Track Name: March
you said that this was it
that you'd turn your shoulder
that I should shut my eyes and fall asleep for the night

well, in my dreams
they told me something that I could not believe
they whispered that you were here just for me

for weeks I did not hear my name
I did not hear the R roll of your tongue
I wondered if you saw me there?
the place I found you

Don't mistake this for a pattern
my thoughts are genuine
I'll save you pain
and you will save us
Track Name: Young Drive
I don't mind the sleepiness
'cause I get to see the sunrise on my drive to you
oh you, standing there
watching me pull up your street

'cause i'm in love
your love
it's been so long, so long,
so long since I've seen
your love
and your sweetness

we can drive all day long
it won't matter to me
'cause it's been months
don't you see you?
don't you see me?
and why i'm here?
despite the silence we've shared for so long

'cause i'm in love
your love
it's been so long, so long,
so long since I've seen
your love
and your sweetness
Track Name: Boardwalk
You said it was fine
if I looked the other way
You said it was fine
that I could go and stay

we'll hide in the tides
no morning no light
shed all your skin
there's more to this
I know 'cause I can feel it
don't worry do believe it
what's behind is there
let's just walk down this pier

but you already know

I said it was fine
if you could call me names
I said it was alright
that you could play these games

we'll hide in the tides
no morning no light
shed all your skin
there's more to this
I know 'cause I can feel it
don't worry do believe it
what's behind is there
let's just walk down this pier
Track Name: Desire
(love me, give me air
and just to die)

the more that we live
the more hat we give
the more that we'll breathe
the more we will see
the more that we will fly
the more that we'll try
the more that we ground
just to die

words frozen in midsay
delicate pieces of our souls
are all just floating away
all blown away as fast as were lived
faded and torn, if you were born again
would you live...
the same?

love me give me air
and just to die

breathe in your fears
exhale your desires

and promise me the weight of the world
lifted from our heads
I'm wondering, is this the end?
yeah, I'm wandering the earth searching
for a remedy that'll solve my crisis

is this the end?
more than you'll ever come to feel
and just to die

the more that we live
the more that we give
the more that we'll breathe
the more that we will see
the more that we'll fly
the more that we'll try
the more that we'll ground
just to die

breathe in your fears
exhale your desires

outta send my
outta send my
outta send my
outta send my
outta send my air

love me, give me air
more than you'll ever come to feel

love, more than your desire
more than your desire
more than your desire
more than your desire
more than your desire

the more that we live
the more that we give
the more that we'll breathe
the more that we will see
the more that we'll fly
the more that we'll try
the more that we'll ground
just to die

from the corners of my eyes
from the corners of these eyes

breathe in your fears
exhale your desires
Track Name: Red Room
Round and round the red room spins
I flipped you out and now I'm falling in
the summer is loud with the sound of your voice
you'd like to feel me down in the cold snow

'cause nothing can stop us now
'cause nothing could break us now

there's no turning back from all this truth
they're waiting for whats always due
no truth beyond these walls
as long as I've got you in my bones
in here is where we lie
in here is where we'll die

'cause nothing can stop us now
'cause nothing can stop us now

round and round the red room spins
I flipped you out and now I'm falling in
the summer is loud with the sound of your voice
you'd like to feel me down in the cold snow
Track Name: Zoology
mothers, don't you ever wonder?
where they wander?
farther than they explained

fathers, don't you ever wonder?
where they loiter?
farther than they explained

I loved you more than I ever said
nevermind the horrors in my head
why don't you ever explain?

its the color of within
its the color of our skin
its the color of our sins
its the color of within
oh its the color of our skin
its the color of within

its the color of within
its the color of our skin
its the color of our sins
its the color of within

mothers, don't you ever wonder?
what goes on in their minds?
a place we all find

fathers, don't you ever wonder?
what goes on in their minds?
a place we all escape

its the color of within
its the color of our skin
its the color of our sins
its the color of within
oh its the color of our skin
its the color of within

its the color of within
its the color of our skin
its the color of our sins
its the color of within

lovers, don't you ever wonder?
lovers, don't you ever wonder?
Track Name: Up On Mountains
I can see further than my life
when light shines the crystals in your eyes
don't mind the flashing lights when they shine bright
in our confines, only we're here tonight

and love...

we can sleep in all day
as long as we're up here all night
searching for the starshine
don't mind my mind when it
crosses the times of our lives
only we're here tonight
in love
Track Name: All Over Again
I do see that you're watching my every move
but you can't hear my thoughts or whats underneath

you fall, you died
and I saw your pain
but love, you didn't see mine

And you don't always know that I'm on the top
loving you was just a thought
its everything you took away
and love, what are you, what are you going to do
when I stop caring?
will things break apart
all over again?

I found it once, tried again twice
Now it's too many times to count
but I, I just keep falling
for your damn tricks
so easy to miss when you're fooled by...

you fall, you died
and I saw your pain
but love, you didn't see mine

And you don't always know that I'm on the top
loving you was just a thought
its everything you took away
and love, what are you, what are you going to do
when I stop caring?
will things break apart
all over again?
Track Name: Lunar Dance
(tell me) (help me)

It's been months, its been years
you're angry and I'm hurting
you always will you said,
"me too. except its way too late"

I could get drunk and fall asleep
until it's time to die
but we both wake every morning
with memories by our side

I like to think back at our mornings
and wonder what went wrong?
you were damn close to perfection,
except thats my biggest lie

If you want to talk, I'll listen
If you want to talk, I'll listen
If you want to talk, I'll listen
you know how it breaks me

don't start these rumors about my mind
you know you're the one that broke it
don't remind me of you and him
you know how it breaks me

don't spite me like showing my colors
to that side of the world
don't remind me of you and him
you know how it breaks me

it's been months, it's been years
you're angry and i'm hurting
you always will you said,
"me too. except its way too late"

If you want to talk, I'll listen
If you want to talk, I'll listen
If you want to talk, I'll listen
you know how it breaks me

don't start these rumors about my mind
you know you're the one that broke it
don't remind me of you and him
you know how it breaks me

If you want to talk, I'll listen
if you want to talk, I'll listen
if you want to talk, i'll listen
you know how it breaks me

don't start these rumors about my mind
you know you're the one that broke it
don't remind me of you and him
you know how it broke me
Track Name: You There
You there
Looking at me with your eagerness
Remember all your last spoken words?
Trying to rid yourself of memories
That seem so far away from reality

So don't try to slip away from me
Yeah don't try to slip away from me tonight

Watching falling at the last beat of their hearts
Wishing I was the one to say goodnight
Looking for a way to capture the night
Surrender the night, delay the fright
Remove yourself from those chains of sight

So don't try to slip away from me
Yeah don't try and slip away from me tonight
X2

Tonight
Track Name: Eve
watching time change the ways,
nothing can stop me
from falling out of your way

time apart will prove my way
nothing can stop me
from falling out of your way

you can fight me all the way
but nothing can stop me
from falling out of your way

there's no secret here
I love mirroring your stare
watch the clock tick away
I know I know you're not here for me
I know I know you're not here for me
but I'll watch you anyway
but I'll watch you anyway
but I'll watch you anyway

watching time change the way
nothing can stop me
from falling out of your way

what happened here before
it won't matter anymore
as long as I get to keep
all the secrets between you and me
yeah, all the secrets between you and me
they're all mine to keep

there's no secret here
I love mirroring your stare
watch the clock tick away
I know I know you're not here for me
but I'll watch you anyway
but I'll watch you anyway
