about

Every song on this EP was self-written and recorded completely unedited and unplugged. Basically raw audio of some songs that I felt needed to be heard by humans (and not just by my walls). Hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Skeletons
you're wasting your days
you're making a mistake
i wish you the best 'cause i'm the best you'll find

don't let us slip away
making another mistake
and i can't stand the miserable wreck in my mind

i'm fighting sleep because it's fighting me
skeletons of all our memories
show behind my closed eyes
no matter how hard i try
i can't let you go

and the silent sounds as i'm screaming out
you can't forget about me
no matter how long the years go by
i'll rush to accompany your side
you can't forget about me

you don't look at me like you always did
it must've slipped your mind how well we fit
it's all my fault
yeah, i'm to blame
but if you give me a chance
i swear, i've changed

and the silent sounds as i'm screaming out
you can't forget about me
no matter how long the years go by
i'll rush to accompany your side
you can't forget about me
Track Name: The Sun
there's one thing i've learned about this crazy life
you burn and you get burned and you sometimes lose the fight
and it's true, you never know just what you've got until it's gone
i just had to get you off my mind and get you into a song.

'cause i can't go a single day
without remembering somehow, some way
i gotta shake you off today
i gotta leave without a trace
and if you ever want us again
i've got a little time and the sun won't shine without you

all the pictures that i've still got
well, i dug 'em up, put 'em back to rot
i can't stand to see your face knowing it's the one thing i can't replace
and i know you're sitting alone tonight
with a smile on your face and your bloodshot eyes
and i doubt i even crossed your mind this time

'cause i can't go a single day
without remembering somehow, some way
i gotta shake you off today
i gotta leave without a trace
and if you ever want us again
i've got a little time and the sun won't shine without you

i'd trade everything for just one more day
without being without you
Track Name: All My Life
don't you remember all the smiling faces, long talks that we had?
and don't you know that i'd give anything i have to get them back?
oh bobby mcgee and wasted dreams, never thought the 2 would collide
and now i'm reaping what i've sewn, my punishment for being blind
i always thought that i could love you all my life.

i'm going crazy, i'm becoming quite the recluse
and i sing all of our favorite songs hoping for a part two
and i know that i need you now. i'm sorry for the detour.
i always thought that you would love me all my life.

so here's to the last time. we'll start it out with cheap wine.
i'll apologize for losing my mind and maybe you'll take this offer of me.
i'll trade in the rest of my life for what used to be a good time.
in exchange that you would love me all my life.
i just need you to love me all my life.
Track Name: Weekend Shoes
friday night's all good and fun
but saturday morning when i face the sun
i swear i've never been so alone.
i get called baby, collect a few maybes
but my mind's trying to drive me crazy
i dont think i can make it on my own

so i have a bestfriend bud and a bestfriend jack
the're the best old friends i've ever had
and they never let me think about you.
i get my guitar on and play those songs
you always used to sing along
but they rarely ever make me blue

so before you claim i never cared
and i dont miss you being htere
take a walk in my weekend shoes

well i know you miss my voice - but
you act like you have no choice
to get up and start running back to me
i can see you there in your favorite chair
not thinking bout me and it aint fair
you just aint you you used to be
but dont worry about satisfying me

you can ask all of my bestfriends
i swear the cycle never ends
Track Name: Letting Go
i hope you get her with those big blue eyes
and i hope she never gets to sleep at night
i hope you make her feel like she's your world
your girl

i hope she dont mind to cry
and for a minute she feels sky high
when you're wrapped around her arm going 95

but hope she realizes that damage you can cause
that out of everything you say, you mean nothing at all
and maybe she wont get her hopes up and keep her head down low
and i hope she knows she's better off just letting go

now im catching up on all my sleep
my money lasts me for more than a week
and i've finally got priorities
man i hope she catches on

and the games you play, saying you'd stay
i hope she throws her heart away
before you have the chance to make it cold
