Track Name: Tourist In My Home
in every breath i take and every choice i made
i didn’t think it would hurt me this bad
to the point where i tell myself,
"i need help"

and my night just grew long as my days just wear thin
you say you stand by faith, but you are filled with sin
i know we both grew up but we both grew apart
i wonder if things were broken right from the start

i never asked myself how far i’d let this go
i know that when i leave i’ll be a tourist in my home
Track Name: Candid
if i could name somethings that i had in my head
the first thing i would say would be the things you said
i could curse your name and spit out all these lies
but i’m not you or the boys you let between your thighs
this place is an epidemic of lies, never had i heard my name when you cried
but i still suffer the consequences, while you act collected and defenseless
all i wanted was to be respected, but i wasn’t the one that you selected
so get your things and get out my face, now you know you’re the one thing that i hate

but you’ll just run away from the ones that care
leave them with crossed arms and dead blank stares
while it’s midnight and you climb his stairs, the thought of that makes me gasp for air
i can’t see past this point, all you ever fucking do is disappoint
i can’t stay here and wait forever, you left your heart back in december

you fucking broke me down like i knew you would
i saw you sit on your throne as i watched and i stood
so you’ll try and find yourself in this mess you made
and i tried to help you, but you didn’t wanna be saved
so i’ll walk the same way home, the street down on sunburst
where we carved our date on the sidewalk with numbers
i don’t know who i am, i don’t know where i stand, and i’m too fucked to understand
but i’ll listen if you can’t

but you’ll just run away from the ones that care
and leave them with crossed arms and dead blank stares
while it’s midnight and you climb his stairs, the thought of that makes me gasp for air
i can’t see past this point, all you ever fucking do is disappoint
i can’t stay here and wait forever, you left your heart back in december
Track Name: What I Realized
i never thought that i would see you again
with your crooked smile and those perks i resent
but it seems like things are changing right before my eyes
you said you’d always love me, but we both know you lied

i gave a shit and you still packed all your stuff
i gave you the world, but enough is enough
now i know things are different, i know that you’re different
just know that i let go the next time you hear this

i never thought that i would be here alone
im just like a ghost now, i’m just here to roam
i know things are different, i know that i’m different
just know that i let go the next time you hear this

i gave a shit and you still packed all your stuff
i gave you the world, but enough is enough
now i know things are different, i know that you’re different
just know that i let go the next time you hear this

i know that next year i’ll move on from this rut
i’ll let time do it’s work and i’ll patch up this cut
Track Name: Sunburst
i know we promised that we’d keep in touch,
but if we keep ourselves in this water our bones will start to rust
i remember the days when we’d walk down sunburst st
where we carved our date in the concrete right below our feet
and we would talk about the pointless shit that happened throughout our day
now you won’t even call or fucking text me to wish me a happy birthday
and i could write a thousand songs about how lovely i thought you were
but this one’s about how it feels like to be left in the dirt

‘cause you’re the subject in every line i wrote and i wrote far too much
these lines are digging into my skin and your thoughts another open cut
so let me heal and you’ll just turn away and even if i beg to stay
you’re just another shade of gray and i hope it’ll be better off this way

i’m trying to stop the door from closing with my feet
and it’s crushing my toes, you’re crushing my hope
i don’t know my worth, but i know i’m not the worst
but you said i was, so then what are you?

‘cause you’re the subject in every line i wrote and i wrote far too much
these lines are digging into my skin and your thoughts another open cut
so let me heal and you’ll just turn away and even if i beg to stay
you’re just another shade of gray and i hope it’ll be better off this way

things don’t last
the road beneath my feet it stays cracked and laughs
at the steps i took towards your apartment
now i see, those two years didn’t mean anything to anyone but me
