Track Name: In Love Again
If I were the stars and you were the sun would I bask forever in your afterglow?
If I was the tide and you were the moon would you pull me softly, close to you?

It starts with one word and I feel it rising up in me
A little scared but then what feeling could it possibly be?

Oh, I think that I'm in love again

If I was the breath inside of your lungs would you whisper slowly or hold me in?
If I was no fun and you were all the rage would you keep me around anyways?

The winds are changing and I hear them howling desperately
A little frightened, there's no other spell it could possibly be

Oh, I think that I'm in love again
Oh, I think that I'm in love again
Track Name: No Turning Back
Packed my bags this morning now I know i'm leaving

Time for new beginnings no more idle dreaming

I want the pretty life

I want the great big high

I wanna ride the wave

Stand up and say that I am born again

On the streets I hope that someone out there gets me

Left my worries far behind now I think right

I feel the heat at night

See stars across the sky

No need to feel any pain

Stand up and say that I am pure again, whole again

I remember the cloud of smoke that burned the sky

Recall the puzzles that delayed the year

And there's no going back to there I know

And there's no turning back again i'm sure

I know that all across the sky we search for signs that life ain't so bad

Nowadays we wonder why our dreams can't be the means to justify ourselves

I remember the cloud of smoke that burned the sky

Recall the puzzles that delayed the year

And there's no going back to there I know

And there's no turning back again i'm sure
Track Name: Coma
Sun drenched on a lazy day
Cold drinks in the morning
I fall asleep on an ocean wave
Get lost in laughter

Call the coast guard with the ransom
Take it easy on the rent
Be constructive in a daydream, I could live like this forever
Comatose with friends

Chase a beautiful green eyed girl
Hey, I think she likes me
I love her hair when it starts to unfurl
Backdrop of the evening

Throw a party on the train
Drown your worries in a cocktail
With the sunrise say your goodbyes
I know we will meet in the same place tomorrow
Here's a toast to the end

In an effort to make this last I turn off all the lights
I close my eyes and pretend I'm sleeping but in my head I'm sailing through the stars
Our love is strong, our love is weak, our love is all things
So don't get caught believing life's just a silhouette of dying

Call the coast guard with the ransom
Take it easy on the rent
Track Name: Loss Familiar
Awake again, the words you said '
Come back to me in waves and leave me reeling
You fought the plans to set the world on fire
Blew all my joy away and left me feeling like a charlatan

In my counterfeit revelry you steal the spotlight
In my hidden turbulence I’m found

It’s time to end it now
Cut the cord and let me drown

I trusted you, would’ve held your hand
Through the darkness if you pleased
But please remember
We’ll meet again at another time
Everything will be the same but loss familiar

In my counterfeit revelry you steal the spotlight
In my hidden turbulence I’m found

It’s time to end it now
Cut the cord and let me drown

You said yourself you’re over it
How could it be so wrong?
