Track Name: On The Run
through the night
my love is on the rise
satellite
heavy in the sky
but i see her
here in my chest
bearing witness
into it
and i'm under you
here in this place
moving over ground

on the run
faster, faster
where i was
to what i'll be
you're the one
i'm chasing after
don't you wanna be my baby
don't you wanna be my baby now?

i would find
any glowing sign
start a fight
fire on my mind
but i feel her
callin my name
disappointment
out again
and i hide away
sober up
and carry back to you

on the run
faster, faster
where i was
to what i'll be
you're the one
i'm chasing after
don't you wanna be my baby
don't you wanna be my baby now?

there's time

on the run
faster, faster
where i was
to what i'll be
you're the one
i'm chasing after
don't you wanna be my baby?
Track Name: Better Off
better to hold my own
alone here, empty handed
than struggle in earnest
reaching out
above the quicksand
better to bite my tongue
an inch off, nothing new
than tell you the truth
that we were long gone

erase me now, phase me out
lost out loud
and better off

better to lie about
the consequences had
in relative sleeplessness,
an empty lover's bed
better to lose you
better to leave you all alone
with my shadow on the wall

erase me now, phase me out
lost out loud
and better off

i dreamt about a poet and a king
they taught me almost everything
and i thought that i might tell you when i woke
but you were gone

erase me now, phase me out
lost out loud
and better off
better off
Track Name: Overthrow
somewhere in a well made house
she's getting with a new dude
tell me what i don't know
love is changing all the time
maybe he's a good man
maybe he's an open book

that you can read
and read between the lines
got no shadow pages
easy isn't hard to find
when you're looking for it

don't let love go
don't let love go
in an overthrow
don't let love go
don't let love go
even in an overthrow

painter in an empty room
but there's nothing on the far wall
i guess i didn't know you too
and i don't care if you don't know
given it's hard enough to care at all

that you can read
and read between the lines
all the shadow pages
easy isn't hard to find
when you're looking for it

don't let love go
don't let love go
in an overthrow
don't let love go
don't let love go
even in an overthrow

it's hard to find
peace of mind
or a stable sign
when it's on and on we go

don't let love go
don't let love go
in an overthrow
don't let love go
don't let love go
even in an overthrow
Track Name: Game Of Hearts
bluegrass
green, green water
and you're moving slow
but you dream of a daughter
none of this is real

give it a name
give it a name
this is insane
what are we doing
in a game of hearts
even if it's love

storm child,
mind on horizons
and you know it's wrong
but you drown in the silence
none of this is real

give it a name
give it a name
this is insane
what are we doing
in a game of hearts
even if it's love
