Track Name: Knife Wound
we didn’t see the blade
on an unlit night
no time to be afraid
when on an unlit night
knife wound
a new kind of love
is happening to us
a new kind of trust

we’ll never understand
what points us to a place
the evil side of man
what points him to a place
knife wound
where on the spot we stand
I’m reaching for your hand
a new kind of man

are we really cut
or is it just a dream
two rivers red with blood
or is it just a dream
knife wound
I want to memorize
the way I feel inside
the look in your eyes

I don’t want to be with anyone else
but you
if this is the end then
I’m satisfied with love
Track Name: Flood of Memories
flood of memories
inside of me
how can I explain
the boat I row is small and plain

flood of sweetness
and I confess
I’m so afraid to change
the boat I row is old and strange

who knows what the future holds
we’ll never really know
where we’re gonna go
only where we’ve been
let’s go back
let’s go back again

flood of moonlight
from a great height
on the night we stayed up late
I remember it was great
Track Name: They Never Were Our Friends
this is what they always wanted
they never were our friends
out in fields or up in mountains
every time a day begins
every time their arms extend in
fake and forceful ways
out in cars or home in kitchens
they never were our friends

imagine if you will a body
think of all its many parts
think of how they fit together
think of how they come apart
imagine now a battle raging
with pain and fear and pride
this is what they always wanted
we shouldn’t be surprised

I’m not happy I’m not even satisfied
I don’t like to think about the lies
they never were our friends
I don’t want to think about the end
Track Name: I Owe it All to You
I owe it all to you
no sentiment too small
each gift fills my chest
just like a breath
I owe it all

everything I tried to say
was covered in rhyme
when you had to choose
I knew I would lose
everytime

from the way I treated you
you needed to start anew
all our talks were tired then
it was the end

still
I owe it all to you
but I can’t repay
because of that fact
I’m on these train tracks
going away

each gift fills my chest
just like a breath
I owe it all
Track Name: Slow Blues
slow blues
I don’t even want to speak
all I want is to repeat
every day and every week

I spent with you
just being kind and true
I put away my walking shoes
just to be with you

let’s make this our time
everyone has one
this is yours and mine
this is yours and mine

slow blues
all I want is to stay still
it’s your love that leaves me thrilled
and I know it always will
