Track Name: don't let your life
don't let your life

don't let your life pass you by
don't let the time always fly
hang on to it get a grip
cause you get one then it's done
this is your life

don't let your heart fill with hate
don't let what's different out shine what's the same
hang on to it get a grip
cause you get one then it's done
this is your life

when your dreams fall to pieces
don’t stop believing
each dawn is a new day
go make your change

don't let your mind over think it
don't let your reasons throw off the rhyme
hang on to it get a grip
cause you get one then it's done
this is your life

when your dreams fall to pieces
don’t stop believing
each dawn is a new day
go make your change

each dawn is a new day
each dawn is a new day
each dawn is a new day
go make your change
Track Name: only a world away
only a world away

you were only a world away
when I made my clumsy false start
feels like you’re across the universe
from here now

all at once tender and still
alluring of my deepest desires
fret for a moment cause you’re gone
dwell on me for the rest of the day

our brief interlude
obliterated everything I knew
all of the dreams
I'd hope to come true
they were you

all the foreground evaporates
the background comes into view
like a star coming to be
cycles in and out of site

our brief interlude
obliterated everything I knew
all of the dreams
I'd hope to come true
they were you

uncertainty of our future days
becomes a festering allure
changes all of the plans for the day
pause the rest of the world

our brief interlude
obliterated everything I knew
all of the dreams
I'd hope to come true
they were you
Track Name: little spark
little spark

i normally miss connections
that other people make
i hear the word you're saying
feels like I've been here before

i don't know all my rights
but I know when it feels wrong
leave you to your decision
let you assassin along

i am an original
i am unoriginal

it only takes a little spark
to set you on fire
send you far away from here
somewhere in the atmosphere

i’ll be pushin daisies
on the days when I'm not here
a reminder to my loved ones
i love them still

i am an original
i am unoriginal

it only takes a little spark
to set you on fire
send you far away from here
somewhere in the atmosphere

i am an original
i am unoriginal
i am an original
i am unoriginal

i will be a little spark
to set you on fire
send you far away from here
somewhere in the atmosphere

it only takes a little spark
to set you on fire
send you far away from here
somewhere in the atmosphere
Track Name: already dead
already dead

walk through the fire drinking a beer
with the woman that scares you most
cause her love ain't easy
and it cost you the most
of what's left of your soul

what matters most
we do not know everything about
ourselves just yet

what matters next
whatever thing you love most
takes away your breathe

both of you drink
too much and not enough
both in want of the parts
the other refuses to give
laughter and love
in place of passion and trust

what matters most
we do not know everything about
ourselves just yet

what matters next
whatever thing you love most
takes away your breathe

so there at the end
we've lived our lives so well
that we're not already dead

what matters most
we do not know everything about
ourselves just yet

what matters next
whatever thing you love most
takes away your breathe

so there at the end
we've lived our lives so well
that we're not already dead
Track Name: wild ride
wild ride

monsters turn dreams
into nightmares unseen
if you fight you are a hero today

in the story of your life
enjoy all the surprise
put down your weapons for hope

take the good from the bad
be happy and never sad
it’s a wild ride but
you’ll be alright

at times i still recall
why we started the fight
get lost in things i cannot explain

i don’t know
i’ve never been told
but i don’t think you'll ever really know

take the good from the bad
be happy and never sad
it’s a wild ride but
you’ll be alright

take the good from the bad
be happy and never sad
it’s a wild ride but
you’ll be alright
Track Name: to be yourself
to be yourself

will you always be this incomplete
like the things you dream while you sleep
all that you’ve got to do is find the pieces of you
the parts inside of you that makes you happy

seek yourself to find yourself
seek yourself to find yourself
to be yourself

will you always be this guilty
lack the courage to seek what you dream
all that you've got to do is find the pieces of you
the parts inside of you that know differently

seek yourself to find yourself
seek yourself to find yourself
to be yourself

seek yourself to find yourself
seek yourself to find yourself
seek yourself to find yourself
seek yourself to find yourself
to be yourself
