Track Name: Introduction
This is an open party, Everyone can sing along
Where every day’s a weekend, chillax and get along
We won’t charge at the door, cause we came to get down
So fill up those cups, no need to keep it down.
No need to keep it down
Track Name: Heman Woman Haters
She’s counting summer by the fireflies
And I know that
She only calls when it’s late, past midnight
I’ll never forget the blue in your eyes
Or your crooked smile and every lie
So let’s make amends for the choices we both made
At first this was killing me but I’m learning from my mistakes
And if you want to call it quits I can understand that too
Cause if you’re happy going nowhere well I guess I won’t see you
Get back retract this girl’s a waste of time
She’s feeding you lies and changing her mind
Slow down this fire’s getting out of control
Scorching every heart that she can hold
Go get what you want but take a piece of me
Cause your world is going to crumble
And make you believe that the people you’ve burned through
Will never take you back cause you’re selfishly happy
And there’s something wrong with that
Get back retract this girl’s a waste of time
She’s feeding you lies and changing her mind
Slow down this fire’s getting out of control
Scorching every heart that she can hold
She’s counting summer by the fireflies
She only calls when it’s past midnight
And I’ll never forget her face
And the things that put her into place
And now I’ve come to see that you were never right for me
Cause you’re screaming on tables, and no one’s listening.
Track Name: Hold Your Tongue
She spills her heart out wasted on the phone
I’ve got the keys cause I’m ready to go
Whenever, wherever she goes

And maybe things are getting better
I could use the company
And her smile gets better with the weather
And in the summer it’s easy to see

So hold your breath
Cause she’ll make you stop breathing
And hold your tongue
She’s taken the season

And you will always be 16
Within my memories

So hold your tongue and stop making excuses
Cause it was useless
And I know it was wrong
But I was the one to apologize
And I know I heard it a thousand times


And if we could go from the start
When I made the part
And I’m feeling the progress
Because your face is fading
And the summer’s dark

The weather’s changing again

She spills her heart out wasted on the phone
I’ve got the keys in my hands cause I’m ready to go
Whenever, wherever she goes

And maybe things are getting better
But then they’re falling apart at the seams
And your smile gets better with the weather
And in the summer it’s easy to see

So hold your breath
She’ll make you stop breathing
And take your time
She’s taken the season

And you will always be 16
Within my memories
But we’re starting to grow up and changing it seems
It’s embarrassing

So hold your breath
She’ll make you stop breathing
And take your time
She’s taken the season
Track Name: Untitled (Call All The Shots)
Call all the shots breathe a bit faster
Count all the eyes and swim in disaster
Forget the love cause this ain’t a romance
You had your chance but I’m glad that you’ve blown it
This year is winding down
This place is getting old
And when you look back in life your find yourself at old
So pick yourself back up
And give a helping hand
Cause karma’s coming back and it’s taking a stand
And I wrote all my wrongs down
Clear minded and I’m thinking clearer now
But you can put the blame on me
You’re so selfish. Way to give it up baby
And if you need to call it quits
Then be the coward and throw the towel in
Cause I’m here to make some memories
I put all my faith in my dreams
Call all the shots breathe a bit faster
Count all the eyes and swim in disaster
This ain’t love it’s a broken romance
You had your chance but I’m glad that you’ve blown it
So this is what it is you find yourself there now
And is see that you’re finding out you’re just a coward now
And everything’s okay, well you make it seem to be
But if you had to say, that you aren’t happy
And I wrote all my wrongs down
Clean minded and I’m seeing clearer now
So you can put the blame on me
You’re so selfish, way to give it up baby
And if you need to call it quits
Then be the coward and throw the towel in
I need to make some memories
And I put my faith in dreams
Call it a landslide now.
Like they’ve got your back
AGAINST THE WALL
STAND UP TALL
You’ve got the power to
MOVE THEM ALL
Call all the shots breathe a bit faster
Count all the eyes and swim in disaster
Forget it all cause this ain’t a romance
You had your shot but I’m glad that you’ve blown it
Track Name: Party Song
Woke up and told myself never again
With the after taste of liquor and a strange girl in my bed
I can only wonder what happened last night
Cause my memory is hazy but I guess I’m doing alright
Getting drunk on the weekends
GETTING FUCKED UP WITH MY BEST FRIENDS
It was a wild night I’m sure
With the music playing loud and kids dropping to the floor
Getting back up and drinking some more
I’ve got the spins now but who’s next on beer pong
Getting drunk on the weekends
GETTING FUCKED UP WITH MY BEST FRIENDS
This goes to the girls that remember my night
For taking thousands of photographs to prove the party was tight
I can’t wait to do it again
Don’t mind the hangover come drink with my friends
Track Name: Taking Control
Where you at when you wanna leave this town
No looking back it’s ahead we’re going now
So pack your bags and head for the stars
Put the car in gear cause we’re ready to go
These aren’t just dreams cause they’re taking control
So buckle up and hit overdrive
We’ll keep singing like it’s the last time
You’ll never live it up when you live it down
My mind says “can we clean up mess”
These are the pieces that are just breaking it
Cause I know that I was a fool for far too long for me to get to the top
I see that that we can grow apart
But this tiny town is tearing us apart
And I know that it would be better when I’m leaving this weather
And I’m never coming back in style
You’ve called all the shots now you’re the one to blame
You left the pieces and you left them to shame
Your name is tattered and it’s falling apart
All the friends you have
Won’t fill the void in your heart
Track Name: Cherry Cola
Wake up and sit back with reality no matter
All of the things I do
It wasn’t supposed to end up like this
But you must enjoy tearing me apart
So stop saying it’s over when it’s over
I know, I wrote the letter and addressed it and sent the flowers
Directly to your front door.
And stop expecting like you want me to change
Cause I’m growing up but I feel the same
And if you keep on putting the pressure then someday I will break
So let’s pretend like you never really cared cause you never really cared at all
And all of the verses that I could write now wouldn’t change a thing at all
And when I told you that I was leaving well I’m not kidding cause you can’t take a joke
So now I’m moving on without and the pages in your book
So stop saying it’s over when it’s over
I know, I wrote the letter and addressed it and sent the flowers
Directly to your front door.
And stop expecting like you want me to change
Cause I’m growing up but I feel the same
I’m trying to keep my head above the water
But the tide keeps rolling deep
So that’s where you’ll find me
Underneath it all
You’ve got me swimming with the fishes it’s broken
Under the weight of it all
SO CALL ME BACK IF YOU WANT TO
BUT ALL YOU’RE GONNA HEAR’S A DIAL TONE
CAUSE I FORGOT YOUR FACE ALREADY
AND YOUR PICTURES ARE STARTING TO BURN
And I’ve got an ego
That doesn’t know when to stop
Cause I’ll climb this mountain
And keep on looking towards the top
I’m trying to keep my head above the water
But the tide keeps rolling deep
So that’s where you’ll find me
Underneath it all
You’ve got me swimming with the fishes it’s broken
Under the weight of it all
Track Name: Canadian Tuxedo (All Denim)
She smokes a pack a day
To pass the time a way
This routine is getting old
She’s in a daydream daze
Fills her with stomach pains
It’s hard to see her going nowhere fast
She holds the moment slowly lets it pass
And I cant save here.
She’s trying to find the reasons to stay
And holding me hostage as her getaway
I’ll keep the secrets where the wild things go
But you’ve changed forever now it’s time to let go
You’ve got me tangled up but that’s not enough
You’ve got me lying for you too
I’ve road a million miles just to make you smile
I wonder what it’s like when I am gone
Do you hear the silence holding out my own?
But I’d like to hear your voice.
She’s trying to find the reasons to stay
And holding me hostage as her getaway
I’ll keep the secrets where the wild things go
But you’ve changed forever now it’s time to let go
just pretend and smile I know it’s been a while you’ve been planning it all through
and it’s so hard to say we’ll go our separate ways
with all the years that we put wasted falling for you
will you ever hear me screaming out to you
I guess it’s over
She’s trying to find the reasons to stay
Holding me hostage
Just another night in town
You’ve got me running circles up and down the block
I forgot it it all but now I’m standing on top
She’s trying to find the reasons to stay
And holding me hostage as her getaway
I’ll keep the secrets where the wild things go
But you’ve changed forever now it’s time to let go
Track Name: The Lost Boys
She shows me the signs
And I’ll give her the time
But on paper it’s simply impossible
And when the pieces start to fall
I know that I can count on my friends
They’ll help me get my life back in order
Or sorta cause it’s like a rollercoaster adventure
Filled with ups and downs
But they’ll stand by my side
You’ve burned all your bridges down
Well who are you going to call now?
Cause I get all my love and support
From my friends and family
Just stop making excuses for your loneliness
Because you brought this on your self
When are you going to grow up?
I say maybe never
Because we’re all going to
STAY YOUNG AT HEART
And this ain’t the last time that you’ll see me
Just believe me cause some day
You’ll find this was the
PLAN FROM THE START
When your smile’s broken
And you start choking on your words
Don’t expect to call on me
And I’ll be okay because I’m always moving on
In a new direction
Even the rain can’t bring me down
When are you going to grow up?
I say maybe never
Because we’re all going to
STAY YOUNG AT HEART
And this ain’t the last time that you’ll see me
Just believe me cause some day
You’ll find this was the
PLAN FROM THE START
I know I can count on my friends
They’ll help me through the end
They say that these are the best days of my life
And it all STARTS TONIGHT
