Track Name: Close To The Surface
All the patience I’d been saving fell victim to the current trend.
All the pressure of your future had you stirring like a kid again, again, again, and again.

Go ahead it’s your choose if you choose, shame on you if you don’t, we could’ve changed a thing or to. Maybe we’ll never change the course of the ship, I’d like to think if we did you won’t take the credit for it.

Keep it close to the surface, impersonal and delicate you’ve got, calculated influence
Who stole the thrill out of all of this, give me honest, give me real, something I can finally feel.

Come and gone are the days that my shoulders bore a lighter weight.
Collecting debt in my heart that I knew I could not repay.

Go ahead it’s your choose if you choose, shame on you if you don’t, we could’ve changed a thing or to. Maybe we’ll never change the course of the ship, I’d like to think if we did you won’t take the credit for it.

Keep it close to the surface, impersonal and delicate you’ve got, calculated influence
Who stole the thrill out of all of this, give me honest, give me real, something I can finally feel.

I completely understand, the path that you’re locked in
Too dangerous of a plan, maybe I never stood a chance.
Track Name: Second Chances
Call me up I don’t feel so well, let’s go and sink all our options.
Cause I’m convinced the reality, is worse than we imagined.

You’ve got me going down town now, retracing every step we took
That left me upside down, wondering how we got here now

You don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s good, ‘till it’s gone now it’s over
I’ll gladly walk away, can a second chance erase a first mistake

Now it’s cloudy with a chance of rain and the glass is almost gone
Well that’s a touch on the brighter side of the mess this has become

You’ve got me going down town now, retracing every step we took
That left me upside down, wondering how we got here now

You don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s good, ‘till it’s gone now it’s over
I’ll gladly walk away, can a second chance erase a first mistake
Say what you want, you can like this or not, but it’s over, I’ll gladly walk away
But a second chance is a chance I hope you’ll take

I’ve seen it now for a thousand times, the perfect ending fall in line
Day by day still got to fight, to find the means, to survive.
Track Name: Every Beat I Have Left

Track Name: April 3rd, 1988
With confidence can I be clear?
I bid farewell to my anxious fears
On April 3rd back in ’88
I watched the clouds descend and try to take me away.

But if I had a chance, somehow if I could go back
I’d tell my younger self, slow down, relax, forgive everyone don’t live in the past
Cause these years go by so fast.

In the eye of the storm
I saw the trees bend back and forth.
It’s the day I learned I’m not in control
As the sky turned green at 5 years old.

But if I had a chance, somehow if I could go back
I’d tell my younger self, slow down, relax, forgive everyone don’t live in the past
Cause these years go by so fast.

I was confused, didn’t know what to do.
Do you feel like I do? With the weight of what is true.
Track Name: If The Morning Comes
It was the first day of autumn,
September of ’09.
Front seat next to my brother,
My view the country side.

With such high hopes,
On the open road.

If the morning comes, we’ll know that we survived.
And we’ll say to ourselves, what luck we’ve been dealt,
We’ll stack the deck next time.

California then to Reno,
Snow on either side.
Our sights on Salt Lake City,
In for a surprise.

We rolled to a stop
Every inch a tale of loss.

If the morning comes, we’ll know that we survived.
And we’ll say to ourselves, what luck we’ve been dealt,
We’ll stack the deck next time.

I think about it so often, what the desert meant to me.
It slowed me down with no option, perspective swing.

If the morning comes, we’ll know that we survived.
And we’ll say to ourselves, what luck we’ve been dealt,
We’ll stack the deck next time.

Chicago took me in.
Brought me back to life again.
I never was alone.
In my heart I found a home.

Still anxious at time.
But I’ll never be the same.
Never a simpler time.==
Track Name: Take What You Can From Life These Days
The kind of call you never want to get,
The kind of year you wouldn’t want to re live.
I saw some things I hope I never see again.

Be still my heart, everything will be alright.
Slow, steady, straight, moving forward every day.

Take what you can from life these days, it’s moving fast and that won’t change.
I’ll keep on fighting ‘till were safe.
Until my heart resolves.
Until all fear is gone.

You lost yourself inside this mess
Call it manipulation at it’s best.
Even so, you know we can swim out of this.

Be still my heart, everything will be alright.
Slow, steady, straight, moving forward every day.

Take what you can from life these days, it’s moving fast and that won’t change.
I’ll keep on fighting ‘till were safe.
Until my heart resolves.
Until all fear is gone.

Be still my heart, everything will be alright.
Slow, steady, straight, moving forward every day.
