Track Name: Don't Look My Way
Eager to start, afraid to begin
I let the old feelings out as the new ones sink in
Ready to fight, willing to negotiate
They said "Leave it to him", so I left it to fate
They said "Leave it to him", so I left it too

I've never been wise, no that just isn't me
But I've almost escaped all this lingering naivete
And I may be a fool, but I'll stay who I am
'Cause it's even more foolish to stop and start over again

You'll never break me down
You'll never make me learn
Oh no, no

I, I won't accept the norm,
You can't make me conform
That just isn't me
I'm all I'll ever be
I'm all you'll ever see when you look my way
So do me a favor and don't look my way

Sometimes I'm wrong, but I try to be right
And I'd say that I'm different if saying that wasn't so trite
So I keep to myself, I guess that's all I can do
I won't spend my whole life tryna satisfy the likes of you
I won't spend one more minute tryna satisfy

You'll never break me down
You'll never make me learn
Oh no, no

I, I won't accept the norm,
You can't make me conform
That just isn't me
I'm all I'll ever be
I'm all you'll ever see when you look my way
So do me a favor and don't look my way
Track Name: Perfectly Decent
Well it's been such a perfectly decent year
The haze has gone away and now the road is clear
We just have to continue this path that we're on
And lately I've been thinking so thoughtfully
Been making such big plans so subtly
We just have to impress them before they're all gone

And I've been in such a perfectly decent mood
Forgot about my problems and the feelings that ensued I-
Don't even remember why I was so down
And lately I've been acting so selfishly
Been giving out to others so selflessly
I just have to keep from turning myself around

Well it's been such a perfectly decent year
The haze has gone away and now the road is clear
We just have to impress yous before you're all gone
Track Name: New Beginnings
To yous my friends: Can you believe that we have come this far just to say it all ends here and now?
To yous my friends: I can't believe we've become who we are just to say it all ends here and now.

We have to go, and all of us know
That things can never be the same
And new beginnings lead the way

Do yous recall all of the laughs we shared and the times we had? Now you say that never meant a thing.
I still recall saying I'd be there through the good and bad. Now you say that never meant a thing.

Everything's strange now that everything's changed
And things can never be the same
And new beginnings lead the way
Things can never be the same
And new beginnings lead the way

End of the line, and we mean it this time
That things can never be the same
And new beginnings lead the way

To yous my friends: Can yous believe that we have come this far just to say it all ends here and now?
Track Name: Go Write Back To Me
Dear Girl,
I can't get your face out of my mind.
You've got me searching for the words that I've never been likely to find.
I need you more now than I ever really hoped that I would.

Dear Girl,
What am I to do when we're apart?
I need you close to me now that you're so awfully close to my heart.
I love you more now than I ever really thought that I could,

I have wrote to you day after day,
I can't wait to hear what you will say, well, my heart's not so strong,
So write back quickly.
I'm out of paper and my pen's out of ink,
Now all I do is just sit here and think, well, I wrote you this song,
Won't you go write back to me?

Dear Girl,
I feel so alone when you're not here.
I sit alone in this house just waiting for you to appear.
I know we fight but in the end all I want is your touch.

Dear Girl,
We don't have the time that we deserve,
So know that I'll drop all my plans for you, baby you always come first.
I love you more everyday I hope it's not too much.

I have wrote to you day after day,
I can't wait to hear what you will say, well, my heart's not so strong,
So write back quickly.
I'm out of paper and my pen's out of ink,
Now all I do is just sit here and think, well, I wrote you this song,
Won't you go write back to me?
I wrote you this song,
Won't you go write back to me?
Track Name: 20/20
You wake up and you hate that you have to
All you see is grey but you still see the whole day through
Though everything is wrong, you still play along like it isn't
Your smile's wide but your eyes aren't so bright
20/20 vision but there's nothing in sight
And though they swear it gets better, you could swear that it won't

Well nothing ever felt so empty before
You've never longed for something more
And you've never ever felt so goddamn worthless
And it's never been so hard to prove that you aren't

You lay down now cause it's hard to stand tall
You used to be so strong but now you crumble and fall
Now everything's like hell, yeah everything just keeps getting worse
You listen well but you don't know what you've heard
20/20 vision but the tears have it blurred
And though they promise you wonders, you only want just one thing

You've never ever felt so empty before
You've never longed for something more
And you've never ever felt so goddamn worthless
And it's never been so hard to prove that you aren't

Let go of everything that's holding you back
Remember everything you've got and forget what you lack
You're perfect to someone
You're perfect as you (x3)
