Track Name: Destiny Saves
she waits, tonight
for me to decide
where we're going
she hates not knowing
i'm just scared to think
that my intentions are weak
she's something steady
i'm just not ready

probably, someday
i'll regret letting her go
miss that feeling
of being needed
but i don't wanna wonder
if there's someone just for me
i wanna know

i've always been
a bit short-sighted
live for tomorrow
i give and i borrow
so let me care
for your heart tonight
if you don't mind
just need it for a while

probably, someday
i'll regret letting her go
miss that feeling
of being needed
you'll think i gave
you all of my heart
i'm just being patient
while i'm waiting for her

well things happen 'cause they're supposed to
but how do we know what we're supposed to do
all i've ever done is follow my heart
now it's our better judgement that's tearing it apart

probably, someday,
i'll regret letting her go
miss that feeling
of being needed
but hopefully i'll find
what i've got in mind
or else i'll be looking back
on everything i've left behind
Track Name: Blind
she said, "open your eyes,
there's no use trying to hide."
"but the light's so bright," i said
then she lays her head back on my chest

the morning air is calm
and her skin is soft and warm
it's almost impossible
to get out of bed and let her go

she moves closer
and my heart beats faster
she looks at me like i'm all that matters
and now i'm lost in it
and i'm forgetting
what i was doing here in the first place

she thinks she knows me so well
but after all this she still can't tell
what's going on inside of my head
if i could speak i would have said

this can't last
things wont stay the same forever
our time has past
but we're blinded by each other

she said, "open your eyes,
there's no use trying to hide."
but the view is so blinding
i need to shut her out so i can think

she moves closer
and my heart beats faster
she looks at me like i'm all that matters
and now i'm lost in it
and i'm forgetting
what i was doing here in the first place

this can't last
things won't stay the same forever
our time has past
but we're blinded by each other

she moves closer
and my heart beats faster
she looks at me like i'm all that matters
and now i'm lost in it
and i'm forgetting
what i was doing here in the first place

she said, "close your eyes,
there's no use trying to fight it."
so i fall into the night
just like last time i tried to say goodbye
Track Name: Keep Selling Yourself
i'll commend you on your devotion
to the art of the superficial
it's your talent burying everything away
go on and hide your heart behind a pretty face
my heart was somewhere else
and my thoughts would always wander
it's not that i didn't care
you just couldn't quite hold me under
but i believe you'll go far
you've got everything you need
go chase those pretty boys
i'll find a girl with some empathy

i'll keep my words to myself
if you'll stay up on your shelf
yeah just keep selling yourself
girl, where's your soul, god must've forgot
but i can't hate you for what you're not
just keep your distance and i'll be alright

your picture perfect world
was shattered by distraction
your power trip was fueled
by the search for satisfaction
but you're just a little girl
and this is all i ever expected
i've always had my sights set
and you're hardly the perfect target
Track Name: Just Come Back
i called a girl crazy
'cause she never came home
but let's be realistic
you're a thousand miles away
and though it's really hard to say
i know that i won't always miss you
but i'm a boy and you're a girl
and you're bound to destroy my world
i guess it's a risk worth taking
but let's not think like that,
how 'bout you just come back

you told me i was stupid
'cause i couldn't decide
even though i told you not to wait for me
i guess you had it in your head
i wasn't better off dead
but i'm telling you i don't need rescuing
i just want summer to be gone
so i can have you in my arms
this forbidden thing is really draining
but let's not think like that,
how 'bout you just come back

girl, we've got time
to make everything alright
and i have faith
that these lonely days
will lead to something better

i told you i was sorry
but i couldn't make you blame me
you said it was all your fault
this feels like those nights
when all we had was our eyes
to tell each other we were meaningful
this wasn't supposed to happen
it's an uncontrolled reaction
but there's really nothing we can do
so let's not think like that,
how 'bout you just come back

sometimes i get the feeling
that your friends just keep me smiling
so i'll sing them to sleep
but i'm a drop of water
and you're my path of least resistance
and that's alright by me
we could go all night, you know
but the birds mean i better go
we gotta find some self control
but let's not think like that,
how 'bout you just come back
Track Name: Underneath the Sound
you were intent on making a move
and i was just biding my time
but you're static cling about inexplicable things
sometimes you've just got to let go
now her face in my wallet won't stop talking politics
when all i want for her is to know
that certainty kills, it is doubt that fulfills
all ways that you wish to grow

i'll figure out
the whys and the hows
don't you worry now
and i'll put them down
underneath the sound
and turn it up too loud

you were content with making demands
and i was just painting your fate
but happy's a season made shorter by reason
so don't envy those drawing the lines
Track Name: Heartbreaker
So you're a heartbreaker, they say
but it seems that these words are just hearsay
this just isn't your day
but there is good in learning the hard way

heartbreaker, i think
your fair skin will singe in this heat
let your sins breathe
your complexion lessens their degree

So you've got options, i've heard
there's nothing like having love to burn
but now it's your turn
heartbreaking can be anyone's verb

so take your pills
life's better fuzzy and surreal
put on those heels
and find out how falling really feels

but maybe you're on to something
happiness from ignorance in
the way life goes
from growing old

heartbreaker i hear
the nicest things fall on deaf ears
so save your tears
sentiments will shorten your career
Track Name: Hands
these hands never cease to amaze me
they could wield a blade or a woman's body
they could steal through your defenses
or they could strum to the same ends
these hands haven't been anywhere when you think
about all the places fingers could be
all the things their movements could express
all the times they've been washed of blood and regrets
each fingertip unique as a face
perhaps that's why we think it's our place
to feel as though no one's felt before
to touch even things we abhor
but what's hate if not to the brain
hands care less if they're subject to pain
they don't make rash decisions under fire
or get caught up in needless desire
wrapped up in nail and tender flesh
these muscles and tendons do their best
to keep me alive and well fed
serving the cause until death
these hands would kill to have a mind of their own
that way you would never be alone
that way they could always hold you close
with mittens they'd be invulnerable

these hands never cease to amaze me
they could wield a blade or a woman's body
they could steal through your defenses
or they could strum to the same ends
these hands haven't been anywhere when you think
about all the places fingers could be
all the things their movements could express
all the times they've been washed of blood and regrets
all the times they've been washed of a mess
all the times they've had their hand in regrets
all the times they've made good on threats
these hands

but what's hate if not to the brain
hands care less if they're subject to pain
they don't make rash decisions under fire
get caught up in needless desire
these hands would kill to have a mind of their own
that way you would never be alone
that way they could always hold you close
these hands
Track Name: Exploding
now i know it's over
i know there's nothing i can do
but would you think about it
for a while for me

i know you're leaving
i know you've got your reasons
but would you think about
what's gonna happen please

tonight's gonna roll around
and you're gonna wonder
if what you did was right
and where am i?
tonight's gonna be
the longest night i've ever lived
and the most empty

i'm hanging on to
every word that you don't tell me
hoping you'll defy
what i know you feel inside

you say this hurts you
but i don't hear a word you say
i'm too busy keeping my insides
from exploding

on the way back to your house
i hit every red light
you told me i shouldn't come
well maybe you were right
but i've got so much to tell you
i couldn't possibly sleep
if you don't hear me

tonight's gonna roll around
and you're gonna wonder
if what you did was right
and where am i?
tonight's gonna be
the longest night we've ever lived
and the most empty

if you've got nothing else to say
i'll get out of your way
Track Name: Paradoxical Beginning
it's just one of these things
that i can't understand
i've got this cloudy head
and these useless hands
and you're stuck in a hole
in the back of my brain
paradoxically cause
and relief of my pain
there's a red-hot brand
of your name at my feet
i'm willing to burn
i just want you to see
that a simple love
is all that i need
cause i live for
the little things you say

goodnight, go to sleep
'cause don't you know what the morning means
more time to live, to love, to dream
i'll see you soon if you'll wait for me

it's just one of these things
that's not worth the pain
you see that i'm parched,
you're not willing to rain
and i'm stuck in the ground
in a mountain of words
somewhere you'd settle
if you needed a perch
there's a canvas dawn
that i thought you would like
near the foot of my bed
but now i'm seeing it right
a simple love
is all that i need
this is a beginning
and it's me saying

goodnight, go to sleep
cause don't you know what the morning means
more time to live, to love, to dream
i'll see you soon if you'll wait for me

goodnight go to sleep
i'll sing this song to you eventually
the words you speak turn the night air sweet
i'll miss you but i know you can't wait for me
