Track Name: Overcaffeinated
well i'm overcaffeinated
both hands on a coffee cup i'm praying
for a girl who would've waited

and on a morning after
read a longer chapter
open the blinds and let the light in

cause i saw your beauty in the dark
felt your beating heart
the one you say is always changing

now i'm climbing your steps
well dressed in second guesses
and explanations

cause i wanna see every corner
of this big world

i want to get day drunk
with a cute girl

i want to kiss your forehead and read your palms
i want to do it over and over again
like a repeating song you love
Track Name: Thinking Out Loud
with all the questions i face
and days that i can't get back
how would you solve the problem?
how would your heart react?

your room's spinning circles
and you're laying down
there's boredom in your bloodstream
and smoke in your mouth

remember when you gave a shit?
remember when you were a good kid?

now you're thinking out loud
you can't calm down
pining for what you can't get back now

cause it's too late
to dig that grave
to change your name
and stay the same

now the day's a tall drink
sunlight in my eyes
i got a friend beside me
we're gonna let it ride

yeah this crystal city
could shatter like glass
why you crying baby?
swallowed in the black

remember when i gave a shit?
remember when i was a good kid?

with a coffee pot grin
i'll atone for my sins
cheap diner booth and neon light

carving my name in the table
having the time of my life
just twisting a knife
Track Name: Woke You
baby you were lovely
when i woke you in the morning
but you'd probably be embarrassed about it

you said that you were dreaming
of a picture i was painting
of a room where we could always be

tangled in the blankets
every angle there was sweetness
and i wanted to crawl in

and whisper to you truly
how i love you absolutely
yeah you feel just like my life beginning

yeah girl i'm just so thankful
from your forehead to your ankles
you're a perfect song that i never wrote

so i'll do all in my power
with every precious hour
to give you all that life can hold
Track Name: Who Is Your Lover?
hey darling now that we've parted
draw a line back to where it started
you sharpshooter, arrow-hearted
and i was your easy target

where do you run to when it's all gone?
who is your lover?

a busted lip, a broken nose in my hands
the good fight don't always go as it's planned
but i know you're happy somewhere
just not sure if i'll ever get there

yeah where do you run to when it's all gone?
who is your lover?

do you remember all those nights
when your heart was breaking down?
i cared, i was always there to hear you out

so where do you run to when it's all gone?
who is your lover?
Track Name: Familiar Darkness
my tongue's got a stutter
and my heart's got a stammer
across the room
i'm always so quietly enamored

but my roommate takes care of me
when i stumble home
it's stormin' out my window now
i've got nowhere to go

my friends are stitchin' up my clothes
and she's got a new boyfriend
i wonder what her mother thinks
and what she does on the weekends

once in every while
my mind will take me back there
see you dancing in that sweatshirt
and your purple underwear

the last time that we spoke
i was laying on the carpet
my thoughts drifted away
back to that familiar darkness

where i dream about your voice
hell, you'll always be my favorite thing
"baby, why can't you see it?
this keeps happening."

well it seems i've come to like these blues
however long they last
yeah i guess that you've become my muse
i'm sorry i didn't ask

i hope you have good memories
nothing too bad
the spoonin', the music,
and the distance that held us back
Track Name: Thunderstorm
i took the river parkway to the county
and a calmer state of mind
it's quiet in the kitchen now
but i remember the time

my grandfather sang old army songs
while his brain was going bad
and i told him i was talking again
with that girl i wish i had

now he's a folded flag on a piano lid
in a living room where i played as a kid
and i think of him, like i think of her,
every day

but across the table
jeramiah looked at me straight in the face
he said "you can't get stuck,
no you can't stay in that negative space."

so i'm living and i'm learning
let the layers burn away
and i'll meet you on a park bench
after months of rain

i just wish the thunderstorm stayed overhead
a little longer
i want to get pushed around
yeah tonight i'm feeling darker
Track Name: Love Ain't True
what do i do for you sweetie?
love ain't true
so stop believing in me

come and go
plans, not making
all the joy
that high you're chasing

yeah what do i do for you sweetie?
love ain't true
so stop believing in me

but you will come up like the goddamn truth

yeah what do i do for you sweetie?
love ain't true
so stop believing in me
Track Name: Working Through It
so what do you think
if you think anything at all?
cause i'm laying here
just feeling pitiful

cause you ran back
to that same old place
i am hoping for the better baby
it has changed

yeah i got a feeling you're working through it
true love's gonna last through it

so what did you lose
if you lost anything at all?
just a look or a kiss i gave you
in the hall

well that's all over baby
dead and gone
still you're my favorite thing, girl
all along

and i got a feeling you're working through it
true love's gonna last through it

when life keeps letting you down
and i can't spend the night
things may turn around
i'm hoping that they might

yeah i got a feeling you're working through it
true love's gonna last through it
yeah that's how we all gotta do it
Track Name: When The Lightning Hits You Twice
loves the moving and the singing
troubled heart got tunnel vision
my libra love can't balance out
i heard you're leaving town

loves the dancing and the swaying
thunder only when it's raining
my libra love don't know how to act
truth gets buried in the past

but i recall the snow
and that coffee shop glow

now it's the same words that i write
when the lightning hits you twice
my libra love won't level out
and finally put the pen down

cause when we met in every past life
i tried to tell you you were ahead of your time
i wonder if you still remember
the sidewalks and the weather

when i had a look in my eye
that i only get once and a while
yeah i had a look in my eye
that i only get once and a while

and i'd leave these songs in the dirt
and hide gas money, folded in your purse
cause baby, it's a long way
i know now that baby it's a long way
Track Name: Diamond In The Desert
a diamond in the desert
a feather in the sky
who do you wanna be
when you close your eyes?

an old picture in dresser
a new lover at your feet
what fills up your mind
before you fall asleep?

a diamond in the desert
a feather in the sky
where do you wanna be
when you close your eyes?

a diamond in the desert
a dreamer on the coast
let yourself surrender
to whereever life will go
