Track Name: Sometimes Love Is Not Enough
Always get stuck in yesterday
The tides that never change
A sun forever set

I’m watching winter through a jar
I wonder where you are
I wonder why I care

Sometimes love is not enough
It kills me to admit it
I’ve been such a fool

Sometimes love is not enough
Enough to fill your cup
That cup is never full

I’ll live exactly like I did
I’m just a little kid
My arms are open wide

You’re still learning who you are
Nursing all those scars
Who said that love would heal?

Maybe I’m crazy
Talking to ghosts I cannot hear
Exhuming remains I
Should have left alone for dead

Sometimes love is not enough
Track Name: It Becomes You
Tied
Tied to a tree
Like a dog
On a rope

Tied
Tied to a dream
The thread
Of hope

Taste the flower
Of wine
One more
Time

Late
Late in the day
Hope God loves
A Trier

It becomes you

It becomes you

It becomes you
Track Name: Give Up
Give up on your old man
Give up on wedding plans
Give up on lying to yourself
Give up on everything

The ocean is not infinite
It’s really just a little bit
Of water lying beneath the stars
None of it was ever ours

As hard as I
Have ever had to try
Stars falling down on me

As hard as I
Have ever had to try
Just want to give up on
Everything
Track Name: Blue Apples
Love this hell
Right out of me
Or let me be
Just let me go

Day by day
You wear me thin
Lets get married in
An empty church
White lilies
For the stone

There’s a gutter in the sky
I sail my paper boat
Amid the stars we’ve
Fallen from

There’s a gutter in the sky
Your empty church
Your God
And I
Track Name: Sundowner
I watch the sun down
Back on the coast
Deep in the homeland
The hearts are afloat

I feel you closer
You’re closer than most
The day is still breathing
I lie like a ghost

Letting the words come
Your heart in your throat
Bleeding through all of
The songs that you wrote

There’s something inside me
And I need a smoke
Share if your smiling
I love a bad joke

I know I’m wicked
I know that I’m wise
Thirty-five years
Still the sun
Makes you cry

Go make your offering
Go down to the sea
I’m full of your ocean
It’s pounding in me

I feel you closing
In sure symmetry
Dismember emotion or
Drown it in me

I know I’m wicked
I know that I’m wise
Thirty-five years
Still the sun
Makes you cry
I know I’m lonely
I know I forget
Just play me
The sundowner
Lay me to rest
Track Name: You And Not I
Does anybody want it
In their lives?
Can anybody feel it
And dare I?

Can everybody see that
It can’t end?
Is everybody safe now?
Call your friends.

You and not I
You and not I

Can anybody speak, love
And not lie?
Can everybody see now?
Close your eyes.

I know that everybody’s dreaming
In their heads
I’m watching everybody sleeping
In my bed

You and not I
You and not I
You and not I
You and not I

Does anybody want it
In their lives?
Can anybody feel it
And dare I?

I know that I’m just dreaming
In my head
Watching everybody sleeping
In their beds

You and not I
You and not I
You and not I
You and not I
