Track Name: Tired
I try to remind you
Of all we've been through
I tried to surprise you
But somehow you knew
I summoned the angels
Of snow fever fire
I spoke to your demons
And let them be my guide

I'm tired
Yes in tired

I prayed for forgiveness
Though I don't know my knees
I spoke from the basements
Read the roots of the trees
I tip toed down highways
Through the dark sleeve of night
And I know where I wronged you
And you know it was right

And I'm tired
Yes I'm tired

And I feel
In the shadows
For all I used to know
And it hides
In the marrow
Of our burdens and bones

And I'm tired
Yes I'm tired
Track Name: Crave
Can we drink can we sink further into the ether we go

I'm close to night's misleading
Old papers I've been reading
Jaundiced, ripped and needing
To find something that fails to bore me
While you ignore me

Cause I want to leave this
And I do not need this
No I don’t want to leave this
But I do not need this

With all that misfit glory
I love when you sensor me
I crave a wave of options
Under the flood I'll watch them

Cause I want to leave this
And I do not need this
No I don’t want to leave this
But I do not need this

My pride was tied and tempted
Been tried and tired and emptied
How long can you resent me
Your silence answers plenty

Cause I want to leave this
And I do not need this
No I don’t want to leave this
But I do not need this
Track Name: Language
You're quiet as the setting sun
But morning light's only begun
I'll tip toe to toe with you
And we won’t wake the little one
Won’t wake no one

I feel I know you by now
But how well can one know a cloud
That drifts in and out again
Don’t know when it’s comin round

Love is a language
No one can read
No one should want
What all of us need

We're fragile as boys with their bones
Broken as their hearts and homes
You hold me like smoke
Promise you won’t let me go

I need you if you don't know yet
And now I need you to forget
Let’s run and never reach the end
And chase the sun before it sets
Track Name: Reverie
There's a hymn in the winter
mantra in the night
There's a thorn and a splinter
I'll bleed my alibi
And I try
To keep my thoughts in line
It's a lie
I believe more every time

And I sigh
Lets get high
Forget why
Loves a lie

There's a burgundy ocean
Sangria that I sip
Let's go drown in the moment
Take another trip
And I know
There's no where safe to go
All these eyes
Catch and capture souls

There's a cold
On the evening
A shiver and a chill
See my mist that I'm breathing
Cigarettes and will
And I see
You lying next to me
In a dream
I'm wrapped in reverie
Track Name: Hired Hands
Hired hands
Uninspired hands
Tired hands how they
Know your land
Hills and valleys
River bed
Been a long day can I rest

Pour a drink
I don't
Wanna think
Wanna wash this dark day away
Turn the news down it's killing me
How much sorrow can you see

Hold me
As close
I need
To know
We’ll be
Alright
Survive
Escape this long night

All I have
Left is love
And I need it to
Be enough
Honey hold me with
All your might
Don't leave me alone tonight
Don’t leave me without your light
Track Name: Nightfall
So it goes
Another broken home
Another open road I'm
A little bit confused
So easy to get used
To when you have some day light as your guide
But by nightfall
I'll find you
I'm tracing all your hints and your silence
I close my eyes and listen
To this
Sentence
We serve so well

Either way
It's time to make my way
The sky a shade of gray I
Am accustomed to
It's been more bleak than blue
Til it brings me to you
Why am I so sure that by
The nightfall
I'll find you
I'm tracing all your hints and your silence
I close my eyes and listen
To this sentence
We serve so well

I hope that you can hear this piece of truth
Baby by the night I will be with you
Been too long
Alone
Stay strong I’m coming home

Oh by nightfall
I'll find you
I'm tracing all your hints and your silence
I close my eyes and listen
To this
Sentence
We serve so well by nightfall
I'll find you
I'm tracing all your hints and your silence
I close my eyes and listen
To this
Sentence
We serve so well
Track Name: Dark West
Strange
Gray winter days
Bring me a breath
Of you
And I
Remember that night
Recall the sky
The second it left
With you
And truth
I've caught you in dreams
A place we found peace
That we've never seen
Love isn't enough
When push comes to shove
It’s all I think of

Lines
We left unsaid
With words we knew all
Too well
To hell
With all of this time
Layered and dense
That finally unveiled herself
Oh well
We came to our end
Beat, broke and bent
So don't try again
You’ll wear all your wounds
You’ll leave with a few
And I’ll have mine too

It’s hard
To say
Goodbye
Heaven
Knows
We’ve tried
And tried and tried
It’s hard
To live
A lie
So hard
My love
Goodnight

We're
In the dark west
Where no one has been before
These shores
That I don’t know
Quite where to go
But memories will open doors
I hope
It’s all been a blur
A curse and a cure
For what I'm not sure
The dream we both know
An ebb and a flow
Two hearts in a war

It’s hard
To say
Goodbye
Heaven
Knows
We’ve tried
And tried and tried
It’s hard
To live
A lie
So hard
My love
Goodnight
Track Name: Best Without Me
I've been out walking
Walking down figure 8s
The cold Cul-de-sacs of night
Out around love and hate
And I tried to steer us clear
Clear of our fate
But when you're headin south and fast
The hour is always late

And I
Don’t see
How you can be
At your best without me
No can’t see
How you can be
Your best without me

I've been out drinking
Tracing the shades at night
Hours you can't get back
The wrongs you can never right
Everyone tells you
Love is a weary road
But there's no way to know for yourself
Til you've walked alone in the cold

And I
Don’t see
How you can be
At your best without me
No I can’t see
How you can be
Your best without me

bridge
And I have my doubts in the night
I find my fevers to fight
I see enough wrong in what’s right
Still find my reason to try
Sleep has been passing me by
And if you look deep in my eyes
If I’m awake it’s a lie
This may be the season we die

And I've been out shouting
Going hoarse with the moon
Harmonize with the wolves
Sing songs and lick my wounds
Night's gonna take me on
Night never stood a chance
I've been out making friends
Bare feet in broken glass

And I
Don’t see
How you can be
At your best without me
No can’t see
How you can be
Your best without me
Track Name: Blank Page
There's
A blank
Page staring
Empty of the ink
The thoughts in which I sink
Of space
We've been sharing
Only wish that you
Could care less than I do

Cause there's a love that's homeless
How I wish that
I wish that I could know less
Feels so hopeless
Once you notice
All that's tugging at your focus
At your focus

Armies
Always
Marching
They hold no regard
For hardships of the heart
The fires
Been starting
I want to know there's more
Than fighting constant war

Cause there's a love that's homeless
How I wish that
I wish that I could know less
Feels so hopeless
Once you notice
All that's tugging at your focus

Do do do do do do

All
Our
Fevers
Falling from the heights
Come crawling through the night
Please
Believers
Show me how you see
A brighter light than me

Cause there's a love that's homeless
How I wish that
I wish that I could know less
Feels so hopeless
Once you notice
All that's tugging at your focus
At your focus
(octave up)
Cause there's a love that's homeless
How I wish that
I wish that I could know less
Feels so hopeless
Once you notice
All that's tugging at your focus
At your focus
Track Name: Quiet
I've been dreaming dreams of the past
Nothing was as it seemed
I knew that it wouldn't last
Wasn't all it should be
Living like I thought you knew best
But it wasn't for me
Now you see how far we have regressed
I'm Waking up from this dream

Summon subtle secrets of sleep
Something revealed to me
Those sirens signing softly
Singing this dream gently
And I translate their silent sigh
Told me to wake myself
And look you square right in the eye
And tell you I wish you well

Quiet
All we need is quiet
It’ll be alright my love
Goodnight
All we need is quiet
It’ll be alright my love
Goodnight
