Track Name: Forever Happy
I drove through the rain and stocked up on beer.
Our plates were kept full most the year.
We topped up our tins and settled in for the storm

Its a dash to my car and back at an empty hotel show
The bar maid pours me another extra strong Jacks and Coke
There’s all this new responsibility at my feet
I’m smoking too much weed and
Tomorrow Im voting for who I want to run my country!


There’s so much beauty in the moon
Enough to shine straight through the clouds
It been raining most of September
Its starting to get me down

Im dying for a new spring day
My finger tips always cold and wet
And I cant keep my feet warm,
The tile is colder than the concrete I was used to before

Think back to when I was a kid
I was never gonna live like this
I would never even speak two words to you
Now Im up here telling you about it
And people are listening to me
And if this is as good as it gets
Then I will be forever fucking happy
If this as good as it gets I'll be fine


I know that I can shout too much
But sometimes I cant relax
But we all just wanna be heard
Ive caused pain, and Ive been hurt

I have this very place to call my own
Its understating saying that I am full hope
Thinking maybe ill write a song tomorrow or maybe I will die alone...
Track Name: Learning To Walk
If you could only see this through my eyes, I'm talking attempted suicides and the fear of getting that phone call from your mother in the night.
You know I loved you once now I just don't want you to die
I seen the cuts on my 19th birthday and it made us both cry
My 20th came around and Raych put you in the back of a taxi
And you smoked all of my weed
Couldn't figure out why I was angry

When you said I wasn't doing enough, didn't think I could do anymore. I was walking dead at one point but it was more of a slow crawl

So now it's been a few quick weeks and I'm feeling pretty sweet, it's still hurts a bit sometimes when I need you to get me asleep
But life is going on and I get now what people say. Words like reason and fate maybe aren't just a cliché

If the last weekend had of come when we first said our goodbye
I don't think I would have needed to go back so many times
Or need to break up deep conversation and shit that needed to be said
With old inside jokes, laughs and smiles and a kisses on your forehead
During the hospital visits coz no one else even knew that you were there
I was only going as a friend and nothing more I swear

When you said I wasn't doing enough, didn't think I could do anymore. I was walking dead at one point but it was more of a slow crawl

I know you've got your demons and I guess I got a few
I hope your getting better and know that I'm not meant to save you
It was good being apart of a family that seemed to kind of work
Dad jokes at sit down dinners, Id give a little smirk
So I will see you somewhere down the line
Tell your mum and dad and brother and sister that I said hi


I’ve come to accept a life where I’m unaware of what’s next,
It’s a mystery to me, just like before we even met
Maybe Ill find a punk rock girl who can write me a song
Or one that knows she special and that she belongs
But for now I’m gonna find out just who the fuck I am
I don’t want to have to ask to go take acid with my friends
I’m genuinely happy most the time and I think I’ve kick my meds
I’m playing so many shows and its easier to get out of bed

When you said I wasn't doing enough, didn't think I could do more
So I hit the wall and told you mum had hid the keys
Yeah, when you said I wasn't doing enough. God, fuck, I didn't think that I could do more so I hit the wall and told you mum had hid the keys.
When you said I wasn't doing enough, didn't think I could do anymore. I was walking dead at one point but it was more of a slow crawl
When you said I wasn't doing enough, didn't think I could do more
So I hit the wall and told you mum had hid the keys
Track Name: Best Decisions
Im dreaming more and appreciating my friends, like Im in love again
I'll go to work hungover, say I'm young and I still can
Living on weekdays, nearly dying happy when Friday comes
Sharing my love now that its not only given to one
I got this down to a fine routine,
Coz I know someday I might miss this too

Im growing into these clothes that used to swim on me
Im talking the kind of talk that you used to talk to me
Im walking the walk of life, sware I always knew how, have the confidence to do now
Yeah Im growing into all these clothes that used to swim on me

And I don’t wanna look back
At the drugs that I didn’t take
Or the mistakes that I didn’t make
Ive mad a few bad calls, its all the same
All that I can say now
Is I really need a break

Im growing into these clothes that used to swim on me
Im talking the kind of talk that you used to talk to me
Im walking the walk of life, sware I always knew how, have the confidence to do now
Yeah Im growing into all these clothes that used to swim on me
Im wirting all the things down that me get up with a smile on my face
It’s the flickers of excitement that tell me that Im in a good place

I think its hope that brings the best decisions Ive ever made,
Deciding to go or deciding to stay
I think its hope that brings the best decisions I've ever made,
Please make my mind up for me someday

IIm growing into these clothes that used to swim on me
Im talking the kind of talk that you used to talk to me
Im walking the walk of life, sware I always knew how, have the confidence to do now
Yeah Im growing into all these clothes that used to swim on me
Im wirting all the things down that me get up with a smile on my face
It’s the flickers of excitement through the day that tell me that Im in a good place.
Track Name: Familiar
I think I kissed you on the cheek last night when I saw your scares it was a litte bit to familiar
Its funny how thinking back now that I hear myself sing this that I don’t remember
I wanna kiss you on your head when I hear you say things so familiar
And ask if you're clutching onto something with us or do you just have trouble acting normal when your nervous, too.

So I through my wallet down on the floor trying to find a sign of something to hope for
And the entrie contents fell out including the card that marked my next appointment.
I realised then that half of us are on something but Im not talking about recreation
Half of us to help us get by, the other half to sleep, oh its all just a little bit too familiar

If you say your silly and sad again and your waiting for the rain to end
or waiting on a better place and a better time
Well I just might kiss you, I know I shouldn't kiss you

So I through my wallet down on the floor trying to find a sign of something to hold on to.
Coz I knew come the morning came
That these conversations will never have happened
Everything will go back just the same...
