Track Name: Still Falling
winter’s dead, spring is here
and I can feel those autumn years
when all of this will come to pass
the moments they won’t ever last

I’ll grow old with you if you want me to
no matter what, I won’t forget about you
I’ll be right here, right at your side
I’ll join you on this wild ride

I’m falling, I’m still falling

old memories kept in a jar
like fireflies, they won’t go far
just hold em tight, dear to your heart
‘cause someday we will fall apart

when I’m old and gray, will you still be my light?
will you stay with me and make everything right?
the show must go on till death do us part
and when it’s all done, we’ll go back to the start

I’m falling, I’m still falling

somedays I feel like I’m losing my mind
well I got you by my side to tell me everything’s fine

well, I’m falling, I’m still falling
yes, I’m falling, I’m still falling for you

I’m never letting go
never, ever letting go
I’m never letting go
never, ever letting go
I’m never letting go
no, I’m never letting go

I’m never letting go
never, ever letting go
I’m never letting go
never, ever letting go
I’m never letting go
no, I’m never letting go
Track Name: Introverted Mess
the party’s over, it’s time to go home
put on the tv and unplug the phone
take no calls, no texts, I must relax
I’m outta breath, like death, let’s face the facts
you wear me out, I shout, now understand
can’t talk, can’t laugh, I can’t stand
I’m wearing down my batteries
it’s time to chill, recharge my energies

I’m alright, don’t stress
I’m just an introverted mess
I’m not mad, not sad, it’s okay
I just don’t wanna talk today

it’s not a joke, I need to rewind
take a step back and clear my mind
I stumble down, my thoughts are stuttering
I duck out and hide and y’all start muttering

I’m alright, don’t stress
I’m just an introverted mess
I’m not mad, not sad, it’s okay
I just don’t wanna talk today

I’m alright, don’t stress
I’m just an introverted mess
I’m not mad, not sad, it’s okay
I just don’t wanna talk today
Track Name: The Happy Way
it’s a strange thing, can you feel it?
all the happy, I wanna steal it
and make it all mine, I’ll make it all mine
it’s a cool thing, can you see it?
all the joyful, I wanna free it
and give it to you, I’ll give it to you

just let it all go
just let it all flow

drifting away
making this day
a brand new day
a happy day
make it a happy day
in the happy way

it’s a strange thing, can you sense it?
all the darkness, where I left it
has faded away, I let it fade away
it’s a cool thing, can you spot it?
all the sadness, where I got it
I left it behind, I left it all behind

just let it all go
just let it all flow

drifting away
making this day
a brand new day
a happy day
make it a happy day
in the happy way

it’s a strange thing, can you feel it?
all the happy, I’m gonna steal it
and make it all ours, I’m gonna make it all ours
Track Name: Late Night Drive
late night all the cars
they’re all driving through the stars
like satellites with headlights
show me the way through starry nights

late night take a ride
cruising’ planets by your side
like satellites with no direction
show me the way to perfection

I just wanna fly
through outer space some time
but my car is all I have
so I’ll just make believe that I can
Track Name: Go with the Flow
lightning strikes, we roll the dice
our fate’s uncertain, I hope it’s nice
but I can’t predict what becomes of us
just let it happen, don’t make a fuss

just go
go with the flow
you never know
where life will go

go with the flow

don’t think twice, go with your gut
‘cause you’ll get nowhere with your eyes shut
so open up, take a look around
this is your moment, you’ve come unbound

just go
go with the flow
you never know
where life will go
just go
go with the flow
you never know
where life will go
Track Name: Everything
my heart explodes
the pain overloads
I’m losing my health
I’m losing myself

what is happening to me?
why can’t I just let myself be free?
this crippling fear holds me down
it’s holds me down, down to the ground

everything
everything I ever hoped for
I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting
for it all to come and take me away
take me away, take me away to a better place

this sadness fills my heart
like poison in the dark
I can’t break free, can’t let it be
I just want to believe
that everything will be
okay, alright, just fine
I’m moving on, I’m moving on

everything
everything I ever hoped for
I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting
for it all to come and take me away
take me away, take me away to a better place

everything
everything I ever hoped for
I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting
for it all to come and take me away
take me away, take me away to a better place
Track Name: We Are Strong
shed blood, sweat and tears
conquering fears
making the most of this life

don’t give it away
don’t make em your prey
you are the one with the knife

so just cut it out
all of your doubt
it’s not a daunting task

just open your eyes
throw out that disguise
show them the face behind the mask

we are, we are, we are, we are strong
we are, we are, we are
we are, we are, we are, we are strong
we are, we are, we are

don’t forget it
and don’t regret it
never lose it
you can do it

we are, we are, we are, we are strong
we are, we are, we are
we are, we are, we are, we are strong
we are, we are, we are
Track Name: Tranquility
I’m all burned out on wasted time
some might say I’ve lost my mind
but it’s alright, no need to stress
I promise you I’ll clean up this mess

we have our reasons for the decisions we make
and even though some hearts might break
don’t you fret, we’re not dead yet
we still got time, don’t break a sweat

take a breath
be calm
it’s alright
it’s alright

I’m all used up, lost energy
but none of that really matters to me
‘cause it’s alright, I always get back up
just a few more breaths will be enough

we have our ways with dealing in time
and even though we sometimes lose our minds
don’t you fear, we won’t just disappear
we’ll take life as it comes, year by year
Track Name: Cicadas in the Summer
I’m going back in time when I was younger
playing games with my friends every summer
skateboarding in the streets when we were cool
staying out all day ‘cause there was no school

I love the sounds of cicadas in the summer
it takes me back to the days when I was younger
all of those years when nothing really mattered
those were the days and now my memory is tattered

back in time when I was younger
camping in the backyard every summer
staying up all night listening to the rain
it was easy then when there was no pain

I love the sounds of cicadas in the summer
it takes me back to the days when I was younger
all of those years when nothing really mattered
those were the days and now my memory is tattered

cicadas in the summer
takes me back when I was younger
back when I was younger
takes me back when I was younger

I love the sounds of cicadas in the summer
it takes me back to the days when I was younger
all of those years when nothing really mattered
those were the days and now my memory is tattered
Track Name: I'm Trying (feat. Libby)
all my friends think they know me
but they don't know me at all
but who can really blame them?
'cause I built up a wall
I never let them see me
when I was feeling blue
I always hid my emotions
they never even knew
I wasn't feeling happy
nothing ever felt right
I was just pretending
that I was doing alright

I am sorry, but I'm trying
to stand up tall
yes I'm sorry and I'm trying
to make sense of it all

you know it's hard you see
I can't just make believe
that I'm really happy
no that's just not me
I've been hiding in a corner
with my back against the wall
so many expectations
I just can't handle it all
I gotta take a breather
I wanna push on through
and work on getting shit together
and be the one you all thought you knew

I am sorry, but I'm trying
to stand up tall
yes I'm sorry and I'm trying
to make sense of it all

I was unaware
that anyone would care
now I can plainly see
you mean so much to me
yes I was unaware
that you'd really care
but I can plainly see
you mean so much to me

I am sorry, but I'm trying
to stand up tall
yes I'm sorry and I'm trying
to make sense of it all
I am sorry, but I'm trying
to stand up tall
yes I'm sorry and I'm trying
to make sense of it all
