Track Name: This Is Not A Game
you asked can you be a part of it I'm trying to believe in anything you asked can you be a part of it I'm trying to believe in anything and from the grace of God this is where this is coming from and I hope I hope you realize that this is not a game I've been shot down by the hands that held me up and I need to trust but trust is failing me so you ask can you be a part of it I'm trying to believe in anything so I ask can you believe in me when I'm failing miserably when I'm trying trying to be something you asked can you be a part of it I'm trying to believe in anything this time there isn't any going back I've figured out I can't change the past but I'd still take your hand over any other one cause I know that we both feel the love past everything you've fallen gracefully I have fallen miserably for you for you I've fallen miserably for you but you stood there so blank faced you turned your back and walked away without saying a word you turned your back and walked away have we become to much for you to bare have we come too far to stop this here have we become to much for you to bare right here I sat down with my letdowns an equal field but still I'm falling out I sat down with my letdowns I sat down with my letdowns
Track Name: Oceans
you dreamed of oceans and a family to take there I had a dream about something on the other side dreams are make believe but we'll believe them in to a real thing you can see the sea but that's not me that's not me let's add a twist and blur our images let's dream a life that lead together for you and me are you ready you dreamed of oceans and I'd give all to you but if the moon pulled back the water to dry land what would you do would you stay with me or would you dream another dream look into my eyes before you slip too far from real life hold my hand and see you've got me you've got me you hold to hope that makes a young heart feel alive but I'd steal your hopes and dreams if it would keep you from losing sight I left my heart at the bedside table so you could see everything so clear when you wake up you're able to see you've got me you've got me that dreams are dreams and you're dying there come back to me come back to me open your eyes to see you're drowning you're drowning
Track Name: The Effort
it was 3 pm when I stepped off the plane to where I thought I should be picking up where we left off never thinking anything it's been 6 years since I last saw your face we dove right in it only took it only took a week the sound of the door was so dark but so beautiful I was ready to drive 2000 miles to start a new life I could have been the man for you but you got me thinking twice communication has always been my downfall but maybe you maybe you just forgot I called the sound of the door was so dark but so beautiful so I jumped in my car and drove all night to nowhere and you didn't care I guess Abilene wasn't where I'm supposed to be and you don't care but I held on I was waiting for the phone to ring to tell me to tell me to meet you there but you closed the door the sound was so dark but so beautiful it opened up my eyes to find a love that will always be there remember the time by the fountain I kissed you I loved you remember your parents house on the floor when we didn't care remember the late nights the phone calls the long drives I remember it like yesterday and I'm so damn glad I'm not there
Track Name: Breathe It In
I've always dreamed of traveling seeing the world and aging my skin I feel I've become content I have a home a job a love and that's what I've learned is right but a part of me will never be satisfied until I cross the lines that divide our time fast cars fast highways are all I see as my dreams are hanging over me I want to see the east coast I want to breathe it in I want to breathe it in I want to breathe it in I want to miss my home I want to miss my life I want to get lost and find myself in new lights until then I'll never be satisfied and I'm forced to make a choice to stay or go or sleep and dream away my time stay or go or sleep and dream away my time fast cars fast highways are all I see as my dreams are hanging over me I want to see the east coast I want to breathe it in I want to breathe it in I want to breathe it in
Track Name: Until Then
Ive always been a disappointment to everyone I know but let me tell you something this is only how I felt so far down I feel so shallow now my father told me years back when I was young respect yourself and everyone a lesson learned too late to make a start to make a change as I lose all myself at once this time around I don't know how I'll make it out I'm so far down you saw me fall and threw a rope to stop my heart from crashing down I'm here alone with all your help these sirens are showing me maybe I've been too hard on myself past all the fuck-ups that I have made since I was 21 years old like when I stepped into the street to end my life the honest words you spoke when you said son I love you more than you will ever know
