Track Name: Twenty Years
Your birthday's on my calendar
Must have mixed it up
With a day I thought I cared about
Cheap shots, that I’m drowning in
I think they’re doing their best
To try and make me forget

But so far now I’m still so bitter
At 4am I can’t tell whether
I hate that dick who whole from me
Or if he’s really what you need

In twenty years I might see you
We’ll meet up for a drink or two
And laugh about the way
We fucked this whole thing up
We’ll both go on our separate ways
And never look back on these days
You’ll be out of my mind when its said and done

In our current state I think it’s fair to say
I have a right to be, passive agressive
But it won’t be long, till I’m over things
Then I’ll realize, it doesn’t matter

In twenty years I might see you
We’ll meet up for a drink or two
And laugh about the way
We fucked this whole thing up
We’ll both go on our separate ways
And never look back on these days
You’ll be out of my mind when its said and done

In twenty years we’ll both be older
And none of this will even matter
You’ll have kids and you’ll be married
And I’ll be stuck
Playing in this bar tonight
These songs about my younger life
Wondering where I just might have fucked things up
Track Name: Lie To Me
Why don’t you just lie to me
And tell me that theres something left
So we can keep our dignity
And reasons why were in this bed
Cause we both know
You won’t sleep alone again
I can’t take (the silence, the silence)
I can’t breath (she’s lying beside me)
Still wide awake
Trying to make sense of all of this

And I don’t know why I still lie to myself
Convinced I could fix this the moment we fell

Something tells me that you’ll take me down
Something tells me I don’t need you now
The truth I know, I don’t need to see
So do your best and fucking lie to me

Why don’t you just tie me down
On these cold hard tracks
Cause whats the difference now
I’m still on my back in this place
While you laugh in my face
And watch me sleep

And I don’t know why you still lie to yourself
Believe your own bullshit
And put me through hell

Something tells me that you’ll take me down
Something tells me I don’t need you now
The truth I know, I don’t need to see
So do your best and fucking lie to me

I don’t know anymore
I don’t know anymore
I don’t know anymore
Just lie to me
What did you expect from me

Something tells me that you’ll take me down
Something tells me I don’t need you now
The truth I know, I don’t need to see
So do your best and fucking lie to me
Track Name: Potential
I found a photograph buried in my wallet
I forgot I had, you wrote something on it
Scribbled on the back, it was addressed to me
It said “Go out, do great things cause we know you deserve this
You’re still so young, theres no need to be nervous
Don’t sit back and wait for it to come”

I wish I had seen this the day I left home
Things might be different if I reach for it all

It comes and goes so quickly
No time to stop and stare
I know it's always been my choice
But I don't want to be a disappointment

I put so much stock in the things that you told me
The lessons you gave, it felt so controlling
Wish I listened now, oh God I wish I had more time
The point of conclusions that I thought I knew better
Am I wasting my twenties, afraid that I’ll never
Live up to what’s expected of me

I wish I had seen this the day I left home
I don't think it would've made a difference at all

It comes and goes so quickly
No time to stop and stare
I know it's always been my choice
But I don't want to be a disappointment

It came and went so quickly
I stared for far too long
I know it's always been my choice
But I don't want to be
(I found a photograph buried in my wallet)
It goes so fucking quickly
(I forgot I had, you wrote something on it)
I wish I could keep up
(I found a photograph buried in my wallet)
I know it's always been my choice
(I forgot I had, you wrote something on it)
But I don't want to be a disappointment
Track Name: Runner Up
I think we’ve gone through quite enough
To say we’re growing up together
And it’s times like these that really prove our worth
Tell me why I can’t feel any different
When the clock ticks 12 and I’m going out of my mind

Counting down till the day till we’ll feel alive again
It’s always too far away
And I know that it won’t be the same
I know that it won’t be the same

Please tell everyone I know that Im ok
Cause I’ve been taking every chance I get
And throwing it away
It feels like I’m running a race against myself
That I can’t win

Counting down till the day till we’ll feel alive again
It’s always too far away
And I know that it won’t be the same
I know that it won’t be the same

I’ve been sidelined, I’m use to this
It’s starting to feel comferatble
I know my place
I’m runner up in your heart

Counting down till the day till we’ll feel alive again
It’s always too far away
And I know that it won’t be the same
I know that it won’t be the same
