Evergreen 03:38
I came by 8:15 to meet my evergreen Evergreen, my evergreen With eyes as bright as light And a charming sense And I knew you could be My evergreen, evergreen My evergreen Embrace me with your branches all the time And whistle with the breeze day and night And watch the other trees shake their leaves Oh but you will stay with me My evergreen Summer skies roll by Even winter nights can't wither out the leaves Of my evergreen She glistens in the rain With that outer bark That can never, ever fail My evergreen Evergreen, my evergreen Embrace me with your branches all the time And whistle with the breeze day and night And watch the other trees shake their leaves Oh but you will stay with me My evergreen

I'm struggling to reconcile With Jesus under Maryjane I suppose the influence Makes me lazy to repent For things I cannot change But here we are again Chasing imaginary circles Round and around and around I cannot restore this old bridge That I had to burn But I promise… I was caught off guard When I saw you come out the other day Was it as bad as I did? Did you anticipate it, too? Well, you know there's still consequence To face for things we cannot change They'll say, “I love you but your sin Are you sure, is this really you?” My darling We cannot restore this old bridge That we had to burn But I promise it'll be alright It'll be alright We cannot restore this old bridge That we had to burn But I promise it'll be alright We will be alright

New Drugs 03:30
I need a new drug that kills all emotion So I can't feel this or anything Yeah, it's such a bitch ‘Cause I'm constantly moving Find a place to hide and be worry free Trapped in the subconscious Inches from your ghost I'm running from your shadow Are you worried now about my conclusions? Did I make a mess, or did you cause all this? Yeah, you're such a bitch You constantly haunt me I need a place to hide from you and all your sins Trapped in the subconscious Inches from your ghost I'm running from your shadow Five years I find myself fighting the need To make myself feel numb I am an addict in denial But man, I've had enough

Afloat 03:45
Well it's hard to stay afloat Especially at night When I'm all alone at my home With my thoughts and another glass of wine I've been contemplating Ending it all tonight But the thought of breaking your heart Is enough to make me think twice When the tapes become demagnetized And the leaves begin to fall Darling know that I'll still be around In your heart and in your mind So I apologize if I disappear I know I'm selfish and I'm tired Of coping with the things unknown And the ones I keep chasing off the road When the tapes become demagnetized And the leaves begin to fall Darling know that I'll still be around In your heart and in your mind So when I'm finally in my darkest hour And I'm giving up the fight Just the thought of breaking your heart Is enough to make me think twice

Sunday Morning I woke up with a cold sweat on my forehead I just dreamt that I was told to go Live on my own And I feel confused And I feel so lost And I feel alone and dry So I poured myself a glass of rye Red cups were empty Then I asked my friends to go for a drive But they wont let me I felt confused And I felt so lost And I still feel alone and dry Monday morning I woke up at home without memory But someone had written on my door To remind me You are not confused And you can't be lost And you will never be alone and dry
6.
Over Time 03:24
It's difficult to see it first When everything is such a blur Then you realize the end is creeping to a near They say it's better where you'll be Rest in the clouds where you can roam free No more tears and pain And no more uncertainty Overtime The constant fear we learn to dread When living things come to an end But we shouldn't be Because our fates are guaranteed Instead we should be living in The present time where we can be with Who we love and make our lives worth living in Overtime
7.
X-Oh 03:25
Trying not to spiral down Anxiety's a heavy crown Come on, love, come rescue me Over pillows Beneath the sheets And we'll sing “Oh…” Fiber optics and a screen Such a distance in between Can I fold a paper map So you and I can keep holding hands And sing “Oh…” Can't wait to get you on the phone Even better, you and I home alone Leaving the world outside the door Come and really make my heart overflow Really make my heart overflow Overflow, overflow
8.
I've done it before because I've been lonely Different people with the same heartbeat Handshakes to hugs, kiss on the lips She unlocks the door Then we rolled on the floor It's no mystery I'm singing old gospels in the dead of night I may not believe them but they sure have been kind Unlike time and love, who's shown me no mercy Wherever you are, I'm waiting for you With my saddest guitar I was impatient, I was unkind Made stupid decisions, backslide all the time And if you come, I hope you don't mind me I may be a mess But I'll do my best And give you my love I'm singing old gospels in the dead of night I may not believe them but they sure have been kind Unlike time and love, who's shown me no mercy Wherever you are, I'm waiting for you With my saddest guitar
