Kids 03:02
Long nights and hard days Regrets and mistakes The choices we make We lived harder than we ever did There were problems but We were just kids, we didn’t mean it We didn’t know what we did Oh we were just kids No panic attacks Moments we could relax The way your heart tracks through love All the memories that you’re gonna leave That you could still chase down All your dreams Kids... we didn’t mean it We didn’t know what we did Oh we were just kids Kids... we didn’t mean it We didn’t care what we did Oh we were just kids Oh you’re gonna be just fine Yeah you’re gonna do it, do it Oh you’re gonna need some time Yeah you’re goin’ through it, through it Oh you’re gonna be just fine Yeah you’re gonna do it, do it Oh you’re gonna need some time Yeah you’re goin’ through it, through it Long nights and hard days Kids...we didn’t mean it We didn’t know what we did Oh we were just kids Kids... we didn’t mean it We didn’t care what we did Oh we were just kids

I think it’s time we got away So don’t keep me waiting We’ll be ghosts inside a frame Forever waving If I’m lost along the way Will you keep me straight edge We’ve got miles and miles for days Where did the time go? I want my name back I tried to love you But I lost track Why do mountains Melt into meadows? So many questions I need to know I can’t leave it alone No I can’t leave it alone Set out in the afterglow Under painted skies Lost you in the chemicals That trailed behind Why don’t real colours show When it’s dark? Is grey matter all we are? Where did the time go? I want my name back I tried to love you But I just lost track Why do valleys Turn to volcanoes? So many questions I need to know I just can’t leave it alone No I can’t leave it alone When I was younger I used to see clearer Now I’m out of focus When I look in the mirror Why are diamonds Cut from destruction? There’s too much pressure I just can’t function Without a lifeline Without some answers What am I doing? When will I ever track down the reasons? Where do I begin? So many questions I’m losing hope I can’t leave it alone No I can’t leave it alone No I can’t leave it alone No I can’t leave it alone I can’t leave it alone

Diamonds 03:47
Diamonds in the rough Didn’t search hard enough Took too long for me to dig in When I caught your eye I didn’t mean to call out But I thought I must be dreaming All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you You… Diamonds in the rough Didn’t try hard enough Took too long for me to see it Did I dull your shine All the times I cut you down I believed you and I could save it All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you In the morning I wake up And think of you And when I close my eyes It’s all that I can do In the morning I wake up And think of you Always, always, always All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted was you All I wanted... All I wanted... Was you

There’s need to panic Make no mistake The harder that I tried The more I had to wait Too many holdups So much red tape It felt like living in a permanent delay My friends they told me You’ll find it soon A theory that was sound But had a lack of proof But all that static Led me to you I never knew What they were going on about I never knew What they were going on about There’s no short answers No easy fix A string of hypotheticals that never fit Too many roadblocks Not well equipped The worry that your heart might not exist My friends they told me You’ll find it soon A promise that went over Like a lead balloon But all that nonsense led me to you I always figured you were out there But I had my doubts The more that I looked on the brightside The more I burned out You’ll know it when you see it But ‘til I met you I never knew What they were going on about I never knew What they were going on about I never knew What they were going on about I always figured you were out there But I had my doubts The more that I looked on the brightside The more I burned out You’ll know it when you see it But ‘til I met you I never knew What they were going on about I never knew What they were going on about I never knew What they were going on about I never knew Oh, I never knew What they were going on about

Better 03:16
I don’t know why The airport reminds me of you ‘Cause we never flew together But when I’m standing in those lines I think of when you said forever And I love you in that state of mind And I thought we’d brave the weather But whether or not it all would have worked out fine I still wish that we were better We were better That we were better I miss you when the calendar changes Stacks and rows of empty boxes But a date’s not a date if it’s not with you It’s just sequential nonsense And I miss the nights when you were mine And I thought we’d grow together But whether or not it all would have worked out alright I still wish that we were better We were better That we were better Oh that we were better That we were better If you asked me Given the chance Would I take it To go back when We were happy And were still friends I would tell you the answer’s yes I’m not saying That if we did We’d be different We were just kids But I’d do it all again I’d go back for you I miss the nights when you were mine And the days we were forever But whether or not it all would have worked out fine I still wish that we were better We were better That we were better Oh that we were better That we were That we were That we were better

That 03:25
That I held you close That you didn’t go That I didn’t drown The embers of you And left us in smoke That I loved you with all that I had That I held you up and not held you back That a simple word could show you the truth That someday again it would be me and you That I didn’t wait That I made you stay That I didn’t write My promise in sand That just washed away That I loved you with all that I had That I held you up and not held you back That a simple line could show you the truth That someday again it would be me and you That I held you close That you didn’t go That I let you know That I wish you’d come home That I loved you with all that I had That I held you up and not held you back That a simple song could show you the truth That someday again it would be me and you Me and you Oh me and you Me and you Me and you
7.
Cannonball 03:08
If I were a cannonball I’d build up my speed Fly my way above it all Cross over the seas If I were the ocean floor I’d roll with the tide Wash my way up on every shore To make sure you were mine And I don’t know what it is Yeah there’s something about you There’s something about you There’s nothing I can do There something about you If I were a fallen tree I would make a sound Carve us into poetry And leave it on the ground Use what’s left to build a boat And sail out on the waves The thought of you keeps me afloat In endless different ways And I don’t know what it is Yeah there’s something about you There’s something about you There’s nothing I can do There something about you Oh and I don’t know what it is Yeah there’s something about you There’s something about you There’s nothing I can do There something about you

I’ve got everything I need Emptiness and gasoline Enough to fill the miles between The place I last saw you Wondering what you might be doing Where you went the day that you left I could wait another lifetime But there’s no other you No matter how far I drive Caught between these dotted lines I go back to when you were mine Do you go there too? Once in a while Once in a while Do you ever think of me Every once in a while Tell myself to nevermind But I go back from time to time To when forty steps and six street lights Could lead me back to you No I never turned in our keys I still carry them around with me The locks have changed and so have we But I can’t move on from you Once in a while Once in a while I’ve got everything I need But do you ever think of me Every once in a while Every once in a while I’ve got everything I need But do you ever think of me Every once in a while Every once in a while I’ve got everything I need But do you ever think of me Yeah, once in a while Every once in a while I’ve got everything I need But do you ever think of me Yeah, once in a while

All In 03:14
I think about it all the time That any given moment Could be the one that changed your life I didn’t know who you were When I went to sleep last night But since I saw you I don’t Recall what that was ever like Shouting from the rooftops Calling on you On you to be coming round quick Ain’t no time for full stops Commas will do For you Yeah you got me all in You really got me all in ‘Til you I didn’t know the way it felt To take a chance on your heart And not fold the cards you’re dealt Betting on my good luck Calling on you On you To be coming round quick Even if the odds say We won’t make it through Oh you Yeah you’ve got me all in You really got me all in You know you’ve got me all in You really got me all in How could a second glance Turn my world upside down The way you did? Love at first sight exists Even if it don’t work out You’re worth the risk I think about it all the time How any given moment Could be the one that changed your life Oh yeah you got me all in You really got me all in Yeah you got me all in You know you got me all in My dear yeah you got me all in You got me all in You got me all in You know you got me all in You really got me all in

I wish I would have told you what I’d done When we were on fire We were on fire When we were in love Drowning under waves I couldn’t stop I tried to stay down I wanted to stay down But I came back up Oh and then you caught me with the right look I should have told you then I felt you in my lungs When we were young When we were on fire We were on fire Before I was numb Oh and then you caught me with the right hook I should have told you then There’s no coming back from this No point wondering what if Oh it’s just the way it is There’s no coming back from this Back from this I wish I would have saw What you’d become When we had grown older Before I felt colder Damn when you were young Oh and then you caught me with the right look I should have told you then And then you caught me with a right hook I should have told you then There’s no coming back from this No point wondering what if Oh it’s just the way it is There’s no coming back from this Back from this No point wondering what if ‘Cause it makes no difference Love it’s just the way it is There’s no coming back from this Back from this And then you caught me with the right look I should have told you then And then you caught me with a right hook I should have told you then And then you caught me with the right look I should have told you then And then you caught me with a right hook And I knew There’s no coming back from this No point wondering what if Oh it’s just the way it is There’s no coming back from this Back from this

Scars 02:45
When I fall I fall hard When I leave I leave scars Before anything real can start I tear it apart When I saw you from across the bar A Death Cab tee and eyes like stars Your tiny voice left me disarmed I took you to heart When I cut I cut deep When I break I break free Half in half out of everything Don’t know what I need But the second you came into view I felt magic in a mundane room Out of thin air I fell for you Nothing I could do Was always back and forth And calling it quits I never knew until the day we met How good it could get How good it could get How good it could get How good it could get When I’m gone I stay gone When I hide I stay lost But when I didn’t seek to sabotage I knew I was caught Was always back and forth and calling it quits I had another thing coming with you I guess Done being up and down and phoning it in I never knew until the day we met How good it could get How good it could get How good it could get How good it could get When I fall I fall hard When I leave I leave scars Before I could tear us apart I took you to heart

Heaven sent When I see you I thank God we met I imagine what we could have been If I told you what you really meant I wish that you saw me like that That you, you knew what we could have Tell me something or there’s no going back I wish that you saw me like that From a dream It’s like an angel right in front of me I imagine just how good we’d be But we’re only just good friends it seems I guess But I wish that you saw me like that That you, you knew what we could have Tell me something or there’s no going back I wish that you saw me like that Sometimes I wish That I’d get drunk And call you and confess That all at once The words spilled out And there’s no going back But if I did And there was silence On the other end I’d know what it meant I wish that you saw me like that That you, you knew what we could have Tell me something or there’s no going back I wish that you saw me like that I wish that you saw me like that That you, you knew what we could have Tell me something or there’s no going back I wish that you saw me like that
