Track Name: Optimism
Are you listenin' for that beat
That will fill your heart and move your feet
Lose yourself, be lost, and stay
Let music melt the world away
Like a puppet on heart strings
Become one with the rhythm

So we can get lost in time

I know you feel the same
And tomorrow is so far away
So lets dance the night away
I wouldn't have it any other way

Lets make our hearts speak louder
Lets make our feet work harder

Wrap yourself up in the melody
Remember what it feels like to be loved
Swing, swing to the left and to the right
I wanna be in your arms tonight
I'll always hold your had as we
Become one with the rhythm

So we can get lost in time

I know you feel the same
And tomorrow is so far away
Lets dance the night away
I wouldn't have it any other way

You make my heart speak louder
You make my feet work harder
You make my heart speak louder
You make my feet work harder

I know you feel the same
Tomorrow is so far away
I know you feel the same
So let us melt the world away
Track Name: Stages
For every single sleepless night i wasted
On you
Pencils and pages, dates and ages
Come unglued

Each song from a place and time from this heart of mine
Be strong
I know that this is hard for you but our time is through
So long

If i could write a melody to trap a memory, would it be the same?
If i could write a melody to tell our story, would it keep me sane?
If i could write a melody...
If i could write a melody.

These endless nights of stages underneath these
Burning lights
I never looked back not once...
Not twice.

If i could write a melody to trap a memory, would it be the same?
If i could write a melody to tell our story, would it keep me sane?
If i could write a melody...
If i could write a melody.

If i could write a melody.
If i could trap a memory.
If i could tell our story.

I wrote a melody.
Track Name: Whole
I'll give you a secret, that you can keep.
About why i'm so damn afraid to sleep.
There's nothing but regret behind my lies.
Not everyone lives, but everyone sure dies.

It will always just be me, my shadow, and my soul.
It will always just be me, my shadow, and my soul.

Couldn't you hear it in my voice, shattered pride by inevitable choice.
Just let me be whole.
Couldn't you see it in my eyes? Lucid love and raging fires.
Just let me be whole.

You've learned to hide yourself all too well.
While i can't find myself in a self created hell.
It's a lonely place i'm trying not to find.
I'd read between the lines, but it appears that i am blind.

It will always just be me, my shadow, and my soul.
It will always just be me, my shadow, and my soul.

Couldn't you hear it in my voice, shattered pride by inevitable choice.
Just let me be whole.
Couldn't you see it in my eyes? Lucid love and raging fires.
Just let me be whole.

It will always just be me, my shadow, and my soul.
It will always just be me, my shadow, and my soul!
IT WILL ALWAYS JUST BE ME, MY SHADOW, AND MY SOUL.

Cause i am the one and only Whole,
Baby.
Track Name: Threeday
I won't pretend things are better than they are,
I'm sick of wishin'
I had a new name to go by.
A lie to live.
You crossed my heart,
And i hoped to die until i found the strength to say,

You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You know you could died yesterday.
You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You could lose it all without a say.

I have momentum to live an incredible life.
You should do the same,
There is absolutely no excuse
To hold back this time
As i tell the world,

You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You know you could died yesterday.
You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You could lose it all without a say.

I don't know if you know what i'm trying to say,
but i can't say it any other way.
I don't know if you know what i'm trying to say
But i can't stand to waste one single day

You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You know you could died yesterday.
You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You could lose it all without a say.

You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You know you could died yesterday.
You should change your ways,
Live for today.
You could lose it all without a say.
Track Name: Come Away
Well i've forgotten all my problems,
Sang them all away.
Let go of worry just searching for a better way
To spend my days
In places i've never seen
With friends i really don't know,
just waiting to become you know
A part of the picture.
A character in the best best scene
Where we are all just sorta happy
and i will always get to sing.

Come away with me
It's time to make that change.
Come away with me.
We'll call the road our home.

Well my mom she will go ahead and ask me
Just where where where have you been?
I'll reply "Livin on the edge of my dream
just about to fall into
That perfect situation
Where hours eat minutes and have seconds
Accepting that the globe wont stop
Til' my fingers sprawl out to point out the next destination
I left it up to chance.
Cause love and laughter come so naturally
when you let yourself

Come away with me
It's time to make that change.
Come away with me.
We'll call the road our home.

Come away with me
It's time to make that change.
Come away with me.
We'll call the road our home.
Track Name: Starsy
Oh I've been drinking more than i should
I know she don't care, I just wish she would
Got so tired of singing to the porcelain
Wondering why i even do this?
Hands are shaking as i pick up the phone
Can't drink enough to forget i'm alone

Starlight is my spotlight
Don't wanna go home tonight
Starlight is my spotlight
Can't survive another night
Starlight is my spotlight
Please don't take me home

Tonight.

I've been drunk more than i should.
Another night of this, i dunno if i could.
My heart sorta hurts from the night we met
Never said it then, just dealt with regret
So now i'm trying to move on
So i'll keep singing my stupid fucking songs

Starlight is my spotlight
Don't wanna go home tonight
Starlight is my spotlight
Can't survive another night
Starlight is my spotlight
Please don't take me home

Tonight.

I've been hungover more than i should.
My head sorta hurts but hey i guess i'm good.
Lying on my back wrapped up in the sky
Starshine makes me smile when i wanna cry.

Starlight is my spotlight
Don't wanna go home tonight
Starlight is my spotlight
Can't survive another night
Starlight is my spotlight
Please don't take me home

Tonight.
Track Name: F-Bomb
For every night i lay awake
Sleepless as the day
Mark off the calendar date
Cause time has a way of makin'
Us look like fools
Searching for gold on the ceiling
With stars up in our eyes
You know it's true
Wanting something more but missing whats right in front of you

I'm gonna fuck, fight, and be free
You can't take that away from me
Gonna hate and love the world
Sorta like i did that girl

I'm gonna fuck, fight, and be free
You can't take that away from me
Gonna hate and love the world
Sorta like i did that girl

We had a way of thinkin'
The world was gonna end
Like it had anything to do with us
And our pathetic lives
Just keep the wool wrapped and
Blinding my eyes to a point
I missed somewhere along the way
A rose i never smelled
Another feeling i never felt

I'm gonna fuck, fight, and be free
You can't take that away from me
Gonna hate and love the world
Sorta like i did that girl

I'm gonna fuck, fight, and be free
You can't take that away from me
Gonna hate and love the world
Sorta like i did that girl

Fuck. Fight. Be Free.
(Gonna fuck, gonna fight, be free)
Fuck. Fight. Be Free.
(Gonna fuck, gonna fight, be free, can't take that away from me!)

I'm gonna fuck, fight, and be free
You can't take that away from me
Gonna hate and love the world
Sorta like i did that girl
Track Name: Cinematic
I used to love the sunset
You said you love it too
And never to forget
But we got lost in the night sky anyway

Had front row seats to the stars
But ended up watching passin' cars
We sang our hearts out
To that radio

I'll never forget that night
It wasn't wrong it wasn't right
Together, forever.
Or so it seemed.

Cinematic, so fantastic.
I don't wanna remember anymore.
Picture framed in my mind
It's too late to rewind.

Cinematic, so fantastic.
I don't wanna remember anymore.
Picture framed in my mind
It's too late to rewind.

Hand in hand at the break of dawn.
I parked on your neighbours lawn.
Didn't know it was our last night together.

We went our separate ways.
Enough memories for the rest of our days.
Did you know i love you still.

Kissin' bottles instead of your lips.
Maybe its you movin' my fingertips.
Every thought an endless stage
in slow motion......

Cinematic, so fantastic.
I don't wanna remember anymore.
Picture framed in my mind
It's too late to rewind.

Cinematic, so fantastic.
I don't wanna remember anymore.
Picture framed in my mind
It's too late to rewind.

I used to love the sunset,
you said you loved it too
and never to forget
but it's been dawning on me that

You are a part of me.
Track Name: Cloudy
The bed we shared now lies so cold
I knelt and watched as you came, as you went
Now your miles away with someone growing old
And i'm a lifeless statue of crumbling cement

Cloudy thoughts on quiet days
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth dying for.
Cloudy thoughts on quiet days
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth living for...

Our future turns to ash, as we turn away
I still see you crying in the rain
The colours fade and surrender to grey
Along the lines of a shattered window pane

Cloudy thoughts on quiet days
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth dying for.
Cloudy thoughts on quiet days
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth living for...

Blood stains on broken glass
A million shards of me on the floor
I wanted to destroy myself and my past
All i did was scar myself as you slammed the door

Cloudy thoughts on quiet days
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth dying for.
Cloudy thoughts on quiet days
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth living for...

Cloudy thoughts on quiet days,
Hopeless romance is the only thing worth a damn.
Track Name: Lonely Little Camping Song
Can tonight last forever,
Don't want it to end, no, never.
I think that i've found heaven
Alone in these strings
In these notes I am free
To sing about who I wanna be
Don't know where my life's goin'
I only know where i'm from.

Tonight well i'll sleep lonely,
With you on my mind only.
Pretty picture in my head
shows everything I never said
Been dreamin' about what will never be
Between her and me

Can we make this last forever?
If only for tonight.
Cause i don't wanna say goodbye, Goodbye.

Can love live in memories?
Or will you just not remember me.
Cause i don't wanna say goodbye, Goodbye.

Pretty little angel stole my heart,
Took it and ran right from the start.
Pretty little angel in my eye,
Maybe i'll see her when i die.
Pretty little angel stole my heart
Took it and ran right from the start
Pretty little angel in my eye
Never want to hear her say

Goodbye.

Until then
I'll just sing my song.
In the hopes she's singing along.

She sang that i could change my stars
But i couldn't bring myself to.

Can we make this last forever?
If only for tonight.
Cause i don't wanna say goodbye, Goodbye.

Can love live in memories?
Or will you just not remember me.
Cause i don't wanna say goodbye, Goodbye.

Well this is my lonely little campin song
And i hope your singing along
Cause everybody says goodbye
Sometime...

Oh, everybody says goodbye

Sometime.
