Track Name: follow you around
I'm still following ghosts I'm still racing around
I can't find my way home I got lost in the sound
But I would be a fool If I had to be a fool I would for you
And I would follow you around And make you see Your love is safe with me

I'm still faking my way through this life that we've made.
I'm still fighting the tide. Its not my fate to fade.
Even though that I would be a fool If I had to be a fool I would for you
And I would follow you around And make you see Your love is safe with me
And we belong together
we belong together
we belong together
Track Name: sleepwalking
Summer is gone don't know where the days went
Me and my friends descend into basements
When we were kids we did things the same way
Queen of the street and ghost of the midway

We come together to hold each other up
Broken guitars and wine from paper cups

Cmon come on
Sometimes you feel the pain of everyone
Sometimes you feel like you're the only one
Sleepwalking in the mid day sun

We came apart
Everyone said it was a work of art
16 bit troubles for my 8 bit heart
A mad mission from the very start

2
I'm moving slow so everyone wonders
Nothing could break the spell that I'm under
Love is a map of stars and I'm lost in the words on the page I can't get across.

And if I could I know we'd be just fine
I get no sleep but I'm dreaming all time

Cmon come on
This is the story of a town gone wrong
And we're together cause we don't belong
And everyone we used to know is gone

We came apart
Everyone said it was a work of art
16 bit troubles for my 8 bit heart
A mad mission from the very start

Instro

Bridge: (in 3/4)
Who was it that said
That death is the remedy
Nearly all singers dream of?
Well, let that be my elegy

Cmon come on
Sometimes you feel the pain of everyone
Sometimes you feel like you're the only one
Sleepwalking in the mid day sun

We came apart
Everyone said it was a work of art
16 bit troubles for my 8 bit heart
A mad mission from the very start

Cmon come on
This is the story of a town gone wrong
And we're together cause we don't belong
And everyone we used to know is gone

We came apart
Everyone said it was a work of art
16 bit troubles for my 8 bit heart
A mad mission from the very start
Track Name: memoir of a lightning bolt
did you ask for forgiveness?
girl, are we still in business?
when he says that he loves you
do you feel like a mistress?
will you think of me sometimes?
when you're hiding from the sunshine?
are we following a secret code?
are we having a good time?
exiled on the east side
wind blowing in a minor key
what will you write about?
when you write about you and me?

i'm a miner for a heart of gold
getting ready to relapse
sleepwalking through the city streets
the economic collapse
sinking deeper in the concrete
sea typewriter of doom
memoir of a lightning bolt
violins in the bedroom
in a galaxy of sad eyes
with a legacy of wind and dust
what will you write about?
when you write about us?

shadow of a man, shadow of a man
hold out for a new romance
shadow of a man, shadow of a man
fall under an avalanche
shadow of a man, shadow of a man
it's much too late to turn back now

last chance for a good time
new clothes for the monarchy
what will you write about?
when you write about you and me?
in a galaxy of sad eyes
with a legacy of wind and dust
what will you write about?
when you write about us?
Track Name: stranger flowers
i love your radio show
the kind of songs you play
the way you talk real slow
i love the way you say
"we just heard the title track from the new juliet and abel.
it's called a symphony of wildfire out on the tramp star label."
and every word rings true
every streetlight shines for you
on the day we met
i couldn't help but stare
the way you wore your clothes
and how you'd cut your hair
at the seaside bar
you were dancing with your punk rock boy
i was playing guitar
well i was making noise
springtimes coming on
it feels just like my favorite song
we're all stranger flowers now
there's a place where we belong

we've got all this worn out joy and we get no sleep at night
but it's morning and we're bending towards the light

springtimes coming on
it feels just like my favorite song
we're all stranger flowers now
there's a place where we belong
Track Name: behind the blue
i heard the kick drum and the melody
but it doesn't compensate for company
so i threw out my confession like it was a mixtape of a memory
there's an exodus upon us now from the outside looking in
and it's a song about a super 8 a short story of a violin
and it's a long hard road ahead
i don't know what we're gonna do
but if you're holding out for me
i'll be holding out for you
at sunset there's a marching band that plays the requiem for radio
and the patron saint of electric light sings a song on the last stereo
me i'm singing with these sailors now your mother loves a man in uniform
when i was shipwrecked on the shoreline she was my shelter from the storm
and i won't forget the thing she said
it hit me like a bolt of blue
i hope you're holding out for me
cause i've been holding out for you
i'm in a place that i don't recognize
fighting in a civil war
and every night i close my eyes
and i feel more lonely than the night before
i wanna smash in every tv set to hear the wind come whistling through
i wanna cut through all the LCD's
i wanna see the blue behind the blue
i wanna graduate to more than just the sleepy crash of nine to five
i wanna be the one to show you how to feel a little more than just alive
when you were young you dreamed your dreams
some faded away and some came true
and if you're holding out for me i'll be holding out for you
i'll be holding out for you
Track Name: sunday matinee
i met all your friends today
i couldn't think of anything to say
everybody seemed so lonely
but we could play our bad day down
hide behind a wall of sound
communicate with our our eyes only

and we're alone we're alone when we're together we're alone and we don't wanna stay here but we can't go home
and there's so much we've lost along the way
but your the sweetheart of the rodeo
the queen of the all ages show
i saw you at the sunday matinee

you're everything that i'm not
drinking in the parking lot
and then we hear the band start up and then we rush inside
and when the bass drops out and the singer screams and shouts you say "this is that song that i was talking about."
you push your hair behind your ears and you close your eyes

and when you lean in close
when tell me it's the part you love the most
and you pull me out into the light
i don't care about the song
but i could watch you listen all night long
and i feel fine i feel alright i feel alright
Track Name: the lion and the lamb
in the morning i was walking where the ocean meets the land
i was thinking about the lion
i was thinking about the lamb
i guess i hoped you'd see the truth that i disguised inside these lines
i hoped that i could take your blues and make them mine

i'm feeling listless
i'm shiftless i don't know what to do
i've got no religion
but you
but times gonna change us
we're never gonna feel this way again
so lets let the candle
burn at both ends

i was caught up in the moment
i was safe inside the sound
i could see the castles burning
i didn't let it bring me down
but now my record players broken
and my blankets on the floor
and i can't tell which way i'm turning anymore

there was a moment
i wasn't feeling anything at all
i was the sound between heartbeats
i was the ghost in the hall
everything changes
when i was in the basement making noise
and my fears unraveled into joy

i used to think
i could go on this way forever now i know
it's now or never

i'm feeling listless
i'm shiftless i don't know what to do
i've got no religion
but you
but times gonna change us
we're never gonna feel this way again
c'mon let the candle
burn at both ends
there was a moment
i wasn't feeling anything at all
i was the sound between heartbeats
i was the ghost in the hall
everything changes
when i was in the basement making noise
and my fears unraveled into joy

i used to think
we could go on....
Track Name: closing scene
you could storm through a wasteland, believe what you want to believe
set your sails on a ship that could carry you over the sea
you could fold paper airplanes that fly to the edge of the world
close your eyes and imagine a beautiful girl

maybe i bet my future on the dreams i chased
but you traded your dreams for a safe safe place
and i don't feel free
and you don't feel safe
now the colors are flashing in a fever dream
and the tension in building for the closing scene
and i miss the way
that we used to be

there is no security
there are no mistakes
there is only destiny
there is only fate

you stayed home for weeks with your records alone in your room
so i said "let's go out cause it's springtime, the world is in bloom."
and we can go walking the backstreets we once knew so well
i can still hear the sound of the church tower bells

what if i bet my future on the dreams i chased
you traded your dreams for a safe safe place
you've got your fears
i've got my faith
now the colors are flashing on your tv screen
and your senses unravel in a fever dream
and i miss the way
that we used to be.

there is no security
there are no mistakes
there is only destiny
there is only fate

i know it's been a long hard year
i know your days are filled with doubt
but you missed out on all the joy when you were looking for the noise
to drown tomorrow out
Track Name: hard times for dreamers
When the cold wind blows
We raise up our sails
When there is no wind we row
Hard times for dreamers
But our hearts prevail
And we shine that light
Everywhere we go
Hard times for dreamers
Burning the days
With these seasick sailors
And the castaways
Bedroom apostles
And the methadone strum
Magnolia blossoms
In the setting sun
When the cold wind blows
We raise up our sails
When there is no wind we row
Hard times for dreamers
But our hearts prevail
And we shine that light
Everywhere we go
For the bones of Brooklyn
I sang an elegy
For the apparition
And the cavalry
Farewell now, Romeo
Bye baby blue
Don't let these hard times
Get the best of you
And when the cold wind blows
We raise up our sails
When there is no wind we row
Hard times for dreamers
But our hearts prevail
And we shine that light
Everywhere we go
