Track Name: The Queen
It's you, I'll keep driving back down to see, like a night without good sleep, such as those i'd give to thee, in hopes that you'd remember
Track Name: I Didn't Know What I Was Getting Into
You showed me that I could be more than a kid to you
Track Name: Where Are You?
I'm going home to find my way
Track Name: Aligned
Waited a day to change
The ache that stays and doesn't go away
Lucky for me, you stayed
Look at me it's going to be okay
Aligned, I have found a way
