Sunset Pink 03:23
Something's off can't find the softness in your gaze you're in the tunnel Maybe it's my watch that stopped maybe my time got off and I'll catch you soon Ahh - caught up in the static I'm waiting on a word to cut through and let me in to you You look up put down your coffee cup meet my eyes a light in the tunnel let's take a walk hold my hand around the block and hear our feet beat out the time step by step till we align Ahh - caught up in the static I'm waiting on a word to cut through and let me in to Ahh - I would wait for you stumbling home, you were never alone I would rise and fall each time with you You say I want my mind back I don't want time to slip No pill no drink just the sun set pink on the ships out in the harbor See them blazing gold, like it was all foretold your hand in mine feels stronger

Crushin' 03:57
Coming up slow just like the bend in the river Baby you know I always get stuck in the winter Waiting on spring to give me a sign A wink from the bluebirds a nod from the pines Blink your eyes it’s summertime and I’m still frozen Waiting to speak my mind Can’t pin it down just like the dance in your shadow Spin me around - if you take the lead I can follow Straight to the floor to the part I do best Bluffing and keeping my cards close to the chest It’s a waiting game the way I play no way to tell you That you’ve been on my mind Much of the time Tell was cowardly never asking how you felt about me Was I living in a fantasy? Hung up on possibility But oh my god, oh my babe you looked so pretty In that golden hour of uncertainty You were everything and nothing to me Everything and nothing to me You were everything and nothing to me You were nobody You’re coming home back to the place where I knew ya This time I know, I know the words will come clearer Plenty of springs have come and gone I know I’m the one that’s been leading us on Now I know my heart and I know my mind I’m going to tell you That you’ve been on my mind All of this time

Nobody Knew 03:34
An individual cage Stuck inside yourself, you’re in a rage How is anyone supposed to behave? When the days are dark And the nights are few and far apart Nobody knew it would it this hard If I could be with you then I Wouldn’t waste a minute, No I’d never take a moment of your time Want you to be with it but I’ve Come to see it’s different, Yes I’ve Come to realize I’m out of line Always out of line So sensitive Your opinion is invalid How can anyone go off grid? When the days are dark And the nights are hard to tell apart Nobody knew it would hit this hard If I could be with you then I Wouldn’t waste a minute, No I’d never take a moment of your time Want you to be with it but I’ve Come to see it’s different, Yes I’ve Come to realize I’m out of line Some have strength to remain But I’m not that way Tiny space, time to waste Nobody knew, nobody knew Nobody knew

Thank You 03:43
Dark, moonless night The light so hard to find All I did was cry You brought me back to life I was so confused The day I came to you Brokenhearted, bruised I had nothing to lose I just want to thank you For picking me up when I was down Cause the love that you give me Is getting my feet back on the ground The ground

Sugarcoat 04:21
Was I wrong? Or did I do right Bringing up another thing that’s sure to make us cry In these hard times There’s no shortage in supply of stuff to keep us up at night But I couldn’t let it sit there in the silence that you made As you took your time looking for the perfect word or phrase I don’t need your poetry I don’t want a sugarcoat I just want the words caught in your throat I don’t always wanna be the one who’s asking What is wrong babe Tell me did you think that you were doing us a favor keeping everything inside Let is out babe show your shadows to the light I will see what I don’t hear My imagination will confirm my wildest fears I might toss and turn all night wondering if you are alright It doesn’t matter that you’re right here Cause I know this feeling Baby I’ve been here before If it wasn’t you then it was someone else who I adored Who tried to hide Covered pain up with a smile Insisted everything was fine I don’t always wanna be the one who’s asking What is wrong babe Tell me did you think that you were doing us a favor keeping everything inside Let is out babe show your shadows to the light

Baltimore 04:08
Hi, I am home! Oh, you’re talking to yourselves. Did you notice I am here? Or is it someone else you’re Ignoring next to me? Is it my nervous energy? Nobody means to be mean, We’re just Self-thinking Maybe when I walk through the door, All that anybody sees is what came before My hello Love, I am here! Only fifty per cent, The other half is in my head It isn’t fair that you just get the rest Of my toxic energy Whenever you’re lying next to me I never wanted to be mean to myself Most of the time, it feels so easy Maybe when I walk through the door, All that my love can see is want stands before him And that is all I am, I am nothing but a shell Moving through the day to day, Wishing that I was someone else Hi through the air, I’m calling you from Baltimore I have been working on the way that I use my brain Restore the wasted energy Funneling out of you and out of me I know that I can be obscene So tell me when to stop thinking

Pages 03:42
Reading my journal the words hit like popcorn kernels Violent surprise The lines paint a picture A brutal war and we the victors Love on our side Or so I’d hoped Back in July Feel the heat feel it coming down Tangled up and we’re running round Don’t know where it is we’re going babe But I like moving with you I like moving with you Feel the heat feel it coming down Tangled up and we’re running round Don’t know where I’m going Don’t know what I’m doing Don’t know what With you gone from my bed and time as a lens Oh I can’t say I understand the feelings I had for you then Flipping through pages I’m searching for traces of what was to come The fall and the winter The lives that we splintered with the beat of our drum Played to the tune of I need someone Someone who sees who I’ve become Someone like you Someone like you Someone like you With you gone from my bed and time as a lens Oh I See the end from the start how it’d all fall apart Oh I Oh I Oh I can’t say I understand the feelings I had for you then

T.O.B.S. 03:16
Hey, how have you been these days? It’s been a long, long time Feels like a world away I still think of the times we had Golden memories I put them in my past And I’m letting go of me and you Each day that passes I’m someone new Your face was the one that I knew so well Better than my own You know I could always tell Strange, to think of you on your own I get so sad sometimes But I know you’re not alone I don’t wanna cry anymore Told you I’m done keeping score Oh I gotta let you go with all the love in my heart I’m making room for a new start

At the party talking bout you again Telling stories from back when We used to be friends who would talk Through the night or on long walks Now the year’s are piled up like rocks And I can’t hear your voice Where’d you go love and where are you now? Thought I saw you in town But there’s no way it could have been you You have cut me off for good I have listened to your silence you’re not asking to be found You left five years ago and you don’t look back You never say hello to the friends you had Guess we will never know but I have to ask Why did you let us go? And are you ever coming back? How many times have I gone over what you said The story’s at its end but I keep coming back to a line Made significant with time You said, “I don’t seem to keep friends long” I guess you were right I guess you were right You left five years ago and you don’t look back You never say hello to the friends you had Guess we will never know but I have to ask Why did you let us go? And are you ever coming back?
