Track Name: Poor Boy
Verse 1
If I was a bird I'd swim in a lake
If I was a plane I'd fly on the highway
If I was a fish I'd fly in the trees
Oh so high no one would bother me

Chorus
Cause I'm just a poor boy and I ain't done no wrong
No I'm just a poor boy no one knows my song
I'm just a poor boy

Verse 2
If I was a snake I'd walk many miles
If I was a car I'd sail the Nile
If I was a clock I would freeze time
If I was rich, I wouldn't spend a dime
If I was king, I'd run and hide

Chorus
Cause I'm just a poor boy and I ain't done no wrong
No I'm just a poor boy no one knows my song
I'm just a poor boy
No I'm just a no I'm just a poor boy x2
I'm just a poor boy
Track Name: Going Crazy
Verse
I'm tattered and torn
I want to die and be reborn
I'm so low I'm so low
I don't feel right I don't feel right

Chorus
I'm going crazy without you
I'm going out of my mind
I'm in this house not a home
I'm in this bed of stone and I tremble at night
cause I don't want to fight with myself in my mind

Verse
I'm just walking down the street
I'm just staring at my feet with my head bowed down as I stare at the ground
I stumble in the past again
I don’t know where I’m going and I don't know where I've been

Chorus
I'm going crazy without you
I'm going out of my mind
I'm in this house not a home
I'm in this bed of stone
I cower in the corner of every minute every hour
My body is dry as I stare at the sky
I mumble the lines I used to whisper
I used to whisper while you slept so quiet

Bridge
I want to tear off my clothes
I want to burn every rose
I see you in the distance
I see you in the light
and I want to jump
I want to jump
I want to jump
I want to share my dreams again
I'm going crazy
I'm going crazy
Track Name: Euphoria
Verse
I don’t know where I’m going
All I know is I’m after you
I’ll chase you down the sands of time
I’ll climb the highest point of no return

Pre Chorus
She makes me fall to my feet
She makes me weak I cannot speak
Take me to

Chorus
Euphoria
Euphoria

Verse 2
I can’t seem to hide anything from your eyes
I’m twisted I’m turning
For you I’m burning
You strip me down to the core

Pre Chorus
She makes me fall to my feet
She makes me weak I cannot speak
Take me to

Chorus
Euphoria
Euphoria

Bridge
You’re amazing so amazing
Oh Lord the things you do
Track Name: Keep You Down
Verse
Trying to keep you down is harder than I realized
Can't take anymore I've run out of time
The harder it comes the harder it goes to keep you down

Chorus
Keep you down x 4
Just sit tight
Keep you down x4
It'll be alright
Keep you down x2

Verse
I'm not as young as I used to be
Keep running out of breath playing your hide and seek
I think I'll watch from here
watch you spin through the air
And when the sun begins to set
It's time to rest your weary head and lay you down
and lay you down

Chorus
Lay you down x4
Just sleep tight
Lay you down x4
It'll be alright
Lay you down
Lay you down

Outro
Let's slow down
let's slow down time
Let's slow down
let's slow down time
May you dream of everything
you want to be
May you dream a little dream for me
Cause keeping you down is harder is harder than I realized
Track Name: Crush Me
Verse
I’ve lost control of all my self
I’m lead by only desire
Step by step I blindly walk into your fire
With you I’m above cloud nine
I am drunk off your wine

Chorus
You have my heart in your hands
So crush me
Crush me till I’m dry
Crush me to my bones
Tell me I’m not alone and crush me

Verse
You penetrate my life
Like a knife through skin
Let me taste your waters
From your flowing fountain
Let me be your devil and you my sin

Chorus
You have my heart in your hands
So crush me
Crush me till I’m dry
Crush me to my bones
Tell me I’m not alone
And crush me
crush me
Track Name: Tomorrow Always Dies
Verse
Whispers in the back of your mind
Why hold back when it feels so right
Just hanging off the edge
Pray you don’t fall
You could lose everything but gain it all

Pre Chorus
I’m standing here
Standing so patiently
I surrender everything
Forever and eternity
Cause where you go
I will surely follow
Just let me know and I’ll be there tomorrow

Chorus
Tomorrow always dies x2

Verse
No they wouldn’t understand and sometimes neither do I
This love between is filled with riddles and rhymes
I’m so caught in this moment can care less about this torment
Less about anything at all

Pre Chorus
I’m standing here
Standing so patiently
I surrender everything
Forever and eternity
Cause where you go
I will surely follow
Just let me know and I’ll be there tomorrow

Chorus
Tomorrow always dies x2
It dies x2
Track Name: Float
Verse
I've had a bad day with my 9 to 5 grind
I want to take my worries and bury them in the ground
So light it up and pass it all around

Chorus
Cause I want to float
I want to float
I want to sail the sea on a big blue boat
Looking pretty high above the city on you
I want to float

Verse
Take my stress and carry them away
It's always the same shit it's just a different day
So pass it around pass it this way

Chorus
Cause I want to float
I want to float
I want to sail the sea on a big blue boat
I want to float
Looking pretty high above the city on you
I want to float

Verse
The day is too long and life is too quick
to worry about things that'll make you sick
so lean back and enjoy the ride
we're going for a little drive

Chorus
Cause I want to float
I want to float
I want to sail the sea on a big blue boat
I want to float
Looking pretty high above the city on you
I want to float x4
Track Name: Weak
It's so hard to find peace of mind when your wings are tied to the ground
It's sink or swim and I can't get my hands to rise
It's a brand new day but I'm stuck in my sway
Gotta break these chains and learn to fly to fly

I keep on moving but I keep on losing my grip
Am I to blame?
Cause I don't care where you are
I'm burning like a shooting star away

I'm stuck among thieves that burn for the meek
I'm focused on heaven but torn in between
I fight my battles right down to my teeth
How soon I realize that I am weak
I am weak
I'm sorry I'm weak
God I'm sorry I'm weak
Track Name: Valentine
Verse
I want to lay you down
Let's not wait don't hesitate
I can't find another way
To get you out of my head

Chorus
And there we go again wrapped in each other's skin
And there it goes again a beginning with no end

Verse
Please don't please don't stop
cause I can't take it
and I can't fake it
I'm lost so lost
lost in you

Chorus
And there we go again
Wrapped in each other's skin
And there it goes again
A beginning with no end

Bridge
Another fine valentine x2
Days coated in black
Washed away lost in a sack
How can I forgive myself?
Blinded by the wool that stood right by my side
I could never let it go
Another fine valentine x 4
Track Name: To The End
Verse
I can't count the times I've stood by your window
You were my Juliet and I was your Romeo
Standing in the rain just to hear you speak
Just to hear your voice
Oh so sweet

Chorus
If I hold you tonight promise me this'll never change
If we close our eyes maybe we can float away
It's only you and me till the end till the end

Verse
Never will I love anyone as much as you
You are my shining star up on high
My dancing little butterfly
You are my strength when I'm weak
My voice when I cannot speak

Chorus
If I hold you tonight promise me this'll never change
If we close our eyes maybe we can float away
It's only you and me till the end till the end

Bridge
No I don't want to stop
No I don't want to stop
No I can't stop you can't make me stop
I'll spin in circles until I drop
No I can't stop from loving you
From loving you
It's only you and me till the end
It's only you and me till the end
Track Name: You're The One
Verse
Let me tell you how I feel
Now that I know that you're the real deal
aw, baby you shake me
Just don't break me when I hear your footsteps
Speechless with every breath

Chorus
It's easy as 1-2-3
Like learning your A-B-C's
Oh darling let me be
What you want not what you need
What you want not what you need

Verse
Let me be the dawn to your sunrise
Like the fire in your eyes you've got me mesmerized
Take a step back let me show you where it's at
You're the one I've been looking for

Chorus
It's easy as 1-2-3
Like learning your A-B-C's
Oh darling let me be
What you want not what you need
What you want not what you need

Bridge
Well I’ve been thinking about you that’s all I seem to do
Every time I turn my head there you are
You’re my elevation my muse my revelation
My saving grace without you I lost faith

Outro
It's easy as 1-2-3
Like learning your A-B-C's
Oh darling let me be
What you want not what you need cause you’re the one
Said you’re the one
darling you’re the one
Said you’re the one that I need
Track Name: I Don't Know
Verse
I don't know where I'm going
No I don't have a clue
I walk around in circles
Got holes in my shoes

Chorus
Cause I don't know which way to go
No I wish I had some place to go

Verse
I walk around so aimlessly
I'm walking down an unknown street
I bump into a stranger
I ask where I can go rest my feet
He asked me a dollar for directions
I laughed and said you're broke just like me

Chorus
Cause I ain't got a dime
No I can't afford spare time

Bridge
Well your mama can't save you now
And your daddy can't hear you screaming so loud
Well you look to your left
You look to your right
And you don't see anything in sight
So you keep walking walking down that same old line
You keep walking walking down that same old rusty line
No cause you don't know which way to go
No you've lost your youth so confused
