SBSF 03:03
When we were fearless Charms against the world Heart like a furnace Moon shining like a pearl Just an honest mess Stepping off the cliff together Oooo, in the shade of another year I wonder where the hours went So bright so few So many ways to burn out So much fades to blue I wonder where the hours went So bright so few And then you just lay down And let the waves take you Is there a dark horse Somewhere in this hymn How do we sing it Ain’t nothing like a dream But this is where we leave it Out with the fallen leaves forever Ooooo, in the shade of another year I wonder where the hours went So bright so few So many ways to burn out So much fades to blue I wonder where the hours went So bright so few And then you just lay down And let the waves take you

Spent your life pushing forward Looking back Spinning on the table with your hair pulled up Staggering like a real princess Where’s your hashtag Feeling like a vision till you fall down flat Seems impossible But that’s the only road Tell me otherwise what do we long for Dear lord Ain't nothing like the real world Now dare we take a run for it And see where we end up Seems impossible But that’s the only road Tell me otherwise what do we long for Left our home in the cool of night Everything right in the world Just the two old souls and the end of times Everything else has to burn Show me more, show me more

Pennies 03:33
When the fire won't listen I’m reaching for the wind for now Telling myself it's the long game God only knows the way out Seeing all you women Bless you all the same But it takes just one for the heart come Out in the light of day We might have chance Honey, we might have a chance in hell Couldn’t tell you how I dreamed this up Just watching you walk across the bar now We might have chance Honey we might have a chance in hell Couldn't tell you what it looks like at all Just throwing that penny down the dark well If your eyes are killers and the past is near to die Yes I came down south to never wonder And let these demons lie We might have chance Honey we might have a chance in hell Couldn't tell you what it looks like at all Just throwing that penny down the dark well

The Rules 03:23
Heaven help us We’re a mess Lawless And I remember First time I saw the look Oh my god I hardly knew ya then Looking at the town bewildered All the hearts All the numbers Moving through the day without a damn care But I hardly knew you then Who breaks the rules like us Who gets through this part untouched Who breaks the rules like us Not many babe, not many babe
5.
Revel Revel 03:52
Who am I, twilight Feeling like an all-nighter What a fool, what a world What have not had time for Now can I stand idle With the hours gracefully Staring into the sea Longing for nothing Didn’t I want it bad enough Maybe I wasn’t scared enough With another day You’ll be hiding from the last In the brilliant haze of your beautiful youth

There’s a hurricane in the Carolinas Otherwise, never safer Bless our hearts we’ve skipped a page Making me feel like a little kid Don’t you want to live, like a million years Stealing all the biggest dreams Don't you want to live Well I’m guessing I do All this rain and the well is dry All this rain, this wind, these highs All this rain and the well is dry Put the body down for the evening Don't you want to live Well I’m guessing I do It’s like a rodeo in the dark of night Now show me all the wonder when I’m dry Don’t you want to feel like a little kid Don’t you want to live, like a million years Standing in the biggest dreams Don't you want to live Well I’m guessing I do All this rain and the well is dry All this rain, this wind, these highs All this rain and the well is dry Put your body down for the evening Don't you want to live All this rain and the well is dry Don't you want to live Well I’m guessing I do

Moon Phase 03:03
Tell me, tell me darling Is it just a phase somehow Or will I never know your warmth again On the dark side now Always chasing something Never meant to get in your way But even when the fog from the fighting lifts I’ll be yours to blame Even when the fog from the fighting lifts I’ll be yours to blame Who was winning Was that in the vows Taking the tally the whole way down But even when the strike from the gavel sounds I’ll be yours to blame Tell me, tell me darling Is it just a phase somehow Or will I never know your warmth again On the dark side now Will I never know your warmth again On the dark side now

The Party 03:30
She was that dark and stormy At the age of twenty three So we’d had no conversation of which to speak ‘Till the moon rose up on the party And we skittered out to the trees Just two lonely strangers, struggling Not even I could reach deeper than my throat You could not even know the fables and the hopes But I think we both know if we get back to the road There goes another path There goes another soul Thought I was made for this For just a moment like this But I just lost the focus And though your eyes were wide open I only see all that been I only see all that’s left I only see all the demons

Can U Beleeb 02:20
Feels like I'm traipsing into the void Questioning my worth, holding back the joy Seems Love is not the pinnacle anymore Just an obstacle to avoid Can you believe it's been twelve long years And with matters of the heart feels even longer still Now you’re the shape that I’ve been molded to But who am I and who are you It’s going to be just like it always was, no nothing new It’s going to be just like it was when we were perfect and all confused It’s going to be just like the worst of days we ever knew It's going to be just a gentle breeze Feel like a hurricane What can I even say Where would I be without you Feels like I'm traipsing into the void Questioning my worth, holding back the joy Now you’re the shape that I’ve been molded to But who am I and who are you

Treasure 01:59
Where in your soul, darling Are you occupied Watch the clouds tonight What keeps the birds in flight What sets your eyes alight Treasure, Treasure, Treasure Treasure this Is it in the mind? Is it in the wild land? But no one ever seems to keep it in their hands And nothing stops the sands
11.
Too much time on our hands No one walks into death The light just comes unattached Ticket in hand Put my feet in the dirt The red-cracked clay of the south I think it’s how this game plays out I’m split down the middle To burn or fade with grace We come made for this That sweet dissonance Nothing paves the road for us My sweet dogs will die your sweet eyes will dry The cancer comes like a train in the night

Every Life 03:03
I had the clearest mind Day or night But nothing lasts forever Is this every life? And just a wistful babe Chasing light But nothing fades the leather Like being told what’s right Just tell me something of worth Or show me in this world Feels like I’m dreaming in hours now Not the free man in the hills Amongst the heather With the full moon On my shoulders I swear I had the clearest mind Day or night But nothing lasts forever Is this every life? No nothing paints the pictures Like being bathed in morning light I swear I had the clearest mind Day or night But nothing lasts forever Is this every life? No nothing paints the pictures Like being bathed in morning light Like staring into open sky With eyes like wings Tell me, is this every life?
