Track Name: Silhouette
When we first met, we were great at wasting time
So wrapped up in each other, the world left us behind

Silhouette
Playing on my wall
I thought you'd take me places, but I've gone nowhere at all

When I was at my best you'd find her by my side
Ignoring all the rest, my love was amplified
She didn't hang around when things were at their worst
I thought I'd moved beyond, but I guess I might be cursed

Silhouette
Hanging in my heart
I had her in my hands, but I couldn't play the part

We get together every now and then, and she's still as pretty as a song
What'll happen after I am dead, and the Silhouette remains forever on?

Another night, another girl, another song
Another hundred-thousand things I'm doing wrong
I swear I close my eyes and hear her in my dreams
When I try to write it down, it's never as it seems

Silhouette
Playing on my wall
I thought you'd take me places, but I've gone nowhere at all

Silhouette
Hanging in my heart
I had her in my hands
Fooling myself from the start
She knew I could never play the part
Track Name: Go Away Girl
Go away girl, I'll be better off alone
Go away girl, I'll happy on my own

The gentle sweetness through the keyhole of my eye
Unlocks the transformation to perilous within my mind

A thousand sleepless nights I found myself alone
To try and shake the fright, my poor heart turned to stone
Your beauty's not the only thing that I can see
There is a blackened heart that wants to make a fool of me

A million wanting stares I've had to turn away
I don't mean to be so cold, keeping my love at bay
The path of least resistance is to never fall
Better to never love than give your soul and lose it all

Go away girl, I'll be better off alone
Go away girl, I'll happy on my own

Go away girl, I don't want you anymore
Go away girl, you'll be happier, I'm sure
I keep the distance necessary to survive
If trapped in misery, then what's the point of being alive?

Go away girl, I'll be better off alone
Go away girl, I'll happy on my own
