Track Name: Playing Chess
We spoke about the future or the fountain of youth, now I'm spooked
I hang suspended sweetheart cut me loose, because I'm having tunnel vision fade from blacks to blues from you
The way you soak your fists in war paint, you could make the lord pray

You stole from me a mirror so I stayed undressed, playing chess
Out in an alley where you think your best
But boy those lion paws look tired, I'll keep watch you need your rest
If Samson dealt you pity, could he look this pretty?
Track Name: Orbital
I walked home and had a talk with the moon
She told me to be real careful of you
She saw you walkin' me home but she knows how I'm sad when I wake up alone
She turned her cheek and watched us go

When I awoke there I was left with what I slept in as I crept out like you crept in such a mess now but a blessing that you paint yourself to be a saint, your silent bravery, it's pain or patience I'll receive either way I'm on my knees

So I walked home with the morning sun
He said oh my god just what have you become
Daylight's up and casting shadows on your grace
You gotta be more careful of your secrets in this place
Take 'em off your sleeve and put a bag over your face
And don't you ever feel for all the mess that you make

When I awoke there I was left with what I slept in as I crept out like you crept in such a mess now but a blessing that you paint yourself to be a saint, your silent bravery, it's pain or patience I'll receive either way I'm on my knees
So tear my eyelids make see what we may never grow to be
If I evoke dishonesty, or you're a liar and a thief
The truth is nothing that I need
If I cut you you will bleed and that is true enough for me
You're true enough for me
Track Name: If Walls Could Talk
If walls could talk they'd yell at me to stop
And if walls could see I know they'd look right through me
And if you were still here you'd ask them not to stare
But you left home a long, long time ago
Now you're just a ghost

I've been trying to clear my head so I clear it through my nose
Lately all I see anymore is red it's like nothing fills me up
I've been trying to get my smile back, but no one seems to know your tricks
And yeah I know to drink my coffee black, but it's your sugar that I miss

When it came time to choose between missing you or something new
I know I stuck you like a bruise, a foolish game we went and played
But someone had to lose
So stuck inside your head, chock full of who knows what
The same shit that keeps you up is gonna bring you down
Who'll be around when you come down for good?
Track Name: Bruise
Now, patience is free, if you weren't able to say what you need how could you expect that from me?
Just fall back asleep
Still, we painfully freeze in springtime, us both, we're afraid to bare leaves
To know what we'll be
It's selfish and cheap

From your poet collar to your Sunday shoes where you're tapping out your ones and twos I'm dogging the trail, I'm sifting through your clues
We'll lack all we lose, but my blacks met your blues
We found beauty in pain and truly we made quite the bruise

Now, patience is key, it seems though you never reserve that for me, you can't disagree
I can't fall asleep
My head feels a hundred degrees, if this fever breaks by one hundred and three then we'll be at ease
Both still bare naked trees

From your poet collar to your Sunday shoes where you're tapping out your ones and twos I'm dogging the trail, I'm sifting through your clues
We'll lack all we lose, but my blacks met your blues
We found beauty in pain and truly we made quite the bruise
Track Name: Always/Never
It's a lonely town, I've got that figured out by now
So pack me up and ship me out, and see what you won't live without
There's never a good time to cast out your line
You go your way, I'll go mine
Always out of sight and I'm out of mind

In the morning I awoke, in this house all alone
You never made a single sound, as you left not on your way out
So pack me up and ship me off, see where I will end up
Cause in the morning I'll be fine
Always out of sight and I'm out of mind

Never ever saw you coming, now I know I'll never see
Never ever heard you leaving, gotta be the first to leave
Track Name: Back To Black
He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
