I know you’re feeling so uncomfortable and you know I know you’re suffering from multiple overflows This life won’t ever give you what you won’t give away And you know that won’t ever change You don’t know exactly what you want Or just exactly what you need I know that you just want it now You don’t have to be a debutante Just have to live the life you lead But you just don’t know how You know you won’t last You’re bound to break, burn out fast You’ve got to relax Or else its gonna blow up You’re gonna freak out You’re gonna stress out You’re gonna melt down Unless you lighten up Your mind’s been thinkin’ And your eyelid’s sinkin’ And I think you’ve had enough The worlds been drinkin’ And I bet you haven’t seen it all The path you’re takin’s pretty rough You don’t know exactly what you want Or just exactly what you need I know that you just want it now You don’t have to be a debutante Just have to live the life you lead But you just don’t know how You know you won’t last You’re bound to break, burn out fast You’ve got to relax Or else its gonna blow up You’re gonna freak out You’re gonna stress out You’re gonna melt down Unless you lighten up You know you won’t last You’re bound to break, burn out fast You’ve got to relax Or else its gonna blow up You’re gonna freak out You’re gonna stress out You’re gonna melt down Unless you lighten up

I’ve got a white paged pleather notebook With canvases as empty as the thoughts that seem to swim inside my head And I can’t seem to ignite ‘em No I can’t even write ‘em So I think I’ll keep an empty book instead I’ve got three black-covered notebooks Just thinking about the next one how I’ll speed from front to back when it arrives But this pen it doesn’t move My mind can’t seem to find a groove But the words that echo cut through me like knives It seems to me That I can’t write the words That haunt me for ages Can’t get from mind to matter But they don’t matter And they don’t care For these blank pages For these blank pages I’ve got a stack of barren notebooks Resting on a shelf collecting dust Without a single note contained And when I sit with one beside me To leave the past behind me I tend to close and leave it unexplained It seems to me That I can’t write the words That haunt me for ages Can’t get from mind to matter But they don’t matter And they don’t care For these blank pages For these blank pages I’ve got a ten foot stack of notebooks And all the words I said to you could Fill about a hundred thousand lines But they look so goddamn clean So perfect and pristine So maybe I’ll just save ‘em for next time So maybe I’ll just save ‘em for next time So maybe I’ll just save ‘em for next time

I see there's something strange about you I see you open up your eyes I see there's something wrong inside you A secret way down deep inside Something you can't hide ‘Cause I I can see it now Spilling somehow out of you But now After all is said and done I could still be the one 'Cause even though I know your secret I can keep it I know that no one’s there to guide you You know I'm one phone call away I know you want someone beside you I can be someone today I can be someone today ‘Cause I I can see it now Spilling somehow out of you But now After all is said and done I could still be the one 'Cause even though I know your secret I can keep it You know I love you deep inside You know you never left my mind ‘Cause I I can see it now Spilling somehow out of you But now After all is said and done I could still be the one 'Cause even though I know your secret ‘Cause I I can see it now Spilling somehow out of you But now After all is said and done I could still be the one 'Cause even though I know your secret 'Cause even though I know your secret 'Cause even though I know your secret I can keep it

Running your cheeks over my finger tips Your head on my chest and the way that you bit your lips All of those things that I can only miss Where did it go I continue to wonder this Oh I never let ya Oh I never let ya fall Oh we never had a mountain that was ever too tall Oh and it was fun the time we spent with us, we had a ball Oh we only thought We only thought we had it all Only thought we had it all Walking away Oh the thought is still killing me And this wasn’t how it was supposed to be I’m hearing it now Oh I can still hear your voice I’m seeing it now That I had no other choice Oh I never let ya Oh I never let ya fall Oh we never had a mountain that was ever too tall Oh and it was fun the time we spent with us, we had a ball Oh we only thought We only thought we had it all Only thought we had it all Nowhere that I can call my home No place that I can go where I won’t be alone No place that I can sleep where I won’t feel the cold Oh I never let ya Oh I never let ya fall Oh we never had a mountain that was ever too tall Ooh and it was fun the time we spent together Oh the times we never left each other, never jumped the gun, we had a ball Oh I never let ya Oh I never let ya fall Oh we never had a mountain that was ever too tall Oh and it was fun the time we spent with us, we had a ball Oh we only thought We only thought we had it all Oh we only thought We only thought we had it all Oh we only thought We only thought we had it all Oh we only thought We only thought we had it all

My money is spent I don’t think about the time or where it went Or where you’ve been But I still let it get under my skin On a scale of one to ten You’re high enough that I still let you in Too high for me to see The kinds of things you do to me You drive me mad And we both know it’s insane but It’s not so bad This good outweighs the pain And I don’t underrate you You’re something I can’t ignore And I’ve told you I hate you But I hate everything else more

Lie in my bed with nothin’ to do Its three A.M. I’m thinkin’ of you The fireplace roars and rain drips outside I pick myself up and know that I tried I follow myself for a while Try to keep my mind from running wild From running wild But I ran my mind over Remembered the truth I dug out the things that Remind me of you I got lost in my thoughts Of old and the new And I scratched off your name From this stupid tattoo But I’ll put It back If it gets you back These permanent scars they sit and they pain I try to remove but they still remain Oh a picture of you is etched in my brain If I don’t get it out I might go insane I follow myself for a while Try to keep my mind from running wild From running wild But I ran my mind over Remembered the truth I dug out the things that Remind me of you I got lost in my thoughts Of old and the new And I scratched off your name From this stupid tattoo But I’ll put It back If it gets you back I’m trying to get to the start But this headache now aches in my heart And I ran my mind over Remembered the truth I threw out the things that Remind me of you I got lost in my thoughts Of old and the new And I scratched off your name From this stupid tattoo And I ran my mind over Remembered the truth I trashed all the things that Remind me of you I got lost in my thoughts Of old and the new And I scratched off your name From this stupid tattoo And I put it back

January, I miss you already February, oh please come back home March and April, oh pretty soon you'll Be back in my arms Come May and June, I'll see you soon July and August, is waiting for us September, remember I'm here A year is not so long I'll be here ‘till you're done The days they will pass in a second The months gone like that I reckon If a year feels too long just listen to this song And I'll be right there to whisper in your ear That time flies when you're missin’ someone Time flies when you're missin’ someone Heres comes October, I’m love drunk not sober Your ETA can't come through too soon In November, your birthday I remember A few days later we'll celebrate mine too A year is not so long I'll be here ‘till you're done The days they will pass in a second The months gone like that I reckon If a year feels too long just listen to this song And I'll be right there to whisper in your ear That time flies when you're missin someone Time flies when you're missin’ someone December finally, I kiss you kindly I hold you tight and you fit like a glove This year was long but it's finally over Still can't believe you're back here, my love

Now you’ve gone Had our last yesterday This isn’t as easy as some people may make it out to be And I never said But I had so much to say This isn’t as easy to go on my way without losing me And I know You’re not dreaming anymore ‘Cause you’re sleeping way too long And I want to tell you badly to wake up And be All that time It echoes through my brain And it’s not as easy to keep it maintained like I did before Some kind of bliss Much harder to attain And it’s not as easy to live with remains and the nevermore And I know You’re not dreaming anymore ‘Cause you’re sleeping way too long And I want to tell you badly just wake up And be Here

Evan and Ben: Both of you are my go to sources for feedback, and you never fail to help me get my music to where i want it to be. You guys are gold mines of friends.

For Dakota
