Track Name: Figure This Out
If it meant that I could hear your voice
I’d let you tell me every day that you don’t love me
I’d shut my mouth and I’d listen, because for some stupid reason
It still hasn’t been drilled into my thick skull yet

I’m just trying to get an understanding of this
I always search for what is lost, I know I’ve gotta quit
I think I’m over this, but then I just regress
And I know that you have been done for so long but

I keep romanticizing the idea of you and me
And I’m still hoping for something
Something that’ll never be
I still haven’t learned

So I tell myself that we’ll figure all this out
I know it’ll never happen so I guess I’ll shut my mouth
Save my breath
And accept that you’re happy
I’m just glad that you’re happy with where you are

I know I said I’m moving forward but I might’ve made a mistake
Cause I just feel like I’ve been cornered
Yeah I’m stuck here in the same place.
I’ve gotta get you the hell out of my head already
You’re burned in my brain I’m deteriorating
So much time has passed, I’m still just here waiting
And I know that you have been done for so long but

I keep romanticizing the idea of you and me
And I’m still hoping for something
Something that’ll never be
I still haven’t learned

So I tell myself that we’ll figure all this out
I know it’ll never happen so I guess I’ll shut my mouth
Save my breath
And accept that you’re happy
I’m just glad that you’re happy with where you are

The truth is I’m just afraid of being alone in the end

So I tell myself that we’ll figure all this out
I know it’ll never happen so I guess I’ll shut my mouth
Save my breath
And accept that you’re happy
I’m just glad that you’re happy
Yeah I tell myself that we’ll figure all this out
I know it’ll never happen so I’ll shut my fucking mouth
Save my breath
And accept that you’re happy
Cause I just want you to be happy
Whether it’s with or without me
Though it’s clear that you don’t need me
I just fucking wish you loved me
Track Name: Ghost
You held me captive
Confined to living in the shadow of your absence
Will I ever dig myself out of this mess?
I’ve gotta clear my head

I know I have to
Try my best to find my footing here without you
I haven’t walked on solid ground since you left
I’m wasting time again

I’m holding hands with your ghost
And it’s telling me that I just need to
Take a deep breath and let you go
I can’t keep holding on to what seems like thin air to you
I’ve just gotta learn to let this go

I’ve never felt so lost
Inside these circles in the ground that I can’t step across
It feels like something weighs me down right on my chest
So lay me to rest

I never thought that this would hurt
But I’ll just let my body burn
You might not be what I deserve but you’re what I want

I’m holding hands with your ghost
And it’s telling me that I just need to
Take a deep breath and let you go
I can’t keep holding on to what seems like thin air to you
I’ve just gotta learn to let this go

All of my demons wear masks of your face
Your phantom still haunts me, I feel its embrace

I’m holding hands with your ghost
And it’s telling me that I just need to
Take a deep breath and let you go

(I can’t keep holding on to you)

Let you go
Track Name: Back to You
I’ve been wasting all my time
Waiting for the day when thoughts of you don’t cloud my mind
And I’ve been trying to repair
Not that I think you should care,
I’m just clearing the air

But do you think that we
Could still be friends
And just pretend I don’t love you
We could get to know the newest versions of each other
Act like we were never lovers too

Or is it too complicated?
Well maybe it is
So just do me a favor
And tell me how to forget all of this

Cause I’ve been spending all my days
Wishing that the rain would fall and wash this all away
All this aching in my chest that’s been
Making it so much harder for me to breathe
How could I be so naive

To even think that maybe you and I
Could still be friends
And just pretend I don’t love you
We could get to know the newest versions of each other
Act like we were never lovers
Something that I’ve tried to do
Since the day that I lost you
Since the day that I watched you leave

Cause I’ve been wasting all my time
Tormenting myself with foolish ideas
I wish I could just leave this all behind
It doesn’t pain me like it used to
It just gets on my nerves
I don’t wanna fucking think about you anymore
I try to sway my mind away
But no matter what I just always come right back to you
Track Name: Papercut
Lately, it’s been feeling like my bones are collapsing
And all this heartache is weighing me down
I thought that this would be over by now

But you know it seems that I will
I’ll never wash you off of me

You’re just like a scar or a bad tattoo
I can cover you up but there will always be a memory of you

It’s hard to keep my composure when I still don’t have closure.

I’m breaking down into little tiny pieces
And faking a smile hoping someone believes it
This situation has me on a steady decline
And it digs into me like a thorn in my side

Well you know it seems that I will
I’ll never wash you off of me

You’re just like a scar or a bad tattoo
I can cover you up but there will always be a memory of you

It hurts just like a papercut
Your love just wasn’t deep enough
It only scratched the surface
I guess I wasn’t worthy of your
Time heals all wounds they say
So why won’t these bruises go away?
Cause it’s been another 20 months
And I’m still just so in love
You’re still all I’m thinking of to this day

I wish you would’ve stayed
Track Name: Karinne
Hey Karinne
Could you tell me how you moved on so quick
It’s been over a year and I’m still not over it
I guess I’m just wondering how the hell you’ve been

Yeah Karinne
You know you really changed the way I think
Cause everything just seems so god damn bleak
I never thought I’d ever feel this weak

I’m daydreaming and pretending that you love me
It’s a nice thought so I think it all the time
I’m wondering

Does your chest still get all heavy when we speak?
And do you ever lie down and wish you were lying beside me?
Cause girl I miss you, yeah you’re always on my mind
You don’t want to be my friend but I still want you to be mine

So Karinne
When I think I’m getting better
Thoughts of you just creep right in
And I can feel the pressure, I feel you under my skin
So if this is what you wanted then I guess you fucking win

Yeah Karinne
You know I’ve never been one
To forget about the past it’s like I’m stuck in this rut
And it digs deep in me, I feel it in my gut
I find myself clinging to all the things that you love

I spend my nights watching Tarantino movies
And picturing you quote all your favorite lines
I’m wondering

Does your chest still get all heavy when we speak?
And do you ever lie down and wish you were lying beside me?
Cause girl I miss you, yeah you’re always on my mind
You don’t want to be my friend but I still want you to be mine

Well Karinne
I’m trying my hardest to move on just like you want me to do
But honestly I’m sorry cause I’m still in love with you
