Track Name: The Let Down
Stop talking about 2004 'cause I'm getting bored and it's our turn to settle the score
I wouldn't take this from anyone else but you
Which is crazy, 'cause you were the absolute worst to me
And to think that just last week, I was down begging at your feet
Ten bucks says it was easy watching me sink

I spent a long time thinking about, thinking about how to let me down
And now I know that I can't rely on anyone, no, I can't rely on anyone
But the one in the mirror making everything so much clearer
I can't rely on anyone, no, I can't rely on you

I'm a total mess from the cold of your shoulder
But now I'm used to it and I'm never going back
I told her everything, how we're making history
With a lifetime guarantee that you'll be the one missing me the most
Out of anyone on the East Coast

I spent a long time thinking about, thinking about how to let me down
And now I know that I can't rely on anyone, no, I can't rely on anyone
But the one in the mirror making everything so much clearer
I can't rely on anyone, no, I can't rely on you

We can't be friends, no we can't, 'cause it never works in the end but I'm trying, I'm trying
We can't be friends, no we can't, 'cause it never works in the end but I'm trying, I'm trying

We can't be friends, no we can't, 'cause it never works in the end but I'm trying, I'm trying
Every song I wrote this past year has been about you in some way shape or form in hopes you come crawling back for more but I need that like I need a bullet to the head
I'm better off dead, I'm better off dead

We can't be friends, no we can't, 'cause it never works in the end, I'm trying, I'm trying

I spent a long time thinking about, thinking about how to let me down
And now I know that I can't rely on anyone, no, I can't rely on anyone
But the one in the mirror making everything so much clearer
I can't rely on anyone, no, I can't rely on you
Track Name: Shore Drive
I've got more scars and stories than you'll ever see me admit
But at least I know it goes to show I put my heart in it
I've been living out of boxes in a room I can't call my own without getting the taste of dishonestly all over my tongue

Trying to figure out whether to be mad at myself or the world that walked out when things weren't so easy

We were just kids dead set on running away, searching for a reason to stay
I won't miss the town I always hoped this be, the town that I no longer need

I wrote a letter to all my friends, every letter ended with
"I guess for now I'll go to bed, I'm sorry that I'm such a wreck"
Now I'm looking to the passing signs to see if they can tell me why and where I went wrong
Anchors tied to my ankles, and water up to my wrists
Sinking deeper into the ocean but I'm not going down like this

We were just kids dead set on running away, searching for a reason to stay
I won't miss the town I always hoped this be, the town that I know longer need
The town I always hoped this be, the town that I no longer need

We were just kids dead set on running away
We were just kids searching for a reason to stay
We were just kids dead set on running away
We were just kids searching for a reason to stay
