Track Name: Drunk On A Saturday Night
It's another drunken night
In my best friend's garage
With twenty fucking people
Saying they're the
King of beer pong.
We'll separate the losers
From royalty. It's another stupid night
I'm so drunk I just can't see

This is
For all my best friends passed out
On the pool table to the couch
And every single space in between
1, 2, 3, 4

Please don't tell our girlfriends
Just what we did.
Shut your fucking phone off
So we can keep the night hid.
It's not a lie
If you can keep your mouth shut.
Take another shot
And just shut the fuck up.

It's a Saturday night
In the middle of town
Stay inside now
So the cops don't find out
And keep your drinks down
Just focus right now
And lean in for your chance
You can't take it back
And don't tell my girlfriend
That me and Blondie kissed
Out back by the pool
I might have had a drink or two
I might have gotten over you
Or just forgot that you exist
I'm sorry, but that opportunity
Only comes once every hundred years

For all my best friends passed out
On the pool table to the couch
And every single space in between
1, 2, 3, 4

Please don't tell our girlfriends
Just what we did.
Shut your fucking phone off
So we can keep the night hid.
It's not a lie
If you can keep your mouth shut.
Take another shot
And just shut the fuck up.
Track Name: Friends
I met you during winter and it
All fell in place.
We laughed and we cried
Died a little on the inside and
I found a home in you.
We smiled till the summer
When it all fell apart.
We lied or we tried and
Died a little on the inside and
I found love in you.

Goodbye my best friend
I'll see you at the end
All the roads lead back home
All the roads lead back to you
I'll meet you at the diner on a Saturday night
And we'll pick up where we left off
Where the sentence stopped
And our paths last crossed

We would walk arm in arm through the
City just getting
High and
Watching birds fly
Why couldn't we ever get that high
Tonight you stayed by my
Side when it all fell
Apart and climbed inside my head
Calmed the fear in me
I found a home in you

Goodbye my best friend
I'll see you at the end
All the roads lead back home
All the roads lead back to you
I'll meet you at the diner on a Saturday night
And we'll pick up where we left off
Where the sentence stopped
And our paths last crossed
I'll meet you at the diner on a Saturday night
Track Name: Hemingway
Your friend had a party on the fourth of July that I
Wasn't invited to, maybe we just weren't that good of
Friends, but you were, so I went along to sit around and
Have a few drinks while fireworks light up the sky
The party wasn't any good and even so we stayed until
Two in the morning watching all the dumb drunks
Sleep it off while we talked about Hemingway
I never found anyone who understood books like you do

I remember phone calls coming in at three AM
Looking for a friend to fix every problem he had caused
I know you just love him, but it's never that great, call it
Off and maybe find someone who cares about you
You know I'll love you and I know we are just friends
It's alright, I won't let you down, won't let you go home
To cry in your pillows and wish you were dead like your
Mother's friend who passed away late in the summer last year

You think you're alone, but i'll always be there
To pick you back up and kill all of your fear
Don't act surprised, it's just what friends do
You're rolling your eyes, guess this is my cue
You must still feel butterflies for him
But when you're alone, you'll be crying again

You think you're alone, but i'll always be there
To pick you back up and kill all of your fear
Don't act surprised, it's just what friends do
You're rolling your eyes, guess this is my cue
You must still feel butterflies for him
But when you're alone, you'll be crying again
Track Name: Forest (Part I)

Track Name: Forest (Part II)

Track Name: A Mistake
I thought it all got packed up when you left and
Traveled across the country to find your
Peace of mind, from time to time, you will
Regret that you keep all your feelings in your
Head, in your heart, on your wrists, on your sleeves and it's
Gone now because they don't care about a
Girl who was beaten, battered, and left in the
River to drown about a mile from your parent's house

Everyone learns from their
Worst mistakes
And no one's hanging on any
Word you say
But they all caught you in a
Lie you told to save
Everyone you cared about but
They all ran

Away from the trouble that you brought when you thought that you had
Found what you needed when it struck you in the middle of your
Chest like a bullet that was fired into your very soul
And now I can tell you what you ought to already know
Everyone lies when the need something that they can't
Get so they make it up just to find out if you
Bend or you break under stress, I digress baby
Don't you listen to these lines that I came to create

Everyone learns from their
Worst mistakes
And no one's hanging on any
Word you say
But they all caught you in a
Lie you told to save
Everyone you cared about but
They all ran away

Everyone learns from their
Worst mistakes
And no one's hanging on any
Word you say
But they all caught you in a
Lie you told to save
Everyone you cared about but
They all ran away
Track Name: A Letter
I wrote a letter to you
To explain my selfish pride
Apparently it wasn't good enough
To garner a reply
But the brick you sent
Through my window made it all clear
That you never wanted
To hear my name again
The hardest part to explain
Was the reason why I lied
Admittance of my failed
Attempts to make you proud
It looks like in the end
I'm another let down
It's too bad I couldn't
Warn you to stay away

Gone were those times that we shared
Gone was the time, we aren't there
Gone was the time, I don't care
Gone was the line, I got scared
Gone were those times that we shared
Gone was the time, I got scared

I gotta run away
I gotta get away from
You
I gotta run away
I gotta get away to my
Room
I gotta find a way
I gotta find a way to move
On
I just gotta keep my
I just gotta keep my
Strength
I hope that you find your way back to my
Room before we get too old or die
Just to see you smile one last time
I think it'd all be worth my time
Track Name: A Keepsake
Everything you had
Did you keep it in a box?
Was it safe there
Locked up in your own thoughts
Everyone you know
They tried their best to help
You know they don't see
In your head how you felt
They all said to run
But you couldn't get away
Don't ever look back
Get out before you stay
Now you're on the run
No one to keep you safe
Traded all in
For a soul that you can't save

All that you had
That you're trying to hold
Did it wither away like the melting snow?
All that you held
You held it so close
It withered away like the melting snow.
All that you kept you wanted to be gold
All that is golden can never stay
It chips and fades then it just goes away

I know you found love
Under an oak tree
Were you safe there?
Is he better than me?
Everyone you told
Offered you support
I stayed in at home
Laying on the front porch
I've told all my lines
Ran all my wells dry
Making new time
For chances I can't buy
I'm thinking again
Hemingway has grown old
I'm tired of this
And my coffee's gotten so cold
