Track Name: Until Then
How many times have I stayed up and watched the hours fade away
Until the sun screamed at me what a waste?
And my head is full of things that wind me up and down these springs
While never giving me a chance to breathe

These night
I realize it could be much worse
Maybe
I'll realize I don't need this curse
Until then my bed hurts

Despite how hard I try to recreate what's called a normal life
My mind keeps scratching out the things I like
And it's rough to see what's there when you're tripping off every snare
That someone in a past life threw in your hair

These nights
I realize it could be much worse
Maybe
I'll realize I don't need this curse
Until then my bed hurts
Track Name: To My Love
You tear apart
That old alarm
Yeah it's been ringing, but you won't find any rest
You're terrified
And memorized
Each every line, ever since you left the bed

Tell me is it wrong to ever feel there's more
I'm looking out for you but can you see the shore, anymore?

Do you think this dance was made for two
Even if it's too long?
If I'm not the one you want then who are you
Who are you to my love?
Oh I can't stand left to be the last one to know

What do you see?
My grinning teeth,
A mere reflection, or a dressed up newlywed?
No I don't know
How things will go
But you can bet I'll be fighting to the end

Church bells are a-ringing, all I see are dreams
They call us down the aisle, but it's too soon for you or me

Do you think this dance was made for two
Even if it's too long?
If I'm not the one you want then who are you
Who are you to my love?
Oh I can't stand left to be the last one to know

Oh I can't stand left to be the last one to know
Track Name: The Bug
I try to pull off brave
You call me out on my bluff
And now it's way too late
You got me under your cuffs
'Cuz you've got the bug

I try to shake it off
Go back to my old ways
But like a creeping cough
You're taking over my brain
'Cuz you've got the bug

Can't ignore it, can't ignore it
'Cuz when you're here everything's clear
Can't outrun it
Don't know why I try so hard to gun it
Maybe if I slowed down you would hear
The way you make me feel

I know it's dumb, the ways I try to be proud
But when you're gone I feel the sun's gone out
So bear with me as I try break
All these foolish ways

Can't ignore it, can't ignore
'Cuz when you're here everything's clear
Can't outrun it
Don't know why I try to hard to gun it
Maybe if I slowed down you would hear
The way you make me feel
Track Name: Torches
I wanted to die with you
You wouldn't have it, wouldn't have it
I was willing to be born anew
But you were gone by then

Why do I hold on to this torch
If I know there is nothing lying there
If I run will I end up scorched
Burned away, smiling without a care
Without a care

I went searching in the dea of night
To find a lighthouse
You keep saying that this is not a fight
Well now it's my time to find out

Why do I hold on to this torch
If I know there is nothing lying there
If I run will I end up scorched
Burned away, smiling without a care
Without a care

And if this place was not a breadcrumb from you
Then I think it was worth it all the same
If the heat and the dark can make a place for two
Then I think I can make it all the same
Oh I think I can make it all the same, all the same

Why do I hold on to this torch
If I know there is nothing lying there
If I run will I end up scorched
Burned away, smiling without a care
Track Name: Every Night
Even though they say it'll be fine
It's hard to know
Which feels stay and which will go

So I hide myself with a shield
One made of tunes
Warding off the things I do

'Cuz every night, I pick a fight
And find myself against the knife
That knows just how to cut me all too well
But still I try to make it right
When everything's in black and white
'Cuz all these lights makes it hard to tell
If I'm caving in

I failed to make a decent alibi
To explain
Why I never made a name
It's because it gets way too clear
I'm just scared
Of never getting down these stairs

'Cuz every night, I pick a fight
And find myself against the knife
That knows just how to cut me all too well
But still I try to make it right
When everything's in black and white
'Cuz all these lights makes it hard to tell
If I'm caving in
If I'm caving in

I wanna feel special
When I'm with you
Why don't I feel special
What can I do to fix all these feelings
I wanna feel special
But it's no use
This mirror's not special
Won't let me choose the things that I'm seeing, oh


'Cuz every night, I pick a fight
And find myself against the knife
That knows just how to cut me all too ...
But still I try to make it right
When everything's in black and white
'Cuz all these lights makes it hard to ...

'Cuz every night, I pick a fight
And find myself against the knife
That knows just how to cut me all too ...
But still I try to make it right
When everything's in black and white
'Cuz all these lights makes it hard to tell
If I'm caving in
