Track Name: Solstice
In the season of white
Hare across the meadow's eye
The breathless wind, tearing at the snowy sky

Were you good enough?
Was it all you need?

It's the darkest day
Icicles fell out of place
Frosted windows
Cracking at your fingertips

Were you good enough?
Was it all you need?
Were you good enough?
Was it all you need?
Track Name: The Bridge
Winter comes in circles
Ice on every tree

Snowflakes fall around me
a light on the evergreen

and it was too cold out
for every bit of you
to stand up in

Sliding on the two lane oh
falling towards the river's end
and freezing

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah oh

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah oh

Winter goes in circles
spinning on the edge of the leaves

drowning in the water
windows where I couldn't see

and it was too cold out
for every bit of you
to stand up in

Sliding on the two lane oh
falling towards the river's end
and freezing

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah oh

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah oh
Track Name: Halo
say you went last night
just to be there
with all the lights left on
like a halo for your hand

it makes me scream
dream it once over
like your ring
untold as sober

is it true, was it you, was it like you once imagined?

look me in the eyes
just one more time
it’s hard to meet your gaze
but it’s worthy and it’s kind

it makes me scream
dream it once over
like your teeth
untold as sober

is it true, was it you, was it like you once imagined?
Track Name: Re: Morse
on the shore I held my breath as the fog seeped in
inhale what’s left, a break from the last girl’s friend

it’s low when the light’s came up behind
you know all their shadows are undefined
on a four-star night

as I stay and pour from stone in a hospital gown
the flowers in bed but last night there’s no one around

it’s low when the light’s came up behind
you know all their shadows are unrefined
on a four-star night

it’s low when the light’s came up behind
you know all their shadows are undefined
on a four-star night
Track Name: Melanie
If I was so tired of being afraid
I would do something about it
I would do something about it

have you caught up on last night’s paper
there’s two dead on the floor
but they’re not here anymore

Melanie, don’t you go
walking out and down the road
the cars are out to get you tonight

when the handle clicks don’t get in
your bloody blouse and brand new friends will kill you in coal creek canyon

it’s mine, a word worthless but better with time
and maybe this ones a sign
maybe this ones a sign

coarse, your hands cut me with sandpaper skin
and earths right but we haven’t been friends
she’s right but we haven’t been friends

Melanie, don’t you go
walking out and down the road
the cars are out to get you tonight

when the handle clicks don’t get in
your bloody blouse and brand new friends
They kill you
They kill you
They kill you

Melanie, don’t you go
walking out and down the road
the cars are out to get you tonight

when the handle clicks don’t get in
your bloody blouse and brand new friends
They kill you
They kill you
They kill you
Track Name: Vanishing Trick
you’re cutting off your hair now
cause you can’t hide here anymore
a little tired from the war

and the bruises lasting longer on your arms
it’s a bitter battle up the hill
to wait until the time stands still

have you ever been lost for so long?
wonder if I’ll find the road you’re on
is your face lit up by the cold light
when all the blinds are closed?
they’re always closed

you’re writing for the last time on your own
you’d never see again
just a little bit different

and the world’s gone black but it doesn’t cross your mind
you can’t miss them more than like before
the flames burnt out the final score

have you ever been lost for so long?
wonder if I’ll find the road you’re on
is your face lit up by the cold light
when all the blinds are closed?
they’re always closed
Track Name: Clouds
A ghost before you died
and like a fool
in the cold
I wrapped you in the light
to keep you warm
outside

are you really gonna run away
from it now
footprints in the snow
can I feel your hands reaching out
to me now
all I have to give you
are the clouds

once you’re out of sight
like the moon
on it’s way
reflecting on the night
a memory cold
on it’s own

are you really gonna run away
from it now
footprints in the snow
can I feel your hands reaching out
to me now
all I have to give you
are the clouds

Oh to know you
I wander how this could have gone

are you really gonna run away
from it now
footprints in the snow
can I feel your hands reaching out
to me now
all I have to give you
are the clouds
