Track Name: Since Then
Through the field to the fort
We can say what we want
Underground far away from what makes us scared

Pulling burs from our shoes
I got some dirt on my knees
Don’t forget where I came from this afternoon

There’s no way to know
There’s no way to go where I’m going now
So tell me something true
Before this is through let’s make it right

The pain woke you up in the night
We cut the cause with a knife
Laid on my side I heard you breathing
It was worth my time

So much rests on a though
Find the words when they come
And I’ll take a ride in the morning if you don’t mind

There’s no way to know
There’s no way to go where I’m going now
So tell me something true
Before this is through let’s make it right

I don’t think the same since then, since then
Don’t forget my name again, again
Track Name: Home/Away
I left home a week ago tomorrow
Said goodbye to all my friends and sorrow
Met some folks along the way
Saw the ocean from the bay
But I missed home and couldn’t stay for long though

When I left the trees were bare and weary
Premonitions of a day so dreary
Saw you walking out the door
Wishing things were like before
When I had a chance to love so dearly

Now that I’m back
Everything is so green
Don’t look back
There’s nothing to be seen
Track Name: Summer Song
Summertime don’t mean that much to me now
Hide outside and take that silent vow
You said it said it said it said it yesterday
Meant it meant it meant it meant it anyway

Close and far just mean so much to me now
Dress yourself up and take that little bow
I need it need it need it need it all the time
Sentimental when I take it all inside

Can’t you see the waves coming in
Let it go so easy
Let your mind just take a long swim
All it takes to free me

January seems so far away
Tumble down and feel the disarray
I get it get it get it get it in my ears
Take a listen to the sound of hopes and fears
Track Name: Clarity
You don’t want to be taught
Say what you want
I’m blocked in for now
Don’t know why or how

Don’t take all my time
Tell me it was fine

Remember songs we sang
They say we won’t
Remember all the gain
I’m not alone

Don’t forget the way
My leash means I’ll stay
Taking all this time
You turn on a dime

Don’t take all my mind
Tell me it was fine

Don’t be afraid of what we have made
Don’t be afraid of what we have made…
Track Name: Daylight Savings
There was a summer when I drove across the country
Listening to the mix-tape you made
Spent the nights in parking lots of grocery stores and run-down malls
Trying not to wish that you had stayed

Great Lakes and badlands, I tried to make a straight line
Back to my mountain home
I should’ve seen it coming, I should’ve seen it coming
I should’ve seen it coming long ago

Daylight savings time
The sun is out and I’ll be fine
And you won’t cross my mind
The sun is so warm and so kind
The sun is so warm and so kind

There was a winter when I stayed inside a cabin
Trying to learn what I was supposed to do
Splitting wood and time alone, it surely made me stronger
The sky was filled with snow or bright blue

Spring came, I packed my things and went back to the city
Missing the smell of evergreen
I should’ve seen it coming, I should’ve seen it coming
I should’ve seen it coming long ago

Daylight savings time
The sun is out and I’ll be fine
And you won’t cross my mind
The sun is so warm and so kind
The sun is so warm and so kind

Shine down on me
Shine down on me
Shine down on me
Shine down on me
Track Name: Better Man
We’re all growing old
You can feel it now, you could feel it then
I don’t know about what I’ve been told

We’re all feeling fine
We stay at home and sing our songs
Not all of us can shine

Spring is here and you don’t mind waiting
The wolf is at your door
Listen to your sister and mother
Pray for the hand that restores

We slept through the fall
Saying the things that we wanted to hear
We thought we saw it all

We awoke to snow
Vulnerable as the flakes on the ground
There’s still so much that we don’t know

Spring is here and you don’t mind saying
It takes a better man
Listen to the side you’re hiding
Make yourself a better plan
Track Name: Off the Ropes
I heard you on the phone
Don’t want to be alone
Drive to your house today
Say what I need to say

Bought you a winter coat
Will I ever know
All your secret things?
Let’s go dancing

On your way down put your hand in mine
I don’t know why we waste all this time
Just so I know that you weren’t faking it
Call out my name and I’ll never quit

Why did we wait for this
Even with a kiss
Don’t forget me now
I can show you how

When I go
And jump off the ropes
Scarred and teary eyed
I never thought you lied

On your way down put your hand in mine
I don’t know why we waste all this time
Just so I know that you weren’t faking it
Call out my name and I’ll never quit

There was a time and place
For a man like me
And I knew it would come to this
I just wanted to be free
Track Name: New Mexico
What did you say when I was out alone
Second-guessing, moment-missing, down to the shore
It pours and pours and pours

Try to keep my thoughts all gathered up
Past a year now, just don’t fear how they say we won’t
It’s thrown, it’s flown, it’s grown

Feel the fire
Flame the waste let’s make haste
Full of fire
Say the words that we’ve earned

Got the package with the key inside
So hand-written, savored it and thought of your hand
To hold and hold and hold

Let my mind go backwards and ahead
To the place where see your face there feel your own breath
The breeze, your ease, we please

Feel the fire
Flame the waste let’s make haste
Full of fire
Say the words that we’ve earned

Full of fire
Flame the waste let’s make haste
Feel the fire
Say the words that we’ve earned
Track Name: Rabbit
Headphones on
Thoughts should turn off
Sneakers on the path so soft

Through the field
See the children play
What can shield me from the grey

Rabbit in my path
Show me where to go
Go slow
Kestrel in my view
Show me how to fly
I’ll try

Shoe’s untie
Stop and breath
How could I ever leave

Heart beats fast
Covers up the sound
Going for the pass the long way round

Rabbit in my path
Show me where to go
Go slow
Kestrel in my view
Show me how to fly
I’ll try

I’ll try to understand as you hover above the land
Spread my wings like you tell me to do
But I am just a man
Yeah, I am just a man
But I’ll try
I’ll try
I’ll try
I’ll try
I’ll try
