Track Name: Anatomy of a Crush
i'm feeling so blinded
by your shine
i wish you held my
hands through the world's grind

i can't seem to find you
but you're always in my head
i can't remind you
of the things i would have said

don't take your time
to figure out why
you couldn't untie
yourself to be mine

i can't seem to find you
but you're always in my head
i can't remind you
of the things i would have said

i wanna be a part of you
the part that stays
i guess that you already knew
i'd go away

i can't seem to find you
but you're always in my head
i can't remind you
of the things i would have said
Track Name: Stick the Landing
we could fall in love easily
from here, from right here
let's try not to burn in the
atmosphere, atmosphere

i'll try and stick the landing
if you promise to
if you promise to

i guess it's time for us
to show our scars, show our scars
from wounds that we've been keeping
behind bars, behind bars

i'll try and stick the landing
if you promise to
if you promise to

now that we've cast ourselves
into this rhyme, to this rhyme
its up to us and that suits
you just fine, me just fine

i'll try and stick the landing
if you promise to
if you promise to
Track Name: Myself Away
if i can let my thoughts roam
and lead my mind astray
i just might feel more at home
with myself away, myself away

as long as i'm incomplete
i've got it made
as long as this bittersweet
taste doesn't fade

if i can bang my heart on
these jagged days
it might break into something
to give away, to give away

as long as i'm incomplete
i've got it made
as long as this bittersweet
taste doesn't fade

myself away
to give away

as long as i'm incomplete
i've got it made
as long as this bittersweet
taste doesn't fade
Track Name: House for the Leaving
you'd figured it out
better off not dreaming
you casted your doubt
so that i'd stop believing

that's all you told me
from the very beginning
that's what you sold me
but i wasn't buying

after a while
and when i'd done some living
you watched me from miles away
i'd start returning

that's all you told me
from the very beginning
that's what you sold me
but in time i'd be buying

you're leaving me now
i'm the one left here breathing
with what time's allowed
in this house for the leaving

that's all you told me
from the very beginning
that's what you sold me
that i've bought now you're dying
Track Name: Between Sundays
between sundays
another week has gone
gone and made you start
what you've already done
for so long now
you've always heard it's wrong
to keep hiding
what you've known all along

can't keep waiting
on something to come make it better
can't keep waiting
for what you really want

between sundays
it always comes undone
walking back from the steps
that you've begun
taking chances
to see if you'll outrun
what is keeping you
from what you should become

can't keep waiting
on something to come make it better
can't keep waiting
for what you really want

between sundays
it's time to wait your turn
wait and see if what you've got
makes others burn
for some more
of what you have barely learned
to say something new
when it's all been heard

can't keep waiting
on something to come make it better
can't keep waiting
for what you really want
Track Name: Aelegy
if i'd have tried that much harder
if i'd have tried half as much as you
we would've gone that much farther
to where the sky and sea mix blues

where you were has been filled with air
that i can't breathe until i'm through
being sorry for the despair
and for all that was mostly true

you were the one that was better
at all the things that I could do
not very well if it mattered
but i was best at failing you

where you were has been filled with air
that i can't breathe until i'm through
being sorry for the despair
and for all that was mostly true
Track Name: Just Don't Know
as another night
ensures the day has the fallen
over what it might have been
sounding kinda trite
this refrain i've been trawling
it's a net of knives i live in

in time i realized
i just don't know, just don't know
if get mesmerized
i'll let it show, let it show

it's taken time
to know that i won't figure
most of it out by hand
as long as you don't mind
i've only learned to slither
up the dizzy heights of sand

in time i realized
i just don't know, just don't know
if get mesmerized
i'll let it show, let it show

what i want
is probably not what i need
so if it's not
i won't be endlessly

in time i realized
i just don't know, just don't know
if get mesmerized
i'll let it show, let it show
Track Name: Head Start to Light
just when i feel like nothing is moving
toward a fight that I can't stop losing
losing my grip on what i always thought
i'd hang on, onto forever

remember to ask too much from this life
is something i wish i could forget
to make it real before i'm swallowed by night

i wanna feel kinda bright
the cosmos said it's alright
but with more time it just might
give me a head start to light

most of the time i'm almost choosing
between what might and what i have proven
with all that i was and what i always thought
i'd be, be forever

remember to ask too much from this life
is something i wish i could forget
to make it real before i'm swallowed by night

i wanna feel kinda bright
the cosmos said it's alright
but with more time it just might
give me a head start to light
Track Name: Where All the Hearts Go
don't seem to feel it
no words for this page
maybe there's nothing
left of me today

let's just pretend there's a place that's named
where all the hearts go on holiday

i guess i'll make it
one more time this way
i always imagined
there' s a better place

kinda reminds me about the time we stayed
where all the hearts go on holiday

i sorta feel like
there's more at play
and a little bit tragic
about how all things fade

sooner or later we'll all leave one day
where all the hearts go on holiday
Track Name: Before We're Gone
there we go again
just wasting our time
who knows if or when
we'll get what won't find
or what for all of us
might never see

let's be something half strong
and half wrong before we're gone

we are just beneath
but seem so far away
sometimes we feel so weak
sometimes we seize the day
same as it never was
forever be

let's be something half strong
and half wrong before we're gone

let's be something half strong
and half wrong before we're gone
