Exhale 03:40
Saved by the day just in time Just a little bit to let my head unwind Listen to sounds as they float about Lost in my head some of these days Found some good friends to show me the way Listen and you’ll stay engaged Two lonely sounds, two lonely sounds, float around Exhale all the air to make room for the new If you're thinking about someone they're probably thinking about you too Put one foot down so the other can move and Exhale all the air to make room for the new Luck’s still alive when I take my time The universe will smile when I’m caught in a bind Listen to the song as the chords change If you jump too soon you’ll throw the groove If you stay in that place you’ll miss the next one too Listen and feel the space Two lonely sounds, two lonely sounds, float around Exhale all the air to make room for the new If you're thinking about someone they're probably thinking about you too Put one foot down so the other can move and Exhale all the air to make room for the new If I wasn’t over there than I’d be right here And if I wasn’t right here than I’d be no where Listen and it becomes clear Not saying nothing new but it’s not really true Till you decide to follow on thru Listen

I lay in bed, every night With a song in my head Losing sight of what it meant When I first hummed along But here I am exhausting it Until night turns to dawn A heavy sleep comes easily When you turn the thoughts off It’s a sad time for looking up It’s a sad time for looking down It’s a sad time for anything When you don’t look around If you want give me a call I’ll be around I’ll try my best to remember to Leave my ringer on And if you want give me a call I’ll be around I guess time will tell if we finish well When I see you again It’s a sad time for looking up It’s a sad time for looking down It’s a sad time for anything When you don’t look around And so it goes, this time again As we come to a close You always knew but I doubted you So here’s to being friends

Six Years 03:08
Stretch my arms so far so I can’t use them anymore, no I can’t use them anymore Why do I give and give till I can’t give it anymore no I can’t give it anymore But I’ve a weakness you know my weakness is just seeing you smile, it’s just seeing you smile But where’d it get me, where’d it take me I’m just spinning in the mud I’m just spinning in the mud What am I saying? Why am I complaining? Well I got legs of my own I guess I can walk alone Don’t think I’ll mind it the peace and quiet Well everyone I see they’ll be happier for me But I’ve got a secret, you know my secret, Well I can’t let you go you taught me everything I know So how do I walk away, how do I make that space? I want those memories to last can’t forget about the past So it’s come to be this crazy mixing of caring for someone while you help them load up the gun Repetition is key in learning these things Well I’m a master martyr I’ll no doubt suffer harder But I’ve got to keep it, you know I’ll keep it, just to give it back I can’t accept what you lack But when I say it I know I can’t blame it on you and you alone I need to come into my own

In Dreams 04:55
Well I sat in the chair it soaked me up till nothing was there you went right out of my mind Well I talk to myself to help me listen the dreams persist but no one even Cares if all you do is sleep But in my dreams I know no one’s there It’s just me alone in the chair Well your mind is on to everything searching for dots but never Connecting the words to your thoughts You’ve written them down cause it helps you think your writing’s a mess but the ideas Come through legibly And in your dreams you talk in your sleep Awake enough to respond to anything And I can’t go on and on Looking for love found under layers of trouble And I can’t go on and on Looking for love found under layers of trouble The thoughts at night when silence comes the ceiling the blinds the clock all becomes one incredible noise And the focus on them is hard to stop but the thoughts to stop simply adds to the volume And in our dreams we become anything Behind our eyes a movie screen
