Slip Away 02:49
You said I missed my step That I’m gonna slip away It’s hard enough to keep a straight face and Tell you not to worry But your direction changed Was it something I said That made you clam up again I know you tried your best Losing my head, circling the drain Stumbling, hating myself again I know it’s why the patterns look the same I’ve seen it all before, it leaves me wanting more I’ll tell you I’ve turned a new leaf this time Bite the bullet, get right Everything you wanted I know you mean well I’m a creature of habit still Searching for that new thrill And I love the way it feels

Garden 04:08
Jaded now that we’re sober I was holding out for something I could keep Oh love, I tried my best to shoulder it I left thinking ‘bout the ways that I was wrong What I wouldn’t do Separate the waters Pull me in two Abandon the garden To get through to you I’m finding out you’re someone I can’t afford to lose Shameless in my nature Wanted to be everything you’d ever need But the truth is I cannot keep my promises Though I’ll try to sew it up at the seams What I wouldn’t do Separate the waters Pull me in two Abandon the garden To get through to you ‘Cause I can hardly bear To see you torn and used A burden I can’t ease It purples like a bruise If I could be your cure It’s all that I would choose I’m finding out you’re someone I can’t afford to lose

Memories of a warmth upon my skin Circles round my head, it’s all a mystery again Wasn’t gone but I was ready to leave ‘Cause I packed my bags and shook the dust off of my feet Tell me you want me to stay And I’ll let my heart turn over each day Draw me in with promise of repair Hanging on your word, “Things will be different I swear” Carry on, and I’ll be waiting at the door Somewhere along the way forgetting what for Tell me you want me to stay And I’ll let my heart turn over each day it seems it’s Constantly changing shape Til we’re dragging it through dirt, and calling it over Whatever you want me to be I’ll play it out endlessly Courage is leaving me Return where I started at, and you exit out the back Memories of a warmth upon my skin Circles round my head, it’s all a mystery again

April 03:30
Stare at the ceiling Watchin it spin, I lost my feet A sinking sort of feeling I’ll sleep til it’s over Memory finds me Worn, washed up and brittling Show me a way out of this If only for a moment Rush to my head I don’t wanna know how it ends Times slow, can we forget That I feel younger when we’re hanging out the window of your car There’s nothing we could care about Thought I’d grow out of this by now But instead of come down I’m running in circles Give me a reason I’m reading the writing on the wall If there’s a point left in it all It’s dried out and fleeting I’m watching it all come apart It’s a chill that I can’t shake off So keep me from losing heart If only for a moment Whatever gets you through I don’t wanna know how it ends Times slow, can we forget That I feel younger when we’re hanging out the window of your car There’s nothing we could care about Thought I’d be better than this by now But instead of come down I’m running in circles I picked up all the pieces off the floor I waited all my life for something more than this I ran the race I gave it all I had To come up short, to never find it

Honestly 03:58
True to myself but I struggle with honesty Bury the thought what if things turned out differently Familiar feelings, dangling from a string Saving face, cutting ties with a part of me Want leaves me poor Always take, always more If stars could align would it finally feel like enough Wasting my life waiting for it to come undone Sure in my head, everything will turn out alright But honesty’s crawling back keeping me up at night Want leaves me poor Always take, always more So have your fill Find yourself wanting still What will make you happy Is it always chasing, is it always wasting Is it the world in your hands Is it taking all you can Is it using another Is it wishing you had her Is it breaking your promise Is it being heartless Is it throwing it all away Is it ruining all you made Is it ending up alone Growing calloused and cold
