Alive Inside

Written by Chey Halliwill & Katie Zuke

(Verse 1)

When Im with you, the stars create, stick figures, of us holding hands (mmhmm)

And when I see your face, my body feels like its melting, into an abyss (mmhmm)

When were talkin together, the air Im breathin, takes my breath away (uh-uhh)

And I inhale after we kiss, the room around us, fades away (mmm)

When you look at me my heart drops, and it makes me feel

Alive inside, Alive inside, Alive inside, Alive inside

(Chorus)

And our mouths become, encyclopedic robots

And our minds loose comprehension of time

Oh yeah, oh yeahhhhhh, oh yeah (x2)

(Bridge)

And I say, take me away, to the snowy covered woods

Oh yeahhh, hold me close, touch my body, baby (mmmhmm) (x2)

(Chorus)

And our mouths become, encyclopedic, robots

And our minds loose comprehension of time

Oh yeah, ayy, oh yeahhh. (x2)

 

 

 

Empty Cup

Written by Chey Halliwill and Barrett Rush Miller

(Verse 1)

When its good, its the best

When its bad, the worst

And aside from all the rest

I cant decide which one of them comes first

(Chorus)

And I dont have enough fingers, to count how many times Ive tried

And I dont have enough courage, so behind the music, is where Ill always hide

Its where Ill always hide

(Verse 2)

What goes down must come up

With my arms outstretched and my wide eyes shut

Or maybe I should just shut up

Cause Im still taking sips from my empty cup

(Chorus)

And I dont have enough fingers, to count how many times Ive tried

And I dont have enough courage, so behind the music, is where Ill always hide

Its where Ill always hide

(Verse 3)

Been in this tunnel so long

And I cannot see the light

I think I might have lost my glow somehow

And there is no end in sight

(Chorus)

And I dont have enough fingers, to count how many times Ive tried

And I dont have enough courage, so behind the music, is where Ill always hide

Its where Ill always hide

(Bridge)

Its where Ill always hide

(outro)

If I had one last dance before I got caught, a little more time is what I should have bought

If I had the chance, if I was given one shot, Id end it all without a second thought

Mmmmm, ooooohhhhh

 

 

 

Fingertips

Written by Chey Halliwill

(Verse 1)

Oh I met ya, just the other night, (yeah, ayy ayy ayy)

And already, you make me feel all crazy inside

Cause Im digging ya, Im feelin ya, everything you do to me

So please, just dont leave, and please just dont leave

(music break)

(Verse 2)

So would you hold my hand, and kiss my lips?

Oh I can feel the rush of blood through my fingertips

Cause Im digging yuh, and Im feelin yuh, everything that you do,

I want you, and you want me too

(Music break)

(Chorus)

Oh im gonna, gonna shout it out loud

Gonna yell it, just so you know Im proud

Just so you know, Im always long for you (x2)

Oh im gonna, gonna shout it out loud

Gonna yell it just so you know Im proud

Just so you know, Im always long for you (x2)

 

 

 

Footprints

Written by Chey Halliwill

(Guitar Intro)

(Verse 1)

You ever feel like, someone doesnt understand what your sayin?

But the words keep flowing out of your mouth like the waves are comin to shore

And your thoughts are your footprints in the sand, and the waves keep washing them away (x2)

Ooohhhhh, oooohhhhhh

(Music break)

(Chorus)

Dreaming of you, once again, when I do, I want you around

(Because youre in my heart)

So take my hand, Ill show you the way, I dont want you to be in the background

(Because I want you to stay)

(Bridge)

Because of you I can feel my heart (x2)

Deep down inside again (x2)

Because of you I can feel my heart (x2)

Deep down again (x2)

(Guitar Solo Outro)

 

 

 

Life

Written by Chey Halliwill & Barrett Rush Miller

(Verse 1)

What do you think about love?

Do you think its just some stupid game that we play so we cant get InTouch with ourselves?

What do you think about life?

Do you think it means something?

Or do you think we will be searching for meaning all our life?

I would like to know, mmhmm, I would like to know

(Chorus)

Ive learned to question things all my life

And now Im here just tryin to survive

cause Im doin this, on my own

And when I see things going to shit

I think to myself this could be fixed

with more music in my lungs

Oooohhhhhhh, oooooohhhhhhhhh

(Verse 2)

What do you think about Drugs?

Do you think they heal you?

Or do you think they make you drag your heals right in the mud

What do you think about hate?

Do you think it affects you now?

Or did it come way too late?

(Chorus)

Ive learned to question things all my life

And now Im here just tryin to survive

cause Im doin this, on my own

And when I see things going to shit

I think to myself this could be fixed

with more music, in my lungs

Oooohhhhhhh, oooooohhhhhhhhh

What do you think about hate?

Do you think it affects you now?

Or did it come way too late?

(Chorus)

Ive learned to question things all my life

And now Im here just tryin to survive

cause Im doin this, on my own

And when I see things going to shit

I think to myself this could be fixed

with more music, in my lungs

Oooohhhhhhh, oooooohhhhhhhhh
