Track Name: Someday
someday

someday
when i’m old
and gray
i will call
out your name
to see
if you
stayed

never mind
never mind this soul
never mind
never mind
no no

the curls in your hair
draw a map
the curls in your hair
draw a map
lead me to places
never been

never mind
never mind this soul
never mind
never mind
no no
Track Name: Of Wire and Stone
of wire and stone

you will pull me down
you will hold me down
you’ll bury my head
you’ll bury me underground

you will lead me now
you will leave me now
on wings of fire and gold
on wings of wire and stone

i was walking a line
i was walking a line
i held my hand
toward the night sky

i was walking blind
i was walking blind
i held my hand
toward the light
Track Name: Sail
sail

and you sail out in the morning by the sun
and you sail out in the morning by the sun
and i know you’ve got your reasons for leaving
and i know you’ve got your needs and i’m not one

carolina’s in the corner on the shelf
carolina’s in the corner by herself
and she knows that this is not gonna work out
so she packs up all her things and steals away

and she sails out in the morning by the sun
and she sails out in the morning by the sun
and i know you’ve got your reasons for leaving
and i know you’ve got your needs and i’m not one
Track Name: I Started a Fire
i started a fire

i started a fire that led me to you
and you, you took my hand, made me feel life
but i started a war between me and you
now you, you don't come around anymore
Track Name: I Know, I Know, I Know
i know, i know, i know

i was raised
to believe
that the clouds
and the trees
were all one
in the same
in this world

but you
had it all
wore the crown
made of gold
that i just cant hold up
anymore

lady i know i know i know
you never wanna see me again
you always try to hurt me
not this time

yeah i know i know i know
you never wanna see me again
you always try to hurt me
not this time

as the days
fade away
and love
turns to pain
you’re left here wondering why
you ever came

and the pain
that you feel
yeah it schemes
and it steals
all the love you ever
had for me

lady i know i know i know
you never wanna see me again
you always try to hurt me
not this time

yeah i know i know i know
you never wanna see me again
you always try to hurt me
not this time
Track Name: In The Back Seat
in the back seat

i was in the backseat
of a chrystler sedan
covered head to toe
in the blood of another man
lord please forgive me
i know not what i do
i’m counting down the days
til i see you

now, we must go
it’s not what we expected
but it’s all we’ll ever know

now, we’re on our own
drowning in our sorrows
from every lie we ever told

i walked down to the river
to rinse my hands clean
and prayed to the lord above me
“please let this soul sleep”
but he had other plans now
he had other plans for me
it’s hard to think clearly
when you still haunt my dreams

now, we must go
it’s not what we expected
but it’s all we’ll ever know

now, we’re on our own
drowning in our sorrows
from every lie we ever told
Track Name: Five Hours
five hours

five hours to go
i've been sitting in the sun now
its been five long hours
since you left me

and you’ve been keeping secrets
but i cannot complain
cause ive got some secrets
ive been keeping too

you had a long life
but now its time to go
never fear
never doubt the unknown

cause i will
see you
soon

oh never fear
no never fear the unknown
cause the unknown is now
your closest friend
if ever comes a day
when you and i shall meet
well on that day i will tell you this

you had a long life
but now its time to go
never fear
never doubt the unknown

cause i will see you soon
i will
see you soon

you had a long life
but now its time to go
never fear
never doubt the unknown

i will
see you
soon
