LYRICS

The Night

Oh my dear, I’ve known you for a very long time
Oh my dear, I think I’ve loved you for a very long time
Stay the night, I think I’d like you to be my guest
Stay the night, and maybe we can find some rest

We could talk until the bright white morning light
And I might walk the thousand steps to your lips
My dear

I must admit I thought I was one of the few
I think I’m starting to get it, why they all fell for you
I must have been blind not to see you, shining moon
If you’re inclined, tonight you’ll sleep in my spoon

And we could talk until the bright white morning light
And I might walk the thousand steps to your lips
My dear

Grow

Here we go again, watching them grow while we stay down here
And jealousy is a sneaky enemy

Trying to keep the love the love floating around, kill the darkest thoughts
Focus on the bright side trying to play things right

“No need to worry” loops in my head, just give it some time
Though our way is different, doesn’t make it wrong

Although I do know all these mantras don’t last through the night
When my guard is down, I lose another round

One day I’ll be dying, maybe then I’ll know what this all meant
Only I hope I don’t have to wait this long.

No Empty Promises

I know you don’t need empty promises
So I won’t make them for you, for you
All I have is songs and faith
You’re my lucky moon, you’re my good fortune

And I want you to feel safe inside my arms, my arms
I’ll be your home, the one that follows you around, around

The Adventure

You’ve been talking in your sleep
I think your dreams are not so light these nights
I couldn’t help, I heard you weep
I bought some tickets, our plane leaves tomorrow

Let’s go find someplace where we’ve never been
Shouldn’t be that hard to find
All thoses spaces we’ve never travelled in
Let us go before we lose our minds

We’ve been talking about it forever
Now’s the time to make it happen
Sometimes we have to say “it’s now or never”
There’s a time for words, now it’s time for some action

Let’s go hitchhike some roads we’ve never known
Shouldn’t be that hard to find
I promise you we’ll never be alone
Let us go before we lose our minds

Ghost

You won’t have to miss me
I’ll be home as soon as the snow covers the ground
December is easy
It’s the months before that always bring me down

A ghost without a mission
Another year gone by
I’ve been trying to listen
To the tears we’ve cried

All I need you to believe
Is that I’ll be back when I am whole again
I’ll find a card up my sleeve
A king or a jack to help me be a man

A guest without permission
Another gear gone dry
I’m still trying to listen
To the tears we’ve cried

Unless you wanna come away with me
I guess we couldn’t go astray
Andie…
Andie

Airplanes

When the fires started we tried to take ’em out
Hopelessly
When the oceans rose above our heads
Not enough mountains

The airplanes stayed in the sky for as long as they could
Then crashed into the sea like dead birds
All at once
All at once

Now you and I are like Eve and Adam
And I wanna have children

Let’s start over
Do it better, this time

Evicted

I wanna be peace
I wanna be love
I wanna be the breeze
From above

In your hair
When you dance
This despair
I wanna chase it all away

I wanna live slow
And make you smile
Tame my ego
Throw it miles away

I wanna serve
The best I can
‘Cause you deserve
A better man

(I wanna be peace)
I’m trying to clear some space in my head
(I wanna be love)
Get the bugs and the fears evicted
(I wanna be peace)
Making room for some light there instead
(I wanna be love)
Making room for some love there instead

Fly

Say you will be alright
Say you will be alright
Say you’ll get through the flight
Say you’ll get to the light

Pieces

When I was 10, first of class
The future was bright and the stars aligned
Or so they said

I cashed their dreams like they were mine
Hoped I wouldn’t disappoint
And that I’d never let them down

Now I’m this bum
Singing songs of shattered hearts
Poor and lonesome
I guess I’ve had it coming
Pour me some rum
I’ll show you all the broken pieces of
Myself in a box

When I was 20, got this good job
Just like any good kid should
And I got lost

Thought I’d better climb the ladder
Sure that something was up there
Some answer to it all

Now I’m this bum
Singing songs of shattered hearts
Poor and lonesome
I guess I’ve had it coming
Pour me some rum
I’ll show you all the broken pieces of
Myself in a box

Still haven’t found the answer
But I think I know where it hides
In this venue…
Singing with you
Singing with you
