Track Name: The nest
Rain comes in spring
and leaves in the fall
The letter it read
"For once and for all"
But I'm looking down
from inside my room
The story I tell
reminds me of you

Three little eggs
baby my blue
Fallen from branches
without a clue
I gently hold them
warm to my chest
Lower them down
back to the nest

Answers I seek
but silence I hear
But oh, how this music
tickles my ear
Walk to the graveyard
when I'm feeling down
There on the footpath
the note that I found

Be still my darling
baby my blue
Fallen from heaven
without a clue
So gently I hold you
warm to my chest
and lower you down
so you can rest
Track Name: Dream of you
Where do you go
these lonely nights?

Who keeps your keys
and dries your eyes?

Show me the window you look through
when the sun comes out for you

I used to be
an errant son

Now I'm supine
with headphones on

Trying to sleep, but what's the use
when sleep is but a dream of you?
Track Name: A guitar without the strings
Guess I lost myself
but I have something to tell you

When I look you in the eye
it's my heart you see straight into

I don't waste time anymore
I'd rather not think about all the thoughts I had
that held me back and distorted my vision

Could we drive through town tonight
I'll sleep it off in the back seat

Cause my wings are giving out
and all my strength eludes me

I don't waste time anymore
I'd rather not think about all the thoughts I had
that held me back and distorted my vision

A guitar without the strings
is what I'd be without you

And I love to play and sing
and watch the sunset with you
Track Name: Hobbes
Then just like that, you came in from the rain
You'd changed your hair but your eyes were the same
We exchanged words 'bout our lives and our jobs
You'd bought a house and a tabby named “Hobbes"

We parted ways but I thought of you still
Went home and found our disposable film
One where we're laughing and looking away
Somewhere downtown on a blossoming day in May

Here in my memory, we’re still so young

Last time I saw you, so strung out and white
High off the pills you were taking each night
I didn’t know but could see in your eyes
The hatred and pain you were feeling inside

If memory serves, we were 16 years old
Just as naive as the stories we told
We shared CDs, clothing, and poetry
Now that I’m older, they're special to me and you

Here in this picture, we were so young
