Track Name: Indigo
We were at the beach drinking limeade
Before the storm hit the first tree
I never would have guessed
How you would be I started to panic

I grabbed your hand wrapped around mine
I kicked the sand and we ran
For cover
For shade
Something to keep the rain away

Cause I won't let you go
I won't let you go
I won't let you go
I won't let you go

Summers too far away
I need you by my side
I feel so selfish to want you
But you are all I got
So please don't go
I can't even live to see you go
Don't even talk to me
Signal me
Or let me in on anything but love
That's how I get through my days
I love you

April break cut the first lines
You held the rope that tied the bind
In my hair and in my heart
For nothing could ever be a strong
As you
I lay down the first eyes
I ever gave or ever will
You hold the boy who will never find love again
And will always love you

I won't let you go
I won't let you go

Summers too far away
I need you by my side
I feel so selfish to want you
But you are all I got
So please don't go
I can't even live to see you go
Don't even talk to me
Signal me
Or let me in on anything but love
That's how I get through my days
I love you
Track Name: Prescott
To the park today
Jane's gonna be there
Never mind my shallow heart
Beating for the words
I won't ever let you go

And how I follow you
Doesn't matter to me
The ocean breathes the cold back onto me
And you do everything to make me happy
Below the forest I'm sleeping light
Through the sky she's flying high

And Katherine
She winds my book for me
Candles lit the isle down my spine
I never read that book in time

How do you see
You're gone

And how I follow you
Doesn't matter to me
The ocean breathes the cold back onto me
And you do everything to make me happy
Below the forest I'm sleeping light
Through the sky she's flying high
Below the forest I'm sleeping light
Through the sky she's flying high
Track Name: Fifty
Friday morning I turn off my alarm
The sheets unfold my naked legs to put the floor to shoe
And morning food to savor our last goodbye
Maybe forever won't seem so bad in the light of required new

And what are your plans for the next four months
You can't tell me you don't have a solid job
One's ok but two is the best
Paint a picture of your open mind
Now tell me how much of it you'll let me in
How much you'll let me rest

Sitting there depressed
They broke up and I care
How Hard is it to see the light of day

Coffee rings the bus that I get off
Allston puts the water to my mouth
Friends forgive and friends forget
It's not like I won't ever see you again
Your band is climbing up the ladder
I'm impressed and getting sadder

Sitting still depressed
He shuts down and I care
How hard is it to see the light of say

Walking down the halls my vibe is low
Empty out my thoughts of the year, what could of been what should have been
In all my mind I said my last goodbye
The whitest paint chips the indecision, to leave behind perform excision

Still he's so depressed
She left him I've been there
Carry on they say
It's only harder when you push it all away
Track Name: Fresher Cuts
Waves are kicking up the grass again
I'd tell you how much I dig you if I wasn't such a prick
Maybe the sun will set before the rain
Maybe your blue eyes will find mine again

You seem down
Waste away your tears
You seem down
Bring me your heart

Seconds add to aspiration
Of finding you before I hate myself
Enough to not want to go on anymore
But you are there
Right next to me
I'm waiting for the right moment
I'm waiting for the stars to align just right
I'm waiting for that perfect sunset
When all my fears go away

Why am I
Why am I
Digging the dirt
For you
Track Name: April
I'm not
Myself
Lately
My motivation's
Gone out the window

Your surely not the first
You surely last that I'll tell

My head is spinning in circles
The fights go long
My heart burns indigo

And through my looking glass
The world can't be so out of it I swear

There's no easy way to say I've been doing wrong
But I've had enough of me
I can't escape I don't have you right now
You've gone to bed, I couldn't wake you up

I've never felt so alone before
Yet never cried so hard I missed
The other side of me to the most
I can't run away
Track Name: Datura
People tend to throw money at the world
From gold to bronze to paper in fact

Pay what you will

People tend to lose their mind in debt
From work to news to family at best

Pay what you will
Track Name: Jackson
In Jackson New Hampshire
I learned to ski
And nothing felt harder than the ice

In the mornings we'd pack
Our bags so we'd never leave
The mountain and all its paths

Heavy on the rain
Maybe it was signaling some change

The next year we didn't go back to Jackson
Because the house was no longer ours to use

So we heard the tales of Tuckerman Ravine
And how my uncle named his newborn kid after the slope

And maybe all was fine
And maybe we'd return to our routine

And family gathering brought us closer together
Jackson hadn't been spoken in years

Until my uncle introduced us to a member of our own family

A little pup that rode the roads
From Alabama north to New Hampshire
And I didn't know how much he'd mean to us
(or anyone at all)
Hell I was still a kid
(still a kid)
But even then
I knew there'd be a time
When he would live another life outside our own

And Jackson the dog
The spirit now that walks above us all
He always seemed to help forget

The life you live by day so you be with him
And like the skis I wore when I was younger he will come and go
But never be forgotten
He'll never be forgotten

Jackson
Track Name: Iris
I scared about tomorrow
The rain is coming back and signaling more change
And I can't hold your hand from here
But you have my heart and I threw away the key

And maybe we'll find hope
Crashing through the waves off the coast

And we had it all
Out for good
Why won't I let the lake overflow

Water sinks into the back of my throat
I couldn't breathe if I wanted to
You float empty my heart swims disturbed

And maybe we'll find hope
Crashing through the waves off the coast

And we had it all
Out for good
Why won't I let the lake overflow

And we had it all
Out for good
Why won't I let the lake overflow
Track Name: Grab 'Em Boards
Get up at dawn
Gonna miss the first wave
You've shown me love before
The day shines bright

You see what
I couldn't be
When your gone
Please allow me

Hope it's what
Keeps me strong
How could I
Ever fall back down

New acquaintances
Make me regret what killed the old
Ones
What never would have been in love

I'm in love with you
Track Name: Midwest
All the way from San Francisco
You breath life into my eyes
We're all waiting for you to try
And even though
I might still
Try to find away around you
I found it hard to let you down

And can't you just quiet down and let me explore the world once
Push me toward the end of an era let me shine through a new one

And I bought two plane tickets to Chicago
Let undress your eyes
underneath The skyline where buildings meet
And I was born
And heavy stars light my load
Beneath warm cut woolen coats
And soon I won't be cold again

You flew an hour home just to see me
I still remember the look in your eyes
Searching for the skies
Nothing beats touch downs to kissing throats
Unbelievable wins to life unknown
But you, I really know you

And can't you just quiet down and let me explore the world once
Push me toward the end of an era let me shine through a new one

And I bought two plane tickets to Chicago
Let undress your eyes
underneath The skyline where buildings meet
And I was born
And heavy stars light my load
Beneath warm cut woolen coats
And soon I won't be cold again

I'm really glad I didn't stay home
I'm really glad you came and found me
Lost in your eyes
