Track Name: Let Me In
And I’m not coming over
Until you settle down
We’re running round in circles
Because sometime it seems no one’s around

You let me in
And I forgave
We both forgot what we fought about
Only to fall in love again

And all those times I sing to you
I’ve finally figured out my sound
I find it keeps me humble
Because sometime it seems no one’s around

You let me in
And I forgave
We both forgot what we fought about
Only to fall in love again

And when I fall in line
You hold me all the time
Our resolution is strong
And it seems to carry us along

You let me in
And I forgave
We both forgot what we fought about
Only to fall in love again
Track Name: Missing
I am sorry for the way that you were treated
When I was acting out of my head
I thought that it was just a passing situation
But when I came to you had left

Now I guess that I am picking up the pieces
Until you go and find your way back home
Sometimes I am unsure of who I want to be
But I never want to be alone

Love I’ve been thinking that there is something I’m missing
And love you are what I am missing
If I stop listening it’s because I put you in this position
And love you are what I am missing

I’m starting to think that there’s more than just an inkling
A reason for why I stay up late at night
I stare up into the dark above my bed
As if there is a secret there to find.

And at night when I happen upon you
I stare up into the dark and you’re smiling at me
It’s like I never even acted on my greed
As if I never even drove you away.

Love I’ve been thinking that there is something I’m missing
And love you are what I am missing
If I stop listening it’s because I put you in this position
And love you are what I am missing

I am asking for a second chance
To make things right and treat you the same
I’ve been living in a trance
To think that you don’t want to see me

I am sorry for the way that you were treated
When I was acting out of my head
I thought that it was just a passing situation
But when I came to you had left

Love I’ve been thinking that there is something I’m missing
And love you are what I am missing
If I stop listening it’s because I put you in this position
And love you are what I am missing
Track Name: Gracie
I was tossing and turning
Lying next to you
I thought this whole thing over
But love, I still don’t know what to do
I will stay awake
I will stay awake

It’s worse than being embarrassed
I gave you the upper hand
But now I’ll fortify myself
And lay out my demands
I will stay awake
I will stay awake

Gracie, We’ve got to find an easier way
Lately, I’m feeling heavier everyday

I was lying on the carpet
Sucking up the dust from our shoes
But it’s more comfortable than sitting
On the bed next to you
I will stay awake
I will stay awake

Gracie, We’ve got to find another way
Lately, I’m feeling heavier everyday
Gracie, We’ve got to find another way
Lately, I’m feeling heavier everyday
Track Name: Sisters
And I will be the one
With my hands tied behind my back
In a room full of strangers
I’ll be the one behind the wall

Sister I am not so sure
If I know what I’m here for

And I will stand up tall
And I’ll stick my neck straight out
Because if I fall apart
Well at least I know I had tried

Say you are
Say you’d tried
I tried, I tried, I tried, I tried

And I will be your heart
Beating red inside of your chest
And if it should skip a beat
I will be the cause of that

Sister I am not so sure
If I know what I’m here for
I will walk on and I will know
At least I tried my best
At least I tried my best
Well at least I tried my best
Track Name: Anna
The words you say
Could write a book for every quote that you give
But somehow you say it like it’s something new

And her beliefs
Are firmly rooted in the ground like the trees
Up over walls, they grew towards me

Anna you stay and Anna you go
Anna thrives on her invisible throes
Anna calls and only then did I know
Anna, Anna, oh why did you go?

And I swear
It’s colder where I’m going but when I’m here
I just can’t seem to shake the chills

And you were wrong
Thinking anything’s better love than where you are
Sometimes the charm lies in the company that you keep

Anna you stay and Anna you go
Anna thrives on her invisible throes
Anna calls and only then did I know
Anna, Anna, oh why did you go?

Anna stays and Anna you go
Anna surrenders her humble repose
Anna calls and only then did I ask
Anna, Anna why didn’t we last?

Anna, Anna why didn’t we last?
Anna, Anna why didn’t we last?
Anna, Anna why didn’t we last?
Track Name: Have Heart
And when you lay your head down to sleep
I hope it’s me, me, it’s me that you dream
When it seems that things they get so hard
It’s in these moments most that I’m there to give you heart

And when these problems feel typical
And when recourse seems impossible
When these things they serve best to tear you apart
They give you heart

And I laughed when I found out her name was Rose
It’s in coincidences like this that I find hope
To sustain we need ourselves the most
But by keeping others close we fight the lowest low

And I hope dear that when you fall apart
You’ll think of me and you will get your start
And you’ll lift yourself up off of the ground
When it seems that relief cannot be found
And I’ll be there love, just to pick you up
To give you heart
Track Name: Tell My Story
And I hope you know
I’ve given a lot of thought
As to how I hope to put into words what is coming out

And I’d stay for and I’d stay for
To try and find the answer and what I hope it will bring

Pieces come apart
More than they fall in
Leave me feeling restless, not knowing where to begin

And when it comes I’ll know
Until that time I’ll wait
Because when it strikes I will hold it in my hands

And I’d stay for one hundred more
Hours if that’s what it will take
Hours begin to bleed into days
And days become what you make of them

These things they come so slowly
They’ll leave you in the dark
The dark that leaves you lonely
Is what makes you what you are
What you are

And I’d stay for one hundred more
Hours if that’s what it will take
Hours begin to bleed into days
And days become what you make of them
Track Name: Hanging Around
Tidal waves
You should know we’re not so young anymore
And they’re keeping the score

When I look back
I hope it was worth the effort attached.
But we’re moving too fast

And I saw on my way out
You and I will become, the ones hanging around

I thought that I looked
And had placed my exits in case
I had to evacuate

You’d sealed them off
Too clever and I don’t know where
I’ll be taken to next

And I saw on my way out
We are only in charge of our own affairs
We must grow up somehow
Or else we will become the ones hanging around
Track Name: I Promise You Relief
I promise you relief
For when things get heavy
You’re always on my mind

You drink to thicker skins
And the people that you will meet
They look you in the eye
And they’re always on your mind

So I will wait for you to come over
I’ll wait by the phone, don’t drive off the shoulder

And if what you think you need
Is not what you believe
It’s always on our minds
And the pain’s not far behind

So I will wait for you to come over
I’ll wait by the phone, don’t drive off the shoulder

It’s not what you have
It’s not what you want
It’s not what you need
Nor what you’re after

And if you should fall apart
I’ll wait for you at the start
We’ll make our love divine
And then we’ll be satisfied

So I will wait for you to come over
I’ll wait by the phone, don’t drive off the shoulder
Track Name: The Restless Release
When I wake up in this place
I’ll feel at home for the first time
I’ve been running around

When I kissed you last
You leapt out of my hands
I can’t hold you now

Hold you now

If I slow things down and try not to think too much
Maybe then, you’ll come back

How I hope you’ll come back
