Track Name: First To Forget
I hear the people around me talking
They’re asking where you are
And every step that I take without you
I wonder if I’ve gone too far
They say you’re looking to go your own way
Seems like news to me (could it be?)
We’re in a town full of rumours baby
So stop the presses and let me see
How all the times that you said you loved me
They might have been a lie
You never want to give answers to me
You just ask me why
And you say you’ll never go as the tears begin to flow
If you’ve got a hand to show I haven’t seen it yet
You say, “Baby, close your eyes” as you wait for our demise
But if I’m the last to know, I’ll be the first to forget
They tell me I should have seen it coming
It never crossed my mind (I was blind)
‘Cause waiting up for the truth will leave you
Sleeping through the warning signs
But now that it’s all done we can’t undo
We can’t unsee
I know that even the dust is damaged
don’t let it settle on me

Don’t let us sleep through the warning signs
Track Name: Second Spin
There was a time I believed you
But worlds can change in the blink of an eye
Gone are the days I could save you
‘Cause loving a liar is like living a lie
Fighting for the present, living in the past
While you’re out sleeping with the future for as long as it will last
Tell me then, would you break my heart again
If I gave you a second spin?
It’s hard to forget all the bad days
When they start to last for weeks at a time
So finally we went our own ways
But we promised each other another goodbye

While I’m standing in the shadows
While I’m waiting in the dark
If I offered some forgiveness
Would you give this another start?
I always believed we could mend it
Even when hope seemed the hardest to find
So how did I leave empty handed
Waiting for you at the back of the line
