Track Name: Ricketts Wood
Hold your breath, the middle of the end is here
The seventh step has always been the hardest one to tread
I'll make it through, I'll follow you

I've seen you here, you're always on the way to quell my deepest fears
I've always been so quick to shed a tear
But that all changed when I met you so

Pick the pieces up
Hold on to my love
I'd spend a hundred years with you and it wouldn't be enough

The night is young, the moon is just a child and he calls to us
Asking if a memory's enough to make us love his lullaby

I think we should go out to Ricketts Wood
It might be good to get a breath of air
I could break right down, so darling, won't you

Pick the pieces up
Hold on to my love
I'd spend a hundred years with you and it wouldn't be enough
Track Name: Sun Comes Out
I've seen the calmer side of pain and compromise
I've seen you smile when the music in your head has died
I know you look to me when there's no poetry
No rhyme or reason to the things you called your destiny

And all we want is all we've got
I can't think of anything else
I only want to spend my time with you

We're young enough to be afraid of living free
We've still got time to punch the clock
So now let's sing 'til the sun comes out

I've seen the darker side of living for your life
No destination, just keep walking 'til your pain subsides
This day is never done, I need another one
Another way to tell myself that I'll keep on the run

And all we want is all we've got
I can't think of anything else
I only want to spend my time with you

We're young enough to be afraid of living free
We've still got time to punch the clock
So now let's sing 'til the sun comes out
Track Name: Silent Page
Black rain hits this window pane and takes me where I can't stay
Inside my mind
Where jealousy occupies the dark recesses of my eyes
And gives me away

You wrote something on a silent page
Coma conversations racing through my brain

Oh God, I can't take it any longer
Somewhere someone said that I was stronger
But these voices haunt me in the midnight hour
And I fear I'll let you go

Cold comfort in mockingbirds is something that you should hold on to
When this day's done
While storm clouds may block your sight
There still will always be a light under the sun

You wrote something on a silent page
Coma conversations racing through my brain

I know you can't take it any longer
I will hold you 'til you're feeling stronger
Don't let visions haunt you in the midnight hour
I will never let you go

I will stay right by your side, I will stay
Track Name: Steal Away
Once I was haunted by the promise of a lonely life
It lingers on my tongue
Ten thousand ways to turn a phrase into a scar or burn
And the saddest thing I've done is staring at me now
Naked, high and down and out, escape's eluding me
I'd like to make believe the heart I've painted on my sleeve
Is the one that still beats

And now I'm haunted every night
Your breath is in my lungs
I keep your comfort by my side
Your pillow's still propped up
I'll keep you company in your fondest memories
And now I'm haunted every night
With thorns you crowned my love

Don't look at me that way, I'm sorry for the things I say
Or at least the ones you've heard
I'd like to say I've tried but good folks never tell no lies
So I'll never say a word

And now I'm haunted every night
Your breath is in my lungs
I keep your comfort by my side
Your pillow's still propped up
I'll keep you company in your fondest memories
And now I'm haunted every night
With thorns you crowned my love

I watch you steal away
Track Name: The Ghost
I walk the streets tonight, these shadows are my only home
The wind sweeps the houses bare to make sure I know I am alone
In this, my darkest hour, I see the signs from long before
A tongue slips and one heart breaks but I will not crawl right back for more

I won't listen to the ghost
Just the ones I love the most

I've been enslaved to the notion of leaving
Forgetting to know where I am
Yes, there are two things that I still believe in
A song and the love in our hands

I walk this old dirt road, abandoned by my brothers past
The wind kicks the dust clouds up, I shield my face and I turn back
There's nothing here for me, I know the place where I belong
I still can chase these dreams, the past is short, the future's long

I won't listen to the ghost
Just the ones I love the most

I've been enslaved to the notion of leaving
Forgetting to know where I am
Yes, there are two things that I still believe in
A song and the love in our hands
