Track Name: Let's Leave
Well I never took a shortcut out
I don't know about you
And looking back is so damn hard
But I still manage to
And I'm quick to call you over
When I'd rather call you mine
So I'll meet you in the middle
I just a little time

These days are keeping me up at night
No way you're taking me down
Let's stay awake through the morning light
Let's leave this town

And you keep me for the lonely days
I swear to God it's true
I can't blame you 'cause I've done the same thing
Many times to you
There's a truth that we cannot deny
'Cause fate don't lie, my friend
You're the reason for my rise, my fall,
My beginning, and my end.

These days are keeping me up at night
No way you're taking me down
Let's stay awake through the morning light
Let's leave this town.
Track Name: July 25, 2007
I woke up at seven
Rode the bus until eleven
Called ex-lovers, and my brother
Hoping someone was awake
Circled around the campus
In a t-shirt and pajamas
As I stared out the window
And my heart began to break

But it's all good,
'Cause I'm no good
And believe me,
You don't need me.
It's a big world,
And I'm old news to you.

I started healing
Soon as I regained the feeling
In my fingers pressed so hard
Against that steel the night before
I wrote another love song
But my heart, it wouldn't sing along
My head agreed, I didn't need
To try and right the wrongs

But it's all good,
'Cause I'm no good
And believe me,
You don't need me.
It's a big world,
And I'm old news to you.

I woke up at seven
Rode the bust until eleven
Called ex-lovers, and my brother,
Hoping someone was awake
Track Name: Yer Goin' Down
I've got a feeling
I know it all too well
I'm getting even
And I'm going straight to hell
For all the thoughts that I'm thinking
I think I'll stick around
I found a ship to sink
And you're going down, down down

I've got a feeling
I think I need your touch-
-me if you feel it
Oh god it hurts so much
To be the bearer of bad news
We barely left the ground
I know you did what you had to
But you're going down, down, down

So lie your way out of this one again
Cry? I think I won't this time.
I'll take you for all that you are.

All that you are
All that you are
A fading scar
Won't leave a mark

I'm off the deep end
Still swimming fast and hard
Against your current
But my current state
Won't get me far
I'll keep you closer now
You bring me down
But I don't care
Don't bother lookin for me
You won't find me anywhere
You won't find me anywhere
You won't find me anywhere

I've got a feeling
I know it all too well
I'm getting even
And I'm going straight to hell
For all the thoughts that I'm thinking
I think I'll stick around
I found a ship to sink
And you're going down, down down
Track Name: Let Me Go (Live at Wonderroot)
Stranded in my dark apartment
My heart can't fight the fire you started
A war between the best of us
But I'll look up if you look up

We'll say our prayers and curse the sky
It always hurts to say goodbye
But all is for the best, you know
And I will go, so let me go

Let me go

My rusty strings will never make
The sounds I heard with you that day
The music running through our veins
A tune that I just can't explain

We'll clear our throats and sing along
There's nothing like a leaving song
But all is for the best, you know
And I will go, so let me go

Let me go

You were the one
I wanted more than you could give
You were the one
Who said we couldn't live like this
You were the one
Who made the plans before we landed

All is for the best, you know
So why won't you just let me go?

Let me go
Track Name: Stay Right Now
I've got a knack for moving forward, a history of not
A permanent solution that I've found but haven't got
A face against my fingertips, a feeling I have learned
'Cause a lifetime full of liars taught me
I don't ever get what I deserve

So I'm staring to the silence and wearing just a smile
I'll take what you will give me, be it inches, be it miles
'Cause I'm here for the duration, the frustration, and the trial
I'm not leaving in the morning
Even though I know you're leaving in a while

It's okay
And I'm fine
There's no way
And no time
So just stay
For right now
Right now

The days are passing slowly, and I'm still on my own
But with this unfamiliar feeling, suddenly I'm not alone
And I'm missing all that emptiness that got me through my teens
If you don't mind me being honest
I just don't know what that means

And for the first time in my life, I can't sing what's on my tongue
'Cause it's scary when I say it, or when you say it, or when I hear it
Sung by all those people who have felt what I can't hide
No solution to this problem
So just listen to me now and don't decide

It's okay
And I'm fine
There's no way
And no time
So just stay
For right now
Right now
Track Name: Boston (The End pt. 2)
I don't care where you're coming from.
I'm never going back.
You could beg
And you could plead
But I wouldn't recommend that.
The day has come
To say my piece
But calm and quiet, I will keep
Your secret's mine
And I won't be the one
To try and raise the dead
So rest your worried head
Remember what I said
You chose to do
The things you did
Back then
And this is just the end
My stranger, not my friend
No, you are not my friend.

I know, I know about the girls before
I know, I know what happened on my floor
So stay in Boston, babe. Don't hold your breath.
I already forgot we ever met.
