Track Name: Forgive Me, Miss (ft. Dylan Nash of The Never Ever)
So long, open arms can’t hold on
Too long, this is where I lose on

This is my time, start a new life, strip it back
Walkin’ my way, givin’ my grades, ace that
Half past one, the sirens take us out

Chalkboard hands, crankin’ my band, touch that
Smile on her face, my embrace, faster
Takes me down like it’s my first time

Hold the desk, please Miss just keep it down and take it easy
Don’t forget this secret, god knows if my boys find out

Forgive me Miss I just can’t help but be so deep
Safe and sound we’re locked around inside this heat
This classroom smells of failure, sex and cheatin’ liars too
Come on if they find us now we’re gone for good

Come find me now, let’s keep it down (Who knows if we’ll get caught?)
Let’s play a game and risk some fame (I know I’ll keep this up)
You picked me out from all those kids, my ego’s faster now
Just five, five more minutes, bring it in, they’ll think it’s just a sign

Forgive me Miss I just can’t help but be so deep (Forgive me Miss)
Safe and sound we’re locked around inside this heat (Forgive me Miss)
This classroom smells of failure, sex and cheatin’ liars too (liars too)
Come on if they find us now we’re gone for good

Oh whoa, oh (Forgive me Miss)
Oh whoa, oh (Forgive me Miss)

There’ll come a day, where we get caught and face the shame (Oh whoa, oh)
But ‘till that day I’m the lucky kid who gets away with this
(Forgive me, Forgive me, Forgive me,
Forgive me)
Track Name: Love Notes and Antidotes
Sweet smile and a textbook touch, straight up attitude and a lover’s taste
I lost my way, so you lost your game
Tell me baby “Do you miss the summer?”

I got my hands around your waist
I got my lips sealed right into place
You’re my prom queen, baby I’m your party scene
This is where the story begins

If you’re at my door I’ll make the sunset come at four
Baby come and kiss me I just can’t take it anymore

Can’t take it anymore

Listen up, talk a little bit softer
Come on in, while the night grows colder
Baby we were never fond of the legend of slowin’ down (slowin’ down)
I’ve had my past heartbreaks but you erase those times and seduce my mind

If you’re at my door I’ll make the sunset come at four
Baby come and kiss me I just can’t take it anymore
These are my love notes, you are my antidote
These are my love notes, you are my antidote

I’m singing lines from the top of my head to tell you that you’re beautiful, irresistible
Improvisation is turning at the station so take my hand
Take my hand

If you’re at my door I’ll make the sunset come at four
Baby come and kiss me I just can’t take it anymore
These are my love notes, you are my antidote
These are my love notes, you are my antidote
Track Name: Sour Lips (Taste Better Than Sweet)
This is the story of the one day, I had my heart break but it wasn’t my lie
To tell the truth it was one that I’ll remember, was two stabs in the back, three says I’ll make it by
But when you walk by (but when you walk by)

Little lady, do I call you slim shady?
You’re a brand new rebel, try your brand new shoes
Come on baby, do these shoes give you blisters?
I can see this role, ain’t doing great for you

(So tell me how that’s workin’ out for you?)

You’re a downright thief of oxygen, but you make a guy stand upright and hard
It’s ironic isn’t it? How you come off so innocent
I never saw this comin’
I never saw you comin’ by, but when you walk on by

Little lady, do I call you slim shady?
You’re a brand new rebel, try your brand new shoes
Come on baby, do these shoes give you blisters?
I can see this role, ain’t doing great for you
It’s ironic isn’t it? How you come off so innocent
I never saw this comin’
I never saw you comin’
Let me tell you girl, let me tell you girl
Sour lips taste better than sweet

Little lady, do I call you slim shady?
You’re a brand new rebel, try your brand new shoes
Come on baby, do these shoes give you blisters?
I can see this role, ain’t doing great for you
It’s ironic isn’t it? How you come off so innocent
I never saw this comin’
I never saw you comin’
Let me tell you girl, let me tell you girl
Sour lips taste better than sweet

Taste better than sweet

Sour lips taste better than sweet
Track Name: Fast-Forward To Yesterday
Taken back by the fact, oh wait in fact I don’t know you at all
Lived a dream so it seems from the top of the scene, what a wasted fall (yeah!)
Your words are overrated, your value so out-dated
Please sign me off the checklist of the boys who stood above you

Take me back to the time, where your guts could fit mine so true
And you could have never believed your world crashing from me to you
Regrets are all you have in your mind

Let’s watch you fight for ways to undo, the biggest mistake of your life
I’m the new you, these words will now consume you
You’ll hear my voice every night

Activate the pit with all your selfish wit
You act insane, let’s this play game out in the rain
Your words are set in cardboard lines
My words will sanctify what you left behind

Take me back to the time, where your guts could fit mine so true
And you could have never believed your world crashing from me to you
Girl you can scream and shout with your new set and run it out
Rip off all his lines and then you rip off all your clothes and say
“I’m so proud of the progress we’ve made”
What fans could turn away your vision of a yesterday?

This starts a riot, sparks a fire breathing desperately
Waiting for you to bring your A-game for the world to see
This life comes naturally, the way it should be
My life’s a destiny I’m standing here for you to see

Take me back to the time, where your guts could fit mine so true
You, Take me back to the time, where your guts could fit mine so true
And you could have never believed your world crashing from me to you
Girl you can scream and shout with your new set and run it out
Rip off all his lines and then you rip off all your clothes and say
“I’m so proud of the progress we’ve made”
What fans could turn away your vision of a yesterday?
Track Name: So Long To My Reflection
Step to the left you’ll say goodbye
You break my knees and I’ll ask you why?
“Don’t be ungrateful”
“Whoa babe, I’m over this” baby, baby

Two steps in line till the waltz starts my mind again
Dance in the moonlight, sing in the starlight
Line me up, draw a cloud taking my heart away
One more time

So long farewell, Adieus to you and me, and all we could be

Step to the left you’ll say goodbye
You break my knees and I’ll ask you why?
“Don’t be ungrateful”
“Whoa babe, I’m over this” baby, baby
Sleep all alone in the safety and comfort of your home
Pick up the pieces, your eyes light like Christmas and now teardrops and rain fall again

Inject this subject,
Walk your mind down, keepin’ down
Sleepless and useless I feel to wash away the winter in this cold empty town
I’d walk a thousand metres to be free from your sound
But your car catches me before I got the chance to speak
My legs lose all heat now I’m marked off as dead meat

Step to the left you’ll say goodbye
You break my knees and I’ll ask you why?
“Don’t be ungrateful”
“Whoa babe, I’m over this” baby, baby
Sleep all alone in the safety and comfort of your home
Pick up the pieces, your eyes light like Christmas and now teardrops and rain fall again

So long to my reflection, my other half

Step to the left you’ll say goodbye
You break my knees and I’ll ask you why?
“Don’t be ungrateful”
“Whoa babe, I’m over this” baby, baby
Sleep all alone in the safety and comfort of your home
Pick up the pieces, your eyes light like Christmas and now teardrops and rain fall again
Track Name: Bliss Like This
This is crazy; we've passed insanity
We're on the run from consequences leavin’ a mess
It's late and we're out, we're not quite sure where we're at
We're not alone, we're so alone

We’re doin' things that we shouldn't do, what the hell have I got myself into?
They put a label on love but baby for tonight
Why should we play by their rules when this feels so right?
We set the night on fire

Light it up, drink it down, pass it on
Dreamers come alive when the sun is gone
Go on, try to take this from me
But I couldn't give it to you if I tried

Shadows on the street cast a whole new set of troubled friends
As you take their hand, you take a chance
Your short dress has never looked so innocent

Light it up, drink it down, pass it on
Dreamers come alive when the sun is gone
Go on try to take this from me
But I couldn't give it to you if I tried
If you say jump then we'll all fall down
Keep your thrown all I need is this crown
Darlin don't hold your breath 'cause they've never felt bliss like this

Standing can't you hear the light?
The shadows left your red dress

Light it up, drink it down, pass it on
Dreamers come alive when the sun is gone
Go on try to take this from me
But I couldn't give it to you if I tried
If you say jump then we'll all fall down
Keep your thrown all I need is this crown
Darlin don't hold your breath 'cause they've never felt bliss like this
Track Name: Sunshine, With A Storm On The Way
Three a.m. or six at night? Sleepless thoughts awake my mind
Your ghost of tonight whisper my lie
This nightmare unfolding, pinch me now
Tell me “this’ll have an end”, tell me where to begin
Tell me a lie to save my heart

From tearing a hole, from burning my soul
From stealing my health, my piece of mind (This is not what I’m made for)

Now I’m broken I’m just starting to feel alone
You warned me baby, warned me baby, but I still let you go
Can you take my hand and glue it to yours? Take my heart and stick it underground
I fight myself for what’s right or wrong, I did this to you
Maybe one day our fingers will meet
But the air you left belongs to me

But the air you left belongs to me

I say so long to common sense
Evidence of happiness is floating away
Sometimes I wish I could cry to show you how much I’ve died
Oh baby these wounds are beginning to feel alive
Feel tonight one more time

Just get it over with I’m dead in my eyes
Just kill me over this regrets are staring into my eyes

Now I’m broken I’m just starting to feel alone
You warned me baby, warned me baby, but I still let you go
Can you take my hand and glue it to yours? Take my heart and stick it underground
I fight myself for what’s right or wrong, I did this to you
Maybe one day our fingers will meet
But the air you left belongs to me

Burn this picture or take me with her, don’t leave me here
I’m just so selfish and god damned senseless, bringin’ me to tears

Maybe the light will find my dark, ‘till then I can’t bear to see you again

Now I’m broken I’m just starting to feel alone
You warned me baby, warned me baby, but I still let you go
Can you take my hand and glue it to yours? Take my heart and stick it underground
I fight myself for what’s right or wrong, I did this to you
Maybe one day our fingers will meet
But the air you left belongs to me
