Track Name: Stitches
Spare me your reasons
for seeing me out
Jar up illusions
for when you begin to doubt

See what you've done here
take a look around
You've pulled at the stitches
and now we're pouring out

How can a lover
make me feel alone
You chose another
lives undone

Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait
Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait
Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait
Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait

... another day
... another day

Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait
Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait
Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait
Ooh ooh
We can't afford to wait

... another day
... another day
... another day
... another day
Track Name: The Sea Inside
My eyes are worn, vision blurred
Sinking in, to the deep
The sea inside is flooding out
Hands are weak but I reach up

I'm seeking you, don't turn from me
I've heard of love unfailing and mercy
I need refuge from the raging sea
Someone to rescue me

Only you can calm the sea inside
Tame the wind and tide
Bring peace to me
Only you can stop the mountain slide
Hold my head up high
And redeem me

This crazy grace, can't get my head around
How a slave like me is worth the fee
The desperate vagrant has been crowned
The empty hand has been given the key

Only you can calm the sea inside
Tame the wind and tide
Bring peace to me
Only you can stop the mountain slide
Hold my head up high
And redeem me

Allelu, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Alleluia
Track Name: Love is Only Love
I see you walking down
the other side of our old city street
Wanna start a conversation
but feeling so defenseless when we meet

Every barstool feels the same
places we've already been
And all the people look the same
like they're living lives they never could've seen

The night that it grew colder
(I remember my)
Head upon your shoulder
(leaving it all behind)
Don't you know I'm sorry
(for all we've been through)
Cuz love is only love
when I'm with you

Thought the walls were getting old
making sounds like someone breaking in
But it was silence taking hold
moving in where kindness used to live

The night that it grew colder
(I remember my)
Head upon your shoulder
(leaving it all behind)
Don't you know I'm sorry
(for all we've been through)
Cuz love is only love
when I'm with you
Track Name: Landmine
You
There was nothing left
And I
I was nothing but a side effect

Of changes wrought by
pithy talk
and fingers wrenched in fear

Of chain events
mock innocence
and plans I would not hear

And this is not the time
No this is not the time
This is not the time
You realize
We're on a landmine

And now
you're not even gonna hesitate
The sea
swallowed up my spirit far too late

And now I'm lost and
counting loss
the curtain's closed again

My heart won't know
its cause of death
before you sewed it in

And this is not the time
No this is not the time
This is not the time
You realize
We're on a landmine
Track Name: Together Apart
Since when did you start coming here
When did you start hanging around for days
You try your best to disappear
while somehow always managing to stay
...to stay...

ooh ooh ooh

Your shadow casts its weight upon
everything that never came to be
Hallways of emptiness
attic spaces filled with mystery

ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

The road that we set foot upon
took us where we couldn't see
the fog between us thickening
cutting off the line from you to me

ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Don't say your name, your name
Don't say your name, your name
Don't say your name, your name
Don't say your name, your name

Don't say your name, your name
Don't say your name, your name
Don't say your name, your name
Don't say your name, your name

ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

ooh ooh ooh

And someday this might turn around
someday there'll be no more moves to make
Baby, we could turn around
see if there's one more thing to say
