Track Name: The Lonely City
(VERSE)

They say only the foolish stay up this late.
So come and be a fool with me
and I don't want to scare you this time.
If you could read my mind, what would it say?

(CHORUS)

A thought was lost somewhere back there
when the city was feeling lonely
hasn't this been the longest year?
I want the next to be more and just what I fear

(VERSE 2)

They say my love is hopeless and you agree
so come and sing this tune with me
but I don't want to scare you this time
If you could read my mind, what would it say?

(CHORUS)

A thought was lost somewhere back there
when the city was feeling lonely
hasn't this been the longest year?
I want the next to be more

and just what I fear
and just what I fear
and just what I fear
Track Name: Trying Really Hard
(VERSE)

People love talking about me
things I supposedly done and said
They live for the drama
and love to point the finger at me
people love talking about me
when I'm not around
why can't people mind their own and let me be

(PRE CHORUS)

Well I'll tell you why, I'll tell you why
Because most people are out to bring you down.

(CHORUS)

But I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
well I've been trying really hard, trying really hard
No I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
Still trying really hard trying really hard.

(VERSE 2)

I got a lot of issues on my back
too many problems from the past
from friends to family and living with my health
people say that they know me well and that I'll be fine

(PRE CHORUS)

But what do they know, what do they know
what do they know ?
Nothing about me apparently

(CHORUS)

But I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
well I've been trying really hard, trying really hard
No I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
Still trying really hard trying really hard.

(BRIDGE)

I've been abandoned from my family
I feel so lonely right now
I feel like no one is around
But one thing is for sure
That none of this is gonna bring me down.

(CHORUS)

Cause I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
well I been trying really hard, trying really hard
No I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
Still trying really hard trying really hard.


No I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
been trying really hard, trying really hard.
No I'm not gonna let this build up inside of me
Still trying really hard, trying really hard.
Track Name: Make It, Escape It, Erase It
(VERSE)

I've been sitting here thinking about things
some are good and some of which I never could have thought
It doesn't help that there's no one around to help me out
or to hear me talk. I'm getting sicker everyday and the pain
never seems to fade. I don't know how much longer I cant
take it, no I can not fake it no more no .

(VERSE 2)

I'm sick and tired of right now I stayed up all night somehow
barely can see at all. I'm worried about tomorrow are they
gonna keep me or let me go? Let me stay I hope.
My brain is runnin round right now somebody please just
help me out I don't know whats going on.
I gotta get outta this place, I gotta settle far away I gotta be strong.

(CHORUS)

I need to make it, escape it, erase it
but I'm gonna need some help along the way.
Everybody is gone so long but I gotta be strong
and seek a safer place. (X 2)

(VERSE 3)

I've been sitting, wishing, hoping, dreaming something good
is gonna come along. My head is spinning round and round
when everybody's up I'm down, out of here so so-long.
Pack my bags and leave this place so no one remembers my face
get the call and I'm gone.
I gotta get outta this place, I gotta settle far away, I gotta be strong.

(CHORUS)
I need to make it, escape it, erase it
but I'm gonna need some help along the way.
Everybody is gone so long but I gotta be strong
and seek a safer place. (X 2)
Track Name: One More Try (Stay)
(CHORUS)

We know I messed up but please just give us one more try.
You know I love you and your always on my mind.
Don't want another day without you by my side looking in your eyes
everything's alright, Just want you to stay.

(VERSE)

26 days, alone without seeing your face I made mistakes
you broke away from me now, how could that be?
Sorry for the way I was so jealous controlling every situation
dragging you down to hell, Us isn't a thing anymore
let me back into your heart and prove my love, we'll restart.

(CHORUS)

We know I messed up but please just give us one more try.
You know I love you and your always on my mind.
Don't want another day without you by my side looking in your eyes
everything's alright, Just want you to stay.

(VERSE)

Gave me all your love I pushed it away,
I forgot what it was like to feel wanted everyday.
I'm so used to being used, broken down, so abused
but then you come about and turn my whole world around.
You're the most important thing in my life I wanna show you
that I'm worth it, Prove to you I'm MR Right. I'm gonna fix
every broken piece in your heart, but we're gonna have to go
back to the start.

(CHORUS)

We know I messed up but please just give us one more try.
You know I love you and your always on my mind.
Don't want another day without you by my side looking in your eyes
everything's alright, Just want you to stay.


We know I messed up but please just give us one more try.
You know I love you and your always on my mind.
Don't want another day without you by my side looking in your eyes
everything's alright, Just want you to stay.
