Track Name: she's still breathing
it's been a long night and all i see
are the things i don't have inside of me
been a long night i wanna go to sleep
can't stop thinking about the things i need
thinking of days when you spoke in my ear
all the words in your throat that i couldn't hear
the look in your eye, that distant stare
on the bathroom floor i found you there

and i said
she's still breathing
she's still breathing
she's still breathing
but please save her

it's been a long night and all my lies
are taking the color from my eyes
been a long night, i wanna tell you
everything i haven't been able to
can't say who i am, can't say what i've done
can't run through the street, my shirt undone
had to lie about what i do
just to seem the same as all of you

and i said
she's still breathing
she's still breathing
she's still breathing
but please save her
Track Name: stitch by stitch
waiting for the sun to go down
so i can sleep alone with what i've found
wrapped inside my pillowcase
and buried behind
all the things i didn't ever want to find

growing older now into a man
but i am still a child, that's what i am
never led the way before
or been out on my own
into the world in front of me
the world in which i was born

but with you i'll be okay
cause every little thing you do
just fills me with happiness
i know i belong with you

trying to ease my mind in a broken world
so i can take what comes without a word
ripples in the ocean tide
dont worry bout being blind
i don't have to be so serious
about everything taking my time

on and on it goes for all my life
it's all that i can do to yield my lines
stitch by stitch this tapestry
comes together in my mind
and the world i find in front of me
is perfectly fine

cause with you i'll be okay
cause every little thing you do
just fills me with happiness
i know i belong with you
i know i belong with you
Track Name: i am king
it's early in the morn' and all i can do is sing
i'm not going anywhere, of this place i am king
this buzzing in my mind is nothing compared to me
is nothing compared to me

my eyes will open wide, hands move impossibly
i'm not giving up on you, please don't give up on me
now i'll do anything so you don't have to weep
no don't you ever weep
Track Name: the smoke we breathe
it's where i want to be
it's where i want to be
it's where i want to be
tonight
if i can find
the will inside

you're lovely as a rose
you're lovely as a rose
kissing on my nose
always
in my eyes
the breath of life

we're following the trains
we're following the heart
we're following the sunset
we know it's wrong
but its alright
it's the smoke we breathe

it's where i want to be
you're lovely as a rose
we're following the trains
and breathing in the smoke

you're lovely as a rose
you're lovely as a rose
you're lovely as a rose
i'm breathing in its smoke
Track Name: off to bed
so she reached for you and made
for you and made a quiet hum
she looked at you, now she had to weave
through the man you know you ought to be
and you thought something would break
if you touched her tonight
but you knew her voice would loose
her voice would loosen your belt

she nodded
she nodded
she nodded
she nodded
he thought words sounded hollow
he thought words sounded hollow
the burning came into his eyes and said
you fool, take her off to bed

the tenderness in her voice that she had
when she put her hand on your forehead
so you reached for her and said
for her and said forever

she nodded
she nodded
she nodded
she nodded
he thought words sounded hollow
he thought words sounded hollow
the burning came into his eyes and said
you fool, take her off to bed
