Track Name: 2008
this town never felt this empty, but the city never shined as bright
I know this is a bad idea, but i can't go back and
those waves, they haunt the place I sleep.
can we go back? now we pretend we've never met.

I'm just scared of trying and falling down

I never finished what I started and four years is a long time to wait

you always had a way of finding me at my worst
and now i don't know if i can pick out my best
so i'll drive back home to who i used to be
and everything seemed alright

I'm just scared of trying and falling down

(a long time, a long time)

I never finished what I started and four years is a long time to wait
Track Name: By the Way, Congratulations
your memories play with my mind
I mean it - I'm done trying
now that I see through your lies
I won't be your place to hide

everyone's so proud, I walked away head down.
but I need this, more than I can fake it.
why do you stand your ground,
when you know that you were wrong?
you never cared, you never really cared?

your memories play through my mind
I mean it - I'm done trying
now that I'm doing just fine
I'll keep you off my mind
I won't believe you next time
you tell me that you're so sorry
now that I see through your lies
I won't be your place to hide

you said we'd work things out
before you changed your mind.
now that I'm better off
the angst is fading away, for now.
every one is so proud, of me
I hope you see you gave me what I need.
Track Name: The Solitaire Song
the last time I saw you, was last November.
I guess it's been a while.
the leaves were the same color, this time last year.
so I'll stare out this window until all that's green has cleared.

and I know that things have changed but I hope you feel the same
when I show up at your front door and I tell you where I've been

I guess I'll show up at your house (like I always do)
and we'll sit and talk about that night (we got really lost)
I think we've learned a lot this year (about how people change)
I'm getting sick of losing all my friends
Track Name: Surf Drive (featuring Ian Dillon and Chris Piquette)
how did I find my way home this time?
I stumbled across my guilty pleasure.
so, nostalgia I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine.

I'll write my thoughts in this lake
reflect it into the clouds
and watch it rain on this town
I'll close my eyes and hope for sleep
I'll never learn my lesson

the sun goes down at the worst times
and it makes it hard for me to sleep
and I know there are thousands of secrets
that you're willing to keep from me
and now I'm back at Surf Drive again

you've heard it once and you've heard it all but what can I do?
I guess you were right, Massachusetts boy never give up.
i'll let my guilt speak for itself when I say
I need this like a lie needs beleif.

I'm just tired of letting go
