Track Name: Weathered Eyes
An alarm clock up to wake;
Some hardened crumbs on your breakfast plate;
Two buses and three trains;
A couple steps and an airplane;
A shade of green and grey;
Weathered eyes always threatening to rain.

I tried to read the reason
Like it's spelled on piano keys,
But I just pronounced the distance
That lies between where I am and want to be.

Your towel's still hung up,
and I drank the tea in your travel mug.
You left in such a rush,
That you left your love and your toothbrush.
And the space inside my room,
Died the second your took your soul with you.

I tried to read the reason
Like it's spelled on guitar strings,
But I just defined the difference
Between with whom I am and want to be.

I swore it would be different,
But nothing seemed to change.
You must be the reason
I learned to love this way.
You must be the reason I'm ok.

A box that reads your name;
Some makeup stains on the pillowcase;
A place that isn't home
Where I'm just trying to learn to live alone.

Track Name: I Will Follow You
I will follow you
Wherever you go—
All across the ages or the waters of the world.
I will follow you
Wherever you go—
I'll replace your shadow and I'll disregard my own.
Please take me along
Wherever you go,
So even if we leave the house, we'd never not be home.

All ahead are streams
That blur the open road into narrow streets
And guarantees.
So I can close my eyes,
And trust the burning sun is magnetized.
No, I'm not behind
If you're a few hours ahead
it would seem to me that you never left.
It's like i said...

I will follow you
Wherever you go—
All across the ages or the waters of the world.
I will follow you
Wherever you go—
I'll replace your shadow and I'll disregard my own.
Please take me along
Wherever you go,
So even if we leave the house, we'd never not be home.

I keep waving camera eyes,
'Cause pictures don't forget what beauty looks like,
Though minds will try.
So if the starts start to leave your eyes,
Then I'll refill them with overflows from mine—
So you can see through the night.
Come on, take advantage of my love!
Just return it all to the heart from which it comes
When you are done.

And I will follow you
Wherever you go—
All across the ages or the waters of the world.
I will follow you
Wherever you go—
I'll replace your shadow and I'll disregard my own.
Please take me along
Wherever you go,
So even if we leave the house, we'd never not be home.

But as if in disbelief,
Or curiosity,
You packed your suitcase and your dream,
And turned from me.

I will follow you
Wherever you go,
Even if you take me out much further than I've gone.
I will follow you
Wherever you go,
So even if you want me to I'll never be alone.
Track Name: Split the Difference
I don't own anything I'm just finding out—
All my lost control is sent back to myself,
And just as intended slows everything down,
And forcefully muffles it's sound.

I don't own anything, not even her heart.
I'm peeling back layers deriving it's arc,
But each time I finish, I'm back at the start,
And it's smaller, but won't fit in my arms.

So fill up your fountains with wine,
And recite the passage of time.
At your insistence, we'll just split the difference—
It's something that I'll have to fight.

I don't have an answer each time I am asked
About how it's going or where I've been blessed—
It's all power struggle composed into flesh.
The patience, it comes but it's last.

Now, I've made a home here and begun to believe
In love's nonexistence where we disagree,
I stood up singing like I could be free,
But I just disturbed the peace.

So fill up your fountains with wine,
And recite the passage of time.
At your insistence, we'll just split the difference—
It's something that I'll have to fight.

So fill up your stomachs with wine,
And follow the passage of time.
At your insistence we'll just split the difference—
It's something that I'll have to fight.
It's just something that I'll have to fight.
It's just something that I'll have to fight.
Track Name: Pennsylvania Song
I can't decide
If seeing you is worth having to say goodbye.
It could be worth the ride
Lately I've thought feeling dead is feeling alive,
But I don't want to die—
At least not as long as you're still alive,
And I call you mine,
And the reason for any pride.

So if you see some musicians,
Will you think of me?
When you laugh with your friends,
Will on your mind I be?
When you crawl into bed and shut the lids of your eyes,
Will you read what I wrote on the other side:
If distance weren't significant,
Than I couldn't be far away
From holding you forever
And shielding you from your pain.
If nothing else did matter to an angel and a fool,
I'd hop on the next train to Pennsylvania and marry you.

If I finally
Am able to slow down my thoughts and sleep,
Maybe I could dream
Away the three hundred miles that lie in between.
Just to lie with you,
'Cause that's all my heart would stop beating to do.
If you need more proof,
Open your own and I'll sing it to you.


So if you see some musicians,
Will you think of me?
When you laugh with your friends,
Will on your mind I be?
When you crawl into bed and shut the lids of your eyes,
Will you read what I wrote on the other side:
If distance weren't significant,
Than I couldn't be far away
From holding you forever
And shielding you from your pain.
If nothing else did matter to an angel and a fool,
I'd hop on the next train to Pennsylvania and marry you.
