Track Name: Drivin'
the last time i was alone with you
we could have tried harder to stay together
the city looked better
at night with a little rain, or a film crew faking the weather

maybe ive been living in the daylight a little too long
maybe ive been growing blind to the shadows
you got that terminal sadness but you never let on
i coulda carried you along if you'd asked me

i coulda gone driving in the middle of the night
just you and me driving in the middle of the night
i coulda gone driving just you and me driving

we find more jagged edges every time
we keep trying to be some brighter kind of light
gluing each others broken bodies
gluing each others broken bodies back together
in the light we make, faking the weather

so let me carry off a little darkness from my friends
so they can start living in the daylight again
its alright, its alright, its alright, its alright
let me be the one to go driving in the middle of the night

i coulda gone driving in the middle of the night
i coulda gone driving in the middle of the night
just you and me driving in the middle of the night
i coulda gone driving
Track Name: Heavy Blue
Disappearing in a forest that you couldn't see
the breeze that came between us, and tore us quietly
real love meant suffering, not just strolling thru the park
i tried to carry you to the brighter side, but you kept it in the dark

the swift sunlit descent that leaves the treetops barely lit
on our backs in the grass just trying to stay in love
the emptying park, path dark, shadows shuffle home
in heavy blue, beneath heavy clouds, together we're alone

heavy blue hanging down
till the morning comes around
you could have comforted me, but i'm running free
beneath big clouds beneath big clouds

you projected me on a wall, in your pop-up open house
in a show with a television fireplace, and a picture of yourself
i didn't know how to respond, kept getting on planes and writing songs
for friends, for falling in love with, for falling in mud, stayin above it

we were just kids pretending broken, till the day we really cracked
just kids that the breeze tore open, and our conscience cant attach
i knew i could've comforted you, could've carried you home myself
i could've comforted you heavy blue, beneath big clouds

heavy blue hanging down
till the morning comes around

let me sleep on your floor, let me just be around you, let me try and understand how
how i loved you then, it just came tumbling in, i love you more than ever now
the city wind is cold and comforting, cold always feels so young
always in love with the love i had, i know i'm not the only one

yesterday i saw a man in a film a snowstorm swirling around him standing still
yesterday i dreamed the drought was over, the concrete river had broken open
and i ran alongside it with my hands in the air, screaming all the way to the ocean

heavy blue hanging down
till the morning comes around
i could have comforted you if you had wanted me to
you could have comforted me, but im running free
beneath big clouds beneath big clouds
Track Name: On The Edge of The Continent
You could smell joy in the air
when you were here when you were here
it was flying down the aisle like a wild wild seraphic child

theres a sensitive and sweet uninhibited piece of you
that wells up when you leave and carries you away

and the silence that descends is blanket or a balm to me
like sunlight through the lense of a rainstorm of a friend
of a brother of a rainstorm of a friend
of a brother of a rainstorm of a friend of a

on the edge of the continent you left
content to be lost to wail to tell the truth
on the edge of your youth

i remember you in fog, i remember taking off
do you miss the ones you love
like a suitcase that gets lost
that kinda grief is not enough
just a momentary thought
im abandoning my love, my youth my love my youth my love
on a freeway

on the edge of the continent you left
content to be lost to wail to tell the truth
on the edge of your youth

(on edge) (on edge)

(do you miss the ones you love
just a momentary thought)
