Track Name: Hold On To Your Breath
There's no looking back from here
whose is this life i'm living

one of these dreams is not like the other
it's caught up in lace and left to forget it
on again off again stop me from sinking
burning my lungs saying I can't keep holding on

And the day will come again when you'll be fine
hold on to your breath as best you can
Knowing this will fade away in time

Emptying out my chest
a stranger's touch to fill it

Day to day we live like the summer
it's wallpaper thin and rolls on forever
try to get oxygen burning the same lines
searching to find little pieces of all we had

And the day will come again when you'll be fine
hold on to your breath as best you can
Knowing this will fade away in time

Soon, I'll drift forward from the state i'm in
beneath the mess of all we made
to your awaiting grace

And the day will come again when you'll be fine
hold on to your breath as best you can
Knowing this will fade away in time
Track Name: WAVES
In our evening's empire
between the basslines and the sin
You gently left a kiss to rest
placed against the softest of my skin

there it stayed all night
now it’s nearly been a week
this love stain’s bound to start a fire
that I can’t keep

It comes in waves
it better not pull you in
this is the real world

This familiar sinking feeling
as I lay my head to sleep
it’s in the quiet of the night i hear
the echoes of, this lovesick melody

gonna keep on kicking
as I sink into the deep
or this time i’ll close my eyes
and just let it be

It comes in waves
it better not pull you in
this is the real world

Crowded thoughts and minds
and it’s calling like a beast beneath the ocean
it’s all i’m thinking of
when all i really want is to fall asleep now
Track Name: Starry Eyes
Is it possible?
That we may never grow up like we thought we would
Surrender to the compromise and likelihood

The world keeps spinning around a thousand miles an hour
we will soon be forgotten so leave those starry eyes behind

how did we end up here?

And across from you
look upon this face just like you used to do
I'm praying on a fable in this empty room

The world keeps spinning around a thousand miles an hour
we will soon be forgotten so leave those starry eyes behind

how did we end up here?

You are noticing that these dreams are connected.
Track Name: Silver Birds
Take the call from you,
battered and it’s broken up
Say you’ll be home soon,
that it’s only a day between our love

Just one more day
‘till you

Like a light left on
burning up while there’s no one else around
I will hold your ghost
hold you under the sheets just you and I

Just one more day
‘till you

Oh lord,
you’re flying on silver birds back home
stop at the footsteps that I know
holding the sum of all you own

Just one more day
‘till you
