Track Name: Shot in the Dark
You may not know this baby
But I have noticed you
I think that you’re amazing
And you don’t have a clue
Oh I suppose I could’ve
Chosen my words carefully
Just to find them dissipating
Every time you look at me

I could be the sunlight
To your seeds
All the things you didn’t know
You need
I’ve played it in my head
a thousand times
All the things I’d do
if you were mine

I’ve seen you struggling lately
When there’s no need for that
You could be sailing onward
I could be the wind at your back
With all your flyness
And my shyness
I’ve been hard to see
I just had to take this shot in the dark
So that you might notice me

I could be the sunlight
to your seeds
All the things you
didn’t know you need
I’ve played it in my head
a thousand times
All the things I’d do
if you were mine

And if you’re feeling lonely
You are not the only one
Its absurd to me that you
might feel unloved
Just because I’m quiet
doesn’t mean that I don’t see
All the guys that you like
Never seem to act right
Why not take a chance on me?

Don’t laugh,
but I can’t talk
when you look like that

I could be the sunlight
To your seeds
All the things you
Didn’t know you need
I’ve played it in my head
a thousand times
All the things I’d do
if you were mine
Track Name: Keep On
I see it in myself
but I can't grab it
then I found it in you
but I can't have it
try to shake it off
I won't stop moving
slow motion just like the movies

gotta ask myself
what's the point in crying
if you ain't living life
girl you know you're dying

I gotta try
I gotta try again

I see it in myself
but I can't grab it
then I found it in you
but I can't have it
try to shake it off
I won't stop moving
slow motion just like the movies

I keep on falling
I keep on falling
for the wrong ones
the wrong ones

gotta ask myself
what's the point in crying
if you ain't living life
girl you know you're dying

I gotta try
I gotta try again

try to shake it off
I won't stop moving
slow motion just like the movies

I keep on falling
I keep on falling
for the wrong ones
the wrong ones
Track Name: The Carrot, The Stick and The String
I've been down for so long
I could only hang my head
I'd listen to the words they said
but nothing resonated
I've been swindled and spun
seeing what was to come
Was nothing that I wanted

And when I started to sing
I could see clearly how
to make it out alive

I've been dreaming big
since I was little
And I know what I was working for
Every single sacrifice
every single time I cried
It was worth it

I packed all my things
Said my goodbyes to friends
without really knowing
when I'd see them again

so I took the reigns instead
to quiet the fears in my head

I've been dreaming big since I was little
And I know what I was working for
Every single sacrifice
every single time I cried
It was worth it

I gave the best of all the love I had
I was unclouded by the thought of holding back
you took the shyness out of me immediately
I never thought that love would get the best of me
(you got the best of me)

I've been dreaming big
since I was little
so I took the reigns instead
to quiet the fears in my head
Track Name: Omnichord Interlude
I gave the best of all the love I had
I was unclouded by the thought of holding back
You took the shyness out of me immediately
I never thought that love would get the best of me
(You got the best of me)

And now I'm just looking back
while everybody's moving on

The minute hand's a dagger in my side
and twists my stomach clockwise every time
the pup at the door sweeps her tail on the floor
at the thought of you
Nowhere in sight
so I turn off the light
cause you won't come through

we could wait
we could change
we could stay and stay the same...

There's only moving on
Track Name: Crane Song
There is no way
we can stay here
in the gray that's relayed
We're insane
trying the same things
to keep us afloat
while we're sinking

And everything we've tried
is trial and error
and everything we've made
has come apart
every place I've been
begins to hurt me
and now I've got no place
to put my heart

Can't you hear the crane song
calling us apart?
Yes I know
I'm not ready to go either
I know I wasn't meant to crawl
all along
I've been longing fly

There is no way
we can stay here
in the gray that's relayed
We're insane
trying the same things
that keep us afloat
while we're sinking

And everything we've tried
is trial and error
and everything we've made
has come apart
every place I've been
begins to hurt me
and now I've got no place
to put my heart

Can't you hear the crane song
calling us apart?
Yes I know
I'm not ready to go either
I know I wasn't meant to crawl
all along
I've been longing fly

We keep falling falling further
and we're falling out of touch...
Track Name: An Unscratchable Itch
There was a time
I was unafraid
But the mistakes that we've made
well, it took that away

There was a light
guiding us home
and I felt so alone
that I stepped off the road

And if it feels aright
feels alright
you know I gotta do it
and if it tastes good
tastes good
I always end up chewing

That's the rub
I do it for the love
That's the rub
I do it for the love

There was a switch
and we flipped it at will
but we had no idea
what it did down the hill

There was a word
we used to use
for people like us
who do what we do

If it feels alright
feels alright
you know I gotta do it
and if it tastes good
tastes good
I always end up chewing

That's the rub
I do it for the love
That's the rub
I do it for the love
