Track Name: The Sound of Your Voice
The walls in this home seem so thin
Since the last time I let you in
And every time I climb the stairs
Every step is aware that you're not there.

Chorus : But the sound of your voice won't escape me
The sound of your voice keeps deafening me.
The sound of your voice, when will it leave?

The sun hasn't shone in four days
The sky is filled with browns and grays
But every thought I have of you
Reminds me of the colour blue

Chorus : And how the sound of your voice won't escape me
The sound of your voice keeps deafening me.
The sound of your voice, when will it leave?

Someday it will all make sense
But for now I'll sit here on the fence

Chorus : While the sound of your voice won't escape me
The sound of your voice keeps deafening me.
The sound of your voice, when will it leave?
Track Name: The Closer
I won't take this anymore
You won't close the god damned door
The dark ages were worse than this
You've gotta stop taking the piss

Chorus: Cause the closer you are to me
The harder you'll break from she
The faster you'll run from he
The closer you'll be to me
But the further away you are from reality

Let's put it all into things that we can change
Inspired by the thoughts we can rearrange
Belief in something that floats around
Just brings us down, just brings us down

Cause the closer you are to me
The further away you are from reality

You've been drowning for way too long
His voice surrounding your head once strong

Chorus: Cause the closer you are to me
The harder you'll break from she
The faster you'll run from he
The closer you'll be to me
But the further away you are from reality
Track Name: Prize to You
I'm not going to right for you even if you want me to
All the things that are out of sight will eventually come through
The way I part my hair, the way that you just stare into space

I keep thinking that I am some sort of prize to you
Someone to conquer so unlike the others that you do
Soon you will see, that all you want to do is change me.

Chorus : I will give you one more chance to prove it
I will give you one more chance to prove it to me
But you had better move quickly, cause if you don't I'm gonna leave.
Track Name: Wind and Sea
Been a year since you settled for what you didn't want
Biding your time to leave
He treats you as well as the way you feel
Never gives your wounds time to heal

You are face down in the water in the deep end
Hoping to find something there
Maybe you'll swim for a little while
Soon you'll run out of air.

Chorus : You're the wind and he's the sea
Blowing through him recklessly

Living by the hour would have saved you so much time
What you hoped wasn't true could be
Searching through space, now you know the size of it
Still settle for mediocrity

You are face down in the water in the deep end
Hoping to find something there
Maybe you'll swim for a little while
Soon you'll run out of air.

Chorus : You're the wind and he's the sea
Blowing through him recklessly
You're the wind and he's the sea
Blowing through him recklessly
You're the wind, the wind,
You're the wind, the wind
You're the wind and he's the sea
Track Name: Every Morning
Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs
Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs
Then you climb into my mind's eye and oh oh, here's another one for the books

Every morning I wake up thinking of you
Every morning I wake up thinking of you
Then you climb into my mind's eye and oh oh, here's another one for the books

And you make me remember how good it can be
You make me believe me again
Yeah you make me remember how good it can be
Make me believe

Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs
Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs
Then you climb into my mind's eye and oh oh, here's another one for the books
Track Name: Tomorrow
A morning call put into you makes me feel something brand new
You teach me patience across the line and tell me it will all be fine
Move me from this place, let me step into the light
So I can see you by the light of the moon

Chorus: Don't be so hard on yourself, you said
It's a big enough climb for us both to tread
Just find a path that unwinds instead and it'll all be gone tomorrow.

I worry about the changes, how our lives can take rearranging
I'm boxing up history. Some of it still news to me
There's years of things collected, some of it I've even resurrected
Haven't a clue of what I expected

Chorus: Don't be so hard on yourself, you say
You've been sending me love from a long ways away
I've had my illusions in my brain but they will all be gone tomorrow
Yeah, they will all be gone tomorrow

Chorus: Don't be so hard on yourself, you said
It's a big enough climb for us both to tread
Just find a path that unwinds instead and it'll all be gone tomorrow
Yeah it'll be gone tomorrow, it will all be gone tomorrow
Track Name: Prairie Winds
Dust scattered on the streets that I call home
Must have mattered when the sun beat down on the snow
The air is warmer now that spring has had a day
Change approaches now that I am on my way

Chorus: Prairie winds please blow me home
It's time for me to be alone
Prairie winds please blow me home
It's time for me to be alone

The skies are bigger now that the sun has set it's rays
She holds close to her, so close you feel her pain
Her want to grow in you has planted only weeds
To find an answer of what you want, not knowing what she needs

Chorus: Prairie winds please blow me home
It's time for me to be alone
Prairie winds please blow me home
It's time for me to be alone

The walls I've built here are built from sticks and stones
The words I carve on them they break my aching bones
I'm getting older now, brittle is my mind
To believe in something that I faked through the whole time

Chorus: Prairie winds please blow me home
It's time for me to be alone
Prairie winds please blow me home
It's time for me to be alone
Track Name: Falling
Well it's a bad time to bring that thing up
Because that thing is gonna waste us so much time
It hasn't even happened yet, why would we be scared?
The only thing we have to prove is that we lived

Rows and flows of angel hair
You find yourself floating in the air
No need to look down cause you can't see the ground

Chorus: Oh I'm falling, yes I'm falling
I am falling, falling for you

Well it's about time to bring that thing up
Because you know it makes me laugh to see you squirm
It's all out there, no attachments
Living and breathing on its own

Rows and flows of angel hair
You find yourself floating in the air
No need to look down cause you can't see the ground

Chorus: Oh I'm falling, yes I'm falling
I am falling, falling for you
Track Name: Paper
What does it really matter now?
It's all ripped and tattered now
Looking through me not much to me to you now

This autumn feels like you did once
This sudden chill, it was your season
Guess I'll do without and I'll make it through somehow

Chorus: Yeah you've got it all on paper
You've jotted down all the things I did wrong
Got it all on paper so I put it in this song
Put it in this song

I thought it through once or twice before
I thought I knew, now I'm not so sure
Was it all a lie, could it be goodbye this time?

The things we said haven't gone away
They're in my head almost everyday
They may sting a while but I'll let them fly on by

Chorus: Yeah you've got it all on paper
You've jotted down all the things I did wrong
Got it all on paper so I put it in this song
Put it in this song
Track Name: Everything
Chorus: Everything you have works better than mine
Your cat doesn't shit and your dog doesn't bite
Everything you have works better than mine
The grass isn't greener when I'm the one you live beside

Your car is newer than the feet I use
And the sky is bluer beneath your rooms
Your clothes are cleaner and your gitch is white
I can say I've had much interest in my whites being that damn bright

Chorus: Everything you have works better than mine
Your cat doesn't shit and your dog doesn't bite
Everything you have works better than mine
The grass isn't greener when I'm the one you live beside

I'm the one you tell when you're leaving town
I'll call the cops when your house burns down

I don' t own a tool for every little deed
And I don't keep them safe by some lock and key
I may sleep all day and stay up all night
But the last time I checked I paid my taxes alright

Chorus: Everything you have works better than mine
Your cat doesn't shit and your dog doesn't bite
Everything you have works better than mine
The grass isn't greener when I'm the one you live beside
Track Name: Oh I Love You
I'm waiting for some sort of answer from you
A yes or no, a maybe so won't do
Give me some sort of sign to tell me what to do
So I don't keep wasting my time with you

I've waited more than a week since you last called
Drag my ass all day waiting for nothing at all
The tears I've cried made me realize the truth
That I just keep wasting my time with you

Chorus: Oh, how I love you

Days go by without the sound of your voice
Maybe it would be different if it was my choice
Give me some sort of sign to tell me what to do
So I don't keep wasting my time with you

Chorus: Oh, how I love you
