Track Name: Tuxedo Lazertag
Writing verses from the road
Something always feels like home
I'll scrawl you down on the blue line
You're the part of me that's locked tightly inside
It's the only thing that feels right

CHORUS
When you look at me, I hope you see
Someone who's always got your back
We built up an army, our friends became family
I'll stand by your side, time and time again

I've got everything I need
We reach for the stars
When we look to the sky, that's all we see
Keep telling yourself you're on top
Keep telling yourself you're on top
And within due time we'll be unstoppable

Give me a reason to fight, and we'll take it
Show me the walls that confine, and we'll break them
Give us the means to succeed, and we'll make it
We're moving up, start moving out of the way
Track Name: Dream Big
'Dream big, kid', someone said
Three words I'll never forget
They made me who I am
And I haven't looked back since
Got my picks, I'm good to go
Found the words to really hit home
My friends and I, we're on the road
We'll see the dinosaurs at the next show

After everything, the shit we've been through
We always come right back
After all the curves that life throws our way
I still fall back on the words you said, "Dream big"

People grow and people change
Times in their lives fade away
Memories come and memories leave
Til all that's left is the dreams that make me
Take a step back and realize
You're not the only ones with them kept inside
We let it out to the ears we found
And we watched as the music took back the town

After countless nights of singing crowds
We know this is who we are
Track Name: Before We Get Older
[Zach]
I'm just a lost
Romantic at your window
Asking for you to come out
The starry night is faded
So I contemplated
A beautiful view of this city
Only with you

We'll live like the
movies that we've only dreamed of
Is it true? Do they all know
That we're young but we're in love
Take my hand, I'll sweep you
Off your feet, and into my arms
Take pictures to remember
Before we get older, before we get older

[Joey]
I'll walk toward the front porch
And hope that you follow
Maybe it's fate, but it's just so hard to swallow
Let's take back town tonight
Those beautiful brown eyes are always on my mind

We'll live like the
movies that we've only dreamed of
Is it true? Do they all know
That we're young but we're in love
Take my hand, I'll sweep you
Off your feet, and into my arms
Take pictures to remember
Before we get older, before we get older

We're fading in and out of streetlights
And your name catches my breath
Fading in and out of streetlights
Track Name: Rest of My Life (feat. Ben Hammond)
This afternoon I woke up with
A sudden urge to say something
To take back the damage done
To help me rewrite all the wrongs
I ask myself, 'What did I say?'
'What did I do to provoke this change?'
I know I'm not the only one
So here's my call to arms

I'm at a loss of what to do
When I see you in a crowded room
My heart and mind leave me confused
I need a hit, adrenaline
Wake me up to kick it in
I know I'm not the only one

I'm still waiting
For the right time to cut you out
I'm second guessing
Everything I've known about myself
And I can tell there are pages out there
Waiting to be filled
With the rest of my life

I wish I had the strength to stand
On my own two feet and ask
For you to try, to try your best
To stay away from all my friends
I've got a minute, more than one
To talk about where we went wrong
I know I'm not the only one
So here's my call to arms

Even if this is our goodbye
I'll say to myself, "Well, at least we tried"
Finding hope in something lost before we knew
I can't believe what we were hiding
From each other until it seemed ready
And I still can't forgive you
Track Name: Who Needs Antidepressants When You Have Friends Like These?
And so I wait for the weekend.
Forget it all with my best friends.
And I guess being this happy is my best defense.

We were never exactly what I expected to be.
I made a few bad moves when we were fragile already.
One day you're with me, and the next you're history.
Some things about you, I will never understand.

And so I wait for the weekend.
Forget it all with my best friends.
And I guess being this happy is my best defense.

CHORUS
Forget everything you knew about me.
It wasn't worth it, but we took the chance.
That's the upside to this situation.
The best teacher is experience.

You try to catch me talking shit behind your back
This may come as a surprise to you,
but I'm really not like that
Go ahead and judge me, you're going nowhere fast
All that I wanted is found in what I have.

[Joey] All that I wanted is found in what I have.
