She counts the stars reflected in her eyes Runs around playing pretend She wants to be a doctor and a princess Gold chain hangs around her neck Hold mama's cross and papa's wings Reminds her they’re with her through all things Through all things Cuz I’ve been thinking how crazy it is That the days move slow but the years move fast Cuz just yesterday I was a wide eyed kid Now I’m waking up 26 Wish I could go back Tell my younger self Not to spend so much time Worrying about everyone else Worrying about the reflection in the mirror Or making decisions out of fear Out of fear Cuz I’ve been thinking how crazy it is That the days move slow but the years move fast Cuz just yesterday I was a wide eyed kid Now I’m waking up 26 Time's a funny thing And it played me for a fool Made me think I had it all. Cuz here I sit all these years later All on my own Reliving all my memories through polaroids Wishing I had seen them through these eyes Before they were gone Cuz I’ve been thinking how crazy it is That the days move slow but the years move fast Wish I could make them last And I’ve been thinking how crazy it is That the days move slow but the years move fast Cuz just yesterday I was a wide eyed kid Now I’m waking up 26 (I'm waking up) 26 (I'm waking up)

Then, Now 03:08
Summer of '09 I had the time of my life you’re not looking for the one And I’m trying to move on I tell you I can’t drive You pick me up at nine And o-oh We’re going nowhere fast And o-oh We weren't built to last And it’s hard to be somebody’s future When they’re meant for your past. Mmmm Singing loud, windows down If only we knew then what we know now. So we spend our days Rewriting all our mistakes Watching boundaries melt away And lines of friendship fade Oh we’re both on the mend But here we are again and O-oh We’re going nowhere fast And o-oh Thought we were built to last And it’s hard to be somebody’s future When they’re meant for your past. Mmmm Singing loud, windows down If only we knew then what we know now. It was glorious A work of art In the blink of an eye And Looking back on it What a beautiful mistake Ooh We’re going nowhere fast and o-oh Thought we were built to last But it’s hard to be somebody’s future When they’re meant for your past. Mmmm Singing loud, windows down Singing loud, windows down Singing loud, windows down If only we knew then what we know now.

We threw caution to the wind Jumped heart first down the rabbit hole The rabbit hole But when we hit the ground Everything turned upside down Fighting for attention Reciprocal discretion Watched both of us disappear It’s been a year And I can’t believe you’re here standing at my door, oh But you don’t pull me close like you used to And I don’t smile like I did before And suddenly it’s clear You don’t belong here anymore You don’t belong here anymore. But I say stay awhile Through gritted teeth and forced smiles Cuz you’ve been gone for so long But suddenly it’s obvious That you searched the world but lost your soul Forever chasing the unknown And it’s been a year And I can’t believe you’re here Standing at my door, oh But you don’t pull me close like you used to And I don’t smile like I did before And suddenly it’s clear You don’t belong here anymore You don’t belong here anymore Well I have to ask it Cuz I still wonder time to time Do you regret the day you stopped choosing to be mine And does she make you happy And does she understands the truth That what you did to me, you could do to her, too It’s been a year And I can’t believe you’re here Oh does she know you’re here? Well it’s been a year and I can’t believe you’re here standing at my door (you’re standing at my, you’re standing at my door) But you don’t pull me close like you used to And I don’t smile like I did before It’s clear that you don’t belong here anymore. You don’t belong here You don’t belong here You don’t belong here You don't belong here anymore You don’t belong here You don’t belong here You don’t belong here You don’t belong here anymore

Well I'm not gonna lie Baby you’re on my mind Never seen such bad decision Have such pretty eyes and You got the girls all around you But I'm all you see Brown eyes meeting blue Oh baby boy I could destroy you Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh I'm a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh I'm a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh I'm a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh I'm a natural disaster I count the hours in coffee cups I feel myself but not too much And storm clouds are rollin in I start to confess my sins You say that when it comes to love I make no promises But my eyes keep you up at night How can you put up a fight Against a natural disaster? And you can’t say you weren’t warned You knew when I walked through the door That when it rains it pours And that I'd never be yours Cuz I’m a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Yeah I'm a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Yeah I'm a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Yeah I'm a natural disaster Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

RUN 03:41
Once upon a time Never got it right Mirror on the wall Can’t be fair, gotta have it all And so you want to manipulate me Well I got my armor ready And talk is cheap Time to change the ending of this story Cuz I don’t want to be I don’t want to be one of them I don’t want to be I don’t want to be one of them I don’t want to be I don’t want to be one of them One of you... So Run Run Away from the darkness You weren’t meant for this Run run The silence is deafening How can this be happening? Run run It doesn’t make sense But this I can promise You’re better off alone So Run Broken promises Brilliant disguises Only built me up To watch me fall But I can play with the best of them So you better be serious With this big game that you’re talking Cuz I don’t want to be I don’t want to be one of them I don’t want to be I don’t want to be one of them I don’t want to be I don’t want to be one of them One of you... So Run. Run Away from the darkness You weren’t meant for this Run run The silence is deafening How can this be happening? Run run It doesn’t make sense But this I can promise You’re better off alone So Run Constantly fighting No problem denying Fit yourself into the mold Don’t let them know you’re lying I feel like I’m drifting Not living just existing And I don’t wanna be I don’t wanna be one of them… So Run. Run Away from the darkness You weren’t meant for this Run run The silence is deafening How can this be happening? Run run It doesn’t make sense But this I can promise You’re better off alone So Run Run Run You better run Run Run

After Dark 03:09
Hey um it’s me. Listen I know it’s been awhile but this song came on And it made me think of you and Ok look I know this is weird just…just call me ok? It’s hard to fight your ghost when the daylight fades Rose colored glasses forget the pain And you’re name, a scar In the shape of an arrow on my heart Pulling me backwards Comes out of no where And I fall back in love with you after dark When the air is still and your memory Crawls back to my heart This isn’t real Yeah I’m just lonely And in the morning light it’ll be just me But I fall in love with you Yeah I fall in love with you After dark It doesn’t take long after the sun goes down Cracks in the ceiling Take me back to the beginning now When we carved our names into each others hearts And it broke me when we fell a part All we have left of each other are these battle scars But I fall back in love with you after dark When the air is still and your memory Crawls back to my heart This isn’t real No I’m just lonely And in the morning light It’ll be just me But I fall in love with you Yeah I fall in love with you After dark And I fall in love with you after dark. I fall in love with you I fall in love with you after dark look I know this is weird just…just call me ok? To delete this message press 1 Message deleted

Look Around 03:14
Built a kingdom out of courage and smoke and foundations of false hope But when I crumbled I was at it's highest point And so I threw away the crown Started running when I hit the ground And swore to never look back Cuz we all know Life’s short, can’t wait for anyone We all know Stay strong, you don’t need anyone But look around We grow up to settle down Just searching for, praying for, looking for holy ground Empty words strung together with sympathy Fall at my feet It’ll be fine, it’ll happen in time And all this talk about love But when push comes to shove We fall, we fall right back in line In line Cuz we all know Life’s short, can’t wait for anyone We all know Stay strong, you don’t need anyone But look around We grow up to settle down Just searching for, praying for, looking for holy ground In love and young and reckless Hanging by a promise and a golden chain Suppressed by the weight of a pain I swore was keeping me sane And when I waded through the tears One thing remained the same When I waded through my tears and all of my fears One thing remained the same The same And it was We all know Life’s short, can’t wait for anyone We all know Stay strong, you don’t need anyone But look around We grow up to settle down Just searching for, praying for, looking for holy ground Just searching for, praying for, looking for holy ground Just searching for, praying for, looking for holy ground

Wildflowers 03:42
Let me down slow Watch me disappear Ah, ah, ah Dance around the room Let me see the real you and We’re too young to understand but All I know is I feel at home when you Hold my hand, hand, hand I can be the reason you come home when you’re running out of town I can be the falling rain after thunder shakes the ground And I don’t belong here You don’t belong anywhere Wildflowers in my hair, hair Oh take me there Kiss me on the porch Call me after dark Wishing you were here Haven’t said the words But we both know how we feel Nobody in this town has Ever really figured you out but That all changed the day that I came around I can be the reason you come home when you’re running out of town I can be the falling rain after thunder shakes the ground And I don’t belong here You don’t belong anywhere Wildflowers in my hair, hair Oh take me there Just a little out of reach and Just a little out of our league and We were each other’s best kept dream But couldn’t get the timing right Watched it fall a part on New Years Night I was saying I can be the reason you come home I can be the reason you come home I can be the reason I can be the reason… Come home I can be the reason you come home when you’re running out of town I can be the falling rain after thunder shakes the ground And I don’t belong here You don’t belong anywhere Wild flowers in my hair, hair Oh take me there
