Track Name: Never Want You Back
i never told a lie i didn't wish was true
she loves me like she's clinging to her life
the future's a phone call from the grandchildren's room
she loves being a mother, and she's an excellent wife
but the silence finds truth between every word

i threw my phone in the road in the busiest lane
cause it calls you by habit when i got nothin' to say
and it won't let me pick up if it isn't your name
and even if it did, what would i talk about anyway?

cause my secrets are told by the silence i keep
the whole world's on mute; only your words repeat

i won't ever want you back
it takes two and i won't dance
like you were taking out the trash
turning now into the past

my brain knows the pain i'm about to endure
so i'm stumbling through the day like i don't know my left from the ground
it's like time is a surgeon and i'm under the knife
and i'm not allowed to think til you're removed and i'm found

but those phantom pains ache like i'm losing a limb
when i reach out to touch you, you're just touching him

i won't ever want you back
it takes two and i won't dance
like you were taking out the trash
turning now into the past

i won't ever want you back
keep my heart and keep my past
and die alone from living fast
three more lies i wish were fact
Track Name: Bright
sandpaper skin / and pirate tongues
all knives and wire and salted sun
your bullet wounds / your dirty lungs
armed to the teeth with poison rum
and barbed wire

we've been to war with darker days
we've fought ourselves with no escape
but you wrote me down when i lost my name
so brother, i will do the same

and i'll sit through the darkness with you
til we forget how to speak
saw a handful of pennies in half
just to watch the sparks remind us
of when we shone so bright
before the silence got too heavy to bear alone

i've still a got a little rage, a little fight
it's hidden under all my worst regrets
and all my fears that say the cautioneers were right
so let's put the pedal down; see what kind of trouble we can find
remind ourselves that we are dangerous

so i'll sit through the darkness with you
til we forget how to speak
saw a handful of pennies in half
just to watch the sparks remind us
of when we shone so bright
before the silence got too heavy to bear alone
Track Name: Rogue Boat
when the rope broke i stood all alone on a rogue boat
looking for hope, or an old float
or maybe some break in the clouds
but the stars hid like kids in the attic, like a mother i'm frantic
but swallowed my panic and cursed what you did
what am i supposed to do now?

so i guess i'm lost at sea
on a boat made of things that i always did hate about me
so even if you called me home
i wouldn't know which way to go
i wouldn't know which way to go

hallelujah homeward bound
hallelujah lost and found
hallelujah siren's sound
hallelujah shoot me down
Track Name: Talk Me Down
let's trade these broken hearts for something meaningful
let's keep trading skins til the ones we're in are beautiful
cause for awhile i could not separate
mirrors from demons (no)

i was holding candles to my lies
but you were setting fire to my eyes
i was writing letters to myself
you were putting cross words into elegant tunes
you talk me down

i've battled with the truth for nearly all my life
i love an underdog, i love to prove them wrong
but what can i do when truth's the bullying kind
when it hurts you all the way down

now i'm holding candles to my lies
now you're setting fire to my eyes
now i'm writing letters to myself
now you're putting cross words into elegant tunes

so talk me down
i'm a ship inside a storm
save me now
i'm a room without a floor
talk me down
my confidence is worn

now i'm holding candles to my lies
but now you're setting fire to my eyes
now i'm writing letters to myself
but now you're putting cross words into elegant tunes

i was holding candles to my lies
but you were setting fire to my eyes
i was writing letters to myself
you were putting cross words into elegant tunes
you talk me down
Track Name: Dark Clay
I wanna be a shining diamond
I wanna sparkle in the light
I wanna shine so you can see the sun reflecting and remember all the warmth that it provides

I wanna sing to you in major chords
I wanna be your lullaby
I wanna be the last thing that you hear when you slip into the kind of sleep with dreams where you can fly

But I am dark, dark clay
I'm all made up of earth and ugly rain
But even when I twist myself to sad and awful shapes
You find a way to love me anyway
You keep finding ways to love me anyway

So maybe this will be my story
Maybe this will be my song
That even if I'm made from only cold and lonely clay, your love can make it so I'm willing to keep fighting, fighting on.
If you're with me, I'll keep fighting, fighting on.

(choir)

So even if I never sparkle
Even if the Winter's never gone
Maybe I can still provide a little bit of hope to those that need to know that everything's not wrong
Even in the Winter, everything's not wrong.

I am dark, dark clay
I'm all made up of earth and ugly rain
I'm the kind of scene no one should ever want to paint
But you find a way to love me anyway
You keep finding ways to love me anyway.
