Tiffany Just one of those records that you thank your lucky stars that you've found. Instant love on the first listen, didn't take a whole lot for me to be drawn to this album. If you dig From Indian Lake's 'Able Bodies' or HRVRD's 'From the Bird's Cage', extra geddit. Favorite track: Bad Thoughts.

Sebastion "BranriR" For When You're Falling Backwards is Rome Hero Foxes in refined and polished fashion. Nailing their strengths well in both their songwriting and sound. It's a captivating ride from beginning to end and I'm glad I took a chance on this album. A year later and this still remains my personal favorite album of 2016 Favorite track: The Cold.

Track Name: Falling Out
I'm giving up on you
This time I won't let you break me
Not giving in again has been stamped upon my forehead
But it's easy to forget
When we're standing hand in hand
I know that I have to let you go

Cause if i don't, i know that we'll be falling out
I find comfort in the ground, I find comfort in you

Crossed the line, knocked me down breathless
Left behind, tell me are we falling out
Please don't mess around
Careful now, love is not worth this
Can't forgive, tell me are you happy now
That he felt you down

And I think it's for the best
If we kept our bodies separate
But I can't escape your skin
Your hell is my addiction
So what's left but my regret and all your bad intentions
And i hate that i don't know
That if i would've stayed would we be falling out
And you wanna tie me down
Try and keep me in the ground

Crossed the line, knocked me down breathless
Left behind, tell me are we falling out
Please don't mess around
Careful now, love is not worth this
Can't forgive, tell me are you happy now
That he felt you down

Trust meant lust and I can't take it
These bad thoughts you can't erase them
Smash my head against the pavement
Just leave my mind and take my patience

I'm pulling out my teeth
To show you how it feels
Cause this is what I've feared
You in another's skin
Trust meant lust and I can't take it
These bad thoughts you can't erase them
Smash my head against the pavement
Just leave my mind and take my patience
Track Name: Hunters
And lately I've been having these nightmares
About these eyeless creatures that could still stare into your soul
And I can't help but have them
It's a little bit more than inevitable

And so I walk along the halls, shivering cold

And there's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can say
I'm locked out of my own mind
A prisoner to my brain
Your brain

And lately I've been having these day dreams
And yeah it's all about the demons living inside me
And I won't ever catch them
I'm a little bit more than inevitable

And so i run along the halls, shivering cold
Yeah cause I know they're waiting
Yeah they're just waiting in the wall

And there's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can say
I'm locked out of my own mind
A prisoner to my brain
Your brain
Track Name: Two Friends, Three Days
If you said that you were fine, is that what you really meant
I wish I could've been there screaming
Don't do it, it's not worth it
But there was nothing I could do to change your mind
The least you could've done for me was sat goodbye
Goodbye

Why'd you have to go
Why'd you have to go
I should've known, I should've known
My heart is torn, you took my soul
Yeah I miss you so, more than you know
Tell me
Why can't you just stay
Why can't you just stay
Just another day, just another day
It never had to be this way, had to be this way
I wish it all to go away, all to go away

You came into my life and left without a greeting
Laughing about the good times sure as fuck beats grieving
About a lost soul, a lost friend
And if you're still out there
Could you answer me these questions

Why'd you have to go
Why'd you have to go
I should've known, I should've known
My heart is torn, you took my soul
Yeah I miss you so, more than you know
Tell me
Why can't you just stay
Why can't you just stay
Just another day, just another day
It never had to be this way, had to be this way
I wish it all to go away, all to go away
Track Name: Tied Down
And oh but if you keep me tied down
So tight that I can't breathe
What will happen when I'm gone and will you miss me
You miss me
If you just let me lie down
So low that i can't see
I will find the strength to move on from what's missing me

Because all i wanted to be was someone
Never to be so far from everyone that tries to reach me
And it's so hard living a life you can't keep
Biting your tongue when you got no teeth
I am not a human being like i pretend to be

What if the fire starts to fire starts to die down
And we both burn slowly out
Will it spark again or will we let it die now
It die now
How can we keep this love alive if you don't break down all the walls
You keep your heart locked on the inside
Don't let the fire die, don't leave me outside

Because all i wanted to be was someone
Never to be so far from everyone that tries to reach me
And it's so hard living a life you can't keep
Biting your tongue when you got no teeth
I am not a human being like i pretend to be
Track Name: The Great Hall
And all the darkness creeping in
I never needed to see it
And all the doors that i hid it in
Wasn't enough to keep it a secret
And so i walk straight into the hall that's just as cold as the morning after
And that's when I see her, that's when she sees me too

Haunted by an open door
You're running through the halls begging for more
Faith can lie and love can fall
When you're running down the staircase in the dark

And all the sunlight taunting me
I never wanted to see it
And all the drugs I was buried in
Was always enough to keep me from sleeping
And so i measure all my walls and keep my head down to the floor
And that's when i hear it, oh that familiar roar

Haunted by an open door
You're running through the halls begging for more
Faith can lie and love can fall
When you're running down the staircase in the dark

And all the endless halls and the same damn turns
I swear to god I'm being followed by the creatures we are hunting
All these shifts are so exhausting
And all the distance, no insulation, no one around me
And all my faith that's now depleted
And all the voices in my head
Track Name: Bad Thoughts
Well now stay if you're gonna stay
But if you leave, you should really tell me
So i know that you mean it and you won't come back
If you're walking away, don't you dare look back
You say that you're running
Yeah you say that you're running away
So why do you keep looking back
Yeah why do you keep coming back

And now you're just another thought gone bad in my head
Another friend down when the next one's dead
Don't you know, girl that was long ago
And now it's just another night spent alone in my bed
Trying to get what you have said out of my god damn head
I don't know what to do anymore

And I said that I'd never care
About how you were never there
But the truth comes out and I'm alone and scared
The truth is good but the truth's never fair
I said that I'd never yeah I said that I'd never feel this way
But the feelings coming back and my heart's under attack

And now you're just another thought gone bad in my head
Another friend down when the next one's dead
Don't you know, girl that was long ago
And now it's just another night spent alone in my bed
Trying to get what you have said out of my god damn head
I don't know what to do anymore

Oh x348639295759

And now you're just another thought gone bad in my head
Another friend down when the next one's dead
Don't you know, girl that was long ago
And now it's just another night spent alone in my bed
Trying to get what you have said out of my god damn head
I don't know what to do anymore
Track Name: A Note For My Departure
I tried my best, I tried my best to stay
But all the things they said still runs inside my head
Just know I tried my best to stay
But the demons get stronger everyday

Lately I've been feeling like my body's slowly fading
There's still nothing I can do
There's still nothing I can say
And strangely I will start to feel like I am suffocating
Cause when I stand out in the sun, I can still feel myself shivering

And if you'd ask, I'd say it's getting cold
So cold that I can see my breathe fade and nothing more
Nothing more to cause a front on why I can't let go
Let go and I will surely fall where no one goes
All the ghosts that follow me into my sleep and dreams
And I'll scream get away, get away from me
But how could you hear what you can't see
All I know is that the demons are consuming me until I'm nothing

If there's no reason to stop, let's keep this party going
We'll go and show the kids who think that life is boring

And they keep calling my name
And I'm hearing everything
Track Name: The Cold
Just say it like you mean it
Cause I know that you had never meant a god damn thing
You've been hiding under bed sheets for far too long
And this could be the reason why I'm always so god damn cold
I'm always looking for someone, anyone to warm my bones
Come warm my bones

I'm not the same that you left me
I've changed almost completely
Now it's spring and I'm still stuck in the fall
And all i want it to be breathing the air that's always leaving my lungs like every person I loved
And if god could ever be there
I would never feel so angry at the world as it continues to turn
If he just gave me all the things I deserve

And I'll say it like I'm leaving
Cause if i did I know you'd never even notice me
We've been crawling on the dark streets to hide from the day

I'm not the same that you left me
I've changed almost completely
Now it's spring and I'm still stuck in the fall
And all i want it to be breathing the air that's always leaving my lungs like every person I loved
And if god could ever be there
I would never feel so angry at the world as it continues to turn
If he just gave me all the things I deserve
Track Name: For When You're Falling Backwards
And why does this love have to hurt so bad
I never got a real answer from anyone out here anyway
But i tried and tried again to find it by myself
And all i found since then was silence and constant unhappiness

Why do i think like this
When will i ever find happiness
How could you live like this
When all the walls you built are always caving in

Why can't you love me like i love you
All of the heartbreak, still no virtues
Cause all I've done is fuck things up
And I'm sorry I can't let you leave me
Life is a door and outside's freezing
So i don't know if i can take the cold without you there

And why do you have to run away
I never thought that i would be here begging you to stay
So i lied and lied again saying I'd change for you
And nothing ever changed about me
Cause all you made me feel was unwanted

Why do i think like this
When will I ever find happiness
How could you live like this
When all the walls you built are never caving in

Why can't you love me like i love you
All of the heartbreak, still no virtues
Cause all I've done is fuck things up
And I'm sorry I can't let you leave me
Life is a door and outside's freezing
So i don't know if i can take the cold without you there

How could i ever see clear when my sight's gone red
Some nights I swear that god is evil and the devil is my only friend
When does the heartbreak end
When will I ever be whole again
And if i sacrifice my own for the people i love
Will they love me back cause when you don't it really fucks me up
God tell me what comes next
If i never sleep again, will i still wake up with a hole in my chest
Track Name: All I've Ever Been
And oh darling, do forgive
For all i've ever been and all i ever wasn't
I was tired, I was torn, I was angry, and I was numb
But you were there and weren't shown cause I was blinded by my own

I hope you feel my breathe on you neck when you're listening to this one
I hope your heart explodes and you're constantly gasping for oxygen
And it's not cause i hate you, it's better off to leave it
Than constantly turning back to run for something you can't keep up with
There are wars in the words you say and I can't beat it
There's hope in the love we lost but we can't keep it
So put down your armor, darling I'll stop shooting
If you promise to always love me like you mean it
I don't need it but i do

And it's funny how we've grown so far away
From all the little words that never got to have their say
So what better place to tell you than right here
It'll be the ringing in your ears and everybody else's
How i tried to hold you tightly but you always slipped away
And when you fucked up all your chances
You ran back saying you're sorry

I hope you feel my breathe on you neck when you're listening to this one
I hope your heart explodes and you're constantly gasping for oxygen
And it's not cause i hate you, it's better off to leave it
Than constantly turning back to run for someone you can't keep up with
There are wars in the words you say and I can't beat it
There's hope in the love we lost but we can't keep it
So put down your armor, darling I'll stop shooting
If you promise to always love me like you mean it

I don't need you anymore
No more, yeah

And what was left in the past
Will someday find me again in your eyes
And all that we could've been
Won't ever haunt me again when I see you this time
But I hope you're doing well
