Track Name: Looking Up To You
I was just a boy and feeling shy
Taking aim but not too high
Searching for the light
You, you were someone I was looking to
For what I was supposed to do
And what I thought was true
What have I to lose
Looking up to you

If I ask too many questions
Or give my words a heavy hand
I am just looking for some purpose
And hoping you will understand
And i I make you feel nervous
Or give back less than I demand
I am just looking for some purpose
And hoping you will understand me
Track Name: Circles Round My Mind
Last night in the living room
I was fighting off feeling old
Another year escapes
No matter how tightly I hold
Flash back to another room
And the memories I’ve ignored
Like staring out the window
After locking all the doors
Paranoid, driving circles round my mind
Falling backward, feeling fine

Think back to the better days
And the mystery of the song
The space inside a moment
We’ve been waiting for so long
Fall back on a fairy tale
When the last of your hope is gone
If nothing ever happens
How can anything go wrong
Miss the point, watch it circle round the drain
Falling backward, feel the same

Broken bottles on the ground
Never thought to pick them up
Until I heard the sound
Living lonely I was lost but now I’m found

Last night in the living room
I was shivering from the cold
Awake all night and wondering
How the story will unfold
Come back for some breathing room
And the memories I adore
The first time when I felt it
I had never wanted more
Tears of joy, driving circles round my mind
Falling backward, feeling fine
Track Name: Great Unknown
Been running in circles through a fiery field
Averting my eyes from signs as they have been revealed
I am gonna fill this page before my book is sealed
No longer afraid of being wrong or being real

Never wanted more than what I gave to you
Treated like a chore that you’re supposed to to
Cover up with silence what was always true
Never wanted more than what I gave to you

Alone in my room I lay awake and dream
Been blurring my vision, things are never what they seem
I could take a vacation, I could take one for the team
I could spend tonight in the glowing light of a TV screen

Never wanted more than what I gave to you
Treated like a chore that you’re supposed to to
Cover up with silence what was always true
Never wanted more than what I gave to you

Falling forward fast into the great unknown
This time ignore the past and let be alone
Been working toward the day we make this house a home
When I think about this world without it cuts me to the bone

Never wanted more than what I gave to you
Treated like a chore that you’re supposed to to
Cover up with silence what was always true
Never wanted more than what I gave to you
Track Name: Books You Never Read
Waiting for the words to write themselves
Like the books you never read on your shelf
Waiting for the song to start
Like the hopes collecting dust inside your heart

Fall back on what you know
When you’re killing time before the show
Lay back and close your eyes
Is this a version of yourself you recognize

The darkest night fades into day
All this waiting, wasting time away
Listen to yourself as you begin to say
Tell me everything is gonna be OK

Fall back on what you know
When you’re killing time before the show
Lay back and close your eyes
Is this a version of yourself you recognize

Another winter’s day all blanketed in white
Trying to find your way through the sleepless night
Not gonna walk away without putting up a fight
Takes a little time to see the light

Fall back on what you know
When you’re killing time before the show
Lay back and close your eyes
Is this a version of yourself you recognize
All you standing up for yourself
For your family, for your health
Or laying down and giving up
Are we out of time or out of luck
Track Name: Fall Out Of Line
Started out like a ghost
In the corner of my eye
Shadows dance like the coast
Where the waves come crashing
Wasted days, waking nights
Better watch out where you step
These walls are drowning out the sound
Or am I dreaming

When you love someone with your heart and mind
When you need someone like a friend of mine
When the feeling’s gone and it’s hard to find
When you fall out of line

Started out like a song
In the middle of the night
Sitting up, catch my breath
Stop from rolling over
Racing thoughts, can’t keep up
When the walls start closing in
This boy in drowning in the sound
Or am I dreaming

When you love someone with your heart and mind
When you need someone like a friend of mine
When the feeling’s gone and it’s hard to find
When you fall out of line

When you love someone with your heart and mind
When you need someone like a friend of mine
When the feeling’s gone and it’s hard to find
When you run out of time, fall out of line
Track Name: Searching For Sunlight
I may be the one you call
As the summer turns to fall
You might be the satellite
Guiding me back home tonight

Been driving all night
Been burning so bright
Searching for sunlight
More wrong than right

A restless heart isn’t hard to find
You might be my peace of mind
I will try to keep you warm
The calm that comes before the storm

Been driving all night
Been burning so bright
Searching for sunlight
More wrong than right

Been back and forth so many times I don’t know why
Been following a pathway written in the sky
Been stumbling through days that all but look the same
Been wide awake all night and calling out your name

Coming back to see you again
May not know the where or when
If you want to make me stay
Take your aim and fire away

Been driving all night
Been burning so bright
Searching for sunlight
More wrong than right
Track Name: Come Back Home
Moving boxes one by one
Pack them up until they’re done
If we stay
We might waste away
Patching walls and pushing brooms
Dusty floors in empty rooms
Where we could hide
Or we can go outside
And come back home

Wait for a version of your fate
That you make
From all the roads along the way
That you take
Carrying the weight of your mistakes
One day this will fade away

Stillness of suburban streets
Toss and turn between the sheets
The residue
Of the tried and true
Hanging frames and building shelves
Better versions of ourselves
Before we die
We can multiply
Or we can

Wait for a version of your fate
That you make
From all the roads along the way
That you take
Carrying the weight of your mistakes
One day this will fade away
Track Name: Want Love
Time waits for no one
No one waits for time
The things we take for granted
Are the things we leave behind
There’s a world between the things we see
And what we think we know
We are not what we carry
but what we let go

Lay your head like a weight upon my shoulder
Want love
Wanna love

I’ll believe it when I see it
Is the hallmark of time
Anger only ruins joy
A poison in the mind
To be here and to understand
The blessing and the curse
The pivot at the center and
The power in the verse
Lay your head like a weight upon my shoulder
Want love
Wanna love
Hold my hand in the space between your fingers
Want love
Wanna love

Needs that we meet and the ones that we let go of
Weeds in the wheat and the ways that we show love
Lead to retreat, we reach to grab a hold of what we love

Time waits for no one
No one waits for time
The things we take for granted
Are the things we leave behind
There’s a world between the things we see
And what we think we know
We are not what we carry
but what we let go

Lay your head like a weight upon my shoulder
Want love
Wanna love
Hold my hand in the space between your fingers
Want love
Wanna love
