Track Name: The Last Song I'll Ever Write About You
I’m having trouble
Keeping my mind from you lately
All my shots turn into doubles
Till in the bottom of my glass I see your face

Why? Oh why?
One of these days I’m gonna get through a day without wanting to call you
Why? Oh why?
I’m thinkin’ it’s time for me to get movin’ on
So this is gonna be the last song

This is the last song that I’ll ever write about you x2
I don’t wanna love you no more baby
Cut myself free with the words I’m singin’
This is the last song that I’ll ever write about you

The sun shines bright and I feel fine
But then sundown comes around
And the red in the sky matches the red in my eyes, they never dry
I’m still sleeping on my side of the bed at night

Why? Oh why?
One of these days I’m gonna get through a day without wanting to call you
Why? Oh why?
I’m thinkin’ it’s time for me to get movin’ on
So this is gonna be the last song

This is the last song that I’ll ever write about you x2
I don’t wanna love you no more baby
Cut myself free with the words I’m singin’
This is the last song that I’ll ever write about you
Track Name: This Is Really It
This is really it, got my ticket in my hand, gate 10
Our world is gonna change when my feet leave the ground and I’m on the plane
This is really it, the moment you and I are no longer we,
And the two of us come to terms with beginning again separately
This is really it

But what if I’m not ready?
What if I’m not ready?

This is really it, you know I can’t love you no more
Even though I don’t know how to fill the space in my arms where you were before
So this is really it, how can you look at me and say “It’s okay?”
When you know my heart will never beat against yours at night again?
This is really it

But what if I’m not ready?
What if I’m not ready?

You were the one for me
Now who will I be to you?
You were the one for me
So who will I be to you?
All my thoughts are consumed by your face
Am I ever gonna forget?
Did you know
It would be this hard?

Your picture in my wallet will fade
Your perfume on my shirt will evaporate
The blue will slowly leave my eyes
As the end begins to crystallise,
But until then
What am I supposed to do?
What am I supposed to do?
If I can’t keep you?

You were the one for me
Now who will I be to you?
You were the one for me
So who will I be to you?
All my thoughts are consumed by your face
Am I ever gonna forget?
Did you know
It would be this hard?
Track Name: How To Be Alone
She hit me like summer rain
So sudden and heavy
I was caught in the downpour
And it soaked me to the skin
She hit me like a freight train
Never saw it comin’
Had my heart knocked around,
And now she got me runnin’

Maybe I fall too easy
And maybe I fall too fast
And maybe I do, or maybe I don’t
And maybe I will or I won’t

But maybe I
I just don’t know how to be on my own
Time rolls by
And my restlessness it only grows
And late at night
Maybe I just need somebody to hold
Oh, won’t somebody teach me
How the hell to be alone?

Is it wrong for me to feel wrong
When I got nobody to miss?
I thought that I was stronger,
Stronger than to feel like this
And I don’t know if I need her
Or just somebody new
To fill the hole in my soul,
That used to be filled by you

Maybe I fall too easy
And maybe I fall too fast
And maybe I do, or maybe I don’t
And maybe I will or I won’t

But maybe I
I just don’t know how to be alone
Time rolls by
And my restlessness it only grows
And late at night
Maybe I just need somebody to hold
Oh, won’t somebody teach me
How the hell to be alone?
Track Name: September
Another year and I still can't get to sleep
It's starting to hit me now my youth ain't gon repeat, yeah
Look in the mirror and I wonder what it's there for
It just reminds me that I don't know who I am anymore

I'm treading water

Oh, September, tell me where do I go?
Can someone prove to me that I'm not alone?
Oh, September, tell me what do I do?
Why don't I feel like I'm living it like I should?
I should

Everybody's just waiting on a plane
To carry them off to their new chapters, their new days
I ain’t content
This ain't the way
I want it to align
Why am I the one to still be trapped inside my mind

I'm treading water

Oh, September, tell me where do I go?
Can someone prove to me that I'm not alone?
Oh, September, tell me what do I do?
Why don't I feel like I'm living it like I should?
I should
Track Name: How Long, Boston
I've wandered your streets at night
Caught up in the glimmer of your city lights
My breath fogs the window as I ride the train
And I wonder aloud who I will be today

But the smell of the rain, well it ain’t quite the same
And the sun, it don’t warm me in quite the same way
Boston
Oh, Boston

How long till you feel like home?
Whoooaaaaaoaoaoaooaooaoaaaooo
How long must I feel alone?
Whoooaoaaaaoaoaoaoaoaoaooooaaao
Oh I wanna know
How long till you feel like home?

My suitcase was heavy with hope
My bags full of dreams that catch in my throat
My bedroom has asked since the day I arrived
Whether or not this will ever feel right

Because the smell of the rain, it ain’t quite the same
And the sun, it don’t warm me in quite the same way
Boston
Oh, Boston

How long till you feel like home?
Whoooaaaaaoaoaoaooaooaoaaaooo
How long must I feel alone?
Whoooaoaaaaskjdfhkjadsbfjhbasdflieabdnbfad
I wanna know
How long till you feel like home?
Track Name: For F**k's Sake (I Used To Know You)
I used to know you
But now I don't
I used to love you
But now I don't
I can't so I don't

Who steals your peace in the night
When you stare up at the ceiling
Whose is the voice in your mind
I wanna know but would it be right?

Are you wondering
The same things as me
Or do you wake up free, and use your lungs to breathe
The knowledge you're no longer with me

I used to know you
But now I don't
I used to love you
But now I don't
I can't so I don't

Think back to when I knew
The creases around your eyes
How your chest would fall and rise
As your breath became my sigh

And the lines
The lines on your palms
I read between them
And found the road map to your heart

I used to know you
But now I don't
I used to love you
I thought I used to love you
But now I know better
Because I still do
