Ten straight days in a room by myself Questioning the state of my mental health I flutter my wings but I'm too afraid to fly Terrified of living Too brave to die Tried to stay sober Didn't make it too far Eighteen hours and I'm heading back to the bar Trying not to fantasize about crashing my car Wheels on the white lines Eyes on the stars Every night I have to fight The ghost in me Constantly in the debate life in hell or heaven in a grave Late one night the wine was running low I finally felt a tug on my little heart radio When I thought of my brother trying to tell his son how to say goodbye Blubbering like a baby, squeezing grease from his eyes (Chorus) All my blood would feel the flood of shame on their name And all of the love they once had for you would be replaced With your same pain (Chorus)

Sorry 02:04
I'm sorry, so sorry For what I done, or what I didn't do My heart is on your pillow case Do with it what you will I tried so futilely to right all of the wrongs By singing you I'm sorry in these stupid fucking songs But you know that I'll still love you Even though your mercy is gone

Before the rain came I met a sweet thing She changed everything but my name Opened my eyes, mended my wounds And showed me how my heart could move Before she went away she spent a thousand days Spinning it around like a top And when the news came, I finally knew pain When I felt that spinning stop (Chorus) On cold stone Out in the rain I'll spin this top On her grave Standing in the rain while the seasons change With nothing but my hollow name Nothing left to fear, I traded all tears For a new mirror and an old shoe box Filled with her pictures and letters And a rose that knows the tune of wilting alone And the remnants of her scent still lingers on the letters In the box where the flower fades (Chorus) Since shes been gone, I've been trying to get a move on But I just can't find the strength in me to leave Been cemented in this ditch, I've barely moved an inch It seems my feet they don't obey me Then Adam showed me his brand new tattoo He said the world don't stop turning just for you Yeah, love can jade you and stain your heart blue But Jack, it still moves (Chorus)

Carving 04:37
Hands dance on a thin silver line Infatuated fingers crawl up and down your evening spine And I trace your lips And surf your hips And drink in this moment while we exist I'm carving my heart into your shape For when our lives change Or if my mind fades Then until my dying day I will Have you some place And you let your hair down You let your hair down You let your hair Down on me and the feeling Falls all over me Falls all over me Falls all over me I'm feeling something like a new born king Like I'm right where I'm supposed to be Slowly rocking on a tire swing Beneath the baby green canopy of your eyes And the maple leaves The hearts your soul's radio You better tune in to the signal It will let you know your not alone It'll beat on you when its whole I feel it beating on me beating me beating on me beating on me I feel you Fall all over me Fall all over me You fall all over me I'm carving my heart into your shape For when our lives change Or if my mind fades Then until my dying day I will Have you some place

I first saw your feathers in an old dressing room My eyes were scratching at the pinks and the blues Felt an old dream come knocking but I didn't let it in Told the miner in my heart not to dig here again Broken voices sigh in my head on this hard wooden floor Only fools close their eyes when the light is knocking on the door Blue feathers fade into the floor Blue feathers fade into the floor Heard a jackal sing a tune about roaming around In a cold dank dark world underneath the ground No feathers or pink lips or greedy old men No light to miss if you never let it in Broken voices sigh in my head on this hard wooden floor Only fools close their eyes when the light is knocking on the door Blue feathers fade into the floor Blue feathers fade into the floor
