Track Name: Like The Dream of It
it’s been a long while since the words came quick
my heart was narrow and my skin was thick
blessed and i’m cursed by the feeling
i can’t forget all the sparks i’ve seen

questioning what i thought i knew
if i’d seen it coming i’d have thought it through
built up to ruin by the simple fear
losing everything that i hold dear

maybe i was young or just naive
now i’m not sure what to believe
nothing comes as easy as i thought this was
nothing turns out like the dream of it does

i thought i had it all figured out
but i can’t distinguish truth from the doubt
doesn’t come as easy as i thought this was
nothing turns out like the dream of it does
Track Name: Remind Me
just stop
wait a minute, let me talk
words twisted in knot
we were nothing like we thought

just remind me
it only takes a second
to say i’m sorry, sorry

just stop
connecting every dot
gave it everything i’ve got
we were nothing like i thought

just remind me
it only takes a second
to say i’m sorry, sorry

when my heart starts beating
& the words start bleeding out
there’s nothing you could do to stop the meaning
of the words we’ve been screaming out
there’s nothing you could do, nothing you could do
Track Name: Decide
tell me how should we feel
how should we forget
all of the promises
covered in regret
tell me how do we deal
how do we prepare
now that we we turn around
and it’s no longer there

so many i love yous
so many goodbyes
we were so strong for so long we never had to decide
between
all of the i love yous
all of the goodbyes
we’d been hanging on for so long we’d forgotten to try

tell me where we go
what do we become
after all this time
trying to be one
tell me what happens next
what’s running through your head
after all these years
and after all we’ve said
Track Name: Find My Way
i wish that i could stay
here a little too long
act like the world would wait
if everything went wrong
i know that i can’t tell you about
all the things running through my head but

you keep me hanging on
when i can’t find my home
would you be my resting place
when i can’t find my way

i’ve got a sweeping fear
of missing all that matters
so what if i stay right here
and climb this ladder
i know that i can’t tell you about
all the fears running through my head
Track Name: Alright
when the day keeps breaking you down
love will still be found
when the world keeps spinning you around
keep your feet on the ground

if we love each other honey it’ll be alright

when words have got you feeling blue
from those mouths that don’t know you
life is more than this place
it’ll get better if we just start running away

if we love each other honey it’ll be alright
Track Name: Go
i want to stay
i better get going
keeping me safe will only keep me from growing

get on a plane
see you tomorrow
no one can save us from all of our sorrows

i never let you go
don’t you know i couldn’t let you go

the season had changed
i was in pittsburgh
facing the day that i thought that i deserved
for all that i kept
here in this vault
i know that you wept but it wasn’t my fault

i never let you go
don’t you know i couldn’t let you go
Track Name: All Over Again
i can see the picture of you leaving
never left my mind
under the umbrella of your doorstep
staring at the sky

you were gone so long
forgotten what it felt like
i was lost in your arms
the second that you came to my side
i could fall all over again with you

i know that i’m on my way tomorrow
packing up the room
i can hear the rain outside the window
begging for the truth

i know that we’re waiting for the moment
when all will be okay
i can feel the world outside the door
pulling us away
Track Name: Patience
oh dear clarity please come
show me what has just begun
with all the hopes and fears i’ve ever known
oh and faith come back to me
once convinced once believed
now a mystery i’ll seek alone

if i’ve learned anything at all about this life
it’s the things that scare you the most that are always worth the time
patience, hold me, let me feel this lonely
it’s the things that scare me the most that i know i need

there will always be these doubts
things that we can’t figure out
things that we’re not meant to know for sure
oh dear patience please be mine
this will surely take some time
with perspective i will learn much more
Track Name: The Good Hurt
stumbling along
a little broken
but so am i, so am i
something’s wrong
and unspoken
tell me why, you can tell me why

i already know
i can’t let it go
leave a trail back to my heart
and i will follow

can’t turn back now
but you can’t go forward
so unkind, so unkind
tell me how
oh the good hurt
is hard to find, so hard to find

i already know
i can’t let it go
leave a trail back to my home
and i will follow

oh my heart
so undecided
i can’t lie, no i can’t lie
torn apart
so unrequited
can’t say why, no i can’t tell you why
Track Name: Answers
i’ve got so many words to say
none would do us any good
caught between what i want to say
and what i really should

you’re still looking for answers
inside of my mouth
but the words you keep looking for
aren’t gonna come out

the letter that i never sent
all the words that i wrote down
the intention that i really meant
barely ever made a sound
