Track Name: A Dream Of Gardens
There are shadows
in the garden
twining slowly
like serpents or vines

And they follow
where I wander
I have seen them
from the corner of my eyes
Of my eyes

So I start to run for shelter
And you're waiting with a smile
And you hold me and you tell me
all the secrets of denial

And your arms are wide and open
When you hold me it's forever
and our secret names are spoken
And our art is fine and clever

Where the shadows
were are hollows
like strange daughters
of the people in the dusk

There is fear too
in the garden
When we're near to
seeing faces in the dust In the dust

So I start to run for shelter
And you're waiting with a smile
And you hold me and you tell me
all the secrets of denial

And your arms are wide and open
When you hold me it's forever
and our secret names are spoken
And our art is fine and clever

And you hold me
and we make art
and you hold me
and we make art
Track Name: Feeling Fine
You're at the wrong place
at the right time
You're spinning useless circles
across the sky
And you're feeling fine
That's what you tell yourself
at the time

You're at the wrong place
at the right time
You're spinning useless circles
across the sky
And you're feeling fine
That's what you tell yourself
at the time

And everybody's listening
to the things that you don't say
And I'm writing letters
and I'm throwing them away
I'm kissing him in a subway
These hands don't shake
like they used to shake

And I'm keeping every promise I've made to myself
Even those ones that I don't understand
Track Name: Find (ft. Shipwrek)
this is the moment electric
the great divide
what came before
and what will come

knuckles grip the wheel
wind whips my face
haven't slept in days
my blood is shaking

What will you find when you get there
fall heavy to
the place this all began
What will you find when you get there
you saw colors, you saw colors and ran and ran

every mile driven
is another burden I can't bear
every treasure from the wreckage
trips me up

I'm burning like a beacon
for the blind
can't see the forest
for your brilliant light
This is what was and might have been
tonight

What will you find when you get there
stand steady I'm
the place this all began
What will you find when you get there
you saw colors, you saw colors
and ran and ran

this is the moment electric
the great divide
what came before
and what will come
Track Name: Loved You On Accident, Left You On Purpose (ft. Shipwrek)
and why don't you stay
and why don't you stay awhile

her breath rolled out in waves
you kissed her chest and said
pan away
I've gotta go
I'm not ready for this

and why don't you stay awhile
and why don't you stay awhile

I don't know the name of this town
it all looks the same when you
turn around
I'm tied and bound

and why don't you stay awhile
why don't you stay
and why don't you stay awhile
why don't you stay awhile

I'm having a crisis of faith
ill-prepared for grace
/repeat
Track Name: Violently Back
the heart's an unfaithful wife
fingers stop in their stride
you looked at me once like that
that's the thing with love
you tend to forget

bring me violently back
to that night
to that trick of the light you leave behind our moment in the sky

fell silent with a sigh
bring me violently back
to every dream that I've left undone

just open the door and let me in
just open the door and let me in
it's not too late

I just want you by my side
but I'm not sure it's right
can you build a life out of that
that's the thing with love
never know what you get

bring me violently back
to your fire
to your stars, to the peace in it

I pluck a shrug from your eyes
thought it might be different
might be different this time

bring me violently back
to every dream that I've left undone

just open the door and let me in
just open the door and let me in
it's not too late
