You can cry your crocodile tears I’ll be dancing happily over here I know this is nowhere near Where we’d thought we’d be But between you and me We’re here Moving forward I swear i’m Making much more sense Of all the little things That have always come between The mystery and the obvious You can choose to hold it deep inside For the sake of your pride There’s not a lot of room in there to hold Decades of stories to be told They’re bound to come out tenfold Moving forward I swear i’m Making much more sense When it comes down to Choosing me or you The answer now is obvious Go through all the obstacles Trip on all the wires You’re bound to discover something For your mind to catch on fire Moving forward I swear i’m Making much more sense Of all the little things That have always come between The mystery and the obvious

January 02:36 video
by the time spring rolls around you already start to forget the darkness of january and how cold winter can get but your eyes still hang so heavy against the later sun keep pushing through the days that fall so long you come undone you are undone i think that you could kill me, it wouldn't be a surprise everything we had's lead up to this, it was always there in your eyes and i'm fighting off your demons like i fight the urge to cry don't want to show you any weakness, don't want to have to hide and the trees become so green and the earth no longer white and the january cold lives only inside our lives and when you're sleeping i can feel you like the sun you're dreaming and i'm seeing you've finally let yourself come undone you are undone
3.
The Scenery 02:27
i've never seen the scenery the way i see you and i'm always wondering how you see me too and i don't recognize myself when I'm with you no i don't recognize myself cold out the doors i'm floored by the way you get me thinking about the things we've never done and your hands press the right amount against my back and my arms and all around me could this be what it means lost in the morning light through your bedroom window i hold on tight warm in your arms all i am is parts i never see the scenery the way i see you thinking about the things we've never done

Madrid 03:19 video
My money is all spent And that’s just the way it is And if I had a dollar for every time I said that I’d be on a plane to Madrid Or down to Casablanca Or a beach in the Bahamas Baby, we could go to the moon and back Anywhere you wanna get lost Oooh but I’ll hold you in this room, dear Oooh there’s no place like here The curtains hide the busy street Outside of the window If we can’t see them, they can’t see us so Anything goes We can dance like no one’s watching On cheap liquor or too much coffee The time of day never gets in the way Of the times when you impress me Oooh I’ll hold you in this room, dear Oooh there’s no place like here Take me away... Oooh but I’ll hold you in this room, dear Oooh there’s no place like here

A Clearing 03:22
hey you know where this is going you've been down this road before and all the signs are showing up they're showing up and you know how to get out of it but you will never get out of it because you kinda like it because you kinda... hey all the weeds and rocks are clearing and as you're glancing in the mirror you're not familiar with what you're seeing there's a look of certainty that's never been there before no, it's never been there before no, it's never... so bring on all the changes you once thought that they would end it all you're a million times more vulnerable but stronger than you ever thought and everything that is happening is not everything you are there's so much more about you there's so much more...
6.
Nothing lasts forever not even you and me not even summer Sundays or that cool autumn breeze not this house we lived in or the grass that surrounds not even the way you looked at me when it all came crumbling down no, nothing lasts forever except that one certainty that everything will end one day like it did for you and me
7.
coming out to see me today and i'm okay coming out to break me today and i'm okay go on and hate me today that's okay it's just the way it goes today what do we do with all of this happening? nothing is happening but everything's happening, happening, happening stuck in a loop we gotta abide this though we are right about to burst at the seams we could all use a little distraction
8.
You’re gonna destroy me I know this already  And I’ll never live it down Love your love will get the best of me It’s the deepest sea And I’m willing to drown Caught in your wake I know everything’s at stake And I love not knowing what to expect Wrapped up in you I feel it through and through  And i'm ready for whatever happens next  You’re gonna destroy me I know this already  And I’ll never live it down Love your love will get the best of me It’s the deepest sea And I’m willing to drown waking up these daysunder a buzzing floaty hazeand a feeling like i never had beforesomething's bound to giveit's the way everybody livesbut i'm choosing to simply ignore it come get it nowi need you nowi need you nowmy shields are downit's your turn nowit's your turn now You’re gonna destroy me I know this already  And I’ll never live it down Love your love will get the best of me It’s the deepest sea And I’m willing to drown
9.
Go slow while chasing ghosts Keep you eyes....open Don’t let them fool you Fight you or break you The truth they can undo The past knows no bounds Tread lightly through the mist Of things you’d hoped to forget You can’t change what happened You can’t change what was You might change yourself But the past can’t be undone Go slow This will take some time Go slow Who knows what you might find And if things are no longer  what you thought they were There’s more to discover Just don’t close your eyes
10.
I’ve got a bad bad habit Of needing you to know That no one else will love you As much as I can show I can turn it up so loudly  You can’t tell what i’ve said My knees are red and scarred From all my give give give I’ve got a bad bad habit Of telling it like I do With the mindfulness of a scientist On the verge of a breakthrough  Lost in every thought i’ve ever Thought about you I’ve got a bad bad habit Of turning love into ruins

Ooh Boy 04:10
ooh boy ooh boy what'd you do this time you brought me to my knees on the hardwood floor all i could do was say please don't say anymore guess no one's as they seem don't know what to believe ooh boy ooh boy what'd you do this time you led me on a string through a field of fog all the lines you would feed me though you knew all along it's like i didn't mean a thing it's like i was the fling oooh you knew it would hurt you knew it would kill but still you made your choice and you chose to hurt me and that's what you did this time ooh boy what you did this time
