Track Name: Matches
I've got my loose ends
and matches to burn them
i've got bad habits
and reasons to kick them
i guess you were right
i guess you were right

that friends aren't forever and things aren't the same
i wish i was wrong but its me that's to blame
because i remember hanging around
making an effort to drown out the sound
to drown it all out

i've got my loose ends
and matches to burn them
i've got bad habits
and reasons to kick them
i've got my vices
and maybe you do
i've got my whole life
and you've got it too

i was afraid of anything real
i was afraid of being alone
i would surround myself with problems to forget i had my own.
Track Name: Sad Songs
the other night i had this dream
that a stranger came to me
and told me that i'm not who i should be
so i asked him what he meant and he disappeared right then
and i woke up in a sweat
the next few days went by while i tried to figure why
i couldn't sleep that night

so i walked around outside to the places that i love
to see if i could find an answer but surely enough
i found nothing at all so i waited for your call
just to remind me that i felt something at all

and it hit me just like a brick or a kick straight to the teeth
this isn't me i'm sick of singing sad songs
this isnt me i'm sick of singing sad songs

so i thought about my friends and the things that drag me down
i thought about my family and i thought about how
i never wanna study but you make me anyway
i never open up but you still take away the pain
and it isn't that bad, this life that we have
the beers in the backyard early nights in bed
it isnt that bad, this life that we have
the hope in your eyes takes the fear from head

and it hit me just like a brick or a kick straight to the teeth
this isn't me i'm sick of singing sad songs
this isnt me i'm sick of singing sad songs

this isnt me
im sick of singing
sad, sad songs.
Track Name: If People Were Rain
I would walk until I die
If it meant you were by my side
and I would swim across the sea
If it would bring me where I knew you would be
And that might make me a little bit crazy, but that's alright
We'll lose our minds at the same time
and watch as the years go by
and when my brain fails to retain
the memories or my own name
or when my bones begin to ache
I swear you'd do anything to take my place

So I won't let you down
I won't let you down
I won't let you down
I won't let you down

And I don't think it matters where we've been before
Cause pain is just perspective in the end
A couple lousy months inside a hospital
Is worth it if it led me to your hand
everything is easier than it seemed
the pieces just fell together naturally
and i would do anything to make you believe in me
the way I believe that you're all that I need

So I won't let you down
I won't let you down
I won't let you down
I won't let you down
Track Name: So Many Activities
Well it might be kind of odd that I think the way I do
but it doesn't even matter cause I think that way for you
So what, so what if I'd rather not go out cause I'd prefer
to stay at home then go get drunk at someone's house
Its not that I'm afraid to do the things they ask me to
its just that I am getting tired cause they never follow through

and it is great where we ended up they think they know me
but they don't give a fuck
it feels like i belong for the first time in so long
so if i am mistaken then I just love being wrong

the bags under my eyes will dissipate in time
but what will remain is I chose to live my life
Who cares, who cares that I don't fit in
As long as I fit next to you the rest makes perfect sense
The rest makes perfect sense

and it is great where we ended up they think they know me
but they don't give a fuck
it feels like i belong for the first time in so long
so if i am mistaken then I just love being wrong

So it might be kind of weird that I never act my age
because everyone loves drugs, well I think it's just a phase
The two of us just me and you sitting in my living room
Is anything but boring in my point of view

and it is great where we ended up they think they know me
but they don't give a fuck
it feels like i belong for the first time in so long
so if i am mistaken then I just love being wrong

well it might be kind of odd that I think the way I do
but it doesn't even matter cause I think that way for you
Track Name: Home
I love the way you laugh I love the songs you play in my stereo
I love the things you say and the place you take me where noone goes
the way climbed a mountain just to tell ourselves we could
and then spent hours at the top etching our memories in the woods
the way your face scrunches up when you're smiling too much
and the way you're not afraid to tell me when I talk too much
cause I'm not great with words but

I could write a million songs
That wouldn't say what they needed to
Cause there are so few words
and I see infinite in you
I never thought somebody's hands could feel so much like home
Cause if you were an ocean
I would sail it all alone to see you

You read all of my books just because you know I've read them
and you compliment my looks though
my nose is bent and smiles' broken
I love the way it feels like we grew up together
though we were states away
and how I hope that in my old age I will feel the same
It's the little things you do that you might think I take for granted
but the truth is they're the reason I've become the man I am
I'm not great with words, but

I could write a million songs
That wouldn't say what they needed to
Cause there are so few words
and I see infinite in you
I never thought somebody's hands could feel so much like home
Cause if you were an ocean
I would sail it all alone to see you

I never thought somebody's hands could feel so much like home
I never thought somebody's hands could feel so much like home
I never thought a pair of eyes could look so much like home
and now I look into the future and see I'm not alone
I'm with you
