Track Name: Come Down Love
counting the days 'til the summer comes
it's not too far away
to wish away the time
would you be so kind
imprint this image in your mind

july sun burning out everything standing in our way
come what may

come down love
seal your fate
don't be late
fears abound
leave a trace so we might be found

come down love
from above
thinking of
everything melts away if we dare to sing

wouldn't be far to meet me 'cross the line
being the only one we've known
all our lives in this troubled town
wouldn't be far to meet me 'cross the line

come down love
seal your fate
don't be late
fears abound
leave a trace so we might be found

come down love
from above
thinking of
all the things to do while we're alive
this time
if we evolve past striving to survive
this time
could be the last time
there's no shame in letting go
Track Name: The Middle
erase the stone that you threw
run back to the town you passed through
the summer's calling
the rain's still falling now
i think you know what you gotta do

stuck in the middle between chance and fate
i connected the dots just a little too late
i'd say i'd be your mirror
as if you wanted one
i'd say that to you if i thought i had a choice

and i don't why i went away anymore

swimming in sun, got way too much time
to think all these thoughts, but no time to unwind
when you gonna come around
when you gonna show
it's a pity you're gone 'cause now i've gotta go

i don't know why i went away anymore

tripping up and i'm slowing down
went to buy some bread but i left with a gown
it's not hard to remember there are things worse than death
and when you're needing something there's always something left
Track Name: Little Lake
little lake
sliver moon
would you break your silver spoon
if she'll take you
if she'll toss you a boon

weathered gate
rusted hinge
leaving him out on the fringe
shouting baby won't you please let me in

and in the sheen of all she cares to show
he'll be shaping something sure and slow
fragile phrases, a simple song to send below

flooded field
muffled sound
she finds she's sinking into the ground
and there's no telling what's there waiting to be found

shades of green
shades of brown
seen every color in this town
now she's blind, she feels the hues in every sound

and in the sheen of all she cares to show
he'll be shaping something sure and slow
fragile phrases, a simple song to send below

winding road
rubble wall
it's no wonder that we fall
but it's a wonder that we ever try at all

and though he sees the lake beneath her eyes
what comes next will be a big surprise
the light shines through and that's the only part that's wise

and in the sheen of all she cares to show
he'll be shaping something sure and slow
fragile phrases, a simple song to send below
Track Name: Something New
open up the window
open up the door
don't know what you'll find there
i don't know
so say hello
i'm gonna find something new

turn over a new leaf
turn yourself around
you've been standing so long in one place
you've been staring at the ground
i wanna see something new

'cause the moon is full
and my heart is full
and my tomorrows are full
but not full of you

i'm sorry to have to tell you something i don't know
yeah, there are things that i don't notice but at least i'm not afraid to let it show
i hope i learn something new
yeah, i'm gonna learn something new

don't call me dramatic
don't call me anything
i just know what's at stake here
i've learned by now what fear can bring

'cause i've been afraid
and you swore to me that things would never change
so i'm out of here, goodbye
god help me now, i've got to try
and i refuse to turn my life into a lie
i'm gonna try something new

'cause the moon is full
and my heart is full
and my tomorrows are full
but not full of you

'cause the moon is full
and my heart is full
and my tomorrows are full
Track Name: The Wayside
can't help but show
the world of what you know
the momentary crowd left by the wayside
the moment we alight into the ether tonight

no one blame
sorrow feigned
sitting inside a mouthful of raindrops

to softly go alone
to points as yet unknown
seek to resolve this on the phone
the future's only as far as you're thrown

please to be the one to run to when
could be right again
'cause some things never end

battle the sun
feed on the old times
like never before

a riddle to none
a message or something
but meant for the one

with whom i remain
forever and sun smell
just leave it at that
