Teenage Luv 04:39
I had lots of trouble getting through to you Every time we tried to talk you shut me down You never liked to hear the truth Every time we suffered you were quick to blame Making me apologize for simply living I held all the shame I am more than worth your time I am now free to be alive For a time I wondered if you were okay I thought any moment could turn into the day You crossed the line Now I notice that I barely think of you Slowly I’m erasing every trace of memory From my mind I am more than getting by I am now free to be alive I'm getting better every day I am making my own way I knew all along that it would never last My mistake was staying long after I should have left I should have left Now someone who use to be my best friend Is so broken that they can’t stand to see my face We’re closer now to the end Someday things will start looking up We’ll write us off as teenage luv

Take a No 03:47
There are rules we’re taught To keep us safe To keep us sane There’s a code we wrote That you knew Memorized it too Did you see right through me? When I broke I am broke Do you have to do, do, do what you, you, you do Please just go Take a no What can fix me now That you came And walked away Is there anything to be done You already won Did you see right through me? When I broke I am broke Promised that you were safe Took my time and my space I am sick I am sick Do you have to do, do, do what you, you, you do Please just go Take a no Nooooooooooooo I am broke I am broke Promised that you were safe Took my time and my space I am sick I am sick Do you have to do what you do Please just go

Boy Scout 03:02
I have fallen, I have fallen into this sick game It makes me think I’m setting the rules Guess I’m the one to blame How did I get out of this one, last time I was here? Well, that’s right I stuck it out for three years I didn’t mean it, mean for this to happen Can we turn back now? Not that I regret it but I wanna forget it Dear Goddess, show me how I fear it's too late, don’t know how to communicate Toss me that number 2, maybe it can help me erase Got to back out now I’m in too deep and I’m ready to drown Turn down, this noise is way too loud I don’t have time to figure this out Time to bounce boy scout We can keep pretending, hope there's a happy ending But the pages are wearing thin Time to shut the book won’t take a second look Superheroes don’t always win The beginning is sweet, and the middle's where we grow Forget the ending cause that’s everything I don’t wanna know Got to back out now I’m in too deep, and I’m ready to drown Turn down, this noise is way too loud I don’t have time to figure this out, no I don’t have time to figure this out so Bye bye, boy scout Bye bye, boy scout Maybe it’ll last in another life Maybe next time we can get it right Bye bye, boy scout Time to bounce boy scout

Here I Go 04:03
You wouldn’t try When I was rotting away and dying How could you know This is goodbye I always thought I would be crying But here I go Here I go Here I go I tried for so long But you refused to ever listen And now you’ve lost And I’m better off There’s nothing that I will be missing So here I go Here I go Here I go Here I go Here I go Here I go Leave it alone Leave it alone Leave it alone Leave it alone I’m headed home I’m headed home You won’t see me no more You won’t see me no more Well I’m out the door Just close your eyes When you wake up say I was just a dream Cause that’s all I’ll be

Otra vez Se te olvido Mi corazón no es diversion Ahora estoy Aguantando Esperando tu destrucción Porque yo se Que tú no vez Que sin mi tú no eres nada Y otra vez Escúchame Que sin mi tú no eres nada Tú veras Que nunca mas Me encontraras derrotada Tú creerás Que tienes mas Poder atrás de tu arma Pero yo se Que tú no vez Que sin mi tú no eres nada Y otra vez Escúchame Que sin mi tú no eres nada No comprendes que ya perdiste todo Perderme a mí es perder todo Pero yo se Que tú no vez Que sin mi tú no eres nada Y otra vez Escúchame Que sin mi tú no eres nada Porque yo se Que tú no vez Que sin mi tú no eres nada Y otra vez Escúchame Que sin mi tú no eres nada No eres nada

Capo II 03:34
Call me what you want Say what you will say Tell me how I was nothing but lies Send a message out, another heartfelt cry What did you expect me to change my mind? Cause it wouldn’t even be the same If I tried to go home again My life is all rearranged And I keep thinking of all the things you said And you find some delight in pain Wanna make me like you again But both of us know that I’ve changed Gotta get me out of your head Why do we still fight? You're no concern of mine Give me one excuse why this is alright And yeah its kinda weird we may not talk again Right now I'm so upset, I might not even care Cause it wouldn’t even be the same If I tried to see you again My heart is all rearranged And I keep thinking of all the shit you said Plus you’re happier in pain Wanna make me hate me again But both of us know that I’ve changed Gotta me out of your head Get you of my head It’s all over now Our one hundredth goodbye What did you expect me to change my mind? Cause it wouldn’t even feel the same If I tried to love you again My head is all rearranged I can’t forget the awful things that you said Plus you’re not alone in pain Don’t make me hate you again Cause I'm trying hard to change Gotta get me out of your head

Hey Molly 02:51
Hey Molly I need a favor again I can’t tell where I’m at I’m counting on you to have my back Hey Molly it’s me I’m outside your door I’m losing everything I thought by now you’d come looking for me Oh Molly won’t you please take me home? I don’t wanna be alone I can’t make it on my own Come take me home Hey Molly I know I’m calling a lot Just wondering how you’ve been I haven’t seen you since I don’t know when Hey Molly are you listening to me? You said you’d come around Guess you’re too busy or feeling down Oh Molly can’t I please take you home? I don’t wanna be alone I can’t make it on my own I’ll take you home I’m waiting for you tonight Wishing I was by your side Oh Molly won't you please take me home? I don’t wanna be alone I can’t make it on my own Come take me home Hey Molly I’ll take the hint

Stay 04:31
The sun doesn't touch my skin The blinds stay closed so do the chords Nothing gets out or in I need a bit less to B some more I could try to leave this room today Make the world a little less grey I could really brighten up the day Yes I know I could find my way but I'll stay Stay here to reach my dreams To make the world a little more clean I'd have to leave Probably achieve world peace If I could go to where the people need me Can't stay locked away when you're the key The light fades in and out I stay the same, there is no change I ask how 'bout now? I fear the wind's still a bit strange I could pack up and run far away Find a new home in a new place They could make me mayor for the day Then elect me so that I'll stay there Fix up the town Take each frown, turn it upside down I'm homeward bound After I achieve world peace When I get to where the people need me Can't stay locked away when you're the key The list goes on and on Where I make right of wrong Why am I taking so long? I will do it all A climb that high must worth the fall And maybe I'll die Doing what's right I can say I put up a good fight Can't take me down I come back around Cause it was me who built this town And I won't leave Probably achieve world peace Once I go to where the people need me Could walk away But it's more important that I stay I could try to leave this room today
