Track Name: Love and the Open Road
i know i'm getting older now
need to start thinking about my future
how are my investments coming along
when i'm old, i know i want comfort

i'm not ready yet
i'm not ready yet

you know i really should saving for a house
should consider doing my masters
probably should have started my own family by now
maybe i should reconsider my lover

i'm not ready yet
i'm not ready yet

wouldn't your time be best spent somewhere else
hang your dreams up on the shelf
and put your time to something that pays off
or couldn't you put your money with your mouth
take the leap and risk it all
chase those dreams your heart most desires

things like love
the open road
things like love
the open road

i've always been a realist
sometimes i wish i could be more stupid
wish i could leave my head up in the clouds for a bit
i've heard it's fun to just be foolish

i'm not ready yet
i'm not ready yet

wouldn't your time be best spent somewhere else
hang your dreams up on the shelf
and put your time to something that pays off
or couldn't you put your money with your mouth
take the leap and risk it all
chase those dreams your heart most desires

things like love
the open road
things like love
the open road

maybe one day you will call my phone and
and it won't ring at all
cause it is somewhere lying on the road

maybe one day you'll stop by my house
and you'll find it emptied out
cause i am somewhere very far away

chasing love
the open road
it just takes love
and the open road
Track Name: Quiet Revolution
come let us walk have our feet melt into sand and watch the water breathe
oh as the clouds weave round and tell their tall tales we dream peacefully

we can taste lust and revelation as we let routine fade
oh could we see a quiet revolution if we lost track of days

places we go
places we've been
places we love
places we dream

the heaving chest of the dirt where our feet dance we sing to the trees
oh as we sink and swim and run and find our love in the great mystery

as she weaves her way up around my spine the spinning keeps me quiet
oh we can run ten thousand miles but distance can't heal violence

places we go
places we've been
places we love
places we dream

who are we to tell the sun when to set
who are we to think we've moved past regret
and who are we to bring the oceans to calm
who are we to think we have mastered love

places we go
places we've been
places we love
places we dream
Track Name: Keep Your Hope
oh my child where have you been sleeping
oh my child why have you not been dreaming
oh heavy load why have you not surrendered
oh heavy sighs from the damages rendered

hey slow right down
you’re too fast
we can not get hold of you
keep your hope
we will fight to
make this better

oh my child I want you to sleep easy
oh my child I want your memory to
fade in the night take those nightmares from you
oh I would save you if I just knew how to

hey slow right down
you’re too fast
we can not get hold of you
keep your hope
we will fight to
make this better

keep your hope

hey slow right down
you’re too fast
we can not get hold of you
keep your hope
we will fight to
make this better
Track Name: Move Me
let me put my eyes on you
so i can see your very bones
let me put my eyes on you
so we can break down all these walls
that we've built

let me put my hands on you
let it all just wash away
let me put my hands on you
isolation makes us slaves
to ourselves

oh love won't you move me
Track Name: Lay My Burdens
there is freedom
in the failings
where I lay my burdens down

my heresy
lies deep within me
I will forego all my crowns

oh you can find me
in the lovely
sogginess of sin

oh could we burn these
countless bridges
as we conquer all our kin

expectations
of salvation
hungry mouths gape at the cave

clear is easy
we don't want trouble
ignorance keeps us all slaves

oh has this come to pass
i'm a lost cause
compromising flaws

oh has this burned so fast
my core washed out
i'm a choosy sell out

i choose the names I've earned
keep your iron stance
i'll do the sinners dance

we choose the names we've earned
i choose lonely
i choose lonely

am I the only one for my apologies

i choose the names I've earned
keep your iron stance
i'll do the sinners dance

we choose the names we've earned
i choose lonely
i choose lonely
