Track Name: The River
Through the woods full of trees
Dead and dry leaves
There’s a place that leads to the sea

It’s held between mountains
Where water meets sand
And the rapids pass by in silence

Pebbles at our feet
The water and the sky meet
Ashes on your shoulder
Smoke over water
Come down with me to the river

The smoke it’s hunting
It's searching for beauty
White elephant but we know where it rests

We cuddle toward the fire
They share a cigarette lighter
The flames they blaze higher, higher

I've wanted to tell you
So many times I meant to
In the place where I met you

I don't know you
But I want to
Track Name: If You Go
I keep hearing footsteps thinking it's you
Hoping they'll walk through the door
But none of them ever do

Maybe I'm thinking too much
And not listening enough
And I'm just avoiding the end of the month

I've seen my life both ways and there's no way
That I'm gonna let you go
I wish I knew what to say
Oh, anyway you probably already

So what can I do to get you to stay?
I don't want to be selfish but you're all that I wanted
I'd put the ocean in a bottle
Or the sky under the roof of a chapel
But you can go if you have to

I don't want to save this for later
Like left over dinner when the taste falls bitter
I've learned to speak honestly and I've never been this kind of happy

Oh, starry eyed and dizzy why can't you just stay with me
But maybe I've got my hopes to high thinking about you and I

I've seen my life both ways and there's no way
That I'm gonna let you go
I wish I knew what to say
Oh, anyway you probably already

So what can I do to get you to stay?
I don't want to be selfish but you're all that I wanted
I'd turn water into land
Or hold sunlight in my hand
But if you go I can understand

So go, go if you have to I will learn to not think of you
So go, go if you have to I will learn to not miss you
So go, go if you have to I will learn to learn to unlove you
So go, go if you have to I will learn to give up on you
Track Name: One Lover
Time has never been my friend
It loves to play pretend
An intense round of what if
All take and no give

How you bring back the summer
The taste of a sudden lover
I’m falling numb all over
I’ve got heavy weight on my shoulder

I guess you never wanted me
Like I wanted you
With you I'd always stay
Even when you walk away

I think I’ve made a mistake
About our proximity
It's like I'm driving down a one way street
With no stop lights ahead of me

A memory I hope I’d forget
Why can’t we be unmet
Ignorance is truly bliss
It’s not worth this

Drowning is one lover
The other won’t get in the water
You’re a liar under cover
I should have known better
You’ll always pay it forward
The love I so delivered
Track Name: See You Again
My mind’s been racing
And my life it’s been busy
And the dust it is finally
Settling

If I could bargain with time
I'd make these next few days fly by
So I can fly
To you

And my hearts set on
That bright moment
When I see you again
And there’s no way to prepare
For when i see you again

Do you remember
The colors of my eyes
I haven’t forgotten
Yours

In a moment of clarity
Darling how have you missed me
You’ve stayed on my mind
You’ve stood the test of time

Forgive me if I don't know what to say
But I've got a lot I've got a lot to say
Forgive me if I don't know what to do
We've got some catching up to do
