Track Name: Wedding Vows
The vows were said
and you blushed red
just like you used to
before you moved away
and left me
for better days

so here I am
with no goals or plans
except reaching
the bottom
of another
bottle

so here’s to him
and here’s to her
until
we meet
again
please pour me another
Track Name: Romantic Comedy
Nothing’s felt quite right to me
Since you left for Tennessee
I’ve given up my hopes and dreams
They made it hard to breathe
I’m probably better off this way
Acting twice my age
While my friends go out to drink
I sit inside and read

While you
fade away
into childhood mistakes

Feeling middle-aged
Feeling replaced
Starting over for the hundredth time
Feeling thrown away
Feeling cliche
Like you’ve wasted my entire life

I’m having trouble getting sleep
All I ever do is think
about the lives shown on TV
and how they’re never what they seem
Life’s no romantic comedy
or some fucked up tragedy
Even though I thought both of those things
about you and me

There’s no
silver screen
and nobody’s watching

Feeling middle-aged
Feeling replaced
Starting over for the hundredth time
Feeling thrown away
Feeling cliche
Like you’ve wasted my entire life
Track Name: Day After Day
Day after day
They always end the same
Driving home
To spend the night alone
Or to call my friends
about watching “The Room” at 10

Cause I need a change
Of scenery
I’m always acting the lead
But the cast never follows me
So I'm giving it up
In light of supporting roles
A face to remain unknown
That you'll pass on the street
Without thinking a thing

Night after night
Lights sneaking through my blinds
The city never sleeps
But it never bothers me
I close my eyes again
Still waiting for something to happen

Cause I need a change
Of scenery
This city's just not for me
It never feels quite complete
It's being torn down
And being built right back up
It hits too close to home with me
I fail right as I succeed
Day after day after day after day after day
Track Name: I'm Still Sad About It
This isn’t what I thought I’d be doing at this point in my life
Hell, I thought I’d have a wife
But I’ve been wrong before. I’m probably wrong more than I am right
that's how I live my life
but still I’d do it all again to spend more time with the memories that I’ve lost
no matter what the cost

Cause I miss my friends and family
I missing everything that used to be
and though they live in memory
I just can’t shake the feeling
that as another year goes by I’ll forget more names and forget more times

It’s like I’m losing all my friends by forgetting different parts of them
like they were always just pretend
It’s not like I’m old, but I fear more will go the older that I get
until there’s nothing left

of the house we left on Meadow Knoll
the image of my high school halls
the drunken nights with all my friends
the songs I used to sing with them
the taste of vodka on your lips
the way you moved your skinny hips
the person that you used to be
before you left and changed completely
Track Name: Graduation
Overthinking things again
while grabbing drinks with all my friends
I haven’t seen them in at least a couple months
cause they’re all leaving me behind,
getting jobs, and starting lives
everything I always thought that I would do

So I'm afraid I'm missing out on everything
I'm afraid I'm missing out on nothing

With every day I age
The life I want feels further away
The repetition never seems to end
Cause everybody feels the same
just a different face and a different name
and I'm too tired to start over again

Cause I'm afraid I'm missing out on everything
I'm afraid I'm missing out on nothing
I'm afraid I'm missing out on everything
I'm afraid I'm missing out on nothing
And this is all there is

Waiting for something that will never come
Cause all I can't have is all that I want
So while my friends talk I'm pretending
Our lives all have alternate endings
Track Name: These Things
It was lights off at the bar
it was the back seat of your car
it was another night to forget
but I still know the taste of your lips
from that drunk mistaken kiss
I doubt you even remember it
So I keep it to myself and keep it quiet

You’d think
I’d have learned by now
these things
never work quite how
I want them to
when I just want you

I want to peel off your dress
kiss the back of your neck
do a couple things we might regret
and when we wake up in the morning
to the sound of your cat snoring
we’ll roll over and do it all again
but we keep it to ourselves and keep it quiet

You’d think
we’d have learned by now
these things
never work quite how
we want them to
when I just want you
Track Name: Secret Tattoo
I know all about your secret tattoo
and how it doesn’t mean a thing to you
so concerned with other’s opinions
you’ve never really found yourself
always grasping for attention
like fake flowers on a shelf

I’m never gonna get this, never gonna get this
never gonna get this, never gonna get this
never gonna get this, never gonna get this right
We’re never gonna fix this, never gonna fix this
never gonna fix this, never gonna fix this,
never gonna fix this, I’m never gonna make you mine

I know all about the things you don’t show
all the lies you hide under your clothes
your parents money keeps you nimble
you’ve never worked a day in your life
No wonder it’s so simple
to say everything’s gonna be alright
Track Name: Lights Off
Light the match and let the
paper burn all your poison words
straight into my lungs
wandering through the dark after
the night’s been lost to some
drunken memories

that I’ll probably never see again
like the nights we used to have back then

But I can’t stay away much less
stay out late without
distracting myself
I swear I’ll be alright I just
need some time away from
all the things that might have been

I’m probably better off with my friends
but I don’t want to bother them
I’d rather sleep with my TV
the lights are off please don’t bother me
until the morning
Track Name: Seventeen
We’re not what you think
and it’s nothing against you
but nothing’s as it seems
and I can’t feel something towards you
days keep passing by
we keep moving toward an exit
if we gave this more time
I'd grow despondent and distant

so let’s cut it off now
before this gets any harder
it’s not what I want
but it feels so much smarter
than going through our days
like nothing’s the matter
and issuing delays
until you leave for Colorado

cause you can be alone without being lonely
and you can be lonely without being alone
and though you’re by my side
my mind’s on something different

But it’s true
I was thinking of you
cause I’d rather call if off than lead you on
when I know you’ll so be gone
but when you get drunk you get drastic
I say you’re overreacting
and don’t be so fucking dramatic
we’re not seventeen anymore
Track Name: Brown Eyes
The city lights were shining all around
On our walk home from a night drunk downtown
Yeah, the concert was good and the day had gone perfectly
You had this look in your brown eyes as you talked about everything

But soon enough you started to cry
And we both knew your reason why
I wanted to break through the door, help you forget everything
Pick you up the floor, help you mend all your dreams.

But I still felt lost at sea
And you still felt just as lost as me
So as you opened the door, my thoughts ran on repeat
What’s a beauty like her doing with a wretch like me?

Then I saw my reflection in the window
and didn’t recognize myself
After everything we’ve been through
Maybe we both need someone else
I promise to give you all I have left
As long as you promise me too
I don’t have much I really want now
But one thing that matters to me is you
so please don't leave unless this means nothing
Track Name: Diary
Upstairs at your apartment
Sleeping on the hardwood floor
my back and heart feel broke and sore
A long night, now morning’s come
Packing up my bags to go
Lost again for the drive home

I keep telling myself
not to fall for you
Like I’ve even got a choice
if I’m going to

An old friend, this cliche again
Boy meets girl and gets a crush
like nothing ever is enough
But you’ve been on my mind
The way the smoke rolls off your lips
Yet you somehow feel so innocent

I keep telling myself
not to fall for you
Like I’ve even got a choice
if I’m going to

We pour more drinks
as you read me your diary
As I stumble home
I feel more and more alone

I keep telling myself
not to fall for you
Like I've even got a choice
if I'm going to
