Track Name: A Shoreline On the Open Sea
I have been away
I never learned how to stay
But I’ve been lying wide awake
Searching for the words that I can say
You told me once what I thought was true
Only to find an empty wound
So please, don’t act like there’s nothing wrong
You know there is, but you’re already gone

Oh, I have watched
These buildings things fall
But you don’t seem
To care at all

But I guess that that’s what hurts the most
The fact that you had seemed so close
But also farther than I could reach
Just like a shoreline on the open sea
But I can only just regret
That I had only tried my best
But I guess that my best just wasn’t it
I hope you find what it is you’ve missed

But I know that you had never meant
To cause this pain; to cause this mess
But now I can rest my head
Now I can sleep again

I know that one day you will find your own
Someone to love, someone to hold
I only wish that we had had more time
Before the spring had come to melt the ice

But now the ground we knew has come and gone
Now the season’s change is done
But with the sun I will start again
I hope you find what it is you’ve missed
Track Name: Apology Song
I know I have started to change
I know I was wrong
I was gone
You are not the one to blame
For all my mistakes
It was my own fault

For leaving that day
I stood beneath the wooden door frame
And I walked away
The last time I saw your face
But by then was too late

So I’ll write these words to you
An apology song
In hopes it will do
But I understand if this
Is too unexpected
Out of the blue

I just hope that you
Are doing alright
I wish that I knew
Wrong from right
I still wish I had you

I know I have started to change
Please don’t think that you are to blame
I just guess that our two separate hearts
Pushed us farther and farther apart
Track Name: In the Light
In the light
Of the moon
In the darkest night

Your eyes
Your eyes
Like stars
Like prisms filled with truth

But you’re no longer mine to lose
You’re no longer mine to lose

But in the sea
In the sea
The waves
Will bring you back to me

And everything
Every little thing
Will be
The way that they were

Before you walked out the door
Before you walked right out the door

But these nights
Are growing so long
Without you beside
Me when I fall asleep
And I know
That you’re somewhere else, on your own
And I wish
That I was the one

To keep you
Safe from the cold of the world
And you’d be my girl
But I know that it’s gone
That possibility
That one chance where you stay right here with me
Because those winds have passed
And they left nothing behind

But the scars on my chest
Where your heart met mine
Tied with sutures and thread
Hoping to heal, but it can’t
When I tear it again
As I lie in my bed
Holding that thread
That thread back to you

I can’t let go of it
Or you might let go too
Just know I’m here
I won’t lose you
There’s nothing more I can do

In the light
In the light
Of the moon
I will hold you tight
I won’t let go of you
Track Name: Old Friend
Old friend
Where have you gone?
I saw you run
Away last night

Broken by footsteps
The tear of the final thread
That kept the sutures in tight

But wherever you are
I hope that you’re alright

Old friend
Can you hear me shout?
Can you hear me now?
As I cry out your name

Bouncing off windows
Like glass panes of microphones
That mirror the same

I know that it’s hard
But it’s alright to be afraid

If you just close your eyes
I promise it will be okay
