Track Name: try to swim
i can't stay and float here
water's getting in my ears
try to swim i only drown
in the worst of what i feared

take me away
to a city
take my hand

we can sit and talk there
sunlight getting in my eyes
try to smile and only frown
'cause your words
in my head resound

take me away
to a town
take my hand
take me away
take me away
Track Name: whensday
close your eyes
in there you'll find
a world unknown
locked until the sun lets you out
won't let you out

you want to play
hide and seek with me
you know i just can't see
not until the sun lets me in
the darkness only keeps me out
Track Name: hidden
night sky
looks high
with a known face
an ocean without a moon
i'm here
you're gone

all of this pain
is just part of the days
that have passed by
it's been a long time

they go on and on
like you wanted them to

your eyes
look high
in a strange place
it'll all become so still

all of this pain
is just part of the days
that have passed by
it's been a long time

they go on and on
like you wanted them to
go on and on
Track Name: warm wishes
remember when
we could step outside
and feel the sun
remember when
we could sit in the grass

i just can't be in this
icicle world anymore
when will the sun
melt it all away

seems so far from now
when i see that day
i know that i will be smiling
and i will be laughing
spinning around
feeling the breeze in my skirt

sit in a car and feel the wind
blow my hair
laugh when i see a dog
he's got his face out the window
and slobber in the traffic

it makes me miss those days
those sunny days
they're a'comin'
they're coming
they're coming

i want to walk without fear of falling
i wonder what we have
if there's one thing in common
Track Name: not enough
how long can i pretend
can i hold my tongue
can i hold my tongue
i can't keep this to myself
while you're slandering my name
pointing all this blame

how long
how long
until you believe in me

you're avoiding all the spark
that we've got inside our hearts
that we've got inside our hearts
our will to go on
is being stifled by the cold
like it's your only mode

how long
how long
until you see
until you believe in me
or anyone
Track Name: lovecraft
goodbye lover
goodbye children
blowing kisses from afar
i don't know how long i'll be gone
i'm going away
in a ship but not on the sea

he's taking me away
i don't know how far
but when i'm back again
i won't be the same

please don't look me
in the eye cause i know
you're gonna make me cry
you're gonna abduct my heart
i've gotta get away
back to the start
there's no one left to blame

i'm going away
perfect timing who are you
i said who do you think are
where do you think you're going
with my heart you stole it
you fall and i try to catch you
but you won't do it for me
no no no no
you won't do it for me

you think this is funny
but i'm not laughing
what on earth
is this reaction
Track Name: see my skin
you are the one
who knows me best
you are there when i undress
you are you are
always on my mind
at least just half the time

you see my skin
your arms i'd rather be in
a familiar touch
do i really miss you
all that much

you are the one
who knows me best
we'll just have to lay it to rest
it's all in my mind
never took the time
to really understand
all just a dream
were you just a part of it
or just a dream

i shake when i hold the glass
up to the light
in good spirit
you're nothing but a ghost
all you do is haunt me
all you do is haunt me
and that's what i like the most

were you the one
i thought you knew me
or was it all in my head
Track Name: ride along
i'm miles away from home
i've gotta get back
single line
get on a train
it'll all be okay

i'll come back
i've gotta get back

stairs and buildings
they climb so high
gotta get to the sky
i need it

i need a bigger city
get on a bus
fall asleep
i know where i'm bound
i know where i can be found

gotta get back
gotta get back
gotta gotta get back
it's a part of me
that i have to meet
gotta get back
gotta get back
