Track Name: Kids in Love
KIDS IN LOVE

I might live and die an island
With the regret of doing neither in my thoughts
But it won’t be from lack of trying
No it won’t be that at all
I won’t flinch in the face of truth
When we’ve committed to nothing less
Still the fear I know in my blood and bones
Comes from the light on my nakedness
So let’s hold hands and remember before
When our eyes were small and our thoughts
were distant
Let’s kiss deep like it was long ago
When we were kids in love

I’ve got no one to fall back on
If the world I know turns inside out
I could run from every trouble and
still be under this dark cloud

I might live and die an island with no regrets at all
Track Name: Sisters
SISTERS

Is it odd that I want
A sister to call my own
With time caught up like it was in my mind
They all thought we were blood
After a while I did too
Never felt so close to anyone
I'm afraid to find you

The fire was in my hands
I held them from my heart
Sister you almost burned everything
I loved to the ground

I’ve been told that it takes wisdom
And I found I don't want to be old
Sister keep me in your mercies
From the myths I know
They all thought we were blood
After a while I did too
Never felt so close to anyone
I'm afraid to find you
Track Name: Be My Dark
BE MY DARK

You say I don’t care but I care far too much
See the lightning in my stare just gives it away
I speak all the words that wound your failing heart Can’t seem to help myself anymore

We’re together but we’re not together
We’re alone but not alone
So be my dark
My head is a mess after the song we make
I want to hold on to that feeling
That nothing will ever change

But I know what I know
I’ve been down that road before
They say love is pure but I am fickle

We’re together but we’re not together
We’re alone but not alone
So be my dark
Track Name: Flares
FLARES

The tides have washed me out
From the trench I found
In our love
Being dragged away
Now we try to forget it
The memory of being close
Like flares at the scene of an accident we burned

In the great flood
We lost ourselves
With no one to save us
Caught on the mountains

We were wrong but I had my doubts
Until it all went south
Still I couldn’t bear being asked to stay
Now we try to forget it
The memory of being close
Like flares at the scene of an accident we burn

In the great flood
We lost ourselves
With no one to save us
Caught on the mountains
The deluge of guilt reminds me everyday
That we were reckless and now I'm wrecked
Track Name: Hospice
HOSPICE

I was afraid to see the death
Take what I loved
And we couldn't touch you
Held there on that bed

We talked about all you wished for
And Dad wants to call and
I can see in him the sad hope
That maybe someday

With all those Iv’s and wires
It was hard to believe
That you were still with us
Save those kind words

Now you are better
With God and whole
Like before the cancer and before the war

I wasn’t ready to see you in that place
I thought we had more time
I thought we had more days
Track Name: Youth is Wasted on the Young
YOUTH IS WASTED ON THE YOUNG

She wore her Sunday dress
To cover both our tracks
Up to the sewing room
I’m not the one you want to settle down with
Truth be told I don’t tell it

Maybe we could have a baby

I’m just a criminal without a record found
And no intentions of getting old
I'm always running from myself and what I've done
Youth is wasted on the young

Maybe we could have a baby

But God was not impressed
At least that’s what she said
Though I think we tried our best
Well that's the consequence
Of kisses between friends
Track Name: Patmos
PATMOS

Oh my stars I did not miss it
Light of heaven at my door
Open eyes as mine are closed
Touch a world I can’t touch now

The poor in spirit called by name
While death while death
The poor in spirit called by name
While death has lost its sting

Puzzles spoke with great dark thunders
Beggars sit atop gold thrones
Tongues of bright and brightest fire
Light the way for bride and groom

The poor in spirit called by name
While death while death
The poor in spirit called by name
While death has lost its sting
Track Name: Kids in Love II
KIDS IN LOVE II

I miss old friends right now
Though I've grown without them
That day I left for a girl was easy
At least it was back then

I miss our talks on God
And long trips to the city
The world was young and it was ours
Open to us in a way it isn't now

I miss the times we all spent together
In the houses down south
Playing at make believe
And costume parties
(We would) with an eye on tomorrow

I miss old friends and now
I'm feeling cold without them
That day I left, that Sunday morning
Was the day I walked alone

I miss our talks on God
And road trips on the weekends
The world we saw from our hearts and cars
Open to us in a way it isn't now

I miss the times we all spent together
In the houses down South
Playing at make believe
And costume parties
With nothing between us
(We would) with an eye on tomorrow
Track Name: Tenderly, Tenderly
TENDERLY, TENDERLY

I’m going to have a child now
So that you can see at my age what it is
To feel both young and old

I’m going to have a child you know
When she begins to show
I’m going to have a child you know
And I won't let this part go

There is no pale horse coming
There is no pale horse

I’m going to have second thoughts
Under the street light glow
We'll argue at the doctor’s office
In hushed and nervous tones

I’m going to have a child you know
When she begins to show
I’m going to have a child you know
And I won't let this part go

There is no pale horse coming
There is no pale horse

He will have my name
She will have your face
Everything will be like it was

There is a pale horse coming
There is a pale horse

He will have my name
She will have your face
Everything will be like it was
When I look at them and see you
