    VERSE

    It mattered to me to make you proud
    It mattered to me - it doesn't now
    I'm falling asleep to stay around
    It mattered to me, but how

    CHORUS

    When you treat me like you do
    Can I be enough for you
    When I'm tired of wanting to

    VERSE

    It mattered to me to wait it out
    The hours we get got counted down
    You call it relief - I'm on the ground
    You say it's just me, but how

  • 05:28 Lyrics
    Don't Even Bother

    VERSE

    Always seems to bring me down
    It just always brings me down
    A silence so profound
    To see that you're not around

    Used to mean to much to me
    You still mean to much to me
    But now it's all just memories
    And I still need
    I still need but

    CHORUS

    You don't even bother
    And I won't even try
    You can us slipping farther
    But we just turn away and sigh
    Inside

    VERSE

    Think about you all the time
    Think about you constantly
    But now it all tastes bittersweet
    And I still need
    I still need but

  • 03:55 Lyrics
    Bonfire

    VERSE

    Your breath is hanging in the air
    Full of the thoughts you've brought to bear
    Looking for something to call home
    Going somewhere to be alone

    CHORUS

    Watching the fire dance in the dark
    They'll love you just the way you are
    You don't have to change or try that hard

    VERSE

    Your eyes are staring out in space
    Lost in the moment, out of place
    Your friends can help you find your way
    They'll understand what words can't say

  • 02:54 Lyrics
    Get Through

    VERSE

    Faster than you fall
    Answering the call
    Play a part then fall again
    Answering the call

    CHORUS

    Is all we know to do
    The emptiness of a hopeful point of view
    Is all you get to get you through

    VERSE

    Up against the wall
    Ever after, all
    Hope this isn't all we get
    Up against the wall

  • 05:19 Lyrics
    Wandering

    VERSE

    Choke
    On the smoke
    Of the bridges you've burned
    You'll never learn
    You'll never learn

    Go
    On your own
    Give up all that you get
    You've got nothing left
    You've got nothing left at all

    CHORUS

    When you're wandering
    Away from everyone that cares
    You can't blame yourself
    But you might as well
    Because no one else is there

    VERSE

    Hope
    Against hope
    That it's all a bad dream
    It's just as it seems
    It's just as it seems

    So leave
    Everything
    For a place in your mind
    That you'll never find
    You'll never find it at all

    BRIDGE

    Can see it through you, what's making you move
    There's nothing to prove inside their minds
    Easier to hide or straight out deny than face
    But is there someplace...?
    The harder you chase, the further away it gets

    Aftermath

    VERSE

    I'm sorry now
    That I did
    That I didn't listen
    The holding out
    Isn't quite
    It's just like I envisioned
    I'm in control
    Yes I did
    No I didn't give in
    And yeah, I know
    No I don't
    What it is that's missing

    CHORUS

    In the aftermath
    You can gather up what's left
    You can have anything that you don't want
    On the way to become someone you're not

    VERSE

    I'm stranded now
    And it was my
    It wasn't my decision
    But I feel proud
    Hollowed out
    In my new position
    I'm satisfied
    Sacrificed
    With present conditions
    And yeah, I tried
    What a lie
    That's my best admission

    Counting Days

    VERSE

    Here's another chance, the start of a new day
    Here's another chance to live it the same
    Here's another chance to find what you misplaced
    Here's another chance - too late, gone to waste

    It's not the time to be a disappointment to anyone.
    It's not the time to be a disappointment to anyone.

    CHORUS

    A near miss at happiness
    It's a passing phase
    So come keep me company
    Counting off the days

    VERSE

    Here's another chance to spell out what you need
    Here's another chance - no one's listening.
    Here's another chance to set yourself at ease
    Here's another chance - it's just out of reach

    Unfulfilled

    VERSE

    Imagine this
    A loneliness, a feeling that remained
    And picture this
    A willingness to throw it all away
    I wanted to
    To prove to you
    I had something to say
    Don't look at me
    (be)cause you can't see
    Turn and walk away

    CHORUS

    I have lost all my faith
    In feeble words and things you say
    We all search for something real
    Still we're all left unfulfilled

    VERSE

    So think on this
    An emptiness, a place that's meant for you
    All through my soul
    The endless holes of places you don't use
    I can't explain
    I can't contain
    The things I saw in you
    I realize
    That all our lies
    Are something to hold to

  • 04:47 Lyrics
    Diversion

    VERSE

    It's okay. The seasons change but you won't feel a thing.
    Life still stays the same, but rearranges scenery.
    Colors change, the breezes blow their hues into the sea.
    Every day, a shade of grey

    Coloring
    All I see
    Hazily

    It's okay. The leaves will change but you will stay the same.
    Disarranged, and pasted back together on a page.
    Colors fade, the bleeding blurs them in and out of frame.
    Every day, I'm far away

    Coloring
    All I see
    Hazily

    CHORUS

    In your hands you write down all your dreams
    In your hands you write your tragedies
    In your head a world that no one sees
    A diversion, this reality

     

  • 03:57 Lyrics
    Lost

    VERSE

    Now I feel
    so estranged
    My face turning
    turn away
    And I see
    nothing better
    The sun's setting
    down on me

    CHORUS

    But I feel so afraid
    Is this my fate
    In this place?
    And I feel
    So ashamed
    Is this who I am?
    Or have I changed?

    Changed  for you.

    VERSE

    Don't be sorry
    But don't you miss me?
    Am I replaced?
    And don't you worry
    Just dismiss me
    Change your history
    Am I erased?

    Don't be sorry
    But don't you miss me?

    Turning Away

    VERSE

    This season is at its end
    Say goodbye my only friend
    Whatever happened to us, words can never mend
    I've nothing left to pretend

    Lift this veil of fallen grace
    See your prophet was a fake
    All of this has proven more than I can take
    Happiness that I forsake

    In your eyes I saw escape
    Killed away by leaps of faith
    Whatever happened to the words you would say?
    All I have just fades to grey
    Whatever happened to a bittersweet delay?
    All I am just goes away
    Whatever happened to the words you would say?
    Upon the turning away
