Track Name: The Contender
You say I play the victim
I say I didn’t have an option
And I hear your running around town
With my best friend
You said that you were drunk
It was all his fault
And I believed what you said
But how can you expect me to ever trust anyone again

And every day I contemplate
If I dodged a bullet
Or if you’re the one who got away

Now Im moving forward
And you just moved on
It didn’t take you long to run into his arms
You’re so dependent
Its so pathetic
So why do I care at all

And this apartment is colder than before
And Ive been burning bridges to the ground
Just trying to stay warm

But I’m dead
DEAD
On the inside
Im barely breathing
Hardly alive
When you said
YOU SAID

This won't work out
We need to grow apart
It’s just to hard to stay friends
I couldn't believe what you said
But I know what you meant and its true

Sometimes I still feel like I know you
Like nothing has changed
Sometimes I still picture us laughing
Even though youre not in the frame

And I know
It wasn’t perfect
I tried so hard to make it
MAKE THIS WORK
But in the end somethings just fall apart

When will I be the one worth fighting for

Now Im moving forward
And you just moved on
It didn’t take you long to run into his arms
You’re so dependent
Its so pathetic
So why do I care at all
Track Name: The Third Side
I’ve been thinking about the East Coast
And I’ve been losing sleep
There was a time when you meant so much more
So much more to me
But now I hear from everyone
The shit you talk now that we’re done
It seems you got a lot to say
But its over now and your words they don’t mean anything

But you forgot
There are two sides to every story
Ill believe mine
And you believe yours
That’s why we don’t talk anymore

I don’t have the strength
To pull these knives out of my back
My hands can’t reach the handles
The blades are stuck in their targets
And I’ve been knocked down for so so long
The footprints on the back of my shirt
Are just reminders you moved on

But you forgot
There are two sides to every story
Ill believe mine
You believe yours
That’s why we don’t talk anymore

I admit my mistakes
But I can’t blame myself for everything
When everyone knows the truth

And were off and on again
Is this real or just pretend
Was this all part of your plan
Cause I never stood a chance

But you forgot
JUST ONE LITTLE THING


But you forgot
There are two sides to every story
Ill believe mine
You believe yours
That’s why we don’t talk anymore

I cant pretend
Youre not with him
Tonight in his bed
And that’s why we don’t talk anymore
Track Name: I Feel Like I'm Taking Crazy Pills
I'm tired of picking myself up
Every time I get knocked down
I can't keep falling to pieces
Every time I see you around

And all of your new friends
Are twenty five and bartend
And Alex says
That it's no coincidence

My heart needs some rest
I've spent too many nights awake and days in bed
And I'm dying to know if I'll ever get better
Cause I confess I just want to forget her

I never thought
I would lose my best friend
But you know together
We're poison

And the holidays are the worst for me
I wish I could hear your voice
On Christmas or my birthday

And I keep dwelling on shit I can't control
It's not helping at all
To think you're happier alone
Or with him

My heart needs some rest
I've spent to many nights awake and days in bed
And I'm dying to know if I'll ever get better
Cause I confess I'm still in love with her

I never thought
I would lose my best friend
But you know together
We're poison

She said this won't work out
We need to grow apart
It's just too hard to stay friends
And I can't believe this is the end

Maybe one day I'll understand
Girls like you are a dime a dozen
Track Name: Rebuild
We haven't talked in months
I'm debating if I should pick the phone up
But whats really left to say
If you're not listening

And every night I pray for rain
To wash these memories away
The love is gone but not the pain
I have to remind myself

I played house
I burnt out
Watched what we built all fall to the ground
I'm standing on my own
And its gonna take some time

I relate so well
To concrete and these books on my shelf
Buried and judged, with no reason
To ever open up again

I can't fake a smile when I feel dead
With no heartbeat, A skeleton
A ghost of a just a broken man
I have to remind myself

I played house
I burnt out
Watched what we built all fall to the ground
I'm standing on my own
And its gonna take some time

To rebuild this mess
Underneath this chest
This muscles torn, a strain at best
Yeah
At least I'm being honest with myself

I have to remind myself

That you're just a kid
With no idea what love is
I'm sorry but I'm being honest
I admit I was wrong and selfish
But you won't own up to your mistakes

You won't own up to your mistakes
Track Name: Excelsior Feat. Kyle Christensen
I haven’t seen you in a while
But I’ve heard a lot of things
I guess we both have changed

If somehow
I calm down
And maybe you grow up
Would it be to late to save our love


Well I’ve spent this time apart
Bettering myself
And you’re still at your parent’s house
High off drugs and someone else yeah

You call that moving forward
I’ve left the past where it belongs
And with each step I take
It’s still a struggle to move on

So save your apologies
Cause I’m not listening
And they’re not worth a thing to me

Your excuses are excused
For once tell me the truth
I can handle it I promise
And I’m still broken but at least I’m honest

And the last words that you said to me
Will never leave my head completely
(I love you)
They broke me down but I figured out
How to stop feeling sorry for myself

And it took a year to get over this shit
I learned you can’t depend on someone else for your own happiness

But I’ll always remember
Spending summers at the beach
The subway stops like Kings Cross
Holding hands during take offs
The things Ill miss the most

So save (so save) your apologies
Cause I’m not listening
And they’re not worth a thing to me

So save your apologies
Cause I’m not listening
( I can handle this I promise)
And they’re not worth a thing to me

Your excuses are excused
For once tell me the truth
For once tell me the truth
I can handle it I promise
And I’m still broken but at least I’m honest

This horse is already dead
I’ll beat myself up instead
You said, “If we go down…”
But you’re not around

There’s no use trying to pretend
That we will work out in the end
I’m just a man made out of tin
I’m just a man made out of tin

This horse is already dead
I’ll beat myself up instead
You said, “If we go down…”
Im going down swinging

This horse is already dead
I’ll beat myself up instead
You said, “If we go down…”
But you’re not around

There’s no use trying to pretend
That we will work out in the end
I’m just a man made out of tin
IM JUST A MAN MADE OUT OF TIN
Track Name: Stitches
I’ve spent the last few nights awake
Quite literally
Lost on this road
Cause without you I can’t seem to find home

These nightmares have a hold on me
The fact that you're leaving and Im still screaming
Waking up in a cold sweat


I can’t accept that you’re not coming back
I know that you tried your best to bury what you couldn’t forget
So pull out the stiches if they’re uncomfortable
Cause I know how it feels to be completely lost in love

I’ve lost sight of my north star
You’re no longer on my charts
I’m drifting aimlessly
Out to sea
But I’m still kicking

Cause I know one day
Someone will find me
Even if right now
Its impossible to see

I can’t accept that you’re not coming back
I know that you tried your best to bury what you couldn’t forget
So pull out the stiches if they’re uncomfortable
I know how it feels to be completely lost in love

It feels like I'm lost in hell

How long
Does it take to move on
And for my hands to stop shaking?

When will I stop breaking down?

This is goodbye
This is me saying I’m sorry
And fuck you at the same time

For the last time

I am the rain and you are the sun
And it’s pouring down
Watch me fall

Watch me fall

I am the rain and you are the sun and its pouring down
Track Name: Birds Of A Feather
This is the last sad song I’ll ever write
These are the words racing through my head before I go to bed at night
But now I have paper
Now I can structure
And take my time
Erase the words that seem absurd
And focus on the punch lines

Cause we’ve been hitting below the belt
I'm wishing that I could just tap out
And I wish I could forget
Instead I have to accept

That you wont miss me at all
And our first kiss
The promises don’t mean anything and you’ll

Turn the other cheek
So you can forget about me
Im glad you found someone who makes you happy
And all this time I’ve spent alone
Watching you love birds with this stone

So go on go on I see you’re hanging on his arm
But I know that’s not where your heart belongs
Are you sleeping in his bed
Using his chest as a pillow for your head
I'd expect nothing less
I thought I was through the worst of it

We’ve been back and forth so long
I think its time that I move on
And I wish I could forget
Instead I have to accept

That you wont miss me at all
And our first kiss
The promises don’t mean anything and you’ll

Turn the other cheek
So you can forget about me
Im glad you found someone who makes you happy
And all this time I’ve spent alone
Watching you love birds with this stone

Maybe one day
The tides will change
And bring you back to me
Or is that just wishful thinking

And you wont miss me AT ALL
Track Name: It Never Rains In San Diego
Our break up was like broken bones
Your x-rays show you'll need crutches
And I won't know their names
But that doesn't matter anyway

Cause my hearts been torn out
To know I've been replaced
And every time I see you now

You have this
Smile on your face
I've never seen before
It seems like I've been holding you back
When I should be letting go

It never rains in San Diego
But when it does it pours on me
And we'll float away
Like clouds after the rain
I'd do anything to get you back to me

And our relationship was like the movies
I thought it was like The Notebook
Cause even though we fought all the time
I knew our love would never die

But I guess you thought more
500 Days Of Summer
So quick to forget me
Thinking you found someone better in the bar scene

I'll be waiting on my boat
Watching the ducks migrate alone

It never rains in San Diego
But when it does it pours on me
And we'll float away
Like clouds after the rain
I'd do anything to get you back to me

Allen: [drunk] I don't ask that much do I ? I don't ask to be famous, I don't ask to be rich and I don't ask to play center field for the New York Yankees or anything. I just want to meet a woman, I want to meet a woman and I want to fall in love. And I want to get married and I want to have a kid, and I want to go see him play a tooth in the school play! Its not much. But I'm kidding myself this is never going to happen. Im going to grow old and Im going to grow lonely and I'm going to die"

The seasons never change in San Diego
Im not flying away this fall

I'm not getting any sleep
I'm not getting any better
I'm not getting out of bed
I'll just blame it on the weather

Cause the seasons never change in San Diego
