Track Name: Glass Floors
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
Track Name: Wise Up
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
Track Name: New Grounds
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
