Track Name: Good Enough
It's been two years
and I only feel worse
when everything's perfect
I still find a way to get hurt
And now I'm afraid
I'll never be good enough
of a friend, I'm scared you'll get bored
and we wont keep in touch
Yeah, I barely call
except when there's something wrong
or nothing to do
when days get long

And you're there to talk
It's always nothing
A familiar voice
I feel alright
Yeah you're the first one I call
when I feel like nothing
You're the one there to talk
until I say I'm fine

It took me so long
to admit that I'm giving up
on holding this pose
I've been acting around
all the people I love
and I wouldn't know
how to be like myself anymore
Yeah, I've been trying so hard
to remember who I was before

And you're there to talk
It's always nothing
A familiar voice
I feel alright
Yeah you're the first one I call
when I feel nothing
You're the one there to talk
until I say I'm fine.

I'm fine.
Track Name: Sun Bruised
You've been afraid
for so long
of everything around you
In pictures I saw
how your eyes burned
before I was young

Everything's getting worse
All the weight you've been carrying
I know you
Sun bruised kid.

I don't wanna' be somebody
I just wanna' be ok
Everyone seems so much better
Maybe I'm the only one that's changed
Track Name: Maritime States
I'm stretching out my arms
reaching for both coasts
My traveling heart
never gets that far from home

I'm keeping my words
tucked inside my mouth
everything I'm afraid of
I will never say out loud

The things I believe
are constantly changing
I just wanna' be a part
of something worth saving

I'm brave in my head
but when it comes time to act
I'm never around
It's the courage that I always lack

I've grown
so scared of everything now
I can't find a way
to calm myself down
I'm so sick
of waking up to bad news
when every day
gets a little bit harder to get through

I'm stretching out my arms
reaching for the people I love
My traveling heart
never gets as far as my head does

I've grown
so scared of everything now
I can't find a way
to calm myself down
I'm so sick
of waking up to bad news
When every day
gets a little bit harder to get through
Track Name: Basement
Well it rained all the way down
it was the start of the summer
Before all the bad news
about your younger brother
Now we're driving in your car
pretending that everything's alright
If we're not that much older
why's it feel like a lifetime

Where'd the days go
when we were kids in a basement
Now I write you letters
but they're never happy
That's all I have to say I guess

I've been learning to let go
of all of the bad things that happen
I tried being angry
and everyone and all of my friends
I lost what was closest
when I disregarded my actions
Thought that this was the first time
anyone had ever felt like this

I'm not different
just left affected and nervous
This isn't always the person I was
it's just who I've become
towards everyone
Track Name: Nothing To Say
Sometimes I think we're all the same
and I'm not the only one with nothing to say
I tried acting like somebody else
when you were around
and I feel so stupid right now

Some days disappearing gets old
but I know it's easy to get comfortable
So I keep everyone in letters they write
and I say I'm fine
and I'm having such a good time

But I always wanna' be
somewhere else
Cause' I get so unsettled
when I come around
Track Name: Braddock Beach
Well they tore down
another house
and It all looks different
out of my window
And the kids run
through the neighborhood
There's a big game going on
out in the road

And the trucks stir
up the black earth
and it settles all around
The same way I do now

I always take the same way home
saw all they left were fences
where there was a hospital
and I know I'm ok
it's just I barely come around
much these days

Like I've watched boats
leave the shore exposed
it takes time to settle down
The same way I do now
Track Name: Postcards
You wrote that I hope that this find you
when you're in a good place
And today I was better
because I wanted to change

Seems like I've been bitter forever
and unhappily young
All my problems were mountains
that I never could climb up

But I was just a kid
and everything seems worse than it is
Track Name: Close To The Sun
You ask if I wanna' go out
but I stay home
and soon I know
I'll grow to hate this house
Because when I said
I'd be better by myself
what I meant was help

I remember the sound
of waking up by water
and how that summer
felt like a movie
Before the first time
I saw my friends cry
Now I quit coming by

The closer I got to the sun
the further I withdrew from everyone
Track Name: Drop Out
When It starts to seem like you're losing heart
in everything and everyone you love
it's easy just to give up
And who I am keeps changing with the sun
It goes down / It comes up
A bad mood / Some bad blood
I'm bitter / So what

In a world that's made to tear you down
it's blend in or drop out
Such a narrow line we follow
With a fucked head
you can't grow
And change comes so slow
when you wait for tomorrow

Everything we fight for gets taken from us
Divided our efforts will fall apart
We are tired but we're never giving up
I am weary but I'll never lose my heart
Track Name: Forget
I wanna' say
I'm better than I was
and that I'm not the kind
to give up
And I wanna' know
just how strong I am
Yeah I don't care anymore
what happens
They're still my best friends

Everything makes me so afraid
All these things that I feel
but won't say
And sometimes I try
and act like I've forgot
But know when I say I'm alright
I'm not
But I'll keep my head up

I know it gets better
This isn't always how
I will remember growing up
