Track Name: Alice
Her skin it sits upon her bone.
Her lips they whisper things unknown.
Her words like paintings that she drew.
Her eyes unseen to all she knew.

His hopes they sit upon the ground.
His strings they fall; don’t make a sound.
His heart it beats like a thousand roars,
As hers sits still like never before.

Her silence reaches to the woods.
Her hands they grasped but never took.
Her breath it comes down to a chill.
Her heart it yearns to be still.

His faith it shelters her every move.
His voice it leads her to his room.
His heart it beats like a thousand roars
As hers sits still like never before.
Track Name: Home
She won’t come home
Her bird has flown
Fast cars and cigarettes
And she sings

He sits alone
Each day it grows
Quite sits inside and the letters he promised to write
And he sings

She won’t come home
He still waits for her
That bird has flown
He still waits for her
Fast cars and cigarettes
He’ll leave his door open
Just incase she needs a bed
And they sing
Track Name: Winter
The seasons come around and bring the change
The seasons go and take you as you came
But heaven knows she’s not in this for the pain,
She’s in this for the love she never gained.

Her body twists and turns alone in bed
These sleepless nights have left her good for dead
But winter’s come, she needs a hand to hold.
She needs a hand to hold when he’s away.

His letters read of worlds she’d never know
And end with tears of hers upon the floor
For every time she feels his heart amiss
She leaves herself a scar upon her wrist.

His silence speaks so loud.
They’ll be safe and sound.
Her mind it lingers on, 
She’s hoping for the best when she’s alone
Track Name: Lighthouse
A wave upon the sand brings him home, oh home
Sanity, oh sanity has left him alone

He glances to the shore with his hopes held low
Sanity, oh sanity has left him alone

In his darkest hour he laughs,
He laughs and cries “no more”
In his darkest hour he laughs,
He laughs and cries “no more”

Once shining eyes they’ve turned to grey,
They’ve turned to stone.
He’s a fickle thing with broken wings,
Allow his soul to roam.

Once shining eyes they’ve turned to grey,
They’ve turned to stone.
He’s a fickle thing with broken wings,
Allow his soul to roam.

In his darkest hour he laughs,
He laughs and cries “no more”
In his darkest hour he laughs,
He laughs and cries “no more”
Track Name: The Woods
It’s the silence that holds her back
He gave her nothing, no way of knowing what she had
Over streams and mountains her mind flew
She went crazy for him and everything that he’d do

Take her away from where the lions roar
Out of the woods and in from the cold
Take her away, shelter her from the storm
To a house led by a creek, where the winds won’t blow

Way out west he lies, too many miles apart
He won’t come, no now he’s gone
And he’s left her for the dawn
Caves and willows won’t suffice
Boys and bears begin to fight
Yearning for his ripped out heart

Take her away from where the lions roar
Out of the woods and in from the cold
Take her away, shelter her from the storm
To a house led by a creek, where the winds won’t blow
