Track Name: These Choices Were Lived In, Can We Forgive Them?
I'm not so young and in love like I was before
feeling older, feeling to be close

And I run, run, run, run.
Running around, try to, try to, try to get out of this town.
And I, I know.

It's always the same thing
Are we on

We're like a song that you learned yesterday
It's the four best words you'd ever sing.

And I run, run, run, run.
Running around, try to, try to, try to get out of this town.
And I, I know.

It's always the same thing
Are we on
Track Name: I'm Doing This For Me, But I'd Say You're Worth It, Wouldn't You Agree?
You'll never know if you don't change
It's all you know to play it safe
You lie to cheat your heart
You steal to play a part
Just once you need to let go, go, go, no no no no
I know I'm just a child
I've led, I let this lie
Woke up to be someone else

Is temporary considered a short time
Goddammit I think I felt it my whole life
This reputation has been killing me slowly
Temporary translates to lonely

You think you know
You think you're saved
Let's see you open up to pain

Is forever considered to be fleeting
I don't care I'm ready to be momentary
If I learned anything
I can feel everything
Is this love
This is love
Track Name: Deciding: A Map Or The Treasure
You run around town telling people what they want to hear
That's no one it's fear
You're going in circles looking for what you used to know
That's empty you hear

It's OK to be everything to someone
All I want to do is be everything to someone

Spin like a record I'm a scratched up 45
I'm broken inside
I guess the bottom line is no matter how hard I try
When I'm scared I hide

It's OK to be everything to someone
All I want to do is be everything to someone

In between the lines and what I used to know
Subtle hints of a place I used to go
I'll draw you map if you promise to take it slow
You can't let go

It's OK to be everything to someone
Just one
All I want to do is be everything to someone
That's you
If it hurts like hell when you try to get close to someone
It's true
All I'm going to do is give everything to someone
Just one
Track Name: If Only Magic Lamps Really Existed
Have you ever looked up at the sky?
Read the clouds to know there something more
It's over
You tell yourself it's just a lie convinced the world has turned it's back
It's overwhelming
At night there's a star for everyone
All takes is a wish to claim your life
Reach up and out an hold on tight
Don't let these moments pass you by
It's overwhelming

It's over now, it's over now
The dream has come true
It's all brand new
You don't know how, you don't know how
To let it go
The stars don't know

You hold this up to the light
And take back all you've wanted
You hold this up to the light
All your wishes granted

It's over now, it's over now
The dream has come true
It's all brand new
You don't know how, you don't know how
To let it go
The stars don't know
Track Name: 'Thank You' Is What You Say To Pain
You ever want something so badly that I hurts?
You ever wanted something so badly that it turns and turns and turns
Your stomach into awful twisting knots?
Until everything you're scared of is the only thing you've got

It's everybody against me, it's everybody against me
I know that I can't always see
Everything you might see
When you look at me

Growing up you took it all in stride
Regained your posture told yourself you'd be alright
Travelling in search of all you've earned
The home is where the heart is but you've got to build it first

It's everybody against me, it's everybody against me
I know that I can't always see
Everything you might see
When you look at me

If you take it all away
What you've got left for yourself
Is that fire you've learned to tame
Waiting there upon the shelf
If you take it all away
You're back to having just yourself
Strong enough to burn the pain
Go and take it all away

This is just another chapter done
At the risk of sounding trite your life's only begun
The toughest scenes are in the past
No need for looking back your heart was built to last

It's everybody against me, it's everybody against me
I know that I can't always see
Everything you might see
When you look at me

If you take it all away
What you've got left for yourself
Is that fire you've learned to tame
Waiting there upon the shelf
If you take it all away
You're back to having just yourself
Strong enough to burn the pain
Go and take it all away
Track Name: I Never Wanted To Be An Astronaut, But My Head Is In The Clouds
Chasing down the moonlight just to feel the sunlight
Breaking through the tension just to feel suspended
Feeling winded just as I'm lifted
Grounded by the tornado
Passing through these bedroom walls
And I won't give away

With a head lost in the clouds full of thoughts that won't come out
From a tongue so badly burned by all disaster stories told and heard
While a constant ringing in the ears deafens all your strongest fears
Your voice is screaming loudly now begging the sky to open and begin
Pouring down

The feelings that I get from you are the reasons that I run from you
And it's always something new
The bridges that we walk across and the rivers that we swim across
Leave us feeling new

The seasons come and go but I won't show
Any signs of weathering
Of bending or breaking
I won't blow away

The feelings that I get from you are the reasons that I run from you
And it's always something new
The bridges that we walk across and the rivers that we swim across
Leave us feeling new
The feelings that I get from you are the reasons that I run to you
And it's always something new
The feelings that have run from you are the reasons in what I do
And it's always something new

It's always what I do
It's always something new
It's always something true
