1. The Critic

So what if what I say
so what if what I do
Isn't what you wanted too
That doesn't justify you
Tearing me down
With all that you say
It seems you only live
To doubt my every move
Pretending like you always knew
But I don't care if you don't
Like what you see
’Cause I'll do as I please

So leave me alone
I'm sick of your games
When will you learn
We're not the same
Leave me alone
Get out of my face
When will you learn
We're not the same

No matter where I am
No matter where I go
You never can leave me alone
You might as well just tell me
You're wasting your time
’Cause you're going to fail
And now I finally know
And now I finally see
The reason why you couldn't be
The person that you dreamed of
You gave it all up
Well I won't do the same

So leave me alone
I'm sick of your games
When will you learn
We're not the same
Leave me alone
Get out of my face
When will you learn
We're not the same
We're not the same, no

Leave me alone
I need more than room to grow
’Cause we're not the same
You treat my life like it's a game

So leave me alone
I'm sick of your games
When will you learn
We're not the same
Leave me alone
Get out of my face
When will you learn
We're not the same
We're not the same
We're not the same

2. Never Saw It Coming

All of the things
That happened just so I can be here
Who's pulling the strings?
D o I have company?
'Cause I'd like to think
That I'm in control of my own destiny
All of the signs begin to point the other way

And who would have known
That I'd be standing right here next to you
'Cause I never saw it coming
And who would have known
That I'd get control of things I do
All the could have should haves
Never would have happened anyway

Maybe it's me
or maybe there's something more to it
I believe what I see
cause seeing is believing
and I'd like to think
that I'm in control of when and how I go
what if I stepped outside
and I got blown away

And who would have known
That I'd be standing right here next to you
'Cause I never saw it coming
And who would have known
That I'd get control of things I do
All the could have should haves
Never would have happened to me
All the could have should haves
Never would have happened anyway

Happened anyway
happened anyway

I never saw it coming
I never saw it coming
(happened anyway)
I never saw it coming
I never saw it coming
All the could have should haves
Never would have happened to me
All the could have should haves
Never would have happened

Who would have known
That I'd be standing right here next to you
'Cause I never saw it coming
And who would have known
That I'd get control of things I do
All the could have should haves
Never would have happened me
And now I know that everything
That's going on around me
Is meant to be
They're gonna happen anyway

3. Open Your Eyes

You want what you deserve
But it's right in front of you
You want something better
Then any other
You don't even bother
To figure what it is
That you think you deserve
You'll find it all one day
But not this way

Open your eyes
Your heart will follow
Open your eyes
See what you've been missing
Open your eyes
And find the answer

I can't take anymore
Have you ever asked yourself
What am I looking for?
You're indecisive
You are just another
Caught up in all of this
Plastic glamorous world
You'll never see
Who you could be

Open your eyes
Your heart will follow
Open your eyes
See what you've been missing
Open your eyes
And find the answer

Your world is waiting, anticipating,
But your time is fading,
If you never open your eyes

If only you could see,
That there is something you can do,
To make this better

Open your eyes
Your heart will follow
Open your eyes
See what you've been missing
Open your eyes
And find the answer

You're world is waiting, anticipating,
But your time is fading,
If you never open your eyes

4. Running Away (Acoustic)

I don't want you to give it all up
And leave your own life collecting dust
And I don't want you to feel sorry for me
You never gave us a chance to be
And I don't need you to be by my side
To tell me that everything's alright
I just wanted you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

'Cause I did enough to show you that I
Was willing to give and sacrifice
And I was the one who was lifting you up
When you thought your life had had enough
And when I get close, you turn away
There's nothing that I can do or say
So now I need you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind
Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
Is it a waste of time?

Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind
Oh oh

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
(What is it I've got to say)
So why are you running away?
(To make you admit you're afraid)
Why are you running away?

5. Up And Gone (Acoustic)

Staring at the white above
Can't tell if I'm alive or am I dead
Or is it in my head?
Where'd I go wrong?

Staring at the white above
One day I closed my eyes and here I am
A cold, unhappy man
I've come to realize the life I have I hate
The pulse I need is slowly fading
Until I've lost it all
I've been waiting for an inspiration
For a chance I never got to take
Before it's much too late
(Where'd I go wrong?)

Where's the boy that used to run?
Could it be he's up and gone away?
He seems so far away
And all the things I could have done
Could it be they've up and gone away?
They seem so far away

It feels as if the boy in me
Has left and been replaced with a cheap and bitter
Imposter of myself
I must find the one that used to be
Approach him slow, don't be afraid to say
"Can he come out and play?"
(Where'd I go wrong?)

Where's the boy that used to run?
Could it be he's up and gone away?
He seems so far away
And all the things I could have done
Could it be they've up and gone away?
They seem so far away

Staring at the sky above
I've found a chance I'm finally going to take
I've learned from my mistakes
(Where'd I go wrong?)

Where's the boy that used to run?
Could it be he's up and gone away?
He seems so far away
(Where'd I go wrong?)
And all the things I could have done
Could it be they've up and gone away?
They seem so far away
(Where'd I go wrong?)

6. Crawling In The Dark (Acoustic)

I will dedicate
And sacrifice my every
Thing for just a second's worth
Of how my story's ending
And I wish I could know
If the directions that I take
And all the choices that I make
Will end up all for nothing

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is it something more
Than what I've been handed
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

Help me carry on.
Assure me it's ok to
Use my heart and not my eyes
To navigate the darkness
Will the ending be
Ever coming suddenly
Will I ever get to see
the ending to my story

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is it something more
Than what I've been handed
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

So when and how will I know

How much further do I have to go
And how much longer 'til I finally know
'Cause I'm looking and I just can't see what's in front of me
In front of me

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is it something more
Than what I've been handed
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

7. Ready For You (Acoustic)

Go on
Make me feel it's useless
When in fact it's you that need to have me near
So now
Keep me at safe distance
And with a little persistence I'll make it crystal clear

I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you
So don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you

Now you seem to be content with
A one sided friendship with you I've got to chase
Slow down so I can smell the roses
But the road you chose is crooked and unpaved
(My tires are spinning but to no avail)

That I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you
Don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you

That I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you
Don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you

I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you

Don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you
