Car Rides 04:15
You pull up to our street corner We throw all our gear in back Tom looks at me and he calls shotgun As I think of all the fun that we will have Zipping down long Storrow drive Through those concrete tunnels and ramps We cross that big white bridge heading outbound As we join the crawling northward caravan We ride miles and miles Up and down 95 At the speed of light We ride into the night The New England highways On memories they stand So I can't wait To hit the road with you again Outside an Irish pub up in Portsmouth We climb back in after the show While the stereo is blasting "Water Buffaloes" But we're our own radio Tom Tells another Terrible Pun Amanda gives him that look again As I sit in the backseat thinking "that was really dumb" But this has only just begun We ride miles and miles Up and down 95 At the speed of light We ride into the night The New England highways On memories they stand So I can't wait To hit the road with you again So many memories were made inside this car We'd pour out our souls and we'd open up our hearts Through every moment All the laughter, every tear The love between these three best friends Will never disappear We ride miles and miles Up and down 95 At the speed of light We ride into the night The New England highways On memories they stand So I can't wait To ride miles and miles Up and down 95 At the speed of light We ride into the night The New England highways On memories they stand So I can't wait To hit the road with you again

Ship Names 03:17
Lately I've been feeling something's not quite right From the way you're eyes meet mine But your still trying to hide Dropping hints that your Looking for someone new It came out of the blue Everyone has caught on too Friends make ship names Send us off to somewhere Deep within their minds And their eyes Always subtly hinting at what Could be if I only felt same This friendship doesn't need another name Oh I know just how you feel I remember when I locked my feelings in a book Put "Mr. Brightside" on repeat These warm and fuzzy feel good thoughts seem bittersweet When you're dreaming of someone Who doesn't share your fantasy Friends make ship names Send us off to somewhere Deep within their minds And their eyes Always subtly hinting at what Could be if I only felt same This friendship doesn't need another name There's no need to apologize Sometimes your heart will try to take you for a ride And though I've thought over and through and trough and through But I just can't see me and you Friends we remain Sending off the notion That we're here to stay It's okay sometimes we fall hard into each other Nothing's changed But I'll never feel the same And this friendship doesn't need another name Oh this friendship doesn’t need another name

Three O' clock sitting on the bus Alone and kept to myself Kept my head held down while all around The other kids just screamed and yelled Walking through my old front door Dragging my red and sunken eyes Father asked what's wrong my son? I said I can't live with theses lies Then he said to me It happens to the best of us Take a look and turn around Sometimes we fly Sometimes we hit the ground It happens to the best of us Been down these roads before Now our paths may change But we're all searching for more It happens to the best of us Roaming ‘round those high school halls Always just a nervous wreck Awkward glances, bashful looks I’m told it’s all just in my head But no one really understood How I felt or so it seemed At least had a couple friends Who listened in with empathy And they said to me It happens to the best of us Take a look and turn around Sometimes we fly Sometimes we hit the ground It happens to the best of us Been down these roads before Now our paths may change But we're all searching for more It happens to the best of us It Seems the years have changed my fate As I step right off this stage Surrounded by friends that I care for would do anything for I've pushed so hard and through those tears So I don’t have to cry anymore It happens to the best of us Take a look and turn around Sometimes we fly Sometimes we hit the ground It happens to the best of us Been down these roads before Now our paths may change But we're all searching for more It happens to the best of us Now our paths may change But we're all searching for more

Superman 03:34
Dragged my self out of bed once again Woke up sad and dry eyed Got places to to be, lots of things to do All in so little time I'm trying too keep up with the pace of a life That's only passing me by I give it my all but even that's not enough There's only so hard I can try Cause I can't be Superman There's always a limit to who I am I'm only human Don't you understand I can't hold every hand Cause sometimes a hero needs saving I'm sorry that I just couldn't be The man that you wanted to see I've gotten so used to saying I'm fine When life's too much to handle But underneath this kind warm smile Lies a mind left in shambles I try to keep it in and keep it down Don't want to worry you with my troubles I try to be tough and try to be strong But it's so hard to do on my own Cause I can't be Superman There's always a limit to who I am I'm only human Don't you understand I can't hold every hand Cause sometimes a hero needs saving I'm sorry that I just couldn't be The man that you wanted to see But I still work hard to be more than another face in the crowd My thoughts linger in shadows And they only bring me down I wish I could just see past The parts that make up my sum Instead I find myself constantly questioning who the hell I've become I can't be Superman There's always a limit to who I am I'm only human Don't you understand I can't hold every hand Cause sometimes a hero needs saving I'm sorry that I just couldn't be The man that you wanted to see

You’re a beautiful daydream of a person Your smile is picture perfect I want you now But you don’t know how desperately You make me impatient, I can’t take it How I’m pinning for your sensation Just for tonight We both could share this fantasy I wanna see the silhouette of your body In the dark by the lights outside I wanna feel those beautiful arms wrapped around me As you turn off the lights Give me give me your love Give it to me all night Give me give me your all I know you’ll make me feel just right Cause you’ll boss me around Take me to town And turn my whole world upside down Give me give me your love Give it to me all night Cause you’re the boss tonight Through all the excitement I’m hesitating As I rush with Anticipation But you pull me in And calm my every nerve with your lips We move to the rhythm of our beating hearts My hand’s to your chest My head’s in your arms Kiss me again kiss me again Don’t hold back from me tonight I wanna feel your hands all over on my body When you strip it down just right I wanna feel those beautiful lips kiss me slowly Oh they can kiss me where they like Give me give me your love Give it to me all night Give me give me your all I know you’ll make me feel just right Cause you’ll boss me around Take me to town And turn my whole world upside down Give me give me your love Give it to me all night Cause you’re the boss tonight Your eyes keep me begging for more Bed sheets sprawled all around on the floor Scream my name till this night’s said and over I’m not a bad boy But tonight I’ll do bad things with you Give me give me your love Give it to me all night Give me give me your all I know you’ll make me feel just right Cause you’ll boss me around Take me to town And turn my whole world upside down Give me give me your love Give it to me all night Cause you’re the boss tonight

Misery Man 03:13
He's a country boy wearing city clothes Got cowboy boots kicking on his toes Spends his nights sipping on Knob Creek Blasting the new Luke Bryan CD Talks with hidden southern drawl Waves a star crossed flag that his daddy bought But is he what you want? He's got a new girl for every day of the week But says he's looking for love But he's so easy to read Another one comes And another one goes Only looking to get under their clothes Looks can be deceiving in his cool blue eyes Seems like he's got it all Got nothing to hide But soon you'll realize He'll only destroy you in the end He'll only string you along and play pretend There's only one thing on his mind With intentions that he hides Maybe it's time for a change of plan Cause I think you're only falling for a misery Man Lately I've been noticing We'll all be hanging around The two of you together you'd be talking up loud And you never leave together When you go to his bed But everyone can tell someone's been kissing his neck You call him "boy boy" to keep it on the down low Putting up a front but even you don’t know You tread a risky road But still I'm so oblivious You would think I could tell When all the pieces of the puzzle say you're under his spell I guess I'm blinded by affection Falling hard for him too Infatuation infiltrates my reasoning through But he can't love just the same but we'd hang and get drunk we'd be flirting away But still to you he sways He'll only destroy you in the end He'll only string you along and play pretend There's only one thing on his mind With intentions that he hides Maybe it's time for a change of plan Cause I think you're only falling for a misery Man It's the end of May And you're so heart broken A month time from you he's stolen I saw the writing on the wall far beyond all rumor I only wish that I had told you sooner He'll only destroy you in the end He'll only string you along and play pretend There's only one thing on his mind With intentions that he hides Maybe it's time for a change of plan Cause I think you're only falling for a misery Man Just another fuck boy Just another fuck boy Just another fuck boy Maybe it's time for a change of plan Cause I think you're only falling for a misery Man

Six A.M. she feels so cold Frozen stiff her eyes sown closed Listen for her heart beat But there's no pulse to hear Now I'm dashing for the phone Can someone save her soul? Running out the door Screaming loud into the sky As I beg and plead hanging on for a sign I see the cars pull up with their flashing red lights Their sirens cry Tears are falling Falling from my eyes Two P.M. she's rolled away Into the hearse, there she lays They found the pills she took to sleep for eternity And a letter held in hand Seems it all went as planned As they drive away All is silent no one makes a sound Don't know what to say But inside we all break down Mother holds me close as she walks me home But I can't hide Tears are falling Falling from my eyes So much promise so much hope All now lost never to grow old 13 years now torn away All once here only yesterday Friday morning dressed in black The crowd has gathered ‘round at last Forever in I'm my heart you'll reside As I say goodbye Tears are falling Falling from my eyes And tears are falling Falling from my eyes

Flipping through the photo albums Of my family's past Captured in photographs Captured in photographs I see young boy smiling Lost in a daydream Lately he's gone it seems Wonder what he sees? He's got his head in the stars And all he has is time No need to think of all the scars That'll one day fill his mind Looking back through time Through all these memories of mine So many moment's past Why did they have to move so fast? When I'm old and grown Living on my own When everything has changed One thing will remain The love within this picture frame Remember when I was thirteen Picking out my red guitar When will it take me far? When will it take me far? We chased the bright city sky line Playing out under the stars We were invincible So the story goes I see the faces Of everyone I've ever known Some forgotten and some still loved Within these pages they are sown Looking back through time Through all these memories of mine So many moment's past Why did they have to move so fast? When I'm old and grown Living on my own When everything has changed One thing will remain The love within this picture frame I walk these empty streets That I knew once in a memory under the light of that old lamp post It all feels so unknown They've all packed up and moved away And they said see you some sunny day Within this picture it's here we'll stay After our lives fade Looking back through time Through all these memories of mine So many moment's past Why did they have to move so fast? When I'm old and grown Living on my own When everything has changed One thing will remain The love within this picture frame Flipping into the future Let's fill the blank pages out Let's make them amazing now Let's make them amazing now

Homesick 03:45
Summer time has come To these city streets Bustling with people That I'll never meet I'm stuck in this apartment Just surrounded by the noise Sometimes I feel Its not my choice So lately I've been having My home town on my mind Five hours west On that small town county line A ways up a mountain On quiet suburban streets This place is always home to me I miss the hills I miss the sky I miss the silent country side I miss my street And I miss you guys Cause I've been homesick Only for a while And I'm home sick And I've been missing your smile I Think of those warm summer nights Hanging out in the street We'd run around the lawn While the neighbors were asleep Got every silly moment Tucked away in my camera roll It didn't feel so long ago Them autumn days would roll Right along with all the trees We’d rake up all the leaves And jump in so blissfully The pumpkin in the sun Is forever a memory You guys are always home to me I miss the hills I miss the sky I miss the silent country side I miss my street And I miss you guys Cause I've been homesick Only for a while And I'm home sick And I've been missing your smile I miss the hills I miss the sky I miss the silent country side I miss my street And I miss you guys Cause I've been homesick Only for a while And I'm home sick And I've been missing your smile I miss you I miss you Oh I miss you I miss you

Words don't come so easy When I have my heart in the clouds Cause last time it broke me And I've kept my feet on the ground I never thought I'd feel this way again For someone new But all I've seen for weeks Are you're eyes so ocean blue Cause I'm chasing the boy With the fire in his hair And a smile so sweet That I can't help but stare It's like you fell from the sky You're the perfect kind of guy I can't get you out of my mind Cause I'm lost in Your world And all I can see is Your smile in my words That I've tried to write to This song on my mind But I've only left you behind Now you're gone but I'm lost in Your world It's hard to believe That you're still my mystery It's all just a land of fantasy But I can't help but dream Of us lying in the grass by a tree in a pasture Till after dark We'd talk about the future and maybe you'd Kiss me under the stars Cause I’m chasing the boy With the fire in his hair And a smile so sweet That I can't help but stare It's like you fell from the sky You're the perfect kind of guy I can't get you out of my mind Cause I'm lost in Your world And all I can see is Your smile in my words That I've tried to write to This song on my mind But I've only left you behind You don't know who I am For all that I know maybe you're my perfect man And I keep on dreaming of What could have been If I only had taken a chance Now you're gone but I'm lost in Your world Standing at the edge of my comfort zone But you're on the other side They say that's where the magic lies Maybe I'll never know It's like the universe threw me a sign But I left with no reply But after all the words in this song are said and through Not a single note will find it's way back to you I'm still chasing the boy With the fire in his hair And a smile so sweet That I can't help but stare Guess I wasn't prepared Guess I wasn't all there But just know that I still care Cause I'm lost in Your world And all I can see is Your smile in my words That I've tried to write to This song on my mind But I've only left you behind You don't know who I am For all that I know maybe you're my perfect man And I keep on dreaming of What could have been If I only had taken a chance Now you're gone but I'm lost in Your world Could have been my perfect man If I only had taken a chance Now you're gone but I'm lost in Your world Now you're gone but I'm lost in Your world

Believe 04:04
Looking back to the summer I feel for you My heart was racing when I grabbed your hand I went to kiss you by the sea When I saw you look at me But the tide rolled out and I was stuck in the sand And I dug myself out As we drive home I wanted your love But now I know Your heart is in your hands I need to choose a different road But I don't want to fall in love I don't want to do it all again I don't want to dwell upon a memory Bring out my bad side looking for empathy But can I loose If I put my faith in someone new I want to believe in something I never felt I want to believe in you and nobody else December came and brought winds of change These hearts of ours met to melt in the snow I felt that I was set free When I saw you look at me It was perfect then but I turned to look back And I saw Waves crashing into the sand When I fell in love with my best friend These empty thoughts are getting old I have chosen a different a road But I don't want to fall in love I don't want to do it all again I don't want to dwell upon a memory Bring out my bad side looking for empathy But can I loose If I put my faith in someone new I want to believe in something I never felt I want to believe in you and nobody else Spring comes as snow melts away I realize now it's time to find my way Love is not something to settle on It's up to me to become strong And I will find a way To love someone new But I don't want to fall in love I don't want to do it all again I don't want to dwell upon a memory Bring out my bad side looking for empathy But can I loose If I put my faith in someone new I want to believe in something I never felt I want to believe in you and nobody else I want to believe in something I never felt I want to believe in you and nobody else

about

“The past few years of my life have been filled with unprecedented and intense amounts of musical and personal change, which to me is the very core of this album. Words alone cannot convey how excited I am to finally share these songs with y’all after writing and recording this project for nearly two years. So I’ll let the music speak for itself.
Thank you for listening”
