Track Name: New Calendar Blues
when I tell you I love you, I probably mean it
heard there's a big storm coming from the radio
but you've probably foreseen it
because you can't help planning a future without me

when I finally come over after hesitating for days
you barely act like I'm there
we're 180 degrees out of phase
because you can't help planning a future without me

I hear you from the other side of town
even though you're not around
even if you never listened to me
I hear you, I hear you
and I was starting to think things were my fault
or I could have given more
but we decayed over time
you cut off my air
I couldn't take it any more
and now I can't help planning a future without you
Track Name: Home
every time I come home it feels like things have changed
I love the city where the lights are so pretty but here i feel trapped in a cage
my friends don't recognize me, they think I'm still the same
I know I'm changing but I just can't place how I'm different
until I came home

home is where the heart is
that's what they tell me
I don't really see what they mean
but I've come home to where I started
and if the city gets me down and you're not around
this is where I'll be

I didn't know things would be this way
where all I can say is hey

every day I spend here is a day that's gone to waste
that's what I'd thought before I got caught in the lights of the city's haze
where nothing really matters when you're waiting for that high
you lose your grip and you start to slip in an addled lullaby

home is where the heart is
that's what they tell me
I'm starting to see what they mean
now I've come home to where I started
and if the city gets me down and you're not around
this is where I'll be

I didn't know things would be this way
where all I can say is hey oh hey hey hey oh hey hey hey
all I can say is hey

home is where the heart is
that's what they tell me
I finally see what they mean
now I've come home to where I started
and if you don't know what you want or what you need
you could always come back

I didn't know things would be this way
where all I can say is hey oh hey hey hey oh hey hey hey
all I can say is please come home to me
Track Name: Hope Clouds Observation
close the shutters, change the locks on every door
this temple isn't quite the same as how it was before
I always thought that you could read my mind
well, tell me how I'm feeling this time

I was hoping that some things would change
as you waltzed your endless pattern in my brain

I hoped you'd never leave
I hoped you'd always stay
but the only thing that I could every hope for now would be for you to go away
I couldn't love you, I kept getting in the way
we kept getting in our way

the only clouds were the ones in my mind
as we left this monument to tragedy behind

when I woke up in your bedroom it was an unfamiliar place
the evidence was missing, you had gone without a


I hoped you'd never leave
I hoped you'd always stay
but the only thing that I could every hope for now would be for you to go away
I couldn't love you, I kept getting in the way

I hoped you'd never leave
I hoped you'd always stay
but the only thing that I could every hope for now would be for you to go away
I couldn't love you, I kept getting in the way
we kept getting in our way

I knew that something had to change
Track Name: My Love Is Quiet
I'm flying, not falling
I've never felt this high before
It's freeing, this feeling
not needing you no more at all
but I miss the way we were when we were best of friends
we had a picture perfect start, now where's the cinematic end?

you meant everything to me
you meant everything to me
and I would stay 'til the day that you asked me to leave

I moved on too slowly
looking to the future with one eye on the past
I want to be happy
I know that you can help me
because I've always loved those eyes, I could be lost in them for years
I know a change is gonna come, we're gonna make it out of here

you mean everything to me
you mean everything to me
you mean everything to me
you mean everything to me
and I will stay 'til the day that you ask me to leave

my love is quiet, my love is calm
my love is the eye in the centre of your storm
whatever surrounds it, whatever you do
my love will be there, be there for you
Track Name: Sea Legs
how far we've come from, how far we'll go
how many roads we're yet to travel, I don't know
the chains that shackled us to our pasts
have all corroded with the weather, but we're built to last

maybe this time things'll work out
maybe this time I won't be afraid
to leave the house and walk outside like a normal member of society
I'll be proud
and I'll be free

what am I looking for here?
I am lost at sea
come on and rescue me
I didn't know what I was doing
as the sun began to set
I was hoping you'd find me and take me back where I belonged

maybe this time things'll work out
maybe this time I won't be afraid
to leave the house and walk outside like a normal member of society
I'll be proud
and I'll be free
Track Name: Going to Rhode Island
the morning rain is hissing down on our worthless little town
now I'm looking for you, I've found my trail
but I'm forced back inside by the wind and the hail
the gale blows strong enough to flatten trees
I'm totally oblivious, I'm lost in a dream

dish on the roof is a lightning rod and the storm outside is like the wrath of God
I'm putting on a kettle, I'm making earl grey
'cause there's no point in calling you, anyway,
I know you're never gonna listen but I tell you, it's true:
though tea is preferable I'd settle for you, anyday

mountains are flattened, the scene's insane
it's like Ktulu's rising from the sea
and I'm better than ever watching this madness
as I down my mug of tea to drown my sadness
it does a better job than all that rain
now all I want is for you to be mine again
you're all that matters to me
Track Name: Blue Wire
you look at me and I know this is right
I could drown in your eyes
I don't know what I'm hoping to find here
but I'll put in the time

'cause I could run away
anything, anything but stay
but maybe for today I'll take that chance

will you walk on the wire with me?
will you toe that line with me?
will you make our make-believe reality?
it feels like the first time

you say my name in the stable barn
I would die in your arms
you effortlessly turn up the charm
and I fall apart like there was nothing ever better

and I could run away
anything, anything but stay
but maybe for today I'll take that chance

will you walk on the wire with me?
will you toe that line with me?
will you make our make-believe reality?
it feels like the first time

I could drown in your eyes
Track Name: From Time to Time
I was running on empty, I was running on steam
caught between the promise of a better tomorrow and a worn out teenage dream
I was hungry for life, I was hungry for you, my love
we were waiting at the crossroads, we didn't know where to go, but we couldn't give up

and this life will take you places you'd never go
it'll shake the things that you thought you'd known
it'll break you when things start to fall apart
I wish I was ready, my dear

oh my baby, from time to time you still drive me crazy
no matter how many years go by
you'll forever by my star in the sky on the fourth of July

I was out of ideas, I was taking it day by day
but for a while back then, there was a moment when i felt things starting to change
oh, the gears were turning, I was young and free and wild
I was at record speed, I was in the lead, I was a callous heart on fire


and this life will take you places you'd never go
it'll shake the things that you thought you'd known
it'll break you when things start to fall apart
I hope you're ready, my dear

oh my baby, from time to time you still drive me crazy
no matter how many years go by
you'll forever by my star in the sky
oh my baby, those summer nights when we'd lay down by the sea
no matter how many years go by
you'll forever by my star in the sky on the fourth of July

and if I had to make the choice to keep this fantasy alive
you know exactly what I'd say, I'd take it back in a heartbeat
I don't know exactly what went wrong, but could you show me the way

I was running on empty, I was running on steam
I was caught between the promise of a better tomorrow and a worn out teenage dream
but with a tear in my eye and a weight in my heart
as I got on that train, all the memories we'd made came back
I knew I had to start again

oh my baby, from time to time you still drive me crazy
no matter how many years go by
you'll forever by my star in the sky
oh my baby, those summer nights when we'd lay down by the sea
no matter how many years go by
you'll forever by my star in the sky on the fourth of July
