Track Name: Three AM
another three am
in this lit, lonely room
somehow I believe the clock could stop turning
another bored, frozen night
slim chance to fall asleep soon
could these bags under my eyes be my undoing

maybe it's my fault that I'm up so late
maybe it's because of things I thought of today
maybe I'll never think of the right words to say
but regardless, the morning seems so far away

I found another hole in my shirt
but these stains on my mind
are the real reasons I'm awake tonight
it's unhealthy, I'm sure
to be conscious weekends at a time
to be this alone with just your thoughts, it just isn't right

maybe it's my fault that I'm up so late
maybe it's because of things I thought of today
maybe I'll never think of the right words to say
but regardless, the morning seems so far away
Track Name: Through Your Eyes (acoustic)
you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

I can't remember if I ever made a sound
that gave you any reason to stick around
I felt the waves crash down onto my back
my shoulders gave way, I'm laying flat

my bed is colder from now on
my life is showing me that I wasn't so wrong
but I can't get over what we had
all these damn pictures are just weight on my back

you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

there are things I never felt need to express to you
(I watched it all fall apart as I stood still)
but now I'm bent over backwards trying to talk to you
(my world's flying by my eyes like a bullet through the air)

you gave me every reason to believe
that it would be alright
that everything would be alright

you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

these images that run through my head
I just wanted a chance to explain
you said everything would be alright, you lied
and said everything would be alright

you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

I saw you run from my arms to his
and now I thought what it does to me
so now I've come back to this
I gave you up when I saw you leave
