Track Name: Intro
I remember loving you
And I remember leaving you
And I remember counting down the days

I remember calling you and hearing you cry
And I remember hearing you say "Don't leave."
Track Name: Love, I'm Coming Back
With a heart full of feelings
And a head full of fear
I gave you everything I had until I walked away in tears

I said "I'm sorry that I have to go
if I don't, I'm afraid that things will only go
Downhill from here and it's just my sixteenth year."

And I'm so afraid of wasting my time

Too young to fall in love again
I've got other things to do
But when that's all wrapped up
Love, you know I'm coming back for you

With a head full of feelings
And a heart full of fear
I said to her, "What are we doing here?"

She said "Didn't you mean what you told me before?
I said "I did, but I don't think that I do anymore."

And I'm so afraid of wasting my time

Too young to fall in love again
I've got other things to do
But when that's all wrapped up
Love, you know I'm coming back for you
Track Name: Breathe
I see your face a lot
So I keep away from anywhere you might show up
I hear from you from time to time
And breathe it in, 'cause you're my source of life

Little things that no one sees
Seem to mean the world to me
I think my friends can see
You mean the world to me

I'm counting down the days until you'll be here again

But you're just out of reach
And I'm dying to breathe
But you're so far away
So tell me that I'll see you one more time
Because nothing else is keeping me alive

I didn't choose this for myself
We built this somehow
While I was fast asleep

I never thought you'd be the one
My heart would set it sights upon
But I keep writing letters, all to you

But you're just out of reach
And I'm dying to breathe
But you're so far away
So tell me that I'll see you one more time
Because nothing else is keeping me alive

I've tried to think of anyone I can't live without
But I would give them all away
But I don't think I could say the same for you

But you're just out of reach
And I'm dying to breathe
But you're so far away
So tell me that I'll see you one more time
Because nothing else is keeping me alive
Track Name: The Fool
Hey brother, I remember everything you told me
I think I want to go back to being small

Hey brother, can we just pretend it's over?
Or even act like this never was a problem at all?
Because I want to go back to when none of this needed solved
All this fight for nothing at all

Hey brother, I don't want to fight, I'm sorry
You mean much more to me than she ever could
Because I want to go back to when none of this needed solved
All this fight for nothing at all

Of everyone and everything I miss from being small
Of everyone and everything, collapsing on your floor could top them all

Hey brother, I never meant for this to reach your ears
All these words of nonsense you were never meant to hear
Because I want to go back to when none of this need solved
All this fight for nothing at all

There's so much that I've blamed on you
And I just make it worse
Can we but all this behind us?
Of my best friends, you were the first
I'd call you up but I wouldn't know the words to speak my mind
"I'm" and "Sorry" are the only words I find

Hey brother, I want to say "I'm sorry."
A rift between us needs to be refilled
Hey brother, can we just pretend it's over?
Or even act like this never was a problem at all?
Track Name: Send Me Back
What's meant to be will be in the end
I pray the end is closer than it seems
I see you everywhere I look, and I see you in my dreams
I'm saving all my love till you come back

Stare just for a second till the feeling goes
I keep telling myself I should let this go

Thank you for reminding me to not go crazy
All I really want is to read my story
And you're everywhere I look
And I see you in my dreams
So tell me when you're coming back

'Cause you're the only one I can't ignore
I'm closing all the windows
Because I'm waiting by the door
Stare just for a second till the feeling goes
I keep telling myself I should let this go

Please don't remind me this is just a dream
Send me back to where I'm drowning
I got stuck upstream
I'm floating down
Waiting till it's you and me
Sitting by the riverside
Loving this new place where we both decide

That you're the only one I can't ignore
I'm closing all the windows
Because I'm waiting by the door
Stare just for a second till the feeling goes
I keep telling myself I should let this go
Track Name: Someday
In the living room of a friend of a friend
I saw the beginning while ignoring the end
And I took you by the hand and said "Don't look down."

Winter melted and so did we
It wasn't easy telling you from me
And when summer came, we found it could not be undone

Because even when you know that love can't last
It's hard to walk away
And everything from summer's passed
But I know that it will come again someday

Way back when, I didn't know the story that we told
Now the chapter's over, and I still don't feel that old

Summer came and left me here
And you had gone away
And in your place I found the patience to wait another day

Because even when you know that love can't last
It's hard to walk away
And everything from summer's passed
But I know that it will come again someday

I've heard it said that talk is cheap
But that can't be
'Cause you and me both know the price of losing sleep

I remember losing sleep
And if you'd told me then
I wouldn't believe
The things I said when you looked at me
And said "Don't leave."
