Track Name: Fresh Start
I wrote a song for you
I never thought it’d speak to me
I jumped, I missed, and now I’m back
And I’ve never felt more free

Still I can’t help but feel I’m giving up
This dream just wasn’t for me
I learned a lot about myself,
Like that I don’t know a thing about myself

Packed up my life
In little boxes in the back of a van
Hit the 295 when reality set in
I never thought I’d be this lost
This is my first day without a plan
I don’t know where I belong
But I’m finally alive, so I hope I’m meant to live
I hope I’m meant to live

I wrote a letter
To everyone I ever loved
Then I burned the pages
Sometimes just writing the words down is enough

I need to stop hating
Everything I try to get into
And if there’s one thing I don’t hate,
Its loving you

Packed up my life
In little boxes in the back of a van
Hit the 295 when reality set in
I never thought I’d be this lost
This is my first day without a plan
I don’t know where I belong
But I’m finally alive, so I hope I’m meant to live
I hope I’m meant to live
Track Name: Guitar Strings
I wish I could restring my guitar
But I keep putting it off

Cause I gotta put food in my stomach
And gas in my car

I thought that if I got a new job
That it would make me feel better

And I’m still hanging onto that idea
I still haven’t restrung my guitar

Christmas is coming soon and
I wish that I could buy a few
Things to show what you mean to me
Can’t even buy strings for my guitar
Track Name: Narrow Mind
All my friends have enemies, at least thats what it seems
But I’m a sucker for forgiveness and apologies and coming clean
Burning bridges never was a habit of mine
The world is too small and I know I’ll cross again sometime

Our time is too short to keep a narrow mind
Track Name: The Universe Doesn't Want Me To Get Better
The universe doesn’t want me to get better
I’m always losing the race
Even when I get to the finish line
The wind is still in my face

All I wanna do is get my life together
But all I’m really good at is writing these songs
For what they’re worth, I think I’ve done better
But I need to represent how I’m doing with my life

The universe doesn’t want me to get better
I don’t even believe in fate
The hole I’m in is the one I dug myself
I gotta fix my mistakes

The universe doesn’t want me to get better
It’s really just me, maybe I just need to do better
Track Name: I'd Build A House
I’d build a house in the woods if I could
Just to spend some time offline

This cell phone is burning a hole in my pocket
With everyone else’s lives

And sometimes I like to sleep
And sometimes I like to forget about things

Our world is polluted with lights and sounds
Sometimes I wish I’d lived before distractions were around

And I could spend time with you
And no one would have to ask what we’re up to

I’d build a house in the woods if I could
If only I knew how to build a house
Track Name: DIY 'Till I Die
I’m on three years of self-recorded EPs
In my basement or bedroom
On tapes and CDs
I’d make the artwork
And then mix and then master
It may not be the prettiest
But I wouldn’t have it any other way

These songs belong to me
I wear them on my sleeve
They’re the ones that
iTunes and Spotify won't see
I’ll put this up on Bandcamp
To download for free
It won’t make me famous
But I wouldn’t have it any other way
Track Name: A Body In Motion
Day in and day out in the same cold town
Living is a chore when you’re this locked down
If we could, we’d be living loud in different places every night
But don’t we all want to escape the nine to five

Stage dives and pile-ups are calling out my name
As long as I’m in motion I will never go insane
Track Name: Life's Not All That Bad
She looked at me and said “it could be much worse”
“But it should be better”, I replied
But you woke up today and you made us both breakfast
Yesterday’s behind you and somehow you survived
If you get through tomorrow, the next day and another
We’ll be a few days closer to a New England summer

I know how the snow makes you sad
And what you’re going through isn’t helping

But life’s not all that bad
She told me even when you’re broken
Your heart is still golden
And life’s not all that bad
Don’t forget what you’ve been given
And don’t ever stop singin’
Life’s not all that bad

Me and all my friends, we’re stuck in this hole together
And it could tear us apart
Or we could work together, cause together we are stronger
We’re all hurting, who are we to hurt each other?

But life’s not all that bad
She told me even when you’re broken
Your heart is still golden
And life’s not all that bad
Don’t forget what you’ve been given
And don’t ever stop singin’
Life’s not all that bad
Track Name: Ten Years Old
When I was ten years old
My future seemed so clear
Grow up and go to college
Get a degree and a career

But my hearts not in it
And I can’t be confined
To the bandwagon of social norms
Dictating our lives

I’m mess, I’m a joke
My life’s gone up in smoke
But as long as I keep saying that
I’ll always feel alone

I’m so gone I wish I could feel ten years old

There’s this girl
And you wouldn’t believe
She’s a constant in my life
And she keeps me on my feet

Someday I wont be as
Distant as I seem
But at least I have her
And I hope that she has me

I’m quiet and I’m nervous
I don’t mean to let you down
But as long as I keep breathing
I’ll keep figuring myself out

I wish life could be as simple as when I was ten years old

Like before I got weighed down
By the truth of growing up
When I could talk to anyone
Before I lost my trust

Nothing is easy and I’m not ten years old
Track Name: In Conclusion
Well I guess that I’ll keep going
Another dollar, another day
And I guess that I’ll keep doing
What comes natural to me
Well I guess that I have no idea
What I’m supposed to do
To get this train on track so I’ll keep trying to make it move

Woa-oa-oa
I’m gonna do more tomorrow than I did yesterday
Woa-oa-oa
Life’s about getting up and doing it, you can’t live for the wait
Woo!
