Track Name: Near The End
I fell under the covers
Singing myself to sleep
If I keep dreaming
Could this be the reality?
I will be famous, we will be perfect
And I won't wake up
You can tattoo the memory
It's good enough

But I knew it was always near the end
And I need you now, I feel you now
I knew it was always near the end
And I feel you now, I'm breaking down
And I won't sleep, I'll keep
Bringing myself to life
I knew it was always near the end and it's fine
To save yourself

I walk backwards
and I need a minute to count my steps
To break from these emotions
Leaving me our of breath
If I wait for the morning light
I'll sew myself up inside
It takes less time to heal all of my wounds
Knowing that I tried

But I knew it was always near the end
And I need you now, I feel you now
I knew it was always near the end
And I feel you now, I'm breaking down
And I I won't sleep, I'll keep
Bringing myself to life
I knew it was always near the end and it's fine
To save yourself

And I knew
it was coming to an end
And I feel you now...

But I knew it was always near the end
And I need you now, I feel you now
I knew it was always near the end
And I feel you now, I'm breaking down
And I I won't sleep, I'll keep
Bringing myself to life
I knew it was always near the end and it's fine
Hell, I knew it was always near the end and it's fine
To save yourself
Track Name: Peggy Sue
Well we went down to the edge of town
I saw her dancing with no shoes
And I walked right up and took her hand
I had nothing to lose
It was something I had dreamt about
And now was coming true
I would go and write a Country song
Instead of singing Blues

But before the night is over
I'll make sure that I get through
Cause everybody knows about Peggy Sue

Well we went out on a Friday night
And left the week behind
Got together with some friends of mine
And drank til the end of the night
Didn't care for any destination
The Social was our time
We could show up right before last call
And we'd do just fine

But before the night is over
I'll make sure that I get through
Cause everybody knows about Peggy Sue
Cause everybody knows about Peggy Sue

Oh Peggy, what you do to me
When you're not here
I drive in my mind for hours
Til the coast is clear
I've got half an hour left before they
Turn the lights back on
And if you're not going with me then
Call when you get home

Oh how did I end up here? Now it's clear...

But before the night is over
You're gonna have to decide
Will you take a chance girl
Oh I swear you'll enjoy the ride
But before the night is over
I'm gonna make sweet love to you
And then you'll know I want you Peggy Sue

Cause everybody knows about Peggy Sue
Cause everybody knows about Peggy Sue
Cause everybody knows about Peggy Sue
Cause everybody knows about me and you
Track Name: Unravelled
You're the fear I can't escape
All my time has gona to waste
It seems that this is make believe
Rip the thread that holds me up
Take what's yours
and leave the rest behind
You'll be surprised what you find

Cause I've been waiting for so long
Where do I belong?
I don't really need you no more
I don't wanna need you no more
I know these nights just pass me by
Buried them inside
I don't really need you no more
I don't wanna need you no more

And you are the lungs without the air
I'm your patient in repair it's true
I'm becoming unglued
No one lives without regrets
Honesty put to the test you'll see
It gets the best of me

Cause I've been waiting for so long
Where do I belong?
I don't really need you no more
I don't wanna need you no more
I know these nights just pass me by
Buried them inside
I don't really need you no more
I don't wanna need you no more

You cannot lose
You're undone
You cannot lose
You're undone

Cause I've been waiting for so long
Where do I belong?
I don't really need you no more
I don't wanna need you no more
I know these nights just pass me by
Buried them inside
I don't really need you no more
I don't wanna need you no more
Track Name: Holding On
Cold hearted believers
Greatest of deceivers
Fatally attracted
Don't let me drift away
Sleep through the weekend
Silently distant
Hear my confession
And don't look back

I can't wait to disappear
Knowing I may never feel
I won't choke on these words
Cause I need to believe
That you're holding on

The king of all excuses
His worries are useless
Just say I'm all you want and
I'll lay my armor down
Who shot the messanger?
Burn in your atmosphere
Questions unanswered
Give me a sign
And I'll escape tonight

I can't wait to disappear
Knowing I may never feel
I won't choke on these words
Cause I need to believe
That you're holding on
Holding on
Cause I need to believe
That you're holding on
Holding on
Cause I need to believe

Will you believe me?
you believe me
I'm lost at sea
but I'm almost home...
Wait for me

Cause I can't wait to disappear
Knowing I may never feel
I won't choke on these words
Cause I need to believe
That you're holding on
Holding on
Cause I need to believe
That you're holding on
Holding on
Cause I need to believe

Will you believe me?
I'm almost home
Track Name: High Hopes
I sit back for a minute and wait my turn
Take a deep breath and I watch it burn
With hope
And the fire could've died out long ago
But the more you fall, the more you grow
With hope
Yeah she works all night just to stay alive
Been dreaming big her entire life
I hope she's right
You've gotta keep on moving...

With high hopes
This is the only road I know
I'm trying to get by
With high hopes
And land my feet back on the ground
Cause there's no way I'm gonna give up now

I've got change in my pocket
My heart on the line
Another doubt
A friend of mine again
Time after time
When the fear shows up
A little too fast
Every lesson learned
Becomes the past
I know it's hard to look down
With 300 days gone and 65 more
Another year washes up on the shore
You've gotta keep on moving...

With high hopes
This is the only road I know
I'm trying to get by
With high hopes
And land my feet back on the ground
Cause there's no way I'm gonna give up now

Not gonna give up now
Not gonna give up now

Cuase I tasted fire
The need to burn brighter
There's no escaping you
When push comes to shove
It's never enough
Til I see you shining through
You've got me circling

With high hopes
This is the only life I know
I'm trying
I'm trying

With high hopes
This is the only road I know
I'm trying to get by
With high hopes
And land my feet back on the ground
Cause there's no way I'm gonna give up now

You've got me hanging on your hopes
You've got me tangled up in ropes
And I will find a way somehow
I've come this far so feet don't fail me now
Track Name: Time Square
I've been walking down endless roads
Trying to find my way back home
But tonight is different
Something's missing
Its buried in these bones
Light me up like a cigarette
Lost what was innocent
I watch the sky catch fire
And the sidewalks come alive
I'm standing outside
Tell me its too late
I don't wanna go...

Tonight is dark
And I don't wanna lose
I don't wanna lost you again
Tonight is dark
And i don't wanna lose you again
Because...

The city sleeps when you're not here
Streets are empty, clouds appear
Broken hearts meet shattered mirrors
The lights go out in Time Square

I feel held up in
this one room apartment
A four wall tragedy
And the sirens ringing through
Distant memories
Hope this letter
Finds its way somehow

Tonight is dark
And I don't wanna lose
I don't wanna lost you again
Tonight is dark
And i don't wanna lose you again
Because...

The city sleeps when you're not here
Streets are empty, clouds appear
Broken hearts meet shattered mirrors
The lights go out in Time Square

When the lights come on
And the dust has settled
You can find me again
I was right here all along
And your shadows
Still dance in my room
And your so close
I can feel you move
Every footstep
Keeping me awake
But there's some ghost you can't escape

The city sleeps and you're not here
Streets are empty, clouds appear
Broken hearts meet shattered mirrors
The lights go out and...
The city sleeps when you're not here
Streets are empty, clouds appear
Broken hearts meet shattered mirrors
The lights go out in Time Square
The lights go out in Time Square
The lights go out in Time Square
