Track Name: I'm Leaving
I used to claim to be the kid who'd make my family proud,
I never thought this was how i'd turn out, letting people down
Living this way at the age of eighteen
chasing just another dead end dream
i'm fighting battles with my mind
and maybe someday i'll feel okay.

But i'm sat alone at home
thinking about everything
that's changed and gone away
and i'm getting used to it

All i ever wanted was a sense of purpose,
out on the road here for better or worse,
in the back of a van with my old friends
things aren't the best but we can still pretend.

Up all night, with heavy eyes
smoking cigarettes and getting high
thinking about how i got kicked out,
i feel pretty damn alone now there's no doubt

I know i can win the battles i'm fighting
i've just finished college it's perfect timing
for me to go out and prove to you that i've got some drive and a future too.

But now i'll stay at home (in this quiet town, all alone)
and write more sad songs (all about my fucked up home)

All i ever wanted was a sense of purpose,
out on the road here for better or worse,
in the back of a van with my old friends
things aren't the best but we can still pretend.

You're the only one i've got i don't want to lose you
i know i've fucked up but somehow we'll pull through
I still wish i could be how i used to, just a little kid with some growing up to do.

I wish i still wanted to be like you but i've moved on and you should to
So this is a note to say i'm leaving
maybe someday i'll get past this feeling

But now i'll stay at home (in this quiet town, all alone)
and write more sad songs (all about my fucked up home)

You're the only one i've got i don't want to lose you
i know i've fucked up but somehow we'll pull through
And you know i'll still call at the end of each day
I'll let you know when i'm better and if i feel okay.
Track Name: Start Over
I wish we could relive
All the nights we used to spend
when you and i were friends
before we moved on with our lives

We never talk anymore
and we've gone our separate ways 
It’s obvious to me
That you don't know who i am 
and you couldn’t give a shit.

For all you know, i could be half the man that i once was.
That's all i know.

Times changed and you’ve stayed the same, i've moved on with my life, we always figured we'd be forever, smoking up on lonely nights.

But were both young, and we used to be friends, we can light up a joint and start over again. I hope someday things are back how they used to be, and were stuck out here just roaming the streets.

A were stuck out here, roaming the streets.

i’ll never forget
the times we shared last year
And the stories we would tell
And the jokes that i still hear

When i think of when
You and i were friends
before we both grew apart
And i had a change of heart

Times changed and you've stayed the same, i've moved on with my life, we always figured we'd be forever, smoking up on lonely nights

But were both young, and we used to be friends, we can light up a joint and start over again. I hope someday things are back how they used to be, and were stuck out here, just roaming the streets. (X2)

Just roaming the streets.

And we're stuck out here, just roaming the streets.
Track Name: The Last Year Got The Better of Me
The real world has hit me
And i know you cant be there for me
Every time i fall over myself and can’t pick myself back up

And i know i’ve made some stupid mistakes
and i’ve fucked up in the last year
i know i’ve changed, and things arent the same
i’m sorry i’ve become everything you hate.

I’m not gonna lie, i feel worn out, and i’m scared to go to sleep at night
And the world outside of this boring town is scaring me to death and i am sick of being a just another kid leading an average life,
I’m sorry that i didn’t fit in, until the last year got the better of me.

Up until the last year got the better of me (got the better of me, got the better of me)
and my whole world fell apart, beneath my feet. (beneath my feet)

I’m at my lowest point but i’ll come back up
And i know i’m just a kid with a streak of bad luck
But i feel worn out, and i’ve got heavy eyes
And i’ve just had the single worst year of my life

All i want to do is stay in today, i dont need anything from anybody.
I’m living through another wasted day, i dont need anything from anybody.

Honestly the last year got the better of me (got the better of me, got the better of me)
And my life has fallen beneath my feet (beneath my feet)

I’m at my lowest point but i’ll come back up
And i know i’m just a kid with a streak of bad luck
But i feel worn out, and i’ve got heavy eyes
And i’ve just had the single worst year of my life
Track Name: Kid Presentable
So many nights this year i’ve been up till 4 am, putting off sleep and thinking about you time and time again, And sometimes i feel quite guilty about it and other times i don’t, i really don’t know if it’s helping me or if this is all my fault.

I spend my days waiting for something or doing nothing at all, and most of my time is invested in waiting on the world

I just want to go back to how things were, before i made you leave
I don’t care about the here and now it was better how it used to be.

Looking back on the times that we shared it’s easy for me to see, things were better how they used to be.

And although i’m not as happy as i once was i've got all i need.

It's all that i need.

This years had its fuck ups and it has surely not been the best. But i finally got these problems off my fucking chest, i found what i was looking for and a big part of me changed, but i still feel good and i’m awake in bed, enjoying the summer rain
