The Sound 03:56
Forty thousand miles, your feet are bleeding It’s been a long, long while since you’ve heard a friendly greeting Something honest, something pure You were once open, you were once sure And like a habit that liked you, so stayed You learned just how to keep all of the yearning away One day you woke up in the cold November light Packed your things, walked away, left it all behind But I’ve been feeling it Like a murmur under my skin Sirens calling me back to shore And I can hear the thumping Of ghost feet on the ground I may never sing again But I can’t seem to leave the sound You’ll never amount to much, you’re not worth a lot I’m my own worst nightmare, I’m the only friend I’ve ever got I used to think I knew the way Used to believe in my own plans Suddenly everything just changed And I can’t see it, from where I stand When everything is slipping through your fingers like sand You’re tired and you’re lonely and you just don’t understand You could throw your chest aboard and let it sink For the tide to wash away, pages fading into ink But I’ve been feeling it Like a murmur under my skin Sirens calling me back to shore And I can hear the thumping Of ghost feet on the ground I may never sing again But I can’t seem to leave the sound Ooh ah Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah Ooh ah Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah Ahh ahh ahh ahh Ooh ah Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah And I’ve been sleeping On all of my dreams But nothing is better Than bursting at the seams Burning fire, knee deep in failure In my reflection stands a stranger But I’ve been feeling it Like a murmur under my skin Sirens calling me back to shore And I can hear the thumping Of ghost feet on the ground I may never sing again But I can’t seem to leave the sound

Big City 05:15
Before she got into her car and Pulled out of the driveway She pulled me in close I thought she'd never let go She said, "I don't think that You really belong here I think you need to get out of this place Every single day it's the same routine The same places, faces, the same old scene And nothing's ever as exciting as it's cracked up to be Maybe all I really want is a brand new me I live in a big city That feels like a very small town Where all the people Know your name But pretend not to see you When you're around He cornered me at the bar Put his hands round my waist Said he was bored Didn't even bother with names Well, it's not like he would've Needed them anyway He said, "At this point, I'd go home with anything" Oh how I watched you from afar And wished this could be real But you didn't want me You wanted something to feel And I can't help you Can't even help myself I've been lonely too And there's been no one else I live in a big city That feels like a very small town Where all the people Know your name But pretend not to see you When you're around And I feel like just another cog in the wheel All the time Wish I had something real and pure and beautiful I could call mine I base my value on other people But there's no one around All of my imaginary lovers Packed up their things and drowned I live in a big city I live in a big city That feels like a very small town Where all the people Know your name But pretend not to see you Pretend you don't I live in a big city That feels like a very small town Where all the people Know your name But pretend not to see you When you're around She said, "I don't think that You really belong here I think you need to get out of this place"

Here he comes Tall, dark, and beautiful And it's like The answer to a secret prayer deep in your heart You hope to God nobody else hears You think it might just be the end of everything you know And it's like pure electricity When he looks your way And you wonder if he might Think about you the way you've been Thinking about him too ‘Cause honey Oh, hey this could be love Someday might just be love You can’t be sure but This could be love Don't look now He might catch you breathing And notice that he catches your breath He's so close You could reach out and touch him But you won't - well, maybe just not yet In his eyes is a universe You'd like to float in for Lightyears at a time And you think He's got some dirty little secret You don't know yet but One day you just might 'Cause Oh, hey this could be love Someday might just be love You can’t be sure but This could be love Could be love There's a secret that you'll find Deep inside your peace of mind You know there's parts of him you imagined up Some kind of cool, stoic fairytale prince He'll never live up to it But reality’s better than dreams anyway Here he comes Tall, dark, and impossible to figure out What's he really all about? And you wonder Does he say what he really means to say Cause you could kiss the bruises away Oh, hey this could be love Someday might just be love Play your cards right, babe You could be walking into something magic And oh, hey this could be love You can't be sure But this could be love Could be love Here he comes Tall, dark, and impossible to figure out What's he really all about?

Good Morning 03:38
One, two, three, four Your feet barely make a noise As you’re padding ‘cross the carpet Through the empty halls Early Saturday morning and The sunlight through the window shines And you can see the dust motes Leaving the world behind And you’re all alone Maybe the stagnant silence is All you’ll ever own The sunrise always comes quicker than You’ll ever be ready for And you’ve never felt more at home Dawn is always sleepy And you wish she’d stay that way Because everything’s much better than When everyone’s awake The TV sitting, isolated Beckons like a peaceful ghost You flip through the channels Flickering lights, they love you most And you’re all alone Maybe the stagnant silence is All you’ll ever own The sunrise always comes quicker than You’ll ever be ready for And you’ve never felt more at home Never mind the chatter now You don’t hear it yet somehow Everybody’s dreaming still ‘Bout lives they’ll never ever fill You know they’ll tell you later As if there’s nothing greater And you’re all alone Maybe the stagnant silence is All you’ll ever own The sunrise always comes quicker than You’ll ever be ready for And you’ve never felt more at home Gray lights muted through the blinds Losing track of space and time For once, the world is mine Just for a little while Just for a little while

Yes 04:35
Baby - hey, is it cool if I call you baby? Tell me the truth, have you had a drink lately? Take a swig - no, take the entire bottle, I Feel like forgetting myself tonight Cloudy eyes raging in like a storm I'd like to dance in your rain for a while I don’t mind the thunder, have I ever told you I’m fond of the cold You won't remember me tomorrow But you'll call me two Wednesdays from now Cause you have a show You'll ask if I'd like to go You know I'll say no, but tonight I'm wearing a pretty dress Maybe I'd like to know for once how it feels to say yes You look at me like a tangible secret Flip a coin and tell me I can keep it I can't see through your cigarette smoke and mirrors Red hot whiskey laced dreamer Oh honey, I'll confess I don't understand What I'm doing here with my face in your hands You tell me you'd like to talk about dreams But somehow I think you've got other plans You won't remember me tomorrow But you'll call me two Wednesdays from now Cause you have a show You'll ask if I'd like to go You know I'll say no, but tonight I'm wearing a pretty dress Maybe I'd like to know for once how it feels to say yes And there he goes, they all say Handsome as a tall dark charmer in a matinee He'll take you for granted, if only you should be so lucky Well, I'd like to decide But I haven't quite made up my mind If I should call you baby If I should dance in your rain If I should pull you in for a kiss If I should pass on the pain You won't remember me tomorrow But you'll call me two Wednesdays from now Cause you have a show You'll ask if I'd like to go You know I'll say no, but tonight I'm wearing a pretty dress Yes Alright, okay, why the hell not? Cloudy eyes raging in like a storm I'd like to dance in your rain for a while

I Wish 04:45
There’s a word for this, you know And it goes And it goes Stolen glances from across the room You want me And I want you Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh I wish you would Take me home You and I both know What we’re afraid to show The other night I dreamt of your kiss And it felt like this And it felt like this I’m a little lonely Friday night Is there anywhere That you need to be Stay with me Stay with me I wish you would Take me home You and I both know What we’re afraid to show Wrap me in the warmth Of the bridge of your nose Like so Like so I wanna sit by you and read my books While you take down notes And forget you have to go One day, I’ll look up into your face And we’ll laugh and both say “Remember when we were young?” And we’ll watch the cars go by Fog rolling in like sea tide I’ll memorize your smile And you’ll hold me When it gets cold Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh
