• Gone

    Gone

     

    I don’t know the truth, but I’ll be there soon

    Clock are growing legs, hands weren’t enough

    I could jump out of my skin, still be right here

    Now can be so hard when your mind is far

     

    Gone

    Gone, gone, gone

    Gone

    I’m long gone

     

    Can we try again, just for the night?

    Our hands don’t seem to fit when the future creeps in

    Thinking what to say while your words pass by me

    Say I’d hear you out but the present has its doubts

    Gone

    Gone, gone, gone

    Gone

  • True North

    True North

     

    I’ve been going North the whole time

    Pondering the destination and what it looks like

    But I missed it all, I missed it all

     

    Why are my mistakes deemed flaws?

    On wrong turn and it defines who we are

    But it’s the journey that writes the song

     

    I know that the travel’s long and the destination unsure

    But I’ll hold on to true north, and let the road show me it all

     

    I’ll point at you when you fall from your path

    To dust mine off of all the broken mirrored glass

    We’d do anything to not see ourselves

     

    I know that the travel’s long and the destination unsure

    But I’ll hold on to true north, and let the road show me it all

     

    So the road it turns

    And the light shines on

    True north it is real, it’s real

     

    I know that the travel’s long and the destination unsure

    But I’ll hold on to true north, and let the road show me it all

  • Midland

    Midland

     

    How could you, how could you conquer this?

    Says he’s fair to midland but he doesn’t know where midland is

    He cries because he feels too much

    Or does he cry because he doesn’t feel enough

     

    He’s lost in his own estate

    Cant see his thoughts before they float away

    But one never goes too far astray

    Why don’t you float honey?

    Float on back to me

     

    Weighed by fear, fear of holding on

    But its fear he’s holding on to for far too long

    Closed his eyes imagined a different place

    But with his eyes closed he only sees one face

     

    He’s lost in his own estate

    Cant see his thoughts before they float away

    But one never goes too far astray

    Why don’t you float honey?

    Float on back to me

  • 14

    14

     

    I was fourteen years old when I took my first breath

    That whiskey and that heroin helped me grow my new skin

    Was it the feeling or the taste that helped me come back again?

    Or the cold embrace of those that counted my sins

    I was intrigued by the flame as it burned my hand, but I lit it again

     

    Sit down and meet my friend trouble and meet my friend pain

    Woke up next to a girl and I only knew the bottles name

    So I lit up a smoke and convinced myself I was sane

    But you can’t get too far when you keep hoppin’ on the same train

    Just cause’ I was feeling good don’t mean I was feeling right

     

    Well you’re not a badass when you’re all alone

    Does the heart still break when no one hears it fall?

    Could this be it could I have seen it all?

    Same thing you left with is what brought you home

     

    Bartender said, come on Sam join us at the end of the bar

    Said just fill me to the brim and I’ll enjoy my party of one

    Now pour me another and I’ll take it with me for the road

    I like my liquor warm and I keep my shoulders cold

    But you can’t no you can’t sit still but you got nowhere to go

  • Forever

    Forever

     

    Mysteries lay hidden behind the teeth of the wind

    Often branches sever like a man from his kin.

    These big steps were measures to show the world it was him

    See the gates swing open let the music begin

     

    Don’t sleep here forever

    Swing low to the ground

    Our anchor and tether

    See you soon in forever

     

    Time won’t wait in the wings like the birds

    Its place is moving round the speed and the din

    She’s serves these headwinds like a flag on a stick

    Destiny hovers as the clouds move rush on in

     

    Don’t sleep here forever

    Swing low to the ground

    Our anchor and tether

    See you soon in forever

     

    Faintest sound pulls me from deep long stare

    My mind is swimming through the night’s thick black air

    Red moon burns bright like a warm ancient flare

    Three stars they flicker as they suspect I am aware

     

    Don’t sleep here forever

    Swing low to the ground

    Our anchor and tether

    See you soon in forever

  • December

    December

     

    I’d walk that line if it didn’t spin me out

    I’d conquer my fears if my mind didn’t have two mouths

    I’d carry that weight if you were in my arms

    I’d hit the ground if you were going down

     

    I’ll remember the taste in my mouth

    It’s hot in December, the middle of a drought

    But I feel the rain, and I’m shivering

    I miss you when you’re gone and I’m gone when you’re here

     

    Now am I the risk that you are willing to take

    I’m the jump the fall am I the wind beneath your wings?

    Its been two years since I picked up that drink

    But ill be honest, sometimes I still sink

    I’ll remember the taste in my mouth

    It’s hot in December, the middle of a drought

    But I feel the rain, and I’m shivering

    I miss you when you’re gone and I’m gone when you’re here

     

    I’m too far away to know what to say

    The worst may be over but there’s still a price to pay

    I could speak from the heart but my heart doesn’t know your way

    So I’ll let time breathe and ill let you speak

     

    I’ll remember the taste in my mouth

    It’s hot in December, the middle of a drought

    But I feel the rain, and I’m shivering

    I miss you when you’re gone and I’m gone when you’re here

  • Run

    Run

     

    Darling look what you’ve done to me

    Don’t you know I’ve lost control

    Darling why do you run from me?

    The back of you is all I know

     

    Darling you’re so cold to me

    I breathe you in just to feel the burn

    Darling one last chance is all I need

    You love to watch me bleed

     

    So run darling run, run from it all

    Cause’ you’ll shine brighter when I’m gone

    So run darling run, run from it all

    I feel it in my bones when you’re not home

     

    Darling why did I dig so deep?

    Buried deeper than I dug

    Darling you’re hardly listening

    Start giving a fuck

     

    So run darling run, run from it all

    Cause’ you’ll shine brighter when I’m gone

    So run darling run, run from it all

    I feel it in my bones when you’re not home

     

    I’ll leave you when I fall

    I’ll love you when I can’t get back up

     

    So run darling run, run from it all

    Cause’ you’ll shine brighter when I’m gone

    So run darling run, run from it all

    I feel it in my bones when you’re not home

  • Sure Thing

    Sure Thing

     

    I know something wrong is going on here

    Time spent lands apart grows us closer

    Now I’m nothing short of tired baby

    But you’re scent is on my pillow can’t sleep at all

     

    Forgot to tell you love could be so debilitating

    Am I stronger for it or am I slowly fading?

    No I can’t figure you out, without a doubt

     

    I don’t mind the time it takes

    Dawn is here but the clouds won’t break

    I can feel the heat but it’s still hard to wait on a sure thing

     

    Is the string short or is it just wound up?

    I’d hold you closer but it’s just my luck that I’d squeeze too tight and you’d slip out of sight

     

    Saw you Saturday the sun was out to play

    Felt your heartbeat Sunday and I knew you had something to say

    But don’t speak, I feel the same

     

    I don’t mind the time it takes

    Dawn is here but the clouds won’t break

    I can feel the heat but it’s still hard to wait on a sure thing

     

  • Old Soul

    Old Soul

     

    You were the best that I could have

    Thought you were the best that I could ever have

    But I inhale and it pulls me apart

    But you’re already gone

     

    I trip over the words you say

    On the ledge and only then I pray

    I hit the ground I’m well we’re here

    Looked around you’re nowhere near

     

    I can’t no I can’t go home without you

    But I have to

    No I can’t no I can’t find all the pieces

    Just let me break dear

    Just let me break here

     

    It’s an awful site when things shatter

    But beauty dwells in the piecing back together

    I’m broken down please make me whole

    Looked around, I’m all alone

     

    I can’t no I can’t go home without you

    But I have to

    No I can’t no I can’t find all the pieces

    Just let me break dear

    Just let me break here

     

    I’ve been told that you break when you’re old, but I’ve got an old soul my dear

    I’ve been told that you break when you’re old, but I’ve got an old soul my dear

     

    But you’re already gone

    But you’re already gone

     

  • War

    War

     

    She wakes up early, turns on the lights

    Kids up waiting for daddy all night

    He’s been drinking, for him the whiskey’s right and the tears are fine

     

    Oh happiness, it’s a war

    The cup is full. The cup is gone.

    But we’re not done.

     

    He’s surrounded by gold

    But with no wife and no children he feels he’s just growing old

    He wants to give it all away

    But the world keeps saying that if you look alright you’ll feel alright

     

    Oh happiness, it’s a war

    The cup is full. The cup is gone.

    But we’re not done

    No we’re not done

    No we’re not done

    No we’re not done

     

    She’s been thinking, it’s only what you perceive

    Cause’ if I see happiness in you then I can find it in me
