Track Name: Holiday
On a holiday
With a broken band
When you’re alone on guitar and the drums at the bar and the bass stole the van
Well the spotlights off
Is this thing on
Sweat is pouring like beer and they all know you’re but they can tell that you’re gone

Well you won’t get too far with acoustic guitar trying to make a stand
To a wasted crowd who’s crying out loud you know you can’t get through

On a holiday
Packing up your things
That one girl at the bar you throught was singing your song was just another dream
The door slams goodnight
Now you’re no one again
And you look for some sign all the way till its time to turn off the light

Well you won’t get too far with acoustic guitar strumming in the dark
To a shallow crowd who echos the sound you know you can’t get through

On a Holiday
On a Holiday

Na na na na

Well you won’t get too far with acoustic guitar trying to make a stand
To a wasted crowd who’s crying out loud you know you can’t get through
Well you won’t get too far with acoustic guitar strumming in the dark
To a shallow crowd who echos the sound you know you can’t get through

Track Name: When The Light Turns Blue
So it starts lighting candles in your pocket
So the flames can feel the air under your nose
You’re a clown outside the window a recluse inside your mind
What do you do when the light turns blue

So it starts when all parties leave the room
When all the magic promised fades away too soon
All that attention that feeds you leave you hungry and misused
What do you do when the light turns blue

So you could say you’d do it all again
So you could say you’ve lost and found your only friend
What do you do when the light turns blue

I spent my money on fancy meals and limousines
I flew up women just to toss and turn between
I played the fool just for the laugh
I danced the heart out of the man
That’s all before the light turns blue

You couldn’t stay within a dream you got caught up stuck between
What do you do when the light turns blue

So you could say you’d do it all again
So you could say you’ve lost and found your only friend
What can you do when the light turns blue
What can you do when the light turns blue
What can you do when the light turns blue
Track Name: Spinning Round
Do you know what it’s like to be stuck
Do you know what it’s like deep down in a hole
You wake up too late
You fall out too soon
You think too much
in a crowded room

Do you know what it’s like to feel heat
Do you know what it’s like to be cold as ice
You’re a runaway
In your own backyard
If you stay too late
You might not come back

Right now I just can’t get through
I could be talking to you
Right now I just can’t get through
Meanwhile I’m just here
Spinning round

Do you know what it’s like to fall down
Do you know what it’s like to burn yourself to the ground
A reverse effect keeps you off the tracks
If you stay too late
You might not come back

Right now I just can’t get through
I could be talking to you
Right now I just can’t get through
Meanwhile I’m just here
Spinning round

Spinning round and round and sleeping through the days
Spinning round and round and sleeping through the days
through the days
through the days

Right now I just can’t get through
I could be talking to you
Right now I just can’t get through
Meanwhile I’m just here
Spinning round
Meanwhile I’m just here
Meanwhile I’m just here
Track Name: When It Rains It Pours
I know that I am hung up to dry. But I'm still drunk and I am cold. I love you but you want much more. I'll think for hour but then walk out the door. When it rains it pours

I've told lies and cheated all my life. Told some for good and some to make things right. But I need you, I need you to understand. I'll walk for miles but won't make it back.
When the light turns black

I'm a mess that won't clean up. You're a tin can I'm paper cup.
This ship has sailed yeah we're fresh out of luck. In the wake of a sweet memory.

I wanna tell you how i really feel. But I don't know if what I mean is real. But I taunt you just like i taunt myself
Ring in the fire and we can't get out When the flames take flight
I am the winner of a losing game. I loved to love but now I'm lost in vain. Just do me please forget my name. I can't go on if things remain the same. What I've lost is me.
