Track Name: Next Time You See Me
the next time you see me, I’ll be over these days,
(I’ll be moving on, finding my own way)
I’ll be doing alright

crashed out on my bedroom floor
babe, I’m looking for something more than this
to feel human one last time
to fall in being alive

feeling hazy as the days go passing by
stuck in the blues, lost and lonely
keep thinking I was doing it right
keep thinking I was satisfied

all the things I’ve tried to say out loud
screaming out for nothing, but baby
nobody wants to listen to my
to my misery

seems like I’m making my own way
spilling ink on a blank page
but I’ve read this story before
keep making the same mistakes
but I wasn’t always this way
wasting days over and over
Track Name: Blacks and Blues
where do we go from here? no where left to go
I’m still hopelessly dreamin’
left with words I’ll never say
here in the silence
wondering if I could explain
why I love the misery

now I’m taking pills to help ease my mind,
I’m lost in blacks and blues.

nuthin’ to waste but my own time
done with taking chances
how could you think that I would stay
waiting round on yesterday

now I’m taking pills to help ease my mind,
I’m lost in blacks and blues.
it’s the hardest thing to have to let this go, I’ll take one more pill tonight
Track Name: Pieces of You
there are pieces of you, I can't escape they’re in everything I do
there are pieces of you, they keep me hanging on

don’t know how I should feel?
I can’t make sense of anything
wondering how could I change your mind
I couldn’t see your heart was fading

now I’m talking in my sleep at night
I’m making myself crazy
I’m so tired of missing you
you were my kind of everything

maybe I loved you just a bit too much
you lose yourself trying to hold on to something, I'm losing you.

I'll keep writing out your name
until the ink is almost gone
even if they’re words you’ll never read
maybe I can move on
Track Name: Flesh and Bones
seems like forever since we said goodbye
I’m so tired, can’t open my eyes
just sullen, bruised and blue
I don’t want to keep writing out your name
stuck on that taste from your tongue
at least not anymore

it seems to be, every part of you
I just can’t shake it, baby blue
now I’m a fool
it’s you I’m after, your flesh and bones

the air is thick in my lungs
I’ve wasted days over and over
there’s no soul left in these bones

now I’m haunted by who I am
telling ghosts the stories of a better man
who would want me underneath the ground
