Track Name: New Boy
Standing on the corner in the pouring rain
Waiting for a ride but it never came
The city gets louder during the day
We talk so much we don’t know what to say
Only feeling down because I think too much
It always gets better when I feel your touch
Writing you a letter
I feel so exposed
Now I'm second-guessing
Every word I chose

Watercolouring my love
In between your lines
Take it outside when it’s done
Hang it up to dry
Watercolouring your love
In between my lines
Take me outside when you’re done
Hang me out to dry
Track Name: Growing Up
Live by yourself
You gotta live with yourself
And if you live alone
You’re gonna be alone

This is growing up
No one’s showing up
This is old
And it’s getting older
Track Name: Tell Me
Oh I
Know I’m
Better than all your lovers
Oh I
Know I'm
better than all the others

Tell me what I already know (about it)
Track Name: Want To
Feel it all around
Feeling like myself
Feeling underwhelmed
Can I feel it all with you?

I won’t do
What I want to
Track Name: Faded
All of these feelings
Everything lost in time
How are you dealing?
How can you say you’re fine?
I feel like I’m not my best
I look like I need some rest

I guess I’ll just get fucking faded
Track Name: Japan
On that flight

I’m not sure if I survived
The last night
I’m not so sure I was right

You’re not alone
Come back home
Track Name: Flipped
Oh my god
We just flipped our car
Now all my things
Are lying in the street

I had a little dream that I lost all my weed
And I really had to say
Is that such a bad thing?
Track Name: Getting By
When I went away
Everything changed
Now the harder I try
Can’t get it right
Spending all my life
Just getting by
Track Name: Restless
I lie awake
And I’m feeling anxious
Try not to make it worse
Stare at the ceiling
I’m getting the feeling I’m not going into work
I’m still awake
I’m feeling impatient
I try not to make a move
Stare at the ceiling
I’m getting the feeling I’m not going to make it through
I’m still awake
I look at your face
I wish I knew what to do

And I knew
What to do
Track Name: Shore
I don’t want to be on this side of the world
I don’t want to be in this part of the world
I don’t want to feel like I’m feeling now

Stuck on a rock in the side of the earth
I don’t want to be in this part of the world

Take a trip from shore to shore
Pack your shit and close the door
Take a pic so you can show her
Would you mind speaking slower?
