High 03:45
Falling through the sky with your wings spread Aimless as a leaf being blown about The universe was sitting in the palm of your hands How you let it go I'll never understand You were High off the ground Nowhere to land but you keep looking down High and alone Nobody to catch you when you're totally unknown Sweet as wine and just as blind Trapped in a world with no path to find Living like a million felt like yesterday Never saw it slipping now it's gone away You got High off the ground Nowhere to land but you keep looking down High and alone Nobody to catch you when you're totally unknown Open your eyes, you'll find what's been missing Learn how to turn on the light Life's not a game, there's no rules to follow No place to escape out of sight Trapped in your skin, it's too late to begin Finding your way in this life Open your eyes and see that there's no way out No there's no way out

The Rhyme 02:44
Time don't lie to me anymore Oh, but I lied to you Oh I lied to you Well I hope I have this figured out Cause it went Too far Too fast to slow it down for the rhyme Too far Too fast I just lost it all in the blink of time Broke my promise without pause Crossed that line with ease Now I'm lying here waiting for the dawn to come I hope I've got this figured out Cause it went Too far Too fast to slow it down for the rhyme Too far Too fast I just lost it all in the blink of time What do I do? What do I say? Do I tell her straight away? Do I look her in the eye? Will she see it's all lies? Do I hope to wake up? Too far Too fast to slow it down for the rhyme It all went Too far Too fast I just lost it all in the blink of time Time don't lie to me anymore

It's been two weeks since I've felt you Wrap your arms around my chest And I know that when I'm with you That's when I am at my best I am sorry I am sorry Well I wish that I could say that I still love you more and more How was I supposed to know I'd ever dream to let you go The truth is I don't know if I still love you anymore How could this have gone so far Who am I to break your heart Now that I have lost you And I'm the one to blame Well I know that there'll be nights when I would die for you again I am sorry I am sorry Well I wish that I could say that I still love you more and more How was I supposed to know I'd ever dream to let you go The truth is I don't know if I still love you anymore How could this have gone so far Who am I to break your heart Please walk away The truth's not always wrong or right Don't turn around Love's not clear as black and white Please understand I don't know anything at all I am over you I'm crying over you Well I wish that I could say that I still love you more and more How was I supposed to know I'd ever dream to let you go The truth is I don't know if I still love you anymore How could this have gone so far Who am I to break your heart The truth is I don't know if I still love you anymore How could this have gone so far Who am I to break your heart

When I knew I was small When you knew me you didn't know me at all When I held you near it seemed so clear You were hiding behind your fears Love was all I had to give Now you know the truth Love was all I had to give To give to you When we first met we were strangers in a room I felt so small, you seemed so certain You came with all you had You gave your heart, your soul, your passion Turns out you're a fragile little girl Digging a whole to hide the doll you loved so dearly Trapped in the dark, you never found your way home Love was all I had to give Now you know the truth Love was all I had to give To give to you When I knew you I was small When you knew me you didn't know me at all Love was all I had to give Now you know the truth Love was all I had to give To give to you Love was all I had to give Now you know the truth Love was all I had to give To give to you

Letter 02:51
Hey there stranger Long time no see How have you been I've thought about you From time to time I hope things are well It's too bad we had to leave on bad terms I wish that it wasn't that way I have memories Of carving our names in trees in the park We'd hide from the rain Watch it get dark And I know that you've probably moved on You don't want to look to the past I'm sure you've found someone you quite adore I have as well, we're doing just fine Well I hear people say, "Love needs time to move on," Who knows, maybe they're right I have memories Of carving our names in trees in the park We'd hide from the rain Watch it get dark And I know that you've probably moved on You don't want to look to the past

Deja Vu 03:11
Another day passes by On the calendar another line Feels like I've been here before Why did you come in here Switch me up then disappear Come back let's talk some more There's something familiar 'Bout falling unsure so fast Feels like it's happening again Deja Vu (There's something here, it's so familiar) Deja Vu Some think I'm hallucination Wishful thinking, and creating These thoughts inside my head But I know I've been there, done that Where or when though, I don't know that It's not something that I read There's something familiar 'Bout falling unsure so fast Feels like it's Deja Vu (There's something here, it's so familiar) Deja Vu (It's coming clear, I wanna be with ya) Always coming back, it seems to me To where it all began Deja Vu When you said you felt it, did you mean it? And every time I hold you do you need it? And everything you can't explain, Do you throw it out in the rain? Or ride the storm with no more blame? Deja Vu (There's something here, it's so familiar) Deja Vu (It's coming clear, I wanna be with ya) Always coming back, it seems to me To where it all began Deja Vu

I really shouldn't write this song No good can come from it I shouldn't even be here but I need to tell you this I want you back There was a time rolls were reversed Your words tore at my heart Stones thrown at my window Even Cupid played his part Now my window makes no sound No arrows come my way Tonight I wish my phone would ring So I would hear you say I want you back I thought this when I thought of you today I want you in so many words I don't know what to say I'm sure these thoughts will disappear at some point down the line I'm sure that I'll be over you I'm sure that I'll be fine This morning making breakfast I would only cook for one The empty seat across from me was blinding as the sun I want you back You asked me for a second chance and I turned you away Now I wish my phone would ring and I would hear you say I want you back

Can't Go On 03:15
Don't you see I was just fine without you You came back into my life You came to me Wrapped yourself around my head I introduced you to my friend You turned a new page when you met him A perfect match made in heaven Woah I can't go on like this Woah I don't know what it is I thought I missed You and me We've got years of history You always seem to let me down Don't ask me why I'm always letting you back in You start out sweet then knock me down I should've seen it coming You only look out for number one Woah I can't go on like this Woah I don't know what it is I thought I missed Woah I can't go on like this Woah don't ask me why He told you that we weren't friends He's just trying to get in your pants I guess it worked I thought that you gave a shit but I guess I was wrong I should've seen it coming my way I should've known you'd find a way to hurt me first

Be Mine (free) 03:23
Do you see the way the sun shines on you Or do you hide in the shade? Do you see the way all eyes are on you Or do you just look away? I know you don't know Girl I love you so So baby be mine Baby be mine I know you don't know But girl I love you so So baby be mine Do you feel the wind blowing through your hair Or do you cover up your face? Cause I've never seen a girl like you So afraid to show your style and grace You don't see your true reflections And all the beauty that you hold Cause I've done my time, I've looked around All the rest have left me cold I know you don't know But girl I love you so So baby be mine Baby be mine I know you don't know But girl I love you so So baby be mine You're like a star in the daylight For you I would set the sun so that you can See how bright you shine on me I wanna be with you so let me in Do you feel the warmth of love in my heart? It's only there for you I know you don't know But girl I love you so So baby be mine Baby be mine I know you don't know But girl I love you so So baby be mine Baby be mine

The perfect night out with my friends I move away and stand behind the lens To see them through this little screen All caught in time living a waking dream Oh Have we lost our sense of now Or just it's worth? Should we start all over We're always catching memories By sacrificing what this moment could be Like saying Spring will come again Instead of staying out until day's end Oh We could lose this moment now And all it's worth Instead of starting over So when I'm walking in the night I try my best to take in all the sights Appreciating where I am Without a phone or camera in my hand Oh I'll just keep my sense of now And all it's worth Instead of starting over
