Track Name: Calamity
Dont say goodbye
Cause that means you have to leave
I was waiting to see you all week
It's not your fault
That I'm brought to my knees
I will find you eventually

~I've been getting sick of being stuck here
You've always been so close to me
My heart can't take another day without you
So I'll stay here in calamity~

And the quiet always seemed to get to me
It's 3am and I can't seem to sleep
Cause all I see in my dreams is another time of you and me
But now the beds empty constantly

~I've been getting sick of being stuck here
You've always been so close to me
My heart can't take another day without you
So I'll stay here in calamity~

You're so close but so far away
I'd give an arm and a leg just to see you again
But those three words that I say to you every day
Don't seem to ever change a thing

~I've been getting sick of being stuck here
You've always been so close to me
My heart can't take another day without you
So I'll stay here in calamity~
Track Name: I Don't Want To Die In Canada
We can make it out alive
But I don't think I can make the next few months without you by my side
And I'm changing the lock on my door
Just in case I end up unconscious on the floor
I guess it's been to long since I saw you last
I never knew 8 months could go by so fast
And I've started drinking every single day
I guess the effects are catching up on me

~I better not say what's on my mind
I better not let you know what's killing me inside
I hope that you won't go through with it
Because you're my everything~

Anchored down in place four months ago
And I swear I still see you in my sleep
We always said the world wasn't built for people like us
But that didn't mean I was asking you to leave

~I better not say what's on my mind
I better not let you know what's killing me inside
I hope that you won't go through with it
Because you're my everything~

We've been apart for months now
I've been busy picking up the pieces you left of me this time around
This is a pretty big mess you've made
You've taken a pretty big part of me

~I better not say what's on my mind
I better not let you know what's killing me inside
I hope that you won't go through with it
Because you're my everything~
Track Name: Naminé
I'll try to keep you on the line
But I'm driving through a tunnel towards the light
I can't make promises to stay
When it's hard enough for me to walk away

~tell me that you've got me on your mind
Persuade me to catch my breath and stay for the night
I don't need convincing to fall for you
Forgive me if I'm wrong but, do you still want me too?~

I'm trying my best to last the next few days
I'm sorry for behaving the worst kind of way
If all I have is you then I've got a lot to lose
But I can't seem to stabilize my mind keeps running loose

~tell me that you've got me on your mind
Persuade me to catch my breath and stay for the night
I don't need convincing to fall for you
Forgive me if I'm wrong but, do you still want me too?~

I'll make up a million excuses just to save you from me
But I can't seem to keep you away
All I'm needing now is some resolution
Do you want me to stay?
Track Name: Maybe I Could Stay
Maybe I could stay
Maybe it's worth waiting a couple of days
Just to see
If you love me

Maybe it's a long shot
Maybe I'm not even on your radar
You're definitely too good for me
But a boy can dream

~Maybe I could stay on your mind
Because you're always on mine
Maybe we could share a kiss
With luck like mine Id probably miss
But I'll hope that you'll stick around
Cause I can't picture leaving this time around

Maybe you could fall in love, fall for me
Maybe I'm just dreaming
Maybe I could stay
Cause you're perfect to me~

Maybe I should leave
Maybe I'm not good enough to be
The one you need
Because I'm falling apart, tragically
I should learn to be
More capable at this
Because I've spent so many years
Feeling all sorts of sick

~Maybe I could stay on your mind
Because you're always on mine
Maybe we could share a kiss
With luck like mine Id probably miss
But I'll hope that you'll stick around
Cause I can't picture leaving this time around

Maybe you could fall in love, fall for me
Maybe I'm just dreaming
Maybe I could stay
Cause you're perfect to me~


Maybe I could stay
Maybe I could be
More than just another boy from Sydney
Maybe it's a long shot that you'd ever fall for me
But I'm known to keep dreaming

~Maybe I could stay on your mind
Because you're always on mine
Maybe we could share a kiss
With luck like mine Id probably miss
But I'll hope that you'll stick around
Cause I can't picture leaving this time around

Maybe you could fall in love, fall for me
Maybe I'm just dreaming
Maybe I could stay
Cause you're perfect to me~
Track Name: How To Fight Your Ghosts
I guess I've been distant
And I wasn't there when you needed me most
But I don't understand
How things changed

And all the calls I made to you
To make sure you stuck by me
I hope you don't resent me
Because I chose to leave

~some things just aren't meant to be
So you really can't blame me
You're the reason I kept missing out on sleep

I'll set myself straight and try to move away
Because calamity is all you've left for me~

I guess I should be sorry
now you're probably a mess
I guess you'll want to blame me
Because I never seemed to ever give a shit

I'm just 'too busy"
Too concerned with making amends
You'll never really miss me
You're just gonna miss the taste of my lips

~some things just aren't meant to be
So you really can't blame me
You're the reason I kept missing out on sleep

I'll set myself straight and try to move
Further away
Because calamity is all you've left for me~

You're just
Another reason
I can't seem to sleep
And all this time I spent here
On the telephone
You never answered it

You better not come back here
I'm happy now I've
Called it quits
You're just a memory, I've learned
How to fight my ghosts
And move on from this

Another tragic chapter
I'll burn the pages
But I'll always remember it

I've learned
How to fight your ghosts
You won't be missed
