Track Name: Kind of Brave
Kind of Brave

Words onto a notebook page
With hearts, I hope you'll read someday
So easily I write them down
They fly, never touch the ground
The sweetest air, it holds them up
It holds me up, you know

You make me that kind of brave
Like love letters on paper planes
I let 'em go
I'm letting go
And all my worries drift away
Like love letters on paper planes
I let 'em go
I'm letting go

A yellow kite floats in the breeze
I run with grass stains on my knees
I'm skipping stones, climbing rocks
So unafraid of falling off
The sweetest air, it holds me up
It's holding us, you know

You make me that kind of brave
Like love letters on paper planes
I let 'em go
I'm letting go
And all my worries drift away
Like love letters on paper planes
I let 'em go
I'm letting go

I'm letting go, I'm letting go
I'm letting go of all the cares
The years have taught me should be there
I'm letting go
It's just a sunny afternoon
There's nothing we can't do

Cause you make me that kind of brave
Like love letters on paper planes
I let 'em go
I'm letting go
And all my worries drift away
Like love letters on paper planes
I let 'em go
I'm letting go
I'm letting go
I'm letting go
Track Name: The Girl Who Used to Live Here
The Girl Who Used to Live Here

I lie here, cheek against the hardwood floor
These torn-up flowers are all I've got
I cry here, even though I knew before
I think I knew you loved me not

I stare back, I stare back in disbelief
At the footprints in my wake
Today I smashed, smashed a mirror on my knee
Cause it lied and said I haven't changed

But the girl who used to live here in these bones
She knew who to let love her and who just to let go
And the girl who used to live here in these bones
She knew that you weren't good for her, but I just didn't know
How to..

Say goodbye, I will say goodbye
Like I mean it, like I mean it this time
I will say goodbye, I will say goodbye
Like I believe it, like I believe I finally got something right

The years slipped and with them went my best
All my pieces that were good
And how I wish I could blame you for this theft
But I gave you everything you took

The girl who used to live here in these bones
She cared enough to leave here when your alibis would start
And the girl who used to live here in these bones
She cared enough to look out for the back side of her heart
And..

Say goodbye, I will say goodbye
Like I mean it, like I mean it this time
I will say goodbye, I will say goodbye
Like I believe it, like I believe I finally got something right

Oh, yeah I've got something right

The girl who used to live here in these bones
It was so hard for her to love you, now it's hard for me to stop
And the girl who used to live here in these bones
It was so hard for her to love, but I'm ready now to stop

And say goodbye, I will say goodbye
Now I'm leaving and I believe I finally got something right
Track Name: Nothing Fair About a Fairytale
Nothing Fair About a Fairytale

There's nothing fair about a fairytale
Somebody wins somebody's born to fail
And who's to say only the good prevail
There's nothing fair about it
There's nothing fair about it

Somebody told me once upon a time
There was an evil witch serving time
She poisoned fruit and put young girls to sleep
So she deserves a life of misery
But no one ever tells her side
No one ever wonders why
No they'll never know why

There's nothing fair about a fairytale
Somebody wins somebody's born to fail
And who's to say only the good prevail
There's nothing fair about it
There's nothing fair about it

Maybe the young witch dreamed she'd fall in love
But life burned her every time she touched
Maybe her one mistake got out of hand
Temptation struck and now she's damned
And no one ever seems to care
No one sees we've all been there
Yeah we've all been there

There's nothing fair about a fairytale
Somebody wins somebody's born to fail
And who's to say only the good prevail
There's nothing fair about it
There's nothing fair about it

Some frogs weren't mine to kiss
Some stories weren't mine to win
No one will ever know where I've been
No they'll never know why

There's nothing fair about a fairytale
Somebody wins somebody's born to fail
And who's to say only the good prevail
There's nothing fair about it
There's nothing fair about it

I'm feeling like it's all my fault
I'm burning at the stake of it all
I guess the hero all depends
On where the story starts and ends

There's nothing fair about it
There's nothing fair about it
There's nothing fair about it
Track Name: The Door
The Door

One two three four
One step two more
Slow and steady, I walk to the door

Objects in motion stay in motion
I'm a drop of water lost inside an ocean
You're an anchor, my almost savior
But I'm used to running from safety to danger
And I don't know how to stop my fate
Near the ending of the plank

One two three four
One step two more
Slow and steady I walk to the door
Five six seven
I keep treading
I don't know what I am moving toward
I don't think happiness is on the other side of this
But I've tried to dig my heels into the floor
But you can't stop a wave from crashing on the shore

The sand's a blanket of glass and laced with
Shards of loneliness for me to lay with
Still I'm running, a harsh homecoming
Do I take comfort in the pain or in the numbing?
I built up my own prison cell
I don't know how to save myself

One two three four
One step two more
Slow and steady I walk to the door
Five six seven
I keep treading
I don't know what I am moving toward
I don't think happiness is on the other side of this
But I've tried to dig my heels into the floor
But you can't stop a wave from crashing on the shore

Oooooooh
I am crashing, crashing, crashing down
I am crashing, crashing, crashing down
I am crashing, crashing, crashing down
I need the man up in the moon
The man in the moon to pull me out
Pull me out

One two three four
One step two more
Slow and steady, I walk to the door
