Track Name: Heads Up
We stay up all night long
writing words down and singing songs
and its hard to think where we would be
without each other and nights like these

We do the best that we can keeping our heads up
Another night in the van, things might be rough

But we’re never going home again
This whole town is full of dead ends
But we’ll keep our hopes up
We’ll keep our hopes up

Spent less time in my own bed
Than I have spent in my car
Driving hours to see shows and friends
It never mattered how far

Its hard to think where we would be
Without each other and nights like these
We keep getting knocked down
We wont stay there for long

We do the best that we can keeping our heads up
Another night in the van, things might be rough

But we’re never going home again
This whole town is full of dead ends
But we’ll keep our hopes up
We’ll keep our hopes up

Never going home again
I’d rather be here with my friends
But we’ll keep our hopes up
We’ll keep our hopes up high

We keep getting knocked down
We wont stay there for long
We keep getting back up
We wont stay down

But we’re never going home again
This whole town is full of dead ends
But we’ll keep our hopes up
We’ll keep our hopes up

Never going home again
I’d rather be here with my friends
But we’ll keep our hopes up
It doesn’t matter where we go
cuz’ we’re never going home

Hey x4
Track Name: Mean What You Say
out of sight, out of mind
It’s just the lie we use
out of sight, out of mind
we’ve come too far

once again falling back on these old habits
tried it twice I thought we almost had it
but now I see that I’ve done all that I can

done wasting my time
done wasting my time

whoa - oh - ah

done wasting my time
done wasting my time

whoa - oh - ah

done wasting my time
done wasting my time

and now I’m heading in the wrong direction
because I’m terrified of what I see, what I know I’ll always be
out of sight is out of mind
at least that’s how we’d like to think it happens
we’ve come too far to let go

we’ve come to far to let go
we’ve come to far to let go

these are the times that’s we’re never getting back
and I’m not giving up no, I’m not giving up yet
and I’ll scream out my lungs until I’m coughing up dust
but it won’t mean a thing unless you mean what you say

I’m better off never knowing where I’m going
can’t you see, that you are all over me?
I’m not so sure that these times are better learned
stop wasting my time
stop wasting my time

and now I’m heading in the wrong direction
because im terrified of what I see, what I know I’ll always be
out of sight is out of mind at least that’s how we’d like to think it happens
we’ve come too far to let go

these are the times that were never getting back
and I’m not giving up no, I’m not giving up yet
and I’ll scream out my lungs until I’m coughing up dust
but it won’t mean a thing unless you mean what you say

out of sight out of mind, that’s just the lie we use
out of sight out of mind, we’ve come too far to let go x4

these are the times that, we’re never getting back
I’m not giving up no, I’m not giving up yet
and I’ll scream out my lungs until I’m coughing up dust
but it won’t mean a thing unless you mean what you say
Track Name: It's Not Me It's You
We've already been down this road so many times before
But you're just so good at finding
New ways to waist my time I've had enough
With this back and forth, wont fight it anymore

I'll be better off without your love at all
and the time that it takes is just more that we break
We've been here before, we're not us anymore
So say so long

Oh, days start to pass us by
I'll burn away all of the memories of who we used to be
But don't try to change my mind
I gave you everything, you gave it all away

We thought that what we had was right
But it was not there from the start
The longer that we live this lie
It stopped us from trying so hard
Time and time again we tried
Things ended up falling apart
But now I finally realize its not me its you

I'll be better off without your love at all
and the time that it takes is just more that we break
We've been here before, we're not us anymore
So say so long

We've forgotten who we are
What have we become
What have you become

Done trying to make this work

I'll be better off without your love at all
and the time that it takes is just more that we break
We've been here before, we're not us anymore
So say so long
Track Name: Don't Try
Yeah, kick it!

I gave you all that I had.
We Just can't go on like this.

It seemed to me that when we first met
The boundless summer seemed so perfect
Intoxicated by your perfume
Now that same scent only consumes

My heart and my mind, my thoughts and my time
I think you should know that where ever I go
There will always be that spot in my heart
A reminder that we'll always be better apart

I tried so hard just to give this up
I guess for you its not good enough
Atleast theres more to me than you

So dont try and say things will be the same
We know it won't work that way
I won't make the same mistake this time

Time after countless time
I gave you all I had I gave you everything
You weren't who I thought you were
It wasn't worth it, you weren't worth it.

I tried so hard just to give this up
I guess for you its not good enough
I won't make the same mistake this time

I tried so hard just to give this up
I guess for you its not good enough
Atleast theres more to me than you

So dont try and say things will be the same
We know it won't work that way
I won't make the same mistake this time
