Track Name: blossom
turn your head, 'cause this could get ugly
didn't want you to see me like this
not like this

i'm losing again to this war in my head
i can't get fucked up so i'll just sleep instead

i know i've kept you waiting for the better me to wake up
but what if that's not enough?

nothing feels safe and i'm sick of this vacant space in my bed
i can't get fucked up so i'll just sleep instead


there's comfort in speaking your mind with no repercussions
the weight of the world took a break from resting on my chest
and dissolved into the air instead
you stood there and smiled
and i smiled back

the trees and the leaves were beautiful
even through the mud that caked our shoes
but at that moment, i didn't realize how beautiful you would become to me

and all i could wonder is if you felt like i did
and i was so afraid, that i kept to myself
Track Name: beauty blur
scared away, should i backtrack
driving in my car, thinking about where we were a week back

so do you feel weak when you see me
the kind where you don't want me to leave
or you're just wishing that i'd go away

i've realized i just don't like feeling a thing
do you feel me

i guess i'm enemies with love and best friends with the pain

i guess i'm enemies with love and best friends with the pain
do you feel me

i think about the smaller pieces
like the way you look me in the eyes
but i never expect a bigger picture
it's only a matter of time

before you're sick of me
want to cut me off, get back to the way things used to be
i'm so sorry that i made you believe in this

just another disappointment without proper resolution
i gave my heart away, in hopes that you would stay

i've realized i just don't like feeling a thing
do you feel me

i guess i'm enemies with love and best friends with the pain

i guess i'm enemies with love and best friends with the pain
do you feel me

i'm so sick of getting hurt
i've tried to fix myself but nothing works
i don't think i'm meant for anyone
just another stupid boy with a wish to be loved

i guess i'm enemies with love and best friends with the pain
do you feel me

scared away, should i backtrack
driving in my car, thinking about where we were a week back
Track Name: everything is changing
the days are getting shorter
it starts to hurt a little
i'm only getting older
i miss more and more from when i was a kid

and don't you remember
when life was easier than this
now it seems so backwards
where we don't forgive and we would rather forget

i think i need a break

you're inside my head
i'm searching for some comfort

i just want to feel important
like i'm something that you want to last
i am so afraid to trust
but i can never stop myself, when i open up too much

i'll just open up this door and hope that something's on the other side
i wish i didn't have these feelings that are just too hard to hide
when is enough, enough

well i can't fast forward and i'm bending backwards for you
and i'm terrified of what else you could possibly do
i'm just a guy who sees happier people than me
wondering when i'll get my chance to finally breathe

i think i need a break

you're inside my head
i'm searching for some comfort

comfort
Track Name: nothing that you need
should i stay around for you
well, i don't know if i'll be around for long
as soon as things start getting good
i'm reminded why i never get any better

as soon as it starts getting warm
i'm reminded why i can't rely on the weather

life is so beautifully misguided by my dreams
growing up is nothing like you made it out to be

i'm nothing that you need
everyone would rather leave
so please forgive me

should i stay around for you
well, i don't know if i'll be around for long
as soon as things start getting good
i'm reminded why i never get any better
Track Name: the feelings you want to replace
it's getting colder
i was wondering if you'd like my jacket
i don't think i need it when i'm with you

you make me feel warm
you keep the fire inside of me burning
so i can never be cold

i can see my breath
but i don't want to go inside
if that means that i have to leave you

i know i need rest
but i don't want to go to sleep
if that means that i can't see you

when the world gets ugly
i will shield your eyes
if you're ever in pain
i'll stay by your side
'cause i know what it's like to be alone

just a little longer
i've been pondering if i should bury this hatchet
i don't think there's much left for me to lose

it's just another storm
where the rain makes my vision a bit blurry
it'll be okay, i know

cause and effect
there's no excuse to run and hide
if that means that you'll never hear the truth

i can't just forget
so please don't tell another lie
since that means that you've never cared about what i've been through

when the world gets ugly
i will shield your eyes
if you're ever in pain
i'll stay by your side
'cause i know what it's like to be alone

it's getting colder
i was wondering if you'd like my jacket
i don't think i need it at all

just a little longer
i've been pondering if i should bury this hatchet
will you pick me up if i fall

when the world gets ugly
i will shield your eyes
if you're ever in pain
i'll stay by your side
'cause i know what it's like to be alone

it's getting colder
i was wondering if you'd like my jacket
'cause i know what it's like to be alone

just a little longer
i've been pondering if i should bury this hatchet
'cause i know what it's like to be alone
Track Name: better half
i don't want to love anymore
and i don't want to hurt at all
it's not safe when i open up
why didn't you just say
"you are wasting your time by showing me who you are"

tell my head to shut up
before it makes me think that things will turn out the way i imagined

i'll never be the better half

i understand if you don't want to stay
i'll never be the better half

tell me what you're going through and i promise i'll try to help
ask me how i'm doing and i'll say that i am doing well
i'm lying
no matter what, it's always you before me
no matter what, it's always stay before leave

take advantage, i don't care
at least i won't be lonely
but i guess when it comes down to it
i just want someone to want me
instead of haunting me

but i'll continue to believe
i'll never be the better half

i understand if you don't want to stay
i'll never be the better half

i don't want to love anymore
and i don't want to hurt at all
it's not safe when i open up
why didn't you just say
"you are wasting your time by showing me who you are"

tell my head to shut up
before it makes me think that things will turn out the way i imagined
i'll never be the better half
Track Name: can you catch me?
am i in reach, can you catch me
a million miles away, but can you hear me
it always seems to be the way it goes
things are going well and then you're all alone again

i'm catching all the waves
i won't let them take me just yet
i'll keep fighting in the sea
until i can no longer breathe

am i in reach, can you catch me
a million miles away, but can you hear me

something i wanna know, something i gotta know
what have i been doing wrong
is it the way i talk or is it the way that i care too much and self-destruct

whenever i think of death, your face runs through my head
instead of eternal rest, i'd rather be with you instead

i'm catching all the waves
i won't let them take me just yet
i'll keep fighting in the sea
until i can no longer breathe

am i in reach, can you catch me
a million miles away, but can you hear me
Track Name: and i wonder if you feel like i do
well hello sadness, why did you come back again
was doing okay until you showed your face again

you all try to make small talk when i'm upset
and i don't budge a bit
but i can't help it
i wish i could help myself, but i can't

hollow and empty, sometimes i can't feel a god damn thing
wallow and worry, what will the happen day that i can't sing
what will i have left

and i wonder if you feel like i do
and i wonder if it's real to have no pain
to be okay

well hello sickness, you never leave me alone
your unwelcomed company is all i've known

what's it like to be alive without battling your head
because i barely win
but i can't help it
i wish i could help myself, but i can't

hollow and empty, sometimes i can't feel a god damn thing
wallow and worry, what will the happen day that i can't sing
what will i have left

and i wonder if you feel like i do
and i wonder if it's real to have no pain
to be okay
