Track Name: Growing Up & Getting Out
Lyrics:

And when you go away, so will the lump in my throat.
Cos you have become to me, a symbol for all that is wrong.
And you're so beautiful, that I feel that I, I just could never match up.
And this is my cowardly way of letting you know.
Telling you when it's too late.

Well I search in my mind but I just cannot find the words.
To let you know what you mean to me.
I tried and I failed, I tried and I failed again.
And I guess that we were destined to be just friends.

And it's not your fault that I feel this way.
But I wish that could make you see.
What all of your broken promises, what they have done to me.
And all of the times that I looked in your eyes.
And drowned in a sea of your smile.
And through all of this change, it feels so strange.
Learning to live without you.

Well I search in my mind but I still cannot the find the words.
To let you know what you mean to me.
I tried and I failed, I tried and I failed again.
And I guess that we were destined to be just friends.
I guess that we are just friends.
Track Name: Straight On Down Muscliffe
Lyrics:

It's 12am and I walk to your house.
And no one is around.
I search for a cliche in the sky.
To describe how I feel tonight.

This instinct that's inside of me.
This need to convey.
Gets stuck on repeat sometimes.
As this shitty town drags us down.

And all that we can do is try to carry though.
I'm making my way straight on down anyway.

And all of the reasons and so many ways.
No guarantees in this life.
And I like it that way.
And I know that it's what I do best to think too much.
So this time I'm not hanging on questions like "Could this be love?"

And all that we can do is try to carry though.
I'm making my way straight on down anyway.

It's 12am, and I'm at your door.
Track Name: Yesterday
Lyrics:

I held you in my arms, the one thing I know I want.
All around may change.
I just hope that this remains.

She is dancing to System again.
So I guess some things never change.

Slow and steady wins the race.
At least that's what I'm told.

I wonder if she dances the same way these days?
I wonder what became of all those people, all those places?

All those people that I never see.
All those people who remember me.
"16, clumsy and shy, well that's the story of my life."

Slow and steady wins the race.
I want it yesterday.
Track Name: Somewhere In Between
Lyrics:

Well I used to be so strong.
Nothing could get me down.
Somewhere in between the shades of grey.
Hope deserted me without a sound.

If you ask me what the problem is.
Don't expect the truth from me.
Cos a lie is what you really want to hear.
And the truth will out eventually.

And I just can't keep holding on to my past.
I can barely remember it.
I think it's time I spread my wings.

These are all the things I have inside my head.
These are all the things that I'll never say.
Maybe someday you'll begin to understand.
I just gotta get away.

"Try to describe it to the limit of my ability
Well it's there for a second, then it's given up what it used to be.
Contained in music somehow more than just sound.
This inspiration coming and lifting things around but
You always know that it's gonna have to go.
You always know that you'll be back in the cold.
Point of departure sublimated in a song.
It's always coming and giving me hope for just a second then it's gone but
Sound system gonna bring me back up.
The one thing I can depend on."
