Track Name: Keep Me Going
i hope some day
mom won't have to pray
that i'll make it through the night okay

and i hope some day
i won't have to pray
that my will will last another day

i have to say
it's no fun being sick
it's no fun being sick
it's no fun being sick

i hope some day
the northern lights from sitka
will shine wherever i failed to end up

and i hope some night
when they don't find me in my bed
there'll be something for mom to take care of

i have to say
it's no fun being sick
it's no fun being sick
it's no fun being sick

my fear keeps me going
my fear keeps me here
Track Name: Elegy (For a Grown Man)
my plane fell from the clouds over montana
the engine carried us down from the sky
so i'm glad I wrote down all my little songs
my friends will have something to remember me by

i'm sorry that i was a piece of garbage
who, in the night, would cry over nothing
but i hope someone out there knows that i was trying
at least

my train crashed on the way back to alaska
a pressure cooker knocked us from the rails
i was running from this complicated life
so i wouldn't
keep being so selfish

and i was never trying
to hurt anyone
but i guess i couldn't help it

and i wish I could give back
all the things my parents gave me
but i kept them
i kept it all to myself
Track Name: Every Last Breath
she stops by the market
for the third time today
the dog is barking
the house is empty

she says she needs to know
that i'm ok
but we're both afraid it's not an option

she says i need to take it
day by day
but we both know that's not all it takes

i wish i could give back everything life never gave you
i wish i could seem happy for you
but i'm trying
i'm trying

your dad hit you
your mother couldn't help
but you dealt with him

you said you need to know that i'm ok
but that's a promise i'll never be able to me

i wish i could give back everything i took away from you
i wish i could be happy for you
but i'm trying
i'm trying

and i'll give it every last breath
i'll give it every last breath
