Track Name: Days
shifting eyes
on that day my heart was set
why'd you go and change those ways
i never could forget

this place that we're living in
how it chased our dreams away
then you just had to fade away
so now nothing's making sense

we sang up on that stage, i never
stay forever, yeah
and when they left, i didn't follow
i'll wait for you instead

we still dream
when we're asleep
and when we wake
we live our days

looking back at all those
memories that we had
we both knew just how we felt
but I wasn't ready yet

time, it waits for no one
it goes on and on
and you were someone special
but we let the moment pass
like how the summer turns to ashes

we sang up on that stage, i never
stay forever, yeah
and when they left, i didn't follow
i'll wait for you instead

we still dream
when we're asleep
and when we wake
we live our days
Track Name: I Can't Stop Thinking About You
who am i to you
after all that we've been through
am i still the one you notice
always passing moments

did i fail to mention
that I fell asleep
on the shoulder of
my heart's desire

the failure i am you can't define
never again will you be mine

i'm just the boy who tried to fit in
constantly a victim of time
and when you looked at me
all i did was stare at you
is it any surprise how i feel so alone?

everyone approaches
'cause they like the way you move
as i sit here in the distance
watching us grow older
it's depressing how the story tried to save itself

the failure i am you can't define
never again will you be mine

i'm just the boy who tried to fit in
constantly a victim of time
and when you looked at me
all i did was stare at you
is it any surprise how i feel so alone?

maybe someday i'll get over you
maybe someday i'll be able to move

i'm just the boy who tried to fit in
constantly a victim of time
and when you looked at me
all i did was stare at you
is it any surprise how i feel so alone?
Track Name: Never Gave Up (feat. Lyra Tan)
i see you course across the street
all i thought that i needed was time
you used to walk with me
now it feels like we're drifting apart

you told me you'd never let go
(no i've not given up)
you told me you'd stay by my side
(and i always have)

and i watched as you crumbled
with the light from the moon
you were spinning in circles
and i thought we were through

then we gazed at the stars
with our hands intertwined
as you told me a whisper
like i never have ever believed

take me back
you're tearing me down

you were always the one that i needed
it was you whom i wanted to be with
wait a minute, you're saying
you never gave up on our love

i see you coursing towards me
when i thought it was over for good
you smile and set me free
and suddenly you want to talk

you told me you'd never let go
(no i've not given up)
you told me you'd stay by my side
(and i always have)

and i watched as you crumbled
with the light from the moon
you were spinning in circles
and i thought we were through

then we gazed at the stars
with our hands intertwined
as you told me a whisper
like i never have ever believed

take me back
you're tearing me down

you were always the one that i needed
it was you whom i wanted to be with
wait a minute, you're saying
you never gave up on our love
Track Name: Two Weeks of Aurora (Acoustic)
aurora
do you even think about the way i notice
everyday
know it's true that i can't live without you

when you're by my side
i wish that every moment lasts
you're the one I dream about, but you don't care
i don't blame you, you're with him

what do you say
someday
how it might be
you and me

i can't breathe
nightly
you're the only
one i see

aurora
it really hurts when you don't reply, but that's ok
i'm just the boy whom everyone took advantage of anyway
but i'm here to stay

no matter how long it takes
i'll be waiting
for the day you finally open up
to let me catch you when you fall

what do you say
someday
how it might be
you and me

i can't breathe
nightly
you're the only
one i see

hey
your perfect ways
you know i need you so

you
with your perfect ways
come into my soul

what do you say
someday
how it might be
you and me

i can't breathe
nightly
you're the only
one i see

your smile
our fate
the distance
we create

one chance
why did i let it slip?
now you're gone
it's too late
Track Name: Crazy
i woke up today
the clouds were in the way
so i brushed them aside
till the sun shone on my face

gotta get dressed
ignoring all this pain
i know it's beating in my chest
and it's giving me stress

step outside
face the world

crazy people never go away
crazy people living everyday

i thought i'd found
the love of my life
but as i grew older
i came to realize

when you're in the moment
it's hard to explain
until you wake up one day
with empty space

carry on
face the world

crazy people never go away
crazy people living everyday

crazy people can you go away
crazy people living everyday
Track Name: December
your eyes
they shine
they remind me
of the night

in december
when you cried
at your father's house
by the yard

broke your heart too much this time
you should find another guy
and it would take a miracle
for you to give me one more try

but you do
with an i love you

your smile
it lingers
when we say farewell
with a sigh

tomorrow
will it come
did we say our last
goodbye

broke your heart too much this time
you should find another guy
and it would take a miracle
for you to give me one more try

but you do
with an i love you
Track Name: Give Up
the mall is my favorite
bright white and fantastic
a year spent too painful
i love you, you don't care

(let me go)
tell me what to do
'cause i feel so lonely
i can't wait to leave this place
for good

mirror, just go home
i'm absent, waiting
i lie in my pretty apartment
on weekdays

(let me go)
tell me what to do
'cause i feel so lonely
i can't wait to leave this place
for good

everyone made it
i'm still here pathetic
phone calls don't make sense
the sound of my cute friends

(let me go)
tell me what to do
'cause i feel so lonely
i can't wait to leave this place
for good

crying gets boring
reality failing
the sharpness amazing
i smile for the last time

(let me go)
tell me what to do
'cause i feel so lonely
i can't wait to leave this place
for good
Track Name: The End
you accidentally called me last night
and ten minutes was all it took to confirm my doubts

about your happiness
your strange world of make-believe
you're better off with him
so don't pretend as if you love me still

i felt the rushing all around us
in every promise that we made
but then you smashed it into pieces

i saw it moving deep within us
the heart that never gave up
oh, how you smashed it into pieces

congratulations on your wedding day
the day we used to dream about in coffee shops after class

back when we were free
when there was only you and me
now you're with him and i'm with me
so let me drown in here and die alone

i felt the rushing all around us
in every promise that we made
but then you smashed it into pieces

i saw it moving deep within us
the heart that never gave up
oh, how you smashed it into pieces

so go through your motions
as i go through mine
you might be happy
but you'll regret it all in time

and i won't be there

i felt the rushing all around us
in every promise that we made
but then you smashed it into pieces

i saw it moving deep within us
the heart that never gave up
oh, how you smashed it into pieces
Track Name: We Built a Home (In Outer Space)
all the kids in factory clothes
they couldn't see you
didn't need you

frowned at all your t-shirts
how they mocked your every word
and action

as for me
i'd always see the way you'd run away in tears
until one day, you found a place
where you could change the way you felt

as for me
you always were the special friend i never doubted
you were there, and i was there
we built a home in outer space

winter came
the world went dark
they found your body in the shadows

laughed at how you
killed your sorrow
as they tried to get inside you

as for me
i stepped up on the windowsill and shut my eyes
with whispered cries, extended arms
i bade farewell to the world outside

as for me
you always were the special friend i never doubted
you were there, and i was there
we built a home in outer space

as for me
you always were the special friend i never doubted
now you're gone, it's so pathetic
everything has gone to waste
