Track Name: The Way You Do
you know i can hardly stand
the things you say
like when you say
i'll never mean that much to you

no planes to the mountains
no parades or even
a good morning from across the room
where i fell in love with you

and it hurts
but i'll be okay
and it hurts
but it works this way
i'd find someone else
if i knew me the way you do

i could cut my hair wear jeans
and talk about the things you like
it's never enough
to lie for you

maybe perhaps possibly
oh we'll see yeah right
i'm just too complicated
you don't need a mess like me

does it hurt
yeah i'll be okay
and it hurts
but it works this way
i'd find someone else
if i knew me the way you do
i know where i stand
and i know you give a damn
i'd find someone else
if i knew me the way you do

hold the phone
watch my tone
i just wanna please
fuck it whatever
i know you will never
this foolish endeavor
i deserve better

does it hurt
yeah i'll be okay
and it hurts
but it works this way
i'd find someone else
if i knew me the way you do
i know where i stand
and i know you give a damn
i'd find someone else
if i knew me the way you do
Track Name: Remember
i see you walking 'round
with a lovelier lover, i run for cover
got to hide cus this is too much to take

a glimpse or a shadow
can ruin my whole day
baby why'd you have to walk away

remember i should move on
remember it felt so wrong
remember how my eyes
they used to shine
remember the way way we touched
remember
remember cus my eyes they used to shine

i've erased all the places
burned all the traces
got to pack light cus the baggage will not budge

control is all i want for me
but where is it when i'm busy
wondering if you still think of me

remember i should move one
remember it felt so wrong
remember how my eyes
they used to shine
remember the way we touched
remember cus it's all too much
remember cus it's all i ever do

the pressure is mounting
and i'm still counting every day
i do not spend with you

i should be angry cus you left without notice
you didn't think i would notice
c'mon you know i always do

remember i should move on
remember it felt so wrong
remember how my eyes
they used to shine
remember the way we touched
remember it's all too much
remember cus it's all i ever do
Track Name: Don't Hold Your Breath (Or Do)
painted like the ripest fruit
from the branch i held onto
should've let go sooner
rather than reaching out for you

maybe then i'd be able to land on a foot or two
instead of plunging to the ground
to the sound of seedless doom

but if there's anything i've learned
it's how to stand again
when the mask is set aside
and they stop all the pretense

my bones shake
they tell me to run
after all the chase is half the fun
but i've years of learning how to get away
from the fools and the tools
and you're just the same

so don't hold you're breath or do

threw too many stones
that never seemed to skip
although the ripples they created
faded at the slowest of paces

makes no difference to depths of water
whether close to home or farther
they always seem to sink beneath the surface
i don't deserve this
i don't deserve this

but if there's anything i've learned
it's how to stand again
when the mask is set aside
and they stop all the pretense

my bones shake
they tell me to run
after all the chase is half the fun
but i've years of learning how to get away
from the fools and the tools
and you're just the same

so don't hold you're breath or

overcomplicating every situation that i'm in
at least i confess to the messes i begin
this is not the kind of conflict you can come back from
nobody wins
you were like appendicitis bursting in my side
just to show i don't need you to live

my bones they shake
they tell me to run
after all the chase is half the fun
but i've years of learning how to get away
from the fools and the tools
and you're just the same

so don't hold you're breath or do

'til you turn blue
Track Name: Empty Boy
he's an empty boy
he's got empty eyes
full of empty promises
for an empty life
and you can try to save him
but it's a waste of time
he's got his excuses
to keep him justified

you see a little light
somewhere deep inside
but i'm telling you
oh i'm telling you
it's a lie

cus he's an empty
trying to fill his void
and he'll take anything
just to feel something

he's tired of the pain
it cannot go away
he's lost the veil of shame
that kept his head contained

so he's reaching out to you
cus that's what his kind will do
but it's just no use
to endure his abuse

you see a little light
somewhere deep inside
but i'm telling you
oh i'm telling you
it's a lie

cus he's an empty boy
trying to fill his void
and he'll take anything
just to feel some
empty boy trying to
feel his void
and he'll take anything
just to fill something

where he's going
you can't follow
you see flesh but
he's so hollow
the only place for empty boys
is far away from all the noise

cus he's an empty boy
trying to fill his void
and he'll take anything
just to feel some
empty trying to
feel his void
and he'll take anything
just to fill something
