Track Name: Time Machine
I was in your brother's room listening to Pink Floyd
You were sitting on the floor blowing out your hair
I would do anything to get you just to laugh at me
You would do anything pretending not to care

I watched how all the boys used to fall in love with you
I lost a lot of time wishing I was them
Do you remember when you showed me how to hold your hand?
If only we could find our old selves again

Run away with me
In my Time Machine
And we can go back one last time before it's gone for good

I rememer how it hurt trying to hold on to you
When everyone around said to let you go
I thought that moving on, was what I was supposed to do
It's just that I was much to young to know

Run away with me
In my Time Machine
And we can go back one last time before it's gone for good

Somewhere along the line we knew had to grow up
We could never slow the time, no matter how we tried
And when I see you now I'm filled with things I wished I'd said
And maybe this time around I won't be denied

Run away with me
In my Time Machine
And we can go back one last time before it's gone for good
Track Name: Aries Falling
Is this what you want?
Do you need some time?
You know that I will do whatever

I’ll give you want you want
To try and change your mind
So we can build a life together

And now you’re asking me to leave
And I can barely breathe

Can you hear
the sound
of Aries falling?

Can you hear
the sound
of Aries falling?

How can you be so cold?
Why did you turn away?
I swear I never saw this was coming

Don’t take away my sons
They’ll never understand
Please explain I wasn’t running

And now you’re asking me to leave
And I can barely breathe

Can you hear
the sound
of Aries falling?

Can you hear
the sound
of Aries falling?
Track Name: Carefree, Arizona
It might take some time, but I'll get there yet
I can feel it coming over me
I made my peace with regret
And learned how to sell a sincere apology

I'm making my way out to Carefree, Arizona
Where the skies are always clear and the past don't own ya
And even though it breaks my heart
To know we're gonna be apart
I'm making my way out to Carefree, Arizona
Without you

Ain't no use in talking my mind's made up
If I stay here I'm sure to suffocate
It's not like me to just give up
This empty crown I hereby abdicate
Track Name: When You're Right
Another hangover Sunday morning
looks like I did it again
But I can't blame the bartender
When I forgot to tell him when

I passed out on the D train
and never did make it home
I'm sorry if I made you worry
I was scared that you weren't alone

When you're right, you're right
can I please come home tonight?
When you're right, you're right
Amen

I know I have some problems
I'm having trouble keeping under control
But I can't even remember a time
when I felt completely whole

Excuses there are plenty
but they don't hide the truth
And I can't stop from running away
then running on back to you
Track Name: One By One
Everybody needs to find their way
to the setting sun
one by one, one by one

Everybody needs to face the truth
for what they've done
one by one, one by one

Everybody’s got a different story
Like the colors of an autumn glory
Make your peace with the things you can't outrun

Everybody needs to find their way
to the setting sun
one by one, one by one

Everybody wants to burn it down
When it gets routine
one by one, one by one

Everybody tries to wash it off
But they can’t get clean
one by one, one by one

Where do you think it is that you're steering to?
When you don't control the wheel
When nothing’s is all you got
and nothing’s all you’ll feel

Everybody wants a place to go
when their time has come
one by one, one by one

Everybody has to walk away
from deeds undone
one by one, one by one

Everybody’s got a different story
like the colors of an autumn glory
Make your peace with the things you can't outrun

Everybody needs to find their way
to the setting sun
one by one, one by one
