Here I sit on Santa Monica, I wonder where you are. I fight the urge to call you up, 'cause you have never seemed so far...but California will not wait for me to welcome in the sun. If I only had the strength to let you know i've come undone...
And every night, I still surrender to these visions of you, visions of you. And I know I can't try to understand you, still mean nothing to these visions of...
Like a firefly, I held you tightly in my hands. I guess I never thought that I'd be missing from your plans. But hey, Virginia, it was you who led me back into the sun - if you only spoke the words to let me know i'm not the one.
Face to face, we dance around the corners of my mind. The lines are blurred as we fall victim to both space and time. 'Cause in this restless dream, I still believe we could survive...at least when I'm asleep, I know for sure that you are still alive.
Track Name: Slow Down, Stay Willing
I know that you've been trying hard to get back on your feet. Winter's lasting longer and the summer only brings the heat. But soon, I know that you will see, the pain is fading every day, and when the scars have finally healed, you'll find the words to say you are so much more than this…
These are the things that we hold in our hands, so how do we get to the end? Don't you let them inside to take all your air, 'cause I know you will breathe once again.
I know that you've been trying hard to fix the broken ones, can't stand to see the ones you love admit defeat and run. And so, you sacrifice so much to make sure they will never fall, and I don't understand how you stay willing, through it all…but you are so much more than this.
Slow down, you're just moving way too fast. Slow down, can't be weighed down by the past. Slow down, you are more than what they say. Slow down, you'll grow stronger every day.
Track Name: A Thousand Nights or More
In all my emptiness, I felt the snow and let it go, but we’re no longer hollow. We’re broken animals, just hoping someday to be whole, somehow we'll stay below.
I can’t fight this anymore.
And I can’t fight, can’t fight myself and all the tragic endings living in my mind. And I don’t feel right, thinking, “How much longer do I have with you,” tonight.
In all my bitterness, you hold me down with honest eyes, and they’re a color I have never seen. No, they are not oceans, but they’re open; arms are strong, and all I want is to believe.
I can’t fight this anymore.
We’re broken animals, just hoping someday to be whole. We lie alone and wait for answers we may never know.
And if we lie here, undiscovered, never live, but always lovers; if our futures intertwine, will our wounds heal with time?
Track Name: Silent Film Star
I don't know how to let go. Time stands still, burning slow.
But you, you never said…you never said that you would leave me here to die. You never said, you never said we couldn't make it out alive.
It's hard to say we're not the same, and how I hate the way I shoulder all the blame.
But you, you never said…you never said that you would haunt me like a ghost. You never said, you never said we'd never go back to the coast.
