Track Name: The Way She Looked At Me
If you said we were wrong
To ever think this would work
I'd probably tell you you're right

You say don't let this go on
It'll just hurt you more
And I'd probably tell you you're right

I just miss the way she looked at me
I just miss the way she looked at me

If you said it's all done
We should just pack it up
I'd probably tell you you're right

If you say the time has now come
We should just give it up
I'd probably tell you you're right

I just miss the way she looked at me
I just miss the way she looked at me

If it's all just the same to you
I'll keep playing the fool

I just miss the way she looked at me
I just miss the way she looked at me
Track Name: Letting Go
I know it's hard to believe
That there will ever be
A sense of relief
You don't believe what you read
Your heart just bleeds and bleeds and bleeds

It never seems to redeem
It only claims defeat
It won't wash clean
You can't believe what you see
Your heart just needs and needs and needs

Oh, she's so alone
But oh, she's letting go
Oh, she's so alone
But oh, she's letting go

I bare it all in a song
But it feels like a con
I feel like a fraud
It comes out wrong, it's wrong, it's wrong

I'm in places I don't belong
But we just go one
Until our number's drawn
And we're gone, we're gone, we're gone

Oh, we're so alone
But oh, we're letting go
Oh, we're so alone
But oh, we're letting go

We're just an inch or two away
We're just an inch or two away

Oh, we're so alone
But oh, we're letting go
Oh, we're so alone
But oh, we're letting go
Track Name: Miss That Girl
It’s a cold day
In my universe
It’s dark times
When that bulb bursts

It’s dead giveaway
As far as I’m concerned
That I’m occupied
By just one girl

And I miss that girl
I miss that girl
I miss that girl
And she’s not even gone yet

It’s still dawning
that she’s gone for good
Wish I was good for her
I wish I understood

I got a letter
That said it wasn’t me
I was a real sweet guy
But she had to leave

And I miss that girl
I miss that girl
I miss that girl
And she just left today

Don’t even try to tell me to be fine
It’s not what I want to hear

And I miss that girl
I miss that girl
I miss that girl
And she’s been gone for years
Track Name: The Fight
Bigger, bigger
You always want more
Better, better
But what’s it all for

Faster, go faster
Just keep up the pace
But never concede the race

Wasted, we’ve wasted
Years of our lives
Faking and taking
Just enough to survive

Aching to break free
And uncover our eyes
It’s time to give up the fight

Let’s open up
And let the love in our hearts
Let’s open up
And let them see all our scars
Let’s believe
That we can escape the dark and change

( Never give up
never shut down
never walk away
Never skip town)
Just hold on
(Never lose touch
Never lose heart
Never give so much you have to fall apart
Never hold back
Never check out
Get up off the mat when you’re knocked down)
Just hold on
(Never be afraid
Of what you don’t know
Never let yourself believe you’re on your own)







Let’s open up
And let the love in our hearts
Let’s open up
And let them see all our scars

Let’s open up
And let the love in our hearts
Let’s open up
And let them see all our scars
Let’s believe
That we can escape the dark and change
Let’s open up
And let the love in our hearts
Let’s open up
And let them see all our scars
Let’s believe
That we can escape the dark and change

Somewhere, somebody
Is getting this right
It’s time to give up the fight
Track Name: Status Quo
Stand up everybody
Let's let our voices be heard
Stand up everybody
Let's shout our choice to the world

Gather 'round everybody
Check out this brand new machine
Gather 'round everybody
It's the American dream

This is becoming the way that we do things
It's just the ebb and the flow
This is becoming the way that we do things
It's now the status quo

Stand back everybody
Check out this busted machine
Tear it down everybody
Grieve the American dream

This is becoming the way that we do things
It's just the ebb and the flow
This is becoming the way that we do things
It's the new status quo

Status Quo

This is becoming the way that we do things
It's just the ebb and the flow
This is becoming the way that we do things
It's the new status quo

Status Quo
Track Name: All the Way
All the way, all the way, all the way, all the way
Since I've got my life today
I'm going to live it all the way

Each day that I get older
It's more likely that I'll die
But all these problems melt away
When I look up at the sky

They say that I'm a soldier
But for who and on which side
When all this fighting seems to be
For glory and for pride

All the way, all the way, all the way, all the way
Since I've got my life today
I'm going to live it all the way

No, I'm not religious
But I do still wonder why
Here I am and there you are
Until we say goodbye

They say that I'm a soldier
But for who and on which side
When all this fighting seems to be
For glory and for pride

All the way, all the way, all the way, all the way
Since I've got my life today
I'm going to live it all the way
Since I've got my life today
I'm going to live it all the way
