If I could go back to the first night when we met There's a few simple words I might have said that could have been the thing that kept you here When my mind starts running back to you I'll hide my face in my hands like I always do And my heart it starts beating And I begin to breathe you in I'm sorry if you felt like you couldn't be seen I just want you to know it's not you it's me I just have too many insecurities Please be patient with me When my mind starts running back to you I'll hide my face in my hands like I always do And my heart it starts beating And I begin to breathe you in And you probably can't stand the thought of me Meanwhile I feel so incomplete No longer hearing all about your day What could I have done to make you stay? When my mind starts running back to you I'll hide my face in my hands like I always do And my heart it starts beating And I begin to breathe you in

Trying to fix what you broke in the first place All I ever asked of you was for space But you couldn't give me that and you still can't. Hearing your voice makes me feel like my heart is gonna explode from my chest You keep clawing at my insides til there is nothing left You don't get to discuss whatever happened to us Cause you did this to me You're the one who chose to leave. I'd set myself on fire to keep you warm My thoughts are louder than the thunderstorm I scream to make it stop til I'm out of breath It just got quiet cause I'm already dead. I can't tell if this is just regular heart ache Cause everything in me is about to break Is this a dream from which I'll never wake? I should have known that you'd be my biggest mistake. The draft coming in my window reminds me how cold it is to feel alone The draft coming in my window reminds me how cold it is to be alone

Take Up My Time (free) 03:04
Say it on your own it's lonely at the top The grass is always greener, but will it ever stop? We climb under and over ourselves between the sheets and our fingers crawl like spiders to each other in the seats Try not to abandon me try not to abandon me From your chest to your hips is where my torso usually fits We squeeze even tighter than the space between our lips Snow like feet inching up your skin Is usually our cue to begin Try not to abandon me Try not to abandon me To focus where we're going in the middle of the night Can I convince you that I don't mind That you take up all of my time Yeah you take up all of my time Yeah you take up all of my time You take up all of my time
5.
Know That You Have Me (free) 02:41
Sweat starts racing down your face As two become one in this heated space I lose control over my hips Waiting for you to steal that kiss I think of you inside of your room And the way your body begins to consume Me and every breath in my lungs You can teach me to slow dance with your tongue You've got me on a short leash and I can't breath You pull me in tighter and know that you have me Is it okay if in the morning I'm away? and make you wonder why I didn't stay Just know that we'll always have that night You can think of me to pass the time
6.
I know that you're fine on your own Do you think of me when you are all alone? These days have been especially hard Oh why won't you let down your guard? I promise that I'm not going to hurt you again like you think that I probably would You're so scared of ever getting close But you're the one that I want the most I don't deserve to be in love again Cause I don't like to be affectionate Sometimes I get scared every now and then I'll always be just your best friend Whenever I try and look ahead I just think back to when we'd lay in your bed Now you won't go anywhere near me and I've never felt more empty I don't deserve to be in love again Cause I don't like to be affectionate Sometimes I get scared every now and then I'll always be just your best friend I always hurt those who are good to me i don't deserve to be happy so i'll just sit on the sidelines and watch as my life passes me by I don't deserve to be in love again Cause I don't like to be affectionate Sometimes I get scared every now and then I'll always be just your best friend
7.
Everything For You (free) 04:11
I purposely held my breath under water longer than i probably should just so i can get the closest to heaven without climbing up ladders I know it's the furthest place I can get from you But what else can I do? I did everything for you Take me back to Lafayette To the minute when we met Wish I knew what I was getting into Give me one more day of a life without you I did everything for you
8.
Falling Off The Edge (free) 04:00
If there ever was such a thing as miracles i'd be in a better place and everything i ever loved wouldn't have gone away Did you ever wake up to realize that you have nothing left to keep you from falling falling falling off the edge? and i used to feel safe knowing you'd pull me back in but who will be your safety net? nothing has gone according to plan and i am still the same i've always been and everything around me continues to change and i am still the same i can't find the light to brighten up this room i can't find the love i once had for you i can't find the strength to put in the effort i can't find a way to make myself feel better
9.
Whenever I close my eyes I can still feel you inside Can still hear you breathing deeply and feeling up my thighs You left my room hours ago The hands on my clock are moving so slow I'm falling asleep on the shower floor Wishing I had done something different before. There's not enough soap in the world to wash you off of me There's not enough Gentleman's Jack to make me forget I had to take Plan B. Make me forget what you took away from me. I lay down and begin to shiver despite the heat's on blast. I can't forget the pause in your face when I asked you to stop. There's not enough soap in the world to wash you off of me There's not enough Gentleman's Jack to make me forget I had to take Plan B. Make me forget what you took away from me.
