REVERIE

ON THE MEND

I used to know what life was like before you

But I can only see a shade of what I used to be

Your memory may fail you

But It serves me well

And when I do exhale you

Is when I find myself

On and on we hide the truth

On and on decide to lose

On and on we lie to prove

That nothing else can save me from you

I saw the ship go down

I waited as it washed ashore

Delivered me from myself

To feel what I had lost before

Your reveries unveil you

In the truths you sell

Does it ever get better

Only time will tell

On and on we hide the truth

On and on decide to lose

On and on we lie to prove

That nothing else can save me from you

Before I write myself into final decimation

I’ll retrace this life under sober empty skies

Sober empty skies

NOT THE ONE

It's never enough
And I don't need to pretend
What is learned from love
Is all it's ever worth in the end
Cause in my mind
The cowardice words you command
Hold no water to speak of
And I'm not losing sleep over it

But if I knew what you really wanted
I'd stay back before you'd come around 
And start a war again

Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe
Victimized as you criticize
Every fucking thing that I say
And all the life I’ve wasted
On hoping you’d change your mind        
But not this time
Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe

So do your worst
It’s nothing I haven’t heard before
And I’ll be the first
To say I won’t take anymore    
Had me believe that a diamond cuts deeper than apathy
But In the rough, I could honestly see it was actually
A forlorn tragedy

If I knew what you really wanted
I’d stay back before you’d come around
And start a war again

Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe
Victimized as you criticize
Every fucking thing that I say
And all the life I’ve wasted
On hoping you’d change your mind        
But not this time
Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe

You’re never wrong when you’ve gone too far
Thinking you have a one-wayward heart
So carry on, take all that you’ve got
And save me the cost

Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe
Victimized as you criticize
Every fucking thing that I say

Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe
Victimized as you criticize
Every fucking thing that I say
And all the life I’ve wasted
On hoping you’d change your mind        
But not this time
Face to face, don’t you look away
You are not the one I want, babe

You fall out like you're mystified by every word
Right now like a secret never left unheard
The silence fades, you do it again
You're so unafraid to lose a friend
In time, I could carry all the weight of your world
But it's my resolution to be unconcerned
Cause in this life we care too much
To get it right, I'm not your crutch

So if it's alright with you, I'll just go
It's not like you ever really needed more
Than a heart you can beat until it begs you for mercy
Then it's onto the next one

So take this in any way you want
I'm not fucking with you
I'll make the message clear as day
It's never been so easy to just walk away
And I've got enough on my mind
Without suffering through another white lie
It's clear as day
That it's never been so easy to just walk away

And hurt it will show
When hate fails to hold
When hope is so bitter
Like blood on your tongue
You'll then ask yourself
What have I become

So if it's a fight that you want, let's go
It's not like we haven't been here before
With your heart on your sleeve
While you're begging, "just don't leave"
Then it's onto the next one

So take this in any way you want
I'm not fucking with you
I'll make the message clear as day
It's never been so easy to just walk away
And I've got enough on my mind
Without suffering through another white lie
It's clear as day
That it's never been so easy to just walk away

So take this in any way you want
It's never been so easy to just walk away
And I've got enough on my mind
It's never been so easy to just walk away

So take this in any way you want
I'm not fucking with you
I'll make the message clear as day
It's never been so easy to just walk away
And I've got enough on my mind
Without suffering through another white lie
It's clear as day
That it's never been so easy to just walk away

Just walk away

ANOTHER WHITE LIE

I'm on the mend
Cause somebody left
Tired and nervous been waiting too long
To say what I meant

You'll reap what you sow
If you don't let go
The high rising truth
Like tears in your eyes
Will finally show

But how can I sleep
With a head like this
I grieve in black and white
While your colors still run dry

Before I write myself
Into final decimation
I'll retrace this life under sober empty skies

Sober empty skies

So this is the end
Of all my intent
To take life for granted like some kind of fool
I'll follow you never again

So wait on the edge
It's all in your hands
Remember your father and his just before
We've all made mistakes
And there will be more

There will be more

Before I write myself
Into final decimation
I'll retrace this life under sober empty skies

Sober empty skies

Before I write myself
Into final decimation
I'll retrace this life under sober empty skies

Before I write myself
Into final decimation
I'll retrace this life under sober empty skies

Sober empty skies

YOU AND ME NOW

How do I begin to understand you
I feel lost and out of air to breathe
And if I could comprehend what you've been through
I'd see the world through eyes adept in deceit

It's you and me now on the rebound out
And you say
You love me now you won't leave out loud
I know you're only trying to spare me the pain somehow
It's you and me now on the rebound out

You say I'm a mess, you say I'm selfish
But all I ever wanted was your love
And still we try when all feels helpless
I guess that I was never enough

It's you and me now on the rebound out

And you say

You love me now you won't leave out loud

I know you're only trying to spare me the pain somehow

It's you and me now on the rebound out

Another moment
Another moment
Another moment
All I've asked of you
Another moment
Another moment
Another moment
There's nothing left to do

It's you and me now on the rebound out

And you say

You love me now you won't leave out loud

I know you're only trying to spare me the pain somehow

It's you and me now on the rebound out

Rebound out

NOTHING TO YOU

I’ve faced the fact that I’ll never mean anything more to you

Buried deep with the memory of your face

It’s over now but I won’t get out before I lose

It’s not the first time that I didn’t get my way

I took a drive to the corner store like I did the last time

Spent my last fifteen on a nicotine antidote

I forget why but whenever I tried to apologize

You had a look that said, “I don’t want to be alone tonight”

And she said

Will you still love me

When I am far away I said, yes of course I will

And It’s moments like these

That I’ll always remember

Cause they meant that much to me

And clearly meant nothing to you

Will you still love me

When I am far away I said, yes of course I will

And It’s moments like these

That I’ll always remember

Cause they meant that much to me

And clearly meant nothing to you

STAY (FEAT. CLARA ADELAIDE)

Are you awake was I too loud
Are you warm enough
You won't even look at me
Can you tell me why
The door was open I walked in
Thought I woke you up
Where is all this coming from
I hate to see you cry

But I'm not a criminal
Let's just say I'm cynical
So we can agree to disagree
I mean literally
How would I benefit

When it's so fucking evident
That I'd never lie to you
Even if I had time to

Stay
It wasn't enough to stay
You were always afraid
Of all the things you became

You set it up to watch me fall
I considered you my friend
Now you don't even care for me
Enough to make this right
So close the door on all our dreams
And never hurt again
Or you can just start making sense
And never wonder why

Trust is difficult
More like hypocritical
For me to believe that I could be
Unconditionally loved
When you're on the mend
And so lost in all you cannot change
For the greater part of five years wasted

Stay
(And I cannot get back that time)
It wasn't enough to stay
(Give me a reason I should try)
You were always afraid
(And I can't find the words to say)
Of all the things you became
(To get us through this and I know it's best to walk away)

And we both ask for too much now
Don't leave me, never leave me
But I no longer see a way out
And I must let you down

Stay
It wasn't enough to stay
You were always afraid
Of all the things you became

START OVER

What's easy on the eyes
Weighs heavy on the heart
Not to my own surprise
It's been you from the start
But I felt it when you'd fall
Therein everything I love
And I'll be there when you call

Oh, at least I can say I tried
To make it right when all that I've done
Until now is lie
To you and to myself

And I won't forget what I told her
It feels like the stars collide when I hold her
But as you take the time
For you and yourself
It never occurs you may be hurting someone else
So I think it's time we start over

This point of no return
Don't know when, nor how or why
But it's the only way we learn
To understand it time

I know that it won't make things right
To say you're sorry
And for what it's worth I am
For you and for myself

And I won't forget what I told her
It feels like the stars collide when I hold her
But as you take the time
For you and yourself
It never occurs you may be hurting someone else
So I think it's time we start over

And I'd choke fire just to breathe you in
But you would never put me out
So tell me where should I begin
Should I begin

And I won't forget what I told her
It feels like the stars collide when I hold her
But as you take the time
For you and yourself
It never occurs you may be hurting someone else
So I think it's time we start over

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

I’d give my life for you
If you’d like me to
All I’m trying to say is I can’t live without you
Is it wrong for me to say
Oh, that I feel this way
And every night since we met, I lie awake

But still I feel
Like I don’t belong
Nothing is real
When nothing is wrong
So how can I know it’s right
Before it’s gone

And you’re lonely cause you’ve always
Been running from yourself and I’m still here
So if only you could stop holding
Onto someone else you’d see it so clear
I’m the one who’s good to you
Standing back from what you do
Take the time to recognize
And realize that I need you
You’re lonely
But you’re not alone

I gamble with paradise
And she just rolls her eyes
Needless to say, I know
I should take my own advice
You help me to understand love and I listen
With each and every word you’ve said, I am smitten
Your voice is a waveform forever imprinted
In me like a melody I wish I’d written

But still I feel
Like I don’t belong
Nothing is real
When nothing is wrong
So how can I know it’s right
Before it’s gone

And you’re lonely cause you’ve always
Been running from yourself and I’m still here
So if only you could stop holding
Onto someone else you’d see it so clear
I’m the one who’s good to you
Standing back from what you do
Take the time to recognize
And realize that I need you
You’re lonely
But you’re not alone

And I feel like I’ve wasted my time
Got every reason to leave this behind
But I know the truth will never undo
The way I still love you

And you’re lonely cause you’ve always
Been running from yourself and I’m still here
So if only you could stop holding
Onto someone else you’d see it so clear
I’m the one who’s good to you
Standing back from what you do
Take the time to recognize
And realize that I need you
You’re lonely
But you’re not alone

DOES IT MAKE YOU HAPPY

We sway into the open room
With your eyes locked on the doorframe
You whisper that it’d be here soon
Now me, myself and I
Have got a lot of shit to go through
But I’ve always had a one track mind

Yeah, you take it to heart now you don’t
You don’t know what you want
You take it to heart now you don’t
You don’t know what you want

And I feel it
Just like an endless dream I long to nullify
I’m bleeding
You’re unaffected inside this space I can’t define
I’ve waited
And all the while I can only see you in the light
That I want you to see me
And does it make you happy

Crossfaded in the afternoon
She dials it back for the evening
She’s never been afraid to lose
Cause she’s already lost it all
And maybe it’s time to fall back
Back into the atmosphere another day

But you take it to heart now you don’t
You don’t know what you want
You take it to heart now you don’t
You don’t know what you want

And I feel it
Just like an endless dream I long to nullify
I’m bleeding
You’re unaffected inside this space I can’t define
I’ve waited
And all the while I can only see you in the light
That I want you to see me
And does it make you happy

I’ll never be enough for you
Unless I give it all up for you
I’ll never be enough for you
Unless I give it all up for you

So I’ll give it time
I’ll let it go
Want you in my arms, forevermore
It’s killing me
To see you leave
Each time more than before

And I feel it
Just like an endless dream I long to nullify
I’m bleeding
You’re unaffected inside this space I can’t define
I’ve waited
And all the while I can only see you in the light
That I want you to see me
And does it make you happy

LEAVE LOVE OUT OF IT

It's just another dream
But I'm drawn to the signals
Like Autumn red leaves
You're a fallen angel
Taking me down with you
And I feel it in my lungs
Every time I wish to breathe you
Like I'm going up
In flames just beneath you
Thinking we found our youth

And the hardest part of letting go
Is never wanting you to know
I had to give it all up just to see the faults
In my thoughts when I'm alone
That your heart cannot atone
For love is not enough sometimes
To right another wrong

So leave love out of it
Leave love out of it
Leave love out of it and be proud of it
Leave love out of it
Leave love out of it
Leave love out of it and be proud
To say the things you're afraid to when I'm around
And be damn sure you'll make it count

It's never what it seems
And under no condition
Do I know what it means
To be in your position
Most of all, that is true
But don't get me wrong
It takes a lot out of me
To do this alone
And I know there's got to be a way
To see it through with you

And the hardest part of letting go
Is never wanting you to know
I had to give it all up just to see the faults
In my thoughts when I'm alone
That your heart cannot atone
For love is not enough sometimes
To right another wrong

So leave love out of it
Leave love out of it
Leave love out of it and be proud of it
Leave love out of it
Leave love out of it
Leave love out of it and be proud
To say the things you're afraid to when I'm around
And be damn sure you'll make it count
