Track Name: Should I
Should I be working or playing these strings?
Do they think that I can sing? Or am I wasting our time?
Mine because I’m growing, theirs ‘cause they’re all-knowing
At least that’s what their eyes suggest

But put to the test, all they know is to warn against
Loneliness - our biggest fear
And yet we’re still here, surrounded and all business
Searching for the places, tucked in our DNA as
Home, home

Can it be built? Can it be spilt from the vault of memories?
Or is it a place you face only once in your life?
Before you’re struck by that volt of reality
Will you let it be? Or will you challenge me?

To make this house a home
But this is no house at all
Just a building with four walls, with no phone installed
Lest nobody calls, you’re better safe than sorry after all
You’re better safe than sorry after all, after all, after all

Should I be earning or should I be learning that the best things in life, they come for free?
Should I be guarding my heart or disregarding mistakes that were not made by me?
Is the moral of your story that we’re better safe than sorry?
Is the moral of your story that we’re better safe than sorry?
Is the moral of your story that we’re better safe than sorry?
after all, after all
Is the moral of your story that we’re better safe than sorry after all?
Track Name: Free
You found the word on the tip of everybody’s tongues
You carried the weight of the world, of all the planets and the sun
You went to battle with all that we always ran from
And I wish you had won

If I could go back and fight there beside you
Live in your mind with the thoughts all colliding
We’d set your captives free
(We’d set your captives free)
If I could hold back the tides for a moment
Give you back the quiet that your mind had stolen
We’d set your captives free
(We’d set your captives free)

Set your captives free

You stuck to your guns and they stuck to you
Stayed on track with the path away from apathy
We ride the train, work to silence all pain
But you, you were always too brave
Born free but forever in chains

If I could go back and fight there beside you
Live in your mind with the thoughts all colliding
We’d set your captives free
(We’d set your captives free)
If I could hold back the tides for a moment
Give you back the quiet that your mind had stolen
We’d set your captives free
(We’d set your captives free)

Set your captives free

Free on the outside but captive in your mind (x4)

If I could go back and fight there beside you
Live in your mind with the thoughts all colliding
We’d set your captives free
(We’d set your captives free)
If I could hold back the tides for a moment
Give you back the quiet that your mind had stolen
We’d set your captives free
(We’d set your captives free)

Set your captives free
Track Name: If I Gambled
I know you probably have plans already
But if I gambled, I’d be betting
You wanna see me, see me tonight (mmmm)

I’m not sure how long you’ve been without her
But if I gambled, I’d be betting you were
Lonely and terrified

There’s a fine line between brave and stupid
Pretty sure I crossed it long before you did
Maybe there’s a lesson, maybe I’m just blind, oooh
You’re gonna take risks or play on the safe side
If you never stray, I promise you won’t find what you’re looking for
You’ve got to take a shot, you’ve got to take a shot
You’ve got to take a shot to score

I know you’re a man of ambition
But I can tell that you’ve been wishing
For something you think doesn’t exist
But you and I will always find

Whatever’s beyond the limits of their minds
There’s a fine line between brave and stupid
Pretty sure I crossed it long before you did
Maybe there’s a lesson, maybe I’m just blind, ooooh

You’re gonna take risks or play on the safe side
If you never stray, I promise you won’t find what you’re looking for
You’ve got to take a shot, you’ve got to take a shot
You’ve got to take a shot to score

I know you’ve taken chances bigger than me
Maybe I’m wrong, we won’t belong, but baby let’s see
Wouldn’t you wonder what if we had tried? What if you had tried?

There’s a fine line between brave and stupid
Pretty sure I crossed it long before you did
Maybe there’s a lesson, maybe I’m just blind, ooooh
You’re gonna take risks or play on the safe side

If you never stray, I promise you won’t find what you’re looking for
You’ve got to take a shot, you’ve got to take a shot
You’ve got to take a shot to score
You’ve got to take a shot to score
Track Name: The Feelz
I caught the feels and the feels were real
He’s been on my heels, looking for a heart to steal
I caught the feels… or did the feels catch me?

Miss independent was her own happy ending
And everywhere that she went, she went alone
But the drum that she marched to
Well one day it starts to be the beat to somebody else’s song

I caught the feels and the feels were real
He’s been on my heels, looking for a heart to steal
I caught the feels… or did the feels catch me?

I came just in time - you were giving up on a heart like mine
Going in blind, the last thing I thought I would find
Was one of my kind, but just in time

I caught the feels and the feels were real
He’s been on my heels, looking for a heart to steal
I caught the feels… or did the feels catch me?
Or did the feels catch me?
Or did the feels catch me?
Track Name: No Upgrades
It’s not that I don’t trust you, it’s not that loving you is hard
It’s not that I’m afraid of you breaking my heart
But everything that’s new, well soon it won’t be anymore
And I’ve got no more tricks for you if you get bored

I don’t think we’ll break but if we happen to find a crack
I’m doing all that it takes but I’m not taking it back
‘Cause love isn’t something you upgrade
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away

It’s nothing you’ve done, it’s nothing you’ve said
It’s nothing about us, just some thoughts in my head
‘Cause too many lovers are trading in what they’ve got
For something new they just discovered, but at just what cost?

I don’t think we’ll break but if we happen to find a crack
I’m doing all that it takes but I’m not taking it back
‘Cause love isn’t something you upgrade
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away

If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away (x4)

It’s not that I don’t trust you, it’s not that loving you is hard
It’s not that I’m afraid of you breaking my heart

I don’t think we’ll break but if we happen to find a crack
I’m doing all that it takes but I’m not taking it back
‘Cause love isn’t something you upgrade
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away
‘Cause love isn’t something you upgrade
Love isn’t something you replace
Love isn’t something you exchange
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away
‘Cause love isn’t something you upgrade
If it’s broken, then you fix it, you don’t just throw it away
