Track Name: Ariana
I can barely stand your presence
Get wrapped up by your innocence
I must confess, without regrets
I lose myself when we're together

Ariana

And you came shooting through my world
Reduced me to a little child
I must confess, without restraint
I won't believe this gets much better

I can't say that this won't end
I'll take that chance, won't second guess

Ariana
Track Name: Half Your World
Half your world is hidden from my eyes
I’ve never asked you why you won’t show me
Half your world is colored like a child’s
Soft beneath the light but you won’t hold me

It’s a long way down, so let it out and tell me something
It’s a long way down to fight
It’s a long way down, so let it out cause I need something
It’s a long way down to hide

Half your world, as haunted as this night
Spiraling in a silence so controlling
Half your world the better two can find
Caught beneath the lines that you once showed me

We’re calling out from where we arose to light
Seems closer to our eyes
We’re learning now, finding out that we both share something
Still a long way out from quiet

Half your world is hidden from my eyes
I’ve never asked you why you won’t show me
Half your world the better two can find
Caught beneath the lines, but you won't hold me
Track Name: Stranded
Once in a while, a twilight of heaven appears
Rain in the sky, oceans, rivers, and streams
But I've never stayed there too long
Afraid to find out I'd want more

Stranded, nothing's better than you

Stayed for a time, away from the memories I'd seen
Never crossed those sames lines or give up my self for the chance
Sometimes, I swear it hurt more
I wished I had drowned in these waters

I never asked for anything but proof
I couldn't ask for anything so true

Stranded, nothing's better than you
Track Name: Silver Chain
Hold a picture of you in my hand, looks like something you're not
Painted smile on your face, shaded to reveal all your thoughts
Beneath a graying sky, between your aging lines
There's a memory frayed, cannot save all the lessons you brought

Silver chain
What is lost, what remains, what can never be strong again

It's hard to open your eyes when you're scared of what the day may bring
Lying quiet on your side, you can't deny that there's something missing
Where an angel shined is just a fading light
If it's harder to say, I'll find it harder when you say goodbye

Took a landslide to open up our eyes
Took a long night of tears
Took a long time to find you in my arms
Took a long night of tears
Track Name: Late Marie
Even if we never meet again, then your smile I won't forget
How you wore your faded dress, how you told your lies so well
If we only walk as friends, then your touch I won't resist
And I won't hear your complaints, and you won't hear my regrets

Late Marie, when did life become obscene
While we were rolling on the floor alone,
Passion swept away our dreams
Late Marie, we're just two more lives in need
Of a sunrise that's few and far between
While the night comes on, it's too late Marie

If we never meet again, then your tongue I will resent
How it washed away my tears while it stole away my kiss
And when I think what could have been, my heart is never blessed
I hear an echo in my past, you were better than all the rest

Remember opening your arms
To let my warmth come deep inside
We would sweat through our embrace
And our laughter would stir the oceans
Track Name: Falling Further Behind
Turn the lamp down to let moonlight seep through this window
There's a million stars in the sky, still this bed lies so alone
Love is sacrifice, and I can't find the time
The closer I come to you, the further I am falling behind

Still watching the clock spin in a constant, quiet searching
Whoever thought these blessings would hold such a curse
Though I treasure each moment, it's getting harder to deny
The closer I come to you, the further I am falling behind

Wish I could hold you while streets are sleeping
Two passionate bodies moving, drenched and entwined
Whispering softly, too soon for dreaming
We'd wake in the morning to rise, but fall further behind

Sit up in bed to strike myself a cigarette
There's a cold autumn wind and a throat that begs for thirst
Room starts its spinning, your voice keeps the time
The closer it comes to me, the further I am falling behind
Track Name: Frayed
I can't hold onto anything
With both my hands shaking
Thread of hope stretched taught, nylon trust just thinning
And all my dreams are frayed

A tightrope walk across loose ends
A spinning of the ages
An old coat worn by coarse new threads
When all my dreams are frayed

Sometimes it feels like I'm coming apart
Sometimes it feels like I'm breaking
I can't reach down far enough
When all my dreams are frayed

A shipyard dawn, a smokestack crash
The mirror shows the aging
frail mercy hangs around to beg
When all my dreams are frayed

Sometimes it feels like I'm caught in a knot
Sometimes I fear I won't break it
I can't reach down, draw a spark
When all my dreams are frayed

I can't hold onto anything
With both my hands shaking
Thread of hope stretched taught, nylon trust just thins
And all my dreams are frayed
Track Name: Still Hearts
A thousand moons and eternity wouldn't be enough for you
And all the strength that I pretend was barely built on ruin
A starlight, just like promise, for a moment then descent
The dim light that we shared was gone forever

Still hearts divide, still heart was mine

The iris of this city, and the poison it contained
Drew me further into everything, where I never should have been
The secrets that I held were like the moaning of a train
I couldn't stop the speed so I derailed

Still hearts divide, still heart was mine
Track Name: Low Light
Tears don't fill your eyes
But this house can't hide desire
You're distant as a satellite
Shallow as a headline
Your silence sounds a warning that speaks loud

Your love is a low light that's burning down

If time ticked colored hands
Then I'm past black on black
So go ahead and say goodbye
A word you use just like a knife
I promise I will bleed until you drown

Your love is a low light that's burning down
Track Name: Last in Love
Last in love is what I am
Dark cloud seems to hang over all of my plans
No brilliant story, no bright star
No one to come home to, no one to depart

Anything's better than nothing
Anything's better than none

Last in love, where I've been
In need of a warm coat, in need of a friend
Through this dark, endless street
Through all of my searches and all of my years

Anything's better than nothing
Anything's better than none

Last in love, where I'll stay
Dark cloud will unfold over all of my days
Through this tired, endless street
Through all of my searches and all of my years
Track Name: Trouble
Trouble, where'd we go wrong
Trouble, where'd we go wrong
Did we want too much
Was our reach too broad
Once we had a touch
Why'd we let it go
Trouble, where'd we go wrong

Trouble, stay away from me
Trouble, won't you let me be
Are we as tragic
As we were bold
Did we have a chance
I guess we'll never know
Trouble, stay away from me

Trouble, where'd we go wrong
