, and learn how I did from you.
The cycle continues.

I just wanna be loved, like all of my friends.
But if I react, then you'll react back,
this message will never get through.
I don't know how to love, love anybody else.
Not even myself, but no-one can tell
and I don't know what to do.

Because I am just like you, I wanna be happy too.
And though you have no clue, I'm gonna be just like you.
I'll learn to talk with my hands, no, more like demand
and they'll see it my way, and learn how I did from you.
The cycle continues.
Track Name: Simple Things
Simple things.

You look beautiful in a white t-shirt and that pair of jeans from the yard sale
that pair of glasses that you wont give up, that your grandmother gave you,
from when she was young.
I love that.

Remember the rainy summer we spent inside, I learned so much about you.
We looked at old yearbooks and you got real shy,
at the faces you made with your friends in those pictures.
I loved those.

It's the simple things that I love the most about you.

The way you bite your lip and try not to smile every time I tell you you're pretty.
How we can lay for hours in the grass out back,
we're both saying nothing, but thinking the same things.
I love that.

That it's the simple things I love the most about you.

But I think that I forget sometimes, when I get locked up inside my head
That complications are self imposed, so lets put our worries to bed
and just keep it simple between you and me.
I'd love that.
I'd love that.

'Cause it's the simple things I love the most about you.
Track Name: I Gave You Away
Truly the first, the only, the second chance,
I gave you away, I gave you away
nervousness found, you whispered a pure romance
you said don't be afraid, you can't be afraid

But I only hear through critic's love-deaf ears
choosing that which houses all my fears
my heart will push away if yours gets near
as proof of how it holds you so dear.

It's a long way from home, so how did we both get here, wondering how to feel.
We've gone way off course, thinking ourselves in circles, making up things to fear.

I was afraid what maybe they'd think or say
So I gave you away, I gave you away.
New to my eyes, the weeping you blinked away
I was meaning to say, I was burning to say

But we just stood there like fools,
words grew so elusive, silence so cruel
I wish you knew that this next part is true
I never hoped I'd hurt you like I do

It's a long way home, so how did we both get here, wondering how to feel.
We've gone way off course, thinking ourselves in circles, making up things to fear.

Every part of me
knew that that night would be an ending
and damn what people see
I wanted to cry uncontrollably

but that's when you said something so strange.
Just as I thought things would never change,
you said, “hold me so we always stay the same,
but kiss me like they're taking me away.”
Track Name: Keep Breathing
Keep breathing
Keep breathing!
Hearts hung heavy and eyes framed wide,
searched for trouble but none came by.
But I found a letter with these words inside:
"A hopeless heart can't help but die."

Keep breathing.
Keep Breathing!
Comfort would be infinite time
to trade for answers to questions you hide
but I'm just human I only can try
to be my bravest and live my life....
Track Name: Change
...and leave some love behind.

So take a breath and clear your head, move a forward step instead,
of being sand the current can sweep too deep
Imaginary fires I feed, of all the outcomes I've conceived,
the everyday just sinks it's teeth in me.

But I will learn to disagree, I'll struggle through defeat, and never tell the lie that I am weak.
Should I stumble or I fall, no shame in being stalled,
just a chance to make you taller when you stand.

Change, must start inside of you.. Oh trust, you'll know what you need to do.

There's no time to drag my feet, there is life out there to seek,
but I must concede I can't be everything.
But if I'm sure of just one thing,
all of you are just like me,
with difference in the ways we choose to see..

...that change won’t ever go away, and wiser men than me will say
that it's the only thing that stays that's truly real. Approximating what we need
is just like kicking your own feet
stuck in place just hoping someone breaks you free.

(oh) Change, must start inside of you.
(oh) Trust, you'll know what you need to do.

Cause life is not anxiety nor phobia of destiny,
love grows once you start to see that
you control where it will be

one day you'll recall this as the tears outline your smile,
the moment that you realized that life is worth your while,
but that right now it important just love that which you seek
so stand and show your heart, cause these next moments could mean everything

(oh) Change, must start inside of you.
(oh) Trust, you'll know what you need to do.

Life is not anxiety nor phobia of destiny,
love grows once you start to see that you control where it will be.

I'm not my father, not my father, just my father's son.
