Track Name: again this time
what did you get
that you didn’t come for
didn’t ask for
again this time

what did you take
that you didn’t pay for
didn’t pray for
again this time

what did you say
that you didn’t mean to
couldn’t seem to
again this time

what’s in your eyes
for people to search for
lovers to fall for
again this time

just let me know
if you didn’t get to
all that you meant to
again this time

do you know how
to stop when you need to
breathe when you ought to
again this time

when did you know
you had to surrender
can’t quite remember
again this time

if there’s a chance
to start it all over
with a four leaf clover
again this time
Track Name: if you know what i mean
as its always has been
as it always could be
balanced world on a pin
expiration makes free
haltingly at the brink
where the sky meets the top of the sea
swallow all of the wind
breathe again once you’re downstream

if you know what I mean

lie of glass outside in
secret codes leak from the screen
and the flags half-masting
elegy for the fallen machines
shed the page of your skin
hang your heart on the hook of your need
set the dials for begin
come around to what you have been

if you know what I mean
Track Name: the wounds that you need
was that a whisper
a breath on its knees
you wade through the thistle
the wounds that you need

the wounds that you need

a gloom in the whistle
a rage in the breeze
you get used to the blisters
the wounds that you need

the wounds that you need

it’s never easy now
and hard to forget
no one told you how
a life’s yours to mend
closer to over now
time left to spend
throwing off all your vows
up to the ledge

must’ve just missed that
a tear in the freeze
a suffering abstract
the wounds that you need

the wounds that you need
Track Name: dandelion give away
far away, far away
sometimes the good things are so far away
give away, give away
like a dandelion give away

out to play, come out to play
some days the monsters all come out to play
gray to gray, gray to gray
walking in circles from gray to gray

want to stay, want to stay
can’t keep the feelings if they don’t want to stay
hard to break, hard to break
a heart on the line is never hard to break
Track Name: all there is
how many times
have I never been
after a while
i'm ready to give in
and get back here again, get back here again

say what's on your mind
what’s your greatest fear
if you were made blind
what would you keep near
tell me again, tell me again

if you close your eyes
it won’t disappear
all that you despise
all that you hold dear
you’ll see it again, see it again

this is all there is
this is all there is
its all the world can give
this is all there is

this is all there is
this is all there is
don’t know how to live
if this is all there is

this is all there is
this is all there is
no matter what you did
this is all there is

this is all there is
this is all there is
don’t go dreaming big
this is all there is
Track Name: a turn with gold
i am here to be your easy way out
there’s no fear whenever you are around
so stay near and tell the world what’s allowed
made so clear don’t know what it’s all about

what to say when every world will astound
all our days are a breeze to surmount
sword bouquet bittersweetness abounds
its ok not everything will work out

take all that i've got
take all that i've got
take all that i've got to live

I hope that its enough
I hope that its enough
I hope that its enough to give

I know there isn’t much
I know there isn’t much
I know there isn’t much to see

I’ll make you what you want
I’ll make you what you want
I’ll make you what you want to be
Track Name: only yours and mine
when is so far away
so far it may
not totally give back what you gave
all the same
all that you played
when you thought it would not wait
for some other day
for some other gray
that we’d paint some other shade
chose not to hate
chose what to make
a love that almost was too late
but still feels the weight of what we left behind
and still feels the weight that’s only yours and mine

who was it that should
if only we could
be what we once thought
we would
we understood
can’t always be good
in spite of ourselves
we’ve withstood
but still feel the weight of what we left behind
but still feel the weight that’s only yours and mine
