Dylan Barton Catchy and excellently produced. Could listen to for hours on end, and the cover art brings back some melancholy nostalgia. Favorite track: Fifteen Minutes of Fame.

Stephen Darby This album is really catchy and well produced. I've put it on before and completely forgotten that it was on repeat about four or five times through. It wouldn't matter anyway, though. Favorite track: Fifteen Minutes of Fame.

Track Name: Zero Degrees
I don't care if everyday
I wake up next to an empty space
and a shitty cup of coffee, I never drink.
Maybe I'm just comforting myself,
I can't think about anyone else.

Just know you're not the one that got away,
(I would never let you have that)
Just the one that tore apart my mental state.

Everything we used to know,
is leaving through the window.
The winter air is getting in,
You left marks against my skin.
Marks against my skin.

Maybe before I get bad again,
I'll tell you all my plans.
I was gonna quit my job and drive around,
Run every red light in this town,
Have you right there with me singing every song
(On the radio.)

Just know you're not the one that got away,
You're just the one that tore apart my mental state.

Everything we used to know,
Is leaving through the window,
The winter air is getting in,
You left marks against my skin,
You left marks against my skin.

Everything we used to know,
Is leaving through the window,
Is leaving through the window.
(1, 2, 3, 4)
The winter air is getting in,
You left marks against my skin,
You left marks against my.

Everything we used to know,
Is leaving through the window,
Is leaving through the window.
The winter air is getting in,
You left marks against my skin,
you left marks against my...
Track Name: Ten Simple Steps To Losing Everything You Love (Ft. Varrick Bruno)
Stop the words as quickly as you breathe them, choke on things that no one wants to hear. Otherwise you'll stand there locked outside my door my dear.

So go ahead and scream into your cellphone even louder like it makes him understand. How many days until it hits you that he doesn't ever want to see your face again.

And this isn't gonna be the first time, and maybe it's just you those boys can't stand. Your insecurity is so overwhelming. This probably isn't just the first lie he's told to make you miss him that you believed, because you don't want to know he's sleeping with your friends.

If you're crawling back to me you're crazy, i don't want to hear a thing you have to say. "I love you" is just another word you use to get your way.

Go ahead and scream into my window even louder like it makes him understand. How many days until it hits you that he doesn't ever want to see your face again.

And this isn't gonna be the first time, and maybe it's just you those boys can't stand. Your insecurity is so overwhelming. This probably isn't just the first lie he's told to make you miss him that you believed, because you don't want to know he's sleeping with your friends.

So forfeit all emotion, so i can't feel. Because hindsight is 20/20 and i can see now, the person you are for real

And this isn't gonna be the first time, and maybe it's just you those boys can't stand. Your insecurity is so overwhelming. This probably isn't just the first lie he's told to make you miss him that you believed, because you don't want to know he's sleeping with your friends.
Track Name: Hymn or Me
You wake up as a stranger,
Sleep like a victim.
You're punished for all of those things you won't do.
Like give up yourself,
Tell him you love him.
Rest like an angel for all you've been through.
Or just cover your face,
Make me a stranger,
Give up yourself and don't mind the danger,
You get yourself into.
Too late to look back,
And if this is the future,
It's not something I want to do.

You're the girl of my dreams.
You mean everything to me,
And I guess I only have you in my head.
And I hope that when you think of me,
You remember the good times,
The trouble we found ourselves,
And those memories we'll never forget.

Now we're making up stories,
To tell all our friends.
And you tell me you hate it,
How everything ends.
Like those days that we spent playing games in the park,
To those shit high school dances alone in the dark.
You were scared and I knew it,
I loved you I blew it.
I took it much farther than we ever wanted to go.

You're the girl of my dreams.
You mean everything to me,
And I guess I only have you in my head.
And I hope that when you think of me,
You remember the good times,
The trouble we found ourselves,
And those memories we'll never forget.

Forever could never have felt so long.
Those days spent with you were so worth it.
So perfect.
I want to stay with you forever.

You're the girl of my dreams.
You mean everything to me,
And I guess I only have you in my head.
And I hope that you still think of me,
We could light up this city,
And still fall asleep because we know,
These memories will never fade.
Track Name: Wishing for a Nightmare
I made a big mistake,
I know it's hard to say.
Never wanted to be this way before.

Now I'm thinking random thoughts.
Forcing out the pain.
Trying to believe,
This is just a dream,
That I'm not insane.

And it's not the last time,
That I'll ask you,
Just what I could do to end this for you.
And I'm sorry I don't know,
Don't act like you do.
Just what could come of this.
I'm missing being with you.

And I'm wishing for a nightmare,
Wishing you could've been there.
Trying to believe.
Walking on my bare feet,
Standing on the concrete.
Trying to believe.

Hold on tight,
And don't let go.
I'll make this right,
I'll try and show,
But you don't have to know.

And it's not the last time,
That I'll ask you,
Just what I could do to end this for you.
And I'm sorry I don't know,
Don't act like you do.
Just what could come of this.
I'm missing being with you.

And I'm wishing for a nightmare,
Wishing you could've been there.
Trying to believe.
Walking on my bare feet,
Standing on the concrete.
Trying to believe.

Hold on tight,
And don't let go.
I'll make this right,
I'll try and show,
But you don't have to know.

And it's not the last time,
That I'll ask you,
Just what I could do to end this for you.
And I'm sorry I don't know,
Don't act like you do.
Just what could come of this.
I'm missing being with you.
Track Name: Fifteen Minutes of Fame
Scribbled out your name across the contrast of the paper,
Spinning round and round to walk a straight line,
Back into your room.
I don't wanna play this game,
I know nothing lasts forever.
I doubt we'll even make it through the night.

We take off our clothes,
We take off colors.
Nothing seems to matter when we're all one in the same.
We turn off the lights,
We turn on each other,
Because this would be a big mistake if we said this was love.
I'm having too much alcohol,
You're having too much fun.

Stop living in the replay,
Stop living in the replay,
I'm not gonna stand another second with you bringing up your past again.
Stop living in the replay,
Stop living in the replay,
I won't commit to any promise but I promise you,
I want this night to last.

Days slipped away.
Minutes felt like decades.
We grew older every second and at dawn we grew apart,
So I'll try to keep this fuck,
and this night as just a memory.
Try and find a place inside my heart.

Throw out all the sheets,
Throw out all the covers.
They couldn't hide the awful truth that there was nothing there.
Forget about the drinks,
Forget about each other.
Just make me a story you're too scared to tell your friends.
Throw up all the alcohol,
And throw up both your hands.

Stop living in the replay,
Stop living in the replay,
I'm not gonna stand another second with you bringing up your past again.
Stop living in the replay,
Stop living in the replay,
I won't commit to any promise but I promise you,
I want this night to last.
