Track Name: Cancer Days
Time is all I really have now
Both a blessing and a curse
I don’t know which one’s worse

Watching you die
Showed me how to live
I learned to do those things
I thought I already did

Time is all I really have now
Both a blessing and a curse
I don’t know which one’s worse

I hide my feelings
Deep down in my sleep
They’re locked away
But never really out of reach

I tried to slow time down
You found a way to make it stop
Yeah you made it stop
I tried to slow time down
You found a way to make it stop
Yeah you made it stop

Times I wonder
If you were just a dream
Memories never really what they seem

Time is all I really have now
Both a blessing and a curse
I don’t know which one’s worse

Watching you die
Showed me how to live
I learned to do those things
I thought I already did

I tried to slow time down
You found a way to make it stop
Yeah you made it stop
I tried to slow time down
You found a way to make it stop
Yeah you made it stop
Track Name: Barely Holding On
I talk about love and you look away
Seems like it’s happening more and more each day
You came in my life just like the wind
I turn around, and you’re gone again

You don’t know I’m barely holding on
No you don’t know I’m barely holding on
‘Cause you don’t see me every time you’re gone
So you don’t know I’m barely holding on

I look in your eyes and they seem to say
Maybe some other time but not today
You’ve given me that look before
A feeling that’s hard to ignore

You don’t know I’m barely holding on
No you don’t know I’m barely holding on
‘Cause you don’t see me every time you’re gone
So you don’t know I’m barely holding on

Is my heart the only one that sees it?
I thought you felt the same way too?
I’m on a thread now, can’t you feel it?
Barely holding on to you

I talk about love and you look away
Seems like it’s happening more and more each day
You came in my life just like the wind
I turn around, and you’re gone again

You don’t know I’m barely holding on
No you don’t know I’m barely holding on
‘Cause you don’t see me every time you’re gone
So you don’t know I’m barely holding on
Track Name: You Can't Love Me
You can’t love me
When you’re putting me down
No you can’t love me
When you’re running around

Well I tried and tried and tried my best
But that don’t matter enough I guess
Cause you don’t love me
Cause you can’t love me

You go on and push me away
Then wonder why I never stay
It goes on day after day
But now I’m learning a brand new way

You don’t need anybody
Sitting at home all alone and crying
Been gone for a couple of days
Is it true love or another phase?

You can’t love me
When you’re putting me down
No you can’t love me
When you’re running around

Well I tried and tried and tried my best
But that don’t matter enough I guess
Cause you don’t love me
Cause you can’t love me

You never look me in the eye
Talk all about it but you never try
I know I don’t mean a thing
Cause love to you is another fling

When I see you it’s always the same
Never want to talk, want to play the game
Getting tired of uncertainty
I’m you’re little fool and that’s all I’ll be

You go on and push me away
Then wonder why I never stay
It goes on day after day
But now I’m learning a brand new way

You don’t need anyone
Why don’t you just leave me alone
Is it true that you’re sick at home?
Then why don’t you ever answer your phone?
You can’t love me
When you’re putting me down
No you can’t love me
When you’re running around

Well I tried and tried and tried my best
But that don’t matter enough I guess
Cause you don’t love me
Cause you can’t love me
Track Name: Eyes Like Magnets
Just because I see her
Doesn’t mean I don’t see you
I’m here in the middle
I don’t know which way to move

How can you fall in love?
When you’re already in love
How can you fall in love?
When you’re already in love

Saying things now to protect my heart
A little more armor than I had at the start
You stuck a dagger straight in my heart
Now I’m returning the favor

Oh what a fool I’ve been
I couldn’t see love coming my way
You never really loved me
I should have know it all along

How can you fall in love?
When you’re already in love
How can you fall in love?
When you’re already in love

Just because I see her
Doesn’t mean I don’t see you
I’m here in the middle
I don’t know which way to move

How can you fall in love?
When you’re already in love
How can you fall in love?
When you’re already in love
