Track Name: To This Moment
I’m thankful for all that’s happened:
The good and seemingly bad
Every laugh and every cry,
Every regret that I’ve got,
And all the lessons that I learned
Have led me here

To this moment
To this moment

While all of it is happening
Little makes any sense
And all your questions answerless
And all you’ve got’s uncertainty
‘Till one day it just all
Seems to fall in place
With effort and patience
You’ll find your answers and you’ll
Find yourself happy to be
Right where you are
With the people around you
And the person you’ve become

To this moment
To this moment

Everything happens for the reason you choose
Everything happens for the reason you choose

To this moment
To this moment
Track Name: Relive Tonight
We still have some time
Before you’ve got to go
To keep doing whatever
We want to
So let’s make the most of what time we have
And not waste a moment being distracted
We’ll let autoplay choose what’s on next
And when it asks us if we're still watching
We’ll lie and say yes
It’ll be our secret

I already want to relive tonight
Even while it’s still happening
I already want to relive tonight
Even though you’re still here with me
I just wish we could

And I won’t try to convince you
To stay or take a later bus home
Because you need to get your rest
And we both know who would win that debate
Hint: you would

But I already want to relive tonight
Even while it’s still happening
I already want to relive tonight
Even though you’re still here with me
I just wish we

Could stay in this place for awhile longer
And not worry about our to-dos in the outside world
Just me and you on this burning couch

I already want to relive tonight
Even while it’s still happening
I already want to relive tonight
Even though you’re still here with me
I just wish we could
Track Name: For The First Time (I'm Alive)
I’ve been here before, I think
I’m not sure if it’s a memory or just a dream I had
I know I've heard these waves crashing
But something’s different, something’s changed since then

'Cause for the first time, I feel like I’m alive
And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here

What happened to all those years that passed?
Were they spent wisely or were they wasted?
Well, either way, I never want to go back, even if I could
'Cause all I want is to be right here, where I am

'Cause for the first time, I feel like I’m alive
And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here

Finally I’ve come full circle
And relearned how to be a child again
Maybe that’s the point of this
'Cause finally I’ve come full circle
And relearned how to be a child again
Maybe that’s the point of this

'Cause for the first time, I feel like I’m alive
And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here
For the first time, I feel like I’m alive
And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here
Track Name: Some Things'll Never Change
No matter how far you have strayed
From the path we thought you would take
No matter how much time has passed
We’ll always keep the porch light on
No matter the choices you’ve made
That we don’t agree with
No matter what you have done
Just know you’ll always be our child

'Cause some things’ll never change
Some things’ll never change

No matter how much you take from me
I would give it all away
Just so I could have you back
'Cause I’ve always looked up to you

And some things’ll never change
Some things’ll never change

Oh how proud I am that you turned around
And I get to call you my big brother again
I didn’t always like you during those years
But I never stopped loving you
And I never could

'Cause some things’ll never change
Some things’ll never change
Some things’ll never, they won’t ever change
Some things’ll never change
Track Name: Seasons Are Changing
See what’d I tell ya? Do you believe me now
Back when I said that with effort and patience you could
Get to the place where you wanted to be
Back when you started out on this journey?
And now you know that it never goes ex-
-actly how you planned it would
But that’s where the fun is: in not knowing
How the story goes

You ask, “How can you be so sure of what you're saying?”
And I say, “Just open your eyes and look around!”

Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are
Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are

You don’t have to have it all figured out
'Cause when the time comes then you’ll figure it out
By yourself or with some help, the things that you need
And the rest’ll fall away like the changing leaves

Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are
Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are
Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are
Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are
Track Name: It's Not Too Late
After all the fire’s been put out
And after all the subjects have been taught
Was there more that you wanted?
Or, was it enough? Well, was it?

'Cause can’t you feel, feel your heart beating?
Can’t you tell it’s not too late for you?

Could it be you think you missed all your chances?
As if somehow you have no more chances left?

Well can’t you feel, feel your heart beating?
Can’t you tell it’s not too late for you?

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Is still a valid question to ask yourself
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Is still a valid question to ask yourself

Can’t you feel, feel your heart beating?
Can’t you tell it’s not too late for you?
Can’t you feel, feel you’re still needed?
Can’t you tell it’s not over yet?
Track Name: Timelines
Here is where I’m meant to be
'Cause here is where I am today
Not comparing my place to theirs
But to my place of yesterday
Instead of wishing I was someone or somewhere different
'Cause that’s never done me any good
I’ll keep a picture of who and where I’ll be tomorrow
And I’ll get there when I do

Timelines will never be alike
And that’s good, what a bore if they were
I’ll get there when I get there
I’ll get there when I get there
I’ll get there when I get there
I’ll get there when I get there

It’s not wrong to want the things they have
It’s wrong to think something’s wrong with me if I don’t
It’s not wrong to want the things they have
It’s wrong to think something’s wrong with me if I don’t have them yet
'Cause I don’t have them yet
If I don’t have them yet
'Cause I don’t have them yet

Timelines will never be alike
And that’s good, what a bore if they were
I’ll get there when I get there
I’ll get there when I get there
I’ll get there when I get there
I’ll get there when I get there
Track Name: Goodbye, For Now
I’ve got to go see for myself
And learn who that is, and experience
And you’ve got to stay, and do your thing
And become who you were meant to be

This isn’t goodbye, this is goodbye, for now

Who knows what’ll be
In a year or two or three
I have my hope, though, if I’m being honest
I still have a fear

This is goodbye, and this isn’t goodbye, for now

So if I never get to see you again
Just know I’m thankful for the time we spent
But my hope is

This is goodbye, for now
And that I’ll see you in a little while
Goodbye, for now
I hope I’ll see you in a little while
