Track Name: This Love Will Be the Death of Me
When I said you were my soul
I wasn’t lying I wasn’t lying
When I said you were my rose
I wasn’t lying I wasn’t lying
When I said you were my one
I wasn’t lying I wasn’t lying
When I said you were my soul
I wasn’t lying I wasn’t lying


This love will be the death of me

When you said I was your soul
Were you lying were you lying
When you said I made you whole
Were you lying were you lying
When you said you had control
Were you lying were you lying
When you said I was your soul
Were you lying were you lying

This love will be the death of me
Track Name: Better Be
Why'd you have to go?
It's so dull in my room
Staring at the wall
Trying not to think of you

When will you return to me?
Better be soon, better be

I toss and I turn
I pace about the room
I curse and I yearn
For your familiar spoon

When will you return to me?
Better be soon, better be
Track Name: Ella
When we were nineteen and twenty we knew
Walls could be easily climbed or toppled
Every night an adventure with you
Just cause you're gone there's no need to stop them

Ella come back to us

You dropped off this dropout and checked into class
Turning your universe much more dreary
But I'm coming for you and I'm coming fast
You don't have to reason if you'll just hear me

Ella come back to us

Don't think that I'm not aware of the roots
That we've embedded since our ways parted
Well I will uproot them if you follow suit
You don't see it yet but you've already started

Ella come back to us

There's no need to jump in, there's no need to rush
Things are in motion that can't be halted
There's no need to leave all your ambitions crushed
There's no need to leave every old wound salted

Ella come back to us
Track Name: Ezekiel's Escape
I shouldn't go but I wanna go so I'm gonna go so farewell
And if you know where I'm gonna go don't you don't ever tell

I could stay for you but what's the use we're split in two down the seams
If you want me to stick around for you you'd better do nicer things

I'm taking off to where the freeway stops don't give no thought to tugging my leash
Cause I'll blow it off it's all a wash so don't give no thought to me
Track Name: I Want to Be There
I want to be there when you see what you have done to me
I want to be there when you walk in on the flood beginning
I want to be there when you drop all of the things you have wrought
Track Name: Eurydice
Left with a kiss by the side of the road
Two glossy lips are the softest I’ve known
I’m calling to you
Lights on and you drive off, I follow suit
Three lefts and four rights and we are on route
I’m calling to you

I’ll think of a number between one and ten
And ask you to guess when I see you again
And I will lie if you don’t guess right

Arriving, we briefly feel a lack of ease
You loosen your jacket, slip out of your sleeves
I’m calling to you
Hand in hand we take our place by the fire
Flames flicker shadows in shapes we admire
I’m calling to you

We might as well take the clocks off the wall
Hours and minutes mean nothing at all
We need no sleep
Tonight’s not a thing we can keep
