Track Name: Without My Love
Dear me, Dear you whom I used to be.
We're out here killing time
like she lost the key to 
peace of mind.
But you're not safe here. You're not safe here, my dear.

It's rare that I take flight
knowing we're bound by what we both survive…

but you opened the door too wide,
to words like wolves and wolves like lies.

And are we safe here? Are we safe here, my dear?

You said I love you twice last night
to remind you yesterday may come without my love.

Yesterday may come without my love.

 Sometimes I hope I left.

Sometimes I hope I left.
Sometime I hope I will leave a scar.

Sometimes we have the means
to tell a tale of never grow to part.
But are we safe here? It could be such a pretty picture, my dear.



You said I love you twice last night
to remind you yesterday may come without my love.

Yesterday that may come without my love.



Oh my dear, my love

.

Dear me, Dear you whom I used to be.
Dear us, Dear all that we shall become. 

Let's be safe here. Perfectly safe here, my dear.
Track Name: Microscope
In my head I unsaid:
'I'm gonna leave you but someone is gonna to stay'.

Dissect this as you wish.

I'm still tearing at the seams of what I appear to you to be.



This could be all, this could be now,
this could be it, this could be never.
Is that why we try and trust again?



Well what if I la la la love, love you without restraint.

Even when la la la love dares to flirt with hate.

Oh it's a beautiful world if we let love lead.

So put away the microscope,
let's live in a big picture that paints us lucky.



Forget the uncertainty of our velocity, remember the gravity us.

Don't say anything too permanent.

Just know a place spent in could equal a place never been.



This could be all, this could be now,
this could be it, this could be never. 

Is that why we try and trust again?



What if I la la la love, love you without restraint.
Even when la la la love dares to flirt with hate.
It's a beautiful world when we let love lead.

So put away the microscope,
let's live in a big picture that paints us lucky.



Lucky...

Track Name: Come On Home to Me
You're restless, babe.
Letting plans slip through your hourglass like hands again.
How late you stay awake last night, staring at the moon,
watching it cut the sky like a knife?

Don't you know you're not alone?

Remember when I came home the music so loud I had to shout?
But then you held me and 
whispered don't ever leave 'cause this is all.
This is all we need.



That's the way it'll be, babe.
 That's the way it'll be.

That's the way it'll be, babe, if you come on home to me.



When I first laid eyes on you, babe,
I knew one day I'd never want to leave.

And here we are so let's never be worlds apart
when you're lying next to me.



Don't you know you're not alone?

Remember when you said If I die tonight
at least I'm the happiest I've been in my whole life?

Then we danced to no music and meant everything unsaid.



That's the way it'll be, babe.
 That's the way it'll be.

That's the way it'll be, babe, if you come on home to me.



That's the way it'll be, babe. That's the way it'll be.
That's the way I see it, babe, when you come on home to...



that locket in the drawer by your bedside,
the one you finally put a picture of me inside.

Sometimes it's foolish not to rush.
Sometimes it's foolish not to rush.



That's the way it'll be, babe.
 That's the way it'll be.

That's the way it'll be, babe, 
if you come on home to me.



That's the way it'll be, babe.
 That's the way it'll be.

That's the way I see it babe,
 when you come on home to me.



Baby, come on home to me.

Track Name: I Wasn't Done Dancing
Let's take a page out of that book.
Rewrite the path we took when we promised ourselves
we'd never do this again.

Penny-saver money-hater,
stop asking time to buy peace of mind.



Just dance alone with the lights low,
floating in all we don't dare dream of.



Welcome to the future. 

Our only end.

Guess I'm wondering 'cause no one told me not to.

On second thought I wasn't done dancing.

Were you?



Build sand castles way too close to shore.
Fold paper planes fly them over the fire.

Stay a little later, we can talk to strangers,
ignore red flag danger, leap before we look.

Let's dance alone with the lights low,
floating in all we don't dare dream of.



Welcome to the future. 

Our only end.

Guess I'm wondering 'cause no one told me not to.

On second on thought I wasn't done dancing.

Were you?



Dear Life, your fairness may rest while we're still wide awake.



Welcome to the future. 

Our only end.
Guess I'm wondering 'cause no one told me not to.

On second on thought I wasn't done dancing.
No. On second on thought I wasn't done dancing.

Were you?
Track Name: Before the Fade
Turn down the lights. Turn off the news.
That bottle was full earlier this afternoon.

We can't get it right, but you said nothing's wrong with hoping
for something 
that you've had all along.

I'll miss these days when they're gone. 

I will miss these days when they're gone. 



But now we're driving fast, nothing left to lose,
save for all we've never had.

So don't go slowing down or painting new roads into old highways of doubt, 'cause a promise is as a promise does
and you promised me that we'd burn out before the fade.



Should we stay up too late? Sleep the day away on purpose
'cause there ain't no purpose
to be found?
Or shall we declare war on what we've grown to be?

I'm starting to hope for something I've never seen.



I'll miss these days when there gone.
I will miss these days when they're gone.

But now we're driving fast, nothing left to lose,
save for all we've never had.

So don't go slowing down or painting new roads into old highways of doubt.

I'll miss these days when I'm gone.
Maybe I missed them all along.

But now we're driving fast, nothing left to lose,
save for all we've never had.

So don't go slowing down or painting new roads into old highways of doubt, 'cause a promise is as a promise does
and you promised me that we'd burn out before the fade.
Track Name: Paper Days
The older I get, the less that I know.

The longer I live, the less that I grow
accustomed to letting go.

Oh all I know, all I know is that old friends are hard to find,
lovers may come and go, but someday is now.

Someday is now.



If there's a place for words let's build our quiet in between.

We'll bridge the silence that leads to what allows us to be
accustomed to letting go.

Oh all I know, all I know is that old friends are hard to find,
lovers may come and go but someday is now,
Someday is now.

I remember when you said time can't buy you wisdom
and wisdom, no, she can't buy you time.

Our paper days.
Have they thrown us all away.



The older I get, the less that I know.
The longer I live, the more I hope to grow.

Oh our days, these paper days.
