Track Name: The Things You Do
I thought I would change the world
Rewrite the wrongs of my people
Maybe I could start with you
But now I know, you’re not mine to change

And I hope you find a way
To make it through the day
And I hope you find some pain
To get me through the things you do

You can't start a fire and expect it not to burn
You can’t run away for my forgiveness in return
You can’t tell me you love me but tell her you want her
Do you want her

I somehow didn’t see this coming
My dreams warned me it was true
You kissed my head and told me I was silly
But now I’m silly for trusting you

And I hope you find a way
To make it through the day
And I hope you find some pain
To get me through the things you do

You can't start a fire and expect it not to burn
You can’t run away for my forgiveness in return
You can’t tell me you love me but tell her you want her
Do you want her

Never fell this hard before lost myself in a tug of war
Gave you everything what else more could you ask for
You said that you could just be friends
You told me it wouldn’t happen again
But now I guess this is the end

You can't start a fire and expect it not to burn
You can’t run away for my forgiveness in return
You can’t tell me you love me but tell her you want her
Do you want her, Do you want her
Track Name: Fight On
Just breathe in and let the moment pass you bye
It’s time to face the world again although you’d wish you’d die
I know there are times when you wish you weren’t here
But I do, I do
Every day’s a battle with the world and with yourself
Feeling all alone but never reaching out for help
I’m tired of feeling this way all the time
And you are too, you are too

So anytime you feel like you’re falling
You just have to fight back the calling
And I know it’s easier said than done
But we’ll make it through, we always do

So go on
You’ll go on
So go on
You’ll go on

Scared of never making it, so what’s the point in trying
Lock yourself inside your room and hide the fact your crying
Its times like these you’ve gotta force yourself to fight
And I will too just like you
Why are we so afraid to ask someone for help
We’re all human so it means we’ve all dealt
With heartbreak and emptiness, we feel every day
And they have too just like you

So anytime you feel like you’re falling
You just gotta fight back the calling
And let us know because we care
And we’ll get you through, cause we love you

So go on
You’ll go on
So go on
You’ll go on

I know it feels like there’s no light at the end
But if we go together I’ll make sure to hold your hand
Oh, and before you even know it
You’re back where you belong
Back with me happily

So fight on
You’ll fight on
So fight on
You’ll fight on
Track Name: Manipulated
Here we go, round and round again
Fight so much, it’s hard to pretend that we’re happy
Look at us, we’re happy
You never listened you never did
Confused my thoughts to get your way again
Too many times did I cry

Still you kiss me and kiss me again
Tell me I’m all that you have in the end
You’re so pathetic, I guess I’m pathetic
I give you a second, a third times a try
After it all, I ask myself why do I care
You don’t really care

I changed myself to be with you
Too afraid of what you may do
Isolated, manipulated
Fear in itself is just a game until you get your way
Isolated, Manipulated
Oh

Here we go fist to fist again
I never lied why do we pretend that we’re happy, can we ever be happy
Your jealousy you never hide, you always pent it up inside
Until you snapped

So you push me and hit me and say
It’s all that I ever deserved anyway
Why do I stay, why do I say
I know I deserve much better than this
But how do I let you go after all of this time
After all this time

I’m so afraid to be with you
Too afraid of what you may do
Isolated, manipulated
Fear in itself is just a game until you get your way
Isolated, manipulated
Oh

It wasn’t the physical pain that drove me insane
It always ended with me to blame
And regardless of my innocence
You called me the liar
How could I ever love someone like you
Oh

After all that you put me through
I think I’m finally through with being
Isolated, manipulated
You have no more control over me
I can finally be who I wanna be without feeling
Isolated, manipulated
Track Name: Serene
Hush hush, your fears are louder when you’re alone
Lost between your peace and reality
Why is it so hard to breathe
Are we really here
Or am I just dreaming again

I don’t know what it’s like to find that peace
But in the grand scheme of things I found some release

So hello, hello
Where do you go when you’ve lost yourself and can’t find home
I know, I know what it’s like to have to hide
And if you need me, you can find me in my dreams
Only there will I be
Serene

How do I feel about the world today
I’m sad
We lose the battles but win the war
Loved ones are lost

I don’t wanna see people dying in the streets
Every day is just a battle for some peace

So hello, hello
Where do you go when the world’s messed up
And you’ve lost hope
I know, I know what it’s like to have to hide
And if you need me you can find me in my dreams
Only there will I be
Serene

Hello, hello
And if you need me you can find me
You can find me in my dreams
Only there will be I be
Serene
Track Name: Like I Did
I don’t know anymore
My mind and soul
They fight the war
Lost my faith in myself and everything else
Yet I’m so afraid to lose it all

I guess I’d rather try than die not knowing
I guess I’d rather fight than give up hoping
That maybe you would find the courage to grow with me
All I want is you, nothing but you
This won’t work unless you want me too
Fight for me dear, that’s all I ask of you

So go ahead and reel me in again
Love me good, make me feel something
Promise me you’ll never let me go
Go ahead and break my heart again
If she flirts she’s more than just a friend
Fool me twice, I guess this one’s on me
But don’t you ever expect anyone to love you
Like me

I don’t know anymore
I ask myself what is this for
I wanna say that you’re worth all the pain
But I don’t know tomorrow
I just know today

I guess I’d rather try than die not knowing
I guess I’d rather fight than give up hoping
That maybe you and I could make it someway somehow
But maybe it is best to give up hoping
Suffer through the pain of losing you knowing
There’s still so much of me that loves so much of you

So I’ll go ahead and break your heart this time
In the end at least it wasn’t mine
Though this hurts me more than I can bear
I promise you you’ll find somebody new
And I know I’ll find somebody who
Will love me for exactly who I am
But don’t you ever expect anyone to love you
Like me

You lied, I thought you were my friend
A thief who stole my innocence
I fought and lost
Your heart was not the broken one
I tried to fight the fears that I had to hide
But in the end
I let myself be free

So I’ll go ahead and love myself this time
Cut you off get you out of my mind
The pain is dulled and I can finally breathe
I’ll work on me and find somebody new
Cause I know I’ll find somebody who
Will love me for exactly who I am
But don’t you ever expect anyone to love you
Like I Did
