Track Name: Steady Us
Words - Like blankets
Comfort us in the harshest winds
Soften the fall
Show us where to begin
Show us the way when the bright lights dim.

Hands to hold the reigns
when we’re grasping for control
Greet our closest friends
Lift rocks holding us down
Cover our eyes when we despair.
Track Name: Nine Years
I asked you a question and held my breath as I awaited your reply
My sweet I’ll not forget you
When I’m done gone read that long, long letter
It’s nine years now since those lights went down, but I found a light.
Not another damn moon, but a beautiful moonlight

chorus -
Wake me up before I hit the ground.
Don’t stay away too long cause I’ll be home.
I swear I heard you say you’d stick around for at least nine years.

I stare at the skyline and I hold my breath as I prepare to fall
Most of those bright stars have dimmed
when I land I’ll ignite them all
Each of those nine years offered shelter and stories long forgotten
Not another damn moon
but a beautiful moonlight


You ask me a question and you hold your hand as you awaited my reply
My sweet I’ll not forget you
When I’m done gone read that long, long letter.
It’s been nine years now since those lights went down and I can no longer fight another damn moon or a beautiful moonlight.
Another damn moon or a beautiful moonlight.

chorus -
Track Name: Gold + Silver
A paved path of gold + silver
Swept down til there’s nothing more to find.
Stripped of all your history, your life’s become a mistery, girl.
You’ve left your past behind + someplace north of here you can be everything, my dear

They asked their friends to stand + deliver
But the river dried up + there was no place to drown
A much travelled road is intriguing
I know this journey’s misleading, my dear - I’ve been there.
And some place north of here I’ll face my demons, dear

They say every cloud is lined w/silver
That’s something I can never believe.
But these myths are a welcome distraction + your tales get a passing reaction, man
You’ve been down too long.
Pick yourself up + find a new place.
Somewhere those friends you lost will find.
Track Name: Giving Up the Ghost
I’m giving up the ghost
That’s held me back + drained my soul for too long now

I’m going down to the river.
Gonna lay my troubles down
Shed my woes + turn around

chorus -
Lord hear me pray, hear me sing
Hear me swear it’s over now

Over + over I have made the same mistakes
Losing focus - I feel like breaking

chorus –
Track Name: Stealing a Mile
The trail has gone cold.
Choose a partner for the dance.
In between some foreign sleep + a wind carrying your words
Candles burn so brightly, flames are sharp + blue
In between this graceful sleep is a movie + you

There’s a thunder looming over choppy waters
The sky is rolling + tumbling like a lucky dice
When the sky breaks the rain is washing me down
We’re not losing sleep tonight, no, we’re stealing a mile

Boiled over again, same differences way back when
I never cared much for sunny days or bright afternoons + the haze
Give me clouds + give me rain
Give me a day as open as the plain
Track Name: Head Full of Booze
It’s a little late.
You said something I don’t understand.
Leaving me spinning, realing + dizzy
What can I say to put this right?

Feeling a little weary.
Feel it’s about time that I left.
My head is heavy + you aint with me.
I guess I’ll make my own way home tonight

A head full of booze.
Rubbing my eyes just to see you.
I can’t hear your words + I can’t read the letters you left me

I cannot walk fast enough to shake off this feeling.
I can’t see through the tears.
Can’t see your face as I remember you leaving

Is this how it ends?
The sound of the radio blaring.
Headlights dimmed.
My heavy heart that’ll never stop beating
