Track Name: sad love song [from someone else]
time / you couldn’t get enough of it
i tried / but in the end that wasn’t it
the thing is / i didn’t even know
you were unhappy / ‘cause it didn’t even show

and now i / i don’t know what to do
i don’t like / feeling so blue
i never / fall in love, it’s true
but if i did / it would’ve been with you
Track Name: maps & hands
you say / you can only draw maps and hands
there’s more to that / than you seem to understand
no one writes a sentence like you do
i wish you saw what we all can see in you

can’t you see? it wasn’t me
all you do, it comes from you
you could write those trees you read
all the seeds are at your feet

i see / the roots growing out of your ears
so unclench your teeth / swallow all of your tears
the signs are rusted / the path’s overgrown
but it’s better when you don’t know which way to go

can’t you see? it wasn’t me
all you do, it comes from you
you could write those trees you read
all the seeds are at your feet

can’t you see? it wasn’t me
all you do, it comes from you
you could write those trees you read
all the seeds are at your feet
Track Name: bleak
i can’t sleep through these dreary months
you know i tried to more than once
these things were easy when we were young
now restlessness has lost its fun

ooooooh
we can’t go on this way
ooooooh
‘cause nothing stays the same

i always knew there’d come a day
when i’d stop seeing you that way
you weren’t as true as i’d believed
it’s strange to say, but i’m relieved

ooooooh
we can’t go on this way
ooooooh
‘cause nothing stays the same
ooooooh
we can’t go on this way
ooooooh
‘cause we are not the same

ooooooh
we can’t go on this way
ooooooh
‘cause nothing stays the same
ooooooh
we can’t go on this way
ooooooh
‘cause we are not the same
Track Name: worrydoll
i try / but i can’t think of anything
except for you
i know / that i shouldn’t think of you
the way i do

if it was up to me
i’d never let you worry
if it was up to me

i’m crazy for you / and i know that it shows
but when you asked me i froze
you’re heart’s so worn out / and you’re always too hard on yourself
but i don’t want anyone else

if it was up to me
i’d never let you worry
if it was up to me

i try / but i can’t think of anyone
except for you / tell me, what should i do?
Track Name: night of the living dreams
i fell down your stairs and couldn’t get up
20 years of walking wasn’t enough
my bones weren’t ready to be steady

so believe me
i know / it’s not easy
to see / what’s right in front of you

i had a dream i was stuck in a field
when the lilacs bloomed, i put up my shield
‘cause i’d been warned - all flowers have thorns

so believe me
i know / it’s not easy
to see / what’s right in front of you

a few years ago i was the firefly
stuck in the spiders web, waiting to die
i didn’t know that i could just go

so believe me
i know / it’s not easy
to see / what’s right in front of you

and oh, how it shows
we’ve got so far to go
oh, how it shows
we’ve got so far to go
Track Name: backwards lullaby
electric lines run from me to you
if they should snap i don’t know what i’ll do
if i go first, i didn’t mean to
next time around i’ll be taking care of you

and i’ll eat four leaf clovers
’til i’m one of the lucky ones
close my eyes, tell me when it’s over
this scene is my least favorite one

a lullaby played in reverse
staring in the back of your baby’s hearse
i can’t really say that i blame him
i don’t i don’t i don't know which is worse

but i’ll eat four leaf clovers
’til i’m one of the lucky ones
close my eyes, tell me when it’s over
this scene is my least favorite one
Track Name: head in the clouds
head in the clouds
both feet on the ground
the air is thinner here
can you make it home?

it takes all you have left
to brush off the dust from your back

don’t count all your wasted days
know that it was just a phase
good intentions tangle
when truth is at an angle

it takes all you have left
to brush off the dust from your back

it takes all you have left / to brush off the dust from your past
sentiments are small / when you realize they mean nothing at all
Track Name: save time
a mourning dove / some tough love
secrets get swept under the rug
it’s a good place to hide

a life plan / a held hand
a map to your 21 grams
that you couldn’t find

just shy of 25 / so concerned with wasting time
like it’s not on my side
while i’m gone / turn the tape recorder on
and see what you can find

a painted face / an empty space
left behind without a trace
it’s still hard to believe it

no proof / and no truth
a love note written in lemon juice
so you can’t read it

just shy of 25 / so concerned with wasting time
like it’s not on my side
someday i / will take back what’s mine
and leave this all behind
Track Name: fever dream
oh you know / that i’ve heard it before
you say you don’t know how / how to feel anymore
but even so, it doesn’t seem right
the way you try to forget yourself every night

please tell me what can i do
to make you feel like new?

it seems these days / that you’re all out of steam
living your life as if you’re inside a fever dream
but even so / it doesn’t seem fair
to go around believing that you don’t even care

i guess that all i can do
is hope for the best for you
and promise that someday
your nightmares will all go away
Track Name: black hole
i can hardly sleep at night
knowing that it’s slowly
creeping up to swallow us whole
time and space mean nothing in a black hole

white dwarf star/ -crossed lover
only our shell remains
for a few more days
the light / it burns out into wisps of smoke
and even though we’re close
we’re still light years away

even when the blood in my ears
is all that i can hear
even when i’ve lost all control
time and space mean nothing in a black hole

white dwarf star/ -crossed lover
only our shell remains
for a few more days
the light / it burns out into wisps of smoke
and even though we’re close
we’re still light years away

the blood that’s in my ears
is all that i can hear
and i’m at a loss
there’s nothing left to do
there’s nothing left to say
when the feeling is lost
