Track Name: Indoor Voices
Indoor Voices:

I'm getting tired of being told
to live in the moment
when all I want is my bed
and the sounds of the ocean.

With hoods pulled tight
and our sleeves covering our hands
it's getting harder to sleep
and we never seem to dream.
It's getting harder to sleep
we're always tossing and turning.

And I'm getting tired
of being told that
"you're only one person to the world"
when to one person you could be the world.

With hoods pulled tight
and our sleeves covering our hands
it's getting harder to sleep
and we never seem to dream.
It's getting harder to sleep
we're always tossing and turning.

There is nothing in the dark
that wasn't there in the light
but there's an innocence in everyone
that this world can't take away
as hard as it tries.

I always seem to relate to strays
waiting for someone to come along and take them away
we're always waiting for someone,
waiting for someone.

I always seem to relate to strays
waiting for someone to come along and take me away
to give me all the attention,
the attention that we all crave.

(There is nothing in the dark
that wasn't there in the light.)
Track Name: 1978
1978:

She said
"Take a step back but please keep me in frame."
So I spent the next five years
standing in your way
I walked in with you alone
I'm walking out with you alone.

And I know just how you'd get
back at me
If I said that these songs
were about you.
You'd cry and say:
"I never meant to make you feel this way"
You'd cry and say:
"well it's been done, and it's too late"

Step back, but please keep me in frame
(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)
and I spent the next five years standing in your way.

I walked in with you alone
I'm walking out with you alone.
And it's too late.

and all that I have left
to give you now
to is a poor gift and that's myself.

She said
"take a step back,
but please keep me in frame"
(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)
and I spent so many years
just standing in your way

you walk in with me alone
and you walk out with me alone.

If I told you this song was about you.
(you'd cry and say, cry and say)
"I never meant to make you feel this way."

If I told you that this song was about you.
(you'd cry and say, cry and say)
its been done and it's too late.
Track Name: Please, Head North (Acoustic
Please, Head North:

After tonight,
I just can't be alone
driving home beneath the stoplights
They’re holding me in suspense.
but that's just the way it is I guess
For those of us who move too fast

and I wish that I could say
That I'm wishing you the best
(But I can’t, but I can't.)

So I’ll write it out on paper
to remember every word
For everything I’ve lost and found
inside of every verse
These are my directions to you:
Please, head north.

Voices scream inside of me.
Well, “Maybe I’m just cursed.”
(Just like they say),
maybe I’m just cursed.

I’m always hoping for the best
Maybe I’m just cursed.
I’m always hoping for the best
Preparing for the worst

So please, head north.
Maybe I was right,
maybe I was wrong
I just can’t write another one
of these summer songs
Oh please
not another sad, sad song,
You’ll find me hanging on every word
(on every word)

It kills you to know
this world, it owes you nothing.
So just forget what you’re expecting
You’ll find half what you deserve.
Track Name: For the World (Acoustic)
For The World:

The last thing you said to me was this
"I wouldn't trade you for the world"
(I couldn't trade you for the world)
Because in the moment I knew
how it truly felt to be loved unconditionally.
When you held me on the back porch underneath the setting sun.
You are the torch that lights the way through the darkest times in my life.
Like coals that would burn beneath my feet to keep me moving on.
Will you sing me to sleep the way you did when I was young.
When you held me on the back porch underneath the setting sun.
I got time to kill but I wont waste a second cause
I've grown tired of waiting and wasting away.
Right now it seems all I know and love is gone
Except my beat up guitar and unfinished songs.
At least I finished this one.
(The last thing you said to me was this
"I wouldn't trade you for the world")
Track Name: Just Go, Just Leave
Just Go, Just Leave.:

I'm no good now
and I'm not sure
that I ever was.
Apologies are all thats left of me now.
Crying hard into my arms
I'll always be the lonely.
I'll always be
I'll always be
I'll always
and I know that
it's easier to get there
then it ever is to leave
but I think it's just the other way for me.
You know I am object
who is stuck inside your pocket,
you use me as you please.
So please use me.
Apologies are all thats left of me.
Crying hard into my arms,
I'll always be,
I'm no good now and I never was.
I'll always be
I'll always be
I'll always be.
Track Name: Castaway (Acoustic)
Castaway:

When I walked down to the shore,
I watched the water tear
you away from me.
So I cried out loud,
I cried out to you but I was to late.
I was too late.
So I went inside and felt a strange feeling over me.
If I had reach out to you
I could have kept you safe.
but now you're out there in the current
buried underneath the waves.
and our past flashed right before my eyes.
as I stood there motionless trapped in disbelief.
So many times and so many moments
that we should have shared
Are now buried underneath the waves.
I just wish I could tell you.
That I don't expect you to forgive me or to forget.
I'll just walk around this lifeless house singing songs. I hope they catch your ear.
You see right through me.
I'll look up and down the coast.
Track Name: I Hope This Finds You Well (Acoustic)
Hope This Finds You Well:

You were walking down the dead end streets
while I was chasing echoes.
Just trying to catch
familiar voices.
But all I'm hearing is this:
"Your choices lead you down this road"
so if you're walking all alone

Is that you,
did you get lost, well I did too.
Did you get lost.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
There's no hope in
"live and learn"
Maybe you got what you deserved.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
There's no future when every bridge is burned.

Is there any hope left for tomorrow
or are we just buying time.
Looking to an empty sky
so we don't have to look into our lives.

Is that you,
did you get lost, well I did too.
Did you get lost.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
There's no hope in
"live and learn"
Maybe you got what you deserved.
Maybe you got what you deserved.
There's no future when every bridge is burned.

and if you get the love you give the world
then you got what you deserved
and if I get the love you give the world
then I got what I deserved.
Track Name: Stay Home (Acoustic)
Stay Home:

So many days and nights of my life escape.
It always fades away with time.
(The color fades away)
It's this feeling that has me going nowhere,
gaining nothing at all.
If anyone should find you
staring up at the unending sky.
What if I was smiling and running into your arms.
(What would you say.)
Would you see then what I see now.
(Keep running, keep shining on)
I'd put my ear against your heart
to keep the beat forever
(Keep running) and hum it like my favorite song.
It's safe to say life seems hopeless.
(We are all alone)
It's this feeling that brings me closer and closer to the end.
before this home becomes your casket
and you're buried six feet beneath the ground.
Those starry eyes have lost their shine.
There's reason why I've made it this far without you.
You had your shot this ones mine I'm taking aim
so pull the trigger.
