Track Name: Indoor Voices
I'm getting tired of being told to live in the moment,
when all I want is my bed and the sounds of the ocean.
With hoods pulled tight and our sleeves covering our hands.
It's getting harder to sleep and we never seem to dream.
It's getting harder to sleep, we're always tossing and turning.

And I'm getting tired of being told that you're only one person
to the world,
when to one person you could be the world.
With hoods pulled tight and our sleeves covering out hands.
It's getting harder to sleep and we never seem to dream.
It's getting harder to sleep, we're always tossing and turning.

There's nothing in the dark that wasn't there in the light.
But there's an innocence in everyone that this world can't take away.
As hard as it tries!

I always seem to relate to strays,
waiting for someone to come along and take them away.
We're always waiting for someone,
waiting for someone.

I always seem to relate to strays,
waiting for someone to come along and take me away
to give me all the attention, the attention that we all crave.
Track Name: Please, Head North
After tonight,
I just can't be alone
driving home beneath the stoplights
They’re holding me in suspense.
but that's just the way it is I guess
For those of us who move too fast

and I wish that I could say
That I'm wishing you the best
(But I can’t, but I can't.)

So I’ll write it out on paper
to remember every word
For everything I’ve lost and found
inside of every verse
These are my directions to you:
Please, head north.

Voices scream inside of me.
Well, “Maybe I’m just cursed.”
(Just like they say),
maybe I’m just cursed.

I’m always hoping for the best
Maybe I’m just cursed.
I’m always hoping for the best
Preparing for the worst

So please, head north.
Maybe I was right,
maybe I was wrong
I just can’t write another one
of these summer songs
Oh please
not another sad, sad song,
You’ll find me hanging on every word
(on every word)

It kills you to know
this world, it owes you nothing.
So just forget what you’re expecting
You’ll find half what you deserve.
Track Name: For The World
The last thing you said to me was this
"I wouldn't trade you for the world"
(I couldn't trade you for the world)
Because in the moment I knew
how it truly felt to be loved unconditionally.
When you held me on the back porch underneath the setting sun.
You are the torch that lights the way through the darkest times in my life.
Like coals that would burn beneath my feet to keep me moving on.
Will you sing me to sleep the way you did when I was young.
When you held me on the back porch underneath the setting sun.
I got time to kill but I wont waste a second cause
I've grown tired of waiting and wasting away.
Right now it seems all I know and love is gone
Except my beat up guitar and unfinished songs.
At least I finished this one.
(The last thing you said to me was this
"I wouldn't trade you for the world")
Track Name: Just Go, Just Leave
I'm no good now
and I'm not sure
that I ever was.
Apologies are all thats left of me now.
Crying hard into my arms
I'll always be the lonely.
I'll always be
I'll always be
I'll always
and I know that
it's easier to get there
then it ever is to leave
but I think it's just the other way for me.
You know I am object
who is stuck inside your pocket,
you use me as you please.
So please use me.
Apologies are all thats left of me.
Crying hard into my arms,
I'll always be,
I'm no good now and I never was.
I'll always be
I'll always be
I'll always be.
Track Name: Castaway
When I walked down to the shore,
I watched the water tear you away from me.
So I, I cried out loud,
I cried out to you but I was too late.
I was too late.

So I went inside and felt a strange feeling over me.
If I had reached out to you
I could have kept you safe
I could have kept you safe
But now you're out there in the current
(It carries you away)
Buried underneath the waves.

And our past flashed right before my eyes
(our past flashed right before my eyes)
As I stood there motionless trapped in disbelief.
So many times and so many moments that we should have shared
Are now buried underneath the waves.

I just wish I could tell you
I just wish I could tell you
That I don't expect you to forgive me or to forget.
I'll just walk around this lifeless house
Singing songs. I hope they catch your ear.
You see right through me
You see right through me
So I'll look up and down the coast
You see right through me
You see right through me
So I'll look up and down the coast
Track Name: I Hope This Finds You Well
You were walking down the dead end streets while I was chasing echoes.
Just trying to catch familiar voices.
But all I'm hearing is this:
"Your choices lead you down this road so if you're walking all alone"

Is that you, did you get lost, well I did too.

Did you get lost?

Maybe you got what you deserved.
Maybe you got what you deserved.

There's no hope in "live and learn"

Maybe you got what you deserved.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
There's no future
when every bridge is burned.

Is there any hope left for tomorrow

or are we just buying time.

Looking to an empty sky
so we don't have to look into our lives.

Is that you?

Did you get lost, well I did too.
Did you get lost.

Maybe you got what you deserved,
Maybe you got what you deserved.
There's no hope in "live and learn"

Maybe you got what you deserved,
Maybe you got what you deserved,
There's no future when every bridge is burned.

and if you get the love you give the world
then you got what you deserved
and if I get the love you give the world
then I got what I deserved.
Track Name: Stay Home
So many days and nights of my life escape.
It always fades away.
It always fades away with time.
(The color fades away. The color fades away.)
And it's this feeling that has me going nowhere, gaining nothing at all.
If anyone should find you staring up at the unending sky.
What if I was smiling and running into your arms?
(What would you say?)
Would you see then what I see now?
(Keep running! Keep shining on!)
I'd put my ear against your heart to keep the beat forever
(Keep running) and hum it like my favorite song.
And it's safe to say life seems hopeless. (We are all alone.)
And it's this feeling that brings me closer and closer, closer to the end.
(Keep running, keep running, keep running, keep shining...)
Before this home becomes your casket.
And you're buried six feet beneath the ground.
And you're buried six feet beneath the ground.
Those starry eyes have lost their shine.
There's reason why I've made it this far without you.
You had your shot; this one's mine.
I'm taking aim.
Those starry eyes have lost their shine.
There's reason why I've made it this far without you.
You had your shot; this one's mine.
I'm taking aim so pull the trigger.
Track Name: Something Left Behind
I poured my heart out
I told you to keep this to yourself
I know that it's all my fault
I know that it's all my fault

The best and worst years of my life
Fell into these lines
The best and worst days of my life
Just fit into these lines

I said it and I meant it
All we have is time
So hold on to my number
And please pickup the phone
I miss the sound of all your voices
And even when I'm gone
Leave the light on for me
And I won't ever let you be
Something left behind

So please pick up this time
All we really have is time
So hold on to my number
And please pick up the phone
I miss the sound of all your voices
And even when I'm gone
Leave the light on for me
And I won't ever let you be
Something left behind

'Cause every second that you give
Is every life that you could have lived
And all those people you could have have been
You have to let them be
Something left behind

So hold onto my number
And please pick up the phone
I miss the sound of all your voices
And even when I'm gone
I've written songs about growing old
I wrote some along the road
And I write them all for my friends
So where ever I may go
I hope that you can hear me (I hope I can sing them loud)
I hope that you can hear me (They can hear me back home)
I hope that you can hear me (I said it and I meant it)
I hope that you can hear me (Never feel alone)
Track Name: 1978
She said
"Take a step back but please keep me in frame."
So I spent the next five years
standing in your way
I walked in with you alone
I'm walking out with you alone.

And I know just how you'd get
back at me
If I said that these songs
were about you.
You'd cry and say:
"I never meant to make you feel this way"
You'd cry and say:
"well it's been done, and it's too late"

Step back, but please keep me in frame
(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)
and I spent the next five years standing in your way.

I walked in with you alone
I'm walking out with you alone.
And it's too late.

and all that I have left
to give you now
to is a poor gift and that's myself.

She said
"take a step back,
but please keep me in frame"
(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)
and I spent so many years
just standing in your way

you walk in with me alone
and you walk out with me alone.

If I told you this song was about you.
(you'd cry and say, cry and say)
"I never meant to make you feel this way."

If I told you that this song was about you.
(you'd cry and say, cry and say)
its been done and it's too late.
