Track Name: La Alma
It’s now been almost three years since
and still you treat me differently.
Yes, I’ve changed, through your guilt-tripping
Are you sure I’m the one not over it?

What happened to the friend (I known before),
Who said she’ll be with me (in our darkest days?)
Well, your sun has set, and night is young
Let the moonlight shine some light on.

So far are the words you said.
So far from the truth they never meant.
So, Take a step back and think this through,
I’m much at fault as you are too
So far are the words you said.

And if for some twist of fate
Our paths decide to cross again
I hope you won’t make things so awkward for me to begin with.
Or mutter more pettiness.
If it’s under your breath,
Keep those words in your chest.

And this whole time,
You played the victim
In a crime,
That you accused me for.

So far are the words you said.
So far from the truth they never meant.
So, Take a step back and think this through,
I’m much at fault as you are too
So far are the words you said.

So far are the words you said.
When you put those thoughts into my head
Lead me to a hole instead.
I know it’s not the way it seems,
Visions get confused with dreams
So tell the past it’s broken now
Wind me up,
Push me to the ground
So far are the words you said.
So far from the truth they never meant.
So, Take a step back and think this through,
I’m much at fault as you are too
So far are the words you said.
Track Name: Verandah
How could I've known that I would fall for you?
I did, but hey that's nothing new.
I've seen this happen in my past,
To want someone who I can't have.

I'm sure you've seen this a thousand times,
And all you heard were only lies.
But I see so much in you,
Can you see what's in me too?

Please, if you can let me be
The things you want and the things you need, I'll let these
Walls of mine come falling down

You'll never know the things that I won't say.
I would, but I'm just too afraid
To let my guard back down again,
And find out how this would end.

I confess that when I see your face,
My heart beats in and out of place.
I never knew what butterflies were,
And these hands could shake the Earth.

Please, if you can let me be
The things you want and the things you need, I'll let these
Walls of mine come falling down

Falling through the dark to find light
And the grace within your eyes.
Paint me black and blue from the inside.
I can't tell you, even if I tried.

Falling through the dark to find light
And the grace within your eyes.
Paint me black and blue from the inside.
I can't tell you, even if I tried.
Track Name: Transient
Good morning, East Coast
Did you sleep last night?
I've been up since the break of dawn
With only one thing in mind.

And I think of you
Every time I look at my phone and
I hope we'd meet each other soon.

And I found out that
The best things in life I left at home
And strangers I have never met
Mean more to me than I would ever know

"So long, West Coast",
I can't wait to say those words.
Take me away from this rain
And all these cloudy days.

And I wish we could
Finally talk face-to-face and
Laugh at the things we used to do.

And I found out that
The best things in life I left at home
And strangers I have never met
Mean more to me than I would ever know

Let's cheers for the last three years
of our lives.
I'm surprised we even made it this far
And the distance won't seem like much
As long as we cross it off.
It's strange how someone I never met
Could impact me so much
This means everything to me

And I found out that
The best things in life I left at home
And strangers I have never met
Mean more to me than I would ever know
Track Name: Seraph
It's two o'clock and I'm not dreaming
About you, no, I'm over thinking
Things that should just stay in my past and leave.

I'm scared to death of the habits that broken
The first person that I fell in love with,
And how that might come between us both.

And if I thought for once what she taught me
Oh, the pain this pleasure brings
I would've learned by now.

I can't forget how lightly my sheets felt
After the salt stains dried and faded,
But the guilt still weighs down on my chest.

She's exactly why I can't trust myself
Being this close with someone else,
But I know that I have to work on it.

And if I thought for once what she taught me
Oh, the pain this pleasure brings
I would've learned by now.

And if I thought for once what she taught me
Oh, the pain this pleasure brings
I would've learned by now.
Track Name: Anima
In three days,
We celebrate our
Six months of being in love.

You already know how much
I wish we could spend it together
But, I know by now that time is against us.

Sometimes,
I wonder how others can
Manage to love someone
With only messages

And I dread the thought of
Losing you in the fog
Of this distance

And I'll do anything
To be with you tonight.
And it'll take everything from me
To stay by your side.
Track Name: Serendipity
Hey you, in the glass
It's been awhile since we spoke last
How are things with you?

I hope that you are being well
And you are doing better now
Since we talked last year

Know that there's light within the dark
What's happening now won't seem much
As you look back to see exactly how stronger you’ve become

Take, take, take a moment to breathe
Let the air blow away the anxiety
And forget all the doubts you made

The hardest thing I had to do
Was to prove I'm worth all this to you

I remember how I felt
While I was with my friends
But still they made me feel so alone

So I kept you close to me
Because you we're the one person
I neglected all throughout my whole life.

The hardest thing I had to do
Was to prove I'm worth all this to you
And I think that we should start
Looking towards the path ahead of us

This past year has taught me
That there's light in all this dark
This past year has taught me
You had it in all along

And one last thing I have to say,
If hopelessness comes creeping
You'll beat it, trust me
I'm living proof

The hardest thing I had to do
Was to prove I'm worth all this to you
And I think that we should start
Looking towards the path ahead of us
