Track Name: Month
Hard times rest at best but they never pass.
Well, I have promised myself I'll never come back down there
but now, here I am again...
And Ned said "this swamp has always been waiting for us".
We know we can't go through this without getting our hands dirty and stained forever.

If it's the only way I will die here.

Am I asking me again questions built on my perhaps?
Yes I am, and this is making up my sloth, it looks like cleverness.
But I still believe this will never tear me apart
cause I'll always keep on following my heart.

As in every romance I was worried about
the beginning as well as the ending.
But the first time I came in your apartment,
I got scared this time could have been different.
Now I look back at you leaving me in bed with the Kings of Convenience singing in the background "one of us misread".
I sat my head at rest, now it happened again. Nothing's different.

What am I asking for if I don't even consider the answers anymore?
Obsessed with coincidences I'm waiting for my shallow desire of being alone to come back and ruin it all, like everytime at the end of my month.
Track Name: Wild Years
Some nights I feel my head
sinking in hell and getting back.
And this knot in my throat
It's like I miss the things that make me a man.

If I look back, I just spent a rainy life with foggy friends
And I guess I was afraid to live it my way.

To face up these days I should get a punch in my chest or
let it go just like the old times.
Here on Earth, in this spot, or any place I will belong
I won't let my bones die lonely on nights like these.

I saw the bottom close to me everyday
like I had an anchor at my feet.
I saw my friends growing up becoming just like anyone else.
I don't wanna end up in something I've never believed in.

Passion dragged me through these wild years.
Track Name: Cold Summer
It's 59 degrees
and the cracks on these streets won't' help me
staying calm in the backseat
while I'm thinking about how we got here
and how this hole became so cold
it took me years to gain some clarity
but now I'm scared, I've got no plans…

I guess I'll just put off again…cause that's what I always do.

Life has just washed us away
by the time we leave
this place will fall apart
As if there was another way
did this town grow up, or did I?
I honestly don't know…
I'm not sure if I'm done yet
I'm not ready to say goodbye
all I know is that I'd be missing the summer nights here.

I've been hanging yellow notes around my room
hoping that they will turn into something I would be proud of
they say I should live in the "now" but hey, I always feel I'm one second behind my own life, never fully present.

Life has just washed us away
by the time we leave
this place will fall apart
As if there was another way
did this town grow up, or did I?
I honestly don't know…
I'm not sure if I'm done yet
I'm not ready to say goodbye
all I know is that I'd be missing the summer nights here

and through half closed eyes we'll realize we don't need big plans
as long as we'll keep these memories safe
like playing flip cup with Ben, Jen and Katie
or the tequila nights at LEX (hard laughs due to this drunk honesty)
And when shit gets bad
we'll give "The Upsides" another spin
and even though we hardly get along
we'll keep looking for reasons to call this place home.

(Things will never be the same. I'll come back to catch my breath. I kept my distance but I've never felt this close)
Track Name: Behind My Fence
Even though I know that I have to move on
and find the courage to leave this safe spot
behind my fence and grab my life by the hands
I promise myself that I'll never think about my sad past
I promise to bring the best with me

Cause most nights fade out
like I don't have a chance to sleep in bed
It's not the pillow or the dark ceiling
a bunch of fast songs drive me through hell and back
I just need a way out but I can't find it all alone.

Five years with a purpose and none of them are wasted.
Moving on is what I need to leave behind wild years.

Cause most nights fade out
like I don't have a chance to sleep in bed
It's not the pillow or the dark ceiling
a bunch of sad songs drive me through hell and back
I just need a way out but I can't find it all alone.

I'm not sad, just overthinking
and so upset cause nights here get longer.
Track Name: All Shades of Blue
Seconds slipping away
got a choice to make
we know we just can't wait anymore.

There's not a day that I don't think about leaving this mess, move along, pack our bags and hit the road.

…and find a new place we can call our own.

We will drive along for days on these sun beaten roads.
A nutty sparkle in your eyes will enlighten the red pins on the map.
I thought I knew what I was looking for…or is there something that I'm still missing?

On the highway 101
we began breathing in a life I hadn't felt since I was seventeen years old.

So we'll roll the windows down
and sing along to HP songs
We won't even get to sleep
and through all these shades of blue

we'll find our getaway.

You know I cannot stand another rainy day
I'm tired and the lump in my throat won't even go away.
Too many sleepless nights
I put away my parka and put on a jacket.
If it turns cold, that’s not my problem, I refuse to accept winter anymore.
