Track Name: her room
she dwells in a place hate will never see
in her own little mystic room
there aren't any walls
there isn't a roof
just an unbelievable view

this room, her room
is open to you
her room is open to you

you don't even know how long the winter
she's spent in her little room
you don't even know that she killed the coldness
with the fire she found in you

this room, her room
is open to you
her room is open to you
Track Name: in whispers
in whispers she lives
as his eyelids open, close
wake me
take me home

will you remind me what it's like
to live
will you remind me what it's like
to live life
in flesh and blood

wake me
take me home.
Track Name: letters & noise
all the colors in the world are yours
if you want them
all you have to do is surrender

go and find some grace
dig it out from your insides
fierce grace

all the love in the world is yours
if you want it
all you have to do is surrender

surrender
Track Name: out there
in my mind i'm driving
down that highway alone
it's december, feels like summer
and i'm out there alone

i'm out here for adventure
the adventure, alone

in my mind i'm hearing
a singing, a song
and i'm thinking if you were with me
then we'd both be at home

in my mind i'm driving
down that highway alone
it's december, feels like summer
and i'm out here alone
Track Name: the forest
a long time ago
an old man was standing in the middle of the road
he wouldn't let me pass
he said girl this isn't your path to follow
you've gotta find a way to enter the forest alone
Track Name: never better
pinpoint holes and superficial cracks
allow light to flow from the inside out
no camera lens can capture the magic of that

and no one can take it away
no one can take it away

the surface is rusty, adding character with age
we've seen so much worse, but never a better day
for this change
and there's not a single soul who can take real love away

no one can take it away
no one can take it away
Track Name: eggshells
we're only given this one life to live
why you gotta be so careful with it

i don't wanna walk on these eggshells
anymore

we're only given this one love to live
why you gotta be so careful with it

i don't wanna walk on these eggshells
anymore
Track Name: emerson
he said go
where there is no path
and leave a trail
Track Name: hands
i've never told you the story
about a summer night a couple years ago
the only time i've seen you play alone
no buffer, no filter, no barrier
between the sound of your soul and my world

and i've never told you the story
but my hands they were a'tremblin

and it's true, i didn't recognize this as love
it's true, i didn't know what the hell it was
it's true i knew at the time
it was way too much

and i've never told you the story
but my hands they were a'tremblin
Track Name: signs of you
have you ever followed the line on your palm
do you find a trace of me there?
i ask this of you my dear
i ask this of you

because i've seen so many signs of you
i've seen so many sides of you

late tonight when you sleep
in the color you claim to see
will you go and find me?
and will you take the lead?

i ask this of you my dear

because i've seen so many sides of you
i've seen so many signs of you
Track Name: the old familiar
if this is the way it is
if this is the way it is
if time goes by like this

well i planned on driving
for the old familiar escape
to save me from the feeling
of feeling amplified like this
by you
Track Name: patterns
it's a loss of all sense
it's a loss of control
this conspiracy of silence
is all i've come to know

you're the shapes on the wall
playing magic tricks with my eyes
you're the artificial lights
leaving patterns in my night

it's a loss of all sense
it's a loss of control
your conspiracy of silence
is all i've come to know
Track Name: shoulders
don't you think you can take
the weight of the world
off your shoulders

one hundred thousand million singin voices
there will never be another
like yours
Track Name: one-way street
this one-way street
can't seem to keep from troubling me

there must be something wrong
with these times
Track Name: so surreal
digging a hole for the seeds to grow
not everything buried is dead
quiet in hiding while we're riding out the storms
that blow somewhere overhead

living in illusion as long as we need to
the best things are so surreal;
building a palace out of handmade magic
for our world of freedom to feel
Track Name: september
if i could sleep
in your september
Track Name: this path
in the drastic range of shade along this path
fading, fading from light to black then back

well you're on my mind and i hope this time
we'll never have to say goodbye

well i close off my life to everything but the sounds
the noise of the city so faint and sporadic now

well you're on my mind and i hope this time
we'll never have to say goodbye
Track Name: ashes
if you think the phoenix rises from the ashes
well maybe that bird was never dead at all
it was never up to you to define its existence
and really who do you think you are?

you are not the sun
you don't have the power to burn
that bird was never dead at all
never dead at all
Track Name: take your place
i'll count the days of silence on both my hands
take myself away until you understand

no one will ever take your place
Track Name: new moon
they say you'll be home when the new moon comes
i've never understood why they say it's new
it's the same old moon, it's a brand new you
it's the same old maze you send me through

on & on & on
Track Name: standing still
i don't really know the way the world works
we're all just passing through
i can't see the answers through the walls of this room
and i don't know what will happen if i keep standing still

i don't know why i can't figure it out
why i can't get through
i can't see your reasons through the walls of this room
and i don't know what will happen if i keep standing still
Track Name: in a blur
fate lays its hands on me
in a move induced by you
one by one they pass me by
in a blur of little lights
looking away, looking away

it is as it's always been
it's only your choice to make
one by one they pass me by
in a blur of little lights
looking away, looking away
Track Name: maybe it's better
maybe it's better to walk on in silence
it's like fragile things crashing into walls
or fresh painted words on old river rocks
it's the changing colors of the seasons and this grief
well maybe it's better to just pick up and leave

maybe it's better to walk on in silence

watching this world passing me by
always from distance, always outside
rounding the corner now i gratefully feel small
i know it's a miracle to feel anything at all

maybe it's better to walk on in silence
