Track Name: Rhythmic Misstep
He wanders the streets taking all rhythmic missteps
The one he competes with is the one that he shares breath
The sun's at its peak and his shadow is crooked

He hopes that there's meaning behind every regret
The ex is a bee sting you know we have all met
He's broken and all in the same places mended

The tattered sole of a boot gives way
He hasn't a soul of his own to replace
and despite where his heart is, his mind's in the wrong place

He wanders the highway with all rhythmic missteps
The sun's in his eyes and his eyes never see rest
Forgetting is all that he knows of forgiveness
Track Name: Satisfy Your Heart
Who ever would be able to?
Satisfy your heart
Not like you'd expect them to?
Satisfy your heart
Who's ever gonna be with you?
Satisfy your heart
Nobody would be able to,
Satisfy your heart
Track Name: Pine
I'd pine for you, Sweetheart
Desire you, Sweetheart
You're perfect, my Sweetheart, so please come home.

And I'd die for you, Sweetheart
Devour you, Sweetheart
You're mine aren't you, Sweetheart? So please don't go.

I played this game long enough by now.
Played it 'til my fingertips wore out.

The distance between us, it's getting old
Not like you planned it I supposed
The distance between us, it never ends
I pine to hold you once again.

I'd pine for you, Sweetheart
Desire you, Sweetheart
You're perfect, my Sweetheart, so please come home.
Track Name: Return To Me
Leave me with the secrets that you can't erase
All night, they've been keeping me awake
Lead in with a kiss because it makes you feel safe
Just admit that you've got something to explain

I said don't back out
And don't you roll your eyes at me
I won't back down
And now I've suspended belief.

Won't you care about resentment tomorrow?
Forgotten that there's something that you borrowed?
Return to me.

Even if the favor should swing my way
It's the fever of my anger you recall
Not like saying sorry has ever hemmed the fray
I've tried it once or twice against the wall

I said don't back out
And don't you roll your eyes at me
I won't back down
Now I've suspended belief.

Won't you care about resentment tomorrow?
Forgotten that there's something that you borrowed?
Return it to me.
Return to me.
Track Name: Out In The Cold
Clean sheets for my sweet she sleeps with three soft down pillows and a mouth piece, you know I'm right, I'm right by her side.
Just trying to be still, just trying to be quiet.
Is this an investment or is it something less defined?
I sunk nine hundred hours of a thousand hour life,
I lost count, I lost track of time.

You can stay out in the cold
Not gonna change what's happened
No the blame is not by your hand, alone.
Go on keep all that I own,
Nothing will make this okay,
I'm ashamed it's taken so long to say.

So leave me with the sense that the restlessness I've been feeling is alright, tearing my insides, and breaking me down.
It's pulling at my heart, pulling at my eyes
When you shoot straight from your hipbone, I trip on two words and your lips gonna hypnotize me, crossing my eyes.
You can't call it a lie, but you know I've tried.

You can stay out in the cold
Not gonna change what's happened
No the blame is not by your hand, alone.
Go on keep all that I own,
Nothing will make this okay,
I'm ashamed it's taken so long to say.
Track Name: Determined To Keep You
Determined to keep you
Determined to try
Well don't be in such a hurry, you don't have to go for a while.

Determined to please you
And sleep by your side
Well don't be in such a hurry, you don't have to wake for a while.

I'd never deceive you
Perpetual lie
I couldn't live with the guilt of it, I'd never try.

Determined to see you
In every light
You shouldn't turn from the camera, you've got nothing to hide

Can't you tell, that all the letters of my name
They hold you oh so tightly, hold you tight in place
No one else, is ever gonna be that way
So hold me oh so tightly, I'll hold you tight in place.

Determined to keep you
Determined to try
Well don't be in such a hurry, you don't have to go for a while.

Determined to feed you
And live by your side
Well don't be in such a hurry, you don't have to wake for a while.

Can't you tell, that all the letters of my name
They hold you oh so tightly, hold you tight in place
No one else, is ever gonna be that way
So hold me oh so tightly, I'll hold you tight in place.
Track Name: Thicker Skin
Your hold gets loose this season
If only you'd admit, that my only hope is fleeting
Time grows thicker skin

Be open to believing
But careful what gets in
You can't trust what you're seeing
Time grows thicker skin

And I'll hold you like gold holds diamonds in an antique ring
Like mines hold coal where canaries sing
Just to show you I'm capable of some refrain
How you call me crazy when my stupid heart is to blame, it's to blame
How you call me crazy when my over analytical brain is in the way
But I have changed, I have changed, I have changed

And I'll hold you like gold holds diamonds in an antique ring,
Like mines hold coal where canaries sing
Just to show you

I could hold you like gold holds diamonds in an antique ring,
Like mines hold coal, I could show you.

I can't be expected to walk away and forgive.
I can't be expected to shoulder all this weight.
Who are you to say what's healthy and what isn't?
Who are you to assign every ounce of blame?
Track Name: Can, Have, Will
Trust in me I'll be your first
Drop the reigns, girl I can take your worst
I can take your worst

Speak to me, I'll lend an ear
Tell me things like no one else should hear
You know it's crystal clear

I owe your body and your soul for being so cold
I mistreated you, but I can make it right again
I can, I have, and I will

Seagull bones and stones you keep
Take them home, reminds you of the beach
When you went with me

Make it known our souls will keep
Spoken code scripted underneath
Scripted underneath

I owe your body and your soul for being so cold
I mistreated you, but I can make it right again
I can, I have, and I will
