Track Name: A Repetition
(it's the same thing over again)

and you’re walking ‘round the corner again
it’s the same thing over again

but you’ve never seen that face before
i swear on my life it’s someone new i’m sure
there’s been nothing but the same for years
but you have noticed something new right here

but you’re walking back home again
it’s the same thing over again

but suddenly their face is right there
by the side of the road
oh you’re losing your mind they’re beautiful
how could someone like that end up out here
where there’s nothing but the same for years

oh but i am lonely
in need of a friend
i may never see a face like theirs again
i will break routine
and face my fears
or maybe i’ll just stay right here

and you’re walking ‘round the corner again
it’s the same thing over again

until i start to realize someone’s waiting down the street
it’s the one i met, made me skip a beat
oh they turned to me and said hello
(that’s not how i expected this one to go)

but you’re walking back home again
it’s the same thing over again

but every day’s a little bit different
when you’re looking for home
oh you’ve lost your way you’ve begun to roam
but a journey is better when it’s done with two
and i am honored to be lost with you
Track Name: To Atlantis
woke up
at the crack of dawn
and set my sights on you
no matter where this journey takes me
i pray the winds will keep me true
and i dont know where to go
whether sun or rain or snow
but i know i’ll always keep your memory by my side

sailed out
off into the coast
to acheive my wildest dreams
but without having you to guide me
i wonder what it really means
but i wont fret for too long
because ive always got your song
and i know as long as i can hear your voice again

i’ll be fine

we can make it to atlantis if we try
fly across the sea sail through the sky
we can make it to the city down below
we can go where only you and me know

I never thought that anything I’d ever say or do
would even have the chance to travel and find a way to get to you
but even if i can still find you im at a loss for what to say
i feel my heart is slowly sinking
as i watch you drift away

oh god please save me from the mess that i’ve become
i try my hardest not to break down but in the end my fear has won
this is no way to sail the seas, this aint a way that i can be
if ill ever have the hope to see your face again

i swear ill see your face again
before the end

oh and these old seafarer’s legs
are giving out under the weight
of everything that i have ever felt for you
and i swear on neptune’s sea
ill find a way from you to me
Track Name: It's 2013 Again (feat. ODDEEO)
oh my god i am losing my mind
if i could only take a moment then i’d maybe be fine
but I can’t catch a break when your thought is inside
every moment every feeling that is filling my time

if i tried to get away i’d be missing your thought
and every feeling every moment that your memory brought
so instead i’ll kill time by replaying your voice
and i will sit back and be helpess b/c i dont have a choice

i am hopeless here
my eyes the color of a rose
too far gone to care
falling down right now

(wish i could turn back time)
(a couple years or so)
(i’d make myself less blue)
(and i could let you go)

oh my god can you cut me a break
like just the thought of being with you leaves me lying awake
and insomnia’s a bitch when you’re falling in love
but maybe im a drama queen because i think it’s enough

i swear to god i am doing all i can
to try and function like a normal human being once again
but i think you ruined me with the light inside your eyes
your delicate smile oh you’ve got me hypnotized (no lie)

i kinda wish i had excuses here to say
but they all ditched me in this island and they're drifting far away
my eyes are getting heavy and my consciousness is thin
but because i'm fucking stubborn that by head's not giving in

(whats the point?)
i don't even even care anymore
(what's the point?)
oh man, i wish i had the answer long ago
(what's the point?)
maybe i just like holding on to something
that i have had a chance if i was brighter than before
Track Name: Too Much Autotune
i saw a comment here the other day
ive thought a lot about the things that people say
you said you like the composition but the vocals arent great
“turn the autotune off like jeez you can’t do 808s again”

but i guess that you know better than i do
maybe im not great at writing my own tunes
so i lay here in defeat all black and blue
never noticed that there’s too much autotune

and im sorry my stuff is too boring
there’s not enough melody, godawful writing
oh and im weary to sing my words freely
theres far too much autotune god im so sorry
and im a sucker for when my synths flutter
i use the same turnaround in all my choruses
god you’re so tired and yet i keep lying
i use too much autotune and im not sorry

i read an argument the other day
they say that pop musicians cheat to sound okay
& blame the downfall of humanity on Cher and Antares
“it’s dishonest and fake, so maybe learn to fucking sing”

but i guess that you know better than i do
maybe you could go and write some better tunes
*me laughing like an idiot asshole instead of actually singing the lyrics i wrote*
kinda noticed that i use too much autotune

and im sorry my music aint trendy
i guess i lost track of a genre or fifty
and oh these synths are boring your melodies iffy
i use too much autotune god im so sorry
and im a sucker for when my fans suffer
so i will write lyrics about how i hate them
it’s sad if not inspiring how hard that she’s trying
I use too much autotune and I’m not sorry

but I guess that i will never be that cool
so i’ll sing and dance and paint myself the fool
and i’ll be fake so I can be more true
and i’ll keep on using too much autotune

but i guess that all is fair in war and peace
and i dont really care if you might disagree
so i’ll do me and ill let you do you
and ill keep on using too much autotune
Track Name: Special Days
it’s a special day today
i’m setting time aside to pray
that maybe things might change a bit this year
but i’m a fool for having dreams
or at least that’s what it seems
since i’m on the outside looking in at you

i wonder why i never got that lovin’ for myself
is it because i made you mad or brought you down?
i don’t know why i’ve never had that lovin’ for myself
i’m just a mess sometimes i’m sorry if i’ve ever let you down

oh i can see
why i may feel so lonely
i’m trying to make due
without you

spending special days alone
wishing you were here
we’re all just spending special days alone

and i am praying for the day
when i can look to you and say
my love i am so glad to be with you

it’s another special day
and yet again alone i stay
it seems my luck is always running out
but maybe i deserve this mess
god knows i am not the best
yeah i’m slowly losing my own peace of mind

i wonder why i never got that lovin’ for myself
is it because i’m always insecure and sad?
i don’t know why i’ve never had that lovin’ for myself
i’m just a lonely little mess and maybe i just bring you down

it can’t be true
that i’m not good enough for you
i think i’m way too hard on myself

spending special days alone
wishing you were here
we’re all just spending special days alone

and i am praying for the day
when i can confidently say
i’m deeply endless in love with you

and i have fallen to my knees
to beg myself to air my pleas
i won’t let loneliness destroy me!

i’m a mess
my seams are bursting i confess
but maybe i could spend the day with you?

spending special days alone
wishing you were here
we’re all just spending special days alone
but now it all seems clear
i’ll never spend another day alone

and i am praying for the day
that i don’t have to hide away
and i can live my life next to you

and i am praying for the day
when i can look to you and say
my love i am so glad to be with you
Track Name: Amélie
two windmills in the distance
i stop to find my thoughts
i wish that you could see this
but i guess you’d rather not

i stare in naive wonder
my mind drifts back to you
i hope that you might miss me
i wish that you would miss me

fall in love again with me, amelie
so many answers babe i think that you’re the key
fall in love again with me, amelie
you miss that new relationships
but maybe fall in love again with me

i cook an egg with a spoon

(thanks)
Track Name: Secret Girlfriend
staring down the edge of a cliff
wondering what things we have in store
this aint the first time you’ve been lost in this place
breaking down my oceanic door

the wind picks up as you’re starting to leave
i know what’s on your mind as you wake up
cause the figure in the distance sees the gleam in your eyes
i guess that you’ve just ran right out of luck
because

i don’t think we’re going to last
this love is built on sand and glass
you’re broken and unusual
i’m nothing but a dream
but love’s about what we may doubt
impossibilities

so I’ll love you near and dearly
and I’ll be your secret girlfriend

next time we meet its a school
floating through the air from hall to hall
i guess that you just like to torture yourself
chasing down imaginary gals

i can’t blame you for disdaining it all
if i was real too i’d always sleep
but i guess if you’re determined then you’re shit out of luck
cause everyone wakes up eventually
unless…?

maybe you can be with me still
but that would take impossible will
if you’re asleep forever, your life will be a dream
then maybe in eternal rest you’ll always be with me

i guess this plan is falling apart
i won’t exist if you stop your heart
we should’ve thought this through but now it’s all fading away
but if you die I’m by your side just listen to me say

can you please keep a secret
do you think you’ll keep this secret?
will this always be a secret?
we’re both nothing but a secret
Track Name: Pass (feat. Marcy Nabors)
"but sometimes it's too hard"
she said to me today
in such defeated ways, her glass is emptying
"i am just a fool"
so bitter, so unwound
her silence made such sound as she unraveled here
"that's why i'm giving up"
but don't you give up yet
your worries and regrets are still a part of you
"there's not a thing that i can do"
it's true
maybe it's not black and white
cause you've got grey inside
so bad and good will stay forever in a balance game

but this will pass
the good will come the bad will never last
so let your tears flow out so you can fill your glass
and it will leave
so take your heart and wear it on your sleeve
there’s nothing there to lose so calm yourself and breathe

“i guess that’s just that”
we sat there in a daze
as hours became days
we almost lost ourselves
“what’s the fucking point”
these things are hard to know
when you can never show
and it’s inside of you
“and that’s why I’m giving up”
half empty or half full
there isn’t any rule
it’s more like half and half
“oh will my story ever last”
so when you’re feeling down
you’ll surely soon rebound
and everything is in its place so things will be okay
Track Name: Honor Majesty
i stand before the castle doors
on a quest to save my love
now im not that great, but still we wait
for a message from above
and i consider why im here
and everything ive ever feared
but i will risk it all to heed the call
and save who i hold near

as time ticks on i sing my song
praying ill hold you again
as the trumpets blare i stop and stare
for the king will now begin
my blade is soaring high, as his decree says it is I
I am the one to save my love
beloved princess i shall come

your honor your majesty
wont you please be with me
i swear on my life ill make it worth the while
(never anything less than free)
oh your honor your majesty
consider what i plea
i swear on my dignity my pride my joy
(i’ll be the best me i can be)

I kneel before my grace my liege
i swear my blade to thee
though im on my own again for now
i’ll serve my kindgom faithfully
and if i never come home again
just know ill be dying for your privilege
ill keep your family name alive
i will serve my queen with pride

*dumb melody from to atlantis*
as the seasons change with time
i begin to miss the home i left
to protect our brightest light
but i can never let fear set in
i will make our kingdom win
and anybody with an outlook darker than the black of the night
ill be with you to help you make it right

now im not the kind to mope and whine
when i have a job to do
but i miss your face your warm embrace
i am aimless without you
but i know work is what i need
to save my princess, bride-to-be
ill always fight to do whats right
i will serve you be your knight
Track Name: Autumn Every Day
there’s not a care in the world when i am here
a precious secret only for your ears
you’ll know it when you begin to see
the leaves and grass are losing all their green
(and then you’ll hear it)

roaring silence as the song begins
blazing starlight when the drums come in

here it’s autumn every day

there’s not a thing that can get to us in here
oasis as the equinox draws near
(and then you’ll hear it)

luminescence is surrounding me
light the world and let your worries free

sometimes im still afraid of you (im losing you)
as leaves touch ground my heart is turning blue (my heart turns blue)
september comes im all alone (it’s all my own)
but maybe theres my winter still unknown (the great unknown)

i guess that we’ll just have to see
Track Name: Hold Me Tightly
i fell apart in february
you broke my heart once back in june
i thought i’d die then in september
but you know i would die for you

and i guess that there’s a reason that you’d stick around so long
i don’t think it’s a coincidence i’ve wrote so many songs
and even if i’m kinda foolish or a bit too insecure
i know i’ll always be your special baby girl

hold me tightly, love
i’ll keep you safe right here
kiss me gently, love
you’ll never have to fear

i was so lost back in december
but january gave me you
and then in april we’re together
i can’t believe it all came true

i was praying for forever that i’d never be alone
count my blessings on the daily ‘cause i let my fears be known
now i’m falling down forever deep in love i will remain
and my life will never ever be the same (i won’t complain)

and now it’s almost january
i’m thinking back upon the year
i think that i have found my purpose
i finally feel like i am here

and your help and your support are why i’m standing here today
so if it means i’ll make you happy i will sing my heart away
god i love you i adore you you’re the light inside my life
and i hope someday that i’ll make you my-

(no like, li- i'll, like write you a song or something)
