TIRED

I’m so tired, of writing the same songs
About the same kind of guys, and the same wrongs
Cause I always fall harder than expected
For the guy I know is not worth my time
I can’t wait for you to say, you didn’t mean to
I can’t wait for you to say I’m sorry, I just didn’t think of you that way,

And I’m so tired, of being outside
Of the spotlight of your eyes.
I can’t wait for you to tell me that you’re trouble
And I can’t wait for you to blame that I’d been warned

All I ask is that you be kind to me,
All I ask, is that it’s not just take without give
I’m treading carefully, cause I’m terrified enough already
That without you I might lose my will to live

I’m so tired of being in the background
I feel I’m getting lost, behind these sounds
I can’t wait, for you to tell me just how busy you are
Oh I can’t wait, for you to say your life’s insane.

All I ask is that you be kind to me, 
All I ask, is that it’s not just take without give
I’m treading carefully, cause I’m terrified enough already
That without you I might lose my will to live

I’m falling harder, than expected
For a guy that I know is not worth my time
I can’t wait, for the lines to come
Before they do, I’ll assure all of my friends
 That he’s different from the other ones.

All I ask is that you be kind to me, 
All I ask, is that it’s not just take without give
I’m treading carefully, cause I’m terrified enough already
That without you I might lose my will to live

SEE YOU AROUND

Well it might be wrong
But he’s everything I need
They say he’s no good
But that’s not who I see
I’ve known him forever,
I don’t know him at all
He’s done nothing but good for me
Every time I fall
He picks me up,
Sets me gently back down
And I’ve done next to nothing
To keep him coming around

Reality sets in
As we leave our hometown
Timing works against us
And all that we have found
I’ll miss you everyday,
‘Til I find a way
To accept what we are now
But until then,
I’ll see you around

Have one more discussion
To give this one more chance
I have no convictions
No need to second-guess
If this should be less
Than it is more
Cause I wish nothing but for him
To be on my porch,
Knocking at my door

I’d let him on in
Wrap his arms around me tight
I won’t try to pretend
Not to have wanted this tonight

Reality sets in
As we leave our hometown
Timing works against us
And all that we have found
I’ll miss you everyday, 
‘Til I find a way
To accept what we are now
But until then, I guess 
I’ll see you around

Reality sets in
As we leave our hometown
Timing works against us
And all that we have found
I’ll miss you everyday, 
‘Til I find a way
To accept what we are now
But until then, I guess 
I'll miss you everyday,
'Til I find a way
to accept what we are now but until then
I’ll see you around

DEAD OF WINTER

Oh what a way
To start the New Year
I should’ve stayed,
As long as I could here
Cause I still feel your arms
Wrapped around me
I still feel your lips on mine
In a smile

I don’t know why
He doesn’t care anymore
It’s hard to describe
What he’s done to my heart
I look to his eyes
They don’t meet mine anymore
And I don’t understand
What it was I was trying for
What it was I was trying for

It’s hard to make sense
Of all these goodbyes
Hard not to believe
This is all there is to life
In the dead of winter
Still feel the heat
Of my hand wrapped up in yours
Walking those familiar streets

I don’t know why
He doesn’t care anymore
It’s hard to describe
What he’s done to my heart
I look to his eyes
They don’t meet mine anymore
And I don’t understand 
What it was I was trying for
What it was I was trying for

OUR OLD FRIENDS

Should’ve by now,
Figured this out
I should know who I am,
  Apart from you
But all of my friends,
Are so far away
And I’ve reached the end,
Of my contrived display
That I’m doing ok with this

But I sincerely hope that you are doing alright
Life has been harder without you by side
And I don’t mean to point any fingers,
Cause there’s no blame at all to be had
Just wanted to say that I miss you.
And our old friends.

I've been seeing this guy,
Not sure yet if he’s right for me
On days like these I could use your strong advice.
Finally quit that job for such little pay,
Life’s just too short to waste on jobs you hate

These are the things that I used to call you
To tell you about, at the end of my day.
And I guess I still could,
I just don’t know that I
Would know what to say

But I sincerely hope that you are doing alright
Life has been harder without you by side
I sincerely hope that you are doing alright
Life has been harder without you by side

I miss seeing our cars,
Span the whole length of
The street where we’d park
Outside your parents’ house,
To do nothing at all,
For no reason beyond,
Being with you,
Being with you and our old friends.
