Dig 03:57
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

Unwritten 03:37
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

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

So 03:51
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?

Mountain 04:29
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

Animal 04:20
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

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

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?

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

Signs 02:27
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
