Track Name: Familiar
I don't want another college love
They never end well
I don't want another dream-come-true
They never make it in day light
I don't need another failed attempt
To fill a childhood gap
I am planning to release myself
From the burden of my past

It would be so easy
It would be so easy
It would be so easy to repeat -peat -peat
It would be so easy
It would be so easy
It would be so easy
So familiar

I don't want another soul to save
So I could hide from my life
I don't want another half-made man
That wants to find truth in my eyes
I don't need another self-proclaimed strong man
That really isn't
I am tired of slowing down
So we could hold on real tight

O-oh I'm tired ...

It would be so easy
It would be so easy
It would be so easy to repeat -peat -peat
It would be so easy
It would be so easy
It would be so easy
So familiar

O-oh, o-oh, o-oh, o-oh ...
Track Name: Happier
So many sleepless nights
So many things uncertain
And I’m happier than ever

If you think that I’m just crazy
And you don’t know what I’m talking about
Then you’ve never really fought
And you’re really missing out

Happier than ever
I’m happier than ever

I’ve been here for a moment
And I’ve tried things, and I’ve failed
But I can’t say I regret any stupid thing I’ve done

Every time we get what we want
We learn that it’s not enough
Cause you’ll never find your peace
In the things your eyes can see

Happier than ever
I’m happier than ever
Track Name: Hidden
There's a light that shines within us,
it reflects all colors.
There's a light that shines within us,
it reflects all colors and all sadness.

There's a place where I have hidden
all the treasures that define me.
There's a place where I am waiting
to uncover all the good I came with.
