Time That Remains

Written by Three Days Grace, B. Stock, Chris Wallin. EMI Blackwood Music (Canada) ltd.

Don't do as I have done
Win where I have lost, have where I have none
Don't let your demons drive
They'll just steer you wrong, you won't get out alive

Cause you can't un-live the pain
You can't rewind to yesterday
You might never find your place in the time that remains
So if tomorrow never comes
From living fast and dying young
And hope the best is yet to come in the time that remains for you

Don't get me wrong
The mistakes I've made along the way made me who I am today
The time is gonna come
You'll wake up and realize just how fast your life goes by



Expectations

Written by Three Days Grace, B. Stock, Chris Wallin, EMI Blackwood Music (Canada) ltd.

Baby, innocent, one day gonna be decadent
Prom queen, Miss America, in the back seat in a pair of cuffs
Sixteen, little runaway, running from the five-0, and got away
From the small town with no scene, looking for a shot on the big screen

Expectations go to hell

Not so innocent on the on the streets hustling
Never be Miss America in the back seat of a Celica
Crashing with a deadbeat, livin' large on a love seat
In a small town, no scene, turns out it was nothing but a pipe dream

Expectations go to hell

Rich girl wannabe, bought a quick pick for the lottery
Watching TV with her boyfriend, fell asleep, left the ticket on the nightstand
He stayed awake to see the ball drop, turned it way down, she never woke up
Grabbed the keys to her car in the back lot, threw a shot of Jack back
Left with the jackpot

Expectations go to hell
Prom Queen Miss America in the backseat in a pair of cuffs



Broken Glass

Written by Three Days Grace, B. Stock, Don Gilmore EMI Blackwood Music (Canada) ltd.

All we are is broken glass
Thrown to the floor, we were never meant to last
And all we are are empty shells
Try to pick us up, you're gonna cut yourself

We marched the streets at night
Looking for a thrill, looking for a fight
It was the first day of the rest of our lives
We were fast, never gonna die
Lighting up the highway 45
We didn't know it couldn't go on forever

We fought to rule the world
Not knowing just how fragile we really were
Like it was the first day of the rest of our lives
Then the bricks began to fall
And we could see the cracks along the wall
We didn't know it couldn't go on forever

We believed that we could go on forever



Unbreakable Heart

Written by Three Days Grace, B. Stock., Don Gilmore, Chris Tompkins, Rob Hawkins, EMI Blackwood Music (Canada) ltd.

Hijacked when you weren't looking
Behind your back people are talking
Using words to cut you down to size
You want to fight back it's building inside you
Holding you up, taking you hostage
Yeah it's worth fighting for

They'll try to take your pride, try to take your soul
They'll try to take all the control
They'll look you in the eyes, fill you full of lies
Believe me they're going to try
So when you're feeling crazy and things fall apart
Listen to your head, remember who you are
You're the one, you're the unbreakable heart
You're the one, you're the unbreakable heart
You're the one, You're the one

Hijacked when you weren't looking
Behind your back people are talking
Using words to cut you down to size
You want to fight back, you're out in the open
You're under attack but your spirits not broken
You know it's worth fighting for

Don't look them in the eyes, believe me they're gonna try
To fill you up with lies
