Track Name: 400 Days
Four-hundred days and a couple of changes
I could be yours
Take it or leave it
All I have to give you is my heart

But you've already taken that away
So here's to the next four-hundred days

A sharp taste is better than regret
I can handle rejection as long as there's nothing on my chest

But you've already taken me away
So here's to the next four-hundred days
And you've already taken me away
So here's to the next four-hundred days

I just can't find a good enough reason to stay
I just can't find a good enough reason to stay

You've already taken me away
And you've already taken me away
And you've already taken me away
And you've already taken me away

Four-hundred days and a couple of changes
I could be yours
Take it or leave it
All I had to give you was my heart
Track Name: San Francisco
I heard once from the start
That you'd fall into the sea
And we would all go down too
'Cause that's how love was to be

But I just can't make a commitment like that
You see
I don't know if I could
Follow you into the sea

San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh

The Bay is as blue as the sky
Enough to make my heart twist
But that's no reason to die
I'll have to let go of this

'Cause I just can't make a commitment like that
You see
I could never in all my life
Follow you into the sea

San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh

I don't know if I left my heart here
But I'll miss you
I don't know if I left my heart here
But I'll miss you

San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
San Francisco oh oh
Track Name: Empty Heart
My sleeves are back
Too long, too thick
I've moved too fast
And I can't stay
As long as I feel this way

Now I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted
Now I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted

The streets feel dark
And I feel lost like I've lost my heart
So where'd you go?
You were all I had and you left me alone

Now I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted
Now I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted

And I loved you to bits
So I held on to this
And now I'm wondering
If you ever did exist
And when I left
I detested what I'd done
And now that I'm back
You seem to be gone

Now I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted
Now I'm being haunted by an empty heart
I'm being haunted
Track Name: Maybe In The Future But Probably Not
I could've fallen for you hard
But you kept me back the length of your arms
And then I flew so far away
With just the promise I'd be back again someday

It's nice to think what could've been
It's nice to know the future's still unseen
And eight months isn't such a long time
So maybe then we could give us another try

Then again I think we missed our shot
So maybe in the future but probably not
Maybe in the future but probably not!

Probably not
Probably not

Well it's been great and it's been fun
But I still don't think that you're "the one"
But don't dismay I'd wait a day
Before I let you down and moved on

It's nice to think what could've been
It's nice to know the future's still unseen
And eight months isn't such a long time
So maybe then we could give us another try

Then again I think we missed our shot
So maybe in the future but probably not
Maybe in the future but probably not

Probably not
Probably not
Probably not

One, two, three, four
I'm not yours
One, two, three, four
I'm not yours
One, two, three, four
I'm not yours

I could've fallen for you hard
But you kept me back the length of your arms

Then again I think we missed our shot
So maybe in the future but probably not
Maybe in the future but probably not

Probably not
Probably not
Probably not
Probably not
Track Name: Whatever Comes Next
It's a dark world out there, no doubt I'm scared
Afraid of guns, afraid of bears
It's terrifying to live a life
So easily compromised
By the whim of another passing mind
In just a blink they can steal our time

So if I get shot today
I want to say before I go
It's simple yet complex
I'm not sure I'll miss you
Whatever comes next
Whatever comes next

It may sound cold, it may sound crass
But I swear I'm not a sociopath
I'm just a human being
Numbed by all the terrors that I've seen

So if I get shot today
I want to say before I go
It's simple yet complex
I'm not sure I'll miss you
Whatever comes next
Whatever comes next

Ooooh
Oooooh
Oooooh

So if I get shot today
I want to say before I go
It's simple yet complex
I'm not sure I'll miss you
If I get shot today
I want to say before I go
It's simple yet complex
I'm not sure I'll miss you
Whatever comes next
Whatever comes next

I'm not sure I'll miss you
Whatever comes next
Track Name: The Passenger's Seat
If I stay still
And remain in the same place
Could I stop time
From ticking away the days?
Or if I held my breath
And looked out the window
Could I see what's next
And where I should go?

But life has already started, oh no
So will I be lost long before I know

That time ticks on just like your heartbeat
But that's just life and you're in the passenger's seat

If I started
Taking pictures of everything
Would I capture life
And our true meaning?
Or if I let it go
And got lost in the mainstream
Would I enjoy the days
For the sake of just breathing?

'Cause life has already started, oh no
So will I be lost long before I know

That time ticks on just like your heartbeat
But that's just life and you're in the passenger's seat
Time ticks on just like your heartbeat
But that's just life and you're in the passenger's seat

So dance like the light in your eyes
And dance like the light in your eyes

While time ticks on just like your heartbeat
'Cause that's just life and you're in the passenger's seat
Time ticks on just like your heartbeat
But that's just life and you're in the passenger's seat
Track Name: The Realisation That I'm Human
I'm having a mental breakdown
On a Saturday
I can't cope with my existence
I really want to fade away

But that's not really fair
'Cause that's not really what I wanna say

It's the realisation that I'm human
And that's okay
I'm just human and that's okay

I'm having existential crises
With my morning cereal
I sometimes wonder if I'm still dreaming
This is all so surreal

But that's not really fair
And that's not really what I wanna say

It's the realisation that I'm human
And that's okay
I'm just human and that's okay

And dark thoughts don't mean the end of the world
Dark thoughts don't mean the end of the world
We all have days where we feel small and curled
But dark thoughts don't mean the end of the world

We're all just human and that's okay
We're all just human and that's okay
We're all just human and that's okay
We're all just human and we'll die one day
Track Name: Sleeves
Pull my sleeves over my hands
Look at the floor, that's how I stand
If you look me in the eye
I panic a little inside
I want to hide, but I think it's time to change

I'll cut off all of my sleeves
This introvert inside of me
I'll cut off all of my sleeves
This introvert inside of me
I want to leave it behind
I want to leave it behind

Lock myself away from you
I'd rather be alone in my room
But it gets so lonely up there
And I feel so ill-prepared

I'll cut off all of my sleeves
This introvert inside of me
I'll cut off all of my sleeves
This introvert inside of me
I want to leave it behind
I want to leave it behind

I'll cut off all of my sleeves
This introvert inside of me
I'll cut off all of my sleeves
This introvert inside of me
I want to leave it behind
I want to leave it behind
Track Name: Beating Around The Bush
I just bought a new pen
It's silver and it writes pretty well
But that's not what I came here to tell you
There's something else on my mind
I'm just wasting time
You see I know we only kissed
But ever since I've thought of nothing but your lips

And it's a stupid thing to say
'Cause I'm leaving in a day
But here I am
And I think I like you anyway
I think I like you anyway

So what about this weather?
And what about the rain?
You'd say "it's Ireland, babe"
And everything is explained
Now I'm just beating around the bush
'Cause I'm awkward as hell
And I don't like to share emotions
And this is like show and tell

And it's a stupid thing to do
To have fallen for you
But here I am
Think I like you it's true
Think I like you it's true

And there's 4,569 miles to think about you
And that's the distance between us so I don't know what to do
I don't know what I'd do
If I had to say goodbye to you

And it's a stupid thing to say
'Cause I'm leaving in a day
But here I am
And I think I like you anyway
I think I like you anyway
I think I like you anyway
Track Name: Piss Off To Somewhere Better
You hopped on a plane
Guess you had to get away
To escape these dreams
That haunted you everyday

But when I told you to come back to me whole
Or else I'd go and drag you home
You just laughed
And said
"I'm off to somewhere better for a while,
I'm off to see the world from the sky."

You hopped on a plane
And you left me at the gate
Second guessing if
I was worth the wait

But when I told you to come back to me whole
Or else I'd go and drag you home
You just laughed
And said
"Piss off to somewhere better to keep sane
We'll meet back here when there's less rain
Piss off to somewhere better while I'm gone
Unless we both move on"

Oooooh

You hopped on a plane
Guess you had to get away
Track Name: The Moon Is Down (feat. Colm Bohan)
Darling the moon is down
And we're awake after hours
So tell me what you found
Looking up from the gutter

Darling the moon is down
And my mouth tastes bitter
With no one else around
I think the stars looked brighter

And I can't dream of anything
But the right side of your face
And I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be
If you were a place

Darling the moon is down
And there's a chance I'm on fire
So every second counts
And we're down to the wire

Darling the moon is down
And my head keeps spinning
The world is filled with sound
So will you keep on singing?

And I can't dream of anything
But the right side of your face
And I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be
If you were a place

Oooooh oooh

Darling the moon is down
And my mouth tastes bitter
With no one else around
I think the stars looked brighter...
