Track Name: Hold On (Feat. Megan Doherty)
Can you forgive me for those things I said?
I had too much to drink again
It's just that so much time has passed
I thought that maybe we could be friends

I've read all of your messages
what did you think I'd gain from them?
I thought by now you'd understand
that there's no reconciling this

It's hard not living in the past
when we had something I thought would last
we were so much younger then
all I want is you to let me in

why can't you take a hint?
I've moved on so get over it
I don't regret the time that we had
why can't you leave it at that?

you can't hold on to something that's dead
at some point you gotta lay it to rest
we had our time and we gave it our best
it was fun but we can't live it again

I just wanna live it again
Track Name: Die Alone
Well I know that sooner or later I'm gonna be
wrapped up in the white, white sheets
of a hospital room
and the hallways are glowing fluorescently
and the smell of bleach is making me come to
and the room is lit by a TV screen
playing silently
no subtitles on
I always thought it would come to this
but now I know

I'm gonna die alone
I'm gonna die alone
I'm gonna die alone
I'm gonna die alone

The light shimmers on the linoleum
in this empty room
what do I do now?
I don't think that I've ever
heard silence quite this loud
and who would have thought that after all these years
I'd still wish you were here
maybe you'll never know
but what I wouldn't give for a hand to hold
if just to watch me go

I'm gonna die alone
I'm gonna die alone
I'm gonna die alone
I'm gonna die alone
