Track Name: Scattered
Suppose I said that we were never really winning
That our love had hit the ceiling before the skies were ours
Suppose I put my hand on the small of your back
Goosebumps and shivers could be common a happenstance

Now our clothes are off, scattered on the floor
I have never felt, quite this way before
Now my clothes are off, and her skin is warm
I will never know, how she feels like home

Its 3am and I'm never gonna get to sleep
Thoughts of you are creeping in, because I'm seeing you next week
But I guess we knew this was always the risk we'd take
But its funny how all movie stars with drawn on scars make it look so fake

Now our clothes are off, scattered on the floor
I have never felt, quite this way before
Now my clothes are off, and her skin is warm
I will never know, how she feels like home

She feels like home, home i used to know
And now its all too real
She feels like home, home i used to know
And now its all too real

Now our clothes are off, scattered on the floorI
have never felt, quite this way before
Now my clothes are off, and her skin is warm
I will never know, how she feels like home
Track Name: Gone From Here
You weren't there at midnight, this New Year's eve
Had your head down on your toilet seat instead of there with me
I thought the day would never come when I was weak and you would run
But now its here
And its funny how all my best songs are about the times that I'm alone
Like this time now you're gone from here

Though a start must have an end, this is not the end
We are so incredibly young, who are we to say its over?
I thought the day would never come when I was weak and you would run
But now its here
And its funny how all my best songs are about the times that I'm alone
Like this time now you're gone from here

This town is home
Just like it's always been
Maybe this time next summer or spring we'll be good
But for now, you are gone from here
This town is home
Just like it's always been
Maybe this time next summer or spring we'll be good
But for now, you are gone from here
yes for now, you are gone
Maybe somehow you'll come back
To me
Track Name: Blue Eyes
I put my hands around her waist earlier today
Her eyes lit up like only she can in that way
I found her hairs on my sheets, and now I can see one on my jeans
She wore my hat like she didn't know, its summer time and it won't snow

All I've ever known is gone and wasted
Because when she came along she went and changed the rules
So now I'm feeling high, like I've got something inside
And I don't wanna change it, I don't wanna lose her

When she's here, I know I'm not living in the real world
When I'm there I never really get the girl
She knocked down my tv, whilst we were drinking green tea
She came to see me play a show, i think I'll take her on the road with me one day

All I've ever known is gone and wasted
Because when she came along she went and changed the rules
So now I'm feeling high, like I've got something inside
And I don't wanna change it, I don't wanna lose her
All I've ever known is gone and wasted
Because when she came along she went and changed the rules
So now I'm feeling high, like I've got something inside
And I don't wanna change it, I don't wanna lose her

When you're lost, you can still find love
Though it's not quite there, its not far off
I can't think, every time I speak
Of the words to say, that could make you stay

All I've ever known is gone and wasted
Because when she came along she went and changed the rules
So now I'm feeling high, like I've got something inside
And I don't wanna change it, I don't wanna lose her
Track Name: Risks
I'll be thinking about you all this summer
Now you're on your train back to your loved ones
And I, swear I'll miss you
Though I can't explain the things that happened
I've been left confused and somewhat maddened by you
And the lack of you here

You should stay here, you know I am a risk worth taking
There's not a single feeling I am faking
I know I am better than him for you
I don't, want to be the guy who breaks you
But if it means that I can then take you, and make you mine
I will

You should stay here, you know I am a risk worth taking
There's not a single feeling I am faking
I know I am better than him for you
I don't, want to be the guy who breaks you
I've got a feeling I can take you, and make you happier
Than he really ever could

You kissed me first on the log flume ride
Then we bumped our heads at the end of the slide
Your hair was all in my face in the picture
Now my sleepless nights are not the same,
I've got my fan on high without your complaints
Although I honestly preferred it with them

You should be who you want, and see who you like
And you like me

Tell me what you want from me,
because I'm ready to give you everything

I know how it feels to be in this place
Being so in love when it feels like a mistake
But I think I can fill his shoes
Track Name: Way Back Home
Retrace my steps through the woods,
Lost my way when I left the path
Will I ever know where I am or where I've been?
Or will I see my friends' faces again?
Because the world is getting colder all the skies are getting darker
And the checkered shirt that I'm wearing is so thin
The rations that I brought lasted me the first two nights
And the people that I saw, didn't hear my screams
My mind is playing tricks with the shadows in the trees
Whilst my hands are shaking around my gun
Perhaps the end is close, but if it was me and I had a choice
I'd be back home with you in my arms

A little further this way, and I will find my way home
A little further that way, and I will never come back
I have never been this afraid, or felt quite this alone
So I will find my way, find my way back home

The chequers on my shirt are all tearing into one
And the denim on my jeans is stained from all the blood
There are tears in my eyes they show the feelings that I have inside
Death is never meant to come this soon
If I was given one more chance to go back and change my life
I think I'd make you my wife and go live in the city
Its funny how it's in these times, they can make you all feel dead inside
but realise the preciousness of life
Sad that its too late, will they find my body or won't they wait
There'll be a picture of us against my chest

A little further this way, and I will find my way home
A little further that way, and I will never come back
I have never been this afraid, or felt quite this alone
So I will find my way, find my way back home
Track Name: Napkin
I've never felt this bad before
Oh my heart is on a coaster and you're the napkin that can soak up all that's wrong
There's no one else that I could call
But if there was I couldn't promise them that I would even ever call at all
Because I'd be calling you

So I'll stay here, stay here until I feel okay
And though it may take all night, and maybe its not right I don't care

Try to catch the bus over to yours
But the service is so inconsistent that I knew from the beginning I would have to walk
So I clear my mind with the cold air
and when I get to yours my cheeks are pink
and my hands so cold I can't feel yours

I can rely on you to make me laugh
When I'm feeling so dead inside
Don't think you'd blame me if I didn't want you to ask

So I'll stay here, stay here until I feel okay
And though it may take all night, and maybe its not right I don't care

Will we ever get to see, ever get to be what we want to be
what we want to say what we want to do here?
And will we ever get to know what we want know, what we want to say
what we want to make, what we want to make here

So I'll stay here, stay here until I feel okay
And though it may take all night, and maybe its not right I don't care
Track Name: Forever for the Second Time (2008)
I see her crying tears of joy, such a shame we couldn't reach that stage on our own
It was far too far to go
I see her smiling smiles of hope, with happiness and everything inbetween,
not a set of my billboard dreams

He's twice the man I'll ever be,
Double what she saw in me,
So I'm happy with your new found glory,
You know that its just a case of mistaken identity

I see them walking hand in hand, got a five pound note and my guitar left in mine
'Cos you know I couldn't do for you,
all the things he promised that he would do, but you know all my lyrics go on you

He's twice the man I'll ever be,
He's double what she saw in me,
So I'm happy with your new found glory,
You know that its just a case of mistaken identity

Black suit, black tie, white shirt, you know why
We died today
Two years have gone by, with no thought as to why, 'cos we died today
we died today

He's twice the man I'll ever be,
Double what she saw in me,
So I'm happy with your new found glory,
You know that its just a case of mistaken identity
Case of mistaken identity
Case of mistaken identity
