about

Thank you to anyone who helped us in the production of this EP and of course, you, for purchasing it and taking a listen. We hope you enjoy.

Track Name: Get It Right (I'm Trying)
Stoned out of his mind in his room
just thinking of you,
wishing that he hadn't fucked up last night.

I'm sorry for the dreams
that I planted in your head
and I'm sorry that I couldn't fulfill them.
But if easy's all you want,
then you're not the one for me.
No, you're not one I need
and I see it.

I'm not trying to annoy you, (whoa oh oh)
I'm just trying to pass the time. (whoa oh oh)
I never meant to be a bother,
But for now I'm trying to get it right.

To get it right
I'm just trying to get it right

Guess I'm the one that broke your heart
And that's all I'll ever be.
But the fucked up part is I don't regret it.
And I guess I should've stayed away,
shouldn't have called you up that day.
Stuck in full regret and I just can't stand it.

I'm not trying to annoy you, (whoa oh oh)
I'm just trying to pass the time. (whoa oh oh)
I never meant to be a bother,
But for now I'm trying to get it right.

To get it right
I'm just trying to get it right

I'm not trying to annoy you, (whoa oh oh)
I'm just trying to pass the time. (whoa oh oh)
I never meant to be a bother,
But for now I'm trying to get it right. (2x)
Track Name: Year That Tore Me Apart
This year
has been just tearing me apart,
I wanna wake up and restart
the past four months.
'Cause I'm sick,
of feeling trapped inside a room,
nothing inside me but the gloom
of sinking so far down again. (2x)

So just be there when I need a friend.
I'm sinking so far down again. (2x)

I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I need help.
I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I just can't keep lying to myself.

A robbery in the back parking lot
just took my trust in humans and ripped me apart.
A sucker punch to the face
made me get out of that place.

So just be there when I need a friend.
I'm sinking so far down again. (2x)

I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I need help.
I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I just can't keep lying to myself.

(No, I just can't keep lying to myself!)

Who knew that sinking down could be so uplifting?
And who knew that in my darkest hour,
I'd be singing?
When they tried to strangle me, with religion.
But you're too intoxicating, too suffocating to notice.

So just be there when I need a friend.
I'm sinking so far down again. (2x)

I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I need help.
I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I just can't keep lying to my-
I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I need help.
I ran out of time (I ran out of time)
And I just can't keep lying to my,
I just can't keep lying to my,
I just can't keep lying to myself.
Track Name: Brother
Take a right off Cherry Hill,
About a mile past Pizzaville,
is where you'll find me,
alone and insecure.
My only wish is we could chill.
I'm claustrophobic off these pills.
They've got me locked up like an animal.

You say you're trying to protect me.
And then you go and try to break my soul.
And I'm just waiting to be set free,
so I can finally go home.
Beating on a broken heart,
never gonna solve it, broke your little locket.
Open arms
Better on the pocket, cleaning out the closet now.

Do you remember way back when,
that September we first met?
On East Broad Street,
where half our minds were spent.
And last summer when I was at the beach,
you drove three hours just to meet.
Came home and messed shit up,
just like no one's ever seen.

You say you're trying to protect me.
And then you go and try to break my soul.
And I'm just waiting to be set free,
so I can finally go home.
Beating on a broken heart,
never gonna solve it, broke your little locket.
Open arms
Better on the pocket, cleaning out the closet now.

And I'm never letting go
And you're gonna listen to me. (4x)


Take a right off Cherry Hill,
About a mile past Pizzaville,
is where you'll find me,
alone and insecure.
My only wish is we could chill.
Because I'm claustrophobic off these pills.
They've got me locked up like an animal.
Track Name: Found & Lost
Let's skip forward to the day,
the day when this pain fades away.
When we're gone and I won't
see your face, see it anymore.

When they cut straight to the bone,
the season started to change.
Then they tore right up the script,
and my life got rearranged.
So what happens now?
And where are we to go?
I'll keep walking 'cause I've got nothing to show.
And I'll wipe my hands
of what's left of you.
'Cause you're looking for me and
I don't know what to do.

They just burnt the bridge,
so you'll never cross again.
And two flares shot up to the sky
so you know right where I've been.
Don't get me wrong,
I've been missing her every second of my day.
But this is what can happen,
when the bad guys get their way.

So this is how things had to be,
and she's not coming back to me.
And if this is where we go,
I guess that I'll never know
just what happened here.
And what have you done?
Sitting in the corner with this loaded gun.
And I'll wipe my hands
of what's left of you
Cause she's looking for me and
I don't know what to do.

They just burnt the bridge,
so you'll never cross again.
And two flares shot up to the sky
so you know right where I've been.
Don't get me wrong,
I've been missing her every second of my day.
But this is what can happen,
when the bad guys get their way.

So far, but I keep you close.
You might give up, but you know I wont
ever let you go.
Once more for the world to see,
you belong right next to me.
Right next to me.

They just burnt the bridge,
so you'll never cross again.
And two flares shot up to the sky
so you know right where I've been.
Don't get me wrong,
I've been missing her every second of my day.
But this is what can happen,
when the bad guys get their way (2x)
Track Name: Easy to Fall (feat. Nailah Vazquez)
Every past mistake I've made
has led me right to you.
And boy, my heart could write a book
of disasters I've been through.
I'm just scared of how I feel
putting my shoulder to the wheel,
just to see if maybe
we'd have it all.

And I think she's gonna let me fall today.
And I'll be here with open arms to pick up the remains.
And I think she's gonna let me fall today.
Gravity's got nothing on the games you like to play.

Let the hours pass by so much faster again.
They only do when I know you're calling at ten.
But lately, I've been feeling like I'm at my wit's end.
'Cause she got into my brain,
yeah she crawled into my head.
And I think you just enjoy,
messing with a lonely boy,
'cause you know that he'll be easy to fall.

And I think she's gonna let me fall today.
And I'll be here with open arms to pick up the remains.
And I think she's gonna let me fall today.
Gravity's got nothing on the games you like to play.

And the difference between boys and girls,
boys fight, then forget it.
And girls make you regret it
for the rest of your lives.
Holding on to nothing,
for the sake of nothing,
just so nothing becomes something in the mind of someone else.

And I think she's gonna let me fall today.
And I'll be here with open arms to pick up the remains.
And I think she's gonna let me fall today.
Gravity's got nothing on the games you like to play.
Track Name: Not Your Perfect Boy
I'm the man,
she's the plan,
that's the way that it's gotta be.
And I can't give her my heart
because she's already got it.
Anyway, I will say,
maybe she, won't notice.
And I can't give her my all
because that's just what she is.

So sorry I am not what every magazine says I should be.
I'm just a human and I'm not a fucking toy.
And so what, I am not Prince Charming, and I'll never be.
So just get over it and give me a chance.

And I'm screaming 'cause she's dreaming
for anyone but me.
And it's kind of hard to swallow 'cause she's everything I need.
And I hate it when she smiles 'cause it's empty like my soul,
sort of like the silence when you left me in the cold.
And I could reveal,
a crazy kind of love,
for a special kind of girl.
It's the certain type of love, where it's boy against the world.
She'll be watching over shoulders,
she's pretending not to notice but,

Sorry I am not what every magazine says I should be.
I'm just a human and I'm not a fucking toy.
And so what, I am not Prince Charming, and I'll never be.
So just get over it and give me a chance.

Oh a chance.
Yeah a chance.
A chance

And if you'd be with me tonight,
then I'll be alright.

I'll be alright (4x)

Sorry, my darling,
you could never understand the pain I'm feeling.
And sorry,
that I couldnt be everything you need.
'Cause I am only a man
And I'll long for your affection forever.
'Cause your love is the ultimate treasure.
And we'll fall to eternity past as the Earth
shatters like glass right below my feet.

So sorry I am not what every magazine says I should be.
I'm just a human and I'm not a fucking toy.
And so what, I am not Prince Charming, and I'll never be.
So just get over it and give me a chance. (2x)

Sorry, I am not what every magazine says I should be.
I'm just a human
And I'm not your perfect boy.
