Track Name: Summer Heat
Sweating in this summer heat, I don't know what to do 
Trying to find the words to say for someone I never knew 
But you bleed, you bleed the same as I do 

I'm scraping with my fingernails, I'm trying to pick a lock 
Staring at this diamond ring is fucking with my luck 
But I love, I love the way we never talk 

And I take, I take it with a smile 
I'm getting far too used to these goodbyes 
And I say, I'm sick of being on your side 
I'm falling through your fingers, I keep dreaming of your lies 

Go on and say a shallow word, I'll say one back to you 
Don't you talk like without me you've never felt so good 
Cause I see, I see right through that too 

Every time I answer I could say what's on my mind 
I could kick and scream about every dream and look you in the eyes 
But I take, I take it with a smile 
I'm getting far too used to these goodbyes 
And I say, I'm sick of being on your side 
I'm falling through your fingers, I keep dreaming of your lies 

Don't you feel it, don't you notice, don't you know this isn't right? 
I can hear you when you speak but I can't see you in the light 
Every time I answer I could say what's on my mind 
I could kick and scream about every dream and look you in the eyes 
But you bleed, you bleed just like I do 

And I take, I take it with a smile 
I'm getting far too used to these goodbyes 
And I say, I'm sick of being on your side 
I'm falling through your fingers, I keep dreaming of your lies
Track Name: Let You Know
Did I tremble? Did I shake? 
Well I want to, but it just won't take 
When I say I'm used to this, I don't know what that means 
I'm not broken, I'm not better, I'm forever in between 
If I ever stumble I can never let it go 
And if I learn to live with it I guess 
I'll let you know 

Did I stutter? Could it wait? 
You just can't seem to give or take 
And if you're just a mirror, oh, then what have I become? 
I'm falling like a meteor, I'm burning in the sun 
If I change for just a moment I'll be quick to tell you so 
And if I care to speak to you again 
I'll let you know 

I could speak in poetry 
Like you used to speak to me 
Maybe I'm just chasing a vision or a ghost 
Cause ghosts stay the same but you're different more than most
I've got 'You used to's, the raven's got 'Nevermore's 
One day when I wake up I guess 
I'll let you know
Track Name: I've Been Better
Tossing, turning, waking dreams 
Cause it's far too warm to sleep 
When I wake up with a summer cold 
And I don't know what to think 

Cause you look different than before 
In the crown you've always worn 
In the same old voice you scream a little less and never more 
You can say all that you like 
But I won't change and I won't mind 
When you leave just don't take your time 

Write your letters, count your measures 
Put it up in neon lights 
I've been better, it's now or never 
But I don't need to know you're mine 
Write your letters, count your measures 
Say you love him more than life 
I've been better, it's now or never 
But I don't need to know you're mine 

Drinking one more than I planned 
Cause I'm far too drunk to stand 
All this talk of him you never told 
Did he miss you in the end? 

Am I different at the sight 
In the crown you never liked? 
I can't bring myself to answer when you're fading in the light 
I can say all that I like 
But you won't change and you won't mind 
When you leave please don't take your time 

Write your letters, count your measures 
Put it up in neon lights 
I've been better, it's now or never 
But I don't need to know you're mine 
Write your letters, count your measures 
Say you love him more than life 
I've been better, it's now or never 
But I don't need to know you're mine
