Track Name: Nothing But a Name
Of course I went crazy
you never told me straight
Suddenly erased me
Like nothing but a name

Was it so easy
To wipe it all away?
Turn around and make me,
Nothing but a name

Nothing but a name
Nothing but a name
Nothing but a name you never say

I should’ve been the poison
running through your veins
instead of just memory
nothing but a name

So I acted like a menace
saying what I could
to bring you to the bottom
and now you’re gone for good

And I’m nothing but a name
Nothing but a name
Nothing but a name you never say
I’m nothing but a name
Nothing but a name
Nothing but a name, and you’re just a face

Can’t kiss you
Can’t hold you
But I miss you
And I don’t even know you
Can’t kiss you
Can’t hold you
But I miss you
And I don’t even know you

Wanna know the worst thing?
It’s working like a charm
Now we’re only strangers
Who gave each other scars

And I’m nothing but a name
Nothing but a name
Nothing but a name you never say
I’m nothing but a name
Nothing but a name
Nothing but a name, and you’re just a face
Track Name: Alone + Alive
Alone and Alive

You said you needed time
Maybe I was just running behind
I fell apart when you fell back on him
He’ll never break your heart but you still won’t feel a thing

and when you lie awake at night, who do you see?
I’m still the glow that lets you float into a dream
But if you want 60 watts instead of a flame

Hey girl cut me out, if you never wanna fall this hard again
Girl lock it down, no risk of a broken heart
Hey girl I’ll get by, you need someone just to survive
I’d rather be alone and alive
Baby I’m alone and alive

Riding shaky feet
It’s like the ground is walking all over me
But even though I never felt so lost
At least I haven’t filled my bed to build these walls

so when you lie awake at night, who do you love?
You’re not the kind to be alright with good enough
But if you can’t take the chance on another mistake

Hey girl cut me out, if you never wanna fall this hard again
Girl lock it down, no risk of a broken heart
Hey girl I’ll get by, you need someone just to survive
I’d rather be alone and alive
Baby I’m alone and alive

I’m all about falling down and making mistakes

Hey girl cut me out, if you never wanna fall this hard again
Girl lock it down, no risk of a broken heart
Hey girl I’ll get by, you need someone just to survive
I’d rather be alone and singing
Hey girl cut me out, if you don’t wanna fall this hard again
Girl lock it down, no risk of a broken heart
Hey girl I’ll get by, you need someone just to survive
I’d rather be alone and alive
Baby I’m alone and alive
Track Name: Getting Through
You’re on my mind, by now I’m numb
Over thinking is overdone
My skin is cracked, my bones are dust
I’ll crumble down at the slightest touch

You pulled my soul into my skin
So making love made who I am
Now I’m lost, you’re good as new
I’ll never be over you
The best that I can get is getting through

We loved so deep, we laughed a lot
I guess sometimes that aint enough
You got out clean, you washed your hands
The first to leave gets to not look back

You pulled my soul into my skin
So making love made who I am
Now I’m lost, you’re good as new
I’ll never be over you
The best that I can get is getting through

I’ll never be over you
I’ll never be over you
The best that I can get
The best that I can get
Maybe all we get is getting through

Forest fires burn the leaves
Eat the bark and char the trees
In the soil, flowers grow
Getting through means letting go
Track Name: Bold
6 feet tall without an inch of control
Guess nobody really does
The ground keeps spinning and I’m sick to my soul
The ride has stopped, I can’t get off

I’m just a black sheep dressed up like a wolf
Guess that’s why my teeth aint sharp enough

I give up on being bold
I’m just barely staying afloat
I’m so tired of acting whole
Turn inside out and go for broke
Growing up’s such a dirty joke

Rocket engines on the soles of your shoes
Take you where you want to be
Problem is, it’s hard to find enough fuel
To make it more than twenty feet

We’re all just black sheep dressing up like wolves

Just give up on being bold
We’re just barely staying afloat
I’m so tired of acting whole
Turn inside out, and go for broke
Growing up’s such a dirty joke

I’m not bold, I’m just broke
Growing up’s such a dirty joke
