Track Name: This is not for You
If I could afford to I’d jump in those eyes, jump in those lies
If I could escape after every time,
I’d look in those eyes and fall for those lies

But this is not for you

Nothing feels as good
Nothing ever could
Now all that’s left is a taste of regret after every hope I drown

If there’s someone I could call,
Give me a sign, draw me a line
‘Cause everyone’s aching here
and my pulse, it isn’t clear

But nothing feels as good
Nothing ever could
Now all that’s left is a taste of regret after every hope I drown

Take me, take me, take me please
Take me apart
Take my mind, don’t leave a scar x2

If I could afford to I’d jump in those eyes, jump in those lies

But this is not for you

Nothing feels as good,
Nothing ever could,
Maybe it fades away, but not today

Nothing feels as good,
Nothing ever could,
Now all that's left is the taste of regret after every hope I drown
Track Name: Take it All
See I’ve been doing some thinking
and I’ve decided to let you in
To bruise my skin,
Shade me in

Do you think anyone would notice,
if we took off into the air?
Do you think they would forgive me,
for giving up and going nowhere?

‘Cause all I see now is you

So take it all,
whatever’s left of my mind
All my faults are on show now
I’ve got nothing left to hide

Please don’t do me wrong
I know it’s hard to believe me but feeling doesn’t come so easy
I’ve never been that strong
Always looking for excuses so I can never be at fault

So let me fall
and promise me I’ll survive
I’d break all of my bones,
give you all my soul
just to keep you satisfied

‘Cause all I see now is you
I could do anything you asked me to

Please don’t do me wrong
I know it’s hard to believe me but feeling doesn’t come so easy
I’ve never been that strong
Always looking for excuses so I can never be at fault

Take me somewhere I can grow
Where I’m the only thing you notice
‘Cause I need it
Track Name: Push me Down
Are you surprised
that we’re not so alike?
But that’s the funny thing about time
It ages our skin, it ages our minds
and now we’ve grown apart into two separate hearts

But you forget that I know you,
You’ve not changed a fraction
And you forget that it was always me
Following your reaction

Now that’s something I can’t do

Can you understand
Not everybody’s happy with their current standings?
I can’t handle your accusations, your sabotage
I’m not secure enough to ignore it,
You hit me hard

That’s just how I’ve always been

So how much further are you gonna push me down?

Can you understand
Not everybody’s happy with their current standings?
I can’t handle your accusations, your sabotage
I’m not secure enough to ignore it,
You hit me hard

That’s just how I’ve always been

I don’t want to end up like you
You push me further away from your wing
You make me feel so small,
Criticizing all I am and who I’ve always wanted to be
I’m scared of who I’m gonna be
You took the easy route

So how much further are you gonna push me down?

I can’t see a face I know
the longer you stay, the less that I grow

That’s something I can’t do
Track Name: Wish You Were
I want you to forgive me for speaking out of turn
Of all the places that I’ve been, this is where I’ve learnt the most
But there’s something I can’t find, and you know where I need to go
Honey you don’t scare me like you used to

A heart’s gonna change as sure as the wind blows
But before I lose your hand won’t you tighten your hold,
There’s something I can’t find, tell me where I need to go
Honey you don’t scare me like you used to

I wish you away with all the love I could bear to lose to you
If there’s something on your mind don’t let me know
I wish you were here more than I could ever begin to show
Tell me you’ll take of yourself and I’ll be fine

I want you to forget all the times I acted cold
And our silly little rows but you were always so bold
We both had our faults and I will let them go
But honey you don’t scare me like you used to

I wish you away with all the love I could bear to lose to you
If there’s something on your mind don’t let me know
I wish you were here more than I could ever begin to show
Tell me you’ll take of yourself and I’ll be fine
