Track Name: LAME
Well I have plans
But they flew away
And if you ask me about them
Well, that'd be okay
And I get sad
And I don't talk
I get just quiet

I'm so lame

I have a dog
He likes to bark
And I am a human
I play guitar
And I have plans
With you today
You can see my dog
But I tell ya
He don't play

Cause he's so lame
Yeah I guess
We're so lame
Track Name: While You're Away
Well ya know
I miss you
While you're away
At school
We never get the
Seasons together
But I'm in love
Hell, I'm glued to you

So you'd better keep your head up
Cause ya know I'll be seeing you soon
And we'll keep warm in the bed of my room

This is a long
Long fall
There's such a drought
I could die in your arms
Unless you'd wanna
Die first
You're the most charming curse
That I'd ever wish on myself

So you'd better keep your head up
Cause you know I'd take a walk in the dark
If it's the way to get to your heart
Track Name: Mend
Wait, the ambition in your eyes is gone
A truth that we despise
Your character's demise
A birth, but it's at a grave site
You're killing all the time
Our youth is on the line

We can mend this
Mend our broken hearts
Make them stronger
Than they were at the start

Wait, please don't fall asleep now
We can play in the dark
Where these two worlds will spark
Love, terror's all around us
But we won't fall apart
No, we won't fall apart

We can mend this
Mend our broken hearts
Make them stronger
Than they were at the start
Track Name: Handkerchief
You haven't slept for forty minutes
Without it crossing your mind
No pitter-patters line the kitchen
Haunted howlings with no hound
You separate your childhood visions
From salted wounds that cannot heal
No furry eyes drawn to a television
Reflections that cannot feel
What is meant behind this handkerchief
That was wrapped around your neck
On the last day that you felt alive
That moment that you caught your breath

A quick trip to the doctor
Made the hardest words to chew
Remember the time we brought you home
It’s hard to forget, a tear or two
But now you’re a phantom in a wallet
A handkerchief I can’t forget
Some pictures in a photo album
The creaks that haunt the house I live
You haven’t slept for forty minutes
Without it crossing your mind
No pitter-patters line the kitchen
Haunted howlings with no hound
Track Name: An Ending. A Beginning.
I will search the stars for you
Calling out your name
The distance isn't May or June
It's just a block away
And you will haunt my melodies
Your soul in every page
You seed yourself inside these walls
And they will never age

And my memories may bring me pain
Those loving moments in the rain
Won't wash away with you

My love has grown so wild, so tall
It is for you it craves
But I am feeling six-feet small
Standing at your grave
