Track Name: Talk This Way
I've been thinking about those things
Things you said to me when we were young
You played it cool, I played it dumb
If it meant making things more fun
We were taking life so much better

Just so you know

I hate it when you talk this way
Call me a fool for thinking things would stay the same
Just tell the truth, give me some honesty
Cause if you leave I know I'll never love again

Just give me the time of day
Or at least enough to tell you how I'm feeling
I wanna say what I need to say
I'll make it work if you believe in me
Believe in me

Dream, dream, dream
It's like we're stuck in that same old scene
That just ain't coming
But I believe, do you believe in me?
Track Name: Miles Ahead
'm over my head
And I think I said something
Under my breath
But I swear it meant nothing
I'd rather be dead
Than let go of this passion
Forget what I said
Cause its coming up fast

And for now we'll be
The ones on the back seat
We'll never give up
Cause now we know it's not easy
To get what we love
And go all the way to the coast
And give up everything
To sing the songs that we wrote

Now I'm gone
And I'm not stopping 'til they're
Singing our songs
I hope that they understand

North Carolina you know that I wanna
And I'll be coming after you but I've gotta hit
South California before I get to go but
I can't wait to show you just the way we move

So don't pretend that you can help me
Think about it
All this talk is unhealthy
It's making me sick
But I know that you're not worth it
Your time is gone
But the clocks still running

I'm not coming back for you

I'm gone, gone with the beat
I feel it take control of me as my
Heart syncs to 1, 2, 3, 4
I get the feeling that I just might be gone
And I'm not stopping 'til there singing our songs
Track Name: Melodies
No need to tell me what you're thinking
I see it in your eyes you're barely breathing
Can't believe I'm seeing what I'm seeing
Let's take this time alone
To find out what we're feeling

I've got a heart full of gold
Now it's sinking
And I'm trying to hold it
'Cause I'm thinking
I'm not ready for this
Tell me you're ready for this?

I've got a melody
That makes my bones shake
You are my melody
I'll sing it 'til by bones break

Let's take this slow
I've got my reasons
I know you know
'Cause we've been seeing
We're getting closer by the seasons
We'll take this time alone
To find out what we're singing

So hide the evidence
Bury our promises
Recount our common sense
Before we make a mess of this

Are you ready for this?
Tell me you're ready for this

Take me away
Why does it feel so good, so right
(I won't lie)
How can we say
That we're keeping it hush tonight
Then why does hush sound like...

Is that what we asked for?
Is that what we asked for?
Cause we got what we asked for
We got it figured out
Track Name: Taking Chances, Placing Bets
Sneaking out my window
Where does the time go?
It’s wearing me out
I’ve got my high hopes
And fool’s gold
I’m ready to bounce

You think you know what’s best for me, You don’t
I can’t make you see, I won’t
I don’t mean to leave
While you’re breaking down

Too late I’m on my way out
You know I’ve got other plans
Than to be everything that you need of me
(This is how it has to be)
Too late I’ve got my mind set
On better things to come
I don’t mean to leave
That part of me
But this is how it has to be

I know we’re gonna be on our own
I dare you to slow us down
You better watch your back
When you run your mouth

I’m taking chances
And I’m placing bets
On the things I love
And the ones we left back home
It slipped my tongue
But I think I meant it all
It all

Is it worth the tragedy?
Is this really what we need?
I never meant to leave
While you’re breaking down

I’m gone and I’m not stopping
‘til they’re singing our songs
I hope that you understand
