"What You Can't Control (Demo)" as written by Christopher Petrosino, Robert Mccurdy, Jessica Leplon and Justin Wiley....
I paint the walls a perfect color
Then you go and tear them down
My garden of love grew with all its wonder
Then you go an dig it out

Well what can I say?
You keep bringing the gray
And you’re making it hard to see clear
It’s been dull for so long
And ready for sun
You are no longer welcome here

You say you’re sorry but I know
Given the chance you’d do it again
So take your promises and go
You can’t love
What you can’t control

I’m building these walls just to keep you away
And you go and tear them down
Well what can I say?
You keep bringing the gray
And I don’t want you around

You say you’re sorry but I know
Given the chance you’d do it again
So take your promises and go
You can’t love
What you can’t control

You say you’re sorry but I know
Given the chance you’d do it again
So take your promises and go
You can’t love
What you can’t control

Well the grass is greener
On the other side its true
And there’s just no more room for me and you

Don’t say you’re sorry when I go
You had your chance
You did it again
So take your promises and go
You can’t love what you can’t control

You say you’re sorry but I know
Given the chance you’d do it again
So take your promises and go
You can’t love
What you can’t control

You say you’re sorry but I know
Given the chance you’d do it again
So take your promises and go
You can’t love
What you can’t control

Well the grass is greener on the other side it’s true
There’s just no more room
For me and you
