Track Name: Shameful Shipwreck
Sometimes I get the feeling, you're sitting next to me
Other times you seem so far away
Like canvas spread tight cross a frame, just about to tear
Waiting for your brush to stroke my face

Now I've survived some harsh life lessons, hope this one's soon past
Cuz I've fought on for far too long, my tear stained flag half mast
But I know I'll get through, in the end

I find no shame in shipwrecks, much more than six feet down
Knowing that the captain's down below
But some find empty vessels there, and those I do abhor
Knowing of the fear that took control

For I sunk down, down to the depths and saw your silhouette
Forsaking me and on your own, in the salty sea I wept
Left dark, cold, and alone, where's the end?

Trapped inside some empty house, it's no longer a home
I haunt it as a living, breathing ghost
There is no holy bastion here, to keep my thoughts from you
Evenings still wear ever on, morose

My bloodshot eyes burn day and night while staring straight ahead
I can't accept the best has passed and left me here instead
I won't allow this to be the end
Track Name: A Love Letter
I can never find the right words to say, but you seem to love me anyway
You've got me writing sunny, with no cloudy thoughts in my mind
Without a single desire to find something to hide behind
You and I always being so near, we'll make this a happier year

And seeing your face light up my phone, Makes me feel a little less alone
What can I ever do to deserve this? I don't know.
But there're some things that I'm sure of, though
With you by my side, life's alright... it's alright.
In fact it's beautiful.
Oh you're so beautiful.

Sometimes we get confused and crash
Sometimes I don't know how much time will pass
Til you're back in my arms with your hand in mine
(with me) Whipsering, so gently... "everything will be fine"

Small things that brighten up my day. come with every single word you say
I know I'm singing in cliches, it's not my fault that they're true
Your eyes are like stars and your kiss, an angels touch, drawing me closer to you
Just knowing that you want to be with me, I can go on living happily

Your beauty marks me more with every glance, taking us every day deeper in romance
All the late nights lying in the park, warm still without the sun
Make me glad that I'm with you, I'd prefer you to anyone
With you by my side, life's alright... it's alright.
In fact it's beautiful.
Oh you're so beautiful.

Sometimes we get confused and crash
Sometimes I don't know how much time will pass
Til you're back in my arms with your hand in mine
(with me) Whipsering, so gently... "everything will be fine"
Track Name: Swan Song
You know I've never felt so alone, as when I know you're at home, with him
And I know you know the way I feel, cuz mine was an easy heart to steal, easy as sin

You never ever leave my mind, your memory a master unkind, every night
Those nights that I lie awake, plagued by a feeling that I can't shake, I don't feel right

So this night I sing to you our swan song, my final thoughts to you
You're nothing more than a falling morning star, I've wished on far too long
You see me as nothing more than a pariah, worthless through and through
I'll never shine your pedestal again, I'm gone
You were once the very pick and flower, of beauty and of power, over me
But you used it to make me ill, what could have been used to heal, a remedy

A withering rose crushed tight in hand, seems to always have been your plan, a plan ungodly
As I crumble now down to the floor, I don't remember what I loved you for, but now I'm free.

So this night I sing to you our swan song, my final thoughts to you
You're nothing more than a falling morning star, I've wished on far too long
You see me as nothing more than a pariah, worthless through and through
I'll never shine your pedestal again, I'm gone

I'm sure I'm not the last
Your ways aren't in the past
When you hear this I'm sure you'll laugh
But at least I'll know I'm finally off the path
That leads to you

So this night I sing to you our swan song, my final thoughts to you
You're nothing more than a falling morning star, I've wished on far too long
You see me as nothing more than a pariah, worthless through and through
You'll never see your pedestal again, I'm gone
