Track Name: Winter
some days i feel alright, already i am home
even though a cat ate all the birds in my front lawn

these days i feel alright, i feel already i am home
even though i feel as black as death, hey i'll keep moving on

that's my secret, not like it's a big one
I live down the street from a judge's son

and a double felony could help me rest
if only i could pass my driving test

i'll keep my flask close to my heart it'll warm it better than you can
I secretly admire how easily you can shrug me off

see the thing about being vulnerable is you're vulnerable, when you're vulnerable
sometimes when you're hurting people you don't realize that you're hurt

yeah that's my secret, not like it's obscure
my thoughts at times are a bit impure

and it's starting to get real cold round here
i just want to see you dear

the ghost of me out there swells, he is filled with rage
from my parents' thoughtfulness, and my living wage

he has no fear though it's dark at night and he remembers
he catches himself crying, he wishes he could stay.

cause it's starting to get real cold round here
I just wanna see you dear
I just wanna see you dear

some days I feel alright, already I am home
these days I feel aright, I feel already I am truly home
Track Name: Honest
and the words don't come out right, but i hope to god we make it through the night
and your voice would never still! and if it's up to me then it never will

the other night in the rest stop parking lot
you told me things you haven't told anyone
that poor boy knows nothing of what we were
and you like it that way so you can hold on to both of us
and you like it that way so you never have to grow up

but i can't
and i won't
but i do
so i will

love you

but i'm tired and i want to go home
yeah i'm tired and i want to go home

and the words don't come out right
but i hope to god you make it through the night
your voice would never still
and if it's up to me then it never will

and the next time that we meet
my thoughts though incomplete will be on you
and the life you choose to lead, be it with him or with me
I just want to see you

ha
ppy

living worthwhile and fulfilled
and though sometimes you're not thrilled with me
I'd be there for you
and I'd care for you
and I'd bear with you through your winter blues

but I'm tired and I want to go home
yeah I'm tired and I want to go home

and the words don't come out right, but I hope to god you make it through the night
and your voice would never still! if it's up to me then it never will.
Track Name: Jezebel
well I guess it's not what it seemed to be
you caught me in state of emotional undress

and I can't say that it doesn't hurt
and I can't say that it won't get worse

but at least I'll try

and I make good decisions in the tv I watch
sometimes it feels like it's all I have

but you sing the sweetest song
ooh, it feels like a symphony

you were born into this body not your home
at least that's what you say when you're alone
i will try and visit you even though

you say that it'll get worse
but your eyes betray the faintest shred of hope

that you could get out of here
and for the next few years you could be happy, so come away with me
come away

but I don't think it's gonna be today
maybe next week. till then I'll sweep the halls
and clean the bathroom stalls
just know that these four walls
they are not all there is
and I can only stay and sit with you

oh Jezebel you tried to shoot that congressman,
his name was Moses in your head and it all made sense to you

You were born into this body not your home
at least that's what you say when you're alone
but I can't help but love you even so

Oh Jezebel you tried to shoot that congressman,
he called down fire in your head
and it
all made sense
to you
Track Name: Moon
Maybe it's you, maybe it's me
hey maybe we could find a way to be together

but the moon is lonely tonight
i ask her to stay but she flees from my sight
and is replaced by her grandiose, shining brother
maybe they're lovers, I don't really know

maybe it's you, maybe it's me
hey maybe we could find a way to be together

cause I am lonely tonight
I asked you to stay but you fled from my sight
to the arms of another, I think I just might
go to sleep and never wake up

maybe it's you, maybe it's me
I wish that we could've found a way to be together

and the moon is lovely tonight
and you ran away
so i think i just might
go to sleep, and never wake up
Track Name: Pines
Talking to you makes me want to die
at least i would die happy,
knowing that you've been there all along

i was too stubborn to realize
that it was me
i may not have been the last straw
but i was every one before

i may be cold but i will thaw,
i just don't know you anymore
like i thought i did, like i knew i had

it seemed so much easier to live with it
then to face the music that we wrote
that we solemnly composed

yes i know that talking to me makes you want to die
but at least you would die happy
knowing that i'd been here along
weathering the ever-bleeding heart that i have shown no-one

maybe we can try to sing again
but i doubt it, and that's alright
it's healthy to have doubts, i tell myself

but talking to you makes me want to die
not in a bad way, it might be a good way i'm not sure

but i know that talking to me makes you want to die
