Lyrics

Running

Written By: jesse Young

Somewhere along the way, things began to change
But all I hear from you, is how they've stayed the same
Have you ever wondered, maybe it's not me?
It's just one of many things that you can't see

Why are we living life this way?
When we both know that we're not ok

I tried to give it time and hope that it'd work out
The more that I stay calm, the more you scream and shout
We're off and on so often, it's hard to say what's real
I guess I'll do the right thing and say what we both feel

Why are we living life this way?
When we both know that we're not ok
We're running scared, running tired but mostly
We're just running out of time
Why do we pretend we're doing fine?

I guess we should end it, before this goes too far
Time just seems so wasted, I don't know who we are

Why are we living life this way?
When we both know, that we're not ok
We're running scared, running tired but mostly
We're just running out of time
Why do we pretend we're doing fine?

Shattered

Written By: Jesse Young

I thought when time was standing still
How could this get better
But now I know you played me from the start
Young love is foolish at it's core
But I thought ours was stronger
And I was shocked to hear you say goodbye

This can't work if you're not in it
All that's left is shattered pieces
You were wrong to ever let me go

How'd I ignore all of the signs
You played your part convincing
I never would have guessed that things weren't right
Those days they seemed so happy
Now your just a fleeting memory
I hope regret keeps you awake at night

This can't work if you're not in it
All that's left is shattered pieces
You were wrong to ever let me go
I'm still here and holding steady
Make your move and I'll be ready
You were wrong to ever let me go

You screwed up, but I'm to blame
Finally I can see
I'm just one of heartbreak casualties

This didn't work cause you're not in it
All that's left is shattered pieces
You were wrong to ever let me go
I'm still here and holding steady
I've moved on I'm gone already
You were wrong to ever let me go

If You Go

Written By: Jesse Young

I wasn't looking but I couldn't help but see you
I tried to breathe but you took it all away
You talked me up and I hoped you wouldn't notice
That I'm not as cool as the guy you saw on stage

It took a while but I finally made it happen
I heard you thought I just wanted to be friends
It's just that I had never been so nervous
And all I kept thinking, was how you'd never stay

If you go, I'll never be the same
There's something in your heart
and it's telling you to stay
How can I just stand here and watch this slip away?
You may not love me now,
but I promise that you will someday

I know I'm not what you were thinking
I came along now I'm standing in your way
You wanted palm trees, movie stars and freedom
You made me fall in love, what else can I say

It wouldn’t be that hard
To let this end before it starts
But you won’t see, all that this can be
If you only put your trust in someday
