Track Name: Chinese Whispers
Chinese Whispers

Keep your friends close
But your enemies closer
I don't know who you think you are but
You're no friend of mine
And keep in mind
It was you who drew the line

What goes around comes back around

Chinese whispers
Deceit and lies
Told with such bitterness and spite
I won't play your game
I'll tell you straight
If I were you I'd give up and walk away

What goes around comes back around

And the stories that you tell us
Did you think that we'd believe them?
After all the things we've been through
We can see right through you
Shallow people
Are always looking
For so much more
This is the calm before the storm
And everyone knows when it rains it pours

Break the circle
x3

What goes around comes back around


And the stories that you tell us
Did you think that we'd believe them?
After all the things we've been through
We can see right through you
Shallow people
Are always looking
For so much more
This is the calm before the storm
And everyone knows when it rains it pours
Track Name: Fake Smiles and False Pretences
Fake Smiles and False Pretences

Shallow eyes
Narrow mind
You're so blind to everything around you

Before you make your opinions loud and clear
I better set you straight on all those things you hear
Don't be shy if you've got something to say
Come closer
Say it to my face

I may no be perfect but at least
I don't pretend to be someone I'm not
And who are you to judge me with all your
Fake smiles and false pretences

Until you've walked a day in my shoes
You will never understand
All these little pieces that make up me
There's a reason I am who I am

I may no be perfect but at least
I don't pretend to be someone I'm not
And who are you to judge me with all your
Fake smiles and false pretences

Broken Promises
And empty threats
Take a look in the mirror before you speak
Just a shattered reflection
With insecurities
I imagine you won't like what you see

Shallow eyes
Narrow mind
You're so blind to everything around you
x2

I may no be perfect but at least
I don't pretend to be someone I'm not
And who are you to judge me with all your
Fake smiles and false pretences

Broken Promises
And empty threats
Take a look in the mirror before you speak
Just a shattered reflection
With insecurities
I imagine you won't like what you see
Track Name: Reach
Reach

Distant memories of a girl I used to be
She was timid, shy and never smiling
And although there are parts of her I wish had remained
In time I've learnt I've had to change
See I no longer let you walk all over me
I've grown strong where I once was weak

I won't let you push me down
I've come too far to turn back now
You're the one that needs to see
I won't let you get the best of me

You'll never understand how you made me feel
Or how long it took these scars to heal
You'll never know how long it took to reach
That small girl lost deep inside of me

You truly underestimated me
I won't back down I won't be beat
The rules of this game have changed
We're now playing this my way

Who the fuck do you think you are
To take away my lucky star
You messed with the wrong girl
Now watch me break apart your world

I won't let you push me down
I've come to far to turn back now
You're the one that needs to see
I won't let you get the best of me

You'll never understand how you made me feel
Or how long it took these scars to heal
You'll never know how long it took to reach
That small girl lost deep inside of me

You won't get the best of me

You'll never understand how you made me feel
Or how long it took these scars to heal
You'll never know how long it took to reach
That small girl lost deep inside of me

You'll never undo the pain you put me through
Or the tears I cried because of you
But I'm glad my life turned out this way
'Cause its made me who I am today
Track Name: Slipping Away
Slipping Away

I see my world reflected in my eyes
It burns like fire
I fall to my knees before my disguise
I feel so hollow

Who have I become?
I'm someone I don't know

Something inside me
Is slipping away
I don't know how much more I can take
Something inside me
Is slipping away
Slipping away

An empty shell of who I was
Just a shadow
I've lost so much of myself
I feel so hollow

Who have I become?
I'm someone I don't know

Something inside me
Is slipping away
I don't know how much more I can take
Something inside me
Is slipping away
Slipping away

Empty eyes look upon the nothingness
That surrounds me
Numb hands don't feel your touch
That used to burn me
My heart once warm is now still and cold
It ceases beating
All my senses
Fade

Something inside me
Is slipping away
I don't know how much more I can take
Something inside me
Is slipping away
Slipping away

Something inside me
Is slipping away
I don't know how much more I can take
Something inside me
Is slipping away
Slipping away
Track Name: Lost
Lost

I'm holding my breath
I'm closing my eyes
I've never been one for religion
But I'm praying you'll be alright
I'm crossing my fingers
Ever so tight
I've never wished harder
For anything in my life

And I cry
'Cause something is lost
I'm your eyes
And I try
But something in your heart
Just died

Such a helpless feeling knowing no matter how hard you try
You can't say or do anything to make it all alright

And I cry
'Cause something is lost
In your eyes
And I try
But something in your heart
Just died

If I could you know I'd take away your pain
I just want you to be yourself again

And I cry
'Cause something is lost
In your eyes
And I try
But something in your heart
Just died

If I could you know I'd take away your pain
I just want you to be yourself again

Oh, oh
Time will heal your heart
Oh, oh
Time will heal your heart
