Track Name: Lights In The Sky - Like Lovers
This is your conscience and I’m talking to you, and I won’t give up until you see this through. I’m just a man and I am talking to you, I’m done with playing these games, and jumping through these hoops. And I’ve got nothing to hide, and I’ve got nothing to prove, I’m searching the maps where you buried the truth.
So let’s watch the sunrise, and watch the sunset…
Like lovers who’ve abandoned each other… who haven’t even met yet.
This is your conscience and I’m talking to you, and I won’t give up until you see this through. I’m just a man and I am talking to you, I’m done with playing these games and jumping through these hoops. This is the wind and I am speaking to you,
A subtle reminder that life is what we make it, there’s no rules to this.
So let’s watch the sunrise, and watch the sunset…
Like lovers who abandon each other… who haven’t even met yet.
Oh we’re just lovers, yeah we’re just lovers, searching for each other. Oh we’re just lovers, yeah we’re just lovers, searching for one another.
So let’s watch the sunrise, and watch the sunset…
Maybe lovers won’t abandon each other; they just haven’t met yet.
Track Name: Lights In The Sky - Everybody's Something
And I wouldn’t have it any other way,
To see the world could be a great escape…
But I’m all alone, I needed a way…
So I ran till I was blue in the face,
And I found, that everybody is something….
And everybody is something,
But none of them matter to me…
And everybody is something,
But you’re the only thing that I need…
Wait, wait, settle down, I’m not finished yet…
I’ve got more stories to tell about the time I spent,
Finding myself, and realizing that, the only thing that I needed… Was you, in the end….
And everybody is something,
But none of them matter to me…
And everybody is something,
But you’re the only thing that I need…
And everybody is something,
But none of them matter to me…
And everybody is something.
Track Name: Lights In The Sky - Wanderlost
Memories running through my mind that I can't replace…
And it was just a matter of time till we'd part ways.
I never thought it’d come so soon, I watched you disappear.
Now I'm right back at the start again, I've wasted two more years.
I’m running in the desert in the summer with no fear.
We saw the mountains and the stars… the skies were crystal clear.
We swam in rapids and in lakes,
Painted the sky in every state, and made a million friends along the way.
Yeah, now that's over…
So I'll wander lost.
Yes, now that’s over…
So I’ll wander lost.
So tell me what it means to you…
To be alone and confused,
And I’ll tell you what it means to me…
A wounded heart, and broken dreams…
Yeah, now that's over…
So I'll wander lost.
Yes, now that’s over…
Track Name: Old, Bitter Bones
Im starting to doubt myself,
when it comes to this,
but then again,
ive never been confident,
in my ability,
or anything at all,
maybe im just,
growing old.

Its getting harder for me,
not to complain,
im getting tired of,
of myself,

if i could go back,
id treat the time with,
the love that it deserves,
we treated our youth,
like some disease.

and i know i wasted,
time and other things,
people prioritize,
and im destined to be,
an old man,
that hates the world,
because he's got nothing else to do.

we treated our youth,
like some disease.
Track Name: Transparency
I'd prefer to just shut my eyes, and let everything fade away,
I'm dying on the inside, Like the world underneath my feet,
Let me corrode.

It's the only thing I'm used to, I'm fading out,
just like you wanted me to.
I would burn, If you would ask me to,
I know you want to, I'm not worth the time.

Your roots, they pull me down,
and strangle me, my lungs collapse,
It's getting hard breathe,
and now I'm falling to my knees.
Track Name: Diamond Dust
and I’ve caught myself,
as I’m staring at the ground, for so long, i cant tell whats in front of me.
and it can't be healthy, the way i push on, looking for something,
for someone...
do you remember those tapes that you made?
do you remember, the promises you made?...
and i caught myself, being weighed down,
by not having you around, but if you're better off,
I’ll stop singing these songs, about us...
do you remember those tapes that you made?
do you remember, the promises you made?
because I do, all too well.
