Joseph Siemion Sonja is the best track. Inspiring lyrics, upbeat rhythm, lush synths, and I love the ending. Singer has a great voice. Should make more albums. Favorite track: Sonja is Leaving.

Track Name: Easy Friend
I need an easy friend
One that won't let me down
Like you let me down yesterday

I want an easy friend
One with low maintenance
One that I don't have to carry around
24 hours a day

I want a loving friend
One who won't fall in love
With the next person that she sees

I need a loving friend
One with low maintenance
One that I don't have to carry around
24 hours a day

How can you say that you really want to be with me?
When you're trying to count me in as a three
After you dropped me off, you said that you would call.
But I knew deep down, I'd never hear from you again at all
At all.

I need an easy friend
One that won't let me down
Like you let me down yesterday

I want an easy friend
One with low maintenance
One that I don't have to carry around
24 hours a day
Track Name: Sonja is Leaving
Sonja said she's leaving
Going far away
Such hateful words
for such a pretty girl inside

Sonja says she's leaving.
Going away for awhile
Taking her scars and abuse
Try to find her life anew

She's gonna find the one that makes her smile
deep down inside

Sonja's all alone
With her smile and vial of hope
She never found anyone else
But she finally found herself

She's gonna find the one that makes her smile
deep down inside...
Tonight
Track Name: Heard Me Sigh
Maybe you don't know me
Maybe it's time to look past
The forms we thought we knew

When I try to find myself
I look here and everywhere else
Lest in ubiquitous shame
I lose my name

When you comin around again?
I was hoping you'd as me the same
Between the thoughts of my mind
I know you saw the signs
But you never heard me sigh

Maybe you should look past
Maybe it's time to contrast
your sense of feeling alone

When I try to find you
Looking through all you knew
Transcending the fog
Nine inches on a line

When you comin around again?
I was hoping you'd as me the same
Between the thoughts of my mind
I know you saw the signs
But you never heard me sigh

When you comin around again?
I think I thought you were the same
Between the thoughts of my mind
I know you saw the signs
But you never heard me sigh
Track Name: Fading Fast
Won't you come and play with me
Now that I'm on my own
I think I think I found a way
out of the zone

I hope that you'll find their advice is all lies
Sometimes you have to see for yourself

I've seen too many broken dreams
to wait for
The day when I look back,
back with regret

All the things I said
Moments left undone
Feelings never revealed

Don't think that you have time
You'll soon find your days fading fast
In a blink, in a blink of an eye
The river of your life will pass you by

Fraught with distendencies
but at least I'm on my own
Dropped off some old memories
And I think I've found my home

I've seen too many broken dreams to wait for
The day when I look back, back with regret.

All the things I said
Moments left undone
Feelings never revealed

Don't think that you have time
You'll soon find your days fading fast
In a blink, in a blink of an eye
The river of your life will pass you by

Soon you'll find your days fading fast
Doubt and Regret will cast shadows on your life
Dear brother, I hope that you'll see their advice is all lies
All lies, all lies, all lies.
