Track Name: Better Days Ahead
A sudden spark and trading glances
As if broken hearts could never happen
Undeniable from the second it began
So we put tomorrow off as long as we can

Only waiting for even better days ahead
And always swore it would never end
We carried on and carried on
And always swore it would never end

Under an amber glow, there with me
You had a smile like I’ve never seen
Everyone around us had disappeared
We turned that night into years

Only waiting for even better days ahead
And always swore it would never end
We carried on and carried on
Until we realized we can’t pretend

Only waiting for even better days ahead
And always swore it would never end
We carried on and carried on
Until we realized we can't pretend
Track Name: Clear Morning
It’s never easy
When we realize we are
Still in pieces
And the countless reasons
We’re right back at the start
New excuses

Will I ever learn
What I should’ve known by now

I'm through with you
And telling myself I'm to blame, not you
I'm through with you
And waiting for a better change in you

It’s become clear to me
You never had a clue
What you should do
I know it’s hard to believe
It’s time that I try to
Go on without you

Will I ever learn
What I should’ve known by now

I'm through with you
And telling myself I'm to blame, not you
I'm through with you
And waiting for a better change in you
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
I tried again
To show you that there’s more
It’s all been said
A million times before

Oh, I’ll be dead and gone
Before you even realize
The ways that you’ve been wrong
And finally open your eyes

I can’t live
Long enough for you to see
No more to give
After all you’ve bled from me

Oh, I’ll be dead and gone
Before you even realize
The ways that you’ve been wrong
And finally open your eyes
Track Name: My Only Regret
I feel it now, it’s all around
I can’t deny it
When the world revolves around
The things you have not found
Life can be unkind
But I’m trying

My only regret is not doing this
Much sooner
The longer I rest, the more I resist
The future

I see it now, I’m all about myself
I can’t deny it
So, I take my time and look around
For things that I have lived without
This time
No compromising

My only regret is not doing this
Much sooner
The longer I rest, the more I resist
The future

It’s time I face it
And take all the blame
It’s time I get
Out of my own way

My only regret is not doing this
Much sooner
The longer I rest, the more I resist
The future
Track Name: A Life Untitled
Alas the time has left me alone
Once remembered these feelings must go

Never will it come back
Never will it come back

A life untitled aimless in it’s ways
Now unbridled has left and gone away

Never will it come back
Never will it come back
Track Name: Never Going Anywhere
These are the times
Daydream weekend long romanticized
All we hoped for
Always better than the real thing

Facing forward
But never going anywhere

And all that time
We spent planning, planning out our lives
We thought by now
That we’d be living, living it out

Facing forward
But never going anywhere
Track Name: Empty
With my hand upon your heart
Before you travel far
I whisper to you dear
“Just keep me right here”

Baby,
You left everything
But the place is
Still so empty

It’s almost been a week
Count minutes without sleep
While you’re out and about in
The city of Portland

Baby,
You left everything
But the place is
Still so empty
Track Name: Everything To Me
I started thinking
As I sit here next to you
There must be something
that put you right in my view

I know it’s something you just cannot see
But it’s everything to me

I don’t need to know
Your life story
I’m making up my own
that put you right here next to me

I know it’s something you just cannot see
But it’s everything to me
Track Name: Looking Back
Now that the calm has come
I can see all I’ve done
From what I can tell
I woke up as someone else

I try to understand
It’s never clear
How all the years that passed
Have left me here

Whirlwind of circumstance
Decisions of my past
Leaving me only regret
To start this over again

I try to understand
It’s never clear
How all the years that passed
Have left me here

Just once, I’d like to have it made
Track Name: Only I Would Stay
It’s easier to be told
than to decide
It’s easier to behold
than have to try

How could I doubt you
Would find a way
And as we both knew
Only I would stay

It's harder when you recognize
It can be your own
It's harder when you realize
It did not make you whole

How could I doubt you
Would find a way
And as we both knew
Only I would stay
