Lyrics
In Between Dreams  (2005)
Better Together
Never Know
Banana Pancakes
Good People
No Other Way
Sitting Waiting Wishing
Staple It Together
Situations
Crying Shame
If I Could
Breakdown
Belle
Do You Remember
Constellations

Sleep Through The Static   (2008)
Angel
All At Once
Enemy
Hope
Go On
Adrift

Angel
Iíve got an angel
She doesnít wear any wings
She wears a heart that could melt my own
She wears a smile that could make me want to sing
She gives me presents
With her presence alone
She gives me everything I could wish for
She gives me kisses on the lips just for coming home

She can make angels
Iíve seen it with my own eyes
You got to be careful when you you've got good love
Cause them angels will just keep on multiplying

But you're so busy changing the world
Just one smile can change all of mine
We share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
Oh oh oh oh ohhh
mm mm mm mmmm

All At Once :
All at once
The world
Can't overwhelm me
Theres almost nothin'
That you could tell me
That could ease my mind

Which way will you run
When it's always
All around you
And the feelin' lost
And found you again
A feelin'
That we have no control
Around a song
Some say
There's gonna be
The new hell
Some say
It's still
Too early to tell
Some say
It really
Ain't no myth at all

Keep askin ourselves
Are we really
Strong enough
There's so many things
That we got
Too proud of
We're too proud of
We're too proud of

I wanna take
The preconceived
Out from
Underneath your feet
We could shake it off

Instead
We'll plant some seeds
We'll watch em' as they grow
And with each new beat
From your heart
The roots grow deeper
The branches
Will they reach for what
Nobody really knows
But underneath it all
There's this heart
All alone

What about is gone
And it really
Won't be so long
Sometimes it feels
Like a heart
Is no place
To be singin'
From at all

There's a world
We've never seen
There's still hope
Between the dreams
The weight of it all
Could blow away
With a breeze
If your waitin
On the wind
Don't forget to breathe
Cause as the darkness
Gets deeper
We'll be sinkin
As we reach for love
At least somethin
We could hold
But i'll reach to you
From where time
Just can't go

What about is gone
And it really
Won't be so long
Sometimes it feels
Like a heart
Is no place
To be singin'
From at all

All at once
The world
Can't overwhelm me
Theres almost nothin'
That you could tell me
That could ease my mind

Which way will you run
When it's always
All around you
And the feelin' lost
And found you again
A feelin'
That we have no control
Around a song
Some say
There's gonna be
The new hell
Some say
It's still
Too early to tell

We're too proud of
We're too proud of

Enemy
After we spoke I had a dream that I broke
The teeth from a mouth of a snake
That I choked on the teeth
They were mine all along

I picked up the pieces when I woke
Put them in a boat made of things that I don't want to see
I blew on the sail
Watched it drift out to sea
The further it drifted the closer it came to me
I can't explain

So I took it apart in a billion boxes
There was only one thing
You might think I'm your enemy
But that don't make you mine
And all I have now is above thee
I wish that you'd stop trying
Oh, please stop lying
Stop la la la la la la la
La la la la la...
The hatred in the box then I locked
The strongest one I knew
I buried it all, grew a tree without thorns
Sat beneath the shade
You might think I'm your enemy
But that don't make you mine
And all I have now is above thee
I wish that you'd stop trying
Oh please stop lying
Please stop la la la la la la
La la la la la...
La la la la la...

Hope :

Shadow walks faster than you
You donít really know what to do
Do you think that youíre not alone?
You really think that you are immune to
Its gonna get that the best of you
Its gonna lift you up and let you down
It will defeat you then teach you to get back up
After it takes all that
You learn to love

Your reflection is a blur
Out of focus
But in confusion
The frames are suddenly burnt
And in the end of a roll of illusion
A ghost waiting its turn
Now I see can right through
Itís a warning that nobody heard

It will teach you to love what youíre afraid of
After it takes away all that
You learn to love
But you donít
Always
Have to hold to your head
Higher than your heart

You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better be hoping youíre not soÖ

Du du du
Hope youíre not alone
Hmm hmm humm

Your Ė
Your echo comes back out of tune
Now you can *probably get used to
*Reverb is just a room
The problem is that thereís no truth
It fading way too soon
The shadow is on the move
And maybe you should be moving too
Before it takes away all that you learned to love
It will defeat you and then teach you to get back up
Cause you donít
Always
Have to hold your head
Higher than your heart

You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better be hoping youíre alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not alone
You better hope youíre not soÖ
Du ru ru ru ru
Hope youíre not alone
Hmm hmmm hmmmm
Better hooope
Huuu huuu hmmm
Better hope youíre not alone
Huuu huuu hmmm

Go On

In my rear view
I watch you watching the twilight
Behind the telephone lines
With nothing to prove, or to assume
Just thinking that your thoughts are different than mine
In my rear view
I watch you
And I gave you your life, would you give me mine

I see you slowly swim away
Cause the light is leaving town
To a place that I canít be
But thereís no apologies

Just go on
Just go on
Thereís still so many things
I wanna say to you
But go on
Just go on
Weíre bound by blood thatís moving
From the moment that we start
From the moment that we start

I see your perfect little lies
Watch the shadows of the clouds
And the surface of the ocean out the window of a plane
I get nervous when I fly
Iím used to walking with my feet

Turbulence is like a sigh that I canít help but over think

What is the purpose of my life
If it doesnít ever do
With learning to let it go
Live vicariously through
You could do the same
Itís the least you could do
Cause itís a lonely little chain
If you donít add to it

So go on
Just go on
Thereís still so many things
I wanna say to you
But go on
Just go on
Weíre bound by blood and love
From the moment that we start
Just go on
Just go on
Thereís still so many things
I wanna say to you
Just go on
Just go on
Weíre bound by blood thatís moving
From the moment that we start
From the moment that we start
In my rear view
I watch you watching the twilight
Behind the telephone lines
With nothing to prove, or to assume
Just thinking that your thoughts are different than mine
In my rear view
I watch you
And I gave you your life, would you give me mine

I see you slowly swim away
Cause the light is leaving town
To a place that I canít be
But thereís no apologies

Just go on
Just go on
Thereís still so many things
I wanna say to you
But go on
Just go on
Weíre bound by blood thatís moving
From the moment that we start
From the moment that we start

I see your perfect little lies
Watch the shadows of the clouds
And the surface of the ocean out the window of a plane
I get nervous when I fly
Iím used to walking with my feet

Turbulence is like a sigh that I canít help but over think

What is the purpose of my life
If it doesnít ever do
With learning to let it go

Cause itís a lonely little chain
If you donít add to it

Weíre bound by blood and love
From the moment that we start
Just go on
Just go on
Thereís still so many things
I wanna say to you
Just go on
Just go on
Weíre bound by blood thatís moving
From the moment that we start
From the moment that we start

 

Adrift :

Your voice is adrift I can't expect it to sing to me.
As if I was the only one
I'll follow you, a leaf that's followin' the sun

When will my weight be too much for you?
When will these ideas really be my own?
'Cause this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

This was a scene worth waking up for
When I woke up
You planted me in my own pod
Don't know why, but somehow it just feels so wrong

When you said I will be lonely
When you rise again I'll have become the sun
I'll shine down upon you
As if you were the only one

Your voice is your own I can't protect it
You'll have to sing a verse that no one has ever known
Don't be afraid
Cause no one ever sings alone

Your weight will never be too much for me
Your ideas have always been your own
And this moment keeps on movin'
We were never meant to hold on.....

Your voice is adrift I can't expect it to sing to me.
As if I was the only one
I'll follow you, a leaf that's followin' the sun

When will my weight be too much for you?
When will these ideas really be my own?
'Cause this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

This was a scene worth waking up for
When I woke up
You planted me in my own pod
Don't know why, but somehow it just feels so wrong

When you said I will be lonely
When you rise again I'll have become the sun
I'll shine down apon you
As if you were the only one

Your voice is your own I can't protect it
You'll have to sing a verse that no ones ever known
Cause no one ever sings alone

Your weight will never be too much for me
Your ideas have always be your own
And this moment keeps on movin'
We were never meant to hold on.....
