Track Name: How Long to Get Home
One day you'll find it easy to leave,
and one day the door will be hard to close.
If life's too short, my laces are tied.
Tomorrow is a better day to die.
If I don't mind, I'll never find my way back home.
If I don't climb, I'll never know what I could know.
You're right. I'll finish what's started.
I'm in a hurry to get nowhere in my head.
It's in my head.
You're right. I'll finish what's started.
You're right. It's me that I'm running from in my head.
It's in my head.
One day you'll find it easy to leave,
and one day the door will be hard to close.
If life's too short, my laces are tied.
Tomorrow's still a better day to die.
Track Name: Ringside
I know I'm not the one that you hoped for
to kick open your door, steal you into the night.
These hands are always empty.
These sleeves, once full of bright, and shining things you love.
I'm no good at these jokes, and you're too pretty to not be laughing.
Do I mind that I still wait by the ringside?
I was tangled in the branches.
Saw you treading in the water.
You never asked to be held down,
you only asked to be held when your bed felt a little too cold.
I don't mind your mistakes.
I hope you don't mind my excuses.
Do you mind that I still wait?
I know I'm not the one you wished for.
I always slip between the ropes.
Love; It distracts me, it destroys me.
Still, I wait by the ringside.
Track Name: Smile, It Makes This Easier
Filled it up with words that were never told.
All I do is laugh this off, like it's just a joke.
But I was just too scared, and you were a little too brave.
So we'll smile like it makes it easier.
Despite how bad this may be sounding,
I'm a pro at holding back.
All my friends agree this is getting old.
All we do is laugh this off, like it's just a joke.
But you were just too scared, and I was a little too brave.
So we'll smile like it makes it easier.
Oh, I'm so tired of pretending this was my fault.
It's not my fault.
