Track Name: As of Now
I was tempted by grief it became a disease within me
I was fooled by the sights, truth was slightly out of my reach

These are the things you couldn't teach me
These are the things I wouldn't learn

Such a hypocrite I was, only knew the blood to cleanse my own folly
But now I'm a witness to the damage a bitter heart can do
There's this beauty so divine it brings me to my knees

These are the things you couldn't teach me
These are the things I wouldn't learn

As of now I am not well, but I will be soon enough
As of now I am not well, but I will be soon enough

These are the things you couldn't teach me
These are the things I wouldn't learn
Track Name: Return to Sender
There was a family that lived on my street
And I loved them all
The mother, her name was Diane
She had humor that made you smile
Well, she drank herself away about a year ago
The father, he was a simple man
Honest but not too serious
Well, he took his life one afternoon
Didn't leave a note or anything
The boys were orphans after that
Who knows what it did to their minds
They moved away with their aunt
Haven't seen 'em since

But if I could see 'em now
There are a few things I would say to them
I hope you are doing alright
I hope the people you meet treat you kindly
And I hope I was good to you when I had the chance to be
And if I wasn't, I am so sorry
And if I wasn't, consider this my deepest apology
Track Name: Steady
Steady as I go
Just gotta be sure of what I'm doing
If I'm honest, I am afraid
I'll be honest anyways

All ebbs and flows
More often than not I cannot bear it
Oh how little is my faith
Oh how little is my faith

Ready as I'll ever be
Just gotta learn how to pick up my feet
I was never meant to stay
I was never meant to stay
