"Ten Years Older" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
One day you woke up ten years older
Taken prisoner like a soldier
You left your home for what seemed noble
Give anything to do it over

Alone now, there must be some other way
To control how your anger turns into rage

Cause I know, I know
Life's so unfair
We used to escape under the brilliant glare
It's the high that conquered you
Stole the soul from the friend that we knew

Well everyday it's something else
Divert the blame from yourself
Cause you can never do wrong
Feels so good, so good
To be alone now

For too long now
You've been misunderstood
All alone now
Go and save yourself

Cause I know, I know
Life's so unfair
We used to escape under the brilliant glare
It's the high that conquered you
Stole the soul from the friend that we knew

Well are the rumors true?
Did your family rescue you?
Cause you pushed everyone else away
I've heard so many things
Don't know what to think
Did you really try to put it all to an end?

Cause I know, I know
Life's so unfair
We used to escape under the brilliant glare
It's the high that conquered you
Stole the soul from the friend that we knew
Stole the soul from the friend that we knew
Stole the soul from the friend that we knew
Stole the soul
