Track Name: Be Free
Where do I belong?
Tell me why I'm here and what's taking this long
When can I move on?
I'm ready for confirmation to come

It's the first thought I compete with every morning
Before I'm even on my feet I pray and I repeat

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be

Where did I go wrong?
Give me back the years that are wasted and gone
Say you won't be long
I've been waiting here for salvation to come

It's the first thought I compete with every morning
Before I'm even on my feet I pray and I repeat

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be, be, be

I wanna be clear
Starting right here
I'm getting this act together
Whatever you wish
Top of my list
I'll make you this pact forever
I wanna be set free by whatever is holding me back
Show the way, show the way, show the way

Yeah

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be

I don't wanna be this
Don't wanna be that
Don't wanna give up
I wanna give back
I wanna be free by whatever means
Whatever you want from me I wanna be, be, be

I wanna be

I wanna be free by whatever means
Track Name: Save Me, Emily
Oh, no
Strong out the gate
Started great
Now you're leaving me low

Oh, no
Thought I could wait
Now it's late
And I'm leaving alone

I can't understand why I keep stalling
Baby, we both know you mean it
Don't want to be here, but I keep falling
Baby, we both know I need you to

Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm critical?
Save me, Emily

Yeah

Hey now
Why don't you treat me the same now
Now like you'd treat me before?

Tell me if the flame's out
Throw out my brain it's just a waste
I can't keep anymore

I can't understand why I keep stalling
Baby, we both know you mean it
Don't want to be here, but I keep falling
Baby, we both know I need you to

Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm critical
Save me, Emily

Hold on forever
Wake me whenever
Take these scars I'm healing for you
Hold on forever
Wake me whenever
Make me forever yours

Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm critical
Save me, Emily
No time for medical
Can't you see that I'm there
Save me, Emily

Yeah
Track Name: The Middle
Everybody's leaving soon
Gotta make my way back home
There's no conversation calming
The cold that's in my bones
There's no use speaking I couldn't talk to save my soul
Got no use breathing
I can see that I'm alone

Don't want you playing my heart like a fiddle
I want you treating me right
Don't want to be but I'm caught in the middle
I want to see you tonight

Is it too late to talk?
Would I only keep you up?
I know I'm crazy calling you only when I'm drunk
But can't explain just what every touch you leave me is like
My heart is reeling
I can feel it
I'm alive

Don't want you playing my heart like a fiddle
I want you treating me right
Don't want to be but I'm caught in the middle
I want to see you tonight

Don't want you breaking me open
Don't want you bleeding me dry
Don't want you tearing my heart into pieces
Like I believe that you tried

Don't want you breaking me open
Don't want you bleeding me dry
Don't want you tearing my heart into pieces
Like I believe that you tried

Don't want you playing my heart like a fiddle
I want you treating me right
Don't want to be but I'm caught in the middle
I want to see you tonight

Don't want you playing my heart like a fiddle
I want you treating me right
Don't want to be but I'm caught in the middle
I want to see you tonight
Track Name: Never Known
Tell me if you wanna see me tonight
You can let it roll, just see where the night leads
But if you're leaving alone, and I'm leaving too
I'll leave with you just ask
Is it so terrible?
I see what you like
You don't need to lie

Wake up in the morning, leave if you like
Think of all the other places you might be
But if you'll be there alone, like I'll be here soon
I'm easy to get back to
If you tell me I can leave you a light

You know you don't need my permission to go
Won't beg you to plead your position
You can stay if you're not itching to go
If I see where it's going
It's only got me wishing that I'd never known

You can be unknown to me if you like
You can be another stranger beside me
But if you're feeling at all like I'm feeling
Why leave if you don't have to?
What's so terrible with treating me right?

You know you don't need my permission to go
Won't beg you to plead your position
You can stay if you're not itching to go
If I see where it's going
It's only got me wishing that I'd never known
It's only got me wishing that I'd never known
It's only got me wishing that I'd never known

Baby, if I don't forget you remind me
Baby, if I don't forget you remind me
Baby, if I don't forget you remind me

Mmmm
Track Name: Tell Her
Button up
Batten down
Gotta brace for what's before me
Gotta do what's always scared me half to death

I'm pushing off
Setting out
Gotta make my way exploring
See the forest for the trees that I collect

So long
Tell me if there's something to know because I can't
Hold on to nothing

Tell her
Tell her I'm sorry I left when I did
But I felt the earth crumbling as she started to slip
And I knew then
I knew I would leave her

I'm cutting off
Blacking out
I gotta face my fears alone here
Gotta break these bonds and leave them for the wild

I'm smoking up
Passing out
Fight away my feelings for me
Gotta be this kind of creature for a while

So long
Tell me if there's something to know because I can't
Hold on to nothing
To nothing

Tell her
Tell her I'm sorry I left when I did
But I felt the earth crumbling as she started to slip
And I knew then, I knew I would leave her

Tell her
Tell her I'm sorry I left when I did
But I felt the earth crumbling as she started to slip
And I knew then

So long
So long
So

I wanna race out in the morning
I wanna see my future forming
I wanna see you
At a distance
From the top
