Track Name: Sixes & Sevens
I broke the chains when I saw you.
I took the blame enough for two.
I broke the chains when I saw you.
I took the blame enough for two.

With cloak and dagger, you made the knife feel new.
With all of your anger, you put salt in my wounds.

I broke the chains when I saw you.
I took the blame enough for two.
Track Name: Storyteller
I will never go to heaven. I am broke and I am broken.
Everybody/everyone is for sale, if you can afford 'em.
If I'm winning, I am fucked. I'm a loser with beginner's luck.
I am alone and I am afraid. I'm the wreck. You couldn't look away.

I'll stop waiting, I was impatient with you.
Maybe I'm broken. I hope I didn't show it with you.
I'm a storyteller.

My dreams won't change, but my confidence will sway.
You're the thrill of the hunt. Your teeth were sharper than your tongue.

I'll stop waiting, I was impatient with you.
Maybe I'm broken. I hope I didn't show it with you.
I'm a storyteller.

My dreams won't change. My confidence will sway. My dreams won't change.
Track Name: Elvis
I'd drive a cool car. I'd get a cool haircut.
Kiss all the girls I know. I'd date Marilyn Monroe.

Have me some Hollywood fame, making Motown records.
I'd ride that motorcade right through Dallas, Texas.

Sing & dance, you know we can.
That was all they ever had.

If you could be real, if you could be anybody else, who would you be?
I would be Elvis singing in Memphis, Tennessee.
Or John Lennon, living in England, a little bit famous.
Frank Sinatra, James Dean, anybody but me.

I heard we walked on the moon. Everybody was saying.
I'd rather walk with you, while the band keeps playing.

I wish I was Elvis Presley.
I'd be the king of rock and roll.
And if I was Elvis Presley, I'd surely take you home.
I'd surely take you home.
Track Name: Young Habits
Living in a dream world, built for two.
I just want to spend my life with you.
Please know that these words I speak are true.
I just want to spend my life with you.

You love and you hate me, but you're always right.
Sometimes, it gets lost in the night.

Old habits will break, and replace with young.
Trace all the lines that I find in love.
Symmetry perfected in these shapes.
Nothing else matters in this place.

One thing remains unchanged.
This fire you inspired.
I thought that I was the one.
I saw the bullet but I didn't see the gun.
Track Name: Fear
I once had a fear. It evolved.
Once thought I lost it, thought it dissolved.
I can't ignore this, it won't go away.
This sense of purpose, it's the only way.

I once had a fear. I willed it gone.
Once thought I lost you in the run-off.
I saw potential in all the little things.
I make my fate now. It's the only way.

I saw myself where I could be.
Someone with a story to tell.
Stop thinking of what could be, and go and make it yourself.

I once had a fear and it ripped me apart.
Once thought I lost all the truth in my heart.
I saw defiance in all the little things.
So tired of looking for another way.
