Track Name: Nights Away Awake
i want to take my time to remind you
i stayed awake
when you were sleeping
next to me where you
where you dreaming

cause i don't want to be, another friend
outside your boundaries
cause i want to feel, like i should
like i knew i would, if you could

i tried to justify but you think that i
you think i'd lie
well how can i
when it hurts enough
just to say goodbye

cause i don't want to be, another friend
outside your boundaries
cause i want to feel, like i should
like i knew i would, if you could

so here's something, to write about
so here's something, to write about
Track Name: Freshers Week
i can't ignore the fact that i want
to get carried away with you in your room
like we did, after high school
but i will be so gentlemanly and i will leave
in case he makes you happy

i can hear your favourite song
when i think of you
and i try my best to sing along
but i always seem to get the words wrong

and i will leave, in case he makes you happy
and i will leave, in case he makes you happy
Track Name: By Your Ghostly Side
i wish that i
could runaway
from everything
that holds me down

i can't
tell the difference
between being honest
and being upset

(repeat)
Track Name: Smoke Out
i hope i haunt you soon
i hope i become your ghost
i will float through these walls
and i swear that they wont talk
and i will wait all night
before i open my window
and let some smoke out

(repeat)
Track Name: Mouldy Peach
it's the way you talk about uni
it's the way you think about you and me

i tried my best but you did perceive
my adolescence as a flaw in me
but i swear i've changed i saw my shame
and in terms of that person i am not the same

i find it sad to see you walk away
on this foggy little autumn date
down by a picture perfect lake
it's just one kiss you wont be late

it's the way you talk about uni
it's the way you think about you and me
it's the way you think about uni
it's the way you talk about you and me
Track Name: A Noel Naivety
i tried to be the best
but i was just another stain
on your dress you wore so well
did i say you looked like noel
from that song were he describes
what she wears and how she smiles
and how it makes me feel
like i'm the dirt bag now

but i still write you letters
even though you'll never read 'em
because i have never sent them
and i will never

and i will never
say we wont
always be together
i can make this bond forever

but i still write you letters
even though you'll never read 'em
because i have never sent them
and i will never

they will die with me together
this will die with me together
we will die with me together
will you die with me together
Track Name: A Freak and A Geek
i feel like a ghost at my own party
as i'm standing in the hallway and he's all over your body
and i wish i could think of anything other than this
but it's not my fault that i can't

you feel like a ghost at my party
cause i'm floating in and out but still i can't find you
and i wish you could think of anything other than that
but it's not your fault if you can't

i had to be consoled by a friend of your brother
so i was consoled by a friend of your brother

and you came here alone
so what changed

i had to be consoled by a friend of your brother
so i was consoled by a friend of your brother

i feel like a ghost at my own party
as i'm standing in the hallway and he's all over your body
and i wish i could think of anything other than this
but it's not my fault that i can't

you feel like a ghost at my party
cause i'm floating in and out but still i can't find you
and i wish you could think of anything other than him
Track Name: Runner
i wish i could choose
between who i am
and who i've been
cause if it was you
i'd come running
but that's who i am
i'm a runner

but if it was you
who could see through
and still choose
cause if it was me
i'd come running
but that's who i am
i'm a runner
and you're happy where you are
Track Name: Wasting
most, of the time
i am far away
from home
most, of the time
i feel
so far away
but you, you can come home when you want too

and most, of the time
you're wasting
most of our time

most, of the time
i'm thinking
of a way out
but most, of the time
i can never
figure that out
but you, you can come home when you want too

and most, of the time
you're wasting
most of our time
Track Name: Sharks
if i had a ship
i'd sail it out
shoot it full of holes
and let it drown
because the undertow
looks beautiful
when the sun goes down
and the sharks come out
well i know it's bad
that this makes me happy
when i know you're sad
like i know you should be
the water cold
but it's nothing close
to the blood that
your veins are holding

and i hope you think that i'm gonna stay

(repeat)
