Track Name: Come Back Home
I know that I'm losing track
You've been trying to get it back
Polaroids and paperbacks
No closet space, just facing facts
I want to start a life with her
I want to build our furniture
Can you get me out of here?
Will you give me one more year?

Tell me that we're alright

I don't think about it that much at all
Because when I've doubted I feel the cold
You don't think about it that much at all
Because when you've doubted
It's like you've lost it all

Worried that I'll never calm
Pinning blankets on the walls
Never meant to abuse trust
I just feel I'm hard to love
Didn't get much sleep last night
Tried your hardest not to cry
Open doors & silhouettes are waiting for me

Tell me that we're alright

I hope I can live up to it
I swear I can live up to it

I don't think about it that much at all
Because when I've doubted I feel the cold
You don't think about it that much at all
Because when you've doubted
It's like you've lost it all
Track Name: Break or Bury
Empty House, front room
Free time was brand new
That's how I wish I remembered you

Here we are
It's been eight years

If yesterday has passed away
Then we're both to blame but not equally
I tried my best to forget it
I couldn't change your ways
I guess it never was my place

We got in the habit
Of throwing the towel in

If yesterday has passed away
Then we're both to blame
But not equally
I tried my best to forget it
I couldn't change your ways
I guess it never was my place

Here we are again
It's been eight years since the start
Now I barely call you a friend or an acquaintance
Track Name: Stay the Same
I don't recognize your face when I see you
I know that people change
Not expected from you
But I'll probably change too
I swear I can change if I have to

Yeah I can change if I have to
Don't ask me to change I don't have to

When you speak to me your words feel so strained
I'll never write the words that I know you could say
I guess that's okay
I swear I can change if I have to

Yeah I can change if I have to
Don't ask me to change I don't have to
Track Name: Maple Drive
It's hard to tell
Did you ever really see me?
It's not hard to sell
All you needed was my company
To fill the void
Did you leave that there for me?
Spending all my money
On records and novelties

You don't owe anything
I don't want sympathy
It'd be nice to feel missed
By now you would think I'd be over it

Truth here's an issue
And this could use a commute
I could pretend too
It's not you, not about you
Have I been steady on your mind?
I know it when you're busy like my head

I don't want sympathy, you don't owe anything
I just wish you'd swing by and pick up your things
It'd be nice to feel missed even a little bit
By now you would think I'd be over it

I hope you find your rest
I need you to find the rest
I hope you find your rest
I'll help you
All you need is rest

You don't owe anything
I don't want sympathy
It'd be nice to feel missed
By now you would think I'd be over it
Track Name: Best Friends Forget
I wish you would leave the state
So I could pretend that we don't talk
Because you moved away
When you won't answer my calls
I'll leave it at being late
Somewhere deep down, man I know
I know that I'm to blame

Pretend you're still living down the street
Still walking around like we own them all
Forget all the things, I sounded so angry
Laughing autumn nights and the quiet things

Parking lot
Car was being towed
Sleeping cold on bedroom floors
And empty theater rows
Captives gone
Now yesterday's for dead
Banisters and bloody palms
Holes in plaster walls

Asleep in the passenger seat
Well at least we're starting to speak
When you woke up nothing had changed
Well at least we can call it by name


Pretend you're still living down the street
Still walking around like we own them all
Forget all the things, I sounded so angry
Laughing autumn nights and the quiet things
