Track Name: On the road
On the road
In the car
Going back now
Not too far

House is fading
Had some fun
The real journey
Has begun

We had to take a little time
To keep from losing our minds

Words were simple
For so long
Now they battle
Right and wrong

Day's not over
Chance is there
One more word
Could clean the air

We had to take a little time
To keep from losing our minds

If you could read my mind would you say what you always say?
If you could hear me out would you close your ears or walk away?
Empty words make empty nights
Lost perception found sight

We had to take a little time
We had to take a little time
We had to take a little time

Hold my hand, I'll take yours
We'll lay forever on these floors
Track Name: Woods
We went into the woods. To lose what we could. You brought the flashlight.

We left the lights on in the house. Deterring bandits protecting the mouse. He’d lived there before us.

Trees fallen down gave us seats on the ground
where you could

hold me, don’t scold me, I love you, love

We went back to the house. To try and find the mouse. He’d moved out.

No tiny kisses on the mouth. Just a tiny note left on the couch. Too bad we couldn’t read it.

Trees fallen down gave us seats on the ground
where you could

hold me, don’t scold me, I love you, love

I cried all night. Arms open wide
so you could

hold me, don’t scold me, I love you, love
Track Name: Apples
I'll buy you
A couple of apples
If you come back soon

There is not a time frame.
If they rot
I'll buy some brand new

And all my life I've waited for the light to show me when

And every time you go away the darkness doesn't end again

I can leave the selfish and the loathsome
After a rhyme
You can tie my head strings
play their music to brighten our time

You said I didn't need you it was time to go
I thought I'd never need you shows how much I know
Track Name: Long Time
You are just lying there
Running fingers through your hair
Wondering what the world has done to you.

You've barely just begun
you're not having any fun
Get off your ass. Stop playing the fool

It takes a long time
It takes a long time
To love yourself

It takes a long time
It takes a long time
To love yourself

I know its hard to start
you are sick of chasing your heart
Being afraid is not the sin.

You've got to throw away.
All the shit the magazines say
Selling a copy so what if they win?

It takes a long time
It takes a long time
to love yourself

It takes a long time
It takes a long time
to love yourself

I will lead you from the dark.
I know it too well
You just need to be the spark
Only you can release you
Only you can release you from the arms
Of your own hell
Track Name: Edge
Wait at the edge
Don't fly before
I get to you

I understand
It's hard to trust
That much is true

The spring awakes
The earth quakes
To be with you

You are someone
I can talk to at the edge of the world
You are someone
I can be with at the edge of the world
The edge of the world

Over that hill
Under that tree
It's all the same

The fire's out
The damage done
Enjoy the rain

The spring awakes
The earth quakes
To be with you

Chorus

The reason's not always clear why things happen
But they happen x2
Track Name: Lola
Make it feel better
That would be nice
A trip to Bermuda
Something boozy with ice

This weight is heavy
I have to let it go
It's dragging me down
and you I know

I have a theory
All great things come with ease
Struggle and hard work
Are the things in between

My face really hurts
Wearing this frown frown frown
It doesn't feel good
To let myself get down down down

This feeling is real
But look around
Look around

Chorus

Hold on x a million
