Track Name: Woken Up
yesterday I woke up and I found
and I found that I could not get up
this was impossible and I didn’t know why
when I tried my feet were covered in
a heavy thing that would not let in
and while I waited I was crying to get out
and then something came calling
with a voice so loud it shook my heart
and everything around me crashed down
and I fell
I fell apart

cause I’m living in this world
whether you like it or not
and I was dreaming for a while
but now I feel it
now I feel it
and I have woken up

now the voice keeps talking to me
and I walk daily in my broken neck
I tell it I am ready and I know
that it listens
that it listens to me
Track Name: Oval
I’ve been tired of late
I can’t sleep too much
yeah, sleep’s on my mind
but so is she and I can’t find the time
for both of them

all that keeps walking through my head
is the thought of her as I lie in bed
and the love she gave
is a love I won’t forgive

hallelujah

I’ve been sleeping in late
and I don’t want to wake up
cause her voice is in the night
and I’m afraid that if I wake up
I might not hear her again

all that keeps talking in my head
are the words the two of us have said
and the love we gave
is a love that I’ll regret

hallelujah

all that keeps walking through my head
is the thought of her as I lie in bed
and the love she gave
is a love she didn’t admit
Track Name: Leaves
when did your love go away
can you remember the day
and did he promise he’d stay and
still go ahead and leave

and have you found love since then
or did he say let’s be friends
and did it hurt you cause
I don’t want love to hurt again
no, I don’t want love to hurt again

I’m waiting for something
something in you that tells me to move
it’s not there

so do I walk down a line
where I will see you in time
and where the rhythm of brine
meets the sand where I stand alone

should I reflect while I wait
out in the lighthouse’s wake
or should sit as the tide
creeps on in on you again
Track Name: The Devil has a Pretty Voice
the devil has a pretty voice
the devil has a pretty voice
the devil has a pretty voice
but if you listen, you’re the fool that I became

the devil wears a pretty dress
the devil wears a pretty dress
the devil wears a pretty dress
but if you start dancing, the song is never going to end

the devil has pretty eyes
the devil has pretty eyes
the devil has pretty eyes
but don’t get caught staring, because she doesn’t get mad

the devil has a pretty smile
the devil has a pretty smile
the devil has a pretty smile
but her teeth are so white because she eats so well
Track Name: Pancakes (One of these Days)
are you eating alone again
I didn’t mean to interrupt
if there’s any way I can serve you
dear, speak up
how does your back feel from yesterday
when you said you were pulling my weight
if that’s the way you feel, then enough is enough
and I’m late

one of these days you’re gonna feel lonely
one of these days you’ll feel hollowed out
and since right now you’re content without me
I’ll find myself out

and just how long have you felt this way
I wish I would have known before
the funny thing is that last week
you didn’t sound so sore
well then this morning should have been a relief
not having to look at my green eyes
but they were open as I heard you leave
the closing door is no longer a surprise

one of these days you’re gonna feel lonely
one of these days you’ll feel hollowed out
and since right now you’re content without me
I’ll find myself out

and I’ve been waiting so long
on something I thought I’d found
but it took me this long to notice
she’d never turned around

one of these days you’re gonna feel lonely
one of these days you’ll feel hollowed out
and since right now you’re content without me
I’ll find myself out
Track Name: Take his Rose
don’t hurt him too bad if he asks you
to take his rose
don’t hurt him too bad cause he’s so in love
but I’m sure that you already know

cause his eyes would tell you
the words that he writes in the dark
you don’t have to let him down gently
he’ll break his own heart

but she let him down
and laid his head on the ground
she took his rose into her soft hands
and left without a sound

the same voice that was crying out “murder”
you never heard behind the press of her lips
did you hear as she whispered it’s over
or were you eclipsed?

don’t hurt him too bad’s what I asked you
I didn’t think you’d take his rose
but it’s you that it hurt
and I feel like I jerk
it was I that held the thorns I suppose
Track Name: Rain on Monday
trickle down the outside of the pane
tickle the sound inside my brain

are your eyes still as green
as the rain makes the grass
because I’m counting the drops
as a million go past
but I’m always watching one
I’m always watching one

go as cold as the streams that she runs past
we both know that nothing will last
no time to dream in the night
your last breath will come at first light

drumming wet on the windowsill
watching them tracing with water-made quills

you’re halfway down and you’re not slowing up
that green pleads for me to extend my cup
but you were born with only a surface to slide
that gives a fast girl nowhere to hide
but I’m always watching you
I’ll try but
I’m always watching you

go as cold as the streams that she runs past
we both know that nothing will last
no time to dream in the night
your last breath will come at first light

it’s a quick draw you made down the side of my pane
I’d miss you if the others weren’t tapping my brain

cold as the streams that she runs past
we both know that nothing will last
no time to dream in the night
your last breath will come at first light

we can’t because you will and I won’t
we can’t because I will and you won’t
Track Name: After the Washout
and I wish I wasn’t a guy but I am and I fall just like the rest
and I didn’t want you to cry but I tried and I was sensitive at best
and if I thought the tears would stop at my touch then I’d put my hands to use
and every time our skin collides we both wind up being bruised

and now I’m feeling alone

and I wish I could apologize but I don’t know what to say
and even if I knew the words you wouldn’t want me to pay
and I guess that’s why we can’t relate cause we both think we know the truth
and I’m about to make my move to leave your ache across the booth

and now I’m feeling alone

and do you think it was a selfish move to walk out of your life
and it shakes me every time I think of how I saw you as my wife
and there’s a part of me inside of you that I’ll never get back
and what I pray is that the lord would heal us both of what we lack

and now I’m feeling alone
Track Name: Sarah White Song
people pass by
just outside my window where the wall meets the sky
people pass by
slipping along a grey road and I never catch their eye

people pass by
but their hearts/eyes speak what their bodies have been trying to lie
people pass by
would I spot her only knowing how she feels inside

quiet tonight
wondering why I want someone here, laying by my side
quiet tonight
wondering if she only walks beneath the moonlight

the stream outside my window’s always changing
one comes by it won’t come back the same
for every tear and those who don’t know fear
I’ll remain

people pass by
just outside my window where the wall meets the sky
people pass by
slipping along a grey road and I never catch their eye
