Track Name: Need a Little Time
When I drive down this empty road
I'm thinkin' about all those things that you told
I'll be fine
I just need a little time

My windows are rolled down
Music is so loud
But I don't hear a sound
I'll be fine
I just need a little time

Go out for a walk, the cold creases my lungs
I light up my cigar
But I don't want it enough
I'll be fine
I just need a little time
Before I lose my mind

BRIDGE
Well I know I didn't mean
For this to happen
And yet it might
Then I go on back through the things that I told you
And then I know, deep down I know, I was right

I just need some piece of mind
To find myself with no one else
I'll be fine
I just need a little more
Just a little time
A little more time
I'll be fine
I just need a little more time
Track Name: Split Perspectives
If I were you I would tell myself that I am and wrong
If I were you I would tell myself that I shouldn't wait here for you
That is what I would do

If I were you I would leave here, go far away
Maybe the Moon
And If I were you I would sit across this table
Waiting for the truth
If I were you
If I were you

I'll understand when I see you again
I'll understand, you don't need me anymore
I'll be a man, you won't see me lost again
I'll understand. It's all good

If I were you I wouldn't know what to say to myself
If I were you I'd close the door on all of this
But I would still fly to the Moon
If I were you
If I were you I would tell myself that I am wrong
And If I were you I would tell myself that I shouldn't wait here for you
That is what I would do
That is what I would do

I'll understand when I see you again
I'll understand, you don't need me anymore
I'll be a man, you won't see me lost again
I'll be a man, you won't see me again
I'll understand
I'll understand
I'll understand
It's all good...
Track Name: Loudly Quiet
Trying to form words from my thoughts
And I don’t know how
And I feel so numb that everything is aching
The air could knock me down

But I’m still standing
I’m still standing here
But I’m still standing
I’m still standing here

Walking through puddles of snow
Winter glistens in my eye
And I wish that I could fall right through the ground beneath my feet
But then I whispered into my own ear

I’m still standing
I’m still standing here
I’m still breathing
I still breathe the air

Here I am
Hold my hand
Here I am
Hold my hand

But I’m still standing
Track Name: Get Your Mind Over It
Caught in Hell
Bleeding out
You hold my hand
While I scream and shout

That’s when it hit
Get your mind over it

Little lies
We tell ourselves
I was your man
There was nobody else

That’s when it hit
Get your mind over it

Awake in the dark
I cannot sleep
I see your face
It’s just starting back at me

That’s when it hit
Get your mind over it

Bridge

There is so
So much pain
I wanna feel it all
Let it simmer in my veins
Losing control
Let it all slip away

You explained it to me
So black and white
But I dug down deep
It’s never that cut and dried

That’s when it hit
Get your mind over it (x3)
Track Name: Drift Away
I walked on down to the river
But I only found a lake
And I drifted further with the current
Please don’t let me drift far away

The rain falls down from the pale sky
It sees just what it wants to see
It knows only what it knows
It’s just gonna fly with the breeze

So I walked on down to the river
But I only found a lake
And I drifted further with the current
Please don’t let me drift far away

People all around me walkin’
To wherever they need to be
And I’m trying to look at all their faces
But they’re just passin’ me by down the street

So I walked on down to the river
But I only found a lake
And I drifted further with the current
Please don’t let me drift far away

Then I headed in search of the ocean
But instead I found myself a sea
Well it took away some pain and confusion
And now the Sun may shine out over me

So I walked on down to the river
But I only found a lake
And I drifted further with the current
Please don’t let me drift far away

So I walked on down to the river
But I only found a lake
And I drifted further with the current
Please don’t let me drift far away

Please don’t let me drift far away
Please don’t let me drift far away
Please don’t let me drift far away
