Track Name: Let's Lose It All
You see through all my sins so well
But it's a lie as far as I can tell
I complicate this life to hell
But it's mine as far as I can tell

We bet it all
So let's lose it all
I'm still hoping that you'll call

What do we want?
What do we want?
Who is this for and
What is this for?

Those walls grow closer every day
But it's a lie they put in the way
I can't make out half the words you say
But I'll smile, pretend to hear 'em anyway


We bet it all
So let's lose it all
Crossing fingers that you'll call

What do we want?
What do we want?
Who is this for and
What is this for?

The wife
The kid
The house
The signs of living well
The job
The car
So everyone can tell
That we have lost ourselves
Track Name: Neon Nights
Lost himself when he found the bottle
A burn out by the age of 22
Left now with the dreams of yesterday
Got stuck in the tides of me and you
Bright lights and clouded vision
Neon nights stole his shine away
Lost focus on a fading image
Left now with regrets of yesterday

Buried deep beneath the weight of years gone by
You take the car and start to drive
You spin the wheel but know there's no hope of return
Another lesson learned

I
I'm just getting by
It happens all the time
These sleepless nights and vacant eyes

Took his time on the slow burn decline
Day by day he threw good faith aside
Beat down by the thoughts of yesterday
Hard to stand when you lost most of your spine

Bloody nose and inflated ego
withdraw withdrew him from his life
Knows now that he lost his yesterday
blurred out and it's faded out of sight

Buried deep beneath the weight of years gone by
You take the car and start to drive
You spin the wheel but know there's no hope of return
Another lesson learned

I
I'm just getting by
It happens all the time
These sleepless nights and vacant eyes

He must not have been looking
No, it must have taken place while he was away
For the town and faces all seem so familiar
Just his face has grown strange

I
I'm just getting by
It happens all the time
These sleepless nights and vacant eyes
Track Name: Haunt Me
We met again in dreams last night
Surprised me as I lived in distant memory
We spoke about a youth that passed us by
And how spent the years since

So here's another night
For us to get it right
Forget about the darkness standing proudly in the light
So what's another day
When I can hear you say that you are here and that you never went away

I would have run
You went living
The ghosts that haunt our youth will live forever in our blood but
Honey I would run

You looked at me and laughed through tears
I asked you how we got it so wrong
The silence spoke when words were missing
I guess I should be going

So here's another night
For us to get it right
Forget about the darkness standing proudly in the light
So what's another day
When I can hear you say that you are here and that you never went away

I would have run
You went living
The ghosts that haunt our youth will live forever in our blood but
Honey I would run

I'm right here where you left me
Begging you come back and haunt me
I've been here hoping
Though time has spoken
Said all your loving is gone
