Track Name: Take Me to the Time
Rose gold cheeks, with a smile that makes me weak
I met her by a chance encounter
I guess that's how the story goes
Distance burns a fire underneath my feet
She said she's going up into the North
And all I have is only twenty weeks

Just take me to the time where I lost my mind
Just put your hand in mine and we'll be alright

I want to say it's love, but I don't know what that is
And the last time I said it was love, she went and
Vanished right into the mist
I don't know how, but every word she speaks is gold
And I'm not fond of growing up
But i'd be fine with growing old with you

Just take me to the time where I lost my mind
Just put your hand in mine and we'll be alright

And oh, that's just how the story goes
But now, there's nothing left to show

Just take me to the time where I lost my mind
Just put your hand in mine and we'll be alright
Track Name: Trying to be Okay
This love found us — snarling like a pack of wolves.
Deadlines and schedules, tender hearts and "I love you's"
Yes, you're leaving; you said it wasn't yours to choose.
She wants to move on, why drain the blood out from a bruise?

And I tell myself I'lll live for better days
But the best thing in my life is walking away

Choices, test runs — what else could we ever do?
There's just two options: love or leave, it's up to you.
My greatest fear is we'll be like we never were
You'll be alright but for myself, I'm not so sure.

And I tell myself she's here, but her body ain't.
And I relapse and I get carried away

I'm trying to be okay with everything
But the truth is, I'm not
Track Name: Friends
All of my old pens ran out of ink
So I threw them all out and
Just like my friends, I'd like to think
They moved on to somewhere else
Or someone else, I guess that
I don't care anymore

My shadow's racing up the hill, it's just caught up with me.
Ego's pinned me down and I don't think I can breathe.
My friends are getting older, but I'm not changing.
My friends are getting older, but I can't change, I can only see.

Everything I had came from a hand
That now I've disrespected bad
I'm so damn inconsiderate, but that's just
Why I start again
That's why I've got nothing but
Fresh green ahead of me

My shadow's racing up the hill, it's just caught up with me.
Ego's pinned me down and I don't think I can breathe.
My friends are getting older, but I'm not changing.
My friends are getting older, but I can't change, I can only see.

I beat myself, but I don't think you could see
I wish everything was different, but maybe that's just me
My friends are getting older, but I'm not changing.
My friends are getting older, but I can't change, I can only see.

My friends are getting older, but I'm not changing.
My friends are getting older but I can't change, I can only see.
Track Name: What Happens Next
Autumn comes and I can barely breathe
The lover of my life ripped from underneath
I tell my dad, "I'm trying the best I can"
I'm on the cusp of becoming my own band
And now comes the part, that we so badly want to forget
'Cos when she's gone, I just don't know what'll happen next
So what happens next?

Eighteen doesn't speak, it only screams.
I'm growing up and I don't know what to think
Do as you're told, and you better not object
Fall into line, well, this line is just a mess
I look around, and see the faces of those I love
Growing up means leaving
That's exactly what it does

Pick apart my future and tell me there'll never be anything left
Tell me I'm a failure if I don't comply and be "just like the rest"
I am so afraid of whatever might happen next
But it's okay to be afraid
Of what happens next

Little boy moves up to a bigger town
"You better learn to swim or else you'll drown"
"New York or Nashville, doesn't matter where you land"
It's getting hard to feel okay again

So scared of disappointing all the people that I do respect
I wanna show my parents that I'm alright, and I'm one of the best
I am so afraid of whatever might happen next
But it's okay to be afraid
Of what happens next

It's okay to be afraid.
