Track Name: History
Close your eyes and try to keep it together
its only bad if you’re awake
You try to reach out and touch me but
I’m not there cause I’ve finally found an escape
and even worse than that, you won’t know I’m gone
took it for granted all along
I’m gonna make a new history, and maybe then you will
finally see

That I don’t think there’s any way we’ll put it back together
you are stormy weather I’m still cold whenever
you and your anger I’m the person in the middle
I’m sure I’ll always hate you for this and then I’m
frozen now I can never move again
and you’ll always be there placin the blame on them
it was only ever you that kept my heart still beating
done with the story, I’m not repeating

I’ve been away since last december you remember the air when I left.
You said I’d pay the cost for walkin out, and that you’d show me what this pain’s about
but its been a long time and I haven’t paid a dime
or thought of you, or let you back in
I’m not a part of your history
Maybe now you can finally see

That I don’t think there’s any way we’ll put it back together
you are stormy weather I’m still cold whenever
you and your anger I’m the person in the middle
I’m sure I’ll always hate you for this and then I’m
frozen now I can never move again
and you’ll always be there placin the blame on them
it was only ever you that kept my heart still beating
done with the story, I’m not repeating

Well the fog is down and my heart is lifted
we’re talking less and I’ve told my friends I’m leaving town
My entire heart to you was gifted.
and I don’t think you’re seeing me around again

I don’t think there’s any way we’ll put it back together
No, I don’t think there’s any way we’ll put it back together again
Track Name: Disagree
I’ve seen this picture before
In my head
I’ve got this memory of you
By my bed

I know with me you tend to disagree
with everything I say
Nothing left to please you darlin
and in this lonely review
well I still regret nothing

My friends they say to find another
save my love for someone else
I kinda like the thought of hating you
and keeping this misery all to myself

I know with me you tend to disagree
with everything I say
Nothing left to please you darlin
and in this lonely review
well I still regret nothing

I know with you I tend to see right through
all the shit you say to me
and I want for nothing else
I know there’s love on the other side
but I kinda like the way you disagree
Track Name: Hard to Live
You’re having dreams of this life ending
You’ll close your eyes and go straight to heaven
You don’t you think you’ll last another day in this world
There’s too much pain coming from nowhere,
you take your leave there’s nothing out there
You reach for understanding with your
heart and your hands

Well I can carry you know
Knowing sometimes we forget
We can tell a different story,
No this isn’t over yet

I wish everything could be much better
no more breaking down and coming back together
You always gotta find that something take your love
and let it show
Well I know you heard me say
You can make it through some day
I wish everything could be much better
but sometimes this life is hard to live

You're asking questions faster than you
can find the answers
and its taking you taking you down
and you break away
from all you fear yeah, you’re still here

I wish everything could be much better
no more breaking down and coming back together
You always gotta find that something take your love
and let it show
Well I know you heard me say
You can make it through some day
I wish everything could be much better
but sometimes this life is hard to live

And I wish everything could be much better
no more breaking down, coming back together
You always gotta find that something deep in your soul
with your back against the wall, when you’re sure
you’ve lost it all
I wish
Track Name: City of Roses
You’re telling me a story
a story about living and you’re gonna live it up while you’re young for real
and every little picture that you took of you and me is falling down
and I just can't see or understand why you’re leaving
I just can’t believe what you said

At the end of the day, you are going away
in the frozen night, I finally found a way to say

That I will stand by you I’ll always keep you guarded
No one’s gonna take the love that I have built for you
and its a long way down to the city of roses
I may be gone tonight but I will be home
in the morning always waiting for you

Things were getting heavy, and we grew apart
I know sometimes life gets hard
now its time to let you go, for real
I was to young and I just couldn’t see
you’re eyes were saying something that I couldn’t believe
you’re bags were packed you were out the door
Young in love it ain’t enough anymore but

When who we are is who we are,
there’s never any changing that
its not a matter of love, its just a matter of fact

And I will stand by you I’ll always keep you guarded
No one’s gonna take the love that I have built for you
and its a long way down to the city of roses
I may be gone tonight but I will be home
in the morning always waiting for you

Its been raining in my head for days
I’m writing the words that don’t mean a thing
I’m working up the nerve to call you, you’re never coming back
before I know it I am out the door, I’m in my car
and just so you know, this happens every day
trying to figure out a way to say

That I will stand by you I’ll always keep you guarded
No one’s gonna take the love that I have built for you
and its a long way down to the city of roses
I may be gone tonight but I will be home
in the morning always waiting for you
