Track Name: Slow Collapse
if we knew what the future held
we wouldn't wait for sleep
we're captives to our callings and
the potential we won't reach

you've got to put it behind you
you've got to put it behind you
a momentary lapse in
the slow collapse we've put each other through

the only thing that dawn means now is
the ending to a dream
the death of our affection brings
a candor i don't need

you've got to put it behind you
and i'll put it behind me, too
a momentary lapse in
the slow collapse where we found each other

even though i've kept your trust
the sun's already set for us

i understand what's healthy
i understand what's real
i understand the depths we've plumbed
and what it takes to heal
Track Name: Don't Come Home
we started on our own
the morning light keeps shining all through you
pretending like you're home
i'm dressing you in attitude

you're slowly falling, you can't see me
my eyes are open, but they're burning me
we'll take the highway home...

why can't you just ask again
we need to do those things, like before
habits of an unmarked friend
i have nothing left to adore

you're slowly falling, you can't see me
me eyes are open but they're burning me
we'll take the highway home...
Track Name: Like Drowning
the plain, green dress she wore
a search for grace in imitation
to make them pay attention
before the bloom was gone
afternoons tied to the willow
or spying through the window

left behind, "care of the water"
there's no flash before her eyes
and it doesn't look like drowning
so never mind, never mind

to think what could have been
all the letters left unanswered
a promise unremembered

left behind, "care of the water"
there's no flash before her eyes
and it doesn't look like drowning
so never mind, never mind

whispering "care of the water"
there's no sadness in her eyes
and it doesn't look like drowning
so never mind, never mind
Track Name: Currents
like open shine
free from the sounds that take me inside
and ask you to come by

wish you would know how
i've tried, but i can't stay
i'll ask you to come back
seen in dreams for days

space grows at home and moves
in the shadows that steep in your bed
whenever this all has shown you a meaning
and place with no end

wish you would know how
i've tried but i can't stay
ask you to come back
seen in dreams for days

it's the currents, alive and alone
like our hollow wishes and tone
blame the changes that keep you away
in a city that begs you to
stray
