Track Name: Too Late To Cry
Don’t let me kiss away your fears
They only lead to more
Don’t fall, the pain can be too strong
And you’ll never land in control

So much time is wasted on
Learning to live alone
Just when we think we’ll be OK
Our next heartbreak comes along
Don’t want to break your heart
Or use you to ease the pain

Too late to cry, too soon to regret my life
So it shouldn’t hurt this long
So strange to exist, once broken never fixed
In a world where we try so hard
Not to feel so lost alone

I can’t take when your eyes speak to me
It confuses me to feel so alive
Don’t breathe, don’t walk away from me
Let’s do our best to stop time
Don’t want to break your heart
Or use you to ease the pain

So leave me here even though I want to go
Track Name: Minnesota
Minnesota’s sleeping under a blanket of snow
Makes all the things that happened feel so long ago
My attempts at ‘I’m sorry’ haven’t done much to break the ice
And I’m almost able to breathe
It’s been hard without you
I still remember you

Maybe you’ll be better off to forget me

Minnesota’s weeping and I feel it in my bones
Hasn’t helped me get over how I used to call you home
Of all the things that I regret it’s you that hurts the most
And I’ve almost been able to sleep
So hard without you
I still remember you

Maybe you’ll be better off to forget me
Maybe you’ll be better off now that you’ve forgotten me
Track Name: Broken Dreams
Forgot how it feels to break someone’s heart
Forgot all about how much it hurts
Forgot how it feels to open up
Let someone see deep inside of me
And I can only give so much

Forgot how it feels to never know
If the next night is so long
Forgot how it feels…I don’t know

I wish I could give so much
But I guess, I’m still afraid of love

Forgot how nothing ever works out right
When you break down, a piece of you dies
Forgot how you feel all alone
When something so right feels so wrong

It’d kill me to watch you leave
With nothing but broken dreams

Wake me from this dream
Track Name: One Final Page
I love to watch things break
And wonder if, they saw it coming
I love to speak like this
‘Cause I’ve found truth is only whispered
It’s whispered

I am trying to find
One final page to write on
And I cannot describe this fear
This fear of not feeling

There’s nothing to do but break
And wonder why I never saw it coming
There’s nothing to say tonight
Even though I try I feel nothing

I love to feel this pain
To know that I still have something to say
Track Name: Vague Feeling of Dread
There’s a vague feeling of dread
As I look out my window
And I don’t know why
I feel like I’m wasting my time

Oh, I just want to hang on to something

There’s a vague feeling of peace
As I look out my window
And I don’t know why
It’s taken me by surprise

There’s a vague feeling of love
As I look out my window
And I don’t know why
It feels like it’s sweeping my away

Oh, I just want to hang on to you
