Track Name: Come Sail Away
We’re calling it a night
But something just ain’t right
Like something we forgot to do
And I just can’t quite place it
Caught up in the moment
And never really noticed
Overwhelmed, manipulated we’ve been all along
(Safe to say its all our faults
Point to the way out its simple enough)
I’ll just hit the lights and go dream out the night
Thinning out the line between reality and fiction
We’re feeling like the weather
Cold rain in late November
The coldest chill but even still, a spark could keep us burning

Come sail away with me across the Mediterranean
The water’s warm and it feels just right
Crystal clear just like your smile
I don’t care if we sound immature
I know our hearts are gold and pure
We should rest our minds
We could use a little sun to lay in

It doesn’t matter where we go
Just as long as we get there and safely make it home
The only compass by my side is your hand in mine
Come sail away with me across the Mediterranean
The purpose why? It’s undefined
Well I don’t know it’s just so fucking awesome

Come sail away with me across the Mediterranean
The water’s warm and it feels just right
Crystal clear just like your smile
I don’t care if we sound immature
I know our hearts are gold and pure
We should rest our minds
We could use a little sun to lay in
Track Name: Birthday Song
Awoken by a morning light
Shining through my headache into these blood-shot eyes
I spent the whole night with my face in the bottle
The clock on the wall says I layed here a while
Regret starts to kill and my head starts to pound
I reach for the Advil but there’s none around
I glance to the calendar dreading to see just what day it was
And then there she was
This time I can’t blame bad luck
It’s obvious that I fucked up

I retraced my steps and I stumbled and fell
Her birthday’s today and I’m broke as hell
I spent all my money on Blue Moon
So I’ll strum a chord with some words over top
I know it ain’t much but that’s al that I got
Just know in your heart that it’s for you

As I glanced at the calendar dreading to see just what day it was
And there she was
I circled the day but I drank it away
And it’s all my fault
Blame the alcohol
When all my excuses have left me with bruises
And I can’t blame it on bad luck
Cause I fucked up

I retraced my steps and I stumbled and fell
Her birthday’s today and I’m broke as hell
I spent all my money on Blue Moon
So I’ll strum a chord with some words over top
I know it ain’t much but that’s al that I got
Just know in your heart that it’s for you
Track Name: Follow The Line
I’ve given everything I’ve had for what it’s worth
Anything to rid me of this awful curse
It’s better to have loved than lost, then never loved at all
But every time I reach for it I fall
I wear a better face and you’re the reason why
Fixed these broken wings and showed me how to fly
Home is where the heart is gold and mine is yours to keep
Hold it closely by your side and safely fall asleep
All you are is oh so perfect
Thought that you should know

Follow the line, trace back to where it started
I wasted time
Tales of the broken hearted
All my life I’ve tried to find
Now she’s laying by my side

You should know you got me hypnotized
I blame it on that tiny freckle in your eye
I could stare at all night long as I lay close to you
Until your body tells me when its right to make a move
And I say all you are is oh so perfect
And I think you should know

Follow the line, trace back to where it started
I wasted time
Tales of the broken hearted
All my life I’ve tried to find
Now she’s laying by my side

Pleasure sweats from her skin
Take a breath slow it down
Brush the dirt off my chin when my jaw hits the ground
Close the window November is so cold
Know that I’m coming home
And I’ll warm you up when we’re alone

Follow the line, trace back to where it started
I wasted time
Tales of the broken hearted
All my life I’ve tried to find
Now she’s laying by my side

I’ll let it burn when she ignites a fire
I’ll wait my turn
I’ll prove what I desire
Don’t you worry love of mine
I will hold you safe in my arms
A lullaby to help those eyes close
Don’t you worry love of mine
I will old you safe in my arms
Track Name: As Days Go By
Dark road bright lights
While my backs been facing home
You’ve been running through my mind
I can feel you in my bones
When your miles from my heart
If you could just pick up the phone
With a voice so familiar
I can almost feel at home
Maybe if you were here right now
The sky we’ll paint it bright blue
I wouldn’t dare be there without you by my side
With hungry eyes
Keep ‘em closed

Bare the hear of the summer
When it leaves us short of breath
We should savor the sunshine ‘cause there may not be much left
Just a thought to remember
When the moonlight leaves us cold
Takes the breath out of my lungs
But you would never hurt a soul
Maybe if you were here right now
The sky we’ll paint it bright blue
I wouldn’t dare be there without you by my side
And when your sitting at home alone in your bed
With a troubled head
I’ll be thinking aloud with the notes ringing out
I keep picking you up ‘cause I hate to see you down
When your down, here it goes

If only I could see you now
But as days go by
I’m exactly in the same spot as before
A million miles away you know I’ll write
So cross those t’s and dry your eyes
Until the day you’re by my side
Just know my thoughts on you
Track Name: Ghost In The Room
When we were together
For as long as I remember
I melt when I see those eyes just like the first time
Your bent and your broken with words hardly spoken
Lines that could never be wrong
They should be sung
They all should be sung
You’re a ghost in the room
A portrait with colors unknown
So why is that all that you’ve shown?
I don’t know

Open up to the unknown
Unlock the door and let me in
The night is cold and shivering
I want to know why your holding back from everything like everything’s a dream
And why
Tell me why
And I promise that forever I will never ask another question
I don’t know
I keep waking up a different person
Trying not to ever let it show
You’re a ghost in the room
A portrait with colors unknown
Safely armed with a smile but trapped in denial
And no one could ever come close
You’re wasting the ability to change the world like you’ve changed me

It’s adding up, enough is enough
It’s been long and overdue
Wasting worries on all of the bullshit
All the good in life her fingers let slip through
And when I say yes she follows it up with oh no’s
And I find that so sweet
But it’s driving me crazy
I’m just trying to lift up this curse
I just want her to know what she’s worth to me
