Glass Floors 04:13
I’ve never been a big fan of goodbyes But I guess you knew that And as far as I do you know We walk too hard on these glass floors And now I’ve finally found my way Not lost, caught up in insecurity Why won’t you look me in the face? Why won’t you look me in the face? We’ll look back at this one day We’ll laugh and make up when we realize we made a mistake Once we realize the hope time brings We’ll be ready for anything We don’t need to hold each other back It’s hard enough without these issues to keep our lives on track Know that it’s aimless We just can’t take this Let’s leave this all behind so we can strive Maybe in a couple years we’ll see what’s up and go out for some beer See if it’s cool or it’s weird But all I know for now is I’m out of here These messages, so subliminal Since when did our mistakes make us criminal? It takes restraint to watch what we say Cause we’ve all done wrong at the end of the day We don’t need to hold each other back It’s hard enough without these issues to keep our lives on track Know that it’s aimless We just can’t take this Let’s leave this all behind so we can strive

Wise Up 02:36
I had a good run In this backwards broken town It was a matter of time before it let me down I need to accept that you don’t want me around Wish I could suck it up Wish that I could be tough And the best of my friends I’ve seen them come and go I don’t even know how I call this place my home It’s eating me up when there’s nowhere to turn Got these stiches on my heart that remind me to live and learn And I need to believe I can hold my head up high And I need to believe I can be something before I die And I need to believe I can look you in the eye And I need to believe I just need to take my time And I remember when I didn’t think so capably Watched my mind go up in mushroom clouds more than casually My heart’s barely beating cause I’m barely breathing It hits me so hard in the middle of the evening And I need to believe I can hold my head up high And I need to believe I can be something before I die And I need to believe I can look you in the eye And I need to believe, I just need to take my time

New Grounds 02:54
New grounds breaking from the lack of faith and honesty Might not have been real to you but you don’t know how much it meant to me Never the same again And I can’t account for the pain I’m in Always thought you were a safe bet Cause my hand’s the only hand you’ll ever have to hold Getting around this town you know it must be getting old One love could last a lifetime, I could steal your heart put it’s not mine Play back like rewind and send chills right down your spine Send chills right down your spine New grounds shaking from the lack of laughs and smiles that we used to have While I try to tell myself that things can’t get that bad Hoping is hopeless and I hate that I know this But I’ll look back and laugh cause I’m growing Cause my hand’s the only hand you’ll never have to hold Getting around this town you know it must be getting old One love could last a lifetime, I could steal your heart put it’s not mine Play back like rewind and send chills right down your spine Send chills right down your spine Never meant much without the lights down Every second we spent, every second we spent Never meant much without the lights down It never meant much without the lights down It never meant much I never meant much without the lights down I never meant much
