Track Name: Chasing Lines
I tried reaching out to you
But you didn't seem to understand
That i would have done anything to talk to you.

And honestly, I'm sick to death
Of these thoughts racing through me head
When I'm trying to settle down.

The future is coming,
We are all getting older.
Please say something,
I swear I'll move closer.

All these things i never said are hanging like a raincloud over my head
All these times I've chased your lines, your replies running through my head.
I can think of better things to do with my time.

I'm avoiding nights out on the town
Cause they just bring me down
There's paint on your faces and i'm sure

That if you weren't so drunk, you probably wouldn't be talking to me.

Looks like our futures come
We've all gotten older
You said said something, and remember,
I moved closer.

All these things i never said are raining from my chest
All these times I've chased your lines, your replies running through my head.
I guess it's better than being alone.

I spent my time, so many nights, trying to be the one you needed by your side. I'm sorry for being so high-maintainence, i know that i must have tested your patience but the way i was feeling was so intense and i've got to let it all go.
Track Name: Is It Too Late?
Is it too late to tell you I'm sorry? I'm sorry i can't change...
I'm not the careful girl you met in the summer but you're not the same boy either.
Oh love, remember the days we spent indoors?
With Scrubs and pizza and deep little talks?
Or the time we spent playing records in your room?
The turntable would spin, and our hearts would swoon...

You were the first place I could rest my head
And lay my body in a strangers bed tell me baby,
Did you forget all those feelings we once shared?

Is it too late to tell you I'm sorry? I'm sorry i can't change...
I'm not the careful girl you met in the summer but you're not the same boy either.
You had a habit of telling white lies,
Was i really like the stars that filled your skies?
Now I'll cut the rope around your throat,
But the guilt will still make you choke.

I wanna talk about your tattoos and the ink beneath your skin,
Those marks will never leave your body until you die
And you become nothing.

Is it too late to tell you I'm sorry? I'm sorry i can't change...
I'm not the careful girl you met in the summer but you're not the same boy either.
You're Ex-Ex Girlfriends called you a cheater, she said you did it with me.
I called you God and they tore that heart from me
I called you God and they tore me apart from the seams.

Now we don't talk.
Am i really the one to blame?
I'm sure my words haven't made any difference,
But i still think of you when it rains.
Track Name: Be Strong
Oh it was just last night
we layed looking at stars so bright
and in that moment, it was all i needed
but like so many before
whats gonna happen to this potential i hold?
truth is a disguise that is so deceiving


where’d you go? (this is like the ocean)

oh I was sinking in salt water
like i was pulled into the sea
i was washed out from the harbour
all my colours exploding
i picked up the pieces
you shattered of my mind
if this is the end,
then i’ll be strong tonight

i need to drop these obsessions
it’s just not wise
dreaming of the unattainable
putting realism out of sight
i say just be a good person
and the world will be good to you
find something that you love
and swear that you’ll se it through

where’d you go? now i think i know.

you gave up on all this
now what do you show for it?
you’re stuck in your own mess
and i have no time for it

I used to be callous
Now I'm clearing my name
I'm sorry for hurting you
But just know I've changed

oh I was sinking in salt water
like i was pulled into the sea
i was washed out from the harbour
all my colours exploding
i picked up the pieces
you shattered of my mind
if this is the end,
then i’ll be strong tonight
Track Name: Punk Rock Woke Me Up
put me in a room with a view, let the lights go down
see people on stage that i love, playing my favourite sounds
surrounded by people like me makes me feel alright
it chases the ghosts away that haunt my lonelier nights


punk rock woke me up
and its the only thing to get me off the ground when I’ve had enough
and i don’t know where I’m heading
but its safe to be betting
that il find my way back home
to another punk rock show

in my room on my own, cut off from everyone
turn my headphone up loud playing my favourite songs
we all have the same plan, to get the hell out of town
we grew up and got out and your still stuck around

punk rock woke me up
and its the only thing to get me off the ground when I’ve had enough
and i don’t know where I’m heading
but its safe to be betting
that il find my way back home
to another punk rock show

in my head i hold this certainty
that living this way is who i’m meant to be
look down on my all you want but i still feel alive
i still heal the sick, i'm you’re heroine in disguise.
Track Name: Paint
I’m singing out
you’re hearing what i’ve been thinking about
i used to be so quiet
now i can’t seem to shut my mouth
i painted my self in colours
now i’ll take them off
stripped down my identity
now this is all that I’ve got


you look at me like ‘she thinks she’s so cool’
but if it means putting stuff up my nose,
then i never want to be like you
oh i know the way you are; you drink go out lay down
with another boy every night, and that aint cool
so don’t put me down


hey there blue eyes, have you noticed me stare
sorry if i creep you out, it must just be something thats in the air
well i like looking at your face, it puts me in a daze
but it hurts to see you sad when you can’t even speak babe


i had a best friend, and we both loved peter pan
but everyones gotta grow up and thats something i struggle to understand
And he would tell me tink ‘stop living in your head’
i’ve gotta turn this off cause it all wrong when your still sleeping in her bed

i went out to see his band that night
i hid away out of his sight
i hated to see him in the spotlight knowing i wasn’t on his mind
never mind, we’ll be okay,
lets just paint ourselves back together again.
Track Name: Staying
It's been three years
since leaving and drinking made my fears
but now I'm coming clear
I'd be lying if i said i didn't wish you were here

I hope we slowly drift away
and let the sun come up on a new day
when you know what to say
and I'm not fed up of never getting my own way

my girls they shine like gold
its a friendship that i love to behold
and i hope when we grow old
these stories we are making will get retold

At night i sat on the hill
watching the tide with 'blindsided' in my ears
it brought me close to tears
there's a kindness in my soul that won’t disappear

‘i clung to you so tight all night' 'i know i didn't want to let go'
could you please stay here with me, i don't want you to go

lets just stay,
stay with me
lets just stay,
stay with me

I’ll invite you into my dreams
where there's a lonely wolf howling out to sea
if you stay with me
we can run together and explore these boundaries

my house is made of stone
and one day it will be buried by my bones
its a place I’ll always call my home
even when there's nowhere left to go

lets just stay,
stay with me
lets just stay,
stay with me
Track Name: Static Hum
The static from the speakers hums in my head, can’t help but think about you when I’m in bed.

I’ve felt like I can’t love lately, and its wearing me out.
I’ve felt like we’re leaving lately, so i started to tear it out.

Back to the static speakers that hum in my head, got caught up in feelings inside my chest. Oh, and I’ve been heaving in a desperate protest to silence the static speakers that hum in my head.

I’ve felt like I can’t love lately, and its wearing me out.
I’ve felt like we’re leaving lately, so i started to tear it out.

Tearing you down.
Track Name: Small Talk
You said last night that you nearly cried when you were watching Toy Story and it broke me inside and I just wanted to told you tight.
As we drove though the night my mind was turning and inside i was burning to say ‘Oh, i wish you didnt feel this way.'

So I’ve been drinking coffee in attempts to keep me awake, while you’re awake, while you can’t sleep at night, and i would hope that i’ll be here for you if you wanted to talk. So when you lie in bed with the TV on trying to forget about the ways i did wrong; just know I’m sorry and i didnt mean to hurt and make you feel this way.
While you at your show tonight il be sitting in my room under the fairy lights hoping you got an escape, and your gonna play it all away.
I know how it goes they ask you for more, they ask you if you want take anything to make it less sore and il know you’ll say no.

So when you sit in your bed tonight with the TV on trying to sleep just know that I’ve drank a coffee to keep me awake incase you need me to say ‘How as your day?’ and ‘What have you been up to?’ I know its just small talk, but i think its what you need; when you’ve felt it all day. And i swear il be here for you, if you need me to be.
Track Name: Like Ghosts
You treat me like a ghost, the way you only see me with no one else around.
You speak to me in code, and when i try to speak you turn me down.
And im tired of it, so tired of it...

So shut me out and let me back in when no ones looking, i’ll haunt you now and make you believe in apparition.
Cause I’m not scared of the phantom living in my walls, hes my friend and hes more loyal to me than you are.

This is getting deeper than i thought, my feelings are leaving me tangled in knots
A girl from Lowell once said ‘This is not just all in your head’, but that it is.
And im tired of it...

So shut me out and let me back in when no ones looking, i’ll haunt you now and make you believe in apparition.
Cause I’m not scared of the phantom living in my walls, hes my friend and hes more loyal to me than you are.

Lowell ghost, i need you now.
But you have no time for me.
Can you catch this drift?
It serves as eyes for you to see.
Track Name: This Will Be The Place I Haunt
Kicking away the lipstick-stained cigarette butt ends by the door...
Walking around the empty cups on the floor...
I came back here in the light; when we left it in the dark it was so hard.

So should I feel a change today? Although the world spins the same I’m living with a new name, one that doesn’t quite ring the same.

The sun came up and marked the end, maybe it’s time to let this go? But i just can’t seem to let you go.

So should i feel a change today? Although the world spins the same I’m living with a new name, one that doesn’t quite ring the same.

You look so different in the black and orange street light,
You had such a hold on me that night,
Remember the last words you said? You said ‘I can’t do this.’
Well, it looks like we’ve done it.

This will be the place that i haunt, but you’ll be the one that I don’t want.
Track Name: Who You Are
The distance thing seems to be working
And he shouted at me, I think that he’s hurting
A pain that is so undeserving,
Shake it off and let it go.

The nights are getting cold and the autumns turning
Out in The Axe and we sat there smoking
Our surroundings are constantly changing
Shake it off and let it go.

I want to work on myself, but I’ve lost some heart
And I swore id never do that, I sing to myself ‘I don’t know who you are’
Wanna work on myself but I’ve lost some heart
And i sing to myself
I don’t know who you are.

A new routine but the same old desire,
Just waiting for something to ignite this fire,
Something to lift me just a little higher,
Looks like I’ve got to do it myself.

If i let go of being so judgemental,
Maybe I’ll feel a little more settled.
So far, attempts have been unsuccessful
Looks like I’ve got to do it myself
Track Name: Already Running
I think a black fire burned tonight, there was a gothic mirror reflecting the light. I was shoved across the floor for a fight I’m helpless; my otherside has come alive.

I stood between her tongue and her lips. You make me draw a breath with just your fingertips. I always thought I was weaker than this; my stomach turns and my feet itch.

I just want to feel a fire again,
And direct my efforts in ways they will be well spent.
The words you said didn’t mean a thing.

I’m sorry for my insecurities; there was no other way to get through to me.
Now you can just how deep i can be,
And I’ll bet you’re already running.

I just want to feel a fire again,
And direct my efforts in ways they will be well spent.
The words you said didn’t mean a thing.

I know this will only last for so long, and I’m loved more than i can know.
