Track Name: Nothing Safe Out Here
There's nothing safe out here
But I'm not ready to go in yet
In the dark we watch our shadows disappear
You'll find my bones beneath my frozen breath

I've walked alone so long
I forgot to leave room on the path
My shoes are worn they hold loose stones against my toes
But there's enough within their soles to get me back

What would you say
If I didn't come around again
The silence won't break
We know the tide is rolling in
I have no intention of leaving you alone
But there's nothing safe

Two paths through the same lens
My answers would be your regrets
I need freedom with no walls but you need yours
Presented as you stand atop your fence
Oh, I know that I'm not right
But I'm sure I can't be wrong
There's room if you step aboard this flight
I wouldn't mind it if you came along

What would you say
If I didn't come around again
The silence won't break
We know the tide is rolling in
I have no intention of leaving you alone
But there's nothing safe

There's nothing safe out here
but I'm not ready to go in yet
Take my hand we'll hit the road
At the first light
You'll be by my side from the very first step
Track Name: Miss Me
Haven't seen the floor in a week
Its' covered with bits of newspaper strewn about my feet
And I've been searching for a sign that I dare not speak
I have seen your face as my own
The one I have known as I have grown
And it hurts cause you could be so much more I believe
But you don't want to go ahead with me

I haven't seen your face in awhile
The memory won't fade, no it just grows so loud
If you don't see my face in awhile
Will you learn to miss, to miss me

Done being a slave to what you say
You hold me close, you keep me low
And now you're pushing me away
You want to keep me, keep me
But keep me safe
Don't keep me guessing when you'll be going away

I haven't seen your face in awhile
The memory won't fade, no it just grows so loud
If you don't see my face in awhile
Will you learn to miss, to miss me
Oh, will you learn to miss me

I don't want to let you go
Been filling my mind for far too long
I'm just waiting 'til you go, until you go
Oh, there you go, you've gone and let me go again

I haven't seen your face in awhile
The memory won't fade, no it just grows so loud
If you don't see my face in awhile
Will you learn to miss, to miss me
Oh, will you learn to miss, to miss me
Oh, will you learn to miss me

Haven't seen your face in a week
Track Name: Good Intentions
I've been hitting dead ends
I've been losing my friends 'cause I won't answer their call
Every conversation filled with the same heavy words
I just can't hear anymore
No, anymore

You've been filling my head
Taking up all the space better thoughts could go
Now it all depends
No, it's fine you don't want to leave you just
Don't want to hold me anymore
No, don't want to hold me anymore

My head was full of good intentions
My heart, heavy as it got
I swear I only had good intentions
At the start

You've been picking me up
Push me down but yours is the only hand I want
Keep me in debt
Pay you back all I have but we will never be even
No, we'll never be even

My head was full of good intentions
My heart, heavy as it got
I swear I only had good intentions
At the start
At the start
At the start

My head was full of good intentions
My heart, heavy as it got
I swear I only had good intentions

My head was full of good intentions
My heart, heavy as it got
I swear I only had good intentions
But that was at the start
That was at the start
Track Name: Can't See Stars
Oh, I remember
Clear nights in Arizona
Looking up with your telescope
Before the winds came
Took me out to California
And to the grey skies up the West Coast

Now I've seen so many faces come and go
Loved so many homes that I couldn't call my own
Still sometimes my problems feel so damn large
Without you, when I can't see the stars

You promised me through your eyes
That we would stay by each other's side
But you were just a setting sun, another satellite
Burning up, falling quickly out of sight

As the time goes
I forget we've passed the end
And my thoughts begin to fill the empty space
Oh, I am drifting
Steady hand and steady hope
The abyss is feeling better everyday

Now I've seen so many faces come and go
Loved so many homes that I couldn't call my own
Still sometimes my problems feel so damn large
Without you, when I can't see the stars

Promise me that you'll wait
If not at our corner, then at the final gate
If now we are walking parallel lines
Consider this the sincerest of goodbyes

'Cause I'm just another face to come and go
Just another home that you couldn't call your own
Wonder if you miss me and where you are
On these nights when I can't see the stars
Track Name: Let Me
You say you need a good reason
To figure this out
Oh, if nothing is changing then why should I have to change now?

Sometimes the words aren't so easily said
But if no one is listening, what power do they have?

Oh, I have heard your voice
The most the beautiful sound against the noise
You say you're not sleeping you start to fade
Oh, let me be your reason
Let me ask you to stay

Oh let me be your reason
To sleep through the night
Count down on your fingers
And I'll just hold on more tightly
You ask when will the storm pass
I don't know
Just let me be your reason
Let me take you home

I need a distraction, I need some relief
Oh, cause smoking and aspirin and whiskey won't cure this disease
I just need a sign to vanquish my doubt
Oh, cause hoping and praying ain't working
What can I do now

Oh, I have heard your voice
The most the beautiful sound against the noise
You say you're not sleeping you start to fade
Oh, let me be your reason
Let me ask you to stay

Oh let me be your reason
To sleep through the night
Count down on your fingers
And I'll just hold on more tightly
You ask when will the storm pass
I don't know
Just let me be your reason
Let me take you home

You say you're not sleeping
Well I'm not leaving x3
I'm not sleeping if you're not sleeping tonight

So let me be your reason
To sleep through the night
Count down on your fingers
And I'll just hold on more tightly
You ask when will the storm pass
I don't know
Just let me be your reason
Let me take you home
Track Name: Go to Sleep (Acoustic)
I can't sleep, I wonder if I'll make it
Through the night with all the pills I've taken
Just to make this headache go away
I know what you're trying to do
You're trying to forget, forget you ever knew
This nuisance that's been hanging on your mind

It's getting too late
To fix what we've broke
If it's unfixable, I just tell myself to
Go to sleep

All these pages I thought I'd fill by now
Clutter up my mind with all the stories how
I wish I could forget what I've begun
Always doing right, right by someone else
Doesn't help at night when I find I'm by myself
And my worst enemy is the sun

It's getting too late
To fix what we've broke
If it's unfixable
I just tell myself to go

And nothing will go as perfectly
As these wishes unfold in my dreams
But I'll learn to take it as it is
And as you are

I can't sleep and morning's coming fast
Again I've been too hung up on the past
I need to learn to let these things go
These scars I know they'll heal
But it's hard to believe when they're all you feel
And you've not one dream to keep them off your mind

If it's getting too late
To fix what we've broke
Nothing's unfixable
If only I could go to sleep
