Track Name: Light Years Away
I'm standing here alone
Cold hands, tired bones
And I've walked these city streets
Since I could barely speak

Everybody here knows my name
And they say I'll never change
But I'm not one for regret
And my life's not over yet

I lost track of time
I'm light years away from where I want to be
And all that I've got
Is one beating heart but that's enough for me
I'm not begging for help
I just wish you could hear the words I want to say
But you don't know who I am
All you see is a man and his mistakes

I'm standing in a crowd
Watching you take a bow
And it's a little hard to breathe
'Cause I know it could have been me

Everybody here knows my name
But they say it's such a shame
That I tried to run but fell
And blamed everyone but myself

I lost track of time
I'm light years away from where I want to be
And all that I've got
Is one beating heart but that's enough for me
I'm not begging for help
I just wish you could hear the words I want to say
But you don't know who I am
All you see is a man and his mistakes

I made a promise I can't keep
I climbed so high and fell so deep
You tried to warn me of this place
But it was too late, I disappeared without a trace

I lost track of time
I'm light years away from where I want to be
And all that I've got
Is one beating heart but that's all I need
I'm not begging for help
I just wish you could hear the words I want to say
But you don't know who I am
All you see is a man and his mistakes
Track Name: Endless Nights
I feel hollow, I feel weak
And I've forgotten how to lie through my teeth
I breathe heavy, I breathe deep
But it doesn't stop my heart from racing
And it doesn't help me get to sleep

I'm not unbreakable and never was
But I'm digging deep and I'm pulling through
I spent so many endless nights
Talking to myself when I could have been talking with you

I'm a monster, so you say
But you don't know me, you only see who I portray
I'm still searching for a place to hide
But I can't seem to stop competing
Even though I've been disqualified

I'm not unbreakable and never was
But I'm digging deep and I'm pulling through
I spent so many endless nights
Talking to myself when I could have been talking with you

I'm not unbreakable and never was
But my redemption is overdue
I spent so many endless nights
Talking to myself when I could have been talking with
