Track Name: good news
i will walk right through these hills until we see grey, i'll comb my hair, i'll brush my teeth, i'll pretend that i care, i will hang my heart over the moonlight, i'll paint each star bright colors just for you

i will come down from this high if you wanted me to be there for you, just don't count all these lost numbers dear, i will come down from this high if you wanted me to be there for you, just don't count all these lost castles dear

just to find out that we have nothing here, just to find out that we both have nothing here, is good news.

i will turn the lights off in this motel room, i'll hang my suite from the curtain rod until the morning is near, i will dress myself up for the day, i'll go outside i'll learn to wave, i will learn to say hi

i will come down from this high if you wanted me to be there for you, just don't dont count all these lost numbers dear, i will come down from this high if you wanted me to be there for you, just don't count all these lost castles dear

just to find out that we have nothing here, just to find out that we both have nothing here, is good news.
Track Name: fire
i have been waiting for these days to rearrange around this old moonlight, and the dates, but maybe we were late

the fire here keeps changing, the light is never the same thing, the fire here keeps changing, and maybe we were late, ooh ooh ooh, ah ah ah

we had been waiting for this garden here to keep growing alone under the moonlight, and the dates, but maybe we were late

the fire here keeps changing, the light is never the same thing, the fire here keeps changing, and maybe we were late, ooh ooh ooh, ah ah ah
Track Name: repetitions
it's cold outside, the wind sweeps the chimney right out the front door, don't want me coming here anymore, i found half a heart, down where the river bends the lonely shaking hands of a dearly departed friend

i'll tend to the child, i'll tend to her smile, tomorrow i'll do it all again beneath the ocean, beneath the waves, beneath our ways, we'll realize it's just another repetition beneath the ocean

the moon came out, to sing us a lullaby to sing our little hearts right back to there very start, the light fell out, heavy was the sound, it shook the ocean, the seagulls here are flying upside down

i'll tend to the child, i'll tend to her smile, tomorrow i'll do it all again beneath the ocean, beneath the waves, beneath our ways, we'll realize it's just a broken repetition beneath the ocean, just like my friends, just like the end, we'll realize it's just a broken repetition beneath the ocean, beneath the waves, beneath our ways, we'll realize it's just another repetition beneath the ocean, just like my friends, just like my friends, just like my good friends
Track Name: trembling stars
i will wait for you to wake me from my dreams, to shake me from my sleep, it's these old trembling stars it's these old broken down antenna radios

gold river runs right through my home, the cold here splinters my bones, my heart shivers as if we had never been alone

and all we have, all we have, and all we have, all we have, is fishing box and tackle with a line in the water run away from me now

i will sink with you to the depths of our dreams shake me violently again it's these old rambling cars it's these old broken down transistor radios

gold river runs right through my home the cold here splinters my bones my heart withers as if we have never been alone

and all we have, all we have, and all we have, all we have, is fishing box and tackle with a line in the water run away from me now
Track Name: bee sting
i'm on my way home, wont you lite the house on fire, wont you let these shadows burn, we will stand close together for the first time in a long time

the weeping willow lays by the shore, the star shines down her heavy light once more just to rest for a while on a blanket of sand as the rivers coming in, the tall grass runs away with the wind, i'm gonna let it run a while i'm gonna let it sink in because the rivers coming in

two years on a ship thats been sinking on a river, we tied our anchor to a rock and called it hope, we'll patch this hole and row it back to shore with the oars made of bones from the trees that died before you, they died before you

please don't let the willow weep no more, her hearts turning hard just like the stones in the shore i'm gonna let it rest a while on a blanket of love the rivers coming in, the roots run deep and the mountains fall slow, his name was just a reminder it was a symbol of hope it was something to hang your hat on by the door as you go, he built his crown out of sticks, a wreath if you will, his throne was as powerful as anything you've known, i've seen it all fall away with the wind
Track Name: demons
ohh ohh, i may become an animal, a bird in the trees a burden for rabbits lies a fox in the leaves

and over the mountains, and under these leaf ridden hills, we may become soft like the water here and run

ohh ohh, we may become the weather, a howl in the breeze a burden for these trees a fire in the leaves

and over and under these hollow reeds, a heart built by demons lays in the water, like eyes built by strangers soon we'll see, over the mountains, and under these leaf ridden hills, we may become just like the light here and run
Track Name: hollow
oh dear i do fear that the rain is coming in, over the mountains led down through the valleys it follows the rivers and streams, ill go outside late at night and sip on some tea, we'll meet the old merry ghost with candles under her wings

just like you dear, light the way with your smile down through the hollow

we'll sleep here now, we'll lay here now beneath the winters last breath

oh dear i do fear that these clouds may begin to break it louder than thunder but softer than water im holding in my hands, ill go outside late at night and sip upon some tea, we'll meet the old merry ghost with crystals in her hair

just like you dear, light the way with your smile down through the hollow, just like you dear, light the way with your smile down through the hollow

we'll sleep here now, we'll lay here now, beneath the winters last breath
Track Name: weight
weight weight weighs a ton, it piles up so high, it towers over our own burning star don't look down, days days become one, they're stretching out so long, it towers over our own burning sun dont look down for fear that we both might fall over and drown, dont look down for fear we may never turn around

my mind does not feel, my mind does not feel anything at all, my mind it does not feel lonelier

take and take until it breaks the pieces pile up so high it towers over our own piece-of-mind, dont look down for fear that we both might fall over and drown, dont look down for fear we may never turn around

my mind it does not feel, my mind it does not feel anything at all, my mind it does not feel lonelier
Track Name: simple and slow
i remember a river that ran so low the rocks scraped the heavens and the stars fell through, i remember a heart that just let go, lite one more up before you go home

i just want this song to remain simple and slow, reminiscent of a time long ago

i remember a night that seamed so long it went on till the morning when you were gone, i remember that sound peace and quiet had come to comfort my soul when i was down

and all that i ask is that this song remains simple and slow, reminiscent of a time long ago
Track Name: next time
we've been bending the lights like a golden frame

i dont think your heartbeats been spinning outside you, the nighttime standing still

i will remember the sound, i will remember next time

we've been knocking at the door at an old friends

i dont think these walls contain here within them a heart beat standing still, the daytime keeps spinning around you, the nighttime standing still

i will remember the sound, i will remember next time
Track Name: over the helm
there's no light coming in, the ice in your glass will only ease the liquor past and i don't think that you need a hand

we live underground the soil dampens the embers, it lessens the burn, it lessens the burn

oh the river over the helm and into the sea, down in the valley this lonesome wall that we keep, and all that's here with us one day will fall, fall deep in the sea

there's no hope to be found, the heart in your hand will only burn a hole right through and fall fall fall right to the ground

we live in the clouds, the moisture dampens the embers it lessens the burn it lessens the burn it lessens the burn

ohh the river over the helm and into the sea, down in the valley this lonesome wall that we keep, and all that's here with us one day will fall, fall deep in the sea, and all thats here with us one day will fall
