Track Name: Home
Verse 1:

Stop
And look at all the people passing through the day
They will never leave here, never get away
From a place that's full of lies and apathy
And the last thing on their minds is breaking free
Breaking free

Chorus:

Oh you say that this is home
And I'll never be alone
But you don't know, you don't know
Now I've only been deceived
By the ones I should believe
So is this home? When I'm alone?

Verse 2:

Stuck
Is the position that I always feel I'm in
I've got no one to love and no medicine
To mend the constant broken promises I get
From the ones who seem to barely give a shit
Give a shit

Chorus

Outro:

Oh you say that this is home
Woah, Woah
Oh you say that this is home
Woah, Woah
Oh you say that this is home
Woah, Woah
Oh you say that this is home
Track Name: The Death of Us
Verse 1:

This dream will never be what I expected
I never thought I'd see you re-directed
To something from the past already broken
The story of our time will be left unspoken

Chorus:

Tell me how it felt when you were lonely
You were always the one I never meant to hurt
Tell me how it felt when you were set free
I will always be there for you, just don't let go

Verse 2:

Why did you choose to leave and hurt me again?
I may not ever know but I'll still be your friend
Through everything we've done, I will be without you
(Please don't go now, I need you here)
But I will still have hope, hope I will hold onto
(Please don't go now, I need you here)

Chorus

Bridge 1:

Tell me I don't have to do this again
Tell me I am free
Tell me I don't have to do this again
Tell me I am free
Tell me I don't have to do this again
Tell me I am free
Tell me I don't have to do this again

Chorus

Outro:

I had a way out
It was the death of us
I had a way out
It was the death of us
I had a way out
It was the death of us
Track Name: Before Falling Asleep
Verse 1:

We will fall before I can catch my breath
(Come back, come back)
You will call and tell me your last regret
(Stay back, stay back)
The life I spent with you has died
(Come back, come back)
But please don't fade away don't fly
(Stay back, stay back)

Chorus:

Tell me what you thought
When you walked away
Like the last time
You always left me breathless
Give me every reason
You're leaving me
Are you okay?
Or have you fallen asleep?

Verse 2:

Where will you be this coming year?
(Come back, come back)
Sing, oh sing me to sleep my dear
(Stay back, stay back)
For now just tell me you'll be fine
(Come back, come back)
Before you fall and cross the line
(Stay back, stay back)

Chorus
Track Name: A Changing Picture
Intro:

A changing picture

Verse 1:

A changing picture of you and me
A broken friendship is all I see
You walked away when I was the one in need
You left me hanging and now you're incomplete

Pre-Chorus 1:

You're incomplete

Chorus:

I wish the days when I could talk to you
I wish they didn't have to end so soon
But since the day you left me waiting here
I've been giving up on you my dear

Verse 2:

The chance you've given wasn't deserved
They broke your heart and left you unnerved
They left you crying and on your knees
You gasp for air now but you can't breathe

Pre-Chorus 2:

You can't breathe

Chorus 2:

I wish the days when I could talk to you
I wish they didn't have to end so soon
But since the day you left me waiting here
I've been giving up
I've been giving up

Bridge:

Will I ever see you again?
Will you know me or is this the end?

Chorus 2

Bridge
Track Name: Goodbye For Now
Verse 1:

It's 4am and time to save you
From a place you shoulda never wandered to
It's 5am I lie beside you
I keep on thinking, "Is it too good to be true?"

Pre-Chorus 1:

Is this too good to be true?

Chorus:

Goodbye for now
I'll see you soon
Maybe someday I will wake up
And again I will be lying next to you
But not today
There is nothing I can do
To make you see
What's standing right in front of you

Verse 2:

You come again and now I need you
To be the only one I've ever held onto
But once again he must deny you
And make it seem like it was too good to be true

Pre Chorus 2:

It was too good to be true

Chorus

Bridge:

It's 4am and time to save you
From a man you shoulda never run into
But once again he will deny you
And make it seem like

Pre Chorus 2

Chorus
Track Name: Disappear
Verse 1:

This is getting old
The story always left untold
The book unread
The words still ringing in my head

Chorus:

So please don't say it'll be okay
I know where we go from here
You'll play along like there's nothing wrong
When inside there's only fear
I'll start to doubt what you're all about
And if you've been sincere
Then a day will come when you will run
And leave me to disappear

Verse 2:

You're still all alone
Still drowning in a monotone
Pool of your tears
It's been like this so many years

Chorus
Track Name: The Last Four Years
Verse 1:

We sit around thinkin' 'bout things
As we come to the end
Will this be the last time?
Or will we ever be here again
Time is ticking on the things we love
But soon it'll be time for us to rise above
And go on to another place
So lets never forget the memories we've made

Chorus:

Get ready to say goodbye
Get ready to change your life
'Cause this will be our very last night
So grab on everything you never want to leave
And take it with you on this flight

Verse 2:

We have our questions about the things
That lie ahead
But don't be frightened
Just think of all the things that I have ever said
There's always someone who will be there
To stand by your side
And hopefully
You'll find someone to go along for the ride

Chorus

Bridge:

So much love and fear
With the pain and tears
All coming in the last four years
It's been a world apart
Right from the very start
But together we will have our cheers
We saw a brother die
We saw a brand new life
We saw so many people cry
We're all together here
To end this final year
All we have to do is try

Chorus
