Track Name: Portchester (shutters)
the night is mild
i hear the wind rustle the shutters
he mutters softly in his sleep
like a child

it's not too late we could still escape this
i'm too young for promises
but not too old to believe them

i believe them all the time
believe you all the time

you're so tired it's been a long day
i know you're thinking
you've run out of things to say
i feel it in you
something you won't explain
it happened to you, and it made you change

well you know that that's just fine
oh i really don't mind

come over in an hour
pick up your shoes and jacket off the floor
and you just let me know
when you don't want to keep that secret anymore
Track Name: Albany (tall tales)
the city is cold
she won't open up her arms to me
the drugstore wine burns your tongue but you drink it anyway
and i thought i heard your voice through the thin bedroom wall
but it was just tv static
i'm still listening for you i don't know why i do
i guess it's out of habit

time moves on
and i don't know how to stop it
oh i know you're never wrong
but sometimes i just wish you'd drop it

i just wish you'd drop it

we're not children anymore
we've run out of hiding places
i close my eyes, i close the door
it doesn't matter anymore
you've found me

his voice trembles when he speaks
he doesn't want to seem weak
but i'm the one that's frail
the darkness follows him around
i barely stay above ground
living inside tall tales

but you have found me
i have found you
you have found me oh
Track Name: LA #1 (gentle friend)
i fell in love
in your corner of the city
sometimes my
jealous heart wakes up weary
but i am willing to try for you
my gentle friend

i've had enough
i want to dive in deeply
if i'm going to feel
i might as well feel completely
so i am willing to try for you
my gentle friend

i fell in love
with the changing of the seasons
and i drew these circles of barbedd wire around myself
you know we all have our reasons
but i am willing to try for you
my gentle friend

oooh
Track Name: Kansas City (whitestone bridge)
car rides back and forth
i've met all of your friends
from the driver's side he tells me how all of his past loves end
and i wonder what makes me different from any of them

'cause sometimes you still look like a stranger
and on your breath there is the scent of danger
yeah sometimes you still look like a stranger
and on your breath there is the scent of danger
but i'm still falling in love
with u

we make our way past the city
the air is thick and wet
i wonder why i haven't told you i love you yet
why haven't i told you i love you yet

cause sometimes you still look like a stranger
and on your breath there is the scent of danger
yeah sometimes you still look like a stranger
and on your breath there is the scent of danger
but i'm still falling in love
with u
Track Name: LA #2 (gentle friend) feat. Evan Marré
i fell in love
in your corner of the city
sometimes my
jealous heart wakes up weary
but i am willing to try for you
my gentle friend

i've had enough
i want to dive in deeply
if i'm going to feel
i might as well feel completely
so i am willing to try for you
my gentle friend

i fell in love
with the changing of the seasons
and i drew these circles of barbed wire around myself
you know we all have our reasons
but i am willing to try for you
my gentle friend

oooh
Track Name: Kauai (perplexing)
you are so perplexing to me
so i fill the missing chapters
of your story
the only thing worse than knowing
is not knowing

so i'll write you a book of waves
with hints and riddles from the things you say
and i'll throw it out to sea and wait for it to come back some
day

you are so perplexing to me
i'm not perfect, go ahead and sue me
i like stories so much i write my own

and i'll write you this book of waves
but it's not true so throw it away
watch it sink straight down
and we'll move on

i am so perplexing to me
you understand
