Track Name: Florida
he wrote notes to catherine
as they wait for school to begin
her lips pursed as she read in her bed and it said
“won’t you meet me here again?”

catherine spent all her time
picking oranges and limes
waiting for him to walk through the door
sick and sore
confessing all of his crimes

oh, florida
I can’t take it anymore
the waves they break before they hit the shore
and every piece of fruit that hangs
will soon fall to the floor
oh, florida
I can’t take it anymore

he spoke lies soft and sweet
and he hoped one day he’d believe
that underneath florida trees
tall and green
she’d be seen
as someone not to leave

catherine waits by the door
as he drives east towards the shore
the exits pass
he could not make it last
turing fast
for the truth he can’t ignore

oh, florida
I can’t take it anymore
the waves they break before they hit the shore
and every piece of fruit that hangs
will soon fall to the floor
oh, florida
I can’t take it anymore
Track Name: Dirty Words
take back those dirty words
I don’t need what I’ve already heard
take back those dirty words again

broke my back
in the heat of the sun
and I called your name until I came undone
and now I take back those dirty words that I said

picking pennies
off the concrete stairs
I caught your fragile gaze
and your sun soaked hair
and I couldn’t grasp those dirty words
that you said

wide awake
with the blood red moon
you’re singing sly little songs
to a capturing tune
and I drank in those dirty words that you sang

take back those dirty words
I can’t forget what I’ve already heard
take back those dirty words again
Track Name: Come Around
oh how I wish that you would come around
you clear my head and then you take a bow
the wind is whipping all the leaves to the ground
oh how I wish that you would come around

the glassy morning takes its toll on me
move like a child to the ceaseless beat
of drumming water on the empty street
the glassy morning takes its toll on me

in spite of everything I used to say
I really think this might work out someday
I need the evenings you had thrown away
in spite of everything I used to say

the careful corners of your cautious smile
continue creeping in my head for a while
the way you move still seems to drive me wild
the careful corners of your cautious smile
Track Name: Good Graces
keep me in good graces
lead me from your fault line
caution kept me cold
and winter made me old
and I can’t escape the world this time

if you’re gonna come back
and if you’re gonna let go

keep me unaware in the confines of your stare
because I can’t escape the world this time

keep me in your gold gaze
walk me to my front door
with windows open wide
the lies you kept inside
are flying out and dropping to the floor

you’re not gonna come back
and I’m not gonna let go

good graces aren’t enough
I called your name
and called your bluff
and I can’t keep to myself this time

I can’t keep to myself
this time...
Track Name: Walk Alone
I don't want god to see this written on my arms
how beautiful it was to dance alone
I woke up to see your message on my telephone
how wonderful you slept all on your own

I can't stand to watch you walk alone

I dont want the world to see this tattooed on my palms
cursive like the veins that run beneath
I cut through the days with your name caught beneath my teeth
your lavender soap songs still on repeat

I can't stand to watch you walk alone

I’m far from home

I dont want you to see this scratched into my chest
how I poured half down the sink
and drank the rest

I can't stand to watch you walk alone
Track Name: She Said
I've been waiting
I've been hoping
for my girl
just to come back home
she's been running
running faster
much too fast
for my feet to go

she said
"I don't want to let you go"
she said
"but I can't come home"

I've been hoping
I've been praying
the sun is not enough
to keep me warm
my heart has grown colder
than the north

she said
"I don't want to let you go"
she said
"but I can't come home"

on and on and on
Track Name: Eleven
lace and love
get lost above
my hollow head
lay me down
so I can finally
sleep again

I was spitting venom
with my fingers tied
you drifted through the landscape
of my anxious mind

standing in
a perfect box
of painted lines
you said
“I only want to feel
your beating chest
sometimes”

reaching out can be
so god damn hard to do
sometimes I only feel alone
when I’m with you

wishes feel
like lies
when waiting
takes too long
I can only wish
to feel it
when you sing
your songs

copper dreams and old machines
replace my bones
sometimes I only feel with you
when I’m alone
