Track Name: Cut Offs
I've been losing touch with everything I used to care about
Maybe it's my fault that I don't have as many close friends as before
I've been trying my hardest to hold on to those things I know I'll miss
I'm not sure who I'll be after this

I'll try harder next time
I'll push myself to be the person I should be
But if you have some faith in me, I can work through this
We can work through this

I'm feeling stronger, better, don't want to let this slip
I've been holding my head a little higher this week
It's not an instant thing, it'll take some time
But I'm slowly gaining some piece of mind
I think I'm getting better
I think it's getting easier
Track Name: Guesswork
Parting is such sweet sorrow but why does it leave such a sour taste in my mouth?
You won't return the same as you were in that Summer in 2008
When worries were few and the Sun only shined

I guess to move on is to grow, but maybe not this time

Sit back, think back
Accept the truth
We were more than just friends, why did you have to change?
What do you feel that you've gained?

There was that night that we laid under the stars in your back garden
Whilst our friends shouted profanities in the corner, drowning thoughts in a bottle of cheap rum

Getting out of that small town where you were known and loved for who you were

I've grown, I'm better without you
I know I'm better without you
I've grown, I'm better without you
I hope I'm better without you
Track Name: Further Afield
The sea air used to taste so sweet but now the salt stings my eyes
I never realised that this was how much a place could die

I spent a year working in the town that raised me
Now I've left and I miss it daily
I never thought that I'd have to deal with this

I just feel like I've got nothing here, it doesn't feel like home
Could it be the grit under my feet?
Or the wind that chills my bones?

Can someone tell me was it is that I'm missing?
I feel so lost in this place that I'm living

The lack of sleep caught up to me and I miss my own bed
I wake up tired every morning: I never seem to sleep well

It's the first time I've felt lonely
Thought I was stronger than this
I couldn't keep myself from splintering

Piece me back together
Track Name: What I'd Planned
A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step
But, every time I try, there's something there to hold me back
Because time erodes like a wave cutting notches at the bottom of a cliff, threatening collapse
Struggling to keep my head above water

Maybe I'm not as strong as I thought I was, back at the start
I'm eroding, withering, collapsing, rebuilding

Lacking purpose or direction, these last few months have been breaking me down
As I waste my time on those that didn't want my help
Just fighting against me at every step
And I feel myself crumbling

They say you judge a man by the company he keeps
But I'm just starting to reach the heights of what's expected of me

Maybe if the coin was flipped you'd see my side
