Track Name: Fall Asleep Instead
It’s been so long since we said goodbye
And the sun is setting low, low in the sky
I’ll be your friend, baby until the end

I know I’ll find you alone, alone one day
And when I see your face I’ll walk up and I’ll say
Why did I walk? Why did I walk this way?

Oh, baby don’t you leave me alone in this city for too long
Cuz I’ve got this old feeling that’s overwhelming me that you’re gone

Well, forget about me and what I have become
Oh, let me fall asleep and lay in my peace
What have we done? Where did this love come from

And I shudder when I hear my own voice in my own ears
Yeah, the irony is killing me, no I just can’t believe
That you regret the time when we first met

Oh, baby don’t you leave me alone in this city for too long
Cuz I’ve got this old feeling that’s overwhelming me that you’re gone

I remember when you said you’d lay awake in bed
And you thought this wouldn’t work so you’d fall asleep instead
Well I still dream that you know what this means

Oh, baby don’t you leave me alone in this city for too long
Cuz I’ve got this old feeling that’s overwhelming me that you’re gone

Oh, baby don’t you leave me alone in this city for too long
Cuz I’ve got this old feeling that’s overwhelming me that you’re gone
Track Name: Just A Way To Pass The Time
Sometimes I feel like I’m a sinner,
Like what I’m doing here just aint right
Trying to call myself a winner
When I’m only trying to swim the tide,
I’m only trying to survive

After traveling I get lonely
But I try to keep it off of my mind
Then I remember you’re the only
The only one that ever spoke my mind
Before I even tried

There always comes that day
When you ask yourself that question
Why is what I’m doing just a way to pass the time?

You’re packing up and moving on now
The weather knocked you down and sucked you dry
As for me, I’m headed home now
Time to pack it up and kiss you goodbye,
But there’s something in your eyes

They say that life is what happens
When you find yourself making plans
I hate the stinging satisfaction
When I pretend that I don’t understand,
Like I follow no command

There always comes that day
When you ask yourself that question
Why is what I’m doing just a way to pass the time?
Track Name: What It Meant To Me
I know and you know this wasn’t meant to be oh no
How could you know what, what it meant to me
I know and you know this wasn’t meant to be oh no
I don’t know that I could ever let you go

I said I’d watch over you and never leave you blue
And you said it’d be better now, now that I’m alone
I said I’d watch over you and never leave you blue
Don’t you lie to me, I wanna know the truth

It’s wearisome for me to see that you find joy in my empathy
So stay away and let me go and forget all that you have known
It’s wearisome for me to see that you find joy in my empathy
Cuz you know I don’t know any other way to be

I remember when we broke apart the skies they were turning dark
You left me here all alone to question all I have known
I remember when we broke apart the skies they were turning dark
Early in the evening late last June

Don’t you hit me again it reminds me of when
You told me how things for you have been
Before we met and all this began
And you told me I was the only one for you
