Track Name: Eyes Shut
wait around
to be let down
i'm just filling space
a familiar face

you wear your heart on your sleeve
that's what you always tell me
you need room to breathe
room without me

do you fear
that love is real
you can tell me now
just how you feel

i had a dream of you last night
it felt wrong but it felt right
i still don't know why
but you're still on my mind

if you could be my eyes
maybe you'd see it from my side
maybe you'd give me the time
to be a part of your life

do you fear
that love is real
you can tell me now
just how you feel
Track Name: Walking in Circles
never broke a heart
never broke a bone
never knew exactly
where to call home

i've been a rambler
i've been a gambler
making bets for you
regrets for you

now i'm walking in circles
back to my comfort of you
turning purple
holding my breath for you

take my heart again
break my heart again
i've got nothing left
i'm all out of breath

gotta find what i have lost
in me
need to find what i have lost
in you

choose the right this time
left has led me astray
but a little's not enough now
to get me to stay

take you out of my mind
there's no room for you there
go find a new home now
you're not welcome here

built a house for myself
fit for nobody else
choose to live alone
this is where i call home
Track Name: I'll Break for You
i don’t know what day it is
just another day
i haven’t talked to you
but maybe that’s ok

you feel so far away
don’t think i could reach you
even if i tried to
i don’t think i would get through

can you please forgive me
for making you feel so bad
for leading me on
for three years too fucking long

how embarrassing
to be your second thought
only wanting me
when you can’t get what you want

i’m afraid
not to seem strong
not to seem ok
i’ve been hiding so long

i see you in me every day
do you mind
that i
delicately constructed myself
for you, for you

please get back up on your pedestal
i’m not ready
to see you
as being
real yet
Track Name: Same Game
it’s always just a game with you
i’m always waiting for it to fall through
have you won yet?
can I give up yet?

i feel like you plot against me
just to test me

maybe i should open up
but i don’t wanna get my hopes up
won’t believe until i see
i’ve got no trust left in me

i’ll tell myself i’m not enough
so when you do
it won’t hurt as much

i always feel so dumb
being broken over
something that wasn't love

can’t say i’ve been fine
would you rather i lie
you’d rather see a fake smile
but the truth doesn’t feel as good as your denial

maybe i should just give up
like a race i’ll never win
down a tunnel that never ends
maybe i should just give in

i’ll tell myself i’m not the one
so that when you do
it won’t hurt as much

you couldn’t fake it
even if you tried
please tell me
it’ll be alright

even if it’s a lie
Track Name: In and Out
always torn between
leaving or staying
something is better than nothing

i don’t know what you want
but i’m tired of trying to be that

walk back in
just to walk away
i don’t wanna beg
but won’t you please stay

i know it’s not much
but i’ll take what i can get
coming in and out
just don’t leave yet

the days could pass us by
i’d still feel the same
and when i think of love
i still think of your name

you don’t know what you want
but i know that you don’t want me

i’m worried now
i can’t pretend
and if we start over
i know it’ll end again

so why’d you even call me
with nothing to say
i’m worried now
i can’t go back again

i know it’s not much
but i’ll take what i can get
you’re coming in and out
just don’t leave yet

if i saw you today
i don’t know what i’d say
i don’t wanna beg
but won’t you please stay
