Track Name: Wish I Could Sleep...
Sometimes I don't feel like the me I know
I'm trying to keep some sense of self control
But as soon as I know it I leave it behind
And I still don't know what I'm expecting to find

Baby I don't know what to do
Sometimes I catch myself thinking about you
And every love is another wound, but
Baby I want you to be my bruise

So maybe it is
Or maybe it was
Or maybe it's something totally new
We have our words in place of the truth

There's a billion ways you could say this whole thing works
Talk all I want cause opinions are cheap as dirt
And every kiss, every chance to touch the divine
Dunno what it's worth but I'm saving up every dime

So maybe it is
Or maybe it was
Or maybe it's something totally new
We have our words in place of the truth

We're always oblivious to the truth

Baby I don't know what to do
Sometimes I catch myself thinking about you
Track Name: Young Love and the Drifter
I rode out to a country town
I rode far from the city, found a place to sit down
It was a bench that was overgrown
There was no one there, sometimes I like to be alone

I try every day to be a little more kind
Maybe I could love you with a little more time

But for now I gotta keep moving on
I gotta figure out who I am by writing these songs
Gotta let myself know what I'm all about

Gotta know why I whimper and why I shout
Can't count all the times how desperately I wanted out
I try every day to be a little more kind
Maybe I could love you with a little more time

It's strange that now it comes to me
Through every rosy memory
The time she was a half of me
I think it may have been too much
I needed her; she was my crutch
She was my charm, she was my luck
Relied on her to hold me up
I think I really lost myself
Yeah, I really lost myself
I never really found myself
And to this day I wonder was it love?

But for now I gotta keep moving on
I gotta figure out who I am by writing these songs
Gotta let myself know what I'm all about
Gotta know why I whimper and why I shout

Well I want out
Track Name: Is There Anything You'd Rather Be Doing?
Oh, well it's your last day
And you're looking for some closure to the end of your stay
But the sun is setting now
And the time you had slipped away somehow

And it never did seem fair
Wanna go but don't know where
Got some idea of some excitement
Some conclusion, some satisfaction
Some way to make it all make sense

All we get are loose ends
Start something, end it, going nowhere again
Feels like there's something,
Some final goal, some ultimate purpose
Some way to make it all connect

She lights another cigarette
Says another won't hurt, it hasn't killed me yet
She's looking out watching red sunset
It's a dead sort of feeling, not happy and not upset

Oh, well it's your last day
And you're looking for some closure to the end of your stay
Well here's the question no one likes to address:
Where are we going with this whole damn mess?
Convinced ourselves that there's something it means
There must be somewhere it's all gonna lead
Right?

I wanna be a part of something, something meaningful
I wanna be a part of something, something beautiful

And it never did seem fair
Wanna go but don't know where
Got some idea of some excitement
Some conclusion, some satisfaction
Some way to make it all make sense

Well I don't have the answer
I just live along the best that I can
And no one has the answer
We all just tell ourselves the best that we can

I wanna be a part of something, something deliberate
I wanna be a part of something, something infinite
Track Name: I Had Been in a Desert
I never thought a moment could be enjoyed for so long
But sometimes it's pleasant to be totally wrong
And I know it must end with a bang or a hiss
My hands on your hips
Life is hide and seek happiness

We soak it up while we can
We soak it up while we can

I remember your face on that bright afternoon
We hurried outside cause your mom was coming home soon
And I remember you said
"When I'm too old to run,
I hope I still see you as you appear in the sun"

Well we soak it up while we can
We soak it up while we can

I think it was December when I first fell in love
The world was a puzzle that was easy to solve
Cause she was all of the pieces
And her presence was a reservoir
And I'd been in the desert for as long as I care to remember

We soak it up while we can
We soak it up while we can
We soak it up while we can
We soak it up while we can
Track Name: Empathetic Sighs
I wanna meet some strangers but I'm usually too shy
I wanna hear their stories and make empathetic sighs
I often wonder why it is so hard for me to see
That there is nothing there to fear and there is always love in need

It always seems insane to me that no one really knows
Nothing about anything and where our conscious goes
I often get confused and it all seems like a lot
But I found most things simply are
And I feel often I am not
