Track Name: Wherever You Go
I used to have the sweetest dreams at night
because you used to be my lullaby.
Suddenly, you didn't want to sing to me.
Now my whole world's a nightmare
whether I'm awake or asleep.

I of course wish you the best wherever you go,
but I'll always miss that person that I used to know.

You used to be my telescope,
helping me find a shooting star when there was no hope.
Suddenly, every lens was shattered.
I could look for days on end, it wouldn't matter.


I of course wish you the best wherever you go,
but I'll always miss that person that I used to know.
Track Name: Fool's Gold
Once upon a time we talked of happily ever after,
and like gravity the words made me fall faster every day
and left me dizzy, completely blind, it didn't hit me
that every free fall ends the same.

Everything we had is like a pot of gold
nonexistent at the end of a rainbow.
It all seemed so real, it all seemed so perfect,
but it was just an illusion.
We're nonexistent at the end of a rainbow.

Flowers by my bed you gave me a long time ago,
now they just remind me you don't love me anymore.
Even though I know they're wilted,
can't get myself to throw them away.
Does every free fall end the same?

Everything we had is like a pot of gold
nonexistent at the end of a rainbow.
It all seemed so real, it all seemed so perfect,
but it was just an illusion.
We're nonexistent at the end of a rainbow.

No matter how far I go,
I don't find what I'm looking for.
I was chasing thin air and nothing more.

Everything we had is like a pot of gold
nonexistent at the end of a rainbow.
It all seemed so real, it all seemed so perfect,
but it was just an illusion.
We're nonexistent at the end of a rainbow.
Track Name: Beating Compass
You've got me under your spell;
It hasn't worked so well for me.
So I am flying south
for winter, summer, fall, and spring.
I'll set sail for the coast and let go
of this anchor I've been holding on to.
If I don't I'll drown;
you're pulling me under.

We're all born with a built-in beating compass,
no thought needed; you should just feel it.
We're all born with a built-in beating compass.

I'm swaying back and forth,
so determined to find my new due north.
Everyone around is telling me
that I am way off course.
But the voices inside my head don't agree.
They keep telling me....


We're all born with a built-in beating compass,
no thought needed; you should just feel it.
We're all born with a built-in beating compass.

I feel myself begin to fall between the cracks.
I've lost myself to something I know I'll regret.
Another face, forgotten names,
winding circles for a path.
I'll step aside and watch it slide,
swept in to the past.



We're all born with a built-in beating compass,
no thought needed; you should just feel it.
We're all born with a built-in beating compass.
Track Name: Twitterpated
You were my wake up call
I thought I'd seen it all
until you tore the blindfold from my eyes.
Now every step takes me to you,
there's nothing that I wouldn't do
just to keep you as mine.
I used to be so afraid of falling,
now I'm just dying to jump.
You came along and stole all my senses
and now I can't get enough.

Oh, I can't believe my eyes.
You make the world a paradise.
I can't believe I finally found the one.

You were my wake up call
I used to be so lost
until you became my compass.
Now I can connect the dots,
I'll follow you at any cost
because you're all I ever wanted.
I used to be so afraid of falling,
now I'm addicted to the rush.
You came along and stole all my senses,
and now I can't get enough.

Oh, I can't believe my eyes.
You make the world a paradise.
I can't believe I finally found the one.

Like a mirage in the distance,
I can't resist the way you make me feel.
When I look at you, it's too good to be true.
I've never felt something so real.

Oh, I can't believe my eyes.
You make the world a paradise.
I can't believe I finally found the one.
Track Name: Thanks To You
Give me a time machine but don't ask
if I would go forward or if I'd go back.
Nothing makes sense, but nonetheless,
I'm convinced
that I am who I am thanks to you.

It's hard to fall apart without a warning,
but if this is goodnight, then I will see you in the morning.
It's bittersweet; I try my best to feel complete.
Because I am who I am thanks to you.
I am who I am thanks to you.

They say a better place is where I'll find you,
and if I'm ever feeling low I'll know I'm right behind you.
Memories age but they will never fade
Because I am who I am thanks to you.
I am who I am thanks to you.
Track Name: My Third Strike (Acoustic)
As sure as the sun will rise
you made your way in to my
life had never been so sweet
as we fell head first in to our
dreams, hopes, and where we'd go,
we laughed at everything
we didn't know or care what they would say,
just that we had never felt this way
about anyone or anything.


I blinked once, I thought twice,
I watched you walk away,
my third strike.
If I'd known what I know now,
I'd make you stay some way some how.
Make you stay some way some how.

I live life day to day
trying to except the change.
I cling to every second glance
but it's quick sand.
I know I had my chance to treat you right,
now I'll never sleep at night
knowing that it's all my fault.
I can't believe I let you slip
right though my finger tips.


I blinked once, I thought twice,
I watched you walk away,
my third strike.
If I'd known what I know now,
I'd make you stay some way some how.
Make you stay some way some how.
