Contrasts 03:08
A hard kiss with soft lips woke me up to the day Spent a long time on a short line and now I'm going another way A cold night in a warm light gave a good start to the year It's now or never because we're together just don't believe what you hear And all that aside don't you ask why I hold you so tight, all night Hold me and let me go Let black boots be buried in the snow
Left Behind 03:24
There is a life I left behind so full of sparkling bright lights it'll leave you blind And now it's hard to find anything that'll shine on through so I'm saving my eyes for you I met a world that was not real so numb and alone that there was nothing I could feel And now I cannot tell which direction I grew so I'm saving my hands for you And everything today is just as strange as it was yesterday the way that we still cannot say the words we all need anyway Oh, but right now the living's easier for some the ones who haven't noticed what they never say is costing days I found an ocean made of fear so large and loud its waves were all that I could hear And now the ringing's here, so it's true so I'm saving my ears for you For all the places that I've been I haven't seen a difference my hint's that we don't have the sense to know what's killing us and when Oh, but wait it's all the same the way we steal from ourselves, put it up, and marvel when it sells
Slowly slowing when the gears of motion are grinding down Only rolling eyes are what I find when I'm around But we didn't think it would make it this far, but it did and we don't have the rent So we don't need another load to hold We're gonna lose what we need most if we don't keep it close Lately it seems that we're obsessed with holding on too tight So oh well let's give ourselves a reason to believe that it's alright But we didn't know that it's been done before Oh, but it has we're sitting in the back of the class So we don't think we're allowed to make the noise We're gonna lose our only voice and we won't have a choice
And as the sunlight hits our footsteps we'll have gone as far as we can go Maybe pray for one more moon, or two, to keep us where we are before we go to blend in with the stars Even though there's promise in their shine they've seen their share of friends like these But whether or not they're true to you my answer's still the same and never would it be a waste of time And I hope that when you think of me there's not a place inside your heart that feels alone 'Cause like a man who cut his teeth away from where he'd grown I would always return home If I deserve someone better well please tell me where they might be found 'Cause in doing the things I do, I found you and that to me is a thought that I'd like to keep around Maybe ours will find some other hearts or maybe they will stand their ground but whichever way they go, I know, that we should not forget that remembering is an important part And I hope that being far away helps you realize what you want to be close to and if that isn't me, we'll I'll have to let that be but I'll have you know I'm not changing my mind There is something hidden in the heat making sure that we won't know what's been undercover but once it's frozen over there will be some time to clear the beat There are things you feel but cannot show that play themselves out in your head and though most of it is all for show, it should not go unsaid when you're then one that someone needs and you don't know And I hope that being so alone has changed your mind about the way that things were going, and when you run out of things to do it may turn out to be true you've had a change of heart worth showing
Friends 04:13
There are some friends that we have not seen in a while and last time that they came over they left some things behind Patiently waiting in their homes for us to call to tell them that they are welcome once again and for all But I don't want to be here when they come Our friends are going to the places we love most to see if they can track us down and have a toast To all their interests and the things that they brought with them And they say that next time they're coming they're bringing friends But I don't want to be there when they come We grow so lonesome and so a hand we do extend But the one that returns a grip that's firm will be our friends' Oh friends, please tell us, what it is you plan to do and if it's something we don't like we're coming after you But I'm not going to be here when they come
Hollow eyes and a sunken face told of better days inside But I know that it's hard to hide the race that you're running in your heart From the start it was hard when you lost your grip and started to slip to the side And it's true, there'll be better times for you oh but we've all got it too, let's live and learn So sweet was the perfect defeat and the trees over my shoulder asking why I let go But you know it only takes one oar to row yourself around in circles And it's true, there'll be better times for you oh but we've all got it too, let's live and learn No sleep will get you down, but not to bed, and the aching in your head, well it gets old But you know, when you're burning at both ends it'll leave you wishing for more wax and wicks to hold And I've waited a long time in the woods of Carolina wondering if I'll ever find the heart of that pine to build my fire and keep the light by my side
