Track Name: Intro
(muffled talking)
Track Name: Bridges
Between bridges crossed and bridges yet to pass
Bridges burned and bridges we hope will last
Pathways soon to form, and severed ties
Some shall fall while some have yet to rise

Worn old roads and roads newly complete
The streetlights shine on freshly poured concrete
Bridges with no chance we know to break
Are the ones that we give more than they can take

I will find my way to places I have been
I’m leaving here to try to save
All my bridges that decayed
Fix the scars I made that I have yet to see

Coffee cups and unresolved farewells
Don’t understand the stories that they tell
“I love you” was the one phrase never heard
So that bridge collapsed without another word

I will find my way to places I have been
I’m leaving here to try to save
All my bridges that decayed
Fix the scars I made that I have yet to see
Track Name: Sensible Enough
2 AM on a Tuesday morning
Or rather I’d say a Monday night
I’m walking home in the pouring rain
The steamy droplets obscure my sight
I’m walking fast singing old-time show-tunes
I leave the comfort of the umbrella
I pat myself on the back for my cowardice
I stayed the same; too unnerved to tell her

I’m sensible enough to reintroduce my fear
I’ve done enough to mess this up already, but
My heart is shouting, “Hey, you can’t give up that easy”
But when I try to speak, my mind won’t let me

Writing songs in the stone-cold basement
Songs that may never reach her ears
If she heard them, my intentions would come through
But they’d bring with them my darkest fears
Notes that she’ll never truly savor
The way I feel when I let them out
An unaffectionate hug or handshake
For all my pent up longing and doubt

I’m sensible enough to reintroduce my fear
I’ve done enough to mess this up already, but
My heart is shouting, “Hey, you can’t give up that easy”
But when I try to speak, my mind won’t let me

And I don’t know what to do
We’ll only both end up hurt this way
I don’t know what I mean to you
And I don’t know what to say
2 AM on a Tuesday morning
Still feels like a Monday night
I made it home from the pouring rain
But now you’re stuck in my mind

I’m sensible enough to reintroduce my fear
I’ve done enough to mess this up already, but
My heart is shouting, “Hey, you can’t give up that easy”
But when I try to speak, my mind won’t let me
Track Name: Lost
Funny how fast; funny how fast a night can change
Just like the last; just like the last, they all end the same
Slowly at first; slowly at first, you spin me ‘round
‘Til I have to search; ‘til I have to search for solid ground
I had to search for solid ground

But you can’t start getting close again
Cause every time you do our heartstrings cross
And you’ve stuck me in a labyrinth
I’m trapped, and yet I can’t help feeling
Lost

Can’t help feeling lost

Drawing a line; I’m drawing a line to what’s been laid out before
How foolish am I; how foolish am I to think we’d have been more?
Tracing a path; tracing a path to where all this began
But funny how fast; funny how fast I’d still reach for your hand
Funny how fast I’d still reach for your hand

But you can’t start getting close again
Cause every time you do our heartstrings cross
And you’ve stuck me in a labyrinth
I’m trapped, and yet I can’t help feeling
Lost, lost lost, lost

Can't help feeling lost
Track Name: California Rainstorm
It’s not so dark out with my eyes closed
But I’ve never been as lost as now
It’s like a calm, collected panic
And I feel my heart in my mouth

Your silence speaks louder than you ever could
At least it still knows my name

So make your way for the skyline
The clouds are just beginning to form
It looks to me like we’re out of time
Cause when it rains, it always seems to pour
It’s a California rainstorm

I keep my head down in the summer
The sunlight only hurts my eyes
But thunderheads come to protect me
They’re such a blessing in disguise

Your silence speaks louder than you ever could
At least it still knows my name
The lightning will hold me like you never would
Enveloping me in flames

So make your way for the skyline
The clouds are just beginning to form
It looks to me like we’re out of time
Cause when it rains, it always seems to pour
It’s a California rainstorm

A California rainstorm

So make your way for the skyline
The clouds are just beginning to form
It looks to me like we’re out of time
Cause when it rains, it always seems to pour
Well I guess you got your California rainstorm
Your California rainstorm
Track Name: Don't Worry About Me
I’m in bittersweet company
As I sit so restlessly
In my revolving office chair
You’re down the block, but you won’t stop
And leave my mind, so leave your thoughts
They’re all I have when you’re elsewhere

What tomorrow brings may make another song to sing
So if you leave, well don’t worry about me

I’m dying in my head, in cardiac arrest
My heart’s shut down; I think it just bled out
When I started to wear it on my sleeve
The room is growing dim, but I’ve got a grin
Cause as I’m blacking out, you’re fading in
And I see that everyone is staring at me

What tomorrow brings may make another song to sing
So if you leave, well I guess I’ll let you be
You’ll find someone else who’ll give you hell
You’ll be a trophy wife up on their shelf
But I’ll be fine; don’t worry about me

Oh and I’ll be fine, oh love of mine
So go ahead and dry your eyes
And hurry up and say goodbye
Oh but don’t be blue; no, just get a clue
Well I’m kinda glad we’re finally through
Plus there’s this new girl... and she’ll be here in five

What tomorrow brings may make another song to sing
So if you leave, well I guess I’ll let you be
You’ll find someone else who’ll give you hell
You’ll be a trophy wife up on their shelf
But I’ll be fine; don’t worry about me

I'll tell you one thing sweetheart; you're a worthless, washed up, waste of my time

But I'll be fine; don't worry about me
I’ll be fine; don’t worry about me
Yes I’ll be fine; don’t worry about me
Track Name: Tunnels
If I just keep running as fast as I can, maybe it won’t chase me anymore
And maybe if I hide where I hid back then, I can lose it now like I lost it once before
In a big, dark tunnel with no sunlight, and no end, at least as far as I can see
But if I get caught alone in there, well it looks like this might be the end for me

If I hold you close, would you hold me back, so if we go down, we won’t go down alone
And show me again the look you had the first time that I had you for my own
I’ll miss my mom, I’ll miss my dad, but at least when they look back they’ll say I’d grown
I’ll miss my dreams, but you’re the proof I had that I reaped all that I had sewn

So tell me, tell me if you can see
If there’s a light at the end
It’s cold and dark, and I hear my heartbeat echo softly

So tell me, tell me if you can see
If there’s a light at the end
It’s cold and dark, and I hear my heartbeat
Track Name: Interlude
(Woooaaaahhhhh)
Track Name: Cannonball
Take her for a walk, turn her love to disdain
Turn your handle on the lock, close yourself out in the rain
Brand yourself with hurt, no, this feeling’s nothing new
You’ve gone and gotten worse; you have some growing up to do

You’ve met the eye inside the storm
You know you’ve wanted nothing more
You know your broken bones can go a little further
And if you’d just try, well you might take back your life

Learn to pick your fights, learn to pick yourself back up
Being a victim feels so right, you could never get enough
You shoot up for the heartbreak, you shoot up for the high
You shoot up to forget that she ever said goodbye

You’ve met the eye inside the storm
You know you’ve wanted nothing more
You know your broken bones can go a little further
And if you’d just try, well you might take back your life, but

Your pride’s a cannonball, you’ve got it hung around your neck
Track Name: Little Bird
You’re stronger than you know; I need you to be strong now
You may be soaring fast, but I’m quickly falling down
I know that you can’t hold the weight of you and I
So promise me one thing: you won’t watch me slip behind

And I will fall; fall for all those promises you kept
And I will fall; fall for always knowing what was best
And I will dive; dive out of the air, and down I’ll lay
But don’t cry, cause I’ve got only one thing left to say:
Little bird, I only hope you’ll fly away

The sky is growing small; too small to keep you in
Your dreams are much too tall, your patience far too thin
You’ve still got more to climb into the atmosphere
So take your hand from mine, and you can leave me here

And I will fall; fall for all those promises you kept
And I will fall; fall for always knowing what was best
And I will dive; dive out of the air, and down I’ll lay
But don’t cry, cause I’ve got only one thing left to say:
Little bird, I only hope you’ll fly away

So let me plunge to Earth, down by the ocean’s shore
But please don’t hesitate; don’t wait a second more
Once you know I have passed, just fly off towards the sun
Though we have ended here, your life has just begun

And I will fall; fall for promises you never kept
And I will fall; fall for never knowing what was best
And I will dive; dive out of the air, and down I’ll lay
But don’t cry, cause with my final breath you’ll hear me say,
"Little bird, I always knew you’d fly away"
Track Name: 21
21, we’re still young, with our futures yet to come
We swear our art will be enough
26, this is it, it’s the day we won’t forget
You’re in that white dress that you dreamed of
And I choke out, “I do”

35, you’re still mine, still the same looks in our eyes
Still the same girl in my arms
42, I’m still with you, we’ve still got so much left to do
And even though some times got hard
There was one thing that I knew

That even though we’ll grow up
Even when we have nothing to say
Even though we’ll get older
Our love will never age a day

54, we’ve learned more, but we still don’t know what’s in store
So we’ll just hold each other close
63, you’re with me, and we’re still just acting free
Like the only way we’ve known
Like the only way we’ll be

And even though we’ll grow up
Even when we have nothing to say
Even though we’ll get older
Our love will never age a day

91, I’m almost done, and I’m missing you my love
But I know I’ll see you soon
Cause I lost me at 83, when the sickness ended me
On the day it ended you
But by 92, I’ll be with you, and there’ll be nothing left to do
All the pain will just be done
But one thing’s true, you felt it too, and if there’s one thing that I knew
You had my heart since 21
Track Name: Moving Day
I’ve got 2 years of my life in a box in the corner of my room
The sticker on it says “Califor-ni-a”
No matter how I try, I just can’t wrap my head around it
Today is finally moving day

Of everyone I’ve met, I guess I’ll miss them all the most
But each for their own separate little ways
Some I’ll meet again, and some will fade off into darkness
But none of us will be the same

When I leave, will you still sing my songs?
If I go, would you carry me away?
And I’d rather you came with me, cause I’m scared to go alone
But this is still the place you need to stay

Even though it’s hard, we know it’s time for me to leave
All you’ve got are pictures of our days
You can save ‘em as I would, or you can take ‘em all for granted
The choice is now for you to make

When I leave, will you still sing my songs?
If I go, would you carry me away?
And I’d rather you came with me, but I’ve got to go alone
Cause this is still the place you need to stay

When I left, did you still sing my songs?
When I went, did you carry me away?
And I’m sure you don’t remember, but that sunny afternoon
For you I know that nothing really changed
But for me that was my moving day
Track Name: Home
There I watched the trees grow red
Before all the leaves were gone
And there I watched my oldest friend
Be laid in the Earth, and it felt so wrong

This was the place I once called home
My heart’s been right here all along

And there I loved, and there I lost
What once I thought was mine
And I was told the biggest lie
That my wounds would heal with time

This was place I once called home
My heart’s been right here all along
And though I’ve crossed these roads before
I’ll keep on moving ‘til I’m gone

The bridges break, and they fall
And I get caught in the middle of it all
But I’ve been here through all this time
I’ve watched my young boy soul finally growing strong

And this was place I once called home
My heart’s been right here all along
And though I’ve crossed these roads before
I’ll keep on moving ‘til I’m gone

While I have breath I’ll still stay strong
Cause my home’s been with me all along
