Lyrics

Can't believe it's not better

Written By: Jacob Dunning

I'm not aware, about the things I state on my mind.

And I'm not scared,to blurt out all about the times we spent,
walking home in the dark after 3am with the street lights on.

I wanna know what its like,

Chorus:

But, I've been stuck here all by myself
and lately I've been someone else

I'm not fucking around for attention
I'm not blowing out of proportion, regarding my situation.

I'll try to change, I said to myself for the third time today.
People want fame and the fortune of getting to sit on the back porch in
your own yard, with a cold beverage in your hand.
I wanna know what it's like, but

Chorus:

But, I've been stuck here all by myself
and lately I've been someone else

I'm not fucking around for attention
I'm not blowing out of proportion, regarding my situation.

I've been stuck here all by myself

I've been stuck here all by myself

I've been stuck here all by myself

I've been stuck here all by myself

I've been stuck here all by myself
Chorus:

But, I've been stuck here all by myself
and lately I've been someone else

I'm not fucking around for attention
I'm not blowing out of proportion, regarding my situation.

Written By: Jacob Dunning

I woke up one morning and realized to myself
there's a part of me missing, in my life.

And then your face apeared in my thoughts
and I thought to myself: "I need to get lost
in your mind" Oh what a time.

Chorus

Cause I need something more in my life.
Something to help me sleep at night.
But it's your love that I crave
and it keeps growing more and more everyday!

Hit the street that one day
With a coffee in my hand.
I looked to my right and I said:
"what did I see that night, a girl
with her head held down past her shoulders"
And then you came to me and I lost myself
completely. I had that same dream and it
became my reality.

Chorus

Cause I need something more in my life.
Something to help me sleep at night.
But it's your love that I crave
and it keeps growing more and more everyday!

Chorus

Cause I need something more in my life.
Something to help me sleep at night.
But it's your love that I crave
and it keeps growing more and more everyday!

Physical Love

Written By: Jacob Dunning

Why is it every time I get a good chance, I fuck it up?
Why is it every time she takes off my pants, I lose my trust?
And why is it while in search for that connection, I'm only
shown physical love?
I crave something to shut me up.

I've only ever been scared of him once.
It's not him that I'm scared of, it's the
thought of not doing enough
Not enough looking up.
Or figuring out, if it's the lust i am feeling
ir the fuss I'm dealing with, but

Now that I'm bleeding out, it will happen again
and now that I'm older, I fucking tend to forget.

Why is it every time I get a good chance, I fuck it up?
Why is it every time she takes off my pants, I lose my trust?
And why is it while in search for that connection, I'm only
shown physical love?
I crave something to shut me up.

Not enough nights, but too many fights
recreating what's right in my life
Not enough melodies capturing her memories,
but too much insanity warping my reality
but i am gone.

Now that I'm bleeding out, it will happen again
and now that i'm older, I fucking tend to forget.

Why is it every time I get a good chance, I fuck it up?
Why is it every time she takes off my pants, I lose my trust?
And why is it while in search for that connection, I'm only
shown physical love?
I crave something to shut me up.

Take Me Home

Written By: Alex Hamnett

I went down south to take that trip of mine.
My heads so full, it drips down my spine.
Now we're all feeling twisted, all strung out
and lost in Kansas

Woah, woah, woah

Your heart is a heavy burden on mine
Sing those notes of a time gone by.
All dressed up in that white dress, dressed to impress
Why wont you just lay me to rest.

Now I need someone to take me home
Now I need someone to take me home
Now I need someone to take me home
Now I need someone to take me home

What I Miss

Written By: Jacob Dunning

I miss the summer and the breeze.
I miss walking down lake shore under the trees.
I miss smoking on the beach.
I miss having a cold beer between my knees.

But sometimes, my world gets a little colder
and sometimes my stories are told more
But I do, really miss the music. And I know
you don't want to lose it.

I miss, waiting for the show to start
I miss, being unfairly treated and torn apart.

But it's okay and I'm on my way.
I'll be back someday, for more fun and games

But sometimes, my world gets a little colder
and sometimes my stories are told more
But I do, really miss the music. And I know
you don't want to lose it.

I miss, waiting for the show to start
I miss, being unfairly treated and torn apart.

But sometimes, my world gets a little colder
and sometimes my stories are told more
But I do, really miss the music. And I know
you don't want to lose it.

I miss, waiting for the show to start
I miss, being unfairly treated and torn apart.
