Track Name: Live and Let Go
Verse:
Is this normal
Should I feel like someone else's problem
As I'm staring out my window watching every weekend pass me by
It still hurts me just the same
And though I'm older I think sometimes
Why you'd ever want to run away

Chorus:
If being happy was easy I'd be fine
If I choice to catch my dreams you'd say I lost my mind along the way
But thats ok cause growing up is hard to do
It might have been much easier without you

Verse 2:
I never thought it possible to take away the joy instilled in me
From a loving mother, the only one who was there for me
I still try to find the memories that don't exist at all
I'm sure you see me like before, I'm not concerned
I'm not trying to impress you anymore

Bridge:
Sometimes I ponder around broken picture fames
Even when I see your face I still don't even know your name
You can't try to say I never let you in
You can't even say you ever gave a damn
You never tried to let me be your son
And sadly I'm not the only one
And sadly I'm not the only one
Track Name: Wait For You
Verse:
As I sit across the country
It's been decades since we spoke
Since the time you shut me out
Since the day I let you go
Should I procrastinate, compensate
I'm trying hard to make myself known
Should I cast the first stone?
Into a pool of thought untouched by you and I
Why couldn't you love me for the son I tried to be
Now I sit here looking back
I gave you everything and got nothing at all

Chorus:
Well it's hard
To push past the hurt, past the pain
But regardless I still grew into a person unlike you
And through the years I've tried to let it go
I said all of my goodbyes at the age of fifteen
If I sat around to wait for you
My life would pass me by
And I'd still have nothing at all
Nothing at all

Verse 2:
If I walked across the country and spoke of what I lack
Would you let me in or simply turn your back?
I still wrote to you for years
Little notes every now and then
To express the love I always had
Was it hard to see?
I only wanted to make you proud and everything I did, I did for you
Now you're getting on in age
And if you pass I still have nothing at all

Bridge:
It was always me
Trying to play your games
I'm sorry I couldn't be a man
I'm sorry I couldn't be a man
I was just a young boy fighting for your love
But I never had a chance
I never had a chance
Track Name: What You Wanted
Verse:
I wish I was thinking straight at the age of seventeen
I wish I told you what you mean to me
I wish I didn't take you for granted
And now you're gone
But certainly not forgotten
If I could have it any other way
I'd make sure you hear me say

Chorus:
Do you know the impact that you had on me (Had on me)
Do you know that you're the reason I still live and breathe
Well don't you think that I'll forget your name (Forget your name)
Don't you think I'll ever look up at the sky and feel the same (Feel the same)
Because if I had a second chance
I'd say take my hand
And don't let go

Verse:
You gave me everything I needed without question
A place to lay my head at night
A home to call my own
And now you're gone
But certainly not forgotten
I still play the guitar you gave to me
Because you believed in the dream I now pursue
And it's all because of you

Chorus:
Do you know the impact that you had on me
Do you know that you're the reason I still live and breathe
Well don't you think I'll forget your name
Don't you think I'll ever look up at the sky and feel the same
Because if I had a second chance
I'd say take my hand
And don't let go

Bridge:
If only you could see me now
I know you'd be so proud
To see that I gave up my self destructive ways
If only you could hear me now
I'd repeat the words you said to me
You told me that I'd make it out ok
It's because of you that I still live and breathe today
You told me that I'd make it out
You told me one day I'd make it out ok
Track Name: Tell Them They're Wrong
Verse:
Are you even listening to me
I'll ask you once, I'll ask you twice
Are you still unsure after all these years
I've seen the dreams that you have
It's a beautiful thing
And it's tearing me apart inside

Pre Chorus:
To know how fragile our hearts can be
Well it's hard to stay strong
When you're told that your wrong to believe

Chorus:
Don't you dare say you're wasting your time
By not falling in line from the start
Your dreams aren't a backup plan
No matter what they say
(Just tune it out)
Cause I won't believe
You're really happy until you scream out
I don't want to be here at all

Verse 2:
Pacing your room you don't know where to go
Or who to be
I try to tell you you're fine
But you won't listen to me
I've held your hand for all these years
If you choose to let go
I just hope that you know
That you aren't wrong to believe

Bridge:
Take a step back
See what comes to you
Don't you see that you'll never be happy again
Please tell them they're wrong

Outro:
Don't you dare say
It's a waste of your time
Don't you dare say
This world will leave you behind
Don't you dare say
You'll find the time another day
Don't you dare say
Don't you dare say
Please tell them they're wrong
Track Name: I'm Doing My Best
Verse:
It's about time I gain a new perspective
Because my darkest days long gone
I'm able to breathe seven years later
(I've never felt so alive)
I'm getting better at moving on

Bridge:
And I'm finally out in the sun, out in the sun
Why should I look back?
I'm out in the sun and I plan to make the best of it

Chorus:
I might not be all smiles for now
But that's ok
I'll take it one step at a time
It's a fine line to say
I'm making the best of it
But that's ok
I can say I'm doing my best
I'm doing my best
To let it go

Verse 2:
I know I can't get by
Pushing everyone to the side
But maybe I'd rather bottle this up
Chalk it up to being fine for one more day
I could always take my time
(Or you can keep pressing me to explode)
Until I scream out
I'm sick of all these expectations

Transition:
I thought it'd be easier
Just to hide away and never say a word
About what I need to feel whole
But all I learned was
Being alone isn't something I'll ever need
But all I learned was
Being alone isn't something I'll ever need
Now I know that (Whoa)
Being alone isn't something I'll ever need
Now I know that (Whoa)
Being alone isn't something I'll ever need
And that's good enough for me
Track Name: These Terrible Hands
Verse:
I look down at my hands from time to time
I sometimes wish I'd leave this life behind
I fear my self loathing will swallow me whole
If these insecurities won't leave me alone
But that all changed when you walked across the room
You make me feel like I've never felt before
Is it wrong if I want more?
Something more to hold on to

Chorus:
Maybe it's my time
Maybe it's my chance to fall in love
To be happy for once in my life
You look at me in a way that no one's looked at me before
Is it wrong if I want more
Maybe its my, maybe its my time
To fall in love

Verse 2:
These terrible hands, always in my way
I feel like a lost cause cast and a stray
But your voice reassures me that one day I'll be fine
Maybe one day I'll roll up these sleeves
Maybe one day I'll leave these fears behind
Sure you have your flaws and I have mine
But if I take your hands and you take mine
We can push past our insecurities
We'll finally give ourselves some room to breathe

Outro:
These terrible hands, always in my way
But should I let that define me or make a change today?
Well your voice reassures me that one day I'll be fine
So I'll roll up these sleeves and take your hand in mine
