Before I Go 03:36
New town, old streets Running through a memory Just a small town boy Walking trough the noise Of Back Bay alley ways Alone by choice Long hair, shy eyes Looking round a crowded room He sits alone Another face nobody knows One day he’ll look back at how he’s grown With every friend that he has yet to know Before I go Take me round this town I used to know Let’s not think about tomorrow Take my hand and don’t you let it go Cause I don’t want want to be alone Before I go New friends, long drives New England highways on my mind Another night, another show Playing up and down the coast I don’t know what I’m gonna miss the most Thank you cause you made me feel at home Before I go Take me round this town I used to know Let’s not think about tomorrow Take my hand and don’t you let it go Cause I don’t want want to be alone Before I go You had the faith that he just couldn’t see And he started to believe He had the strength to chase another dream Before I go Don’t you cry cause I’ll be back on day I’ll remember you tomorrow Take my hand and don’t you let it go Cause I don’t want want to be alone Before I go New town, old streets Forever in my memories

Dragged myself out of bed once again Woke up sad and dry eyed Got places to be lots of things to do All in so little time I'm trying to keep up with the pace of a life Only passing me by And I give it my all But even that's not enough Theres 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? That 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 to much to handle 'Cause 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 I 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? That 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 And still I 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 Cause I can't be Superman There's always a limit to who I am I'm only human Don't you understand? That 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

Dressed in my cap and gown at 9 AM A family photograph on the patio Mom and dad are smiling by my side On graduation day I join the crowd in the early morning sun Among a sea of familiar faces Some I've for gotten and some I've seen for the first time On graduation day The last four years surely felt like a lifetime It seemed like this adventure would never end So many friendships come and gone And all these moments just the same But in my memories they'll stay Marching in to "Pomp and Circumstance" We take our seats from A to Z My family cheers as they call my name On graduation day Some will say today's the first day of the rest of your lives But I've been living and I still don't got a clue A part of me still holds on to what I knew Cause we're never truly ready to say goodbye The next four years are the single biggest mystery I'm where I need to be but I don't know where to go And what comes next is really anybody's guess But I'll keep holding on to hope Packed up the party favors and turned off the lights I give my bittersweet goodbyes School may be over but everything will change After graduation day After graduation day

That 03:36
Among the many thousand faces Chasing the same dream Everybody wants their moment Everybody wants to be seen Just a road of sacrifices For notoriety It’s race down to the bottom and algorithmic jealousy The spot lights and glamour The roaring twenties before the crash But what about the music? Do you really care about that? It’s rich kids game in every way From Nashville to LA Give my all into a dead end job Cause the music just doesn’t pay What’s it like to have the offense On a slanted playing field Maybe I wouldn’t be as depressed If only happiness payed my bills The class, the status A collection of Cadillacs Living life just making stacks But I don’t really care about that Cause I’ve learned success is only real When you define it by your own ideals It don’t matter if I don’t make it there Cause I never quit I just learned not to care There’s so many familiar faces They’ve always got my back My friends and family write the pages I frame the photographs I only see my name in lights On a dive bar marquee And if never make big, well That’s all right by me I’m just grateful for everything I have I guess I’m trying to say I only really care I only really care about that
