Moving On 03:28
You're only smiling when you're stepping on my toes, throwing your elbows Trying to oppose everything I do with or without you I've been bending over backwards to keep you happy by my side So sick of breaking my fingers to keep you hooked on every line This is for all the lies, every time, "cause you said so" You've got every right to shut your mouth and listen close You're only smiling when you're stepping on my toes, throwing your elbows Trying to oppose everything I do with or without you I'm getting tired of begging for more love I'll never be enough to make you want to stand up and clap your hands You had your chance, I'm moving on You keep telling me there's nothing wrong, but every time I turn around You're talking shit, I don't want any more of it Should have seen it all along This is for all the lies, every time "cause I said so" You've got every right to shut your mouth and listen close You're only smiling when you're stepping on my toes, throwing your elbows Trying to oppose everything I do with or without you I'm getting tired of begging for more love I'll never be enough to make you want to stand up and clap your hands You had your chance, I'm moving on This is your wake-up call, we could have had it all From here on, if you fall, I won't be there to catch you This is your wake-up call, we could have had it all From here on, if you fall, I won't catch you You're only smiling when you're stepping on my toes, throwing your elbows Trying to oppose everything I do with or without you You're only smiling when you're stepping on my toes, throwing your elbows Trying to oppose everything I do with or without you I'm getting tired of begging for more love I'll never be enough to make you want to stand up and clap your hands You had your chance, I'm moving on I'm moving on

September 03:31
It’s been getting hard to shut my eyes Let alone fall asleep at night Thinking about the things you used to say And everything I used to take for granted Like the way we laughed and how we cried You caught my eye like the Northern Lights Ain’t it funny how we ended up this way? Your words surround me, fill me up And remind me I’m not enough That you need more than my love To make you happy So say that I’ll never change Does it make you feel any better to know my love never weathered? You’ve been raining like an April day September, you don’t have to cry It’s not like I died You just gave up on me It’s me again, can we skip the “how you been”s? And get down to honest speaking I miss the way you called my name How your hair covered my face And the way you used to Oh, I miss how you used to Serenade me, hold me up From the right side of my car Looking past all of my flaws Said it was the scars that made me tough Now your words surround me, fill me up And remind me I’m not enough That you need more than my love To make you happy So say that I’ll never change Does it make you feel any better to know my love never weathered? You’ve been raining like an April day September, you don’t have to cry It’s not like I died You just gave up on me You only love me when I’m miserable You only love to walk away You like me better when I’m lonely But I still loved you all the same So say that I’ll never change Does it make you feel any better to know my love never weathered? You’ve been raining like an April day September, you don’t have to cry It’s not like I died So say that I’ll never change Does it make you feel any better to know my love never weathered? You’ve been raining like an April day September, you don’t have to cry It’s not like I died You just gave up on me

Lobotomy 03:08
I've been feeling like shit, no surprise it's all because of you I hope you get off me barely getting by So go ahead and spin it like I'm the one who ruined your life It's easier if you make me the bad guy I heard them call you, op room 309 When you cut me open, what did you find? A broken heart, love, a couple times And I've been spending hours under bright lights As you shift around my insides While you're up there, my head's all yours for the night Let's not waste our time, so let me say what I came to say You think that there's a problem with my brain You're an expert, aren't you? At only pointing out what's wrong with me Make this dramatic, make it a lobotomy Cleanup needed, op room 309 When you cut me open, what did you find? A broken heart, love, a couple times And I've been spending hours under bright lights As you shift around my insides While you're up there, my head's all yours You said I'm always the same, I didn't ask you to change I only wanted to lie around with you and waste my days You couldn't save me, I didn't want to be saved But tell yourself whatever if you think that makes you brave When you cut me open, what did you find? I think you broke my heart, love, a couple hundred times And I will spend these hours under bright lights As you shift around my insides While you're up there, make sure I'm yours every night

Heads Down 03:38
She's a city girl, what could she ever want from me? She wants to save the world I think that's a beautiful thing to do I think she's beautiful too Doctor, doctor, give me a sign My chest hurts, are you sure I'll be fine? Is it heartbreak, the kind that leaves a scar for life? Someone help me, it feels like I'm on fire I'm a penny dropped from the Sears Tower Falling for you, but destined to hit the ground I'm falling heads down She loves city life, she's the big apple of my eye She's bright like the city lights And when you asked me if I like the view You caught me looking at you Doctor, doctor, give me a sign My chest hurts, are you sure I'll be fine? Is it heartbreak, the kind that leaves a scar for life? Someone help me, it feels like I'm on fire I'm a penny dropped from the Sears Tower Falling for you, but destined to hit the ground I'm falling heads down Heads, you win, tails, I lose The shadows in my photo bleached eyes all look like you If this is losing sight, maybe I did something right Cursed me to see what was in front of me the whole time Doctor, doctor, give me a sign My chest hurts, are you sure I'll be fine? Is it heartbreak, the kind that leaves a scar for life? Someone help me, it feels like I'm on fire I'm a penny dropped from the Sears Tower Falling for you, but destined to hit the ground I'm falling heads down

This place is nothing like the fairy tales These people thrive off broken dreams Can you help me find a way out? I don't want to settle into their routine 'Cause all this work and no play is making me a dull boy I'd rather throw it all away and become another lost boy So click your heels three times, 'cause there's no place like home We were carried by a perfect storm We're not in Kansas anymore Grab my hand and pull, there's no place I won't go As long as it's you and me Getting lost inside emerald cities You never thought you'd grow up this fast Following yellow brick road paths You found a place only dreams reach Find something to hold and never let it go It seems so sweet, being here is being free So click your heels three times, 'cause there's no place like home We were carried by a perfect storm We're not in Kansas anymore Grab my hand and pull, there's no place I won't go As long as it's you and me Getting lost inside every Winding road paved with golden stones Good intentions fed our young ambitions Where do we go? From here on out, we're on our own And I'm not going back So click your heels three times, 'cause there's no place like home We were carried by a perfect storm We're not in Kansas anymore Grab my hand and pull, there's no place I won't go As long as it's you and me Getting lost inside emerald cities This place is nothing like the fairy tales These people thrive off broken dreams Can you help me find a way out? As long as it's you and me Getting lost inside emerald cities

Remember 04:02
I, I'm not as strong as I'd like to be Nothing in this world comes for free except the love you gave to me And I, I got this feeling I can't fight Like something just doesn't seem right I can see it in your eyes Swimming like oceans, wish I could control it How am I supposed to watch you leave? Did you let go or get your chance at something better? I'm losing hope, but I think I'm losing you faster I, I'm not so sure who I want to be I used to be sure of everything, but that was when you were still here And I, I'm not too sure how far I'll go But if I burned out tomorrow, would you still be proud of me? Swimming through oceans, wish I could control them How was I supposed to watch you leave? Did you let go or get your chance at something better? I'm losing hope, but I think I'm losing you faster And I don't wanna say goodnight or goodbye At least not tonight But if you go, I promise on my life that I'll remember Funny how the ones we love don't rise over the weekend But they'll believe it if it's written down Even when I'm not down and out, I've asked for help But it never came Did you let go or get your chance at something better? I'm losing hope, but I think I'm losing you faster When you let go, I hope you got your something better I lost my hope, but I think that I lost you faster I didn't wanna say goodnight or goodbye At least not that night But since you're gone, I promise on my life that I'll remember
