Track Name: Just Say Goodbye
Verse 1:
It was so hard to build my identity
And you took it all away
It took so long but you didn't care about anything
I took one second to do away with

Chorus:
What about me
What about the next guy
How do you lead
Such a miserable life
And why do you cheat
How come you always lie
How bout finishing
Before you just say goodbye

Verse 2:
I’ve been alone so long I’m comfortable
I wouldn’t have it any other way
So hard to trust now if you only knew what you did to me
I can keep guys like you from happening

Chorus:
What about me
What about the next guy
How do you lead
Such a miserable life
And why do you cheat
How come you always lie
How bout finishing
Before you just say goodbye

Bridge:
In a way I guess I owe you a Thank You
cause if it weren’t for you and your miserable ways
would I have even pulled through

Chorus:
What about me
What about the next guy
How do you lead
Such a miserable life
And why do you cheat
How come you always lie
How bout finishing
Before you just say goodbye
And why do you cheat
How come you always lie
How bout finishing
Before you just say goodbye
Track Name: What I Did
Verse 1:
I never thought that this would be
in the cards for you and me
I never gave it a second thought
I’ve always known that it’s all my fault

Hook:
Ou what I did to me
Ou what I did to us
Ou tell me can’t you see
Ou how I’ve fucked shit up

Chorus:
I’m gonna make it up to you baby
I’m gonna make things right again

Verse 2:
This life is not our destiny
I’ve gotta be the one to set you free
the ambitions buried here deep within me
I’m gonna show you who I know you can be

Hook:
Ou what I did to me
Ou what I did to us
Ou tell me can’t you see
Ou how I’ve fucked shit up

Chorus:
I’m gonna make it up to you baby
I’m gonna make things right again

Bridge
You’ve got to understand
I’ll show you the life we never had

Chorus:
I’m gonna make it up to you baby
I’m gonna make things right again

Chorus:
I’m gonna make it up to you baby
I’m gonna make things right again
Track Name: I Will Die Unknown
Verse 1:
I'm sitting here feelin like nobodies listening
It's what I'd feared I seem to make such bad decisions
And now it's like I'm blotted out and I'm not with it
Fight back my tears hopefully I'm somebody’s mission

Chorus:
So fix me up
I'm here dying slow
What the fuck
I'm not strong enough
Or put me down
Just let my spirit go
Guess I can see how
I will die unknown

Verse 2:
I’m still right here but feelin’ like everyone’s moved on
Don’t mean leer can’t help but wonder where you’ve gone
Cause now it’s like the world has seen too much of my bad side
Fight back the urge to run away and hide just say so long

Chorus:
So fix me up
I'm here dying slow
What the fuck
I'm not strong enough
Or put me down
Just let my spirit go
Guess I can see how
I will die unknown

Bridge:
Where do I go now
it’s too late to
turn this shit around
it feels fake to
reinvent myself
I just want to
stand and scream and shout
I think I’m going to

Chorus:
So fix me up
I'm here dying slow
What the fuck
I'm not strong enough
Or put me down
Just let my spirit go
Guess I can see how
I will die unknown
Track Name: What's Left of You
Verse 1:
Holding onto what’s left of you here in my head
Because now that you’re gone I know that I’ll never ever get you back
but the truth is you were gone the whole time
when you were supposed to be mine

Chorus:
You got away
Now it’s a new day
And I am afraid
I miss having you all to me

Verse 2:
Holding onto what’s left of you here in my heart
and I know now that I never really ever had you at all from the start
and you know you never treated me right
Why am I not surprised

Chorus:
You got away
Now it’s a new day
And I am afraid
I miss having you all to me

Bridge:
How did I even get this far knowing that you didn’t love me baby

Chorus:
You got away
Now it’s a new day
And I am afraid
I miss having you all to me

Track Name: To Those 'Friends' Who Abandoned Me
Verse 1:
We used to be best friends you and me yes
We used to hang out like all the time attached at the hip
But then you disappeared you let them get to you and talk me down yes
I reminisce of a time when you were still around mmm no

Chorus:
Bright days blue skies in my life with or without you
And I wont even say ‘hey’ if I run into you
And I’d move really far away if I really had to
Just to avoid you I can see through you this is what it’s come to

Verse 2:
We used to say we’d remain best friends for our whole lives yes
And it’s hard to think that it didn’t happen and there’s no more you and I
Remember your face sometimes so I sit and cry
but don’t hesitate reminding myself how you didn’t even try

Chorus:
Bright days blue skies in my life with or without you
And I wont even say ‘hey’ if I run into you
And I’d move really far away if I really had to
Just to avoid you I can see through you this is what it’s come to

Bridge:
You were once there for me
but now you’ve let me down
You were once so caring
but now you don’t you don’t make a sound

Chorus:
Bright days blue skies in my life with or without you
And I wont even say ‘hey’ if I run into you
And I’d move really far away if I really had to
Just to avoid you I can see through you this is what it’s come to

Chorus:
Bright days blue skies in my life with or without you
And I wont even say ‘hey’ if I run into you
And I’d move really far away if I really had to
Just to avoid you I can see through you this is what it’s come to
Track Name: Banana Peel
Verse 1:
Guess everybody knows now
So you can all relax
I don’t hold out a lot of help now
No I can’t

Chorus:
I look how I feel and I feel like I’ve just stepped on a banana peel
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage
I am a hot mess and now I must must confess or get me outta here
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage

Verse 2:
No one knows how much I loved you
And no one cares
they only seen how bad you treated me
I was so scared

Chorus:
I look how I feel and I feel like I’ve just stepped on a banana peel
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage
I am a hot mess and now I must must confess or get me outta here
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage

Bridge:
You were my lover but you didn’t treat me well at all
You were my best friend but you’d abuse me whenever I’d call

Chorus:
I look how I feel and I feel like I’ve just stepped on a banana peel
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage
I am a hot mess and now I must must confess or get me outta here
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage

Chorus:
I look how I feel and I feel like I’ve just stepped on a banana peel
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage
I am a hot mess and now I must must confess or get me outta here
Rage and this rage and this rage and this rage and this rage
Track Name: Here I Am

Hey Baby boy

Track Name: How'd it Come to This
Verse 1:
You saw the underlying
so now you know
standing there naked and crying
to you I bared my soul
You didn’t seem so understanding
or filled with dread
I wiped all my tears all away as you
walked out of my life

Chorus:
And I don’t think I’ll ever share my soul again to anyone
and I’d like to ask myself how’d it come to this to this to this

Verse 2:
My doubts they all surround me
as I let myself down
My legs become so shaky
when you come around
This change in my life is draining me
me to my very core
why is my love so worthless
I don’t wanna hurt anymore

Chorus:
And I don’t think I’ll ever share my soul again to anyone
and I’d like to ask myself how’d it come to this to this
