Track Name: Somebody Like You
You say he's not right for me
But you don't know him like I know him
You say there's no warmth to him
But you don't see him when we are alone

I can't love somebody like you
Just because you want me to

You say he only brings me down
You must be up real high to get that view
You say he doesn't love me
But how can you know for sure that you do

I can't love somebody like you
Just because you want me to
Track Name: Forms
we wait for the light to turn back on
we feel
we feel like we can always go back home
that the light on the porch will guide us through familiar steps

we peer through the hole we carve in the board
we name all the shapes we are drawn towards
that the light from the sun will draw pictures with the shadows from

what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself
what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself
i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself
i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself

we hold up the lines we impart on white page
we move with the weight and the glow of old ages
and the light in both states will guide us through the darkest space

we are born of the thoughts 
we exist then narrate
we are fashioned to forms by where they are created
and the light from the sun will remind us where we started from

what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself
what if all i carry in my head is not real it’s just something i said to myself
i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself
i’m not real i’m just something i said to myself
Track Name: I Know I Know
i have a weakness for boys who ain’t right
and i have a cry so quiet they can’t hear it at night
sometimes he comes home he don’t say hello
i feel like I’m not here when you don’t tell me so

I know I know that I should go
I know I know that I should go
I know I know that I should go

you like to break things down to their core
well i don’t think that i can be broken down anymore
i think i’d be bigger without you
i see myself so small coz it’s your eyes i’m looking through

I know I know that I should go
I know I know that I should go
I know I know that I should go

you don't linger when i lean in for a kiss
yeah i knew love was hard work but i wanted more than this
even if the distance isn’t me
i’m the one who’s drowning when i try to cross that sea

I know I know that I should go
I know I know that I should go
I know I know that I should go
Track Name: 10 to 6
ten to six
didn’t sleep a wink
morning’s cold
bones frozen stiff
you’re getting old

work hard
boss complaining ‘bout jews and chinks
any talk is about the game
you paint every surface in the room
it all looks the same

You say it’s faded the colours are no longer bright
Maybe you’re right babe
Everything changes but I’ll always keep on the light for you

home round three
to dirty dishes
an over crowded house
to left out margarine
so you give the kitchen a quick clean

too tired to read
laying on your bed and take a nap
holding the Lawrence
you got from Kate
you’re trying not to sleep to late

You say it’s faded the colours are no longer bright
Maybe you’re right babe
Everything changes but I’ll always keep on the light for you

try not to fall asleep on the highway
try to keep your car a little tidy
try to keep your mind from letting go
you listen to the radio
Bigsy gives you a smile

you’re always trying to be better
in the middle of the shit
saving for a a place but we’ve only got a bit
when you’re not too tired you have a play on the guitar

You say it’s faded the colours are no longer bright
Maybe you’re right babe
Everything changes but I’ll always keep on the light for you

I’ll always keep on this light
Track Name: Around The House
how could i forget how nice it is to lay around the house
i haven’t had a moment to myself and the time it flies so fast

oh - a moment just to be
in my quiet company
