Track Name: It All Went Wrong
It doesn’t seem like it was long ago
We were bored and lonely wasted and alone
Did it matter what we’ve done? Just as long as it was fun
Now I don’t know where it all went wrong

The world around us it has changed it’s pace
I had to cancel all the plans that I had made
Never thought that I’d grow old, but so the story goes
Now I don’t know where it all went wrong

We might regret all the reckless fun
Will posterity say that we’ve done wrong?
Never harm that we have meant after all the money’s spent
Now I don’t know where it all went wrong
Track Name: California Sun
Waited for our love to grow
suppose I waited for too long
'cause all of that has come and gone
Remember how we used to touch
I've missed you some just not that much
'cause you were always in such a rush

Under the California sun
So many people on the run
And it feels so bad to feel so good
to not feel anything at all

On a street, or on a beach
you were always out of reach
In a crowd it's only me
Remember how we used to say
we'll make some friends just not today
now all of them have gone away

Under the California sun
So many people on the run
And it feels so bad to feel so good
to not feel anything at all

Would I try to track you down
But what if my search just gets derailed
Will anyone live to tell the tale
of how we used to feel
back in the day when love was real
now it's only a word you read

Under the California sun
So many people on the run
And it feels so bad to feel so good
to not feel anything at all

Under the California sun
So many people on the run
And it feels so bad to feel so good
to not feel anything at all
Track Name: Silent Words
Words are silent
how they travel through the air just like the wind
Disappearing when
There is no one reading on the other end
Let’s drop the conversation
I’ll just post a comment on your wall

Who am I to speak if
No one’s really speaking?
So who am I to change your mind?

Your lips move
But I can only hear the electricity
My eyes see
But the world is so far from my reality
I keep my distance
But what I need most is the touch of your sweet hand

Who am I to speak if
No one’s really speaking?
So who am I to change your mind?

Who am I to speak if
No one’s really speaking?
So who am I to say that anyone’s to blame?
So who am I?
Track Name: Fractures
Cracks below, cracks above
Cracks were everywhere we look
This is the end falling apart
It happens right before the start

Write a song, a chorus too
Something we can sing along
Well who will sing if no one leads?
The fractures swallow everything

If this life is nothing, let’s turn into something
There’s no reason we should hide
If we start with nothing, let’s turn it to something
Leave something meaningful behind

Fractures in what came before
It soon tumbles to the ground
Well mirror see, that it’s just me
The only thing holding me down

If this life is nothing, let’s turn into something
There’s no reason we should hide
If we start with nothing, let’s turn it to something
Leave something meaningful behind
Track Name: Diving Bell
Here alone in your diving bell
You’re fathoms deep in your wishing well
You can say what you want, do what you please
Are you awake or you lost in your dreams?
I’ll leave you alone and hope that you’re doing well

Into the depths a fading light
What is real, what is your mind?
You can say what you want, do what you please
Are you awake or you lost in your dreams?
I’ll leave you alone, alone in your diving bell

What would you do?
What would you do if no one
Comes looking for you?
Comes looking for you

When there’s not enough light to see
When there’s not enough air to breathe
You can say what you want, do what you please
And you’ll find out no one is listening
I’ll leave you alone, alone in your diving bell
Track Name: Lonely Like Me
Run around, pace the rest
Run around ‘til nothing’s left
When we talk you are out of breath
You would never kiss and tell
But would I ever know you well
Other than the face you want me to see?

All elusive, alone exclusively
When you go missing whose lips are you kissing? Wish they were me

Are you lonely just like me?
Are you lonely just like me?
Are you lonely just like me?

Face the music, fear the truth
Would I ever get to you?
Chasing after you are wandering
Your memory turns into a ghost
That is when I miss you most
If I could ever make you real

If I could find you could I remind you how
The girl that you were before you decided to be?

Are you lonely just like me?
Are you lonely just like me?
Are you lonely just like me?

All elusive, alone exclusively
When you go missing whose lips are you kissing? Wish they were me

Are you lonely just like me?
Are you lonely just like me?
Are you lonely just like me?
Track Name: I'm In Love
Well I know I don’t have too much to say
You’re never asking me to leave
When you’re here all the world it falls away
Leaving only you and me

If I sometimes act bizarre
And the words they come out wrong
If you wondered what the hell was going on
I’m in love, I’m in love

I am lost in a state of reverie
Collecting thoughts that I could find
Well I know you’re not much for brevity
Sometime I’d like to speak my mind

If I sometimes act bizarre
And the words they come out wrong
If you wondered what the hell was going on
I’m in love, I’m in love

If I sometimes act bizarre
And the words they come out wrong
If you wondered what the hell was going on
I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love
