Track Name: It's Always You
When I first met you I instantly knew that I was going to fall in love with you. And there's something about those things that you said got me dreaming of you over and over again.

It's you, it's you.

It's you who let me in your bed.
It's you who's always in my head.
It's you who I am up against.
It's you who always came and went. It's always you.

I'm afraid that if I try and go all the way, I might wind up just pushing you away. And I know you like to be alone all by yourself. I think I'd stand a chance if I was someone else.

It's you, it's you.

It's you who keeps me up at night.
It's you who used to hold me tight.
It's you who I would die to see looking up back at me.

And I know you aren't ready to fall in love again
It's just so hard for me to only be your friend.
And I wish you would take a chance and open up your heart
I swear that I won't let those things you love fall apart.
Track Name: I'll Understand
I'm looking at myself from the outside in
Repeating mistakes I made back then
I know I know right from wrong
So why is it so hard to be strong?

I've been able to love everyone else
So I continue to abuse myself
The only place I can hold you is in my head
Then I wake up all alone in my bed.

I'll understand if you hate me because everyone knows I hate me too.
If you're ever gonna get a chance to be happy, then you deserve a brand new life without me.

Months have gone by and I still reflect
How can I replace what I call perfect?
I study photographs of us and the letter that you wrote me
I hope some day you'll come around and we can catch up over coffee.

I'll understand if you hate me because everyone knows I hate me too.
If you're ever gonna get a chance to be happy, then you deserve a brand new life without me.

And I wish you were here
You always make the hard times disappear
My dear
We can give this another shot this time next year

I'll understand if you hate me because everyone knows I hate me too.
If you're ever gonna get a chance to be happy, then you deserve a brand new life without me.
Track Name: You Gave Up
I never wanted for things to turn out this way and they did
Now you'll never look at me the same again
And I know it's no one's fault but my own
Now I'm all alone.

My friends tell me that I must be crazy
Starting to think that maybe
If I hold on for long enough, you'll forget why you gave up.

Late at night lying awake
I got this feeling that I can't shake
If I stop now it'll all be for nothing
And I gotta believe that you still feel something.

My friends tell me that I must be crazy
Starting to think that maybe
If I hold on for long enough, one day you might show up.

My friends tell me that I must be crazy
Starting to think that maybe
If I hold on for long enough, you'll forget why you gave up.
Track Name: Almond Eyes
When I opened up the door
Didn't know what I was in for
Didn't know what to expect
Didn't know what was to come next

Then I saw you standing there
Noticed your pulled back hair
And your shirt it was in pastel
But man, it was so hard to tell

I haven't seen the sun in days
Been thinking of all the different ways
To tell you how badly I want too
Be the one who gets to keep you,
And just when I was gonna stop trying
I felt love in the sight of you smiling
And it took me by total surprise
Getting lost in your almond eyes.

You bring me coffee in the morning
And I'll sing to you at night
You pull me in closer
When you let me treat you right

You tell me all your secrets
And I will tell you mine
You run your fingers through my hair
When we stay up all night

I haven't seen the sun in days
Been thinking of all the different ways
To tell you how badly I want too
Be the one who gets to keep you,
And just when I was gonna stop trying
I felt love in the sight of you smiling
And it took me by total surprise
Getting lost in your almond eyes.
Track Name: If I Could Erase You
I wish that I could go back to that night
Where you first kissed me at the party, nothing ever more right.
And in that moment I knew that I loved you,
and now it's one year later and I still feel the same.

Now I'm forced to imagine you holding hands with someone new,
and I just don't know what I should do.
Your friends tell me you're doing fine while I'm living just to pass the time
in a day dream where I make you mine.

What if I could erase you?
Wonder if I'd still chase you
What if I could erase you?
Wonder if I'd still miss you.

If you have a song stuck in your head, just sing the end.
Will that work for you? Will that work for you?
To get you out of my head, should I relive the end?
Will that work for you? Will that work for you?
Track Name: The Song I Hoped You'd Never Hear
I always have the most poetic thoughts but I can't seem to write it out on paper.
I'd give anything to think about something other than her.

I see you every where I go, and every where I'm not.
What was my life like before you? It seems as though I forgot.

Always skimming through the pages
Reading between the lines
I swear the stories were all about
The night that you and I entwined

Do you remember me from time to time?
And the way we'd make the sun shine.
Everything seemed to be just fine
Whenever you and I combined

Out of everything my hand has held
And all the heartbeats that I've ever felt
My favorite has always been yours
But instead of me you chose the door

And even though I never met your mom and dad
You were the best thing that I've ever had
You were so cute when I made you mad
And without you now I feel so bad

Always skimming through the pages
Reading between the lines
I swear the stories were all about
The night that you and I entwined

Do you remember me from time to time?
And the way we'd make the sun shine.
Everything seemed to be just fine
Whenever you and I combined
Track Name: Let You Go
I'm not ready to let you go just yet
No matter what I do or what I say, I can't get you out of my head
But how can you love someone you can't look in the eye?
What's it gonna take to finally say goodbye?

I know deep down we weren't meant to be
But now I am starting to believe there's something wrong with me
Because everyone leaves me eventually
What is it about us that you don't see?

I'm not ready to let you go just yet
No matter what I do or what I say, I can't get you out of my head
But how can you love someone you can't look in the eye?
What's it gonna take to finally say goodbye?

I know deep down we weren't meant to be
But now I am starting to believe there's something wrong with me
Because everyone leaves me eventually
What is it about us that you don't see?

So many things I wish that you knew
So many things that I just couldn't do
So many things I wish that you knew
So many times I wish I said I loved you.

So many things I wish that you knew
So many times I wish I said I loved you.
Track Name: Ukulele Song
You don't know that you really got me thinking
Enough time has passed for it to really sink
I apologize for always fucking up
I'm just grateful that you still don't want to break up

Don't you leave me now because you're my biggest fan
I'll take you around the world before we settle down again
Don't you leave me now because you are my best friend
I love you so much more I don't ever want this to end, no.

One day I'm gonna buy the castle that you wanted
It'll be on four wheels and we'll park it in the mountain
Oh baby I just think that you are the sun
I swear to god that I am the lucky one.

Don't you leave me now because you're my biggest fan
I'll take you around the world before we settle down again
Don't you leave me now because you are my best friend
I love you so much more I don't ever want this to end, no.
