Track Name: Chasing Lines
I tried reaching out to you
But you didn't seem to understand
That i would have done anything to talk to you.

And honestly, I'm sick to death
Of these thoughts racing through me head
When I'm trying to settle down.

The future is coming,
We are all getting older.
Please say something,
I swear I'll move closer.

All these things i never said are hanging like a raincloud over my head
All these times I've chased your lines, your replies running through my head.
I can think of better things to do with my time.

I'm avoiding nights out on the town
Cause they just bring me down
There's paint on your faces and i'm sure

That if you weren't so drunk, you probably wouldn't be talking to me.

Looks like our futures come
We've all gotten older
You said said something, and remember,
I moved closer.

All these things i never said are raining from my chest
All these times I've chased your lines, your replies running through my head.
I guess it's better than being alone.

I spent my time, so many nights, trying to be the one you needed by your side. I'm sorry for being so high-maintainence, i know that i must have tested your patience but the way i was feeling was so intense and i've got to let it all go.
Track Name: Is It Too Late?
s it too late to tell you I'm sorry? I'm sorry i can't change...
I'm not the careful girl you met in the summer but you're not the same boy either.
Oh love, remember the days we spent indoors?
With Scrubs and pizza and deep little talks?
Or the time we spent playing records in your room?
The turntable would spin, and our hearts would swoon...

You were the first place I could rest my head
And lay my body in a strangers bed tell me baby,
Did you forget all those feelings we once shared?

Is it too late to tell you I'm sorry? I'm sorry i can't change...
I'm not the careful girl you met in the summer but you're not the same boy either.
You had a habit of telling white lies,
Was i really like the stars that filled your skies?
Now I'll cut the rope around your throat,
But the guilt will still make you choke.

I wanna talk about your tattoos and the ink beneath your skin,
Those marks will never leave your body until you die
And you become nothing.

Is it too late to tell you I'm sorry? I'm sorry i can't change...
I'm not the careful girl you met in the summer but you're not the same boy either.
You're Ex-Ex Girlfriends called you a cheater, she said you did it with me.
I called you God and they tore that heart from me
I called you God and they tore me apart from the seams.

Now we dont talk.
Am i really the one to blame?
I'm sure my words haven't made any difference,
But i still think of you when it rains.
Track Name: Be Strong
Oh it was just last night
we layed looking at stars so bright
and in that moment, it was all i needed
but like so many before
whats gonna happen to this potential i hold?
truth is a disguise that is so deceiving


where’d you go? (this is like the ocean)

oh I was sinking in salt water
like i was pulled into the sea
i was washed out from the harbour
all my colours exploding
i picked up the pieces
you shattered of my mind
if this is the end,
then i’l be strong tonight

i need to drop these obsessions
it’s just not wise
dreaming of the unattainable
putting realism out of sight
i say just be a good person
and the world will be good to you
find something that you love
and swear that you’ll se it through

where’d you go? now i think i know.

you gave up on all this
now what do you show for it?
you’re stuck in your own mess
and i have no time for it

I used to be callous
Now I'm clearing my name
I'm sorry for hurting you
But just know I've changed

oh I was sinking in salt water
like i was pulled into the sea
i was washed out from the harbour
all my colours exploding
i picked up the pieces
you shattered of my mind
if this is the end,
then i’l be strong tonight
Track Name: Punk Rock Woke Me Up
put me in a room with a view, let the lights go down
see people on stage that i love, playing my favourite sounds
surrounded by people like me makes me feel alright
it chases the ghosts away that haunt my lonelier nights


punk rock woke me up
and its the only thing to get me off the ground when I’ve had enough
and i don’t know where I’m heading
but its safe to be betting
that il find my way back home
to another punk rock show

in my room on my own, cut off from everyone
turn my headphone up loud playing my favourite songs
we all have the same plan, to get the hell out of town
we grew up and got out and your still stuck around

punk rock woke me up
and its the only thing to get me off the ground when I’ve had enough
and i don’t know where I’m heading
but its safe to be betting
that il find my way back home
to another punk rock show

in my head i hold this certainty
that living this way is who i’m meant to be
look down on my all you want but i still feel alive
i still heal the sick, i'm you’re heroine in disguise.
Track Name: Paint
I’m singing out
you’re hearing what i’ve been thinking about
i used to be so quiet
now i can’t seem to shut my mouth
i painted my self in colours
now i’ll take them off
stripped down my identity
now this is all that I’ve got


you look at me like ‘she thinks she’s so cool’
but if it means putting stuff up my nose,
then i never want to be like you
oh i know the way you are; you drink go out lay down
with another boy every night, and that aint cool
so don’t put me down


hey there blue eyes, have you noticed me stare
sorry if i creep you out, it must just be something thats in the air
well i like looking at your face, it puts me in a daze
but it hurts to see you sad when you can’t even speak babe


i had a best friend, and we both loved peter pan
but everyones gotta grow up and thats something i struggle to understand
And he would tell me tink ‘stop living in your head’
i’ve gotta turn this off cause it all wrong when your still sleeping in her bed

i went out to see his band that night
i hid away out of his sight
i hated to see him in the spotlight knowing i wasn’t on his mind
never mind, we’ll be okay,
lets just paint ourselves back together again.
