Track Name: Carry Me Up the Stairs
Carry me up the stairs
I can't make it home
Drive my car for me
While I sit in the passenger seat

Because our nights spent drinking always end with me feeling a little lost
I feel like I'm drifting apart from my self
Maybe it's making it worse, but I can't tell

We're sitting across the lawn
I'm feeling pretty low
There's a fire burning at my feet
I just need to go

Because our nights spent smoking always end with me feeling a little lost
I feel like I'm drifting apart from myself
Maybe it's making it worse but I can't tell

Because our nights spent drinking always end with me feeling a little lost
I feel like I'm drifting apart from myself
Maybe it's making it worse but I can't tell
Track Name: Time Zones
I could see the red in your eyes
I felt the stinging in mine
But I've never been good with
Saying goodbye

A new time zone
Adjusts all you've known
Tell me that you didn't know
How to feel at home

The shoreline calls for you
Just like you wanted me to
Now it's a red carpet life that
Keeps you high

I trusted in myself,
I knew that it wouldn't work out
But it seems you're doing okay

I get too attached to things that have no roots
A feather blowing in the wind, nothing to be tied down to

A new time zone
Adjusts all you've known
Tell me that you didn't know
How to feel at home

The shoreline calls for you
Just like you wanted me to
Now it's a red carpet life that
Keeps you high

But I didn't know
How to react when you cried at that show
A side you wouldn't let anybody know,
Except for me

Because it was nights spent drinking in my car
When we talked about days that seemed so far away
Your childhood, your family
And how everything here had pushed you to leave,
Including me

A new time zone
Adjusts all you've known
Tell me that you didn't know
How to feel at home

The shoreline calls for you
Just like you wanted me to
Now it's a red carpet life that
Keeps you high
Track Name: Trying to Find
Maybe I'm just trying to find
My way back into the open
Or a way out of my mind
Or a way to feel whole again

Maybe I'm just trying to find
A way to be somebody else
Or a way to ask for help
When i don't want to be myself

Because I lose it when I'm alone
These four walls don't feel like home
The skies keep turning darker shades of gray
My mouth keeps screaming that I'm okay
But I'm not

I feel myself falling away
I tried to stay close, but every day's a dream in the life of someone else
Everybody looks better compared to myself

Maybe I'm just trying to find a cure for this disease in me when I want to leave

Because I lose it when I'm all alone
These four walls don't feel like home
The skies keep turning darker shades of gray
My mouth keeps screaming that I'm okay
But I'm not

I'm holding my breath while swimming under water
I'm hoping for the best as I'm sinking further under

Because I lose it when I'm alone
These four walls don't feel like home
The skies keep turning darker shades of gray
My mouth keeps screaming that I'm okay
Track Name: 23
I can't believe you were dead at 23
Your brother's gone, you were only 21

I feel responsible
Like I could have done something if I had known

You say that it's okay for me to feel this way

We sat in your room,
I called you off work
I wish I could have saved you
From all of the hurt

It was an accident that we never recovered from
