Track Name: Anchors
Maybe this tour wouldn’t seem so short-lived
If I had someone to come home to, but I don’t
You can’t hid behind those big blue eyes
Your crooked smile, or all the lies
The things you did, we all saw through
You thought you were smooth
But we all knew

I can’t help that I don’t like Bright Eyes
(I want a lover I don’t have to love)
Or that you hate New Found Glory
(you insist to pull me down)
I guess that should have been a sign from the start
That you weren’t the right girl for me

Another week means another song, another lyric daily
Broken hearts and brand new starts are all I think about lately
And I know one day our paths will cross
You’ll be on his arm it’ll bring back all the thoughts

I can’t help that I don’t like Bright Eyes
(I want a lover I don’t have to love)
Or that you hate New Found Glory
(you insist to pull me down)
I guess that should have been a sign from the start
That you weren’t the right girl for me

These matching tattoos aren’t even worth the ink
It’s easy to see that this anchor has made me sink

I can’t help that I don’t like Bright Eyes
(I want a lover I don’t have to love)
Or that you hate New Found Glory
(you insist to pull me down)
I guess that should have been a sign from the start
That you weren’t the right girl for me
Track Name: Thanks For Nothing
It strikes as odd that the hardest things to say
are what mean the most at the end of the day
for every high there was always a low
you've been here and although
it may not seem like something to you
it's that something that got me through

can't put a price on the memories made
but time changes and people tend to fade away
with no effort you've always been there
helping me through and going no where

I'll sing the words I can't say (you're nothing would mend my everything)
With hopes you'll hear them some day
and know I'd change so much
and do things different if I could just have you here

I spent the best years of my life
with only you by my side
foolish pride and bad decisions
destroyed something I didn't know I had

I'm thankful for every moment spent with you
so disappointed that I didn't see it through
I didn't treat you how you should be treated
and now I'm left broken and defeated

can't put a price on the memories made
but time changes and people tend to fade away
with no effort you've always been there
helping me through and going no where

I'll sing the words I can't say (you're nothing would mend my everything)
With hopes you'll hear them some day
and know I'd change so much
and do things different if I could just have you here

so thanks for nothing, thanks for everything
thanks, thanks for nothing
Track Name: Second to None
I can’t really say I thought I knew
What I didn’t do
And what made you
Decide that we were through

Maybe you thought that I would stick around
And try harder to be someone that I am not
But I wasn’t good enough for you then
And I am too good now
(You’re still too good now)

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
If you called now I would run
I was second best to you
When I held you second to none

Happiness? No choice but apathy
Why did I feel for you what you didn’t feel for me?
All I want to do is not give a fuck
I tried so hard and it sucks

I still don’t understand what I did so wrong
And that he did so right
My comprehension doesn’t matter
When he’s the one that’s holding you tight

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
If you called now I would run
I was second best to you
When I held you second to none

I can only hope that one day you’ll realize all I wanted to be
Was everything you need

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
If you called now I would run
I was second best to you
When I held you second to none
Track Name: Means to an End
Looking back on the past I can’t help but wonder
What happened to those times we said that we’d always remember?
Been through hell and back, all together
And now you’re nothing but another stranger

You can’t ask for help if you won’t help yourself
Wasting time has never been good for your health
So you move on and I guess so will I
But in the end, I’m the one who tried

After this long I thought the pieces would mend
But I wouldn’t break and you wouldn’t bend
Maybe one day I’ll reach out to you again
But for now take this as my means to an end

Words from your mouth spilled out onto the ground
Easy to see that they’re meaningless now
As worthless as the clarity found
All those nights we spent just driving around

After this long I thought the pieces would mend
But I wouldn’t break and you wouldn’t bend
Maybe one day I’ll reach out to you again
But for now take this as my means to an end

I reached out and tried to patch things up
And you pushed me away like someone you can’t trust
Egos can really fuck things up
So I drew a hard line and said enough is enough

After this long I thought the pieces would mend
But I wouldn’t break and you wouldn’t bend
Track Name: No Place Like Home
The best days we’ve ever seen
Have been spent broke and hungry with no place to sleep
It may be hard for our friends and family to see
But there’s no place that I’d rather be

Days never seem to end when you’re waiting at home
Counting down the seconds til you’re on the road
It doesn’t matter where we end up or go
On the stage is the only place you’ll find me saying
There’s no place like home, NO PLACE LIKE HOME

And now I look back and it’s hard to see how
I never took a dive or even a bow
And this is what we’re about
And we’re not stopping now

Days never seem to end when you’re waiting at home
Counting down the seconds til you’re on the road
It doesn’t matter where we end up or go
On the stage is the only place you’ll find me saying
There’s no place like home, NO PLACE LIKE HOME

With no money we’ll somehow make it through
All these sleepless nights still thinking about you

With no money to spend we’ll somehow make it through
All these sleepless nights that I’ve spent thinking of you
