Track Name: Like You Barely Even Know
You're gonna look at me like you barely even know me
And somehow I still think that you possibly think of me

"Oh God, can she please be the one"
That's what I'd say to myself every day for a year
And I wish it was clear to me then what I was in for

But I was so distracted by the things that you'd do like when you'd make me feel like I was the only one you'd ever be that close to

Wishing was something that I loved to do but I will never tell you what I was wishing for because if I did you'd probably do something that was so out of line

I hope you never have to go through what I had to go through

BUT PLEASE DO
Track Name: To the Whacks
I have no self control it's driving me crazy
I am going over the Pacheco pass with my breaks out
The fear is my, my unrest, the speed is my self acceptance

It is torture for me to just see your face
I am starting to accept that I'm never going to have a place in your life again
One thing I regret, I will always regret is that I didn't see this coming at all
Now I'm way more committed than I should be

The summer was a lie

It is torture for me to just see your face
I am starting to accept that I'm never going to have a place in your life again
One thing I regret, I will always regret is that I didn't see this coming at all
Now I'm way more committed than I should be

All this time I have had, to get myself together has gone to waste

And I'd say it's cus of you but I know it's cus of me

You say that you're not perfect, but I know you really are, it's obvious to me that you should be with someone who is perfect like you are

Hey look I will be that way for you someday but just wait just wait because

One day I'll climb it
(I'll climb the mountain)
I'll prove that I'm worthy
(I'll climb the mountain)
Now I have no reason
(oooohhhh)
Now I have no reason
(oooohhhhhh)
Track Name: Solomon Grundy
All I want is a decent pair of pants, is that too much to ask?

SOLOM GRUNDY WANTS PANTS TOO
Track Name: Hit Home
Passing the time, what are you?
But an ink stain I will remember as the beginning of a beautiful story

(we were it)
I have many things to say to you but I'll lose you even more
And I'd like to think that you, were more than just someone who
Would fade like all the rest of the memories put to the test of time, and I

(I wanna wait)
I want to wait I want to run away from what I have become since you've been gone, away from what I have become since you've been gone
I want to wait I want to run away

So impressed with the way you hold yourself together
Where did the emotion go?

I WANT TO TAKE BACK EVERYTHING

I keep hoping you'd show up at my house wanting to get back with me now I'm feeling stupid and pathetic, cus I know you don't care

I keep hoping you'd show up at my house wanting to get back with me now I'm feeling stupid and pathetic, cus I know you don't care and you never will again
Track Name: Think I Thunk
Am I okay? I won't wanna tell you if asked
What if I could could go to the past?
If I could face my problems like a man
Hey what do you mean it seems like I don't have a plan?
I want to erase my mind so it's like I never had to hear that

Why was I so gone?
If this was a battle, you would've won
Why was I so in love?
I was this close, to driving myself to Wisconsin

We can run through fields of flowers it will be so stupid awesome
We can run through fields of daisies it will be so stupid cool
Tell me something that's not cool about that!
Track Name: Thought a Year Would Do It
A year went by and nothing has changed if God doesn't want it why can't he just tell me

A year went by

(Don't stray to far away)
This is nothing with You by my side

Don't be afraid of things that can't actually hurt you

You are strong, you are tough, and, what you should fear most is not what's right in front of you
Track Name: Don't Say Goodbye
Don't say goodbye dear

Sometimes I think to myself
Why bother with anyone else
What a good way to know
What a good way to grow

Don't say goodbye dear

Sometimes I think to myself
Why bother with anyone else
What a good way to know
What a good way to grow

All the clear skies, all the sand dunes
Have gone away
All the sunsets, all the seagulls
Have gone away

Don't say goodbye dear
Track Name: The Last Thing That Could Happen
Helped me to fill in this hole, that's what you did
I don't know what I would do with out you
Pains come when I'm not around you
Good thing I get to see you everyday

It's 5 years from now

What are you doing today?
I am fine snuggling inside

It's 5 years from now

I, I was just a poor lonely boy before I knew you
You, you turned me into a real man by standing beside me
I, I didn't know that I could feel this happy but you opened up new doors and pushed me straight through thank God for you thank God for you
You, I love you, yes it's true, oh it's true

I'm so certain that you're the one for me because every time I close my eyes you're what I see but I'm scared I've fallen too hard to function properly
What's yours is mine what's mine is yours I can't wait to see what is in store for our lives

If, I could suspend one moment in time, for the rest of my life, it would easily be the one that's taking, taking place right now
Track Name: For No Reason
I'm hearing something sing to me it's called forgiveness it's lost its place
So all my brothers come sing aloud and hear why I am not so proud

I've wanted something, something for so long I want it so bad I could do anyone wrong so all my sisters look towards me in disgrace, for I have wronged you in so many ways

I can't tell if I am, depressed or just lost, I wish I had a discernible cost for the things that I have done deep in my mind but I'm sure they are not one of a kind

So gather friends gather family gather friends gather family gather friends gather family and see what I have become

Gather friends gather family gather friends gather family gather friends gather family I want you all to see, to see why I was dumb for thinking that she would pick me...
