Track Name: Let Me Down
You stay up late again and burn your regrets
I never learn from my mistakes
maybe I know better than to open up my mouth again and ruin it all.

Dare i dare you to tell me the truth
you can be honest for once
is love an accurate description if it disappears like it wasn't there at all?

It's something you never liked to talk about
I love you but time is running out

We were so selfish and stupid that day
our clothes were thoroughly soaked
the rain was wetter then I bet and I feel better when I get to see you.

You be the monster and I'll be the ghost
you see right through me anyway
a sign I guess it's hard to miss that no one gets how hard it is to be you.

It's something you never liked to talk about
I love you but time is running out
I love you but it's torture just waiting around
I love you but you really let me down

you really let me down.
Track Name: Temporary
You're just going through a phase
wipe that stupid smirk off of your face
does the world look brand new?
Do you still remember your favorite food?
'Cause i do.

Do you have to go?
It's bittersweet to know i never knew you
this feeling must be temporary.

Fuck your dad for leaving you
Fuck your mom for going crazy too
You're a victim you're a witch
Try to drown you but it's useless.
It's useless.

Do you have to go?
It's bittersweet to know i never knew you
this feeling must be temporary

Do you have to go?
It's bittersweet to know i never knew you
Your love was only temporary.
Track Name: Earlybird
Tried to be an earlybird
Truthfully I tried to make it work
Usually mornings make me sick
It's not easy to admit it

That I've been missing in part for a long time
But what's left is here to stay

Tried to be an earlybird
Every sunrise song just came out slurred
Overthought and overspent
Some things aren't worth the commitment

I've been missing in part for a long time
But what's left is here to stay
I've been leaving, the feeling comes in waves
But what's left is here to stay

But what's left is here to stay.
Track Name: I Won't Pick Up
We've been separating
For months by now
Always second place so
What's different now?

Oh can I ask who's speaking?
Your voice is rough
You're drifting further backwards
I'll keep in touch

There's no point in fighting
We're worlds apart
there's no sense in hiding
Your plastic heart

Oh can I ask who's speaking
We talk too much
You'll call again tomorrow
I won't pick up

Don't bother I won't pick up.
