The Same Way 03:21
Downtown I’m going downtown without her On the Brown Line There’s too much time to think about her And Chicago She’s not as pretty without her And the Bike Lane Is more aggressive without her And Hey Why don’t you love me the same way I said Hey Why don’t you love me the same way And you think I’m a loser But I’m not I got money in the bank And you think I abuse Ya But I don’t I just beat myself up You think I’m a time bomb Well you better step back cause I’m about to blow up You think you’re a heart throb But you’re not, you’re just like any other girl And you’re not the only one And I don’t need you And you’re not the only one I’ll find another girl And you’re not the only one You really think I won’t? And you’re not the only one I got options

Hear Me Out 02:37
Hear me out I’m so happy that I met you And hear me out There’s nothing that I ever wanted to do to hurt you And maybe there’s a place outside Of my mind where I can get to But maybe there’s this place inside Of my heart where I just won’t let you And I don’t want to lose your love I’d rather be dead But I know that you’d be better off with someone else instead And I don’t want to lose your love I’d rather be dead But I know that I’d be happier with someone else instead Hear me out I’m so happy that I left you And hear me out There’s nothing that I ever wanted to do to hurt you And maybe there’s this place outside Of my mind where I can get to But maybe there’s this place inside Of my heart where I just won’t let you And I don’t want to lose your love I’d rather be dead But I know that you’d be better off with someone else instead And I don’t want to lose your love I’d rather be dead But I know that I’d be happier with someone else instead And hear me out I’m so happy that I met you And hear me out There’s nothing that I ever wanted to do to hurt you

Haunting Me 03:39
Oh I wish that you would hear me now Cause I think I’ve finally figured out Who I needed to be After all of these years And I know there was a lot of love That was lost because of what I’d done But my mind it was weak Oh baby can’t you see, can't you I can’t leave Cause you’re all that I need And I can’t sleep Cause you’re haunting me And I wish that you could see me now Because I know you would be proud Of the man I’ve become Despite all that I’ve done And I wish that you could be with me Just the way it happens in my dreams When I drowning in light And you’re right by my side Sayin, “ I won’t leave Cause you’re all that I need And Fall to sleep No more haunting dreams.” And I can’t Leave Cause your all that I need And I can’t sleep Cause you’re haunting me
4.
Have you ever had that feeling of doubt When you wonder if your life will work itself out The moment that I can’t take my eyes off of you Oh we start to kick and shout and I just can’t get through And the other day was just another fight We always try to figure out who is right Oh well maybe I should have f*&^ing watched my mouth And maybe we can still try and work this out And I know that there’s a lot to do Baby but I still love you I said, baby but I, baby but I, baby but I still love you I said, baby but I, baby but I, baby but I still love you And you’re the only girl who makes me fall apart And you’re the only girl who could break my heart And you’re the only girl who can get me high Cause you’re the only girl who knows how to love me right And the other day was just another fight We always try to figure out who was right Oh well maybe I should have f*&^ing watched my mouth And maybe we can still try and work this out And I know that there’s a lot to do Baby but I still love you Oh baby but I, baby but I, baby but I still love you Oh baby but I, baby but I, baby but I still love you Oh baby but I, baby but I, baby but I still love you

Scuppers 04:17
How can you dream When your childhood screams That it’s over And nothing seems just When the young turn to dust Before you And I don’t want to cry No, I don’t want to feel the pain It’s hard to sleep at night Knowing that I’ll never hold you again No one could know The memories I’ll hold Forever Like warming my toes A piano so cold We were younger And I don’t want to cry No, I don’t want to face the pain It’s hard to sleep at night Knowing that I’ll never see you again Someone to hold When everyone was so Bothered A best friend to me When everything seemed So much harder

Explanation 03:39
It’s oh so hard to breathe And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening And I feel so alone And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening This song’s an explanation For my feelings that don’t show For why they hide inside my skull Never wanting to be known There’s security in me And I know that I won’t abandon myself Once I open my heart There is no escape There’s no promise in this world That you will keep me safe You’ll have the key to hurt me And I will not rely on myself It’s oh so hard to breathe And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening And I feel so alone And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening On top of that insecurity Are the burdens of unknown Like where am I going? What careers will I hold? It’s all moving too fast And I can’t be left behind There’s stress in not knowing Where this world is taking me All these questions still unanswered Will I ever be free? No I just hide behind this image of strength I've created for me It’s oh so hard to breathe And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening And I feel so alone And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening And when will I stop hiding From these feelings that I have? I’m not alone and I never will be So can’t I just relax But my mind it tells me no And my heart, it won’t let you go And Maybe I’m just paranoid These voices in my head Screaming don’t you give up anything Your mind cannot be read But by pleading the fifth I will only incriminate me It’s oh so hard to breathe And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening And I feel so alone And it’s oh so hard to tell you what’s happening
