Track Name: Outbound
I walk out, and into the sun
I just don't know where to start
You see the world through blinded eyes
A broken heart, and crooked lies
You see the world in black and white
Without meaning, without life

You have tried your whole life to fin a place
Where you could escape, could hide away
But your past follows wherever you go
Engraved on your soul, carving every hole

I have tried to make you see sense
You just don't think of consequence
You see the world through blinded eyes
A broken heart, and crooked lies
You see the world in black and white
Without meaning, without life

You have tried your whole life to fin a place
Where you could escape, could hide away
But your past follows wherever you go
Engraved on your soul, carving every hole
Track Name: Crooked Blinds
Time is passing, but it is standing still
Just like the crooked blinds in your windowsill
peering in there is nothing to greet me there
just a shattered mirror, and it's cold dead stare

The large brass bell woke you up that morning
With the siren's song and it's urgent warning
the fire took all that did remain
the image of the wreckage burnt into your brain

If I could write what would the words be
to describe what I see in front of me
A curtain half drawn, a hole in the wall
And some rusty shingles on their slow fall

What is overgrown and overspent
We never know what we have left
What falls apart, what dreams are dead
With the rooftop caving over your head
Track Name: Footsteps
Saw you walkin uptown the other day
Went to say hi, but you turned the other way
Would have at least liked to get in a word or two
Left with nothing but your breath suspended in the air

I can see you footprints imprinted in the snow
More than I could bear, to see you walk away again
I almost ran to your side
But I knew, from that look in your eyes
You would be happier alone
Track Name: Calm
everything happens for a reason,
even if you dont know why
what's in the past will always stay there,
so nothing is a lie

I can see that you hurt inside,
calm your mind, and you will be fine
When you lie awake in the dead of night,
you hide your eyes, hide your eyes
But dont be afraid, cus the world dont bite,
come outside, and see the light
Come and watch the stting sun,
it will be alright, you will be alright
Track Name: God Knows
I look into your eyes
I can't tell what you need
You are like in open book
In a language I cant read

I'd like to know what youre hiding from
I'd like to know what youre looking for
I'd like to know where youre coming from
Maybe I could be something more

Seems like I just met you
Seems like I have known you for years
Can't take my eyes off you
You are the music ringin in my ears

We've all heard this story before
Happy or sad, it ends sometime
I hope to God that it goes on
Beause only he knows how time flies

We've all heard this story before
Happy or sad, it ends sometime
I hope to God that it goes on
Beause he knows just how time flies

I'd like to know what you're hiding from
I'd like to know what you're looking for
I'd like to know where you're coming from
Maybe I could be something more
Track Name: Someday
What I said to you,
I had no idea,
Just what I was gettin into,
What I said you could hold me to.

And I have to say,
Even yesterday,
I would not believe it,
I could not see it any other way.

Someday youll be gone
Someday you will go
Someday I will be all alone

Someday Ill look back
Someday Ill think of that
Someday I will think of home

Someday Ill hear your voice
Somewhere in my mind
For that is all I ever could find

Someday Ill find a place
Thousand of miles away
But all that will come in time

Someday youll be gone
Someday you will go
Someday I will be all alone

Someday Ill look back
Someday Ill think of that
Someday I will think of home
Track Name: The Storm
Was I swept away
like a leaf in the wind
what am I now, to what I was then

Bring on the storm
Bring on the pain
Bring on the pain
Bring on the shame
Bring on everything

It's hard to think
I can't describe
Just what it is
I feel inside
What am I doing

Who loved
Who cared
Who gave a d**m
Who tried to find out who I am
Tell me honestly

Who saw the storm
Who read the signs
Who tried to talk
Who did decline
I am still listening
Track Name: The Nearest Shore
Come and take my hand
Find that golden sunset
Somewhere beyond the yellow sand
With questions unanswered
Milling around our heads
Down where the water meets the land

Rest your weary bones
Let’s go reeling in the deep
We’ll kick sand and stones
Until we fall fast asleep

Calm your restless eyes
As stormy as the sea
Darlin you are safe
As long as you are with me

Someday you’ll find what you’re looking for
Dig up your dreams on the nearest shore
Don’t aim too high, but don’t swing too low
You’ve got to take a chance, don't let it go
Track Name: Petrichor
Can you feel the damp grass
Can you smell the petrichor
Of the earth neneath your feet
That smell has always calmed me
Like the soft glow of lightning
When I'm almost asleep

I saw your taillights fading
Off into the distance
I saw you turn your car away
Facing into the rain
You were heading due south
I wished you well on your way

I wish you took my offer
Of a place to stay, a shelter
But you never were that way
But know I know you
Know you made it back safe
Cus I can see the sun today

You are the golden Sunshine
And the silver moonlight
and you light up every day
And I watch the sunrise
East off in the distance
The first Moments of the day
