Track Name: Headlines
too young to care but too old for regrets
we found romance at the bottom of a shot glass
and I will hate you more than I ever thought I could hate
cause you don't understand what this meant

we're restless in the good sense
we're killing ourselves
and it totally makes sense
I had a summer and I was content
but this time of year sends me around the bend

I never thought I'd be like this
restless nights and daytime sleeps
and not getting anything done
except for bringing you down
it's too late to sit down beside me
how many times can you be sorry
I've got no time left to waste
empty bottles and useless days

those nights wrote the headlines
of my fast fading youth
in the morning I can't get up
when I can't be with you
I only fuck up
I only fuck up
when I can't be with you

I'm running round in circles
like I'm lost without a purpose
and I might not have a friend in you
I know you feel the same way too

but I never thought I'd be like this
restless nights and daytime sleeps
and not getting anything done
except for bringing you down
it's too late to sit down beside me
how many times can you be sorry
I've got no time left to waste
empty bottles and useless days

those nights wrote the headlines
of my fast fading youth
in the morning I can't get up
when I can't be with you

I never thought I'd be like this
restless nights and daytime sleeps
and not getting anything done
Track Name: Losing Years (feat. Dominik Mc Neder)
I've had another setback
thought it was a safe bet
I'll never know how to keep this from myself
of the mistakes you warned me not to make
I chose the worst and watched it all break apart

like the kids full of dreams
that grew up just to sin
to regret and to forget everything

I always thought I could be anything I want
but I was wrong

summer's not what it used to be
and I think that I can say the same thing, the same thing about me
sometimes I see
the sunrise like I did
when I was still a kid

and every single night
I used to lay awake
my plans they always kept me up
now I've got no reason to burn
I just sleep like I've given up on everything
and I only learned not to feel a need for anything again

summer's not what it used to be
and I think that I can say the same thing, the same thing about me
sometimes I see the sunrise like I did
when I was still a kid

I just sleep like I've given up on everything
and there is nothing.

I just sleep like I've given up on everything
and there is nothing, nothing keeping me up
I just sleep like I've given up on everything
and there is nothing, nothing keeping me up

sometimes I see
the sunrise like I did
when I was still a kid

when I was still a kid
sometimes I see
the sunrise like I did
Track Name: Cracks
writing this down is another thing I suck at
I know you always feel misstated
stop beating yourself up over this
bad luck comes from giving up
you let life go it's way
and that's the reason you're stuck

don't make a promise if you can't keep it
don't lead me on if you're longing for an end

you say these words like you've understood
what they mean
but you don't even begin to know
how it feels in between
you get by, I know you'll always be alright
if that's the life you wanna lead
you know you can't keep me

What has become of this house
let's scream until it falls apart
this is no good place to heal my wounds
there are little cracks, appearing all over my skin
something inside I hate so much
It's trying to break me from within

this is the worst I've ever been

you say these words like you've understood
what they mean
but you don't even begin to know
how it feels in between
you get by, I know you'll always be alright
if that's the life you wanna lead
then you can't keep me

don't make a promise if you can't keep it
don't lead me on if you're longing for an end
Track Name: With All I Have
landscapes change and pass me by
I close my eyes
and try to sleep the distance away

and ever since you're gone again
I sit around alone and I'm a mess
I haven't slept right since you left
I think of you with all I have

but it's not hopeless as it seems
this is the best thing yet for me

wait for the right time look for the good side
you give me more than anyone else
and the two of us, we're strong enough
to do this again and again
this is the right time
what's mine is yours and what's yours is mine
yours is mine

remember when we met
I was tired I was nervous
and I never thought I'd get
a new reason or a purpose

and whenever you are gone again
I sit around alone and I'm a mess
you never sleep right when I leave
I know you always think of me

wait for the right time look for the good side
you give me more than anyone else
and the two of us, we're strong enough
to do this again and again
this is the right time
what's mine is yours and what's yours is mine
yours is mine

whenever you are by my side
life's more than just an old routine
when you are by my side
you make me who I want to be
