Track Name: Whatsoever
Just let this fall apart (you let this fall apart)
just like all the empty promises that seem to keep coming up

If you don't
then who will

I'll be right here doing the same things I always do
don't act so high and mighty
you've got your problems too
don't tell me you've got it all together
cause you and I both know
that's not the case at all

If you don't see your beauty
I'm sorry for your loss
I'll give you everything if everything is the cost

I'll be right here
just like you never were

Just see me eye to eye
Our first hello was our last goodbye
Cut my noose
Or watch me hang
We both ran away when that phone rang
Track Name: Crawl Space
I always wonder
If you're happy
Where you are
I never thought we'd feel
This far apart
There was nothing there
In the first place
I stared at the wall in my crawl space
Its easier to be, alone.
It's easier
To find a house,
Than to find a home

Ive burned more bridges
Than i care to say
Your name still hurts me
In so many ways
I can't even look at
Myself anymore
There are still pictures of us
On the shelf by the door

In my crawl space
I found home
I hope.

You left me here
In the cold
I can't spend another winter alone, alone.

The fog is thick
But I can see clear
It's not home
Without you here
Track Name: Bystander
Winter came sooner than
I could have thought again
Your name leaves a bitter taste
In my mouth
I won't make that mistake again
I won't be who i could have been
I won't make that mistake again
Well where are you now

Keep your hands on
The steering wheel
Open up and
Keep it real
I couldn't see through
The fog in the air
With her eyes closed I
Couldn't help but stare

I said maybe you drank too much
You told me that i think too much
I was in the passenger
Seat and even i could see
Through the window I saw a man
Clearly on his phone
You were there inside the car
I was outside all alone

Looking back you never looked forward
Doing this all to settle a score
Looking back you never looked forward
You always wanted something more
