My Own Bad Dreams Why do I wake up sad for no reason Like my own bridge was burned in sleep Rise on an island Just me and my own bad dreams Heart like butter in the sun Mind like wine left in a mug Why do I want things I’ve never seen Miss places I’ve never been before Spiritually speaking Who’s even keeping score Eyes like skies during the pour Breath like coals already burned I don’t mind wasting your time Feels like I’m falling behind Someday I’ll think of these simpler times And remember me fine and smiling Then cross my bridge on fire And enter my own bad dreams Why don’t you stay here with me From the shore we can look out to sea
He’s Not Gonna Call He’s not gonna call and all of the day I decide To believe that he might, now I’m lonely tonight It sure is painful loving someone cruel He sure got the best of me Cut loose in the woods He’ll lose with the rest of me And nobody believes it like they should How do I stop lying to you Maybe light involve the truth How do I keep holding on to fools like you
Trace Chain 03:38
Trace Chain Songbirds at sunrise, and I’ll complain about the noise My patio is a little large For me to enjoy What am i doing, I got so much to fix myself I can’t keep living my life Knowing I bring you down Down in the dumps Standing out in a crowd Should we say it out loud That the past so heavy And the void of letting go Makes a cloud around me When I think of what you know The whole damn thing is in lightning And maybe I can’t do anything right If I’m dead to you really Guess it’s time to say goodbye What am I doing I’ll love the sun and all it shines on Wake at dawn or at least try Forget I’m feeling like A pile of dirt Standing out in a crowd Should I say it out loud It’s not the strength I need to keep going It’s not the sense of growing apart Just keeping growing But the end that’s finally here After a long start And the wind that’s been Nippin at my heels The horizon is far But it makes my heart say Yeah man I drove But I still don’t know much About how you feel If you knew I was hurt Felt sorta worthless You kept an even keel The one time you cried Burned in my mind Dancing in the kitchen And timewarp rides My whole world’s pretend And you don’t even bend To save us again
How To Thank A Friend How do you thank a friend For their heartbreaking presence For their undivided attention When you’re withering You say I’m the water Lapping up against a wall I feel that so completely Flowing churning deeply Yet stuck after all How do you thank a friend With fires bright and fighting fair Keep on talking Cause you know they care Lead me now to brighter times I only loved you Cause I loved you blind I loved you blind How to do what you intend Now that your plans got broken And soft words you weren’t sure you’d say Never get spoken You show up at seven When the summer sun’s still up I see your sadness clearly Mad at your mystery Yet stuck after all How do you thank a friend With iron sides and steely stares Keep on walking you’re a joke I swear Lead me down the path to find I only loved you Cause I loved you blind I loved you blind He told me that I should forget it It don’t matter anyhow Wow it’s been awhile since I let it Chew me up and spit me out That fear’s like fate like drown-me-out Wield my weight like solemn sound How do you thank a friend
