Track Name: Patient Blue Skies
(Instrumental)
Track Name: White Gold
I've got ink stains on my hands again
And old pains in my chest
I've been sweating these four seasons
And hoping for the best of me and you

Lose all those things that keep me from your side
I've been polarized and misconstrued; I’m a magnet in disguise

You are the whitest gold
Your radiance and luster flow so sweetly
So deeply through my soul

There’s just no better way to say it, you’re treasure at its best
I’m so sick of writing lament songs so sick of aching chests
So I’ll throw back to me and you and how we weren't meant
I never used to be like this, I guess it all makes sense

You are the whitest gold
Your radiance and luster flow so sweetly
So deeply through my soul

I’m not your average waste of love
I have a heart though it’s fucked up
Regardless, I know what you are
My cariad; my Queen of Hearts.
Track Name: Tidal Wave of Truth
I wrote some brand new songs so you can sing along
I’ll keep you safe inside my words; they’ll be the best you ever heard
I was so contrite ‘til you entered my life
You are a tidal wave of truth; I am an ocean through and through

I know I let you down
Sing it loud and come around
Those butterflies you gave me too
Are fluttering around my room

Pictures of you and I in sun-scorched Polaroid’s
I hold them close to my chest as I lay awake in my bed
Respectably complex, I scale the mountain of your neck
My hands caress your subtle skin; I plant my lips against your chin

I know I let you down
Sing it loud and come around
Those butterflies you gave me too
Are fluttering around my room

Don’t ever change
I've been dying to tell you “I love you.”

I’ll be here for you
I've said it all before, but this time it’s gonna be alright
This time it’s gonna be alright
Track Name: The Fragrant Rain
I hear the rain fall faster now
I've opened up to subtle sounds
They fill the void inside my chest
The fragrant rain, your lucid scent

I fall asleep without your eyes
To nullify this anxious mind
A myriad of lustful thoughts
You were my precious queen of hearts

Now you’re pushing me away

I’m falling apart
You’re the only thing to fix this shattered heart
But you’re pushing away
From all the colors that I spilled inside your thoughts
I’m placing my faith
In this worthless, filthy, brilliant work of art
Track Name: Consider This
Consider all the times I've been there
Consider me an option for tonight
And I think things are getting better
‘Cause I think I want you in my life

What do you say?
Will you run away today?
I’m still here I've been waiting
For years and years and years
I've got three last words that say “I love you”
And I've got you here

Consider this my final warning
I’m leaving here for Cali in the morn
And I think you should take my offer
I think that you should take my hand

What do you say?
Will you run away today?
I’m still here I've been waiting
For years and years and years
I've got three last words that say “I love you”
And I've got you here

If I’m not what you want me to be
I don’t care at all what you think of me
I’m a cursive script with no plot or hook
I’m a parallel, I’m an empty book
And if there road we take is worn and frayed
We won’t forget what brought us here
It was the truth we sought
It was the love we brought
It was the way we fought our greatest fear
Track Name: Polar Opposites
A breath of inspiration fills my lungs
As nervous perspiration fills my pores
I clasp my hands together, hold my breath
It's visible; it's palpable

Sweet magnet will you polarize my soul?
We are not drifting towards nothing
There’s something strong that pulls me closer to home

Your eyes like rays of sunshine flooding my soul
Tick, tick, talk the time away forever and a day
The flame in your heart is burning my soul
It will not flicker, no,

Our poles won’t keep us apart
I felt the current that was tugging at your heart
Rip me from every worn-out word I spoke

The flame in your heart
Is burning through my soul

Reoccurring dreams of what could be
Will I end up happy?
Am I strong enough to know?

Do you hear what I hear?
The lines that I held dear
They all will go untold
What were you saying?

Oh, the lights that breathe and the walls that speak
Are stumbling on words I could not keep
So quiet down the North and South
I've been living with my head up in the clouds
Track Name: Tuning Heartstrings
Falling fast, I hold onto the scent of you
And hope it lasts ‘til next time
Both our hearts are beating ever patiently
In hopes that they will find love

You’re sound asleep, buried in my arms
I’ll hold you close to me forever

‘Cause you make every day I live worth living

Emerald eyes shimmer in the sunlight
As we sit outside together
First of May, Spring is in the air
And we could live this way forever

Holding close to every single word you spoke
Please know I won’t forget you

‘Cause you make every breath I take worth breathing

The key to your heart is a lump of clay
I will shape it into anything you say

‘Cause you amaze me more with every day
