At the ball I recall When You said Here's the truth Fruitless lies So sublime Damn I thought I'd improve To seem like the time For the ages But to cut deep Hardly painless At all I am not so surprised There's time There are times When You act on your own To seem like a time For the ages But to cut deep Hardly painless At all I am not so surprised At the ball I recall When You said I love you

My Bones 05:21
Everyday I'm wondering I'm packing up my soul I got to get moving In my world the ceiling drips The water slips You can't believe where I'm living Recently the world is blue Seen it all before A hand it comes It asks for more Pulls me up I can't believe that I'm living Right now Now... And I'm pointed west That sun ain't looking so bright Got no rest I reach for my clothes My bones are heavy inside (I'm alive it's alright) Every time I hear your name I'm starting up And hoping that you feel the same Simply put it's all a game Such a shame How are you gonna break away Right now? Right now... And I'm pointed west That sun ain't looking so bright Got no rest I reach for my clothes My bones are heavy inside (x2)

Saw a woman in the snow Standing still Now she's gone 50 paces in a row Won't be long Won't be long Forest runs our lives you see The red sky run your majesty Jubilation it comforts me It comforts me it Holds the world up When we're all tired of fighting for our lives Saw a future for myself Standing still Is it gone? Million paces up the hill Won't be long Won't be long Don't you speak a word of it Now let it go and conquer it This mountain range it's majesty it Comforts me I hold the world up Just need some time I am certain of that now Saw a woman in the snow Standing still Now she's gone 50 paces up the hill Won't be long Won't be long.

Watch Out 03:43
A shock Alarm Two arms I'm bitten up by something A swell Ferocious charm I can't pretend it's nothing The miles Your eyes Your smile Whats the use in trying? So far we've come I'm done I'm absolutely dying And I never ever want to have a broken heart A broken heart because of you (x3) Oh baby You got to watch out! Heading out alone Through it all I'm wandering Spread it all around This thing is meandering But we've been here all along So no not really leaving Just breaking up the scene Should be so relieving And I never ever want to have a broken heart A broken heart because of you (x3) Oh baby You got to watch out! And I never ever want to have a broken heart A broken heart because of you (x3) Oh baby You got to watch out!

Before you love again True love must be your friend In looking On the brightside Baby Moving to the side All things you never find In your life On the brightside Baby it's alright Mind the recent gap Between you and the reason For feeling On the brightside Baby Try to be around This ship could run aground If you're not looking On the brightside Baby It's alright On the brightside Baby It's alright On the brightside When the air is hot for you.

I bend the rules at night It's sumthin' that I wanna do I lie awake at night It's sumthin' that I wanna do Sumthin' that I wanna do I'll bend the rules tonight It's sumthin' that I wanna do And I better stay where I am I reach the mirror And I'm still asleep It's just I'm coming way down here My minds on the future I guess I'll go upstairs again I'll walk the streets at night It's sumthin' that I wanna do Sumthin' that I wanna do I'll bend the rules tonight It's sumthin' that I wanna do Sumthin' that I wanna do And I better stay where I am I reach the mirror And I'm still asleep It's just I'm coming way down here My minds on the future I guess I'll go upstairs againnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn (space) And I better stay where I am I reach the mirror This bayside life has got me full of fear My minds on the future I guess I'll go upstairs...

Firefly 02:49
I just found out you weren't ok The simple pages don't mean the same thing Closer we are The farther we go Knowing being is seeing we're all smoke I could stand here and spin a story I could stand here and spin a story Oh yeah... Quick were the days we spent our time there Under willows we counted our fears Warmer it got the more the love shows Bigger family we split between homes And the way the sun shown on your faces By the waterside The lightning flashes in the sky Those are fireflies The room we made behind our eyes Before we said goodbye Falling leaves We're back in our seats Take a minute to walk in those feet We made plans field, park and stream so Excuse me please May I have this dance dream? I could stand here and spin a story But I'm staying home So I guess I'm sorry (Yeahhhh) I could stand here and spin a story But I'm staying home So I guess I'm sorry (x3)

Just Great 03:29
"Never better" I lied Put you down where I like you In the corner of my mind Far away from the racket Of the actual going-ons Surround yourself with light Sometimes life can make you feel Like you've lost the old appeal That made you love the world And smile And all the while it's getting dark The Window shows a setting sun You're not the only one It. Will. Get. Better. (x2) (Hang tight) Sometimes life can make you feel Like you've lost the old appeal That made you love the world And smile And all the while it's getting dark The Window shows a setting sun You're not the only one It. Will. Get. Better. (x4)

Well something happened Turned it all around I need a minute To quell the anxious ground (Woah) When you're all alone Your heart fastens itself amongst a Perfect light When your slate is clear When you're all alone Your heart fastens itself amongst a Perfect light When your slate is clear Because of things you love, my dear (Night) Take what you're given Throw it all away But nothings granted It's noticed and they say (Woah) When you're all alone Your heart fastens itself amongst a Perfect light When your slate is clear Because of things you love, my dear.
