Track Name: Brain Activity
You never lie to me
You never left my side
But I let you down
I made you cry
I didn't understand
What you meant to me
Or what I meant to you
More importantly
But you should know how much
I was in love with you
I know it doesn't make up for
What I put you through
So, now you lie to me
As you walk away
And you don't look back
You say you'll be okay

You keep wanting to start over
Some things change some things just stay the same
I feel my body getting older
I just can't let go
Track Name: And I
You and I
Were on the mend
A broken fence we have to tend
Is comin' up around the bend

For a moment
You can pretend
Cause another deal
Is comin' up around the bend

About that night
You could forget
You'll never bring it up again
'Til it comes around the bend

You think strength
Comes within
But like the truth it never did
It comes around the bend
