Track Name: Here's Looking At You, Kid
Well I hate the way that you look at me,
Is this more than you can handle yet?
(Is this more than you can handle yet?)
Well I'm trying not to mess this up,
It's like I'm catching shattered pieces of a broken night
that seem to revolve around you.

Maybe, let's fall apart,
start a riot, place it in our hearts.
Take a step back, watch the walls
crash down around me.

Don't let me start this war
(woah oh war)

Dont let me start this war
(woah oh war)

So come on!
Let's jump this ship,
It'll make us feel alive.
Cuz I won't sit and wait,
For the day you change your mind.

I've got your sleeve still pinned to my heart,
and I'm starting to see that it's a problem.
(a problem)
These days I wanna cut my tongue out of my mouth,
cuz thoughts keep slipping out in the worst situations.

Maybe, let's fall apart,
start a riot, place it in our hearts.
Take a step back, watch the walls
crash down around me.

Don't let me start this war
Dont let me start this war
(woah oh war oh war)

So come on!
Let's jump this ship,
It'll make us feel alive.
Cuz I won't sit and wait,
For the day you change your mind.

So come on! (come on)
Take a chance,
It'll make you feel alive
It'll make you feel alive!

Maybe, let's fall apart,
start a riot, place it in our hearts.
Take a step back, watch the walls
crash down around me.

Don't let me start this war
(woah oh war)

Dont let me start this war
(woah oh war)

So come on! (come on)
Take a chance,
It'll make you feel alive
It'll make you feel alive!
Track Name: A Way With Words
Well I guess I'm not the only one who has issues with letting go
Cause I'm desperately trying to hold on to what's left of my past
My heart could run a marathon when I see your smile in old photographs
The look on your face screams that you're sad but don't worry darling
Those light eyes,
They'll never burn out

And it seems like my idea
Of what feels like home is slipping away
Out of my hands and I keep holding, I keep holding on to

Well I could tell you weren't satisfied, cause I'm a fucking screw up
So here's the mess of words I've piled into a song for you
And could you tell that I'm trying?
It's just my way with words is completely obsolete
And I've been thinking about letting go

And it seems like my idea
Of what feels like home is slipping away
Out of my hands and I keep holding, I keep holding on to
Track Name: I Swear This Is The Last Time
I don't see any other way
for you to get out of this mess and
this town is a loaded gun
with its sights on you
and you can't get out of here

Take this anyway you want to
but don't expect me to be there when you crash and burn
I've got a closet full of demons
and you're just another waiting to break free

This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye
it's the first time I get on with my life

I don't see any other way
for you to get out of this mess and
this town is a loaded gun
with its sights on you
and you can't get out of here

I knew who I was this morning
but that's changed so many times since then
These are the nights we will remember
and I'll hold onto that till the day I die

This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye
it's the first time I get on with my life, fuck!

I don't see any other way
for you to get out of this mess and
this town is a loaded gun
with its sights on you
and you can't get out of here

I don't see any other way
for you to get out of this mess and
this town is a loaded gun
with its sights on you
and you can't get out of here

This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye
it's the first time I get on with my

This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye
it's the first time I get on with my

This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye
it's the first time I get on with my life
Track Name: Our Calling
I have
fond memories of
climbing schools at night
to get high
back when
we were kids at the start
ok maybe not quite
but we were kids at heart

and we always knew

there would be
a place where we
could make this feeling last
and last
not stuck in
your 9 to 5 routine
another cog in the machine

yeah we always knew


This is our calling in life
this is what we dreamt about at night
when we were just kids
with stars in our eyes.
Now we're all grown up
we get by but it's not enough
and we never lost our stars


It's be come clear
the difference
between there and here

we're not wasting
anymore time
on girls that never loved us,
or a family that'll never trust us,
time to leave it all behind


This is our calling in life
this is what we dreamt about at night
when we were just kids
with stars in our eyes.
Now we're all grown up
we get by but it's not enough
and we never lost our stars


We all feel a little fucked up sometimes
we just need a reason
to feel alright

We all feel a little fucked up sometimes
we just need a reason
to feel alright
maybe you could be mine

This is our calling in life
this is what we dreamt about at night
when we were just kids
with stars in our eyes.
Now we're all grown up
we get by but it's not enough
and we never lost our stars

(Now we're all grown up
we get by but it's not enough
and we never lost our stars)
