Track Name: You Let Me Down
I loved the pleasure of your company
Everything was okay when your hands were there to comfort me
And I know that after all I put you through
The pleasure of my absence was the least that I could give to you

I got swept away in your oceans
You told stinging truths, and woah, they left me swollen
And I know you never meant to injure me
So I reached for your hands but your fingers were too slippery

So can we take it from the top
Before I take the blame
I wasn't what you thought I was
Oh, what a shame
I put my trust in you, in you

So can we take it from the top
Before I take the blame
I wasn't what you thought I was
Oh, what a shame
I put my trust in you
And you let me down
You let me down

I know I gave you a fair warning
It never stopped you all those we stayed up 'til six in the morning
And at first you hesitated, fingers hovering
But of course, I let you in when you wanted to discover me

Before I take the blame
I wasn't what you thought I was
Oh, what a shame
I put my trust in you
And you let me down
You let me down
Track Name: Anything That You Want
I wanna write a song that hurts you like you hurt me
I wanna write a song that makes you feel ugly and unworthy
I wanna write a song that fills you with anxiety
And if you never sleep another night, well, that's alright with me

I could be anything that you want (x6)

I wanna write a song about the way you left me
I wanna write a song that's inconsolable and messy
And I wanna write a song about the way you looked at me
The first time I woke up on you shoulder, I was so happy

I could be anything that you want (x6)

When you said you had to leave me
'Cause you would never need me
Like I need you
Like I need everyone
I felt my emotions
Overwhelm the moment
Have you ever felt everything, everything, everything all at once?
I felt everything all at once

I could be anything that you want (x3)
Track Name: Repetitive
He says he lives for words
Words will be the death of me
They take me down with their accuracy
and pierce me like a bullet

I wanna hear
Oh, Oh, Oh
I don’t wanna learn new things
I just wanna forget all the things I already know with that
Oh, Oh, Oh
I don’t wanna feel real things
I just wanna forget who I am, forget that I’m hollow

I like soft things, I like sweet things
But I’m a bite your nails down the skin and let ‘em bleed thing
I like nice things, I like clean things
But I’m a hold your breath until your lungs begin to scream thing
Cliches soothe me, Bass lines move me
Empty words are wonderfully coma inducing
Don’t wanna hear my heart beat, turn up the drum machine
Don’t wanna hear myself think, I wanna hear ‘em sing


Oh, Oh,Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
I wanna sing with the chorus forget that I’m alone (x2)


I used to live for words
When I was in love with poetry
But now the lull of simplicity
is just the way I like it

My edges are so rough
Rougher than I ever thought they’d be
But synthetic sounds can soften me
Like a force of erosion, void of emotion

I like soft things, I like sweet things
But I’m a bite your nails down the skin and let ‘em bleed thing
I like nice things, I like clean things
But I’m a hold your breath until your lungs begin to scream thing
Cliches soothe me, Bass lines move me
Empty words are wonderfully coma inducing
Don’t wanna hear my heart beat, turn up the drum machine
Don’t wanna hear myself think, I wanna hear ‘em sing


Oh, Oh,Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
I wanna sing with the chorus

It’s better if it’s repetitive, it’s repetitive, it’s repeti-teti-tetive (x3)
Track Name: Lullaby
You're such a sweetheart
But you're still your father's daughter
You're always drowning
Even in the calmest waters
I know it keeps you up at night
So I wrote you a lullaby
'Cause if you can't sleep
I can't sleep

You're a romantic
But the way you love is reckless
You wear emotion
the way some girls wear a necklace
I know it keeps you up at night
So I wrote you a lullaby
'Cause if you can't sleep
I can't sleep

The doctors said your head is full of dirty rotten chemicals
That keep you up all through the night
No lullaby could set this right
But I'm gonna try

You're just a dreamer
And I know you only mean well
You lost your way and
Put everybody through hell
So now it's time to close your eyes
And sing yourself a lullaby
'Cause if you can't sleep
I can't sleep
Track Name: I'm Not Broken
It's hard to keep a straight face
'Cause god we're such a cliché
We can't seem to find our way home
If we called the doctors
Would they put us back together
Or would they say we're better off alone
I'm not alright
'Cause I don't know who's good and who's got
Good intentions
But I'll be fine
So won't you tell me it's okay and give up your pretentious


I'm not broken, I'm not broken, you can't fix me, I'm not broken
I'm not broken, I'm not broken, you can't fix me, I'm not broken
I don't know what you've been told, but I've got style and I've got soul
I don't know what you've been told, but I've got style and I've got soul

The girls out on the street, they've got ground beneath their feet
It doesn't mean their heads aren't in the clouds
Please don't tell me that I'm strange
And that no one acts this way
Don't you see, you're shouting all my fears out loud
Don't forget when we first met and I was something so brand new
And don't ignore no matter how I fall apart I pick myself up for you

I'm not broken, I'm not broken, you can't fix me, I'm not broken
I'm not broken, I'm not broken, you can't fix me, I'm not broken
I don't know what you've been told, but I've got style and I've got soul
I don't know what you've been told, but I've got style and I've got soul

Don't make me feel like a pre-teen
Falling for some middle school dream
Don't make me feel like a head case
All I did was make a mistake
(x2)

I'm not broken, I'm not broken, you can't fix me, I'm not broken
I'm not broken, I'm not broken, you can't fix me, I'm not broken
I don't know what you've been told, but I've got style and I've got soul
I don't know what you've been told, but I've got style and I've got soul
Track Name: When I Sing
Dear God, the universe and everything
I have always been the girl who does not believe in anything
And no one taught me how to pray
So I hope that you can hear me when I sing

Dear God, the universe and everything
I need to believe that somebody is listening
'Cause I have never been so lonely
I’m tired of this winter, bring me spring

Bring me spring, bring me spring
Or bring me something I can use to mend my broken little wings
Bring me spring, bring me spring
Or bring me something I can use to mend my broken little wings

Dear God, the universe and everything
I can feel my bones crack under the weight that I’ve been carrying so I am holding my hands up
and I hope that you can hear me when I sing

When I sing, when I sing
I can feel everyone who's ever prayed for anything
When I sing, when I sing
I can feel everyone who's ever prayed for anything

When I sing
(x4)
Track Name: This Time
I make myself sick, I can’t help it
I’ve always had this darkness, who am I without it?
My thoughts have run wild for 22 years
And I’d have thought that by now
I’d have swallowed my fears

But every time I break down hysterically
I say it’s the very last time, I swear it will be
I try to change, I try to cope
I always climb back from the edge of my rope

This time, this time is different (x2)

I’m gonna try a new medication
Eastern religion or form of meditation
I’ll change how I eat and change how I speak
and I’ll repeat my mantra before I go to sleep

But suddenly it sinks in, there’s no time to fight it
I say it’s the very last time, I can’t keep going like this
I’m gonna change, and I’m gonna cope
I’m gonna hold on to what’s left of my hope

This time, this time is different (x2)

(Instrumental solo)

I like his eyes, and I like his brain
He makes me laugh and I make him do the same but
He doesn’t know I can’t keep it together
I know I can love him as soon as I get better

But what if I break down hysterically?
I say it’s the very last time, Oh god I hope it will be
I’m gonna change and take control
From now on I swear I’m normal

This time, this time I’m different (x2)

Can you see my face? Does it look like I’m lying?
I’m gonna be okay or I’m gonna die trying (x2)

This time, this time I’m different (what if I’m not, what if I’m not) (x2) This time, this time I’m different
Track Name: When I Get Better
When I get better you’ll be mine
And we’ll go dancing all the time
And I’ll be beautiful and thin
My dress will show a little skin

And I will never think of dying
Or call you up at midnight crying
No I will only laugh and smile
And you’ll feel careless like a child

And you’ll say you love me
Say you need me and I’ll say it right back believe me
When I get better, if I get better

When I get better I swear it’s true
I will be taking care of you
My cool hands will soothe your aches
I’ll only give and never take

And I will always take my pills
And I will always pay my bills
And you will have nothing to fear
You’ll be so happy when I’m near

And you’ll say you love me
Say you need me
And I’ll say it right back believe me
When I get better, if I get better
