Track Name: Run Along
Just keep on saying it till you make it true
Cause we’re all counting on you
The party ain’t over til the bottles done
Won’t stop til the mascara runs

And if you feel inclined to speak
You crossed over your talk is cheap
Just keep on waiting til the morning comes
Til the sunrise burns you up

You’ve taken everything so go on (go on)
Run along (run along)
Cause you, you left me with nothing at all

Quit acting like theres a target on your back
when youre standing in the line of fire
youre playing everyone
but we’ve always know you as a liar

And if you feel inclined to speak
You crossed over your talk is cheap
Just keep on waiting til the morning comes
Til the sunrise burns you up

You’ve taken everything so go on (go on)
Run along (run along)
Cause you, you left me with nothing at all

And now I’m starting to see
The way you treat present company
You write their name in the dirt
But when theyre gone you’re the one that’s hurt

And if you feel inclined to speak
You crossed over your talk is cheap
Just keep on waiting til the morning comes
Til the sunrise burns you up

And if you face the truth
Then I’ve got some news for you

You’ve taken everything so go on (go on)
Run along (run along)
Cause you, you left me with nothing at all

You can’t go back from where you came
You point the finger but hold the blame
Those bridged burned long ago
The truth hurts, but now you know.
Track Name: Postcards
I’m counting down the miles
That are minutes
I’m stuck in them
But I’ll never feel alone (never feel alone)

I’m flipping through the pages
Of the places that you and I
Will always call home (always call home)

And it’s a little bit longer than last year
That’s what you said to me
Post cards of all the places
That you always wanted to be
24 hours til we’re gone and on the road
You’re the first person I’ll share my stories with
When I get home

I keep missing the best part of you (the best part of you)
And if you find yourself lonely
Then hold these postcards closer to you. (closer to you)

We’re packed in a van getting lost out on the road
You’ll always be the direction that I want to go
So when you wake up will you be there with me?
Cause when I close my eyes, you’re the only one I see.

This isn’t the best situation, I know that it rings true
Cause late calls and text messages aren’t enough for you
Cause your face is always on my mind,
I’m counting down the minutes til I leave this town behind

I keep missing the best part of you (the best part of you)
And if you find yourself lonely
Then hold these words closer to you. (closer to you)
Track Name: Morven Park
Days form from hours and turn in to weeks
But please be considerate that I cannot sleep
So go on, I’ll be better without you

Live with regret that will haunt you in your dreams
And pay for the damage that you’ve done to me
Cause I can promise that you’ll be missing me

I’m taking the long way home
through street lights and lamp posts
I know this drive seems longer to me
But with time I’ll let you go

Taking West Market instead of through streets
It’s crazy to me how you sold me so cheap
So go on, I’ll be better without you
It’s funny to me all the similarities,
The sound of his name and what they call me
But I can promise you’ll be missing me.

I’m taking the long way home
through street lights and lamp posts
I know this drive seems longer to me
But with time I’ll let you go

Not long ago these streets were ours
You were everything to me
And now I’m struggling so hard
To find meaning in anything
(I’m taking the long way home)

I’m taking the long way home
through street lights and lamp posts
I know this drive seems longer to me
But with time I’ll let you go
Track Name: Time to Talk
It’s too late for me to change
These permanent marks that will never fade
You can dress me up but I’m still the same
So I’m done with you and all your games

They just want what’s best for you
But it’s the 9-5 that I can’t do
We’ll put our degrees up on the wall
Collecting dust until they fall

And I’ll never change my point of view
Cause I feel the same as I used to
So cross your eyes and stare me down
Cause I’m not your king and I won’t wear your crown

So go on stay cold hearted, calm, and collected
Cause the fear is running through your veins

This isn’t the best time to talk about it
Cause you’ve burned yourself and everyone around it

I’m fine with being me
My mind is strong and yours is weak
You can change your words and still not speak
Playing on every heart beat

I can’t keep waiting on every move
For you and I to come to
The point of no return
I’m sure one day you will learn

I’m letting you know
Just how easy it is to let you go.
Track Name: Out Alive
Another wake up call
Filled with alcohol and cheap champagne
I’m trying my best searching just to feel something

I’m not saying that it’s your fault
Cause it’s entirely mine
I keep pushing myself forward just to fall behind
Wrong turns and bad decisions are what we’ll make
Cause our biggest mistakes we face are what will make us great

This is an open invitation to say what’s on your mind
So put your best foot forward and leave nothing behind

When you’re wasting away waiting on your second chances
Save your antics for another day
I’m not saying that it’s your fault
Cause it’s entirely mine
I keep pushing myself forward just to fall behind
Wrong turns and bad decisions are what we’ll make
Cause our biggest mistakes we face are what will make us great

We’re not saying that we’ll make it out alive
But we’ll never know if we never try
I’m swinging for the fences and striking out again
I’m caught in your confusion while you play us off as friends
We’re waiting to know how long it takes for your true colors to show

I’m not saying that it’s your fault
Cause it’s entirely mine
I keep pushing myself forward just to fall behind
Wrong turns and bad decisions are what we’ll make
Cause our biggest mistakes we face are what will make us great

This is an open invitation to say what’s on your mind
So put your best foot forward and leave nothing behind

We’re not saying that we’ll make it out alive
But we’ll never know if we never try
