Track Name: I'll Survive
Now you can open your eyes or let it slip away,
Are you still dreaming of your yesterday
Or what you still have to say,

The night is young for everybody else,
They say it’s something you should want,
As if violence or tragedy could ever get you off,

Now the night is frozen and I can’t feel my arms,
Wrapped around the empty spaces in which there’s no telling right from wrong.

I’ll survive by running fast away from the light,
In your eyes, in your eyes, I’ve seen the darkest skies,
And when you’ve lost all sight of what you’re leaving behind,
Only then, only then, will you see stars at night.

They’re telling me to walk away,
But there’s this ghost of passing judgement telling me that I should stay,

Is this my punishment?
I just can’t circumvent,
These bad habits, I can’t shake them,
They’re leaving me for dead, I hate them.

I’ll survive by running fast away from the light,
In your eyes, in your eyes, I’ve seen the darkest skies,
And when you’ve lost all sight of what you’re leaving behind,
Only then, only then, will you see stars at night.

And when the sun comes up, I’ll be by your side,
It’s never felt so right to not know where we are,

I know that there’s a place where we’ll all be safe,
I can see it in my head,
I’ll find that place one day.
But till then,

I’ll survive by running fast away from the light,
In your eyes, in your eyes, I’ve seen the darkest skies,
And when you’ve lost all sight of what you’re leaving behind,
Only then, only then, will you see stars at night.

You’ll see the stars at night,
You’ll see the stars at night.
Track Name: Too Close for Comfort
Lyrics

What goes through your mind when you see my face?
I know you hear me calling but pretend that I don't exist.
So close to trusting you,
So close to letting you in.
There is no justice where you stand,
Now this is where the story ends.

I could hear your voice like the waves crashing in,
Every line you rehearsed was getting under my skin.
There is a place for someone on the inside.
Don't you wish that you had tried,
Don't you wish that you had tried?

One day you will find that you're on your own,
You soon will realize the time has come to reap what you've sewn.
These walls are stained,
You won't be coming back here again.
My soul is caged,
Bar the doors and lock these chains.

I could hear your voice like the waves crashing in,
Every line you rehearsed was getting under my skin.
There is a place for someone on the inside.
Don't you wish that you had tried,
Don't you wish that you had tried?

Please take me out of my hands,
it's getting harder to stand on my own, stand on my own.
Now that I'm breathing again, I'll never let you back in.
Breathing alone, breathing on my own.

I could hear your voice like the waves crashing in,
Every line you rehearsed...

I could hear your voice like the waves crashing in,
Every line you rehearsed was getting under my skin.
There is a place for someone on the inside.
Don't you wish that you had tried,
Don't you wish that you had tried?
Track Name: Take Cover
Now, now the storm is coming
to lift the houses and carry them away
destroy them in the air and drop them
back down again
I'll have gone from world to room
to breathing air to nothing
and you'll have gone back and forth
pretending there was something

So this is the end
no more cause for disease
no more dark brown eyes or secret drives
to where you want me to be
every sound just turns to thunder
everywhere I go it rains
and this shadow stands beside me
have you heard we share a name?

Turn off all the lights
make it happen, make it right
it's not yet a lie
but come so close it's getting hard to deny
when you touch what you can't see
and you don't say what you mean
things we're never perfect but god dammit

They've been close than this, before
and the night looks so dark in your eyes
It's getting cold
so I'll be on my way

Because now, now the storm is coming
to spread my ashes and take me to my grave
I know you're better off without me
you'll be ok
I wish I could say the same for myself, for myself
but still you go, back and forth
pretending you have one good reason to stay

Now this is the end
I feel the walls are closing in
so don't ignore this, the sky is calm
my bones are shaking because the storm is coming now

Every single moment
of every situation will define our history
it's complicated and selfish but just understand
You will never live if you keep dwelling on what could have been
