Here To Stay 02:56
The Kings of The New Age The wrong time the right place New blood in London Friends were fallin’ Let’s be honest We talked shit and meant it When no one expected Knew from the moment Wouldn’t be the same Right then we were right there The bright lights in the night air We got there through the nightmare On our own, it’s safe to say we’re here to stay Yeah, everything was fine then When we were walking blinded Built up to burn out for the turnout, ‘cause No one ever told me it would be like that Just another pebble in the hourglass Pause the time, for piece of mind And hope this wouldn’t stay the same Right then we were right there The bright lights in the night air Got there through the nightmare On our own it’s safe to say we’re here to stay Right then we were right there Nowhere on an old prayer Got there through the nightmare On our own it’s safe to say we’re here to stay And it’s so comforting When it leaves you wondering Will you keep me company? ‘Cause no matter how far it goes The world will know That we’ll keep singing like always Right then we were right there The bright lights in the night air Got there through the nightmare On our own it’s safe to say we’re here to stay Right then we were right there Nowhere on an old prayer Got there through the nightmare On our own it’s safe to say we’re here to stay

Eventually 03:37
I wanted to leave But it’s difficult with hands around my neck It’s harder to sleep When you always keep me up inside my head I want to believe That everything will work out for the best But honestly Wishful thinking, what the fuck did I expect? Well the nights grow longer as the days roll by But I can’t keep hiding me behind these eyes Started running from what made me paranoid Eventually, it caught up to me Maybe I’m the one I can’t seem to avoid Suddenly I’m taking back the one thing that felt permanent And all those things I never said A call to arms that I resent Eventually it caught up to me I’m starting to see No, I haven’t come to terms with myself yet I’m grinding my teeth While I’m dealing with the fear that I protect Well the nights grow longer as the days roll by Been hanging by a moment now, I think that it’s time Started running from what made me paranoid Eventually, it caught up to me Maybe I’m the one I can’t seem to avoid Suddenly I’m taking back the one thing that felt permanent And all those things I never said A call to arms that I resent Eventually it caught up to me I can’t imitate at any cost But I can ride it ’til the wheels fall off Wanna breakaway from me, let’s get lost So lost

Enough is enough What the fuck was I thinking ‘Cause being with you is like Working on the weekend So turn the music up louder Tell everybody come through ‘Cause I’m having a party Inviting everybody but you Keep trying but nothing’s good enough I guess we’re out of touch Well you’re one sided Yeah, that’s good to know Wish I knew three years ago Break my back When you asked I’m still last in line Screaming match Every night Every night Enough is enough What the fuck was I thinking ‘Cause being with you is like Working on the weekend So turn the music up louder Tell everybody come through ‘Cause I’m having a party Inviting everybody but you Frustrated Then you said “let’s take a walk” “Can we go somewhere to talk?” Now I’ve translated The shit that comes out your mouth Now I know without a doubt I’m so sick of this Enough is enough What the fuck was I thinking Cuz being with you’s like Working on the weekend So we’ll turn the music up louder Tell everybody come through Cuz I’m having a party Inviting everybody but you When midnight comes it goes on and on And the past falls back in my head cuz I’m Dizzy having visions of you screaming at me But guess what I don’t gotta listen now And baby I know you’ll be missing out So go tell all your friends how much you hate me, and leave me be Everybody but you Chillin at the get together Said it wouldn’t last forever Oh whatever Here’s the best bad news Kelly said she didn’t even really like you Midnight rolls on I’m gettin’ kinda dizzy and I think I seen a vision of you screaming at me Can’t shake you off Girl you really got to me At the party singing part of me Break my back When you asked I’m still last in line Screaming match Every night Every night

I can’t get you Out of my head, out of my head Spinning around the edge Play it again, play it again Yeah but I’m down with it Always hear you in the background laughing You know I hate it when you’re not around Got me tripping on an everlasting sound Swore I saw you make a right down Hudson Even though I know you’re out of town Disappeared into the thin air But you knocked me to the ground I can’t get you Out of my head, out of my head Spinning around the edge Play it again, play it again Yeah but I’m down with it Feels like I’ve known you for a lifetime a never ending curiosity A page I’ve read a million times before it frays Well if Happiness is one moment it can change it all before you show it Then before you know We’re back down the road That drives me up the wall I can’t get you Out of my head, out of my head Spinning around the edge Play it again, play it again Yeah but I’m down with it

Fake It 03:02
Summer couldn’t move quick enough Not the kind of chillin I was thinking of Getting used to a space in love And you noticed, it feels hopeless we’re Playing fiction in a parking lot Anything to be more than an afterthought Crack a smile, say thanks a lot We’re still hopeless, but were noticing If all that we’ve known is the chase all along Then why’re we hung up here between right and wrong? Saying oh, we made it Nobody knows we’re empty, so we fake it Right through to that Monday smile We’re still reminded can’t be divided That’s when you know We made it Just keep me saying alright I’m missing what was in front of me Want the point to come across subtly Never what it was supposed to be And you noticed, it feels hopeless We’re waiting on a way to get through the night Just know I always saw you in a golden light Never caring what’s wrong or right If I’m being honest Saying oh, we made it Nobody knows we’re empty, so we fake it Right through to that Monday smile We’re still reminded can’t be divided That’s when you know We made it Just keep me saying alright If all that we’ve known is between right and wrong I’ll be there in the space where I’ve been all along We’re more than the words that we say in the end We bend and we break so there’s something to mend Saying oh, we made it Nobody knows we’re empty, so we fake it Oh, we made it Nobody knows we’re empty, so we fake it Right through to that Monday smile We’re still reminded can’t be divided That’s when you know We made it Just keep me saying alright

Half Empty 03:31
Is there something wrong with me? Is there a key to the door? And is there puzzle piece That I must’ve ignored? ‘Cause I’ve lied around the world enough And I’ve tried to be who I was before So I’m done digging it up when I find time after time I’m the glass half empty of every drink You’re the other half of me Yeah I tried to get away You were the one after all Like when you said to me Im here to tear down the walls Yeah you’ve been patient You keep saving me You never batted an eye Well, maybe the key is You were the pieces Time after time after time after time I’m the glass half empty of every drink You’re the other half of me It’s harder to stand With my head in the sand You’re pulling me up so I can see That oh, you’re the other half of me Sitting in a dark room Feeling like I’m see through Every time I see that you called Wishing you were here now Maybe I can heal now Lately I feel nothing at all But when it’s you and it’s me You’re the lock, I’m the key And though I know you’ll never stay Still I end up in your bedroom When everything goes back to The way you made me feel that day I’m the glass half empty of every drink You’re the other half of me It’s harder to stand With my head in the sand You’re pulling me up so I can see That oh, you’re the other half of me

Just Sound 03:22
It’s been some time since things felt right, I know that I missed the call last night, but you know that’s the way it goes I miss your smile, your laugh, your voice, I’d be with you if I had the choice, but we don’t have to be alone It’s all we know Ride tonight with just sound Up too high to come down With your face reflected We’ll stay connected Til it all comes back around I set the scene, you set the pace. No matter the time, the vibe or place, there’s no rules when we’ve got love. I feel the distance with no touch, it don’t mean shit when you mean so much. You’re not here but it’s enough. Without your touch You’re still enough Ride tonight with just sound Up too high to come down With your face reflected We’ll stay connected Til it all comes back around I’ve been waiting for a moment to feel this way, And every moment looking forward is worth the wait Without your touch You’re still enough Ride tonight with just sound Up too high to come down With your face reflected We’ll stay connected Til it all comes back around
8.
Seems fine, feels right We caught feelings on a lonesome drive Sometimes, we find That all I need is on the passenger side And it’s you Who made me believe Maybe marking up a calendar’s an old school thing Seems fine, feels right That kinda feeling that you want your whole life Wanna be crazy we can act like that Or just be lazy, babe, it’s not so bad Yeah, we can paint the town Say what you think and We can act like that We can act like that Low light, no risk I can feel it in my fingertips Green eyes closed lips You know we can’t help but notice that we’re Falling in love We couldn’t have planned it You caught me like a thief in the act red handed Seems fine, feels right That kinda feeling that you want your whole life Wanna be crazy we can act like that Or just be lazy, babe, it’s not so bad Yeah, we can paint the town Say what you think and We can act like that We can act like that Forget the rest Stick with me instead There’s nothing like the feeling of me and you Yeah, we can paint the town Say what you think and We can act like that We can act like that I wanna know where you stand What makes me a man I said you’re keeping me sober You know I lied to you over and over again So where have you been? I’m thinking that you can save me But still you’re telling me maybe It’s making me crazy Wanna be crazy we can act like that Or just be lazy, babe, it’s not so bad Yeah, we can paint the town Say what you think and We can act like that We can act like that Forget the rest Stick with me instead There’s nothing like the feeling of me and you Yeah, we can paint the town Say what you think and We can act like that We can act like that
9.
I see the lack of care in your eyes I feel the rain when you sing So I’ll apologize a third time When I didn’t do anything Something about you was electric But now you’re pulling the plug Talk is cheap but you’re expensive I think we’ve had enough Where were you when the world stopped turning? Was I a fool for ever thinking I could get you to stay? Been thinking we were all that Still on the fast track Guess I’m the one who’s caught up by getting carried away I gave you my heart as a keepsake But it wasn’t worth a damn You’re one to talk when you were two faced And I gave them both a chance I’ll be the one who’s lifting me up I think we’ve had enough Where were you when the world stopped turning? Was I a fool for ever thinking I could get you to stay? Been thinking we were all that Still on the fast track Guess I’m the one who’s caught up by getting carried away I’ll be the one who’s lifting me up Took far too long for me to see If only I knew what we would become I’d know to leave
10.
Sundress 03:11
Well I guess You faded from fondness Like your favorite sundress That you haven’t worn in while So I said Let’s chase after moments The smell of the ocean And our clothes in a pile If the sun is out Why’s it raining down? It’s like every days the same We just sit around And forget about All the plans we made I just want to wake up To you in blue and yellow From the waist up How could I forget Your silhouette, hits Barely above the knee There’s always gonna be That one forever thing Attached to you and me Did you stray Am I too little too late Forever’s not always In one blink of an eye Would you stay So much here left to say Is it me or you who changed? And do you wonder why? If the sun is out Why’s it raining down? It’s like every days the same We just sit around And forget about All the plans we made So let’s talk in bed ‘til 4am Awake and so alive Like wet cement Press the sentiment permanently So let’s write a new page Ignite the new age tonight, yeah I just want to wake up To you in blue and yellow From the waist up How could I forget Your silhouette, hits Barely above the knee There’s always gonna be That one forever thing Attached to you and me
11.
Waking up to all of this You called and said you’re over it But how am I believing it? I heard my name You screamed that shit Why am I the way I am? I’m constantly the radiance I’m dealing with the consequence I want it all or none of it All of it All of it I watched you fall away Evade accountability Given you all that you wanted and more Now it’s all too late We were on to something great But you had no patience to see what’s in store Some minds don’t change I’ve got a lot to figure out If you never come around I know that you have had your doubts Here’s some more to talk about Built it from the thinnest air But how could you just leave it there? An unrealistic love affair You thought I’d always follow you Anywhere Everywhere I watched you fall away Evade accountability Given you all that you wanted and more Now it’s all too late We were on to something great But you had no patience to see what’s in store And if I can’t change you still I don’t think anyone else will Cause now it’s all too late We were on to something great And you had no patience to see what’s in store I watched you fall away Evade accountability Given you all that you wanted and more Now it’s all too late We were on to something great But you had no patience to see what’s in store And if I can’t change you still I don’t think anyone else will Cause now it’s all too late We were on to something great And you had no patience to see what’s in store Some minds don’t change
