Track Name: Wake Blue
Can't make it sit right
And try as I might
I just feed and feel the flame
That burns more dark than bright

I got to take you
I got to break too
I got to make do
I'm gonna wake up blue

Think me better, left alone
Even now that time has flown

You know its hurts me
But boy it keeps me sane
And now its got a hold
And you can't say my name

I got to take you
I got to break too
I got to make do
I'm gonna wake up blue

Think me better, left alone
Even now that time has flown
Track Name: Butterflies
We give away butterflies, I gotta another size shoe for you
Spend a day in your eyes and I'll wait til the days are through
I know how the saying goes, I heard it too many times
In my mind the gate is closed but I just wait in line

I'm under your wing but my heads high
in the clouds, I
Gave myself on a whim
And got lost inside the town
But I'm proud
I never struck him down.

One look and you'd caught me, like a fish in your net
Lest we forget I willed it to happen but what I want hasn't happened yet
Took my time, forever toeing the line
And that's fine but you given yourself to a man that got no spine.

I'm under your wing but my heads high
in the clouds, I
Gave myself on a whim
And got lost inside the town
But I'm proud
I never struck him down
Track Name: Clicks
Silently I'm lulled by your strange touch it's beyond blame's clutch
I can't feel the flame lick at me but you've burnt down to the quick of me
With the soft sun hung to my back and my little hands cursing the black
Your green eyes flickering and time's still tickering

I'm steady by the grace of the wind
It wins me over when we're stretched thin
Oh baby I must
If not for love then for your long lost lust
I'm steady by the grace of the wind
It wins me over when we're stretched thin
Oh baby I must
If not for love then for your long lost trust
Track Name: Fallen
I should've been falling
Instead I've been walking out for you
And if I never asked
The rolls have been cast, me out to blue
Sleeping dust
My sleeping's rough
And from dawn til' dusk
You keep me company
Giving up on Love

So why you giving up on love?

So you heard the curtain calling
And of course we were calling straight back
Into the stagnant eyes of constant surprise
So keep your words wise
Can't you hear the clock it calls out your name
It wants you back all the same
Just like me, Just like the wind
I can feel
Your patience wears thin.

Hang up your aching bones
My clothesline's waiting for you.
Track Name: Promise To Return
A debt that I never paid
It always seems to get waylaid
You've got me on my knees
Praying for a sweet release
A lesson I never learn
A promise to return

The earth turns sweetly
Can you hear that whispered note
What better end than to sail down the Devil's throat
