Track Name: Falling Down
It was the same tricks in the game of sorrow
while you were saying you won’t be betraying tomorrow
You left me alone to beg, to steal and I’ll borrow
The only love I could find was empty and hollow

I’m falling down

The clock on this wall keeps ticking in all this silence
while making the time to clear up my mind makes no sense
the less you know the more you need to know
while learning this from a broken piece you would show

I’m falling down
Track Name: Mandolin
My great grandmother’s mandolin is an heirloom that has been passed on
An instrument with a story of its own
And every single stroke it played, a secret, a melody of my great grandmother’s heart

What stories does it play, what life struggles, accomplishments and memories does it say?

I never knew her but I heard stories of her
Travels and hugs, lessons of life and encouragements she gave
The sound of the melody of her mandolin that cried out
It is the connection and echo that she shares with me

My great grandmother’s mandolin is an heirloom that has been passed on
An instrument with a story of its own
And every single stroke it played, a secret, a melody of my great grandmother’s heart
Track Name: Inside & Out
Don’t lay your head down in this fighting war
Make your way up and reach out for something more
Just take your best shot

Words were spoken for to make a sound
Make you learn that you were more than the talk of the town
To see what you’ll be

Just turn your love inside & out

You never knew more than what your daddy said
Never weighed out the pros and cons out in your head
You are what you are
Just take the hand you bit, it’ll help you stand
Help you move out and take your feet out from the sand
Just free your way out

Just turn your love inside & out
Track Name: Summer Camp
Living life was a fairytale I never read
It just went over my head, all those things I never knew
I should have went to the doctor when I was supposed to
Instead I went to summer camp and sang songs about falling in love with you

Awoken from dreamland once again
I never wanted to leave if it meant seeing your face again
And all those things we never said, I’d whisper them to you while I sing you to sleep
Track Name: Races
I don’t have to tell if you want to know
I’ll just ramble the words, swim that wondrous flow
Maybe we will learn, maybe we will never let it show

I don’t have to go if you want me to stay
We can let time pass by hoping things will stay the same
But it will always change us from young and free to bitter old slaves

Someday we will know of what’s to come
Someday we will shine under the sun
The races we run

We will sing it once, we will play it twice
Our hearts and our souls, we will pay the price
Don’t ask me to give in and I won’t ask of you to lead the fight

Someday we will know of what’s to come
Someday we will shine under the sun
The races we run
Track Name: Never Look Back
Time after time, you’ve always been told how to turn your past grime into future gold
Don’t let them tear your walls down to your bones
They’ll burn out your light and turn your heart into stone and never look back

Tongue-tied and twisted, there’s nothing left to say
Lost little words that you hoped would help find your way
You make your mistakes yet can’t bear to learn
The life that you made left you wanting to let it burn

Cuz there’s no time, no time to waste
The sooner you rise, the sooner you fall from grace

I’ve been something and I’ve been nothing at all
Track Name: By Sunset Mirrors
I won’t deny anymore and I’ll sling those lies out the door
And you will realize you weren’t meant to know
Having made my mind, I’m not on yours

I’ll hold tight to this branch
Clinging with those blistered hands
Just to make your moment one less shady corner, on less shady dealer

Make your aim known, make your mind known, make your way home
Track Name: Stepping Stones
She’s got a long way to fall
I’ve been told, I’ve been told many things before
We all, we all go in blind
Many times, many times I’ve seen the truth

Well I’ve been stumbling down in the valley
Walking down that road again (so long now, I’ve been running)
Well I keep strolling place to place
I keep waiting, I keep waiting for the day (so long now, I’m in London)

She’s got a long way to run
Living life, life not meant for the sun
Although, although one side of the coin flipped a choice we all knew

Well I’ve been stumbling down in the valley
Walking down that road again (so long now, I’ve been running)
Well I keep strolling place to place
I keep waiting, I keep waiting for the day (so long now, I’m in London)

I keep waiting for the day
Track Name: Walls
Breathe in, Breathe out
Smile when in doubt
No signs show us how
How and why they come about

And we’re left climbing the walls
Lost deep in our minds
Walking down those empty halls
Stuck in the light that blinds

Fall in, fall out
We’ll rise when in doubt
Teaching ourselves to fly
Whispers changing into shouts

And we’re left climbing the walls
Lost deep in our minds
Walking down those empty halls
Stuck in the light that blinds

Some will win, some will lose
God knows which we’ll choose

And we’re left climbing the walls
Lost deep in our minds
Walking down those empty halls
Stuck in the light that blinds
Track Name: Rope & Chain
I lead out on the road
I’m all alone
I’m already going down

There’s a long drive
To that home of mine
I’m already going up

There’s no way out when you’re all out there

When old ways win
will we only lose?
An open doorway out

Tread over land
Breathe out and stand
In all those lines we draw

There’s no way out when you’re all out there

I broke your rope & chain yet here I remain

There’s no way out when you’re all out there
Track Name: Swing, Swing
Swing, swing low all through the night
Dance with me now til’ dawn’s first light

Take my hand and shuffle sweetly
On these floors grazed by our feet
Track Name: Heavenly Rows
Heaven opened up a gate of tears
I’ve been rowing, i’m still rowing
There’s nothing left of all that was here
It’s not showing, it’s not showing

Heaven only takes those we hold dear
I’ve been knowing there’s no knowing
A place that we once wasted all those years
And I’m going, yes i’m going

The face that we look up into the mirror
And it’s glowing, and it’s glowing
The winds that caused stir ups on the pier
And it’s blowing
It won’t stop blowing
