Track Name: A Little Time
So I left that house in the summer
And I found a way to deal with the pain
I numbed my heart with what I could find
And i looked out the window again

Have you ever found something you wanted so bad
But you thought that it would kill you to wait
Well thats where I'm at, just sitting alone
And i feel my soul rotting away

So take it
Day by day
Minute by minute
I'll get where I'm going and i'll find what i need within it
Cause i miss what i've done
And i hate what I'm doing
But i guess i'll be alright
It just takes a little time
To get back that part of your life

So i wake up every morning
And the light shines through the shades
I try to keep my head up
But i just can't find the strength
Sometimes I feel it's hopeless
Sometimes i'll find a way
But the courage that one filled my heart
Is just a bleak shade of grey

So take it
Day by day
Minute by minute
I'll get where I'm going and i'll find what i need within it
Cause i miss what i've done
And i hate what I'm doing
But i guess i'll be alright
It just takes a little time
To get back that part of your life

So take it
Day by day
Minute by minute
I'll get where I'm going and i'll find what i need within it
Cause I hate who i've been
And i love what I'm doing
But i guess i'll be alright
It just takes a little time
To get back that part of your life.
Cause I hate who i've been
And i love what I'm doing
But i guess i'll be alright
It just takes a little time
To get back that part of your life
Track Name: Lives
So i've made up my mind
And its perfectly clear
I learned how to fight
But not how to fear
And i held back these tears
Behind ironclad walls
Open the floodgates
And watch the blues fall
So i've made up my mind
And its perfectly clear
I forgot how to love
Without her here

So i'll get back on my feet
Soles on the ground
My eyes are open now
So i can see this town
And i still feel the pain
It inflicted on me
We all got our problems
That we can beat
So i've made up my mind
And its perfectly clear
I'll believe in love whenever she's near

And we make our lives our own
When we live by the minute cause miles won't show
When you got alone to take it all
And your heart becomes a home
Cause you can't fight a feeling you've never known
And you grow up stronger when you fall

And we make our lives our own
When we live by the minute cause miles won't show
When you got alone to take it all
And your heart becomes a home
Cause you can't fight a feeling you've never known
And you grow up stronger when you fall
Track Name: For Her
When theres a feeling in your chest
That you know that you'll regret
You can't help feeling like
You were wrong
That's when i look out to the west
And i start to second guess
Who i am and where i belong
And when he laid his hands on you
I swore it couldn't be true
I've made mistakes before but
This is too far gone, so gone

I hope theres a way out
Out of this now,
And i thought you and i would never follow
Down this road now
I'll just keep my head down
And i never thought that i would feel so hollow

The times we've shared
The times i lied
The times you cared
The times you cried
Was it all for nothing or did i just run and hide
Like a scared and lonely boy
Who was lost and made a choice
And all he wants is to go home but he can't get there
Oh he's so scared

I hope theres a way out
Out of this now,
And i thought you and i would never follow
Down this road now
I'll just keep my head down
And i never thought that i would feel so hollow

Theres a man i'd like to thank
Who used his hands that day
To comfort her when i was lost and estranged
And hey man for her you might be right
Thats a different story for a different night
And you know i won't let her go without a fight
And you know i won't make the same mistake twice
Track Name: Crutches
I spent eight months in a basement
To find what i was capable of
I wrote my thoughts on paper
Discovered a new brand of love
I'll try to make the most of this
I'll try to do it right
But unfortunately there's no set path
To live this kind of life

So i'll put one foot in front of the other
And i know that i'll fall and I'll stagger
See lately i've been drinking a little to much
It's the taste of irish whiskey that i hold onto like a crutch

I pour my head out into this little black book
And i'll share some of these thoughts with you
If you promise not to look
It's made me who I'm meant to be
It was the best damn gift my father ever gave to me
And it helps me

Put one foot in front of the other
And i know that i'll fall and I'll stagger
See lately i've been thinking way too much
And i've been holding onto memories like a goddamn crutch

I'll put one foot in front of the other
And i know that i'll fall and I'll stagger
See lately I've been sleeping a little too much
And i've been holding onto my dreams like a goddamn crutch
Track Name: To The People I've Wronged
I get lost quite often
Stuck at bus stops on the other side of the city
But when i get home i'll grab a guitar I own
Because the music of the night just ain't that pretty

I'll write apology letters to the people i've hurt
And to fall asleep I'll tell myself it could have been much worse
But I'll second guess every word I write
They don't deserve the bad feelings I owe to my life

So I'm singing about the ones i've wronged tonight
And I'm sorry that it didn't turn out right

Every time I struggle with that second verse
I calculate my memories and I weigh what they're worth
I forget all of the good times, and fixate on the bad
But a thousand miles of highway just gets lonely when you're sad

So I'm singing about the ones I've wronged tonight
And I'm sorry that it didn't turn out right
And I'm sorry to the ones i've wronged tonight
And I'm sorry, tonight
Track Name: Broken Hands
These broken bones
That fill my hands
I cracked them myself
To make amends
For what I've done
There's no excuse
Subjecting you
To my self abuse
And I forgot to tell you a few things
Like I still love you and I'm sorry
I'm just kind of scared to wear that ring

Hey you
Please understand
Together we've felt emotions I thought we never had
And that heart, of solid gold
Carry it with you till your body grows too cold

Your body grows too cold
Your body grows too cold

Well in my head
I'm not all there
Cracked down the centre
Let blood flow down my hair
I hope that I
Can treat you royally
Cause when I saw you standing there
The air got harder and harder to breathe

Hey you
Please understand
Together we've felt emotions i though we never had
And that heart, of solid gold
Carry it with you till your body grows too cold
your body grows too cold
your body grows too cold

And if not

Oh well I'll heal these broken hands
Maybe one day, I'll learn what it means to be a man
Oh baby don't regret this
I know your head is full of fear
And theres a hole left in my heart
And you belong right here
