Track Name: Harm's Way
I can't help but feel a little down sometimes
It's the demons I faced still burning deep inside
When I'm with you, you take away all the pain
Don't need to feel like my eyes are blinded by gains of sand

I was knee high now I'm neck deep
These mountains I climb are far too steep
It all came so suddenly
Please don't ever leave me
I find it hard to believe what you think of me
At least I know I'll hold you for today
Tomorrow I'll be stuck in harm's way

I hope you can cope to be with me and all my problems
I can help you through with yours too
Fuck those assholes worth absolutely nothing
They're stupid, pathetic, a complete waste of your worthwhile time

I was knee high now I'm neck deep
These mountains I climb are far too steep
It all came so suddenly
Please don't ever leave me
I find it hard to believe what you think of me
At least I know I'll hold you for today
Tomorrow I'll be stuck in harm's way

It's better to feel pain than nothing at all
At least I know I'm alive, avoiding death and its hallow call

Stuck in harm's way

I was knee high now I'm neck deep
These mountains I climb are far too steep
It all came so suddenly
Please don't ever leave me
I find it hard to believe what you think of me
At least I know I'll hold you for today
Tomorrow I'll be stuck in harm's way

I'll be stuck in harm's way
Track Name: Baby This Isn't A Game
I've said this before and I'll say it again
This is the last time you'll try this my friend
We've not been us for a long time now
I lost interest in making this last

You said to me all those years ago
That I should always let you know
That I love you, I need you
I will always be around

So next time you think you can win my heart this way
You're making a mistake you know this is not a game
The last time you tried this you almost lost it, you fucked it up again
We're better off this way, or are we making a mistake?

One more time till it starts to sink in
I can't wait for life without you to begin
I always thought that this would last
Our time has gone too fast

So next time you think you can win my heart this way
You're making a mistake you know this is not a game
The last time you tried this you almost lost it, you fucked it up again
We're better off this way, or are we making a mistake?

So this time please try to win back my heart again
Keep it for the rest of our days, baby this is not a game
Track Name: Hold On To This
Sometimes I get scared not knowing what you think
Sometimes I open my eyes and get too sacred to blink
But then I remember that this is what I want to do
I've won you over now, we won't let this break down because of you

GO!

This is the road I have chosen to take
Each step I make tells me that this isn't a mistake
And you may think that this is all wrong
We just keep walking and slowly moving on

I thought we had it all planned out
But it's so much harder than we thought it could be
Are you scared where this is gonna go?
Where's this gonna go?

My whole life I've been waiting for the start
Now it's finally starting to happen
Mum I hope you're proud of me
Let's hope this turns out to what it should be

This is the road I have chosen to take
Each step I make tells me that this isn't a mistake
And you may think that this is all wrong
We just keep walking and slowly moving on

Look at the stars in the night sky
They're shining for us so bright
I dunno why but I've got this feeling
We'll be alright

This is the road I have chosen to take
Each step I make tells me that this isn't a mistake
And you may think that this is all wrong
We just keep walking and slowly moving on

I'm forever holding on to this dream
We're moving forwards slowly
We're not quite there yet
We'll get there eventually
Track Name: Rollercoaster Girl
Fear crawls through me
What's happening to me?
My parents don't approve
Maybe I should just move

When I'm with her it's like
I'm on the fastest ride
She makes me feel inside
This girl is my ride
My head's starting to swirl
She's my rollercoaster girl
I hope I don't hurl
She's my rollercoaster girl

Going up and over
We're either drunk or sober
I know this is crazy
But I'm staying cus she laid me

When I'm with her it's like
I'm on the fastest ride
She makes me feel inside
This girl is my ride
My head's starting to swirl
She's my rollercoaster girl
I hope I don't hurl
She's my rollercoaster girl

You're my rollercoaster girl

When I'm with her it's like
I'm on the fastest ride
She makes me feel inside
This girl is my ride
My head's starting to swirl
She's my rollercoaster girl
I hope I don't hurl
She's my rollercoaster girl
Track Name: What's Best For You
I remember when we first met like it was yesterday
I saw you, you smiled, it gave me butterflies
My first words to you were so hard for me to say
My stomach was tied up in knots, my brain couldn't think of what words to say

I always had the time of my life when I was with you
I'll sit here tonight, fall asleep, dream of you

But our movie is coming to an end
I see the horizon bring a sunset

I'm thankful for all the days and nights we spent together
I always thought we would last forever

At least you're happy even if you're with someone else
I hate that it's killing me deep inside, excuse my water eyes
It's nice to see you smiling once again

These unframed pictures of you hanging on my bedroom wall
Make me realise that for so long I had it all
I guess it's time to accept it and move on
I'll never love someone as much as I loved you

Now our movie has come to an end
I still hope we can be friends

I'm thankful for all the days and nights we spent together
I always thought we would last forever

At least you're happy even if you're with someone else
I hate that it's killing me deep inside, excuse my water eyes
It's nice to see you smiling once again

You fool you should have turned back and kissed her
I guess I'll rely on help from my brothers and sister
All the while your smile will be cus of his new face
Want you to be happy but I can't help but feel hate
It's nothing personal I just wish it was me in his shoes
Shooting stars won't change a thing for me and you

I want what's best for you
