Track Name: Nothing Goes Wrong
[Verse 1]
It doesn't matter how much that you tell me
It doesn't really mean it's true
When you say a change in attitude is all I need
It feels like luck has just as much to do

[Pre-Chorus]
I can't remember last time luck was on my side
It seems more like we've been perfect strangers forever
And every time I see the turning of the tide
It's not long before it changes back with the weather

[Chorus]
So what is it like when nothing goes wrong?
How does it feel when you don't have to wait so long?
'Cause I've never been a lucky man
So what is it like when it goes according to plan?

[Verse 2]
You can't say we get what we deserve
We both know karma isn't real
You can't say anything I haven't heard
None of it will change the way I feel

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]
Track Name: No, Don't Go
[Verse 1]
(No, don't go)
You left as soon a you came here
(No, don't go)
We barely said our hellos
(No, don't go)
Did you leave because of me?
(No, don't go)
Did I stare, did I come too close?

[Chorus]
Could you just stay a little longer?
Because it feels like you belong here
I skipped a beat when you arrived
But then you left without goodbyes
No, don't go
No, don't go

[Verse 2]
(No, don't go)
Thought you went for a smoke but then you never came back
(No, don't go)
I hoped you would stay just a little while more
(No, don't go)
I would speak more but I don't know what to say
(No, don't go)
But talk about anything, I'd like to hear it

[Chorus]

No, don't go
No, don't go

[Chorus]
Track Name: Autumn (Come Quickly)
[Verse 1]
Autumn, come quickly
The summer's been far too long and I want it to end
Autumn, come quickly
I don't want another day spent in the stifling heat again

[Pre-chorus]
If summer's for lovers, then there's nothing in it for me
So shorten the days, let me cool myself off in the breeze

[Chorus]
There goes the summer and here comes the fall
And I say I hardly miss summer at all
[2x]

[Verse 2]
Autumn, come quickly
All my friends left this city and I've hardly seen the rest
Autumn, come quickly
When outside is just 16 degrees is when it feels the best
Track Name: Don't Let Me Fall for You
[Verse 1]
You caught my eye long before we met
You look around wearing a face that I can't forget
But I don't want to feel it, I don't want to feel again
Every time I see you my heart skips a beat
And I want our paths to cross so you can talk to me
But I don't want to feel it, I don't want to feel again
And I wish that you could promise me

[Chorus]
Don't let me fall for you
Unless you fall for me too
Don't let me fall for you
'Cause I won't know what to do

[Verse 2]
I like your hair, I like the way you dress
It leaves me on my best days feeling like a mess
But I don't want a heartbreak, I don't want a heartbreak again
I'd never say these things right to your face
I'm too scared that you would tell me just to stay away
And I don't want the heartbreak, I don't want the heartbreak again
But I still wish you could promise me

[Chorus]

Don't let me fall for you
Don't let me fall for you
And I wish that you could promise me

[Chorus]

Don't let me fall for you
You'd just break my heart in two
Don't let me fall for you
Don't make that fear come true
Track Name: Left Me in the Dark
[Verse 1]
It's been over a year now and I still feel the same
It doesn't hurt any less now, I still feel the pain
The night I cried over you when you showed your lover in a picture for all to see is still the worst night of my life
You didn't tell me anything about him even though I made it clear that I wanted you and it feels like a lie

[Chorus]
You left me in the dark
You left me in the dark
I still can't forget the way you left me in the dark
I still can't forgive the way you left me in the dark

[Verse 2]
I never thought I could hate you but I guess you found a way
They say time heals all wounds but I still have much to say
About the way you led me on by never telling me you didn't feel the same with no apologies and said you don't owe me a thing
Just when I thought I found someone who'd feel the same as me one day and I'd be happy for the first time, you just left me wandering, and

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I hope I never see those big hazel-green eyes again
Because they'll only remind me never to try again, 'cause

[Chorus]
Track Name: Dance in the Rain
[Verse 1]
I saw your face as you were standing there
I felt it glow like a full moon against a blackened sky
We barely met, I doubt you even care
But when you speak I always feel a little high
This wouldn't be the first time, I've felt this way before
And every time I tried it all went wrong
It doesn't need to be love, I just want something more
I just want a reason for a happy song, so

[Chorus]
Will you dance in the rain with me
On a downtown sidewalk under midnight streetlights?
Will you dance in the rain with me?
Pretend we know the moves and we might get something right

[Verse 2]
The times I see you are so few and far between
And even then I'm too afraid to say what I wanted to
But your hand in mine is all that I want to see
All I want to do is spend my time with you
I don't really know if we would even last
But at least we won't be alone anymore
I wish that I could find the courage to ask
If this is what you've been waiting for

[Chorus]

Will you dance in the rain with me? Oh [X4]
Track Name: But
I want to move out but I don't have the money
And I want a bigger house but my parents are too cheap
And I want to move to a bigger city someday but I don't know how I'll get there
And I want some independence but I don't know if I'll survive

Sometimes I want to talk more but I always say what I don't mean
And I want my friends to like me but they all like me the least
And I wish I had a girlfriend but I'm undesirable
I want someone to love me but I'm too hard to love

And I want better equipment but I have to save for school
And I want to drop my shitty job but no one wants to hire me
And I want to sell an album but no one's going to buy it
And I want to do more shows but my band's not always free
And I want to change the world but I'm far from fortune and fame
And I want to be remembered but no one even knows my name
Track Name: Confused with You
When you're around
I feel unsound
You speak to me and I feel so alive
But I'm afraid to look into your eyes
I don't know how you see me
I don't know how I see you

You smile at me
I nearly freeze
You seem to like me in your company
But I'm not sure exactly what it means
I don't know how you see me
I don't know how I see you

I don't know how you see me
I don't know how I see you

What do I feel besides confusion?
And do you feel it too?
What do I feel besides confusion?
And can I be confused with you?
Track Name: Mind Tour
Look into the chaos of my mind
It might disturb you, what you find
You may think I've almost crossed the line

Look at these obsessions in my head
Some may fade away when they are fed
Others may not stop until I'm dead

Listen to the words I try to say
They don't ever come out the right way
They may be the end of me someday

Look at all these people around me
They all know exactly how to be
While I struggle to act properly
Track Name: Take Your Time
Take your time as you say goodbye
Take your time as you say goodbye
Where has all the time gone now?
Where has all the time gone now?

Take your time as you say goodbye
Take your time as you say goodbye
And I hope we'll meet again
And I hope we'll meet again

All good things must have an end
All good things must have an end

Take your time
Take your time
