Track Name: Streetlights
Streetlights, in the carpark
Where we met
A cold night, but I had December
When our eyes met

And suddenly
My head's up in the clouds
And the ground can't even touch my feet
For the first time in my life there's no ifs, buts, or maybes
It'll be always you and I
Me and you, you and me, oh can't you see?

I
Think that I might just be falling for
You
And now I'm in a place where I know it's for sure

What I've said, well it makes me nervous
Cause I can't take it back
Thoughts in my head, I ain't usually like this
But you make me feel like glass

I don't know
If it's okay for me to say that I miss you yet
But it's crazy when I see you all the feelings I get
It'll be always you and I
Me and you, you and me, oh can't you see?

I
Think that I might just be falling for
You
And now I'm in a place where I know it's for sure

All my life I've dreamed
That one day my life could be
The way I see in front of me
Now it's real, so real

I
Think that I might just be falling for
You
And now I'm in a place where I know it's for sure
Track Name: Well, This Is Awkward (A Capella Version)
Well I had that dream again last night
The one featuring you
With the tea leaves steeped in misunderstanding
A terse exchange as we sip on something
More than simple conversation and quiet pleasantries
The time to let it go had come for me

But all that I can see is you
And after all, there's no other place to fall
When all that I can see is you

You will always be the one who slipped away amongst the breeze
Which covers us in whispered threads
Of words we kept as thoughts instead
You fidget in your seat, I shift uncomfortably in mine
I wish I'd kept my sentiments inside

But all that I can see is you
And after all, there's no other place to fall
When all that I can see is you

It's time for me to learn
To fall out of you

But all that I can see is you
And after all, there's no other place to fall
When all that I can see is you
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'm screaming inside
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: 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 til 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’
But I knew it was wrong,
And now she got me runnin’

Pre-chorus:
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

Chorus:
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
