Track Name: Everything
The sun is fading too fast
for me to catch up
this world is spinning too quick
to ever have time enough

you are the person
I hope to become
it's time you start to realize
all that you are

you are everything
and you act like you're nothing
you are my whole world
you should start acting like it

you're everything and you act like you're nothing
you're everything and you act like you're nothing

you can't count out the cliches
after all, they're true
but the way you live your life
it's original

after all those conversations
you've had with me
it's driving me crazy
how you can't see

you are everything
and you act like you're nothing
you are my whole world
you should start acting like it

you're everything and you act like you're nothing
you're everything and you act like you're nothing
Track Name: Dear Sister
Dear sister,
I know it's hard to ever feel okay. I know somedays it feels like there will never be a happy end, but you should know you've got a friend.

Dear sister,
I know that you will probably hate this song and even though it'll take so many days before you sing the words, I've known that you have loved me all along.

Dear sister,
I know that mom and dad don't understand. They've both had hell to deal with, but you know what it's okay. We've come to better days. Sometimes it's better broken anyways.

Dear sister,
I wish that you could learn from my mistakes. I wish I could just write em down and save you so much time, but I think that you'll find some lessons you can only teach yourself.

Dear Natalie,
I don't think that you know how much you're loved. It's not just me, it's everyone you come across. It's not your fault. They did this to us don't you see how beautiful things really are? Don't you see that you can love everyone?
Track Name: Heaven Sent
I picture you now
standing there, proud of me
for all the things I've done
I know that you're watching,
but I'm just here waiting for
a sign of your life

your life was taken, without my consent
your life was taken, without my consent

it was heaven sent
it was heaven sent

only times I see you is
through some glass
and other times,
i'm staring at the grass
looking at your stone

I feel so alone
without you, I'm so lost

your life was taken, without my consent
your life was taken, without my consent

it was heaven sent
it was heaven sent

just have one question for some God above:
why would you take the only person I've ever loved?
you can't do that, I never got to okay that decision
i feel like you've incisioned me

your life was taken, without my consent
your life was taken, without my consent

it was heaven sent
why was it heaven sent?
Track Name: PBR
You are all I ever want
nothing compares to what we've got
what you've done hasn't changed a thing
I still want you to want me

Sometimes I sneak into the bar
I never order any drinks, don't wanna go too far
and I wish you could sneak in with me
but that makes no sense cause you're 23

Did you ever love me like I love you
you know I think that there are very few
people who have ever felt that way
do you realize what you've done

Are we just never gonna talk again
forget the lover, I miss my friend
it's hard to tell what's right from wrong
i miss when it was simple

Did you know I loved you then
stupid boy I love you always
and now you're gone,
but you're everywhere, you're everything darling
it's so unfair that you never think of me

Float along
drift away
never be real
I'll be a distant memory
how does it feel

how does it feel knowing you
ruined, ruined
ruined, ruined
ruined, ruined
the only real thing you ever knew
Track Name: Big Sky
Bought a ticket to a new town
it's a one way
gotta see my life go somewhere
more than someday

Ditched my luggage filled with
steady flakes and possibilities
packed a bag filled up with dice
hope I roll Yahtzee

I'll miss this big sky
away from the people
and the stars so bright
fall out of this darkness
in the sweet sunshine
i'll miss this big sky

In five, ten years from now
i'd like to see me
living out my dreams
it might sound arrogant, but
normal life is simply not for me
I find that people think I'm crazy
when I say I'm gonna make it
it's like they're scared of happiness

They need a big sky
a place to feel lonely and
whole at the same time
fall out of the darkness
in the sweet sunshine
take a look at the big sky

(whistles)

Look up at the big sky
away from the people
and the stars so bright
fall out of your darkness
in the sweet sunshine

Take a look at the big sky
Take a look at the big sky
I'll be up in the big sky.
