Track Name: Perfect
It must be nice to breathe the air that you breathe.
(It must be nice) To feel the warmth of your glow.
It must be wonderful.
I'm sure your skin makes the heavenly angels cry
And they refuse to dry their eyes
Because you're just so beautiful.

But if you could open up your eyes you'd see.
Maybe you just need some time to realize.
Maybe it's just me.

If I could scream I would tell you a lot of things.
I'd tell you how I think this should work.
I know that you're perfect, but are you really worth it?
Just turn your back and run away.

Can't you see that every night I think about you?
I wish that I could stay, but I should leave.
It hurts to break your heart slowly.
I should break it all at once.
I can not believe how bad it must feel
Living your life thinking love is real
Just to have those images torn down by me.
You deserve much better and I should settle for less.

Please don't cry.
I know it's hard to let go, but you know that you'll be okay.
Please don't cry.
Dry your eyes and realize that we must go our separate ways.

If I could scream I would tell you a lot of things.
I'd tell you how I think this should work.
I know that you're perfect, but are you really worth it?
Just turn your back and run away.
If you'd let me breathe I think I'd reconsider things,
But you've just got to let go.
I know that you love me and you don't want to lose me,
But can't you see that I'm gone?
Track Name: The One Who Got Away
I prayed for you.
I prayed for you.
And I know this is no mistake.
How I love you lover, that will never end.
And I leave here with this last confession:
I don’t know if I’ll get over you.

It’s a plan that I made and I know you will see
That I had you in mind all the way.

I know that you ought to be the one who gets away.
I know that you ought to be the one who gets away.

I prayed for us.
I prayed for us.
And I think I found out all the answers.
Now I’ve got to make it up to you.
And I know that is no excuse.
How I love you lover, has yet to begin.

It’s a plan that I made and I know that you’ll see
That I had you in mind all the way.

I know that you ought to be the one who gets away.
I know that you ought to be the one who gets away.

I know it’ll hurt when you think about it.
It always will.
I know it’ll kill when you’re thinking of me.
I know it will.

I know that you ought to be the one who gets away.
I know that you ought to be the one who gets away.

And I hope you finally find the love.
You have been waiting all your life.
Wave goodnight, ‘cause I won’t see you on my way out.
Wave goodnight, ‘cause I won’t see you on my way out that door.
And I don’t want you to notice when I’m gone.
And you don’t have to forgive me when you wake.
Track Name: Undone
It happened again.
I thought I found a heart to twist and bend.
So I moved right in.
Flirtatious banter was always my friend.

And like a fool
I thought I had you trapped inside my hands.
Then you brought me to my knees.

I wanted you to come undone.
Instead, you stood and watched me run
Until I caved.

So if there's something that you're needing,
Say it now.

So I crawled home,
Only to find you standing at my door.
I turned on the charm
In hopes of leaving you there wanting more.

And like a fool
I thought I had you trapped inside my hands.
Then you brought me to my knees.

I wanted you to come undone.
Instead, you stood and watched me run
Until I caved.

So if there's something that you're needing,
Say it now 'cause I won't listen
I'm not listening after this moment.
I don't want to see you around here anymore
'Cause before this,
I believed I would never speak of love again
And then you brought me to my knees

I wanted you to come undone.
Instead you stood and watched me run
Until I caved.

So if there's something that you're needing,
Say it now.
Track Name: Walking Away
No regrets.
That’s what we said.
Know we tried the best that we can.
Go take flight.
I wish you the best.

So this is the end, how I read it.
No more than friends.
I won’t forget it.

We’re walking away.
And I’m hanging on to every word that touches your lips.
We’re moving on.
So why do I feel like there’s nothing else for me.

No regrets.
That’s what you said.
I stayed quiet beneath all the tears.
It’s not that I don’t want you to be satisfied with your life.
It’s just that I want you to be satisfied with me.
It’s not that I don’t want you to spread your wings and fly away.
It’s just that I hope you will fly to me someday.

But this is goodbye, so long, farewell.
Never more. Never friends.
This is how we end.

Because we’re walking away.
And I’m hanging on to every word that touches your lips.
We’re moving on.
So why do I feel like there’s nothing else for me out there.

I know it’s hard for you to see this all through my eyes.
But you said you’d always feel for me and I know you meant it.
I know you meant it.

But we’re walking away.
And I’m hanging on to every word that touches your lips.
We’re moving on.
So why do I feel like there’s no one else for me.

We’re walking away.
I’m fighting the urge to call your name once again.
And you’re moving on.
But I’m standing still.
I’ve lost my place in your world.

You’re walking away.
You’re walking away.
You’re leaving me here to stay.
You’re walking on.
Track Name: Montréal
Tragic how you love with your mind and hate with your heart.
It’s selfish to be lonely all the time.
Desperate how you look in my eyes and then turn away.
It’s selfish to be lonely all alone.
You play the role of nonchalant, forgetting the lines as you go.
Reducing all your dialogue to the only phrase you’ve come to know:
Don’t fall to pieces tonight.

I would give you anything, anything at all, if you stay.
I’m begging you please as I fall to my knees.
I pray.

Everything’s done.
Everything’s gone.
I think of you wanting to choose a reason to win.
Everything’s lost.
And I think of you desperate to lose.

I’m thinking here.
But I can’t get my head around.
I can’t get my head around it.

I would give you anything, anything at all, if you stay.
I’m begging you please as I fall to my knees.
I pray.
I pray that you don’t fall to pieces tonight.
I pray that you don’t fall to pieces, alright?

Everything’s done.
Everything’s gone.
And I think of you desperate to choose a reason to win.
But everything’s lost.
And I think of you wanting to lose.

Everything’s done.
Everything’s gone.
I think of you wanting to choose a reason to win.
But everything’s lost.
And I think of you desperate to lose.

I’m thinking here.
I can’t get my head...

I cry tonight.
I cry because I wanted to reach out to you.
I wanted to reach out to you.
Track Name: Broken Stage Mic
Get your hair out of your face
And look at me when I'm talking to you.
Fix your posture. Listen longer.
You're a punk, you need something to do.

I fall apart.
I fall apart.

Broken stage mic. Choppy bass lines.
Focus back here, I'm talking to you.
You're a roamer; a sojourner.
With no back line, what do you do?

You keep pacing back and forth
And asking questions to somebody's God.
But the answers come so slowly.
You're too impatient to figure it out.

I fall apart.
I fall apart.

Broken stage mic. Choppy bass lines.
Focus back here, I'm talking to you.
You're a roamer; a sojourner.
You're a punk, you need something to do.

Hey, where was I to go?
It looks like your tomorrow is falling away from you.
Hey, what was I to do?
I don't believe tomorrow.
I don't believe tomorrow.

I fall apart for you.
I fall apart for you.
I'm falling apart.

Hey, where was I to go?
It looks like your tomorrow is falling away from you.
Hey, what was I to do?
I don't believe tomorrow.
I don't believe tomorrow.

Hey, what were you to know?
It looks like your tomorrow is falling apart for you.
Hey, what was I to do?
I don't believe tomorrow is coming back for you.

I fall apart.
I fall apart.
