Track Name: Blossom
I've come to terms with everything that you expect of me.

There's a pressure here, that was never there,

An expectancy, a weight these shoulders cannot bear.

My bones may break but the words stay true.

Fuel the fire within my chest,

So this urge inside can be laid to rest.

Every scar I earn gives me peace of mind,

To prove these words aren't a waste of time.

Late at night, through my eyes I see it all so clearly.

Spent this last year in hindsight, never focused on what might be out in front of me.

You plant a seed in my mind, it's time for this to blossom,

Into something real, growing from the forgotten dreams

That I had repressed, given up and instead,

Made it clear that this wasn't where I belong.

Fuel the fire within my chest,

So this urge inside can be laid to rest.

Every scar I earn, gives me peace of mind,

To prove these words aren't a waste of time.

I can pretend to be something I'm not for as long as I want,

But I'm only fooling myself again.

My bones may break but the words stay true,

Everything I know, I owe it all to you.

Unlocked the door into my head, let my ambition run free,

Self-belief and confidence is the only key I need.
Track Name: Worthwhile
With each word, I try to find a way to focus this tired mind.

You'll tell me it's worth it in the end,

Or will I end up like the rest of them,

Fall back in line and remember when,

I was young and I was stupid,

I threw this away, my youth included.

Was there ever a time or even a place,

Somewhere we could all relate,

To memories we hold so close or the choice we'd regret the most.

And so I drop my head between my knees,

In search of perspective and clarity.

Now I've come to stick with those who care and understand the sentiments I share.

Those from a place where I call home couldn't make me feel more alone.

You made your choice and now I make mine,

I am the product of my dreams.

We'll do our best while we have time,

This is my shadow that never leaves.

Was there ever a time or even a place,

Somewhere we could all relate,

To memories we hold so close or the choice we'd regret the most.

And so I drop my head between my knees,

In search of perspective and clarity.

And you'll see your true colours start to show when it's make or break and you need to know.

So I've got myself dragged into this and as far as I can tell,

I'll never find another place somewhere I truly felt,

That I can make my mark and work to play my part.

I'm giving everything I have,

Everything I have.

If this falls through you know I’ll take it all to heart.

I won't let myself fall apart.
Track Name: Bittersweet
There is only so much tension that I can take,

Before my misplaced guilt expires I'll begin to break.

What's left to say, go on and prove me wrong,

Your guard was up and I kept quiet for far too long.

And I tried to think with my head and not my heart,

When I prolonged this problem and kept it in the dark.

Bring this to light, the writings on the wall,

You can't jump this fence, not this time,

I won't be here to break your fall.

I'm sick and tired of helping those who cannot help themselves,

The seasons change and your friendships will fade.

You can't promise what you cannot keep,

And I won't be here to break your fall.

I’ll bite my tongue till it bleeds,

The taste reminds me of bittersweet memories and misery.

Pieced you together like a broken plate,

I tried to keep you falling from the same mistakes,

Besides, you can see the signs of wear and tear,

Lost all control beyond repair,

Open your eyes become more aware,

Breathe it all in.

I'm sick and tired of helping those who cannot help themselves,

The seasons change and your friendships will fade.

You can't promise what you cannot keep,

And I won't be here to break your fall.

I hope that you take note and realise where we went wrong,

I've said my piece, now spare me all the grief,

You can't promise what you cannot keep,

And I won't be here to break your fall.
Track Name: Grounded
I talk myself down to lighten this weight,

'Cause I've got no strength to try and explain.

To try lighten this weight,

No strength left to try explain.

Still Introverted and self-contained,

I find my outlook changing but I'm just the same, a little smarter to the game.

I play my cards close to my chest and make amends for what you've done,

You'd run your mouth and make a mess that you would try and escape from.

We all have a point to prove but some with a little more to lose.

Everything has a price to pay, and this time I can't afford mistakes,

Keep my feet firm on the ground and wait.

I like to keep things to myself because my thoughts are my own,

Keep them trapped in my head and wait for this to blow

Over and not out of proportion,

So forgive me for approaching with a sense of caution.

And I've learnt that happiness will make you weak,

You feel content, you feel complete.

But it was never enough to stop feeding my addiction,

With false hope filled with contradiction.

I lie awake in bed, some things are better left unsaid.

I like to keep things to myself because my thoughts are my own,

Keep them trapped in my head and wait for this to blow

Over and not out of proportion,

So forgive me for approaching with a sense of caution.

I talk myself down to lighten this weight,

'Cause I've got no strength to try and explain.

I talk myself down to lighten this weight,

'Cause I've got no strength to try explain.

I like to keep things to myself because my thoughts are my own,

Keep them trapped in my head and wait for this to blow

Over and not out of proportion,

So forgive me for approaching with a sense of caution.
Track Name: Cave In
We all let the roof cave in,

But it's about how you crawl out to find the strength within.

This negativity is so overwhelming in a place so undeserving,

Won't jump this bridge before it's burning,

Won't take it anymore.

You overthink until you fall asleep,

What is it that I'm missing?

I felt better and brushed of the dirt,

Took note and my lessons were learnt.

Don't wake me up to go and bring me down,

Cos I'll think better of you when this picks up and turns around.

We live for the days ahead, sit tight, give your mind a rest,

So when the morning comes I know that nothing's changed.

You'll never have a change of heart,

But there's always a missing part while there's a reason to go on.

This negativity is so overwhelming in a place so undeserving,

Won't jump this bridge before it's burning,

Won't take it anymore.

We've been here before, feeling that all we've done is wrong and always wanting more.

Don't wake me up to go and bring me down,

Cos I'll think better of you when this picks up and turns around.

We live for the days ahead, sit tight, give your mind a rest,

So when the morning comes I know that nothing's changed.

I know that nothing's changed.

We all let the roof cave in,

But it's about how you crawl out to find the strength within.
