Track Name: A Quick Drink and a Slow Dance
you’re not the oblivious kind
take my hand and fall off the line
I’ve been waiting so long to start
since I found you inside my heart

choose a corner on your street
choose an hour for us to meet
no matter what you care to do
you will know that all these things are true
Track Name: Parks and Resignation
bottoms up, we’re going down
and it was me who fired the shot
you’re unarmed, I killed your guard
now I know exactly what we’re not

keep your heart where they can see the parts I can’t let go of
when you’re far from this town use its light to guide you home

save me from my mistakes
I have made the gravest one today
if I knew how to stay the same
you would not have to walk away

keep your heart where they can see the parts I can’t let go of
when you’re far from this town use its light to guide you home

halfway from the hospital
I am not sure which way is home
I don’t think I can be here anymore
resolution fogs your face
I want to take it all away
but I don’t think you should be here anymore

walking home with your head down
the worst of it is over now
so tell me, dear, what are you dreaming of?
when you feel as sad as this
lost against a ventured risk
at the very least you can know you were loved
Track Name: Yeah You Are
hand on heart
it’s breaking through
I want you, I want you, she said, I want you, I

start it up
I’m fighting too
I want you, I want you, he said, I want you, I

comfort calls
you always knew
I want you, I want you, she said, I want you, I

a gracious fit
this noble truth
I want you, I want you, he said, I want you, I

falling down so far
it turns into a climb and
I am ready now to ascend with you
blazing in your chest
light pours from your mouth
I want to bask in it until I burn up inside your glow
could you be in love
with a broken man?
I am not sure I can ever be better than I am
worry not, my love
I am shattered too
and we crashed at once to be everything
everything I wanted

you are everything
Track Name: Big Talker
I wanna be better by the time you come home
clean up, clean out and get respectable
and I will hold back all the things that scare you
I will hold back all the things that scare you
I will hold back all the things that scare you
I will hold them back

and I could line up so that you could fall down
quietly and safely, breathing sound
I have got your back when the world defeats you
I have got your back when the world defeats you
I have got your back when the world defeats you
I have got your back

and I dug out your heart with my bare hands
pulled up all the shards they left in it
and I will beat back all the girls who stuck you
I will beat back all the girls who stuck you
I will beat back all the girls who stuck you
I will beat them back

come home, my love
Track Name: A Million More Years
I’m so sick of you trying to make it
and of fucking folk songs that fake it at the end
tired of waking up just to repeat it
the same sodden gray that never seems to bend
to white

you think you lied to spare me
but you’re just saving yourself

and when the fog cleared
did you see what you wanted?
when the fog cleared
could you reach what you wanted?
when the fog cleared
I lost everything I wanted
when the fog clears
I won’t watch you hold what you want
when the fog

you think you lied to spare me
Track Name: Blow Out the Candles Before You Leave
you’re an out-of-focus movie screen
you’re the radio with one headphone out
close the windows they can hear you screaming
falling, swinging, lacking any clout

flicker

you’re better than the worst of it
you’re older than you wanted to be
close the windows they can hear you screaming
close the windows they can hear you screaming

flicker

smashing all the glass apart
screaming your light out until your heart

flickers
Track Name: Blood Ablaze
seasonal allergies have always come and gone
like you inside my mind on the good days
meteor showers fell on my bravest gesture
while you were throwing darts with Happiness

and there was nothing I could’ve played
I want to feel nothing until you run away
I’d tell you one thing
if you could hear my heart falling

northeastern wind stirs up memories like photographs
the images constructed in your likeness
they wouldn’t be a mirror, no, they wouldn’t tell the truth
if I met you now I wouldn’t want you like this
if I met you now I wouldn’t want you like this

and there was nothing I could’ve played
I want to feel nothing until you run away
I’d tell you one thing
if you could hear my heart falling

all of the songs you carved out and played
they mean fucking nothing without your face
I’d tell you one thing
if you could hear my heart falling over
the sound of your
retreat
Track Name: Snow Heart
how does it feel to be good?
I figure you’d know better than I could
like you know how it feels to be beautiful

in the dark shone a beam that I knew
was a string of white lights leading straight back to you
wrap us up and we’d be beautiful

you fought so hard for your mind
you rewrote every worthless line
if I come around for mine
make it easy on your time

if I come around
Track Name: Things Change, My Dear
word is that you’re sad, it makes me sad too
they say the light inside your eyes is a duller blue
I wish I could be the one to turn it up again

I see you making changes but I don’t know why
you think your heart needs fixing or the reasons you would try
to fight against the grace that was never meant to bend

do you need to play so strong?
baby it’s gone on too long
you could be easier on your love

filling up your backseat with tattered maps
folded up inside your mind with everything you lack
when you’re out there on the road you always stop to start

in the footlights’ glare you feel another way
and you face them like you mean it but what you don’t say
is: “you can hold my songs but you’ll never take my heart”

and do you need to play so strong?
baby it’s gone on too long
you could be easier on your love
did you really wish it gone?
baby it’s gone on too long
you could be easier on your love

when will you love you like I love you?

keep this declaration where you need to
you won’t ever have to voice it cause you know it’s true
I won’t ever say no to holding onto you
Track Name: A.N.A.F. (w/Don Brownrigg)
speak easy, my darling
your dreams are filling up my flask
don’t spill me, my darling
this is the kind of love that lasts
all day or
until the stars fall past

fall backward, my darling
these waiting arms won’t fail you now
look forward, my darling
these bashful eyes will blink their vows
all day or
until the stars fall past

could you be mine, just for this time?
I am not asking for your hand
oh baby, not maybe
let’s just dance to our favourite band

I would have
have been so
so easy, easy
on your
heart
Track Name: Threw It Away for Karen O
oh, sin
in the making
I am not your connoisseur

but I know
that you know
you would be
be the biggest score

hard enough to
know I want you
harder still to know it’s wrong
hard enough to
even look at you
easier to just move along

lost the map
inside your trap
you said
I should
not
wait

now it ends
we can’t be friends
maybe our time came too late

hard enough to
know I want you
harder still to know it’s wrong
hard enough to
even look at you
harder still to just move along
