Track Name: you're the dream
you're the dream that keeps getting farther
you're the goal that keeps getting harder
you're the star i can't reach no matter
you're the one

maybe you're a waste in retrospect
but truthfully, i feel like i'm losing respect
there are no words i can say
there's only the tip of this blade

you're the dream that keeps getting farther
you're the goal that keeps getting harder
you're the star i can't reach no matter
you're the one

maybe when i get there, i won't want you
pull back, push away, refuse the goods
maybe my body will reject you
and find you not worth the trouble too

so is there a point when i stop
thinking i'd be able to fill in the gap
please tell me when i can just give up
don't tell me that there's just one more lap

maybe you're a waste in retrospect
but truthfully, i feel like i'm losing respect
there are no words i can say
there's only the tip of this blade

you're the dream that keeps getting farther
you're the goal that keeps getting harder
you're the star i can't reach no matter
you're the one
Track Name: somethin 2 tell u (with JrSAMPLES)
you knocked on my door
you said not to follow
you said you can't stay
while i fix u lemonade

if you want, you can go
something i got to tell you
but i guess it can wait too

when you made me lie
down on my side tonight
as your mind took flight
i thought of the long drive

if you want, you can go
something i got to tell you
but i guess it can wait too

i might just leave
without your permission, dear
i might just take my things
and disappear

if you want, i can go
something i got to tell you
but i guess it can wait too
Track Name: never too late
gonna go downtown
meet up
make love tonight
are you gonna
be on your way
by now

i won't have to wait
and have the time to change
my mind and make my escape

gonna be downtown
meet up
make love tonight
are you gonna
be the one i want

gonna be with you
lie down
hands tied tonight
are you gonna
can you make me feel good

take me by the hand
and be my man
tell me how it's done
that i'm the only one
make me feel safe
it's never too late
yeah it's never too late

gonna wake alone
go home
i'm sure of it
and i'm gonna
feel like shit
somehow

gonna wait alone
by the phone
like a fool
and just forget
that you never
even knew my name

take me by the hand
and be my man
tell me how it's done
that i'm the only one
make me feel safe
it's never too late
yeah it's never too late
Track Name: makeup
just another day
hit the snooze and sleep until eight
just another way
find an excuse to make your escape

you wake up
wear your makeup
you drive to the club
you drink and dance alone
you go home
and pass out
in the couch and
dream of the unknown

just another kind
of lie to pretend that you didn't hear
just another line
you tell yourself to stop the tears
just another sign
you say it's unavoidably clear
just another crime
just pass, there's nothing to see here

you wake up
wear your makeup
you drive to the club
you drink and dance alone
you go home
and pass out
in the couch and
dream of the unknown

you wake up
wear your makeup
call some friends to meet up
in the bar so you don't feel alone
you crawl home
and pass out
in his arms and
dream of the unknown

you wake up
smear some makeup
cut yourself in the legs
hide your scars behind your skirt
you stay home
hide in the dark and
take some meds
and hang up the telephone
Track Name: a sigh of relief
i better say my goodbyes
the clock is ticking and you know why
now the end is very near
you no longer have to suffer dear

when the time
comes to go
you can hold
onto your soul

when the time
comes to leave
you can breathe
a sigh of relief

i knew this for a little while
that our love doesn't have to survive
we can go our separate ways
shake hands and call it a day

when the time
comes to go
you can hold
onto your soul

when the time
comes to leave
you can breathe
a sigh of relief

in the future, it may dawn on you
that our love was once very true
you may want to call me, say hello
but don't get stupid and just let it go

when the time
comes to leave
you can breathe
a sigh of relief

when the time
comes to go
you can hold
onto your soul
Track Name: take care of me
she chose this motel
been driving past by
so many times
on her way to work
she entered the room
felt the cold air
enter her throat
while her tears flowed
then she called you
will you take care of me
finish the job
if i fail in the morning
your very best friend
needed your help
but you saw her there
and called 911
they brought her back
with a machine
acting like lungs
she's already gone
but she called you
will you take care of me
finish the job
if i fail in the morning
so instead of grief
you suffer with guilt
watching the lines
on the screen
but she called you
will you take care of me
finish the job
if i fail in the morning
she doesn't speak
she doesn't move
so you pick a day
you visit alone
inject her vein
with something to stop
her beating heart
and just let her go
took care of her
like she took care of me
Track Name: i want you
i want you
to take this lesson away from it
i want you
to feel you've learned something from me

some kind of
love that forgives everything
some kind of
love that sees you for who you are

i want you
to breathe some fire into the dark
i want you
to light the tunnel so we can go far

some kind of
fear just stops me short of jumping
some kind of
fear just stops me short of running

and i never thought i'd ever feel this way
and i never thought i'd ever be the same
with someone else
other than myself
with someone else
other than myself

i need you
to promise me that you will stay
i need you
to make a pledge that you won't break

some kind of
love that rises once it dies
some kind of
love that will keep me alive

i need you
to never stop thinking good of me
i need you
to keep believing in everything

some kind of
sight that keeps me from going blind
some kind of
faith that keeps the fight alive

and i never thought i'd ever feel this way
and i never thought i'd ever be the same
with someone else
other than myself
with someone else
other than myself
Track Name: ultrasound
i have made the journey alone
carrying a pouch of stones
they feel like tiny explosions
now i'm swept up by emotions
the test is over and i failed
like a train, i'm derailed
and i have no choice but to face
the reaper knocks with no grace
i ask you where i go from here
do i get better or disappear
at the end of the day, there's something
the stories that keep me from quitting
i ask you where i go from here
do i get better or disappear
threads of words that run in my head
piece them together and i'm not dead
Track Name: i see it
i know it
i feel it
something has changed
something is never gonna be the same
i hate being the one who
stays fixed in the same place
being the one who says the same things to you
just to be understood
just looking to feel good
i see it
i know it
i feel it
it's here
something has changed
something is never gonna be the same
i hate being the one who
stays fixed in the same place
being the one who says the same things to you
just to be understood
just looking to feel good
Track Name: let it come true
when you're gone
when you're alone
driving your car
looking out into horizons
you don't recognize
take me with you
let it come true
the dream that we once knew
let it come true
let it come true
when you're gone
when you're alone
wishing you could
take it all back
just turn around
come back to town
take me with you
let it come true
the dream that we once knew
let it come true
