Track Name: Trees & Windows
if i close my eyes
i can see the sunlight filtered through the trees
and you in the door
i don't need more

here with you, i've found rest
a quiet place to lay my head
only our own
no one else knows

let's begin, and never end
the surest thing, a carrick bend
Track Name: Alaska
you, you and i
bide our time with dreaming
of alaska
of a place that
feels how we feel
calm that brings healing
close our tired eyes
close our open wounds

and i know that
yeah, i know that
we'll find it
cause it's all i want

stay, stay a while
don't say that you're leaving
it's eleven
and the night is young
let's steal a car
drive 'til we hit juneau
change our names and
live a quiet life

and i know that
yeah, i know that
we'll find it
cause it's all i want
Track Name: No Compass
so long, so long
to the sense of purpose i
used to feel in my life
so wrong, so wrong
what i once had figured out,
choked on all my doubt

i found my bones
cast out of my skin
running like the wind
to find a home
a place to rearrange
the mess that's in my brain

i've got no compass, but i've got you
and so long as that is true
i will never be lost

so i give way
and let the violent tide
throw me all around
but i know, i know
with you right by my side
things will just fine

i've got no compass, but i've got you
and so long as that is true
I will never be lost
Track Name: DNR
a break in the line
a fuck up, yeah
a new fault of mine
i find one everyday
i can't find the words
it's bad and it's
just getting worse
i never know what to say

maybe i'll just give up
i'm too tired to give half a fuck
if you find me face down somewhere
please don't bother to pick me up
this is my DNR
my white flag

i'd made up my mind
that i would just
waste all my time
feeling sorry for myself
but you picked me up
breathed new air
into my lungs
and i changed my mind

i won't go giving up
won't grow old just gathering dust
i've a long ways to go 'fore i'm done
i won't walk when i know i can run
i'm throwing my DNR
away
Track Name: Winter
i spent a lot of time
in my head, alone
with my dissonant thoughts
the loudest noise i've heard

it was winter and i was losing the war
there was blood on my hands while i slept in the snow
in the woods at midnight

but i don't live in the past anymore
and i don't care to go back
i'm alright where i ended up
i'm alright where i am
Track Name: Idyll
i remember how the sunlight hit your hair
on the day i met you, well it just wasn't fair
i couldn't keep myself from staring at you
but what else was i supposed to do
the summer found us climbing rooftops
and staring at the stars in fields out by the park
and i'd think as you were next to me,
"this is where i need to be"

i keep the sunlight on my mind
i wanna see you smile all the time
cause that's my paradise

the seasons wither, and knots give way with time
and rosaries don't make a better man
but i found a way to finally be
better, at the very least

i keep the sunlight on my mind
i wanna see you smile all the time
cause that's my paradise
yeah, that's my paradise
Track Name: Red (Alaska Version)
i have been waiting to see your face
for quite some time
everyone's fading to shades of gray
you are the last color alive
my eyes
have tried
to find
you here
my dear
a contrast so unlike
the shades
that bore
my tired eyes

i know, i know everybody probably writes you love songs
i know, i know everybody probably writes you love songs
cause in a world full of gray, you're vivid color

you run this steady course
in the space behind my eyes
my heart just aches for more
won't you please come inside
my lines
and paint
my life
the colors of
your lovely eyes

i know, i know everybody probably writes you love songs
i know, i know everybody probably writes you love songs
