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

red lights 03:32
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

destinations 06:28
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

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

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

awakenings 04:19
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"

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
