Track Name: We Play for Keeps
Strong and wrong, or so you thought until you had began to run. You run and run you do so well. By the way, I'm fond of your tortured charm, it's gotten you this far. Alarmed, and like so many others I am gone, far gone, into the depths, a lonely death, and a way to go down that bridge paved gold, my malleable soul.
It's better than before you've made it so.
I know that you've got a lot to give, give us some more hope.
i know that you've got a life to live, live up to your word.
Strung along, to you i truly feel that i now do belong. Torrid affair with such despair. It's a classic love you churned in your tub with your plastic doves. Above as so below, six feet for everyone you know. The words melt you like sun melts snow, she's a twisted girl, watch your back mid-twirl, watch the steps unfurl.
The dance you knew before, now goes like so.
I know that you've got a lot to give, give us some more hope.
I know that you've got a life, live up to your word.
Walking forward feels like sinking, wading for that awful feeling.
Track Name: Feet Here
Speak, the way you talk is so amazing
Caught me gazing at the paint than
out of nowhere, chilled by a cold stare
saw you weeping in the stairwell

is it wrong or is it worth it
If it scars can i reverse it
I don't need this, kind of treatment
I believe in, sharing secrets

Better Run, Better Run if you mean it
Better Call, Better Call if you mean it (x2)

Love, the way you hate is so amazing
Got me chasing tail and hating all your new means
of seeing through me, like a window
like a soft breeze

Be my sun, be my shelter
Be my brain helter skelter on the
pavement, you're the greatest, and I
hate it, let me try this

This is the shit and its amazing
Shirtless nights outside and blazing
I'm an old man, in a childs mind, call me crazy
on your own time

Better Run, Better Run if you mean it
Better Call, Better Call if you mean it (x2)
Track Name: San Diego
Im clinging to the sunrise, leaking on the shore
When everythings less beautiful than it was before
And i don't think i'll hold out
I don't think i can hold out

Im hoping for the rain when you're hoping it would snow
When everything's less colouful and duller than before
I don't think I'll hold out
I don't think I can hold out, can you hold out for me

Get it all (Get it all)

Sat beside me in the stairwell to share you favourite band
Relying on your mind games and subtle slight of hand
I dont think I'll come down
I don't I can come down

Your quiet on the beach when your buried in the sand
Pretty big actions for an even bigger man
I figured you could calm down
I dont think you can calm down, can you calm down for me

Now im off to San Diego
Now im off to forget it all, get it all
Track Name: TrueLoveAbove
It's so hard to care for broken things
through no amount of stolen sleep
your voice is ringing through my dreams
your hate still sweeps me off my feet

if it weren't for me, where would we be?
life has no guarantees, no guts, no glory

in your heart, i am the reason
mind is broken, body's beaten.
you won't get the many things you want to
i won't do the little things i ought to
if this grudge holds up, to the ceiling
true love above all of your feelings
you won't get the many things you want to
you won't

if it weren't for me, where would we be?
life has no guarantees, no guts, no glory.

the worst things you're thinking, they're all in your head.
that best bet you're feeling is already dead

you won't get the many things you want to
i won't do the little things i ought to
fuck
Track Name: Graced Away
Can you believe, the path they have laid out for me
Can you exceed, the limits laid out only in dreams

I hate to make it personal
This is the kind of friendship where
I walk away you hold the light
Stand and whisper oh my god
I walk away you hold the light
Stand and whisper oh my god

You're always
Catching up, catching up (x2)

Too many years, too love and not enough to hate
Its the little milestones, that make life worth the wait

If i could make it personal
I'd call you 1 2 3 4 5 6
More times you hold the light
Stand and whisper oh my god
I walk away you hold the light
Stand and whisper oh my god

You're always
Catching up, catching up (x6)

Can you believe
Can you exceed
Track Name: Hands Here
I dont' want to be your coffee stain
I don't want to be your sorry excuse when you got nothing else to say
I don't want to be your tangled string and
I don't want to pull your knots out

I've been sitting on the sidewalk waiting for life to begin
Pull the pipes out. Knock your lights out
We think with such clockwork regularity
And i've been waiting for this day so you could spend some time with me

I don't want to be your acid rain
I don't want to be your failsafe backup plan when you've got nothing else to say
Gods pulling my flaws out despite the fact im callin the shots out

Chorus

We Find ourselves in the most comfortable places that we know
