Track Name: Those Miles Meant Everything
We're both still suffocating

Waiting for something, waiting for nothing
It's what I feared the most
We're surrounded by lights,
Each one is like a fucking ghost
And each one shines out
Showing what used to be
They never stayed for too long

They fade so quickly
We used to shine so bright

So sick of new beginnings
So fucking sick of this brand new page
If we go to sleep now
We don't need to see another day

Never asked for this clean break
We never needed a brand new start,
I never needed a brand new start
Just a different heart

I used to think about where we'd meet
Could we meet outside of what we used to be
Like the summer that fades so quickly

I used to think about where we'd be
Could we meet outside of everything
The summer fades so quickly,
It loses all of its beauty

Green turns to red, then turns to gold
And the summer air, it grows so cold.
Track Name: Fuck Living With Sadness
I know there’s a silence that will never be filled
The smiles that cover up the scars that never heal
There’s still a sadness that’s engrained on our hearts
So unprepared for it all but longing for those false starts

It’s like nothing that we ever had dreamed
Pushing everything until it burst at the seams
Lost air, found in each other’s lungs
Listing all our faults to all the loudest songs

We keep losing our way
So tired of saying goodbye
We’ll just keep singing those sad old songs

Never been more scared of the future
We’ve spread ourselves too fucking thin
Holding on to all this dead weight
We’re quickly losing everything

I know there is a silence that will never be filled
The smiles that cover up the scars that never healed
There’s still a sadness that’s engrained on our hearts
So unprepared for it all but longing those false starts

See the sky about to rain
It’s the only thing that makes me feel safe
Standing under the greyest skies
The rain falls so hard, we can open our eyes

This will never be perfect
Too many tears left staining our skin
This will never be perfect
But I’d rather never wake up,
Than go back to how things were

Keep singing the loudest songs
Keep repeating those sad old songs
Because this will never be perfect
This will never be fucking perfect

Just keep singing the loudest songs
Keep repeating those sad old songs
