Track Name: 11:32
it's eleven thirty two
my eyes the pages of a letter unsent
it’s always later than i think
and still the ticking of the clock
it's justice ain't it
you never answer when i call

it's eleven thirty two
i've paid for mercies swallowed whole
it's the least that i can do
to give up pieces of my heart
that's just the way it goes
you never answer when i call

these are the things that i surrender
and these the parts that i embrace
i want a sweeping vision too
and wait for endless inspiration

it’s eleven thirty two
i've paid for mercies swallowed whole
it's the least that i can do
to give up pieces of my heart
it's justice ain't it
you never answer when i call
Track Name: Dumbstruck
it won't add up, this combination
it makes no sense, the logic's flawed
it won't add up, this combination
it makes no sense, the logic's flawed

in spite of all that
in spite of myself
because of all that
and just like that

you know that i was dumbstruck by you

i lost my head, i didn't mean to
one day it changed, from no to yes
i lost my head, i didn't mean to
one day it changed, from no to yes

because of all that
and just like that
in spite of all that
in spite of myself

you know that i was just dumbstruck by you
honey, i was dumbstruck by you

sometimes i guess that there's no choice
but to fall and look the fool
the time will come
that the fire of love
will consume all its fuel

i thought that i could hold at bay
and keep the goddamn thing away
but something snapped
and something broke
and in the end the joke's on me

you know- i was just dumbstruck by you
Track Name: Gray to Grey
everything has turned from gray to grey

it's the perfect end to another perfect day

what has piled up on my doorstep

i can barely see the top

i'm all dressed up for the afterlife

knocking on heaven's door


i waited for a call that never came

and patiently, for fun and fame

i could have had it all, you know

i should have seen it coming, but no

oh, how i love these blinders on

knocking on heaven's door

knocking on heaven's door


i guess it's a promise that's unfulfilled

a glass half full and even that got spilled

the meter's running and the money's gone

but i'll keep rolling 'til the wheels fall off

i'm all dressed up for the afterlife

and knocking on heaven's door

knocking on heaven's door
Track Name: Bitten
you might say that i've been bitten once too often
i say it hurts; it hurts when i get burned
people say that it takes two
i always heard that it takes two
you may find that it takes two
to dance
to make romance
it takes two to burn

some see armageddon around every corner
some find salvation on the floor
i say go and find
i had to go and find
you may have to find
somebody who cares
somebody who cares
find somebody who cares

see, i believe in a second chance
and i believe in the benefit of doubt
i believe in a partner for the dance
but i believe that i'll sit this one out
yes i believe that i'll sit this one out

some believe in the sanctity, the sanctity of life
while others just pay it lip service
i will not be a fool again
i will not be your fool again
i will not be that fool again
i'm sitting this one out
Track Name: Hard Knock Life
it's not a hard knock life
you get up in the morning and it's all right
in spite of how trite it may seem
there's only this one exceptional time

it's not meant to be
a path of pain at all
we're only alive to learn how to love
it wasn't meant to be
a path of pain at all
we're only here... to love

it's not a race to get to the top
you open your eyes to to see that you're there
and some divine finger or physical law
kept you; keeps you from falling

(chorus)

and if you believe
that it all keeps on spinning
that a golden mean is beyond explanation
if somehow there's something
that's bigger than you
how could it do anything but cherish us all
(chorus)
Track Name: Lifering
every word a lifering
every song a parachute
every welcome holds the promise of a christ
across a hair's breadth reach away
around each corner day by day

every sigh an opening
reflections that turn oracle
the promises are imminent
salvation's on the way

you have lost some thing (someone)
now you shall find it (him or her)
there comes a time when everything
will turn from loss into the prize
and scales will fall from our eyes

this day brings redemption
and sleep will come at last
this day brings redemption
and sleep will come at last
sleep will come at last
sleep will come
Track Name: Lost and Found
i loved you when you were in lost and found
oh, henry can you see me
i call your name out loud but you don't hear
for all the fairy tales that he's been telling you

i loved you better than that other man ever could
i think he's laughing behind your back
i'll try to talk you through another night
i'll listen to you 'til you're making sense again

you don't hear a word
you leave my heart in tatters
me, i wish that i could fly
straight into your arms
nothing else matters
you don't even see me, what's the use

(silent verse)
i see you’re headed back to lost and found
would you ask them if they’ve seen my heart
oh, henry, i hope you find what you’re looking for
Track Name: Ariel
yes, i've been drinking
maybe just a little too much
see, that's the thing; nearly every time
i'd hoped to do better

i can't seem to show up on time
to do the things i should
i tell you that i love you
but the proof is unclear

i'm drunk again- i know
i told you that i'd quit
but if you knew how bad it hurts
you'll let me slip again

i can't see past my fingertips
i can't complete a thought
i tell you that i love you
but the proof is unclear

your door is always open
you keep the fires warm
i'm too ashamed to walk on in
i just pile on more pain
Track Name: Betrayed
like a lover betrayed
how long would she be
unfaithful to me while i patiently wait

i've opened the blind eye
i'm turning away
i've said that's enough i've called it a day

how could all of those promises
have come to dead end
how did this bed grow so cold
will my heart ever mend

i'm leaving america
just like she left me
i'm turning my back i'm walking away

i'm leaving america
just like she left me
i quit this old longing for a love unfulfilled

how could she pretend
to forget my name
how could she believe
she bears none of the blame

i'm leaving america
just like she left me
i've waited too long for a love unfulfilled
i quit this old longing for a love unfulfilled
Track Name: Diamond Day
be a life of ease
every way to please
be the subject and the object of time

make a poor excuse
let a feeling loose
on the beating of a palette of air

force a diamond day
make a sunlight play
dappled glitter to litter my eye

cap a distant goal
play the hard won role
find sweet release in the word

answer beckoning light
welcome fear in the night
make a sunlight play on your eye
Track Name: Breathe
i know you, oh, so well
every hair on your head and its' proper place
every ridge upon your fingertips
as they trace those lazy pirouettes on my back
i know you

and i could watch you all night long
as you sleep in our bed
watch every breath that you take
through the night
watch your breasts
rise and fall
rise and fall
rise and fall

go to sleep my little angel
my mother would call out to me
in the dark
when the fear would overcome me
she said the pain of loss
is temporary
god is in her heaven
all's right with the world
go to sleep

close your eyes
and dream
sleep
sweet sleep
and dream

i know you, oh, so well...
