Pacing back and forth I don't want to go to war I can feel the cold I forgot to bring a coat Wishing you would call me back Just to break the wind again You've left me to feel alone From the bottom of my heart I'll run away I'll take my time and erase your name I'll read between the lines I'll take what's yours and mine And I will throw it all away And you're to blame All the tears I've led All the towels that have bled All the floors I've feared For you to leave me just this year I don't want you to go I scream your name beyond the road What's it like to be alone From the bottom of my heart I'll run away I'll take my time and erase your name I'll read between the lines I'll take what's yours and mine And I will throw it all away And you're to blame

Faux 04:12
Numb the pain, I've let my teeth decay I guess I'll wash my mouth out with some Tanqeuray I look at postcards of memories I can't afford to make Silhouettes upon a lonesome bridge I open up the door, there's nothing in the fridge Besides a box of lies in which I can't afford to fucking reminisce What is this Faux emotion Threw my phone out into the ocean Kept it folded and sealed the garden Withered flowers locked inside my closet Dishonest Shed a tear and get me out of here I guess it's not as simple as it may appear I look at songs I wrote when I was too young to know fear Daydream of a point in time I've lost The miracle I wished for, never knew the cost I throw my faults over the lines I know I've crossed upon I guess it's Faux emotion Threw my phone out into the ocean Kept it folded and sealed the garden Withered flowers locked inside my closet Dishonest

Realization 02:23
Metronome, my only friend The one who keeps me on the track I take my time, and yet I still can't hit my notes I sing away, I write my lines I let the music become mine And yet I freeze, I wonder if I've lost control I wonder if I took too long (I wonder why I write this song) I wonder if I took too long The record spins and I wish it would stop I wish I could fight it off We're just diamonds in the rough I hope you hear the love I show I wish you would steal my dreams For you to burst right at the seams I don't want to fight alone

Poem 03:58
Sometimes I walk upon dandelion seeds That grow in the vast forest I roam upon And yet, somehow, some way, all I do is bleed Under the ever-blinding rays of the sun Who am I, and where did all of the time go? A bittersweet taste, the fruits of my labor The grass remains green, but my hair's yet to grow Someone told me that you would be my savior My vision begins to turn to pitch black But never my undying sorrow Memories I'll never get back Can I please see tomorrow? All I need to know is Where did you go?
5.
I don't have much going on I think I worry a bit too much I should go easy on myself What's the point of make believe? You can have me when you please I'll put your postcard on the shelf Hold onto me I'll take the lead Oh, can't you see? You're all I need What's the point of being numb? Your name is stuck here on my tongue You know I miss you when you're gone Lately Wear my heart here on my sleeve Painting pictures in my dreams And every second you're with me Always playing make believe Hold onto me I'll take the lead Oh, can't you see? You're all I need
