Track Name: Worn Out Ice Skates
She said,
“Craig I love you, but I can’t do this anymore. You’re too busy for me.
I can’t take the distance, take the missing, take the missed phone call, or wishing for a kiss once a month in Seattle

I told you that this would happen
I told you I couldn’t handle it
I told you what this would become
and now it has

It serves me right to prove you wrong
It serves me right to prove you wrong
Seattle lights in the backseat of your Jeep only prove me wrong

Goodbye, I love you
I guess that’s all.”
Track Name: Not Running Away
It's like the seasons don't exist, because nothing ever changes. And my own indecision is the only thing I can blame for it. Well, I've been burning bridges to protect what I've been building. The less you know the better for my new beginnings.

She's the feeling you get when the cop lights come on in your rear-view mirror. That painful reflection on decisions made. I just gotta get out of here, until it fades from my memory.

So, I'm flying out of the country to see what I've been missing. To see if I'll be missing the same things that I left behind me. Then, I'll go back to Indiana to see my friends and family. Will it still feel like Home knowing they've moved on without me?

It's the feeling you get when the cop lights come on in your rear-view mirror. The painful reflection on decisions made, Oh, I've just gotta get out of here. Until it fades from my memory.

I'm not running away. I'm trying to get someplace.
I know to you it must all just look the same.
I'm not running away. I'm trying to get someplace.
You think you know me, but you don't even know me at all.

I'm not running away. I'm trying to get somewhere.
Track Name: Snowflake
Get as close, get as close as you can get
But don’t get any expectations
I feel underdressed in my best outfit when I’m only trying fit in
Get exposed get exposed get exposure
To feel closer
You’ve gotta get more likes
Now that I’m older, I’ve realized
We spend more life in lines than on rollercoaster rides

Get a job, get a dream, get a trophy
We’re all snowflakes, and this is freezing rain.
This Seattle skin just won't keep hit in
And there I go complainin’

Cause we all blame our hurt on someone the next one reminds us of
And we all hide our guilt in privilege from people we'll never even meet
We all blame our hurt on someone
But there's always something missing

Get as close get as close as you can get
No expectations.
And there I go complainin’ again

Cause we all blame our hurt on someone the next one reminds us of
And we all hide our guilt in privilege from people we'll never even meet
We all blame our hurt on someone
But there's always something missing
Track Name: Again Again (feat Lakyn Bury)
She said,
"Let's have a drink. Let me in. Tell me your dreams. Where have you been? Cauz I've been fuckin lonely. I'm smiling at violins, the saddest songs, the saddest instruments that I've ever heard.
I've learned: we don't need anyone to tell us we can't."

"I've got my glasses on an unshaven face, I've taken up the taste of smoking when I'm in unknown places. I'm stepping back. I'm speeding up. I'm makin plans all based on luck, and so far they've worked.
I've learned: If you don't settle your Past, you'll only settle in the Future.
and I'm not taking anything back."

I slept with my contacts in. They turned both my eyes red. And though, I try to be different, I do the same things the same things over and over again.

I've been wandering the World end to end searching for connection and learning what it isn't. I've been wondering if there's a difference between attention and affection and which is worse to fake?
I've learned: You can't expect an answer if you don't understand the questions.

I guess I haven't learned my lesson.
Cauz I slept with my contacts in again. They turned both my eyes red. And though, I try to be different, I do the same things over and over again.

She said,
"Marry me. Marry me young. You're not missin out on anyone.
Marry me. Marry me young. Let me be your someone."

I said,
"We'd be married, but you're drunk. And I've still got lessons to learn."
Track Name: Neverland
Second star on the right and straight on til morning. I hope I live my Life half as bright as You. It's gonna be alright. This is a time of mourning. The sun will always rise after the night and we'll move on.

But I don't wanna forget. I feel like I'm buried in "thinking of yous" and "wish you wells". She said, "it's all God's plan" but that doesn't seem to help. Some things just change everything.

I never could sit still. But now it makes me feel guilty. I hope everything I've seen balances everything that I've missed.

And I don't wanna forget that Life is precious. I cherish every memory of us. But every picture doesn't feel like it's enough. Some things just change everything.

Wherever you are, I hope you're dancing in the stupid way you always would. Out on that star, I hope you're doing all those things you said you wanted to..

But I don't wanna forget. It feels like I'm buried in "thinking of yous" and "wish you wells". She said, "it's all God's plan" but that never seems to help. Some things just change everything.

Second star on the right and straight on til morning. I hope I live my Life half as bright as You.
