Track Name: Begin.
“All’s well that ends well,” said the hangman to the noose
We’ve had a good run of it but now it’s someone’s turn to lose
As long as one of us leaves thinking this was worth their time
We can walk away and leave it be there’s no sentence if there’s no crime

When things begin
We’ve got to believe
This could go somewhere
This could be something
We could have something

Endings are always sad, the movies get it wrong
There’s no clean fix to make things right and no end credits song
But somehow people find the strength to get up and face the day
Hoping the next will be the last and maybe this time that he’ll stay

When things begin
We’ve got to believe
This could go somewhere
This could be something
We could have something

When things begin
We’ve got to believe
This could go somewhere
This could be something
We could have something
Track Name: Me & Other Disasters
I am a robot I feel nothing when you cry
You are upset but logic cannot explain why
And when you need me to be kind and show I care
All you will get is my metallic robot stare

You’re better off alone
You’re better off alone

I am a monster I will kick you when you’re down
And drag your battered body clear across this town
You might expect me to be lovable and sweet
But quickly learn when your heart’s trapped beneath my feet

You’re better off alone
You’re better off alone

I am disaster, I leave nothing in my wake
And I know nothing of this myth of give and take
I will destroy everything you love and hold dear
You’ll ask your god what has he done but one thing’s clear

You’re better off alone
You’re better off alone
You’re better off alone
You’re better off alone
Track Name: goodnightiloveyou
Remember when we used to sit and talk about the past
We'd laugh about when we first met, how we didn't know it then
A single moment in our lives that changed everything
But you, you're moving on.

You said you'd marry me and it wasn't quite a joke
We'd have some pretty babies, live side by side as we grew old
With a twinkle in your eye you promised me everything
But you, you're moving on.

I thought I had forever to show you this is real
I was never brave enough to say these things to you
You're my family, in your eyes I am home, I have everything
But you, you're moving on.

I always wanted you to be happy
But I didn't realize it might not be with me
With a twinkle in your eye you promised me everything
But you, you're moving on.
Track Name: Actual Results May Vary
She says it’s time to tell the truth
It isn’t worth pretending anymore
We’ve both made our own mistakes
We tried it all already
We had such high hopes

I will let you down
I will let you down
I will let you down
It is what it is, I know now
I can’t fix you and you can’t fix me
But we can both be broken
Together

Do you remember? The start, always the start
Those are the best parts
I thought I could get it right
But right never stays right for long

I will let you down
I will let you down
I will let you down
It is what it is, I know now
I can’t fix you and you can’t fix me
But we can both be broken
Together

It is what it is, I know now
I can’t fix you and you can’t fix me
But we can both be broken
Can two halves make a whole?

You were never mine to begin with
But I was always yours, I was always yours
Track Name: Missed Steps and Mistakes
Sing me a song about beginnings
Sing me a song about the start
Before all the missed steps and mistakes
Back when I still had your heart

But now it’s all complicated
Look at the mess we’ve made it
Where did we go wrong?
When all I want is to sing you a song

Write out verses about forgiveness
Chords waiting patiently for days
Pen the chorus and bridge so hopeful
Harmonies that promise to stay

‘Cause now it’s all complicated
Look at the mess we’ve made it
Where did we go wrong?
When all I want is to sing you a song

Sing with me sweetly
Like we used to do
The darkness will fade off
If I can just sing with you

But now it’s all complicated
Look at the mess we’ve made it
Where did we go wrong?
When all I want is to sing you a song
Track Name: The Walkaways
She said I have so many things to say
Would that be ok, just to say?
But my lips cannot find the words so true
When they’d rather be kissing you

I woke up all alone last night
Just my thoughts and I facing flee or fight
That old fear knocking down my door
Says it’s time to go, I’ve been keeping score

And if you have to walk away
Then just walk away, I’ll be ok
And if we don’t make it through this fire
It was worth it just to burn next to you
to burn next to you, to burn next to you

You’re making a mistake he said
We were meant to be, get it through your head
I knew the minute that I first met you
I would find myself in love with you

It’s true the road we took to get us here
Paved with hopes and fears wasn’t very clear
I never meant to hurt you dear
I wish I could wipe away your tears

But if you have to walk away
Then just walk away, I’ll be ok
And if we don’t make it through this fire
It was worth it just to burn next to you
to burn next to you, to burn next to you

We can make it
Can you fake it?
We’ll get there
Just give it time

We can make it
(I don’t know)
Can you fake it?
(I’m not so sure)
We’ll get there
(How do you know?)
Just give it time
(I’m sorry) x2

And if you have to walk away
(I don’t know / I’m not so sure)
Then just walk away, I’ll be ok
(How do you know? / I’m sorry)
And if we don’t make it through this fire
It was worth it just to burn next to you
to burn next to you, to burn next to you
Track Name: The Parking Lot
Rebound, rebound, rebound
Means getting put back together and I
Know you just need some time to figure it all out and when you do
I’ll be waiting here for you

There’s a girl in the parking lot
Trying to dry her eyes
But the tears just won’t stop
She knows timing is everything and
It could all go wrong but
It could also be so right, waiting for the

Rebound, rebound, rebound
Means getting put back together and I
Know you just need some time to figure it all out and when you do
I’ll be waiting here for you

Your heart’s an open book with
Pages ripped right out and the
Cover’s hanging by a thread
But don’t lose hope my dear it’s
Nothing that time can mend with a
Little glue and bandage for your head, and you’ll be

Rebound, rebound, rebound
Means getting put back together and I
Know you just need some time to figure it all out and when you do
I’ll be waiting here for you

Rebound, rebound, rebound
Means getting put back together and I
Know you just need some time to figure it all out and when you do
I’ll be waiting here for you
Track Name: TSM (or Taylor Swift Moment)
This is where I stand up for myself
This is when I hold my ground
I'm not gonna let you hurt me again
You're not gonna bring me down

Whoa oh oh, my heart was in your hands
Whoa oh oh, but you made other plans

Promises broken, things left unsaid
Leave your message at the tone
Hoping for something that'll never come
Wanted to call you my home

Whoa oh oh, my heart was in your hands
Whoa oh oh, but you made other plans

This is where I stand up for myself
This is when I hold my ground
I'm not gonna let you hurt me again
You're not gonna bring me down

I'm sorry for you my little man
You don't know how to make a choice
But I can't wait around for all my life
While you try to find your voice

Whoa oh oh, my heart was in your hands
Whoa oh oh, but you made other plans

Whoa oh oh, my heart was in your hands
Whoa oh oh, but you made other plans

This is where I stand up for myself
This is when I hold my ground
I'm not gonna let you hurt me again
You're not gonna bring me down

This is where I stand up for myself
This is when I hold my ground
I'm not gonna let you hurt me again
You're not gonna bring me down
