Track Name: Turn
wait while the moment falls apart
cause I'm still getting past this part
your eyes will never look on mine
except with secondary sight

maybe we were right
maybe I was wrong
only time can tell, but time is gone

so turn
turn me upside-down
until I catch my breath
spin me all around
until there's nothing left
but everything we were
and everything that never can be again
come on, love, and turn

put back the pieces that you stole
all but the center of my soul
take back the words you try to hide
because the love you claim
I've found impossible to find

so turn
turn me upside-down
until I catch my breath
spin me all around
until there's nothing left
but everything we were
and everything that never can be again
come on, love, and turn
oh, come on, love, and turn

love, you've got another try
but I'm still fighting for my life

turn, turn me upside-down
until I catch my...

spin me all around
until there's nothing left
but everything we were
and everything that never can be again
come on, love, and turn
oh, come on, love, and turn
Track Name: On My Mind
I can't get you off my mind today
it's funny how we learn to say
the things that push us far away
from all we want, and all we shouldn't need
but you're all I want
and everything I want to be

and some days there is nothing left to say
so I sit and dream and make believe
that you are not so far away
from all I want, and all that I should need
but now all I want
is something I can't be

and he said, "did you hear the sky is falling
and no one's come to save me from your face?"
and she said, "did you see the sun stop burning
when it stepped outside and saw an angel fall from grace?"

broken, and crawling out
a token of all your doubt
chasing the fear within
and fighting the tears without

and she said, "can't you see the shame I hide?
no, cause you're too wrapped up
and tangled in your travesty
of a life you say you want to leave behind
and so you'll run away and leave you on my mind"

on my mind...
Track Name: December
the times I remember are far more than embers of
long lost nights in silent December
when we'd sit there in our childish liturgy

when the hand I was holding was the hand that was scolding me
and I let go in the moment you were trembling
to see if you would get up off the floor

and I'm in love with the you I knew before

and in my mind you inscribed every contour of
thick disguise that encased your sorrows
as you whispered, "forever I am yours"

then drive I did when your words weren't so welcoming
and I gave up as the sun was beckoning
the sky to scream in colors from me you'd torn

and I'm in love with the you I knew before
and I don't know if I'll love you anymore

soft and sweetly, too discreetly
hide me from your loves anew
come December I'll remember
everything they never knew

I'm in love with the you I knew before
and I don't know if I'll love you anymore
cause I'm in love with the you I knew before
and I don't know if I'll love you anymore

waste, don't waste my time
tear your heart from mine
save your energy for the next love you'll run away from
Track Name: Florida
run back to the ocean
to all the lives we lead
down the coast of Florida
pass the memories to me

lovers still the moment
driving in the rain
we could steal forever
if I could just come home to stay

and I don't mean to take your time
when my heart is on the line

I need you, love, beside me
I need your eyes in mine
I try to say it's alright
but I'm so afraid of lost time
you tell me you'll be waiting
but how long will you wait
till you don't need me anymore

our song and simple story
are on the A1A
but your touch and all your beauty
are a thousand miles away

and I don't mean to waste your life
love, my heart is no more mine

I need you, love, beside me
I need your eyes in mine
I try to say it's alright
but I'm so afraid of lost time
you tell me you'll be waiting
but how long will you wait
till you don't need me anymore

I'm not afraid of tomorrow
if you can give me today
but if it's too much to ask
I promise I'll be ok

I need you, love, beside me
I need your hand in mine
I try to say it's alright
but I'm so afraid of lost time
you tell me you'll be waiting
but how long will you wait
till you don't need me anymore

run back to the ocean
to all the lives we lead
down the coast of Florida
but if I could just come home
if I could just come home to stay
Track Name: Our Winter
three years so much can change
our lives the fates arrange
your heart no longer mine
to take or leave behind

there's never a question
and no need for answers
but we were much simpler
when this was our winter

into the night I drive
running from city lights
you should be here with me
then maybe you'd believe

there's never a question
and no need for answers
but we were much simpler
when this was our winter

our love is a room
darker than night
colder than hate
but stronger than life
crumbling down
battered by time
ridden with fear
infested with lies

so let's burn it down
let's burn it down
let's burn it down
and build it anew

these years have come and gone
and still we sing this song
of windswept winter nights
and dreams of other lives

there's never a question
and no need for answers
but we were much simpler
when this was our winter
Track Name: Wait
shut your bright eyes
just drink this down
breathe deep black sky
painting this town
come here, come now

I'll wait for you
somehow I'll wait for you

hush, love, don't cry
I won't let you drown
in my grave I'll lie
till your love I've found
to your heart I'm bound

I'll wait for you
somehow I'll wait for you
and now I'll wait for you
somehow I'll wait for you

tear through the night
screaming it loud
your name with mine
no sweeter sound
come, love, come now

I'll wait for you
somehow I'll wait for you
and now I'll wait for you
somehow I'll wait for you
