Lyrics

“Brandie” written by Brandon Smith

1. Am I the right one? Do you know it’s true? Can you please me? Can I lie to you? We’ll just lie here, listen to Astral Weeks, can you deal with, this album on repeat?

Br. I see it in your eyes 

2. ‘cause in the dark it’s hard to see anything and I wanna just feel you breathe, and your pale skin, in the dark is where we’ll always be / is this your first kiss? can you forget your past? can i tell you? i hope this won’t be our last

Ch. Tonight, you know I can’t sleep without you by my side / Can we try to make this right? Tonight, I know that you can’t see, someday you’ll be with me / and you’ll have all you’ll ever need

Lyrics

“Stolen” written by Brandon Smith

 1. You told me your mother always told you not to trust a man with blue eyes, I’m here to tell you that she’s right / I can be trusted as far as I can be thrown, I said to you that night and you told me that you knew

 Pre-chorus: And if my heart is still attached, would you call it broken? If I feel my lungs collapse, will you still give me one less reason to feel my insides rotting out from this never-ending dream that won’t come true? 

 Ch. Give me one last kiss, I promise you’ll regret it, like I regret everyone I’ve ever met / ‘Cause I’ve lost what you have stolen and you still are my last regret, you have my heart in 7 pieces in a box under your bed

2. I’ll be the best friend you’ll ever lose and the brightest eyes you’ll wake up to and you never believed the words I said / I look into those deep blue eyes, feels like a dream I’ve had before where they were just another lie

3. Did you think that this was over, I’m just getting started in this fucked-up head of mine / And if I told you that I loved you, would you still punch me in the face, tell me that I’m mistaken, and I don’t feel a goddamn thing?

Lyrics

"Catchy" written by Brandon Smith 

1. There’s a catchy chorus in my head / A beautiful dove inside my bed / I lose my common sense, my sense of touch is left / Left-handed compliments, are the only ones I give / I’d give my right hand, to be in love again 

Ch. I’ll catch you next July, right now my tongue is tied / You’re the only one I want, so hard to satisfy / Imagine you and I, 10,000 years go by / and you’re still the one I’ll always stand by

2. If I could explain myself to you / Would I know just what to do? / Regress to 17, 22 years all meant nothing / I forgot how to speak my mind once your lips fell into mine / Is that the right way? I fell in love this time

Lyrics

“Sight” written by Brandon Smith

(Intro) Such a sight for sore eyes and a bleeding sunrise, tonight I will fight, so read me my last rites and I, I won’t give it up this time

1. Now we’re here right on time and I feel my lungs burn, my last cigarette makes my stomach turn and I’m alright so here are my last words:

Ch. And I know why I’m lost / And I feel like I’m giving up

2. Give me a gun, black pen, and a spiral notebook, my words fade away as you give me one last look and I am writing one last note to you / I don’t deserve to express my endless sadness, and I know you’d pretend to try to fix this, but I see through all your bullshit

Br. I know I don’t deserve this

Lyrics

“Hide The Bottle” written by Brandon Smith

1. You find friendship in a bottle / You find solace in a can / Your friends are all stale in the back of the fridge and now you’re left with the taste of betrayal and headache to match / Maybe one day when you’re lonely you’ll hang out with your stash

Ch. ‘Cause it’s fun when you’re 17 / Not so fun when you’re 23 and now you’re / Burned out on life / Hide the bottle tonight (From yourself / From everyone else)

2. Can we hear about your tour in Vietnam? / I wanna hear about all the women that “I’ve took too long / to sleep with” so you came and made the save / thank you, God I wish all my friends were underage
