Track Name: Debts
I don't know what you've been told
But summers come and summers go
And all I have left to show
Are these debts from loving you

Surely I've paid the price
Waited up wasted nights
Scouring these city lights
Trying to find you

Maybe I'm the one to blame
For falling fast changing lanes
Thinking I could find my way
To happiness alone

I think it's time I leave this place
This town's too small and I've changed
The boy I was he can stay
But I must move on
Track Name: Enough
Some times life gets hard pretending
I'm more than I've been
Spent my youth growing weary
Of all the things I couldn't fix
You said you'd love me in the morning
I guess you didn't mean it

For all the things I took for granted
You were still my only one
For all the times i never said it
You were more than enough

Looking back on all we've been through
Maybe it's just my mistake
I could've swore you once loved me
I guess somewhere it all just changed


For all the things I took for granted
You were still my only one
For all the times i never said it
You were more than enough
Track Name: Driving Blind
You know the road ain't too kind
And we're all just driving blind
But I hope you'll hold my hand

Cause when nothing's what it seems
You know you're all I need
You help me stand when I'm too weak

I'm not asking for forever
Just tomorrow for as long as you can
No I'm not asking for forever
Just tomorrow for as long as you can

I'm not asking for forever
Just tomorrow for as long as you can
No I'm not asking for forever
Just tomorrow for as long as you can
Track Name: 88
I don't care where the road goes
Just as long as you're home
I'd drive all night just to make it there
Before morning's first light

We'll say I do on a fall day
Just you and me in a field where you once played
Your mom will cry but she'll be alright
Knowing sure enough you're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright

I can't promise you the world
But I can swear you'll be my girl
And all the trouble on our mind
Will leave our weary hearts behind

I can't promise you the world
But I can swear you'll be my girl
And all the trouble on our mind
Will leave our weary hearts behind
Track Name: Cautionary Tale
I'll lie to myself as I'm lying in bed
This is as good as it's ever gonna get
And I'll tell my children this cautionary tale
In the hopes that they'll find themselves out there

See time's just a weight that's holding you down
And money's fake it won't save you somehow
And to those that might say I'm an old fool
Just ask yourself can you take it with you when you're gone

If you're gonna live in this world there's some things you should know
Love's all you need to keep yourself whole
And all the temporary vices you'll find
Will break you down if you give them your time

So live for yourself
But help when you can
This life's too short for dissatisfaction

I'll lie to myself as I'm lying in bed
This is as good as it's ever gonna get
Track Name: The Great Divide
When time's got the best of us
Will you still see what you saw
Would your heart still ache
When you hear my name
Or would you just walk away
Leave again forever changed

See somewhere between the great divide
We lost our way home

Tell me love do you agree
Nothing in this world is what it seems
We're only here for just a blink
A simple line in a masterpiece
In the end we're never heard
Only quietly observed

See somewhere between the great divide
We lost our way home
Track Name: Loose Change (explicit)
I guess I should've noticed
You never really cared
You could say you were lost
But I was always there

You like to say I fucked up
I guess I'm easy to blame
But who was there to hold you
When you're friends all turned away

See money's just an old drug
It got it's hands on you
I would've swore you were something
But look what it put you through
You traded in your good friends
For heart ache just to prove
You were the right one
And I was just bad news

I never wanted the trouble
I never even fought
But you just play the victim
It's the only card you've got

When time runs out
And you're on your own
Please don't call me
You're better off alone

See money's just an old drug
It got it's hands on you
I would've swore you were something
But look what it put you through
You traded in your good friends
For heart ache just to prove
You were the right one
And I was just bad news
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
We're too young too settle down
But far too old not to be grown by now
I thought I saw forever in your eyes
You just didn't see it in mine

The nights are always coldest alone
This big ol house just ain't no home
What use to be a haven's now a cave
Reminding me of a life I've come to hate

We're too young too settle down
But far too old not to be grown by now
Those were the last words you said
I only wish I could get them out of my head

I just want to wake up in our bed
Live the life I was leading
Know this all was just a dream
Know you didn't really leave

We're too young too settle down
But far too old not to be grown by now
I thought I saw forever in your eyes
You just didn't see it in mine
Track Name: Lovesick Lullaby
Just call me a lover who didn't give enough
Or call me a child who's still stuck in love
I know we both said some things I'm sure we didn't mean
But in the big scheme of things
Maybe it's for the best we parted ways
Cut the string erased the slate darling

I told you once I loved you
But it meant more to me than it did to you
And I know we were just kids
But it's as true today as it was back then
I love you

I wasn't trying to break your heart
I just wanted to mend my own
