Track Name: Waking Up
sometimes i drag my feet
until the end of the week
i play these stupid games
between what i want now
and what i need in the end
sometimes it's just hard to pretend

sometimes i hang my head
until i fall back into bed
and when i finally sleep
i only dream of the most stressful things
so ironic, my one break from it all

would you rather have a nice dream
but wake up unsatisfied
even though your life is fine?
or would you rather have a nightmare
and wake up without a care
'cause in the end you know you're fine?
in comparison you're fine

you have no idea
what it's like to be me
i have no idea
what it's like to be you
Track Name: Confidently Be
if you want to talk
i will listen for eternity
'cause you can't stay boxed up
you've got let your feelings free
tell them how it is going to be

you deserve to be free
you deserve to be free
you deserve to be free
you deserve to be free

well this stairwell is tall
but just one step ain't nothing at all
don't be afraid to speak
i know that you are all but weak

when there is such a gap
it's so much easier to follow the map
sometimes the route you're in
will drag you down until the end
god it's easy to pretend

you deserve to be free
you deserve to be free
you deserve to be free
you deserve to confidently be!
Track Name: Home
the air is getting cold
harder to breathe
and i'm starting to miss
the sugary summer breeze
holes in my jeans,
no bitter in betweens

i've got to find my way back home

the leaves are starting to fall
searching for their graves
and they'll become the soil
and surround that from which they were made
i'm starting to see
that home is in me

now i've found my way back home

home...
find my way back home...
Track Name: As You Are
i can feel it rising
the start of myself
i can feel it growing all by itself

i want you to know
you're beautiful as you are
please don't pull apart from yourself
come with me
society is just a game
don't place blame
just break away, break away

i can see a smile rising
deep inside
let it out, girl
please don't hide

i can see your love flowing
filling time
let it out girl
and i will mine

well i want you to know
you're beautiful as you are
please don't pull apart from yourself
come with me
society is just a game
don't place blame
just break away, break away
Track Name: I'd Rather Be Wrong
well i've got a sinking feeling again
like i've lost my ground
well i try to mend, not to break but to bend
keep the good thoughts around, around

maybe i am missing something but
i just can't see the light sometimes
i try to change my life
but i just can't put up a fight sometimes
i'd rather be wrong

well i've got a rising feeling once again
like i've come back home
but i feel like i've lost what i had
but i can't stay monotone
monotone

if you want to sit and talk about life
i will talk all night
but if you talk down to me, i'll just be up above
up above, up above

maybe i am missing something but
i just can't see your side sometimes
i try to change my life but
i just can't put up a fight

sometimes

i'd rather be wrong
i'd rather be wrong
i'd rather be wrong
Track Name: Slow Patience
i know you don't mean harm
but you're doing me wrong
it's so easy to see
when you're floating around

you know i don't mean harm
but i'm doing you wrong
it's so easy to see
when i'm sulking around

how do you feel
when i feel this way?
do you feel at all?
it's a slow patience
but i know that
one day we will make it

i know that you care
and i know it's unfair
to hold you hostage to yourself
but you're taking for granted
this love i freely give

how do you feel
when i feel this way?
do you feel at all?
it's a slow patience
but i know that
one day we will make it
Track Name: Shovel
well I know
that you can't have it both ways
with what is good now
and bad for you later
but i still try to find some sort of medium
but there is no place for me to put my feet on

well i've still got my shovel in hand
yeah, i've still got my shovel in hand

well they say
a wet man does not feel the rain
but i know that he can still feel the pain
it's so easy to lose sight of everything
when a shovel is all that i thought to bring

well i try to keep peace
but i end up inevitably beat
well i'm sorry for ruining our relations
with my expectations

but you sure seemed to lose interest fast
yeah you sure seemed to lose interest fast
and you're not the first one, no

well they say
a wet man does not feel the rain
but i know that he can still feel the pain
it's so easy to lose sight of everything
when a shovel is all that i thought to bring

i guess i'll use it one more time
to dig a hole as deep as mine
and although i'm scared of the end
i'm going to throw that damn shovel in
Track Name: Love Yourself
sometimes i have to ask myself
is this how i would treat somebody else?
well i hold such expectations
and it has led me to realizations
like we're only human
like we're only human

well you come to me crying
and all i can do is hug
you say your hope is dying
and it's just part of growing up
well i say don't give it up
love, please don't give it up

a broken heart still pumps the blood you need
to live
and although it seems hard now, i know in the end
you'll be okay, love, you'll be okay

we walk with our eyes on the ground
we won't let our problems make a sound
and we feel so alone when really
we are all in the same boat

a broken heart still pumps the blood you need
to live
and although it seems hard now, i know in the end
you'll be okay, love, you'll be okay

sometimes i have to tell myself
i love you
and when it feels like there's no one else
just say i love you
Track Name: Concrete
there's nothing like
walking alone out at night
you feel the concrete
beneath your cold feet

well i try
to make it all alright
it's fruitless, at least i try

there's nothing like
peeking through your own eyelids
when the time is too early to tell
and the light off your windowsill
is not enough to
bring you to

it's your life to live
it's your life to live

in the end it's your own life to live
in the end it's your own time to give
in the end it's just a compilation of complications
that make us who we are
Track Name: Cincinnati
well welcome home
see how much you've grown
and though the house hasn't changed at all
you're beginning to feel like fall

well welcome to
a brand new you
and though the stars haven't changed at all
you're beginning to feel like fall

oh, you're growing up
please don't fight it
change is all we are
oh, you're growing up
please don't fight it
change is all we are

change is all we are

concrete and bricks
thrown stones and sticks
i fill these shoes with a scrape and a bruise
but a smile is what i choose

oh you're growing up,
please don't fight it
change is all we are
oh you're growing up
please don't fight it
change is all we are

oh you're growing up
please don't fight it
change is all we are
oh you're growing up
please don't fight it
change is all we are

change is all we are

well welcome home
see how much you've grown
Track Name: We're Only Human
take it easy
don't be so hard
on yourself
any more

slow it down
you know you're allowed
you've only got so much time
don't fill your mind with expectations
any more

don't you worry at all
the best you can do
is all you can do

take a step off
this train called life
no it won't wait
but i know you'll find your way
by foot, yeah, you'll find your way

don't you worry at all
cause after all, we are

only human
