Track Name: I'm Losing Friends
I'm losing friends and it scares me to death
Losing my voice telling myself that it's all in my head
I'm losing friends
I'm losing sleep
And I'm not sure what it means, the bags under my eyes seem to be getting darker every morning
I'm losing sleep
I see what the devil sees, I listen when the devil speaks, I think we might all be demons when we want to be
I can't afford to love
I'm afraid if I give too much you'll leave
Everyone does
I'm losing friends and it scares me to death
Losing hope and motivation
I quit holding my breath
Cause I'm losing friends
I'm losing days, and telling myself it's okay
I'm dreaming of crushed knees and what if my feet leave the pavement but I can't do it
I'm losing days
I see what the devil sees, I listen when the devil speaks, I think we might all be demons when we want to be
I can't afford to love
I'm afraid if I give too much you'll leave
Everyone does
I'm losing friends and it scares me to death
I'm losing friends and it scares me to death
I'm losing friends
Track Name: Wait
Don't waste your time on someone unwilling to love you the way you deserve
Don't bend over backwards as they walk away, when you miss them remember the hurt
And when the right one comes along don't miss your chance over someone that's already gone
Someday some lover will show you
How beautiful being loved can be
So stop looking for someone to complete you
And wait for the one that makes you feel complete
Don't waste your time on someone unwilling to take you the way that you are
Don't you dare believe that you're less than enough, don't try to hide your scars
When the right one comes along, you'll mean more than you know and they'll love you for all of your flaws
Track Name: Brother's Keeper
I've got 14 marks from the good old days
My brother's blood running through my veins
Forgive me, I wish I could've held the weight
I've got 14 sparks from that good old flame
And a stronger back, but I still have my days
Forgive me, I haven't been in a good place
I've been missing the days when I was missing home
I'm not sure what home is
I've been hoping solace finds me somewhere along the road
God knows I need it
You've got two hearts guarded at 17
And your brother's lost in a fit of rage
Forgive me, I wish I could take your pain
Spent too many days looking out for me
I'm getting better now, but I still feel the rain
Forgive me, I haven't been in a good place
Track Name: Daisies
You remind me of daisies and baby's breath, cocaine and cigarette smoke
You remind me of black marks on a pillowcase, whiskey and the pills it chased down
You created a man that couldn't want you and gave him my name
You imagined a tragedy that killed you and I took the blame
I'm afraid I might relapse
We've all got our vices that keep us crawling back
Sometimes I still miss what I wish could be
The man that you hate is a stranger to me
You remind me of accents and pillow talk, cold-shouldered, dead-eyed, “don't touch me"
You remind me of rooftops and love songs, and wasted second chances, I did no such thing
You created a man that couldn't want you and gave him my name
You imagined a tragedy that killed you and I took the blame
Track Name: Almost
I am weak now, I am found out
let my guard down again
I'm equal parts let down and ashamed I let you in
You're not a mystery, I figured out what I didn't know before
Whatever's locked behind your eyes, I don't want it anymore
“Almost" is such a heavy title to own
In the arms of someone that doesn't want you, you still feel alone.
You never felt like home
Hold your silver tongue, I bought every line you've sold so far
When January comes, I'd rather not be where you are
How quickly we fall to being strangers again
The ones close enough to touch are the most painful to miss
“Almost" is such a heavy title to own
In the arms of someone that doesn't want you, you still feel alone.
I think it's in my nature to blame myself when things go wrong
You never felt like home
Track Name: Never Meant
I'm afraid you were right, I've always been self-involved
I never meant to hurt anyone
But every word I say feels wrong
I'm afraid they were wrong, hell is not a place at all
It's realizing that I'm truly alone
At some point "I'm sorry" isn't enough
But I never meant to hurt anyone
I never meant to hurt anyone
It's getting bad again, I don't know the person I've become
I never meant to hurt anyone
Treading water with my stomach in knots
It's getting bad again, God, I'm starting to lose my head
Biting my nails to the skin
At some point, you've got to stop letting me in
I always end up hurting everyone
I never meant to hurt anyone
