-Verse- I don't know where you stand when we coincide I have feeling you have been broken In your eyes I see your absent mind They used to be shrewd I want my love untaxed Like the wind the blows through my window I haven't found that yet Who waits for the blues -Chorus- You often talk a lot about love and it's cruel On how it should be I've got opinions too And you had the nerve to mock me Man, I'm not that cruel to be the one to Insult what makes you you I'll come and go Forgive my flow I'm not that bold but that's fine -Bridge- An open mind Was that too much to have asked You're only dreaming I'll draw a line When I am dead and all gone I'm never leaving Life moves on keep up Don't lose light Forget times that passed They excite thoughts that keep you blind within plain sight -Verse II- Hard times come easy You've forgotten what you came here for Simplicity Oh not a means to an end Four hearts came And they will leave all the same It's a daunting notion It follows me and rains -Chorus II- You often talk a lot about love and it's cruel On how it should be I've got opinions too And you had the nerve to mock me Man, I'm not that cruel to be the one to Insult what makes you you At least we know the hospital won't be your home Don't need a reason To be a stupid fool I'll come and go Forgive my flow

-Verse- If you want it you can get it We've been taking the long way for far to long If you want it but you don't get it We will draw you a map so you won't get lost If you want it we can get it We've been taking the long way for far to long If you want it but you don't get it We will draw you a map so you won't get lost -Chorus- Who has a say if you lose your way It questions your faith as you try to say grace It was enough to fake I guess it was in good fun -Verse- You been talking and you sound lost You've absorbed the hearsay What you gained and what I lost I'm not sure it's a bad thing And through it all we fought out hearts We were made to self-destruct -Chorus- Who has a say if you lose your way It questions your faith as you try to say grace It was enough to fake I guess it was in good fun -End- We were seeing signs of wear and tear as we'd go I had see enough to know that you weren't whole Side roads you haven't ventured Makes you wonder Boy do I know Haven't got the time to wander off the path that guides you on home

Butter Pop 04:42
-Verse- You won't be writing bout us oh no Did think we'd be so hard to follow Run hard and it won't be long Why invest in something you won't get Oh oh oh no Your controversy Oh oh oh no The way you reason with me -Pre Chorus- This love ain't gonna dissipate Resolve any issues with yourself while you still can -Chorus- Repeat repeat the point you've made I've gone bitter and need to shave Oh butter pop won't you rescue me Will you be waiting Oh no will you return in time -Verse- My fair lady I consider you my break beat Slightly off, confusing So in tune when our bodies our bodies move Oh oh oh no Your controversy Oh oh oh no I apologize deeply -Pre Chorus- Life will never go just as planned Every minutes getting further from the life you wish you had -Chorus- Repeat repeat the point you've made I've gone bitter and need to shave Oh butter pop, won't you rescue me Will you be waiting Oh no, will you return in time -Bridge- A struggling harmony With makeshift company If you gone weary, will you still be kind Bitter and broken but you still have kept your shine With that said, I will face it -Chorus- Repeat repeat the point you've made I've gone bitter and need to shave Oh butter pop, won't you rescue me Will you be waiting Oh no, will you return in time

Bay Bees 03:35
-Verse- Planes are flying low outside the city lights Children sit by pointing lasers to the sky I've been hollowed out of old stumps before Replaced with insides that melted towards the floor The grass is growing taller than blades can trim All the Sunday people are looping the same hymns My family buries burdens that many other leak And all the while babies cry in their sheets so... -Chorus- We won't be talking it out It's not that easy Given the opportunity I'd disagree We've been waiting around for those repeats We've been holding out for these lonelier streets -Verse- These lenses cover fear and my great lack of tears I miss my mother's touch It seems like it's been years It's been getting colder almost every single summer These loud screaming cries, I can't help but stutter and -Chorus- We won't be talking it out It's not that easy Given the opportunity I'd disagree We've been waiting around for those repeats We've been holding out for these lonelier streets -Bridge- Talkin too loud, oh on the ride home Wish I had called you a cab Let's forget what you said and I'll come home We'll get over it We won't be talking it out, it's not that easy Aren't you tired of making a mends Let's forget what you said and I'll come home We'll get over it -End- We won't be talking it out It's not that easy

-Verse- You've been missing what you left behind I'm afraid you know you could reset it Don't forget you've been wasting time You have you're lonely art It's bout time you laid down And take a load off Holding on to the tears you fight You surround yourself with tools that help you write I will leave nothing to the imagination You hear me now I'll speak flat out -Chorus- Many miles you haven't walked But you knew what you knew Sincerely, would you say you were true Say what you think before it slips away you won't feel all right (Do you think like you want to) Don't think what it seems yo should think cuz it's wrong, you won't sleep at night (Do you think like your supposed to) -Verse- Who's gained a loss You've been running and I find it cruel The sensation you've been craving for Cuz what you see is what you get A man-child who won't let love live Coward -Chorus- Say what you think before it slips away you won't feel all right (Do you love like you want to) Don't think what it seems yo should think cuz it's wrong, you won't sleep at night (Do you love like your supposed to) Three times is three times too many I'm sure there's fourth My life is always in shambles Enough's enough -Bridge- You have really come down to know your niche We'll set it and forget the rest If you could only some how fix the glitch I'll begin to think you knew too much

-Verse- You were design A long way from home You journeyed back And you found something nice on the other side Of Brown Road A knock on the door what a stubborn surprise Isn't funny how live can be so Deprived of the oxygen you need at night in your bed -Chorus- You'll break the news You wandered far from home I blame myself You weren't hard to please Maybe what you want is me on my knees It's all that you want, all that you needed It's dead and gone and I found my peace It's all that you want not what you needed That understanding will guide us home -Verse- And like the clouds we will surely part The sun will shine and it brings hope Just avoid the sunburns my dear We'll pray for a day when everything’s right All the cars will crash at night So everyone can get to work on time -Chorus- I'll break the news You aren't the one You won't miss me You'll miss who you thought I was Hope you found someone you won't read wrong It's all that you want, all that you needed You made it seem like it's all the same And it's all that you want not what you needed The unexpected has become my home -End- This is something we can revisit. Your heart is dense it can't really feel what's here We're both a tad insane I can't be all to blame You have grown far from lonely You are now tried and true Live long, prosper Good times have found you It's all that we can do I know you feel that too

-Verse- You conceived a notion You were destined to ways You were soft spoken And you forget You were spoiled then This room's full and you're at your wits end Nothing comes easy anymore You'll find out that mistakes are made You'll scrimp up a 401k It'll come with age It's foreign but safe There's got to be another way -Pre Chorus- Will you be living your dreams when you're old Or with they be the reason you grow cold -Chorus- There's no point in talking about it You'll be old when you're old That's life, you can't change it It's the notion of how life should be that breaks you Don't you fret Eventually you'll have no needs By the ocean Where you'll forget The motions Apart of the day to day -Verse- I'll have a day when work is play It'll be golden Who acts their age I'll fake my way through a paycheck Until I have had enough Nothing's that easy anymore It builds up and breaks you down To the ground level So you'll refine your sound So it's aged well and dated Oh no, maybe you have grow old after all -Pre Chorus- Maybe the countryside feels more like home Oh you're dreaming You're scheming for a home -Chorus- There's no point in talking about it You be old when you’re old That's life, you can't change it It's the motions you take To get where you been longing for Longing to finally be free By the ocean Where you'll forget The notion of what life could have been There's no point in talking about it You'll be old when you're old That's life, you can't change it It's the notion of how life should be That breaks you Don't you fret Eventually you'll have no need to be up in arms
