Track Name: The Same Way
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
Track Name: Hear Me Out
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
Track Name: Haunting Me
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
Track Name: I Still Love You
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
Track Name: Scuppers
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
Track Name: Explanation
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
