Track Name: The Game Of You And I
Tell me what to say
Help me find a way
To catch your eye
Oh how I've tried for you to see me
The doubt kicks in
I'm stuttering again
as your brown eyes reflect a nervous guy
And I've got no chance

Even if I bought you flowers
You still wouldn't know my name
Even if I told you everything
I know you wouldn't feel the same
I just keep my hopes up high but I don't know why I
Play the same old game
Of you and I

As I lie awake
I reflect on mistakes
I went to slow
And now I'll never know if things would have gone my way
So I forgot what you said
I turned away instead
To ease the pain
But it was all in vain
Cause now I'm back where I first started and

Even if I bought you flowers
You still wouldn't know my name
Even if I told you everything
I know you wouldn't feel the same
I just keep my hopes up high but I don't know why I
Play the same old game
Of you and I

I hope it hurts to find your permanence
You never felt a thing for this
And I don't know why I hurt myself by coming to hit and miss again

Even if I bought you flowers
You still wouldn't know my name
Even if I said it all

Even if I bought you flowers
You still wouldn't know my name
Even if I told you everything
I know you wouldn't feel the same
I just keep my hopes up high but I don't know why I
Play the same old game
Of you and I

(I hope it hurts to find your permanence
You never felt a thing for this
And I don't know why I hurt myself by coming back again
I hope it hurts to find your permanence
You never felt a thing for this)
Track Name: What Happens When You're Gone
I'd like to think that this wasn't a waste of my time
I can't forget the morning breath that you gave with a smile
I wish you'd miss this like the summer in the winter
I've been spending every minute not convincing you to finish what we
Started years ago
When we were young and didn't know
What we were getting ourselves into

Struggle to breathe and now I'm barely alive
Hit by a wave for the hundredth time
Still miss the days when we felt alright
But that was then, now you're on the other side
Told myself that I'm just bad luck, but for you I was never enough

How did this happen and when did it get this way
I know I made a few mistakes but I'm trying to make
It up to you; won't you let me through your walls
Won't you let me through your walls
Cause I won't give up on you if it's the last thing that I do

Struggle to breathe and now I'm barely alive
Hit by by a wave for the hundredth time
Still miss the days when we felt alright
But that was then now you're on the other side
Told myself that I'm just bad luck But for you I was never enough

Don't you
Tell me that there's nothing left
When we both know
That we won't let go
Of all the nights we shared
And all the times we cared
Too much, too much
Track Name: 16
Sixteen with the pressure to be perfect
Told me you were anything but worth it
I know you lack the self esteem
And nothing's left but the broken dreams
Of everything we used to be

No one knows what she's been told
So for now I'll say goodbye
Cause I just can't take another lie
Heart of some, so frozen
So I guess this is what it's like to be the last one with a dream at sixteen

Silent as you screamed
You were never what you seemed to be
It's clear to me
Give it up, we all know that you're nothing now
Make it up, we don't care guess who's laughing now
So sick of the same old problems
Try so hard but you just can't solve them
Well its all you've ever knows
Forget it now your cover's blown

No one knows what she's been told
So for now I'll say goodbye
Cause I just can't take another lie
Heart of stone, so frozen
So i guess this is what it's like to be the last one with a dream at sixteen

Black and blue by her own design
Clever words do hide your lies
See right through your cheap disguise
She loves the attention of a thousand eyes

No one knows what she's been told
So for now I'll say goodbye
Cause I just can't take another lie
Heart of stone, so frozen
So I guess this is what it's like to be the last one with a dream at sixteen
Track Name: Days And Minutes
And when we fall
I'm sure you'll be there to see it all
And I can only hope that you'll be mine

It was was never my intention to let you down
But you always seemed to find your way around
Your problems, responsibilities
You were nothing more to me than a memory
breaking hearts and crushing dreams
That's what you did to me

And when we fall
I'm sure you'll be there to see it all
And I can only hope that you'll be mine
We wish for the best and none of the rest
You gave me away only to say goodbye

The way you walked, the way you talked to me
I should have known from the start
That you were no good for me
Cause I've been waiting days and minutes for your call
But you never seemed to care at all
I'm slowly fading away

And when we fall
I'm sure you'll be there to see it all
And I can only hope that you'll be mine
We wish for the best and none of the rest
You gave me away only to say goodbye

Woah oh oh
Please don't go woah oh oh
We wish for the best and none of the rest
Woah oh oh
Please don't go woah oh oh
You gave me away only to say goodbye

And when we fall
I'm sure you'll be there to see it all
And I can only hope that you'll be mine

And when we fall
I'm sure you'll be there to see it all
And I can only hope that you'll be mine
We wish for the best and none of the rest
You gave me away only to say goodbye
Track Name: Walk Away
Don't tell me that I'm young and naive
When you were everything to me
But you don't want me back
You just want to fill my gap
I won't play this game

Replace everything I've said
But don't you say I never loved you again

How could you do this to me
Was it really that easy
To walk away, and you walked away
Now I'm left here without a thing
Does it make you happy
To walk away, and you walked away from me

I spend all my time alone in my room
And dwell on everything that used to
Make me feel alive
Now I'm so dead inside
But I'll just lie and tell you I am fine

Replace everything I've said
But don't you say I never loved you again

How could you do this to me
Was it really that easy
To walk away, and you walked away
Now I'm left here without a thing
Does it make you happy
To walk away, and you walked away from me

Maybe we just needed some time to
Fall apart, to find some day that
We fall right back into place
So I'll be here; you know where to find me
I won't be far, but I'll stay away from you
If you want me to

How could you do this to me
Was it really that easy
To walk away, and you walked away
Now I'm left here without a thing
Does it make you happy
To walk away, and you walked away from me
