Track Name: What I've Been Doing Lately Is Kickboxing
If we always lived in summer, then we'd never miss the heat
And we could trade our dreaming hearts for a lie we don't believe
Like when you jump to one conclusion
There's only one way to do it right
Well, I don't really know
I can't figure it all out tonight
I've got a fist full of aspirations I can use
To find my way through what's holding me back

You know you're never stuck in one place
And only you can free yourself
Your pen alone rewrites the story that you've only begun to tell

I've spending time following dreams down the backstreets into the street
When the oncoming force of real life was thrust upon me
If we're all just swimming or treading, then we're writhing or sinking
I'd rather choose the one that keeps me moving

You know you're never stuck in one place
And only you can free yourself
Your pen alone rewrites the story that you've only begun to tell

I've been thrown up against the ropes, but I won't give up hope
I won't give in
I'll open my arms to failure because I know I can always get back up again
I saw this coming from a mile away, but I still let the punches hit me
I didn't fight this long just to proceed with what everyone else expects of me

You know you're never stuck in one place
And only you can free yourself
The things that hold you down are held above your head
And you must smash them to the ground
Bite the hand that feeds and walk away and never turn around
When you reach your chosen coast, make sure you write a letter home
That says, "I'm not going to drown."
Track Name: The List
Last night I made a list of all the things I wanted to do but never did
Tomorrow will be one of those days that memories are made of

I've had my share of bad days, but I won't let it get to my head
Because time flies by and the moments we have here are short
Let's make the most of this

Things can't always go your way
You can't always have the perfect day
Tomorrow will be one of those days that memories are made of

I've had my share of bad days, but I won't let it get to my head
Because time flies by and the moments we have here are short
Let's make the most of this

Look up from your watch because time never stops
Look up from your watch because time never stops
Track Name: The Perks of Listening To the Wallflowers
We never thought about it then
We were young and innocent
We always swore we had a plan
But that was thrown against the wind

When I'm not being forced to breathe, you might lie here next to me
If you could see the world I see, what would you think?
What would you say?
And would you understand my one tight-lipped demand?
When you're driving home, would you prefer from one dead end to another?
Could you take just one wrong turn, a leap of faith, one less bridge burned?
It's not what you had planned, but it's what makes you happy
It grows inside our heads and breeds dependency
What will set us free?

We never thought about it then
We were young and innocent
We always swore we had a plan
But that was thrown against the wind

Replace my car's dead battery with hollow bones and idle dreams
In an attempt to make both run a thousand miles an hour
When I'm not being forced to breathe, you might lie here next to me
If you could see the world I see, what would you think?
What would you say?
And would you understand?
And would you understand?
Took one step and crossed the line
Bad intentions turned on a dime
How did things get to be so fucking confusing?
(I'm sorry, I'm not sorry)
You said yourself it's nothing other than loneliness
(It's nothing, it's nothing)

We never thought about it then
We were young and innocent
We always swore we had a plan
But that was thrown against the wind
We never thought about it then
We were young and innocent
We always swore we had a plan
But that was thrown against the wind, and it came back different
Track Name: Something I Need To Get Off My Chest
Don't fucking talk to me with that tone of voice
When you have nothing of use to say
You're just a victim of your own shitty mindset
Your face is all you see
Don't fucking run away when I've turned around
When I'm too busy watching your back
You left me here at the starting line
And you got the best of me
Don't fucking look at me with that judgmental eye
When you tell me who you think I am
I'm just a victim of my first heartache
That still infects my shitty songs

And you, you might think that I am clinging to the past
And you just might be right about that
But I must reflect that what I see are ghosts and friends who stuck around
Alive and well
We're all living in the now
Track Name: Book of Matches
If I found book of matches
If I lit this place on fire
Would you think of all the nights we sat around and time flew by?
Would you stare into the flames now?
And you wonder where it goes
The more that you look to the past, the more that you lose sight of where you are

I've sat up many nights just thinking
How do I move on?
Where did I go wrong?
But it's night like this I realize I've known this all along
I've got to dream a different dream
I've got to sing a different song

If I found book of matches
If I lit this place on fire
Would you think of all the nights we sat around and time flew by?
Would you stare into the flames now?
And you wonder where it goes
The more that you look to the past, the more that you lose sight of where you are

This is the first time that real life has caught up to you
No, you can't always take it slow
Won't be the last time if you can't learn to let go
We all step in rhythm while everybody else is out of time

If I found book of matches
If I lit this place on fire
Would you think of all the nights we sat around and time flew by?
Would you stare into the flames now?
And you wonder where it goes
The more that you look to the past, the more that you lose sight of where you are

You get close enough to touch the flames, and that's when you get burned
When you've spent your whole life waiting, well then what have you learned?
In those cold November nights when you have learned to walk alone
Just keep your eyes upon the path
And don't look back until you've found your way home

If I found book of matches
If I lit this place on fire
Would you think of all the nights we sat around and time flew by?
Would you stare into the flames now?
And you wonder where it goes
The more that you look to the past, the more that you lose sight of where you are
