Track Name: Not Like I
The light it starts to fade
as i walk away, i walk away.
The curtain hits the stage
and my heart is racing, its racing.
Im breaking mirrors just for fun
to see the abstract reflection.
Its all a game I used to play.

(Chorus)

Its not like i'm happy with who i've become
i'm wasting time (Im wasting time)
Its not like i wanna be like this forever
be like this forever.

Be like this forever (x2)

My patience is wearing thin its growing harder
to find myself within.
The tide is changing and its pulling me under
and i can't hold my breath for much longer.


(Chorus)

Its not like i'm happy with who i've become i'm wasting time (Im wasting time)
Its not like i wanna be like this forever, be like this forever.

Be like this forever (Forever Forever Forever)


Just shut the door and turn the lights out.
And fall asleep to dream you make them so proud.
Your never gonna live up to their expectations.
Expectations.
Its not like i'm happy with who i've become, i'm wasting time.

(Chorus)

Its not like i wanna be like this forever, be like this forever.
Its not like i'm happy with who i've become i'm wasting time (Im wasting time)
Its not like i wanna be like this forever, be like this forever.

Be like this forever (x2)
Track Name: Hopeless Romantic
And maybe you'll say that you could be my only.
Just kiss me like its the end of the night
and we'll watch the sunrise.

Summer is over
it got colder to soon.
I feel so much older
i don't like it, do you?
And the taste is ever so sweet
when you smiling at me
your driving me crazy.
So close but oh so far away.
Does she even notice me?
Does she notice me?

(Chorus)

And maybe you'll say that you could be my only.
Just kiss me like its the end of the night
and watch the sunrise.

Wonder if its way to soon
if she would be reciprocal
to my gestures.
So hopelessly romantic
or am i just hopeless?
I just start to panic when i touch her lips.

(Chorus x2)

And maybe you'll say that you could be my only.
Just kiss me like its the end of the night
and watch the sunrise.

Damn your just so beautiful, oh.
Its hard to look away from you, oh.
Say you feel it like i do, oh.
I can't stand the though of being away from you.
Track Name: Last Train Home
And they say to keep your chin up
It helps to keep your mouth shut.
Listening to her express she wants to fall in love.

Summers never been so cold
Now i'm all alone
Wondering where you are and what yo've done tonight
I wanna feel your lips on mine
Baby i'm dying to try to imagine what its like to feel alive

(Chorus)

If you could say anything
I'll keep it a secret you'll see.
If you could say anything
I'll keep it a secret you'll see.

And when our skins collide
it lights a fire inside
And history has never seemed to burn so bright
And its all right and its all cool and its ok
To be the one who everybody's jealous of baby.

(Chorus)

If you could say anything
I'll keep it a secret you'll see.
If you could say anything
I'll keep it a secret you'll see.

Were going past the world in a flash of light.
(If you could say anything I'll keep it a secret you'll see)
(Lets go out and set the world on fire)

Tonight i swear we'll run away and catch the last train home.
Track Name: Mariana
Tell me something crazy just maybe
you could hear the words i'm not saying.
I could be yours just for tonight
If you try i wont mind.
I'm insecure of everything that falls out of my mouth
so i keep it in close like the liesi try to hide
to impress you
impress you.

(Chorus)

Cause its in the way she moves
i'm addicted to.
Its in the way her eyes can shine like the moon.

Nothing at all feels wrong
It just feels right.
Ill hold her closely
ever so tight.
She whispered softly in my ear
everything that i want to hear.
Her skin is gently touching mine
I'll hold her close till the end of time.

(Chorus)

Cause its in the way she moves
i'm addicted to.
Its in the way her eyes can shine like the moon.

She shines like the moon.
She shines just like the moon.
She shines just like the moon.
She shines just like the moon.

(Chorus)

Cause its in the way she moves
i'm addicted to.
Its in the way her eyes can shine like the moon.
Track Name: Mother
Like morphine your burning through my veins
I've grown sick from all your pain.
I'm older now and i'm dying from inside
I'm tired of all your lies
poisoning my mind.
So do you want me to go somewhere far away
ill be back, never..
and you'll be there missing me.
Its not like you cared about me ever.
Holidays are so much colder
when you are in hell.

(Chorus)

Mother..
did you think that i don't care?
Mother..
did you think in was never there?
You hate me for everything that i've become.
You hate me and pretend that i'm not your son.

Im not your son
Im not your son
Im not your son

At the bottom of a bottle we will always find you there.
Can't stop complaining how your life was just not fair.
She paints her face to make it seem like everything's ok.
Inebriated lullaby to put yourself to sleep.

(Chorus)

Mother..
did you think that i don't care?
Mother..
did you think in was never there?
You hate me for everything that i've become.
You hate me and pretend that i'm not your son.

(x4)

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Im not your son
Track Name: Baby Don't Go
Hold me close
like a firefly
eventually ill light up your life
only for a little while.
As fragile as a broken glass
were living young
and were dying fast.
Im falling faster
than a shooting star.

(Chorus)

She said baby don't go crazy
I promise its gonna be ok.
She whispered in my ear that someday
you could marry me, you could mary me.
Won't you?

They say you fake it until you make it right
in someone else's eyes.
Arose by any other name
would be just as sweet as
the disappointment you create.

(Chorus)

She said baby don't go crazy
I promise its gonna be ok.
She whispered in my ear that someday
you could marry me, you could mary me.
Won't you?

I'm falling faster than a shooting star.
I'm falling so fast.
Does it break your heart?
Im falling faster than a shooting star.
(Than a shooting star)
She said baby dont go..

(Chorus)

She said baby don't go crazy
I promise its gonna be ok.
She whispered in my ear that someday
you could marry me, you could mary me.
Won't you?

You could marry me you could marry me..
you could marry me you could marry me..
