Track Name: Too Late
Put the past on the fire
Wed the better with a restart
Keep the picture on the wall still
And put your hands on the fallout
Are you holding on the needle or setting fire to your haystack
Greet the mire with a free fall
Reaching for the silhouette

Oh if you ever let go would you let me know

Is it too late to be who we are
be who we were back then

Put the past on the fire
Wed the better with a restart
I’m calling out for settlement
Reaching for the silhouette

Is it too late to be who we are
be who we were back then
Cause I let time alone break up our home
Free the good we know
Is it too late to be who we are
be who we were back then
Track Name: Don't Break
Foolish love slid through my blood
lifted my skin and covered all the good that was so
Break it all, i don’t really want to give it effort anymore
I’ve been pulling on my soul while my mind wages war on
all I knew, breathing anew
I don’t want to take it all from you

Don’t break it all, make it out through your body
Don’t break it all
This is the calling
Don’t take the fall, you are more than you know
Don’t break it all
Don’t let it go

All my lies slid through my eyes
Holed up my sense and buried all the good inside cause
they won’t go, steady in the belly of the bed I know
I’m breaking up my bones but I can’t find their hold up
Track Name: I Can Barely Breathe
Front seat telephone conversations
then we sat quiet, thought racing, the point I’m making is we are not set things
Forever is a childish dream
Front seat, static hum on the station
All my mistakes filled up the space but Emma says I’m getting real good at the small things:
Looking up at life
but I know that she’s lying cause no blood’s red with the wrong love
A simple suture in the pseudonym of long drawn time
The lie is we were alive once in a world so gone

I can barely breathe
I can’t watch you leave here
Face the sky afar
Love is the lonely star hanging over us
Do what we must
I can barely breathe
I can’t watch you leave again

“Don’t be scared”, Emma says with a quick grin
she’s the calling and I’m choking on my word’s
cause I’ve never been alone like this in the arms of a restless love
I don’t want to go but I really don’t know if I can make it to the morning
Track Name: Times Like These
Times like these, they wear on me
Tear my skin from my bones
Times like these they pull on my sinew soul

Times like these, they show when love darkens, am I gone
Between my teeth, no tongue I find
I speak between space in my mind

In the late hour I try to soak the words we spoke in the eyes of the sky
Our pretty died inside the sun and it made them cry
Track Name: Come Home
Fire in the bed of your blood
Fool-less where the heat come from
Who left’s going to love me
Who left’s going to love me now

I slip from the war we shook
Pull up on the tiring good
Who left’s going to love me
Who left’s going to love me now

Let go all you know
Come home
Come home to me

Time but you couldn’t let go
blood lost from the wound you sew
Who left’s going to love me
Who left’s going to love me now

She said “Fuck your amor, I want in your head.”
Track Name: Only One
We found love buried in the ice
melted it to cloud and we pulled it from the sky
Stitched our souls
Cut through bone
We made it over, we made a home
You said we could walk across the sea
That I was all you knew and all that you could see but you spoke slowly through a fickle tongue
And I stopped thinking I’m your only one

We let go
Hulled our bones
Rewrote love, reddened our blood
Bedded a home where the marrow was
We don’t know why darkness becomes our fill
So I pulled the rows, lifted the lows but I’m below us still

We found hope, a flicker in the dark
pressed against the stones and the weight of our restart
Stitched its skin, let it all in
Layered it for days like the sand above our sin
You said we could walk across the sea
That I was all you knew and all that you could see but you spoke slowly through a crippled tongue
And I stopped thinking I’m your only one
