Track Name: Home For The Winter
So used to the raindrops on my head
It’s been so long since I slept in my own bed
Waking up to the tiredness in my bones
I’ve been spending the past months on my own
So I know that I’m coming home

Heading home for the winter

Bite my tongue, never say it straight
'Cause I try so hard to appreciate
The mystery of the winter fog
The overcast has turned me cold
So I know that I’m coming home

Heading home for the winter

We leave for the winter, migrate down south
We'll be leaving with our wings tied back

No regrets, eyes on the road
We coast along these yellow lines

And soon we roll, down the sixteenth
Marking each turn in our minds

And this one time, I won't be looking back
I'm heading home

Heading home for the winter
Track Name: Consequences
You don't know he's half of what you are
Does the wine decide how you feel
Or does it help you dig up the truth
I don't know what you want
Do you know what you want

But you let him into your heart
It hasn't changed at all from the start
It's so hard to let go
Why's it so hard to let go

You don't understand these consequences
You don't know he's half of what you are

And you run back out to his door
And he’s there with a smirk on his face
He lies and says he’s sorry
But you know he’s not sorry

But you run back there every night
And you leave before the first light
You say you’re used to it
But I know you’re sick of it

You don't understand these consequences
You don’t
You don't understand these consequences
Track Name: Old Songs
Do you recall
The songs that we once sang
And every tune
Reminds me more of you

And the first time that our eyes met on the floor, I couldn't ignore
The need to smile, and so I do, and you met me with your sweet laugh

And I leave town
For a month or two
And everywhere
Those songs still haunt me

The kind that leaves you with a bittersweet memory, I couldn’t forget
The need to smile, and so I do, and you meet me with your sweet laugh
I want to say, thank you for the good times and the memories

When I return, you move in and leave it behind
And now we're here with a guitar
We will sing
We still sing

We will sing, we still sing the same old songs
Track Name: Line
You and I, we drew a line
With turns and loops left undefined
You and I, we made a pact
We twist the truth until it was fact

It was only in sand, only written in sand

You and I, we built a fire
We watched it burn until it was higher
You and I, we watched it grow
Was it love, we won't know

It was only in sand, only written in sand

You and I, we drew a line
It was only in sand, only written in sand
Track Name: Why Must I Go
My limbs are glued to the bed
My eyes are sealed with fatigue
A restless rush, another start
Of a maze I’ve yet to part

Why must I go?
We’ll never know

Papers and pens don’t get it done
The memories, they weigh a ton
Will our eyes learn to realise
That life is just a grand surprise

Why must I go?
We’ll never know

We don’t wanna go back
To this place we have called home

Why must I go?
We’ll never know
Track Name: The Seed
There’s a portrait drawn of you
By an old man who doesn’t know you
I warned you to fear the darkness
You don’t heed it until you’re haunted

Oh, take my crown
Oh, take my pride

Your choices worked against mine
They were clouded by an old scar
Before I run home to my father
I remind you to find your roots

Oh, take my crown
Oh, don't lose your pride

As the guilt runs through your veins
And the thorns slide around your neck
You were saved by kin and water
And reminded to take your sword

Oh, take my crown
Oh, don't lose your pride
Track Name: Kimberly
Oh Kimberly
You are so lovely

Your silver tongue always finds the words
To make me feel like I'm on my throne
Your loving arms always give me warmth
And hold me tight through the coldest night

Oh Kimberly
You are so lovely

In other words you're a pocket full of sunshine
Don't get mad at me for singing such a dumb line
You deserve a little more appreciation
‘Cause with you around I feel the need for celebration

Oh Kimberly
You are so lovely
Track Name: My Spring Your Fall
I told you that spring was a time for constant growth
And you warned me that petals would only fade from now

You were right
When we close our eyes, we take a breath and count our luck

I was the optimist, I outweighed all the cons with the pros
And you were a realist, you outweighed my pros with the truth

You were right
When we close our eyes, we take a breath and count our luck

It was my spring and your fall
You look at me like it’s all my fault

You were right
And when we close our eyes, we take a breath and count our luck
