Track Name: As We Go
I try to understand
what everyone is telling me
I hold it in my hand
'cause it could end so easily
I've got this silly fear
that everything is leaving me
I want to stay right here
and look out over eveything

Even though
I lack control
I grab on to you
you make me whole

So unclear it's hard to tell
what's ahead and what works well
Just forget what you know
we'll make it up as we go

I try to open up
so you can see what's going on
I haven't had enough
I know that it's just begun
I try to keep it there
too soon I know it will be gone

So unclear it's hard to tell
what's ahead and what works well
Just forget what you know
we'll make it up as we go
Track Name: Learn
I buried my trust in my backyard
it's under the "x," that isn't so hard
I have enough to keep you warm
I don't think I'm ever gonna learn

I want to call you baby
I know
you must think I'm crazy
I know

Please, please don't run away
I got a place where you can stay
I promise that I'll keep you warm
I don't think I'm ever gonna learn
Track Name: If
If I could clean the mess I made
If I could make it go away
If I could tell you what you are
If I could

If I could scream out how I feel
If I could keep everything that's real
If I could make you laugh again
then I would

I lack an ambitious state of mind
I just want everything to be fine
I want to hear you say "ok"
I want to see you again some day

If I could make sense of it all
If I could learn to stand real tall
If I could make you feel alright
then I would
Track Name: Guide
Show me where you have been hiding
I want to go there I've been trying
Please go ahead and guide me
Track Name: Breathe
You held it too close
it needs space to breathe
That's what it needs most
go let it be free

You thought something else
I began to cry
You held me too close
I didn't know why
Track Name: Far Away
I don't really know how it all works
I've been standing still so I won't get hurt
and everywhere I look I see you from far away

I wish I had a word that said it all
I don't wanna talk yeah I'd rather just fall
I can close my eyes but I can't forget it all

I don't really know how this will end
but can we be ok yeah can we just pretend
It's getting darker and darker inside my head

I wish I had a way back into your mind
a place where I could stay yeah a place where I could hide
now I'm turned away and I'm hoping it'll take some time

I'm hoping it'll take some time
Track Name: Stomp Stomp
Clumsy giant walks around
stomping on the hearts he's found
although he's big, he don't make sound
leaving footprints all around

Stupid giant turn around
look at those hearts on the ground
Track Name: Fortune Cookie
I can't help feeling there could have been more
but I watched it all sink to the floor
You don't care just what you say as long as you're saying it

I cannot try to be any more patient
my heart is sore from doing all this waiting
Not even this fortune cookie can tell me how to change it

I know that you are supposed to nod
but I can tell that just means you're gone
You don't care just where you are as long as you're away
Track Name: Forget
Talk to me
splash words on my face
to keep me awake

It's easy
to forget what to say

Call to me
surround me with echoes
that lead me back home

Take it back
the things that you gave me
intended to save me

It's so hard
to forget why I'm here

Just relax
start feeling better
you gotta feel better

Is there a way to feel brand new?
Track Name: For Now
Make it back home when you're worn out
I can help you figure things out
There's not a thing you want to say
I could help you throw it away

I don't know how to play this game
You look around, you've lost your way
You can't avoid all the goddamn change
Everyone leaves so I'll stay the same

For now
just now
Figure it out
some how

I couldn't stand to sit and stare
I do what I can what I can bare
It's too hard to just not care
and I don't know why

I forgot how to play your game
You look around, you've lost your way
You can't avoid all the goddamn change
Everyone leaves so I stay the same
For Now
