Track Name: Silent Reply
I spent a whole year sleeping; dreaming
Woke up shaking, screaming; crying
I spent my whole life dying

The moment I knew
I loved you
Was fallowed by the moment in which you said
We could never see each other again

I stopped reaching for something real
Cause happiness is just something you feel
I heard a silent reply
When I said I loved you that night

You’re always reaching for what you can’t grab
I’m learning how to be happy with what I have.

I’d sell my soul for a reason to live
But no one will buy what you’re willing to give
I heard a silent reply
When I said I loved you that night

I love you for all the ways you’re like me, but you hate yourself
So I’d be better off if I was just anybody else

It was a cold night for me
You wore my sweatshirt and drew, as I sang
I heard a silent reply
I said I loved you, but it felt like good bye.
Track Name: Fast
Live moment to moment
Brings regrets
Everyone knows
You have no secrets
Always looking for some
Quick fix
Or something to help you

And I tried
To keep up with your life
But there’s no time
To let my heart catch up to my mind

And you said it’s fun
To make mistakes
But don’t clean up the messes
You make
Always up for the gamble
Ignore the stakes
Ignore the guilt
No matter how it aches

And I tried
Not to put up a fight
But tonight
I felt your bite

You said I need to learn
To let you do what you do.
Well I hope me leaving
Teaches this back to you

’cause you live so fast
Always running from your past
You live too fast
How can anything ever last
Track Name: The Moth & the Moon
Why is the love of one
Not as good as another
It’s harder every time
To take a new lover

These pills make me feel
Like I did before we met
Well I wouldn’t need them
If I could just forget

Though the love of one
Is not as good as another
I’m living in Hollywood
Might as well be an actor

If you want happiness
Just redefine it
To fit
Exactly what you get

These pills make me feel
Like I did before we met
Well I wouldn’t need them
If I could just forget

I’m the moth, you’re the moon
City lights misguide from truth
These pills make my body a liar
I fly into the fire

These pills just won’t do
A cheap substitute
It’s plain to see
I’m better when you’re with me.
Track Name: Peter Pan
The timing’s bad
So this can’t last
Is what you say
When we’re talking

I stuttered back
Pressure in my chest
Push me away
‘Cause I’m not walking

Well it’s a shame
I’ll need to change
And try
Live like I’m dying

Because I’ll never be the same
If you have to say
Life’s too short
To be waiting

Maybe there’s a chance
I’ll find something
That is this
Good again

But you suggest
That nothing is
Ever as good
As I pretend

Well maybe I’m broken
And these words I’ve spoken
Are just naive

With this I’m coping
But I was still hoping
That you might believe
In the same things

So maybe I am
Just peter pan
Trying to hold
A snow flake in my hands

Maybe I am
Just peter pan
Trying to hold
This snowflake in my hands

What do you have
Just a moment that will pass
Then what’s the sense in making plans
When you know nothing can last

So maybe I can’t
Stay peter pan
Trying to hold
This snowflake in my hands

But I tighten my grasp
Pray it will last
If I close my eyes
I can believe anything.
Track Name: Goodbyes & Hellos
Getting on a plane
It’s a happy day
’cause I’m on my way
To see my baby

Everyone’s packed their dearest things
Tucked them underneath the seats
On their way from, or back home
It’s nice to arrive and so sad to go

Well my baby, showers me with kisses
Two for all the ones I’ve been missing
While a girl leaving has tears down her face
And I know soon I’ll be in her place

But for now
I’ll pretend this is how
Things will always be
Even though I know, I’ll have to leave

And when I get back on that plane
It’ll be such a sad day
But we both know
What comes will go
And goodbye’s and hello’s
Always seem to follow
Track Name: Regrets of a Married Man
Well I found what I was looking for
And I wouldn’t dare ask for more
But I have no closure and no crystal ball
And everything feels like it’s about to fall apart

A man says to me “I fucked up”
I married the wrong woman, one that I’ll never love
As much as the girl I loved in my youth
I was young and stupid. I was a fool
Now I lay in bed every night
Feeling nothing for this woman that I call my wife
He says “don’t let go of love, and live without regret”
I said, that’s great advice, but life’s more complicated.

In our search for meaning we gamble with our happiness
And like any other bet, it’s just a guess
So do I stay or do I walk away
Only time will tell if I made a mistake

Of course I don’t want to live with regret
Always wishing things were different
That’s why I try so hard not to disconnect
Holding onto hope, till there’s nothing left

If I knew I’d forget you in a year
It wouldn’t be so god damn hard when you decided to disappear
But I know I will never forget
And every new disappointment brings this old regret
It’s easy to walk away if you’ll be happy again
But what if it turned out you were my only chance
So I stay tied to uncertainty
Till I find a reason you will never love me

I hope you’re being honest with yourself
’cause you know your lies won’t hurt as much to anyone else
And if you want to build a wall where a connection was made
Well then I hope you’ll be happy in your barricade

Of course you don’t want to live in regret
Always wishing things were different
But you’re the one trying to disconnect
So don’t get mad at me when there’s nothing left
You pushed me aside, but if you want me gone
Just tell me you felt nothing for me all along
And I hope you’re honest, and that’s the truth
Or you’ll wake up feeling nothing for the person next to you
Track Name: Stay
I wanted you to say,
You love me so
But when your lips moved
They only said no

I waited for the day
When I’d feel like home
But you packed your bags,
Said you’re better off alone

And I wanted you to stay
Or take me on the road
I was hanging on your leg
You said I had to let go.
Track Name: Change
My heart isn’t in this
And I keep checking my phone
Something about a crowd of people
That makes me feel so alone

And I wish you’d call
to take me away
I know you won’t though
That’s why I’m in this place

And I feel like a loser
She says I’m not
Then why can’t I ever
Get what I want?

and I’ll try to leave myself
In the hopes that there’s something
Better that I can find

I stand on a scale
And I look in the mirror
I want to be so thin
That I disappear

So I don’t eat
Till I see my bones
Just so I can feel
Something other than feeling alone

I’d take the life
That everyone else suggest
If I thought it would
Bring me some happiness

So when you find what you’re missing
I hope it’s not something you lost
‘cause we sell pieces of who we were
So we can grow up

I’ll strip myself down
Piece by piece
I hope I’m not what you were missing
‘cause there’ll be nothing left of me
Track Name: Sand
We thought we were a stained glass window
To make sense of this
But all of these broken pieces
They can’t always fit
And I hoped when I stepped back
I would find
A beautiful image
Exposed in the light

But there’s no beauty to uncover
And I keep stepping back
Sometimes when you mix all the colors
It just goes to black

And though I thought I might be
Making a mistake
I put my blinders on
And I went straight
So lets stay under the covers
It’s warm in your bed
And the sooner we leave it
The sooner this ends

Intrigued by what you may discover
But I’m not your man
Sometimes you want a lover
But you take what you can

I don’t blame us for trying
But we’re further from completion than you know
Someday someone will take all these pieces
And see where they go

But we’re not that noble window
I could see as you ran
We’re just looking though an hour glass
And we are the sand.
Track Name: Adapt
I know
You want to feel complete
And I’m callous
Love will trample the weak

And there’s no changing needs
But plans have to adapt
My heart still beats
But my veins are filled with sand

And I’ll take what comes easy
And go with the flow
I’ve become a mirror
To every emotion you show

But I’m empty
And this is all just an act
Emotions got too heavy
And I just had to adapt.
Track Name: The Other Way Around
Oh, it would be easier
If it was the other way around
’cause I could have the smile
And you could have the frown

Why do they always grow tired of me
Why do they always grow tired of me

Oh, it would be easier
If it was the other way around
’cause I could have the smile
And you could have the frown
I wouldn’t be feeling
So down
Why can’t it be
The other way around

Why do they always grow tired of me
Why do they always grow tired of me

Nothing’s meant to be
And you’ll grow tired of me
Baby in time you’ll see
There’s plenty of reasons to leave
