Track Name: Wayside Story - Back-To-Back
Dammit I'm
wide awake, but I can't seem to shake
the grip of my nightmares.
Just the fear of having less than my peers
rips me from all that's right here.

(Whether it be) recognition, independence, promiscuity,
I'm inadequate when I'm comparing you to me.
There's no truth to these shortcomings
yet I constantly feel outdone.

Recognition, independence, promiscuity,
I'm inadequate when I'm comparing you to me.
There's no truth to these shortcomings
yet I feel outdone.

Why do I breakdown every god damn detail
of your lives only to measure mine?
It's getting harder to keep myself back-to-back
with everyone out there
(as I watch the time go by).

How can I embrace the present moment
if I can't do the same for the life I've chosen?
I'm a disaster lining up back-to-back
with all of you out there
(I think I'm gonna lose my mind).

Hearing your stories detailing your glories
it feels like an indictment.
False narratives I concoct in my head
and so I'm reminded.

Of why I always feel so meager, so unworthy
to be in your presence, it's just so disconcerting.
Even alone it's unnerving how I
I feel outdone.

Why do I breakdown every god damn detail
of your lives only to measure mine?
It's getting harder to keep myself back-to-back
with everyone out there
(as I watch the time go by).

How can I embrace the present moment
if I can't do the same for the life I've chosen?
I'm a disaster lining up back-to-back
with all of you out there
(I think I'm gonna lose my mind).

I can't remember the last time I let myself be.
I've come to realize I'm my own worst enemy.
I've gotta channel all of my energy
to be come a better me.

Why do I breakdown every god damn detail
of your lives only to measure mine?
It's getting harder to keep myself back-to-back
with everyone out there
(as I watch the time go by).

How can I embrace the present moment
if I can't do the same for the life I've chosen?
I can't go on lining up back-to-back
with all of you out there
(WHAT A FUCKING WASTE OF TIME).
Track Name: Better Days - Without You
Thinking about the early days, we knew nothing about love.
The only thing we knew was how to be young.
Time flies and the people change,
But I've matured for the better and it shows.

I thought you were heaven but you put me through hell,
Well I'm back again and I want more, you're like a drug.
And I just can't get enough.

Fall in my arms again and I'll show you that I will never let you go,
And my love I will conquer, I'll seize the day.
I'll never be someone without you.

Always knew that it would come to this,
I've fallen hard again and you know it.
One look in your eyes turns into a stare,
But with those lips I long for, how could I resist?

And now I'm hooked.

Fall in my arms again and I'll show you that I will never let you go,
And my love I will conquer, I'll seize the day.
I'll never be someone without you.

This time I swear I'll be different, I've learnt from my mistakes.
I'll put you on a pedestal, above all else is right where you'll stay.

Fall in my arms again and I'll show you that I will never let you go,
And my love I will conquer, I'll seize the day.
I'll never be someone without you.

Without you,
Without you, my perfect girl.

Fall in my arms again and I'll show you that I will never let you go,
And my love I will conquer, I'll seize the day.
I'll never be someone without you.

Without you
(Fallen hard again, fallen hard again.)
Track Name: Wayside Story - Worth The Ride
Looking back, it's amazing to think about
where I started from with where I am now.
Once consumed by my insecurities.
Dictated by what others expected of me.

I kept striving for whatever seemed normal,
allowing life to fall right out of my control.
I could have yielded to a self-fulfilling prophecy
but thank god I fought for my autonomy.

I made the time and I dug up the effort,
committing myself to the ultimate adventure of
re-framing my past and pursuing my passions
setting myself free...

I take pride in how for I've come
giving myself up to ask the right questions.
Throwing it all into confrontation.
Leading the way to my aspirations.
When all is said and done, let me tell you,
it was worth the ride.

I know it's cliché, but really, hard work pays off
cuz now I'm living by my own agenda.
Finally chasing down my true desires
with the freedom and energy I fought to acquire and earned.

I'm done striving for whatever seems normal,
I'm taking life right back into my control.
Making time to write my own true story
just for me...

I can't erase or replace those parts
forever painful, but I'm ready to start
scripting a brighter scene, a new memoir.
Depicting a shining star from an old scar.
Though I've been torn apart before,
right now I feel untouchable.

I take pride in how for I've come
giving myself up to ask the right questions.
Throwing it all into confrontation.
Leading the way to my aspirations.
When all is said and done, let me tell you,
it was worth the ride.

I'm done
with everyone
trying to change me anymore.
I know that I've got to say
I don't need them anyway.

Track Name: Better Days - Headway
Always had the last word,
Put the final nail in the coffin.
I was never good enough,
And you loved to tell me time and time again.
But I've moved on now,
Found somebody who cares about me.
Doesn't tear me down, just builds me up,
Something you never did for me.

Sit on your pedestal and tower over me.

Cos you think I've fallen behind,
But I think I'll be alright.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

Been reflecting on life,
Finally found myself some clarity.
You were always in the wrong,
And you never really deserved me at all.
Now I'm making headway,
Growing up with a smile on my face.
Always felt the weight of the world,
But I'm finally feeling weightless again.

Cut me open and I'll bleed the same as you.

You think I've fallen behind,
But I think I'll be alright.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

Time flies now I'm happier,
I'm in love and it feels right.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

I was left,
A broken shell.
Now I'm rebuilt,
Head in the clouds.

You think I've fallen behind,
But I think I'll be alright.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

Time flies now I'm happier,
I'm in love and it feels right.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

And you think I've fallen behind,
But I think I'll be alright.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

Time flies now I'm happier,
I'm in love and it feels right.
Without you dictating my life,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.

I know I'll be just fine,
Oh I know I'll be just fine.
