Track Name: Memory
Verse 1
Tell me what is real
Am I crazy for living in my head
Is it right to feel this way, dream this way
When we’re not even friends

Pre-chorus
Why is it so hard to let me hold your heart
I won’t take it far
When you’ve made your mark, find out who you are
Find out if it’s us

Chorus
And make our memory light up in this place so
Everyone can see what the angels can create
Beauty that we’ve made
Forces that won’t break
Love that never fades away

Verse 2
I gave you my heart
I didn’t know differently that’s what made us different baby
So take me to the start
And tell me how you’d forget me, when what we had was so unique

Chorus
And make our memory light up in this place so
Everyone can see what the angels can create
Beauty that we’ve made
Forces that won’t break
Love that never fades away

Bridge
If our promise was a lie
I’ve been waiting all this time
Will we make it out alive
If today we say goodbye

Chorus
And make our memory light up in this place so
Everyone can see what the angels can create
Beauty that we’ve made
Forces that won’t break
Love that never fades away

Outro
Away, Away
Track Name: Don't Feel a Thing
Verse 1
Baby we’re both going crazy
Losing ourselves to a song
Wind in our hair, and our minds unaware
Of the road that we’re driving along

Chorus
What do you want from me
I wasn’t made to bleed
Darling you dive so deep
But I don’t feel a thing

Verse 2
I like to answer with ‘maybe’
Knowing I won’t let you down
Promises made just to fill up a space
Are for people who don’t hang around
That’s why you won’t hang around

Chorus
What do you want from me
I wasn’t made to bleed
Darling you dive so deep
But I don’t feel a thing

Chorus 2
What will it take to see that you’re my everything?
Darling you dive so deep and I can hardly breathe
What will you want from me if I’m your everything?
What will it take to see that love is make believe?

Bridge
What do you want from me now love is make believe
Darling you dive so deep now I can hardly breathe
What will you want from me if I’m your everything?
Darling you dive so deep, now I don’t feel a thing

Verse 3
I only spoke to the mirror
Hoping I won’t let you down
Thought that I knew every secret and truth
So I threw all your love to the ground
That’s why you won’t hang around
Track Name: Rhymes
Verse 1
I can write a million songs reflecting on my thoughts
I can’t make a breakthrough if all these songs are yours
Every last confession has been trampled on the floor
Say you didn’t realize but I don’t care any more

Does it make me wise, writing all these rhymes about our life
Does it make me wise?

Verse 2
Questions need an answer, but a writer needs a source
My anticipation is a never-ending curse
I keep thinking that you’re doing life like we rehearsed,
Saying that you love me is a hollow choice of words

Chorus
You were all,
All and more
I’ll never know a love so gold and pure
Let me fall,
I would fall
To know you never loved me much at all
And does it make me wise if I’m still yours?

Bridge
Was it all the things, all the things we’d say?
All the talk without the game

What it all the things, all the things at stake?
All the unsupported claims

You have got a good thing going, take it ‘til the end
With some kind of strategy we’ll find ourselves again.

You have got a good thing going, take it ‘til the end.
Track Name: Try My Love
Verse 1
Say yes, don’t over think it
Since I’ve walked in, your eyes have been
Signalling your interest

Verse 2
I bet, you’re waiting on my first step
If I’m unclear you’ll disappear,
What a fragile romance

Chorus
And we’ll wait this through
The clock is ticking and its ten to two
Almost time to make a move
And when you do I’ll try my love on you

Verse 3
Your call,
(Let’s be original)
You wanna be original
(Not so traditional)
Life is conditional

This is not what I had planned,
Walking through a stranger’s land
Now my shoes are filled with sand
Let’s do this over again

Chorus
We’ll wait this through
The clock is ticking and it’s ten to two
Almost time to make a move and when you do I’ll try my love on you

Chorus 2
We’ll wait and see
The clock is ticking and it’s ten to three
You are everything I see
And tell me do you feel the same for me?

Bridge
And I still live in the past where love doesn’t last
This weight on my back is all that I have
You know where I’m at, I’m thankful for that
I’ll try my love on you

(I’ve been waiting)
I still live in the past where love doesn’t last
(You’ve been waiting)
This weight on my back it's all that I have

(I’ve been waiting)
You know where I’m at I’m thankful for that

(You’ve been waiting)
I’ll try my love

And we’ll wait and see
The clock is ticking and it’s ten to three
Don’t you know you’re everything I see
(You’re everything I see)

When the time is right
I’ll try my love on you
