Track Name: Hold On
If we can't say another way it's working, I think it's fair to say we're through.
If we can't make it without breaking, I don't know what's left to do

\You found my heart in the middle of weakness
We've come so far so you can just take it

(Chorus)
When the magic starts to fade there is only one way to hold on
Hold on, hold on
Catch the big sparks as they fly, watch the small ones pass you by
to hold on

If we can't find the moment we said "you're mine" we need to stop being blind
If we can't feel the way we did on that first day
I say we go another way

I found your heart in the middle of beating
We've come so far, so now we just make it

(Chorus)

Hold on, just hold on, hold on, just hold on
Hold on, just hold on, hold on, just hold on
Hold on, just hold on, hold on, just hold on
Hold on, just hold on, hold on, just hold on

(Chorus)
Track Name: Payment
Go away I beg you while I try to forget you
With every old trick; how did I get to this?
I chased away paper planes, oh I've gone everyday
full of chances, come back empty handed

Cause holding onto you is like holding onto sand
Watch it fall through my hands
Cause holding onto you is like holding onto sand
Watch it fall through my hands

(Chorus)
So take back every word you say because I swear my response
won't change
So take back every note you pay so I'm not in debt to the love
that slipped away

Cut the line before I, I create a lie
To say goodbye to you again
I saw the light shine through, I tried to call for you
But there was nothing on the other end

Cause holding onto you is like holding onto sand
Watch it fall through my hands
Cause holding onto you is like holding onto sand
Watch it fall through my hands

(Chorus)
Track Name: Release Me
Windows stained with the tears from the sky I want to douse you with love
Trees swaying with every breath I make
As I anticipate you

Keep making me climb that mountain
You'll never be able to give me that much loving
Oh so I take it back, oh baby please come back
Come back to the times that I adored you

(Chorus)
Why do you keep on going underground?
It feels to deep for me, you're feeling around for
nothing that exists, oh I tell you what I miss
It's soaking up, floating on those lips
Release me to this lost time, oh yes

Stop the clock from moving
I wanna be in this moment
Head back to the times you lacked decency
Oh twist and turn, mold you into something
Something that would make you worthy

Keep making me climb that mountain
You'll never be able to give me that much loving
Oh so I take it back, oh baby please come back
Come back to the times that I adored you

(Chorus)

Release me, release me, oh yeah, oh yeah
Release me, release me, oh yeah, oh yeah
Release me, release me, oh yeah oh yeah
Release me to this lost time, oh yeah.
Track Name: Beautiful Moments
Why, why why do beautiful moments expire?
Why why why do beautiful moments expire?

(Chorus)
Why can't we just hold on together
Let's take a beat so this love can be better
Cause when you're holding onto me, there's a change in the weather
Oh why, oh why, oh why do beautiful moments expire?

Slow it down baby take a breath
All I wanna do is lay on your chest
Love me harder, do your best
So these beautiful moments can lay to rest

(Chorus)

When I'm with you time last a while
Never feel alone til I'm a hundred miles
I can feel your core when you see me smile
So then why do beautiful moments expire

Moments expire, expire

(Chorus)
Track Name: Mister
When I first laid my eyes on you I said 'you're the one'
Sending chills down my spine, boy you made me come undone
Oh when you first said my name you sent my heart on a run
Oh I tried to be tame boy, but I wanted to jump the gun

(Chorus)
Ain't no mystery mister
if you don't call me I'm done
Trying to make some magic with ya
Catch me babe before I'm gone

Tried to follow the signs but they're leading me astray
Trying to read between the lines
Baby we ain't on the same page
Oh I won't wait another day while you make up your mind
My heart says I should walk away baby - 'cause you ain't giving it time

(Chorus)

Hit me with the choir if you feel me, come on
(Chorus)

Mister, mister
I'm so done, I'm so done
I'm trying baby
You're gonna miss this ass
you're gonna miss these hips
you're gonna miss these lips baby

(Chorus)

Hm, I ain't gonna call your ass again.
