Track Name: Hindsight
Spent my whole life waiting
And I'm struggling to find
The courage to get off my ass
And figure out what’s mine
I hope you know I check my phone
I'm waiting for your call
I’ll take this burden off your shoulders
And I will take the fall

Where did I go wrong
I wasn't thinking straight
Hasty as it was
It was probably for the best
It was probably for the best

I've spent a few weeks waiting
And I’ve made up my own mind
You’ve probably been sat there waiting
You’ll be waiting for sometime

You will be waiting
For some time
You will be waiting

Where did I go wrong
I wasn't thinking straight
Hasty as it was
It was probably for the best
It was probably for the best

Trying to forget you
You’re haunting all my dreams
I wake up in a cold sweat
And I hope you’re next to me

Where did I go wrong
I wasn't thinking straight
Hasty as it was
It was probably for the best
It was probably for the best
Track Name: Blind
The flick of the lights is doing no good for these tired eye on the late night drives to your place
You’d call me up went things got bad just to have me by your side, I put up with it for so long, when things got better you moved on overnight

I’m over it now but it still leaves me feeling just a little sour
I was being played for so long
I hope one day you get what you deserve
Hiding under that innocent smile is just a girl that will never learn

I know I said I’m over it now
But lets not forger how long it took
I was down for so long
Sleepless nights make the days roll into one

Went things got better you'd moved on over night

I’m over it now but it still leaves me feeling just a little sour
I was being played for so long
I hope one day you get what you deserve
Hiding under that innocent smile is just a girl that will never learn

My tired eyes were blind for so long couldn’t see how I could move on but I'm better than ever now
Track Name: Four Years
Holding hands is the thing I miss the most about it
But it's ok cause now my hands aren't so crowded
Sharing a kiss is thing I miss the most about it
But it's ok cause now my tongues not divided

That hard slab of heartache is still sliding down my throat
This is just another sad song that I wish I never wrote
That long walk home made my feet hurt
My sleepy eyes made my head hurt

Retract the pain four years of my life gone down the drain
I stare at photographs for what seem like days
Just take a look at the mess you made
I should close the book or at least turn the page
Close the book or just turn the page

I’m not gonna miss those crowded nights
There’s only space for me and my sleepy eyes

Holding hands is the thing I miss the most about it
But it's ok cause now my hands aren't so crowded
Sharing a kiss is thing I miss the most about it
But it's ok cause now my tongues not divided

Four years of my life gone down the drain
But it's ok (but it's ok)
Now I see in colour and not just grey
I’m not gonna miss those crowded nights
There’s only space here for me and my sleepy eyes
Track Name: Far Away From Home
I’m envious of everyone
And I always think that I’ve got nothing going for me
But in reality I’ve got the whole world at my feet
I know it may have taken the last four years
To pick my self up and get back on my feet

No matter how many times I forget you
You keep showing up running circles in my head
I’ve heard the words I will never forget you
A thousand times over they're still yet to be true

So it's been good for a while now
The lonely nights have started taking their toll
All my friends have girlfriends
I'm in backyard on my own

I know it may have taken the past four years
I’m on my own now got headaches and sore feet

No matter how many times I forget you
You keep showing up running circles in my head
I’ve heard the words I will never forget you
A thousand times over they're still yet to be true

Sometimes I feel so far away from home
Even though I’m sat here in my room
I wouldn't miss this place if I left
It’s the people here that make me stay
Track Name: Worn Out
I’ve tried to see what happiness is left inside of me
But I'm finding it hard to put my feet in front of me

With small steps and steady hands
I’ll find my footing again

Better days are just around the corner
And they couldn't come soon enough
This weeks been really rough
I'm keeping my head up
I'm watching my step
So I don't trip and fall back to where I began

Maybe it's time to open a new door
These cigarettes are making my lungs feel sore
Lonely nights watching the rain pour
How long can I keep this up for?

With small steps and steady hands
I’ll find my footing again

Better days are just around the corner
And they couldn't come soon enough
This weeks been really rough
I'm keeping my head up
I'm watching my step
So I don't trip and fall back to where I began

Where did I go wrong?
I wasn’t thinking straight
Hasty as it was
It was probably for the best

Sleepless nights, feeling uninspired
But no matter what, I’ll keep moving on

I'm trying to forget you, you're haunting all my dreams
I wake up in a cold sweat
And I hope you next to me

I'm only 22 years old and I'm only getting older
Can’t quit when you come this far
Can’t quit when you come this far
Track Name: Ten Years Old, Twelve Years On
No I’ve never had a day
Where I didn't question
If I'm living my life in the right way
Chasing the spotlight it’s always in view
But it's always so far away

Picked up guitar at ten years old
And I haven't put it down for twelve years now
No I’m not giving up that easily
No I’m not giving up that easily

Sometimes I wonder if I need to grow up
I’m trying to live out a dream but the odds are against me
But I’ll never give up even if I spend my whole life trying
When I’m grey and old, I’ll look back and say we had a good time
We had the best time

Writing in my old school book
Sat here alone in my busted ass car
I'm 22 and I’m just getting older
You can’t just quit when you've come this far

Sometimes I wonder if I need to grow up
I’m trying to live out a dream but the odds are against me
But I’ll never give up even if I spend my whole life trying
When I’m grey old, I’ll look back and say we had a good time
We had the best time

My bodies aching I'm finding it hard
To write down my thoughts in the lines of these songs
Sleepless nights feeling uninspired
But no matter what I keep moving on

Sometimes I wonder if I need to grow up
I’m trying to live out a dream but the odds are against me
But I’ll never give up even if I spend my whole life trying
When I’m grey and old, I’ll look back and say we had a good time
We had the best time
