Track Name: I'm Not Ready
There's something in the air,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready
There's something I've been waiting for,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready,
Ooh, aah

There's something there, and I can't deny as much,
but I haven't been exactly fair to you,
I don't think you'd care to see the other sides of me
so I don't think I can let you in with the way that I'm feeling

There's something in the air,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready
There's something I've been waiting for,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready,
Ooh, aah

Without a care, that's me pretending to be somebody new,
Somebody who could let go of the old me,
marauding around, fighting just to be
and acting like I know my own identity

There's something in the air,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready
There's something I've been waiting for,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready,
Ooh, aah

Turning up late for our date,
I don't think I'm ever gonna change,
It was fun but I gotta run
so don't waste your time on me
Don't waste your time on me

There's something in the air,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready, no,
There's something I've been waiting for,
but I'm not ready, no, I'm not ready,
Ooh, aah
Track Name: Numb
These last few days I haven't felt a thing,
It's like I'm totally dead inside.
I made an effort to loosen up all of my blame,
Now it's left me with nothing at all.
'Cause you've left me with nothing at all,
Nothing at all.

La la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la-

Last night I read something online,
It said if you haven't lived a half of your life
Then chances are the best is yet to come;
Best friend, best meal, even favourite song.
Man, I hope that they're right,
'Cause since you I been losing my fight,

'Cause you gave me something, you gave me something worth fighting for,
Yeah you gave me something, you gave me something worth fighting for,
and I gave up something, I gave up something worth fighting for,
When you gave up something, you gave up something worth fighting for.

La la la la la la la,
La la la la la la,

Even when I felt down I felt you.
But now, it's like there's nothing at all in me.
If I can't trust myself then I got no-one to trust,
Well for some strange reason self-sabotage is a must,

So please give me something, please give me something worth fighting for,
Yeah please give me something, please give me something worth fighting for,
'Cause I gave up something, I gave up something worth fighting for,
When you gave up something, you gave up something worth fighting for.

La la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la.
Track Name: Insane
I don't mind if you wanna let things slide,
I don't know if we should let things go,
I'm not sure if we're better off alone, I don't know.
I can't say if we're better off this way,
I'm not sure, when we fight what are we fighting for?

I don't know if I can keep putting one foot in front of the other,
I'm not sure if I'm cut out for making it out of this one ok,
I don't know how to take you out of my brain
'Cause baby I'm insane for you, I'm insane.
I don't know how to want to keep you out of the frame,
Well baby I'm insane,
I'm insane for you, and you're insane for me too.

Keep me warm, keep me in top form, and take me legs,
Carry me from here to bed,
I don't think I can love someone when I do not love myself.
Take these pills, and swallow them to hide the pain of you,
And after this I think I might be through,
My therapy is the pain of losing you.

I don't think I can keep putting one foot in front of the other,
I'm not sure if I'm cut out for making it out of this one ok,
I don't know how to take you out of my brain
'Cause baby I'm insane for you,
Baby I'm insane.
I don't know how to want to keep you out of the frame,
Well baby I'm insane,
I'm insane for you and you're insane for me too.

I was so unkind, and you the perfect find but you didn't mind,
It must be wrong for me to say it in a song but not to you,
But you must think we're through, well not to me,
I do not let things be, I am not free.

I don't think I can keep putting one foot in front of the other,
I'm really not sure that I'm cut out for making it out of this one ok,
I don't know how to take you out of the frame,
'Cause baby I'm insane for you, baby I'm insane.
I don't know how to want to keep you out of the frame,
I'm insane for you, and you're insane for me too.

I don't want to move on from you so I'll keep you fresh in my mind,
I've always been the stubborn kind,
I don't want to move on from you and I don't think I could,
When baby we're so beautifully, tragically misunderstood.

If I'm insane for you, will you be insane for me too?
You be insane for me, and I'll be insane for you too.
Track Name: Somber
In the darkest of days you will find me
Hollowed out like a tree, hiding from me,
From the voices in my head that remind me
I'm alone, you're alone, we're all alone.

Take my hand, let's run in between the branches
Of the woods where our souls can find peace,
I don't think you know how it feels to not feel anything but pain in your soul.

So reach out and find a home, find a home,
To bury your guilt, and all your pain, and your remorse,
But hold onto all the anger that you feel inside
And tell them it's all their fault, It's all their fault,
Honey, it's not your fault, it's not your fault.

I might not ever write on your wall
But I still cry for you sometimes you know,
I don't often, it's a strange and unsettling sensation,
I don't need to remind myself of how I feel.

So I wish you luck on the other side,
I wish you well on the other side,
Let's hope that that world is a less cruel place,
Let's hope that we all get to feel the same ways.

There's a whole lot of bones in our closets,
There's a whole lot of bones in our underwear drawers,
There's a whole lot of bones in our closets,
And we hide them well,
We hide them well.
And you hid them well,
You hid them well.
