Heavy 04:20
And I called it heavy for that whole year I never got close to you And what was close enough? When reality is based on love and doubt and fear There ain’t a lot of choice to make And I never had enough to say Even now I struggle to keep you near And that’s a risk I take I wonder what’s best for you When you keep on running till Your heart was ready for one more tear Tell me about your love for him I used to love to hear you say Now I know what it’s all been for There’s nothing left worth waiting for You left me then, you’d do it now I’m hoping that I’ve changed somehow But I still can’t say I know you well But I can’t forget that time I fell

Neighbors 05:04
It’s all because the game we played Wasn’t much fun after all It’s all because the phone wouldn’t ring When you told it to And now we sit around Waiting for the one or the other To put it back together It’s all because the time we spent Left nothing in the bank for today And don’t forget we lost the TV set To the neighbors And now we sit around Thinking what’s to be done Here’s looking at the two of us together Please let the sky open up And give us all easy chairs We can sit in comfort here And deal with these old affairs Or just sit here patient-like and let Time swallow me whole All the time I think about the two of us Making malt liquor from stone and I And my insides, they’re not as quite as Warm as they used to be I’m not complaining, I’m not placing blame On the coffee table, take it with a cookie And warm up to a day that’s looking a lot like Yesterday, I think it’s an identical twin

Sometimes 03:56
Sometimes I wonder why Everything seems to pass me by I feel like a man just looking to play He can’t find his face one day Lights out, say goodbye Hold my hand, get another plan Dreams are made and stars they fade away Long ago I recall a place When we were together, and now not a trace Of anything left, big or small The door was open at the end of the hall Nothing left to say We stand in each other’s way A box of diamonds in each hand Drop them on the ground Watch them scatter around A bit of light to see your way
4.
Mind 06:10
What would change you between Now and what you have seen Going where you’ve been sent After every attempt And every experiment, one would agree That we are what we can see Given all reasonable cause We can justify laws Which are things which can break When survival’s at steak You push against that big wheel That filters out what we should feel I know there’s an eye inside me That tells me what we should see I bet you’ve thought about this by now It’s all figured out I bet you’re suffering somewhere in That place you’ve been walking in Let’s not pretend you know who you know Or where you go Try harder to maintain A simple mind keeps you sane It’s a movie. It plays in your mind It’s on a looped reel you’re hoping to find You try to fix it and fix the next one Until you’re left with your confusion

Travel Light 05:52
If there’s a method you’ve learned, you’re forgetting I’ve come far enough to misjudge a whole town It’s much safer to guess than be certain That’s just why they said “when there’s smoke, there’s fire” You can feel the end, I wasn’t much smarter then You can feel the end, it echoes through If there’s an easier way I’m sure you’re withholding It seems your heart is all you take with your handshake Could I be the only one left here dwelling? You knew all along you don’t give and don’t take If there’s a sweet soul inside, however dimming I can see your light it glows through your lampshade You can sleep better when nothing’s stirring So you travel light to play but you move on

Big Mess 04:51
Someday you’ll think about me You’ll worry yourself into fits Someday you’ll think about me And you’ll play our song, and you’ll notice things And you’ll feel more, and I know your thoughts Will hold you I’ll make sure all of it’s spent No way to finalize this Closure is only a word And I think it’s fair, I don’t make much there I should dream more, I should raise my thumbs And thank you, just thank you It’s sure been a big time After all we’re not such a big mess
8.
Swear to God 02:08
I swear to God Nobody knows who they are Or what they do in love I really mean it now I really do I watched you put on your shirt I saw every move Such a simple thing Yet I shake my head in disbelief That I could be with you

Foreign Sun 03:38
Bobby knows that she needs another way The grass is brown and the sidewalk's blown away She can’t find her way anymore And she won’t ask him what it’s all been for And she can’t stop until she hits another wall A girl like that needs a place to go When the morning finds her not at home She tries to smile but she can’t really fool anyone The girl is lost under a foreign sun Another day another walk away Another wait for flowers that won’t some today She won’t try to find his door She won’t ask him what it’s all been for She won’t try to hide at all.

Up ahead's a thousand lives we might live And when it comes it will be only one Every choice you fool and fret what you decide What would you change? You can no longer hold me. It's better this way And you no longer know me. It's better this way There's the spot where you swerved left instead of right Cruising off and out of sight, another life If you found yourself back then at that time You'd swerve again You can no longer hold me. It's better this way And you no longer know me. It's better this way Just think of it like things happen for reasons. It's better this way And you already told me, it's better this way You were right. You had waited.

Smashing 05:06
When you say jump I say how high When you say run I go When you say fly I take off When you say land I land When I look in your eyes I see rivers When I kiss your mouth I feel clouds When we hold hands I feel oceans When I touch your face I feel free When you are near I feel orchids When you’re beneath me I glow When you’re beside me I free fall When you’re above me I know I simply want to be by your side No matter the weather, no matter the why I learned to dance at the touch of your fingers And I learned to lie beneath loving sky You look so smashing Nearly all of the time I have you in mind By myself When I get lost I find you When I am found you cry When I jump up you follow When I fall down you sigh You were the one that promised me fun You were the one that forbade me to run You were the one that sat down beside me You were the one that promised the sun You look so smashing Nearly all of the time I have you in mind I’m by myself

Up to Me 05:49
If it’s still up to me, there’s going to be some big changes If it’s still up to me, I’m going to see some big changes And the rest of what’s left behind Will follow me, ‘cause I never leave If it’s still up to me, I’m going to be someone better We’ll wait and see, over time we’re gonna see what’s to come And the rest of what’s left behind Will follow you, ‘cause you always leave If it’s still up to me I’ll meet you in between the mountains If it’s still up to me I’ll meet you in between the mountains I’ll meet you in, in between
