Track Name: Weights & Measures
This is going nowhere
And we both know
That we're treading water
Afraid to let go
And if I'm being honest I don't think I can let go

I will never stop, I will never stop loving you
So stay, please stay
I will never stop, I will never stop hating you
I hate that I feel this way
This is my promise, This is my promise to you
Even if it kills me
I will never stop loving you
Loving you

We'll just keep trying to convince ourselves
We're as happy as we're pretending
If we don't admit a thing
We'll be just fine
But I'm sick of these sleepless nights
Wondering where you are and who your with
I get so stuck in my head

I will never stop, I will never stop loving you
So stay, please stay
I will never stop, I will never stop hating you
I hate that I feel this way
This is my promise, This is my promise to you
Even if it kills me

I loved you once before each calendar page
Took us further away from when this all began
It's hard to remember way back then
Maybe it's better to just forget

Well I'll let go if you just let go
But I can't keep this up for forever
Track Name: This Too Shall Pass
All my fears
Come back to haunt me
Like this voice inside my head
Telling me I'm a failure, that I'm better off dead
Self inflicted doubt crashed like a waive,
But things are never as bad as they seem inside my brain

Maybe I'm a little too far gone
I don't know
I'm not quite sure what to think
I fear everything, death and life and in between
The uncertainty frightens me

Save me, save me
I fear I am drowning, drowning
In the doubts that surround me, I need to get out
Watch me, watch me
Cause I am hiding, hiding
From the truth that scares me
Which is most every word I hear

So I'll close my eyes
And I'll cover my ears
And it all will be fine, it all will be okay

And when I hear you say
The world is a lovely place
It makes my head spin
Cause all I see is pain, and loss, and shame
I try to see past the broken pieces
To find the good underneath
But my God it seems like everything is broken, including me
Yeah I know I'm not perfect either
I've got my faults and flaws
Like the world all around
We're broken one and all

And I heard a voice say
"This too shall pass
So take a breath then put your worries to rest."

I wish it were that easy
To let go of this weight
To put it all behind me
Put on a better face
But things never seem better till they are
And soon is never soon enough for me
So I'll try and sleep

But never dream
Track Name: Keep Your Friends Close
And all those
Real friends that you used to have
Before you too cool for them
Before you got too cool to see
That your much more fake than anything
Cause I know what hides beneath
The fake smiles and fake profiles
The life that you try and hide from all those
From all those searching eyes

From all those searching eyes,
Of all your so called friends
Who buy and sell compliments
Like bonds on a trading floor
But you're always wanting more
So you strike the pose just right
And you post it on every site
Hoping they'll see

Remember those
Real friends that you used to have
Before you too cool for them
Before you got too cool to see
That your much more fake than anything
Cause I know what hides beneath
The fake smiles and fake profiles
The life that you try and hide from all those
From all those searching eyes

So take another picture
I'm not your photograph
And see how long it lasts
Before you're burned up with the past
Cause we're all waiting with baited breath
You've got me grasping for air
To see what you're gonna do next
To see how long you'll forget
All your old friends who are more real than you'll ever be

Real friends that you used to have
Before you too cool for them
Before you got too cool to see
That your much more fake than anything
Cause I know what hides beneath
The fake smiles and fake profiles
The life that you try and hide from all those
From all those searching eyes

Sincerity is more flattering than all your posturing could ever be
Do you remember,
The times we had both good and bad
They're gone forever
And they're not coming back
Sincerity is more flattering than all your posturing could ever be
Real people, real life
That's all I ask for

Everything you say is fake like you
And I heard enough and I think I'm through
I think I, I think I'm done with you
(Don't come back, don't come back anymore)
And all your new friends could never be
As close to you, as you were to me
I hope they, I hope they make you happy
Cause I won't

I think I'm done with you
