Track Name: Portland (demo)
You said, "Portland is calling"
And how did we get here?

We lost it all
Again and again

I'm just trying to remember
A face that I used to know
Track Name: Coming of Age (demo)
I can't see straight anymore
The world is one big fucking blur
I've created a monster and it won't die
So sorry for all the wreckage it left behind

Am I ready?
Am I whole?
Do I have anything left to give to you or the world?
Am I ready?
Am I whole?

I'm not Freddie Mercury
I don't need somebody to love me
It's not that I'm not lonely
It's just that I have learned to be fine on my own
Track Name: We're Still Flying (demo)
Some people say
Life's only worth living if you're not alone
And you can only cross the universe with a hand to hold
I think they might be right
And I don't even have someone to hold tonight

I live my life by stories
Tales of love and hope
Things I've never known
All these things I lack
My brain gets so off track
It's not much
But it's enough

I heard you say
"I don't think that you're ready for someone like me,
My life is just too busy, you're so out of place"
And even if you're right
I'm begging you, don't send me home tonight
