Track Name: Hello Love, Goodbye
you don't know me
but it's okay cuz I'm not from around this town at all
took a train here from the Eastside
with the girl who sat in the seat right next to me
and she stared out the window like it was looking back at her
and I relate
cuz I stare out the window wondering what is the matter with the world
but it's alright
we stayed up all night
the train tracks sound like a lullaby
and then I woke up with a note stuck to my thigh
it said
hello love, goodbye goodbye
hello love, goodbye goodbye

but we are always together
they won't break us but they will try
hello love but just for now we have to say goodbye
but we are always together
they won't break us but they will try
hello love but just for now we have to say goodbye

next stop
i met a mountain top
it told me that people forgot that their walls would fall
and i'm like
"yeah it's just a whole lot going on down there. And I really wanna stay but I've got a train that I need to go catch, so I guess I'll head down"
and on my way
I hear him say to me that we must nudge this world awake
I'm like "How? Working on myself is a full time job, no time to be pointing out nothin' else"
he smiled, "See you in a little while, go on, be on your way"
I said, "Hello love, goodbye goodbye. And thanks."
Hello love, goodbye goodbye

but we are always together
they won't break us but they will try
hello love but just for now we have to say goodbye
but we are always together
they won't break us but they will try
hello love but just for now we have to say goodbye

you don't know me but it's okay
I'm not from around this town at all
took a train here
what a train ride

hello love
hello love
hello love, goodbye goodbye
Track Name: How I Really Feel
how much do you know about pain
i'm looking for somebody anybody that relates
i'm stuck in the same room
don't even know the day
but the nighttime's here
so i'm definitely awake
couple friends called tell em yeah i'm doing great
really great
the truth is just to much to even say
i'm used to being alone but now i'm in a whole new plane
and some people get offended when i stay quiet
you don't even know what's going on at the house though
teachers saying that i'm not bright
i'm like how so?
sorry if i didn't pay attention sir but God spoke
fake shhh and i do not click
see the mouse broke

how i really feel, feel
how i really feel
how i really feel uh oh

pause for a second
had to stop and take time to say life is a blessing
doesn't mean that it won't be hard
i'm dealing with these scars that won't fade
it's ok there's no way that i'm gonna fold
two goals
keep cool
stay bright
the devil never left so i stay right
and stay calm while they fight
light and dark are both needed never take sides
oh hey hi
i'm sam i'm a great guy
dealing with a lot you cannot stay here
k bye
and i don't mean to seem distant
i just haven't been the same since i lost my little sister
it's how i really feel

how i really feel, feel
how i really feel
how i really feel uh oh
(oh no i did it again i let you in on how i really feel)
how i really feel, feel
how i really feel
how i really feel uh oh
(oh no i did it again)

Track Name: Dear Light
yeah
i lay my soul down on the kick
i lay my soul down on the kick

alright look
i'm feeling real shook
but i know it's just another dark chapter of the book
ok
flow's hotter than your propane
i know pain
still hungry like a no name
just wait until we start up the show thing
Light Team is the fuel for the whole thing
i'm driftin'
still up in my own lane
and bump this
it's fricken doper than cocaine
i'm playin
but i'm not though really
i'm just talkin' to myself
sounds silly but i'm saying hello

i've seen too much by now to be helped
i'm gone
i'm a find my way

i've been up in this fight since a young boy
k cool
gotta go
i used to feel a lot of hope
now i'm leanin' on the world's ropes
i'm taking a lot of blows
touch down
stop and go
rock a show
get off stage and it's back to the hospital
oh i'm starting to flirt with impossible
and we can take off houston
watch a rocket go fly
so if you hear me up here
we're family i swear there's really nothin left to talk about
na
the sun's up
haven't slept yet
i'm goin all in
thats the best bet
i walk a dark road
the light blessed it
no need to talk
find the play button, press it
and i know that i see myself clearer than ever i promise you that
fact


i feel like i'm talking to myself
i've seen too much by now to be helped
i'm gone
i'm a find my way
dear light could you shine my way
say
i feel like i'm talking to myself
i've seen too much by now to be helped
i'm gone
i'm a find my way
dear light
Track Name: Walls
you can fall
or you can rise up above the walls
put up to keep you down
away from everything that's so real to you
dear world..
i don't feel near to you
never have though
i'm in the back of the mass with my hat low
they try to break you down
they're glad to
but my faith won't shake
i'm a natural
but still bashful
and woah oh
i let em all know
you will not find me any other place but home
and i take that with me
it'll change up when my pace does
let me take you down a fall path
with autumn leaves
say hello to the fallen trees
oh i can feel it in the air now
cold nights but i don't know fear no more

and i keep thinking it's you
but i'm the only one here
and soon i'm going away
to find you way out there
and all alone on my own
i float up to a cloud
just to find out you caught a raindrop all the way down

oh said i came here with a
message that i must somehow give ya
before the dark one gets to me
before the dark one gets to me
woah

(enter hospital)
Track Name: The Struggle
sorry that i never wrote you
it's like there's almost too much to say
like how you doin
i'm okay
but we're moving cuz the old house flooded
and we ended up losing everything
i'm not talkin the house
a week later my sister decided she would check out
uh oh
i'm good though
still feel the love that we had
and that love is forever never will go
faith is real now
think i need to heal now
i've been called to this road
i can hear it now
i lost a lot of friends cuz i kept quiet
but we all bleed red
just a family in denial
i know

i'll be okay
cuz i've seen these days before
i've got a lot of faith
and i need these days
i'm a make my way back home
say hello to the struggle
hello to the struggle i found
yeah
but don't take me away cuz i need to work through it all

don't take
don't take
don't take me away

sorry that i never wrote you
it's like there's almost too much to say
and if you're hearing this now
then i'm gone already to a new place to stay
oh i just needed to see that this life doesn't ever end
even when we stop our breathing
i understand that this road gets lonely
but i only get to know you
when i truly get to know me
and Abba always showed me
(i'm just doing what you told me)
and damn Hannah really was my best homie
but we always are together
no matter the day or the weather
i'm a keep following the road i know

i'll be okay
cuz i've seen these days before
i've got a lot of faith
and i need these days
i'm a make my way back home
say hello to the struggle
hello to the struggle i found
yeah
but don't take me away cuz i need to work through it all

the struggle
Track Name: One More Minute
give me one more minute
had to tell you I'm not finished
'cause your love is all I've ever known
and I came here to find you
I got lost so many times
you make it worth it though
'cause with you I am home

so I made it all the way here
fought through pain
I worked through fear
and I didn't even know if I'd find you at all
so where should I begin
I lost touch with all my friends
when I found out I'm making em out to be something that they're not
so I left
turned around
followed roads on back to town
just to end up in the station that you left me at
I hoped you'd follow me away
so I came back here just to say

give me one more minute
had to tell you I'm not finished
'cause your love is all I've ever known
and I came here to find you
I got lost so many times
you make it worth it though
'cause with you I am home

when I woke up you'd gone away
but on my walk you will always stay
ay
I guess I'll be dippin out
I walked this sole road too long to be trippin now
so it's goodbye here
but you'll live on in all of these tears
and when I turned around to go back
I thought you should know that
you're an angel
it does not matter if they know or not
'cause it's true
when I think beautiful
I think you
and so I thank you for all that you do
and uh.. I hoped you'd follow me away
but now I'm thinking it's okay that you didn't
give me one more minute
