Track Name: To Be Alone
She said I don't like to be alone
And I replied
Don't worry, you'll be alright
I won't leave your side
No, I won't run
I don't even have nowhere to be

She said at first she was scared
She never felt like this before
That I took her heart and made it mine
I said it's okay, baby
Here's my heart

It's alright to be alone
As long as you call at night
To tell me that you miss me
And that you're gonna come home soon

She said at first she was scared
She never felt like this before
That I took her heart and made it mine
I said it's okay, baby
Here's my heart.
Now make it yours
Track Name: Wanderlust
When I woke up this morning
I walked right out the door
No direction, no destination
I just couldn't stay here no more

There's this wanderlust
I can't suppress
Sometimes I have to leave the places that I love
To see what there is to see
To feel what there is to feel

I'm not running away
I cherish every second I am home
But sometimes my feet
are like compass needles
They point to directions I don't know

There's this wanderlust
I can't suppress
Sometimes I have to leave the places that I love
To see what there is to see
To feel what there is to feel
Track Name: The Wishing Well
I throw my last dime in the wishing well
I wish you well, my friend
Even if you've wished me to hell
A long time ago

We share so many memories
We shared a lot of friends
You came to me when times were bad
You came to me in good times too
But still you decided
Not to be my friend anymore

I throw my last dime in the wishing well
I wish you well, my friend
Even if you've wished me to hell
A long time ago
Track Name: Do Not Reply
I always tried my best
To focus on the things
That weren't important to you
But meant the world to me

You have no idea
I quit university
about a year ago
And that's not the only thing
I don't want you to know.



You never gave a damn about me
You never cared about your other kids
But please just listen for once
To what I have to say

You never were a father to me
You're just a stranger who texts me for christmas
You'll never be a father to me
It's way to late for that

So here's to next christmas
And here's to me not writing back

I'm not writing back
Track Name: Why?
I'm counting the days
Until the changes come
That I've been waiting for for all my life
I'm swimming in this sea of inequality
I've spent my life watching this ship sink

Why does everybody act like this?
Why does nobody care?
Why is everything so meaningless to them?

I've watched people stand up
I've watched them falling down
But most people just stand still
They don't move an inch.
Until they're buried in the soil of shattered dreams and regret.

Why does everybody act like this?
Why does nobody care?
Why is everything so meaningless to them?
Track Name: Letter Of Application
Sending out letters of application
And a mediocre resumé
To get a job I don't really want
But need to pay my rent

People try so hard
To get the things they don't really want
People hardly try
To make their time worthwhile

I did some fucked up jobs
Got hardly paid enough
I've listened to my boss one too many times
Now it's time for me to get by
With what I love to do

I did so many fucked up jobs
Got hardly paid enough
I've listened to my boss one too many times
Now it's time for me to get by
With what I love to do

I love singing songs for you!
Track Name: It'll Last
If I had a dollar
For every eternity I spent with you
I'd have one dollar

We could take that dollar
And buy ourselves some records
A house or at least a drink

We could take rides on the ferris wheel
Or just stare into the sky
Thinking about what went right

If I could
I would love you longer than 'til the end of time
But I'm sorry, darling
Love only lasts forever
And not a minute more

Let's go out tonight
And sing like nobody cares
Let's dance like nobody stares at us
As we make fools of ourselves

I love the way you go crazy
And I love the way you look at me
When I am crazy too

If I could
I would love you longer than 'til the end of time
But I'm sorry, darling
Love only lasts forever
And not a minute more

Oh, I will love you longer
Than 'til the end of time
I don't care about eternitys
I only care about you
And that feeling won't end
With the end of time.
