Track Name: Becoming Forgotten
Becoming forgotten
Is like dying slowly
My name was once something
But now it's just a joke

I'm watching it all unfold
With no will to change it
I'm watching it all go
And I don't blame it

You've heard from me once a year
Now it's been three
Another year will pass
And you'll forget me

I've lost all the love
The passion
The thrill to survive
Why swim in a sea of sharks
When all you're gonna do is die?

So forget me but make it fast
I'm tired of being asked
"What's happened to you?
I thought you'd make it last"

I wrote a song or two
To deal with the blues
I wrote twenty-five more
Just to deal with you

I've played show after show
I've weathered all them roads
I've slept floor after floor
But no one would know

So forget me but make it fast
I don't wanna be asked one more time
"Hey what happened to you?"
"Nothing, I'm doing fine."

But becoming forgotten
Is like dying slowly
Track Name: Moonshine
It's been a while since we last talked
I've been busy losing my mind
I've been drinking moonshine
And smoking the pain away
I haven't left the house
In a couple of days
And how have you been?

Seems like all is well for you
Sounds like the band is always doing good
And I know you're workin' hard like you should
I"ve always been so proud of you
You're a good kid

As for me
I started seeing someone new
You know, he treats me well
But he'll never be you
As for me
I found out I just can't move on
When my heart is lost
In an old song

So I will sing
Til you come

As for me
I started seeing someone new
Ya know, he treats me well
But he'll never be you
As for me
I found out I just can't move on
When my heart is lost
In a sad song
And my heart is lost
In all of your songs
Track Name: Death Of A Dream
There comes a time
When our dreams may die
But what do we do to ease the pain?
Do we find new love?
Do we make new dreams?
Do we search for years for anything
That makes us feel alive again

Dreams are meant for dreaming
So I'll just dream all day
I'll lie still
Never make them real
For the death of a dream
I just couldn't take

Well I knew it from the get go
I told everyone it just wasn't so
But I kept on singing to pass the time
This face wasn't made for magazines
And this voice has never been that clean
So I'll keep my dreams to sleeping

Dreams are meant for dreaming
So I'll just dream all day
I'll lie still
Never make them real
For the death of a dream
I just couldn't take
Track Name: Love Is
You wrote me notes filled with poetry
Your smiled beamed every time you locked eyes with me
And I know, I never treated you any good
I know, I never treated you any good

We walk the same streets
And drink at the same bars
I might catch a glimpse
You might smile from afar
But I'll never know what you're thinking
And you'll never know how I feel

It was my fault and we both knew it
Who could ever love a girl like me
You tried your best to prove it
That love is what you make it out to be

I asked for the world
And you gave it
I asked for more
'Cause I'm selfish
And I knew, you deserved better than me
I knew, you deserved better than this

And Oh, I am selfish
"I want it all," I would scream
"Isn't love enough?" you would ask me
"No love is not enough for me you see"

I was young, I didn't know
Went our separate ways to grow
Met a man that would show
That I could learn to be a better me

But Oh, I am selfish
"I want it all," I will scream
He'll do his best to prove it
That love is what you make it out to be
Track Name: Skeletons
If I could forgive you
Maybe I could forget
Just what we both went through
to make it all end

'Cause I want to go home
I want you in my arms
I want to feel whole
I want my heart to be calm
But I know it won't

Said things I don't mean
Did things I never said
Blamed you for everything
Even though I was bad

But I want to go home
Before the skeletons broke
When we used to hold toes
I just want to go home
But I know I won't

Cause I saw the way you looked at her
The way you used to look at me
I heard you laugh with her
The way you used to laugh with me
And I know what it means
When you don't call me just to see
How I'm doing, I've been better

And I want to go home
I just want to go home
Before the skeletons broke
Oh please take me home
Though I know you won't
Track Name: Sleep
Forgive me
For being gone for so long
I guess I could have called
But I felt that it'd be wrong if I told you
Of what I've done
'Cause with every new city
Comes a new love
Soon I found there was nothing to be 'fraid of
So I took out those hearts
Ripped them apart
Though at times it felt like I was the one dying
'Cause I can't tell if I've become heartless
Or if I've developed a shield around it
To protect me from what
I know I can't heal
What I know I've done to them
What I don't want to feel
'Cause this heart has been through
Some battles before
And I think it's too tired
To love
Anymore

So let's sleep, and sleep, and sleep
And move closer to me

So if you pull me near
I'll put my lips to your ear
And I'll whisper those things
That you long to hear
But if you wake alone
In that bed of my own
Don't question my actions
Or why I've disappeared

So let's sleep, and sleep, and sleep
And move closer to me
