Track Name: The Darkness
THE DARKNESS to take the light into the dark is to know the dark to know the dark, go into the dark you can lock the door, yeah you know how you can stay alone, you're so proud but you can't keep the darkness out you're probably the strongest one i know you've got the thickest skin, you've got weight to throw but you can't keep the darkness out whatever hurt you, what keeps you mad wants you to let it go, let it pass when memories turn to doubt you can't keep the darkness out the dark is a river and though it may divide if you wade into it, with your arms open wide let it take you with it, you don't have to fight it will provide there's nothing wrong with the heart in your chest it might be heavy but it's innocent it can't keep the darkness out you can't keep the darkness out
Track Name: The Shell
THE SHELL what is it you want from me is there something that i can’t see all my words are broken on the ground it gets so hard to talk to you you’re covered in this shell you grew it’s like you do and don’t want me around you stand by a castle moat reading everything i wrote looking for the sharks to pull you in i sit on the banks and call reading how to kill them all looking for the way to talk you down maybe it’d be easier if you felt the same for her then your heart could rest and want no more i want someone to hold me near it will not be you my dear do you think you could ever let me go it gets so hard to talk to you you’re covered in this shell you grew it’s like you do and don’t want me around
Track Name: One Way
ONE WAY i break where you bend i take what you send we both pretend but i start where you end when i say you know when i fall you go i row this boat too fast or too slow you’ve got one way i’ve got one way i break where you bend i take what you send we both pretend but i start where you end
Track Name: What I See
WHAT I SEE when you went south for sun and inspiration did you find that string of hearts in a star formation did you write words that you could sing but barely stand on you can fly as high as you ever wanted be as you may, fearless, and slightly haunted show em baby, this is your time to flaunt it they can’t see what i see but they could be what you want them to be your heart will never not be in constant motion did you ever sense the whisper of a distant devotion it’s right about now i lose my urge for waiting loving you alone takes some debating you draw me out but i still need some shading you can’t see what i see you can’t be what i want you to be
Track Name: All the Stars
ALL THE STARS all the stars through the trees do you look at these like i look to yout o be the one for me, do you see all the stars through the trees fly the birds by and by the reasons why, do you listen for the pull of the wind as they swoop and soar do you want more so many shine how do you find me in all those lights the madness that you feel does it tire your heart like it tears at mine every time the horse and cart all the madness all the stars through the trees do you look at these like i look to you to be the one for me, do you see all the stars through the trees
Track Name: Go First
GO FIRST i want you to go first it’s only getting worse either way it’s gonna hurt but i want you to go first i need you to leave i’m not the one to make you happy there’s no room to breathe i need you to leave i could hold you all night it wouldn’t make it right i have held you all day it doesn’t go away it’s when i hold you closet hat’s when it hurts the most i have stayed too long everything i do is wrong i am not that strong i have stayed too long i could hold you all night it wouldn’t make it right i have held you all day it doesn’t go away it’s when i hold you close that’s when it hurts the most i want you to go first let memory disperse either way it’s gonna hurt but i want you to go first
Track Name: For the Best
FOR THE BEST take me off the table put me away i’ve been to pieces i’ve been astray you take the right i’ll take what’s left even just for tonight it’s for the best you’re a tall tree tower i’m warm beside we’re almost on the dance floor but not quite let’s be right here let the rest go this will be the flower we’ll never know it’s for the best
Track Name: This Light
THIS LIGHT you in this light I give up my fight in the deepest of the night I give up my fight I wanted to say that though time gets in the way I want you to stay I want to stay here in this dark we have made a spark it has made a mark oh my heart
