Track Name: Light the Love
There's something in the air
in the leaves on the ground
rustling, rustling
you know you've got a fire
baby, light it up
oh, light it up

I forgot that the sea was watching me
Let this old heart beat tonight
oh, light it up
Light it up

You know all that you need is a fire
to light the love
You know all that you need is a fire
to light the love
light the love

It used to be simple
strike, spark, and flame
Now you feel
you've got to burn your name
oh, light it up
light it up

You know all that you need is a fire
to light the love
You know all that you need is a fire
to light the love
light the love

Some days I come alive
Blood is moving
And my gears stay in drive
Blood is moving
Come alive, come alive
Blood is moving
Come alive, come alive
Blood is moving

There's something in the air
in the leaves on the ground
rustling, rustling
you know you've got a fire
Light it up
Oh, light it up
Oh, light it up
light
it
up
Track Name: Count the Shadows
When I go walking
I count the shadows
I always have since I was a child
She calls it wisdom
says it's my "old soul"
I think it's the soul's suicide

Give it up to me
I want to be just like you

Living out of my head
Living out of my mind
Out of my head
Living out of my mind

How do you measure
The difference between
The way you play and the hand you're dealt

I must confess that
Every single day
I want to leave my cards face down on the felt

Give it up to me
I want to be just like you

Living out of my head
Living out of my mind
Out of my head
Living out of my mind

Oh, there's a fire
Every night in the sky
The stars, I can see 'em
I'm convinced I can be 'em
If I just learn how not to try
how not to try

When I go walking
I count the shadows
I always have since I was a child
She calls it wisdom
says it's my "old soul"
I think it's the soul's suicide
I think it's the soul's suicide
Track Name: Subterranean
You can barely see me when the sky goes black
When the sky goes black
But a wind, it blew and drew a line
from your heart to mine
and my dark went slack

Underground I go
I could be so much more than this, I know
But instead I disregard this oxygen
Go subterranean
I go subterranean
I go subterranean

I try to leave some kind of map
some sort of trail
to let my lovers come and follow me
they follow me and always fail

Underground I go
I could be so much more than this, I know
But instead I disregard this oxygen
Go subterranean
I go subterranean
I go subterranean

The first time that I fall
I could be down the road
Next, I've lost it all
I could have been something!
Keep me on the line
You keep me above the ground

You can barely see me when the sky goes black
When the sky goes black
But a wind, it blew and drew a line
from his heart to mine
and I aint going back
Track Name: Hard to Breathe
First the party was in moonlight
Then it bled into the day
Then the party went and swallowed
each 24 hours of the day

When it gets hard to breathe
don't breathe to hard
when those ghosts line up
in your own backyard
each one an old regret
you can't disregard
It gets hard to breathe
so don't breathe too hard

Then there is the matter of the telephone
I just let it ring and ring
I guess somewhere along the line
in fantasy and fancy wine
I forgot the simplest thing

When it gets hard to breathe
don't breathe to hard
when those ghosts line up
in your own backyard
each one an old regret
you can't disregard
It gets hard to breathe
so don't breathe too hard

First the party was in moonlight
Then it bled into the day
I guess if I'm going to find
something close to peace of mind
I better be changing my ways

When it gets hard to breathe
don't breathe to hard
when those ghosts line up
in your own backyard
each one an old regret
you can't disregard
It gets hard to breathe
so don't breathe too hard
Track Name: Right on Time
I am so cynical
hard-headed and blind
I am faithless, I am tired
And bursts of confidence
have yielded little motion
it takes a lot for me to be inspired

but you are magic
you're laughing at me
as you dangle from the tree's weakest limbs
because I'm so tragic
it's all I know how to be
singing from my big blue book of hymns

now the ground is falling down from under me
but I move right on time
everything you wanted to show me
I see right on time
I feel you right on time

I am a storm cloud
all weighted and gray
ready to rain down on all that's dry
and you are the sun
the only smiling one
that keeps me suspended in the sky

now the ground is falling down from under me
but I move right on time
everything you wanted to show me
I see right on time
I feel you right on time

I feel you coming down

most of my days
run in blues and grays
with a few red-alerts
and when I feel my joy
it's brief but I feel it
so deeply it hurts

now the ground is falling down from under me
but I move right on time
everything you wanted to show me
I see right on time
I feel you right on time
