Track Name: 20 Too Young
I'm just 20 too young, dreaming over nothingness.
Taking your tongue, saying what you never said.
I should just go, leave the bar alone again.
Back to my home, where I become my only friend.

So whoa, would you go, and say what you need to say?
Or lie, baby, try, to get me through another day.

I see you staring, but I know I'm staring more.
I'm over-thinking, but I know better, know better than to take you home.

I'm just 20 too young, dreaming over nothingness.
Taking your tongue, saying what you never said.
I should just go, leave the bar alone again.
Back to my home, where I become my only friend.

So whoa, would you go, and say what you need to say?
Or lie, baby, try, to get me through another day.

I see you staring, but I know I'm staring more.
I'm over-thinking, but I know better, know better than to take you home.

I'm just 20 too young, dreaming over nothingness.
Taking your tongue, saying what you never said.
I should just go, leave the bar alone again.
Back to my home, where I become my only friend.
Track Name: Sheets
So let me get this straight, was there something all along?
Hovering over me, head to feet, clear as day, but hard to reach...
My mind, is all I've left to give.
Drowning in empty thoughts, wars I've fought,
Conveyer belts, and moving down the line.

So let me see this ghost, that blankets over me.
Taking in every feat, a heart that beats,
Anxious breaths, and memories of time...
Are all I've left to see.
Starting in children parks, electric dark,
A sheet of ice, but nothing on my feet.

We're all just humans left behind
A spirit of success, is all we've left to find

We're all just humans left behind
A spirit of success, is all we've left to find
Track Name: Mr. Smith
I love you so, I love you so damn much
That I am close to arrested.
I'm in your palm, I'm in your palm so loose,
But I am dangerously nested.

I let it go, I let my breath run short
'Til my skin's blue as the ocean.
A sudden cold, a sudden sickness,
Covers me and tortures emotion.

And if I wake up in the morning,
To shed another layer of skin,
A new creation, hallelujah
To rid a world of weathered men

And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah

Off in the snow, off in the cold deep snow,
The frostbite covers a notion..
Of better days, of better meaning.
Hope runs thick, at least where we're going.

And if I wake up in the morning,
To shed another layer of skin,
A new creation, hallelujah
To rid a world of weathered men

And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah

And if I wake up in the morning,
To shed another layer of skin,
A new creation, hallelujah
To rid a world of weathered men

And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
And I sing, hallelujah
Track Name: Nashville
I've been thinking 'bout the world I hide beneath my tongue.
A million miles away, a move-in day, she's on the sun.
A place I haven't been, a thicker skin, a war that I cannot win.

I'll be planning out two years from now and losing truth.
A million things I've dreamed and yet to see aren't pulling through.
And as I waste away on other things, they're still not you.

She said, "Let's not talk about a fairytale that we can't live."
But I did

I'm off to Tennessee, the best of me is yet to come.
I need a cleaner slate, a change of fate, before I'm done.
And as I waste away on other things, they're still not won.

She said, "Let's not talk about a fairytale that we can't live."
But I did
Track Name: Don't Hold Me Back
Stones break bones, but words, they keep a man thinking.
When I'm alone, I drown in fear,
But your words, they keep me drinking

And then the Stones, came on the radio
Just like they always do.
And then she said, "Can I have you?"
And I said, "You do."

Is it my heart? Is it my lungs?
I'm drowning inside and you know, dear, that you've won...
This battle, please don't hold me back from what I love.
And even if you're not with me, don't leave.

Stones break bones, but words, they keep a man dreaming.
When I'm alone, I'm all but here,
But your words, they still have meaning.
And then the Stones, came on the radio
Just like they always do.
And then she said, "I ain't got nothing left, got nothing left to lose."

Is it my heart? Is it my lungs?
I'm drowning inside and you know, dear, that you've won...
This battle, please don't hold me back from what I love.
And even if you're not with me,

Is it my heart? Is it my lungs?
I'm drowning inside and you know, dear, that you've won...
This battle, please don't hold me back from what I love.
And even if you're not with me, don't leave.
Track Name: 30
Run away and let it go
Down the only road you've known.
Dream of days stuck in your head.
Fight the demons in your bed.

If I make it 'til I'm 30, I'll wake up.
If I make it 'til I'm 30, I'll see.
Everything I've wanted to break up,
Hiding in the corners from me.

Light it up and burn it out,
Suffocating all your doubt.
Giving up the fear you fought,
Giving back the words you sought.

If I make it 'til I'm 30, I'll wake up.
If I make it 'til I'm 30, I'll see.
Everything I've wanted to break up,
Hiding in the corners from me.

And if I make it 10 more years, I swear I'll let it go.
And if I make it 10 more years, I swear I'll grow.
And if I get you back, my dear, I swear I'll never go.
And if I get you back my dear, I swear I'll grow.

And if I make it 10 more years, I swear I'll let it go.
And if I make it 10 more years, I swear I'll grow.
And if I get you back, my dear, I swear I'll never go.
And if I get you back my dear, I swear I'll grow.
Track Name: Bookshelves
You're the high speed chase, you're the pills that I take.
You're the night on the town, and I'm barely half awake.

You're the rent paid late, you're the Tennessee state.
You're the worst intention to sex on the first date.

And I could be the best for you when I know that you're the worst for me.
And I wish I could get to you, but I'm barely gonna get to me.
I'm barely gonna get to me.
I'm barely gonna get to me.
I'm barely gonna get to me.
