Track Name: Not the Time
and this is not the time for us
no this is not the time

hold on darling
don't you cry
a liquored up sunset
spills across our night sky

for you are a ghost
and i'm just a little bit broke
and you've got a curfew to keep tonight

and this is not the time for us
no this is not the time

my tissue paper heart
stains your hands
here's looking at you
and hoping you glance back

'cuz if you were with me darling
i'd write you a song
already this night is growing too long

and this is not the time for us
no this is not the time
though you and i
could be so right
oh this is not the time
no this is not the time
Track Name: Sing Me Your Song
sing me your song
and call it home
sing me your song
if that's all you know

if i were the sea
and you were above me on the wire
i'd say darling i'm next
but i'm not taking bets
i've been shipwrecked for some time

i've been catching honeybees
in a tunnel of trees
while you soak your body in wine
you delight in misery
but i take no joy
in watching it eat you alive

so sing me your song
and call it home
sing me your pain
and watch it grow
sing me your fear
and let it show
sing me your song
if that's all you know
'cuz that's all you know

if i were the water
i'd pool your reflection in my eye
i would take all your sorrow
and sink it to the bottom of the ocean
so deep and wide
it's been three long years since we last spoke
and i cast the first stone
didn't lose no sleep tonight

so sing me your song
and call it home
sing me your pain
and watch it grow
sing me your fear
and let it show
sing me your song
if that's all you know
'cuz that's all you know
'cuz that's all you know
'cuz that's all you know
'cuz that's all you know
Track Name: I Found A Home
it was your smile
and your eyes all aglow
that first caught my eye
a long long time ago

if i found you in another life
i'd ask you again and again
to be my wife

'cuz i found a home
with you
i found a home
with you
and i will grow old
with you
i found a home

hop in the dodge
with the eight track tape deck
playing our favourite song
gather our children
blessed are we
and we will drive
for summers at a time
winter's breath at our neck
we are free

i found a home
with you
i found a home
with you
and i will grow old
with you
i found a home

i found a home, a home, a home
i found a home with you
and i will grow old
with you
i found a home, a home, a home

i found a home
with you
i found a home
with you
and i will grow old
with you
i found a home
Track Name: Paper Wings
oh my broken bird
mend your wings
fly back home up north
and call out to spring
oh my broken song
is singing
from my stubborn lungs

are these paper wings
or are they painted gold
i will burn you up dear
if you fly too close
are these paper wings
or are they painted gold
i will burn you up dear
if you fly too close to me

oh my wretched night
your shadow grows thin
let your stars take flight
and carve away your sins
oh my angry mouth
spits truth upon the ground
let your sun rise now

are these paper wings
or are they painted gold
i will burn you up dear
if you fly too closeare these paper wings
or are they painted gold
i will burn you up dear
if you fly too close to me
Track Name: Haunt Me
the best love you ever had
was a love you never had at all
the worst part is looking back
leave well enough alone

i'm fine i swear to god that i don't need you
but my heart it keeps on sinking like a stone
you're acting like a stranger when i see you
and you haunt me, haunt me, haunt me,
when you're gone
when you're gone

i'm sober, but not enough
drew a map to lead you home
call you but never talk
leave well enough alone

i'm fine i swear to god that i don't need you
but my heart it keeps on sinking like a stone
you're acting like a stranger when i see you
and you haunt me, haunt me, haunt me,
haunt me, haunt me, haunt me,
and you haunt me, haunt me, haunt me,
when you're gone
when you're gone
when you're gone
when you're gone

i'm fine i swear to god that i don't need you
but my heart it keeps on sinking like a stone
you're acting like a stranger when i see you
and you haunt me, haunt me, haunt me,
and you haunt me, haunt me, haunt me,
and you haunt me, haunt me, haunt me.
Track Name: The Villain
i am shipwrecked
though i lit a match
in the middle of the storm last night
i thought i could keep us both warm
but i had been warned

in isolation it felt nice
but we were
two cold bodies passing in the night
and i would call your name a thousand times
just to have your eyes on me

and we are divided
and i'll conquer you all
i have decided
that you were the villain afterall
the villain afterall

i don't want to
but i do
i'm outside myself
staring down at you
i am scared but i am trying
darling i am lying
i am lying next to you
when your power goes out
when your power goes out

and we are divided
and i'll conquer you all
i have decided
that you were the villain afterall

and we are divided
and i'll conquer you all
i have decided
that you were the villain afterall
the villain afterall
Track Name: Say The Words
my hands are filled with subway transfers
they lead me backwards
to your arms
and my head is filled with paper dolls
but i'd crush them all
to be your only words

so just
say the words, say the words
i'm getting older and i know it hurts
so just
say the words, say the words
i'm insecure so just say it first

the crowd is filled with awkward glances
and second chances we'll never have
the record is playing the creaking floor
we dance to songs we never heard before

so just
say the words, say the words
i'm getting older and i know it hurts
so just
say the words, say the words
i'm insecure so just say it first

say the words, say the words
say the words, say the words

so just
say the words, say the words
i'm getting older and i know it hurts
so just
say the words, say the words
i'm insecure so just say it first
