Track Name: Light
there light inside of my pocket
hope inside of these lungs
you don’t know what you’ve done

take whats yours, leave the rest
know the hardest part is changing
I feel, my heart is jaded

your making this hard
its easy for most
the lines in your smile, head to my toes
my heart, my hands are shaking

just breath in
or freak out
take me
or get out

there light inside of my pocket
hope inside of these lungs
you don’t know what you’ve done

a try and a call, the rise and a fall
your skin and the way I know it all
I swear my heart is shaking

The road that you know,
The things that you’ve shown
Brightest eyes leave me alone
I feel I am forsaken

* chorus times 2

take me
break me
do it all
In your arms
I will fall
I will try
I will
Oh lord I will
Track Name: The Sound of You Breathing
I listen to the sound of you breathing
so soft, so slow
you lay still, and I’m lost
as you breath in, I cant love you more.

we stay here with eyes on the ceiling
with legs crossed like vines
the heat, the sweat leaves you reeling
I want you all the time.

try testing your arms, your armor,
your chest it is beating
why do we leave so soon.

bones, they break…in two

I crave your body like a dream
that I wake from too soon
you hold me in your arms
like lovers do

we wont, break…in two

there’s an arch in your back
there’s a place for my hand

be enough
be enough
ohhhh this time
be enough
oh I will try
Track Name: Upwards Over the Mountain (Iron and Wine)
Mother don't worry, I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother don't worry, I've got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain

Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it all of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother forgive me I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons can be birds taken broken up to the mountain

Mother don't worry I've got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother don't worry she's got a garden we're it planting together
Mother remember the night that the dog had her pups in the pantry
Blood on the floor and the fleas in their paws
And you cried 'til the morning

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying always over the mountain
Track Name: Hold On to Me
You and I were there on the ground
Arms and bodies tangled, the weight of the world holds us down
Slow…. So slow. Slowly, kiss me on the mouth
Held in a spotlight, the stars are in your eyes
The grass in your hair, the moon and the fireflies
Slow down, you hold me to the ground
We slow down, we’re rolling all around

And you said, “ooh, hold on to me.”

I tell myself, “ooh, its alright.”
you whisper to me, “the fire is burning.” We bathe in the flickering light
it goes down, we listen to beautiful sounds
so slow…slow me down

and you said, “ooh, hold on to me.”
and I said, “ooh, you know what I need.”
and I said, “ooh, you’re on to me.”
and you said, “ooh, I know what you need”

the sounds that we make
the loudest gate, The whole world
Will know what we’re saying
Cryin out, like wolves now
iiiii, ooooohhhhhhhh

you and I were there on the ground
arms and bodies tangled, the weight of the world holds us down
slow….so slow
slowly, kiss me on the mouth

and you said, “ooh, hold on to me.”
and you said, “ooh, its all that I need.”
and I said, “ooh, you’re right on to me.”
and you said, “ooh, hold on to me.”
Track Name: The Speed of Night
Breath in it’s harmless, break down this godless
Fear of the old ways I know so well
Sick of my sins, sick of all the cities and these sidewalks
Paving over hell

There’s a burden in my heart, the devils in the details
It holds me down but rings out like a bell
I know its hardest on me, as I ride upon the swells
Wake me if I’m sleeping in a spell

The sound that she would make
Crashes down on to my face
The hours, these days, these lights
Pull me down at the speed of night

*I’ll bind it to my heart so hollow
I wont forget your face tomorrow
Bend me back and forth like a wire
Watch as I dance and shake like a liar

Oh this is my bodies way to cope
Oh this is my last request then I’ll go

Stones, build walls
Bury me in my home
Low and behold
There is love
This I know
Track Name: Where Have You Gone
Where have you gone?
I want to know
the streets are silent
With the winter’s snow
And the leaves are brown
And the groundis hard
Where have you gone?
I want to know

on the vacant sidewalk
I turn my coat
To the wind and prideful thought
That I stayed too long
And the hard hard truth
Of a bitter end
Where have you gone
My long lost friend

• chorus

will you say,”that’s how it goes
the world it turns
and the cold wind blows
and yes I’m gone
and I don’t much care
just let me go
I don’t want you here

• chorus

cause its so hard to move on
it hurts right down to the bone
yeah, it breaks my heart in two
it goes down like the night
curtains, cast and spotlight
I’ll wait alone for you
