Track Name: Trying Was My Only Regret
And if I had to tell you one thing
I’d tell you that I just can’t find the time to be anywhere but here
And what took you so long?
(Do you even still remember?)
Last summer after college you said we’d be together
But it’s been so long, can you even still remember now?

And if I had to tell you one thing
I’d tell you that I don’t believe
(A single word, that slips out of your tongue)
And it doesn’t even matter ‘cos lies aren’t meant for anyone
Give me a second she said
And it will all be okay
For what it’s worth I’ve never been more sure (about anything)

And what took you so long?
(Do you even still remember?)
Last summer after college you said we’d be together
But it’s been so long, can you even still remember now?
Now you’re gone, you’re never coming back
(You know this better than I do)
I should’ve seen this coming
Now you’re gone, it’s now or never ‘cos
(You know this better than I do) /
I should have known
Do you want this to end?
Will I see you again?
Darling, please don’t pretend like you don’t even give a damn

What took you so long?
Do you even still remember last summer after college, you said we’d be together?
And I swear I thought you meant it, I did, I did
And what took you so long?
Do you even still remember last summer after college, you said we’d be together?
And I swear I thought you meant it, I did, I did
And what took you so long?
Do you even still remember?

Now you’re gone, you’re never coming back
(You know this better than I do)
I should’ve seen this coming
Now you’re gone, it’s now or never ‘cos
(You know this better than I do)
I should have known
Do you want this to end?
Will I see you again?
Darling, please don’t pretend like you don’t even give a damn
Track Name: Love, That's What They Call It These Days
Send you up, one minute at your door step
Shuffle up to a meeting with my tongue
Going over never seemed like a problem
Where we’re going, we’re going, we’re gone
I see the way that you’re looking at me
I could tell that everything came easy
From the way you’re trying to say
(From the way you’re trying to say)
We’ll go all the way

Oh it’s love (love)
Call it what you want it
Let’s go (go)
We’ re back at where we started
And I will never be this scared to say
Love is what they call it these days

Turn out the lights, we’re going in and out of
It’s our show, it’s our time and this is how we roll (oh)
And it’s the end of the world and it feels so good
And all I wanna know, is are you ready to go?
We’ll take it slow and show ‘em this is how we roll (oh oh oh oh oh)
Let me hear you say, oh oh oh oh

Oh it’s love (love)
Call it what you want it
Let’s go (go)
We’re back at where we started
And I will never be this scared to say
(Love is what they call it, love is what they call it)
Oh it’s love (love)
Call it what you want it
Let’s go (go)
We’re back at where we started
And I will never be this scared to say
Love is what they call it these days

Call it what you want, let’s go
We’re back to where we started
And if it’s love, that’s what you call it
I’ll never dare to say to say this
But I just think that we could make it
Back to where we started

We’re going all the way tonight
We’ll never make it out alive so grab my hand
You can call it what you want it ‘cos love is what they call it
We’re going all the way tonight
We’ll never make it out alive, so grab my hand
You can call it what you want it ‘cos love

Oh it’s love (love)
Call it what you want it
Let’s go (go)
We’re back at where we started
And I will never be this scared to say
(I will never be this scared to say)
Oh it’s love (love)
Call it what you want it
Let’s go (go)
We’re back at where we started
And I will never be this scared to say
Love is what they call it these days
Track Name: Hope, From the Gallows
I have everything to be ashamed of
A break from what we believe
It’s not impossible
Don’t let them tell you that it’s out of my league
Yeah, we have everything to last forever
More than what we could ever dream
So make believe
You’re everything to me
We’re gonna turn this right back

From where we once were, we could have gone so far
Our dreams were real bizarre
Come take the deck with me
We’re gonna turn this right back, right back around

Quit pretending
(Pick yourself up)
Don’t let this get to me
(From the gallows)
Don’t let this get away
(Pick yourself up from the gallows)
Let’s soldier on

Quit pretending
(Pick yourself up)
Don’t let this get to me
(From the gallows)
Don’t let this get away
(Pick yourself up from the gallows)
Let’s soldier on

Losing sleep for second chances
We don’t need another ‘cos
This ain’t the season for giving in
Let’s turn this
Let’s turn this around
Let’s turn this around
Let’s turn this around

Quit pretending
(Pick yourself up)
Don’t let this get to me
(From the gallows)
Don’t let this get away
(Pick yourself up from the gallows)
Let’s soldier on
Soldier on
Another life lost
Track Name: I Do, I Don't feat. Siti Zahidah
Slow down, this isn’t what you’re expecting to hear
We are two of a kind and we’ve got all year
To take this road that appears
Pack our bags, get out of here

‘Cos I’m in love with you, with you
I’m in love with you, with you

Slow down, this isn’t what you’re expecting to hear
We have different agendas and it’s unclear
But I know what is real and what is wrong
And I can’t let you take the wheel

I am not in love, with you
I am not in love with you, with you

We made a promise and I swear I kept it
So what is stopping you now?
Know that I’m scared to death
I don’t wanna lose you
I’m scared I’ll let you down
Scared I’ll let you down

‘Cos I’m in love with you, with you
I am not in love with you, with you
And I’ll be waiting for you to come back home
Into my arms I will keep you safe, so please don’t go

Can I change your mind?
(I’ll watch you go)
‘Cos your heart’s telling mine
(And I want you to know)
To leave this all behind
No I can’t, but I’ll try
Track Name: Hush, We're Taking Over
I'll stop pretending like this isn't affecting me from
Being who I'm supposed to be
And it sickens me to know that you're still the one I think about when
Things don't get easy

Could you make this any clearer?
(Get my two feet off the ground)
Take me some place we both love
Could you make this any clearer?
(Get my two feet off the ground)
To spend eternity

(Just stay)
Right where you are
In the rearview of my heart
Let’s take the wheel somewhere
(Somewhere) far away from here
Could you make this any clearer?
(Get my two feet off the ground)
Take me some place we both love
Could you make this any clearer?
To spend eternity

Hush, stay, don't go
Let's take this place over
Hush, stay, don't go
We’ll take this place over

We're taking over
Take this place over
(The weight of the world)
It's getting colder, don't leave me hanging
'Cos I'm sick of these formalities, formalities
(So tell me can you take the weight of the world)
It's getting colder, don't leave me hanging
'Cos I'm sick of these formalities, formalities

Whoa oh
