Track Name: No Crying Until The End
how will I pay my rent
how will I get through the day
how can I function when I know you're out there happier than me
the ice began to melt
and slowly I began to see
the dust began to clear
and you were nowhere near

I think I'm crumbling
feels like I'm ripping open
let the bodies spill their blood as it washes me away

now you're miles away
but in a different kind of way
but maybe if I really tried for once
I could free myself
from this place
and rip out all
the tattered pages
some clarity
is what I need
nevermind my sanity
nevermind I'm feeling free
nevermind now I can't breathe
Track Name: The Other Side
take me to the other side of love
I've been outside looking in for so long
just let me be there when she comes home
just let her miss me when she's alone

take me to the other side of love
I paid my dues in love and I was wrong
the way it is is so wrong
and there's one thing that I want

take me to the other side of love
I've been outside looking in for so long
just let me be there when she comes home
just let her miss me when she's alone
Track Name: Notes
it started with the way I feel about you
I kept it all inside
I was fading and you saw it but I wouldn't let you in
the only solace was finding you alone
we could walk into the dark and then we wouldn't have to talk

you should have told me you weren't fine
I should have seen it when you lied
I should have been there every night
I should have held you when you cried

and when I took a walk outside this evening
the rain still hadn't stopped
but I liked the way the drops felt when they fell onto my skin
too sad too lonely
I'm trying to get by
but I'm slipping when I see my bed is empty every night

you should have told me you weren't fine
I should have seen it when you lied
I should have been there every night
I should have held you when you cried
Track Name: And Then I Saw You
take me home like you did when we were young
still trying to find my place
it's a process for me

today I'm feeling better
tomorrow I'm under the weather
can't keep my head up anymore
Track Name: The New Year
we're all lost inside our heads
does it matter if I say anything
cause my voice is swallowed up
by a thousand others

I guess what hurt the most
was the feeling that I got
when you were happy without me

I'll invite you up
we can talk about the summer
but don't stay too long
or I'll start to wonder
if it's true
I don't mind
it just means you were right again
