Track Name: Chris Swartz - Murdock
I pulled out your letter tonight
I can't believe I wasn't the one writing it
Your picture's back in my wallet
Cause now I'm afraid to go far from it

I'm sitting next to my speaker
It's the only thing I'll get close to anymore

I won't be okay
I'm okay with that

Call me crazy but I'm not your baby anymore
If you call me baby it'll drive me crazy forevermore

I found sadness in my room
In an afternoon spending time away from the world

I won't be okay
I'm okay with that
But when I pushed myself down in a hole
I was always expecting to come back
Track Name: Chris Swartz - Tether
I'm everything you're scared of in a 5 foot 7 frame
Did I mention I'm pathetic?
I find no worth in my own name

They said I'll get over it
Don't get caught up in the feelings
But how the fuck do they know
All the shit I've been dealing with?
All summer long
All the shit I've been dealing with,
I tried to put it in a song

You thought you had me on a tether,
But ropes will always fray, my friend
Didn't mean I'd stay forever,
I knew this would come to an end

Thought I had your love,
Didn't mean it would last forever
Nothing in this world is absolute,
It's not even getting better

All summer long,
It hasn't gotten better
All summer long,
I've been waiting on the colder weather

Now give me something to latch onto,
So I know I'm getting better,
So I don't have to be myself
For the rest of forever

Lately, I've been asking myself whether I hate you or whether I miss you, because I left you, or because you left me a long time ago, and I never realized it. And now I just need a source of strength, someone, something, just to keep me up. Because right now I'm drowning, and I can barely breathe. I just need something to get me through to the other side - that's the only thing I ask for, that's it. Just someone, somewhere, somehow.

You might get into my head, but you'll never have my heart
I burned your picture on the side of the road, now what do you say to that?
