Track Name: Forgive and Forget
We always wait for too long just to meet you
We always wait to see you at the door
But you don't feel like showing
Your face around here anymore
The door's still open.

You always seem to give up way too easy
Mom might pull her hair out from the stress
Of pleading with your conscience
She knows there's none of it left,
It's hard to forgive, It's hard to forget.

The signs are on the ceiling, the sun is gonna set
It's hard to forgive, it's hard to forget.

You always try to calm your nerves by smoking
You might smoke yourself to death one day
We would all be breathless,
but not at all surprised
There's lots of ways to die
And that's just one way.

It's always such a burden to be near you
We can only handle you in turns
Sometimes it's a pleasure
But other times it hurts 'Cause you never learned
And we never taught you.

Sometimes i wonder if love is just a word
That you never learned
And we never taught you.

You never learned
And we never taught you.
Track Name: Always Falling Apart
There are birds singing
Not a soul speaking
It's a perfect afternoon
But your bones ache and
Your blue heart is breaking
And you don't know what to do.

It's gonna be a long night with you.

You take short breaths and
You get anxious that
Something's bound to go wrong.
We can try to fix you
Money's not an issue
But we'd rather move on.

It's gonna be a long night with you
It's gonna be a long night again.

I'm always
I'm always
I'm always falling apart.
I'm always
I'm always
I'm always falling apart.

Where's your mind racing
Out of my basement
It's too easy to lie.
We've still got tomorrow
Always got tomorrow
To repair one more time.

It's gonna be a long night again
It's gonna be a long night again.

I'm always
I'm always
I'm always falling apart.
I'm always
I'm always
I'm always falling apart.
Track Name: Untitled
We woke in a thunderstorm of hope and happy things
With all our memories
When we froze our butts off in the cold and snowy street
I slipped onto my knees.

And when you stretched your hand out
I said I'd rather stay down
Cause looking up at you was
The best place i could ever hope to be.

The load you carry on your shoulders is too much
For you to bear alone.
I loathe the look you get when you've been up to long
So darling come lie down.

You swore my face was see-through
I'm inclined to believe you
We'll get up if we need to
But we're right where we always hoped to be.
Track Name: Silent Karaoke Star
The silent karaoke star
Sits in the back with his arms in a cross
Nobody stares, they all think he's lost.

The silent karaoke star
Knows how to dance but he doesn't show off
Cause he knows his song is coming on.

The silent karaoke star
Frightens everybody around him at the bar
Sips his drink, and stares at the wall.

The silent karaoke star
He doesn't sing along, no he doesn't sing at all.
But he knows his song is coming on.

The silent karaoke star
Tries to grab the mic but he holds it wrong
Nobody cares, they all play along.

The silent karaoke star
Is just about drunk enough to give it his all
And he knows his song is coming on.
Track Name: Love Was An Ark
Driving home at 4am
Sobered up and in my head
You said i could spend the night
But if i stayed, i'd never leave.

Spent the day in each other's eyes
Knew to speak when the time was right
On the lake there were shooting stars
But we were obsessed and alone.

What if we make it?
what if i tried?
What if we fake it?
What if you're tired?

I sat on your couch for way too long
I sighed when you fell asleep on my arm

And love was an ark
Love was an ark.
Love was an ark on the river to nowhere.

We left our sorrows at the door
It felt like we'd been here before
Do you feel sick or just sick of me?
Darling don't let me go.

I hate the weather in the wintertime
Broke and bitter but we still get by
Our hands were puzzle pieces then
That didn't fit together.

What if we make it?
what if i tried?
What if we fake it?
What if you're tired?

I sat on your couch for way too long
I sighed when you fell asleep on my arm

And love was an ark
Love was an ark.
Love was an ark on the river to nowhere.
Love was an ark on the river to nowhere.
Love was an ark on the river to nowhere.
Love was an ark on the river to nowhere.
Track Name: Solstice
Water froze when it hit the ground
Little deaths and little sound
When no one is around.

The Devil's trying to set me up
With a plastic bag and a plastic cup
It never is enough.

My friends feel better when they get home
Do I keep moving on if i'm already lost?
I'm already lost.

The night i froze when I heard your voice
And felt my head fill with noise
Almost a melody.

You said give a shit, or give it up
Give me one reason to stay
And there was nothing I could say.

My friends feel better when they get home
Should i keep moving on if i'm already lost?
I'm already lost.

The devil chased me to my home
Is it true, is it wrong if i'm already lost?
I'm already lost.

The daylight comes and it's gone.
Daylight comes then it's gone.
The daylight, it comes then it's gone.
Daylight comes then it's gone.
Track Name: One Of Those Times
Waiting on your train to come home
To meet you for at least the hundredth time.
Cause every moment's slightly different
We grow but swear to never grow apart.
And every time we meet is like the first time.

Lately all my thoughts arrest me
And you get so scared you forget to breathe.
But if i'm broken, and if you're broken
Maybe we've got everything we need.
Maybe that's enough to love completely.

Sometimes things just don't work out
Sometimes you lose someone that you can't live without.
And others pass you by
And nothing feels right
But darling this ain't one of those times.

Darling this ain't one of those times.
Darling this ain't one of those times.
Darling this ain't one of those times.
