Track Name: close my eyes
i get off work and i get on my phone
i wanna know what's going tonight
i shoot you a text let's chill
but you never reply
i muscle up some gumption to move
gotta get myself out tonight
but i could be anywhere in a moment
if i just close my eyes

so i close my eyes

i can escape when i hit the brakes
and i collapse into the sheets of my twin
thank god the covers don't fight back
when i scream into them
sometimes it feels like nothing is real
tomorrow's on the tip of your tongue
but the past tells you to hold tight
when you've found the one

so i hold on tight
and i close my eyes

i close my eyes

sometimes it feels like nothing is real
tomorrow's on the tip of your tongue
but the past tells you to hold tight
when you've found the one

so i hold on tight
and i close my eyes

i close my eyes
Track Name: try it
hold you closer still, i won't let go
it may be just a feeling, but feelings are for real
cheating death in dreams, i don't care what it seems
ripping apart my memory of things

i don't wanna rush things let's just take it slow
i never meant to make it so
let's let things be as they are
slow / cool
i don't wanna rush things let's just take it slow
i never meant to make it so
let's let things be as they are

it's all so
now i'm ready to, again
it's all slow
now i'm ready to, to let
you try it
ooh i'll try it

fallen enough to know, i won't wake up
you left it like a moment and moments are surreal
trying hard to make amends, never cared for consequence
empty minds make empty promises

i don't wanna rush things let's just take it slow
i never meant to make it so
let's let things be as they are
slow / cool
i don't wanna rush things let's just take it slow
i never meant to make it so
let's let things be as they are

it's all so
now i'm ready to, again
it's all slow
now i'm ready to, to let
you try it
ooh i'll try it
Track Name: accidental beings
oh i wonder where you went to
oh another day meant to be, all learned
i wonder where you said you'd be

uncomfortable with leaving things as they were before
accidental beings, no control
it was all it was meant to be
accidental beings, meant to meet
accidental beings

oh i thought about the colors
and the way you would project, in the night
the light among the bands that played

i'm comfortable with leaving things as they were before
accidental beings
no control, it was all it was meant to be
accidental beings, meant to meet
accidental beings, meant to be
accidental beings
Track Name: heard
i heard you say
embrace yourself
i heard you stay
oh, at arm's length
i heard you say
forever isn't over
but still it's not
t's not enough, i could get of

you you'll wait
but how long will you wait
ever on a whim
there's better time to waste
you tell me there's nothing i can say
you'll never win
i'm waiting for the day
Track Name: in the morning
friday
when the morning comes i'm slumbering
flying high among the whispering wind
and i'm never returning
drifting off, there's no way that you'd ever know
worry kid and you'll never go
not until your mind has woken up

i can give, i know you can give
giving away our lives to live
empty, so un-empty
if you could just see how i see it
dream, oh dream
it's much more than it seems
wonder wonder wondering
please explain what it means

saturday
in the morning i am fast asleep
trying hard to stay in my dreams
rustled covers know i'll never leave
sunday
in the morning you know i'm ok
trying not to feel so desperate
never trust what always drifts away

i can give, i know you can give
giving away our lives to live
empty, so un-empty
if you could just see how i see it
dream, oh dream
it's much more than it seems
wonder wonder wondering
please explain what it means
