Track Name: Last Hope / Lost Hope
I’m not afraid, to take this leap of faith. I’m not a fool. Unless none of this is true. I know you’re somewhere, but how do I know you’re listening? So take it, take away my pain. Take it all, take it all away. I don’t want to feel anything at all. You’ll keep me safe, or so they say. Should I believe? Will you decieve? I know you’re somewhere, but how do I know you’re listening? So take it, take away my pain. Take it all, take it all away. I don’t want to feel anything at all. So take it, take away my pain. Take it all, take it all away. I don’t want to feel anything at all.
Track Name: Slow Motion
My life is in slow-motion. I feel like I’m barely alive (barely alive).My heart is need in of, something to ignite (Something to ignite). Will I ever be alright? Will I ever feel the same? This emptiness in my soul, will it ever be filled again? Stop and let me talk, listen to me for once. You’re not the only one, who’s been having second thoughts. Stop and let me talk, listen to me for once. You’re not the only one, who’s been having second thoughts. My life is in slow-motion, I feel like I’m losing my mind (losing my mind). I’m out of breath, I’m dizzy and we’re running out of time. Out of site, out of mind. But I was wasting my timeWe were wasting our time. Out of site, out of mind. But I was wasting my time. We were wasting our time.
Track Name: I'll Never Be The Same
I’m just trying to survive, in this moment suspended in time. Learning to be alone again, i leave everything behind. This voice inside my head, keeps repeating everything you said. I’m in need of a brand new start. It’s alright you can keep my heart. I’ll never be the same! All these words, all these thoughts, my voice is screaming your name. From the top of my lungs, I swear I’ll never be the same. Lost in words, Lost in thoughts, my voice is screaming your name. From the top of my lungs, I swear I’ll never be the same. On and on, these voices inside my head, won’t shut down, they repeat everything you said.

I just want to forget... Just let me forget...
Track Name: Lies
The flowers I gave you are dead and so am I. You killed us both in our bed, with your poisonous lies. I stay away from mirrors, ‘Cause I hate looking back. No, I still can’t believe it, is this fiction or fact? So life goes on, good luck living with who you have become. So life goes on. If you loved me, then why d’you do me wrong? Happiness leaves such a bitter aftertaste, seems like the best things in life go to waste. I was worried sick and you don’t care that’s just it! That’s just it, that’s just it. So life goes on, good luck living with who you have become. So life goes on, if you loved me, then why d’you do me wrong?
Track Name: Please Say Something
So come on, there’s a million things we have to talk about. So sit down, and let’s start counting now. I’m sick and tired of leaving things unsaid. I’m sure they sound way better in my head. But I need to say this, I need to make things right. Please say something. Why don’t you tell me what you’re hiding from me? CauseI know, cause I know that something’s up. I wish you’d come out and fucking say it. Why keep secrets from the people you love? Please say something. There’s no more time to waste anymore, and you’ve been crying behind closed doors. I’m running out of reasons to stay. Never thought that things would end this way. You said “There’s nothing wrong”. But it was make it or break it. Now I sing this song. Please say something. There’s no more time to waste anymore, and you’ve been crying behind closed doors. I’m running out of reasons to stay. I never thought that things would end this way.
