Break Free 03:25
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

Honey 03:16
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

Waves 03:54
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

Serena 03:06
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

Wild Eyed 05:53
We're in a rush Let's take it slow Yea hit the brakes Or else we're gonna lose control Let a moment of serenity be a catalyst for our 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 all are alive now (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 this life (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 It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild-eyed now It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild-eyed now It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild-eyed now It's getting a little bit harder, we're getting a little more wild-eyed now

Addictive 03:15
I could stay up until the break of dawn I 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

Always 04:06
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

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

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

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

Restart 04:33
I missed you on the weekend Would you really be surprised We hadn't spent a weekend together 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

How To Love 04:10
Stop with the violence Don't you see the history book that we're writing Let's value our lives like diamonds I feel 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 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 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 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
