Track Name: I Was Hoping This Could Save Me
And this is for the ones who stopped me, when I was sinking like a brick through water. And I know that this sounds fucked up, but fighting the current made me stronger.

It took me seeing the bottom to know where I went wrong, I swore I wouldn't take that road again I gotta earn back what i lost.

And this is for the ones I love, the ones I hold a spot for deep inside my chest i hope they all know who they are.
And I can't begin to tell you what a wake up call that was. And my pride took a beating and that's exactly what I needed.

And this is for the ones who stopped me when I was sinking like a brick through water. And I know this sounds fucked up but fighting the current made me stronger. And it took me seeing the bottom, to know where I went wrong. I'd never take that road again, I gotta earn back what I lost.

And this is for the ones i love the ones I hold a spot for deep inside my chest I hope they all know who they are.

I know this is where I went wrong and I know that second chances don't come easy.
And I'm forever grateful for the second chance life gave me, rock bottom hit so close to home I wasn't sure if this could save me.

I know this is where I went wrong and I know that second chances don't come easy.

And this is for the ones I love the ones I hold a spot for deep inside my chest I hope they all know who they are.
Track Name: Blame It On The Both Of Us
That was the only time I saw you cry. It cut me deep knowing that I was the reason why. I made a promise to myself to never turn my back on my best friend. And every memory we had was in the shadow of our past.

I know I let you down but I swore I'd make it up to you. A promise kept now means more than anything.

I was just a kid my head was filling up with smoke. I didn't know a single fucking thing about love.

I know I let you down but I swore I'd make it up to you. A promise kept now means more than anything.

I watched you smile in disbelief.. cuz you know my talk is cheap.

Well I've never been in love for long enough to know if that's was it really was, I still blame it on the both of us.

Track Name: Long Drives & Fist Fights
Called you out once again for always running your mouth, what were you thinking when you tried to take the conversation in a different direction.

You gotta be the change you want to see, and work hard kid, cuz it won't come easy, trust me, I've been doing this since 16, and now im 23.

The further I get into the thick of it all, you know I've come to count on my friends to pick me up when I fall, and I've come to count you out, no I can't count on you for anything.

What are we doing here tonight? We drove 50 miles west, was it worth it just to pick a fight?

I'm getting close to the end of my rope. I'm trying hard not to get caught up in this shit, I know its not worth it.

The further I get into the thick of it all, you know I've come to count on my friends to pick me up when I fall, and I've come to count you out, no I can't count on you for anything.

What are we doing here tonight? We drove 50 miles west, was it worth it just to pick a fight?

I know that my temper seems to flip. And it's not because I hate this, it's just that I'm afraid to fail so please bear with me and we can get through this. I left everything behind just to do this, so lets do it.

The further I get into the thick of it all, you know I've come to count on my band to pick me up when I fall, well I'm glad I've got my friends to lean on.

I finally figured out what I'm doing here tonight - I just want to get this right. I finally figured out what I'm doing here tonight and it was worth every single mile.
Track Name: Longshot
Don't beat yourself up kid. It's all in your head, yeah you've finally figured out that you'd rather be dead, than on the grind - the 9 to 5, for the rest of your life.

So I started up a punk/rock band with my best friend. Yeah we both grew up on Lennox, and then we left.

And I know that I'll miss home, but tonight I just can't wait to see the road.

Clap your hands, sing along, if you want to see me leave this town.

We will not fade. You're a longshot kid, don't get carried away. We are the light that burns in a city's flame.

So they say that we thrive on the unknown, but I'm proud of myself, cuz I know where I'm from. And I wouldn't be that same man without Glasgow.

We will not fade. We are the light that burns in a city's flame. You're a longshot kid, don't get carried away.

We will not fade. We are the light that burns in a city's flame.

So they say that we thrive on the unknown, but I know where I'm from. (x2)

Track Name: The Lost Boys
I've made up my mind, this is what I'm doing with my life.. and ill scream every night just to get by, and ill try to remember the state line, for every night that I'm not at home - there's a song in me about to be born.

Now I've given up on my old life on the fact that I could see where I would be in the next few years... and its become clear to me, that I'll never settle for anything less than my dreams.

My old friends think I've lost it because I'm acting distant. They say I'm too involved in this fantasy I'm living. Now I've come to the conclusion, that my life was a bore. I'm just a normal kid that couldn't take it anymore. For what it's worth, I'm glad that I can call you - you tell me not to give up now my words have some value.

I've given up on my first love on the fact that I can't see where we would be in the next few years... and its become clear to me, that I'll never settle for anything less than my dreams.

My old friends think I've lost it because I'm acting distant they say I'm too involved in this fantasy I'm living. For what its worth, I'm glad that I can call you - you tell me not to give up now my words, they hold some value.

And she said stick to what you know and you'll be just fine. And she said that this one was never the safe bet - but you were always one for taking risks. And I'm a lost boy on my own road, and I still don't want to grow up. And every night that I'm not at home, well there's a song in me about to be born.

AND WE'RE THE LOST BOYS ON OUR OWN ROAD AND WE STILL DON'T WANT TO GROW UP.
