Track Name: Untouched And Burning
He gives it up the fight is gone
Quiet at rest now
There is no movement at all
Inside his chest now

He is the seed that grows new men
The breath the motion in all of us

You have crafted us
We all reach for you.
But we don't know how to speak your name
Help us to love ourselves

There is a moment that we find we become
What we have always known that we could be
Look it's a secret revealed on the other side,
A language forgotten that we all will remember somehow

We run from want and we want to live
Hiding from beauty inside ourselves
But there is a secret inside our chests
Untouched and burning

You have put this here
So that we reach for you
But we don't know how to speak your name
Help us to love ourselves.

There is a moment that we find we become
What we have always known that we could be
Look it's a secret revealed on the other side,
A language unspoken that we all will remember somehow
Track Name: 10,000 Beautiful Angels
Well Amanda let go around Valentines day
She wandered around with some drugs in her veins
I picked her when she had no where else she could stay
But this worlds such a beautiful place

We all hold onto books that we read in our youth
We accidentally invent our own versions of truth
And I love the way the sunlight is dancing off you
And this worlds such a beautiful place

I love the record you picked out
I love the words that you sang out loud
I love the texture of soft sounds
Loved it when your voice came down
And when I opened the window
I saw that I was alone
And the beautiful day shown
1000 blossoming halos

Well I wrestle some memories back down to the ground
Now there room to expand in the absence of sound
How can you frown with your friends all around
While this worlds such a beautiful place

Look the leaves are turning gold
They say one day the world will grow cold
But our song is eternal
This day can't be bought and this day can't be sold
I dance with my own shadow
So content be unknown
I rip my heart out on my own
10000 beautiful angles

I love the record you picked out
I love the words that you sang out loud
I love the texture of soft sounds
Loved it when your voice came down
And when I opened the window
I saw that I was alone
And the beautiful day shown
1000 blossoming halos

Look the leaves are turning gold
They say one day the world will grow cold
But our song is eternal
This day can't be bought and this day can't be sold
I dance with my own shadow
So content be unknown
I rip my heart out on my own
10000 beautiful angles
Track Name: Grand Canyon
Just a bit of betrayal
But mostly misunderstanding
And So the War comes upon us
And we both leave empty handed
Its been a thousand years now
Since I kissed those lips
Cuz things tend to break down
So we put up our fists

Theres a Grand Canyon
Inside my chest now

How do you say you're sorry
With bodies lying on the beach now
You trade me in for a feeling
And it is hard to believe how
I'm just bundle of wounds girl
And so I cut you back
And all the space that was love
Has now turned to black

Theres a Grand Canyon
Inside my chest now

We try to pretend we never wanted what we did but we did babe
It seems there's more incentive now to leave than we had to stay so
All of my love and hate get so mixed up since you went away
Look homeward angel please teach us how to say that it's okay
OKAY


Theres a Grand Canyon
Inside my chest now
Goodbye Companion
It's laid to rest now
Track Name: In A Heartbeat
Can you try to recall the sound
The way my whisper sounded then
And how you reached for it
Can you recall the feeling when we danced in step
We never said a word
How can I ever tell you now
All that I want to say
No you never see me

But if you were to ask me to,
You know I would
In a heartbeat

Your smile came bright and it woke me up
The winter hovered outside the house
I want to touch your mouth
Cause I never did it
When the house was cold
I didn't want to go
I cooked dinner and made the bed
And then you shook your head
And you never said it

But if you were to ask me to
You know I would
In a Heartbeat
Track Name: A New Language
Radio fly out my mouth
I gotta get out of this // Yeah I gotta get out of this
I want to get raptured somehow
But I gotta get out of this // Yeah I gotta get out of this

Templeton I've read all your books
I gotta get out of this // Yeah I gotta get out of this
Carefully remove all these hooks
I gotta get out of this // Yeah I gotta get out of this

And move out to Denver // till I miss the south
Oh cicada rhythm // my name in your mouth
I'll climb up a mountain // just to watch the sky burn
And I'll let all these tears change // into lessons learned
I'll stop hiding monsters up under my bed // babe, I've been so destructive
With these words that I've said // so I'll learn a new language
And I'll sing a new song // something so happy we forget all thats wrong

Flowers only grow where it rains
I gotta get out of this // Yeah I gotta get out of this
Until love only remains
I gotta get out of this // Yeah I gotta get out of this

And move out to Denver // till I miss the south
Oh cicada rhythm // my name in your mouth
so I'll learn a new language
And I'll sing a new song // something so happy we forget all thats wrong

Like the color of courage // like falling in love
Like the smell of your perfume // when a wink was enough

Like a well written poem // like a talk with your friend
Or a sermon that melts you // girl His love never ends

Like those memories you cherish // or going back to your town
Or how the spring always // makes it's way back around

Like a beautiful story // like a tune that you know
Oh something so gorgeous // you let all of it show!
Track Name: Set Sail
I move from the drivers seat,
And the vehicle keeps moving
You take over take over for me,
Why am I not okay with me?

I set sail on everything else but the sea

Conversation into the mountain
You insisted that I'm okay,
We spoke about how we were raised
Filled with "should of's" and razor blades

I set sail on everything else but the sea

We rode with them up to the look out.
And we laughed at what we were doing there
We are never the people that we think we are
You are not the person that you think you are

I set sail on everything else but the sea
Track Name: 1979
You would make your living
On the stilts of yellow pine
In the daylight drinking
Summer 1979

Was it summer loving?
2 kids with twinkles in their eyes
Did you believe in magic?
Soon you'd hear your babies cry

You told us of a light in your room
Could you feel us breathing inside you
Cuz we were breathing inside you

Mother had a dream and
It changed the course our life would take
She was bussing tables
Counting change that she would make

You told us of a light in your room
Could you feel us breathing inside you
Cuz we were breathing inside you

Hold on to those photographs
You and your sister laugh
Smile as your looking back
Pink Floyd and Paul McCartney
Billy Joel and Queen
They mix with memories

You told us of a light in your room
Could you feel us breathing inside you
Cuz we were breathing inside you

Hold on to those photographs
You and your sister laugh
Smile as your looking back
Pink Floyd and Paul McCartney
Billy Joel and Queen
They mix with memories

You told us of a light in your room
Could you feel us breathing inside you
Cuz we were breathing inside you
