Highest regards for you There's much I can’t undo Still I turned and changed my shape You offered me your grace These parted doors, I glance ahead Present a life, I can defend For once I have more than my words I’m moving on, I’m moving forward Son, go and lift up your hands And you should pray you get there I see your strength and you want it so badly Here is my love to withstand All that is cruel and unfair I see your eyes and you want it that badly Higher, higher I know I can climb a little higher I feel your prowess shines on me now Alluring chances, I take hold Presenting gifts for all at home For once I have more than my words I’m on my way, I’m moving forward Son, go and lift up your hands And you should pray you get there I see your strength and you want it so badly Here is my love to withstand All that is cruel and unfair I see your eyes and you want it that badly Now that your blessing’s in my reach I strive for remarkable peaks Fruitless patterns cease to exist A lacking past I now dismiss We’ve got it made, love on display Look what we’ve done and can parade After this chase and harsh demands I’ve got your trust, it's in my hands

Her coveted physique And features so unique I swear you’ll never forget her Her enchanting speech It always gets to me I love the way that she’s making me feel She’s so exuberant Joyful and humorous Can I keep up with her spirits I feel I’m falling fast My fondness unabashed She sure has left an impression on me God bless her, she’s the girl I do treasure She makes me feel so complete Expression, shower her in affection So I will state this loudly Oh my gosh, she is so pretty I can’t believe that she is with me Oh my gosh, she is so pretty She’s the loveliest I’ve ever seen I’m nothing wonderful I feel indrawn and dull How can I be more compelling No need to overthink She’s promised me one thing I am fine just the way that I came It’s her comforting charm And character so warm It all just heightens her beauty So anxious and we’re young Could this really be love Our connection is hard to conceal God bless her, she’s the girl I do treasure She makes me feel so complete Expression, shower her in affection So I will state this loudly Oh my gosh, she is so pretty I can’t believe that she is with me Oh my gosh, she is so pretty She’s the loveliest I’ve ever seen Oh my gosh, she is so pretty Stunning looks and her timeless appeal Oh my gosh, she is so pretty I love the way that she’s making me feel So many nights I've spent Wishing I was her She’s got confidence to kill She’s imperfect she’ll admit But she’s the closest thing I have to an angel Wholly blemished but she’s pristine to me Oh my gosh, she is so pretty I can’t believe that she is with me Oh my gosh, she is so pretty She’s the loveliest I’ve ever seen Oh my gosh, she is so pretty Stunning looks and her timeless appeal Oh my gosh, she is so pretty I love the way that she’s making me feel

Holding your body was said to be simple But intricate poses led to stunted impulse There’s growing desires through limbs interweaving It’s strained and it’s graceless, but somehow still pleasing We swayed to the rhythm but it seemed so restless And some how you still end up leaving me breathless I’m acting out daydreams, they’re all I have left here We talk of escaping but words are insincere My senses swell Wanting more (Senses swell, wanting more) Let’s embrace Come here give it all you’ve got now Go ‘head and talk, whisper in my ear it’s all I hear Every breathe, seems like every breathe you take it completes me The rooms heating up, every drip of sweat on me shows your longing I never thought, never thought I’d be with you, you dreamy boy Time is here fleeting Go faster repeating Those sayings and motions From short-lived devotion With no apprehension I breathe in this tension Through friction and phrases And dimly lit gazes Our youthful impatience And infatuation Are now manifested in Visceral expression With night at its closing And morning sun glowing I say in a quiet voice Thank you dreamy boy

That’s not my style I won’t wear it that way Gotta keep doing my thing No matter what you say All on my own I can make this work to sharpen me They don’t stand a chance When I’m lookin' like the centerpiece As I walk in the room Everyone looks the same You tell me I stand out and I should have changed But the fits that you showed me Boy I just couldn’t stand I’m on my own tonight That’s not my style I won’t wear it that way Gotta keep doing my thing No matter what you say Nowadays all these trends are the same Even the misfits to fit in a frame There’s no need to conform It’s all been done before I might let my look shine through So as I walk in the room I might steal this damn show You hold your head down Think we’ve been here before But the outfits they’re wearing None are striking to me I feel like I’m a star That’s not my style I won’t wear it that way Gotta keep doing my thing No matter what you say

I can’t think straight when I’m anxious It seems like it just keeps getting louder in here Second thoughts and trepidation Rush through me when my moment is coming near I can’t even speak I’m nervous as hell I could fall to my knees But you sure couldn’t tell I just wanna leave But now I gotta sing I gotta get up on stage And there's no time to think Heart racing and all I can barely breathe Keep shaking but I Can’t look so weak Can you hold the conversation I hear people cheer from amongst the crowd I was never seen as famous But here I am on this pedestal now You can do it, I know you got what it takes Heart racing is senseless, what a mistake But all this self talk seems so pointless When I’m still just a nervous mess I can’t even speak I’m nervous as hell I might tremble in fear But I should break out my shell I just wanna leave But now I must perform I gotta take one more breathe It’s all that I can afford Heart racing and all I can barely breathe Keep shaking but I Can’t look so weak Chest pounding and all I can barely see Losing vision but I I am almost free All this worry and all this pain I’m walking out like a model It’s my moment on stage Heart racer can’t catch me I swerve the insanity Grab the mic, inhale, for a second of vanity Heart racer can’t catch me Well, heart racer can’t catch me Heart racer can’t catch me Well, heart racer can’t catch me

Stuck in my room With nothing left to say I’ve been unkind, insensitive But I must live with it Gone are the days Conversing came naturally The price to pay for using Someone else’s empathy The disappointment lingers through her Misery from boys into her Promised her I’d be considerate Now look at me, I’m not that different It’s selfish regret A feeling so tough to face Am I looking to change or Rid myself of all my guilt Our loving trust is now in ruins I beg for honest resolution My heart still races when I see her I’d do anything to please her I wanna call her back I wanna let her know That I’m looking to change And I can’t let it go I wanna call her back But I should leave her be She was the girl of my dreams now I’m stuck with half apologies But if I called her back Would it make her feel As if I never learned How to let her heal And if I called her back Could it maybe seem That I’ll never move on, I’m just searching for sympathy I want your happiness I do girl I know I can’t mend Past romances But maybe we can both start From here now There’s still many sparks When I’m near you A racing heart I pace back and forth Wanting her familiar warmth A restless mind of expectations Begin to dial with hesitation I wanna call her back I wanna let her know That I’m looking to change And I can’t let it go I wanna call her back But I should leave her be She was the girl of my dreams now I’m stuck with half apologies But if I called her back Would it make her feel As if I never learned How to let her heal And if I called her back Could it maybe seem That I’ll never move on, I’m just searching for sympathy

about

Many have said that getting out of your comfort zone is the best way to grow and develop as a person, and last year has certainly shown that to me. I think if I’d made it this far with an EP two years ago I would’ve dropped it or been tempted to revise it. This time it’s going out there. It’s a bit weird. It’s certainly imperfect. But I pushed aside my worries, I focused, and I got it done.
