Track Name: Ipso Facto
Ipso Facto

How’d you even find a way out of my past?
Thoughts came from forgotten photographs.
Memories memories aren’t what they seem when the slates clean.
Coz I see you, for who you are, now someone else has a hold of my heart.

You can’t can’t handle the truth,
so you lie It’s what you do, lie it’s what you do
coz I never want, I never want, wanted you.
And your just no good you know its true,
so you lie its what you do, lie its what you do
coz I never want, I never want,
wanted you.

I gave you what you want,
never gave me what I need.
Tried to take away the best parts of me.
Couldn’t stand me at my worst,
so why’d you think you deserve my best?
Stop trying to resurrect,
what’s been laid to rest.

You can’t can’t handle the truth,
so you lie It’s what you do, lie it’s what you do
coz I never want, I never want, wanted you.
And your just no good you know its true,
so you lie its what you do, lie its what you do
coz I never want, I never want,
wanted you.

You didn’t want it this way,
you wished I could stay.
But what a waste,
of me.

Full stop went my pen and paper,
you fight back hard,
I’ll never see you later.
Good-bye to you,
bye to the old me too.
Track Name: Better Days
Better Days

When did my faith, in humanity fade away?
Well I found out the truth, about every little thing they put you through.
When in my mind, did I start to see the worlds unkind?
If you’re a good guy, if you’re a good girl,
Aint no heaven baby, this life's hell.

I’ve been good but now I’m bad,
my heart of fool’s gold has turned to black,
I’ve been okay I’ve had better days,
but like Frankie boy says,
now I’m doing it my way

If you treat me mean, babe you keep me keen.
What happened to romance?
When no one ever needed a second chance.
Coz I can’t be, abusive it’s just not me,
If that makes me boring, I guess I’m boring baby.

When Silence is golden, your words stay unspoken.
I bet he wears the trousers, the socks the underwear.
Going to hell in a hand basket, you’re already there.

I’ve been good but now I’m bad,
my heart of fool’s gold has turned to black,
I’ve been okay I’ve had better days,
but like Frankie boy says,
now I’m doing it my way
Track Name: Take The Pressure
Take The Pressure

We both know I, lost it that time.
Don’t don’t deny it, anymore, anymore.
Paper hearts are so, easy to tear.
when rock and scissors, beats my game I can’t compare.

I hate that I drove you away, it’s the first time,
I’ve felt like myself in days

Add up time we spent, broken hearts can beat again,
coz we knew that this would happen.
Add up nights you placed, your heart in someone who walked away.
Yeah I am nervous, but I’m ready to take the pressure.

We both know you, did what you had to do.
Don’t try to fight it, like before, like before.
I know there’s plenty more, fish in the sea,
she’s the one I chose, I dove in too deep.

I hate that I drove you away, it’s the first time,
I’ve felt like myself in days

Add up time we spent, broken hearts can beat again,
coz we knew that this would happen.
Add up nights you placed, your heart in someone who walked away.
Yeah I am nervous, but I’m ready to take the pressure.

Things will work out in the end, I hope I see you again.
Never relied on fate, but at times like these it couldn’t hurt to wait.
I’m like a house not a home,The doors open still I’m alone.
Though I’m with everyone I know, feels like this crowd has lost its show
Track Name: Bad Habits
I Do try my best to make you proud, and I know that I just sit around,
Playing games and making sounds.
When I try to make something of myself,
I get too concerned about the weather, and how it's affecting my health.

I hate what I’ve become, I sit on the couch like my legs are both numb.
I ignore the alarm clock when it rings, coz I won't wake up for anything.

Maybe maybe I'll never change, coz though I say it things stay the same,but you've got to admit, Sometimes it's just hard, I'm clinging onto bad habits.

Exercising less and drinking more, I'm a few Pints away from sinking into an early British grave and what's it for?

Cheap thrills and a good time, not caring bout the future coz the presents mine, at least I don't smoke cigarettes, It's the only nail not in the coffin that's left.

Maybe maybe I'll never change, coz though I say it things stay the same,but you've got to admit, Sometimes it's just hard, I'm clinging onto bad habits.
Track Name: I Have Tried
I Have Tried

I remember it well, was there till the end.
You were more than family, it was like you were my friend.
My problems came when this started out, and I thought to myself,
anything could happen now.

For those who love me, I don’t know why you trust me,
I don’t even trust myself.
My lies are just white and small, everyone sees through them all,
and through me.

But I have tried so hard, but you had to go so far.

Ten years from tomorrow, who knows if I’ll be the one pushing a pram?
Coz right now I don’t know who I am.
Time moves on you just get further away, all that’s left are memories,
and your picture in a frame.

For those who love me, I don’t know why you trust me,
I don’t even trust myself.
My lies are just white and small, everyone sees through them all,
and through me.

For those who hate me I guess I see what they see.
There’s some things I’d like to change.
But like the pot calls the kettle black,
his flaws are the same exact But at least

But I have tried so hard, but you had to go so far.

I cant even call and say I've missed you,
I’m not the person we thought I might be,
Is that alright with you? I wonder if you'd be proud to see.
Clinging on to memories, they’re the only things that set me free.
Then I’m reminded, you left a piece of you in me.
Track Name: Grew Up Okay (feat. Arthur Walwin)
Where do I begin? You’re crushing everything,
I believed in yesterday, yesterday.
Your not who I thought I knew, changed how I see you too,
When I used to think you were someone I could look up to.

You don’t know how it feels to be, Know how it feels to be let down.
Coz you still do it to me now.
Whilst I wish the best for you, do you feel the same way too.
They Say love thy neighbour you moved blocks away,
Grew up without you, I still turned out okay.

If everything must end, you wrote it why can’t you send,
Me a message, what are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?
If I was you and you were me
Well I’d never treat my blood so badly
When you never call do you care one little bit,
For me anymore but that’s something you won’t admit.

(Chorus)
You can’t know how it feels to be
Know how it feels to be let down.
Or you wouldn’t do it to me now.
I still wish the best for you,
Hope you feel the same way too.
They Say love thy neighbour
You stayed blocks away,
Grew up without you,
But I still turned out okay.


(Outro)
All I wanted was to play games with you in the park,
For you tell me it’s okay when times were getting hard.
All I wanted was for you to be my best friend,
Not let me down and then you wont see me for weeks again
All I wanted was for you to be my hero,
Someone to pick me up whenever I was feeling low,
Al I wanted was for you to teach me certain things,
That I should know and prepare me for what tomorrow brings,
All I wanted was for you to give me advice,
Somebody to look up to and to help me mould my life,
All I wanted was for you to give two shits,
But all I really wanted that was you,
And that was it.
