Track Name: Asleep
Your eyes are the best of me
but I've changed out all the lights
The clouds cast out over me,
all their lines drawn tight

And You can try to wake me
from the deep

Just because I'm Dreaming
doesn't mean, I'll fall asleep

I thought I was a better man
caught up in my head
You taught me to look around
to see the world before I burnt it down

And You can try to wake me
from the deep

Just because I'm Dreaming
doesn't mean, I'll fall asleep

And You can try to wake me
from the deep

Just because I'm Dreaming
doesn't mean, I'll fall asleep
Track Name: Fox Hollow
Fox Hollow
I found my first love
Near the frosted hills
is where I found him in two

Oh my god, it's really him
Left in ribbons razor thin
but I can see it in his eyes

Oh my only love
out the door with another man
his hands told me I was
a ghost to pass on through

Oh my god, it's really him
Left in ribbons razor thin
but I can see it in his eyes

Oh my god, it's really him
Left in ribbons razor thin
but I can see it in his eyes
Track Name: Lilac Girl
Let me say
I'm sad to see you go
Out into the world
And I'm left here

All this time
I've watched you grow
Like a Lilac in the sun
Purple petals all aglow

If only you could understand
Why I hold this fear inside my hand
I'm scared that if I let you go
I'll live alone and you'll never know

If you want to stick around
You can sell off all that jewelry you've been carrying around
We can go to the antique mall
And get lost in all the records that your dad used to put on

If only you could understand
Why I hold this fear inside my hand
I'm scared that if I let you go
I'll live alone and you'll never know

But if you have to go
I swear I'll be just fine
Our souls are tied together with some
entangled twine

And when we meet again
I'll take you with these same hands
And we'll walk off together
Until the very end

If that's okay

If only you could understand
Why I hold this fear inside my hand
I'm scared that if I let you go
I'll live alone and you'll never know
