Track Name: This Will Kill Me Faster Than Cigarettes
It's that time of year again,
Where my room gets cold and the skies turn grey.
Go through old boxes, look at pictures of back then,
Read all the letters that I wrote last May.
As the day grows cold, this awkward silence bold,
Look where we are, now you're gone.
As sunset steals day, you sent me on my way.
Tonight the streetlights didn't turn on.

My friends think I'm suicidal, but I say it's just my thoughts.
I write these songs to explain my mind, but I can never get my point across.

How can I kill myself and make sure that she still knows I love her?
I need her around, but I can't promise her forever.
This is something I can't explain, and I'm sorry.
I'm starting to think that this sadness is killing me.
Track Name: Greenwood
Don't come home. Stay in Ohio,
where you're far enough for me to fall asleep on my own.
As soon as you landed, I felt and addicting substance back in my veins.
and the wind blowing harder to slide through your hair from across your face.

And God knows there's nothing I hate more than the Chicago winters
and being sick.

The world is separated in color schemes,
but you're a cross of black and grey.
And you're taking all my warmth away.
All I want from you is to stand there
and watch how crippling you are for me.

Don't come back here. This isn't the first time you try to bring me down.
But I won't let you take me back down.
And this won't go away
because it's easier for me to blame you for being stupid and heartless
than it is for me to blame myself for being selfish and spineless.

You may not be as bad as you seem, but you'll always be the clouds in the sky to me.

The world is separated in color schemes,
but you're a cross of black and grey.
And you're taking all my warmth away.
All I want from you is to stand there
and watch how crippling you are for me.

I'll be the rocks you kick across your campus.
I'll be the power outage you won't notice
because you were too busy sleeping.
Track Name: Letters To Loved Ones
I guess I never said I'm sorry for letting you down.
I couldn't be what you wanted me to be.

I guess I lost myself somewhere in the fog of this fucked up town.
Lately, the weather's been shitty,
and it's always raining when I see you around.

Lost on streets I already know.
I'm stuck in the same place I was a year ago.

I'm still trying to cope with the fact that I'm alive.
Pictures on the fridge from when I was a kid, they remind me of better times.
I didn't ask for any of this, but it's what you wanted.
I know that I'm a piece of shit, just know that I'm trying my best.

I guess I'm just unsatisfied.
Hold my breath and close my eyes.
With hopes to give me a better life,
I'm sorry Mom, but I'm dead on the inside.

Lost on streets I already know.
I'm stuck in the same place I was a year ago.

I'm still trying to cope with the fact that I'm alive.
Pictures on the fridge from when I was a kid, they remind me of better times.
I didn't ask for any of this, but it's what you wanted.
I know that I'm a piece of shit, just know that I'm trying my best.

Lost on streets I already know.
I'm stuck in the same place I was a year ago
Track Name: Places
Hey kid, keep your head up.
Because you can't cry
if you look towards the sky.
It's time you learned that girls
Are nothing but troubles and heartbreak.
Take yourself away from it all.
Lock yourself away.

We’ll get better.
We'll go for a drive.
Spill some guts, and laugh it off.
There's no time for looking down
or thinking about home.
I’ve never felt this low.
We've got places to go.

Take our time on the road.
We'll talk about best friends and ex friends.
And difference between
Love and longing.
Don't mistake em.
You need yourself more than you need her.

We’ll get better.
We'll go for a drive.
Spill some guts, and laugh it off.
There's no time for looking down
or thinking about home.
I’ve never felt this low.
We've got places to go.
Track Name: Eighteen
I don't sleep enough.
I said I was fine like this,
But you still called my bluff

I wake up half dead inside.
I don't remember falling asleep last night.
Lately, I've been abusing substances,
Trying to make sense of all of this.

This is my way of coping,
I know it's sad, but I'm still hoping.

I've been sleeping on the couch, growing up's got me bummed out.
I never realized how fast the years past.
But you still run through my head somehow.
I guess I'm not over you now.
I kept my chin up when the weight of the world was pulling me down.

I gotta pick myself up, I gotta get my shit straight.
I'm getting tired of living out something I hate.
This life is too short, so just get it over with.
I'm too fucking young for this. I can't live my life like this.

This is my way of coping,
I know it's sad, but I'm still hoping.

I've been sleeping on the couch. Growing up's got me bummed out.
I never realized how fast the years passed.
But you still run through my head somehow.
I guess I'm not over you now.
I kept my chin up when the weight of the world was pulling me down.
