Track Name: Can't Stay Here
Light at night put some records on, never heard them before
Pushed the chairs back, lay down, threw the sleeves on the floor
When you’ve waded out this far, your feet they often slip
Makes it so hard day to day, hard to find your grip

Oh, you don’t have to convince me
Oh, I’m already there
But try to tell me again

Can't stay here
Can't see clear
Stuck in first gear
Got to move on

Late at night heard the street below, getting louder it seems
Calling out in an aching note, tangled up in a dream
There’s a point that I cannot pass, a no-end crossing in me
And when its all been said and done, we never cared to agree

Oh, you don’t have to convince me
Oh, I’m already there
But try to tell me again

Can't stay here
Can't see clear
Stuck in first gear
Got to move on
Track Name: A Way Out
Look at the houses from the streets late at night, glowing with illusionary light
Familiar disguises, I’ve seen them before, a hundred times, less, or maybe more

To you it’s the way out, to me it’s just an ordinary door
To use is to play out, an endless scene I’ve seen it all before
Oh, sonorous suburban tones, buried with the bones beneath the floor

And now I see my face contort in the moonlight, I’m holding on to you for dear life
And now I hear my voice distort in the sunlight, I know its going to be a long goodbye

To you it’s the way out, to me it’s just an ordinary door
To use is to play out, an endless scene I’ve seen it all before
Oh, sonorous suburban tones, buried with the bones beneath the floor
Track Name: Love Lights
The cold night air came sliding in
Across my lips and over the words held in
It stirred deep in my head
The thoughts I’d left for dead

Because there’s nothing I can do
And is there any point carrying through?
To the end of a war forlorn

When the love light’s gone out
So far from home
And there’s a feeling you’re drifting
And you're not alone

On the road ahead there’ll be no turning back
To the way we felt, from the marks left on her back
I’ll crash before the end
And there’ll be no words to mend

Because there is nothing I can do
And is there any point carrying through?
To the end of a war forlorn

When the love lights gone out
So far from home
And there’s a feeling you’re drifting
And you're not alone

I’ve gone too far this time, I’m breaking up
In the winding currents pouring in and up
I’ll drown before I land
There’ll be no helping hand

Because there is nothing I can do
And is there any point carrying through?
To the end of a war forlorn

When the love lights gone out
So far from home
And there’s a feeling you’re drifting
And you're not alone
Track Name: Never Met
Well we’ve never met and I doubt that we will
But your call to me is so steady and shrill
If I had more words, I’d fill up the page
But my mind is empty, does it read in my gaze?

The moon was out as I rode home tonight
Lighting up everyone equally bright
When you turn to me in the quiet of my mind
It’s a pleasure I get that can’t be designed

Has it been this long?
Who’d have thought I’d play along?
Where did you learn, right from wrong?

So the screens have moved, just once more unheard
Pulling up everything and without a word
I leave the lights out sometimes when I’m home
It’s just a simple way, to stay on my own
