Track Name: Give It Up
Give me a break, I think that if I don't get one
that I just might
And I'm falling out of love with my dreams,
they're falling out of line
With the way things appeared,
it made sense for me to think we'd be alright
But there's little, little truth to be found
when you're living a lie
I'm not saying I'm any better
at all of this than you are, but together
We never did get too far

And I'll keep running away, from everyone that's holding me back
The next time I fall I'll try to laugh and cheer myself up onto my feet
Because I'm sure that they want nothing more
than to know they're getting to me
But they're not getting to me

It's been a long time since I've felt out of my mind like this
I think it's safe to say that not much has changed out here
I still listen to the streetlights' nostalgic undertones
We used to sing to them when we were broken
and no one would listen
Now I'm broken and my heart is feeling tired
Of watching my friends destroy themselves
I'm broken and worn out from giving all I have to try to help
I know it takes more than a little charity
you need a little clarity to change a life
But you have to believe you cannot see
before you'll open up your eyes
You were my best friends, before all of this
You were my best friends, I guess you must have forgotten.

And I'll keep running away, from everyone that's holding me back
The next time I fall I'll try to laugh and cheer myself up onto my feet
Because I'm sure that they want nothing more
than to know they're getting to me
But they're not getting to me
Track Name: What We Use As Stepping Stones
All I can say is that my empty heart doesn't know its way around
my empty head.
But I'm learning how to change.
This time won't be the same as every other time.
I tried my best when my word was worthless.
I know I'm not alone, and you're not alone.
Our bodies are weak
but our hearts are strong enough to build our homes.
Track Name: Je Veux Le Soleil
Oh how I long to be like the trees
Strong enough and tall enough to see over everything in front of me
Roots so deep
Never questioning my ability to face the wind and win, what a dream
But when I'm crashing like the sea
And on the rocks I stay
Can't find the strength between the waves to stand
I'll dig my knees into the sand
and scream that I am stronger than the world
This is just a waiting game that I have played before

Between each gasping breath that I take to keep my head
I open up my eyes and discover that while I was asleep
the sun came up

We're living for a hope that we know can be found
In every heart and every seed that's planted in the ground
And one day life will grow and come to know the truth
and the reasons we still continue to fall anyway

Between each gasping breath that I take to keep my head
I open up my eyes and discover that while I was asleep
the sun came up
Track Name: Learning Trust
For years all I wanted was a box to call my own
A place where I'd exist and think
And I could believe in anything I wanted to
But now that I have it cupped inside my hands
It seems the accommodations are more scarce than I had planned
Because only I fit in to my plans
Only I fit in
Now I feel more alone than I have ever been

So how do I tap into the hope
I know is in me when my heart is emptying all of the words
that I've been feeling
Remind me how it hurts
To feel like I've been doing nothing with my life
And even though I'm trying
Small accomplishments don't seem to mean enough

When my heart is in my stomach and my stomach is underfoot
I know I need to get over this
I can't spend the rest of my life writing poems about being sick
God knows our problems aren't easily fixed
But within our reach is medicine
It's up to us to taste and see it
We were not meant to exist like this

I'm not happy where I am
But I don't know where to go
I concentrate on everything
That makes me feel alone
I'm losing faith in conversation
I'm losing purpose for my plans

Open up and let go
