Track Name: Katherine
"What a night," she said to me,
"For staying under sheets."
Her and I, we could be
Cold out on the streets
But not tonight, not this time
We're holding off that scene
I close my eyes, hold on tight
But she slipped right through my reach.

And you're gone right through the wall
Never here at all, I can't keep playing this game
But you don't care at all
Say you cut it off then walk out once again (Walk out once again)
Then turn up in the pouring rain.

But I'm okay
Don't care what you say
You can't change my opinion of you anyway
Just disappear
Like you always do
Walk right through the walls and out of view
This bitter goodbye
Is sweet refuge
From the pieces of me that you took with you.
Track Name: Niveles
I met a girl who reminded me of you
From the shape of her eyes to her small ankle tattoo
And it's just a matter of time
Before it falls apart
Just like it always does
Because it's not the same

I can't decide if you were the best part of my life
Or the worst thing that happened to me
Can't say goodbye while the question goes unanswered
And I fear that's how it will always be

Where in this world can I run to escape you
Every face on every girl sends me on a trip straight through
A portal to the past
Where it falls apart
Just like it always has
Because it's not our time

I can't decide if you were the best part of my life
Or the worst thing that happened to me
Can't say goodbye while the question goes unanswered
And I fear that's how it will always be
Track Name: I Know How You Feel
I'm not the type of guy
Who can walk into a crowd
And make everybody laugh
I'm not that one dude
Who eats a lot of healthy food
Or knows Jujitsu

But I am a man
Who can take a stand
For what I believe in
And when your life sucks
I may resort to hugs
I'm just that kind of person

You don't have to go this alone
I'm here for you, you know
Don't push me away
And though I don't know what to say
I'll be here anyway
As long as you need me
I'm not going away

I never wanted to be a symptom
Of your crappy life
It hurts you as much as me
And it's not a surprise
It's supposed to be this way
No one said you would agree
Whoever said that life would be
Easy?

You don't have to go this alone
I'm here for you, you know
Don't push me away
And though I don't know what to say
I'll be here anyway
As long as you need me
I'm not going away

I think the focus is in the wrong place
It's the truth but it's so hard to take
And it's so easy to complicate
We've come too far to just throw it all away

You don't have to go this alone
I'm here for you, you know
Don't push me away
And though I don't know what to say
I'll be here anyway
As long as you need me
I'm not going away
Track Name: Everything Is Illuminated
Couldn't shake the feeling that something had changed
Didn't know the reason. but it wasn't the same
As it had been, just two weeks ago
When we spoke on the telephone and you said
You couldn't wait to be together again
Just two more weeks and you'll be home

But the days went by and I'm trying to find
What reason you would ever need
To take back those lives
That we started that night
Say it's no longer you and me
No it's not, anymore

This isn't where I pictured we would be
One year ago
I never knew you'd need to be set free
And I would just let you go
If you ever want to come back to me
Well you can just let me know
And if that day doesn't come
I just want to say

I hope you find
Everything you're looking for
I hope that one day
Love will knock on your front door
And if I had a chance to turn back time
I would do it all again

Everything is illuminated now
The words that seemed so hard to get out
They've been pent up for way too long
They're coming alive in this song

We were meant to be
Just not forever
And though it hurts to see
I'd be blind not to recognize that
We've been going our separate ways
And we have been for quite a few days
So go on, find your happiness
And I'll find mine, yeah life is still blessed

Everything is illuminated now
The words that seemed so hard to get out
They've been pent up for way too long
They're coming alive in this song

I know you'll find
Everything you're looking for
I know that one day
Love will knock on your front door
I know that I
Will be okay, too
And I'm glad
I had so much time with you

Everything is illuminated now
The words are lit up
And I just don't know how
To get them out
So I can move on
They're coming alive in this song
Track Name: I Don't Think (This Song Is About Haley)
So many things have changed
Since you went and left this home
I've learned that I can be
Me without you
I wallowed in my shame
Felt sorry for myself
But eventually I learned
There was nothing I could do

I thought that I could change you
I needed to change
Didn't think I was good enough for you
I didn't know myself
I didn't know myself
But now I'll move on
Now I'll move on

I let you waste my time
Stood by while you lead me on
I didn't see the signs
Or who you really were
Saw no real value in myself
And let you hold me down
I let myself get comfortable
With a lack of self worth

I thought that I could change you
I needed to change
Didn't think I was good enough for you
I didn't know myself
I didn't know myself
But now I'll move on
Now I'll move on

I don't think we can
Ever be friends again
I gave you everything
You threw it away...

(repeat forever)
