Track Name: Burn Out The Night
And hear delight an impatient land
A lark singing of dawn and bright
Upon the neighborhood the grand
And driving rays burn out the night
And I go under and my eyelids
Still laden with lonely night
And fade into a bleary haze
Traffic lights marking the time

I am almost on my way
I'm still trapped inside the maze
All my days there is mystery in my mind
There's a line that doesn't rhyme

And you talk and I'm not listening
Bury my head in the sand
I've been pulled from this dream before
And I'm not doing that again
And I go under and my eyelids
Still laden with lonely night
And fade into a bleary haze
Traffic lights marking the time
Track Name: I Don't Want To
I have set my bar too low
Left myself no room to grow

I don't want to wake for the day
I'd like to live in this cliché
Fuzzy glimpses of bouquets
I don't want to wake for the day

All of the stars are fading away

I don't want to wake for the day
I can't help smiling in this place
I'm eating a whole buffet
I don't want to wake for the day

Beyond my memory, there's not much to see
I just run out my mind
I've been a-lounging for the last three weeks
In the sunshine
Track Name: Cold Front, Pt. 1
And your heart was tightly knit before I went and unraveled it
And I'd rather brood at sea so I don't break my integrity
Track Name: Arguing With You In My Dreams
We're in the sea, engulfed in sunshine, wanting more
You say to me that anything worth fighting for
Is out of my hands when I set the goal
I've never heard anything less useful

I like to spend my nights arguing with you in my dreams

I can't explain why all your love flies out the door
You say to me that anything worth fighting for
Is thinking about storming out the door
I can't take this scene anymore

I like to spend my nights arguing with you in my dreams

You said it already—you said goodnight

When I'm feeling melancholy, I slip into my old dream
I watch dry out over days a well that was filled to the brim
Not quite what I had in mind, but I am beaming anyway
In my imagined memory, it ripples and breathes as a lake

If I ever hurt you, please know the feeling stays with me
Till I don't remember a time without it breaks everything
I never found the right words to sum up my affection—in truth,
It might have taken armies to keep me away from you
Track Name: Done For Me
I redeemed myself quickly
I don't see what it did for me
So many cities in between
I don't see what they've done for me
Track Name: Shallower Water
We have all day to breathe our silent song
Your hands roll waves upon waves across the walls
I plan to stay just long enough to fall
I run away at any sign of flames at all

Now that you are rested up, it's better that you know
All your time's invested in someone who just goes

We're together and aching for the night
All your sunshine is burning you from your insides
You are tiring of my repeated lines
I am turning into white lies and wide eyes

Sun is sinking, going under
Some last light beams torn asunder
Cap another silent summer
Breathless thinking, endless wonder

When you stay in the shallower water
It's easy to float—I ought to know
Track Name: Ways
(When we run out of ways to distract you
What trouble will you fall into?)

My world cracked and left me out blinking
Goodbye to the wide open
I had wasted all my time thinking
I won't see the sun again

Now we laugh as all our walls sink and
Grab at answers in the night
I had wasted all my time thinking
I never quite got it right

All the ways you make me clever
Your thoughts are in mine forever
Track Name: I'll Never Remember
Where were we standing? I don't remember
Everything's different but we're still together
Moments before I thought myself better
Like I could foresee shifts in the weather

I know I'd better get it together
If I don't save it I'll never remember
When I am dreaming I change the weather
Sunshine in my eyes always feels better
Track Name: Cold Front, Pt. 2
You stop rivers and streams
Please get your cold front away from me
Track Name: Tiny Galaxies
(I can see forever)

I didn't know you yesterday
You might put all my fears at bay
And create more along the way
We're it seems as if from the start
Growing together but apart
Melding into a single heart
Beating excitedly at night
Working through confidence and fright
Patiently waiting for sunlight
Diving headlong into my dreams
Ripping my life right at the seams
Blowing out my reality

Finally I'm waking
Years have ticked away
Pushing, pulling, breaking
We ride every wave
Your arms guide me, sunshine
Pouring in my eyes
I squeal like a child
Who only wonders why

I am the one you came to see?
Are you sure you remember me?
Am I sure this is happening?
I'm getting lost inside my head
Filling it up with hope and dread
Parsing through everything you've said
Diving headlong into my dreams
Ripping my life right at the seams
Blowing out my reality
All of the stars have gone away
Leading into another day
All of the stars have gone away

I wrestled with this dream for years until I
Finally stopped closing my eyes
I've waited for you a long time
