Track Name: Back To Haunt You
I've been running backwards wasting time
You're stuck in last year and still not mine
I can finally see things clearly
Because now my heads not spinning
And now my stomachs not turning

You've been calling my name for weeks on end
And I'm not sure if I believe you yet

It's all coming back to haunt you
No matter what you try to do
Your past has been the one to come from behind you
As you try to stand and not fall

And with all this extra dialogue
The act can stop and you can take a bow
For everything you did to me till this day
Including all the time I waste

You've been calling my name for weeks on end
And I'm not sure if I believe you yet

It's all coming back to haunt you
No matter what you try to do
Your past has been the one to come from behind you
As you try to stand and not fall

Friends are pointing and laughing
You ask how did this happen
As you stand there by the bed
Now you're a walking punch line
You'll never be mine
Just get it through your head

It's all coming back to haunt you
No matter what you try to do
Your past has been the one to come from behind you
As you try to stand and not fall
Track Name: Same OId Story
So what would you do if I was to choose
To let things go I just want you to know
That every move you make, and every breath you take
I’d rather bend and break then spend time with you

I’ll just keep my head from looking down
And play all my favorite records loud
Yea

Can’t you see it’s the same old story
Past and present I wait for the morning
Hoping that something will change
Won’t something just change
Here’s what I want to say

For the record I should remember
A miss is as good as a mile and I’ve heard
Time heals a broken heart
Good things will fall apart
Too bad I never understood a word you said

My shelves are filled with movies and cds that just remind of you and me
If I could take it back and start again
I’d stand you up, and leave you waiting

I should have gave up long ago
If I only knew back then what I now know
I’ve been wasting so much time
I’m wasting yours like you’re wasting mine

For the record I should remember
A miss is as good as a mile and I’ve heard
Time heals a broken heart
Good things will fall apart
Too bad you never understood a word

I said
Id always stick around
You said you’d never let me down
I should have gave up long ago
If I only knew back then what I now know
Track Name: Forget Her
Stand in line and take a number
All this pressure that I'm under
Means nothings getting done
Because we got nothing done last week
This week isn't looking better
All my friends say just forget her
Tear up and burn all her letters

No I never wanted you in the first
Because you way me down in the worst ways
So don't ask tonight if I changed my mind
Just forget about it

I've been remembering everything friends said to me
When they say girls like you are just a waste
We're getting nothing done this week
Next week isn't looking better
My conscience says just forget her
I know I can do much better

No I never wanted you in the first
Because you way me down in the worst ways
So don't ask tonight if I changed my mind
Just forget about it

You're dropping all the lines I've heard a million times
Face the facts I've gotten over you
I'm not wasting time with these goodbyes
It feels so good to get over you
You're dropping all the lines I've heard a million times
Face the facts I've gotten over you
I'm not wasting time with this

No I never wanted you in the first
Because you way me down in the worst ways
So don't ask tonight if I changed my mind
Just forget about it
Track Name: Clearing Up
Sometimes I wish I could go inside your head
To figure out why you said all the things you did
You lead me on I fall behind so fast
I played along my fault I thought it would last

There's no sun in the sky, just stormy weather
I was a fool who didn't know any better
And you said

One swallow doesn't make a summer
I'm on the sidelines and it's not over
Better late than never I'm holding myself together
One swallow doesn't make a summer

I'm getting older and its so hard to tell
Where did we even slip do you know when we fell
In every beginning makes you think about the end
You might look but you won't find me caving in

One swallow doesn't make a summer
I'm on the sidelines and it's not over
Better late than never I'm holding myself together
One swallow doesn't make a summer

So are we just letting go
Sometimes I never know
I'm done with this door I want it closed
Is there anything left to show
Or are we just letting go

One swallow doesn't make a summer
I'm on the sidelines and it's not over
Better late than never I'm holding myself together
One swallow doesn't make a summer
Track Name: A Lifetime
Looking back at all the times we drove down crooked creek at night
There's no doubt in my mind that I'll remember those drives
For a lifetime I'll keep you all around
You get me up when I feel down
And all the times we sat up on the rooftops
Talking about all our favorite nights
Falling off the edge sometimes
The knots on the ceiling seem to be the only eyes watching us

Our bad luck has turned around
We've struck gold in this small town

The moon will follow us home tonight
We've got the front seat on this ride
Nothing seems to be able to slow us down

I'll fast forward years from now
If you're not around we'll catch up somehow
We'll all be holding on yea so tight we're all here for the long ride
Staying up till 4am our favorite songs are on again
Nothing seems to be able to slow us down

Our bad luck has turned around
We've struck gold in this small town

The moon will follow us home tonight
We've got the front seat on this ride
Nothing seems to be able to slow us down

And I'd rather sink than stay afloat because
You don't understand
I'd rather sink than stay afloat with people who don't understand me

Our bad luck has turned around
We've struck gold in this small town

The moon will follow us home tonight
We've got the front seat on this ride
Nothing seems to be able to slow us down
Track Name: Down The Days
She tries holding me back
I stop think fast and react
She sucks me in with her words as I choke and slur
She takes a moment as I begin to tell her
Everything that you've said and written
How I try and I try to forget them
The stories were true all along
And I'll make sure to pass them on

But Im quickly counting down the days
Glancing at old photographs I try to erase

Now you know that I'm the one who's getting away
You've been knocking on my door with no answer
But when I do here's what I'll say

Every time I sit and wonder
Why oh why should we depend on each other
Is it because there is no one else
Then you said you want to take things slowly
And you start to play those games with me
Its impossible to look at you
It brings back all these thoughts and moments

But Im quickly counting down the days
Glancing at old photographs I try to erase

Now you know that I'm the one who's getting away
You've been knocking on my door with no answer
But when I do here's what I'll say
Too little too late now
I want to watch you breakdown
You had the chance to be the one I need
And I gave you away

But I'm quickly counting down the days

Now you know that I'm the one who's getting away
You've been knocking on my door with no answer
But when I do here's what I'll say
Too little too late now
I want to watch you breakdown
You had the chance to be the one I need
And I gave you away
Track Name: Over and Done
With every bone I break
Trying to do things for no one else but me
You should know that your mistakes
Turned me around now I walk the ground heading the right way

You're over and done you've lost everyone
You're finally figuring out its all gone
So don't you forget that thats what you get
When your games start to play you back

You're trying to be the one for me
Face to face I'll tell you how I see it
Bury yourself and your so called feelings
You took this long to find out I'm leaving

Here's to everyone who's falling for her like a setting summer sun
I'll tell them this about you

You're over and done you've lost everyone
You're finally figuring out its all gone
So don't you forget that thats what you get
When your games start to play you back

You're trying to be the one for me
Face to face I'll tell you how I see it
Bury yourself and your so called feelings
You took this long to find out I'm leaving

Face to face back to the basics
Listen up I want you to hear this
Face to face back to the basics
Listen up I don't want you to miss this

You're over and done you've lost everyone
You're finally figuring out its all gone
So don't you forget that thats what you get
When your games start to play you back

You're trying to be the one for me
Face to face I'll tell you how I see it
Bury yourself and your so called feelings
You took this long to find out I'm leaving
Track Name: Dead End
All you do is talk behind my back about my friends
This road has gotten old you're a dead end
I'll press rewind to go back into time
And erase all those memories of mine

Because I'm just finding out
What I need has always been around
I won't be falling down
Here with you

I can't forget
From the beginning to the end
That I never felt the same way
And when I said
It was you that I regret
All I needed were my friends

Take a look around your shoulder
Your head's coming lose you're getting older
I'm still the same I've never changed
I won't rearrange for anything

Because I'm just finding out
What I need has always been around
I won't be falling down
Here with you

I can't forget
From the beginning to the end
That I never felt the same way
And when I said
It was you that I regret
All I needed were my friends
Track Name: So Far, So Good
I'm making long distance phone calls to talk to you
Do me a favor tell me the truth

I've been falling for you more and more
I remember leaving my past and mistakes at your door
I'm open for anything
I'm hoping for something
As long as it can

Help me get out of this slump
Because I've learned my lesson and I've had enough
So far so good and it's finally understood
That when you work on what's behind you
You're no longer a failure

I've been stuck in this lane and you're getting me out
I've been going insane trying to work myself out
I have a few flaws and a head full of doubt
And now I'm running around retracing all of my steps
Trying to figure out exactly what I have left
Someday I'll prove to myself that I need the help
I need someone that can

Help me get out of this slump
Because I've learned my lesson and I've had enough
So far so good and it's finally understood
That when you work on what's behind you

You're no longer a failure

When I opened my eyes I came to realize
It wasn't anything that I would be missing
It wouldn't make a dent or crush me
Just help me out in the long run convince me
That I need something

Help me get out of this slump
Because I've learned my lesson and I've had enough
So far so good and it's finally understood
That when you work on what's behind you
Track Name: My Worst Move
The music stops and I turn around
The tank is empty I'll pull over now
I've been here before but I’m done looking down
What once was lost, should never be found

You're fading out with such little sound
Your voice gets lost in the background
I've been here before but I’m done looking down
What once was lost, should never be found

So won't you tell me how it ends
I don't want this anymore I let my back get burned I wasn't looking for
Something to cause such a mess so fast
And how I'm thinking all about the best and the worst times

Now I'm here to call you out once more
It's time to swallow down your words from before
Now you're left with a picture ripped and torn
So I don't have to see your face anymore

So won't you tell me how it ends
I don't want this anymore I let my back get burned I wasn't looking for
Something to cause such a mess so fast
And how I'm thinking all about the best and the worst times

You always want what you can't have
You're all about the chase and you don't understand

So won't you tell me how it ends
I don't want this anymore I let my back get burned I wasn't looking for
Something to cause such a mess so fast
And how I'm thinking all about the best and the worst times

You always want what you can't have
And you don't understand
