Track Name: leaves in a lunchbox
she sat on a tree stump and counted every ring to see if she had lived longer and what kind of life it lived
she keeps leaves in a lunchbox as a reminder that new life will come around again even when we break and fall

so kick the hourglass and turn it upside down
because second chances can't always be found
life was leaving but it's turning back around to start again

she loosened her kerchief and threw it into the wind
the sun peeked through the clouds and surrounded her peach fuzz head
she said "there's more I'm gonna be. there's more I'm gonna see before I leave."

so kick the hourglass and turn it upside down
because second chances can't always be found
life was leaving but it's turning back around to start again
Track Name: best friends
settle down
live it up
spend it all
save it up
let it out
keep it in
be a saint
be a sinner
either way i wont do this on my own
i have friends to call my own
i can say theyre by my side through anything

hold on give it up
push me down
pick me up
leave town
stick around
we'll find each other anyhow
either way i wont do this on my own
i have friends to call my own
i can say theyre by my side through anything

you catch my falls
you pick me up
you're my best friends
Track Name: spouses
i'm looking inside of your houses
i wanna see all of the spouses
how they live
how they speak
who's the strong
who's the weak one
are you really in love?
i envy anyone that's still connected
i guess you're some of the lucky ones
i hope i am too
Track Name: red lights
you go walking in the same straight line
never straying always staying on the inside
tip toeing to the edge of the ledge
always testing waters out
running your mouth about what you wanna do but in the end you're just running in place
life is for living so man up and grab the wheel and leave your past inside the rearview mirror

we're passing all the red lights
no time for any red lights
we're moving through the red lights

necessary evils, we gotta meet em face to face until we beat em
look in the mirror to see it clearer
the end is nearer than you think
you better swim or sink
i wanna help you but i dont know what to do when you dont even wanna help yourself
we need to motivate and elevate our state of mind or you're gonna get left behind


we're passing all the red lights
no time for any red lights
we're moving through the red lights
there's no stopping
Track Name: phone #
if you're up or you're down
doesn't matter, come around
i'm your protection
i'll build you up
break you down
help you see what can be found inside my protection
you dont even need an excuse to call me up
no you dont ever have to hesitate
we got one another to hold our heads up high
and brighten up each other's days

you've got my phone number
if you ever need me, you could call me anytime

the color's bright in my mind
open up
come inside
feel the connection
put your weight down on me
i can handle anything
you've got my attention
you dont even need an excuse to call me up
no you dont ever have to hesitate
we got one another to hold our heads up high
and brighten up each other's days

you've got my phone number
if you ever need me
you could call me anytime

anytime is always a good time
so come on over soon
Track Name: destinations
how've you been?
well i've been running from my own mind
where've you been?
well i've been climbing the stairs to the unknown
just trying to enjoy the mystery

how've you been?
well i've been wrapping myself up in silence
where've you been?
well i've been wondering where i belong now
and who you're gonna belong to next

and we're holding on to nothing but our conversations
sharing all the stars from our different destinations
how long til this fades?
i'll hold on til this fades
Track Name: bgs
we're all here to lift you up off the tracks and bring you home
wash your filthy hands and take your hat and put it by the stove
sit you down in a beat up chair
dress you up in thrift store clothes
smack you upside your head
curse you out for leaving us
how could you?

wish you'd come around again
we'd love to see our friend again

take a good look around at all the friends you left behind
we all raise our glasses up
drink it down to ease our minds and remember you
share a smoke and then we'll go
leave your things the way you are
shove you out into the light
we just needed to say goodbye one more time

wish you'd come around again
we'd love to see our friend again
you're gone but not forgotten
Track Name: catch the breeze
little feet hang over a wooden rocking chair
bright eyes are open wide beneath the windowsill
watch as the clouds roll by in shapes that look familiar
daydreams take flight outside the open window as he smiles

bigger feet occupy the wooden floor beneath the blood shot and lonely eyes that struggle to stay open
just like the window he used to dream in color
but all he sees is black in his own relection

wake up and get up on your feet
the window's closing but it's never out of reach
so catch the breeze
see where it takes you
time won't wait for anyone
the world is waiting but you gotta run
and catch the breeze
see where it takes you
Track Name: how she said it
she was helping with the kids when he came rolling up the stairs
there was a trail of wet footprints and bubbles filled the air
there was a sound of laughter that was pulling him in the room
and two angels scrambled out as she said "I need you"
so he washed away the day and slipped inside a brand new pair
there was a stampede coming as he headed for the stairs
yeah he was tired but so in love that he didn't even care
he caught one in each arm as she said "We missed you"

it's not what she said. it's how she said it
Track Name: awakenings
eyes open to screams underneath the floor below
shaken she hides under the sheets
she's holding on to pictures of them holding hands
wishing that she knew them back then
what's become of the ones she loves has her screaming to the ceiling above
"love found them and awakened everything
don't let it be taken away"

sleeping is an easy escape
but haunting, heavy foot steps keep her awake
he's knocking on the door
she doesn't know what for
she never answers it
this Sunday ritual is so predictable
but tonight is different
there's a shadow in the window fogging up the glass with his breath
she goes into the closet and gathers all the things she's prepared
walking to the window she sees the picture of her parents holding hands
she grabs it like a bandage to cover up the damage they created in her head
the cold air rushes in as she's pulled out next to him
they're ready to begin the life that she wanted for the ones that she's leaving
she's screaming "love found me and awakened everything. come and let it take me away"
Track Name: find your way
i understand why you gotta leave but it's still burning a hole inside of me
i hope you find what you're looking for and when you find it i hope you bring it back to me
i wanna kiss your face and hold you tight
and i don't wanna be saying goodbye
i wanna take it back to the start

i keep your paintings hanging on the wall
and when i miss you it turns into a museum dedicated to the love and life that we will never forget
how could we ever forget?
all i want for you is happiness and i'll hurt if it's helping you to find yourself
i always thought i'd be the one to save you
but instead i'm saving all your belongings
i'm holding onto whatever i can
i swear i'm feeling you wherever i'm standing

i will wait for you to say that you can't leave and you are staying
oh i'll wait for you to find your way back to me
but it's a lonely wait

hurry up and find your way and come back to me
