Track Name: Blue Jeans
I am drifting, floating, swaying, side-to-side
Water slipping, heat condensing, down my eyes

The ringing in my ears is fading now
I tried to forget years, I don’t know how to do it

Hand me downs and favorite jeans
They all get worn down to the seams
Like you and me
I bought new clothes this spring

Visions blurring, spinning, warbling things, I think
Saw my old friends, they were smiling, it seems

The ringing in my ears is fading now
It’s hard to focus down; I don’t know how to do it

Hand me downs and favorite jeans
They all get worn down to the seams
Like you and me
I bought new clothes this spring
Track Name: Calling Out Your Name For Nothing
Baby, I am never going to stop
I’m pushing a train up a hill
I’m pushing a train up for you

And baby, it’s a wash to try and resist
No amount of pain exists
No words can make me quit

Not calling out your name for nothing
Not giving up, I’m holding
It’s time but I’m not going
It’s not our breeze that’s blowing
Not closing up, I’m open
We’re not the card that’s showing
Just hold for one more moment, here with me
But if you go, leave a note

Baby, don’t you see this never will end
I’m always there around the bend
Always here to take you in

And baby, I’ve been holding both of us up
Getting towards the deep end now
I’m not giving up until I drown

Not calling out your name for nothing
Not giving up, I’m holding
It’s time but I’m not going
It’s not our breeze that’s blowing
Not closing up, I’m open
We’re not the card that’s showing
Just hold for one more moment, here with me
But if you go, leave a note
Track Name: Can't You Tell How Much It Means
Can’t you tell how much it means?

Running through waves
They’re breaking down just the same
Like I expected the old ways to change

You were out like the tide
And now it all comes to mind
Everything’s falling apart at the seams

Can’t you tell how much it means?

There’s a saying that goes,
"Don’t ever look back" and so
I’m waiting ‘till all our tracks wash away

I’ve waited my time
The sunshine of spotless minds
I’m never going back, it’s all a dream

Can’t you tell how much it means?

Nothing remains
Track Name: Don't Ask Me Why
I’ve been around but I’m not here to stay
Please don’t wait
Don’t hold your breath
I’m not worth all the blue in your face

Don’t ask me why
A hundred times why
Don’t ask me why

I wish it were fate
But the winter’s too cold to escape
Tried to stay silent when I left
But I slammed the gate

Don’t ask me why
A hundred times why
Don’t ask me why

This time tomorrow
I’ll be just a tune in your song
Don’t look out the shades
I’m not coming back baby I’m gone

Don’t ask me why
A hundred times why
Don’t ask me why
Track Name: How Far Would You Go
I hate the weight of it
Can’t seem to face all of this
Water logged dress weighs me down
Halfway at sea I might drown

How far would you go if you couldn’t see?
How far would you swim down for me?
How long could you hold waiting there to see?
How long could you hold your breath for me?

I’m treading faster but now
Sun’s covered it’s colder out
Float on my back hear no sound
I’m sinking with stars all around

How far would you go if you couldn’t see?
How far would you swim down for me?
How long could you hold waiting there to see?
How long could you hold your breath for me?

(Waiting there to see)
(Waiting there for me)
(Waiting by the sea)
(If you couldn’t breath)
Track Name: Underneath
Make no mistake
I haven’t been awake
Just at arms length
It’s clear but blurred in shape

I don’t mind, it’s only time
I’ll wake up soon, open my eyes

Been dreaming for a while
I’m in the blue not white

It’s been nice, killing the time
I’ll wake up soon, open my eyes

Darling, hold tight
Wait for the sunlight
Down here, out of reach from
Sharks and men who will consume us
So just hold tight
Stay the whole night
Here with me
Track Name: Rooster
I’ve been telling myself

Hold, go on, go now
I’m all about you aching
I want it all
Teasing body waking

I wait

Later on
Everybody’s waiting
I’d like to say
Pausing for the silence

I wait

I’ve been telling myself
Track Name: Tide Tables
You are always asking me
Asking me if I can be
How can I have any clue?

There is nothing new you see
It’s always been like this it seems
So everyone stop asking me
I have no answers

I swear
Just staying afloat like you
So hold you’re breath
Don’t waste it on me
I’m not going back for you

Please hold your thoughts, don’t let them sink
The rust has set, but it’s not deep
Tide is coming soon I think

I guess I can’t ask that of you
It isn’t fair and this is true
Ever since I left the blue
I have no answers

I swear
I’m staying afloat like you
I’m walking away
Been on land for a day
I’m not going back for you

Not going back for you
Track Name: Pinky Swear
Here, from up above I’m falling
And here, is the same plot calling
And here, is the time I know it
But here, is not quite what I wanted, but

Everything is leading me away (Everything is leading me away)
I swear I’m trying all my best to stay (I swear I tried all my best to stay)

I swear, pinky

Now, from where I stand I see it
And now, it’s not the things I needed
And now, it’s all disintegrating
And now, it’s all just so misleading, ‘cause

Everything is leading me away (Everything is leading me away)
I swear I’m trying all my best to stay (I swear I tried all my best to stay)

I swear, pinky
Track Name: Salt Field Blues
Now that it is slipping through my hands
I can feel it coming on so fast
Wake up when the sun has start to set
I can feel the night will never last

I don’t know if I can get away

How can you tell and what does it all mean?
I’m loosing everything I’ve ever been
Time is slipping by it’s not a dream
I’m loosing everything I’ve ever seen, again

I don’t know if I can get away (I don’t want to stay here)
I don’t know if I can get away (Maybe end the day here)
I don’t know if I can get away (I don’t want to wait dear)
I don’t know if I can get away (I can’t get away dear)

I’ve been loosing sight of everything we had
Track Name: When You Were Gone
I’ve been holding my breath everyday
Waiting for the storm to pass away
Carried everything above my waist
I dropped some things, they’re lost, but that’s okay

When you were gone

They’re floating out of sight beyond the waves
I’m seeing now they’ll all return someday
The tide is rolling in, distributing
Shells and things once lost that didn’t sink

When you were gone

And now it’s clear, the beach is empty, clean
There’s supposed to be a storm but I won’t leave
I’m standing and the sky is light and green
But there’s no point, I missed my chance, I’m weak

When you were gone
