Track Name: Bruised
I'm broken
I'm beaten
I'm bruised
And I'm sorry

I'm sorry I wasn't good enough for you
I'm sorry you don't love me
And you never will
And I'm sorry
you'll never get to see who I become

But why am I sorry?
You'll never get to know me
Just like how I never knew you

Why am I sorry?
You are the one that left
you owe me the apology.
Track Name: Compassion & Growth
If love is a flower
It needs compassion to grow but
How do you nurture
When you feel all alone

And If hope is a candle
My wick has burnt away
My smoke is a waving, ash grey
I'm fading away

Im burnt out at both ends
I'm always exhausted
I'm so tired, I'm trying, I'm trying
Believe me I'm trying

I give up,
I can't do this anymore.

If love is a flower
It needs compassion to grow but
How do you nurture
When you feel all alone

And If hope is a candle
My wick has burnt away
My smoke is a waving ash grey
I'm fading away

I've built up a wall
To protect me from harm
But how will I know
When the right person comes along

I'm so afraid of letting anyone in
At risk of getting hurt
A broken heart heals protracted
Beating still unheard

I keep pretending
That everything's okay
But the truth is you're the reason
It's hard to smile everyday

The closer you look the less of me you'll see
Track Name: Blue
Have you ever felt
Like you don't mean something?
Like you don't know how to feel?
And you can't get out of bed
Because you're being underfed
And you can't stomach the thought
You smile but fake it
In hope that you make it
Out of this alive

You're not alone,
trust me I've been there,
you're not alone
trust me I'll be there
You're not alone
You're not alone

It's so hard to let people in
Let them see who you truly are
Because it hurts to let others know you're vulnerable
And it only gets worse the longer it stays in your head.
Everything's "your fault" and you think you deserve this

You're not alone,
trust me I've been there,
you're not alone
trust me I'll be there
You're not alone
You're not alone

Thinking you're weak and thinking you're worthless
Is a daily occurrence
which snowballs out of control
leaving you damaged and leaving you broken
Some people take their lives
Because they feel they need to
But it could all be prevented
If they had
Someone to talk to

I can see you're sad
I can see it in your eyes
that's what hurts the most
The fact you need to lie

If I lose you
I'll lose myself to
I know what you've been through
And how to end it to

You're not alone
Trust me I'll be there
You're not alone
Trust me I've been there

I can see you're sad
I can see it in your eyes
that's what hurts the most
The fact you need to lie

If you need me
I'll be by your side
Because I need you
To stay alive

I need you to stay alive
Track Name: TV
Laying in bed with no where to go
And watching TV
The same old shows

Just passing the time
Until it's time to see
that You're better
than you believe

I've been through it before
You're going through it now
You didn't know, I couldn't tell you
I can't explain how

I know what it's like
To sit in the dark
With no clear purpose
With no clear path

I can't help, I'm trying
It breaks my heart to see you hurting.
I can't help, I'm trying
The walls are thin, I hear you crying
I can't help I'm trying
You just hide behind closed curtains
I can't help I'm trying
I can't help , I can't help

I never really knew
And you never knew either
But I'm trying to help to
Keep you together

It doesn't get better
you get told that it does and
It doesn't get better
Because you're crying out loud

Laying in bed with no where to go
And watching TV
The same old shows

Just passing the time
Until it's time to see
that You're better
than you believe
Track Name: Cold Water
I feel like I'm drowning
I'm surrounded by cold
Its so hard to forget
You gave me so much to remember
I'm to0 afraid to be afraid
Of being afraid of losing you
Get out of my head
Get out of my head
Get out of my head

Please get out of my head
This is too hard for me
get out of my head
I don't want you to leave

Get out of my head
Get out of my head
Get out of my head
Track Name: This Is How It Feels
Why can't I let you go?
Why can't I move on ?
Why can't I find someone who makes me happy?
I can't , I've tried

But I hope you're happy
Because I'm far from being fine and
I hope you're happy
Because I'm just a waste of time

I was never good enough for you
I was scared of the truth
Scared that it was possible
that I could love you

And the thing that hurts the most
Is that I made you my happiness
And now that you're gone
You've taken it with you

You say you give
But all you do is take
And you've taken everything
That makes me, me

Why can't I let you go?
Why can't I move on ?
Why can't I find someone who makes me happy
I can't , I've tried

This is how it feels
To feel nothing
I wonder how it feels
To feel something again

Is this how you feel ?
Like nothing?
I wonder how you feel
I need to know

Have you ever felt worthless?
You make me feel worthless
Have you ever felt worthless?
Have you ever felt ?
