Track Name: Home
She says you ask too many questions, he says what do you mean?
He says you're way too messy, you can't even keep your act clean
And all this pissed off agonizing chatter
Is all in the name of love, so it doesn't matter
So buckle me down, so I can't even make a sound
Those nights, when you're not around

He plays footsie underneath the table just to get her attention at least
She gives him a dirty look and says stop it, you're a strange kind of priest
They didn't notice the two kids watching at the other table
Who smiled on at the sight, because they knew they were able
To do what they had seen, with dirty looks been cleaned
Those nights, when you were around

What's to fear, I can't let you down, make you frown or bring you to tears
When I'm not near, please don't let go, just wait till I get back home

The porch light would flicker, when the wind blew too hard
It wrecked all the piles of leaves we had laid out around the yard
She said the wind reminds me of you, I'm always blown away
By the way you make it through, without being thrown away
I said it helps me through the dark, to know that we're on solid ground
Those nights, when you're not around

What's to fear, I can't let you down, make you frown or bring you to tears
When I'm not near, please don't let go, just wait till I get back home.
Track Name: Air Keeps Floating On
And with a click clack, kick back, everything you know is gone
You gotta step back and take track of all that you know you've won
And it comes right through the air hits you bare like a notion
It takes you back to a time of severe locomotion

The air keeps floating on

You're off track, spun out, looking for another lane
Caught off guard between a rock and a hard place

The air keeps floating on
Track Name: Unsure
Her words were a whisper, all caught up in your thoughts
So you decided to kiss her, but that's not all that you got.
And why is love so weary, so worn out and so weak.
In times when your heart's about to leak.

So don't mind me asking, how far will we make it through?
The love's all there, but my heart doesn't know about you.

She's got the smile I love, the eyes I need, the lips I want so tell me please
Just who you are and won't you take me, trust me girl and you will thank me.

I can't go back in time for you, what has always been the best things has turned out to be true. I have no reason to believe, all the tricks of love are hiding up both of my sleeves.

So tell me what you think without a doubt, you can let me know or let me out.
Anticipating this is so goddamn scary, they say love's bliss on the contrary.

I can't go back in time for you, what has always been the best things has turned out to be true. I have no reason to believe, all the tricks of love are hiding up both of my sleeves.

Her words were a whisper, all caught up in your thoughts
So you decided to kiss her, but that's not all that you got.

So don't mind me asking, how far will we make it through?
The love's all there, but my heart doesn't know about you.
Track Name: Easy As
He wakes up cold and it's dark outside, another lonely night at the same old time and he sighs as if somebody else were there.
He picks his clothes standing in the dark, turns on the light and then restarts on a hunt to find a shirt without a tear.

She's running late, has been up for hours, almost done her hair and has had three showers and will settle for just impressing the mirror.
Her motto is that you can finish last, but you're never done till your goals are passed and your reflection says, your path is clear.

Atom bombs and the seven seas, they can't create they can't relate to what's about to be.
Because everything from love to tragedy, it just can't wait to complicate this state of curiosity.

So don't wait up for me, cause I can tell you goodbye's easy as 1-2-3.

He wakes up wet covered in her tears, and the past eight days have felt like eight years, decaying in his knowledge of himself.
Because he doesn't know her anymore, he's looking at love behind closed doors. This storybook tale belongs on a shelf.
She's waiting for almost any cue, as her patience wars and her temper stews in a pot of what she feels will overflow.
She says it's a simple thing but a tough concept; you gotta learn to love and then get left and though her motto changed, she still up for the show.

Atom bombs and the seven seas, they can't create they can't relate to what's about to be.
Because everything from love to tragedy, it just can't wait to complicate this state of curiosity.
So don't wait up for me, cause I can tell you goodbye's easy as 1-2-3.

And all that this has done for me, I will let go, just so you can see.
How easy goodbye's can be.

So don't wait up for me, cause I can tell you goodbye's easy as 1-2-3.
So don't wait up for me, cause I can tell you goodbye's easy as 1-2-3.
Track Name: Lonely Train
The greatest minds, think in twos. This troubled mind thinks of you.
Inventing things, theories reign true. I theorize without a clue.
Thoughts planned out down to detail. Gets to the point like a nail.

And this blind mind acts, off of love not off of facts.
Take a leap of faith off the tracks.
Don't get picked up by the train of sadness and goodbyes.
Stay in the place your heart lies.

My feet keep pace with my heart. I cannot trace where it did start.
My mind it does not do it part. Leads me back to you then darts.
I cannot think of what to say, when my thoughts they are astray.

And this blind mind acts, off of love not off of facts.
Take a leap of faith off the tracks.
Don't get picked up by the train of sadness and goodbyes.
Stay in the place your heart lies.
Stay in the place your heart lies.
Track Name: Bad Hair Day
Take a look at me today my hair's a mess I have to stay inside before anybody sees.
I said what about your pretty smile, I've been looking at it, for a while, to see something like that should not be free. Take a look at me.

If I walked with you outside, my hair a mess and stood beside you, anyone could tell that you are true. Truly beautiful don't be afraid, everyone out there is winters slave, hard winds blowing at them right on through.
Take a look at you.

So keep me up, atop this hill. We won't stop, like Jack and Jill, it's for the thrill.

You ask me how do I sustain this patience, you call me insane. But the only crazy that I have is for you.
We speak of it most every night, you may deny but I am right, because of your beauty you are living proof, take a look at you.

So cuddle up and settle in I swear that it's my best defence against this cold that seems to never end.
Just know that we will battle through, this cold december right to june, to meet someone who likes what they see, take a look at me.

So keep me up, atop this hill. We won't stop, like Jack and Jill, it's for the thrill.

So keep me up atop this slope, a metaphor for that which hope, will bring us to our goals that never end.
And If we dream to satisfy these goals that seem to never die, I'd be lucky just to call you my friend, with love intent.

Even with presence askew, I feel like I'm still here with you. Because this heart never learned to look away. Now that I have justified, the beauty seen with these two eyes, I know that what you said was set in clay, go outside today.

So keep me up, atop this hill. We won't stop, like Jack and Jill, it's for the thrill.
So keep me up, atop this hill. We won't stop, like Jack and Jill, it's for the thrill.
