Track Name: The Pacific
these days i don't feel at home
and i'm missing my soul
she took it across the pacific
but i'll be just fine
no she wasn't the right one
to keep me from fading away
who will keep us from fading away?

another long day
california's sun is shining
i'm hiding under neon and brick
as she's crying
"am i gonna be fine?"
"cause i don't feel alright"
what's to stop me from dying today?
who will keep us from fading away?

our friends they aren't well
there's no safety in hell
from the bullets that tear them apart
oh, their mothers, they cry
saying "tell me a lie"
say my baby is coming home soon
tell me they will be coming home soon

another long day
california's sun is shining
i'm hiding under neon and brick
as she's crying
"am i gonna be fine?"
"cause i don't feel alright"
what's to stop me from dying today?
who will keep us from fading away?

i've lost my mind again
and it's no use to pretend
that i'm anywhere near to alright
"oh, but the pain never lasts"
"and this too, shall pass"
she says, "give me your hand, you'll be fine"
oh, you know i want more than "just fine"

another long day
california's sun is shining
i'm hiding under neon and brick
as she's crying
"am i gonna be fine?"
"cause i don't feel alright"
what's to stop me from dying today?
who will keep us from fading away?
Track Name: Numb
i'm sinking so fast
and i can't see the sun
if i wasn't so weak
i'd go swallow that gun
the whiskey will do
just to soak through my brain
this must be the feeling
of going insane

i try to hold it together
with you on that line
if you start to ask questions
i'll just swear that i'm fine

but i am just a car wreck
a miserable disaster
i'm fighting with the words that won't come
the city here is burning
the ashes, they are falling
and i'm doing anything to feel numb
just to feel numb

now the panic's burned out
i'm lying flat on the foor
but the sadness, it lingers
'cause i've been drinking alone
you know i can't love you
i would just break your heart
my walls they don't stand no more
honey, i've just fallen apart

but i am just a car wreck
a miserable disaster
i'm fighting with the words that won't come
the city here is burning
the ashes, they are falling
and i'm doing anything to feel numb
just to feel numb
Track Name: Stay
there she rolls over in bed
and wakes me up too soon
but i don't mind one little bit
as the sun breaks through the room
i'll play all of your favorite songs
if you just say you'll stay
right here, just stay

seoul it looks so far away
so foreign and confused
i dread the day when my phone rings
for you to share the news
i'll write down every word you say
if you just say you'll stay
right here, just stay

don't leave me with the postcard trails
cause i need everything/cause i need all of you
i'm losing sleep in my hotel
no matter i sing/no matter what i do

well i got lost and you got high
foolish ways and tired eyes
but you weren't lying, were you babe?
when you said you'd break my heart someday
now i'm living here all alone
and waiting for that unknown
but i...

been acting funny lately
you say that you're confused
i'll give you all the time you need
cause i know we've both been bruised
i'll never wake you from your dreams
if you just say you'll stay
right here, just stay

I'm always up too god damn late
i drink myself to sleep
i know we were an accident
we took that sudden leap
but i'll be there when you need me most
if you just say you'll stay
right here, just stay

well i got lost and you got high
foolish ways and tired eyes
but you weren't lying, were you babe?
when you said you'd break my heart someday
now i'm living here all alone
and waiting for that unknown
but i...
Track Name: Without You
i want to thank you
for breaking my heart
cause all of that waiting
was tearing me apart
i think about you on the drive home
oh honey you're all i need
wish i knew what you were thinking
when you decided on leaving me

it's gonna be a long, lonely road
without you girl
oh, my love, didn't stand one chance
living in your world

i can't say that i blame you
you know that i can come on strong
hope you know that i couldn't help it
cause i'd been waiting for you all along
i stare up at the night's sky
wonder where you are and where you'll be
sure as hell, i'm gonna miss you
but i'd be a god damn shame if you went missing me

It's gonna be a long, lonely road
without you girl
oh, my love, didn't stand one chance
living in your world
Track Name: Signs & Motions
she says sing it louder babe
i just want to hear your voice
looks like the dead-end kids are happy for once
i think you might be winning
but honey i ain't keeping score
even through all of my doubts, i just need her more

in between her signs and motions
lies a noisy, stirring notion
she sings along with all my careful words
believing somehow they're not her's

she says i want to give you space
but wednesday looks so far away
baby do you even love me anymore?
cheap champagne it clouds her mind
oh we've been here a hundred-thousand times
i'll be right there with you like i was every time before

in between her signs and motions
lies a noisy, stirring notion
she sings along with all my careful words
believing somehow they're not her's

with these damn unsteady hands
i clear a space for her to land
heads falling slow to the pillowcase
her heart beats fast chasing mine
worried eyes betray her mind
it's written all over her face

in between her signs and motions
lies a noisy, stirring notion
she sings along with all my careful words
believing somehow they're not her's
Track Name: Brake Lights
the brake lights wash the highway red
i get so lost inside my head
she's sleeping sound across my arm
i'm so afraid of doing her harm
thought that i was gonna have to fake it
i sure wasn't expecting this
but when the sky turns blue again tomorrow
i'm so afraid she's gonna go

don't get too close
do not let me in
i will let you down
i will let you down

the heat, it keeps us up at night
sweat down her neck but out of sight
sheets and clothes, they're littering the floor
i feel my way out through the door
i pick my shoes up with my clothes
i think i know how this one goes
don't you fall in love, don't let her know
cause then leaving only hurts that much more

don't get too close
do not let me in
i will let you down
i will let you down
Track Name: I'm All Yours
when are you coming home?
there's nothing else i want more
then i said "oh my god, oh my god"
"i'm telling you, i can't believe i'm telling you"

i'm all yours

where we go from here
is out of my hands
then i said "oh my god, oh my god"
"i'm telling you, i can't believe i'm telling you"

i'm all yours
Track Name: Everything
i wake up early to the rain
you turn over again
just open your eyes
i want this to be
every single day
and you won't wonder why

there is nothing else like this
you are the only one

i want you could see all of your light
it's the only thing that's keeping me alive
i want you to know everything
everything you mean to me

i am where i want to be
for once in my life
and i don't feel alone
we pass an empty parade
it's only you and me
i think i'll call this home

there is nothing else like this
you are the only one

i want you could see all of your light
it's the only thing that's keeping me alive
i want you to know everything
everything you mean to me
Track Name: The Breakdown
honey are we just being fools?
thinking this world gives a damn about me and you?
i'm willing to give it a shot if you are
but i know this life can be so hard

i've got my guitar and you've got your lens
no, it ain't a lot, this we just can't pretend
if we stay the course, never let it go
we might stand a chance to turn out gold

someday we're gonna find out
we're all we've got
there's just the waiting now
it's all about the breakdown

honey are we just getting old
running straight through winter, bittersweet and cold
now the sun stays shining right through our window
but i can't help but wondering out loud, just how this goes

you swear it over, heart on your sleeve
"lover you're the only one for me"
got my heart beating, can you hear it loud?
i'm still searching for those satellites, lost and found

someday we're gonna find out
we're all we've got
there's just the waiting now
it's all about the breakdown
