Track Name: Sylvia
A million white suns, like Sylvia's days,
All melting in one, why sleep? Why sleep?
I dare you to write, I dare you tell
What you see in the leaves.
Not a light, not a light, just sun.

Been breaking down my broken door.
Your hands say it all, that they want more.
Just sun.
Track Name: Tremble Tremble
I want to collide here with you
I want to collide here with you
When our atmospheres combine, we’ll be one, we’ll be one.

Let’s meet each other like planets do

I want to be drawn into you
I want to be drawn into you
When our orbits intertwine, we’ll be one, we’ll be one

If you let me in we’ll become one.

Meet me when the stars have gone away
We’ll crash into this space
Meet me when our eyes have locked in time
Let gravity pull all our fears aside and we’ll collide.
Track Name: Walls
Always saw you around, never thought you saw me too.
You were kind of profound with your eyes all icy-blue.
You took my hand said, "darling, what got to lose?"
Felt the sun on the bed, 'til your eyes told the truth:

You were so cold, you were so cool
And I smiled alone, never could catch you, never could catch you.

I walked on alone, I was always looking back
To your shadow so long, memories brittle broken black
Couldn't see your tracks vanished in the winter snow
Wondering what I lacked and what it was that made you go.

You were so cold, you were so cool
And I smiled alone, never could catch you, never could catch you.

I never cried, I never talked you down
You were my life, you lit me up and burned me down.
I can't run from you 'cause you're always always around.
You're in my walls at night, you haunt the shadows all around.

With your beating drum.
Track Name: Rising Sun
Took the train to the subway line
Could barely see through the city lights
He knew the way through the narrow streets
Would never tell but I knew he’d want me

Some people say it’s just a matter of time
When you know how to make ‘em cry
He had a girl and he could have stayed
He said he didn’t want to live that way

He was my rising sun
And it made me feel alright
He was my rising sun
It wasn’t wrong but it wasn’t right

Sometimes wish it could have stayed that way
Kept a secret and kept us safe
Even when you held me in your arms
Victory was a tickin’ bomb

He was my rising sun
And it made me feel alright
He was my rising sun
It wasn’t wrong but it wasn’t right

Cause I was the lying one
And you said you didn’t mind
But I was the lying one
Cause I stole your heart but you never stole mine.

I'm your sun, I'm your sun, falling down, falling down to the breaking of the day
Your lies have won, your lies have won, stole my heart, stole my heart then you stole yourself away
I'm your sun, I'm your sun, falling down, falling down to the breaking of the day
On the run, smoking gun, firing round after round til you blow my heart away
Track Name: Love Can't Find Its Way
We’re falling down, I’ll leave the rest out of the sky
We’ll steal the sound, I’ll steal the sound out from your eyes

We’re underground, we’re breathing in this filtered light
The dream’s come down, the dream touched between your thighs

Will you know my name, when love can't find its way?

We’re steering round, we’re running circles ‘round this prize
We’ll seal the sound, we’ll seal the sound within the night

We can walk away, when we make mistakes, and we have made mistakes.

Love can't find its way, when the space is great, when the space is great.

Love can’t find its way, when we’re hiding from the same mistakes
And we can’t separate our broken hearts from each other’s embrace
Track Name: Highway 94
Come around, and bring the diamonds
From the silence of our sleeping,
from the pictures of the moment when we're lost
In each other, in the beauty of our meeting
In the painless resurrection of our touch.

This road it travels on and on for miles
We can ride 'til there's no more land.
This road it travels on and on for miles
And all the prairies reach an end.
Track Name: Northern Heights
If you won’t let me go I will understand
But it’s too much to stay, yet too much to go
I’ll see you soon
And it’s not about to rain in here today, I’ll see you soon

Don’t think that it’s goodbye, call it escape
I’m not leaving you, or leaving what we do
But there are words that can’t be taken back
I may leave this room, but I’ll see you soon

I can tell you care and from the way you stare it’s moved beyond us
Apologies, apologies, appalled at these anthologies of stories from the people who have come before me here
And to this horror I am not immune
I’ll see you soon

When we meet again my friends, when we meet again
I will explain why all my fingerprints have left a battled wreckage in their wake

When we meet again my friends, when we meet again
I will be happy in your company, free from all the baggage of this place

When we meet again my friends, when we meet again
I’ll say I’m sorry
Track Name: Take My Love
All my love, this is all my love
That I've been saving for you.
Build this room, we can fill this room
And we can paint it black.

I hope you'll return.

Hold this roof, I can hold this roof
And we can let it rain.

When we build it, we'll shape it the way we want
When we build it, we'll make it the way we saw
I'll be home tonight.

Shake these walls, no one breaks these walls
And when the fire ends,
I hope you'll return.

I'll be home tonight.
Track Name: Straight A's and Palisades
Does your mother know that you wanna keep him safe?
It's in the past.
It's not like she killed a man, but I saw his face in a magazine, I saw him blush like a beauty queen.
And I can keep your secret to myself, the secret that you've thrown into the trash.
The secret friends you thought you made, the secret history that you'd trade, and no one knows.

In here no one talks about it, you can hide it from your face.
The box says nothing.
It's not like she loved the man, but rosy cheeks and nicotine got her drunk on a promise ring.
Straight A's and palisades, you paved your road with perfect grades and no one knows.
Track Name: Starlight
Starlight, starbright
I'm going, I'm going now.

Don't laugh with your big brown eyes
And don't shake my hand
And don't ever wave goodbye.

Starlight, starbright
I'm going, I'm going now.

Don't tell me you'll miss
And don't say you'll write 'cause you won't.
And don't say my name like it's the last time.

Starlight, starbright
I'm going, I'm going now.

And Please be safe, and please take care of yourself
And please be safe, and please don't turn into somebody else
And don't run in parking lots, don't run with scissors, don't forget to look both ways.
'Cause I want you in one piece, and I want you in one place, so promise me you'll stay

Starlight, starbright
I'm going, I'm going now.

Starlight, says bright as your smile
And our hometown.
