Track Name: To Noah
"You always tell the truth, as if you somehow know. I'm surprised I look so young. I feel so damn old.

But, why would I lay me down?

They tell me how to feel, try and tell me what to think. The only thing that they'll control is what I'll have to drink.

But, why would I lay me down?

And the only girl who knew me doesn't even know my name. I thought she understood me. She forgot me all the same.

But, why would I lay me down?

And now he has my name, this boy I've never met and like the man who raises him, I wish I could forget.

But, why would I lay me down?"
Track Name: Hurricanes at Home
"No, don't ask me to go. I can't anymore. That place is filled with ghosts. I regret that the most; won't open that sore.

The moon guides my way in my sleep, as I run to the park where we'll meet.

Did something happen here?

No, don't ask me to go. I can't anymore. That place is filled with ghosts. I regret that the most; won't open that sore.

In life, when we meet, it's not the same. I made you an image you can't maintain.

But, I'll keep the fake you near.

No, don't ask me to go. I can't anymore. That place is filled with ghosts. I regret that the most. I won't open that sore.

When I can't admit that we weren't true. 'Did that happen? Who are you?'

I dreamt you held me dear (I dreamt you held me, Dear).

No, don't ask me to go. I can't anymore. That place is filled with ghosts. I regret that the most. I won't open that sore."
Track Name: Rainy Days in Brooklyn
"You don't know if you can go for every long. You don't pack a lot of bags. Your daddy told you not to trust the people there, so you mark them all with tags.

But, I don't know just what you meant to say.

I thought that going to this place could help us out. 'We just need a different scene.' But, when you talk, it don't take much to figure out. I know exactly what you mean.

But, I don't know just what you meant to say.
But, I don't know just what you meant to say.
You promised me there'd never be a way you'd save me for a rainy day.
'You don't know what to say.'
'You don't know what to say.'

So I find myself alone late at night. You've forgotten I was there. But, I seem to know a distant memory when we brought both ourselves to swear.

But, I don't know just what you meant to say.
But, I don't know just what you meant to say.
You promised me there'd never be a way you'd save me for a rainy day."
Track Name: These Waves
"Your lips are cold, but their breath is warm. This routine is old, but not yet dead to mourn.

To me. You need.

So we'll let them talk, as if they somehow knew those things that I forgot, those things you still can do

To Me. You need.

So maybe it's wrong to feel so well when all our nights are in a haze, but I can't wash away your smell, not even swimming in these waves.

To Me. You Need."
Track Name: Very Different, Beautiful
"You ask me to trust you. I don't know what that means, when everything around me will burst at the seams. And the scary thing for you is that I'd give it all, not to know that I'd see you, just to know that you'd call.

But, don't ask me to be someone I'm not, when I'm just the guy who wishes we'd get caught.

My words came, but they're not for you. They're for someone better, someone who would be there when they finally arrive and who wouldn't judge them when can't survive.

But, don't ask me to be someone I'm not, when I'm just the guy who wishes we'd get caught."
