Track Name: Dive Deeper
They always told me I was the one next in line
I've had it with "better luck next time"
This is it, no more waiting on the outside
This time I'll place my bets on the high tide
It's taking everything I've got not to just give up now
I could just walk away while I still know how
So thats it, it's over, take a bow

I'm gonna make my mark on something great
Get off the floor, there's no time to waste
This time it's not one in the same
I'm working on making myself a name

So dive deeper, just d-d-dive in,
This song is waiting for you.
The water's not so cold, you'll learn to swim just fine
But it's gonna take some time, your life is on the line

We're always making our own dreams in our minds
Because real life isn't everything I've been hoping to find
My life is a mess, I'm overwhelmed by stress, I'm ready for the best
Of what I can do for myself, my family and friends
It's time that my past to reaches a means to an end


So dive deeper, just d-d-dive in,
This song is waiting for you.
The water's not so cold, you'll learn to swim just fine
But it's gonna take some time, your life is on the line


I'll be right here until my lungs give out, until my heart caves in
Because these midnight dreams and movie scenes seem all to real to me.
I don't wanna be just a moment in time
So I won't let time pass me by

So dive deeper, just d-d-dive in,
This song is waiting for you.
The water's not so cold, you'll learn to swim just fine
But it's gonna take some time, It's gonna take some time
Track Name: Fire Exits
Searching for fire exits, which way should I go?
I've only got so long until the flames engulf me whole

You say you need space, well two can play that game
Back and forth until the end, when all I wanted was your heart to mend

Forget everything you once knew,
because the boy you needed to pull through
Just isn't here anymore, those memories are washed ashore
Forget all those late night calls, I won't be there to fix your withdrawals
Next time you throw water on a flame, make sure it's in fair game


Looking for trap doors
I wonder what I was put here for
Who am I trying to be? What do I need to see?
I can't make you believe, but you can't make me see what you see
In a deck of playing cards, darling -- you're not the queen of hearts.

Forget everything you once knew,
because the boy you needed to pull through
Just isn't here anymore, those memories are washed ashore
Forget all those late night calls, I won't be there to fix your withdrawals
Next time you throw water on a flame, make sure it's in fair game

You can't escape now, there's no escape route
Stuck in the same place for months at a time
You'll just fall back into your retrograde state of mind
And live on with that false sense of entitlement you've entitled upon yourself

Forget everything you once knew,
because the boy you needed to pull through
Just isn't here anymore, those memories are washed ashore
Forget all those late night calls, I won't be there to fix your withdrawals
Next time you throw water on a flame, make sure it's in fair game

I searched for fire exits, there was nowhere to go
I waited too long and the flames engulfed me whole
I'm left here now in the ashes of what was once a home,
I'll move on to the next house without your control
Track Name: Hold Me Close
Staring back at me with those big brown eyes
Burning a hole right through my soul
Not sure of the plans you're devising
Not sure if I wanna know

And one by one, you picked up all the broken pieces
Dissolving every wound, no room for faulty creases

I don't wanna let go, you're all I need to know
This michigan cold just freezes our bones
So I have just one request, hold me close

In the corner of my field of vision, my sense of misery went missin'
Forgetting the past, no turning back now
You don't know how to ride a bike, so I'll teach you how

You are the light I needed to see, you are the air I needed to breathe

I don't wanna let go, you're all I need to know
This michigan cold just freezes our bones
So I have just one request, hold me close

For every burning heartache, for all the burdens you've grown
I'll be there to wash away all the pain deep in your bones
I didn't invent the rainy day, but I've got the best umbrella
So jump in with no regrets, just jump in with no regrets.


I don't wanna let go, you're all I need to know
This michigan cold just freezes our bones
So I have just one request, hold me close
Track Name: In Your Eyes
It's hard to filter through this whirlwind of confusion
I'm trying to listen to what you're saying, but I'll just ignore you
I'll just ignore you again and again, push you farther back into my mind
I'll just ignore you again and again, I'll just ignore you again

The truth gleams in your eyes, there's no denying that
It's hard to think this will all be in our past tomorrow
All my promises were left bent or borrowed
Your hazel eyes aren't on my side anymore

I'm still in disbelief that what we once had is now just a memory
Maybe this is for the best, that's what you told me
I'm tired of all these petty fights, No one's ever wrong or right
I'll just ignore you again and again, I'll just ignore you again

The truth gleams in your eyes, there's no denying that
It's hard to think this will all be in our past tomorrow
All my promises were left bent or borrowed
Your hazel eyes aren't on my side anymore

I can feel it in my bones, I can feel it in my teeth
and everywhere we used to meet, I know you feel it too
From the corners of your lips to the top of your fingertips,
Please tell me we'll be alright, we'll be alright.
Track Name: Love & Loss
When will we ever be able to live with all this love and loss?
It's hard to believe all the heartache I've had to toss, to the side
The times I've watched my mother cry and all I could do was nothing
That gut wrenching feeling cannot be erased
I'm sick and tired of the same old routine, it all means nothing to me
I'm sick and tired, oh I'm tired

Will we ever figure it out? Oh, I don't know
Will ever figure this life out? Oh I don't know
All of these questions I have to ask, all of these answers left unsaid
Forget it if the fine print was torn, just fall into my arms until the morning

Wish I could find some motivation
The strength in my bones, body and toes
can't seem to find the connection now that you're gone
And I miss you more than ever, I can't say it's now or never


It's raining love and loss and I can't take it anymore
there's nothing but a car crash waiting for me outside my door

Will we ever figure it out? Oh, I don't know
Will ever figure this life out? Oh I don't know
All of these questions I have to ask, all of these answers left unsaid
Forget it if the fine print was torn, just fall into my arms until the morning
Track Name: Niagara Street
Your minutes are numbered, it's grown true through and through
Our expectations are interested in permanence
So live your dreams and not this awful disease

Step back, reality check
It's hard to stand up straight with the weight of the world on your chest
You'd do it over and over again until you break your back

I know I'll see you again
Distance, you were never a friend
So many boundaries we never crossed,
So many memories that will never be lost.
I know I'll see you again,
Distance, you were never a friend.

You lied to save yourself
To keep your balance you left your feelings on a shelf
Give this one more chance, I'll hit the ground and run
I swear this time I'll tear down the sun

You were the greatest man I ever knew
No one could ever measure up to you
I never got to let you know just what you mean to me
and for that, I'm truly sorry

As I walk through the valley in the shadow of death,
I know you are with me.
I will fear no evil, I will stand through the pain
All in honor of your name.

I know I'll see you again
Distance, you were never my friend
The best man I'd ever meet
Lived all the way over on niagara street.
