Track Name: Drago
It's not that easy
I gave up completely
I tried, I tried

It's not like it's the end of everything
It's just the end of us

I thought it'd be easy
To give up completely
It's not, I swear
Track Name: Pops
My stomach is so fucked up
From the thought of you leaving

We'll stay until you're gone
We'll stay until you're gone

I guess I'll close my eyes
And try to sleep it off

We hope you sleep tonight
We hope you sleep through the night
Track Name: Elizabeth
Elizabeth, I'm sorry
Elizabeth, don't go

I tried my best this time
But i'm no good

Look at me with those eyes
Like you used to
Look at me with those eyes
So I know that i'll be just fine

Elizabeth, don't go
