Track Name: Today
Don't wanna sleep today, I've been getting lonely inside my bed
Can't escape my head, I'll spend a little while outside instead

I don't recognize your face, even though you call me we'd only be misled
I don't feel the life inside this space without all the love you gave me

I hope it's understood, I didn't mean to cause a fallout
I know you tried, but you didn't really want it that way
I hate the regret, I never wanna feel this again
I'm hitting rewind, to start on over

In a moment, the world leaves you behind
You can't control it, so find a place to hide

Don't wanna talk today, I feel a slight uneasy 'bout what I'd say
I know I can't complain, all the love around me's a saving grace

I don't recognize this place, so far behind I'm losing in this race
I don't recognize the hate, there's nothing in this world that justifies it

I hope you know, I miss you and I want you around
But I can't stay, it hurts me that I'm feeling this way
I can't be friends, I'm sorry but it just won't work
I can't forget, I can't start over

In a moment, your friend leaves you behind
You can't control it, a love that somehow dies
Track Name: New Friends
I want you back,
I know writing 'bout it won't bring you home

But I can't think straight
Maybe letting it out this way helps, I don't know

Wish I had something, to sing about
I've got nothing to sing about

So here we go again,
I've been avoiding this for nearly a year
I go to work, I lie to all of my friends

Wish I had something else to sing about, I've got nothing to sing about

365, a web of lies
And you tore it all down
I was just blind, ran out of time
People change and they drift apart

So here we go again
I was drinking all night with a heavy heart
I made some new friends
Conversations about sleeping patterns, I don't know

Wish I had something else to sing about, I need something to sing about
Track Name: Come Home
Baby won't you come home with me,
You could stay the night maybe
I wanna chance to show you what we could be

I think that you're lonely, I see in those eyes
A weight that you carry, it's no surprise
I wanna sit with you, sit down and work this whole thing out
I wanna forgive and forget, and leave all the doubt

Baby won't you come home with me,
You could stay the night maybe
I wanna chance to show you what we could be

I've got no plans, but good things are coming my way this I know
And I feel like I'm coming up strong
Even though all the pain and the hurt live on
I wanna save up some money
Move out of the country to a place I belong
And maybe some day
I'll find you and sit you down and play you this song

Baby won't you come home with me,
You could stay the night maybe
I wanna chance to show you what we could be

I know I'm getting older, and I feel it every day
Track Name: Hiding Your Love Away
It's not like you're bigger for it, it's not like you're better for it
Hiding your love away, you keep hiding your love away

Maybe you're too young to care, about what's said and done
Someday you'll find it's a cheap state of mind
Thinking no one could ever replace her

Sipping from your coffee, making plans to leave the city
Oh this year can go to hell, leave me alone and all will be well

Maybe you're just hanging on, to what's said and done
You'll realize it's a blessing in disguise
Least that's what people round here say

Someday you'll find it's a cheap state of mind
Thinking no one could ever replace her
Saying no one could ever replace her
Living no one could ever replace her

It's not like you're bigger for it, it's not like you're better for it
Hiding your love away, you just keep hiding your love away
Track Name: Summer Dress
Why don't you wear your summer dress?
The one you wore when we first met
The weather's perfect now for walking
It's days like these that I feel blessed

It's the simple things in life
That can make a life worth living
Sometimes that's what I, feel like I've been missing

We never talk quite like we used to
People move so fast that they forget
Sometimes it's better to do nothing
Take a little time to reassess

It's the simple things in life
That can make a life worth living
Sometimes that's what I, feel like I've been missing
