Track Name: Kill me one more time
KILL ME ONE MORE TIME

IF I LOSE IT ALL
ALL THESE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS
LIKE A WATERFALL
POURING TROUGH, THE CEILING
THINGS THAT I HAVE LOST
BURIED IN THE PAST

YOU KILLED WHO I WAS THEN
WHEN YOU LEFT ME REELING
SPLIT ME FROM THE SELF
THAT I’D BUILT WITH YOU WHEN
WE WERE SHARING FEARS
OUR LAUGHTER AND OUR TEARS

AND I WON’T REGAIN
WHAT I FELT INSIDE
THERE WAS SO MUCH PAIN
WHEN I LET IT DIE
STILL I WANT YOU TO
KILL ME ONE MORE TIME
TONIGHT

DO YOU REMEMBER
WALKING HOME AT NIGHT WITH NOTHING
PAST THE GHOSTLY CABS
WE DIDN’T HAVE THE CASH TO PAY THEM
NOW THAT I’VE GROWN UP
I MISS WHAT I GAVE UP

I WANTED TO FIND
A STEADIER MIND
BUT ALL STORMS FADE AWAY
AND MADE ME WHAT I’M TODAY

STILL I WANT US TO
BURN FOR ONE MORE TIME
FOR THE OLD AND NEW
KILL ME ONE MORE TIME

TONIGHT
Track Name: Backseat
BACKSEAT

I REMEMBER THE DAYS
WHEN WE HAD NO NEED TO WORRY
IT WAS THE NEW AGE OF GLORY
AND WE WOULD FEEL ALIVE

WE COULD HAVE SPENT THE WHOLE NIGHT
WANDERING ACROSS THE CITY
AND WE WOULD SEE THE LIGHTS

WAS IT JUST GROWING OLDER
WHEN CAME THE PRESSURE
WHEN DID WE LEARN TO FIGHT

WE
THOUGHT THAT WE COULD CHANGE
EVERY HURTFUL THING
WE’D ALWAYS HAVE THAT SPARK

LIFE
STRANGLED UP OUR SPACE
TASTED OUR MISTAKES
INFECTED WHO WE ARE

TAKE ME BY THE HAND
DON’T BELIEVE IN FATE
DON’T BELIEVE IN FATE

MY HEART BURNS AND BREAKS
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL

WHEN I WAS ONLY A KID,
I USED TO RIDE IN THE BACKSEAT
WATCHING MY HOUSE THROUGH THE BACKSTREETS
BUT NOW I HAVE TO DRIVE

UNDER THE WHEEL, I’VE GOT CHOICES
ALL OF THE LIGHTS, ALL THE VOICES
I GUESS THAT’S BEING ALIVE


WE
THOUGHT THAT WE COULD CHANGE
EVERY HURTFUL THING
WE’D ALWAYS HAVE THAT SPARK

LIFE
STRANGLED UP OUR SPACE
TASTED UP OUR MISTAKES
INFECTED WHO WE ARE

CHORUS:
TAKE ME BY THE HAND
DON’T BELIEVE IN FATE
DON’T BELIEVE IN FATE

MY HEART BURNS AND BREAKS
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL

TIME
ALWAYS REMAINS
AND AFTER IT ALL
WE’RE STILL THE SAME

WATCHED BY THOSE LIGHTS
WATCHED BY THOSE LIGHTS

I’M NOT A KID ANYMORE
AND SOMETIMES I MISS THE BACKSEAT
BUT THE WORLD’S MORE THAN ONE STREET
NOW, LET’S GO FOR A RIDE

MY HEART BURNS AND BREAKS
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL

MY HEART BURNS AND BREAKS
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL
FOR THAT GOLDEN TRAIL
Track Name: Starlight
STARLIGHT

IF YOU WANT ME TO STOP
THE BLEEDING
CATCHING ALL OF YOUR TEARDROPS
FALLING
IF YOU'RE READY TO TAKE
THE NEXT STEP
DROPPING ALL OF YOUR MISTAKES
IN THE HANDS OF GOD

YOU CAN PULL THE WEIGHT OF YOUR SORROW
KILL THE PAIN GROWING INTO THE RAGE
THE HARDEST PART IS COMING TOMORROW
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CARRY THAT WEIGHT

LET'S GET LOST IN THE STARLIGHT
YOU'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE WRONG FIGHT
TOO LONG
LET'S GET LOST IN THE STARLIGHT
YOU'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE WRONG FIGHT
TOO LONG

WHEN YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR
COLLIDES TO
ISOLATION AND FAILURE
THAT BREAKS YOU
YOU CAN PICTURE YOURSELF
IN OUTER SPACE
FLOATING FAR FROM ANY KIND OF
DISGRACE

YOU CAN PULL THE WEIGHT OF YOUR SORROW
KILL THE PAIN GROWING INTO RAGE
THE HARDEST PART IS COMING TOMORROW
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CARRY THAT WEIGHT


LET'S GET LOST IN THE STARLIGHT
YOU'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE WRONG FIGHT
TOO LONG
LET'S GET LOST IN THE STARLIGHT
YOU'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE WRONG FIGHT
TOO LONG
Track Name: Confetti
CONFETTI


THE PARTY’S OVER
IT’S TIME TO HEAD BACK
BUT I STAY OVER
AND FOLLOW YOUR TRACKS
‘CAUSE MY PAIN IS REAL
IT’S HARD TO EXPLAIN
MY FEELINGS WILL HEAL
BUT MY HEART BREAKS

INTO CONFETTI

WE TAKE POTIONS
TO SOFTEN SADNESS
WE STAY IN MOTION
TO HIDE OUR WEAKNESS
WE’RE TRACING OUTLINES
THE COLOUR OF SKIN
WE START TO FEEL FINE
WHEN OUR HEAD EXPLODES

INTO CONFETTI


THE PARTY’S OVER
THE DISHES ARE CLEAN
I’LL BE HUNG OVER
WHEN DAWN MAKES A SEAM
BETWEEN THE REGRETS
AND INDECISION
MY NEEDS ARE PRE-SET
BUT MY WORLD BREAKS

INTO CONFETTI
