  • EDEN “Gravity” Listen on Youtube
    • You know everybody talks, girl. And it means nothing ‘till you let it. But if you keep second guessing then there’s only gonna be one end.
    • Now I’ll be fine if you ever ask me.
    • So I been thinking that I think too much.
    • And you say you need me to let this go, but it’s who I am, or am I just losing it.
    • An I’m fighting gravity, defying gravity. I tried but I keep falling, ‘cause falling’s easy, but it only brings you down.
  • EDEN “Wake Up” Listen on Youtube
    • I’m tryna run from our pride
    • ‘Cause you see only what you want to. Your tunnel vision haunts you, and you can’t see what’s wrong when you keep sleeping through the PM, eyes wide open when you’re dreaming.
    • And you’ll feel better when you wake up, taking off your makeup. Sun always seems to wash our fears away, and it’s always shining somewhere.
    • So stay, you’re not what you’re hearing, ‘cause I’ve been watching you changing, and who said you’re one in a million? You’re so much better than that.
  • EDEN “Drugs” Listen on Youtube
    • You don’t know how to let go. Who said this must be all or nothing?
    • ‘Cause I’m a f***ing mess sometimes. But still I could always be whatever you wanted, but not what you needed, especially when you been needing me.
    • And I’ll say what I don’t mean, just ‘cause I wanted, or maybe I need it
    • And I got way too many routes to take to make this all just go away, to find another heart to break. So heartless with the words I say. Just saying what I’m supposed to say, ‘Cause I had nothing for you. I can’t love when I can’t even love myself.
  • EDEN “And” Listen on Youtube
    • This is just another sad song. I can’t deny that I’ve been needing one. And the world is always at fault. And we did nothing, how did we do wrong?
    • And I’m so sorry I can’t find the time, spend all my days over-preoccupied
    • And I know I should try more, but I’ve been so caught in my old small sh*t that I can’t see past the nothing around me
    • But I’ve been trying really f***ing hard not to try so hard, really f***ing hard just to let go. Really f***ing hard not to try so hard. Realize I’ve nowhere left to go
  • EDEN “Rock + Roll” Listen on Youtube
    • But I don’t want the lights to find me when I’m dark and lost, but never on my own
    • Oh, they say you’ll never be alone again, but I don’t think you understand me or what I fear
    • But you could be loved, but I don’t wanna lie to tell myself I’m more than all the mistakes I’ve out-run
    • What are we breathing for if we ain’t living. And I don’t want your love, I just want to feel like I’m still living
    • And the more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you
  • EDEN “XO” Listen on Youtube
    • She’s in love with the concept, as if we’re all just how she imagined
  • EDEN “Circles” Listen on Youtube
    • And if I told you how this story ends, would you change a step you take? And if I could re-live all of my days, I’d live them all the same
    • ‘Cause I’m scared of all that I don’t know. ‘Cause I want it all but all of it ain’t gold
    • That all we are is a light into the darkness; And all we are is time that’s counting down. And all we are is falling through the spaces in between; Endless flight, a lifetime in repeat.
    • Let go, give these ghosts a new home; Let’s bury our past and our fears, and all these bones. Let go, I should’ve seen it long before; ‘Cause this is my life. I will not run in circles. 
  • EDEN “start//end” Listen on Youtube
    • You try to kill it but it won’t stop bleeding, try to forget it but it won’t stop killing you
    • ‘Cause I’ve been looking at the sky to show me where I went wrong, been looking at the sky like someone was looking down. But it keeps raining on me. And I’ve been looking at the sky since I was like 5 years old. Been looking for the stars but it seems like they’re all gone. And the fault’s not ours alone. But I think it’s time to go
    • And I’ve got way too many questions just to try and get it right. ‘Cause I can’t be the one to shrug it off. And I could be the reason that we stay up all night. To be someone, to be someone. And oh, all we’ve got is to try to get it right. But no one told you. That this gon’ hurt, oh no
  • EDEN “wings” Listen on Youtube
    • Nothing I can say that you won’t get wrong, and everybody asks where you’ve gone now.
    • Can you only really want what you don’t have enough? Everything you ever wanted adding up to be the reason you can’t stand it now
    • I hope you find everything you think that you want
    • I’ll be doing fine if you care, ‘cause life is but a dream, only as real as you let it be
  • EDEN “icarus” Listen on Youtube
    • Screams fade and blue, conversations with a smile, though, life invisible. Guess I thought I’d feel better now, anyhow, so now
    • So tell me how you really feel now. Ain’t been asked that in a while. Yet you still hope that they’ll hear you out. Just keep at it, bro, these things always seem to fix themselves somehow. Suck it up, some would kill just to stand where you’re standing now
  • EDEN “lost//found” Listen on Youtube
    • I think I lost myself out somewhere in between, finding out who I am, confusing that with what I dream. And it feels like everyone’s done waiting, so what am I supposed to do?
    • ‘Cause if everyone is gone, I don’t wanna be here. I don’t wanna be left alone
  • EDEN “crash” Listen on Youtube
    • It’s been a few years since you’ve been gone. There’s been a few tears, but that was years and years ago. Yeah, I grew up to be exactly what you wanted. Yeah, I’ve been living out the dream that you dreamt up
    • ‘Cause you are not who you think you are. And I can bend your words, but they say exactly what hurts the most
    • But silence is better than fake laughs
  • EDEN “gold” Listen on Youtube
    • And for a second I thought the world was ending and I couldn’t breathe in
    • So scared of overgrowing youth when it’s not done with you
    • And you can call it what you want, but I call it moving on.
    • And I’m so done with singing words I don’t believe in no more
    • So what are you rushing for? Who said it’s now or never?
    • And if you want you can breathe on your own. This isn’t what I thought but it’s beautiful. Make peace with your mistakes, and they’ll turn gold. Weightless, I let go.
  • EDEN “forever//over” Listen on Youtube
    • Life is just going so quickly, I can’t catch it. I don’t think anyone can.
    • There are no ends, just grays and half-lives. Half time, it’s alright
    • Exhale, we could never be what’s in our heads, so please don’t fade me now
    • It’s cool, we’re used to losing real friends, only ever feeling it in retrospect
    • And we were really breathing, not silhouettes
    • ‘Cause everything is not alright, and we are falling. But that’s just life, without some lows there is no highs. And everything will be okay, though we are all hurting. ‘Cause time flies fast and you know, no pain is forever.
    • Last forever is ridiculous, you think?
  • EDEN “float” Listen on Youtube
    • I can’t find you, but can’t fault you, ‘cause I can get so caught up in my own head
    • I could be what you need girl, if you want me to
  • EDEN “love; not wrong (brave)” Listen on Youtube
    • And I know I’ve been closing myself off, unsure. I know I’ve been real hard to reach, harder to love. And I know it’s tiring, this s**t is getting old.
    • But please, just hold on to me. I’ve played these demons, they’re old to me. Recurring dreams, this is happening, tearing my seams from reality
    • Cause we are more than we’re not, so never fear to feel. Good when everything’s lost, and find some beauty there, ‘cause all we ever are is brave
    • So I won’t go, I’m still living in the middle of a one-way war
    • I can’t fight it but I’m trying to be what you want
    • Becoming more than I think of me
    • These fears in my head, dreams in my bed, they won’t get the best of me
  • EDEN “falling in reverse” Listen on Youtube
    • Come on, what’s the big deal? Nobody’s that heartless!
    • So listen here, I’m the voice in your head. And I can say the words that make you feel scared. So here’s to you, and all the problems that we’ve made. And I know it’s so hard to stay afloat when you make monsters out of thoughts, and you’re dragged under, and everyone in around you is too far away to notice. Your chest start to crash, oh, but it’s alright. Oh, you’ll be alright. So just breathe, it’s almost over. And don’t let the monster in your head become your fears. ‘Cause you can save yourself, you know.
    • So listen here, I know it’s hard. Maybe I can’t do what you want. But I’m just who I am, I’m trying to see what you could need. And I am still here, that voice in your head. And I’ll be there for you, when no one else cares
