Track Name: Always Have A Backup Plan
Don't let me make these choices
I'll never know what's right
my heart is breaking for you
so speak these words they're the truth

I know you've given it all and you said
you'd fall if all of this didn't end
you know I've tried for way too long
and now you have to be strong on your own

I can't hold you up anymore
things aren't the same as they were before
and I'm trying
I know I tried for you
just think of where we'll be when this is all through

you played it safe
I played it simple
your life is a waste
my life is a symbol of
the fact, that if we take a stand
we'll never need the use of a backup plan

Don't let me make these choices
I'll never know what's right
my heart is breaking for you
so speak these words they're the truth

You know I've given my all
You said if this didn't end you'd fall

You know I've tried for way too long
and now I have to be strong on my own
If you feel you've tried for way too long
you know you have to be strong
Track Name: Lost
Let's be honest
You haven't told me everything I need to know

Like why you weren't here
And why you didn't care
Tell me where do you go

Cause I've been trying way too long
To wear this mask and act so strong
And it's wrong
That you can tear it apart
As I try to find my way alone

This sinking feeling in my chest
It will always be here
Like the rest of the lies
I'll severe ties and hope I'm not wrong

I can conquer this, you'll live with this
For the rest of your life
So take it from me when I tell you that you'll survive

You're gone
I'll never find
The truth to ease my trouble mind
Forgive me my ignorance
How can you disappear with no consequence
I'm sure sure you have some poor excuse
To blame it all on us, but that's old news
I can't forgive the things you've done
You'll never know what I've become

This sinking feeling in my chest
It will always be here
Like the rest of the lies
I'll severe ties and hope I'm not wrong

I can conquer this, you'll live with this
For the rest of your life
So take it from me when I tell you that you'll survive

I've waited so long to meet a faceless man
I've never given up on who I am

How dare you tell me
Just what I need to do
I've never needed him
I've never needed you
I know I've built this with my own two hands
So hear you me, I know who I am

This sinking feeling in my chest
It will always be here
Like the rest of the lies
I'll severe ties and hope I'm not wrong

I can conquer this, you'll live with this
For the rest of your life
So take it from me when I tell you that you'll survive
Track Name: 806 To Skowhegan
My eyes open wide
I'm stuck on you

My heart stops
heart drops
I always knew

unfailing
I'm sailing
will we hold true?

Every thought of this
gets me through

I'm searching
for something
like a feather to my wind
I hold tight
try to think of everything

my heart aches for this
I know I need it
can you believe this?
Have you seen this?
I know you feel this.
I know you're with me.
and you won't ever leave.

I know I'm not alone

I know I'm not alone
I have a place called home
It's with you
no matter where you'll be

I know you'll be right here for me

So hold tight and take a deep breathe
cause we're not over yet

I never thought I had a chance
(To find out what it means to understand)
So bring me your love, if you can
(my heart beats, your heart beats)

I see you, I hear you now
clearer than ever before

The world stops without you
my world stops without you

You're not alone
You have a home
I'll carry you through

You will never be alone
You're coming home tonight

I've tried for too damn long
to give you your own song
I'll hold my breath,
I'll hold my breath for you

Through all the re-writes
and failed tries
I stuck to you
and held to the hope
that you'd love me too

You'll never be alone
The world stops without you
you'll never be alone
and when your down and broken
I'll carry you home

You will never be alone
you're coming home tonight
Track Name: Highway Lines
If everywhere I go I see
The same things in front of me
My hearts not in this anymore
I don't mean to start this

I'm sorry I've tried
To let this one go
I've taken my time
I hope that you know
I'm sorry I've let you down

But I know that you would stay
If I told you that I need
A second for me to breath
Blind with rage I'll see
No way out for me

I'll give up
Stop fighting for a cause
Believe that I was wrong
And move on
Move on
Like it's all that I know

Cause I told you that I need
A second for me to breath
Blind with rage I'll see
No way out for me

I know I told you that I need
A second, but you pushed me
With no solution I'll start
I'll start again
Track Name: My Holiday
I've been holding forever
for my holiday
the future awaits us
so lets make our way
together

only time will tell
at least that's what I have to tell myself
to make it through this one

So hold me back
don't let me go
if we don't try
well never know

keep a calm head
steady hands will follow

So I'll keep my head up high
hope for the best
and look you right in the eye
and get this off my chest

the truth is I need you here
and nothing less

every minute
and every second
I've waiting for too long
to ever regret this

I'm dreading the day
that you move away

just know that you'll never be

Alone
Alone

is the last thing
id like to say to you

with everything we've been through
you're still my holiday

So I'll keep my head up high
hope for the best
and look you right in the eye
and get this off my chest

the truth is I need you here
and nothing less
Track Name: Upon Waking Up (Ft. Jerry Roush)
After everything all you are is a weight on a scale
and at your darkest on your last breath
what will you whisper? Who will be there to hear?

We are bad men dressed up as suitors
burden on our shoulders
the weight of the guilt tipping the scales

Who are you? What do you stand for?
When this foundation crumbles who will support the weight?

When at your darkest look to your brothers
we'll pull you out of hell
understand we've never been here before
(You'll never make it if you never try)
we can do this
this love will never die

This love will never die

Lets tip the scales in our direction
with you at my side we have purpose, no question
you know they don't, I know we won't
ever concede to their preconception

Don't hold your breath
you've nothing waiting
you gave it away now you're shaking and fading
I've reached my hand out to save you from your fears
just so you know I am always here

When at your darkest look to your brothers
we'll pull you out of hell
understand we've never been here before
we can do this
this love will never die

When at your darkest look to your brothers
we'll pull you out of hell
understand we've never been here before
(You'll never make it if you never try)
we can do this
this love will never die
Track Name: Tradewinds
Why is lifes biggest changes happen without a warning?
Was I holding you back?
Or were you never there to begin?

Don't turn your back on me
does it look I'm finished yet
In hindsight I'm so amazed
with how you're not full of regret

I've spent so much time thinking about this
you could have your own degree
when everyday I'd wait by the phone
just to know that you're not there for me

Tell me now
Tell me now
was it all worth it?
(Was wearing a mask worth losing your family)
to single handedly tear it apart
(To cause the mess you made is a work of art)

So take the moments that we share
and don't you dare ever forget
that every second we were here
is a second I regret

Tell me now
Tell me now
was it all worth it?
(Was wearing a mask worth losing your family)
to single handedly tear it apart
(To cause the mess you made is a work of art)

I take back what I said
there's not a thing that I regret
and when you're crawling back to me
I will forgive but never forget
because of every mistake we made
I'm now the man you see today
and when I'm standing on this stage
this is me and my family
