Track Name: Break Free
I can never love again
It's a symptom of a broken heart
I'll learn to be resilient
I wish I were a world apart

I never knew what I was talkin' 'bout
I know I looked amused but I was bottled up
The worst part is I brought this on myself
It's too big a burden to start again

I wish I could break free
Back to where I'm supposed to be
I wish I could break free
Back to where I'm supposed to be

I'm not in my natural habitat
Sometimes I wanna hit the walls
These boots will walk an unbeaten path
Only until the soles wear off

Whoever knew what I had was good enough
Maybe it was too soon for me to be moving on
The worst part is I brought this on myself
It's too big a burden to start again

I wish I could break free
Back to where I'm supposed to be
I wish I could break free
Back to where I'm supposed to be
Track Name: Honey
You’re the brightest star in all our universe
I can’t keep my eyes from gazing into yours
Maybe a taste of something sweet is all you’ll need
If only I could be your honey

You cut like a knife
You cut through my mind
You look like money
If only I could be your honey

You’re the brightest star in all our universe
I can’t keep my eyes from gazing into yours
Maybe a taste of something sweet is all you’ll need
If only I could be your honey
Track Name: Waves
Love drifts in and out like waves
It waxes and it wanes
It crashes to the ground when no one's around
Love bends so easily
It always finds a way
I fall so heavily when love never stays

We used to laugh
Sitting on the sand
Unsure when the nights ended and the days began
You had my heart in the palm of your hand
Well gripped
You tripped
I tripped
We could barely stand

Love drifts in and out like waves
It waxes and it wanes
It crashes to the ground when no one's around
Love bends so easily
It always finds a way
I fall so heavily when love never stays

I've been drowning in a world without you
I must trust the current who knows who it will carry me to
Your love was a red wine to my lips
Deepening a stain you left every time I took a sip

Love drifts in and out like waves
It waxes and it wanes
It crashes to the ground when no one's around
Love bends so easily
It always finds a way
I fall so heavily when love never stays
Track Name: Serena
Serena
Loves a chocolate chip coconut cookie
Serena
Wants to book a trip to a paradise city

She's got morning dew eyes
Hair down to her thights
She's got that cocoa skin
Makes you wanna jump in
Serena can make a man sigh
She's an ultimate high

Serena
A whole lotta wild dialed up to eleven
Serena
Gives a belly rub like you died and went to heaven

She's got a devilish tongue
Yea she ain't all bubblegum
She'll make your heart go numb
It's already been done for Serena
She's hard to deny
Sparks go wild
I know it's all in my mind
Let me hit rewind for Serena
The brightest smile
An artisan style

Why'd I have to fall for Serena
Track Name: Wild Eyed
We're in a rush
Just take it slow
Yea hit the brakes
Or else we're gonna lose control
Let a moment of serenity be a catalyst for your needs

(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
We can just close our eyes
(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
We can escape our lives
(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
Slip out of our reality
(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
There's nothing there for you or me

You gotta push through
All of the burden you go through
Don't let your worry control you
If you need relief, deliberately take a step into the moment
Breathe within it, resilient
If there's something far more fundamental at stake
It's your passion, your life, and living awake
Let's enjoy our time around while we're all alive

(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
We can just close our eyes
(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
We can escape our lives
(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
Slip out of our reality
(It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild eyed now)
There's nothing there for you or me
Track Name: Addictive
I could stay up until the break of dawn
Can't fight a habit when I never really want to
I know my vice is an addictive one
My time awake is speeding to the day I die

I can quit anything
But I won't
I can quit anything
But I don't

When I unwrap a present sitting underneath my tree
I hope the gift inside can make me smile wide
It's never the gift itself that makes me happy
It's the paper around the box I get to tear apart

I can tear anything
But I don't
I can break anything
But I won't
Track Name: Always
Remembering old days
Out with close friends
Reckless as we could get
Jumped off the highest cliff
Beach and campfires
Nintendo and VHS
Laughs in the backseats
Too easy to reminisce

No matter our age
I still feel the same
You and I will be friends always
When we're apart
Only seasons change

A crush from high school
The sweep of our first kiss
Like two leaves in autumn wind
Echo from Incubus
We grew up quickly
But we sure had fun
So glad that we filled up
With plenty of good love

No matter our age
I still feel the same
You and I will be friends always
When we're apart
Only seasons change
You and I will be friends always

How the time flew by I'll never understand
I guess life picks up speed around the bends
If only good times would never end

No matter our age
I still feel the same
You and I will be friends always
When we're apart
It seems we've never changed
You and I will be friends always
No matter our age
I still feel the same
You and I will be friends always
When we're apart
Only seasons change
Track Name: No One's Gonna Love You Like I Do
I'll never be your type
You don't go for guys like me
The only guys you like lack personality
I don't need to think twice
I gotta make you believe
I may not be the one you want but I'm the one you need

Now tell me what are we gonna do
I know that I'm good for you

By now you should have found out
That no one's gonna love you like I do
Somehow we'll figure it all out
No one's gonna love you like I do

Girl take my hand
Take a leap of faith
Stop looking for the kind of man
That your parents would love to hate
The last one took your heart and ran
Convinced you not to wait
So give me this chance
Let's not leave this up to fate

Now tell me what are we gonna do
I know that I'm good for you

By now you should have found out
That no one's gonna love you like I do
Somehow we'll figure it all out
No one's gonna love you like I do

I would do anything for you
You know I'm crazy for you

By now you should have found out
That no one's gonna love you like I do
Somehow we'll figure it all out
No one's gonna love you like I do
Track Name: Back In Love Again
I've been thinking with my head in the clouds
I need a woman who can make me proud
I need a woman who will understand
She needs to make me feel like a man
Girl talk to me

I wanna know our situation
Is this love or infatuation
How long are you gonna keep me waiting
To let me show you my appreciation

You see this girl is so damn fine
Gotta make it a mission to make her mine
She's got legs that go for miles
And I like her moves
I like her style
Girl talk to me

I wanna know our situation
Is this love or infatuation
How long are you gonna keep me waiting
To let me show you my appreciation
Cause I don't want this to ever end
Let's not start before we begin
I had a heart I thought would never mend
But now I'm feeling back in love again

She's so damn sophisticated
She got me feeling so intoxicated
She got me feeling so...

I wanna know our situation
Is this love or infatuation
How long are you gonna keep me waiting
To let me show you my appreciation
Cause I don't want this to ever end
Let's not start before we begin
I had a heart I thought would never mend
But now I'm feeling back in love again
Track Name: Better Together
She's foolish
Dependent
Mischievous
Especially when she's longing after things she don't need

Regardless
I'm attracted
Hypocritical
Especially when she's just another girl I don't need

Maybe she belongs with me
We're better together
Maybe she is all I need
We're better together

Flashback to the moment
When first we met
She played defense
Devoted to a man she didn't need
We were tipsy
Down a bottle
It was poisonous
Especially when her bed never had a vacancy

Maybe she belongs with me
We're better together
Maybe she is all I need
We're better together
Track Name: Restart
I missed you on the weekend
Would you really be surprised
We hadn't spent a weekend
Since the fourth of last July

We loved non-stop
When you moved away we stopped
When I left our spot
Our love took a dive down

Everyday was another restart
Another new way to keep breaking your heart
If I could change and go back to the start
I don't think I ever could have won your everlasting love

She never liked the things we had done
If only she would have spoke her mind
And I swear I didn't do anything wrong
Now I feel like I wasted all my time

We loved non-stop
When you moved away we stopped
When I left our spot
Our love took a dive down

Everyday was another restart
Another new way to keep breaking your heart
If I could change and go back to the start
I don't think I ever could have won your everlasting love

Giving up on love always takes so long
My mind is working faster than my heart

Everyday was another restart
Another new way to keep breaking your heart
If I could change and go back to the start
I don't think I ever could have won your everlasting love
Track Name: How To Love
Stop with the violence
Don't you see the history book that we're writing
Let's value all lives like diamonds
We're taking steps back and I don't know how we stop this
We must do more than only change the topic
Will we forever be this way
It's time we have a heart to heart
Bring down the walls that keep us apart

(Let me learn how to love)
We're locked in a daze
(Let me learn how to love)
Witholding the key to our hearts
(Let me learn how to love)
Don't let fear tear us apart
(Let me learn how to love)
We can change our ways
(Let me learn how to love)
We just gotta be willing to start

Tethered to our drawbacks
Regurgitated hate, I won't buy that
I've seen love across the planet
We're stuck on our phones open your eyes
We're addicted to these broadcasts
Who shot who, killers with biopics
It doesn't need to be this way
Let's rediscover who we really are
Bring down the walls that keep us apart

(Let me learn how to love)
We're locked in a daze
(Let me learn how to love)
Witholding the key to our hearts
(Let me learn how to love)
Don't let fear tear us apart
(Let me learn how to love)
We can change our ways
(Let me learn how to love)
We just gotta be willing to start
