Track Name: Minus 10
This is what I know
I was just a kid
in a 99 Cavalier
snow clad and Boston bound
and lost in the city sound
This is what I know

It was minus 10
Last band to play again
A softly strummed teenage hymn
To the coffee shop’s closing shift

This is what I know
It’s so hard to try to be what you
though you wanted
But time leaves scars that make you
wonder what you fought for

It’s been a long time
Since New England
Since the evergreens
Since the feeling of knowing you are free

I need much more than a paycheck every Friday
One song, one chord, as long as I can strum it with my hands
The only thing I’ve ever had
Track Name: Crystal Palace
Do you notice anyone
Peeled back by the weight of your own pain
care for anything?
apathetic to the point of shame

So cover up
They never had enough
tell me when will you see beyond it
show the grace that you have yet to give

Define your morality
When you make good on what you said
Do all the right things
You wish to do what makes you brave
So stand up straight
Rid yourself of that weight
See the world in a story ending
Or see the world in the ways it has to change

Stuck inside a crystal palace
why would you ever want to
leave behind your crystal palace?
There’s a real world outside

But it’s never close enough
Till it’s all the way
you have to step outside your pain
Track Name: Moving the Sun
Somebody someday will find me
And I’ll pay all mistakes that define me
But until then the light you create it the most that I know
And I’m scared that you might be the one that I’m looking for

Someday you’ll desert me
Play the back like the enemy said
“You’re nothing to no one, come back when you have someone here”
And you live like the angels told you put the sin in sincere

Teach me to live teach me to breathe like you do
Someday I hope that I won’t need a way back to you
Two are in love
Moving the sun while you speak
But I know that I’m not the one to give you what you need
So go on alone
Track Name: I Could Not Be Here
A satellite
is what I need
to hear you out
when I believe

I could not be here
I could not be here

7 years
across the bridge
I found my roots
in time to quit

I could not be here
I could not be here
I could not be here

so lonely
so unprepared
Spending hours sobering up

empty red cup
hipster party talk
Spending hours covering up

Small words carry weight
I wish I had your faith
your love is why I sing
It means so much to say
I won’t let you down
