Track Name: Holding Heart
all this self-reflection will get me down
on an easier day i'm not even around at all so
play it like you play my favorite song
til i'm sick of it but healed in such a new way
play it slowly

holding heart was never part of the plan
i can't even pretend

so pull apart the picture and make it talk
such a privileged piece of lonely naivety
so dark behind our eyes you'd think we're blind
but you know that i reach and strain to bring the light in
just slow this time

holding heart was never part of the plan
i can't even relax
holding heart was never part of the plan
i can't even pretend no
Track Name: happysad3
waking up is hardly like it used to be
and free from apologies
tender for prescription prose my body holds
i'll keep every word you leave
i'm an easy man to please give me bruises on my side
let our simple little minds collide

causality's rich with all the darker hours
good havens are hard to find
i'll forget yr past if you would cover mine
yr smile is my books on fire
i'm an easy man to please give me bruises on my side
let our simple little worlds collide
some of us shine casually yeah some of us shine bright
some of us are perfect for the night
Track Name: For Dandy
everyone i touch i fall for
then every word i speak becomes a lie
i'm getting in too deep my heart is taking over me
and there's no reason to believe that i'll survive

now i believe temptation is a good thing
and i believe in feeding all we feel
we're taking a fall but it's a beautiful depth
and that beauty will be there to stay

i need someone who'll never fall
i need someone to worship all night
one to stop the losing mind
to take my bones and hold them up right
one to bring the peace and the light

i believe that fate will have its way
and i believe it could happen today
and you could be my one
my truly great thing
but i'm the one to make one more mistake
Track Name: Light or Shadow
hospital flowers dirtier dreams in my bed
it's not the light or the shadow
wishes well wishing less
so pull it together

fire kills sound and fading
find a friend now for passion
it's not the ghosts that hurt the most
it's the way they took my prayers and ran
so pull it together
pull it together now kid

fire kills sound. dirty yr dreams in my head
i'm not the light or the shadow
wishes well wishing less less less
Track Name: My Favorite Dream
i don't need this drug like a blanket
i don't want that warm warm handshake
i don't need to feel like a lost soul. i'm not.

i remember how it feels to wear thin
if i were made of paper i would fold in
my heart would collapse and i would be back
where i started
