Track Name: Happy
I know at times I'm cruel
Lately I haven't been myself
It's not all due to you
Just a battle with this hell

And I don't want anything from you
I don't want money
Don't want your things
Just sweet memories of you
Back to times when we were happy too.

I guess we could go on
Pretending nothing's wrong
But too much pain has passed
Between us now to ever make it last

And I don't want anything from you
I don't want money
Don't want your things
Just sweet memories of you
Back to times when we were happy too
Track Name: Why This, Why Now
What is the reason, I feel this way?
Is it the season? It's dragging me down
I don't have an excuse, there's no one to blame
I feel like a failure, and I'm so ashamed

Why this, why now?
We made it through everything, thought we make it through somehow
Why you why me?
When the end is near, forget philosophy.

Why is the reason, how it comes to this?
Here I am leaving, and there you sit
I don't have an excuse, but it's just so hard
To watch all our things move
From where they belong

Why this why now?
We'd made it through everything, thought we'd make it through somehow
Why you? Why me?
When the end is near for get philosophy.
Track Name: Eyes On the Prize
Nobody told you life was easy
Nobody promised you a taste
Above and beyond what you have worked for
Above and beyond this mess you've made

Nobody told you you were different
Nobody promised you'd be free
To do what you want while others feed you
And make sure you have all that you need

Cause I know how good it could be
If your eyes were on the prize
I'm already lonely
When I look into your eyes
But I get so damned frustrated
Cause I'm not supposed to say
Stand here looking backward
While you waste your time
While you waste your time away
Track Name: Black and Blue and Grey All Over
It's not a road that I'd recommend
It's not a town everyone could stay in
But given a chance I'd do it over again
Cause I'm better now than I've ever been

It's not a wind that will whisk you away
It's not a word you've always wanted to say
But what you gave me, no one can take that away
And I think of you each and every day

I'm black and blue and grey all over
Black and blue and grey all over
Black and blue and grey and all over you
