Track Name: What I Need
I've got plans to make
But planning might be risky
I've got time to waste
if you will waste it with me
And I know
I dont
know you well
but this could
be good
I can tell

So won't you keep me company please?

Lately I've been spending my time
under the covers
wishing you were
hiding with me
wash away the world cause
nothing that I've ever felt
compares to what is happening now
maybe I am crazy
but I'd like to be your girl

So strange to finally feel like what I need

is there
and I'm no longer scared
yeah all my inhibitions
vanish into the night air
and you and me
will be what we will be
only time will tell
so I guess we'll see

twenty years
is long to wait
I've battled broken hearts
I'm great
at being really independent
but its not as fun as
sharing songs
and sharing thoughts
and making out in parking lots
and being so inspired by the things that we could do

So keep me by your side, i'll stick with you,

I swear
cause I'm no longer scared
and all my inhibitions
vanish into the night air
and you and me
will be what we will be
only time will tell
so I guess we'll see

and all the problems we have to endure
I've been through all kinds of problems before
and these are nothing at all I assure you
the good outweighs the bad, times a million yeah!

I don't care
cause I'm no longer scared
and all my inhibitions
vanish into the night air
and you and me
will be what we will be
only time will tell
so I guess we'll see
Track Name: Daybreak (acoustic)
Well the day breaks
and I play dead
cause I can't fake
that my empty bed
isn't lonely in the mornings without you

and I'm back where
I was before
and the game's fair
if you're keeping score
but we aren't, are we...

Slowly
my doubts begin to surface
So tell me
if all of this is worth it

but I like
what I've found
keep me around

and the day's short
so I drive fast
and I've long since
forgot my past
but something's
got me hesitating now

but I'll stay here
and I'll stay still
and I'll stay with you
if you say you will
let me rest my tired head next to yours

and I'm missing
what I never had
second guessing
what my insticts said
when they told me
I've got nothing to fear.

cause I don't.
and I won't.
I wish you were here.
Track Name: Try to Understand (acoustic)
Well I'm sitting here in silence
and I'm feeling so discouraged.
'Cause I only want to call you,
but I just don't have the courage.

And it seems like only yesterday,
things were going fine.
It's funny how our lives can change
in only seconds time.

And I know I'll miss the bad jokes,
and the way you never called.
I know I'll miss the way your TV glowed blue on the wall
as we lay there in the darkness.
Try to understand it all.
Understand it all.
Couldn't understand at all.

I'm sorry that I never could
quite say this to your face.
Always hiding behind melody lines,
hooks that keep me safe.

And I know this may be catchy
but I know you can't relate,
so what's possible's impossible,
and that I won't debate.

But I know I'll miss the bad jokes,
and the way you never called.
I know I'll miss the way your TV glowed blue on the wall
as we lay there in the darkness.
Try to understand it all.
Understand it all.
Couldn't understand at all.

So don't take this the wrong way.
This is nothing like the past.
I'm fine and I am okay
with the fact that this won't last.
And I'll try to fix my problem,
sorry I was so afraid
of what could've been,
what should've been,
oh what a mess I've made...

'Cause I know I'll miss the bad jokes,
and the way you never called.
I know I'll miss the way your TV glowed blue on the wall
as we lay there in the darkness.
Try to understand it all.
Understand it all.
Couldn't understand at all.
Track Name: Break My Heart (acoustic)
And another day goes by
where I'm stuck still wondering why
I'm in the passenger seat
of a car that's going nowhere.

I could sit here by your side,
or I could take a chance and try
my best
to find someone
who doesn't let me down.

And it's time
to hear the words that I've been saying.
Nevermind
my promises before.
We could try
to fix these ties before they're broken.

Say my name
and I am there,
but I still don't know what I'm here for.

And you know that being happy
doesn't have to be this hard.
Don't you see with every risk you take
you go and break my heart?

I can't stand here any longer
simply nodding soft and slow,
'cause I know
that doing nothing is worse than letting go.

And it's time
to hear the words that I've been saying.
Nevermind
my promises before.
We could try
to fix these ties before they're broken.

Say my name
and I am there,
but I still don't know what I'm here for.
Track Name: The Disappearing Act (mixtape version)
Many many weeks
And I'm still sleeping on my own
Waking to the whispers of the night
And I'm finding out the secrets
That I wish I'd never known
Keep me at a distance, I'm alright

But I'm lying to keep me afloat
And I'm trying to keep my eyes closed
Soon the dark will be gone
And the right won't feel wrong
But I'm dying to know where you go, oh

Many many times
I've wrestled thoughts of giving up
Swear I'd give it all to you tonight
But I've been told by many
Not to trust the one you love
Keep them at a distance. Yes, thats right

But I'm lying to keep me afloat
And I'm trying to keep my eyes closed
Soon the dark will be gone
And the right wont feel wrong
But I'm dying to know where you go, oh

So I'm lying to keep me afloat
And I'm trying to keep my eyes closed
Soon the dark will be gone
And the right wont feel wrong
But I'm dying to know where you go

Where you go, where you go
Track Name: The End (mixtape version)
Boy, you make it easy to forget we ever met
All this talk of keepin' touch, there's been no talkin' yet
So tell me when you're ready, man, and I'll call you my friend
But I don't mind
Calling this the end

Boy, you make it easy for a girl to lose her head
Losing sleep, and losing time, hey, losers never win
So shake my hand, call it a tie, and I'll call you my friend,
But I don't mind
Calling this the end

Boy, you make it easy for a memory to bend
Fact and fiction fading into one confusing blend
So I'll remember good things now, and I'll call you my friend
But I don't mind
Calling this the end

There are people who have changed my life
And there are people I have left behind
If you ain't up to it, I'll let it die
But it's up to you
to change my mind

Boy, you've got it easy, leaving, starting over fresh
Abandoning beginnings that you brought to life and left
So pack your bags and say goodbye, and call me sometime, friend
'Cause I don't mind
Calling this the end

The End.
