Track Name: Turn with the Tide
Regret hits like a tide turning 'round
Can't ignore it for long, I've found
As I sit here and stare at your contact - the button to call
Yeah, the back and forth sways me
Can't seem to agree in my own head on which way to go

Do you even want to see me?
Don't really know where I stand
And I know I've fucked up
Now the pain is abrupt
And I wish I could tell you the lot
Maybe tonight I'll call you
And we'll talk this through
And the dumb decisions I've made will turn with the tide
And I'll hear the sound of your voice with me again

(Turn with the tide, turn with the tide, turn with the tide)

Desire hits like a tide turning 'round
Can't ignore it for long, I've found
'Cause lately I've been craving you like never before
Yeah the back and forth sways me
Can't seem to agree. Maybe I should just let you go

Do you even want to see me?
Don't really know where I stand
And I know I've fucked up
Now the pain is abrupt
And I wish I could tell you the lot
Maybe tonight I'll call you
And we'll talk this through
And the dumb decisions I've made will turn with the tide
And I'll hear the sound of your voice with me again

Do you feel this way? Oh, I don't understand
Ooh, I should have known better
Please just take my hand
I'm scared to talk to you
Scared to talk this through
Please let our story not end but turn with the tide
And I'll hearth sound of your voice...

Do you even want to see me?
(Do you feel this way? Oh)
Don't really know where I stand
(I don't understand)
And I know I've fucked up
(Ooh, I should have known better)
Now the pain is abrupt
And I wish I could tell you the lot
(Please just take my hand)
Maybe tonight I'll call you
(I'm scared to talk to you)
And we'll talk this through
(Scared to talk this through)
And the dumb decisions I've made will turn with the tide
(Please let our stay not end but turn with the tide)
And I'll hear the sound of your voice with me again oooh
(Turn with the tide)
With me again oooh
(Turn with the tide)
With me again oooh
(Turn with the tide)

Maybe tonight I'll call you after my blood is boiling
Or maybe I'll just wait and burn this out
Track Name: Make Up Your Mind
This hunger, this craving for...
This hunger isn't real
Desire and dread
Desire and fire

Turning, tumbling, falling
I'm not coming back
Turning, tumbling, falling
Off the track

Feeling is living
Stumbling and trying to
Make up your mind when you know that you can't see
Life has no forecast
Trying to run fast
Turning and
Tumbling and
Falling and
Failing, oh

Can't exactly say what's not working for me
Nothing's falling into to place or running free

Turning, tumbling, falling
I'm not coming back
Turning, tumbling, falling
Off the tracks

Feeling is living
Stumbling and trying to
Make up your mind when you know that you can't see
Life has no forecast
Trying to run fast
Turning and
Tumbling and
Falling and
Failing, oh

Feeling is living
Stumbling and trying to
Make up your mind when you know that you can't see
Life has no forecast
Trying to run fast
Turning and
Tumbling and
Falling and
Failing and
Feeling is living
Stumbling and trying to
Make up your mind when you know that you can't see
Life has no forecast
Trying to run fast
Turning and
Tumbling and
Falling and
Failing, oh
Turning and
Tumbling and
Falling and
Failing, oh
Turning and
Tumbling and
Falling and
Failing, oh
Track Name: Trying Not to Like You
Why can't you be mean?
Everything's gone askew
If you were mean I wouldn't be here trying not to like like you

Why are you so fun?
It’d be easier if you weren't
This isn't something I want to go through
And I don't want to have feelings for you

But I can feel it, rising in my chest
Like gravity pulling me down
I can feel it, even though you can't
And I'm letting myself down by thinking about you
But I can feel it, even though you can't

Why am I catching feelings?
I'm caught in your current,
No matter what I do
Til' I'm washed up here on the shore, trying not to like you

Why can't you just like me?
You now see me as a friend
I wish I made you feel something else
But trying to change someone never helps

But I can feel it, rising in my chest
Like gravity pulling me down
I can feel it, even though you can't
And I’m letting myself down by thinking about you
But I can feel it, even though you can't

I wish you didn't distract me
Wish it wasn't true
It's clear I'm not distracting to you
Kinda wish you knew
Wish you felt it too
But it’s clear I can't follow this through

Yet still, I can feel it rising in my chest
Like gravity pulling me straight down
I can feel it but I know you can't
And I'm letting myself down
'Cause I keep thinking about you
But I can't help it ‘cause
I can feel it
But I know you can't
You can’t
Oooh, but I swish you could
Track Name: Focus
I can't take this anymore
Every wolf is at my doorstep
Take me away
Somewhere to stay
Believe me, I'm not here to play

All my cards are on the floor
He can't see me here at all yet
He's closer now
I don't know how
Now it's over, take a bow

Focus, focus, don't let go
Argument becomes my foe
Liar, liar, I'm on fire
Flames will grow
This is I know
But I can never let go

Running faster
Closing in
I need to get a hold
Or I won't ever win
He can't see what we could be
Trapped for all eternity

I try to play this game
But it's always the same, oh
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words, they hurt me so bad

Focus, focus, don't let go
Argument becomes my foe
Liar, liar, I'm on fire
Flames will grow
This is I know
But I can never...
Ooh, I can never let go, oh, oh
Track Name: All of This
Oh I, I had a dream about you
And you told me that you struggled through the day
Oh I, I wanted to tell you I wanted to help
But you always seemed to shy away

And I could tell you were scared but I knew that I would stay
And even though you were scared, you told me anyway

I told you about the troubles under the sun
Until you knew you weren't the only one
And I told you how I struggled through the day

But even though I told you the things I know
There were a lot of things that I didn't show
Because I pushed you away when you didn't want me to go

All of this, I want all of this,
I wanna tell you all about my loneliness
And the way I miss your face more than I should.
But all of this, we're not living this
And now as I lie here I my bed,
I'm awake now, and it was only in my head.

You were here, in my dream about you
And we talked about our struggles through the day
I wanted to hug you, to tell you that I miss you
But I didn't because you might not feel this way

I know you did once upon a time
But that was then, and now the turn is mine

But even though you told me it was nice to talk
There was something, in the way you were guarded that said
I made you feel nervous, yeah I did.

I didn't know if you still felt this,
And that's the reason why
Or if you wanted me gone now,
If you wanted to say goodbye

All of this, I want all of this,
I wanna tell you all about my loneliness
And the way I miss your face more than I should.
But all of this, we're not living this
And now as I lie here I my bed,
I'm awake now, and it was only in my head.
I'm awake now, and it was only in my head.

Then I dreamed that we started to reconnect,
And we talked like before when we were friends.
And I almost burst open,
Told you how I felt.
That I'd changed my mind, that I wanted more.
That now I was sure...

But you drifted away and I washed up on the shore.
And you weren't standing there beside me anymore.

All of this, I want all of this,
I wanna tell you all about my loneliness
And the way I miss your face more than I should.
But all of this, we're not living this
And now as I lie here I my bed,
I'm awake now, and it was only in my head.
Yeah I’m awake now, and it was only in my head.
And I wish I could tell you everything I said.

I still don't know if you still feel this,
And that's the reason why
Or if you want me gone now,
If you wanna say goodbye.
Track Name: Circles
Why can’t I just let you go?
I can’t wait forever, but maybe time’s just going slow
They say there's plenty of fish in the sea
And they say that there's always another "we"
But I've got a gut feeling
That there's a ceiling that can't be broken through
That we'll keep coming back
And we'll just have a knack for sticking like superglue

I want to believe this is over
And I want to believe I don't care moreover
But every time I think that we've parted
Something hooks me in and I'm back where I started
So tell me then, do you truly believe that we won't go in circles again?

I know I met you in high school
And the likely hood of this story's survival
Is little to none, so you can't be the one
But I can't help but think we're not done. Not yet ‘cause
'Cause I've got a gut feeling
That there's a ceiling that can't be broken through
That we'll keep coming back
And we'll just have a knack for sticking like superglue

I want to believe this is over
And I want to believe I don't care moreover
But every time I get close to thinking we've parted
Something hooks me and I'm back where I started
So tell me then, do you truly believe that we won't go in circles again?

Ooh ooh oooh
Ooh ooh oooh

I want to believe this is over
And I want to believe I don't care moreover
But every time I get close to thinking we've parted
Something hooks me and I'm back where I started
I want to believe this is over
And I want to believe you don't care moreover
But every time I think that we've parted
Something hooks me and I'm back where I started
So tell me then, do you truly believe that we won't go in circles again?

Because I can't truly believe we won't go in circles again
And somehow I don't, I just can't see how we'll be content as friends
I can't believe this is the end
