A New Start 04:21
Lately I’ve been wasting time Spending all my very best thoughts On past lives Lately I’ve been marching in line And you are the only one Keeping time Show me an open road… and I’ll drive it Give me a darker path… and I’ll light it I want a new start, a new love that’s mine Lately I’ve been doing time For crimes I’ve only committed In your eyes Lately I’ve been out of my mind But I think I'm over it all This time Show me an open road… and I’ll drive it Give me a darker path… and I’ll light it I want a new start, a new love that’s mine Baby just please, please Please show me your heart please Please, I need somewhere to start, please Please show me your heart

Walking On 04:18
I will keep on walking Til I find the place I will be so stubborn I won’t be contained I’m walking on… Oh baby I keep walking on. Might have lost connection Seem like someone else Might have lost direction But it’s for my health I’m walking on… Oh baby I keep walking on. There’s nothing wrong you see You just have to let me be Oh baby… Oh baby I keep walking on. I will keep on walking Til my hair goes grey Til my feet get blistered And I’m seeing things I’m walking on…. Oh baby I keep walking on. Might have lost a few things Feeling so compelled To have kept a lock on every Heart I’ve held I’m walking on… Oh baby I keep walking on. I’m walking on… Oh baby I keep walking on. There’s nothing wrong you see You just have to let me be Oh baby… Oh baby Oh baby I keep walking on. I will keep on walking Til I find the place I will be so stubborn I won’t be contained I’m walking on… Oh baby I keep walking on. I’m walking on… Oh baby I keep walking on. There’s nothing wrong you see You just have to let me be Oh baby… Oh baby Oh baby I keep walking on.

You look like a friend But you could be pretending No I won’t say a word I won’t say a word Until you let me I won’t say a word I won’t say a word Until you let me in This could be the end This could be the start of something new No I can’t see ahead I can’t see ahead Until you let me I can’t see ahead I can’t see ahead Until you let me in You are the one I need The one I came here for You are the one I leave The one I’ll never know You are the one I see But I will never hold I won’t say a word I won’t say a word No I won’t say a word I won’t say a word Until you let me I won’t say a word I won’t say a word Until you let me in

It’s Sunday morning I watch you wake And shield the sunlight from your face Go shower, dress, and prepare Then tie up your pretty hair It’s Sunday morning I’m still in bed Taming thoughts that Run through my head Like how I need you more than I knew And how I’m scared I will end up alone I’ll fall back asleep And dream of of all the things that still haunt me Then I’ll wake up and I’ll go And I’ll start my day All on my own I’ll fall back asleep And dream of of all the things that still haunt me Then I’ll wake up and I’ll go And I’ll start my day All on my own It’s Sunday morning I watch you wake And shield the sunlight from your face Go shower, dress, and prepare Then tie up your pretty hair

Alaska Song 04:26
This time it went too far This time it left a scar This time my chest went numb And our world fell apart I don't know where to start I don't know who you are I can't go on if there's someone else This time it went too far I would've run to Alaska To get away from this To hide in the valley and Taste her sweet bliss But I knew that I couldn't Keep living like this With all of the anger The rage on our lips Where was the warning shot? Where was the shooting star? How did it get so bad? Why did we fall apart? I would've run to Alaska To get away from this To hide in the valley and Taste her sweet bliss But I knew that I couldn't Keep living like this With all of the anger The rage on our lips I'll run, I'll run, I'll run, I'll run away I'll leave, I'll leave, I'll leave, I'll leave today I'll run, I'll run, I'll run, I'll run away I would've run to Alaska To get away from this To hide in the valley and Taste her sweet bliss But I knew that I couldn't Keep living like this With all of the anger The rage... All the rage I would've run to Alaska To get away from this To hide in the valley and Taste her sweet bliss But I knew that I couldn't Keep living like this With all of the anger The rage on our lips All of the anger The rage on our lips

I’m sitting here freezing It really should be warmer now All that’s been said I don’t want any part of Cause it’s not up to me now It’s all in your hands I have done all that I can But I can’t fight There’s just too much at stake It’s a land mine And my body shakes It’s alright If you need a little break We all need some time We all need some time How many times Must we sit and stare So passive-aggressive We beat ourselves down Til there’s nothing there Cause it’s not up to me now It’s all in your hands I have done all that I can But I can’t fight There’s just too much at stake It’s a land mine And my body shakes It’s alright If you need a little break We all need some time We all need some time How is this happening? What am I to do? You won’t say anything He won’t leave you How will this ever work itself out? If nobody shouts Nobody ever shouts But I can’t fight There’s just too much at stake It’s a land mine And my body shakes It’s alright If you need a little break We all need some time We all need some time But I can’t fight There’s just too much at stake It’s a land mine And my body shakes It’s alright If you need a little break We all need some time We all need some time

Speed It Up 04:21
There’s a long road ahead of me Feels like miles and miles to go I wish there were an overpass To cut the corners and get me there real fast I wish I could speed it up I wish I could speed it up There’s a new world in front of me It goes for miles and miles I’m told If I could open up my heart I’d see that it was right there from the start I just had to open it up I wish I could speed it up Everything comes back to me The old, the new, the in between Everything comes back to me The old, the new, the in between I wish I could speed it up
