Track Name: acknowledgements
forever living on, first chapters
if we were ever on the same page it must have been
a different side of me that's foreign to your eyes
bound together by, a faulty spine

well maybe i just need a change of scenery
where i stop secluding myself from everyone and everything
get a job as the floorboards at your favorite museums
cause the way you look at art.
the comfort in your eyes as it stares back into you
yeah i deserve that too.
was this merely a rehearsal to you?

stuck living through cliches of actors and models
listening to "Heroes"
we traveled through tunnels.
Track Name: Waking Dream
think of all the kisses we'll be missing
while you stay, on the day I have to leave.

so very early in the morning
you'll fall asleep and I'll be going.

as i depart it seems fitting to flee
at this time, but just know I'll be
thinking of you.
as i wake
as i sleep
as i fall into this waking dream.

all you need for a successful romance
are two lovers whose hearts can't help but dance
upon the mere, musing at the other
maybe some other time.

forgotten the steps, but i digress
we must wait for yet another day as the sun sets
on a field of wheat, where i can life you off your feet

all you need for a successful romance
are two lovers whose hearts can't help but dance
upon the mere, musing at the other
maybe some other time.
Track Name: The Manor
sitting in the back row
sunday matinee theatre
don't act like i don't know,
how you compose yourself when no-one else is around
silver screens, fragmented stills of memory.

we toss around wine
treating bottles if they were a serving size
say i mumble when i speak
my teeth filtering what i want and what i think you need
these eyes
they often slur your name
"well what's wrong?"
i keep it bottled but it's the same old shit
just a different day.

the grass was never greener on your side
and i'm turning over every new leaf to find
a mirrored pattern, the same kind.

addiction's in my blood
there are just some things i gotta be careful of
what you heard was right
there's been a few things i'm not very proud of
but i could never do that you
that's what i keep telling myself, i don't know if it's true
but i could never do that to you
but i do.

the grass was never greener on your side
and i'm turning over every new leaf to find
a mirrored pattern, the same kind.
Track Name: Coax Me
coax me to reveal myself
all of me and my ill health
i can't afford to tell the truth
but somethin about you makes me blue

and this hue
i find comfort in, i'm bone thin
my skin is covered, in shivers
i miss you
but you sure didn't miss me

i told myself i wouldn't,
i told myself i shouldn't but you
convinced me otherwise
paint covering your thighs,
like a blanket over my eyes

and for a moment, i was me
and you were you
but i guess that was the issue

Je saigne mots (4x)
Track Name: m.g.
took your pictures all down
can't stand to stare at your face anymore
still finding souvenirs in dresser drawers
of the people i've been before
and i know i'm wrong, and i swear i'll change,
use all the money i save on food on a shrink.

there's a wedding every sunday at the inn next door
caught me staring, well aware of the day it will be yours.

i'll be your something blue on that day
i'll be your something blue.
Track Name: Uptown
while i fell apart at the seams
yeah i, fell apart
no nothing in life is concrete
watch as loose gravel diminishes me

am i your cloudy day?
or still one shade too grey
a winter tree
am i your single leaf?
Track Name: Backstroke (Colours)
stupid, so stupid
what was i thinking?
i've been drinking water all night
cause anything else and i'd surely make a fool of myself
it only took a minute for my sober mind to get me into trouble
i forfeit my right to be up front with you
to be so blunt with you, it's far too much to run from
too many a late night moving these things around upstairs
fuck it who cares
i wish i didn't

your catapult sent me straight to mars (behind bars)
surrounded by white walls (a phone call away)
a means to an end lets cut the shit and stop pretending
that we have it all figured out

my peers are institutionalized
to overpriced drinks and these long lines
half empty conversations, oh have you not found the one in a screen?
it just so happens that you noticed my band tee
as you mispronounced "healy"
i think i'd love you
but i don't want you to know my name

your catapult sent me straight to mars (behind bars)
surrounded by white walls (a phone call away)
a means to an end lets cut the shit and stop pretending
that we have it all figured out

all i know is that i live for yellows

find comfort in blues

and greens

and quite simply you...
Track Name: Coffee
how come I always end up pouring one cup of coffee?
i still remember how you take it
too sweet for me but just enough for you
but the part that's blurry for me
is when it stopped being so easy
it was bound to happen, bound to happen sometime
but i was kind of hoping that would always be some other time

I wish i had closed my eyes when i met you
they tend to lie to me when i lie with you
if anything it might burn a little less on the way down

i wish you looked at me the way that you look at art
the way i look at you
wish i was pouring coffee for two
and i still have trouble measuring out enough for me

I wish i had closed my eyes when i met you
they tend to lie to me when i lie with you
if anything it might burn a little less on the way down
Track Name: Mosaic
it takes time
a visitor now
spent four years of my life
as the glass your set aside
well what about my friends back west?
the ones too high to even text back
what about your friends out east?
the ones you're dying for me to meet.

how would you introduce me?

well i guess you're right
colour ruins everything
lets take breaths in black and white
bask in a monochromatic life
well what about my friends back west?
the kind you'd do anything to get back
what about you're friends out east?
what if they don't thing much of me.

how would you introduce me?
used to sleeping on the top shelf
my anomalies tend to blend into everything else

love me as if i died yesterday
tell me all the things you would say at my grave
it's a shame that i don't think that i would hear them any other way
so love me the way i loved you yesterday.

the way i did yesterday.

following footsteps in the dark
the countless times we've fallen apart
well maybe m o s a i c s are better left broken
we seamlessly filter out every bad moment
a makeshift storyline that's gone on for far too long
with just enough time
for us to come undone.
Track Name: Scenes From an Old Movie
where've you gone?
and where are you goin? (2x)

lately, we've been on the rocks
cannot stop your locks got me knocked out
consumed by delusion to you i'm amusin
oh what's the use in
trying to find a way to calm my mind
i close my eyes, roll down the blinds
your light still shines bright.

waste away while my castle walls are
falling down
it's easier when you're not around

washed up, shit out of luck
and i'm stuck in a daydream
tearing at the seams
the days roll by like scenes from an old movie
slow motion, easy goes it
i know that you felt it too.....or did you?
i'm sick of waking up cold cause this shit gets old

maybe it's time i let it go
cause after all
how can you miss something that you never had at all?

where were you
when i was walking home?
where were you
when i was in the cold?
where were you
when i was walking home?
where were you?
you left me in the cold.

i wanna know where were you
where were you
where were you
where were you (3x)

i wanna know.
Track Name: sunday's best
years
yeah you got years on me
but that don't mean a thing.

quit counting all the rings around me
quit counting all the rings
helping me (stop convincing myself)
that nothing ever works out.

hope is a dangerous thing
first hand seen it destroy me.

hope is a dangerous thing.

born facedown in a field of flowers
god turn me around to all i've been missing
a voice, that simply glistens
sam spends each day in his sunday best
hoping to catch you laying right under his breath
i know, that you're waiting.

are you still waiting for me?
like you said you would.
are you still waiting for me?
for once i think you should.
