Track Name: Fires of Your Own
You built shelter from the cold, frost was settling in your coat,
the trees were rattling all their bones that night
I would retrace all your tracks you were never too good at that,
leaving piles of memories in all your steps

As I try to find you amid old stones
You reside in all of your self-made holes
Tell me how, tell me where you built
Fires
Of your own

Now you're so far in those tracks,
I look up to recall your breath, the air it turns in ways you moved before
Watch it float on up so high,
Into pictures of past and time, I know your out there with the bones at night

As I try to find you amid old stones
You reside in all of your self-made holes
Tell me how, tell me where you built
Fires
Of your own
Track Name: You and I Survive
You asked me "How I feel feel alive"
"Inside my head" I said to you
It's all that I can do most times

In other words I cannot seem
to break the ties from empathy
It builds me up and pushes me round right

Then you hold it down so tight
Tied it into knots to stay on ground
See how it digs without making sound
I watch as you slowly let it out
As you and I
As you and I

Survive, survive, survive
You and I, and I, survive
Survive, survive, survive,
You and I, you and I, survive

Now there's darkness in the yard
It's all that I can do hold on
To you, we move, it's trailing at our heels
Round the garden holes in ground
I always fall you lift me up
And even dark can make the smallest light

Then you hold it down so tight
Tied it into knots to stay on ground
See how it digs without making sound
I watch as you slowly let it out
As you and I
As you and I

Survive, survive, survive
You and I, and I, and I
Survive, survive, survive,
You and I, survive
Track Name: Move to the Moon
Well I moved around since I was two
Montgomery, midwest fields of corn, and then some Texan blue
I stayed a while in Caroline
Where spanish moss and turn to sweet gums following power lines
In Caroline I found love three times
Each ended worse than moving hurts and I swore off love goodbyes

But time it settles in our bones
Outside the winters coming cold
But I've never seen nobody look at me like you before
No I've never seen nobody look at me like you before

In Caroline things turned to blue
Moving round is much too much if I don't have you too
So we said goodbye to Caroline,
Now Tennessee, 2 dogs, 1 key, I jumped right in with you
In Tennessee it's where we've been
My heart is full move to the moon if that's where we begin

But time it settles in our bones
Outside the winters coming cold
But I've never seen nobody look at me like you before
No I've never seen nobody look at me like you before
Track Name: Speck
Speck in your eye to the right of green
I can rely on it lines of gold in between
In it there I'm reflecting off you
You say I belong here as you blink I'm renewed

And I smell the salt it tastes like your skin
Or the cool breeze verbena in winds

Speck in your eye to the right of green
I can rely on it lines of gold in between
In in I'm there reflecting off you
You say I belong here as you blink I'm renewed
Track Name: White Wine White Noise
White wine white noise these rainy nights they poise a delicate frame for us to sit
And I know they've got you working hard you always get the worst hand so you think
And while you work I'm here it's dark the dogs are clutching near my face they curl on your old pillows
A week you say one more of this but I don't think we can persist if all I see's your green eyes closed

This white noise
This white noise

Coffee caffeine you come just to sleep between my sips you softly kiss my lips
And I know you wanna sleep it off the night time isn't easy you lose grip
But babe I think we figured wrong this love of ours could last so long the dogs they curl on your new pillow
A week you say one more of this and I do think we can persist
All I need's your green gold eyes

This white noise
This white noise
