Adam Lennon I’ve absolutely loved Ryan since his days in smile smile - but this record is so refreshing! It sounds like he’s finally doing EXACTLY what he‘s meant to be doing. This is my favorite album of the year and I’ve been telling everyone who will listen about it. Love all of this guy’s music but this entire album is just on a different level - it’s so perfect it hurts. And for anyone who loves this album but doesn’t already, you need to support Ryan on Patreon - if only to get the commentary and the demos which will definitely further your appreciation for these already powerful songs. Favorite track: Feels Like Falling In Love.

Bottoms up, here's to goodbye I don't mean to burst your bubble but something's weighing on my mind This may cause some trouble, I hope that I don't sound unkind While you've been drinking this ship's still sinking But bottoms up, here's to goodbye Ba ba da ba ba, ba da da da bye bye 2x Bottoms up, here's to goodbye By the time you're seeing double, we'll both be packing up our things You're gonna wake up all alone and call my phone and listen to it ring ring ring ring While you've been drinking this ship's still sinking But bottoms up, here's to goodbye Ba ba da ba ba, ba da da da bye bye 2x Bottoms up Sayonara, how are ya? Never mind I really can't believe we wasted so much time Stay forever. Ha! Whatever Bon voyage Adios, baby Here's to goodbye Ba ba da ba ba, ba da da da bye bye Come on! Raise your glass You can kiss my ass Bottoms up, here's to goodbye

I’ve been searchin’ for somethin’ But I keep comin’ up with nothin’ I’m walkin’ in circles Dancin’ alone Sittin’ here waitin’ on that song to hit the radio Watch your back girl you know what’s comin’ It feels like fallin’ in love You better watch your back now You know it’s “here we go again, here we go again” I’ve been runnin’ forever You say you wanna haunt me, but you’re not that clever I’m walkin’ in circles Dancin’ alone Sittin’ here waitin’ on that song to hit the radio Watch your back girl you know what’s comin’ It feels like fallin’ in love You better watch your back now You know it’s “here we go again, here we go again” Everybody’s searchin’ for somethin’ Everybody’s searchin’ for somethin’, that we can’t find Watch your back girl you know what’s comin’ It feels like fallin’ in love You better watch your back now You know it’s “here we go again, here we go again”

Far Cry 03:37
You were gonna change the world She was gonna be your girl You’re longing for the youth of your dreams Everything works out fine But you gotta believe it At the end of the day we’re just boys and girls In this big bad world It’s a big bad world You’re a far cry, far cry From what you thought you’d be You’re a far cry, but for cryin’ out loud just breathe You’re a far cry, far cry From the one thought you’d be You’re a far cry, but for cryin’ out loud just breathe That hot summer sun turns cold Memories fade to gold And you lost what you wanted most The life you left behind Are you running out of time As they say where there’s a will there’s a way It’s just one of those days You’re gonna be ok You’re a far cry, far cry From what you thought you’d be You’re a far cry, but for cryin’ out loud just breathe You’re a far cry, far cry From the one thought you’d be You’re a far cry, but for cryin’ out loud just breathe All those moments missed That chance that dance that kiss You’ve got to let them fade away All the love that’s left What has not happened yet Imagine everything you’re yet to see You’re a far cry, far cry From what you thought you’d be You’re a far cry, but for cryin’ out loud just breathe You’re a far cry, far cry From the one thought you’d be You’re a far cry, but for cryin’ out loud just breathe

Not just any other day The slate was polished clean Playing nice but gonna roll those dice At every opportunity Do you believe She thought she had the courage but she bottled it again When you don’t believe in meant to be but you believe in where you’ve been Tempting fate but it’s too late You need a flame in the dark, a match and a spark The light that guides you home Some proof that you’re not alone When you know it’s a sin but you do it again And you hope that no one knows But the devil made the deal and you crossed your fingers it was real in hope that no one knows And so it goes He lost everything when he bet it all On a hunch in OKC 2 ex-wives, that casino life A slave to his routine Can you believe He was lookin’ for a hero but he just needed a friend A change of heart and a brand new start One more chance to try again He needed a win. We all need a win You need a flame in the dark, a match and a spark The light that guides you home Some proof that you’re not alone When you know it’s a sin but you do it again And you hope that no one knows But the devil made the deal and you crossed your fingers it was real in hope that no one knows And so it goes We all fall down At the end of our rope The deal goes down And the credits roll

Breathe in deep and let it go If it's gonna rain, then let it snow They wait in the wings expecting nothing less than everything Dig your heels in head up high The sweet relief of getting by Break the circle because today's the day You wanted more We all want more This the sound of the chances that you missed This is the sound of hope and happiness This is the sound of letting it all go This is the sound of losing all control This is the sound of remembering This is the sound of remembering And to me this is everything All those hymns that you forgot All those things that you were not You gave in to all those sins that you were warned about Stand your ground and stand up tall They may think they know it all Break the circle because today's the day This is the sound of the chances that you missed This is the sound of hope and happiness This is the sound of letting it all go This is the sound of losing all control This is the sound of remembering This is the sound of remembering And to me this is everything This the sound of those who came before This is “we’re not gonna take it anymore” This is the sound of letting it all go This is the sound of losing all control This is the sound of remembering This is the sound of remembering And to me this is everything

Let You Go 03:29
I loved you but I let you go Disrespected in my own home And I deserve so much more Than you can give me Sometimes you gotta stand up tall What a fool I must have been to fall As someone who’s loved and lost I’d rather not love at all You can’t escape love with a cape I’m gonna love you like a superhero Whatever it takes, a love for always I loved you but I let you go I got a love and a feelin’ I’m breakin’ down walls and bustin’ through ceilings I got a love and a feelin’ I’m breakin’ down walls and bustin’ through ceilings I gotta love I loved you but I let you go Because I would rather be alone Than waste my love on someone Who just gives it away You can’t escape love with a cape I’m gonna love you like a superhero Whatever it takes, a love for always I loved you but I let you go I got a love and a feelin’ I’m breakin’ down walls and bustin’ through ceilings I got a love and a feelin’ I’m breakin’ down walls and bustin’ through ceilings I gotta love L.O.V.E. you ain’t got nothin’ on me (repeat) I got a love and a feelin’ I’m breakin’ down walls and bustin’ through ceilings I got a love and a feelin’ I’m breakin’ down walls and bustin’ through ceilings I gotta love

So Gone 03:36
So far gone I’m just wasting space I forgot my name and I lost my place I’ve been so gone, for so long I gotta get back home to the walls I know Lay it down and then let it go In my own way, may own way You You wanna save me You think you can save my soul But I’m too far gone I I’m going my own way! I don’t need to be saved I’m starting over today I know the winding road is still gonna turn Just as the cup overflows and those bridges burn Yeah believe it & just leave it please When all the love that’s left seems to be runnin’ behind And the whole damn world has lost its mind Release me You gotta let me go You You wanna save me You think you can save my soul But I’m too far gone I I’m going my own way! I don’t need to be saved I’m starting over today

We’re all fightin’ the good fight Lost but still on time I was drinkin’ with someone new last night Down deep in a bottle of somethin’ Both lookin’ for a hand to hold It’s like girl vs. monster but damn this bed is cold When getting better don’t come cheap Runnin’ high on time but low on speed When the drugs don’t work like Ashcroft said I’ll be home alone lyin’ in my bed It’s another wasted day like all the ones before Uninspired, almost ok, and bored I’ve got just enough But not quite what I need I’ll be blowin’ through and wanting more When getting better don’t come cheap Runnin’ high on time but low on speed When the drugs don’t work like Ashcroft said I’ll be home alone lyin’ in my bed

Same Page 03:15
Follow your heart, do you Just as long as you do what i tell you to Let me go, set me free Just as long as you stay here with me Are we on the same page? Ha ha ha I think we’re reading a completely different book Be yourself, stay real But you gotta ignore all those things you feel Wear your heart on your sleeve But dress it up for the songs you sing Are we on the same page? Ha ha ha I think we’re reading a completely different book
12.
The days get longer but the years are flyin’ by Lookin’ for creative ways to occupy my mind Hoping for adventure but adventure never calls And my mind wanders from the summer to the fall I can't God knows I won't Stop it now I won't stop now I've got reasons Yeah I've got plenty love enough I've been around this world To prove I've got the stuff I can't I won't no I refuse to stop it now I've got the where and when if only I knew how I can't God knows I won't Stop it now I won't stop now Just breathe In and out Don't stop now I won't stop now
