Track Name: Jealousy
Don’t deny that you’re the problem
When it’s your lies that fuel the flames
And when it all breaks down to ashes
You’re the one I’ll always blame
You turned your back when I needed you most
You’d do anything to see me fall
Needed you then, like you need me now
Don’t bother to call

I’m not here to save you
I’m not here to be your hero
Jealousy just isn’t your colour
But you paint the town so well
If I had a dollar for every brush stroke
Boy I’d be rich as hell
Boy I’d be rich as hell

Take a step back
You couldn’t handle that I needed space
What once was ours is now misplaced
You’ve got a pocket full of nothing
And a mind full of hope
But I don’t need you here

I’m not here to save you
I’m not here to be your hero
Jealousy just isn’t your colour
But you paint the town so well
If I had a dollar for every brush stroke
Boy I’d be rich as hell
Boy I’d be rich as hell

I’m not coming running back cause want me
Cause you want me
x4

I’m not here to save you
I’m not here to be your hero
Jealousy just isn’t your colour
But you paint the town so well
If I had a dollar for every brush stroke
Boy I’d be rich as hell
Boy I’d be rich as hell
Track Name: Don't Be
I'm just waiting for the day that I slowly crack
I've held on so long
I need some space, my shoulders are feeling heavy
I'm really not that strong

I can't blame the feeling but i'm craving the distance
I just need some time
I know you need me here, but this is like a road trip
But without the lines

It breaks my heart to see your head down dragging your feet dying to get out
But as you get deeper, the ships coming with you
Don't be an anchor
Because down there, you can't enjoy the view

Don't let me waste my time when I'm not the controller
Cas once I'm gone you'll be left with the title of the beholder

Be the ocean, find your rip
Don't the shoreline defy the strength of your grip

It breaks my heart to see your head down dragging your feet dying to get out
But as you get deeper, the ships coming with you
Don't be an anchor
Because down there, you can't enjoy the view

I can't run, I can't hide
Or get away from you
I don't know what to do
You're just bringing me down
(x2)

It breaks my heart to see your head down dragging your feet dying to get out
But as you get deeper, the ships coming with you
Don't be an anchor
Because down there, you can't enjoy the view
(x2)

Don't be an anchor
Because down there, you can't enjoy the view
Track Name: Over & Out
Hey there, open your eyes
I won’t be here for much longer
No reason to stay
and I won’t play your games

Wo-ah

Hey there it’s a two way street
but I can only see one lane
Things just aren’t the same

Wo-ah
Woooo-aah

I’m done with all your games
I’m over and out
I’m done with calling names
Your words are filled with doubt
No us, just you, just me
No us, just you, just me

If you can’t take me at my worst
You don’t deserve me at my best

I’m done with all your games
I’m over and out
I’m done with calling names
Your words are filled with doubt
No us, just you, just me.
Track Name: Cloud Nine
It’s like you’re stuck under cover in a hailstorm
The clouds are green and you don’t know where they came from
You’ve got two options, you can only pick one
Take your chances with the ice or you could pray for the sun

There’s no more faith left in those empty hands of yours
There’s no hope
There’s no more space left in this over crowded mind
There’s no, there’s no cloud nine

It’s not so easy when you’re left with one choice
With your unprotected actions
Because, because
There’s no more voice
There’s no more voice

There’s no more faith left in those empty hands of yours
There’s no hope
There’s no more space left in this over crowded mind
There’s no, there’s no cloud nine

There’s no more faith left in those empty hands of yours
There’s no hope

There’s no more faith left in those empty hands of yours
There’s no hope
There’s no more space left in this over crowded mind
There’s no, there’s no cloud nine
Track Name: Your Eyes
When you first saw her eyes shine on you
That girl she lit up your world like no one could
She smiled and waved, bit her lip nervously
She laughed at the stumbles and stutters you see
She wanted to know who you were as
You struggled to find the words, and be complimentary

Don’t buy her flowers; don’t let her wear your shirts
Don’t let her change you, because in the end it just hurts
When she rips out your heart and throws it back in your face
Son, I’m telling you now – it’s not worth the heartache

The summer passed by as you held her close,
She shared stories of past times, friends and of foes
You listened and humbled you nodded and smiled
For now you were friends and that was okay
Just keep holding on try harder, okay

Don’t buy her flowers, don’t let her wear your shirts
Don’t let her change you, because in the end it just hurts
When she rips out your heart and throws it back in your face
Son, I’m telling you now – it’s not worth the heartache

Things were going so well
Lying together on her bed
More than friends, less than lovers
Singing your favorite songs
Speaking what’s left unsaid
She looked into your eyes
And spoke the words one never said
Boy you’re perfect; I’m not good enough for you
Don’t ask me now cause I’m not the one for you

Your heart starts to break as it all settles in
What did you forget to say where did you even begin
Cause everything you though you knew
You knew nothing of the sort

Don’t you ever buy flowers, forget all about the spare shirts
Just stay true to who you are, cause no one on this earth deserves hurt
The way that you did, when she left you high up and dry
Son I’m telling you now, avoid pretty girls eyes.
