Track Name: Avalanche
I was a young dumb kid who liked to hit the bottle
I was all wrapped up in living for tomorrow
couldn't wait one day I'd make it out of town

You were a cute shy girl in one of my classes
used to joke around till you ditched them glasses
I remember now I couldn't help myself

But as time got older you went off and married
in a twist of fate it's the luggage I carried I put on myself
you're all I thought about

Because you're a dream worth having in the night
the thought of you it burns so badly
must've been all the trouble that you put me through

When you come you're surrounded by the light
take me out like a rogue wave breaking
on my door when you threw it all against the wall

I spent too much time feeling sorry in a far off land
I let my fingertips carry what I told you then
I'm glad you wrote me back

You were doing fine things were complicated
crooked lines running straight to your heart
I couldn't make them bend but I was following

And when I touched your face the high was scary
I felt so alive in an avalanche buried on the other side
you let it slip away

But you're a dream worth having in the night
the thought of you it burns so badly
must've been all the trouble that you put me through

When you come you're surrounded by the light
take me out like a rogue wave breaking
on my door when you threw it all against the wall
Track Name: Plume
Take me home where the water's warm
and the skies are never grey
On this battlefield where the lines are drawn
the path is never straight

The trumpets call in the neon dawn for our bodies to awake
Love of mine would you be so kind and shelter me the same
Running from the fall we're hesitant draw cause we gambled all the way
So we howl at the moon with particular plume to insist our hearts will stay

Take me home where the signs are off
and the nights fade into black
I'll pretend your mine as you drive me home
cause I'm never looking back

The trumpets call in the neon dawn for our bodies to awake
Love of mine would you be so kind and shelter me the same
Running from the fall we're hesitant draw cause we gambled all the way
So we howl at the moon with particular plume to insist our hearts will stay

We howl at the moon...
Track Name: Lifeline
the snow rose quickly in the dark
covered by another lover's waiting arms
my oh my where have you been
freezing under covers till the heat kicks in

buried underneath them midnight stars
carried our lifeline like a scar
done up on the ice but it was wearing so thin
frozen on your lips as i was leaning in

baring our chest we broke the seal
barricade the damage from the hearts we wield
why oh why do we disguise
the features that our weaker that hold inside

buried underneath them midnight stars
carried our lifeline like a scar
done up on the ice but it was wearing so thin
frozen on your lips as i was leaning in
Track Name: By the Moonlight
A cardinal flies across my lawn
puffs his feathers for a moment then he's gone
Only thunder makes him stay
maybe someone feels the same

But me
I'm fine
I drink by the moonlight

The doves a choir in my song
mourning something that they never knew was gone
I'll find you in the milky way
I'll raise my cup then just the same

And we'll
Be fine
We drink by the moonlight
Track Name: Lullaby
Go to sleep little one
If the fires arise at dawn
If you're a thousand miles away
If your money's almost gone

If you followed the river to the pond
If you drank from the bottle to be strong
If you followed the river to the pond
If I miss you

Spread your wings little one
if you feel the need to fly
If you're handing all your love to those beggars in disguise

If you buried all your secrets in the dark
If you're begging for the middle or the start
If you buried all your secrets in the dark
If I miss you

Since you followed the river to the pond
Since you drank from the bottle to be strong
Since you buried all your secrets in the dark
Well I miss you...
