Track Name: Bridges
I spend my time trying to find what's been clouding my mind,
I seem fine most days and nights,
I hold my own, and I hope that I'll make it alone,
I don't know if I'm coming home,

I went on a mission to follow my heart,
I wish you would listen, cause I'm falling apart,
Falling apart,

I fought my wars, and I hope I don't fight anymore,
Cause I'm just tired of feeling so torn,

I'll leave the light on,
I'll get it right,

I went on a mission to follow my heart,
I wish you would listen, cause I'm falling apart,
I'm falling apart

Why don't you listen, cause I'm falling apart,
I burned all my bridges, but I'm willing to start,
I'm willing to start.
Track Name: Vices
I'm afraid to say that I'm in love,
Because being in love's not always enough,
I'm not really new to giving up,
But I'm trying to change the man I was,

In the past I haven't tried,
But you're worth the fight,

I wish that I could love you like I should,
But I'm a flawed man, and I couldn't do it anyway,
If I could turn back time and change I would,
But I can't, and I hope that you don't go away,
Lately I've been thinking you're the one,

Fear isn't the jump, it's in the fall,
If I were to try I know I'd hit a wall,
I want to tell the truth, but after all,
Comfortable lies kept me standing tall,

But you're right here,
And that's more than I deserve,
I fear my vices have a hold on my words,

I wish that I could love you like I should,
But I'm a flawed man, and I couldn't do it anyway,
If I could turn back time and change I would,
But I can't, and I hope that you don't go away,
Lately I've been thinking you're the one.
Track Name: Alive
They look for answers,
Questions, they linger in their eyes,
They ask me, 'how are you?'
And I say the same thing every time,
You know, the truth is I'm alright,

Eyes red, the sun's out,
And I just want to go back to sleep,
And be the man that I think of,
Alive when I wake up in my dreams,
You know, the truth is I'm not fine,
I'm not fine,

But maybe I'm alive for the first time in a long time,
I haven't felt this way since I met you,
Maybe I just learned how to let go,

I know it hurts, but the worst is knowing you're fine,
I'll be the first to say that you're shoulder's not as divine as the first time,

You know, the truth is I need time,
You know, the truth is I don't see the use in saying goodbye,

But maybe I'm alive for the first time in a long time,
I haven't felt this way since I met you,
Maybe I just learned how to let go.
Track Name: The Chance
There you are laying in your hospital bed,
If I had the choice I know I'd make it me instead,
I've made my peace, and now I think I know,
That I might be letting you go,

I know I talk a lot, but it helps me forget,
All the pain that's in my heart, and the thoughts running through my head,
It's been a while since I've had my proper rest,
This whole time I've been a mess,

Progress made, now you respond when I call your name,
I won't give up on you cause I know you'd do the same,
You'd do the same,

It's me that should be lying there,
The way it is is not fair,
I'm more helpless than I've ever been before,
I know I can't turn back time,
But now I swear I'll get it right,
I hope I get the chance, but though I can't be sure,
I know you're worth fighting for,

I want to hear your voice, cause it's been at least a month,
But for now I just have memories of the things that we have done,
I won't leave your side until you wake,
And I'll give you all the time you need to take,

Though I'm weak, I'm in awe when I see you staying strong,
Night and day I pray that you keep holding on,

It's me that should be lying there,
The way it is is not fair,
I'm more helpless than I've ever been before,
I know I can't turn back time,
But now I swear I'll get it right,
I hope I get the chance, but though I can't be sure,
I know you're worth fighting for,

I'll keep the faith for all my days,
And pray the light returns unto your face,
When I get to look in your eyes, I'll be alright inside,

It's me that should be lying there,
The way it is is not fair,
I'm more helpless than I've ever been before,
I know I can't turn back time,
But now I swear I'll get it right,
I hope I get the chance, but though I can't be sure,
I know you're worth fighting for,
