Three fifteen, new morning And I’ve only said goodnight You called my phone, no one’s home I think you thought that I was gone But I’m alright, I’m okay It was just one of those days Baby I know Sometimes it’s hard to tell But I think you know by now I am just a little confused And though I may get down I think you know by now I couldn’t ever leave you Walking round, upside down Turning wheels inside my head Lost control, found my soul Guess it’s not as bad as I said Say goodbye, say hello Some things come, some things go Baby I know Some days I’m not that well But I think you know by now I am just a little abused And though it’s hard to tell I think you know by now I couldn’t ever leave you
I don’t know why I’m down, thought I’d be okay If only I found a boy like you Can’t figure it out, I’m barely breathing Even though I have a boy like you I’m sick of myself, guess I’m just broken Seems there’s nothing to help a girl like me I see in your eyes that you feel helpless But there’s no use to try with a girl like me I have tried to survive in my mind But every night it just gets harder And I could lie and say I’m gonna be fine But I think you know that it’s over You’ve told me before that I was pretty Now that I’ve lost control, what do you see? I don’t know why you think you love me ‘Cause I’m such a mess and you’re so damn clean I used to be so clean This time love can’t bring me back This time love, you can’t bring me back
Run Away 05:34
Stranger, you’re perfect As far as I can tell Would you like to go somewhere to forget how life can hurt like hell Let’s save the introductions ‘Cause the sun is already heading west We’re too young to feel helpless This might be the last chance we get We’ll run, run away Drive until daybreak, yea we’ll get out of this place Life’s a hard road with no one to blame But we’ll pick up the pieces we’ve lost along the way We’ll live along a river With a valley to ourselves We’ll build a world for dreamers Just like God once tried himself Stranger, I need you with me And I don’t even know your name Let’s not tell our stories There’s no need, ‘cause life hurts the same
The sun slowly melts away Disappears beneath the water You feel further away With each and every tomorrow If only time would Go backwards things might get better If only we could Have stayed perfect and young forever We’d still be happy just holding hands I’d still have the best thing I ever had After all these years, I’m still thinking of you I’ve finally figured out, I should have waited for you It’s so hard to go on, when I’ve realized I’ve been in love Ever since you I still read what you wrote to me I somehow knew it’d be your last letter I never would have thought to leave If I knew love’s not the same when you’re older Sometimes I see you in the faces of strangers For a moment forgetting how I lost my angel Ever since you I’ve been falling backwards Letting go of love Ever since you I’ve lost my grip And I wish I could reach back to you
Sweet deliverance From a pillow and a bottle of pills Striking a balance Between what is perfect And what is perfectly real Could this all be a dream? I can’t imagine you with another Maybe I don’t want to know But you are just like any other That my heart needs to let go And I’m haunted by the feeling That I need to get away But love gets in the way, child And I can’t say goodbye to you I could run down to Carolina now Charlotte knows me well by name But they’re devoted to their sunshine darling And you know I love the rain And I think that you could love me Though I know you’ll never change I probably should let you go and start again
Over Again 04:43
How long will love last now Until it’s over again I watched you walk on by And tears came to my eyes Never thought I’d feel this way When I see you I want to think This is maybe worth a chance But I really can’t say I held on to you tight And you kissed me goodnight Then you left me here alone And I hope that when tomorrow comes You’ll come around again But I really don’t know
Walking alone I never knew that summer could feel so cold Does anyone notice me at all? I never knew that I’d feel so small on my own I’m screaming on the inside ‘Cause it’s the only place I’m heard If anybody sees me, could you look me in the eye? I need someone to touch me so I know that I’m alive This world’s too big to be outside looking in Curled up in coffee shop Writing about things that break my heart Like seeing two lovers meet And how they can speak without saying a thing While I’m screaming on the inside I’m just dying to be heard I go outside and just breathe in The silence is so loud I think it’s gonna win I’m tired of thinking about life I only want someone to be here when I turn out the lights I’m screaming on the inside Tonight I might just scream myself to sleep Will someone pull me in?
