Track Name: Shine
I have come too far
to live the death of a rock star
so as time passes slow
I begin to fill every echo

I won't go quiet
I won't be silent
like a stage without a band
a megaphone without a hand

now I wanna shine
I want the whole world to be mine
and I wanna know
no matter where these feet will go
that you'll swear
you'll always be there
in the dark for me to find
I wanna shine

I have come to crave
tales of my name beyond the grave
so as I play this show
I know to smile for radio

I won't go quiet
I won't be silent
like a stage without a band
a megaphone without a hand

now I wanna shine
I want the whole world to be mine
and I wanna know
no matter where these feet will go
that you'll swear
you'll always be there
in the dark for me to find
I wanna shine

the world is mine
I wanna shine
Track Name: Summer of '09 (feat. Meghan Tonjes)
I've made so many plans
after what you said last night
I didn't know what to do with my hands
wanted to ask if this was alright

and I pretend it's impulsive
but you already know the truth
I just want a picture of us
so I can put it on dailybooth

now I squeeze your hand tight
after everything we did
I know this is the last night
they'll ever think of us as kids
as we drive around and around and around
trying to escape this town

I can't quite find the words
but you listen and get it anyway
'cause who would have thought that two nerds
would get to have their day

and I pretend it's not a big deal
and you don't make a fuss
but I almost let out a squeal
you changed your relationship status

now I squeeze your hand tight
after everything we did
I know this is the last night
they'll ever think of us as kids
as we drive around and around and around
trying to escape this town

trying to escape

but we already know the truth
Track Name: Transistor
a hundred words to tell this story
about a girl and the boy before me
a song on repeat for two hours
I grit my teeth and I wish it was ours

track eleven, 3:48
same old chorus and guitar fade
like a band-aid make it quick
rip off the knob and enjoy the static

we all want what we can't have

'cause we all...
live and die on the radio
love and cry on the radio
wave goodbye on the radio

these hundred steps that lay before me
I'd walk 'em all if you'd see what I see
but just like a stone alone I sit
skipping 'our' song when I see you with him

counting seconds, 4:38
the record ends but the feelings don't fade
take a deep breath hold it in
I let it out knowin' what could have been

we all want what we can't have

'cause we all...
live and die on the radio
love and cry on the radio
wave goodbye on the radio

if only you could hear me
I'd show you what I see
if given time we could be
but we'll never know
Track Name: Transistor (The Michael Aranda Remix)
