Track Name: One-Sixteen
I didn't know what to expect
in my freshman year of college
But you turned out to be my best friends
except the one who didn't bathe

Now we're all wrestling in the common room again
and late-night BK-runs have left us feeling sick

I don't even know
It seemed so inhuman
to write us up for building
a box fort and having fun

But we keep growing older
Despite how much we try
we struggle to keep our time

Why can't days like these
be more than just memories?
We struggle to keep our time
Track Name: Things Didn't Work Out
Every passing summer I think about
the things I never said
and the stupid things that I did say

I am not enough
I don't know how to live, to love
Why must I always be lost in reverie?

Will we ever meet again, my friend?
Will we ever meet again?

All I wanted to do and wanted to say
Couldn't find a way of escaping this cage
I saw the greener side but would not move my legs
I would not leave this place

To fall into your arms
To sing my song to everyone
and never fear the silence that left me on my own
And all I want is to free the melody inside
Waiting to live for all my life

You'll never find the joy you wanted 'till you're awake
You'll never find the joy you wanted in those dreams
Track Name: Early Years
In the summers of those early years
when things seemed to nourish and feed
I was caught in between two hearts:
A bright soul, a misdirection
If I only knew

I don't know how you ever returned to my life
It's no wonder I can't seem to find my way
when we fake everything

Time's away
And we have lost our love
I turn around and push you out of reach
but honestly that was not my intention
Did we ever have a chance

I don't know how you ever returned to my life
It's no wonder I can't seem to find my way
when we fake everything

You are an echo from my past,
a reminder of joys and regrets
But when winter's done I'll be different
and you'll be long gone

You permeate the air I breathe
You saturate all that I see
