Track Name: Dig
Don't get me alone with my thoughts
cause I've lost my resolve
Don't get me alone with my thoughts
cause I've lost my resolve
Don't get me alone and out of sight
the smallest gap, too much light
Don't get me alone and out of sight
the smallest gap, too much light
Hands on my hips and I'm totally fixed to the floor, If I stay real still
Hands on my hips and I'm slow to admit when I'm wrong, I learned it from you
I've been known to run at night,
headlights, neon stripes
I've been known to run at night,
headlights, neon stripes
I've been known to dig in,
finish strong, long strides
I've been known to dig in,
finish strong, long strides
Hands on my hips and I'm totally fixed to the floor, If I stay real still
Hands on my hips and I'm slow to admit when I'm wrong, I learned it from you
Hands on my hips and I'm totally fixed to the floor, If I stay real still
Hands on my hips and I'm slow to admit when I'm wrong, I learned it from you
Learned it from you, Learned it from you
Track Name: Unwritten
Rusty bikes, melting ice, shield our eyes dazed
Counting hours, homemade scars, the way your hand stays
After market, keeps it darkest, jumps ahead in stages
I don't need protection my skin and bones, I can't wreck what I keep overgrown
If I could read, in the tea leaves that I would land on my feet
I'll play the part, it’s in the cards so this cannot be understood
I'm not proud of all the asking

Up too late, blood gets hungry, it thinks its own way
Missed my turn, no one's counting, this season starts today
Read my number, scratch my leg, this hill goes on for ages
I don't need reminding it's overblown, that I never learned to be alone
If I could read, in the tea leaves that I would land on my feet
I'll play the part, it’s in the cards so this cannot be understood
I'm not proud of all the asking
Track Name: Green and Golden
I don't need a marquee to figure it out
clear like a feather floating to the ground
Oil in the water, reflection in the murk
I forgot to wonder, what's a little dirt
When I was young and easy, apple of his eye, I loved spinning in place
I was leaving on the lights, I was listening for your car
For the record I do best, on borrowed time
I was leaving on the lights, stuck a note up on your door
left a pot of coffee on the stove, I was leaving on the lights
Don't assume the reason has any rationale
In spite of moon days, white days, in spite of the house
We can talk for hours and time will follow
I've been getting further from the age of honor
When I was green and golden, disturbingly sure, I was ripe for your praise
I was leaving on the lights, I was listening for your car
For the record I do best, on borrowed time
I was leaving on the lights, stuck a note up on your door
left a pot of coffee on the stove, I was leaving on the lights
you should know, you should know, you should know the score
Track Name: So
I can be alone, house without walls,
catalogue your breathing
Chalk up on the wall, with notes of the reasons
we talked about sea change
You got the wrong side of me.
I could not reverse and how could this be worse
we can be so
You got the wrong side of me.
I won't be won, I won't be lost
we can be so, we could be so
Came upon a sign for a lost dog, we can be lost some
Collar on the road, way to the other side, way to the other side
remember me so
You got the wrong side of me.
Check the records of the grievance
I've forgotten how you mean it
You got the wrong side of me.
I won't be won, I won't be lost
we can be so...we could be so
Can you feel the tile floor?
Can you see the diamonds?
Train your gaze to the open door
Was this what you came for?
Track Name: Mountain
When I was a mountain, the dust settled down
Nothing much could bring me, stumbling to the ground
The reason for the mountain, it isn’t mine to know
When days feel like lifetimes and eyes never close
The night we spent sleeping in the yard,
Counting the moths and lightning bugs
If this is our last we gave it all,
here in the space in the rise and fall
When I was a valley of Queen Anne's Lace
the arms of the cicada were my embrace
Hidden in the valley, where even it gets lost
Are many miles where you and I should never cross
The night we spent sleeping in the yard,
Counting the moths and lightning bugs
If this is our last we gave it all,
here in the space in the rise and fall
rise and fall
If this is the last, and you were the last, and this is our last night in the world
Track Name: Animal
Under the small veil of the squall, discovered skies
Animal, on the ground, touching down
Drunk on the vine, hot skin with pride, make up your mind
Battle hard, stolen arms, and light sparks
Thought I could hide from plainer counties
but time is up, and no one's found me
I close my eyes and make it disappear, its all around me here
What makes alive, clouds magnetize and beg for rain
on a hill, on a horn, hurry stay
Weeds wrap the cross, stitch of the marsh
I'm off at dusk, I'll hurry off,
Can you trust what you saw, like stones fall
Thought I could hide from plainer counties
but time is up, and no one's found me
I close my eyes and make it disappear, it’s all around me here
Give it time to feel the way, the way I do
Give it time to just sink in, give it time to feel the way I do
Cold on the shore, Rest in the foam
You watched the ghost, Michigan's bones
Reel in the rope, right from the storm
I stole a hope, into the gloom
just look up, you won't miss a thing
just look up, you won't miss a thing
Track Name: Down on Earth
Steady on my feet
You handed me a milkweed
Even with the stems green and cloudy
Draw your sword and face me
We’re Peter Pan and Wendy
Out west the blue sky’s never-ending
If I dig deep enough, a hole to China,
what I’d find was only earth
If I try hard enough, to find life on Mars,
what I’d discover was down on earth
Mud pies and squinted eyes
I never meant to hold too tight
Go hide and I’ll come and find you
Morning light and swimming suits
Puddles from the monsoon
Who would think that we’d find the water cool
If I dig deep enough, a hole to China,
what I’d find was only earth
If I try hard enough, to find life on Mars,
what I’d discover was down on earth
If I dig deep enough, a hole to China,
what I’d find was only earth
If I try hard enough, to find life on Mars,
what I’d discover was down on earth
Track Name: Professional Photos
Can we discuss the point that both of us are conspirators
behind the semigloss, professional photos and nonchalance
The hanging photographs can capture a moment of innocence
an afternoon in time of sun-capped mountains and casual smiles.
I'm not immune to us, I'm not immune to what could make this dangerous
I'm not immune to you and what could make this kind of moonlight made for us
I'm not innocent of saying the right words and hitting the ground
Can I rely on what were always your secrets and all of your charms
I don't envy this, the lost conversations and walking that line
of what was satisfied by telling the story we're trying to find
I'm not immune to us, I'm not immune to what could make this dangerous
I'm not immune to you and what could make this kind of moonlight made for us
Can we discuss the point that both of us are conspirators
Behind the semigloss, professional photos and nonchalance
I'm not immune to us, I'm not immune to what could make this dangerous
I'm not immune to you and what could make this kind of moonlight made for us
Does it feel like this?
Track Name: Fire Sale (featuring S. Carey)
Had to clean house of the old possessions
Had to let things go, fire sale prices
Watch me drag all my saved obsessions
I was looking back for the surprises
Take the long way, as is our way,
Even rains on us, we'll laugh it off
Take the long way, we'll spell things out,
We'll make days for us, we'll drag it out
Back in your car, drop me at the station
I was all wound up, for another jump
I can bag up all my best possessions
but the going rate's for the hour spent
Taking our time with the same expressions
Got a coffee cup as a promise
Take the long way as is our way,
Even rains on us, we'll laugh it off
Take the long way, we'll spell things out,
We'll make days for us, we'll drag it out
We'll drag it out
Taking our time with the same expressions
Got a coffee cup as a promise
Track Name: Signs
The only thing to say, don't write this down
Just tear it up for all I care, no one has to wonder
Long were the days when I would call
Long were the days that I would call you, that I would call
Gone are the days that I could call you
Please don't write this down
Just tear it up for all I care
Unless I do
Unless I do
