Track Name: If Things Had Gone Our Way
Come around you said I'll be waiting there
Saw the moon rise right as the last train left
Left the lights on stones thrown at window panes
And you said
My name

And I knew that I'd find you at the shore
But the tide don't care what you're waiting for
As my signal fire drowned beneath the waves

Did I hear you say
My name

I guess I knew it from the start
A one way broken heart
But who's to say
If things had gone our way

Come along you don't need to be alone
Call me when you can so I know you're home
Tell me all I learned and I'll try to forget

And just say just say
My name

Somethings are unavoidable
And the rest, I don't know
But who's to say
If things had gone our way
Track Name: Double Down
I said I would quit while I’m a whisper ahead
But all of a sudden I’m a gambling man

Sometimes it’s like it’s all against us
This world is a rigged lottery
But you know I can’t help but double down on you and me

Now reason and making sense so meaningless
I’m looking for reasons to be careless

And I can’t say that you didn’t warn me
But somehow that don’t mean a thing
You know I can’t but double down on you and me
How can I say heaven help me
It’s not something that I believe
But you know I can’t help but double down on you and me

All we lost
Stacking up
But I’m not giving up on us
Losing track
Of the cost
But I’m not giving up on us
All we had
All we lost
But I’m not giving up on us
All we had
All we lost
But I’m not giving up on us
Track Name: Let Me Down Easy
Spending all my dreams
Wanting to believe
Wasting all my breath
Words you never said

If I can’t change your mind

Just let me down easy

Backlit on the pier
Said you’d meet me there
On the line between
Truth and what you mean

If I can’t change your mind

Just let me down easy
Track Name: When Does It Get Easier
If time is such a perfect healer
If what don't kill you makes you strong
And if tomorrow is a new day
Then when’s tomorrow gonna come?

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?

If practice really makes perfection
If everybody gets their turn
If every heartache is a lesson
Then when will I ever learn

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?

If sunshine always follows rain
And good things come to those who wait
How long have I got to wait?

I'm not trying to be impatient
But I feel like I've done my part
I know it comes when you stop trying
But I keep trying so damn hard

When does it get easier?
When does it get easier?
Track Name: All Good
I thought that I had it in my head
The words if I ever saw you again
I’d tell you everything I never did
But is it easier said than done?

In spite of all of the times that I
Have played this moment through in my mind
Now you’re here and all I can do is try
To catch you up on the basic stuff

I drink a little more than I used to
I care a little less than I did
I sleep a little worse now without you
I get a little tired of everything
I get a little lost thinking bout you
I get a little pain in my chest
I get a little scared that this will never end
But other than that
It’s all good

I thought that I had it memorized
I wrote and rewrote them a thousand times
But you’re here and it’s all I can do to try
Small talk and the basic stuff

I drink a little more than I used to
I care a little less than I did
I sleep a little worse now without you
I get a little tired of everything
I get a little lost thinking bout you
I get a little pain in my chest
I get a little scared that this will never end
But other than that
It’s all good
Track Name: Echo
Have you ever known
Cause I’ve never known
Something so ill fated

And if there’s anything
That could make me believe
It’s our love desecrated

After the curtain falls
And the stars go cold
And the moon drifts away
When there’s nothing left
But mistakes and regrets
My love for you
Will remain
Cause this echo won’t ever fade

Can you hear me you now
Through the noise somehow
Face to face one last time

Under neon lights
Realer than real life
Searching for a sign
So give me a sign

After the curtain falls
And the stars go cold
And the moon drifts away
When there’s nothing left
But mistakes and regrets
My love for you
Will remain
Cause this echo won’t ever fade

No matter how dark
No matter cold
We’ll echo

After it’s said and done
And this hope is gone
And the moon drifts away
When there’s nothing left
The mistakes and regrets
My love for you
Will remain
Cause this echo won’t ever fade
No matter what else slips away
This echo won’t ever fade
Track Name: We Did
True love speaks between the lines
Don't need words at all
Keep them all inside of you

True love can't be anchored to
The ground beneath her feet
There’s nothing on Earth you can do

You can’t ever prove what you can prove
Nobody can really have the truth
But if anybody ever did
We did.

Looking back I always knew
It would come to this
Nothing stops the world from turning

You can’t ever prove what you can prove
Nobody can really have the truth
But if anybody ever did
We did.

If anybody had true love, true love
We did.
Track Name: Fall In
We could try to dim the colour
We could try to stop the world
We could try to make our hearts say
Nothing, not a single word

We could try to work it all out
Charts and graphs and 1 to 10
Or we could send it to the ether
Nothing

Or maybe we should

Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Fall in


You and me we are the same though
You know we both been hurt before
But the more I try to hold on to
Something the more I’m letting go

Thinking thoughts just for the sake of
But they all come back to you
And I can’t tell if I’m missing
Something

Or if I should just

Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Fall in

Spent so many lonely nights
Learning how to hold on tight
Didn’t think I’d ever let go
And what you don’t know never hurts
But when you’re around I learn
Didn’t think I’d ever let go

And just
Fall in
Caution to the wind and
Fall in
Caution to the wind
Track Name: Making Mistakes & Wasting Time
Seeing rivers flowing seeing sun rise
Colours shifting at the speed of light
I can see you through it all

And even though this isn’t all that there is
I got you and all of our beginnings
And right there my fear is upped and gone

I said that we’re forever
Forever’s what I mean
Cause there ain’t nowhere else that I’d rather be
As long as we keep making mistakes and wasting time

I think you might be my crystal ball cause
Whenever you’re around I can see it all
Laying out there clear as day

And when the summers over
You know where I will be
Cause no matter where I go my heart is here
Just tell me we’ll keep making mistakes and wasting time

And I hope
Hope we don’t ever learn
And I hope
We’ll go where the wind blows

I said that we’re forever
Forever’s what I mean
Cause there ain’t nowhere else that rather be
As long as we keep making mistakes and wasting time
As long as we keep making mistakes and wasting time
Track Name: Flickers In The Flames
Breathing in
And I swear I have seen your face before

Just beginning
Only place that we have ever gone
Can’t know the unknown

Name these places
Tell your tales
But you know
We’re only flickers in the
Moments gone
Moments pale
Cause you know
We’re only flickers in the flames
We’re flickers in the flames

Drop a stone
Throw it in the well and wait for its return

All the cars drive themselves now
So we don’t need to pay attention
Anywhere we go

Name these places
Tell your tails
But you know
We’re only filckers in the
Moments gone
Moments pale
Cause you know
We’re only flickers in the flames
We’re flickers in the flames
Track Name: Talk To Me
Take my truth
And tell me yours
Like a wave out from the shoreline
Like the rain caught in the headlights

Picking up the pace
I won’t hold your mistakes against you

You can talk to me if you want to
You can let me in if you want to
You can talk to me if you want to
Talk to me

So I been thinking a lot
Bout everything we got
It’s so easy to not
Give it a so much as a second thought

Ripples out on the surface
Dots that can’t be connected
Like the day that we met
And the day that I give in

Oh my love
But the world keeps turning
Oh my love
The seasons change
Oh my love
The tide is rising
Oh my love
Let's just run away

You can talk to me if you want to
You can let me in if you want to
You can talk to me if you want to
Talk to me
Track Name: Now What
Gotta keep that fire burning night and day
Tell me how else are we ever gonna get rescued?

And the fire’s gonna burn out someday
Better sit down honey have you heard the news?

We’re circling
An average star
Out on the edge
Of nowhere special

So now what?

We don’t have to make it mean anything
We can do whatever makes us feel alright

And it’s really low probability
But the consequence is definitely high
But would it hurt us even a little less
If we ever manage to work out why?

We’re floating round
In the deep feeze
Out on a limb
Of one of a hundred billion galaxies

We’re circling
An average star
Out on the edge
Of nowhere special

So now what?
Track Name: Home
Looking up what do you see
Tracing around eternity
No place too far for you and me
No place so far that I can’t see
Back home

And there we were just holding on
Repeating it, hope is never gone
No matter how far you ever rome
Wherever you are, your heart belongs
Back home

Spinning in anonymity
You came and gave a name to me
Orbiting in your gravity
Something unknown that carries me
back home

Looking up what do you see
No place too far for you and me
Track Name: Little Piece Of Nothing
The sun is fading
A little more every turn
But if we make it
I’ll be here for you for sure

Oh
Release a little piece of my hoping
Away into the wild and free
Sometimes I wish that we hadn’t gotten
So deep

Adding transgressions
Is it wrong to love so much
Out of perception
Can’t think of you enough

I know I know that I should be grateful
A love lost or one never seen
But sometimes I wish that we hadn’t gotten
So deep

Oh
Sometimes I’m right back at the beginning
Sometimes you’re right there with me
Sometimes I wish that we hadn’t gotten
So deep
