Track Name: Oh No
Oh No
Where’d the day go?
I can’t recall
Was it the winter when I stopped caring?
Or the aptly named fall?

The seasons
They run
They run together
It’s something
About
About the weather

Summer’s not as long
As it used to be when we were young
Oh no

We can’t make a living
Out of constantly forgiving
All the reasons

They run
They run together
It’s something about the weather

The seasons
They run
They run together
It’s something about
About the weather
Track Name: Memories Burn
My head is soaked and saturated
And I can’t let you wring it out
I’ve got to hold on to this feeling

Give me a physical reminder
Of every place you found me in
Where i was lost or loving

Memories burn
Bruises fade

I want to purge all possessions
It’s hard to clean up messes

And if we lose all connections
Will you hold on to me sweetly?

I can make room for this moment
I swear
Track Name: You You You
Every time I walk outside
I look up to the same dark sky

The sun is always hiding behind the same cloud
The one that blocks you out
The one that knocks you out of love

Daily trips and daily grind
Empty pockets and no more time

Mountains of forgiveness for valleys of wrong
When today is yesterday and yesterday is long gone

On my list of things to do
Everything up through number two
Are things in life I have to live through
‘Cause at the top of my list is you

The sun is always shining behind the same clouds
The ones that knocked you out
The ones that block you out from love

I’ve a list of things to do
At the top of the list is you

Every punishment, every bore
Every knife that runs me through
Are all in my way to get to you
All of these things to get to you

You you you
Track Name: Run Like Animals
How am I supposed to go without you
After all this time?
Even though you’re better off without me
I just want to know you’re mine

Remember when we used to run like animals
Burning in the heat?
Now tomorrow when we both wake up
We will both have different needs

I don’t even know how to spend my time
What did I used to do all day?
Is it that I’ve stepped out of a time machine
And I don’t know what to say?

Remember when we used to run like animals
Late into the night?
Now I don’t know how to get you in here
What I say just isn’t right

If you don’t want me
Don’t want to see me
I’ll save my breath and
Blow all the candles out
Track Name: Felt
I could sit here for a year but i couldn’t bear it
To sit here and listen

I could waste the hours hanging on the minute
When you’d glance to catch it

Hey, I swear I felt it that time
When you caught my eye
I didn’t make it up that time

As I sat here waiting for it
Your hand just slipped away
As I sat here waiting for it

Hey, I swear I felt it that time
Track Name: Is There Nothing I Can Do?
Nostalgia filled a hole with delicate dirt
From days gone by
And muddied me with moods that only made you hurt
And made me blind
To every turn and your point-of-view

I need to prove I never had the room
For anyone but you
Please come back
Is there nothing I can do?

Change my face?
Put my faith in you?
Listen hard to your point-of-view?

Please come back
Track Name: More Than They Can Take
There’s no difference between you and me
But I can see spaces
Gaps in the calendar
A catalog of places
I should go and work it out
Shut it down and try to escape
Let me go and work it out
Shut my eyes and lose today

Young hearts are always breaking
From giving more than they can take

Young hearts are always breaking
Forgiving more than they can take
Track Name: When I Was Away
Sewn back together
This patchwork of time
Cover up the holes
Worn through from praying and sleeping

Tripping on bluffed up moments of forgetfulness
With nothing left to cling to
Finding silver thread coating the outside
Of every clouded moment

When I was away
Pinned down by painful regrets replaced by common thread
Lying at the edge
Finding silver thread on every clouded moment
Sewn back together
This patchwork of time

Nothing to patch up just stitches to show
Nothing to patch up just worn through holes.
Track Name: Above The Sea
The fluids that I am under are fine
I am an anchor drifting in brine
Fallen in anger
Twisting my line

The winds are too strong
Pushing you up there and
Dragging me down here
It's taking so long

The winds are so strong

The hot air that I'm using to ride
Out through the window into the deepest night
Is our love up above the sea

Don't care where I'm blowing as long as I feel your line
Twisting my fingers keeping you locked in time
Is our love up above the sea?

The winds are so strong
Pushing you up there and
Dragging me down here
It's taking so long
Is our love up above the sea?
