Hours Away

I’m falling for you now, I see the light
 I haven’t seen since you’ve gone away
Yeah, I’m fighting for you and you’re worth the fight
But will your memories of me ever fade?

When the night closes in
I still pray for the day I’ll see you again
When the night closes in
I’ll long to hold you in my arms

Still I wonder why, why you seem so low
I want to chase all your troubles away
Baby, by your side is where I want to go
I wish I could be there today
But I’m just too many hours away

Woah

I’m going for it now, I’m feeling right
Just say the word and I’ll be on my way
Yeah, I’m going forward ‘til you’re in my sight
I’ll hit the road as our mixtape plays

When the night closes in
Just say I should stay, I’ll come through again
I’ve thrown caution to the wind
I know you’ll keep me safe from harm

Still I wonder why, why you seem so low
(Why you seem so low)
I want to chase all your troubles away
Baby, by your side is where I want to go
(Where I want to go)
I wish I could be there today
But I’m just too many hours away

Woah

Still I wonder why, why you seem so low
I want to chase all your troubles away
Baby, by your side is where I want to go
I wish I could be there today
But I’m just too many hours away

Still I wonder why, why you seem so low
(Why you seem so low)
I want to chase all your troubles away
Baby, by your side is where I want to go
(Where I want to go)
I wish I could be there today
But I’m just too many hours away

Woah

Baby, by your side is where I want to go
(Where I want to go)
I wish I could be there today
But I’m just too many hours away
Yeah, I wish I could be there today
But I’m just too many hours away

Woah

Leaving Home

Why you’d leave, I don’t understand
But you’ve done no explaining
When I reached out for your hand
You left me hanging

You were following your heart
And I can’t say that it’s wrong
I just wonder why you had to waste my time
For so long

Honestly, I’m now believing
That I’ll be fine the day you’re leaving home
But for how long?
I don’t know
Just promise me you won’t forget me
And I’ll forgive you when you let me go
But for how long?
I don’t know
I don’t know

Nothing’s going as we planned
And my patience is draining
Why you’d leave, I don’t understand
But I’m not complaining

I saw problems from the start
But I thought you proved me wrong
Well, now I realize it’s the right time
To say, “so long”

Honestly, I’m now believing
That I’ll be fine the day you’re leaving home
But for how long?
I don’t know
Just promise me you won’t forget me
And I’ll forgive you when you let me go
But for how long?
I don’t know

Do you ever look back
And wonder what went wrong?
Why turn back the pages?
It all happened so long ago
It seems this is over
And we both agree that’s fine
I just wonder why you had to waste my time

Honestly, I’m now believing
That I’ll be fine the day you’re leaving home
But for how long?
I don’t know
Just promise me you won’t forget me
And I’ll forgive you when you let me go
But for how long?
I don’t know
I don’t know

You were following your heart
And I can’t say that you’re wrong
I just wonder why you had to waste my time

Pieces

Have you found that last piece to the puzzle?
What could you do?
These walls you built up of lies to hide behind
I see right through
I’m seeing through you

It seems I don’t know what to do
Sometimes the pieces just don’t fit
I think there’s something wrong with you
But I can’t put my finger on it
Oh no

Rage trapped inside, I’m a beast in a muzzle
What did you do?
I’m still wrapped up in webs of lies 
That I can’t believe aren’t true
Am I here with you?

It seems I don’t know what to do
Sometimes the pieces just don’t fit
I think there’s something wrong with you
But I can’t put my finger on it
Sometimes there’s nothing you can do
But you still don’t want to quit
I think there’s something wrong with you
But I can’t put my finger on it
Oh no

I see you running
What you been running from for so long?
I’ll never know

It seems I don’t know what to do
Sometimes the pieces just don’t fit
I think there’s something wrong with you
But I can’t put my finger on it
Sometimes there’s nothing you can do
But you still don’t want to quit
I think there’s something wrong with you
But I can’t put my finger on it
Oh no

Worth the Trouble

I remember all that you said
All those lies flowing through your head
I thought you had all I wanted
Until you took it away

Oh well now maybe you could come and save me
I've found myself in another struggle
Oh well now lately with all the stress you gave me
I'm not sure if you're worth the trouble

I remember all that you said
All those lies flowing through your head
I thought you had all I wanted
Then you took it away

Oh well now maybe you could come and save me
I've found myself in another struggle
Oh well now lately with all the stress you gave me
I'm not sure if you're worth the trouble

I remember
I remember
I remember
Yeah I remember

Oh well now maybe you could come and save me
I've found myself in another struggle 
Oh well now lately with all the stress you gave me
I'm not sure if you're worth the trouble

Oh well now maybe you could come and save me
I've found myself in another struggle 
Oh well now lately with all the stress you gave me
I'm not sure if you're worth the trouble

Are you worth the trouble?

Make Things Right

I’ve done you wrongIt seems with every choice I make
I’d never want to hurt you
But sometimes I make mistakes
I still miss hearing your voice
Its echoes keep me awake
I just want to make things right
No matter what it takes

I don’t mean to cause an issue
I just came by to say I miss you tonight

Don’t let this go to waste
I’d do anything to see your smiling face
I’d give anything to get out of this place
 I’ve put myself in 

I don’t mean to cause an issue
I just came by to say I miss you tonight

So before we fade away
I just want to end this fight
I’m sorry we ended up this way
But I thought of you a lot today
And I just want to make things right

Don’t let this end
You know you’ll always have a friend in me
Come whatever may
Since you slipped away
I’ve been spending all my days
Trying to find the perfect way
To say I’m sorry

So before we fade away
I just want to end this fight
I’m sorry we ended up this way
But I thought of you a lot today
And I, I just want to make things 
I want to make this right
I’m sorry we ended up this way
But I thought of you a lot today
And I just want to make things right
And say I’m sorry

High Hopes

Final Days

Do you know where I will be
Through the other lives made?
I'm hoping that you will see
I'm the only one who stayed
I've always been left behind
Through all that you've been through
I've been waiting a lifetime
To spend your final days with you

'Cause when you're gone you'll still be with me
When you're gone I'll still be here
When you're gone I'll still be wishing that you'd still hold me dear

When everybody's left you
For life or for the grave
That's the last thing that I'd ever do
Every memory I will save

'Cause when you're gone you'll still be with me
When you're gone I'll still be here
When you're gone I'll still be wishing that you'd still hold me dear

Now your final days arrive
And it's your time to let go
With me your memory survives
And that's all you need to know

High Hopes

Oh I've been thinking a lot about that night
I spent with you, it felt so right
When my eyes met with yours, you
Must have felt it, too, of course
Did you tell all your friends like I told mine?
You don't have any friends? Oh, that's fine
'Cause I'm the only friend you'll need
As long as I'm the only guy you see, well

I really hope you think about it
And give me another shot
I really hope that night wasn't
The only chance I got

Now it's been a while since that day
And I'm running out of lines to say
To keep me running through your mind, it
Seems I've run out of breath this time
When I felt I had nothing to lose
You came to me bearing bad news
Your love came and went so fast
How long did I expect one night to last? Well

I hope you know I think about it
More often than not
I really hope that night wasn't
The only chance I got
I really hope you think about it
And give me another shot
Oh now I can't help but wonder why you
Had to get my hopes so high

You moved on I understand
I just hope you think about me
When you hold his hand

I really hope you think about it
And give me another shotI really hope that night wasn't
The only chance I got
I really hope you think about me
Once you screw up what you've got
Oh now I can't help but wonder why you
Had to get my hopes so high
I can't help but wonder why you
Had to get my hopes so high

Consistent

If I changed in every way
Would you change, too?
Would it take away the pain
That I've endured from you?
They say two wrongs don't make a right
But two rights could cure all wrongs
And if we tried to make things right
Well, it wouldn't take us long

Now we've become strangers
Playing a winless game
I know everyone changes
But why couldn't you stay the same?

If I changed who I am
Would you change you?
I'll try the best with what I can
But a relationship takes two
They say two wrongs don't make a right
But two rights could cure all wrongs
And if we tried to make things right...
Well, it's taken way too long

Now we've become strangers
Playing a winless game
I know everyone changes
But why couldn't you stay the same?

I just need someone to be
I just need someone to be
Consistent

Now we've become strangers
Playing a winless game
I know everyone changes
But why couldn't you just stay the same?

I just need someone to be
I just need someone to be
I fear you've grown out of me
I just need someone to be
Consistent

Meaning of Life

I've been on a mental journey
and gone through some mental strife
All my questions leave me wounds'
and the answers twist the knife
Everyone's so caught up with what's wrong and what's right
I've taken it upon myself to find the meaning of life

Now my mind has reached a dead end
I don't know where to go
I'm suddenly questioning
everything I know
And the more I search
the more I find I've been wrong
For so long
For so long

If you find the meaning of life don't let me know
If you find the meaning of life don't let me know

I've been going back and forth
on what I think I believe
Everyone's been telling me
my mind's been deceived
With all this constant arguing
nothing will be achieved
I've realized the true meaning is
how it is perceived

I'm no longer at a dead end
I'll find a way to go
All of life's answers
I will never know
Whether I am right
or whether I am wrong
I'll carry on
I'll carry on

If you find the meaning of life don't let me know
If you find the meaning of life don't let me know

If you find the meaning of life don't let me know
If you find the meaning of life don't let me know

Living on a Broken Dream

I finally found something to hold on to
I had a dream, but awoke too soon
In this life, wishes don't come true
But I found some truth in you

Yes I know sometimes it seems
I'm living on a broken dream
When I can't find hope in my darkest days
Your light helps me find a way

When I feel alone and have accepted defeat
You lift me up back to my feet
In this life where nothing is guaranteed
Your hope is all I'd ever need

Yes I know sometimes it seems
I'm living on a broken dream
When I can't find hope in my darkest days
Your light helps me find a way

No, I can't give up now
You've kept me holding on somehow
I need someone to save me
From this insomnia keeping me from my dreams
From my dreams

Yes I know sometimes it seems
I'm living on a broken dream
When I can't find hope in my darkest days
Your light helps me find a way

When I can't find hope in my darkest days
Your light helps me find a way

Still Up

I can't fall asleep tonight
I'm too worried about all the things I haven't done right
So if I've ever made that smile fade
You know I'll do anything to take the hurt away
Take it away

So I was awake and just wondering
If you were still up and wanted to see me
tonight
Let's stay up late, talk about anything
And go anywhere we want to be
tonight
Make me feel alive

You can't fall asleep tonight
I want to be there for you to make everything all right
I know life gets harder every day
But tonight is all that matters anyway
Anyway

So I was awake and just wondering
If you were still up and wanted to see me
tonight
Let's stay up late, talk about anything
And go anywhere we want to be
tonight
Make me feel alive

I'm just so tired of being alone
I've had enough of feeling locked up at home
Tonight

So I was awake and just wondering
If you were still up and wanted to see me
tonight
Let's stay up late, talk about anything
And go anywhere we want to be
tonight
Make me feel alive

Turn Out Fine

Without a doubt I've fallen
It's not so easy to get up this time
With all the things you've said
And all you've done wrong
I've been hanging around
Much too long
But that's just what I do

Everyone keeps telling me
Everything will be alright
I've believed every word they've said
Until tonight

I'm still waiting on the day
When everything will turn out fine
And after everything I can't believe
I've been waiting after all this time
I'm still waiting on the day
When everything will turn out fine
And after all I've been waiting for all this time
I'm leaving everything behind

Without a doubt I've fallen
Despite all the hope that I had this time
In spite of the things I've said
And all I've done wrong
I don't deserve this pain all along
It's time for something new

Everyone's been telling me
Everything will be alright
I've believed every word they've said
Until tonight

I'm still waiting on the day
When everything will turn out fine
And after everything I can't believe
I've been waiting after all this time
I'm still waiting on the day
When everything will turn out fine
And after all I've been waiting for all this time
I'm leaving everything behind

If you won't give me your whole heart
I can't keep giving mine
Through all the times I've hoped and prayed
My hope has only kept me blind
Despite the times I've been betrayed
Someday I will be fine
After all it's just a matter of time

Hey Baby Girl

What did I do wrong
To make you not want to see me again?
We were going so strong
It was much too early to end
It just takes so long
For my heart to mend

But it's OK
'Cause I know someday
I can find a way
Back into your heart
That's why I say

Hey baby girl
Remind me how to love
Could you be the girl
That I've always dreamed of?
If I give you my heart
It will tear me apart
If you don't feel the same
Maybe I'm better off this way

Or so I say
Remind me how to smile
Lord knows it sure has
Been a while
Since I've been on my groove
And I've felt in style

But it's OK
'Cause I know someday
I will find a way
Back into your heart
Oh you make me say

Hey baby girl
Remind me how to love
Could you be the girl
That I've always dreamed of?
If I give you my heart
It will tear me apart
If you don't feel the same
Maybe I'm better off this way

This way
I'm better off this way

Hey baby girl
Remind me how to love
Could you be the girl

Lonely Night

It's just another lonely Friday night
And my way out is just out of sight
But the urge to stay inside
Is so hard to fight

When the some falls down I wonder
If I'll see the morning light
After this eternity
Of solitude tonight
Somebody call me up
So I don't feel so confined
Alone with these thoughts
Going through my mind

It's just another lonely Friday night
And my way out is just out of sight
But the urge to stay inside
Is so hard to fight
It's just another lonely Friday night
And nothing that I do feels right
'Cause I'm lonely
On this lonely night

So shall I wait here now
For someone new to rescue me tonight?
And if I fall again
Will I get back up alright?
So somebody call me up
If you would be so inclined
And help me find a way to lose these thoughts
Stuck in my mind

It's just another lonely Friday night
And my way out is just out of sight
But the urge to stay inside
Is so hard to fight
It's just another lonely Friday night
And nothing that I do feels right
'Cause I'm lonely
On this lonely night

If you're gonna call me up
I hope you call me soon
You may not know this
But I'm torn up over you
But it's fine, I'm fine, I'm fine
I have to keep telling myself
I'm just lonely and tired
Of needing your help

When Summer Comes

Do you remember that night
When I asked you about us?
You said it all seemed too good to be true
Did I fall for the same old tricks
And the same old lies?
Why must love be pain's disguise?
When I looked into your eyes
I swear I knew you

When you said too good to be true
You were right for one of us
I guess my baby steps
Were just too much of a rush
Could you not handle my affection
Or is there something else going on?
I'm starting to believe that
They all leave when summer comes

There must be something with the season
Or you were just afraid to grow fond
You made me disappear
With a wave of your wand
But with you there was no magic
Just one big illusion all along
It seems we both have a hard time remembering
That I did nothing wrong

When you said too good to be true
You were right for one of us
I guess my baby steps
Were just too much of a rush
Could you not handle my affection
Or is there something else going on?
I'm starting to believe that
They all leave when summer comes

With the way history repeats itself
It seems every girl's the same
As soon as the sun comes out
She'll leave without any shame
Is it everyone else or is it me?
Would someone please care to explain?
I still can't believe just how quickly
Everything can change

When you said too good to be true
You were right for one of us
I guess my baby steps
Were just too much of a rush
My heart was nearly broken

Love You More

Love You More

I can't help but notice we've drifted from where we used to be
Only time will tell how far we've strayed
By the way our lives are changing my hope begins to fade
But I won't give up on the progress that we've made

I can't deny
Yes I know that it's obvious that I

I love you more than you love me
And it seems that may always be
I need you more than you seem to need
But I won't give up that easily

I tried to give you space but the time apart kills me
Now we're running out of things to say
By the way my mood keeps changing my joy never stays
But the darkest nights are still followed by day

What's left to gain?
It's obvious that the fact still remains

I love you more than you love me
And it seems that may always be
I need you more than you seem to need
But I won't give up that easily

What's left to gain?
It's obvious that the fact still remains

I love you more than you love me
And it seems that may always be
I need you more than you seem to need
But I won't give up that easily
No I won't give up that easily

Can't Help Falling in Love

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you?

Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you
