Track Name: Tomorrow Asking Why
I know what it would be like if you stayed out of my life
Another year and month tomorrow asking why
What would it be like if you took the final step and tried
To find out how we fit in each other's lives

Always two ships in the night that could never reach but saw each other's lights
And the walls put up between us not our own design
Ain't you filled up with hearsay and rumor
Don't your heart burn with the way another turns the phrase
Aren't you curious what we can't leave this behind us
What can be between us ain't it time to say

I know what it would be like if you stayed out of my life
Another year and month tomorrow asking why
What would it be like if you took the final step and tried
To find out how we fit in each other's lives

And this ain't healed with time
Won't ask you to pretend I can not deny
The harm and hurt used to inspire
Maybe we both don't understand the moves each other needs to play out our hands
And found refuge in the distance

I know what it would be like if you stayed out of my life
Another year and month tomorrow asking why
What would it be like if you took the final step and tried
To find out how we fit in each other's lives
Track Name: Just a Game
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game

I can be starving without a home
You still keep your love way from my door
On the verge of extinction
And I can pour out my heart but you still can't tell it apart from your ego
Where the hell was I supposed to go

Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game

No time for thoughts of what might've been I'm out here
Grasping for oxygen
While your table more than full
You run your hypothetical trials
What will never come leaves you paralyzed
While I'm out here searching for shelter alone on the road

Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game

I spose the greatest tragedy is you ain't got the space to see
Your heart ain't got a home
You can turn your head so many times
But sooner or later you realize
You broke off a piece each time you turned it to stone
And I would rather be poor than so far removed
Rather lost then making myself choose to do this
I would never do the same to you

Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game to you
Just a game
Track Name: Thanks for Waiting
Thanks for waiting
Don't know when I'll be coming back
Thanks for watching the train leave the station
Without throwing yourself on the track
Thanks for waiting
Sometimes it's what you do not do
Got to find the life i want to live
So I can bring it back home to you

Ain't no guarantees
And I might not find the things I need
But I love you too much to let us use each other
Till our hearts are bitter and gone
Not cause I'm trying to be strong
But cause I know my weakness and I've heard this song
Know the dark that I can be and how I'm fraid to be alone

Thanks for waiting
Don't know when I'll be coming back
Thanks for watching the train leave the station
Without throwing yourself on the track
Thanks for waiting
Sometimes it's what you do not do
Got to find the life i want to live
So I can bring it back home to you

Ain't about fidelity
The will to live for most seems to come so easy
Not running from my problems they always seem to jump the line
We both know the better part of me was stole
Got to find them or give them a place to grow
Or I'll start stealing other pieces
Doing as I was told

Thanks for waiting
Don't know when I'll be coming back
Thanks for watching the train leave the station
Without throwing yourself on the track
Thanks for waiting
Sometimes it's what you do not do
Got to find the life i want to live
So I can bring it back home to you
Track Name: It is What it Was
It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy

Just becuase the petals fall
Don't mean the colors never grew
There is no distance between you and me
No time to keep on moving through
we've chrystallized the light
but it can still warm us in memory
No drop in sight
No cause to claim
Had to leave so together we could remain


It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy

Creation has it's own life if you'll let it
Maybe it's time to burn your chest with the ashes
So rode and restless
That you find yourself claiming what is yours to be
Something I could never have if it wasn't taken away from me

It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy

Keep in mind the road you walk ain't for you to walk alone
There are centuries of souls with your experience as their own
We're here to touch thelives of those still fighting in the fray
Even with your flaws you show them all
Life starts new every day

It is what it was
Beautiful and lucky
It is what it was
Inevitable like a tragedy
It was what it is
Sad and lucky
It was what it is
Beautiful tragedy
It is what it is
Beautiful tragedy
