Track Name: Unless One
Unless you start coming up, coming up, coming I’ll feel nothing
Unless you start coming up, coming up, coming I’ll feel nothing

Unless you can tell me now, tell me now, tell me you feel something
Unless you can tell me now, tell me now, tell me you feel something

I don’t think I’ll run away, run away, run off, I’m still trying
Unless each time you said goodbye, said goodbye, said bye you were lying

I will keep my hopes up high, hoping high, hoping for reactions
I will try to open up, open up, open every action
Track Name: Lock the Door
Is this part where I leave
Should I lock the door behind me
I don’t think I’ll risk another word
I’ll just write what I say further
No, I won’t go
I’ll find an orchard for you to come home to
This is the part where I leave
It’s just too much to keep me

This is the shadow below me
It just follows suit as it’s growing
It’s just a walk conjoining
With the black below my standing
Oh, it needs a month
I’ll try my best to leave you at most
This is the part where I leave
You can lock the door behind me


This is the ground around me
The sunken path is all I see
Every inch is a dying breath
So I’ll take mine with each step
Oh, let’s make it known
Each piece we saved was the one to come home to
This is the part where I leave
You can lock the door behind me

Is this part where I leave
Should I lock the door behind me
I don’t think I’ll risk another word
I’ll just write what I say further
No, I won’t go
I’ll find an orchard for you to come home to
Oh, this is the part where I leave
It’s just too much to keep me
This is the part where I leave
You can lock the door behind me
Track Name: Lull On By
This leftover lighthouse
Is pale and green
They’ve sat behind my brown eyes
For years now so it seems
Let me in to your arms babe
let me in to your life
kill my words with your wisdom
You’re always so right

Come unravel in my bedroom
let’s stay up all night
Dulcet in the darkness
And even sweeter in the light
Please approach me slowly
So I can take in the view
You’re so god damn gorgeous
Even when you’re just passing through

And I

Falling too
Track Name: Brothers, Sisters, Lovers, Etc.
Brother tell me now
How you got this far but haven’t given out
I’ve fantasized about our future selves
The part in which we die beneath the sunny drinking belt
If you and I had made a train to travel far from hell
I think we’d have a story to tell

Grandpa on the platform
Staring at his knees that got so worn
A penny on his shoes to keep him checked
A parka on his skin to every inch except his neck
Heavy boots in evening blues were things he knew quite well
After all we’re just waiting for the swell


Oh love, you got it bad
It picks you up and drops you off so fast
It feels like starting over every time
No matter what you say or choose you never get it right
But so far what I’ve learned is that it doesn’t hurt to try,
So till it does I’ll do my best tonight

Baby, come on back
Your feet are all so dirty from those tracks
I wish that I had met you on the way
Instead of at the start where I could not find what to say
Regrets like saying no and being fickle, general sway
We don’t really talk so much these days
Track Name: Lately
I didn’t have one set purpose
Till I washed you from the stone
The blood came off, now your memory’s alone.
Now I’m alone to wake up
on another day to lose
I try to get up out but it’s no use

But you won’t, you won’t
Let go

At the end of all the thinking
to remove you from the stains
I sold it all but your face remains
At the end of every evening
I could feel your darker gaze
and all my thoughts and fears were in a haze

but I won’t, I won’t
let go

In spite of all our dreaming
Was I one to say
That when I looked in your eyes you would stay
All I ever wanted
was far from center stage
You put me in your heart and in my place

But you won’t, you won’t
Let go

You will light the path now,
A random access tune
Try to find your way with marquee moon
Tracing all those moments
For some kinder view
I will not separate the sign from you

lately
