Track Name: Don't Make A Sound
There are a million words I need to try and get off my mind
But all the cynical lyrics of trivial things should be left behind
Cos I know it's not the way to go
But it's the one and only feeling that I know best
There are a million words I need to try and get off my chest
But for now, I'll keep them on the down low

Why does everybody feel they have to make a show of it all?
When we all have days we fall
And why can't we just know there must be better days in store?
There is more to life, than whining all our time into the ground
Lock up your thoughts, don't make a sound

Please just stop
It's neither here nor there
There's really no harm in keeping your calm and saying you don't care
And if you keep it inside, you can retain all your pride
And you will never have to confront your fears
And by showing restraint, you'll make sure your complaint won't fall on deaf ears

Why does everybody feel they have to make a show of it all?
When we all have days we fall
And why can't we just know there must be better days in store?
There is more to life, than whining all our time into the ground
Lock up your thoughts, don't make a sound
Track Name: Never Let It Go
Another day, another good reason to smile
Close your eyes, appreciate life for a while
You gave your all and I gave mine
You know we didn't waste our time
But it's still a shame
Don't wallow in your misery
Just follow that there is a reason
For your pain

But never let it go
Please never let it go
Oh never let it, never let it, never let it go

I am sure that karma exists on this earth
Be positive and you will get what you deserve
You're rarely there, barely awake
It could be worse for goodness sake
You're not the first
You lie and say you're feeling fine
When really you're just wishing time
Could be reversed

Never let it go
Please never let it go
Never, never, never, never, never let it go
Oh never let it go
Please never let it go
Never, never, never, never, never let it go
Oh never let it go
Please never let it go
Never let it, never let it, never let it go
Oh woah

Never let it go
Please never let it go
Never let it go
Please never let it go
Track Name: Good Things
Don't you know, don't you know?
Don't you know, don't you know?
Don't you know, don't you know?

Another lazy Sunday
You sit there hoping one day
In a month or two
That something good will happen
But nothing ever happens
That you want to
And all the time you sit around
Wasting your hours away

There's no such thing as fate
I just can't buy the lie
That good things come to those who wait
Rely on destiny, if you believe that farce
But as for me, regrettably
I'm gonna have to pass
I said I'm gonna have to pass

Seven days have gone now
And you can't figure out how
It slipped away
You need to motivate now
Before it gets too late and
Today is yesterday
I know they say time heals the pain
But time cannot do it alone

There's no such thing as fate
I just can't buy the lie
That good things come to those who wait
Rely on destiny, if you believe that farce
But as for me, regrettably
I'm gonna have to pass
I'm gonna have to pass

I know they say time heals the pain
But time cannot do it alone

There's no such thing as fate
I just can't buy the lie
That good things come to those who wait
Rely on destiny, if you believe that farce
But as for me, regrettably
I'm gonna have to pass
I'm gonna have to pass
I'm gonna have to pass
I'm gonna have to pass
I'm gonna have to pass
