Track Name: Mother
Touch me with the grace you do, hardly and intangible
Treat me to a word or two silent and impractical
Tonight'll be the one I put an end to,
Tonight'll be the one I put an end to.

Touch me with the grace you do, hardly and intangible
Treat me to a word or two silent and impractical
Tonight'll be the one I put an end to,
Tonight'll be the one I put an end to,
Tonight'll be the one I put an end to.

You, you have been on my mind
You have been on my mind forever.
You, you have been on my mind
You have been on my mind forever.
Forever, forever, forever, forever.
Track Name: Boxes
Every day, I wait in line
Every single day, to see you smile
But when you go,
Over your shoulder, catching my eye
Will it be 'see you'?
Was it 'goodbye?'

By the train, you walk alone
Talking on the phone, the birds are easy to ignore
Leaving the station, leave me behind
But what does it matter,
A beautiful skyline?

Emma, I never knew the words to tell you,
But by now, I'm strong enough to tear down all these
Boxes, are getting in the way of it.

Every day, I waited here
Every single day, I wonder where you could've gone
Closed up in boxes, closed every door
When will you notice outside your window?

Every day, I used to wait in line
Now every single day, I'm alone
Come out of your boxes, you've left me behind
But what does it matter,
A beautiful skyline?
Track Name: August
What would I become without you?
If I had to be without you?
I would be so numb without you,
If I had to be without you.

I fall asleep and all that I am seeing,
Dreams come to me of all that I believe in.
Seems clear to me that all I ever need is you.

What would life be like without you?
Nothing would be right without you.
What could I believe without you?
Oh, I could never live without you.

I fall asleep and all that I am seeing,
Dreams come to me of all that I believe in.
Seems clear to me that all I ever need is you, you.

You make me love more than I could know
You make me alive.
Track Name: Exit Hymn
Lovely shapes to the world descending,
Brothers and sisters.
Lovely shapes to the world descending,
Brothers and sisters
Mute.

Oh, darkness
Light the way.
All was stone but all is clay
Who will hold us when we're not
Brothers and sisters, brothers and sisters
Brothers and sisters
Mute.
Track Name: The Backpack Song
Backpack on my back, walking down a railroad track
Oh, I've been wanting to see you
Eyes upon the rows of trees, an endless sea in front of me
Oh, I've been longing to see you

You've been on my mind, talk about a lonely time
You don't know how much I need you
Once I feel the downy snow, the only home I've ever known
I'll hold you close when I see you

There's no way I could let you go
There's no way I could let you go
There's no way I could let you go

And it seems to me,
We sing soft and low
Such a sweet hello

Backpack on my back, standing on a railroad track
It won't be long 'til I see you
Why do I always have to leave the only one I'll ever need?
Now hold me close while I breathe you

There's no way I could let you go
There's no way I could let you go
There's no way I could let you go

And it seems to me,
We sing soft and low
Such a sweet hello
Track Name: Shine
I am a dreamer whose unconscious desire
Swims through an open sea.
All things about her are a constant reminder
All things are meant to be.

Nowhere to go,
Nowhere to go,
Nowhere to go.

Under the ocean, an eternal implosion
Gasping for all I need.

Nowhere to go,
Nowhere to go,
Nowhere to go.

I have seen a million stars,
If I chose one to call ours
All would see her
Nothing in the world could
Reach her shine.
Oh, reach her shine.
Oh, reach her shine.
