Track Name: Fake It Till You Make It
I'm a walkin', talkin' fake it till you make it
Got my fingers and I'm crossin' them till they're breakin'
And for so long it was how I wanted to be seen
But from now on it's how I'm gonna be
And I'm runnin' from the sun and hope it's not settin'
I'm a gamblin' man, but you know I'm not bettin'
On anything, anything just yet

I'm tryin' to find my way through (through)
But you know it's not like someone comes along and tells you
The right thing to do
So I'll take my bewilderment
And just keep on runnin' straight ahead

It'll take all I got, pour another shot of this cheap whiskey
My vision is blurred, but you know I can still see
Anything and everything that you mean

I'm tryin' to find my way through (through)
But you know it's not like someone comes along and tells you
The right thing to do
So I'll take my bewilderment
And just keep on runnin' straight ahead

And I'll fight on, cause it's right on to keep your damn head up
When the world beats on you and you know it won't let up
And for so long it was how I wanted to be seen
But from now on it's how I'm gonna be
And I'm runnin' to the sun and hope it's still risin'
I'm a dreamer at heart, but I'm just fantasizin'
About everything, everything we could be

I'm just fantasizin', and I'm just fantasizin'
And I'm just fantasizin' about everything we could be
Track Name: Night Time Rain
And I may fall asleep
Listening to this night time rain
Wash this tired summer off these streets
With all the restraint it can feign

It reminds me of years ago
Lost friends and the innocence of youth
I feel the same when everything
Around me's changed in ways i can't undo

And I am scared to death
That I'm wasting my life
Wasting my breath
And I think that the worst thing
Is never knowing
What all this means

Late nights spent wide awake
The glow of my cell phone compels
You can see in these overtaxed eyes
I haven't been sleeping very well

And I'm not sure what is wrong with me
This feeling leaves little to compare
I know one day I'll realize that
This world isnt my cross to bear

And I am scared to death
That I'm wasting my life
Wasting my breath
And I think that the worst thing
Is never knowing
What all this means
Track Name: If A Train Leaves (Acoustic)
They say that to get distance
Just take rate by time
But how far do you have to go
To say you were alive?

If two trains leave the station
From distant cities
One's goin’ fast, one's goin’ slow
How soon will they meet?

But life is not as simple
As a straight line railroad track
And it's never fun to wonder
If you're ever comin’ back

If it leaves westbound at half past three
How long will it take before you hate me
Whoa whoa whoa if a train leaves
If a train leaves

They say that to find speed
Divide distance by time
Come on, let's see how fast we leave
Each other behind

If two trains leave the station
And they're going separate ways
Do you think they miss each other
And hope for better days?

Got plenty of time to drink
Just rollin’ on down the line
Got too much time to think
When something's on your mind

If it leaves westbound at half past three
How long will it take before you hate me
Whoa whoa whoa if a train leaves
If a train leaves
