Track Name: Ava
I lie in bed and think about how our phone calls would've gone,
If I had asked you for your number, but instead I just drove off
What could've been?
What could've blossomed from the one night that we had?
But Rhode Island isn't in the picture and you're never coming back

Maybe we're better off this way
You'll never have to learn my flaws
You would've grown sick anyway
I know this for certain
Track Name: Pretty Dream
Saw you naked on the bathroom floor
Hit your head on the sink the night before
Pants around your ankles, soiled wet
Do you think we've had enough yet?
Beer cans and coke bags from last night
Every morning fill me more and more with fright
Is this forever?
Scared as shit over what I might've said
Afraid of losing friends, I'm wishing I was dead
Can I recover?
Fading quickly, I don't know what I've got, but I'm sick.

Another night that left something to be desired
I thought it'd wake up me up, but I just left much more tired
This downward spiral's more than I can take
A breakdown's just a bad day away it seems

I'm tired of doing the same stuff, drinking until it's not so rough
Instead of thinkin' on my problems, I'll just forget and not solve them
You laugh and look like a pretty dream, it's hard cause nothing is what it seems
I waltz my way across the room and tell all of my secrets to you
