Track Name: Hit & Run
Verse 1:
Why did you leave me in the dark?
This is another night I'm wasting on you
Why would you waste your time
Fooling me into something that's not true?
And I'm here, I'm still waiting

How can I know what to say
When you vanish instead of pushing me away?
Well I guess I'll never learn
And I'll keep playing with your fire 'till I get burned

My mind tells me to leave you alone
But I can't bring myself to listen at all

Chorus:
I would've fought for you
I would've died for you
And I'm still waiting
You made me fall for you
Are you gonna save me too?
Cause I'm still waiting
I'm still broken
From your hit and run

Verse 2:
I've spent countless nights
Saying I must have not done something right
Too many words left unsaid
It's girls like you I'll never understand

And I bet you're still sleeping
Not giving a second thought about me

[Chorus]

Bridge:
Are you the one that got away?
Or just another pretty face?
But I'll make the same mistake again and again
Now I'm stuck in my own chase
Blinded by my stubborn faith
And it's too late to escape

I'm still waiting, I'm still broken
I'm still waiting, I'm still broken

[Chorus]

Outro:
Why did you leave me in the dark?
This is another night I'm wasting on you
Track Name: Crossroads
Chorus:
Give me something to do
And I want something new to value
I need some inspiration
To cure my lack of motivation

Verse 1:
Looking for a way out
From another rut
Someone wake me up inside
I'm tired of wasting time at home
Bored and all alone
Today I won't accept this empty feeling

I'm gonna own the night
Live it up tonight
Ride along the street lights
To anywhere but here

[Chorus]

Verse 2:
I can't wait any longer for someone who
Will never answer me
'Cause they're not worth my time
And they're the one to blame
For all my misery

I'm gonna own the night
And live it up tonight
Waste away with pressure
And live with my mistakes

Bridge
I've got nothing left to tell these crossroads
They're really getting under my skin
'Cause I don't know where to go

Outro:
If there's anyone who's just like me
I hope you understand me
If there's anyone who's just like me
I hope you understand me
Track Name: Hesitated (feat. Gabi Kennific)
Verse 1
Beautiful, who knew the first would be the last
Time I'd get to talk to you?
And why did it have, to end so fast
Now I'm stuck living in the past

I didn't know how you'd feel about me
I was afraid and now I'll never know

Chorus:
'Cause I hesitated and now I'm left with
All these words I should've said
There's nothing I can do but choke on them
And live with this regret
Just praying I'll see you one day

Verse 2:
How can I, just miss someone
I never even got to know
'Cause I was sure I'd see you around
But with my luck I find I'm never right
Now I, I
Have to live with this scar in my heart

[Chorus]

Bridge:
You're the voice inside my head
Over and over again
You're the shadow still haunting me

[Gabi Kennific]
Do you only miss me now I'm gone
Am I the reason that you're all alone
Why didn't you do anything
If I meant everything to you
And maybe you'll see me one day
With someone else you should've been
And I, I
Never think of you

You hesitated and now you're left with
All these words you should've said
There's nothing you can do but choke on them
And live with this regret
Just praying you'll see me one day

[Chorus]

Outro:
I,I never think of you
But I, I always think of you
Track Name: Shadow
Verse 1:
Lately I've been thinking 'bout the story of us
Remember back when they couldn't pull us apart?
Don't you remember...
The days when it was you and I against the world
I never thought that you would be the one who turned
I should've known
'Cause I guess our days flew by and you became a liar
Your new friends will abide to torch this one with fire

[Chorus]
But you can't take what's mine to break
It's been a long time now since I've seen you around
This part of town
And things have changed although you look the same
You're just the shadow of someone I used to know
From this part of town

Verse 2:
I think that I'll be fine living my life without
Your new routines that I don't give a damn about
Not anymore...
So you can take your girlfriend and do what you want
But understand that I'm no longer hanging on
You're dead and gone
'Cause I guess your days flew by and I became forgotten
And even when I tried you let her push me aside

[Chorus]

Bridge:
I guess you forgot who stood by you
And I forgot about myself
But look at me now
I don't need you around

[Chorus]

Outro:
A long time ago
A long time ago
A long time ago
A long time ago
Track Name: Thousand Glasses
Verse 1:
Here you are again messing around with my head
And getting me to think about you in circles
I'm overthinking again, caught up in all this small talk
Even though you most likely don't care at all

This is dangerous, too treacherous to see
Can't let my guard down, when you're around me

Chorus:
I confess that I still think about you
Every now and then
When I'm lying down on my bed
And I admit that every time I look at you
Your green eyes cut as deep as a thousand glasses

Verse 2:
I know it's been a while,
But still that same stupid smile
Still gets me every time the way it used to
And I get flashes of last November
I doubt you'd even remember
How much you brought me up before you
Tore me down

And it seems that time won't heal the broken-hearted
And I'm willing to start over again
But I sure as hell don't want to be your friend

[Chorus]

Bridge:
Forgive me I can't pretend that everything is gonna be the same
Forgive me I can't forget that I never wanted only this

[Chorus]

Outro:
This is dangerous, too treacherous to see
Can't let my guard down when you're around me
Track Name: Ripped Me Out
Verse 1:
I fell for the lies
I didn't say goodbye
I don't know why I stick around
Keep coming back for more
To a love full of thorns
That I can't seem to let go

And now my hands are bleeding
I can't shake this feeling
I know that you're leaving
But why did you lock me inside

Chorus:
You pulled me in and ripped me out
From my place of safe and sound
I don't know what's right and I can't decide
Do I get up and rebound
Or wait for you to come around

Verse 2:
You got me paralyzed
And even if I try
I know I can't forget you
And now the months have passed
But still your photographs
Never fade away like you did

Now I'm slowly sinking
Faltering and reeling
So why fall in love
If it can kill like this?

[Chorus]

Bridge:
I'm sick of writing songs about you
And staying up half past two
With thoughts of you I can't fight
'Cause I'm still locked inside

[Chorus]
Track Name: Moonwalker
Verse 1:
You were gone too soon
Singing your heart out
Your broken heart will be mend
Walking the moon tonight
While I'm here
Moving my tassel
I couldn't imagine this day
Turning out this way

Chorus:
What's it like there?
I'm running on empty down in here
I didn't realize what I had
Until the silence got to me

Verse 2:
I went to bed
And turned the lights out
Can you wake me up or tell me
That I must be dreaming
Waking up
To the voices
Reminding me that this is
The harsh reality

[Chorus]

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]

Outro:
And I can't do anything
With the silence here with me
I can't do anything
Track Name: Broken, Not Beaten
Verse 1:
Broken into pieces
And feeling like the whole world is crashing down
Searching for a reason
To silence all the whispers from my doubts

Chorus:
Light a fire in my heart
I'm so quick to fall apart
Can I put myself together and
Just pick up the pieces?
I'm only broken

Verse 2:
They're counting me out again
But they're not the only ones
That I want to prove wrong
It's been so damn long
Since I've proven anything to myself
I won't let them win

Chorus 2:
Light a fire in my heart
I'm so quick to fall apart
Can I put myself together and
Just pick up the pieces?
Turned my life upside down
I keep falling to the ground
But this time I'll get up again
This won't be the end
I'm only broken


Bridge:
Hanging on to pride
Like a martyr cries as they clutch to their faith
Don't give up the fight
There's still a spark inside
There will be another day
Another day
Another day

Final Chorus:
Light a fire in my heart
I'm so quick to fall apart
Can I put myself together and
Just pick up the pieces?
Turned my life upside down
I keep falling to the ground
But this time I'll get up again
This won't be the end
I'm only broken, not beaten.
Track Name: Twist Of Fate
Verse 1:
I've been waiting, for my destiny
Everyone says It's never meant to be
But I know the difference between them and me
It's that there the ones who'll stay the same
Cause they'll never believe

But destiny won't wait and there would be no one to blame
Soon the world will know my name
Even If I'm on my own

Chorus:
Look in my eyes, I will fight
They're never gonna hold me down
I will write my own life
The end to my story
I'm setting out to crash the gates
I'm burning out in a storm of flames
I'm going out on a twist of fate

Verse 2:
It seems like they gave up
On their hopes and dreams
They told me that dreaming
Is nothing but a travesty
But I don't live to be a walking casualty
It's what sets me apart and makes me a minority

And it's time to stop the wait
Before it's way too late
Soon the world will chant our names
Even if we stand alone

[Chorus]

Bridge:
I've been waiting for my destiny
Everyone says it's never meant to be

[Chorus]
Track Name: Summer Air
Verse 1:
Today is the first day
I'm thinking about the memories and
All the plans I've made
To see familiar faces
And live life like the fearless
I'm sick and tired of looking out from here

And getting locked inside
All the restless nights
With burnt out minds
But not tonight

Chorus:
It's going down in this town
I'm dreaming of what's out there
I left my heart on these roads
Nothing feels like home
Time slows down and I feel alive
Breathing in, this summer air

Verse 2:
For the first time in months
I finally feel like I belong and
The pessimist is gone
I can finally see the light
And all my shadows are far behind

In the dawn of night
All the city lights
They feel just right
I'll be home tonight

[Chorus]

Bridge:
I think about the future all the time
Everything is changing in front of my eyes
But I hope this part
Of us will never die

[Chorus]
