I close my eyes I see inside my mind Watch you crawl inside Watch you come alive And I try to shake you out I try to fight it I rewrite these pages a thousand times I try to fight it All these critics in my head I lie in silence Beneath miles of endless sky You’re waiting in the wings You’re pulling all the strings And I try to shake you out I try to fight it I rewrite these pages a thousand times I try to fight it All these critics in my head

Jet Lag 02:24
I'm writing these words down On little paper napkins Scattered on the floor of this dirty hotel room Hallways and runways And luggage tags and fast food Choking on the scent of musk and old perfume I'm just a ghost on days like these A silent drifter no one sees Collecting memories but they're all a hazy dream Lay down my head and go to sleep I'm fighting with jet lag It's got its lifeless hooks in me Swimming through this fog for thirteen hours on a plane Tossing and turning In this tiny little tin can Hearing the incessant hum it drives me insane I'm just a ghost on days like these A silent drifter no one sees Collecting memories but they're all a hazy dream Lay down my head and go to sleep I'm tired and numb now I can't feel anything at all I carry this baggage A ball and chain that weighs me down I'm just a ghost on days like these A silent drifter no one sees Collecting memories but they're all a hazy dream Lay down my head and go to sleep

I wish I could dry your eyes tonight Keep your chin to the sky These bags packed by the door You say "Daddy please don’t go this time" My heart drops to the floor Wrap your arms and don’t let go There’s one thing I want you to know When I’m so far from home I whisper to the wind listen as it blows Don’t be afraid Even when I’m halfway round the world Your love shows me the way I wear your love on my sleeve Walking through rainbow daffodils For all the world to see And when you can’t help cry Close your eyes and listen closely To hear this lullaby Your portrait tucked inside my suitcase Brings life to brighten up the gray walls of this place When I’m so far from home I whisper to the wind listen as it blows Don’t be afraid Even when I’m halfway round the world Your love shows me the way To you

Ghosts 05:04
I can hear the voices coming through Playing all our favorite songs we knew Static from this old busted radio Feel the afterglow This dusty room fills up with ghosts So many friends I've lost in time We faded out before the line Some I loved and won't forget That I regret But the regret has faded too Remember everything we had And it haunts us from the past We know we can't go back New friends around me breaking bread Eat drink and be merry is what they said The flames are dancing round the stars We've come so far Trying to find my way back home Remember everything we had And it haunts us from the past We know we can't go back

Coming Home 02:16
I don't wanna be alone with my suitcase anymore Sick and tired of picking up my drunk ass off the floor These weeks go by so slowly I can't breathe it drives me crazy I just can't wait til I get home Everything I see out here reminds me of your face And how you'd love this scenery but it's just not the same Oceans and miles between us My mind is spinning and I'm losing focus I just can't wait til I get home All these nights in hotel rooms Detached and singing out of tune Just one more restless night In the morning I'll be coming home to you I'll be Coming home to you
6.
The creaks and groans of this old house Echoes of the past Shake me to my bones, keeping me awake The soundtrack to the night I walk these halls Through the pale white walls All I have is this bottle and a song No one here to help me sing along Turn down the lights There's peace in lonely nights Light the fire with newspapers of yesterday Catch a glimpse of optimistic headlines Going up in smoke These old and empty rooms Are catacombs and tombs All I have is this bottle and a song No one here to help me sing along Turn down the lights There's peace in lonely nights Nights like these
7.
Broken 04:13
The ticking of the clock A ringing in my ears The buzzing of the walls Is all that I can hear The colors aren’t as bright The flowers don’t smell sweet I’m starting to think There’s something wrong with me Don’t let them see you broken Don’t let them know The sweat is dripping down But I can’t feel my toes My arms begin to shake There’s a burning in my throat My voice starts to break My nose starts to bleed I’m so damn tired But I can’t get to sleep Don’t let them see you broken Don’t let them know
