Track Name: Let it Go
wave, wave, wave, wave goodbye
sigh
get into the car, prepare to drive
rain, rain, rain on my window
pain
you are walkin back to your doorway
oh, settling back in
is hard when you are underneath my skin

i go, go, go on down the road
hidin in the comfort of the shadow
that is the grey of this day
and wonder why it's so familiar
oh, 9-5 is callin
but you're still crawlin underneath my skin

learn
let it go
everything's in shambles but wonderfully so
learn
let it go
everything's in shambles but wonderfully so

well here i am, seven and a half hours after
my hallway haunts me with your laughter
and on my walls the words are written
the floors are percussion for the
melody the faucet wines
it's time for me to turn in
and dream
of how it is to live
when you

learn
let it go
everything's in shambles but wonderfully so
learn
let it go
everything's in shambles but wonderfully so
Track Name: Give Thanks
light through the trees
darkness in me
now elevating
now i see
i am rising
find my ground
soil sound
i can plant here
dirt under my toenails
it's difficult at first
when you've been laying there
come on, legs, work
put this off for too long
time to face it

and
a change is coming my way
a change is coming my way
a change is coming my way
give thanks
give thanks

breaking through ice
recover from longest night
the spring came with you
and i am rising
you understand, baby
take my hand
live inside the wind
no matter the surrounders
their thoughts
their inability to see
they won't bog me down this time, no

cause i can feel
a change is coming my way
a change is coming my way
a change is coming my way
give thanks
give thanks
Track Name: Gemini
forgot about spring
it does get green
how many Octobers did i live through
before
i can't quite figure
how i'd deliver
my thoughts through this pen
when i love you more
than all the words

and it's you
you, you
you, you
that i long for

feelin' strange
i can see me goin' down
life will never be enough
when it comes to
spendin' it with you, you, you
you can't
you can't hold this
you.. you can't
you can't know this
it's intangible and
random, it
goes right past my brain
tunneling deeper
and i can't explain
but you unravel me

and it's you
you, you
you, you
now i live for

and i am drawn to your flame
but you rest on me like i'm a flower
it's inevitable pain
but i just keep floating closer
can't turn away
your light, your heat gets stronger
but i'd give up on grey life
to die in your wonder

Track Name: We
last night we
in release
and repair
out on the town
would be
typical friday
pizza, movie
but
irate man was asked to leave the restaurant
and the film questioned we

and so drift
to skyline
and wine
i've lost my way
but you
stand so strong
beside me
... (there's an) intoxicated young doctor
preachin' bout socialized medicine
but your eyes...

and the sounds drown out
the sounds drown out
oh, we willl be the difference
we will be the difference in my life
we will be the difference
we will be the difference in my life
