Track Name: Where I Left It
I never meant to fall apart

I don't remember how it happened

I lost a piece of me somewhere

And I don't know where I left it

But I swear I'm gonna find it

And fix it

I'll retrace all my footsteps
Track Name: As Good As It Gets
I spent the night in a truck stop parking lot

Just to be anywhere but home

And you called me as you watched me from around the corner

While I was sitting in a photo booth alone


And it's the sweetest thing that anyone's done for me

I keep the pictures with the coupons close in the passenger seat

And for a week I sort of fell for you

And convinced myself that maybe you could fall for me


But when I poured my guts out in metaphor

You said you didn't know what to say but it's probably for the best

Cause either way when I get home from tour

You'll be halfway across the state and I'll still be a mess


And I guess this is as good as it gets for now

My friends keep telling me to just wait it out

Can't we pretend for the night that I'm something worth your time

Can't we pretend for the night


I said that if I ever meet and you told me I meant when

I guess I just got hopeless I wonder when that happened

I said that if I ever meet and you told me I meant when

I guess I just got hopeless I wonder when that happened


Jolynn keeps telling me I'm dragging my feet

I guess I've always been that way

I stopped watching the sun come up over the Kankakee

When you couldn't stay awake to watch it with me


And I guess this is as good as it gets for now

My friends keep telling me to just wait it out

Can't we pretend for the night that I'm something worth your time

Can't we pretend for the night


I never wanted to fall

I knew you wouldn’t catch me

Let’s not pretend like I ever thought you were something that would make me happy

I never wanted to fall

I knew you wouldn’t catch me

I knew you wouldn’t catch me


I never wanted to fall

I knew you wouldn’t catch me

Let’s not pretend like I ever thought you were something that would make me happy

I never wanted to fall

I knew you wouldn’t catch me

At least you gave me something to fall for


And I guess this is as good as it gets for now

My friends keep telling me to just wait it out

I’m done waiting around

Can't we pretend for the night that I'm something worth your time

Can't we pretend for the night that I’m something worth your time

Can’t we pretend for the night

That for once this all works out and I’d be good enough this time
Track Name: Eventually
When I was only three

I used to dream

About a girl

Hand in hand

She'd run from all of the monsters with me

Then I grew up

And all of the monsters got bigger

And she never showed up


It's so hard without you here

I'm so dependent dear

I need you to hold me together

But you'll show up eventually

And I'll wait for you forever


Adolescence left me buckled at the knees

But I picked myself up and tried to teach myself to be happy

I came to expect so many things that would happen to me

I built up a lifetime in my head a perfect little fantasy


It helped to have something to look forward to

It helped to believe that I was waiting for you

But you can only wait so long until it all seems pointless

And I spent too much time ignoring the problems

Just waiting for someone else to come and fix this


It's so hard without you here

I'm so dependent dear

I need you to hold me together

I'll give you another year

I'll just avoid my fears

And wait for you to come make it better

Cause you'll show up eventually

And I'll wait for you forever
Track Name: We’ll Always Have Each Other
Dear me

Six years ago today

You were always holding out for something

And it just never came


And I'm sorry

I'm sorry for where we're at

I'm sorry I never figured out

How to not be so fucking sad


At least I can promise that we'll always have each other

But I can't promise I won't ever let you down

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than this

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than


Dear me

I know how hard it's been

But you can’t just let it win

You have to keep on fighting


I know that you’re not much for conflict

But life's gonna throw some fists

Just don't let it get the best of you

You have to save the best for something more than this


At least I can promise that we'll always have each other

But I can't promise I won't ever let you down

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than this

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than


Dear me

Don't forget about the good that you've got

Whether you like it or not

It's not as bad as you make it seem

Cause it's all in how you look at things

And when you figure that out then you'll be happy


And I swear to you that we will always have each other

And you can sleep at night knowing I’ll never let you down

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than this

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than this

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than this

Just don't forget to pretend that it gets better than
Track Name: Cheap Seats
Why is no one awake right now

I've been making myself sick

I keep throwing up in the basement


At least I'm getting something out

I'm taking turns spilling guts onto paper

And spilling guts onto the ground


So I wrote a couple pages out

And I tried to lay down

I wrote a couple pages out

And tried to lay down


But I don't sleep

I just lay here and think

And let every little thing

Cave in on me

Tell me I’m not drowning

Cause I can’t breathe

This isn't what I wanted

This isn't who I'm supposed to be


Why am I still awake right now

I stopped drinking coffee

But I don't think it helped


I'm sick of always getting anxious and driving around

Gas isn't getting cheaper

And there's nowhere to go in this town


So I wrote a couple pages out

And I tried to lay down

I wrote a couple pages out

And tried to lay down


But I don't sleep

I just lay here and think

And let every little thing

Cave in on me

Tell me I’m not drowning

Cause I can’t breathe

This isn't what I wanted

This isn't who I'm supposed to be


I need to figure myself out

I need to pick up all these pieces

There's a bigger picture here

And someday I'm gonna see it

And I’m sure it's fucking gorgeous

It has to be

This is just a smudge in the corner

These are just the cheap seats
Track Name: Footsteps
I’ve been happy here before

I’ll be happy here again

I’ll wait it out in this truck stop parking lot

‘Til everything makes sense

I’ll retrace all my footsteps

I’ll retrace all my footsteps
Track Name: Back Roads
I've been driving thirty down these back roads all damn year

I've been driving past my house and thinking of never going back there

I turned down state line and took the wrong way home

Cause I can't stand the thought of spending another night in bed alone


I can't do it again

I don't want to wake up all alone

I'd rather sleep parked here on the train tracks

And never have to go back home


I'm no stranger to staying up late, shaking with chest pains, and cursing at myself

But it's been so much worse these last few months

And the help groups just don't help


I'm not breaking I think I already broke

Somewhere out on the east coast

I thought it'd help to not be so alone

But I was all caught up in people and places I didn't know

I felt stranded

I didn't know where to go


Now I find myself needing to be alone

I never used to be that way

I've been ignoring my cell phone

I've been hiding away

I feel so uninspired

I feel so out of place


I can't do it again

The backseat was fucking torture

Just trying to hold myself together

With the van a fucking mess and me not any better


I'm no stranger to staying up late, shaking with chest pains, and cursing at myself

But it's been so much worse since I got back

And the help groups just don't help


I’m taking detours to work ‘cause 55's been closed all year

I ‘m just trying to find a better way to get there

And I guess my head's sort of in the same place I just can't get where I need to be

But I'm gonna keep on trying to get there I'm gonna try to fix me


I’m taking detours to work ‘cause 55's been closed all year

I’m just trying to find a better way to get there

And I guess my head's sort of in the same place I just can't get where I need to be

But I'm gonna keep on trying to get there I'm gonna try to fix me
