Track Name: Rearview Mirror
When I heard the words I stood my ground
With just one kiss you made my head lose space and fall around
Some might say the weak becomes the prey and let us down
But in some other time and some other life you brought me round

It was a night like any other night
We walked in and I knew something there just wasn’t right
I hate to say the way you pray it suddenly felt so old
But I didn’t mind leaving you behind in spite

I’m speaking from my heart
I’m speaking with my head
The light that pushed me down
The pounding of my heart
Resounding in my head
The light that pushed me down

Given time foundations will decay
If you don’t take time to remould the clay
But on occasion they will raise themselves up from the ground
If it’s meant to be it will be again someday

When looking back you’ll find someone who feels so out of place
You try to reason with yourself eliminate just that one face
Track Name: Broken Boy
At that house in summer on your birthday
I could see it in your eyes that morning that something had changed
And despite the sunshine I wished it would rain
Because then maybe you wouldn’t leave me and never come back here
Back again

Broken boy, I didn’t want to fix you
I was happy being there for you
Broken boy, I had so much to give you
But I didn’t think you’d break me too

I would’ve waited for you however long it would take
I saw your heart when it was open and I saw my own heart break
But before you leave here please let me see your face
There’s nothing to do, nothing to say
But I still dream of you any, anyway

Broken boy, I didn’t want to fix you
I was happy being there for you
Broken boy, I had so much to give you
But I didn’t think you’d break me too

But for the first time I see trees burning and I’m still standing
And I wish you love more than anything
Although I’ll never see you again

Broken boy, I didn’t want to fix you
I was happy being there for you
Broken boy, I had so much to give you
I would’ve gone with you wherever you’d go
Broken boy, you know I still miss you
But I didn’t think you’d break me too
Track Name: September Sun
It’s always the same
When the sun clears the rain
And I think about the pain gone by
September’s here
And the future, I fear
Is all too clear for you and I

But don’t turn around and tell me that I was forgetting you
I know I’ll back down, but I won’t forget what I know is true
If I try to leave I know it’s the one thing you won’t allow
But do you still love me now?

I’m out in the grey
Carving my way
To a bright new day and a new life
There’s no looking back
To think about what I lack
But this beaten track never feels right

So just hold me close and tell me it’s all gonna be alright
I know how it goes, you’ll be the last thing on my mind
Do you believe we can weather the pain cause I don’t know how
You can still love me now?

But don’t turn around and tell me that I was forgetting you
I know I’ll back down, but I won’t forget what I know is true
If I try to leave I know it’s the one thing you won’t allow
But do you still love me now?
