Track Name: Paper and Envelopes
I feel so tired
I could sleep till the end
This bed like an anchor
As the sea closes in
And I feel so lost
That I can't even breathe
Your memory the pillow
That is smothering me

You left me you left me this song
Scrawled on paper and envelopes
You left me you left me this song
Scrawled on paper and envelopes

I was blindsided
I had no way to know
No we weren't happy
But I thought that's how love goes
And I feel so angry
Your voice rings in my ears
Who gets the pardon
From the last 20 years?

You left me you left me this song
Scrawled on paper and envelopes
You left me you left me this song
Scrawled on paper and envelopes

And I could forget you
Move on and stand clear
But I won't forgive you
For leaving me here

You left me you left me this song
Scrawled on paper and envelopes
You left me you left me this song
Scrawled on paper and envelopes
Scrawled on paper and envelopes
Track Name: I've Never Met Anyone Like You
I've never met anyone like you
You're a once in a lifetime find
And I've never seen
Such longing and sadness
Hidden behind closed eyes
Apart from mine

Found one of your paper planes
Sent it flying on it's way
Out the window of a train
It'll make it's way
It'll make it's way
It'll make it's way
Back to you someday.

I'm boarding a train
Just south of Virginia
I'm waiting for deep sunrise
And I think of you
In sudden downpours
When driving through snow and ice

Found one of your paper planes
Sent it floating on it's way
Out the window of a train
It'll make it's way
It'll make it's way
It'll make it's way
Back to you someday.

I've never met anyone like you
You're a once in a lifetime find
And I've never seen
Such longing and sadness
Hidden behind closed eyes
Apart from mine
Track Name: Deep Blue Sea
I ran away to an island
Built up a castle in white sand
Set my whole life to remote and
Breathed a sigh of relief
I ran away to a new life
Looking for something that felt right
Making my way in the half-light
I was a real sight to see

I feel I'm losing myself
I am in irons
Torn out to sea
I wonder if you can tell
When will you notice
There's nothing left but deep blue sea.

I towed the line till the rope's end
Hoping to find a break to mend
I found only dashed expectations
And an anchor secured by debris

I feel I'm losing myself
I am in irons
Torn out to sea
I wonder if you can tell
When will you notice
There's nothing left but deep blue sea.
There's nothing left...
Track Name: Wake Up and Lose You
Say it again like you mean it
I'm awake now but I can still feel it
Hot breath on my cheeks that will dry all my tears
Say it again like you only
Promised me you'd always hold me
Words in my ears are meant only for me

You're lost
You're found
Your arms are around me
I'm safe
I'm loved
Your body surrounds me
The sun won't sleep and sneaks through my window
And I wake up and lose you again
I wake up and lose you again

Touch me again like you want me
Your fingers so real that they haunt me
Lines down my spine that go straight to the bone
Tell me again that you love me
And waited your whole life to find me
But when I awaken I'm always alone

You're lost
You're found
Your arms are around me
I'm safe
I'm loved
Your body surrounds me
The sun won't sleep and sneaks through my window
And I wake up and lose you again
I wake up and lose you again
Track Name: Me By the Sea
I'm glad no one's here
Just me by the sea
I'm glad no one's here
To mess it up for me
But man I wish I had a hand to hold.

I saw an old starfish
On the side of a rock
I poked on his back
And tried to pull him off
A crab scared me away
He ran close to my toe
But man I wish I had a hand to hold

I'm in the habit
of being along
I try hard to break it
I can't on my own

I'm glad no one's here
Just me by the sea
I'm glad no one's here
To mess it up for me
But man I wish I had a hand to hold.
